Can Emotions Affect Joint Pain?

Emotions-affect-joint-pain-wolf-healing-ottawa
Lose the pain and find joy again!

There can of course be many physical reasons for joint pain, including injuries and auto-immune diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis. But have you ever considered that emotions affect joint pain?

As an Energy Healer I work with numerous clients, and many of them complain of pain. This can be joint, back, hips, feet or anywhere else in the body…

How Do Emotions Affect Joint Pain?

The Physical Impact

On physical level if you are stressed, angry or upset your posture will be affected and your muscles become tense. For people who already have an underlying joint injury, or damage from arthritis, these physical changes leave the injured area unsupported causing pain to be increased.

Histamine and Inflammation

In addition, emotions affect joint pain on a chemical level within the body. The emotions increase histamine (inflammation). For anyone whose joints are already compromised this can really aggravate symptoms such as pain, heat and swelling.

Dr Jonega writes about emotions and their impact on histamine.

So, yes, emotions affect joint pain on a physical, chemical level.

Which Emotions Affect Joint Pain on the Energetic Level?

That’s easy, all negative emotions can adversely affect your joints.

For example, anxiety, fear, shock, trauma are associated with the kidney meridian. They are also associated with the root chakra. When we experience these emotions the resulting blockages can cause low back and hip pain. In addition, the need to “protect” can leave you with tight, inflexible hips. 

Here are some other examples:

Arms

So shoulders, elbows, hands. These can be linked to a need to reach out, to either ask for help for yourself, or to offer help to someone else. If you have pain in your arms take a moment to connect and see if you feel this may apply to you.

A few years ago I came across this on a personal level. I developed tennis elbow for no apparent reason.

The next time I visited my healer I complained of this and she pointed out the reason. Someone close to me was seriously ill and I was in no position to do anything to help them. My desire to reach out and help was getting stuck in my elbow.. She recommended that I bring them into every healing session I did and include them in the healing. In addition to take some time to bring them some distance healing.

My elbow completely cleared up after a few days. I still find this spooky despite what I do!

Legs

Hips, knees, ankles, feet. Are you stuck, unable, unwilling or apprehensive about going forward? Afraid to take the next step?

Shoulders

For someone who carries the weight of the world, in a position where everything falls onto them, it can mean sore, tight shoulders. As if you are literally carrying a burden.

Neck

This often relates to finding your voice. Many of us have been brought up unable to really express who we are, our needs and to be heard. Finding your voice will often resolve neck pain and along with it some headaches.

Where Do The Emotions Come From?

It can be ‘now stuff’ in our lives, or from past events, genetic memories (our parents, grandparents etc) or even soul memories. Sometimes it is clear, other times we have no idea..

For sure our upbringing will have an impact. I see so many clients where they have tried to be the “good child”, conform to parent’s expectations. This continues with being a good spouse, employee and then parent… there is never a time to find out who they are and to learn to express their true self and needs.

In addition, events in our lives play a part.  Witnessing or being a part of a traumatic experience at school, university, a bad relationship etc can all impact the emotions we carry.

In the case of genetic memories and soul memories we all carry these and they can be triggered so that our body remembers trauma from a previous generations and lives. 

It is not important to know where the emotion originates, it is enough to identify it and allow it to be released, to be replaced by something more positive.

So How Do We Resolve These Emotions?

For the ‘now stuff’ Meditation and Mindfulness play a part. Allowing the mind to be calmer, for us to become less reactive and better able to deal with day to day stresses and events.

To resolve those deeper emotions, from traumatic events in our lives, the genetic memories, the soul memories we need to utilize other methods.

CBT (Cognitive behavioural Therapy) can help, along with EFT ( Emotional Freedom Technique / Tapping), as can Hypnosis.

You may also wish to seek help from  Shamanic Healer, or a practitioner who uses Energy Healing such as Reiki or Pranic Healing.

In choosing your approach be mindful of the fact that most of us will benefit from a team of healers and techniques.

Allow yourself to be guided by your intuition. Even if it does not make rational sense, go to the person or pursue the technique that really calls to you at that time. You may see one person for a while then go to someone else, and perhaps come back to the first person. 

Healing and resolving the emotions we carry is a process, a very fluid process with no rules, it takes as long as is needed and every one of us is different. We can take a break at any time. Do not compare yourself to others, and above all Enjoy the Journey!

 

 

 

Can-You-Heal-Hypothyroidism-Wolf-Healing-Ottawa

Can You Heal Hypothyroidism?

I have been asked many times whether it is possible to heal hypothyroidism.

As someone who was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, and was able to resolve it, I want to share my story.

The diagnosis

In 1999, during a period of enormous stress at work, I started to have anxiety, panic attacks and was feeling exhausted all the time no matter how long I slept. My resting pulse was around 50 and in addition, I just could not get warm; I was wearing sweaters and sleeping with 2 duvets and a hot water bottle.. in August!

My doctor did a blood test and I came back with elevated TSH, the hormone that stimulates the thyroid. This is the usual test that your family doctor will use to assess thyroid function.

I was prescribed Synthroid, a form of Levothyroxine, was told I would never be able to get off it, and likely the dose would increase over time. When I first started taking it I felt amazing, my energy was back and I was no longer cold.. great improvement!

At that stage in my life I took the doctor’s word when they said I could never get off the Synthroid and simply got on with my life…

The emotional component to heal hypothyroidism

In 2010 I had met my mentor, Roger, a Shamanic Healer and Teacher of the Eastern Tantra. His initial assessment was that my throat chakra was blocked, the reason for this being a need to first connect wth who I was and what my needs were, then express myself and be heard.. Again this made total sense to me in relation to my family history (genetic memories) and my own upbringing and life events.

We worked to release that blockage, to connect with my heart, to open to my own self worth and to learn to find my voice and expect to be heard. I can only describe this as a ‘growing into myself’, it was an amazing journey of self discovery and self acceptance. To let go of the self doubt, the efforts to please everyone all the time and to be continually seeking acceptance and affirmation from others. To learn to accept myself for who I was at that time and to be able to truly say “I love myself and all my imperfections, I am a good person. I deserve to love and be loved”

This process is still underway, I do not think I will ever stop seeking self improvement and growth.

Next steps to heal hypothyroidism

In 2012 it was suggested that my low thyroid may, in part, be caused by inflammation and auto-immune issues triggered by diet. I had done some of my own research and found information on the relationship between a wheat / gluten intolerance and thyroid issues so this made sense to me. I stopped eating gluten (wheat, rye, barley) and corn. Many of my symptoms improved: the goosebumps on the skin on my arms and digestion, I would wake up feeling rested, and I had fewer aches and pains.

In fact, by 2013 I felt so well that I decided to attempt to stop my Synthroid. My doctor was not supportive, however, intuitively I knew I did not need it. I used a nail file and swiped the pill over the file an extra time each day. This reduced the dose extremely gradually.

About 3 months after I had completely stopped I had a blood test that showed my thyroid (TSH) to be within normal range if on the high end. After 3 more months the TSH was a very good normal and it has stayed that way for 5 years now.

So, can you heal hypothyroidism?

I am not saying this will work for everyone, but it certainly worked for me, and it has also worked for a number of my clients.

I recommend a two part approach.

Addressing diet, allergies, intolerances and nutrition by seeking the advice of a Naturopathic Doctor or Functional Medicine Practitioner and to also consult someone who practices Energy Healing, Reiki, Shamanic Healing or other person who can assess the energy blockages in your body. In so doing you address the physiological and the emotional / energetic components.

 

Disclaimer: It is not recommended to stop any prescription medication without consulting the doctor who prescribed it. The above method worked for me, however, we are all different, so it is not guaranteed to work for you.

Stop Drinking Alcohol

So you want to stop drinking alcohol.. Tried already? Maybe several times with no success?

It can be extremely hard to quit this addiction and it is important to realise that we are all unique, and that no one approach works for everyone…

Studies have shown that addiction is due to both genetic factors and also to poor coping strategies and environmental factors. “Genes and Addiction”

First and most important make the intention not to judge yourself, not to feel guilt and shame.. drinking a lot is often a way of coping, it is a need. Once you can discover what drives you to drink it becomes much easier to make the necessary changes to stop drinking alcohol.

Why do you drink alcohol?

When we are unable to reduce the amount we drink, or to stop completely, there is always an underlying need for the alcohol. Unless we address that underlying reason we are unlikely to be successful.

There is of course the chemical addiction to the alcohol. However, having the genetic predisposition for addiction does not mean that you will get that disease..

I have had many clients who confess to an inability to moderate their drinking. There is always a pain in their life. The emotional stressors that I see most often when clients are finding it hard to stop drinking alcohol are loneliness, rejection, physical / emotional / sexual abuse in childhood and / or adulthood, and fear. Some may have very low self esteem, a sense of having no value, no self worth.

Anxiety and depression can also be factors, along with physical pain caused by injuries, and conditions such as arthritis and headaches.

How to stop drinking alcohol

As I said earlier, there is no one size fits all.. you need to look at the options that are available, try different things and accept there is no magic bullet, one time quick fix. Most people need several different approaches to successfully stop.

You may wish to consider one or more of the following. They are in no specific order.

  1. Admit the issue, the fact you drink too much, to yourself and to those close to you. It is not important to label yourself as alcoholic, just accept the need to reduce / stop.
  2. Seek help from professionals. Resources include your family doctor, counselling / talk therapy, other healing modalities, AA meetings and other support groups.
  3. Avoid comparing yourself to others. We are all different, what works for one will not necessarily work for another.
  4. Decide whether you want to stop completely or try to reduce your consumption. Maybe as a start designate just one or two nights a week for alcohol instead of every night.
  5. Avoid temptation – Choose to spend time with friends who don’t drink or who are happy to avoid it when they are with you and go to places where alcohol is not served.
  6. Replace the alcohol with something else. E.g. If you always drink in the evening find something else to snack on, or to drink, or find an activity you can do with others.
  7. Look at the benefits – better sleep, less wasted time, more connected to others, more meaningful conversations, money saved.. etc..

Addressing the underlying pain

Accepting that there may be underlying emotional issues connected with your drinking can be hard. Mental health still has a lot of stigma attached to it. We all have baggage that we carry, from our own lives, our genetic memories passed down from parents, grandparents etc, and, some believe, soul memories too.

When you are ready to “go there”, or to take a look and see if that may be why you cannot stop drinking, it is important to seek help from a health professional. There are many options available including psychological services such as counselling and psychotherapy, as well as energy healing, shamanic healing, church ministers and more.

Remember healing is an ongoing process. Don’t judge yourself if you slip, accept the relapse and move on, get back on track. It is quite normal to slip a number of times before you reach a point where you are satisfied with changes you have made.

Withdrawal Symptoms

Depending on how much you are drinking and how quickly you reduce your intake you may experience withdrawal from the alcohol.

These symptoms can include psychological symptoms such as irritability, poor concentration, feeling shaky, feeling tired, difficulty sleeping or bad dreams.

Physical alcohol withdrawal symptoms including trembling hands, sweating, headache, nausea, vomiting, palpitations and lack of appetite. Severe physical side effects include convulsions, confusion, fever and even hallucinations. If you experience physical withdrawal symptoms of any kind, you should see your doctor as soon as possible.

 

I wish you success in your journey to stop drinking alcohol!

Reiki For Stress

Have you ever had a really stressful week or a period in your life when everything seems overwhelming and you react to the silliest things? This is the perfect time to use Reiki for Stress.

Why are you reacting?

It may be “now stuff”

The reactions may be obvious, and due to current, everyday stresses such as your ignorant boss, the pressure of deadlines at work, relationship issues (work or home) or events in your family life. Try taking the time to sit and to be still, look at what is happening in your life and bring awareness to any issues that are triggering you. Are they worthy of the response they trigger? This can help bring an appreciation of why you are stressed and is often the first step to doing something about it.

Maybe we are simply overloaded with ‘stuff’ in our lives at that time, and the small event that triggered that huge response was the final straw, the one that pushed us over the edge.

Or it may be “old stuff”

We all carry memories and emotions from past events in our own lives, our parents’ lives or maybe soul memories. For some of us these can be quite intense and strong, for others less so. It does not always have any relation to the size / number of the trauma / emotional events. I have met people who have experienced the most terrible traumas who have been able to let it go, and to put it in the past, and others who had apparently less traumatic experiences who cannot move beyond them.

Choosing not to react

Whether its “now stuff” or “old stuff”, or a combination of both, I recommend that you try Reiki for Stress.

I have had quite a number of clients who say, “I have done years of counselling so it can’t be anything to do with that trauma..”

But it can.. the talking works with the mind, and rarely addresses the emotions and memories stored in the body. It is a wonderful modality that helps you to develop coping strategies and to move on, to live your life, to function and often achieve successes. For some people it is all they need, and it resolves the emotions in the body too.

However, for others it is less effective at addressing those emotions held in the body. It can be likened to packaging things up in boxes, and storing those boxes in the closet. They are out of sight, out of mind, but they are still there, festering. At any point another event in your life reminds you of what is in those boxes and out they come..

Reiki for Stress

Reiki is a wonderful tool. It brings deep relaxation and grounding, Helping the body to release the current stresses and events. People report feeling more calm, more ‘Zen” and better able to cope with things that were overwhelming prior to the session.

It also goes much deeper. Reiki is all about facilitating whatever the body needs at the time. It is not about forcing anything to happen. It helps the body to open the closet and to bring out and dispose of the boxes stored there. It is not necessary to open the boxes, to go back and relive the event / trauma in the way many talk therapies work. It is enough to acknowledge the emotions involved and to let them go.

I am honoured to have had the opportunity to work with quite a number of clients with PTSD and serious trauma in their lives, and to be a part of their healing. It is often an amazing journey we take together.

Case study

I have had a client recently who had experienced terrible abuse in childhood. They were suffering from acute anxiety and a lot of physical pain, particularly in their back and legs. A simple journey to run errands was an ordeal of anxiety, and if family were coming to dinner they were exhausted before anyone arrived just from the stress of organising the dinner. We have worked together now for several months, releasing the emotions and shock stored in the body. There have been sessions where there were tears, and some when they shook violently as the body let go of the tensions created by all that fear.

Their friends have noticed a softening in their face, a relaxing, they can now do an errand to a new place with just the normal amount of anxiety, and having family to dinner is a breeze, something to be enjoyed not endured. And the pain? Well, that is so much better. Fear and trauma often relate to back and leg pain.

Using Reiki for Stress For Yourself

We can all benefit from regular Reiki sessions (me included). You may wish to come once a month or so for maintenance to help you remain calm and relaxed. Many of my clients do this, booking every 3-5 weeks.

For deeper traumas it is often more beneficial to come weekly at first, however, this is a process and we both need to respect the time required in between sessions to allow the body to process. There is no set frequency, no expectation of how often you will come, and we will discuss at each visit when would be best to return.

Muscles and Emotions

Have you ever thought about muscles and emotions?

The emotions we experience and hold onto can have a very real physical impact on our bodies.

 

Relating Muscles and Emotions

I have studied Applied Kinesiology as taught by the International College of Applied Kinesiology.

This system relates the neuromuscular function to the structural, chemical and neurological regulatory mechanisms. Which, simply put, relates the function of your muscles to structural balance (the physical functioning of your body, the skeletal and muscular systems), chemical balance (allergies, toxins, nutrition) and the mental / emotional.

Using this wonderful tool it is possible to determine the reason why a particular muscle is not able to function to its best.

 

Old or new?

Current issues: The emotions involved in the reduced function of muscles may be current stress and tensions in our lives. From dis-harmony in the home, workplace issues, a recent injury or traumatic event.

Past events: The body can hold on to the emotions when we have a traumatic event in our lives. I have had many clients with PTSD, with childhood trauma, physical and sexual abuse, previous violent relationships and major accidents / injuries. They may have had counselling and managed to package up the event, learn coping strategies and be functioning well in life. However, their body continues to tell the story of the emotions that are trapped.

Past lives: It is said we also carry the emotional memories of events in past lives.This has been the issue that has come up for quite a number of my clients.

 

Let’s consider back and hip pain.

If the main supporting muscles are not able to function correctly you are prone to injury, pain, stiffness and tension. You could liken your body to a tent.. where the guide ropes are all out of whack, one too tight, another to loose.. the tent will become crooked, and out of shape, and may even collapse.

This is basically what happens to your body; it becomes crooked and out of line, is prone to injury where the spine and joints are not supported, and to muscle tension, spasm and pain.

Here are some examples of particular muscles and emotions that affect them.

 

Fear, anxiety, shock, trauma

These all relate to the kidney meridian / energy line.

They will ultimately affect the psoas muscle, the big core muscle that connects the lower (lumbar) back to the thigh bone (femur), or the tenderloin in a  beef cow. Tension and weakness here will create tightness and possible pain in your low back and leave you prone to injury.

 

Loss, sadness, loneliness, grief

These relate to the large intestine meridian, and as such will affect the following muscles:

Hamstrings, the muscles down the back of your leg, from your pelvis (butt) to your knee

Quadratus lumborum connects your lower (lumbar) back and bottom rib to the top of your pelvis.

All of these support the back, the hips and the knees.

 

Insecurity, betrayal, abandonment, lost, vulnerable

These affect the heart, and the pericardium meridian, along with the small intestine, and are associated with the biggest muscle group in the body, the gluteals, our butt muscles.

And with the Quadriceps, the big muscle group down the front of your thigh.

It is clear that they have a big role to play in supporting us in an upright position.

 

This is just a sample of the emotions and the muscles that can be affected. There are other, powerful emotions which I have not considered here, including guilt, shame, anger etc. Come see me today and find out more.

 

How do we deal with these emotions?

We do not need to know where these emotions come from, only to acknowledge them and to work to release them, replacing them with those more positive.

This can be done through Energy healing, Reiki or or a number of other emotional release techniques such as tapping. Hypnotherapy, talk therapy or counselling may also be helpful, however, it is not always as effective in releasing emotions stuck in the body.

 

Book with me and find out how your muscles and emotions are connected. Discover how we can resolve pain, tension, and stiffness, along with the emotions you carry. Live life to the full!

 

Emotions-and-Tight-Hips-Wolf-Healing-Ottawa

Emotions and tight hips.

Have you ever considered that your physical body carries the emotions that we experience? And that those emotions can affect the way we move? In this blog I want to consider our emotions and tight hips.

It is well known by those who teach and practice yoga that performing hip opening postures and movements can cause us to become emotional, even bringing tears. Most of us do not understand why, or readily associate the tightness and tension in our body with trapped emotions. The medical profession may attribute it to inflammation, injuries, repetitive strain, too much sitting or even “just getting older”.. They are only just beginning to look at the association between the physical body and the emotions / energetic.

Of course these reasons are all valid possibilities, and should be considered as part of the picture, however, I often find that releasing trapped emotions brings more relief and more improvement in flexibility, strength and function than any amount of pills, exercise, massage or even physical treatments.

The Root or 1st Chakra

Our root chakra is located at the base of spine. It is the first one to become activated when we are born and is associated with particular aspects of our wellbeing. The new baby requires the first 4 of these things from the time of birth and will go on to develop the fifth:

  • Security, safety, survival
  • Basic needs (food, sleep, shelter, self-preservation, etc.)
  • Grounding
  • Support and foundation for living our lives
  • Physicality, physical identity and aspects of self

The Sacral or 2nd Chakra

This is located in the lower abdomen, about 3 inches below our belly button or navel.

In the Western world this chakra is commonly referred to as being to do with sex and sexuality, however, it is far more than that… It has to do with gratification, sensuality, pleasure of all types and creativity. It has to with the enjoyment of life, freedom from worry, the ability to be spontaneous and have fun.

Emotions and Tight Hips

Any situations or events that cause emotions that counter these qualities will bring a blockage in our energy and affect our physical body. In particular anxiety, fear, trauma, not feeling safe and secure will cause the root to become locked tight as a protection. Many clients I meet are stuck tight in their root chakra and, as a part of this, they have deficient energy in their 2nd chakra. It is hard to be spontaneous, joyful, creative and full of fun when we are full of fear!

The effect is cumulative and repeated events will add up, in addition the more intense the event the more the fear locks the hips tight. Combine this with genetic memories kindly passed to us from parents, grandparents and other ancestors and those experiences from past lives and we often have an excess of stored up emotional baggage.

I have had many clients with PTSD, and who suffered childhood abuse and assaults and a number traumas.

I will often ask them “How do your hips feel, do you find they are tight and restricted?”

The answer is always “Yes”, and usually accompanied by “How did you know that…??”

My answer will be “More often than not, there is a link between your emotions and tight hips!”

Releasing the emotions

The are many ways to do this, and each one of us requires a different combination of approaches, there is never a one size fits all.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

For some, working with the conscious mind through counselling, psychotherapy and talk therapy is enough. However, it is more common that this brings the ability get on with life, to function, and to even be successful but does not release the emotions form the body. I liken it to taking the events and traumas, packaging them up, then sticking the boxes in the closet. They are out of immediate sight so do not impact our everyday life, but they are sitting there festering and will most likely come back to haunt us at some point in our lives..

Hypnotherapy

This works more with the subconscious. It allows us to let go of the rational and access our inner wisdom. Through hypnotherapy we can begin to take out those boxes of emotional garbage and throw them out. There is a “blind” approach where it is not necessary to open those boxes and relive the events, but simply to acknowledge the emotions involved and to throw them out.

Energy Healing and Reiki

A good healer will facilitate the release of emotions from your body. Using either light hands on, or using their hands in the energetic field of the body, they will create a safe space for the body to work through the emotions. They will bring energy in where required, assist with the flow and unblocking of energy end emotions and take and dispose of anything you are ready to release.

CranioSacral Therapy

This is a very subtle, hands on technique that works with both the physical and energetic aspects of our being. A good CranioSacral Therapist will be able to feel those trapped emotions and will work with your body to release them. It is not unusual for people to experience emotions during a treatment as things are released.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or Tapping

The Emotional Freedom Techniques, or EFT, is very easy to learn and can be used at home. It is a form of psychological acupressure, simple tapping is used on certain points while thinking about the traumatic event, pain or negative emotions, along with the voicing of positive affirmations. This works to clear the emotional blockages.

 

Yoga

Another technique you can use on your own at home as well as in a class or with an instructor. Performing specific hip opening exercises can teach the body that it can let go of the tensions along with the emotions that are behind them.

Clinical Somatic Therapy or Education

This gentle approach works to teach the body to go beyond the restrictions imposed by the emotional baggage it carries. Slow, conscious movements are used with the help of a therapist using hands on techniques. Exercises are provided to be done at home to continue the healing journey. In the process of learning to let go of the restrictions it also lets go of the emotions.

 

Conclusion

Emotions and tight hips: the body holds onto the emotions that we experience, causing very real physical symptoms. Most people will choose a number of different techniques and approaches over time to release these emotions, some starting from the physical and some form the emotional / energetic angle. Whatever techniques you choose to release the emotions and to unlock your hips it is a journey that cannot be rushed. Enjoy it and be curious about the process.

Emotions Affect Your baby Wolf Healing Ottawa

Pregnancy: How Emotions Affect Your baby

There is a lot of information available about the physical aspects of pregnancy, but how often do we consider the emotional changes, and, maybe more importantly, the ways that these emotions affect your baby.

It is normal for you to experience a wide range of emotions during pregnancy and post partum.

There may be highs and lows, anxiety, fear, excitement and a lack of confidence that you will be a good mother.

These are triggered in part by hormonal changes in your body. Some women are particularly sensitive to the increase in progesterone which can cause irritability.

In addition, pregnancy can highlight relationship challenges, insecurities and unrealistic expectations. It will also bring up issues from your own childhood and possibly issues that you picked up from your own parents during your gestation and early years.

There can be stresses such as what will the baby mean for life going forward, how will it impact your relationship with your partner and what will the financial implications be.

All of these emotions affect your baby..

So how do your emotions affect your baby?

Children are like emotional sponges. They pick up on the emotions of the adults in their life, especially those closest to them. They will sense these emotions even in the womb, and some children will hold onto these emotions, especially when the emotions are strong.

It is therefore important for the well being of both yourself and your child to resolve these emotions.

That does not mean repress them; in fact it means the opposite!

Find someone you can talk to, work through any issues you may have with other family members or your partner, express yourself. It is also best to try to avoid situations which you will find emotive.

Ideally you should seek to deal with any of your own emotional issues prior to getting pregnant. This can be emotions experienced during your life, or associated with your genes, so your parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so on. Clearing emotions prior to trying to get pregnant will increase the chances of being successful and ensure the best of health for both mom and baby.

Many of us have some sort of emotional trauma in our lives.

Case Study

I want to introduce you to “Josh”

Josh’s parents brought him to me when he was nearly 3 years old. They were seeking to address his ‘allergies’. He had suffered eczema and asthma from the time he was born, in addition to which, he was frequently sick and any small virus would end up in bronchitis.

When talking to his parents I was told that his mom had a very stressful time during pregnancy.

She had suddenly lost her brother, with whom she was very close. She was also told during the pregnancy, incorrectly as it turned out, that Josh was in fact a Down’s syndrome baby. As you can imagine, this caused her to experience intense emotional turmoil.

Every organ in the body is associated with a set of emotions.

In the case of the lungs these emotions are grief, loss, loneliness, sadness, all of which Josh’s mom had experienced very intensely during the pregnancy. This meant that Josh’s ‘allergies’ had an emotional root.

We used a combination of Reiki, Energy Healing and Natural Allergy Therapy to release these emotions from both Josh and his mom.

His asthma and eczema improved dramatically; he no longer needs his asthma medications and can get sick without developing bronchitis.

 

This really highlights how emotions affect your baby, and the importance of addressing the emotional issues of the people around a child, both during pregnancy and following birth.
