Our healthcare system is in deeper trouble than the government’s program will fix. We already spend more per capita than any other country in the world and consume over eighty percent of the world’s drugs, yet our health care system ranks twenty-eighth in many basic areas.
As much as we say we want health and happiness, virtually everyone has barriers to them – like trying to sail a boat with the sails hoisted and positioned properly, but with hidden anchors that keep it from moving. Until the anchors are identified and cut loose, health and happiness can’t sail. Our healthcare system rarely attends to these anchors
I asked a cardiologist, “You give a lot of good advice to patients with cardiovascular problems – what to eat, how to exercise and keep stress down. What percentage actually follows your advice?” He paused thoughtfully, and said quite sadly, “Very few.”
What good is medical advice if it’s not used? Medical journals have had frequent articles through the years about how to get “patient compliance”. The key issue that’s not addressed, however, is why people don’t use it. What are the anchors?
There’s mounting evidence of a high correlation between unresolved traumas or other painful experiences in childhood, and the onset of a serious illness in early adulthood. Further, if you have a traumatic experience in your adult life that’s not cleared, you’re likely to get a little sickness immediately following it – or more serious illness within a year.
How can trauma affect your health?
A disturbing experience takes blood flow away from the stomach, needed to digest nutrients in food, and sends it to the arms and legs to engage in fight or flight.
Without processing needed nutrients, the immune system becomes weaker. In a state of threat, you secrete an abundance of stress hormones, taxing the adrenal glands and weakening you further
Past traumas encode information in the brain and body, memories of the painful experience that become reactivated over and over when anything presents itself that’s in any way similar to the original trauma.
As a result, the excessive flow of stress hormones continues and continues, depleting the serotonin in the brain, causing depression – and research shows a strong connection between depression and illness.
Also of great concern is the fact that when you have uncleared traumas, you tend to attract a replay of them in various areas of your life, continuing the overload of stress.
Further, when we’ve had painful childhood experiences, we draw conclusions that affect us profoundly. They congeal into negative core beliefs – “I don’t deserve to have a healthy and happy life.” “It’s not safe to have a happy and healthy life.” Even, “I’m not worthy of having a happy and healthy life.” There are many others – and we also develop beliefs from our tribe.
When these beliefs are in place, they work like software in your computer, only capable of printing out what’s in the program. If they’re not changed, they’ll demand confirmation, strongly contradicting your conscious wish to be healthy and happy, keeping you from doing what you need to do – and thinking what you need to think – to be happy and healthy.
Delete, delete, delete.
There’s a way out of this bind, one rarely dealt with by medical practitioners, allopathic or alternative. If these traumas aren’t identified and cleared, “patient compliance” is virtually impossible .
These barriers to healing must be cleared to be healthy and happy. The good news is that just as you can press the “delete” button on an unwanted program or document in your computer, there are now methods available such as meridian energy point or bilateral brain stimulation that have the potential to clear these barriers and allow abundant healing, health, and happiness in your mind and body – your mindbody.
