Initially we help people with their suffering and through detoxification and restorative principles while also reducing the burden of stress imposed by the aberrant lifestyle it is possible to flatten the physiological responses that are called disease Degenerative processes can be reversed. like cancer or autoimmune dysregulation.3/25/2010 Clinical Practice Opportunity to Transform Lives and Ease Suffering The healing process is opportunistic in that it waits for chaos as an entry way for wholesome reparative process that begins with a problem The challenge is to assist the patient to shift from a relatedness to the disease process to a sense of fascination with being fully alive. increased libido. in that with the latter after discontinuity of therapeutic devices everything just goes back to the way it was – not the goal 3 . oftentimes the only way to move through the healing process is with the encouragement of the more subjective aspects of the patients presentation like ‘feeling better’ As practitioners if we are not connecting the dots between physiology and state of mind or attitude we are not helping people awaken to the shift from disease orientation to a focus on vitality Indeed as a practitioner often times my confidence in long-term chronic degenerative cases wherein the progress is slow to observe arises from the apparent improvement in quality of life and clarity of mind that is more immediate In a similar way even when apparent improvement is observed in a degenerative condition with no outward elevation of attitude I may feel concerned as to whether profound transformative healing is really underway Indeed there is a difference between healing and therapy. and general functionality can be increased – all this looks macroscopically like increased energy. better disposition. and a more prolific creativity In the healing process we must “seize the day” and help people learn about the increase in life that they are experiencing while they are healing their disease Clinical Practice Opportunity to Transform Lives and Ease Suffering Especially with chronic severe imbalances.

Selective attention to these distorted thoughts is the norm for the depressed patients. regardless of the cause (e.g. social). Experience has shown that organ functions contribute to the biochemical status that gives rise to healthy or less healthy thinking and cognitive choice making It is possible to move from the organ to the state of mind or from the attitude back to the organ imbalance – thus the practitioner never need be at a loss for the potential to help shift the experience For example fear promotes anticipatory anxiety (activating the dorsal raphe’ nucleus which in turn primes the limbic system for panic (locus coeruleus) generating a feedforward cycle via the amygdala and locus coeruleus and HPA axis developing legitimate panic and subsequent depression So anything that can be done to influence these systems and neurological cascades can assist an evolution in state of mind and perception – this can be the trick to shift experience – to feel differently is to think new thoughts Seven Pillars always help Without intricate assessment a number of basic modulations can be introduced that shift the state of mind. without any outward counseling Endocrine pillar support of the HPA axis and individual glands Glycemic Management with cortisol and insulin down-regulation Bioterrain support with mineral repletion reducing acidosis and this promoting parasympathetic nervous states can offset anxiety Inflammatory pillar support and food allergy reduction will shift the cytokine cascades and HPA state of readiness for crisis Immune pillar support liberates the oppressed immune system and cytokine congestion alerting states of reactivity and malaise Digestive pillar support and pre and probiotic encouragement can result in reduction of leaky gut syndrome and subsequent stress – generally enhanced gut lining health results in a state of wellbeing that defies the circumstantial conditional world Six of the seven indentified pillars can make a direct contribution to state of mind To see this in practice. nutritional. distortions in thinking (e.
