Light Your Sparkle Summary
This article summarizes the core of healing--accessing the emotional, not just the physical. It discusses a patient with Lyme's disease who was sick 40 years and began to heal once they started to address emotional roots to illness. They stopped the cycle of illness. With references to some of my favorites, Alice Miller's books, "The Drama of the Gifted Child" and "The Body Never Lies," this article challenges us to overcome our resistance and biases towards emotional healing. The ACE's study offered scientific evidence that adverse childhood experiences (trauma) can make us sick. Stress, including emotional issues, take a toll on the body---this build up can contribute to illness.
