Empathic Illnesses: Do You Absorb Other People’s Symptoms? by Dr. Judy Orloff

Empathic illnesses are those in which you manifest symptoms that are not your own. Many patients have come to me labeled“agoraphobic” with panic disorders, chronic depression, fatigue, pain, or mysterious ailments that respond only partially to medications or psychotherapy. Some were nearly housebound or ill for years. They’d all say, “I dread being in crowds.

Nothing more than a marketing word. My invitation is to choose an empowering story, an empowering

Many years ago I read in a book about a large hot water bag that you can lay on top of.  It was in one of Kevin Trudeau’s books Natural Cures They Don’t Want you to Know About, I believe.    It was called the Fomentek Hot & Cold Water Bag.   Well at first I think I purchased a medium sized one and that was good but I needed more surface area so I went for the large bag.    I have since probably gone through about at least 15 or 20 of these bags over the years, because they do wear

Fresh Ideas: My Teacher: Crohn’s Disease

Fresh Ideas  by Kathy Walters Three months ago, I was approached by Joel Sprechman, founder of www.www.onegreatgut.com, because my brother had told him, “Talk to my sister.

Welcome back.  I am now going to take you deeper too more powerful levels of healing. The third level is, the mental level.  Obviously, it has to do with your thoughts and thought process which really come from your mental programing.  You run our life and body on programs that are set up, in your mental level, before the age of reason, usually age 5.  All things that you see, hear and do prior to 5 is set into our unconscious as fact, unchallenged.  After age 5 you have a filter, you become capable of making your own decisions.  This

Tara heard a voice whisper in her ear, “You’re dying.” Matt never thought he’d run a marathon again. Luke’s dreams of traveling as a Missionary were over. I wondered if I’d ever play ice hockey again. These are the harsh realities faced by Inflammatory Bowel Disease patients caught in a medical system that has one way of treating IBDs; suppress or die. If suppressing your immune system that is screaming for help doesn’t work, you are shit out of luck. Oops, it’s time to cut out your intestines.
