As Biological practitioners we diligently work to naturally address the primary stressors to the bio system of the person who is experiencing illness or attempting to maintain good health. It is essential in this approach that the natural healing ability of the body is set free, to a large degree from heavy metals, chemicals, scar interruption, dental infection and dead teeth, intestinal dysbiosis, trace mineral and fatty acid deficiencies, food allergies and unsupportived psycho-emotional traumas and their imprints.
Of all the burdens needing to be addressed for a client it is the emotional aspect that Biological practitioners may feel the least equipped to assist in. There is no debate that a person’s emotional state of mind, emotional congruency in their life and the emotional patterning that have been imprinted upon us, permeates the individual on all levels.
The vast majority of our actions and reactions are triggered by the unconscious mind. Traumas real or perceived create long lasting neurological reaction and effect the autonomic nervous system as well as the hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal axes. This over time can produce a wide range of physical and psycho-emotional manifestations. The most common being unexplainable body pain and fatigue. In our office we have a saying that we teach to our clients. “That which has been emotionally suppressed eventually becomes physically expressed.” That is not to say that clients are intentionally suppressing their feelings and thus becoming sick. It is a natural reaction for a person when experiencing a trauma to go through several stages of disassociation. This disassociation is a vital part of our survival mechanism; however, it can drive the event into the autonomic nervous system as an alarm trigger for future presentations of similar events. This then becomes a triggering mechanism loop for unconscious reactions.
How do we make the distinction between stress and trauma? Stress is like a slow leak of emotional poison and is almost always experienced over a long duration of time with the person generally having some control over it. If my job is to stressful, I can quit. If my relationships are stressful, I can change them. If I am stressed do to an overwhelming schedule, I can manage my life differently. Trauma is more like a quick injection of poison and is almost always experienced in a short duration of time with high emotion, accompanied by a lack of control. A good example of this difference can be understood using the example of a car accident. The crash at an intersection is traumatic, instant, violent, highly emotional and with no sense of control for the victims. This can leave us feeling nervous driving through intersections for months or years after the event. Being interviewed by the police at the scene regarding how the crash happened and who is at fault is stressful but not generally traumatic.
Outside of traumas, it is the imprints we receive as children from our societal immersion and our parental experience that seem to have the strongest programming and are reinforced within the nervous system over and over. If for example mom and dad divorce when we are young, we may become highly emotional and set us up for a sense of distrust later in our adult lives when it comes to commitments in relationships. Our unconscious mind may sound the alarm as we fall in love and remind us that we can’t really trust anyone will stay with us. If dad constantly reinforces the idea that as a son you can’t live up to his expectations then a great sense of failure may take over and lead to apathy and low self-esteem. Abuse, neglect, abandonment and other childhood experiences lay the groundwork for future representations of these traumas and stressors becoming physically expressed. You don’t have to have been abused to have deep and long lasting imprints that no longer serve us in a positive way.
So how best can we as Biological practitioners address these toxic and confused imprints of information that no longer support our client’s present lives and manifest into pain or illness. There are techniques that are very effective in accessing these synaptic pathways. The Ceres Mother Tincture remedies have wonderful pshyco emotion properties to them that can gently help release these disruptive emotional triggers.
Ceres Passion Flora for example has wonderful properties that help open up, release and heal heart emotions such as feeling lost, abandoned broken hearted. Taraxacum does wonders for detoxifying the liver as well as helping elevate unexplained or uncontrolled anger. Each of the Ceres remedies have valuable emotional aspects to them that can greatly assist a person moving past and releasing these old emotional traumas and their patterned imprints.
The staple to resolving this trauma used in our office is the Emotional Release Technique. There are also natural remedies and devices that have wonderful psycho-emotional properties to them that can gently help release these disruptive emotional triggers. Yoga therapy is very effective at releasing body memories as well as meditation, deep breathing, and reconnecting with nature and the natural magnetic frequencies which helps reestablishing our circadian rhythm, such as iBrain. There are numerous options to releasing our emotional stressors and traumas thus allowing us to begin to respond to life rather than re-acting due to old programs.
It is important to help our clients understand the difference between stress and trauma and how our emotional life and its early imprints as well as past traumas have an impact on our current health. It is vital as healthcare practitioners we help the body release unsupportived neuro-emotional programs without delving into the world of phycology. The body has a memory and that memory can be accessed and elevated from the system.
