Hi Avik, I can totally understand your concern. But it doesn't always matter what modalities you follow, but it's more about what's ingrained in your belief system. That's why some may heal from medicine, some by juicing, others by meditation, yoga, some by a combination etc. It all boils down to placebo. But to activate this, one must change his or her outlook and relationship with fear, worry etc. The mind can heal real injuries and psychosomatic pain, it all boils down to your belief. Regardless, of whether you go the mind body route or conventional medicine, or a combination of both. Meditation and / or negative writing will have significant impact on your physiology, particularly your immune system and healing. If you take certain medicine it will only weaken your immune system and make you prone to more illnesses, whereas your goal is to restore it to fight bacteria. If I was facing a condition as such, I wouldn't approach it from one angle, I'd try numerous modalities simultaneously to find a means of healing. Personally, I'd take the medicine they prescribe, change my diet, meditate and journal. If you are not already meditating, I'd recommend you look into it.
