The Roots of the Psychosomatic Delusion

(Versiune in romana sub textul in engleza)

EN:
Reading through the history of psychosomatic theory and how it has taken roots in medicine, in Maya Dusenbery’s book “Doing Harm: The Truth about How Bad Medicine and Lazy Science Leave Women Dusmissed, Misdiagnosed and Sick”.

Apart from maintaining the current lies promoted by the modern feminism (such as the idea of a gender pay gap) and the victimizing ideology, the book does offer a pretty good account of historical facts.

Long before reading the excerpts below, I realized just by looking at the statistics of chronic illness and psychosomatic diagnostics, that the way males came up with the psychosomatic theory must have been strongly correlated with the view that the mind of a female is absolutely inferior to the mind of a male. What we currently know as “psychosomatic” has its roots in the idea of the “hysterical” woman who cannot control her mind/emotions and thus suffers for it. Hysteria became conversion disorder, then most recently, “functional neurological disorder”. The word “functional” says it all – the body cannot function because of an impaired functioning of the mind.

Check this out – from Harvard Health Publishing: Conversion Disorder (Functional Neurological Symptom Disorder). “The symptoms of this disorder often involve muscle control. But there is usually no abnormality in the motor systems in the brain or other nerves throughout the body. ” —> That’s because when the abnormality is at the genetic level, it takes a genetic test to identify the cause. I believe NONE of those with such “diagnosis” have ever underwent genetic testing for mitochondrial myopathies or for metabolic myopathies.
“Conversion disorder is more common in women than in men. It occurs most frequently between adolescence and middle age. Although relatively rare in the general population, conversion symptoms may be found in up to 14% of patients in general hospitals. In some reviews, they accounted for about 30% of symptoms among neurology outpatients.” —> Conversion disorder is diagnosed more often in women because of the psychosomatic delusion that is promoted as scientific, rational thinking. 70-80% of people with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome or chronic Lyme disease unresponsive to treatment are females. The rest of that percentage is filled by males who are thought to be feminized, or exhibiting a “weak” mind.

What ARE the facts?
It’s straightforward simple. A “man” decided that all of the puzzling ailments women were known to experience and that were defined as “hysteria”/weak nervous system, were actually the result of the weak mind that females exhibit. Period. No research, no elimination of all other possible physical explanations. No taking into account that medical science and knowledge about the human body was very limited. A deeply illogical approach of the unknown.

The name of that male (he doesn’t deserve to be called “man”) is Sigmund Freud.

I will quote from the book now:

“It’s within this context that the final phase in hysteria’s history occurred.

In the late 1800s, Sigmund Freud abandoned the neurological theory of hysteria in favor of a psychological one. In his famous case studies of hysterical women, he argued that psychological conflict—or “strangulated affect”—was “converted” into physical symptoms.

Describing this process as “the puzzling leap from the mental to the physical,” he left it to others to fill in how it actually worked.

Initially, Freud suggested that hysteria arose when traumatic memories—usually of sexual abuse—that had been repressed deep into “the unconscious” found expression in the body in a symbolic manner.

Later, backing off from the implications of that assertion, he decided that it wasn’t actual sexual abuse—just fantasies of it—that converted into hysterical symptoms.

The symptoms would disappear, he believed, if the patient consciously recalled the psychological distress, through a technique of “free association” of his invention: psychoanalysis.

As historian Carroll Smith-Rosenberg puts it, psychoanalysis is “the child of the hysterical woman.”

The result?

“As Ehrenreich and English write, “Under Freud’s influence, the scalpel for the dissection of female nature eventually passed from the gynecologist to the psychiatrist.” And medicine’s view of women “shifted from ‘physically sick’ to ‘mentally ill.’” The psychologization of hysteria, arriving just as medicine increasingly defined “real” diseases as those it could see with its current technologies and explain by a known physiological mechanism, introduced the idea that any symptoms it couldn’t yet see and explain—particularly those that occurred in women—could be blamed on the unknowable “unconscious mind,” a theory that medicine has liberally utilized whenever it comes up against the limits of its knowledge. It has led to the persistent distrust of women’s subjective reports of their own bodies—until those reports are backed up by objective evidence.”

The story of my life. My sexual organs makes males see me as a sort of cognitively challenged creature, something less than an animal.
Why do I say “less than an animal”?
Let’s take the example of a cheetah. When chasing a prey, the cheetah’s body can handle the speedy chase only for a limited amount of time. If it cannot catch the prey in a certain amount of time, the cheetah will give up the chase. Living without food for another day or two is a better choice than risking the long term effects of going beyond the limits of its body.

So we don’t think that the cheetah is a lazy creature, who doesn’t like to go beyond its physical limits. We don’t think the cheetah’s mind lacks in perspective, in motivation, and so on – all the things males think that they see in females.
We accept that the mind-body unit that the cheetah is, knows exactly what to do and when to stop a physically demanding activity.

I think females should be seen at least as intelligent as an animal, when it comes to knowing the limits of their bodies and that they know when they are really, physically sick. Just like an animal knows when it’s sick.

Citind istoria teoriei psihosomatice și modul în care aceasta a prins rădăcini în medicină, în cartea Mayei Dusenbery “Doing Harm: Adevărul despre cum medicina proastă și știința leneșă le lasă pe femei ignorate, diagnosticate greșit și bolnave”.

În afară de menținerea minciunilor actuale promovate de feminismul modern (cum ar fi ideea unei diferențe salariale între femei și bărbați) și a ideologiei victimizante si altele din aceeasi categorie, cartea oferă o relatare destul de bună a faptelor istorice.

Cu mult timp înainte de a citi extrasele de mai jos, mi-am dat seama, doar uitându-mă la statisticile privind bolile cronice și diagnosticele psihosomatice, că modul în care bărbații au ajuns la teoria psihosomatică trebuie să fi fost puternic corelat cu ideea că mintea unei femei este absolut inferioară celei a unui bărbat. Ceea ce cunoaștem în prezent sub denumirea de “psihosomatică” își are rădăcinile în ideea femeii “isterice” care nu-și poate controla mintea/emoțiile și, prin urmare, suferă din această cauză. Isteria a devenit tulburare de conversie, apoi, cel mai recent, “tulburare neurologică funcțională”. Cuvântul “funcțional” spune totul – corpul nu poate funcționa din cauza unei funcționări deficitare a minții.

Vezi asta – de la Harvard Health Publishing: Tulburarea de conversie (tulburare neurologică funcțională a simptomelor). “Simptomele acestei tulburări implică adesea controlul muscular. Dar, de obicei, nu există nicio anomalie la nivelul sistemelor motorii din creier sau al altor nervi din tot corpul. ” —> Asta pentru că atunci când anomalia este la nivel genetic, este nevoie de un test genetic pentru a identifica cauza. Cred că NICIUNUL dintre cei cu un astfel de “diagnostic” nu a fost supus vreodată unui test genetic pentru miopatii mitocondriale sau pentru miopatii metabolice.
“Tulburarea de conversie este mai frecventă la femei decât la bărbați. Ea apare cel mai frecvent între adolescență și vârsta mijlocie. Deși este relativ rară în populația generală, simptomele de conversie pot fi întâlnite la până la 14% dintre pacienții din spitalele generale. În unele revizuiri, acestea au reprezentat aproximativ 30% din simptomele din rândul pacienților din ambulatoriul de neurologie.” —> Tulburarea de conversie este diagnosticată mai des la femei din cauza iluziei psihosomatice care este promovată drept gândire științifică, rațională. 70-80% dintre persoanele cu fibromialgie, sindrom de oboseală cronică sau boala Lyme cronică care nu răspunde la tratament sunt femei. Restul acestui procent este completat de bărbați despre care se crede că sunt feminizați sau că prezintă o minte “slabă”.

Care sunt faptele?
Este simplu și direct. Un “om” a decis că toate afecțiunile derutante de care se știa că suferă femeile și care au fost definite drept “isterie”/sistem nervos slab, sunt de fapt rezultatul minții slabe de care dau dovadă femeile. Punct. Fără cercetări, fără eliminarea tuturor celorlalte explicații fizice posibile. Fără să se țină cont de faptul că știința medicală și cunoștințele despre corpul uman erau foarte limitate. O abordare profund ilogică a necunoscutului.

Numele acelui mascul (nu merită să fie numit “bărbat”) este Sigmund Freud.

Voi cita acum din carte:

“În acest context a avut loc faza finală din istoria isteriei.

La sfârșitul anilor 1800, Sigmund Freud a abandonat teoria neurologică a isteriei în favoarea uneia psihologice. În celebrele sale studii de caz ale femeilor isterice, el a susținut că conflictul psihologic – sau “afecțiunea strangulată” – era “convertit” în simptome fizice.

Descriind acest proces ca fiind “saltul enigmatic de la mental la fizic”, el a lăsat altora sarcina de a explica cum funcționează de fapt.

Inițial, Freud a sugerat că isteria apare atunci când amintirile traumatice – de obicei de abuz sexual – care fuseseră reprimate adânc în “inconștient” și-au găsit expresia în corp într-o manieră simbolică.

Mai târziu, dând înapoi de la implicațiile acestei afirmații, el a decis că nu abuzul sexual real – ci doar fanteziile cu acesta – se transformau în simptome isterice.

Simptomele ar dispărea, credea el, dacă pacientul și-ar reaminti în mod conștient suferința psihologică, printr-o tehnică de “asociere liberă” inventată de el: psihanaliza.

După cum spune istoricul Carroll Smith-Rosenberg, psihanaliza este “copilul femeii isterice”.

Rezultatul?

“După cum scriu Ehrenreich și English, “sub influența lui Freud, bisturiul pentru disecția naturii feminine a trecut în cele din urmă de la ginecolog la psihiatru”.” Iar viziunea medicinii asupra femeilor “s-a schimbat de la “bolnavă fizic” la “bolnavă mental”.” Psihologizarea isteriei, sosită în momentul în care medicina definea din ce în ce mai mult bolile “adevărate” ca fiind cele pe care le putea vedea cu tehnologiile sale actuale și le putea explica printr-un mecanism fiziologic cunoscut, a introdus ideea că orice simptome pe care nu le putea încă vedea și explica – în special cele care apăreau la femei – puteau fi puse pe seama “minții inconștiente”, o teorie pe care medicina a folosit-o cu generozitate ori de câte ori s-a lovit de limitele cunoștințelor sale. Aceasta a dus la neîncrederea persistentă în rapoartele subiective ale femeilor cu privire la propriul corp – până când aceste rapoarte sunt susținute de dovezi obiective.”

Povestea vieții mele. Organele mele sexuale îi fac pe masculi să mă vadă ca pe un fel de creatură cu probleme cognitive, ca pe “ceva” inferior unui animal.
De ce spun “mai puțin decât un animal”?
Să luăm exemplul unui ghepard. Atunci când urmărește o pradă, corpul ghepardului poate face față urmăririi în viteză doar pentru o perioadă limitată de timp. Dacă nu poate prinde prada într-un anumit interval de timp, ghepardul va renunța la urmărire. A trăi fără hrană pentru încă o zi sau două este o alegere mai bună decât să riște efectele pe termen lung ale depășirii limitelor corpului său.

Așadar, nu credem că ghepardul este o creatură leneșă, căreia nu îi place să își depășească limitele fizice. Nu credem că mintea ghepardului este lipsită de perspectivă, de motivație și așa mai departe – toate lucrurile pe care masculii cred că le văd la femele.
Acceptăm că unitatea minte-corp care este ghepardul știe exact ce să facă și când să se oprească dintr-o activitate solicitantă din punct de vedere fizic.

Cred că femelele ar trebui să fie considerate cel puțin la fel de inteligente ca un animal, atunci când vine vorba de cunoașterea limitelor corpului lor și că știu când sunt cu adevărat, fizic, bolnave. La fel cum un animal știe când este bolnav.

The Issue with Plants: What Are Oxalates?

The reason behind this series (which I will expand in a different post): most of my health issues in the last 2 years haven’t stemmed from an active Lyme infection, but an overburden of toxins in my body. Toxins from die-off and the oxalate from the high-oxalate plant Japanese knotweed, which I took as powder, not as an extract. Oxalate accumulation in the body (I have eaten plants my entire life and mostly the high oxalate wheat which contains gluten, which in turn causes leaky gut, which results in a higher, unrestricted absorbtion of oxalates and impaired detox) is a real thing and I would bet anything that this is the reason why people who consume meat and animal products are healthier – as long as it’s not about processed foods/meats, just pastured raised animals and animal products.

I’ll be using information and references gathered from people who have thoroughly studied this plant problem.

What is the problem with plants? They’re good to eat and they’re good for us, or so we have been thought. But we didn’t know, as a species, that plants have their own way to protect themselves from predators. They secrete many compounds that are simply toxic to those who eat them, or who eat them in really great quantities. One of those compounds is called oxalate.

What causes: impaired detox because it uses the same receptor that sulfur uses in the body ( ther is NO detox without sulfur), mineral and vitamin depletion, stones in organs, calcification etc.


Please watch the video below from Elliot Overton CFMP, DipCNM , in which he goes in depth to explain the basics about oxalates and their interaction within the human bodies. You can also see their spiky form in a few photos. The video has auto generated subtitle captions.

New Potential Diagnostic Tool for Chronic Lyme

The research was done by Kim Lewis, University Distinguished Professor of biology and director of the Antimicrobial Discovery Center at Northeastern.

Most of our immune system resides in our intestines. It’s the microbiome. Poor microbiome, poor immune system. There’s no way to workaround that.

“In general, the gut is a good indicator of our overall health. The microorganisms that live in our intestines strongly influence our immune system, and in some cases, our microbiomes are even superior to our genetics at predicting diseases. “

“To control for this, Lewis used samples from ICU patients, who were taking antibiotics at the time, and found that they did not experience the same microbial changes as PTLDS patients, suggesting it’s unlikely that antibiotics alone are responsible for the differences.

Beyond providing the medical community with a potential diagnostic tool, Lewis says these findings could also lead to new treatments if, as the study suggests, these changes in the microbiome cause symptoms of the disease. 

“If we can fix the microbiome, then we could perhaps find an intervention for PTLDS,” Lewis says.”

  

Belgian Documentary on Lyme (in French)

A new documentary is out on the topic of Chronic Lyme, pitiful testing options and the usual things people with lyme must face in this (global) society.

The way it started in Lyme, CT, USA, at the time where there was military research on how to weaponize ticks into biological weapons and where suddenly a lot of young people fell ill with various unspecified symptoms. (More on this here.)

Metronidazole toxicity

I started taking metronidazole again during the last few days because of infection(s) flare-up in the last 1-2 months.

Today, after about 1 hour after taking my morning dose, I started feeling constant anxiety symptoms – mostly physical, but also struggling hard to contain the mental anxiety. Just like that, out of the blue. Also, restlessness. Impossible to do pranayama breathing exercises. Inability to focus. The worst anxiety feeling I have ever experienced, simply because I couldn’t turn it off!

This was different than what I usually have with die-off reactions. Normal die-off is feeling pressure on the left side of my chest, dificulty breathing, nausea, fatigue. So I looked up on Ggle “metronidazole side effects”.

This website pops-up and I recognized the psychiatric issue as being typical to metronidazole toxicity in the brain.

A quote:

“In June of 2015, I was diagnosed with c diff (a gut bacteria), and prescribed metronidazole, 500mg.  Six days into taking it, I had a serious, adverse reaction, including difficulty walking, slurred speech, dizziness, extreme fatigue and feeling faint.  What followed was six weeks of debilitating fatigue, brain fog, depression, severe insomnia, muscle twitches, nausea, zero appetite, coughing, difficulty swallowing, shortness of breath, brain zaps (feels like lightning bolts surging through my skull), flushing face, chills, hand tremors, neck pain, and the absolute worst anxiety I’ve ever experienced (sound familiar?).”

Here Are the Facts

June 28, 2020

4.5 hours of sleep (midnight onset, too hot in the house)

now:

blurred vision
pins and needles, heaviness, decreased sensation in my legs
ringing in my right ear
tense muscles on the right side of my head
tense muscle of my eye
burning pain in random areas of my legs, but predominantly on the right side
neuropathic pain in my feet and hands
burning pain in the upper part of my thoracic spine
feeling nauseated


Cure Endometriosis Naturally

Because it is right now one of the most important things that affect my health. It causes chronic constipation, cramps, pain and chronic inflammation in my intestines. The adhesions found on my intestine or on my uterus they are all the result of ongoing inflammatory processes. This is what I understood by reading a few articles on what lesions, adhesions and scare tissue are and how are they formed. I believe that there is a way to cure endometriosis naturally – or at least keeping it under control.

It makes sense that my medical doctor said that my IBS (irritable bowel symptoms) actually shows an IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) component. She said that only because the treatment she gave me didn’t work.

Going out and enjoying things is an almost impossible thing because I will have severe cramps at some point and will need to go to a toilet. I HAVE to know the route in advance, where are the possible public toilets by using the app Flush, I have to know if there are cafes/restaurants where I can ask to use their toilet. Finding myself with severe cramps, extreme nausea and with the imminent threat of my bowels emptying in the middle of the road is one of the most nightmarish things that I can live during an innocent walk on the streets around my home. It’s not your typical “I need to empty my bowels” sensation, which you can control for some time. It’s my body going out of control. Whenever there are cramps and my bowels move around the area of my uterus/ovaries, it’s like things are being ripped apart – not by knife, but by two hands ripping apart a shirt/cloth. It’s enough to make me simply not wanting to go out anymore.

So, I decided to look into the issues of IBS, IBD, SIBO, Endometriosis and dirupted gut flora. I realized that in order to heal my intestines, I first need to address the adhesions/scar tissue, because constipation/altered transit and endometriosis go hand in hand. I simply cannot go through a surgery and recover at this point, not even if it were to save my life. Which is why I cannot even begin to consider surgical removal of scar tissue from endometriosis. Not to even mention that every surgery will produce more scar tissue and so on and so on, and the cycle will never end. So I looked into non-surgical options. Seems there is actually a way to cure endometriosis naturally, even though no allopathic doctor will ever tell you that.

The best resources I found were these articles:

Nattokinase and Serrapeptase for dissolving scar tissue

These two proteolytic enzymes (dissolving proteins) are dissolving the scar tissue naturally and prevent the formation of new scar tissue. These systemic enzymes also help reduce inflammation – thus, you can expect a reduction in endometriosis pain.

I am inclined to believe it because, when I ate Natto for the first time (the Japanese food from which nattokinase is extracted), I wanted to keep eating it. My body knew it needed it. That despite the tottaly unappetizing look and smell of natto – the most disgusting thing I ever put in my mouth, by the look and smell of it. But the taste was divine for me. The price and tedious is what kept me from consuming only natto every day for every meal when I was in Asia.

Serrapeptase is the ezyme that silkworms use in order to break free of their cocoon. It is produced by a bacteria found in their gut. If it breaks a cocoon, it can break scar tissue too.

And the results seen by the person who wrote the article are confirming it. So I will start this supplements in order to deal with pain and adhesions and constipation.

The most important article to read for anyone dealing with endometriosis is this one:

Natural Endometriosis Treatment – it explains the causes and how to be free of this disease by doing very simple things. The article explains a lot of the scientific stuff that goes into various types of estrogen, progesterone/estrogen receptors and their interactions in the presence of xenoestrogens.

It’s about avoiding xenoestrogens or estrogen-mimicking things that can get on your skin – anything that has a fragrance, be it synthetic or natural (essential oils, for example). It is the main reason why nowadays you see so many women dealing with endometriosis or just awfully painful menstruation.

I can totally do this. Although it’s sad that I have to say goodbye to my extensive essential oils collection – even lavender essential oil is an estrogen-mimicking agent. I just also bought some expensive shampoo with tea tree oil that helps my scalp and has no synthetic fragrances.

I will come back in thre months to report on my symptoms and the evolution of my treatment.

The Weird Dreams Page

May 4, 2020

I was heading straight to this dark deep ocean, like a swimmer who raises his hands above his head, clasps them together and throws himself straight in the water.

This ocean was as big as a half a planet and a big sandy stretch of beach was the other half of this planet. At the moment of impact and immediately after being submerged, I would leave my me-girl body and become a huge, black dragon, ready to go on certain missions on another world. Me-dragon would then hold my teenage-girl asleep body, which was pretty much like my real world body – thin, adolescent like female body – with straight hair and a beautiful crown of lights around/inside its head.

Me-dragon loved its teenage-girl other form of self and held it in its big wings/arms while they were sinking to the bottom of the ocean, where the me-girl had to rest until the me-dragon finished its fighting missions God knows where.

During the trip down I remember the me-dragon being filled with the deepest love and adoration toward the me-girl, holding it (?) gently and marvelling at its suspended round lights, in different colours, suspended inside the me-girl’s head.
