Sex Education like You’ve Never Known it Before!

Our Heilkunst protocols are now “taking us” liberally, and literally, into the realm of “sex education”. However, we teach it like you’ve maybe never heard it taught before. The last time you may have really studied the subject might have been about grade 10, when you were told that abstinence makes the heart grow fonder. If you were brave enough to engage with the opposite sex in your primal youth, you may have sported as many condoms as your wallet could hold and by the time they were wholly in place, the steam in the engine may have fizzled. If you were lucky enough to pass all four bases and strike a “homer” the experience might have been disappointing with at least one of you asking, “Is that it?”

Let’s start with the definition of health. Most people (who aren’t working with us) define health as an absence of symptoms, but this is a shortfall that stems from the conventional allopathic model of medicine. The trouble is, most people believe it. Have you ever heard the song that says “He gives me fever”? Think about it – would you choose an absence of symptoms such as heat, sweating, heavy breathing, mucous, inflammation, and engorged tissues during sex? Would you seek to suppress that deep yearning that courses through you to ultimately couple with your beloved? It is interesting because these symptoms are wholly desirable, in this case, but in order to achieve them, you have to work at creating these “symptoms” out of your imagination.

As an example of the opposite state, cancer has very few symptoms. In fact, the sexy inflammatory capacity has pretty much disengaged. The body sees the arch-nemesis on board in the form of cancerous cells or even a tumor, but it is so resigned, that it just doesn’t care much anymore. The immune function is on vacation. It is interesting that most folks with cancer also have little or no desire for sex. They are not able to mount the desire function or the imagination to even “get it up” or create the environment to “get it in”. I’m sure you can see the connection. In my own practice, I know that if a person has lost interest in sex, yes even if they are 85, something is up (I mean down), and we’ve got to work to provoke the inflammatory response. In other words, are they willing to get “hot” again and engage in life or is the apathy and fear going to prevail?

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Heilkunst Medicine, understood this phenomenon. He wholly knew that health is not an absence of symptoms. Hahnemann said, “In the healthy human state, the spirit-like life force [imagination] that enlivens the material organism as dynamis [fever capacity], governs without restriction and keeps all parts of the organism in admirable, harmonious, vital [desire function] operation, as regards both feelings [love] and functions [sex], so that our indwelling, rational [thought] spirit can freely avail itself [resonance] of this living [potent], healthy instrument for the higher purposes of our existence [orgastic potency]. Yes, the bracketed words are mine, but if you read Hahnemann, you’ll know he was totally hooked to nature and her capacity for true sexual potency. If you read A Homeopathic Love Story, by Rima Handley, about Hahnemann’s marriage to Melanie, you will see what I mean. It is one of my absolute favourite books!

Dr. Wilhelm Reich also understood that the healthy functional nature of all life in human beings is driven by orgastic sexual potency. He wrote some amazing books on the subject entitled The Function of the Orgasm, The Cancer Biopathy, The Bioelectrical Investigation of Sexuality and Anxiety, Character Analysis, Listen Little Man!, and The Murder of Christ to name a few. He was the individual who said, “The pleasure of living and the pleasure of the orgasm are identical.” He also noted, about 70 years ago, that less than 1% of women were able to live in this healthy state of orgastic potency, knowing pleasure, through the function of the orgasm. Reich surmised that folks are actually more afraid of truly living than suffering, struggling or even death.

Reich also recognized that most people were only able to achieve genital climax, or ejaculation, which is centred solely in the genitals. While this is a pleasurable little “ooohh la la” moment that most people incorrectly call “orgasms”, it’s not the earth shatterin’, mind emptyin’, completely off the grid loss of consciousness where you come back re-ordered, spiritually, emotionally and physically. The feeling is that you basically flat-lined the autonomic nervous system and then the re-boot button gets pushed for you … by, well let’s say the force that animates you and made you manifest in a physical body. Some folks call it God! It is a great way to get to know the big “G-force” that ultimately hungers for you to be here, but it takes a great degree of health, courage, and imagination to completely let go to it. It is like the grand physical, emotional, and spiritual convulsion where you are so taken away on a tide of the grandest pleasure, you’re not attached to whether you come back and recover from it! A true state of mercy indeed, a “near-life” experience if you get it right. It is inflammation at it’s best!

So why don’t we more often hear of such deeply resonant sexual relationships? Dr. Reich said : “Extreme orgasm anxiety forms the basis of the general fear of life”. The unfortunate thing is that with events like 9/11, the Federal Reserve hijacking our generative creative capacity, and the diseases in our midst, we’re finding that most folk are polarized in their intellects, trying to hyper-manage every aspect of their lives from their heads. Daily, we face patients suffering from anxiety, stress, OCD and such as a result of unresolved “orgasm anxiety”. These are symptomatic of the actual “Fear”, with a capital “F”, that sits housed down in the lower pole near the sex organs, kinking your capacity for love, freedom and the beloved inflammatory response we all crave. This is the opposite state to knowing “God” and trusting in the process of the function of the orgasm.

The key lies in wiggling loose the wedge between the intellect and the sexual pole, introducing the head to the heart and to the hairy, horny bits (yes, my alliteration) and allowing them to get to know each other in a safe and healthy environment. The goal of Heilkunst treatment is to willingly invite all 3 members to wholly engage in regular conversations, dating openly and liberally and then eventually answering to each other’s calls for love and intimacy. Surprising as it may seem, many folks haven’t been engaged with all their members … well since before they were forced into toilet training, told not to touch themselves (too much and you’ll go blind!), and then grade 10 Health Class went and polished us off with the idea that abstinence makes the heart grow fonder. The goal of Heilkunst treatment is to live fully orgastically potent and we possess the functional therapeutic tools to get you there!

For more information on the “mechanics” of resonant sexual intimacy including mysterious terms like G-spot, tantric sex where you learn to circulate Chi (orgone) energy, and multiple orgasms, check out The Multi-Orgasmic Couple, by Chia and Abrams. It is written by two couples from the west and from the east and is a great way to learn how to build the Chi between the both of you. Another great resource is The Kama Sutra by Tracey Cox. Yes, you need to read the text in addition to gobbling up the pictures if you want to know, “How do they bloody do that?” If imagination and fantasy is where you are challenged, take a look at Nancy Friday’s books including, MEN IN LOVE Men’s Sexual Fantasies: The Triumph of Love Over Rage.

Mr. Rogers was a Guru when it comes to knowing about Breastfeeding!

My friend and colleague, Helen Daniels, sent to me the most amazing video the other day. When I saw that it was originally aired on Mr. Rogers, I did a double take. It is one of the most beautiful depictions of mothers nursing their young that I have ever seen. I have had the pleasure of knowing a small number of healthy, natural women who are completely in flow, relaxed and at ease with nursing their babes. I have also been invited to help a small number of moms first latch their newborn in the initial stages of establishing nourishing wisdom. It is indeed an act of love, pleasure and intimacy!

It is fascinating to perceive the process of nursing from an Anthropological perspective (the study of Man) as therapeutically, we’re finding a huge link between the way a baby is nursed and the sad potential for neurotic behavior, including over-eating, later on in life.  Wilhelm Reich recognized that musculo-emotional armoring was much more profoundly entrenched in folks that had not wholly been held and nurtured by loving mothers and fathers.  I’ve treated a couple of foreign adopted babes who were bereft of attention and their little bodies were stiff and rigid even at the tender ages of 2 and 4.  It broke my heart!

I have worked with adults who suffer obesity and with Reich’s medical orgone therapy, we go back and re-enact “the crib scene” by having the patient lie down and reach out beseeching, imploring and crying for their mother.  It is interesting just how emotionally available this primal need is still active in the present.  There is absolutely no surprise to us to hear patients crying in pain, even in adulthood, at not having been held, heard or fed, except on a 3-4 hour schedule; a pathetic and sad oversight on the part of rigid educators for new parents in the 50s and 60s.  One woman I treated, cried out while clawing at the sheets that she is turning into an animal and could devour anything if she got it.  This is key to the oral block that causes her gluttonous behaviour today as when she does access food, she still can’t get enough.  Sad, but true for many.

Patients with swollen adenoids, chronic sore throats, abcesses, or thyroid issues are also suffering from blocked oral energy that needs to be addressed by a medical system which understands all the causes.  Chronic loquaciousness or “over-talking”, perhaps typical of your spouse, or mother-in-law, is just a symptomatic pattern often stemming from not being wholly heard, nourished or honoured in early childhood.  Unfortunately, most drugs or psychotherapeutics just palliate or suppress further this armoring that seemingly cements the orally blocked energy behind beliefs and patterns that just keep repeating themselves.  By exorcising – and believe me, it can feel like a spiritual exorcism at times – Reichian therapeutics (Medical Orgonomy) actually engaged the patient with the hidden but living content to be able to liberate the root cause.

Typical old fashioned talk therapy just further engages the patient with their intellect while they talk it all out.  This approach is limiting, as the patient and Clinician are wholly dependent on what the patient can recall of the past from memory. The intellect loves this, as it can only dwell in the past or project onto the future; it hates the present … especially the feeling.  The thing is that both patient and Clinician totally miss the proverbial boat as “the feeling” is the key to the release and remains locked behind the armoring and belief structure, never wholly liberated by all the yacking and intellectual looping.  In fact, the talk therapy is just prolonging the disease process and providing the illusion that content is being excavated, while both clinician and patient are seduced by the patterns of the past – they just end up going round and round “the feeling”, rarely causing a noticeable shift in the state of mind.  I know, because I treat a number of Psychotherapists!

As Heilkunstlers, we are typically able to dislodge the block in 3-4 visits with a combination of homeopathic medicine, regimen, and appropriate medical orgonomy techniques.  We bet Reich would be impressed with our results as he didn’t have homeopathic medicine at his disposal to cure the underlying disease states, or the capacity to simultaneously cleanse the bowel of all the unresolved … well … crap.  Yes, it is related!  We love that our therapeutics are nailing down this dimension for treatment; it is why we use the word “wholistic” to describe our clinic.  Where else can you go to get Naturopathy, Homeopathy, and Psychotherapeutics all under one shingle?  Or even with one clinician who knows and cares for your healing welfare en route to your path to cure?

Mumps is Back!

Take a look at the insanity being circulated at our local health department here in Ottawa. This is botched science at its best. The thinking being that if one dose doesn’t work, just give more! Sort of like spanking a child. Also, if Mumps is what is needing to be addressed, why are they also proposing to re-immunize against Measles and Rubella (German Measles)? The latter has not reared its ugly little head for over 50 years and has been in fact declared “eradicated”. In fact, it is the allopathic medical community that tries to take credit for this, but we know this little scourge just naturally found its way on the decline all by itself without any vaccine. I particularly love the part at the end of her memo when she cites, “Fortunately, mumps is preventable through immunization, so advertising our clinics as much as possible is very important.” Um, is she so entirely stupid to think that the audience she is writing to isn’t going to catch such an obvious contradiction? Hello???? As you all know we use safe, proven homeopathic remedies to cure the underlying cause and also apply the same principled, lawful science to prevent Mumps on the basis of Homoprophylaxis. We can do this safely and effectively with any childhood illness you would like to prevent in your child.

Dear OPH colleague;

Mumps is Back! As you may be aware, the incidence of mumps has been increasing recently throughout Canada, primarily among postsecondary students. There have been outbreaks of mumps in four other provinces, and infections are on the rise in Ontario. In response, The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care has implemented a one-time Mumps Catch-Up Vaccination Program by offering free mumps-containing vaccine, called MMR (measles/mumps/rubella), through local Public Health Units.

Four out of five people born in Ontario between 1970 and 1995 have received only one dose of the MMR vaccine, which may not provide them with enough protection against the mumps virus. After a new recommendation in 1996, most children in Ontario received two doses of the MMR vaccine before entering elementary school. To be fully protected from contracting mumps, two doses are required. Ottawa Public Health is encouraging all young adults born between 1970 and 1995 to review their immunization records, and receive a second dose of the MMR vaccine if this has not already occurred. Clinics will be hosted at all postsecondary institutions in Ottawa, and in various community settings, from January to March 2009.

Mumps is a highly contagious viral illness that can have serious and permanent complications. Fortunately, mumps is preventable through immunization, so advertising our clinics as much as possible is very important.The Community Immunization Clinics Program would greatly appreciate your assistance with getting this information out into our community by sharing it with your community partners, friends and families. For more information, and a list of community and campus clinics, visit ottawa.ca/health or ontario.ca/mumps

Together, we can prevent an outbreak of mumps in the City of Ottawa.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I am a Modern Man, by George Carlin

If the goal of health is to “know thyself” I think George Carlin has a leg up on us all … authentic, generative, in touch with his feelings, absolutely true to himself, and he doesn’t give a rat’s hiney what anyone thinks of him.
