A recent post I just read, involved a question about anxiety and Crohn’s disease. The question was, did you have anxiety before you were diagnosed with Crohn’s?!
At last! People are now finally beginning to realize and understand the affects of the mind on the body! This is epigentics. Epi = above, genetics = the way genes behave. In other words, it is the environment that surrounds the cell that creates change within the cell!
Environments include trauma, systemic – what you eat, drink, inhale, inject, as well as bacteria and viruses – and then the biggest one, how you think!
When you think your brain creates a chemical, in order to support the information that it is needing to process.
Negative thought = negative chemical. Invariably – cortisol. Useful in short bursts, but very damaging when high levels of cortisol are running through the body for prolonged periods of time.
Because the chemical affects the cell and causes inflammation. Inflammation causes ulceration.
Mainly in the visceral area of the body, where the largest number of nerve endings are.
The spinal column?
No. It’s the gut.
Please, please get this!
After being a Crohn’s sufferer for 40 years and then longer having it, not only am I Crohn’s free, but because I changed the way I used my mind, no matter how ‘stressful’ life becomes, a sick mother, a uni assignment deadline, a negative person – whatever it is, it no longer causes me to say ‘no’, I no longer continually bombard my body with cortisol and I will NEVER have a flare up again!
Try it for yourself! What harm can it do?
It’s acceptance, breathing and then action 🙂
Don’t agree? Ask yourself why you want to hold on to what you know, if you are STILL suffering. Take your medication, have your surgeries, but at the same time, look for another way to ‘think’, with peace, with acceptance, with love.
Might sound hippy dippy, but sorry, it works!!! 🙂 🙂
Shit is always going to happen, but how you deal with it can change 🙂
Peace out dudes! 🙂
