Maris, a patient who’d been coming to see me for years recently said that she’d heard I was a Medical Intuitive but she was confused as I’d been her regular M.D. for years, she trusted me and hadn’t thought I did anything ‘weird’! She’d googled it and Wikipedia was not kind, describing a Medical Intuitive as, ‘an alternative medicine practitioner who claims to use their self-described intuitive abilities to find the cause of a physical or emotional condition through the use of insight rather than modern medicine’.
Of course, Maris knew that I was a highly experienced M.D. Also, I’d only just sent her for an abdominal ultra-sound and ordered some comprehensive tests on her gut microbiome as well as routine drops of blood, so I didn’t seem to fit into this explanation. Maris had previously seen two gastroenterologists regarding her abdominal pains and bloating, but with nothing found, they had suggested that ‘there was nothing wrong with her’. That was hard to take considering her waistline expanded to two skirt sizes bigger from morning to evening, and often she had to stop work to either take Tylenol for pain or get a heating pad to soothe her bloated belly.
I explained that often in cases such as hers, with illnesses that could be vague, have many symptoms and came and went, it was difficult for doctors to know what to say when all their routine lab tests came back negative.
At her initial consultation, as a highly intuitive doctor, I got an immediate impression regarding the possibility that the illness has an emotional, or stress related origin. Doctors are used to believing that back pains, headaches, asthma, or skin disease are all worsened by emotional factors, but in fact, as a Medical Intuitive, I know that almost any ailment is going to be exacerbated or even caused by negative emotions.
I spend some time going back to the origins of Maris’s health issues. It turned out that her digestive disorders had started when she was sent away from home to go to school, aged 14. She’s felt isolated and different at school, not as beautiful or smart as the other girls. It was during the first year she began to notice the belly bloat.
Now, this pattern was ingrained, somatizing (stuffing down into the physical) stress and negative feelings about herself into a part of her body became a way of dealing with her emotions. When any person, situation, or casual remark reminded her of this difficult time in her life, it was felt as physical pain by that more sensitive of organs, the gut. Literally, Maris was ‘sick to her stomach’. To her, the teenage school years had been a trauma that she was holding onto.
The origins of Maris’s symptoms get buried in time and forgotten until she was reminded and guided back. As is common, remembering this original association is enough to start the healing process. It’s as though by shedding light on the ‘trauma’ years back, there’s a cathartic reaction.
How does the ‘Medical Intuition’ work? Several factors are involved, however, firstly there is a conversation taking place below the radar of language and words. In the same way that we can feel if our friend is angry, even before they speak, or perhaps depressed, subconsciously we ‘feel the vibes’ with everyone we meet. We instantly know whether a person is to be trusted, and a friend. Or not. This is an everyday intuition, however, to make this process conscious is the secret to being a really good medical intuitive. After all, intuition is a gift to everyone, however like any skill it can be improved upon by practice and specific exercises. One thing for sure – as a doctor, I know it leads to quicker diagnoses and choosing the correct tests first. It does not mean cutting corners, as due diligence is essential to the Medical Profession and our patients trust us to be thorough. In the next installments, I’ll talk more about the biophysics and neurophysiology of becoming a medical Intuitive, as well as more patient examples.
