Fibromyalgia: The disease of unexpressed emotions

Our emotional states can favor all kinds of diseases: hypertension, cardiac dysfunction or nervous disorders of different types. Different ailments can help not only transform our physical health, but also facilitate healing on a deeper level. The secret is to discover and understand the messages contained in physical disorders in order to get to know ourselves and live better.

To understand this connection, we first have to recognize that the mind and the body are a whole ; Normally, we consider the body as a “container” that accompanies us, which we must take care of and when it is damaged, we must take it to the doctor to repair it. Unfortunately this vision is very limited. It denies the complexity of energies that make up our entire being, energies that flow and intercommunicate. (…) There is no separation between what happens in the mind (thoughts and feelings) and what happens in the body .”

One thing to note about Fibromyalgia, because its symptoms are poorly understood, those who suffer from this disease feel that others do not believe them because the pain is not seen. Fibromyalgia is considered a controversial diagnosis and some authors state that it should not be considered a disease due, among other reasons, to the lack of abnormalities in the physical examination, objective laboratory tests or medical imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis.

Fibromyalgia is officially called a group of poorly understood musculoskeletal symptoms and disorders, which are fundamentally characterized by extreme fatigue, persistent pain, stiffness of variable intensity of the muscles, tendons and a wide range of other psychological symptoms, such as difficulties sleeping, rigidity morning sickness, headaches, and problems with thinking and memory, sometimes called “blackouts” that often impede people’s routine functioning. It is a ‘non-contagious’ disorder present in approximately 3-6% of young women, commonly between 20 and 50 years of age.

Today we will share an interview with Mª Àngels Mestre, a woman who suffered from fibromyalgia and who, without an official response from her doctors, was able to get out of it on her own merits. Since then he has dedicated himself to writing on the subject and advising patients with this and other chronic diseases. We hope it will be of great help.

1. What exactly is fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is the disease of unexpressed emotions. It is the result of an internal conflict, we have generated it. The most affected organ is the liver, repository of contained emotions according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. He regulates the fasciae, muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, veins and arteries, and sight. This organ is also in charge of detoxifying all the toxins that make us sick, both external and internal.

2. What are the most common symptoms?

Fibromyalgia has a wide range of symptoms, the main one is generalized musculoskeletal pain, with stiffness and fatigue, which is accompanied by decreased concentration and memory, insomnia, irritable bowel, irritable bladder, headaches, anxiety , restless legs syndrome, chest pain, strong and painful periods, decreased vision, cramps, etc.

3. What kind of people suffer from it?

To have health and harmony we have to align thinking, feeling (emotions) and acting (action/word). In fibromyalgia there is poor management of thoughts and emotions, because their energy is not released in action or through words. The action is repressed and the energy of thought and emotion is blocked in the form of tension, which manifests itself through pain and a wide variety of symptoms.

4. Why are more cases found in women than in men?

The woman is more emotional and more practical. Their blocks are more emotional, while the man is more mental and theoretical. On the other hand, the factor that makes this disease possible is repression. There is no doubt that, in our society, from childhood, women are more subject to repression than men.

5. Where does this disease come from?

Like all diseases, fibromyalgia is multifactorial, but its origin lies in rigid cultural, family and social patterns, which produce repression in childhood. The child copies these patterns to feel loved, and becomes obedient and submissive without being so, and begins to develop a false personality, moving away from his essence. The psycho-emotional defects that accompany the patient are: perfectionist pride to feel valued by the environment and contained anger, an emotion that, if not released, is devastating to health.

6. Does it have any kind of cure or is it really a chronic disease?

Health can be recovered if this is our will, we have the necessary information and we are willing to make changes from the globality of the human being. We need a great transformation of the way of thinking, feeling and acting, which generates a new healthy, free and happy person.

7. What is transcranial stimulation?

Transcranial stimulation is based on the production of an electrical current in areas of the brain. We know that electric current creates electromagnetic fields, so from my point of view, I don’t think it’s the most appropriate for fibromyalgia. If we want to increase neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin, we have less invasive tools, such as food, the first medicine. To increase the level of neurotransmitters, I recommend legumes, which contain tryptophan, as it is an inducer of these neurotransmitters.

8. How can the symptoms be improved?

To heal, the following changes are necessary: ​​the change in attitude leads us to stop feeling like victims to take responsibility, stop being passive to be active, beginning to self-manage the disease as protagonists through empowerment.

Let’s not expect them to cure us, some nonconformity and rebellion is necessary to make our own decisions and direct our lives. We also need a change of lifestyle, simplifying it and letting go of stress. Likewise, it is necessary to replace the established patterns with our lived and understood experience, which will help us to say no without feeling guilty. It is essential to change habits that harm us, especially that of food, a diet that cleanses our liver of toxins, including those of medication, that gives us energy, alkalinity, that stimulates our immune system, and that is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.

9. Is this a type of modern disease?

No. Diseases are born due to the psycho-emotional defects of humanity, but they increase and are aggravated by lifestyle and poor diet. Currently this disease has spread due to the self-demand that women have imposed on themselves to reach all areas that modern life shows them, such as the work profession, family, home, social relationships, etc. All this, many times, without the possibility of directing his life.
