Re: Physical Illness and emotional stress
One of the reasons why a number of us here continually stress castor oil usage is that weve found it to have powerfull and unusual results on our emotional reality. While having consideable affect on more gross body systems, its affecting the subtle systems can be extraordinary. Since most all illness has an emotional element that exacerbates our situation and can be evan more troublesome to mature. And since we usually work on this part of our predicament thru intellect, we miss the fact that there is a strong hidden subtle physical connection that often feeds the more evident illness.
More often than not when we are seriously ill and especially chronicly ill, our nervous systems arrangments become severly taxed, in that, the flight response system called sometimes the sympathetic, meant to last for short periods, becomes dominant, and to the degree this persists, and some believe it can dominate for months or longer, we suffer evan more undue stress because of body chemistry and the inability to return to a relaxed state. Tho we know we are physically ill, we may not associate our deepening stress level to this basic but different controlling aspect of health.
Physical modalities like gentle sustained pressure chiropractic (among other labels sometimes called network), hatha yoga that isnt the energy raising type, or the egoicly driven position driven type, EFT and other similar modalities, and castor oil packs, offer the ballancing/correcting between the different nervous systems.
Its an amazing study how intricate the nerve ganglia interact w all our body systems and in this case our emotional glandular system. How many actions there are happening and the fact that this is still not understood completly by modern medicine.
