Hello, thank you for joining me today. And we’re going to be looking at a topic which comes from our video series on “How Heilkunst Diagnosis Works”. And the topic today is on the very big concept in Heilkunst, and that’s on “The Three Therapeutic Jurisdictions”.
So let me switch over to my slides. Before I forget, if you are watching live, please go ahead and type any of your questions into the comments box below. If you’re watching it after the fact, I’ll come back around and I’ll create a separate video just to address any follow up questions that come today. But again, if you are with me live, please feel free to type your questions into that comment box below. (So let me just switch over to my screen here.)
Okay. So as I mentioned, we’re looking at the three therapeutic jurisdictions within Heilkunst medicine. And we’ll see more and more clearly as we go through. This is actually the foundational concept for how the whole system of Heilkunst works. As I say, at the bottom (excuse me) of this slide, we have a whole broader question around how diagnosis work in Heilkunst. And this is a big part of it. This is a really big orientation of how we assess what’s going on in a case and how we apply a given modality or a given remedy, a given piece of advice. How does it fit into the bigger picture?
So before we get into the specifics of the three jurisdictions, what’s really behind those three jurisdictions is the master principle in Heilkunst, which is the principle of “resonance”. Now, I will be doing a separate video, if not a whole series, on the concept of resonance. It’s a concept that just keeps revealing more and more parts to it the more you examine it. But for our purposes today, when we’re looking at the three jurisdictions, we’re going to see that this master principle of resonance really unfolds itself into how it’s applied in these three different jurisdictions.
So to give you the broad outline here, the three jurisdictions are “therapeutic regimen”, “therapeutic medicine”, and finally, “therapeutic education”. And I’ll go into more of the details of all of these. But just so we have the more fundamental concept here, you can’t mix and match the jurisdictions. Like when something belongs to one jurisdiction, you can’t apply a modality that would come from another jurisdiction. It’s not going to work. Or even worse, it’s gonna cause a regression in the case.
The other main point I want to make here is that when I’m talking about these three jurisdictions, this is not just something that applies to Heilkunst. But in fact, anything that you do in the whole realm of health – even if you’re doing your nutrition at home for yourself or you’re applying other natural remedies to yourself or whichever practitioner you’re seeing (whether an MD, a specialist, a massage therapist, chiropractor), whatever the different modality is – we have to understand exactly what is happening is fitting in to these three jurisdictions. And to say that it’s fitting in a very unique way to a given case, right? It’s not just that every time somebody does a given modality, it’s always one of the jurisdictions. But it will be uniquely fitting into one of the three based on the case of that individual person. And as I say, here, this is the important, the master rule here: “Apply the correct jurisdiction at the correct time OR there will be consequences!”
Now, if we start to get into a little bit of the details now, of the three, we have the first jurisdiction of “Regimen.” And the master goal there is the “goal of balance or ‘homeostasis'”. And the law of nature that would be applied here is the law of opposite resonance. And in regimen, the problem to solve is “imbalance”. When we look at the second jurisdiction, “Therapeutic Medicine”, we have the “goal of function” or the fancy word we could use is “palingenesis” that’s kind of the opposite of homeostasis. And when you understand how our systems work in the state of health, we’re in a constant state of re-creation. We’re constantly re-creating ourselves. If you know how long a blood cell lasts, I believe, if I’m remembering the right number, that’s 120 days. Or if you look at the whole physical body, that has kind of an annual recycling. So that’s why we go to the MD for our annual physical, we want to see what’s changed over the year.
But at all these different levels, our body, our cells, our minds, all of our healthy functions are in a constant state of recreation. So that’s the meaning of this fancy word here, “palingenesis“. And when we’re in this realm of medicine, we’re applying the law of similar resonance. And the problem to be solved is the problem of “disease”. So this is not an imbalance; now we’re talking about a disease. That’s a different health issue and it takes a different principle to solve that. And the final of the three jurisdictions is “Therapeutic Education” which has the “goal of a healthy mind” or being illuminated. And here we’re applying neither the law of opposites or the law of similars. But we would call this the law of truth, the expression of resonance (back to our our master principle of resonance here). And the problem to be solved in this jurisdiction is ignorance, illusion, or belief.
So let’s now go a little more detail into each of the three jurisdictions.
In Therapeutic Regimen, as we’ve said, that’s based on the law of opposite resonance. Whatever the health issue is, we are going to apply the opposite as the solution. Or the other way of saying that is from our fairy tales, we can call that the “baby bear” principle. In other words, we want something to be not too hot, not too cold, but just right. So the examples (excuse me), would be your body shivering to warm itself up or sweating to cool itself down when it’s in an environment that’s not the optimal temperature.
Another example would be taking a vitamin supplement to overcome a deficiency, such as when we take vitamin C if we have a case of scurvy. And the final point about regimen that I wanted to include here was that regimen serves to support the innate healing power. And actually we’ll see this in the later slide. But whatever is out of balance, as far as what needs to be addressed with regimen, is going to form a blockage to the next jurisdictions as we go up. So when we get into the medicine jurisdiction (the homeopathic medicines) or we get to the third jurisdiction of therapeutic education, to the degree that there are things that are not imbalanced, that could be put into better balance through therapeutic regimen, we’re going to get some degree, or other of those next jurisdictions, not being able to be fully activated as far as their healing principles.
So let’s move up the chain now. We go to Therapeutic Medicine. And here we have the principle of the law of similar resonance. And here is the “realm of disease”. I said just a moment ago, these are not inbound; these are actual diseases. And here we are applying the “law of cure” or “like cures like”. The general principle of how that’s done is when you look at the symptoms that are produced by a medicine in a healthy person, those are the same symptoms or same disease picture that will be cured when given to someone with a very similar disease in their system. And here we apply the law of similars (l.o.s.) based on either on a symptom picture (a pathic disease), or based on the original causation (which we call a tonic disease). So this is the fundamental basis, if you’ve been going through your Sequential Timeline Treatment, where each shock or trauma that someone has experienced in their life will create a specific disease in the cellular memory. This includes simple pathogenic disease, as well as emotional shocks and traumas, amongst some other examples of first aid and other things which impinge on our system.
And finally, to move up to our third jurisdiction, we come into Therapeutic Education. And the master goal here, when it comes to the patient’s health and really getting to the higher goals of health, has to do with unfolding our highest expression of resonance. Or another way of saying that, we’re getting into the law of truth. Previously, in the lower jurisdictions, we were looking at the law of opposites or the law of similars. Well, here, we have the law of truth. And I know that may sound a little funny when you hear that at first. You think, “Well, what does that have to do with medicine and therapy? Isn’t that the realm of a philosophy classroom (or something like that)?” But the deeper we go into this, the deeper we understand that. We realize (excuse me), it’s really the basis of health at the deepest level. And when you look at the origin of diseases, the origin of some of the genetic factors that have come through our family tree, we more and more understand that a blockage to truth or an ignorance (even if it’s come several generations back), you’ll see that filtered down into the individual’s health and what were some of the issues in the therapeutic regimen (the therapeutic medicine), those ultimately stem from issues that have come from a blockage to truth.
So, another way we could say that is the old famous saying of “Know thyself”. Of course, not just the cliche version of this statement. But a really deep, deliberate unfolding of what that means. And as I was just saying a moment ago, “ignorance” is the ultimate source of disease. And this is where (again, when we get into our third jurisdiction here), these are the kinds of issues we’re thinking about, and the kind of map we’re trying to draw for the patient’s process through their treatment.
So, two general therapeutic activities we can talk about: either we’re going to be attempting to directly confront a given illusion or belief in the patient (something that they may be completely unconscious about and you need a little bit of a confrontational approach to raise that up into their awareness and innocence; agitate what that issue is so that they they start to wake up to what that even is in themselves), or the other side of the coin could be presenting something that is a truth. The patient may not have grasped it yet. And we’re creating the conditions, planting the seed where that can unfold or blossom within the patient over time.
And I’ll make a little footnote on that. When we understand the real roots of the word “education” (of course, we think of going to school and reading textbooks and things like that, but), the ultimate meaning of the word “education” comes from the root of the word “educe” which was really is about drawing something out of something. So ultimately, we do contain all of the truths within ourselves, all of the universal truths, but for various reasons of ignorance and things I’ve said here above, those have been buried or blocked deeper within ourselves. And the role of education in that meaning is to kind of remove all the blockages so that deeper connection that we have to these different universal truths can actually start to come more up to our conscious mind or conscious awareness. So that’s the meaning of education or educe is you’re drawing things out that the person already has within themselves. But as I say, they’ve lost contact with that at some point.
To go slightly further into really illuminating what’s going on in therapeutic education, as I say, here, it’s a “multi-faceted area of therapeutics”. And this includes the ultimate health goal of establishing a state of health in the patient based on a dynamic interplay between psyche and soma. Or another way of saying that is, every human being that we look at, that you know, that you meet, is really made up of two distinct beings. We’re not just one human being, individually. We’re actually two human beings who have a relationship to each other. The other way of saying this, addressing the roots of psychosomatic illness. So, diseases and other kinds of imbalances and blockages which have come from a false belief. If somebody, let’s say, has excessive anxiety over something which is disproportionate to the situation, over time, that false belief (that anxiety) will actually start to create a somatic disease (or something that expresses through bodily symptoms).
Another aspect of this could be “false personas”, which can be rooted both in the mind (the ego) or the body (which we call armoring). So that’s when someone has reactions to the world based on unconscious attachments or illusions. Also, this includes common cultural beliefs, which we collectively may share a variety of these beliefs together. And that reinforces it because we don’t see the belief as wrong in ourselves. We don’t see it wrong in our neighbor. We just think everyone is thinking the same thing because it’s correct, but actually that’s where the problem magnifies. So, as I say here, common cultural beliefs, such as “materialism”, which says that the world is made only of small physical particles. Now, this is a very brief introduction to the third jurisdiction. We’re barely scratching the surface here. But I’m hoping, at least you’ll be getting sense of what kinds of things we’re talking about as we get up to this highest or third jurisdiction.
Now, a final point I want to make about a couple of things related to both diagnosis and treatment. When it comes to “treatment”, generally speaking, it’s an upward direction. Meaning, we start from the lowest level of diagnosis – start with the therapeutic regimen, start with the imbalances there. And we build the foundation of health from the bottom and we build it up. So we build it all the way up through regimen, we work through medicine, and finally, on this very strong foundation, now we can can do the best, most direct work through the therapeutic education. And the other direction (we’re talking about “diagnosis”), that generally flows from the top down.
So the biggest picture of diagnosis is really looking at the whole human being or their whole medical case. And we’re looking at the biggest picture of who they are, what they are as an individual, where the diseases and blockages are – but we’re taking that bigger approach. And from the big picture, we’re looking down into the small details. So again, treatment starts at the bottom and works up; where diagnosis, in the ultimate sense, starts at the top and works down. So, of course, those two directions meet each other in terms of the whole treatment plan. But just so you understand that there’s duality of movement (or approach) to what we’re looking at from the bottom up, and what we’re looking at from the top down in order to make sense of what’s going on in someone’s treatment plan.
So as I said at the beginning, if you have any questions, I’m happy to answer them right now. Let me just turn back to my main screen here. And, how do I get myself back on screen? Yeah, there. There’s me. Let me… Whoops, that’s not what I want. I wanted this variation. So yes, as I say, I will be happy to answer any questions here. Or I’ll work them into a future video depending on what the topics are about. And I’ll just wait for a moment, just in case someone is typing a question as we speak. But otherwise, that brings us to the end of our presentation. And thank you again for joining me today. And I’ll see you in the next video.
