Anorexia and Bulimia~What's the Difference Emotionally?

by Maureen

Anorexia and bulimia are opposite eating disorders. Anorexia refers to starving oneself while bulimia means eating excessively and compulsively, then purging food by vomiting or using laxatives. These two disorders differ in their belief-based emotional origins, too. Anorexic individuals may believe that self-empowerment leads to abandonment while those with bulimia may believe that “disguised love”—rejection and punishment—are the same as love. Read More..

Success in Treating Sleep Apnea

by Maureen

Success in Treating Sleep Apnea When Erma came to me for help with sleep apnea, she was 56 years old and used a CPAP machine every night. (CPAP stands for continuous positive airway pressure.) After her first sessions with me applying the MO Technique, Erma simply forgot to put the machine on. After five once-a-month sessions, she packed up her CPAP machine and put it away. Four months after her treatments ended, she was able to sleep through the night with no problem. Read More..

Plantar Fasciitis:Are You Serving as the “Shock Absorber” For Others?

by Maureen

Are You Serving as the “Shock Absorber” For Others? By Maureen Minnehan Jones Published in Best Self Magazine--- …/ Are you the “shock absorber” for your family and friends? If so, it’s possible you could develop plantar fasciitis. After all, the plantar fascia ligament serves as the “shock absorber” for our feet. The plantar fascia ligament is a fibrous tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes while supporting the arch of the foot. It serves to hold structures together and keep them strong . If you strain your plantar fascia, though, the ligament gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed), causing your heel or the bottom of your foot to hurt when you stand or walk . When someone becomes the support system for everyone except himself or herself, it can greatly affect this ligament. In fact, individuals who have plantar fasciitis are prone to absorb the “slings and arrows” of the world around them. They tend to feel responsible for holding everything together; they take on the job of keeping family, friends, and others around them stable. Joy’s experience with plantar fasciitis A beautiful woman named Joy had tried everything she could think of to get relief from the extreme pain of plantar fasciitis. She came to me for a healing session to release the emotional component of this condition, eager for some help. The first question I asked was this: “Joy, are you being the ‘shock absorber’ for something that’s happening in your life?” She gave me a puzzled look and then confessed, “Yes I am. I have a dear friend who just lost her husband unexpectedly. I got right in there and have been trying to keep everything together for her. I have been the one absorbing the shock of it all.” What an “aha” moment for Joy. She also said she was frustrated and angry because she was going through a difficult time with her son. She herself needed support but wasn’t getting it because she was so involved taking care of ... Read More..

The Emotional Roots of Digestive Food Enzyme Problems

by Maureen

by Maureen Minnehan Jones When we eat food, our digestive system doesn’t absorb food; it absorbs nutrients. So what happens when we don’t have enough digestive enzymes? We can’t break down our food—which means even though we’re eating well, we aren’t absorbing all the good nutrition from it. The thought pattern “but not for me” can be a strong factor. In fact, the body may react to this pattern by having difficulty assimilating life's nutrients . Researchers have brought to light scientific proof that shows psychological problems lead to physiological changes. For example, emotional stress can cause physical responses—from arteries narrowing to gastric juices increasing production. New science-based evidence is part of the fast-expanding field of psychoneuroimmunology that examines how the neurological and immune systems interact. It is constantly providing new clinical evidence of the connection between thoughts and health. What is the emotional component of digestive enzymes problems? “But not for me.” Individuals have real difficulties assimilating life’s nutrients. They believe they “don't deserve” goodness; rather, they have to “earn their supper.” They may believe that everything is geared for everyone else except them, thinking, “Others might have the secret for success but I never will!” Digestive system problems entail the emotion of “I can’t take this in.” Typically, their needs came last in their families, and they were up to their eyebrows in continual stress. Thus, in their current experience, anything the environment offers becomes a “poison apple.” That’s all they can expect! Tess’s experience with digestive problems My client Tess could relate to this. Her mother was extremely rejecting of her growing up. She beat her daily and gave Tess absolutely no nurturing. In fact, her mother told Tess she wished she’d never given birth to her. Tess said that her mother—in her 90s today—is still as mean as ever. Tess had always wanted to go to medical school a... Read More..

If You’re Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop, You May be Opening the Door to Shingles

by Maureen

Published at Best Self Magazine-- … … … If You’re Waiting for the Other Shoe to Drop, You May be Opening the Door to Shingles What are shingles? Consider what this medical website says: Shingles are a painful viral infection and blisters along the nerves. Shingles occurs when the virus that causes chickenpox starts up again in your body. After you get better from chickenpox, the virus "sleeps" (is dormant) in your nerve roots. In some people, it stays dormant forever. In others, the virus "wakes up" when disease, stress, or aging weakens the immune system. Some medicines may trigger the virus to wake up and cause a shingles rash. It is not clear why this happens. But after the virus becomes active again, it can only cause shingles, not chickenpox. ( ) But why could this happen? Let me suggest that a “waiting for the other shoe to drop” thought pattern may be linked to developing shingles. Sounds impossible? Not really. Here’s what another health-related website says: Thought generates complex combinations of biochemicals which, in turn, stimulate a variety of receptors that create a change in your body structure. An understanding of how to have a healthy diet of thoughts and beliefs can have a great impact on your health. We are all educated to eat well, yet little consideration is given to how your thought diet might be affecting your health. ( To explore this idea, ask someone who has shingles this question: “Is there anything in your life you’ve been dreading?” If you’re “waiting for the other shoe to drop,” doing so may cause the un healthy diet of thoughts and beliefs that compromises one’s immune system. The result? It “wakes up” the chickenpox virus—shingles—complete with its symptoms of blisters and nerve inflammation. As I’ve written about before (please see my article Endless Hope @ ), the underlying emotional co... Read More..

A Missing Piece in Understanding Alzheimer's Disease

by Maureen

Statistics reveal that someone is diagnosed with dementia every seven seconds worldwide. One in eight people will develop Alzheimer’s disease by the time they reach 65; by age 85, one in two – that’s 50% – will have developed it. With 10,000 baby boomers turning 65 each day in 2011, the number of Alzheimer’s patients could triple in the next 40 years. That represents a tidal wave of tsunami proportions! Given these dramatic statistics, isn’t it time to understand a missing piece in Alzheimer’s disease? Read More..

What Sparks Disease?

by Maureen

We can send a man to the moon, but we still can’t cure most diseases. We put poisons in our bodies to attempt to get rid of cancer. We take medication that interrupts our bodies’ natural chemistry. We allow our organs to be cut from our bodies, causing other organs to work harder. But where has this path led? Read More..
