Every cell in your body holds hundreds of pages of information which characterizes who you are. Your cells contain DNA which is the blueprint of your body–DNA you inherited as well as your very own memories. Your cells remember and hold all the information from your past right up to the present and are constantly updating this information. This cellular memory retains information on all levels of your being, physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
When you go through a traumatic experience, your body suppresses the overwhelming situation by storing the memory in your cells, and you can carry these memories with you for your entire lifetime. You may be holding onto negative memories that go right back to when you were a child. Each time you experience the same negative emotions your cellular memory is activated and you experience the same anxiety response as when you first lived through the experience. If your body and spirit are not strong enough, the body will break down and never recover; the result being the development of cancer.
My oncologist spoke of this to me; he had me trace my life back to my childhood. He said likely something had happened to me—some suppressed trauma that is the cause of my cancer. I remember being surprised, but since then have developed a better understanding.
Breast cancer, for example, is often the result of abuse or neglect on the part of a male figure. Ovarian cancer is often the symptom that presents when a woman has selflessly given up a significant passion for the benefit of others, typically family. Constant conflict, guilt and shame, can easily paralyze the body’s most basic functions and lead to the growth of a cancerous tumor. Cancer can also be the response of the negative emotions stemming from resentment and anger. “A Leap of Faith”, the 1980’s true-story movie about Debbie Ogg, is a great example. Once Debbie was able to resolve the suppressed resentment and anger from the traumatic sickness and death of her mother, she was able to heal from her “incurable” Lymphoma.
The most common emotional wounds that can manifest as serious physical disease are abuse, rejection, abandonment, humiliation, betrayal and injustice. Some people have endured a number or combination of these wounds. The take-home is that any physical problem is a manifestation of dis-ease on psychological and/or emotional levels.
If we want to cure our cancer, we must find the cause of our cancer. If we don’t find the cause of our cancer, and merely treat the symptoms (such as the tumor), we have a strong chance that it may recur.
It’s Not Just About the Mind….
Cellular memory can also help us find the physical root causes of illness and its contributors with the use of applied kinesiology (muscle testing). I was curious about this so I consulted with Mike Carey, who has been doing muscle testing for many years and has used cellular memory and the electricity of the body to determine the cause and the natural remedy for many illnesses. Working with Mike, I discovered that I had heavy metal toxicity and that some common herbs might correct the imbalances that have been making me sick and causing me great pain. Just one week after starting my remedies, my liver toxicity and heavy metal poisoning were gone; the pain in my hands I have had for over ten years had subsided–two weeks later and the pain is pretty much gone. With the pain, goes some illness-supporting inflammation. For the full story: Cellular Memory and Your Health.
Deep down I know that there were many contributors to my demise, so as I like to be proactive about my health, I take it on from all angles.
Most of us have a complicated soup that created a cancer-friendly environment. Be it trauma, heavy metals or something else, again, we need to find the root cause of our cancer. A poor diet, one that is devoid of nutrients, does not in itself cause cancer, but it leaves us defenseless. My best advice is to change the cancer environment—uncover and resolve the causes of our cancer and move on to a life of wellness. And, please….eat your vegetables.
