For anyone who has either personally experienced or witnessed a healing transformation, the fact that the body has unlimited healing power is a no-brainer.  It is one of the most miraculous machines we will witness in our lifetimes, but virtually no one takes heed or expresses gratitude for the amazing feats it can perform,  including those it does on a daily basis without our knowledge.


Virtually everyone has been trained and poisoned to believe that the unlimited power of the body and mind is nothing but an urban myth. They are convinced that stories of transformation don’t really exist, and are fabricated or severely exaggerated by those who experienced them.

The blunt reality is that your belief in the power of your body to heal itself, has been reduced to that of a chained elephant.

How you became a victim of “chained elephant” syndrome

Have you ever been to the circus and wondered how the elephant that is chained to a small post in the ground, doesn’t have the power to uproot it with a simple tug? After all, these magnificent and incredibly strong beasts weigh on average between 8,000 to 15,000 lbs, so ripping out a short stake in the ground should be complete child’s play.

The problem is, the elephant is completely unaware of it’s own power. It has been trained to believe it has no hope of escaping, so has simply given up trying to pull up the stake.

Allow me to explain.

At a very young age these circus elephants had similar chains attached to their leg, but the only difference then was that these chains were actually bolted into cement (not just tied to a stake in the ground), so no matter how much effort these baby elephants put into trying to escape, they simply couldn’t get away.

These baby elephants continue to struggle and pull this chain for weeks on end, trying to escape, until one day, they give up. They now realize that no matter how much effort they put in, they simply don’t have the power to uproot the stake and run free.

At that point in time, the baby elephant is trained. It has given up believing that it can escape the chain. So when these baby elephants become adults, they don’t even try to rip the chain and stake out of the ground (even though they could). They have been trained to believe there is no hope of doing so. So now it is completely chained there ONLY by its MIND. 

If the elephant never had that mental training as a baby, it would immediately rip out that chain and stake due to the sheer POWER it has to do so. But it doesn’t even attempt because its mind is now wired to believe (through previous experience) it doesn’t have that ability.

And this is what happens to millions of people everyday. They are taught by their “trainers” that there is no hope of escaping their illness, and they have to rely on their “handlers” to set them free with “scientific breakthroughs” while the answers are quite simply, staring them in the face.

Their mind has been limited to that of a chained elephant.

These people with chained elephant syndrome have no hope of escaping their illness because they will never believe anything other than what their handlers have trained them to believe. They are brainwashed into thinking their body has limited power and can only be saved through the “power” of synthetic drugs, slash and burn procedures, and poisonous injections.

However, for anyone who has “accidentally” found out that what they have been led to believe is a modern day jedi mind trick, they quickly abandon their “training” and seek to make up for all those years of being chained up by using the power they have been given as a human being. For those that are fortunate enough to plug into the truth, they can break the chain forever, and never be hostage to another lying handler again!

However, those who fail to recognize that their limitations are all in their mind, will be led down a road that keeps them in the medical circus for the rest of their life. They will never experience freedom to any real degree, and will live out their days at a mere fraction of their potential, with hopelessness and pain being an every day event.

Fortunately, people are becoming more aware of the ball and chain that has been levied upon their mind by the current medical establishment, and are waking up to the power they have been given. They are now seeking better training (health counsel), to realize their full potential and live a life of health freedom!

There is not a better feeling than having health freedom. Being able to fix yourself and reach your health goals. Whether it is 50 lbs of weight to lose, a digestive concern, a chronic disease condition, or just wanting to improve your overall health so you can live a life that is pain free and full of contentment, you have the POWER to do it. There is absolutely no mistaking that.

The only wild card is are YOU going to remain a chained elephant, or are you going to tap into YOUR true healing power and break the chains that have reduced you to something much less than you truly are at this moment.

Only YOU can decide if you want to live with the shackles of poor health, or be FREE of them. Your choice will follow you for the rest of your life, so please choose with your heart, not with your mind that has been polluted by those who don’t understand (or are trying to limit) your true power.

Only then can you break the chains of poor to average health.
