Networking in Surrey

Express yourself! - It makes you better - and that's official.

A scientific study proved that writing your feelings in a diary every day will make you healthier. Two groups of people had blood samples taken. The first group then kept a diary for 2 weeks the second didn't. After that time, another blood sample was taken and that showed a significant improvement in all health indicators including immune system for the group keeping the diary.

I used to work in the corporate world in IT. I found technical support suited me best, so it meant rushing around solving problems for others, but I had regular migrains. This was very inconvinient, because I couldn't fullfill my hectic schedule and had my boss breathing down my neck. Whilst laid up in bed one day, I noticed that I felt so bad I couldn't do anything to distract myself except lie there and experience how I felt.

It was years later that I understood that illness often does this to people: stop them in their tracks and make them do something that they normally avoid doing - relying on other people, looking after themselves, listening to their own needs and desires. In my case my illness forced me to get in touch with my own feelings rather than 'do' life purely through my brain (and my brain was complaining about this, because it hurt). The moment I started to get in touch with my feelings (pain often forces you to do this) and live a more fun, balanced life according to the things that I 'felt like doing' my migrains never came back again!

Most of us are having or have had some kind of experience like this and it always boils down to the same thing: when you start to look at health holistically (ie the mind and body are two sides of the same coin), you realise that illness is not some random event due to faulty equipment. Your body is actually trying to look after you and draw attention to something that you are trying to ignore, because you think you should.

So how can we avoid illness before it even starts? by getting in touch with how we really feel about things. And the easiest way to do this is to check in with yourself regulary "how do I feel about this?" - just the acknowledgement itself is enough to make things better. Our feelings are actually quite useful to us as they can become the vehicle to change things in our life.

In my practice I work with clients to find out the feelings that have not been fully acknowledged, because they have somatised into illness. It is this that is treated. Once that feeling is allowed to play a part in your life, your body no longer needs to be ill!
