Breaking Bad Habits: Mindful Addiction Recovery

Al Jazeera English

Addiction is defined as a harmful relationship with a substance or behaviour.

It is commonly associated with smoking, alcohol and drugs. But as a condition it’s difficult to understand.

Do we treat it as a neurological disorder? Or is it a personality trait? And how can we best overcome it, when current treatments for addiction have a relapse rate of about 70 percent?

Dr Farrah Jarral travels to the University of Massachusetts to meet a psychiatrist who is using the power of the mind to overcome addiction.

Dr. Joe Dispenza: The Power of the Mind

Dr Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He has a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience and also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude.

Over the last 10 years, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in over 17 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain.

His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one’s brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities.

His new book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, the mind, and the body. The book explores “the biology of change.” That is, when we truly change our mind, there is a physical evidence of change in the brain.

As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease.

In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities in people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their mind, which then changed their health.

One of the scientists, researchers, and teachers featured in the award winning film, “What the BLEEP Do We Know!?” Dr. Dispenza is often remembered for his comments on how a person can create their day, which he discussed in the film. He also has guest appearances in the theatrical directors cut, “What the BLEEP Down the Rabbit Hole.. as well as the extended Quantum Edition DVD set.

Always Remember there is a Plan

What do you do when you find yourself feeling disappointed?   What leads us to this feeling that something or someone has let us down?  Is that we set our expectations too high and thus bring this on ourselves or is it that we have surrounded ourselves with people and things that are not meant to be a part of our journey and this is how they are weeded out?  The feeling of being disappointed is one of the hardest to reconcile because this feeling is often created by outside forces so it seems we are helpless in avoiding it.  However, being more conscious of the decisions we are making, the people that are involved in our lives and what our true expectations are will allow us to better prepare ourselves for this feeling.  Don’t be afraid to put your faith into something, just know if it doesn’t work out there may be a greater cause at work and this negative situation may very well turn out to be a positive one.  Prepare yourself for all possible outcomes in life and remember that every situation is working out just the way it was intended.  Whether good or bad, everything happens for a reason.
