Are You Prone To Chronic Illness? Find Out Here

Share this article:

Can anyone be prone to chronic illness? The answer is very simply yes. But… I’m not talking about DNA or heredity. Nor does that mean by the way you can’t experience healing in your life. On the contrary.

There is one very simple explanation why anyone can be prone to chronic illness. And it is still a reason which is known to very few people.. Once you know what it is, a lot in your life is going to make sense and will open you up to new possibilities of healing.

Many medically trained people do not know the reason, and once they do know they don’t know what to do with it. They don’t know how to integrate it into an approach that is healing and nurturing for the person they are treating.

This for the simple reason that in the current medical model a person (a body) is seen and treated as a machine. Seen and treated as parts.

A person is not seen as a system: an organic and holistic system. And the reason why someone is prone to a chronic illness is part of the holistic system and does not fit in the awareness of the current medical approach. 

And the reason is this..

Ever Feel Really Lonely? Here’s How Chronic Illness can HELP You.

Share this article:

Do you ever feel lonely? I mean really really lonely? So isolated from the world that you cease to believe that anyone or this universe cares about you? Chronic illness may seem the enemy in this picture, even the cause of this isolation, but this is a misconceived idea. Here’s how chronic illness is actually here to help you release the cause of loneliness and isolation.

It can be so heart breaking. That feeling of being all alone and feeling utterly unloved and unlovable.

Boy, did I used to feel that a lot! And on occasion my ego can still trick me into believing it’s true.

First, of all, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that when you’re dealing with the pains and debilitations of a chronic illness, you’re not able to do all the things you like to do.

You are less mobile and have less energy. Sometimes to the point that all you did in a  day was lie on your bed.

Little chance then of being in other people’s company and doing what you love. And bigger chance of feeling more blue.

Secondly, the information out there about chronic illness is mostly so negative, that it’s easy to feel downhearted and without much hope.

This information is  predominantly focussed on the painful symptoms, medications (and possible side effects) and what is no longer possible.

It takes away all feelings of freedom and enjoyment of life.

Depressing indeed!

However, what most of these information leads fail to mention and are completely unaware of is Read the rest of this entry »

How To Trust Your Body When Experiencing A Chronic Illness

Share this article:

When you’re dealing with a chronic illness it can feel like your body has abandoned you and isn’t your own anymore. For how can your own body produce such an amount of pain or fatigue or disability? How can you ever trust your body again, if you’ve ever trusted your body before at all?

Your own body can feel like your personal enemy with a chronic illness and the connection you felt with your body may disappear altogether. You can lose complete faith in your body and its ability for healing.

And this is understandable and actually very easily explained for 2 simple reasons.

Rheumatoid Arthritis – The Resurrection of You

Share this article:

[Rising Phoenix by Keith Agcaoili]

Easter is here. A time when generally speaking the story is told and celebrated of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. A story of light after dark. Of joy after pain. And of rebirth.

In every way it is similar to the healing journey of rheumatoid arthritis.

There is pain to start with, hardship and disbelief. Dealing and struggling with the reality of RA and the impact and changes rheumatoid arthritis has on your everyday life and your future.

But then, if you choose, there is a renewed sense of joy, of deeper understanding, of love and of forgiveness.

The light after the dark.

The rebirth of you.

Because, rheumatoid arthritis, Read the rest of this entry »

The Reason Rheumatoid Arthritis Is In Your Life

Share this article:


You know, in all the years rheumatoid arthritis has been in my life, from the very beginning I always wondered why RA had come into my experience. I knew in my heart there had to be a reason. And that there had to be a way to heal it.

It’s been 15 ½ years and I have looked pretty much everywhere. In the beginning I looked into various alternative therapies like acupuncture, Chinese herbs, magnets, diets, detoxes and kinesiology to name a few. Plus applied medical treatments as well.

These methods can definitely support and enhance your health and well-being and each of these have their purpose and benefit. However, the one thing that is lacking and the one thing these approaches  do not address is the one thing that I have come to believe is the main reason something painful like rheumatoid arthritis ‘appears’ in our lives.

And that reason is Read the rest of this entry »
