In this video, I talk about why “not feeling safe” is a big issue in auto-immune disease. And why you will likely not experience full healing until you address the trauma and wounds in the very cells of your body and release them.

I also outline how the body IS the subconscious and offer a roadmap for healing the emotional and spiritual components of illness.

AFTER you’ve watched the video, read this article for a fascinating account of what this kind of mind/body healing looks like in action – with a real person.

Enjoy! And post any questions below…

The Emotional Roots of Dis-Ease

15 thoughts on “The Emotional Roots of Dis-Ease

  • Hi jini,
    Great video with alot of topics covered in a short amount of time.
    I have bought both your listen to your gut and ibd remission diet book and have been working towards many of your protocols since I was diagnosed with ulcerative collitis in march
    I am writing as I am in hospital at the moment with a flare and it is being treated with IV steriods which seem to be helping. The lower adomen pain started on tuesday when I tried deadlifting too much weight. I suffered for two days and came into hospital for a scan and have been in since. I am using this time to plan the best natural way to heal as soon as I am let out.
    I have started the raw milk diet in a fashion as I am still in hospital with limited supplies and have been informed by the producer that they are now feeding their cows the spring silage througout the winter. Will this still have enough nutrients in it to be sufficient when mixed with b vitamins, bananas, vitamin c and coconut oil and probiotics.
    Also since being administered to hospital my father has decided to help fund some holistic supplements from your shop, do you have a gift option anywhere as currently when the tax and customs duty from the uk border is adding on roughly 30% onto the total after I have received the goods.
    Any help is much appriciated.

    Kind regards, James Cook

    1. Hi James,

      I’m afraid that we’re unable to mark any items on our orders as gifts because we could get into trouble with customs if we did. However, if you find that you will need our Absorb Plus product, UK customs only allows two kilograms of whey protein powder per order but you can obtain an import license which allows you to order more at once and spread the shipping charges across more items. For more details, check out this blog post:

  • Thank you Jini for making direct link of trauma to autoimmune. After 28 years of being on spiritual path, I finally realized I have to deal with developmental trauma to heal asthmas and the angst of not feeling safe with the body, Later in life when my mother was dying, the stress of supporting my mother created some gut issues which flare up when I feel stressed. So I know that direct link between body & emotion/mind. I’ve seen the “best” in alternative healing – naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncture, Ayurveda etc. I was just thinking today that the piece I need for my healing is this feeling safe piece that you speak of. In the last 6 months in dealing with early trauma, besides cranial sacral, I”m also doing Somatic Experiencing therapy, body centered work developed by Dr. Peter Levine. I’ve also found interesting the work of Dr. Bessel van der Kolk ( & Dr. Robert Scaer, author of The Body Bears the Burden in which he locates dis-eases in different parts of the nervous system. Asthmas for example is controlled in dorsal vagus in the upper medulla. Thank you for your message!

    1. The amazing thing about food allergies is that even severe allergies have been completely cleared using EFT (emotional freedom techniques) and homeopathic treatment. However, I also know that wheat growers have really screwed with wheat here in North America to artificially raise gluten levels, etc. Many people who cannot touch gluten here can eat bread and pasta in Europe with no issues whatsoever. So… I think each person would have to do their own work, identify root issues, and listen to their own body wisdom.

  • Thank you for this very concise and informative video. As always, you keep us informed on what’s happening in the world of health, in mind, in body and in spirit. I appreciate your constant searching! Absorb Plus helped me get off medication several years ago for ulcerative colitis. I’m so glad I found you!

  • I have been reading lots of info on the body and truama by Ruth M. Buczynski, PhD New ways of dealing with trauma developed over the last year that you may like to check out.
    I know from personal experience that the body is the repository of trauma and personal history – I have used EFT, Shen Therapy and cranial sacral, reiki, massage. Ancestral DNA is also a factor to be considered I have found, so I am still working on the body after all these years (around twenty)

  • I have just watched your video and omg what a can of worms you have brought to my attention. I am going to make time to delve into these emotional components as by and large i am able to control my Crohns symptoms with your help over the past 10 years.

  • Mary – I’d also like to know if you have a specific video or article with information from Ruth Buczinski. I think it would be a great resource for even more healing, in addition to Jini’s video! Wonderful information! I think a lot of people forget that, to achieve true, deep – and ultimately, permanent – healing, you have to take a multifaceted approach. Addressing not only the physical, but also the mental, emotional, and spiritual sides of healing is crucial.

  • I was wondering about making the basic elemental shakes and if you should be adding in C0Q10, Pycnogenol and Bioflavonoids like you do when you are taking absorb plus. I have not started the protocol yet as I am still gathering information and products so I do things right.

    1. Hi Amy,

      Jini does recommend supplementing with those three things while on an elemental diet, in general. They are not included in the basic vegan kit because it contains what she considers the bare essentials and she wanted to offer a more affordable, less comprehensive version. If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a document with instructions about how to make an elemental shake:

  • Jini,

    I would love to purchase your book. I have Crohns, Psoriatic Arthritis and a host of other auto immune issues. I’m trying to work on the emotional side if this as well with Reiki. How do I connect with you? Thanks so much for any help!
