Bruce Lipton, a world famous doctor, educator and author is often quoted by his supporters 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’s famous 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 shows how our thought processes are connected 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 organizing all our thinking, communication and physiological 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 body, including our mind and unconscious mind also affects our thinking. Weaker thinking can manifest in many different 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 support. As an example, if we are solving a problem or developing new skills, we may start by using logic and rational thinking. However, as soon as we get caught into 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 potentially 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 important 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 much more easily and effectively than we could with logic and rational thinking alone.

Bruce Lipton recommends using several problem solving techniques along with 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 additional 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 limit 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 problems. These steps are based on his years of clinical practice and research. These steps are especially helpful for those who cannot afford or don’t want to spend money on counselling sessions. In fact, if you feel that 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 the best way 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 issues. . .so if you ignore the psychological problem, you won’t be dismissing the physical one .
