Thinking healthy is a very important part of a burn survivor’s recovery.
It is easy to say your health depends on your positive and negative thoughts.
When first becoming a burn survivor or family member of one, you go through a
hard and unexpected time in your life. It is not easy to control the negative
thoughts and make the positive changes in your life. For a burn survivor, you
depend on your doctors, nurses, family members and others to help you recover.
Much of your thoughts can be negative, which has much to do with your
self-esteem. Thinking negative will cause you to feel like you are not worth
much. The visual change can cause you to feel ugly and a bad person. You will
then behave in that way.
Anger and depression has a lot to do with self-esteem. Anger and
depression has a direct affect on your health. Your body may become exhausted
after defending against your negative and stressful thoughts. All of us need to
view ourselves an individual who is not a ‘bad’ or inadequate person. Do not
live your life with a feeling of failure. You can achieve a sense of high
Born To Be A Healthy Individual
When you are born, with your parents help, you have positive feelings
about yourself. You do not even know about low self-esteem. You learn low
self-esteem from your experiences in life.
Studies have shown that most children under the age of one year, are
joyful individuals. As we all mature and go through failures, we are required to
learn and see the good in those encounters. That will result in tolerating your
mistakes, learning from them and moving forward. It is very important to
understand and accept that you are not born ‘bad’. Once that is accepted, you
will understand that you can do something about your negative feeling. Realize
that type of feelings, are not built-in and unchangeable.
Your Subconscious Mind
Your feelings occur from your subconscious mind. They are reactions to
what you feel and accomplish. You have no conscious control over these
reactions. If you think unconstructive thoughts, or think you are a terrible
human being, your subconscious mind is going to respond to those beliefs. When
you look upon what happens as harmful, you will react with fear, guilt, distress
or anger regardless of the real situation. When you think positive thoughts
about yourself or see the good in what happens, your subconscious will react
with feeling of admiration, satisfaction, pleasure, happiness, love, and other
positive feelings. This does not mean that destructive things will not occur.
It does mean you can be in charge of how your respond to them and how they will
influence you. When a destructive incident is finished, for example, you can
either continue to feel anguish or you can see it as something you dealt with
and feel good about yourself. Learn to see the good in each event in your life.
Negative Stress Hurts
When your self-esteem is low, you feel bad about yourself over 50% of
the time. You see things mostly from a negative viewpoint and thus you
experience negative emotions. This results in ongoing negative stress, which is
often felt as fear, anger, worry, and dissatisfaction about most of what you
are experiencing or thinking. This constant distress can severely strain your
body and may lead to many types of distress-related health problems as your
body tries unsuccessfully to compensate for this constant negative stress.
Normal Stress & Incorrect Timing
If you experience fear or anger when something physically threatens you,
this is the minds normal survival response. An example is when you see a fire.
You feel fear, your adrenaline would run at a rapid pace and you would either
go to a safe area or run away if possible. These reactions are caused by
terror, fight or flight syndrome. In today’s culture your mind may generate the
same psychological manifestation as a result of the fire’s attack on the human
body when you experience stress from other people or things. These feelings may
be hatred, fright, anger, or a multitude of other harmful emotions and may be
felt when there is no physical risk. They are basically in your mind and you
may not react negatively. Thoughts combined with feelings creates emotional
makeup. When this occurs unconstructively, you may have a timing issue. Your
body and emotions respond to a threat. If the functioning you develop in reply
to the risk remains after the “confrontation” is over, the outcome is
a timing difficulty. Over time this unrelieved stress may cause many health
problems. This is what occurs to individuals who have low self-esteem. They
continually experience fear when it has stopped. Their ideas generate negative
makeup in their bodies.
Changes That Create High Self-Esteem
First you must have an apparent awareness that that you are truly an
excellent individual. Then look at all the negative thoughts that disturb you.
Look at all the injuries you have received from other people and all those you
have caused other people. It is very important to look at all of these issues.
The following steps can help you achieve a high self-esteem:
A. Pardon others for any hurt they might have caused
B. Offer them permission to excuse you for any
destruction you may have caused them.
C. Pardon yourself for any damage that you may have
Those steps must be completed in order to help yourself. You can even
ask for forgiveness from an individual that is no longer alive. The experiences
you recall are alive in your own mind. Concealed feelings are never forgotten
and sooner or later it will bring about pain and sorrow. Forgiveness is the
means to correcting experiences in life. Keep in mind, you are chained slave to
someone you hate.
They may be completely happy, while you become ill living with negative
feelings. You must vigorously deal with the causes of your negative thoughts.
Once that is completed, you can begin the procedure of changing your practice
of thinking negatively about yourself and others. You can intentionally see the
“good” in events and people instead of the bad. You can learn from
any negative actions and have a chance to better yourself and grow. By seeing
the “good” in every happening in your life, you will be on the road
to building higher self-esteem and regaining your good health.
Self-Perception Makes The Difference
When you feel good about yourself and have a high self-esteem, the
distress of negative thoughts disappears. Is that a simple thing to do? Not
always, but that does not mean you should give up. You must begin to take the
steps in order to repair any damage that has been done to your mind and body.
Get the help you need in order to do so. With the help from you doctor, you can
reach the natural balance that you had when you were born. By adjusting your
diet, which can help your body achieve natural health, your self-esteem should
continue to get higher. In time you will reach your goals of good health and
happiness. That will result from the power that results from a healthy mind and

A family medical history is a record of health information
about a person and his or her close relatives. A complete record includes
information from three generations of relatives, including children, brothers
and sisters, parents, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, grandparents, and
Families have many factors in common, including their
genes, environment, and lifestyle. Together, these factors can give clues to
medical conditions that may run in a family. By noticing patterns of disorders
among relatives, healthcare professionals can determine whether an individual,
other family members, or future generations may be at an increased risk of
developing a particular condition.
A family medical history can identify people with a
higher-than-usual chance of having common disorders, such as heart disease,
high blood pressure, stroke, certain cancers, and diabetes. These complex
disorders are influenced by a combination of genetic factors, environmental
conditions, and lifestyle choices. A family history also can provide
information about the risk of rarer conditions caused by mutations in a single
gene, such as cystic
fibrosis and sickle
While a family medical history provides information about
the risk of specific health concerns, having relatives with a medical condition
does not mean that an individual will definitely develop that condition. On the
other hand, a person with no family history of a disorder may still be at risk
of developing that disorder.
Knowing one’s family medical history allows a person to
take steps to reduce his or her risk. For people at an increased risk of
certain cancers, healthcare professionals may recommend more frequent screening
(such as mammography or colonoscopy) starting at an earlier age. Healthcare
providers may also encourage regular check-up or testing for people with a
medical condition that runs in their family. Additionally, lifestyle changes
such as adopting a healthier diet, getting regular exercise, and quitting
smoking help many people lower their chances of developing heart disease and
other common illnesses.
The easiest way to get information about family medical
history is to talk to relatives about their health. Have they had any medical
problems, and when did they occur? A family gathering could be a good time to
discuss these issues. Additionally, obtaining medical records and other
documents (such as obituaries and death certificates) can help complete a
family medical history. It is important to keep this information up-to-date and
to share it with a healthcare professional regularly. If your family has one or
more of these features, your family history may hold important clues about your
risk for disease. People with a family history of disease may have the most to
gain from lifestyle changes and screening tests. You cannot change your genes,
but you can change unhealthy behaviours such as smoking, inactivity, and poor
eating habits. In many cases, adopting a healthier lifestyle can reduce your
risk for diseases that run in your family. Screening tests (such as mammograms
and colorectal cancer screening) can detect diseases like cancer at an early
stage, when they are most treatable. Screening tests can also detect disease
risk factors like high cholesterol and high blood pressure, which can be
treated to reduce the chances of getting a disease.
