HOW OUR EMOTIONS PLAY A ROLE IN CHRONIC DISEASES

What's a chronic disease in your body? If it could have a voice, what would it say? Could there be a complementary therapeutic method often missed when treating these conditions?



A chronic condition is an inflammation in the body. In certain periods the condition gets worse and such a condition is called “a flare-up”.


The flare-up in your body is anger that is not expressed. The person that holds on to the anger is the person that someone has hurt a long time ago. When that happened, that person has not been able to properly self-regulate due to any family circumstances, in other words, the hurt was never eliminated and accumulated anger happens. Later on in life, when something happens, that person doesn’t respond to what happened. Instead, he/she responds to the perception, their interpretation of what happened, which is determined by past events. Every time they react the same way, they live the hurt again and accumulate more anger in their body.


Suppressed emotions cause inflammation in the body. What you need to ask yourself is :


“WHAT IS YOUR BODY SAYING NO TO THAT YOU ARE NOT SAYING NO TO?”

It mostly affects 2 major areas in our life:


  • Relationships

  • Work


The body sends us signals every day, we can either learn from it or ignore it and continue to put fuel on our inflammation process. We always have a choice.


The way we think about the disease, i.e I have eczema, depression, ADD, early rheumatoid arthritis, MS, etc. there’s an assumption, there’s this thing called ADD, depression, etc and then there’s an I. The I has that thing, and that thing has its own nature. It’s separate from me. What if we saw the diseases not as separate things, but as the processes that manifest the way we live our lives?


And if I live my life differently, then I can have an impact on that process and that process can change. The importance of emotions and eliminating suppressed emotions should be a complementary protocol to the existing medical protocol your doctor has put you on.


In his book, When the Body Says No, Dr. Gabor Mate has elaborated on this process so well.
