Bruce Lipton, a world famous doctor, educator and writer is often quoted by his fans as an icon of self-help and 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’s famous for his research into the human mind and the world of human consciousness.

In his book The Biology of Belief: Research on the Changing Self, Bruce Lipton shows how our thought processes are linked 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 will need to examine how we think and why. According to Bruce Lipton, once 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 mind. Our body, including our mind and subconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker believing can manifest in a variety of 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 are forced to rely on our subconscious mind for help. As an example, if we’re solving a problem or developing new skills, we might start 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 response.

Bruce Lipton believes that the way we think about problem solving goes much beyond our intellectual capacities. Instead, he believesour subconscious mind provides the critical information that guides and directs our behavior. And although this portion of our mind is much more difficult to influence than reflection and logic, it’s also more immune to negative manipulation. It follows 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 willing to go outside your comfort zone when solving complex problems, and he recommends using intuition as an extra tool. Intuition comes into play as it helps us connect what we already know to our subconscious mind, which in turn helps us make connections into the subconscious 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 mindful information tends to restrict our intuitive abilities, consciously processing too much information at once may have a severe inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton presents several practical actions to help people solve their own issues. These steps 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 actuality, 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. In addition, he teaches that there are two parts to a problem; the physical problem and the emotional problem or concern. And he believes these two parts can be separated because the physical problem is simply a symptom of deeper psychological issues. . .so if you ignore the emotional problem, you won’t be ignoring the physical one .
