The Mind-Body Connection: Not Just a Theory Anymore

Updated: May 16

Stress can be caused by bad and good things in life. It's part of life. Only often we don't know how to deal with it.

We do know that we have to eat healthy and that exercise is good for us.

But when it comes to suppressed emotions, that remains difficult. It becomes even more difficult when stress and suppressed emotions can be the cause and have an impact of how the mind can influence the disease processes.


And it's exactly that what it takes for us to connect energetically with our bodies and our health.


When I read that most pain is caused by repressed emotions... I immediately thought, that's it! I felt it, because I'd already tried everything. Instinctively, I have always looked for solutions in the most natural way possible. Nevertheless, I also needed medication and had some operations behind me and if there were no medics, I would be dead by now. But when it comes to a situation that is not directly death threatening, then I would like to solve it naturally. So I have tried all kinds of things, mind-fullness, anxiety management, acupuncture, dry-needling, herbs, anthroposophical medicine, homeopathic treatments, reiki, sports, yoga, healthy nutrition, diets, mediation etc.. It did help me to get rid of some symptoms, but then another thing would pop-up. Why all that didn't help me to the core, I know now, is because I suffered from suppressed emotions. Only, I was not aware of that. I've had already had 3 years of therapy and I was told that I had to move on with my life. It goes on and on. Sometimes it goes well for a while and then it goes wrong again and when everything goes wrong and it feels as if everything and everyone is against you and and on top you start to suffer from chronic pain or other problems (in my case) high blood pressure. Then you should knock on the door of the doctor right? Because high blood pressure is threatening. The high blood pressure made me even more nervous or if I had to measure my blood pressure, my adrenaline shot all the way up. But when my doctor told me to take medication, I felt and thought...I'm not going to do this. They call high blood pressure 'the silent killer' because not everyone notices that they have it. You think you live a "normal life" while your blood pressure is high. But I know my body well. And I felt like I wasn't breathing well, I was restless, suffering from rashes, headaches, and bowel problems. I knew that I didn't always have the happiest thoughts, but I thought that was normal and I was just like everyone else.


I also didn't realized I had blind spots. And I did not know that we have an Amygdala who is involved in experiencing, processing and directing different emotions, our primal brain that is created first during the cell division of the brain, next to our cardiovascular system and our digestive system


So if something happens that stresses us, it's because that memory is there and because it reacts automatically, just like we don't have to do anything for our digestion system

The Amygdala does its job.


Yet, we don't like that reaction. It's annoying and we don't want to have to deal with it!

But then your body reacts even more. Duality arises and that causes stress


Some call it the diverted pain syndrome. Our mind protects us (our survival system) from emotional pain and stores this. Old memories are just lying there.. waiting for you to be seen.


Little did I know, that I still had a few big blind spots. Of course, now I'm glad I made the choice to figure it out for myself. And now that I know all this and I help others, it still surprises me.

That when someone is in severe pain for a long time and or suffers from

stress related complaints and symptoms.

Sometimes still is not ready to make a choice.

But everybody needs their own process. I respect that.


Physical and mental pain sure has a real impact on your social life.


You can't exercise or enjoy sport. Some people can't work anymore because of the pain or because of a burn-out. Maybe you are ashamed of your Psoriasis or suffer from your intestines or migraines. I know it can be a challenge and it takes courage to work with where all these problems come from. But I also notice that more and more people understand that something has to be done. Especially now because of the Corona situation. People feel that something needs to change to build our immune system.


That consciousness is important, I can only work with people who really want to and are ready for it. The mind likes to trick us and take over and choose for what it knows and is used to do, that is surviving and holding on to the old system that saved it before from a situation. But the body knows better and can do so much more..if you just learn how to use the Mind/Body connection a whole different world starts to shift for you. You can

even connect now if you like. Put your hand on your heart Breath in deep and out

for 3 times. Ask your heart if you are ready to heal yourself. Yes or No? Feel if this resonates with you...
