STRESS! As indeed stress does not cause
CD it can aggravate
it! Need to learn to calm down. Now, I realise that a passing of a loved one is indeed very stressful. But try EFT, Yoga, or listening to Hearts of Space (HOS is a contemplative music programme as hosted by Stephen Hill out of San Francisco. Each week there is a new programme www.hos.com). Learning how to relax is no easy chore, but once mastered, you will be amazed at the results!
I have only a mild form of Crohn's Ileitis and as I listen "religiously" as I have since the mid 1980's, the music is soothing and helps to relax and just let the stress "melt" away. So whatever technique suits you best, please do it!
