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

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton shows 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 behaviour patterns. To understand how this works you need to look at how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, when we believe, our brains release chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which flow through pathways in our brains. These neurotransmitters are responsible for coordinating all our thinking, communication and bodily functions.

Our thoughts, emotions, memories, skills, wisdom and creativity are produced with these neurotransmitters. But it’s important to realize that our thinking is not solely a function of our brain. Our entire 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, anxious and angry.

Because our conscious mind doesn’t always control our conscious information processing, sometimes we’re forced to rely on our subconscious mind for help. 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 into our own”logical puzzle” we revert to our emotional memory and behavior patterns. And before we know it we are back at square one, with another problem and potentially 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 logic and reflection, it’s also more resistant to negative manipulation. This means that we can change undesirable behavior patterns far more easily and effectively than we can with logic and rational thinking alone.

Bruce Lipton recommends using several problem solving techniques in addition to his classic ones. He says you must 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 suggests is to create an inner filter to remove conscious information and focus all attention on the intuitive part of the brain. Because mindful information tends to restrict our intuitive abilities, consciously processing too much information at once can have a serious inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton presents several practical steps to help people solve their particular issues. These measures are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially valuable for those who can’t afford or don’t want to spend money on counseling sessions. In fact, if you believe 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 how best to solve problems. Furthermore, he teaches that there are two parts to a problem; the physical problem and the psychological problem or concern. And he believes both of these parts can be separated because the physical problem is only a symptom of deeper emotional problems. . .so if you ignore the psychological problem, you won’t be ignoring the physical one either.
