I'm an alternative practitioner, and I wish to address an issue that for some years had been vexing me. Through experience I have learned that the emotions come first and the illness follows. The emotions affect the chemicals in the brain, the flow of chi in the meridians and collateral channels. The root of all illness lies in the emotions and unresolved conflicts many of which are on the subconscious level. Some conflicts are even inherited from our ancestors. Resolve the conflict and the body heals.
With the above I'm curing cancer, chronic pain, arthritis, allergies, and even personality disorders. No herbs, drugs, needles, special diets or tree hugging.
