The Emotional body: Emotions as Feedback

The Emotional body: Emotions as Feedback

Do you constantly switch between being “FINE” and flooded with rage? Do you believe that being “emotional” is bad? Does how you’re feeling dictate how you react to people and situations.

Then your emotional body is out of balance. It is ruling your world! The Emotional body has the most drama associated with healthy management. Miss management leads to drama and chaos in your world. I know my emotional body used to rule my world.  The feeling as intense and I would go from being numb or completely flooded with intense emotions and couldn’t process them.

In our physical bodies our emotional body is represented by the nervous system, hormones, touch, water, water release (tears and sweat), water absorption (bloating or clutching from not letting of, feelings of lack, and trying to hold onto/control things too closely). It is also ruled by our unconscious minds. On the Medicine wheel, our emotional body is falls under the West.

Consider that we have over 7 trillion nerves in the entire body. That means when neurotransmitters flood your nervous system with different hormones the reaction is intense. Take adrenaline for example, that rush through your body is motivating, exciting, scaring, nervous, and intense. It is meant to be. Your body is giving you a signal, and it wants you to listen.

We as humans, form effective coping mechanism, through modelled behaviours. I did not know a single adult who managed their emotional body in a healthy way. I saw numbing, avoidance, escapism, over-reactions, loss of control, manipulation, addictions, essentially toxic ways to handle what was going on internally.

If we don’t like our feelings, we shut them down. You may have been told you’re too much, too emotional, or dramatic when you were younger and decided that you would OVER-CONTROL your reactions and numb, repress, and try to escape your emotional body. There are only so many clothes you can stuff into a closet before it bursts open spewing clothes everywhere. This metaphor is the same for your emotions.

Let’s look at the other side of this pendulum. You wear your emotions on your sleeve, you feel everything very deeply and take everything very personally. You are OVER- EXPERESSIVE of your emotional body and it dictates your reality. This is where people feel the need to walk on eggshells around you. You have become emotionally unsafe based on unpredictable erratic behaviours.

The healthy way to work with your emotional body is finding balance between these two extremes. It is healthy to feel all your emotions, positive and negative. You are also expected to have safe consistent behaviours towards yourself and others. The million-dollar question becomes… HOW????

Start thinking of your emotions as biochemical feedback from your unconscious mind. Your body is communicating with you through your nervous system. Your job is to allow the emotions to flow in the moment. Whichever emotions that are popping up, thank your body for the message and proceed neutrally acting on that message.

To illustrate this mechanism; You are talking with your significant other. You get flooded with this overwhelming sense of rage. You are going to breathe into the rage allowing your system to fully deliver the message. The message only last 10-15 seconds before the neurotransmitters are reabsorbed. You are to pause your conversation with your significant other, excuse yourself, and manage your emotions in a healthy way. In this situation do anger work (punching a pillow, screaming into a towel, going for a run, etc.). I personally like to jot down my thoughts for 2 mins after anger work. Then when you are calm and have fully expressed the rage in a healthy way, go back and continue the conversation with your partner.

This mechanism honours how you are feeling, gets the body moving so you can release the emotions in a healthy way, you had introspective time to listen to what your body was telling you, and then you can act on those thoughts in a calm and neutral way. It takes ownership that your emotions are your responsibility to handle and allows you to stop repressing valid emotions.

This trains your nervous system so you can self-regulate and start living in your parasympathetic nervous system at least 80% of your day. You start to notice that what is coming up for you, is about you. You become emotionally safe to be around. You start to thank your body for those messages and move forward doing behaviours to honour the biochemical feedback you received.

Now it is natural to swing back and forth from the 2 extremes at first. That is how you learn balance. This is a learning process, and you most likely never had anyone demonstrate this for you. Be gentle with yourself moving forward.

This is a skillset and set of behaviours. Because it is a skillset and set of behaviours that means hypnotic acupressure can help you find that balance much quicker. Sign up for a complementary session right now! Finding that balance will be the key to unlock the life you have always wanted.

Integrative Quantum Healing

Integrative Quantum Healing

What in the world is Integrative Quantum Medicine???? I had never heard of it, and I studied many different types of healing during my doctorate in naturopathic medicine. It wasn’t until I sought out the top mind body medicine tools on the planet, that I discovered this new arena of healing.

Honestly, when I was studying naturopathic medicine at the Canadian of College of Naturopathic Medicine here in Toronto, I was closed minded. I was science oriented and only looked through an evidence-based medicine lens. My background in biomedical sciences trained me to follow the dogma of the scientific method without critical evaluation of the specific parameters of the experiment and how those critical controlled factors weren’t carried out into real life. I was also missing the bigger picture of the healing journey.

When I was forced to study the art of naturopathic medicine and the energetic side of medicine, I rolled my eyes. There was one course, that stands out in my first year, the History of Naturopathy. This course was taught by an elder in the profession. We looked at Nature Medicine through different lenses: star seeds, indigo children, spirituality, the science of water and how different frequency effect the molecules, how the history of nature medicine through metaphors and storytelling.

I flat out rejected this consciously, yet deep down inside it activated a curiosity to break free from the contrived narrative traditional western medicine has told. How healing “should be”. I knew the system had many flaws and personally failed me on my healing journey.

Through studying and experiencing different forms of medicine I found my groove balancing the energetics with evidence-based interventions, essentially finding the flow between the art and science of Naturopathic Medicine. I loved it, until it was time for me to grow again.


I stumbled down the Integrative Quantum medicine. rabbit hole. I found where science and spirituality naturally blended. Quantum physics provides the mechanism for Medicine and Spirituality to co-exist in perfect unison. Quantum Physics really changed the game of how the scientific method operates. We start using treatment principles like; as above, so below. Your mind controls your body, and without changing the thoughts, just addressing the physical issues offers a Band-Aid. Change the mindset and thought patterns as addressing the physical body.

As within so without… meaning give an internal treatment when using external modalities. For example: Give a herb/supplement/homeopathic when doing contrast showers.

The ancient wisdoms that have been passed down for generations started to make practical sense as action steps. What was once considered theory, now acts a mechanism for existence. Now this applies to all areas of life. Integrative Quantum Medicine looks at this mechanism through healing. Integrative Quantum medicine is a mature look at the healing journey, where the juvenile and egocentric philosophies of practitioners are challenged to grow up.

We are all one, and all connected. The reason you are sitting in front of me in my office is because I have gone through that portion of the healing journey you need to go through AND it is time that I grow again and heal a deeper layer of this same issue. I am aware that I need to do my piece of my own healing in order to facilitate my clients/patient’s healing journey.

The notion that I heal someone is thrown out the window. That I can control or effect anyone outside myself is eradicated. What I want to stress the most here is that there are solid action steps. This is where the blending between spirituality and science comes in. Science is about action and find effective treatment measures and interventions that work reproducibly. Spirituality is about looking that the bigger picture and patterns. So, by blending the whole life patterns with specific actions step and interventions you enter the world of Quantum Medicine.

I could write an entire book on the mechanism of blending science and spirituality. This is just a snapshot into the Quantum Medicine realm. What I really want to know is….  what questions do you have? Where would do you want more clarity? What ideas or thoughts popped up while reading this blog?
