Our Four Bodies

Our Four Bodies

Do you feel that healing the mind, body and soul is the only effective way to heal?  Do you sound like a broken record because you keep repeating “it’s not about changing your diet; it’s about changing your life”?

You’re on the right track. Root cause medicine is about working with more than just the physical body. It is about aligning and balancing all four bodies.

Every time I say, we have 4 bodies everyone looks at me sideways. They have always been told mind, body and soul. The easiest comparison I can make are these assumptions; balancing the mind is about mental and emotional health, the body is the physical body, and the soul is balancing the spiritual body. It is a different way to look at the same philosophy.

The Four bodies come from ancient esoteric literature and has a set of tools and behaviours that need to be mastered in order to be healthy. They are all considered bodies because they have a behaviour that need to be implemented. Not concepts, or theories of how to balance them, actual skill sets. 

The Physical Body is exactly what you assume. It is our body and all that makes it up. Bones, skin, organs, muscles, ligaments etc. We have studied the human physical form for centuries. We have even created specialists for that can tell you all about each system in our body and its individual purpose. When I am talking about the physical body, I am looking at the human body as a whole. How each system interrelates to each other, and how to bring our physical body into beautiful homeostasis. Our physical body is how we experience our reality, and our ability to heal.

The emotional body handles our emotions. It is not an abstract body. This body represents our relationship and feelings to all things. This is where our reality is interpreted and synthesized. How we feel in a situation dictates how we respond. Our emotions are how we interpret the world in the beginning. If left unchecked, we become over emotional and repress the emotional body you become hard and ill. The emotional body speaks through the nervous system, hormones, and water homeostasis in the body. Our emotional body is a bridge between the physical and mental body.

The mental body is about our thoughts, attitudes, and judgements. This is the body of our intellect. Everything we have learned in school, how we process information, which words we choose, and it deals with our focus, clarity and direction.

What we think will come from the mental body through the emotional body, release neurotransmitters and hormones, and cascade down to the smallest parts of our physical body. Altering our epigenetics. This has been well documented, and Biology of Belief is a beautiful resource if you want to learn more. Dr. Bruce Lipton is a genius.  

So what about our spiritual body?

Our Spiritual Body connects us to world outside ourselves. Through our spiritual body we are connected to the earth, the universe, God, the beyond, our higher self. Our spiritual body allows us deeper meaning and purpose. It connects us to all that is in existence. Doesn’t have to do with religion or spirituality. It has to do with connection, and that we are not alone. It really represents the unity between our soul, life, experience and destiny. 

All these bodies need to be balanced in order to live a happy, healthy, wealthy and thriving life. We will have strength and weaknesses in all bodies, and we will favour others. I know growing up and going through Med school I liked to pretend that I didn’t have emotions and spirituality wasn’t for me. Again, I was suffering from anxiety and complete denial that I have been given spiritual gifts.

 My mental and physical body got all my focus and were overacting on my underdeveloped emotional and spiritual bodies. It was only by working on my weakest bodies did I get better. Faster than ever expected. I accepted that I have a spiritual body and it needs to be nourished so I can truly heal. 

The human body and consciousness are incredible. How adaptable we are, and how all our bodies work together in beautiful harmony.

What is important to know is that illness will affect all four bodies. Illness also doesn’t start in the physical body, it ends in the physical body. It will pass through our spiritual, mental, emotional and into our physical body.

In our physical body we experience the discord of illness. To truly heal we need to heal more than just our physical form. We need to heal our thoughts and connect our existence to our divine mission.

I never thought I would be talking about divine missions and balancing the spiritual body. I thought doctors who talked of such things drank the cool aid and were off their rockers. I learned the hard way that I needed to be less resistant and embrace that I was really meant for more. The role of a healer is to do just that. We bridge people into their divine missions to align their spiritual body to work in harmony with the other three.

When the majority of the healer on the planet have the skill sets to do this, we will have a shift in global consciousness, truly use root cause medicine, and transform the wellness industry for the better.

The Unwritten Healer Boundaries

The Unwritten Healer Boundaries

Have you ever wanted a manual that simply tells you how to be the best human you can be? Have you ever wondered why your professional college has a code of conduct? Or why those codes of conducts aren’t complete?

There are so many different texts to look through and none of them are complete. We have different religious texts that talk of how to “be good”, we have our professional colleges code of conduct to handle the legality of practicing, and no one ever talks about the energetic boundaries of being a successful healer.

We have been left to piece together our own interpretation of keeping ourselves safe mentally, emotionally and spiritually while practicing. Would you believe there is an actual skill set that needs to be put in place in your practice? That skill set will also allow you to have more time with your family, make more money, and heal people so deeply it seems like magic.

 This skill set is putting in fundamental healer boundaries AND ENFORCING THEM.

When I first learned of boundaries in a formal manner, I swore that I had amazing boundaries. I was having major anxiety attacks, working myself to the bone, made myself available for patients, and let my guilt control my actions… and  I swore I had phenomenal boundaries.

That is not having boundaries. That is having an illusion of what boundaries are with no tactical skill sets to enforce them, or when I need to put them in place.

When you learn how to properly put in healthy boundaries in your practice, there will be a ripple effect throughout your life. Your relationships, your business, your health, and your happiness will all change for the better. In this blog we are going to look specifically at the top three healer boundaries to enforce in your practice.

1. Scheduling (the time boundary).

You have heard this one before, and not this way. Your calendar is a boundary for your life. Your calendar means that you have set time for seeing clients, time for managing your business, and time for growth and development. You honour your hours, all the different forms of them. This also implies that your practice time is not just filled with seeing patients.

 Now this being said, you get to make your own hours. My business hours are designed to work with my most productive times during the day. I will not see a client or a patient before 1 PM. I need my morning routine to set me up, to be the best I possibly can for the day. I only see people one: one on certain days. This reminds me of a story.

I had a referral from another health coach to help this client get over being stuck. This client was stuck and had tried everything. I agreed to do a Mindset Intake where I look at their unconscious programming. All this potential client had to do was book in at a time I had available. They said they were willing to do anything, and when it came down to it, they kept asking for times I wasn’t available.

The younger version of me, would have made an exception and opened another time slot up so I could see them. The wiser version of me loves my boundaries and knows that it is the client’s responsibility to come and see me when I am available. If they are not willing to shift their schedule to fit in their own healing, then they really aren’t ready to heal. They are just talking about wanting to be ready. He thought that in order to become healthy, it had to be convenient. That unconscious programming will only lead to minimal results and keep them stuck… the very thing they say they want to get over.

You see, by making myself available to suit the needs of my clientele isn’t healthy. It also doesn’t show them how to enforce boundaries. It allows old unconscious patterning to continue and makes my life harder; my work and family life suffer. When did it become the social norm for holistic healthcare providers to drop everything to heal the world?  Why are we supposed to work late hours to suit everyone else’s schedule and take time away from our families?

Time is one of the primary boundaries that needs to be enforced in order to create a balance in your life. You will build the ideal practice. You will be seeing patients who are really looking to heal and will prioritize their health. Welcome to the recipe of your dream practice.  

 2. Responsibility for Change (Energetic and emotional Boundaries)

We have all heard that the patient needs to do the work. It is their body and their life. We have the physical and mental boundaries around the responsibility for change. No one goes to their patient’s house and force feeds them healthy food. We know that it’s their life to do with as they choose. Most healers never got the memo for the energetic and emotional boundaries around the responsibility for change.

When a client comes in and says that nothing as improved…. Is the first thought that runs thought your head a variation of; “Crap… I must have done something wrong… why am I  not good enough to be a doctor?”

99% of healers do have those thoughts pop up on a regular basis. If their client is not getting better than that means that they aren’t good at what they do. This is an emotional response. You are also dropping down into your patient’s energetic field and taking on their hopelessness. That is a major boundary break for 2 reasons.

 Your patient is there to get better. Dropping into their energetic field is breaking their boundary, and you’re focus ends up being on your own pity party. They are not paying for either of those.

 Letting your patient off the hook for not seeing their own results breaks your healer boundary. You gave them an amazing treatment plan, why are they not following it? Who says that change had to be easy in order to make it happen? Are there gaps that need to be filled on changing their diets? You need to put on your detective hat and figure out where the client needs extra resources. Maybe a different dosage or supplement brand. This has nothing to do with your ability as a healer.

 The same is true when they are doing amazing. The client is doing amazing, not you. They are doing the doings and reaping the benefits. You congratulate them on all their work and manage your own emotional and energetic boundaries.

3. Calibrating on patient’s behaviours vs feelings (Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Boundaries)

 How many of us ask how the patient is doing, and when they say they feel amazing we take that as a sign that our treatment plans are working? How many of us, automatically start revising our treatment plan when they say they are feeling crappy?

 Effective healers know that how you are feeling is irrelevant to your results. Happy, healthy and wealthy are sets of behaviours that lead us to sustained happiness, health and wealth.

 Have they effectively taken out gluten, or doing it only some of the time? Are they exercising regularly? Are they consistently taking their iron supplement? These are behaviors that will lead to sustained health.

 Being healthy also means that people will feel all their emotions. That is healthy. Unconsciously signalling to your patients that being in a bad mood means something is wrong, trains them that to equate sadness= unhealthy. Sadness is a biochemical signal to change something. It is a healthy response to many situations.

 Managing your need to make people feel better in your presence is about enforcing your emotional, spiritual and mental boundaries.

 Your thoughts need to be on what the client truly needs…. Not what is going to make you feel better about them being sad. This reminds me of another story.

 A woman came into my office and started to cry as soon as she sat down. She kept saying she was sorry, and this isn’t like her. She was trying to pull herself together. There are two typical responses in this situation; console her, or hope she pulls it together to do the session.

 My response was to gently question her beliefs. Why are you apologizing for crying?  Who told you that crying was unacceptable? How often do you let yourself cry? Effectively I am normalizing a healthy response in her world. My focus is completely on her gaining awareness of the unhealthy pattern she has been running. I am breaking an unhealthy belief that has limited her emotional health.

 If my focus was on how I felt, I would have immediately gone over there and consoled her. I would have given her advice on what was bothering her. That would have made me and her feel better. That is a short term fix.  Because my focus was on healing her, I allowed her to heal and become aware of deeper issues that run through her entire life. That has a massive impact.

 I then tasked her to change behaviours around crying and emotional expression. I gave her some skills and behaviours to use to bring her emotional body back into balance. Every time I checked in on her I was focused on her behaviours.

 Effective healers always calibrate on behaviours, and fill the gaps as they appear during the course of treatment.

 You can see how enforcing just these three boundaries will make a massive impact on your life, and your patients’ life. Notice it starts with you. You need to enforce your boundaries. You need to change your life before you can impact others. You get to be the change, and it requires a lot less work than you ever thought it would.

The Healer’s Role

The Healer's Role

Do you see a person and pain and swoop in, without even thinking? Are you drawn to people who need help? Do you graciously offer your knowledge and wisdom to those you think could benefit from it?

That makes you a healer. A beautiful and magical healer with amazing capabilities. It also comes with certain boundaries and roles that aren’t spoken about.

The people I work with, and train are healers in the tops of their industries. They are looking to grow and break free from the traditional model of practice that leaves healers burnt out and broke.

I want to share a secret with you.  I received this secret from the very wise mystical healers in integrative Quantum Medicine. Listen closely….  being broke, boundary-less, and scattered is not fulfilling my mission and getting me further from my need to heal the world. That is a sure-fire way to continue hiding and playing it small. It will also ensure that I stay broke, exhausted and have a “legit” excuse not to do my soul contracted mission.

Let’s unpack my previous statement. There are a lot of presuppositions in that sentence, and I want to make sure we are all on the same page before I move on.

1. You have a human body, which means that you have a higher purpose and mission to fulfill here down on earth.
2. That higher purpose is written into your soul contract. You signed that contract, or you would have been given a body.
3. Keeping yourself exhausted and burnt out is an active choice, and typically one made on the unconscious level.
4. You are unconsciously breaking your soul contract by refusing to take care of yourself. Your job is to keep yourself full, and energized. That way you can help humanity and make the impact that you seek.
5. Being scattered, or what I lovingly call “Squirrel syndrome”, is an unconscious pattern you use, to avoid how powerful you truly are.
6. Boundaries and structure are requirements to manage your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being. Which means you must enforce your boundaries.
7. Your boundaries are your responsibility.
8. Being a healer is one of the highest forms of service and needs to have an equivalent exchange of energy. Which means, you have the ability to make billions of dollars in exchange for your services. Embrace the energetic exchange.

Now that we are all on the same page. Take a deep breath and relax. I promise you, it will all be ok. 

Let’s talk about your amazing gifts and skills. I know that you are a phenomenal healer with amazing and heartfelt intentions. You wouldn’t have made a career for yourself in the wellness industry if you didn’t want to help people.

What has gotten lost, as our medical advancements increased, is our ability to take responsibility for our own healing. The mentality that patients need to be fixed is false and harmful. This is where pills (pharmaceutical and nutraceutical) have come to dominate the wellness industry. Those are crutches are hiding unhealthy patterns and bandied solutions halting true healing.

Our role as healers is guide people through their healing journey ensuring that they take full responsibility for their health. That they get better by doing the doings that are designed to up level their entire life. Not just their health.

You must first take the journey yourself before you can stick your hand out to anyone else to help them. Our job is to offer our services and make sure they can continue their path on their own merit. As you up level you then can lead them through on their next step of their journey.

All modalities work. Our role is to know when to use which modality and WHY we are using it. It is our responsibility to work with all 4 bodies and bring those into balance. This is accomplished through different tasks that the patients can do on their own.

In the beginning you will be monitoring them. You will help guide them when they are toddlers learning to the “manage” stage I talked about last week. These tasks will be their lifestyle changes. Those changes, if done effectively, will ricochet through their entire life. This way they up level and gain the clarity to do their soul’s mission.

The role of a healer is far greater than healing just the physical body. It is about bring alignment of all their bodies so they too can go forward and do their mission.

The Healing Journey Formula

The Healing Journey Formula

Do you believe that being in great health is one of the best gifts you can give someone? Are you constantly preaching to your patients that taking care of their health is a lifetime commitment?

Do you stand rooted in their magnificence, and work with them so they can see their own magnificence?

If you do, you have the mindset of an elite healer. You are on the right track to truly make a difference in your patients’ lives and empower them on their healing journey.

So many amazing healers walk into my trainings with the noblest intentions and are at the tops of their respective fields. What none of them know is the literal healing journey they take their patients on. They think it is an abstract concept tell to their clients.

How many times have you said, “you are never done”, or “health is an ongoing practice”, even “it’s about lifestyle changes not diets”? I am sure there are many other variations you have told your clientele that just ran through your head.

Healing is a journey, except the actual journey is never talked about. We all go about health like its an ongoing marathon …. Kind of like hamsters running in a wheel. No idea where the destination is, or how to pace ourselves.

It’s time to change that! I feel, deep down in my bones, if we are going to transform the healthcare system, every healer must understand the journey they are guiding people through, and their role in it. This blog post is going to go over the Journey itself. The healer role will be my next blog post.

So let’s take a little journey together:

Everyone starts in “problem”. This sounds like, “I have a headache,” or my “tummy hurts” or “I was just diagnosed with a medical condition, and I feel lost, confused, and alone right now”. You have heard this from your clients, and I know you have all said something along these lines. That’s because we are humans. We will all journey together.

Now the next destination on our journey is coming into “awareness”. Now we know that we have a problem. We may even know where the problem is stemming from, or which organs are being affected. Anytime we are in “awareness” you have no idea how to change the problem. All you have is the enlightenment that you do, indeed, have a “problem”.

As we continue our journey, our next few steps are going to being us to “new skills and resources”. This stage of the journey is about asking for help and getting guidance to fill our gaps. This is where people reach out to doctors, and holistic healers. They are coming to you for new skills and resources they previously didn’t have. This is where most healers thrive. We love layering different modalities into treatment plans and watch our patients thrive. This is also where mot healers pretend that the journey ends. With them, and their amazing skills and resources. Alas this is not where the journey ends.

As we move forward, we find ourselves at the “Manage” stage in the healing journey. This is where we integrate all those new skills, and resources into our daily lives and learn how to do things differently than we used to. We start out as toddlers, learning how to go dairy and gluten free. Making a bunch of mistakes and learning to laugh about them later. After we have gotten the hang of all those new skills and resources, it becomes our norm.

Which leads us the last stage of the healing journey, “Solution”. This is where we are feeling better. The headaches are gone, stomach aches are things of the past, and you feel like a brand-new person. As a healer I love this stage. I also noticed in private practice this is where patients pretended that they were “cured” and didn’t need any more help. The next time I would see them would be when they ended up with another problem.

Which brings up the last important bit of information on the healing journey formula. We will cycle these 5 stages as we grow and up level as humans. The journey never ends. We get to keep growing and healing for the rest of our lives and then…. beyond.

What questions do you have? What just landed differently in your world? What do I need to know?

I would love to hear your thoughts, and how this changed your view on “the journey”. Book in with me a zoom tea and let’s connect!

Hypnosis as an alternative to general anesthesia

Hypnosis as an alternative to general anesthesia

Are you interested in an ancient secret that only a small number of people know about speeding up your recovery time after any procedure?

Are you curious how to speed up your healing while decreasing sides effects of any general anesthesia?

This secret is hypnosis.

You need to bring a patient down into deep hypnotic state known as the Esdaile state. After this state is achieved surgeries can be performed on people without pain. Using hypnosis during surgery has no side effects and have faster recovery rates. This is how powerful your mind really is. There is no need for general anesthesia.

Let’s take a quick look at the fascinating history of hypnosis. Hypnosis has been used for pain management during surgery as early as the 1800s. Dr. James Esdaile was a Scottish Surgeon who worked for the East India Company. He was the pioneer of surgical operations with mesmeric trance. Mesmerism is an early form of hypnosis.

What was fascinating, was the post op death rates dropped from 50% to 5%. Astonishing for that time period. Dr. James Braid, a British surgeon, was doing similar work during his surgeries. Braid was the Doctor who coined the word Hypnotism. Both have found hypnosis to be an effective anesthesia.

Now, Esdaile could take up to 4 days to bring a patient down into the Esdaile state in preparation for the surgery. This made it more comfortable for the patient drastically improved their likelihood to survive after the surgery. This is a long time for a doctor to spend with every patient before performing the surgery.

As Esdaile started rising in status, writing many books and appointed Bengal Presidency Surgeon, chloroform and ether came out as general anesthesia. These options did not take 4 days and were easier for most surgeons to use. There was no need for extra training in hypnosis.

Today Hypnosis is still used during surgeries. There have been modifications and advancements from the 1800s, and many people opt for a hybrid of hypnosis and anesthesia.

Now using hypnosis during surgery allows your body to be in it’s theta brainwave the entire time. Which means your body is already starting to heal during the surgery. This is also another way to reduce trauma during surgeries and makes sures that the operating room remains verbally empowering.

Most surgeons make sure their operating room is a sterile environment: physically and mentally. This means that the nurses are pristine with their language and speak highly of the patient. Being under anesthesia, doesn’t mean you suddenly become deaf. You will hear everything.

Adding a Medical Hypnotherapist to your team can bring a transcendental experience for all your patients. The unconscious mind is being empowered and given suggestions about healing, reducing scar formation, and boosting immunity.

So the next time you are scheduled for a surgery look for a hypnotherapist that can work with your during your dental surgeries or other operations. If you are part of a surgical team look at different options to help your patient heal faster and add a medical hypnotherapist.

Hope Medicine

Hope Medicine

Are you getting antsy just sitting there as the world around becomes more chaotic? Do you hear yourself constantly telling clients that “you’re going to get through this”? Do you see more and more mental health cases and addictions in your practice?

This is becoming our new reality. The world has changed so much in the last few years. We are starting to see mental health steadily increase, alcohol and drug abuse rise, and people are feeling hopeless.

We can sympathize with that, because we are human. The truth of the matter is, health care providers are the ones who are feeling it the most. We want, so badly, to heal the world and see our clients be the best versions of themselves. We have so much faith in the people we see that we give too much to our practices. Especially now.

What if I could tell you there is something that can easily overcome this? Something so simple that you probably overlooked it. What if all you had to do was make a slight shift to what you are already doing?

Would you do it?

There is one mindset that will combat all the negativity in the world: HOPE.

Think of installing Hope into every patient and person you encounter. That is the very essence of Hope Medicine.

This is our job as leaders in the wellness industry, to install hope into our patients. Our patients see our resolve and we can see them instantly get new motivation and a surge of energy. When they have ta cheerleader in their corner, giving them faith in themselves, the course of their treatment drastically changes.

Their treatment plan compliance increases, their mood elevates, their exercise becomes effortless, and those diet changes become possible.

In order to do this for our clients, we need to do this for ourselves first. We need to be searching for our own hope. Finding our internal motivation that lights up our soul enough that it overflows into our practice. If we don’t have this, we won’t be able to do this for others. It is about having that that undeniable resolve in Hope Medicine because you experienced it. That experience allows this to be effective.

It can be easy and effortless to implement. What is the one big dream, that lights up your soul to the point your entire body is buzzing?

We are all Healers

We are all Healers

It was funny, I was listening to What Happened to You? Conservations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing by Dr. Perry and Oprah, and one small phrase had me wracking my brain, and making new connections.

The Line was, “We are healers”. An Indigenous healer from New Zealand had told Doctor Perry this when he was working in a clinic there. Originally, he thought the woman was talking about the two of them. Later, he came to understand that the woman was talking about the community.

When I heard this story, my brain lit up. I immediately thought of our innate ability to heal ourselves. Of course, we are all healers! Of course, everyone has the capability to heal and help others heal because that is what people do. They heal. They form community and help their people through struggles. It doesn’t matter if you have a doctor in front of your name or certifications.

Humans have the ability to heal and therefore are healers. If we get a cut, our cells will form a scab, the scab will fall off and leave our skin healed. We all have this ability. So after this wonderful realization made e critically analyze what being a healer really means.

I take pride in my abilities as a healer. What do I really mean when I say healer then? I came to one logical answer. My job as a healer is to help facilitate growth and change the old patterns keeping people in pain. Essentially, I am a highly trained tour guide as the person sitting in front me heals themselves.

I unconsciously was still attributing my identity to being able to heal people. When I found out that didn’t make me special, I took a deep dive into my ego. This was the first time I really knew, in my heart, that I am a compassionate, loving and kind tour guide. Doesn’t matter what letters come after my name. I am not THE healer.

My self-worth isn’t wrapped up in what I can do for people. My self-worth stems from who I am as a human being; kind, compassionate, sarcastic, spicy, playful, intelligent, wise, and so many more beautiful qualities. This was another layer of my trauma physiology and mentality coming up to be healed.

High functioning over achievers and perfectionists run the limiting belief that I am valued for what I can provide and do for others. Cancel, Cancel, cancel that non-sense. I am valued for who I am!

A lot of stress released that I was still carrying around unconsciously. It is not my responsibility to heal the world. It is my responsibility to guide and train people to more effective healers so they can continue to heal themselves.

I cannot make someone heal. I cannot force anyone to do anything they don’t want to do. I can facilitate and help them with different tools that will make them kickass healers. This means that my patients and clients need to step up for themselves. Take back what they are actively trying to project on me.

They need to step into being their own healer. I need to better facilitate their growth, motivate them to be an active participant in their healing, bring awareness to their amazing value, she light on their self-worth that they have forgotten and stand in their magnificence when they can’t see it for themselves. That job description is a very different one than healer.

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Shaping Our Neurology

Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) Shaping Our Neurology

I am a huge fan of audiobooks, and the last one I listened to was, What Happened to You? Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing by Dr. Bruce D. Perry and Oprah Winfrey.

I was shocked when they talked about Adverse Childhood Experiences or ACEs and the impact they have on forming neurotypical pathways, behavioural responses and our ability to self-regulate. I first heard of ACEs during a mental health conference I attended years ago. They talked about ACEs being linked to chronic health problems, mental illness, and substance use problems in adulthood. ACEs can also negatively impact education, job opportunities, and earning potential.

The CDC defines ACEs as potentially traumatic experiences that occur in childhood (0- 17 years old). In What Happened to You? Dr. Perry talks about how early a child experiences a traumatic event is more predictive of chronic health problems, mental illness or substance abuse. This was fascinating, and a little frightening when I discovered this.

As a mother of a three year old, who had a hard time adjusting to the demands of motherhood, I felt guilty. A part of me was relying on the fact my child wouldn’t remember the struggles I had during my transition from Maiden into Mother. I never thought of the impact of my husband going to Iqaluit for a month right after my child was born, would shape his neurology more so, than the months he has been separated from his father when he was a toddler.

The earlier the exposure matters more than the length of the exposure in terms of likelihood of developing maladaptive behaviours. Now, the human brain is extremely flexible. Our neuroplasticity means that we have the ability to change throughout our entire life. We can change the way we are wired.

Yes, our childhood and ACEs will shape our neurology and our coping strategies. ACEs will activate the sympathetic nervous system to be on overdrive, leaving people to have short fuses, see the world as unsafe and live in chaos. What is really important is that you can change that. There are ways to heal from past traumas. That wiring doesn’t have to dictate your life.

Just because there is a link to chronic disease, substance abuse, low income, and a multitude of other consequences, doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. It means that we have to look at different strategies when dealing with children or adults that come from trauma. It means that working with the deepest structures of the brain is mandatory. Being part of a community that helps you get over the hurdles is mandatory.

As a person that checked off all the ACEs except for my parents getting divorced, I can tell you that change is possible. That finding that inner quiet and changing your behaviours to get you where you want to go, is easier than you think.

Every interaction and relationship you experienced shapes your brain structure. We like it when those interactions and experiences are healthy. They lead to neurotypical pathways. Make no mistake, it does not matter your background, there is always hope for a brighter future.

If you suffered from any past trauma and want to start living the life you have always dreamed about, book a discovery call with me right now. I promise you there is always a way to get to where you want to go!

Re-defining Individualized Healthcare

Re-defining Individualized Healthcare

How often does a textbook case walk into your office? Do your patients say, “I’ve been diagnosed with multiple conditions”? How many hours have you spent searching the internet to find the diagnosis that fits most of the symptoms?

You rarely get a textbook case walking into your office, and sometimes their symptoms seem random and unrelated. People are different. They experience the exact same medical condition differently.

Take someone with anxiety. There are many different manifestations of anxiety. Some people will overeat to comfort themselves; others will stop eating all together. Some people will have constipation, others chronic diarrhea, and still others will experience bouts of diarrhea and constipation. Even the way they experience their own anxiety can change and morph over time as they evolve.

The way we experience our reality will shape the way we interact with the rest of the world. This is true of our medical conditions. This is why, individualized healthcare as gained popularity in the last few years. It took into consideration our individual needs and our unique intricacies.

I would like to take this one step further. Each symptom that we experience is a message for us to learn from. That message is individualized to the person who is experiencing it. People who are experience heart palpitations would have different lessons to learn from the exact same symptom.

One may need to deal with their past childhood abandonment issues that left them feeling unworthy of love, another patient may need to deal with tendency to control the world around them. Guiding them to feel empowered on their healing journey has very different sets of actions and tasks. Yet the same supplementation and dietary recommendations would be indicated.

The areas that we need to spend more time on are different in every single case, if you want their healing to be truly transformative. Someone with anxiety may need to find their own place to live in order to facilitate their healing. Others may need to get a roommate. Each of these options requires different strategies and resource management.

When you make healthcare so individualized it takes into account patients’ unconscious programming, you change the entire health paradigm. You gain deeper insight into your patients’ unique needs and create more effective treatment plans. This also increases patient compliance and drastically changes their health.

We know that the body does what the mind commands. You train your patients to change the way they think and how their mind responds to stimuli, their body naturally follows. You teach them to listen to those slight changes in their physiology so they can respond in healthy way.

This is simpler than it may seem. This level of individualized care happens when you integrate neuro-linguistic programming, hypnotherapy, Timeline Therapy, and NLP Results coaching into your practice.

Adding these tools will transform your practice and allow you to re-define the meaning of individualized healthcare.

The Healing Mindset

The Healing Mindset

Imagine if your disease was sending you a message. Wouldn’t that take all the weight of healing away? That in order to heal all you would have to do is decipher the message your body was sending you.

Sounds too simple to be true, right? What if I told you that you were making it hard, by how you looked at healing? What if I told you that you had the power to amazing things, including healing from incurable diseases?

You hear about these people all the time. In the medical community we call them anomalies, and we are told that isn’t the standard. In religious communities they would say that a miracle happened. We tend to brush these phenomena off, because we tell ourselves, “I can’t do that, or that will never happen to me, or that’s just not realistic”

It was realistic to the person it happened to. They would have been told the exact same messages from their doctors are what the doctors told you. Yet… they fully healed. Why? What makes them different? Why is everyone brushing them off, and not asking them what they did differently?

Maybe, just maybe, they understood that their body was sending them a message, and they took the time to listen to it. Maybe what they did differently was tell themselves that they are going to get through this. People every day conquer this illness and go on and to live happy, thriving lives.

Their mindset was one of determination and hope. They were stubborn! They were stubborn about being right. Except what they were stubborn about was being rooted in the fact they were going to heal from this and come out stronger from this experience. They didn’t care what they had to do or let go of in order to heal.

They stopped clinging to their truth that healing has to be hard and take a long period of time. They transformed how they viewed their health and healing. They took wisdom from their body and used it to get their unconscious need met in a healthy way.

This explains all the anomalies and miracles I read about. Too many people are fighting to be right versus happy, healthy and wealthy. They surrendered to the their bodies inner wisdom, and looked deep inside themselves to find the courage to do the extraordinary.

Dis-ease is a transient state, if you let it be. The healing mindset is about getting really honest about what you need in order to heal, both unconsciously and physically. Throw self-judgement and deprecating thoughts out the window. Your need is your need, regardless of how you feel about it. To heal, you need to become neutral about your individual needs, and unapologetically get it met.

Doing this requires you to change your lifestyle, habits and thought patterns. It requires you to grow and take charge of your life. I promise you, if you do this, not only will you heal…. You will find where your personal power has been hiding.

I ask you again; What if I told you that your disease is getting an unconscious need met in a very unhealthy way? What if that was the wakeup call you needed to change your life for the better?
