Cesar Millan, Dog Whispering Heilkunstler?

I don’t know if you’ve had a chance to watch Cesar Millan in action, but it is well worth the ticket of admission. He is touted as America’s Dog Whisperer and canine psychologist by National Geographic. You can see his approach to dog rehabilitation by clicking the frame below. The most important aspect is that he is not a dog trainer … actually you may be surprised to find out who actually gets the training!


I’ve been guided to watch season 1 and 2 of Cesar Millan’s television series for my postgraduate work with Steven Decker at the Novalis Institute. At first, I couldn’t understand why I was being asked to watch hours and hours of a dude working with dogs and their owners, however, that has all changed now as my kids and I hungrily eek out time to participate the episodes and then discuss what Mr. Millan is actually doing with his dynamic approach. What I’m realizing is that it is not that different to Willhelm Reich’s Character Analysis which enables the practitioner to get at the root of the subconscious and discharge the deadly orgone energy trapped there so that the person can obtain freedom from constriction (armoring) and disease and find a brand new place of naturalness hooked into their instincts and reason.

The dogs that I’ve been watching Cesar work with have generally developed physical and emotional symptoms due to the fact that their owners are attempting to humanize them out their own needs to fill a void of some sort. If you watch, you’ll see dogs that chase their tails for hours until blood is drawn, unprovoked pit-bulls that attack other dogs unmercilessly, and even dogs who hump the children of the household in an effort to dominate them. These neurotic tendencies are actually the owners’ issues being displayed for them through the mirror of their domesticated pet.

If you aren’t able to wholly get the premise, ask yourself this, “Do lions, giraffes and bears display such neurotic tendencies in the wild?” If not, why not? Why do animals in captivity suffer neurotic behaviors and participate our diseases for us? The answers to these questions can be obtained by watching the way that Cesar Millan works with the owners. You’ll see a spoiled teen let her pit bull get away with repeated bad behavior and then praise her, you’ll watch a needy business owner allow her terrier to bite the ankles (to the point of broken skin) as her clients leave her shop, and many others. So what does this have to do with Heilkunst medicine?

Well, under the jurisdiction of spiritual beliefs or Ideogenic diseases (Ideo = ideas and genesis = cause, origin), Heilkunstlers trained in the origins and development of Steiner, Reich and Hahnemann’s dynamic system in the evolution of human consciousness are able to access this realm with humans the same way that Cesar Millan goes about it with animals. What is amazing is that you don’t need to spew content for hours, months or even years at your psychotherapist to get there. The whole meal deal is that we can quickly hook into the body’s subconscious language, make the person conscious of it, discharge it through a variety of simple exercises and get more lability, flexibility, natural thinking and movement quickly and easily. Bye bye neurosis, hello sovereignty and freedom.

I’ve seen patients stop flaring their eyes in undischarged fear, stop over-eating because they were able to resolve nursing conflicts they didn’t know they had, release the anal-rention from too early imposed toilet training, release the mother-guilt held in the thoracic segment causing heart palpitations, finally emit the rage stored in the solar plexus toward their father causing asthma, and finally obtain true, healthy, natural orgastic potency with another human being. Oh yeah, and our patients stop chasing their tails too!

Conversations on Cancer with Dr. Ralph Wilson

Hello Ally,
I just remembered that my friend who is strongly into nutrition asked me how did you confirm that your breast lump was a cancer?

His father died of cancer after my friend had dropped out of a promising medical school entry track in order to learn about the “cancer underground” and thus help his father have several more years than he was expected to have.

He specifically asked me to do due diligence and see if you documented your cancer. He said that he would like to know what you used to confirm that it was cancer, though he says that not all people submit to biopsy and he would understand that. Did you do any confirmatory tests? He said that during his work with his father and later on he has come across people who make things up, or who did not document what was going on when they claimed treatments for cancer, etc.

I told him that I am convinced and don’t need more allopathic “evidence,” especially since the tests that “confirm” cancer actually only document the presence of body reactions to the imbalanced relationship that the person is in at the time.

Thanks for all you are helping to catalyze — Ralph

Subject: Re: My friend asked about the cancer diagnosis for you.Hi Dr. Ralph,It is interesting as the Allopathic model will type Cancer as benign or malignant and will accept one diagnosis as serious and one that is not. Within the Heilk√ľnst framework, Cancer is not the tumor, but the state of mind that will secondarily push out tumors, cysts, cancerous cells or not. Thorwald Deflesen in his book, The Healing Power of Illness: The Meaning of Symptoms and How to Interpret Them describes Cancer as the ego lamely attempting to separate from the whole through an over-emphasis of intellectual thought (sort of what your colleague is doing):

“So long as our “I” strives for eternal life, we shall fail in exactly the same way as the cancer-cell fails. What distinguishes the cancer-cell from the normal body-cell is an over-estimation of its own ego. Within the cell, the nucleus corresponds to the cell’s brain. In cancer-cells the nucleus continually gains in significance and thus also in size (cancer can even be diagnosed by morphological changes in the cell-nucleus). This change in the nucleus corresponds to an overemphasis on egocentric, cerebral thought, such as indeed characterizes our own time. The cancer cell seeks its eternal life through physical self-propagation and expansion. Neither cancer nor we ourselves have yet managed to grasp the fact that we are looking within physicality for something which is not to be found there, namely itself. We confuse form with content, and endeavor to attain the content that we so long for through mere, formal reduplication. Jesus, though, long ago taught that “he who would keep his life must lose it.”

I saw the morphological content of my own breast tumor through live blood analysis. The uterus cancer was diagnosed through CoRe Analysis (Bioresonance Feedback), but more importantly I just knew it (true diagnosis comes from the Greek meaning “dia-through, gnosis-knowing”). So the fascinating thing is that as your colleague seeks out valid cancer sufferers and valid cures, he is prey to the same disease state of mind I was when I had Cancer. This is the part that wholly rocks my boat! When you take ownership of Hahnemann’s principles of Heilkunst the false “I” stops running around looking for proof and a myriad of therapies to dissolve the tumor. Once you know that disease and cure are functions of the same blueprint and anthropological phenomena, all you have to do is apply lawful regimen, lawful medicine and address the state of mind through character analysis and you always get your man, and that sometimes means the tumors dissolve with the state of mind too.Please go ahead and tell him that “I” have no real “proof” at all … and neither do my patients. I’m so good with that!

You’ve got it. You are living out what I knew that Rudi Verspoor was beginning to teach when I encountered his books in 1997. He is engendering the healthy understanding in people. You are making it work. And that feels good.

You’ve got the words that would make sense to anthroposophical doctors and Reich as well.

I’m on board. What you have is what I want for my patients.
Resonance, that’s the thing.

Heilkunst and Naturopathic Medicine

I know a friend of a friend who is studying at Naturopathic College in Toronto, Ontario. She has been studying intensively for months in order to complete her final exams. I just found out from my friend that she is quite worried as the failure rate is 25% for each graduating class whether you obtain good results or not. My mouth dropped as I know that the fees are pretty exorbitant and if I were going to dedicate 4 years for a degree of medical study, laid down some serious cash, and then failed because of some numbers game, well there would be a lot of emotional shock remedies to be self-prescribed!

I studied at the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst (HCH) with two individuals who had successfully graduated from this ND College in Toronto. While they enjoyed learning about a variety of modalities, they felt that they needed more grounding in Dr. Hahnemann’s foundational principles for curative medicine. They also wanted a better understanding of dose and potency for the prescribing of homeopathic remedies. Their training at the HCH better equipped them with the tools in the art and science of curing disease as opposed to just supporting or healing the patient.

I decided to go to the Naturopathic College’s website as I wanted to see for myself if the curriculum description had changed since my friends had studied there. I was able to confirm their perspective with regards to how homeopathy is still viewed by Naturopathic medicine, “Homeopathy restores the body to homeostasis, or healthy balance, which is considered its natural state. The symptoms of a disease are regarded as the body’s own defensive attempt to correct its imbalance, rather than as enemies to be defeated. Homeopathic remedies are designed to stimulate this internal curative process rather than suppress the symptoms.”

Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathic principles wrote the Organon der Heilkunst in 1842, or the Organon of the Medical Art/Science. ‘Heilkunst’ literally means the art/science (Kunst) of healing/curing (heilen) and is the bible of homeopathic medicine. This tome lives on every shelf of every Homeopathic Physician; however, if you ask how many have actually studied this original text, you will find eyes gazing down and some shuffling of the feet.

Most colleges steer away from “the source” and end up in the realm of secondary texts. The problem is that this leads to repeating the same false paradigms over and over again. This is what has happened for the last 200 years, no less. Steven Decker’s interlinear translation of the 6th edition of the Organon offers the most advanced and complete translation of Hahnemann’s living work. In this originally sourced text, Hahnemann never refers to disease as an imbalance, an impingement to the life force for sure, but not an imbalance.

In the preface of the Organon, Hahnemann describes the Dynamic view of disease:

“With the medical art of homeopathy, it is entirely different. It can easily persuade every reflecting person that human diseases rest on no material, on no acridity, that is to say, on no disease matter; rather they are solely spirit-like (dynamic) mistunings of the spirit-like enlivening power-force-energy * (the life principle, the life force) of the human body.”

In order to cure disease, Hahnemann knew that the medicine must be chosen on the basis of similarity. It is like harnessing nature’s artificial means and then sending it in, like a heat-seeking missile to destroy and lift the natural disease. Hahnemann further illuminates, “the result is that, without in the least weakening, tormenting or torturing the patient, the natural disease is extinguished and the patient, while improving, soon grows stronger and thus is cured. This seems so easy, but actually it is a very cogitative, laborious, arduous business; however, it fully restores the patient to health in a short time and without ailment so it becomes a curative and blessed business.”

Frankly, as Hahnemann puts it, it does sound a lot like the disease is the enemy to be defeated! It is a “laborious” and “arduous” job. For example Syphilis is one of the most insidious and deadly diseases I know. It is most often the root cause for chronic anger, blame, fear, alcoholism, abuse, ritualism, suicide, psychosis, and schizophrenia. Being in the same room with this inimical foe is like performing hand-to-hand combat with one of the dirtiest and deadliest diseases I know. I would not want to be in there with the idea I was just going to restore this patient’s imbalance. If I’m going in, then I want to have the capacity to over-run, outsmart and annihilate this … well bastard of a disease. I want to be able to do this in every case I see, consistently, with Dr. Hahnemann’s principles soundly tucked in my back pocket.

Dare to Know

*Throughout this text, however, the German word Kraft is translated as power, force or energy and Lebenskraft is translated as life force. For an amazing definition of life force, you will have to look it up in the glossary of terms in the Organon as it is a fairly long passage.
