The Holistic Connection Between Anger and Your Liver

Question on healing hepatitis C:
(personal details removed to protect identity) I apparently contracted Hepatitis C after an emergency surgery. I was given a blood transfusion.
I have had very low, ill, anxious, and depressed years in my life and did not know what was wrong with me until I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Since that time, I have been on a mission to heal myself from this disease.
Upon diagnosis, I divorced my husband of many years. I felt that the negativity, cruelty, and abuse from him had to stop before I could get well. Do you think you could help me cure this disease and become a whole, healthy person again?
Healing Facilitation Response:
My experience has taught me that our physical bodies are a very accurate geiger counter for how well we are living our lives. It is a tribute to your self-awareness that you heeded the wake-up call of the illness and took the action necessary to remove yourself from abuse.
You are so right to discern that a poisonous relationship was a factor. We store anger in the liver. A lot of times, without even knowing it, we even store the anger of our abuser there, in addition to our own anger at the abuse.
Since I treat myself holistically, it is the only approach I can share but it is your responsibility, ultimately, to make sure you take a safe course for your own healing, according to its current state of strength. I know milk thistle is good for the liver but can be too harsh if there is too much damage or the liver is in too weakened a state.
On a spiritual level, cleansing residual anger is vital. You may feel you have done this already but having just gone thru a devastating break-up myself, I know that the levels of pain go deeper than we consciously discern and that it may take deeper and deeper healings to reach the level the liver would respond to in a transformative way that would include releasing of old traumas.
I would suggest healing work as often as you can get it: Reiki, Reflexology, massage, and other healing work. I truly feel that releasing stored anger and resentment about the abuse you have endured can do as much to help your liver fight hepatitis C as any medication or health supplement.
In addition to myself, call in all healers and workers connected to your soul group and ask them to work with you during dreamtime. Dream Guidance and Spiritual Interpretation provide some of the most powerful healing potential you can ever receive.
I used an essential oil blend called “Release” which is put out by Young Living Oils. This essential oil blend contains oils known to have the healing properties of releasing anger from the liver cells.
I have a friend who is a distributor for the company. Let me know if you want her contact information. Otherwise, you can google Young Living and find a distributor easily.
The Center for Disease Control has some good info on Hepatitis C on their website: Information about Viral Hepatitis C. The page starts with how you access your risk of contracting Hepatitis C, but if you look over the left, there is a lot more information about it in the links there.
And finally, in coordination and cooperation with your doctor, I would suggest looking into natural health formulas for supporting healing of the liver. Dr. Christopher, known as the father of herbology, has a cleansing and toning formula for liver health.
