Medical Discovery: Our Beliefs Control Our Behavior, and Our Behavior Determines Our Results
Dr. Edward Marshall, a Los Angeles based physician, has shown the absolute link between what each of us believes on any subject, and our behavior on that subject. Why is this important? “Because the results we get for our lives are determined by what we do or don’t do,” says Dr. Marshall.
And, the good news is that if we don’t like the results we are getting, we can change our beliefs on that subject. That will change our behavior, which in turn will change our results, Dr. Marshall says. “Simple, yet profoundly important and useful”, says Dr. Marshall.
Dr. Marshall first discovered, while working with narcotic addicts in Methadone Clinics, that patients who came to believe that they no longer needed narcotics to reduce stress levels, were actually able to wean themselves off Methadone, which is an extremely addictive narcotic drug.
The addicts had believed that it was not okay to tell trusted people in their lives what was bothering them and what their negative feelings were, such as anger, disappointment, sadness, etc. So, when they discovered that narcotics would reduce the stress and their pressures of life, they came to believe they needed narcotics. When they changed their belief to “it’s okay to tell people, that I trust, what is bothering me”, the stress would be reduced without narcotics, and those people then believed they did not need narcotics and therefore stopped using them, Dr. Marshall states.
Later, when studying lifetime slim people who had never dieted, and who seemed incapable of gaining weight, Dr. Marshall found that all of those people believe in eating only because of the necessity of physical hunger, and believe that there are no other valid reasons to eat. For example, they lose their appetites under stress, don’t believe in cleaning their plates, eating as a hobby, or eating because of emotions such as sadness, anger, boredom, disappointment, loneliness or frustration. They also believe that feeling physically full is a bad, miserable thing that should be avoided.
Dr. Marshall found that overweight people who adopted the beliefs of the lifetime thin people, could lose weight without dieting, drugs, or surgery. Similarly, some people who had never been overweight, changed their beliefs, so that, for example, they began eating as a hobby, as a fun thing to do, or for stress. Those people became overweight for the first time in their lives.
As a result of these discoveries, Dr, Marshall has recently launched a website, DrEdmarshall.com, also reachable as DrEdSolvesIt.com, which offers Guides to people who want this self-help way to resolve issues such as overweight, alcoholism, drugs, smoking, and issues with relationships, careers, and much more. “Adopt the beliefs that cause the behaviors you want,” says Dr. Marshall, “and that problem is solved. Your beliefs determine what you do or don’t do, and your behavior gives you the results you get.”
