For centuries, many holistic and natural healers have identified connections between emotional and spiritual issues and physical disease. Specific emotional issues have even been connected to affecting specific parts of the body, manifesting as pain and disease in those areas.
I’d like to quickly overview three theories, including my own, that support this idea that pain and unhealed memories, manifest themselves as physical ailments and disease.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine is part of the Eastern Medicine philosophy which takes a holistic approach to medicine. Most of us in the United States grew up going to family and general practitioners who practice Western Medicine, in which ailments and disease are diagnosed and then treated using prescription drugs. You could say that Western Medicine looks at the human body like it’s a machine. When you’re sick, it's because one of the body's gears or mechanisms is out of whack. You go to the doctor, get a diagnosis and walk out with a prescription. It’s more about treating the symptoms than preventive care, which pinpoints what caused them in the first place.
Traditional Chinese Medicine, however, evaluates the entire person, physical and non-physical, and seeks to heal imbalances between the two. Its basic concept is that a vital force of life, called Qi, surges through the body. If your Qi becomes imbalanced, it can cause disease and illness.
Holistic medicine views the body as a complex system that is affected by both internal and external factors. It emphasizes the body's ability to heal itself and advocates for healthy lifestyle changes and natural remedies like meditation and herbal medicines, rather than prescription drugs.
Germanic New Medicine
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer is the originator of Germanic New Medicine. Throughout his career, he worked with 6,500 last stage cancer patients who had been sent home to die by their physicians. More than 6,000 of those 6,500 that he treated did not die! He did thousands of CT scans to diagnose and track their progress.
Dr. Hamer believed that every health issue is rooted in a non-health issue. He would find the non-health issue and resolve it first, rather than treat the symptoms with medicine like his traditional colleagues, and the cancer would either get better or go away.
Dr. Hamer’s theory was born out of personal tragedy. In 1978 while head internist in the oncology clinic at the University of Munich, he received the shocking news that his son Dirk had been shot. Dirk died in December 1978. A few months later, Dr. Hamer was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Since he had never been seriously ill, he immediately surmised that his cancer diagnosis might be related to the tragic loss of his son.
This experience inspired him to start looking into the personal history of his cancer patients. He discovered they all had something in common -- they had all experienced an extremely stressful life event just before developing cancer. This mind-body connection was not really surprising. Numerous studies had already shown the correlation between a diagnosis of cancer or other diseases often being preceded by a traumatic event.
Dr. Hamer took his research a momentous step further. Pursuing the hypothesis that all bodily events are controlled from the brain, he analyzed his patients’ brain scans and compared them with their medical records. Dr. Hamer discovered that EVERY disease—not just cancer—is controlled from its own specific area in the brain and linked to a very particular, identifiable, “conflict shock.” He called his findings “The Five Biological Laws of the New Medicine” because these biological laws, which are applicable to any patient’s case, offer an entirely new understanding of the cause, development and the natural healing process of diseases.
This lengthy and enlightening list of Dr. Hamer’s emotions chart shows the link between various conflict emotions and certain areas of the body:
Adrenal cortex: Wrong direction, gone astray.
Bladder: Ugly conflict, dirty tricks
Bone: Lack of self-worth, inferiority feeling
Breast milk gland: Involving care or disharmony
Breast milk duct: Separation conflict
Breast, left (right-handed): Conflict concerning child, home, mother
Breast, right (right-handed): Conflict with partner or others
Bronchials: Territorial conflict
Cervix: Severe frustration
Colon: Ugly indigestible conflict
Esophagus: Cannot have it or swallow it
Gallbladder: Rivalry conflict
Heart: Perpetual conflict
Intestines: Indigestible chunk of anger
Kidneys: Not wanting to live, water or fluid conflict
Larynx: Conflict of fear and fright
Liver: Fear of starvation
Lung: Fear of dying or suffocation, including fear for someone else
Lymph glands: Loss of self-worth associated with the location
Melanoma: Feeling dirty, soiled, defiled
Middle ear: Not being able to get some vital information
Mouth: Cannot chew or hold it
Pancreas: Anxiety/anger conflict with family members, inheritance
Prostate: Ugly conflict with sexual connections or connotations
Rectum: Fear of being useless
Skin: Loss of integrity
Spleen: Shock of being physically or emotionally wounded
Stomach: Indigestible anger, swallowed too much
Testes and Ovaries: Loss conflict
Thyroid: Feeling powerless
Uterus: Sexual conflict
I think you’ll agree that this is a fascinating list!
After working with thousands of clients over the years I have developed my own list of internal emotional struggles and the physical ailments they cause. These conflicts are things people deal with daily, but if they are swept under the rug, they can manifest themselves into physical ailments and disease.
Every health problem originates from a destructive energy frequency. These “issues of the heart,” or the negative spiritual and emotional beliefs caused by hurt and trauma, can control health, resonate destructive energy and create stress.
Take a look at my list of common internal emotional struggles and where they impact our physical bodies:
- Love vs. Fear - Glandular/Hormonal
- Joy vs. Sadness/Depression - Skin
- Peace vs. Anxiety - Gastrointestinal
- Patience vs. Anger – Immune System
- Kindness vs. Rejection - Central Nervous System
- Good vs. Bad – Respiratory System
- Trust vs. Unhealthy Control – Reproductive System
- Humility vs Image Control – Cardiovascular System
- Self-Control vs. Entitlement or Helplessness - Muscular/Skeletal System
My friend Professor William Tiller PhD, former head of physics dept. at Stanford) says that the unseen, (non-physical) is always the parent of the seen (physical). It never works the other way. So heal your "issues,” and you are also healing your physical health.
I don’t think anyone could disagree after looking at these lists with the fact that there is a direct correlation between trapped emotions and physical health. I’ve discussed many times the importance of releasing painful, unhealed memories. My Memory Engineering and Trilogy methods can help you work toward healing. I have spent six years testing and developing Trilogy alone, and the results have been more profound than anything I have seen in 17 years!
Look to alternative methods of healing to either replace or complement traditional medicine and you may find the solutions you are seeking.
Have a blessed, wonderful day!
