Before rushing into a healing approach, it is crucial to understand how disease actually gradually develops over time. In this podcast I explain the infograph called: The 12 steps circle of disease.
In my holistic healing advice I would like you to change from the root and I therefore use the 4 components of ME/CFS
After helping many people with ME/CFS I have come to the conclusion that the body can heal itself better than we can ourselves or can possibly understand. Many people report a better phase in their lives before a stressful event started the weird symptoms. If this event is commonly called as a viral infection or other stressors, I believe that the body is trying to heal by releasing old stressors. The years before ME/CFS have for everyone been stressful and were not healthy at all. After a period of relative calmness the body starts to release the stress and enters the healing phase. All we need to do is to learn how to deal with this and support our bodies. For almost everyone it is crucial to let go of old and stuck emotions as well as thoughts, beliefs and physical stressors in their lives. Helping them do this is my job and sometimes I can see very fast results, depending on how big the level of exhaustion is.
By calming down the nervous system, most secondary symptoms will gradually dissolve. Guide your body to the natural place where it can do this on its own. You will feel much better once you relearn how to rest properly. With neuroplasticity you can also reprogram the stress response of the body.
It’s okay to treat secondary symptoms with detoxing or diets. But do not expect big results for the primary symptoms without addressing them. You can easily get involved in these kinds of protocols, but if you don’t deal with the real cause, don’t expect long term results. The exhausted body and immune system will remain a perfect habitat for pathogens and the gut still has problems with absorbing nutrients.
From a quantum-science point of view, we need to raise our vibration.
Before you are looking for any treatment, you should understand or discover your original trigger and understand how ME/CFS or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome develops in the body. Learn as well about the secondary symptoms that are really making you feel exhausted. You can find an article here that explains the stressful personality that you have created over time. Analyse how this is working for you in your life. Find out your coping mechanisms, work on self-love and authenticity, identify your triggers, calm down the nervous system and work with neuroplasticity.
People heal with many different approaches with ME/CFS. Yes, healing is totally possible for you. The reason why they will tell you that young people can recover much easier, is that it is easier for them to adapt their personality and to change.
Every treatment form should focus at least on one of the four components to address chronic exhaustion, adrenal fatigue and all your personal stressors. After that you will need to take steps in the direction of what your body actually wants, this is usually love, connection, safety, peace of mind and joy. To do that you will also need to embrace your shadow side. Anger, fear, helplessness, shame, pride, desire, grief & guilt are there to guide you and show you your boundaries. Suppressing these emotions in the unconscious will make you ill and stuck in a lower level of consciousness. This will all be a process of trial and error, and that’s okay.
You should know…
That I have experienced what you are going through and that I have committed myself to help as many people as possible. The road to recovery has not been anything near easy to me. Partly because I had to invent my wheel, but also partly because I was too stubborn to look at myself in some ways. Don’t make the same mistake and keep an open mind to the things I am suggesting.
I think recovery should be as much fun as possible. Part of the fun is humor and having fun with others. I am not a big fan of spending a lot of time alone on the internet and dwelling in the negativity and toxicity of online platforms. I do feel like building a positive place for fatigued warriors to calm down and heal together. One day, a beautiful ME/CFS retreat will exist. Dream with me.
Humans are a social species, and recovery should be full of love and joy.
