The Mindset Behind it: Trigeminal Neuralgia and Neuropathy


Our body is closely connected with the mind – whatever is happening in our mind and emotions, it will show sooner or later in the physical. If we experience negative thinking, it affects the body and will manifest as a health or a disease. The body itself has the intelligence to heal and to stay healthy, however every emotion leaves its trace in it. We cannot look only at the body when trying to heal from a condition, we always need to have the thinking patterns and models in mind. 

This approach is known as a holistic approach to health, where the mind and the body are connected so strongly that you cannot simply treat the symptoms and expect the cause of the problem to disappear by itself. Also, our true self or the soul, is something that knows everything and has the power to make us whole again, if we clear the mind from the past harmful patterns. 

 “We call forth disease, or more precisely, dis-ease, when a lack of knowledge throws an area in our lives out of balance. The result of this imbalance first manifests within us as a dis-ease at a psychological level, but unless this is remedied, it will eventually also manifest as a physical disease. “

Of course, dealing with the patterns and models from the past takes time but more importantly, we need to look inside and search for the real cause of the conditions or the symptoms that we experience. For example, let us take trigeminal neuralgia or neuropathy and look for the deeper reasons behind these conditions. 

In the book by Theun Mares, “Health and Holism in the 21st Century”, there are many health conditions and their causes. What does it say about Trigeminal Neuralgia and Neuropathy: 

Trigeminal Nerve Neuralgia

Not wanting to look at or acknowledge an issue that is causing emotional pain

Trigeminal Nerve Neuropathy

Not wanting to look at or acknowledge an issue that is causing emotional pain


Nor being able to accept the received injustices in life

As we can see, there is an emotional pain that is left unacknowledged. We all live in a very dynamic environment and a lot of people experience stress on a daily basis. This stress is an emotional state that is repeated over and over. Very often, it is not only one thing or area that is causing stress. So, the first step is to look closer at the reasons behind the stressful situations. Every healing starts with acceptance and by admitting that there is a problem. 

If you experience Trigeminal Neuralgia or Neuropathy, you probably feel a lot of pain. This pain is often triggered by different things but what are its deeper roots? Be honest with yourself – where is your emotional stress coming from, where is the emotional pain hiding in your life. Face it and tackle it, first by seeing it and then by taking action. The keys that we have about the cause of the condition are two – to look at and to acknowledge the issue that is causing the emotional pain. 

Look at the different areas in your life, how do you feel about them? How is work life or your personal life, is there a situation that is causing resistance and the desire to escape from it. Is there something in your past that you cannot find peace with? Is there a person in your life that you do not see or hear, but you feel inside that you have unfinished business with? How do you feel about your body, is there a negative thinking pattern related to how your body looks? There could be so many different scenarios that can cause an “invisible” emotional pain. 

Using meditation and breathing techniques is a great way to have the silence needed in order to hear the deep needs inside. The knowledge coming from your true self can only be heard when the mind is silenced, when the inner dialogue is stopped. Taking responsibility for your health is also very helpful, by changing your diet, lifestyle and quitting the harsh medications and painkillers.
