Salomon Sellam, with 28 books on his clinical experience in psychosomatic analysis published in France, 13 in Spain and 6 in Italy, created the Institute of Clinical Psychosomatic in France to train professionals.
He has spent 22 years practicing and studying the influence of the mind on the body, on how we program illnesses.
How? ‘Or’ What?
There is a conflicting story that can be found in the analysis of a person’s life: pregnancy, childhood and the social, spiritual and emotional context in which the individual’s personality is built.
Do conflicts start in the womb?
And before. Since the eighties, the importance of transgenerational history has been underlined, that is to say that in the family romance, there may be ingredients that explain a disease of today.
What if we didn’t know anything about our ancestors?
Subconsciously we know it, and there is all my work. Based on clinical research, for example, in my study “The lying syndrome, a subtle replacement child”, I describe the transgenerational consequences of family tragedies such as the death of a very young child.
It is something universal that belongs to the collective unconscious: it is the automatic and transgenerational repair of family tragedies that I qualify as unjustified and unjustifiable. The consequences can be medical, psychological or psychiatric. Allow me a paradigmatic example. Salvador Dalí is a typical case of a surrogate child. His older brother, also named Salvador, died at the age of two and a half. A week after the funeral, Salvador Segundo was conceived and was born nine months later.
It’s putting the same name …
It’s more common than you might think. David, a teenager, suffered from schizophrenia. While investigating, we discovered that there had been two wrongful deaths in his family. In his unconscious was inscribed: “I have no right to live my life. We did not cure him, but we managed to get him to normalize his life.
He specifies that allergies do not exist.
The allergen is the witness of a psychic shock. Every time Mr. Strawberry picked up a strawberry, he unconsciously relived the unexpected day his wife told him she was leaving him in front of a strawberry plantation. The brain associated the strawberry with psychic shock.
Have all pollen allergies had a psychological trauma?
For me there is a psychic component until proven otherwise. All the cases that conventional medicine has failed to cure come to my office.
You also studied difficult love affairs, what did you discover?
The man unconsciously seeks in his partner the peculiarities of his mother and of the woman, of his father.
It’s an old theory.
What I discovered is that once the children are born, the subconscious interprets the relationship as symbolic incest and this results in a decrease in the frequency of sexual relations.
How to prevent it?
Bring out the fundamentals of the couple. Everything that does not leave our lips cries out from the depths of our soul … and becomes a symptom.
What is a healthy relationship with a partner?
The one who grows in consciousness: I know what I expect from you and you know what you expect from me to grow together. There are three key verbs when there are problems with the couple: to speak, to speak and to speak. Couples never talk enough.
What kinds of problems do skin diseases come from?
From the mother’s contact with the baby. The baby’s brain registers that contact is a safety, and whenever there is a break in contact, the skin manifests it. But eczema, psoriasis or skin cancer have different and very specific origins.
There are people who barely eat and put on weight.
If neither diet nor exercise worked, it could be roughly speaking of an unconscious insecurity that has blocked the functioning of renal elimination and made you accumulate water.
What if what you accumulated was fat?
When I don’t feel safe I have to reserve and at the psychophysiopathological level, fat is the reserve compartment of the body. But there are also very special cases like that of the son who is programmed as a cane for old age. To be a good rod, you have to be strong, to be resistant.
Many people suffer from back pain.
Each vertebra has a special meaning. We will take the most classic: lumbar remover, responsible for sciatica or low back pain which responds to the devaluation of all those who are at the same level: partner (in 90% of cases), friends, brothers …
If the discomfort is cervical?
So the problem is the passage from the mind to the body: people who have plans and dreams but cannot achieve them or who act but their mind does not agree with what they are doing.
