It was in mid-August that Cathy started getting IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Like many people, she’d experience painful IBS symptoms of chronic constipation and bloating followed by diarrhea.
As a holistic therapist and fan of natural healing, Cathy had tried several approaches to overcoming the issue, including dietary changes and releasing stress around her forthcoming exams. While her symptoms improved, she was unable to stop the IBS recurring. The situation had been going on for almost 10 months when Cathy attended a META-Health Introductory course, and received a startling revelation.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is estimated to affect up to 1 in 5 of us at some point in our lives. It is classified by modern medicine as a functional disorder, because there are no apparent physiological causes. Interestingly, even conventional medicine has acknowledged the link between the onset of IBS and stress, and the fact that IBS often flares up during stressful periods. But until now, the specific cause and meaning of IBS has remained a mystery.
Cathy attended the META-Health course to enhance her health understanding and help her clients. She didn’t realise it was an opportunity to figure out her IBS problem - until sitting at the front as a demo subject! Through META-Health questioning, she discovered the root cause. It all started at a friend’s barbeque, when a text message from a colleague came through to her husband’s phone. Without a second thought, she read it… and got a huge shock as she realised what was going on. They were having an affair. Cathy hid her horror and anger, and got on with the party.
