Did You Know ---
Dear friends, did you know that By changing the mind you change the body! People with a split personality provide a good example of the impressive truth to that statement. (Split personality is now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder). D.I.D. is a condition in which a person appears to possess distinct, personalities; a basic host personality and an alter, i.e. another personality. These distinct personalities alternate in control over the person’s thoughts, memories, feelings, actions, and sense of identity.
For example one personality can be deaf while the other personality hears normally.
Even recurrent traumatic wounds are seen in certain individuals with D.I.D. In one case, a woman whose mother had burned her with cigarettes over and over again displayed red marks on her skin when that specific personality surfaced. In another case, a man addicted to heroin in one personality, but not in the other, exhibited needle track marks when he switched to that personality.
Clearly, switches between different personalities can be accompanied by distinct physiological changes. Researchers are still puzzled by this enigma. The bodily alterations associated with switches support the view that changes in mental states are accompanied by changes in human physiology. In other words, by changing the mind you change the body!
