Stress and chronic pain can seem unlikely bed fellows, but in fact they go hand in hand.

stress and chronic pain

As an energetic being, everything in our life, in our bodies and in our minds are connected. There are no exceptions. Chronic ill health always starts first in our general being; we lose energy, our emotions change and our appetite and food desires changes. Only when these areas go unheeded will the problem descend into our physical being, into the organs and systems.

Stress is the number one factor which triggers ill health. Most people live in a more or less continual state of stress of varying degrees. Although much of this is to do with the normal way of life for most people, this is also related to how we perceive our world. But first let’s look at the normal life of most people.

Prof. George Vithoulkas, a Greek homeopath of international repute, talks about the effect of the environment on our organism. “The environment in which we live is inimical to our existence (pollution, stress, family problems, insecurities, etc) and makes our organism relapse very easily. We have the impression that we live in a better and more civilized era but for our organism it is the opposite.”

Most people have very little time for anything other than work or study and home duties. It is a never ending cycle of ‘things that have to be done’, instead of doing things that will enrich and empower us.

Often, when someone is pursuing a more financially rewarding career, the rest of their life suffers extreme poverty. The stress builds. They don’t have time to grieve, to listen, to answer their own inner questions. They become disconnected from life itself. Ill health is inevitable.

And often, those who are considered to be in poverty, are the most connected people, with the least stress in their lives, the best health and the greatest peace. One has to ask who is really the richer?

So has our society, with all its technological advances and scientific discoveries really served us? People are dying at earlier ages of very preventable diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

Whilst these questions may be of little interest for many people already caught up in “the rat race”, they are not powerless to make some healthy changes.

It is within everyone’s power to decide what they put into their mouth. If we insist on eating food which is unhealthy for us, don’t expect our bodies to function normally. Chronic pain and inflammation will sooner or later make itself known.

It is also within everyone’s power to decide on their health care choices. We can follow the masses and continue down a path that only masks our symptoms. Or we can step aside from what everyone else does and search for a system of health care that works by supporting what our body is trying to achieve, such as homeopathy.

Fear is another stress factor Prof Vithoulkas didn’t mention. And it is mercilessly and unethically used to control the population of the world. Fear of ill health is the number one trigger. This is what makes people unthinking queue up for damaging vaccines, for unscientific tests, for treatments that harm more than heal.

If we want to free ourselves from stress and chronic pain, then first and foremost we need to accept that the modern way of life is the cause. Then we need to start to think and become well informed. Only then can we make suitable choices that are most harmonious to us.
