According to Dr. Gilbert, the most common ailments that send patients to doctors – such as joint pain, abdominal pain, fatigue, obesity, rashes, and headaches – are not purely physical problems. “Instead, they frequently have their origin in intense but suppressed emotions, extreme emotions, and internal conflicts deep within the human psyche,” she says. Therefore, the key to healing lies in coaxing the body to give voice to the emotional sources of illness. Then, very often, the symptom will disappear and the body will start healing.
