Self Esteem and the State of Health

Self Esteem and the State of Health

I have been intrigued recently by several Facebook posts that mentioned building self esteem.  This seems to be a pervasive issue, and has many health ramifications.  I want to share a section from one of my Ayurveda books that discusses the issue of self esteem. 

"Self-esteem is at the core of healing.  Because of the connectedness of mind and body, our sense of self-esteem is our cells' sense of self-esteem.  This is because, according to Ayurveda, every cell is a center of intelligence and awareness.  Every cell carries the sense of self for its own survival. It is the sense of self in the cell that maintains the size and shape of the cell.  Self-esteem, self-confidence and self-respect promote cellular intelligence, which is necessary for proper cell function and immunity.

"Modern science is just now acknowledging the importance of the mind-body connection, but knowledge of it has been part of Ayurveda for five thousand years.  Our sense of self, our attitudes and understandings, our feelings, are all psychobiological events.  Self-esteem is one such event, one that is strengthening to our cells and to all aspects of our bodies.  A lack of self-confidence and self-love is detrimental.

"Cancer is an example of this lack.  Cancer cells have lost their intelligence and grow separate from the body.  They are irregular and robust and have an isolated, selfish sense of self, which is in conflict with the life of normal, healthy cells.  When cancer occurs, it's as if a war is going on between the cancerous cells and the healthy cells.  If the healthy cells are strong enough in self-esteem, they can conquer and kill the cancer cells.  But if we do not have enough self-esteem and self-respect, then, the cancer cells will conquer the healthy cells.

"Thus self-esteem is important for maintaining immunity.  If you love yourself as you are, you will develop confidence, and that will heal disease.  That is why cellular immunity, or natural resistance, depends upon self-esteem."

Amazing that it could be this simple!  All physicians have to do is write a self-love prescription-

Making self-esteem is the one thing which has been drawing the attention of every person which is being concern. It is all about getting to know about the goal that you have been trying to achieve.

Wow! You explained self-esteem in a very different manner. I love how it is connected to your biological being rather than just an emotional or mental aspect. Upon reading your post, I should say that I learned and realized how important it is to improve one's self-esteem because it has a deeper connection within your body, and not just in your mind. Thank you for writing and posting this article. I hope that many people will read this and realize the state of their self-esteem.
