Glasgow Herald - How I healed from chronic fatigue when I understood my body was not tired
 
My body told me to rest: I got better by doing the opposite.

Glasgow Herald April 28 2008 by Martin Greig 

www.theherald.co.uk

 

"I remember the morning. It is seared in my memory. It was a beautiful summer day, the first of my holiday. A world of possibilities lay ahead - only I was struggling to open my eyelids. Swinging a leg out of bed seemed like an effort. I looked at my alarm clock: 9.15am.

I showered and had breakfast. The tiredness hung over me like a storm cloud. My girlfriend phoned to make plans; I said I didn't feel up to doing much. I could feel my eyelids getting heavy again. I put down the phone and looked at the clock: 11am. I wanted to crawl back into bed"...  How I recovered from Chronic Fatigue - read full article

 

 

   

Article on Learn the real meaning of symptoms and their messages - what is your body really trying to tell you?

Symptoms and Messages

by Gilles Marin for the NZ Charter Journal October 2006

www.healthcharter.org.nz

Learn the real meaning of symptoms and their messages - what is your body really trying to tell you?

 

"Most people come for treatments because they are ill, in pain, or experiencing symptoms of discomfort. Any truly wholistic approach to healing involves understanding pain and other symptoms not as problems to be fixed but as messages to pay attention to. Treatment needs to be wholistic, focusing on increasing people’s self-awareness, including the parts that are in pain and want to feel good as well as the parts that protect them from feeling pain. Such an approach brings about true healing rather than simply curing the symptoms"... the truth about symptoms of illness and the gift of healing they can bring you - read full article here

 

 

Mickel Therapy - A Quantum leap in the healing of disease and energy disorders

Mickel Therapy - A Quantum Leap in Healing of Dis-ease

By Dr David Mickel and Dr Robert Bornstein

How Mickel Therapy is a quantum leap in the healing of chronic disease adn energy discorders

"Our experience has confirmed that each individual has the tools and intrinsic ability to correct the physical symptoms of chronic illness. We are not referring to healthy eating, “healthy” sleep habits, healthy activity and healthy breathing, all of which are vitally important to help to conserve and maintain your body’s resources.

Rather, we are describing the mounting evidence that emotional energy, which has been chronically mismanaged by internalization/suppression from early childhood through adulthood, leads to chronic disease states. We maintain that learning to manage this energy properly is the key to regaining control over a large spectrum of conditions to the extent of eliminating the symptoms altogether"... read full article

 

 

Healing from Within by Gilles Marin - Why is it we resist healing when we want to get better? Sometimes it feels easier to die than to get well
The 'Guardian' and Resistance to Healing

by Gilles Marin from his book "Chi Nei Tsang - Healing from Within

Why is it we resist healing when we want to get better? Sometimes it feels easier to die than to get well

 

"There is a side of us that resists healing. It is the part of ourselves that forgets to take medication, eats the wrong kinds of foods, prevents us from doing our exercises and meditations, and misses an appointment with our practitioner. It is a part of ourselves that we have learned to fight and tried to change in order to heal. This is a merciless part of ourselves we associate with the very reason we get sick. It is a part of ourselves that we have learned to absolutely hate and call “the enemy within’. Without it we wouldn’t be sick; without it we wouldn’t have to change!"....

The Six Conditions for healing

by Gilles Marin for Massage New Zealand Journal Spring 2006

www.massagenewzealand.org

The six pre-requisites for getting well and the need for safety

 

"Just as much as our brain, our entire abdomen profoundly establishes our affective life. Our enteric - or second - brain in our abdomen, with its battery of neurotransmitters and gift of memory, contains the archives of all our emotional life. The ancient Chinese knew this. They associated anger, anxiety, fear, worry and sadness with different areas of the viscera.

Chi Nei Tsang, a precise massage technique for the internal organs, comes from the most ancient of Taoist traditions. It is a profoundly simple and yet highly efficient way to dissolve the negative energies which manifest as countless somatic pathologies as well as mental and emotional disorders"....

What is Mickel Therapy?

By Kim Knight for Healthy Options Magazine

August 2006

The origins of Mickel Therapy and its underlying philosophy

 

"Mickel Therapy is an innovative body-mind treatment created by Dr David Mickel, who originally worked as a medical doctor in the UK. He developed an interest in CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia during his time as a GP, and becoming frustrated by conventional attempts to treat the conditions went on to train and work as an Eriksonian Therapist, later developing the treatment now known as Mickel Therapy.

Following its success in the UK, bringing it to nationwide attention, Mickel Therapy is now being practiced in various countries around the globe, and the first practitioners were trained in New Zealand in 2006"...  Mickel Therapy, the philosophy and its solutions for chronic illness - read full article

"How many of us were trained or even allowed to really feel ? E-motions (energy in motion) bring us information if we are willing to experience them. Unfortunately, many of us are on auto-pilot to resist emotions rather than allow ourselves to ‘feel’, which results in emotional charges being stored by the body as a self-protective mechanism. Left unresolved, they may eventually experienced be as emotional, mental or physical symptoms (ie.pain)"... How blocked emotions stop us from leading a healthy life - read full article here.

 

 

"Just as much as our brain, our entire abdomen, in its rich complexity not yet completely explored by modern science, profoundly establishes our affective life. Our enteric brain in our abdomen shapes our emotions and, in return is affected by these emotions. With its battery of neurotransmitters, and other psychoactive endogenous substances, the health of the abdomen has the power to give birth to discouragement or enthusiasm, helplessness or pleasure, depression or fulfillment. Gifted with memory, our belly contains the archives of all our emotional life"...Get to know the brain in your belly - read the full article
