Digestion is the processing of the material impressions of the world, whereby the body distinguishes between useful and useless substances and separates out the indigestible substances.
Therefore, it is mainly our relationship with ourselves and the world, but the circumstances of our meals affect its normal functions too.
The digestive system is connected to the energy center near the navel, therefore, the relationship withourselves and with others play a major role in its health.
The two extremes are those who focus almost solely on their careers and on themselves, and those who give up almost everything for the benefit of others.
This also includes the effect of fear on various things, e.g. of new things, unusual situations, inadequacies or ongoing stressful situations. Excessive pressure to perform, as well hopelessness and giving up can trigger harmful processes in the digestive system.
Addictions, exaggerations, the relationship between food type and work
These can lead to dependencies such as overeating, smoking, alcohol consumption or medication. However, they only distract people from facing the real problem. People with digestive problems often exaggerate certain areas of life and thus compensate for their lack of self-esteem.
Loss of appetite is a rejection of joie de vivre (happiness of life) and self-awareness. There is something that we don’t accept in ourselves, which may be traced back to the childhood and that is why we do not accept life to the extent that it is for us. Obesity is a kind of “protective belt”, an external defense against attacks on our personality. The weakening of the feeling of security in life and the weakening of the belief in ourselves contributes to its development.
Some take on too many tasks, work too much, others overdo it with pleasure, there are those who pile up the material things in life and it is never enough, others want to prove themselves constantly and they are always doing all kind of crazy things. And the craving for sweets is an expression of hunger for love through the body level. It is an interesting observation that those who do a lot of headwork prefer to eat salty foods.
Consumers of reserved, light, almost tasteless and soft foods avoid novelties, difficulties and confrontations with others. Gourmets, on the other hand, who are enthusiastic about all kinds of spices, as well as strong, spicy dishes, want the new, expect new impulses and experiences from life.
Another observation is that the difference between those who prefer harder and milder foods and their attitudes towards problems. The former ones tend to avoid the problems, while the latter faces challenges and actually demand challenges.
Emotional causes of stomach problems
The stomach takes the impressions from outside as things to be digested. It is the reception body that collects and processes the physical and mental nutrients. Stomach patients cannot consciously solve their problems and conflicts, hold back or become violent and almost spit fire. Stomach problems are also an expression of fear, the individual is afraid of the unknown, of the new and unexpected.
Those who are often in tense, exciting situations where they have to stand, are most likely to have stomach problems.
If you can’t let go of your anger, you will swallow your anger. It appears as gastric acid that flows into the gullet. When fears, worries and self-harm intensify, this is shown by heartburn.
In the case of a gastric ulcer, the individual digests his own stomach wall instead of processing external influences and problems. This person doesn’t have enough confidence to start the fight, but prefers to please others. There is a process here that the individual cannot solve and cannot get rid of. The patient’s internal struggle with his own limitations weakens his stomach’s ability to regenerate.
Too much competitiveness and depression weaken the stomach’s natural ability to regenerate.
Excessive responsibility is not good either, but the ability to solve tasks and challenges will help strengthen your health.
Positive feelings like joy, relaxation, sense of achievement, happy relationships and expressions of love have a very positive effect on your stomach.
Emotional causes of bowel problems
Bowel problems are mostly related to not being able to let go. The individual is often afraid to leave the past behind. On the other hand, the functioning of the small intestine is more closely connected to conscious thinking and that of the large intestine to the subconscious. Abdominal pain is a symptom of inner fear if you don’t trust your own abilities. Relaxation helps.
With intestinal inflammation, courageous action and the separation of necessary and unnecessary things in life are essential.
Small intestine problems are also related to criticality or its total loss. The presence of fear has a major impact on this organ. Fear of rejection and guilt or self-accusation can also contribute to inner sensitivity, which is projected onto the small intestine.
While the small intestine is associated with diarrhea, the large intestine is more likely to be associated with constipation. If you insist on things, especially material ones, then there is often fear that the spiritual content of the subconscious will come to light.
With colon inflammation, individuals are afraid to ralize themselves and adopt their own personality. Worries, negative experiences and exaggerated expectations of others contribute to this. At the same time, they suppress their own enthusiasm, prevent progress towards becoming healthy and suppress the natural expression of our personality.
The solution is to let go, look to the future and accept and live life.
Emotional causes of pancreatitis
The pancreas helps us process our food for pleasant feelings and affection. Some people get too much care, others too little love, and this can lead to confusion and even tension that can affect the health of the pancreas.
Sugar is the associated substance of love and sweet life. Diabetes arises from the desire for love and the inability to accept it. Many disappointments lead to bitterness, sooner or later the individual becomes dismissive or possibly rancorous.
The diabetic often holds back, cares for his old pain and wonders what would have happened if things had turned out differently. Diabetics also longs for love, but s/he doesn’t dare to actively experience, to realize, s/he doesn’t know how to give love, so he withdraws.
The pancreas is the organ that is involved in releasing energy and accepting the sweetness of life.
The diabetic does not dare to give himself fully to the feelings, but nevertheless demands fulfillment in the subconscious. He is slightly embittered and does not see the beautiful side of life in its entirety.
A person with pancreatitis is angry with life because life doesn’t give him/her the usual or expected joys. But it is our job to give it to ourselves, certainly that we deserve it.
If we understand that nothing is against us and that life is not a constraint, it can help us a lot to restore normal functioning.
With diabetes you have to learn to say no, you do not have to accept all unpleasant situations, but it is important to open yourself to the joys and emotions.
Emotional causes of biliary problems
Bile problems, especially inflammation and gallstones, harden your energy. The person does not allow natural negative reactions, does not show their anger, is in exigency, so the body, through gallbladder, helps to accomplish what needs to be done.
Grief about old things or disapproval of others can lead to bitterness and biliary problems. It is no coincidence that bile is also bitter and instead of suppressing the emotions and feelings that come from bitter things, they have to be recognized and processed.
Instead of suppressing it, we have to live and digest the less pleasant part of everyday stimuli, and accept it with conscious understanding. If we don’t do this and let grievance and anger “burn inside”, the risk of getting gallstones increases.
Bile problems can be associated with a specific person or family, a form of addiction when because of the strong attachment to a specific person or family the natural emotinal responses are suppressed. by suppressing sensation, natural emotional responses. These inner frustrations and dissatisfactions can lead to gallbladder obstruction, inflammation, and gallstones.
Emotional solutions to digestive problems
It is necessary to create a balance between joy, things that makes us happy and caring for others. That means having enough self-esteem and caring for other, but not out of coercion or guilt, but out of joy. It is important to accept yourself and the duties of life. It is important to find the middle course between receiving, accepting and letting go. Instead of suffering from imaginary injuries or real suppressed injuries, we should live the friendly, gentle side of life and enjoy the joys that life offers.
Instead of fighting against things that are already there, it is better to understand, process, talk about, express and experience so you can let go things that are needed to be let go and expereince all the things that we deserve.
It is much more important to improve our personal abilities, self-respect, positive attitude than to run after materialistic things or to flee to some diversionary activity.
With creating a great balance between accepting ourselves and having happy relationships with others can help prevent digestive diseases.
