Louise Hay is a really clever woman. I love her books. It seems so cranky at first, with her theories, but after a while you just *have* to believe her approach.
I get sinus pain, and now I know what causes it, I always analyse what's been happening to see *who* has caused me to have it come back, and there's always a reason.
Four years ago, I suddenly got appalling eczema, all over the top half of my body. In my hair, in my mouth, everywhere. The skin fell off my face and hands within three days, and I swelled up so much, my husband told (afterwards, fortunately!), that I'd looked like a frog! There was a risk I would have anaphylactic shock (like with peanut allergy), and collapse.
My usual doctor sent me to a dermatologist who just said 'you've become allergic to something - you have to try to identify what it is and avoid it.'
Thanks for that, Mr Specialist. That cost me £120 for half an hour's 'advice'. And he had eczema himself, so not a good advert.
My homeopath, though, took one look at me, and said ' Have you had any sudden emotional shock lately, anything to do with the past?' What a different approach!
I HAD had a shock - my Nsister had sent me ('anonymously', but I knew it was her from the handwriting on the envelope) a newspaper cutting from a letters page, where a woman was 'pleading' with other women who don't make a fuss of their mothers on Mother's Day to make the effort, beacuse one day, their mothers would be dead, like hers was, and then they'd be sorry. My Nsister often acts as 'go-between' for my Nmum.
This had made me really angry to receive, especially as it was 'anonymous', so I couldn't easily respond directly.
Apparently, eczema is a classic example of the body responding to extreme irritation and frustration in physical ways. I was given homeopathic chocolate, would you believe, which cleared it up within days.
I have read before that cancer is a sign of feeling unloved, so that's worrying that, in today's society, so many people get cancer now.
