We are learning about how our biology is working to help us survive, and keep you alive, even if it’s running a program for illness.
Now I’m going to walk you through the 3 phases of disease!
Phase One: Conflict
This conflict phase begins immediately when the trauma happens. The emotional trauma marks your brain, affects your body and begins to try to figure out a way to resolve the trauma on its own.
For example, when I was 3 years old and was taken away from my home and father in the middle of the night: TRAUMA, shock, and conflict hit my brain. I experienced a Separation conflict as well as a Loss conflict.
One of two things happens in this conflict active stage: depending upon the type of trauma, your tissue is breaking down, or you’re building a mass of tissue.
The whole time that I was separated from my father, I had no idea I was in a conflict. My brain was saying, “We’re going to be breaking down her skin, the organ which represents separation, while we’re in this conflict.”
When you’re in this conflict active stage, you don’t really have symptoms. You don’t even know
anything’s happening. The only symptoms you really have are that you don’t sleep well. You obsess over things. You may be cold a lot. There’s no pain. There’s no inflammation. None of that.
People who say, “Oh, I’m never sick. I never have pain or inflammation.” I wonder, are they in a chronic conflict phase because there are no symptoms? Or are the continually dealing with their emotional stuff.
Phase 2: Resolution
The resolution phase happens when the root conflict is — you guessed it — resolved! For me, this phase was triggered when I was reunited by my father after 43 years and stayed with him as he recovered in the hospital.
My brain understood that the separation conflict was now over. So the trauma ring on my brain repaired and then signaled my skin, which is the organ that ties to separation conflicts, to heal.
Phase 3: Healing
The healing phase is triggered by the final resolution of the original emotional trauma or conflict. This phase is when you experience pain, inflammation, symptoms, fevers, and so on.
If you had been breaking down tissue while in a conflict phase, then that tissue needs to repair. On the contrary, if you are in a conflict phase and the tissue was building up into a mass of tissue, then it needs to be broken down with the help of TB bacterium. The type of trauma and the tissue involved will determine whether the body area is breaking down or building up.
There are two parts to this healing phase. In the first half of the healing phase you feel fatigued and will experience pain and inflammation as the tissue heals. As you move through the end of that healing phase, you begin to get your vitality back. You start to feel like you again.
What is Hanging Healing?
When people have chronic Lyme they think “Okay, well maybe that separation thing happened, but that happened 25 years ago, and I’ve had Lyme for 25 years.”
There’s a thing called a hanging healing where you can get stuck in part 1 of the healing phase. During your conflict your brain triggers the body to break down tissue into microperforations.
Let’s talk about this in the context of the conflict of separation. This person resolves the conflict, separation is no longer there, and they go into a healing phase. Inflammation or disease shows up. The tissues are trying to heal. Bacteria and viruses can actually help the body to heal in the healing phase.
But if they keep getting sucked back into the conflict while they’re simultaneously trying to heal, they can get stuck in the symptoms of the disease. Maybe they have a tumultuous relationship with their mother. One week they feel close, the next they’re fighting and they feel distant. This puts them in a hanging healing of separation until they completely resolve the conflict and move on to normal health.
The healing process happens in two parts. You get tired, you are fatigued, you have inflammation, you experience pain. Toward the end of that healing phase, you start to get your vitality back. You start to feel like you again, but if you keep getting sucked back into drama and trauma with regards to that separation conflict, then you’re just kind of hanging there. That’s when you see chronic symptoms.
Applying this to Yourself
Once you start looking at any type of disease, whether it’s Lyme, or cancer, or anything else, and you follow the conflict – resolution – healing 3 phases of disease, you start putting pieces together.
Now that you have an overview of the characteristics of each phase of healing, you can begin to turn introspective and think about which one might fit you right now.
In the next article, we’ll dive into how you can begin to uncover your own root cause.
