Rebecca LeeMy Body and blood disorder

I grew up not understanding why I am always having fainting spells during assembly and piano classes. I took it as normal and accepted my condition. When I was pregnant with my children, I discovered I had low blood count and after tests found out that I am Thalassemia Minor. Thalassemia is in the medical sciences called an inherited blood disorder in which the body makes an abnormal form of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anaemia. Anaemia is a condition in which your body doesn’t have enough normal, healthy red blood cells. This explains why I have the fainting spells, have shallow breathing and even a hunch on my right side of my back.

It was only after I met Prof Franz Ruppert’s works, that I looked at the root source of my trauma. I needed to have Thalassemia to save my parents from their constant fighting with each other. I experienced an amazing psychosomatic change on my hunch on my right when I realised that I was carrying my mother’s stress.

Often this is also the case with my clients, who have all sorts of creative ways to save their parents, being sick all the time to distract the parents from their own stress. As a mother, I finally understood how I unconsciously put stress on my children by playing the victim role.
