Nature knows what it is doing.
Time for you to understand it.
Here is some of my history to help explain how I gained the education to which the programs share with you, and the reason why you will not have to spend years in therapy!
Hi everyone. Now to the fun of sharing some very important history with you. I am a Naturopathic Psychotherapist, and very privileged to spend my life nourishing and saving lives. Actually I wonder if you know that so are you!
In 1988 I completed my Bachelor of Naturopathy, to which in that era you were taught and expected to know not only the core health sciences, but also all the various realms of Natural therapy available. I was devoted to say the least, and finished the four year course a year ahead of schedule. Yes, I was single!
Why did I want to be such a therapist? Simple, I have always enjoyed the playground of life and its various hobbies available and holidays into the outback countryside. I have enjoyed using my hands and mind to pull apart anything mechanical, engines, electrical devices etc to understand their means of operation, and to see if I could fix or get them back together. Life offered so much to learn about and play with, and finally by the age of eleven I was managing to put back together what I had pulled apart.
By the age of twenty three I was bored with being an A grade Electrician, but had no idea what else I wanted to do, and so it was time to feed my interest for travelling Australia, but who knew it was going to take four years, and every repairing skill I had ever gained to that point of my life. Who also knew the newly acquaintance of some surfers I met whilst paddling and waiting for a decent wave whilst living in Mooloolabah Queensland, were going to suggest that I tag along with them to a place called a health food shop, to try a vegetable cake (carrot) and something else you would only expect to find a dung beetle consuming in a cow paddock, and to which was filled with grass…okay….it had a real name, Alfa alfa in Pitta bread. I can remember thinking “What?!! Is there some new farm language hitting the coast, and a scarce source of livestock the further you travelled north? I had heard of the term ‘GRASS’ being used a little more liberally, but for some strange reason I just had to try and work out what this new culture I had run into was all about, especially as they continually drew reference to such lawn clippings and mung beans being slid within the thin wholemeal excuse for bread, supposedly assists your health. And that was the word I needed to hear!!
When you are finding life to offer so much to learn and do, I believed that anything that has your mind actively questioning and learning something that supposedly keeps you healthy, that was the new frontier for me. Three years later I was sitting in the classroom of the first lecture of my Bachelor of Naturopathy. Go figure!!!
Though more importantly, how did I get from there to what I can offer you now?
As I headed into the field of Natural therapy, the intention of treating the cause of health conditions drove me deeper and deeper into trying to understand the mechanisms of health, and not just settle for the typical “Clean them out and fill them up” approach which plagued most natural therapist’s minds, as they consistently claimed that “people are simply toxic and lacking in nutrition” and would also use nature’s form of chemical therapy via a clean diet, herbs, tissue salts, vitamins, and electrical stimulation or inhibition of the meridians, and the hidden wonders of homoeopathy…and yes the list goes on, and to which I learnt them all. Us natural therapists also spoke of harnessing and using nature’s ‘life force’ and giving more of it to the body!! (excuse me whilst I turn my head for a moment and laugh, as no one would explain what that was, nor showed it to us!! Though, I will add that I actually do now know what the ‘life force’ is! It’s no big deal, and if I get the chance I’ll explain it to you at a later date!!)
But please don’t take what I have just been stating about natural therapies, to mean that I do not recognise the fact that the body can become toxic, and I do recognise the value of a healthy diet, herbs, tissue salts, vitamins, minerals, etc etc, and I can even explain the mode by which homoeopathy works and why its correct prescription is so difficult but worthy of its place in science, but as I worked my way through the clinical use of all such common modalities of Natural therapy, nothing amongst them supplied me with the level of understanding of the cause of disease that I demanded I needed to find. In fact, I could not claim to know the cause of one of the health conditions we were typically treating as Naturopaths!!! No, not the cause, and just settling for the idea of the body having become toxic, or falling victim to a bug, feel well short of truly explaining how and why it became sick, especially when other people on the same diet, and in the same environment and so on, were fine. And yes of course I knew genetics can play their role, but we have all heard it said that you can have a genetic weakness, that can be triggered! Well, even that subject I know far more about now days.
Where did I eventually find the education, the answers I had been looking for?
I must say it really was not that long into my professional clinical career and experience as a Naturopath that I recognised psychological stress to be playing a major role in the process of disease, and of course we are well and truly told so now days, though all the information I could find published on that aspect of health science I could easily point out to be full of contradictions and consequent inaccuracies, and clinically not displaying to be fact. And so, thirty years ago I began my own clinical research into gaining an accurate understanding of the correlation between the psychological and physiological realms (the mind body connection), and what Nature was trying to let us know.
Within a few months of investigating people with the same health conditions, yes only a few months of investigating people with the same particular health condition to see what they had in common psychologically compared to those without that particular health, I had found the Nature of the correlation. I found why the mind, the psychological realm, affected a particular physical organ or structure, rather than a different one! I found which part of the psychological realm governed which particular health condition was triggered. And the formula for understanding it is very easy!! And no, psychosomatic illness is not caused by the sympathetic nervous system as we are often told is the case. No physical structure, function, in the body causes disease, including the nervous system or the hormonal system, as they play their valuable role. For any organ or physical structure to be playing a role in disease, its normal function has been perverted by some cause! It is not the cause! And I should add that it is not our emotions that cause health conditions, because emotions are actually ‘Belief system' initiated healthy physiological responses, and hence do not cause disease! ( You will understand why that is so when you do learn which aspect of the psychological realm's 'Belief system' does govern which particular physical structure become dysfunctional via psychological issues.).
My Certificate tells of being a Naturopath, someone that understands and uses the laws of Nature to treat Nature (treat your body). Clinical experience and research has taught me that Nature has far more to teach than just physiology, as its physiology physically displays the process of life, and when you understand the correlation between the psychological and physical realms, and can show that in disease our physical realm is mimicking our psychological realm, mimicking our conclusions about the process of life, you then understand Nature wants us to direct our attention to focus on understanding LIFE!
A therapist’s role is to explain to patients that their health condition, Nature, wants them to learn some specific lessons about the process of life, and the particular health condition tells of which particular aspect of life the topic pertains to, plus it is the therapists role to explain the specific lesson to you. But of course the typical courses training therapists do not cover teaching the therapists such lessons, but rather incorrectly inform any therapists interested in counselling, that such therapists are simply facilitators and not teachers! Big mistake!
Where am I up to now? To date I have identified the psychological trigger to over a hundred physical and mental health conditions, and yes I have run many courses, published a number of books, and of course had many of my peers question and check the accuracy of my information, and as yet not one upon taking the time to learn, understand and clinical test it, has ever claimed it to be incorrect. They are always astounded by its depth and accuracy.
Though guess what is probably the greatest benefit of understanding the psychological cause of health conditions? Well, when you come to understand the psychological triggers to health conditions, you become very interested in also learning the cause of people having such incorrect thoughts/beliefs, where are such thoughts coming from? And that subject leads you deeper into investigating which particular philosophies and concepts on life are creating such thoughts/issues that trigger the health conditions! Yes, knowing which thoughts cause health conditions, directs you to recognising the underlying incorrect core psychological framework that fuels society’s psychological stress via having created the incorrect beliefs causing the health condition.
The mind body connection enables you to understand which understandings on life are correct and why, plus also which are not correct and why!!! Our physical body is an example of life, the process of life, which you will learn is actually a ‘development and survival process’. The energy fields created by any thoughts (beliefs) which do not match the development and survival process of life, will not be in tune with, and will pervert, the energy fields that make up the physical chemistry of our physical cells, and so initiates disease.
If you understand what I am claiming, you will know that I am stating that through researching the mind body connection and what Nature displays for us about which beliefs cause disease, I have found nature's education on what life is all about, and is the education my patients require!
So, why do most people receiving the typical psychological therapy available, remain in therapy for years?
Answer: Because the concepts they are currently being taught, although sounding lovely, warm and fuzzy, are usually reinforcing the same underlying incorrect principles already responsible for the creation people’s issues!! But of course the therapists and gurus teaching such, do not know that, because their current understanding of the cause of psychological stress is one level short of covering the CORE FACTOR at the seat of all psychological stress. And they most definitely as yet do not have an accurate account of the mind body connection. If they did they would never ever claim that ‘life is about Balance’, as they would know that such an incorrect belief is only one psychological step from triggering cancer!! Plus they would not hold the opinion that they are simply Facilitators rather than Teachers. They would instead clearly understand that not only does the physical body displays that life is a ‘development process’ rather than a case of - ‘go within and reconnect to what you already know, but also find that their patients do not know the real lesson in wisdom, the truths, that explain the process of development. The Truths are often so different than most therapists and gurus understand them to be. Most do not even know what a person’s value is correctly measured by and why? Ask them?!!! They will not state what it is , and show that it is the same for everyone regardless of a person's level of development. They will instead incorrectly chastise EGO, due to the fact they do not know the actual specific valuable role we all perform. The reason they do not know it is because their incorrect concept of 'go within and reconnect' etc, completely contradicts the true understanding of the 'Development Process, plus understanding how such development takes place. Understanding the Development process, enables you to fully understand the role that Nature, which includes our physical body and mind, plays!
The psychological education required for addressing the mode the body is running in during physical and mental health conditions, is an education that upgrades your understanding of what life is about (Reality), plus the lessons that address the various issues you hold towards various aspects of life, the development process.
Yes, you need to be shown precisely which incorrect understanding of ‘what life is about’ society teaches us, and is at the seat of your issues and health conditions, plus how and why it is incorrect and creates the psychological stress and health conditions. You then are able to easily, when shown, understand the correct concept on what ‘life is about’, and consequently also then understand the lessons that address the various issues you hold.
And guess what, such an accurate education has nothing to do with telling you to slow down, back off, stop trying to control, forget about goals, create more goal, create balance, be your authentic self, stop self-sabotaging yourself, and love love love love and love etc etc, as such advice is rubbish and are not lessons in wisdom at all, and do not address the cause of people’s issues. The lessons in wisdom that Nature demands you learn are far more wise, interesting, inspirational and revealing than the information most courses are teaching to the public and therapists, which claim we just need to be more positive, better decision makers, more loving, less influenced, find our path, go within, avoid our mind and physical realm, start being ourselves, want less, take control, stop controlling, “AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHhhhhhh” so much crap!!! Nothing of any true substance in understanding the specific Nature of the cause of the particular health condition, and the lesson it serves in teaching you about life.
Reality is so interesting, when you finally are taught what it is. We do not have a brain that works via reasoning, for no reason!! The lessons in Wisdom correctly define the process of development and survival, called life. Both my Physical Health program ‘The PSYCHOLOGY OF PHYSICAL HEALTH, and my Mental Health program -THE HEALTHY MIND FOR LIFE provide you with Nature’s education on the Development and survival process called life.
It would be wonderful to see you receiving help by attending either of them.
