“…or maybe you’re “combating” or “fighting” a disease. Have you ever thought about the words you or your doctor are saying? “We will fight this battle together!” Even in obituaries comments like “they lost the battle…” are very common. These words and phrases have the opposite effect of healing; they send the body running in the opposite direction! Instead, think on these words, “healing the illness, restoring harmony,and bringing balance into every cell.” To me, this is more apt to promote healing than using war metaphors.
