Previously I talked about my personal experience of how a trauma created digestive dis-ease in the form of IBS and food intolerances.
Another common feature with fears around survival are that the body retains water. Its reasoning is that alone it is more difficult to find this life-sustaining resource and so it must hold on to as much as it can until it is reunited with the tribe. When the body again feels it is safe it can release the water. At its peak (6) this is often experienced as a migraine, and this is what happened for me. It can also mean that you pee more than normal as your body pushes out the excess water.
As I mentioned in my last post, I was repeatedly being retriggered as contact with my Dad did not go smoothly and it often pushed me straight back into stress. This is what is known as a ‘hanging healing’, where the body repeatedly cycles through the process, unable to break out of the pattern and complete the journey through regeneration and normalisation to wellbeing.
This pattern continued for many years for me, even after my Dad’s death, because by then other traumas had added their triggers and, as a consequence, my wellbeing suffered considerably. In fact this is one of the factors that lead me to explore complementary therapies and ways that I could address the underlying cause of my dis-ease rather than just taking pills, which might help in the short term but never fully got rid of the problem.
Having studied META-Health I now have a greater understanding of what’s going on in my body and what my symptoms are telling me. If I know which tissue is involved this tells me which brain relay has been triggered and therefore what the deeper issue is that I need to address. For example, in my story above, I needed to let go of my fears for my survival and know that my needs would be met by those around me until I was an adult and able to fully care and provide for myself.
I now also know that any symptoms I experience will indicate where I am in the process so that I can know how best to work towards my recovery.
Through my energy work practice and creating a diet that is more appropriate for my needs, I have now been able to support my body to become healthier than it’s ever been.
In the next blog I will look at how the META-Health process can be used to help identify the root cause of any disease so that it can be addressed directly in order to clear it and allow the body to return to health and wellbeing.
