Doctor Oz had Deepak Chopra, author of Reinventing the Body, Resurrecting the Soul: How to Create a New You, on his show to teach us about the power of the mind. Deepak Chopra was called by Time Magazine, the Poet-Prophet of Alternative Medicine. Deepak was born in India in 1942 and got a medical degree in India. He then came to America to further his medical studies, and in the 1980’s he discovered that his true passion was alternative medicine. Chopra has sat on panels at the National Institute of Health and has been empowering humans all over the world.
Deepak Chopra said that when you feel happy, it is not just an internal state of euphoria- serotonin, oxytocin, opiates and other chemicals are released inside of your body which increase your self esteem and confidence. One of the biggest misunderstandings is that if you think happy thoughts, you will be better. If you give that advice to someone with “karmic baggage” (as Chopra put it), then they will just get stressed out. First, a person has to get rid of emotional toxins and then you should introduce positivity.
