Bruce Lipton, a world famous physician, educator and author is often quoted by his supporters as an icon of self-help and physical fitness. Born in 1906, Bruce Lipton obtained his medical degree from Harvard University and worked for the U.S. Public Health Service for over twenty years. He’s best known for his studies into the human mind and the universe of human consciousness.

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton reveals how our thought processes are connected to the physical body. In this book he explores how opinion can shape and control our conscious information processing and our behavior patterns. To understand how this works you need to look at how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, once we believe, our brains release chemicals called neurotransmitters, which flow through pathways in our brains. These neurotransmitters are responsible for organizing all our thinking, communication and bodily functions.

Our thoughts, emotions, memories, skills, wisdom and creativity are all produced by these neurotransmitters. But it’s important to understand that our thinking is not solely a function of our mind. Our body, including our mind and unconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker believing can manifest in many different ways, from poor concentration and problem solving to cranky, angry and anxious.

Because our conscious mind does not always control our conscious information processing, sometimes we’re forced to rely on our subconscious mind for support. For instance, if we are solving a problem or developing new skills, we may begin by using logic and rational thinking. But as soon as we get caught to our own”logical puzzle” we revert to our emotional memory and behavior patterns. And before we know it we’re back at square one, with another problem and possibly another round of frustrated and angry reaction.

Bruce Lipton believes that the way we consider problem solving goes far beyond our intellectual abilities. Instead, he believes, our subconscious mind provides the critical information that guides and directs our behavior. And although this part of our mind is much more difficult to influence than reflection and logic, it’s also more immune to negative manipulation. This means that we can change undesirable behavior patterns much more easily and efficiently than we could with logic and rational thinking alone.

Bruce Lipton recommends using several problem solving techniques along with his classic ones. He says you need to be ready to go outside your comfort zone when solving complex problems, and he recommends using intuition as an extra tool. Intuition comes into play because it helps us connect what we already know to our subconscious mind, which in turn helps us make connections to the unconscious mind. Another tool he proposes is to create an inner filter to get rid of conscious information and focus all attention on the instinctive part of the brain. Because conscious information tends to limit our instinctive skills, consciously processing too much information at once can have a severe inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton offers several practical actions to help people solve their own problems. These measures are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially helpful for those who cannot afford or do not need to spend money on counseling sessions. In fact, if you believe that you want more help with problem solving, Bruce Lipton can often be a terrific source of inspiration and support.

Bruce Lipton’s problem solving techniques go beyond mere tips on the best way to solve problems. Furthermore, he teaches that there are two parts to a problem; the physical problem and the emotional problem or concern. And he believes both of these parts can be separated because the physical problem is only a symptom of deeper psychological issues. . .so if you ignore the emotional problem, you won’t be dismissing the physical one either.
