Bruce Lipton, a world famous physician, 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 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 control and shape 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, once we believe, our brains release chemicals called neurotransmitters, which flow through pathways in our brains. These neurotransmitters are responsible for coordinating all our thinking, communication and physiological functions.

Our thoughts, emotions, memories, skills, wisdom and creativity are produced by these neurotransmitters. However, it’s important to understand that our thinking is not solely a function of our brain. Our body, including our thoughts and subconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker believing 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’re forced to rely on our unconscious mind for support. For instance, if we are solving a problem or developing new skills, we might begin by using logic and logical thinking. However, as soon as we get caught into our own”logical puzzle” we revert to our emotional memory and behaviour patterns. And before we know it we are back at square one, with another issue and possibly another round of frustrated and angry reaction.

Bruce Lipton believes that the way we consider problem solving goes far beyond our intellectual capacities. Instead, he believesour unconscious mind provides the critical information that guides and directs our behavior. And although this portion of our mind is far more difficult to influence than reflection and logic, it’s also more resistant to negative manipulation. This means that we can change undesirable behavior patterns far more easily and effectively than we could with logic and rational thinking alone.

Bruce Lipton recommends using several problem solving techniques in addition to his classic ones. He says you need to be willing to go outside your comfort zone when solving complex problems, and he advocates using intuition as an extra tool. Intuition comes into play because 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 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 serious inhibitory effect.

Bruce Lipton offers several practical steps 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 cannot afford or don’t want to spend money on counselling sessions. In actuality, if you believe that you need 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 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 won’t be ignoring the physical one either.
