When living an empathic life,
health need to be a top priority!
Has being an Empath affected my health?
I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis, Osteoarthritis, Uveitis
and possibly Primary Sclerosing
Cholangitis...and that's just the "itisis". My Doctor's tell me
that these diseases are all connected to an Autoimmune Disorder
that appeared all at once when I turned forty years old or so.
But it wasn't all at once, really.
For years whenever I'd see a Doctor for a "well" visit,
they'd ask me if I had any infections or Flu like symptoms and
when I'd ask why I was told that my white blood cell count was
way off thechart! When I'd tell them that I felt fine they were
very surprised. One of them even tried to push the issue
stating that I must be ill, but I wasn't. Or so I thought.
Although I felt fine on the outside, something was eating me
away on the inside causing me internally to break down and
bleed. That something was Empathy. The years of taking
everything and everyone in, had finally taken it's toll on the
old system. Therefore, If you are an unskilled Empath and
haven't developed the art of shutting down or shielding you may
be introuble yourself someday.
When I presented this theory to my Doctor's they understood
where I was coming from with the whole mind/body connection
thing, but without any hard evidence they deemed my opinions
inconclusive and kept pumping me with steroids and powerful
immuno-suppressant medications anyway. After many years of
frustration and following traditional medical advice, I found
my condition was not going into reemission anytime soon and in
fact hardly gotten any better at all.
This is when I began to do my own research and decided to
adopt a more alternative lifestyleapproach to my medical
conditions. If it wasn't for the Internet I would've never
discovered all the different avenues available to me, both as
an Empath and an ill individual. I spent countless hours
sifting out tons of information and through trial and error
came up with a formula that seems to be working for me. I'm
still on the medications but through meditation, diet and
Empathic shielding I hope to be free of them all someday
The shielding process is a necessary aid that must not be
ignored and needs to be practiced daily. If not, the
accumulation of emotions will slowly permeate every cell
causing a mutation resulting in the immune system thinking it's
being attacked and it will defend itself, even against itself.
This is what I believe accounts for the accelerated white blood
count in my system that results in the attack on my body.
What I do is simple. I take ten minutes each morning and
evening, close my eyes and focus on my breathing. If your mind
begins to wander don't fight it. Be aware of it, let it go and
bring yourself back to your breathing. This works wonders for
me but you must be diligent and practice it daily for it to be
helpful. If my Arthritis isn't too bad I walk and meditate
allowing for an even better way to relieve stress and keep
depression at bay.
As far as my diet goes I'm eating about ninety percent
organic now as I believe that processed foods tend to
incite flare ups in me. This diet is both expensive and
time consuming in preparation but extremely worth it. I've
only been practicing this combination of diet, meditation
and exercise for a few months now but am already beginning
to see the benefits. I intend to stay on this path forever
and am looking forward to a better, brighter future.
