German New Medicine & the Mind-Body Connection

Recently, I was introduced to the work of Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, M.D., who explored the connection between specific diseases and even the specific types of diseases ( lung versus breast versus prostate cancer) and the specific emotional traumas experienced by his patients. Even which side of the body was affected was found to be relevant to emotional issues. As he studied his patient’s brain scans and their histories, not only did he find patients with particular cancers has emotional issues in common with each other but that these issues were different from other cancers and other diseases. Further, he found markers on specific areas of the brain scans for each disease. This allowed him later to diagnose what was going on in the body from the CT scans alone. 

iu  Originally studying cancer patients, he went on to catalog the mind-body connection for a host of other diseases as well. He found that an unexpected emotional shock and the subjective internal conflict it caused in the patient determines which illness manifests and where.  You can find more on his work here and here. Another article briefly summarizing his work and from I took the photo is here.

A very interesting feature in the first above link is a listing of diseases and the emotional conflict it represents. See it here. Understand that there is no harm to do inner work (meditation/hypnosis/dowsing) to clear a possible non-beneficial emotion or conflict. The moment you change your mind, interpret something different about what happened, the emotional impact upon you changes. This is necessary to free up energy for your body to heal.

Below is a sample wording. But you might contact me for more assistance.

“If I have any iota or residue of _____ (conflict) on any level or dimension of my being, from any point in time, I command that it be resolved, transmuted, healed fully and completely in a way that I am able to rapidly be restored to abundant good health now. I command that any unresolved emotional trauma responsible or related in any way for the health condition of ___ be clarified, resolved, released, or healed. I release all blocks known and unknown to my full healing now.”

Marilyn Gang, President of Toronto Dowsers has given me permission to reprint a portion of their January/February 2017 Newsletter that includes information of Dr. Hamer’s work. It is part of a 4-part series on “The Politics of Health.” While I will reprint it separately, you can view it now here

“Dowsing for Mind-Body Healing” with Roxanne Louise

Call 712-775-7035, then with prompt, access code is 436564#. You will be able to ask questions on the live call. A recording will be posted the following day at https://dowsers.org/tuesday-open-meetings/. For background information, you might read the articles on Roxanne’s blog, but especially those below. See UnlimitedPotentialHealingCenter.com 

First of all, all illness has a stress component that weakened the system and interfered with it’s ability to maintain homeostasis. And, in addition, those same stressors may be siphoning off vital energy that is required for healing now. This stress can be physical including chemical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Anything that consumes more energy than it supplies can be considered a ‘stressor’ including ‘good’ or ‘happy’ things like moving into a new home, getting married, having a baby, starting a new job.

While illness may have a genetic component, biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton maintains that each gene can have multiple possible expressions. The environment determines how it is expressed. So why this expression, and why now?

Illness can also have a pathogen component. Yet it has been found that people can be exposed to the same bug, yet not everyone gets sick. Why? 

Dowsing can assist you in pinpointing your own vulnerabilities and brainstorm possible ways of addressing them in a can’t hurt way. Roxanne has written an entire book of charts and checklists to assist in locating both in her book, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing.

She also has written another book for accessing internal resources in solving problems and releasing stress in her book ACCESSING MORE – Tapping into the Eternal, Unlimited Self with the Infinite Intelligence Process

This is NOT about diagnosing or treating disease. It is about establishing a wholistic approach to health and good self-care, and covering the bases not taken into consideration by the allopathic or pharmaceutical establishments. 

Listen in this Tuesday, October 17 at 8 PM Eastern Standard Time or go to dowsers.org any time after to listen to the recording. Call Roxanne Louise at 434-263-4337 or email at RoxanneLouise2@gmail.com for further information.

Dowsing for Mind-Body Healing

When a person is ill, they typically go to a doctor for a diagnosis. But the diagnosis, even if accurate, is not the root cause of the problem. The disease may only manifest after years of the body being abused, of other things being unbalanced or neglected, of the mind or body being overworked, overwhelmed, stressed out, of the spirit disconnected from joy, purpose, fulfillment or loving relationships. The cause may stem from years of unresolved upsets and issues, detrimental beliefs, habits or lifestyle.

In this way, disease is an opportunist taking advantage of some weak spot. And while a person may be good about taking good care of himself in certain ways, he may ignore or even abuse himself in others. For example, he may eat right or exercise but still smoke. It is in the neglected or abused area where the body and health will break down. At the time, he may think he is invincible, that his body will always bounce back, or that for any reason that he has to push himself beyond sensible limits. He may think that his ego, sense of self image, job or family responsibilities or finances depend upon it. He may feel that life is about having fun but then interpret ‘fun’ in some self-destructive way. He may think that he has plenty of time to get serious about his health in some far distant tomorrow. Then tomorrow comes and the piper wants to be paid.

Think of it this way: a house may be burglarized because it was easy— by all appearances, no one was home, the door was unlocked, or a window was left open. And while there was an alarm system, it may not have been turned on. Closing the window now does not bring back what was stolen, but it is still important to do so anyway because it can stop another burglary.

So if you are dealing with a poor health condition, what window of opportunity did you leave open that made it possible? What important nutritional supplements did you have in the house but were not taking? What stress management tools do you know that you were not practicing? What common sense principles or practices or habits that you already know about were you ignoring?

Even when the health problem is obvious as with a broken bone from an accident, that accident may have only occurred because the person was not centered, paying attention or distracted, perhaps because of worries, or lack of sleep. Maybe he was partying late, burning the candles at both ends, or upset about something.

In short, health can never be separated from the other aspects of a person’s life. And healing always needs to consider the bigger picture, not only regarding good basic self care but also mental, emotional and spiritual issues as well.

Dowsing can help locate what is out of balance, what habit, diet or lifestyle changes need to be made. It can pinpoint what mental and emotional issues need to be addressed, and where, when and with whom they arose. Dowsing can set up a priority list of where to start, and which actions/modalities will have the most beneficial effect. It can through intention remove blocks to healing including detrimental beliefs and judgments. It can indicate the degree of progress in resolving problems and stuck energies. 

In short, dowsing has phenomenal potential in identifying underlying issues and tracking their resolution. It uncovers what is hidden and infinitely speeds up the process leading to faster healing time.

Understanding Illness from the Stress Connection

The Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual Components of Disease

When people think of stress, they are normally only considering those things that they find aggravating or upsetting. They are not considering the cumulative impact of a host of other factors–even little things that over time add up and overwhelm the body’s ability to process, detoxify, rectify or cope.

A more accurate view of stress may be ANYTHING (physical, chemical, electrical/magnetic, spiritual as well as mental and emotional) that consumes more energy than it brings in. Consequently, even some foods and happy events are stress inducing.

When more energy goes out than comes in to more than compensate, illness occurs.

 

Things that stress or disrupt the body system includes pathogens, allergens, toxins in the food, air or water, and EMF (electrical magnetic frequency pollution). They include pharmaceuticals including antibiotics, vaccines, and even approved medical and dental procedures or treatments. Dry-cleaning or household chemicals, personal care products, microwaved foods, processed or GMO (genetically modified) foods, food additives, heavy metals, city water, chemicals such as chorine or fluoride all stress the body as does heavy physical exertion or workouts. Cell phones, cell phone towers,  and EMF (electrical magnetic frequency) pollution are a problem. Then there are the pesticides we might use ourselves or which have been sprayed on the foods we eat or the foods that the animals we eat have ingested. Amalgam dental fillings and root canals, x-rays, chemotherapy and radiation air pollution, chemtrails–all take a toll on the body. Eventually, it is too much to handle and the body breaks down.

 

Here are the key points:

Stress causes every illness, and every illness creates more stress.

It is both the chicken and the egg. It is a self-perpetuating loop.

Illness results from more stress coming in than the body can handle.

Think of it as a bounced energy check–more energy is being demanded from you and going out than you have the reserves to cover.

It takes more energy to heal than it does to stay healthy in the first place.

It is not as easy as putting back the amount that caused you to bounce. Just as with an overdrawn checking account, there are fines to pay, and time to clean up the mess.

Stress is neutral–it can be from something “good”

For example, getting married, having a baby, moving into your dream home or job, getting ready to go on vacation are all very demanding, hectic and therefore, ‘stressful’. Stress is not just from something “bad”, such as the loss of a job or relationship, or routine annoying as with the daily commute.

A ‘stressor’ is anything that demands energy to handle/process.

Like a checking account, there needs to be sufficient reserves. When the energy reserves go into the “red”, illness results.

The final stressor that pushes the body into illness can be just one more thing too many.

It can even something very minor that you used to handle with ease before–the “straw that broke the camel’s back.”

Stress can come from:

• poisons in the air: inside or outside pollution, “sick building” syndrome, smoke, dry cleaning chemicals, household cleaning chemicals, perfumes, synthetic pillows or mattress 
• poisons from what touches your skin–chemicals or dyes in hair, nail, skin products, cosmetics, clothing
• allergens
• foods that are difficult to digest or food combinations that make digestion more difficult
• poisons in the water--chloride, flouride, bacteria, chemicals, heavy metals
• poisons in food–sugar, additives, coloring, preservatives, pesticides, as well as medicines or genetically modified foods fed to the animals we eat
• medicines and medical/dental treatments or procedures
• time stress and multi-tasking
• frustration
• unhealed emotional issues
• worry, fear, anger, grief, and other upset
• negative beliefs and judgments, such as this shouldn’ t be happening, people should/shouldn’ t ___, or this is bad/wrong/awful.
• too much or too little of anything: sleep, food, water, silence, sunshine, time alone, recognition, money, responsibility, activity, play
• too little meaningful interaction with people or with use of your abilities
• lack of meaning or purpose in life
 • lack of connection to others and larger spiritual dimension                 • lack of balance between work, rest and play, being alone versus being with people, sound versus silence, mental versus physical, material versus spiritual, inside versus outside  

√ The body knows how to heal itself. When given what it needs, it always moves the body towards health.

The body needs energy to stay healthy and to heal if it is sick. 

Whatever you do to relieve stress frees up energy for the body to stay healthy or to heal.

Whatever adds to your stress makes it more likely that you will get sick and it will be harder to heal.

The body breaks down at it’s weakest link.

The weak link may be genetic, or from a prior illness, injury. It may stem from overuse or abuse of certain organs or muscles. But it may also be from emotional/ mental issues or personality/family patterns.

Hard work doesn’t kill you. Frustration does.

 Work that provides meaning, purpose, and an outlet for one’s gifts, talents and creativity energizes the body. Work that is just a paycheck without providing recognition, usage of one’s abilities or creativity, or a way of learning or developing further, drains energy.

Stress on one system helps to relax another.

If you are consistently working your muscles, do something mental as a hobby. For example, do crossword puzzles or quiz games, take a class, read a book. If your work is primarily mental, do something physical to relax–hike, garden, build cabinets, ride horses, ski, golf, etc.

√ You are not upset by what happens to you, but by what you think about what happens to you. It is the JUDGEMENT that is the problem.

There is the ACTIVATING EVENT– that which you think is stressful.
Then there are the BELIEFS ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED, which are the real cause for
the EMOTIONAL CONSEQUENCES.

 

BASIC RULE:

Emotions follow thought!

Change a belief, and you change the emotion.

Change how you look at things and be free!

 

The Three Stages of Stress 

Hans Selye, considered the ‘Father’ of Stress Management, said that there are three stages of stress leading to breakdown. He called it the General Adaptation Syndrome.

1. The Alarm Reaction:

At this stage, symptoms first appear–sweaty palms, perspiration, butterflies in the stomach, anxiety, rapid heart, etc. Next, a person enters 

2. The Stage of Resistance:

Here the stress symptoms may disappear and resistance rises above normal. The person appears to have control of the situation. He is “handling” things. The person is coping. Finally, the person enters

3. The Stage of Exhaustion:

Now, the original symptoms of the alarm reaction return irreversibly and exhaustion of the body and death may result. The person cannot get rid of the symptoms, but must wait to heal, and replenish himself as much as possible in the meantime. The breakdown may be caused by just one more thing, no matter how insignificant that one thing may be, it is too much to bear–”the straw that broke the camel’s back.” The person is unable to cope, and can only rest and wait to build up his reserves of energy again.

Basic Requirements for Healing

1. Find a way to bring more energy into the body.

This will include more and better sleep, good nutition, clean air, being in beautiful surroundings or nature, being with people you love and care about, doing what you love, happy music, fun, laughter, sunshine, exercise, Reiki or other energy work, prayer and a deep spiritual life.

2. Find a way to stop energy from leaking out

Eliminate as many of the multiple stressors as you can, heal your pain pile, and get rid or reduce the energy draining activiites or people in your life.

The Relationship Between Fear and Depression, Breath and Posture

How You Breathe Can Lessen Fear 

A recent study by Christina Zelano at Northwestern University indicates that breathing in through the nose as opposed to the mouth helps a person to respond more quickly to fear and knowing this can help you to deal with it. 

“We can potentially use this fact to our advantage. For example if you’re in a dangerous environment with fearful stimuli, our data indicates that you can respond more quickly if you are inhaling through your nose.” ~Christina Zelano

But, what I would add to this is that it is NOT ENOUGH to just breathe through the nose, but to BREATHE DEEPLY and FULLY. 

My understanding is that the first reaction of fear is to freeze the breathing mechanism – in other words, to hold the breath. This is the deer in the headlights syndrome while you are evaluating what to do (run/fight or stay in freeze). The fastest way I have found to discharge that fear is then to deliberately take a deep, big breath. Followed by other deep, regulated breaths, the mind quiets down.

Deep Breathing Lessens Depression & Fatigue Too!

As a former classical singer with NYC Opera and elsewhere, I noticed that deep breathing whether through the nose or mouth through the process of singing, dancing will process out the debilitating emotions of fear and depression as well as fatigue. While music also plays a significant part, I am sure this significant improvement has much to do with the increased oxygen reaching the brain. Classical singers while singing, for example, breathe four times as deeply as people at rest. Increased breathing and oxygen intake through any form of exercise will put you in a better frame of mind and in a more emotionally balanced state where you are able to think more clearly and make more rational decisions. 

Posture is Important 

Deep breathing is aided by an erect posture that allows the rib cage to expand. Then a person must train themselves to keep the chest still while breathing  deeper down that fully engages the diaphragm. This means that the belly moves in and out with each breath.

Good posture makes better breathing possible, and greater oxygenation of the brain allows a better processing of emotions. But posture is by itself relevant to mood and energy levels. Multiple studies indicate that good posture, holding the head erect and eyes looking forward rather than down [downward facing eyes puts a person into their emotions] lessens depression and fatigue! There are multiple such articles cited on the internet indicating that simply choosing to alter body posture to a more upright position is a quick shortcut to improve mood and energy levels.

How to Avoid Burnout

As an Entrepreneur, I am aware of the stress caused by wearing all the hats in a business. The extensive range of information and skills needed for each, the time required, and the stress of the learning curve are DAUNTING! As a result, work hours can interfere with what should be time for rest and renewal leading to burnout and illness.

But it is not hard work or long hours per se that cause burnout. If you are passionate about what you do, that passion feeds your spirit and energizes you even when working long hours. Burnout is caused when more energy is being withdrawn from your energy reserves by multiple stressors than is coming in through rest and renewal. Those stressors include anything that consume energy—bad food, bad habits, too little sleep, toxicity, not just the frustrations, overwhelm, and other mental and emotional issues. 

Burnout is simply going into the red with a bounced energy account. And as with a checking account, it only takes one cent to do that. Furthermore, once you overdraw, it is not a simple matter of just putting the penny back. There are fines to pay. So it takes more money to undo the overdraft. And it takes more energy to undo the damage of an energy overdraft.

While it is important to have multiple ways of reducing stress so that you are not leaking energy, stress management is not the whole answer. Putting  together a well-rounded life that feeds your spirit and enhances

  • overall health, 
  • provides happiness,
  • connection with others,
  • fulfillment, meaning and purpose,

will give you the internal resources and increased life force to deal with the ups and downs in life as they come. And from that place examine and challenge your beliefs, thoughts, judgments, assumptions that underlie so much stress, and commit to a regular stress management practice. All together, this will give you the energy reserves to not just cope but to thrive.

What is stress?

Stress is a demand upon your system for energy. A stressor is whatever is requiring energy from you to process or deal with mentally, emotionally, physically, or even spiritually. This includes preparing for even happy events (holidays, vacations, weddings), doing your usual routine as well as having to cope with extra, unexpected additional expenses, problems, malfunction, delays, toxicity, poisons in food, water, air, cleaning or personal care products, allergens, EMF (electro magnetic frequency), geopathic zones, noise, and overstimulation.

Interestingly, we need a certain amount of stress to challenge us to learn, grow, and to explore new dimensions of both ourselves and our world. Insufficient stress creates stagnation, boredom, depression, and mental/ emotional/ spiritual rot–yes, rot! Growth requires a stimulus, a reason to get off the couch.  It is all about finding the proper balance. See my previous blog entitled “Stress Can Be Good for You?”.

Understanding the Stress Equation

As with the previous analogy of a bank account, there have to be energy reserves to cover all of the demands placed upon you.

  • Demands upon your energy have to be adequately met by both your reserves and new energy being regenerated.
  • What comes in has to cover what goes out or a bounced check situation arises causing breakdown in physical or mental health.

The 3 Stages of Stress

  1. Alarm Reaction – In this initial stage, you experience symptoms such as sweaty palms, tension or tightness in muscles, holding your breath, rapid pulse, indigestion, insomnia. 
  2. Stage of Resistance – Whereas in this stage, the stress symptoms go away, and you appear to be doing fine. You seem to have adapted, and have a ‘handle’ on it. There is a danger during this adaptive phase because you may become cocky and stop doing those things you need to do to take good care of yourself and to resolve your issues on a regular basis. Consequently, as things build up, you tap too heavily into your energy reserves.
  3. Stage of Exhaustion – this stage is where you actually break down. It can be caused by something minor–just one more thing too many (the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’). All the stress symptoms come back but are not easily dismissed, and illness or even death results.

What to do about it?

The basic strategy as outlined below is as follows:

  1. find ways to get energy into your system 
  2. stop energy leaking out
  3. establish regular routines to do the above.

How to get energy into your system 

You get energy into your system by:

  1. improving your overall physical health
  2. improving your overall happiness and connectedness
  3. creating or focusing upon the meaning and purpose in your life
  4. connecting to your spiritual and internal resources

First, Improve your overall physical health

  • Sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Nourishing, balanced nutrition
  • Healthy Gut allows you to digest and assimilate what you eat
    • ingest: probiotics, yogurt, kefir, naturally fermented foods such as naturally (not commercial) sauerkraut and kimchee, kombucha, and fermentable fibers (yam, sweet potatoes, yucca, and whole oranges (with fiber), Jerusalem artichokes, lentils) butter, garlic, dark chocolate with 70% cacao or more
    • eliminate as much as possible: sugar and processed foods; grains unless non-GMO, pesticide free and specially prepared; wheat and industrial seed oils that cause leaky gut; pesticide ingestion from any food or drink; antibiotics and other medications such as birth control, steroids, antacids and NSAIDS (see http://www.nsaidslist.com) such as aspirin that are taken as anti-inflammatory/pain relief medications; and parasites
  • Deep breathing, singing
  • Exercise including dancing, yoga, and anything to balance energy flow, and any movement or physical labor
  • Bodywork
  • Energy medicine -there are many modalities, but here are a few more: Reiki, Source Energy Medicine, Donna Eden’s Daily Energy Routine (see Resources at the end)

What can you do today to take of your physical health?

Second, Improve your overall happiness and connectedness

  • Laughter
  • Love, hugs and emotional support
  • Community/network
  • Prayer
  • Anything inspirational
  • Anything that feeds your spirit or makes you happy
  • Having fun
  • Nature
  • Healing music – sacred, calming, hemisync, happy

What can you do today to connect and enjoy life?

Third, Create or focus upon the meaning and purpose in your life.

  • Do you have a reason to bound out of bed in the morning with excitement to get started? 
    • This could be your job, a volunteer activity, or a hobby.
  • Can you see how something you are doing now is or could be doing now could help someone else?
  • How can you be of service?  
    • This could be any act of kindness or compassion to a person or animal, a phone call to someone you care about, just affirming your love and belief in another, or perhaps just listening or being there.

What can you do today help someone? How can your work serve?

Fourth, Connecting to your spiritual and internal resources

  • Prayer, meditation.
  • The Infinite Intelligence Process – tapping into the part of you that knows more than you do consciously. 
    • “There is a part of me that knows ___ and is assisting me now to ___ with grace and ease.”

When is a good time for you to check inside with your inner guidance?

How to stop energy leaking out

  • Detoxification
  • Resolving emotional issues – current and past
  • Restoring gut flora
  • Daily stress management–EFT, self hypnosis, Infinite Intelligence Process, etc.
  • Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Goal setting
  • Setting and and focusing on priorities
  • Shifting beliefs,
    • play devil’s advocate – look for the positive evidence, the positive ‘whys or why nots’
    • “What if __ could work?”
    • “What if I could ___?”
    • “What if ___ (the negative authority figure/person) was wrong?”
    • “What is the worst that could happen?”
  • Turn a challenge/problem into an opportunity or object of curiosity
    • “Where is the opportunity in this?”
    • “How can I turn this into a blessing?”
    • “What positive thing/s can I learn from this to be ___ (better/healthier/stronger/more successful)?”
  • Focus on helpful thoughts to shift your attitude
  • Gratitude
  • Notice what is with detachment – Adopt an attitude of curiosity
    • “That’s interesting.”
  • Notice what is , without taking it personally
    • It’s probably not about you.
  • Notice what is without jumping to judgment or unproven, upsetting interpretations of events
    • “How can I look at this in a way that doesn’t bother me nearly as much?”
  • Pick your battles
  • Focus your energy where it is going to do some good
  • Know your limits and make peace with that
    • “I do what I can. I let go of the rest.”
  • Get help
  • Look for resources
    • “Who do I know that could deal with this better/differently and how would they approach/handle it?”
    • “Who do I know that can help me with this?”
    • “What help/resources do I need to resolve this and how to I get them?”
  • Balance – between work, rest and recreation, between being inside and being outside, being with people and being alone, between having silence or quiet time and sensory stimulation

What is something you can do to stop leaking energy physically? What can you do to stop leaking energy mentally and emotionally? What can help you today?

Basic Guideline:

Upsetting emotions leak energy. Happy or peaceful emotions add. 

While some emotions can come from physical conditions, most emotions come from thoughts such as how we interpret what is going on. What are we thinking in our own mind about the people or events in our lives? Are we saying that they are wrong, bad, awful?  Interpretations can be wrong. They can be based on incomplete or faulty evidence. Thoughts and the fixed beliefs that form around them can be challenged and changed.

Learn from the Past

If you have experienced burnout before, take precautionary measures now to avoid it happening again by addressing your areas of vulnerability. 

What are the things you have done that have caused you to burn out in the past?

What are the things you have not done that have caused you to burn out?

If you think about the things you must have or do to avoid burnout, and if you know the things that do or have made a positive difference in your energy level and functioning in the past, then make a commitment to do them now on a regular basis. 

What are those key things for you?

But don’t try to go from doing nothing, to trying to make massive changes all at once. But do do something. Take a step, and keep it going. Then do something else that makes sense. This is a process of creating a new lifestyle, a new way of living on a daily basis, not something that you do once in a while and forget about it.

Establish Routines for a Healthy Lifestyle

Start slow, but start somewhere

  • Set up a morning routine or ritual that starts the day off focusing on the most important use of your time and energy—the priorities of the day. 

What might be a helpful, doable, morning routine?

  • Create an after work routine that brings balance, fun, meaning and fulfillment
    • connect with people you care about (dinner with friends or family, reading a bedtime story to your kids) 
    • do something for fun or a change of pace

What might be a helpful, doable, afternoon or early evening routine?

  • Create a routine or ritual before sleep
    • do something to help you to relax (hot shower, a slow bath, listening to soothing music)
    • do something to gain perspective from any stress of the day or anything upsetting on the news (meditating, journaling, reflection)
    • acknowledge your achievements
    • take a moment to focus on gratitude and the blessings of your life. 

What might be a helpful, doable, evening routine before bed?

What helps me is a system I call the Infinite Intelligence Process. You can read about it here. on my blog: Accessing More—Tapping Into the Wisdom and Resources Within.
