If you think that lyme disease can be healed by simply addressing emotional issues, let's see the results."
I don't believe that she ever said that. In fact, she said quite the opposite:
"...a homeopath and a Rhuem tell me my illness (dx lupus and lyme) was exacerbated by my emotional state (at the time I had major anxious and depression)."
"My healing journey helped me understand that ALL illness (the body doesn't care what name we give illness) is an illness of mind/body and soul."
"Most people with illness are just looking for the magic pill to cure their symptoms, but rarely look deep into the cause."
"Each and every true illness has a deep emotional component to it. This does not mean illness is all "in our heads" or "does not exist". It means that when the emotional "person" is broken down, the body follows and the only way to truly heal is to fix the emotions along with the physical body."
"Unless you heal your emotional state, you cannot ever heal from any illness."
Maybe my reading comprehension is poor, but here goes: I think that she is saying that the treatment of the body is usually performed to the neglect of the emotions. Both must be treated. I don't see a problem here. If damaging emotions are at the core of what is wrong with a person, then, it would be logical to also address that issue as well, wouldn't it? She certainly did not make an absolute statement that the only cause of illness is emotions, and that the only way to cure the physical illness is to only address the emotions.
Frankly, I tend to think that she is absolutely correct. I will give an example from my own experience. My brother-in-law was literally trained to be fearful from the youngest age. He told me that his parents always overreacted to potential dangers in his life. He became afraid of getting lost, afraid to fly, tunnels, afraid of elevators, etc.
opened up an auto-body shop right out of high school. He specialized in restoring antique cars. He sanded a lot of vintage cars with lead paint for over 30 years, and never wore a respirator. As the years passed, the fears that he already had became even stronger. He was tested about
1 year ago, and he was off-the-scale with lead, mercury, cadmium, and a healthy dose of arsenic. He was heavy metal chelated by an MD for almost a year, but his emotional state only became worse.
He discontinued the chelation, and only agreed to go to the Hansa Center out of desperation. I had to drive him, and the 20 hr. drive was terrible. We had to drive through 3 tunnels on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. We were not sure whether we were on the right road a few times, and I can't even describe how upset he was dozens of times on our journey.
He had 10 days of treatment at the Hansa Center. They found that his heavy metal burden was still high. While the detoxification methods at the Hansa Center are superb, do you really think that an appreciable amount was removed from his body in 10 days? In fact, that wasn't the only treatment that he received while he was there. His doctor did a lot of emotional release on him. Emotional trauma can be physically manifested in the body, and treated with both counseling and physically oriented treatments. While his doctor was releasing bound up emotions in his body with bio-energetic treatments, my brother-in-law wept like a baby- according to my sister. He did this several times during his 10 days of treatments. The funny thing is that my brother-in-law is not a candidate for repeated public displays of weeping, unless the bio-energetic treatments were actually causing him to both emotionally and physically process the old emotional trauma. His emotional state continues to improve 6 weeks after he left the clinic. According to my sister- her husband is now the man she never knew. My brother-in-law himself admits that he now has a new life.
Yes, I'm sure that the heavy metals were a major issue for my brother-in-law. Nonetheless, we can see that the heavy metals were not the only problem. In his case, his emotional trauma was at the core off his illness, and he could not be cured unless his emotions were dealt with.
My daughter was treated at the Hansa Center as well. Her doctor found physical manifestations of emotional trauma in her body as well. While he was physically releasing the emotions, she said that she was doing a lot of thinking about
certain things from the past, and that she felt like she almost was going to cry. In both cases, there was no psychological counseling. The bio-energetic treatments caused them to reflect and to emotionally process past hurts. The doctors removed the physical manifestations.
You can call me crazy, bit that's my story, and I am sticking to it! I have said all of this not to try to win an argument, or to belittle other points of view, but to invite people to
open their minds a little, and to think outside of the box.
P.S. Whatever the insurance companies think is irrelevant to healing. That is a red herring and added nothing of value to the discussion since the Insurance company's excuse for non payment is not the same as peacesoul's belief that there is an emotional component to illness. Were you trying to establish peacesoul's error by association with insurance companies? My insurance company paid very little of our daughter's conventional ABX treatments. They did not pay a cent towards the treatment that made her well at the Hansa Center. We have paid over $55,000 out-of-pocket to make her well. In our case, our insurance company is not our friend. Maybe peacesoul does not have a very high view of insurance companies as well, but I cannot speak for her.
We are older parents and Heather is our only child. She became so sick and debilitated that we thought that she was going to die, and everything looked so hopeless and bleak. However, God answered our prayers, and used the healing hands of Dr. J. at the Hansa Center to more than restore the health of our precious daughter. I have a moral obligation to help others that are likewise suffering!
