Over the past two years, Rosacea has drastically been on the rise. I’ve had more clients reaching out to me about rosacea flare-ups than I ever have before.
When we understand the biological adaptive purpose of rosacea, we can begin to understand why rosacea would be on the rise right now in a society that is so heavily divided. Never before have so many families been as divided as they are today in our current world.
In Germanic Healing Knowledge, Rosacea is caused by a self-esteem conflict that one is not recognized or accepted by their family (blood relatives). When the nose is affected (called rhinophyma), the person feels that they are not, but should be, present at the centre of the family/the action (nose = centre of the face).
The biological purpose of this is that through the reddening of the face, one attracts attention to themselves. On a biological level, their body is trying to show the family that they have the same blood flowing through their veins. This is the body’s adaptive process of wanting to be accepted and/or no longer wanting to feel left out or judged.
Remember, our bodies are ancient and are hard-wired for survival. When we deal with unanticipated stress and events in our lives, the body biologically adapts for the purpose of our survival. This is the case for all skin conditions, diseases and symptoms.
During the conflict active phase, a weakening of the capillary vessels occurs.
The condition becomes chronic when the conflict continues unresolved or is re-triggered.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Where the conditioning that I don’t feel accepted come from?
- Am I really not accepted by the family, or am I only perceiving them situation in this way?
- How can I resolve this situation so that I can heal this aspect of my life for my own sake?
