"Very often, we hold a lot of negativity in our bodies ... we carry it with us, and it makes us ill or unwell. The body is a mirror of this inner world, and sometimes we actually remain unwell because we cannot tolerate really being well.
Have you done any kind of emotional work, or have you pretty much limited your quest for health to physical healing therapies?
Some of the ones that I think are terrific are yoga, prayer and especially breathwork. This last one is truly inspiring ... by doing "circular" breathing for about 15 - 20 mins, you can lead your body into a very different state. The experience is almost impossible to describe to anyone who has not done it ... but it yields a euphoria and release of negative emotion that can free the body's resources up for deeper healing work. And it is completely compatible with whatever your "belief system" or religion may be."
hm thats interesting because i've tried iodine, pure oregano and a dewormer, but to no avail for my ibs. heck i don't even get a detox reaction. however, my emotional state is very bad. i also have an eating disorder, binge eating. i have trouble staying calm. a lot of anxiety and self esteem issues. extremely unhealthy relationship with food and school which kind of drags me in circles. can't handle the emotional issues very well with the stomach screwing everything up. and can't fix stomach without emotions screwing up all the time.
do you have any other suggestions aside from prayers, yoga and breathing? what's your take on boxing? beating the living crap out of a bag seems like it would help me but my concrete bowels make me feel so lethargic and crappy. i'm nauseous a lot as it is.
how do i know it's not the pathogens in me causing all this uncontrollable anger? ever since i was 4-5, i've been self destructive and out of control with my anger. i had salmonella poisoning when i was really young. i always end up pulling my hair or holding onto my head during and after i get really ticked off. feels like a bomb in my head went off. can't explain it and my thoughts are always very very scattered. doctors don't want to do an MRI on me although i told the doctor i fell backwards from a shopping cart and onto the pavement a good 13 years ago. they're pushing for me to go to school again though, which is torture because i feel sick and i can't concentrate. all the happy chattering gets to me too. it makes me sad knowing i had high grades, but have now been reduced to a failing, lagging sap.
