The number of patients referred to my practice for gastro-intestinal disturbances are often surprised that many of the little things they are doing, often without even knowing, are making their chronic condition worse...Elizabeth Bohorquez, RN, C.Ht
As they work with my books & CD programs, they find themselves understanding & then changing not only their food choices & other eating habits, but also their level of everyday tension. They can now recognize & manage their emotions, thoughts & program their mindbody connection for healing.
The number of people being treated for irritable bowel and gastric reflux is on the rise. Pay attention to the advertisements on television. Obviously they are playing to a huge audience. These chronic conditions are stress-related and sugar usually plays a role as well. For those with disorderly eating and binge behaviors, this poses enormous problems. The body cells never have an opportunity to rest and recover.
A large percentage of our society is in the same boat along with millions of other people, floating around, wondering how they got where they are, and how to get back to shore. It is very important to know the path traveled to the diagnosis of the disease, for it is on the path that the needed answers will be found. Irritable bowel syndrome and gastric reflux do not happen overnight. One doesn't just wake up with these diagnoses. The body is made up of millions of cells, each doing a separate job. Some cells simply don't like certain foods and can't manage them. When this happens the cells communicate this to you. You are known as the CEO, the one in charge of providing the supplies.
What happens next is particularly interesting and calls for an awareness study. The next time you are in the pharmacy or in the over the counter medication aisle in the supermarket, look at the numbers of antacids, stomach remedies, etc. that are available. Listen to the patter of the advertisements on TV. Some suggest that you take their product before you eat the offending food. Now think about that for a moment. If you know that a food offends, why would you eat it?
These chronic problems are stress-related and so it is very important to understand the kinds of stress. Food stress is one of those. When the hormones in the body are out of balance due to food stress, then the cells are going to communicate. Sugar can be the culprit, as well as poor nutritional intake. Sometimes those two are intricately woven together, each making the other worse. There are other kinds of stress as well, but when looking to manage those, one must look to manage all of the possible stressors including emotions and their crayons. You will be reading more about those a bit later in the book.
