Dr. W. made an interesting comment to me today in my last appointment. He mentioned that "illness is a bad state of the mind".
In times past, I would have been insulted by such a comment coming from a doctor as I would have interpreted such a statement to mean "it is all in your head". However, after learning about the Klinghardt Axiom and how past emotional conflicts impact our health, I can now accept that some portion of our illnesses are due to emotional traumas, how we think about ourselves, and how we respond to things that happen to us.
The exploration of how to overcome the emotional factors that contribute to illness is still one that I believe I need to further investigate. We all have issues. We all need better ways to deal with these disease contributing factors.
I remember hearing a prominent LLMD in the US recently state that a very significant number of his patients have had some history of abuse or severe psychological trauma.
Dr. W.'s comment made me stop and think that these emotional co-factors are worth further investigation. Our bodies know how to get well. They know how to let go of our illnesses. We just have to create the right environment to allow this....
