Deepti G Gujar outlines various ways we can support the body and ourselves to undergo a surgery with minimum trauma and maximum grace

After taking two medical opinions, I found out I had to undergo a medical procedure. The organ had to be operated on. Knowing the science of body consciousness, I knew that the moment metal cuts into the body, the organ that it cuts into, including the skin, undergoes trauma. And so I started the pre-talk with my body. You see, the body listens to every thought in your system.
