If you, like most of us have ever experienced symptoms that were uncomfortable, painful, worrying or embarrassing, you would probably like to know why!
According to the comprehensive Health Survey for England half of women and 43% of men in England are now regularly taking prescription drugs, the cost to the NHS is in excess of £15 billion a year.
The number of prescribed items in the community is accelerating faster than the population and yet we still have no definitive answer as to why we need them in the first place. According the ‘The Merck Manual’ (the definitive medical dictionary) over 95% of diseases have an unknown cause.
In our society, disease or illness is seen as being a fault in the body, that something has gone wrong, or our body is working against us but after two million years of evolution our bodies can’t be making mistakes, can they?
Often diseases or illnesses are attributed to common ‘risk factors’ such as smoking, poor diet, bad lifestyle, genetics and a vague use of the word ‘stress’. More often than not these risk factors are not present, in the case of breast cancer- the risk factors are absent for more than 70% of patients.
You may also have wondered why some people can heal after just one form of intervention while others take months or years and why even when people have the same ‘disease’ they experience it in completely different ways. If we understood why, how much easier would it be to resolve our issues and how empowered would we feel taking control of our own health.
Disease as a two phase process
Every disease process has two phases, after a significant emotional event, we experience the first phase (stress phase). In the stress phase we usually don’t feel ill but are often stressed, tense, have difficulty sleeping, have cold extremities and reduced appetite. Depending on the specific organ that reacts and which part of the brain directs it, the organ either increases in cells or function, or it decreases. Which organ is affected will depend on the shock and the emotions and feelings it brings up for you.
When we resolve the shock, either through a change of circumstance or internally letting go of the emotion, we go into the second phase, (otherwise known as regeneration or the healing phase). During regeneration the affected organ begins to re-balance, either reducing or rebuilding to counteract the effects of the stress phase. It is in this phase we usually experience the disease symptoms along with increased appetite, sleepiness and increased temperature.
In the middle of the second phase is the healing crisis, this is the point that corresponds with when things such as heart attacks, asthma attacks and epileptic fits happen.
At the time of the shock all of the information is recorded and stored in the unconscious mind, therefore until you fully resolve the underlying emotional issue, whenever you experience similar stimuli, you can trigger off the disease process again which is how people end up with chronic illness.
Meta-Health may have the answers
If disease is a biological programme that is triggered by a significant emotional shock, then it can’t be a mistake or random. Every disease can be understood as a biologically meaningful process with the goal of survival.
Meta-Health is based on the latest brain relay research, ontogenesis and embryology, epigenetics, systems and neuro-biology. It seems to answer a lot of the questions that have eluded scientists for years; the root cause of any illness, where someone is within the disease process and why some issues become chronic. The meta-health diagnostic process can also explain why other issues such as depression, anxiety and anorexia occur from a biological, psychological and behavioural perspective.
Using the Meta-Health diagnostic system means there is no guess work, complex hypotheses or vague generalisations, just fact and understanding of the person’s experience.
A bio-psycho-social and environmental model
Meta health is not a cure for specific diseases or a new therapy, but a diagnostic tool, it is the only approach that can give clients an understanding of the root causes of their illness and explains the relationship between how they think, feel and behave with a disease process.
As such the meta-health diagnosis comes before any therapies and enables the formulation of a unique bio-psycho-social meta-therapy-plan. Meta-health provides a framework that can bring together traditional, complementary and alternative therapies. Meta-health has already been used successfully by medical Doctors, Homeopaths, NLP Masters, Reiki Practitioners, EFT Practitioners, Life Coaches, Psychologists, Psychotherapists, as well as other health professionals.
Finding the meaning of any disease empowers us to take control and have an informed choice in how we heal and grow.
