Auto-immune disease is the body knowing the difference between a friend or foe. There is a large emotional component that underlays the creation of an autoimmune disease. Trauma and long-term stress are key factors. In a healthy human being, our immunity system is robust, being able to know what is good for us and what is bad, whether that be a toxic environment or a negative thought. With a strong sense of purpose, self-confidence, and feeling emotionally balanced the immunity system has a clear direction and will instantly know what to do when under attack. Whether that be physical, emotional, or verbal.
Our thoughts and emotions affect the systems and chemistry of our bodies. So it stands to reason that when we are unable to express how we think and feel for example, or are thinking one thing and feeling another we are giving conflicting signals to the way our body responds. Over time, our immunity system which is designed to fend off negativity gets confused and ends up attacking the cells of our body.
Feelings and Emotions
Our emotional state plays a big part in how well our immune system functions:
- Feeling challenged to communicate your truth.
- Thinking one thing and feeling another.
- Being verbally attacked or silenced leads to a fear of stepping out of the box.
- A fear of unintentionally provoking confrontation and feeling powerless.
- Trust issues.
- Unexpressed anger and rage.
- Sabotaging your life and progress as you feel unworthy.
- Suppressing your creativity, in case you might shine too brightly and attract negative responses from others.
- Low self-esteem and feeling unimportant.
- Feeling powerless.
- Fear of not being enough.
- Difficulty receiving nurturing.
- Fear of failure and indeed success
- The need to rescue others is overwhelming, so you can hide behind your own discomfort.
What Is the Cause of Auto-Immune Disease
Long-term stress, trauma, and lifestyle choices are key causes of creating a compromised immune system but also ancestral patterning.
Trauma for example means a person is stuck in an unconscious fight-or-flight state, which means that they feel on constant alert. The immunity system is also on high alert, ready to fight whatever comes its way. Over time the stress hormones created by this stuck state become toxic to the body and the immune system starts to fight itself unable to distinguish between good and bad.
Normally there is a combination of factors that seriously compromise our immune systems. In any case, inflammation builds up in the system when a person is not able to rebalance and release toxic build-up, whether that be emotional and psychological or chemical (food).
Birth and Ancestral Trauma
The underlying energetic pattern that forms the immunity system is created in the womb. It is highly likely that we carry through the patterns of energy of trauma from our ancestors. So, without our knowing it for some people we can be compromised from the start.
During pregnancy, the mother may have been highly stressed, so the fetus would have experienced a high level of stress hormone. Any kind of birth trauma will lead to high levels of survival anxiety at an early age, which will lead to an overload of stress hormones that will create inflammation in the body. A newborn baby may not have received the vital colostrum that is required from the offset to build a healthy immune system for example.
So, as you can see there are many factors that lead to a problem with the immune system from an early age. The problem arises when the immune system stops recognising who you are.
Friend or Foe
An auto-immune response literally means that you (meaning your body intelligence) does not know what is a friend or what is a foe. The system has lost its clear direction and inner knowing as to what to attack or not.
“Wikipedia says: An autoimmune disease is a condition arising from an abnormal immune response to a functioning body part. There are at least 80 types of autoimmune diseases, with some evidence suggesting that there may be more than 100 types. Nearly any body part can be involved. Common symptoms include low-grade fever and feeling tired. Often symptoms come and go. According to emotional stresses in life.
Some common autoimmune conditions include:
- Diabetes type 1
- Thyroid conditions such as Graves and Hashimotos
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
- Fibroids to name but a few.
Get Back on Track
It is possible to help your body recognise healthy cells. A careful diet gives your body the right chemistry to build healthy cells. Clear the patterns of emotions that were the cause of the problem. Become aware of those unhelpful beliefs, attitudes, and behaviours. All of these will help your body become stronger and more resilient.
For more serious conditions requiring medical intervention combined with natural healing techniques can give you an excellent chance to live a full happy, healthy life.
