Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

CFS or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a condition that withdraws all energy from the body’s resources.

Someone that suffers with CFS generally has to pace every aspect of their lives, from getting dressed to a simple walk to the local shops. Many people are also bed ridden with the effects of complete exhaustion that CFS brings to a sufferer’s life on a daily basis.

CFS is nature’s way of stopping us going any further in a direction that we consciously really don’t want to go in life for example feeling helplessness towards one’s own future, or being prevented from following our own natural path against our will. We often make the decision ourselves to deviate from our life’s path to support others that are closest to us and it is sometimes these scenarios that cause us to feel our lives are going nowhere. The brain’s natural response to this emotion is to cease supplying the body with any more energy, leaving a person with the condition diagnosed as CFS or sometimes ME.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJd)

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder is the displacement or inflammation of the temporomandibular joint. The symptoms include lock jaw, clicking and uneven jaw movement, immense pain and swelling. The tension in the masseter muscles across the temporomandibular joint puts immense force on the joint and the pressure can eventually force out the cartilage from its natural position.

This condition is a self devaluation conflict which is hanging. The main culprit is the masseter muscle which is used to control the jaw movement when we eat and speak.

TMJd starts with a shocking moment in a situation where the person is unable to express themselves vocally for whatever reason. Depending on which side of the jaw is affected, location can help decipher if it is a mother or child related conflict or a person someone acknowledges as a partner like a father, husband, best friend. There will be a degree of stress and worry involved around the subject matter.

TMJd is referred to as a hanging conflict which means a situation may be partly resolved but still causing issues in our daily lives. The brain interprets a problem with being unable to open the jaw properly to speak and in response it strengthens the masseter muscle to re-enable control of the jaw.

Simply by recalling the precise moment the conflict shock occurred, along with the recollection of the nature of the shock may be all it takes to be relieved from the tension and the TMJd related pain instantly. In my opinion, it so far appears that splints, dental work or operations will have very little benefit to the overall nature of the condition.

I speak from first hand experience when it comes to Fibromyalgia/CFS/ME

This is a condition with lots of stigma attached, it is an invisible illness in the eyes of others, but for anyone who has to endure the effects of this condition on a daily basis its far from invisible!

Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis ) are often commonly associated and sometimes confused due to a poor standard of diagnosis for these conditions.

As a therapist I look at each symptom as an individual conflict. Focusing on Fibromyalgia which is mostly a complaint of numerous sites of long residing pain, I would like to help explain how to overcome this condition as simply as I can.

When all possible causes for pain have been ruled out, and the pain appears to radiate from the muscles and the tendons for more than 6 weeks we should then look to a possibility of there being a hanging healing is those areas of pain. The locations of the pain gives a GNM therapist a clear indication as to the likely underlying cause.

Whenever the bones, tendons or muscles are involved we look to a conflict of self devaluation, by self devaluation it is meant by being in a conscious state where we tell ourselves we can’t do something, so the self devaluation terms in this aspect are based solely on ourselves when we are faced with a task or a situation that continuously puts stress onto us.

For example;

With the feeling of “I can’t support my family” and an active conflict in place, on resolution to a self devaluation conflict of I cant support my family there would be great pain in the supportive back muscles of the lumbar area. A resolution could be a pending pay rise at work, but if it doesn’t arrive in time this could then become a worry and cause us concern regarding supporting the family and make the conflict hang not fully resolved. If the conflict is hanging in the healing phase then there will also be the sensation of the pain associated with the healing but on an ongoing basis.

It should be noted that the situations that cause worry are triggered by a shocking event in our lives, from the moment of that shock the worry begins to become the main focus of the mind.

Realising that the pain should only be present in a healing phase, it should make it easier to realise the emotions and worries that are keeping the pain present. At this point as a therapist I would be asking questions very specific to the locations of the pains and relating them to specific actions a person makes during their day.
