PSYCHOLOGICAL BLOCKAGES IN PSYCHOSOMATIC DISEASE:
When psychological blockages occur, for whatever reasons, emotional energy is not only repressed and pushed under, but it also attacks itself to certain key organs, for example colon, heart, and these are used as new pathways for the expression of feelings. When under emotional pressure, certain patients react with an attack of asthma, colitis, angina, depending upon which particular organ is sensitized and used as an outlet. Such psychosomatic alternatives are not without their danger, however, and it is always more healthy for an individual to express feeling directly, however strong, frightening and threatening they may be, rather than vicariously through an organ that is not basically designed to convey such intense feelings.
PHYSICAL SIGNS YOUR PSYCHOSOMATIC ILLNESS MAY NEED ATTENTION:
1. TIGHT, TIRED AND PAINFUL SHOULDERS:
When I meet people with this problem, they often have a similar story. They believe that they need to be, and do, everything for everyone. They are literally “carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders.”
2. A STIFF NECK, PEOPLE WITH STIFF NECKS HAVE TROUBLE TURNING THEIR HEAD TO ONE SIDE:
They’re often dealing with someone close to them making a choice that they don’t agree with. This decision has hurt them and they are finding it hard to “turn the other cheek.”
3. BACK PAIN:
While disc ruptures are not uncommon, most people present with muscle spasms. Again, there is often a deep-rooted emotion playing out behind the scenes. In this scenario, it often pertains to money and finances. Their finances are restricting them from doing the things they want to do (as is their back spasm!)
IF YOU ARE NOT SURE. HERE ARE A FEW QUESTIONS YOU CAN ASK YOURSELF TO GATHER MORE INFORMATION:
- Does your life feel stressful at the moment, and what is causing you to feel this way?
- What is one thing you can let go of, even just for now?
- Do you feel overwhelmed, and what do you keep saying yes to that you could begin saying no to?
- Are you taking on the emotional loads of others in your life? So often we want to help or fix those close to us, but it’s important to remember that they are on their own journey.
- Are there any stories from your past that you are holding on to that need releasing?
- Are “you” last on your list of priorities? If so, how can you make a little more time for yourself
Chronic physical illness may be rooted in deep emotional pain and in order to feel better it is important to address the underlying cause. Our bodies are fine-tuned machines, so physical symptoms such as high blood pressure and irritable bowel syndrome may be our bodies way of signaling us to slow down or learn to deal with stress in a healthier way.
Homeopathy aims at a reintegration of the total self, with a reduction of unhealthy psychological regression, blockages and isolation. The homeopathic prescription and general approach towards the person helps to lessen the denial of painful hurts and memories, which can then be easily brought to the surface, recalled, understood and discussed. This quite naturally leads to a strong personality, confidence and to greater insights. Being able to tolerate mixed feelings and painful memories, previously thought impossible, leads to lessening of the related physical or psychosomatic symptoms, with a considerable release of energy, well being and drive. In the correct remedy there is a slow emergence of the bruised aspect of the personality into the light of more adult maturity and understanding so that a softening of earlier resentments and scar can occur.
It sometimes happens that after an initial improvement through homeopathic treatment, an apparent set-back occurs when nothing seems to be happening. This is quite a usual reflex of period of consolidation of response, while the body defence healing energy are being mobilized. Such a delay requires a degree of patience from the patient and the family, and it may cause a problem when tension and impatience are marked or when there is a long standing problem, with all the inevitable uncertainties and fears, as to diagnosis, response to treatment and outcome. When there is a chronic problem, responses are inevitably slower, since the body takes time to recover from the underlined condition, depleted energy reserves and offence from the effects of conventional treatment or homeopathic drugs prescribed indiscriminable.
HOMEOPATHIC APPROACH TO PSYCHOSOMATIC DISEASE:
Homeopathy treats the person as a whole. It means that homeopathic treatment focuses on the patient as a person, as well as his pathological condition. The homeopathic medicines are selected after a full individualizing examination and case-analysis, which includes the medical history of the patient, physical and mental constitution etc.
A miasmatic tendency (predisposition/susceptibility) is also often taken into account for the treatment of chronic conditions. The medicines given below indicate the therapeutic affinity but this is not a complete and definite guide to the treatment of this condition. The symptoms listed against each medicine may not be directly related to this disease because in homeopathy general symptoms and constitutional indications are also taken into account for selecting a remedy. To study any of the following remedies in more detail, please visit our Materia Medica section. None of these medicines should be taken without professional advice.
When other systems of medicine fail to work effectively, and if you want to live with natural, safe, gentle, non-toxic, effective and rapid acting medicines, to relieve the symptoms of sexual dysfunction, to experience substantial improvement in your outlook and quality of life consider Homeopathy.
