Trapped Emotions and the Six Underlying Causes of Disease

If you are like most people, you have taken medication to suppress symptoms when you are not feeling well! While this can be very appropriate at times, this method of taking care of our health comes with some big drawbacks.

Waiting for disease to develop and then responding with drugs, surgery, and other invasive procedures is an ineffective and expensive way to approach healthcare. Rather than treating symptoms, we should be addressing the underlying causes of illness.

I worked in a brick-and-mortar chiropractic practice for 17 years. For the last 10 of those years, I specialized in treating people suffering from conditions deemed incurable by conventional medicine. My patients included people suffering from conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. I found that the biggest common denominator for all those patients was their “emotional baggage,” a phenomenon that I call “trapped emotions.” Simply put, the emotional events from their past had somehow stayed with them, continuing to imbalance them and manifest disease in their bodies.

Trapped emotions are energies that become lodged in the body and imbalance the body’s delicate functions. Trapped emotions are the largest underlying cause of mental and emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, self-sabotage, panic attacks, phobias, and more. In addition, these energies distort the normal energy field of the body, creating pain, fatigue, and all manner of disease.

Disease is nothing more than a collection of symptoms caused by imbalances in the body. I have found that there are six different types of imbalance that create all disease. In brief, these are:

Imbalance #1: Infections/Infestations

Infections — including viruses, bacteria, fungi, and mold — are the number one killer worldwide. Literally millions of people die every year from infection. Infestation refers to parasitic infestation. There are many different varieties of parasites, and few of those ever show up on a medical test. Trapped emotions make the body more susceptible to infections and infestations by lowering the body’s immune response.

Imbalance #2: Structural Misalignment (Subluxation)

The brain and spinal cord are connected to all the organs of the body via spinal nerves. When a spinal vertebra becomes misaligned, it puts pressure on the nerve that it houses instead of protecting it. This creates poor communication between the brain and organ, and vice versa. Poor nerve transmission and reduced communications will result in poor organ health and, eventually, disease. Trapped emotions will often create subluxation, while releasing them will often help to correct a misalignment or subluxation.

Imbalance #3: Nutritional Deficiencies

Most people have nutritional deficiencies, mainly because we don’t eat the way we should, and because many of our crops are grown in depleted soils requiring chemical fertilizers. Trapped emotions can make it more difficult for the body to absorb nutrients, leading to deficiencies.

Imbalance #4: Toxicity

Toxicity from heavy metals, industrial waste, and radiation is a new phenomenon worldwide. The average person takes in about 14 pounds of toxins per year in the form of food additives, humectants, preservatives, and food coloring. Toxins can be eliminated from the body; however, trapped emotions and other energetic imbalances can make detoxifying more difficult.

Imbalance #5: Energy Field Imbalances

The energetic body is highly organized. When you are born, you already have this highly organized energy body inside of you, and it is divided up into circuits and chakras. The circuits in your body are similar to the fuses in a house, only in your body, certain organs and certain muscles are on the same circuit. For instance, if you have a problem with your right knee, it’s probably because you have an imbalance in your gallbladder, because the right knee muscles are on the same circuit as the gallbladder. Likewise, if you have trouble in your left knee, it’s probably originating from a problem in your adrenal glands, because these are on the same circuit. Correcting imbalances in the body’s energy field will often have an immediate effect in relieving pain.

Imbalance #6: Trapped Emotions

Trapped emotions are truly an invisible epidemic in our world. As we go through our lives we experience different emotions all the time, which is completely normal. Sometimes, however, we experience very negative emotions such as anger, frustration, resentment, sorrow, sadness, and so on. Every emotion has a certain frequency or vibration. When we are feeling an intense emotion, the energy of that emotion can become trapped in the body.

Trapped emotions can occur at any age and they can even be inherited. They can cause inflammation, congestion, self-sabotage, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties. When an emotion gets trapped in the body you will continue to feel that emotion. For instance, if you have a trapped emotion of anger, you will find you become angry much more readily than you otherwise would. Why? Because part of you is already vibrating at that frequency.

When we find and release a trapped emotion, often we see an immediate healing effect as the body is allowed to return to its normal, healthy, undisturbed state. When this happens, we know we have gotten to the root cause of the illness.
