Cystitis is a common and painful illness that affects 1 in 5 women at some point in their lives - as well as a smaller percentage of men and children. It is often said to be linked to bacterial infection, yet interestingly, this isn't always the case. If there is no bacterial infection, and we can't put it down to 'honeymoon cystitis' or tight underwear, we're left wondering, what's the cause? And when bacteria are found, is this just the body's mistake, or could there be a meaning?
If you've ever explored the mind-body connection, you'll be aware that our thoughts and emotions affect our physiology. When we get stressed, we experience physical symptoms, such as headaches, tension or constipation. META-Health takes this understanding to the next level: it explains which stressful emotions cause which illnesses - including cystitis and other urinary tract infections.
META-Health goes beyond mind-body understanding: it's a bio-psycho-social model, explaining the interconnection between our thoughts and emotions, physiology, brain, spirit and behaviour within a social environment.
It shows how illness is never a mistake - there's always an emotional and bio-logical meaning behind any health issue.
By uncovering the root cause, we discover what we need to do to overcome the issue.
