Want to Feel Better? Get Your Human Software Programmed Right!

by Dr. Kenneth Hansraj

Did you know that nearly all ailments and illnesses you’ve ever had are a direct result of your programming? You see, the human body and mind is not too different than a computer; your human software and hardware directs your life.

Whether your life is great or not-so-great is really dependent on how you treat your “computer” through both the software and hardware.

Now you’re probably asking yourself, what the heck does that mean? Let me explain…

Your “human software,” is everything that you were taught as a child and your cumulative experiences that lays the groundwork for who you will be, what you’ll achieve, and who you think you are. It can in fact be re-wired.

In other words, the tracks that were laid initially can be re-routed in order to achieve optimal physical and mental health and well-being.

How To Program Your Human Software

Things that affect your human software and limit or enhance your capabilities include:

  • Negative influences: physical factors such as inactivity, not sleeping well, not breathing well, unhappiness, no awareness of parts of the body, (particularly the nerves and the facet joints), smoking and obesity may lead to pain, suffering, and a shorter lifespan.
  • Healthy influences:  including planned activities, proper sleeping, deep breathing, achieving happiness, full awareness of the parts of the body, cessation of smoking, and a fit lifestyle with optimal weight may lead to a more productive and longer lifespan.
  • Mental factors such as our affirmations (I am awesome vs. I’m a loser), negative vs. positive thinking, negative vs. positive psychology, constructive vs. destructive neuroplasticity will play a large role in terms of the human being that we manifest similarly leading to a life of pain, suffering and shortened lifespan versus a more productive, less painful life with a longer lifespan.
  • Activities including meditation, journaling, deep thinking, and thoughtfulness can enable us to reset our human software and allow us to revise our life plans, goals, and achievements, and play a significant role in bettering our overall mental and physical health.

How to Program Your Human Hardware

By optimizing your “human hardware,” (your physical body including your bones, muscles, joints, and organs), you can prepare your mind to adjust its human software and re-route tracks to lead to better mental health and wellbeing. Focusing on the spine, the core of your human hardware will help to sufficiently improve your overall physical state, thus enabling you to embrace significant mental changes on the road to optimal overall wellbeing.

    • Nerve Mobility Strategies. Deep belly breathing increases nerve mobility and diminishes spinal symptoms. Physical therapy employs various nerve mobilization techniques “nerve flossing” which increases nerve mobility. Stretching, yoga, and pilates are other simple and free options for physically moving the nerves.
    • Facet mobilization techniques may also help relax the spine and allow for greater flexibility and range of motion. Lots of times people are in horrible pain with stuck facets. An osteopath or a chiropractor may be able to help them, just by moving these keystone joints of the spine. Stretching, yoga, and pilates are other simple and free options for moving the facet joints.
    • Yoga is classically helpful in the mobilization of both the spinal nerves and spinal facets.
  • Meditation may be useful in calming the brain and the body. The associated deep belly breathing mobilizes nerve and facet joints of the spine, and practicing humans have been shown to have less cortisol, a stress-reducing profile, along heart protection.
  • Cranial osteopathy is a phenomenal deep relaxation enhancing treatment that may help to heal due to its ability to break the pain cycle by inducing a profound deep calm.

By mastering these techniques, you can achieve a state of being where you are operating at your optimal level on every front, physically and mentally. You are clear, capable, and have specific intentions and goals, with the ability to achieve virtually anything you set your mind to.

I never really imagined our bodies as having “software” and “hardware”. I guess just like a computer we can always upgrade and change our software but we only get 1 set of “hardware”.

The more advanced medicine gets today the more I feel that the old at home remedies Grandma used to use are the best methods. After reading this a holistic approach is the way to go

Recently I moved into a new apartment and it’s such a nicer place than the old dump I lived in. Since moving out I’ve been happier and I’ve notice such great positive changes in my life.

It’s so refreshing to hear a Doctor talk about conservative treatments that anyone can do without taking “Big Pharma” Drugs and harmful medications. I feel like “Big Pharma” has most doctors in their back pocket and it’s nice to see a doctor breaking away from the mold.

I’ve been actively trying to sleep better and since then I have felt so much better with a good night’s rest. I can’t wait to start implementing the rest of your techniques into my life.

So If i pretend to be happy and think positive eventually I will be happy and live a more positive life? So are you saying that you can fake it till you make it in a way?

Learning about this is like entering the matrix. Now that I know you can rewire your brain I want to know more and more how deep does the rabbit hole go?
