Life’s Alarms

When bad things happen to our body, it is the sound triggered by life’s alarms. The only way to stop that sound is by removing the cause for the alarm…

When my second son was growing up, I was involved in a rapidly growing business with all the sacrifices that go with it… long hours at the office and no time for the kids…

Young children need attention from their parents, and they will try many different ways to receive it. My son received real attention when he was sick. Whenever my kids got sick it was a wake-up call for me. I would drop everything and sit beside him, read stories, play and try to make him comfortable in any way I could. Over time he subconsciously realized that the best way to get my attention is to be sick.

I believe that the auto immune diseases he got, the most serious being Graves disease in which the immune system attacks the thyroid and other parts of the body were triggered by his subconscious mind in order to get attention.

Now that’s just my opinion, not a scientific conclusion, but… after a final decision by the thyroid specialist to remove his thyroid and control his body’s metabolism with pills for the rest of his life, we did some intensive mental work and the problem is now in remission for over 2 years.

The case I am trying to make is that most illnesses we experience may have their roots in our own mind for reasons we do not necessary understand. The mission that I set for myself is to help others see through the blind spots in their life so they can start  the healing process.
