A good sign that there's an ongoing underlying emotional issue when looking at any chronic "dis-ease" is simply the fact that it is showing up in a chronic fashion. It is persisting.
When unpleasant symptoms such as diarrhea are showing up with Crohn's, Colitis or IBS/Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the positive news is that the person is already in the healing phase of an "indigestible anger" conflict. German New Medicine (GNM), as discovered by Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, describes how we respond to biological conflicts, such as an "indigestible anger conflict", with a conflict active phase, followed by a healing phase, if the conflict is resolved. Additionally, the response of the body is a functional one, to help increase adaptability to the conflict, to act as a survival mechanism, and/or to make the body more able to deal with the conflict if it should arise again.
An "indigestible anger" conflict is simply a conflict where the person feels anger toward a person, a situation or a circumstance. This is not momentary anger, like feeling angry if a driver cuts you off in traffic. This type of anger is, as described, "indigestible", where you feel you just can't "break it down", "digest it", or "get over it".
If the anger on the specific topic were not reactivated, a person would have the diarrhea-like symptoms once, and it would be done. It would not become chronic. However, the chronicity occurs when the conflict is reactivated. While the anger is "hot", a person is likely to experience lesser symptoms, if any. It is only when the person is feeling like he is out of the "hot zone" that the symptoms start to show up and intensify.
There are 2 ways to resolve this anger:
1) Resolving the issue through practical means, when this is possible. However, this means your wellness depends upon whether an external circumstance changes, and this is not ideal.
2) Resolving the issue on an internal, emotional and energetic level. LifeCore uses a combination of psychotherapy and EFT, the Emotional Freedom Techniques, to help clients achieve this.
The goal is then to help the client let go of anger and to free himself of the chronicity of his symptoms.
Here's to letting go of the anger and holding onto happy thoughts instead!
