What Causes Narcolepsy – A Natural Theory

I picked up Louise Hay’s book, Heal Your Body: The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Metaphysical Way to Overcome Them. I wasn’t thinking about what causes narcolepsy, just about healing in general.

For the most part, I have a good handle on my health. I don’t feel like narcolepsy has much impact on my day-to-day life anymore, and the migraines get better each time I face them and look at the underlying cause.

But I figured looking at one more approach won’t hurt me. This book lists a variety of ailments, suggests an emotional cause, and then gives an affirmation to help you heal the emotions that might be manifesting at the symptom.

Louise Hay’s Message

Mind, Body, Spirit in interwoven circles showing how they all overlap

“For us to become whole and healthy, we must balance the body, mind, and spirit. We need to take good care of our bodies. We need to have a positive mental attitude about ourselves and about life. And we need to have a strong spiritual connection. When these three things are balanced, we rejoice in living. No doctor or health practitioner can give us this unless we choose to take part in our healing process.” – Louise Hay

So, this is new for me in 2020, since I’m just recently realizing the value of spirituality, even if it may not look like anyone else’s. I get to define my own beliefs, and my beliefs create my reality. That is what has made this year so beautiful to me despite the hardships.

Most of this book is a reference, a list of ailments and diagnoses with what causes them, and an affirmation to help heal it.

What Causes Narcolepsy?

Narcolepsy says “Can’t cope. Extreme fear. Wanting to get away from it all. Not wanting to be here.” Is that how I felt when I was three years old and the symptoms started? I don’t remember exactly, but I know I felt that a lot growing up.

What causes narcolepsy symptoms?

Since I like to see narcolepsy as a name that medical professionals gave to a specific group of symptoms, rather than a problem in and of itself, I thought it would be useful to look at all the different symptoms that I attribute to it. I predicted they would all be pretty interwoven, but I was blown away by just how much they all relate.

Anxiety – not trusting the flow and the process of life.
Balance – loss of – Scattered thinking, not centered
Chronic Diseases – a refusal to change. Fear of the future, not feeling safe
Depression – Anger you feel you do not have a right to have. Hopelessness
Fat / overweight – oversensitivity. Often represents fear and shows a need for protection. Fear may be a cover for hidden anger and a resistance to forgive
Fatigue – resistance, bordome, lack of love for what one does
Headaches – invalidating the self. Self-criticism. Fear .
Holding fluids – What are you afraid of losing?
Hypoglycemia – Overwhelmed by the burdens in life. “What’s the use?”
Insanity (Psychiatric Problems) – feeing from the family. Escapism. Withdrawal. Violent separation from life.
Itis/inflammation – anger and frustration about conditions you are looking at in your life.

This is just a bit of my list, but you get the idea. Of course, everyone’s list will be a little different, so I will leave that for you to discover. I want to leave you with this one “ailment” and its affirmation.

Incurable

I grew up believing that what I have cannot be cured. But, Louise Hay has a different approach. She doesn’t take the word “incurable” at face value and accept it as fact.

“Cannot be cured by outer means at this point. We must go within to effect the cure. It came from nowhere and will go back to nowhere. Miracles happen every day.” This felt like a relief to me. I wanted to believe in miracles and I realized that I do believe in them, I just never saw them as possible for me.

She offers this affirmation, which I have been using for about a week now. “I go within to dissolve the pattern that created this, and I now accept a Divine healing. “


description for what causes narcolepsy to be incurable, "The word 'incurable' which is so frightening to so many people, really only means that the particular condition cannot be cured by 'outer' methods and that we must go within to effect the healing." - Louise Hay

In conclusion, I hope you will take a look at your beliefs and see if it would be helpful for you to reconsider what causes narcolepsy. I would love to talk to you about it if you have any questions, or just want to chat about what this means for you. Comment below to connect!

    Hello Kaylam.
    I too have narcolepsy.
    I am very much interested in how you are doing after starting your journey with healing yourself?

  • Grace

    Thanks Kayla for sharing this, I have had a similar healing journey to you it sounds and am now in a really healthy state. It so refreshing to know that others out there are finding alternative solutions too, and important for us to share. I absolutely agree that it begins on the energetic plane.

    Thank you for sharing this Kayla. I have been looking inwardly a lot this last year but mainly focussing on my mental health rather than my body as a whole. Reading this post is a great reminder about why narcolepsy treatment needs to be a holistic approach. I’m going to get this book and learn more about ALL the connections going on inside of me!

  • Thank you for sharing with us! From my perspective, now that I am many years beyond diagnosis and two decades beyond onset, I have come to recognize that my narcoleptic body only “needs to be healed” when forced into certain social constructs that in all honesty very few bodies are naturally built to fit well. The primary construct being the modern work/life balance which our science is showing takes years and years off of our life expectancy and causes major disease.

    If I honor my body and mind, which means paying close attention to them and treating them well in all dimensions, and I live by my rhythms, there is in a large sense no disease. My “symptoms” become enviable features rather than bugs. In fact, shortly after typical onset the narcoleptic relationship to consciousness is naturally facilitated to a state that other people need years of study at monk/nun/yoga schools to achieve.

    Of course all of our circumstances are unique and I respect that what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for another for any number of good reasons. I truly hope to see more of us sharing our experiences every day so that our perspectives can lighten each others’ burdens, so thank you again for sharing.
