Our emotional states can promote all kinds of diseases: hypertension, cardiac dysfunction or nervous disorders of different kinds. Different conditions can help not only transform our physical health, but also facilitate healing on a deeper level. The secret is in the discovery and understanding of the messages that contain physical disorders to know better and live better.
To understand this connection, we must first recognize that the mind and body are one; Normally, we think of the body as a “vessel” that accompanies us, that we must take care of and that, if it is damaged, we must take it to the doctor for repair. “Unfortunately, this vision is very limited. It denies the complexity of the energies that shape our entire being, energies that flow and communicate with each other. (…) There is no separation between what happens in the mind (thoughts and feelings) and what happens in the body. ”
One thing to keep in mind about fibromyalgia, because its symptoms are misunderstood, those who suffer from this disease believe that others do not believe them because the pain is not seen. Fibromyalgia is considered a controversial diagnosis and some authors argue that it should not be considered a disease, especially due to the absence of abnormalities in the physical examination, objective laboratory tests or medical imaging studies that confirm the diagnosis.
Officially, fibromyalgia is a poorly understood group of musculoskeletal symptoms and disorders, characterized primarily by extreme fatigue, persistent pain, stiffness of varying intensity in muscles, tendons, and a wide range of other psychological symptoms, such as difficulty sleeping, morning stiffness, headaches and problems with thinking and memory, sometimes called “brain deficits,” which often prevent people from functioning in a routine way. It is a “non-contagious” disorder present in about 3-6% of young women, usually between the ages of 20 and 50 years.
Today we are going to share an interview with Mª Àngels Mestre, a woman who suffered from fibromyalgia and who, without an official response from her doctors, was able to leave her alone. She has been writing about it ever since and educating patients about this and other chronic diseases. We hope this helps a lot.
What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is the disease of unexpressed emotions. It is the result of an internal conflict, we generated it. The most affected organ is the liver, a repository of contained emotions according to traditional Chinese medicine. It regulates fasciae, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joint ducts, veins and arteries, as well as sight. This organ is also responsible for detoxifying all the toxins that make us sick, both externally and internally.
What are the most common symptoms?
Fibromyalgia presents with a wide range of symptoms, the main one being generalized musculoskeletal pain, accompanied by stiffness and fatigue, accompanied by decreased concentration and memory, insomnia, irritable bowel, irritable bladder, headaches, anxiety, syndrome of restless legs and chest pain, strong and painful periods, decreased vision, cramps, etc.
What kind of people suffer from it?
To have health and harmony, we must align thoughts, feelings (emotions) and actions (actions/words). In fibromyalgia, there is poor management of thoughts and emotions, since their energy is not released in action or words. Action is repressed and the energy of thought and emotion is blocked in the form of tension that manifests in pain and a wide variety of symptoms.
Why are there more cases in women than in men?
The woman is more emotional and more practical. Her blocks are more emotional, while the man is more mental and theoretical. On the other hand, the factor that makes this disease possible is repression. There is no doubt that in our society, from childhood, women are more subject to repression than men.
Where does this disease come from?
Like all diseases, fibromyalgia is multifactorial, but its origin lies in rigid cultural, family and social patterns that produce repression in childhood. The child copies these models to feel loved and becomes obedient and submissive without being so, and begins to develop a false personality, deviating from its essence. The psychoemotional defects that accompany the patient are: perfectionist pride in feeling valued
