Get Rid of Acid Reflux Disease by Controlling Stress

Get Rid of Acid Reflux Disease by Controlling Stress
My mission to get rid of acid reflux disease (gerd) got new hope, when I finally understood this: for hundreds of years modern doctors have considered the mind and body to be separate entities, having little to do with each other. Now, more and more, doctors are finding that the mind and body are very intimately connected and that the mind has a great deal to do with how the body is feeling and functioning.

Alarm and Despair

When I first found out I had gastric acid reflux I was scared. My whole life had been pretty stressful already and now this; this pain; this extreme discomfort. I was told by my doctor that if the many drugs I was prescribed to take didn't work, then I would have to learn to live with it.

At first, I felt alarmed at the possibility of living on drugs for acid reflux indigestion the rest of my life. Then I felt despair because I am a life loving person and I wanted to have the energy and enthusiasm I once had.

Not A Quitter

So after my pity party I decided to take responsibility for my own health; I DID want to get rid of acid reflux. It has been an exciting journey and now I am thankful for the experience of having the gastric acid reflux.

Why? I have learned so much about myself, about life and about life's energy. I have learned that gerd is a psychogenic disorder.

What's that? Psychogenic means beginning in the mind or emotions/having to do with mental conflicts. I didn't understand at first . . . I was defensive! I thought, "Hey now, I have been a cheerful and charismatic person my whole life! I'm not a down-in-the-mouth, feel sorry for myself type."

I wasn't happy to think about taking responsibility for suffering with this gastric reflux indigestion. NO! . . . it's just something that happened to me.

The Mind Body Connection

I am a very emotional person. Everything is bigger than life and I feel strongly about LOTS of things. I have handled most projects in my life as though they were an emergency or the whole world depended on me.

My view of life was "Life is hard". I've a tendency to burn the candle at both ends and take on too much at once. I have been like the energizer bunny my whole life.

I've been someone who gives to and takes care of everyone but myself. I secretly wished. though, that I could just slow down and take care of me. Over time life seemed to start to implode (opposite of explode).

I had some experiences that seemed like failures and huge disappointments. Things started eating away at me. . . and eating away . . . and my life was becoming hard to swallow. Are you seeing the body mind connection of acid reflux disease?

To Know Me Is To Heal Me

The more I get to know myself and feeeel myself the better I am healing on my wonderful path to get rid of acid reflux disease.

I don't swallow my feelings any more and I don't let my emotions eat away at me. I am learning to be at peace with myself and the world and I am feeling better and better everyday I live.
