Bruce Lipton, a world famous physician, educator and writer 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 world of human consciousness.

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton reveals how our thought processes are linked to the physical body. In this book he explores how belief can shape and control our conscious information processing and our behavior patterns. To understand how this works you will need to examine how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, when we think, our brains release chemicals known as 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 with these neurotransmitters. But it’s important to understand 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 thinking can manifest in a variety of 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 are forced to rely on our subconscious mind for help. For instance, if we are solving a problem or developing new skills, we might begin by using logic and rational thinking. However, 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 are back at square one, with another issue and possibly another round of frustrated and angry response.

Bruce Lipton believes that the way we consider problem solving goes far beyond our intellectual capacities. Instead, he believes, our unconscious mind provides the important information that guides and directs our behavior. And although this portion of our mind is far more difficult to influence than logic and reflection, it is also more resistant to negative manipulation. This means that we can change undesirable behavior patterns far more easily and efficiently than we can 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 willing to go outside your comfort zone when solving complex problems, and he recommends using intuition as an additional tool. Intuition comes into play as it helps us connect what we know to our subconscious mind, which in turn helps us make connections into the subconscious mind. Another tool he suggests is to develop an inner filter to remove conscious information and focus all attention on the instinctive part of the brain. Because conscious information tends to limit our intuitive abilities, consciously processing too much information at once can have a serious inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton presents several practical actions to help people solve their particular issues. These steps are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially helpful for people who can’t afford or do not need 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 advice on how 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 emotional problems. . .so if you ignore the emotional problem, you will not be ignoring the physical one either.
