Meditation helps us to cope or block out our suffering, but unfortunately does not get to the root of our problem. A lot of our health problems start in the gut which then affects our mind. Pathogens create many harmful metabolites that affects our mind+overall health. Usually, The healthier we are the better we can process trauma. The root of severe pathogenic candida for most is a gut imbalance not a mind imbalance. A imbalance that was created mostly by antibacterials. Chemicals, bad diet, Heavy Metals, toxins, and stress add to the imbalance. Trauma does not help our healing process/health issues. I wish I could meditate a balance of trillions of friendly bacteria back into my gut..that would be nice. Our gut ecosystem is very complicated. It takes years upon years for our body to create the right balance. Restoring that balance after its been wiped out/altered takes much more than just mental will power.
