Have you ever noticed that your child becomes unwell during times of major changes, trauma and emotional stress? Maybe they’ve just started nursery, a new sibling has arrived or they’ve got a test coming up. Perhaps there’s an unwelcome visitor who creates feelings of awkwardness and judgement or an appointment coming up such as the dentist.
Disease has many triggers: poor nutrition, environmental allergens, lack of exercise and toxin overload; the real root cause to why the disease has manifested in a particular way may lie far deeper in the troubled mind.
Shamans and ancient healers have long believed that all dis-ease originates from disturbances in the mind/ psyche and they treat their patients through techniques such as chanting and invocations to access and ‘release’ the negative energies causing disruption.
Humans are energetical beings affected by everything around them that has its own energy field, even that which we cannot see or touch; whether it be mobile phone radiation or a domineering person exerting their forces of control.
Have you ever notice how some people uplift you and others make you feel drained and depleted? This is due to how our energy fields interact with others, some build your energy higher whilst others deplete it. If it becomes too depleted, disease will manifest in the body. As children are under the guidance and control of the adults surrounding them, the adults issues will have a direct affect on their well-being whether we accept it or not.
Below I have taken a selection of common childhood imbalances from Louise L. Hay’s book ‘You can heal your life’ and given their mental invitations/thoughts that have helped to manifest that particular illness.

Only you can figure out how best to help your child once you have identified their emotional imbalances. The most important remedy is nearly always to bring back a sense of security and love in to the child’s life. Allow them to talk with someone who will act as a sound board rather than offering solutions and judgements on the issues.Make them feel loved, giving them quality time and showing affection through physical affection, no matter what their age.
Sometimes a bit of TLC along with offloading their emotional baggage in a safe space is all kids need in order to feel heard and understood and begin to heal.
