Once you address the emotional impact of chronic pain, your journey to greater joy and health begins

Read this article by Anja Hertkorn (Energy Therapist, EFT Expert, Psychotherapist, Emotion Code Practitioner) about the emotional impact of chronic pain and learn what you should be aware of if you suffer from chronic pain and conventional medicine is running out of options.

She came up the stairs, sat on my sofa and said, "It just doesn't get any better!" 

She was in pain and at her wit's end. The surgery had taken place years ago and despite all the doctors' efforts she was still in pain, could not walk properly and could not bend her leg as she used to do. She was desperate, hopeless and didn't know what else to do to walk properly again.

My patient's surgery had not gone well. She understandably wanted to forget the failed surgery and had suppressed her negative emotions related to it, but her body and her energy system didn't forget it. 

Suppressing emotions causes even more stress for the body and weakens the immune system and the muscles. 

The emotional impact of chronic pain is enormous and influences your body's healing ability.

A person without hope has less chances of getting well than a person who looks to the future with joy and perspective. Moreover, it is impossible to find a solution to the problem when the body and mind are busy coping with stress.

The despair over the failed surgery, the hopelessness, the anxiety, the powerlessness and the lack of certainty whether she would ever be able to walk again was stored in her energy system and needed to be addressed. 

From my many years of experience with pain patients, I know that even chronic pain can be reduced or completely resolved if the repressed feelings are included in the pain treatment.

This requires an accurate assessment of the various emotional and hereditary factors that play a role with chronic pain, so that we can then address them.

That's why I asked my patient the following questions:

  1.  When and where did the pain start?
  2.  What exactly happened at the time the pain startet?
  3.  How did you feel when you heard your diagnosis and the need to have surgery?
  4.  Have you had operations and hospital care before?
  5.  Were there any frightening comments from doctors, nurses or other medical staff?
  6.  Have you suffered from similar pain in the past?
  7.  Are there any ancestors who suffered from similar pain?
  8.  What feelings are you facing about your condition or pain right now?
  9.  If the part of the body that is either in pain or sick could talk, what would it want to communicate?
  10.  Who would you be without the condition or the pain?
  11.  What do you not have to do or be while you are sick or in pain?

Your body is very wise. When the body hurts, we need to examine what emotional and inherited feelings underlie the pain or the sick condition. 

The body stores past feelings. It forgets nothing. Repressed feelings block your energy system, your meridians and chakras. This in turn has the effect of affecting organs, muscles and the immune system (to name but a few). The longer the blockages last, the more the body is affected.  

Our genes are affected by our chemistry. Changing the emotions with tapping or the emotion code has a neurological and chemical effect on the cardiovascular system, immune system and hormones, to name a few.

When negative emotions are dissolved, there is a physical and psychological response at the same time.

Once we begin to resolve these trapped and repressed emotions, the body can let go of the pain.

The less negative feelings burden the body, the sooner solutions can be found. Then suddenly alternative ways can be found to support the healing process.

Exactly that happened to my patient. Not only did she find the right doctor and the right clinic, the specialists also had time for her.
