Not being able to smell anything is such a shame. It takes away your joy of life. The food you used to find so tasty has no effect on you anymore. Everything tastes the same. You miss the odors from the sidewalk after rain, newly mowed grass, flowers, and smells of baking. Sometimes it has its advantages. It’s a blessing when changing diapers and when cigarettes don’t taste good any more.
Smell as protection
Smell protects you from illness and danger. It ensures that you realize in time that your food has rotted. Or that you realize that your bowel movement smells stronger than otherwise. You realize the gas is on when it is not lit. Or when there is the smell of fire. People who can’t smell anything know exactly what I mean.
Your ability to smell is of great importance to your health. Losing your ability to smell partially or completely is called “anosmia”. It is a signal that something is not as it should be. But what is that? I will name a few causes. Who knows, maybe one of them is true for you.
Causes of anosmia
You might think this is a problem particularly for older people but that is not the case. Estimates are that 2 million people in the USA suffer from it. The causes that are known at this point are:
– Chronic infections of the nose, for example through allergies
– Brain damage, for example though a severe concussion
– Viral infection with the flu or a cold
– Breathing chemical substances
– Emotions / traumas
In the United States, the Anosmia Foundation provides publicity about this affliction and works to have doctors and scientists take it seriously. Thankfully, more research is being done to clarify what causes it and what can be done about it, partly due to the dedication of this foundation. Thanks to this foundation, for their work and their efforts! ❤️
And have a look on the internet. It is very likely that your country also has a foundation for Anosmia! Or maybe you will want to start one!
The MIR-Method and Anosmia
We always have to wait and see what the MIR-Method does in cooperation with your body. However, we do get reports from time to time that someone’s sense of smell has returned. How is that possible? It’s possible when the causes of the anosmia lie in old emotions, such as a trauma or in a disturbance of the lung meridian.
The MIR-Method works layer for layer on old emotions that are still bothering you. Think about old grief, frustrations or fears. These emotions can cause disturbances in the meridians, but also in your cells, through which your body begins to function less efficiently. One result can be a diminished sense of smell.
You detach all of your bad memories and feelings that relate to your father or mother, or other men or women, by doing MIR-Method step 3: ‘Detach father. Detach mother’. The memories are still there but they don’t bother you anymore. That removes the old pain out of your system and frees the path to healing.
With step 4: ‘Clear meridians’, you deal with, among others, the lung meridian. This is one of the meridians that are responsible for the ability to smell. It plays an important role in colds and flu and it helps us to let go of old, stubborn grief. Think about the loss of a loved one, for example. When you stroke step 4, you slowly work on letting go of that grief and your lung meridian can flow freely again.
Always do all 9 steps!
Even though I only mention a few of the steps here, always do all 9 MIR-Method steps! All 9
steps work together to strengthen your immune system. When your immune system is strong, you can deal better with viruses and viral infections.
Have you noticed an improvement in your sense of smell through doing the MIR-Method? I’d love to hear about it! And to help others understand people with anosmia better: which smells would you not want to miss for all the gold in the world? I’d love to hear from you! Please write about it below! Thank you!
By using the “End” key on your keyboard you can go straight to the form. Personal questions should always be asked of a MIR-Method coach!
My wish for you is that your sense of smell returns and remains with you always!
