If you saw Laura walking down the New York City street where she lives today, you’d see a well-dressed 46-year-old woman with auburn hair and green eyes, who exudes a sense of ‘I matter here.’ She looks entirely in charge of her life, but behind Laura’s confident demeanour lies a history of trauma: a bipolar mother who vacillated between braiding her daughter’s hair and peppering her with insults, and a father who moved out-of-state with his wife-to-be when Laura was 15 years old.

She recalls a family trip to the Grand Canyon when she was 10. In a photo taken that day, Laura and her parents sit on a bench, sporting tourist whites. ‘Anyone looking at us would have assumed that we were a normal, loving family.’ But as they put on fake smiles for the camera, Laura’s mother suddenly pinched her daughter’s midriff and told her to stop ‘staring off into space’. A second pinch: ‘No wonder you’re turning into a butterball, you ate so much cheesecake last night you’re hanging over your shorts!’ If you look hard at Laura’s face in the photograph, you can see that she’s not squinting at the Arizona sun, but holding back tears.

After her father left the family, he sent cards and money, but called less and less. Meanwhile, her mother’s untreated bipolar disorder worsened. Sometimes, Laura says: ‘My mom would go on a vitriolic diatribe about my dad until spittle foamed on her chin. I’d stand there, trying not to hear her as she went on and on, my whole body shaking inside.’ Laura never invited friends over, for fear they’d find out her secret: her mom ‘wasn’t like other moms’.

Some 30 years later, Laura says: ‘In many ways, no matter where I go or what I do, I’m still in my mother’s house.’ Today, ‘If a car swerves into my lane, a grocery store clerk is rude, my husband and I argue, or my boss calls me in to talk over a problem, I feel something flip over inside. It’s like there’s a match standing inside too near a flame, and with the smallest breeze, it ignites.’

To see Laura, you’d never know that she is ‘always shaking a little, only invisibly, deep down in my cells’.

Her sense that something is wrong inside is mirrored by her physical health. During a routine exam, Laura’s doctor discovered that Laura was suffering from dilated cardiomyopathy and would require a cardioverter defibrillator to keep her heart pumping. The two-inch scar from her surgery only hints at the more severe scars she hides from her childhood.

For as long as John can remember, he says, his parents’ marriage was deeply troubled, as was his relationship with his father. ‘I consider myself to have been raised by my mom and her mom. I longed to feel a deeper connection with my dad, but it just wasn’t there. He couldn’t extend himself in that way.’ John’s poor relationship with his father was due, in large part, to his father’s reactivity and need for control. For instance, if John’s father said that the capital of New York was New York City, there was just no use telling him that it was Albany.

As John got older, it seemed wrong to him that his father ‘was constantly pointing out all the mistakes that my brother and I made, without acknowledging any of his own’. His father relentlessly criticised his mother, who was ‘kinder and more confident’. Aged 12, John began to interject himself into the fights between his parents. He remembers one Christmas Eve, when he found his father with his hands around his mother’s neck and had to separate them. ‘I was always trying to be the adult between them,’ John says.

John is now a boyish 40, with warm hazel eyes and a wide, affable grin. But beneath his easy, open demeanour, he struggles with an array of chronic illnesses. By the time he was 33, his blood pressure was shockingly high; he began to experience bouts of stabbing stomach pain and diarrhoea and often had blood in his stool; he struggled from headaches almost daily. By 34, he’d developed chronic fatigue, and was so wiped out that he sometimes struggled to make it through an entire workday.

John’s relationships, like his body, were never completely healthy. He ended a year?long romance with a woman he deeply loved because he felt riddled with anxiety around her normal, ‘happy family’. He just didn’t know how to fit in. ‘She wanted to help,’ he says, ‘but instead of telling her how insecure I was around her, I told her I wasn’t in love with her.’ Bleeding from his inflamed intestines, exhausted by chronic fatigue, debilitated and distracted by pounding headaches, often struggling with work, and unable to feel comfortable in a relationship, John was stuck in a universe of pain and solitude, and he couldn’t get out.

Laura’s and John’s life stories illustrate the physical price we can pay, as adults, for trauma that took place 10, 20, even 30 years ago. New findings in neuroscience, psychology and immunology tell us that the adversity we face during childhood has farther-reaching consequences than we might ever have imagined. Today, in labs across the country, neuroscientists are peering into the once-inscrutable brain-body connection, and breaking down, on a biochemical level, exactly how the stress we experience during childhood and adolescence catches up with us when we are adults, altering our bodies, our cells, and even our DNA.

Emotional stress in adult life affects us on a physical level in quantifiable, life-altering ways. We all know that when we are stressed, chemicals and hormones can flush our body and increase levels of inflammation. That’s why stressful events in adult life are correlated with the likelihood of getting a cold or having a heart attack.

But when children or teens face adversity and especially unpredictable stressors, they are left with deeper, longer?lasting scars. When the young brain is thrust into stressful situations over and over again without warning, and stress hormones are repeatedly ramped up, small chemical markers, known as methyl groups, adhere to specific genes that regulate the activity of stress?hormone receptors in the brain. These epigenetic changes hamper the body’s ability to turn off the stress response. In ideal circumstances, a child learns to respond to stress, and recover from it, learning resilience. But kids who’ve faced chronic, unpredictable stress undergo biological changes that cause their inflammatory stress response to stay activated.

Joan Kaufman, director of the Child and Adolescent Research and Education (CARE) programme at the Yale School of Medicine, recently analysed DNA in the saliva of happy, healthy children, and of children who had been taken from abusive or neglectful parents. The children who’d experienced chronic childhood stress showed epigenetic changes in almost 3,000 sites on their DNA, and on all 23 chromosomes – altering how appropriately they would be able to respond to and rebound from future stressors.

Kids who’ve had early adversity have a drip of fight-or-flight hormones turned on every day – it’s as if there is no off switch

Likewise, Seth Pollak, professor of psychology and director of the Child Emotion Research Laboratory at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, uncovered startling genetic changes in children with a history of adversity and trauma. Pollak identified damage to a gene responsible for calming the stress response. This particular gene wasn’t working properly; the kids’ bodies weren’t able to reign in their heightened stress response. ‘A crucial set of brakes are off,’ says Pollak.

Imagine for a moment that your body receives its stress hormones and chemicals through an IV drip that’s turned on high when needed and, when the crisis passes, it’s switched off again. You might think of kids whose brains have undergone epigenetic changes because of early adversity as having an inflammation-promoting drip of fight-or-flight hormones turned on every day – it’s as if there is no off switch.

Experiencing stress in childhood changes your set point of wellbeing for decades to come. In people such as Laura and John, the endocrine and immune systems are churning out a damaging and inflammatory cocktail of stress neurochemicals in response to even small stressors – an unexpected bill, a disagreement with their spouse, a car that swerves in front of them on the highway, a creak on the staircase – for the rest of their lives. They might find themselves overreacting to, and less able to recover from, the inevitable stressors of life. They’re always responding. And all the while, they’re unwittingly marinating in inflammatory chemicals, which sets the stage for full-throttle disease down the road, in the form of autoimmune disease, heart disease, cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, fibroid tumours, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, migraines and asthma.

Scientists first came to understand the relationship between early chronic stress and later adult disease through the work of a dedicated physician in San Diego and a determined epidemiologist from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta. Together, during the 1980s and ’90s – the years when Laura and John were growing up – these two researchers began a paradigm-shifting public-health investigation known as the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study.

In 1985, Vincent J Felitti, chief of a revolutionary preventive care initiative at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Care programme in San Diego, noticed a startling pattern in adult patients at an obesity clinic. A significant number were, with the support of Felitti and his nurses, successfully losing hundreds of pounds a year, a remarkable feat, only to withdraw from the programme despite weight-loss success. Felitti, determined to get to the bottom of the attrition rate, conducted face-to-face interviews with 286 patients. It turned out there was a common denominator. Many confided that they had suffered some sort of trauma, often sexual abuse, in their childhoods. To these patients, eating was a solution, not a problem: it soothed the anxiety and depression they had harboured for decades; their weight served as a shield against undesired attention, and they didn’t want to let it go.

Felitti’s interviews gave him a new way of looking at human health and wellbeing that other physicians just weren’t seeing. He presented his findings at a national obesity conference, arguing that ‘our intractable public health problems’ had root causes hidden ‘by shame, by secrecy, and by social taboos against exploring certain areas of life experience’. Felitti’s peers were quick to blast him. One even stood up in the audience and accused Felitti of offering ‘excuses’ for patients’ ‘failed lives’. Felitti, however, remained unfazed; he felt sure that he had stumbled upon a piece of information that would hold enormous import for the field of medicine.

After a colleague who attended that same conference suggested that he design a study with thousands of patients who suffered from a wide variety of diseases, not just obesity, Felitti joined forces with Robert Anda, a medical epidemiologist at the CDC who had, at the time, been researching the relationship between coronary heart disease and depression. Felitti and Anda took advantage of Kaiser Permanente’s vast patient cohort to set up a national epidemiology laboratory. Of the 26,000 patients they invited to take part in their study, more than 17,000 agreed.

Anda and Felitti surveyed these 17,000 individuals on about 10 types of adversity, or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), probing into patients’ childhood and adolescent histories. Questions included: ‘Was a biological parent ever lost to you through divorce, abandonment or other reason?’; ‘Did a parent or other adult in the household often swear at you, insult you, put you down or humiliate you?’; and ‘Was a household member depressed or mentally ill?’ Other questions looked at types of family dysfunction that included growing up with a parent who was an alcoholic or addicted to other substances; being physically or emotionally neglected; being sexually or physically abused; witnessing domestic violence; having a family member who was sent to prison; feeling that there was no one to provide protection; and feeling that one’s family didn’t look out for each other. For each category to which a patient responded ‘yes’, one point would be added to her ACE score, so an ACE score of 2 would indicate that she had suffered two adverse childhood experiences.

To be clear, the patients Felitti and Anda surveyed were not troubled or disadvantaged; the average patient was 57, and three-quarters had attended college. These were ‘successful’ men and women, mostly white, middle-class, with stable jobs and health benefits. Felitti and Anda expected their number of ‘yes’ answers to be fairly low.

The correlation between having a difficult childhood and facing illness as an adult offered a whole new lens through which we could view human health and disease

When the results came in, Felitti and Anda were shocked: 64 per cent of participants answered ‘yes’ to having encountered at least one category of early adversity, and 87 per cent of those patients also had additional adverse childhood experiences; 40 per cent had suffered two or more ACEs; 12.5 per cent had an ACE score greater than or equal to 4.

Felitti and Anda wanted to find out whether there was a correlation between the number of adverse childhood experiences an individual had faced, and the number and severity of illnesses and disorders she developed as an adult. The correlation proved so powerful that Anda was not only ‘stunned’, but deeply moved.

‘I wept,’ he says. ‘I saw how much people had suffered, and I wept.’

Felitti, too, was deeply affected. ‘Our findings exceeded anything we had conceived. The correlation between having a difficult childhood and facing illness as an adult offered a whole new lens through which we could view human health and disease.’

Here, says Felitti, ‘was the missing piece as to what was causing so much of our unspoken suffering as human beings’.

The number of adverse childhood experiences a patient had suffered could by and large predict the amount of medical care she would require in adulthood: the higher the ACE score, the higher the number of doctor’s appointments she’d had in the past year, and the more unexplained physical symptoms she’d reported.

People with an ACE score of 4 were twice as likely to be diagnosed with cancer than people who hadn’t faced any form of childhood adversity. For each point an individual had, her chance of being hospitalised with an autoimmune disease in adulthood rose 20 per cent. Someone with an ACE score of 4 was 460 per cent more likely to face depression than someone with a score of 0.

An ACE score of 6 or higher shortened an individual’s lifespan by almost 20 years.

Researchers wondered if those who encountered childhood adversity were also more likely to smoke, drink and overeat as a sort of coping strategy, and while that was sometimes the case, unhealthy habits didn’t wholly account for the correlation Felitti and Anda saw between adverse childhood experiences and later illness. For instance, those with ACE scores greater than or equal to 7 who didn’t drink or smoke, weren’t overweight or diabetic, and didn’t have high cholesterol stillhad a 360 per cent higher risk of heart disease than those with ACE scores of 0.

‘Time,’ says Felitti, ‘does not heal all wounds. One does not “just get over” something – not even 50 years later.’ Instead, he says: ‘Time conceals. And human beings convert traumatic emotional experiences in childhood into organic disease later in life.’

Often, these illnesses can be chronic and lifelong. Autoimmune disease. Heart disease. Chronic bowel disorders. Migraines. Persistent depression. Even today, doctors puzzle over these very conditions: why are they so prevalent; why are some patients more prone to them than others; and why are they so difficult to treat?

The more research that’s done, the more granular details emerge about the profound link between adverse experiences and adult disease. Scientists at Duke University in North Carolina, the University of California, San Francisco, and Brown University in Rhode Island have shown that childhood adversity damages us on a cellular level in ways that prematurely age our cells and affect our longevity. Adults who faced early life stress show greater erosion in what are known as telomeres – protective caps that sit on the ends of DNA strands to keep the DNA healthy and intact. As telomeres erode, we’re more likely to develop disease, and we age faster; as our telomeres age and expire, our cells expire and so, eventually, do we.

Researchers have also seen a correlation between specific types of adverse childhood experiences and a range of diseases. For instance, children whose parents die, or who face emotional or physical abuse, or experience childhood neglect, or witness marital discord between their parents are more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, lung disease, diabetes, headaches, multiple sclerosis and lupus as adults. Facing difficult circumstances in childhood increases six-fold your chances of having myalgic encephalomyelitis (chronic fatigue syndrome) as an adult. Kids who lose a parent have triple the risk of depression in their lifetimes. Children whose parents divorce are twice as likely to suffer a stroke later down the line.

Laura and John’s stories illustrate that the past can tick away inside us for decades like a silent time bomb, until it sets off a cellular message that lets us know the body does not forget its history.

Something that happened to you when you were five or 15 can land you in the hospital 30 years later

John’s ACE score would be a 3: a parent often put him down; he witnessed his mother being harmed; and, clearly, his father suffered from an undiagnosed behaviour health disorder, perhaps narcissism or depression, or both.

Laura had an ACE score of 4.

Laura and John are hardly alone. Two-thirds of American adults are carrying wounds from childhood quietly into adulthood, with little or no idea of the extent to which these wounds affect their daily health and wellbeing. Something that happened to you when you were five or 15 can land you in the hospital 30 years later, whether that something was headline news, or happened quietly, without anyone else knowing it, in the living room of your childhood home.

The adversity a child faces doesn’t have to be severe abuse in order to create deep biophysical changes that can lead to chronic health conditions in adulthood.

‘Our findings showed that the 10 different types of adversity we examined were almost equal in their damage,’ says Felitti. He and Anda found that no single ACE significantly trumped another. This was true even though some types, such as being sexually abused, are far worse in that society regards them as particularly shameful, and others, such as physical abuse, are more overt in their violence.

This makes sense if you think about how the stress response functions on an optimal level. You meet a bear in the woods, and your body floods with adrenaline and cortisol so that you can quickly decide whether to run in the opposite direction or stay and try to frighten the bear. After you deal with the crisis, you recover, your stress hormones abate, and you go home with a great story. For Laura and John, though, that feeling that the bear is still out there, somewhere, circling in the woods, stalking, and might strike again any day, anytime – that feeling never disappears.

There are a lot of bears out there. Chronic parental discord; enduring low-dose humiliation or blame and shame; chronic teasing; the quiet divorce between two secretly seething parents; a parent’s premature exit from a child’s life; the emotional scars of growing up with a hypercritical, unsteady, narcissistic, bipolar, alcoholic, addicted or depressed parent; physical or emotional abuse or neglect: these happen in all too many families. Although the details of individual adverse experiences differ from one home to another and from one neighbourhood to another, they are all precursors to the same organic chemical changes deep in the gray matter of the developing brain.

Every few decades, a groundbreaking psychosocial ‘theory of everything’ helps us to develop a new understanding of why we are the way we are – and how we got that way. In the early 20th century, the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud transformed the landscape of psychology when he argued that the unconscious rules much of our waking life and dreams. Jungian theory taught, among other ideas, that we tend toward introversion or extroversion, which led the American educationalist Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers to develop a personality indicator. More recently, neuroscientists discovered that age ‘zero to three’ was a critical synaptic window for brain development, giving birth to Head Start and other preschool programmes. The correlation between childhood trauma, brain architecture and adult wellbeing is the newest, and perhaps our most important, psychobiological theory of everything.

Today’s research on adverse childhood experiences revolutionises how we see ourselves, our understanding of how we came to be the way we are, why we love the way we do, how we can better nurture our children, and how we can work to realise our potential.

To date, more than 1,500 studies founded on Felitti and Anda’s hallmark ACE research show that both physical and emotional suffering are rooted in the complex workings of the immune system, the body’s master operating control centre – and what happens to the brain during childhood sets the programming for how our immune systems will respond for the rest of our lives.

The unifying principle of this new theory of everything is this: your emotional biography becomes your physical biology, and together, they write much of the script for how you will live your life. Put another way: your early stories script your biology and your biology scripts the way your life will play out.

Unlike previous theories of everything, though, this one has been mind-bogglingly slow to change how we do medicine, according to Felitti. ‘Very few internists or medical schools are interested in embracing the added responsibility that this understanding imposes on them.’

With the ACE research now available, we might hope that physicians will begin to see patients as a holistic sum of their experiences and embrace the understanding that a stressor from long ago can be a health-risk time bomb that has exploded. Such a medical paradigm, which sees adverse childhood experiences as one of many key factors that can play a role in disease, could save many patients years in the healing process.

But seeing that connection takes a little time. It means asking patients to fill out the ACE questionnaire and delving into that patient’s history for insight into sources of both physical and emotional pain. As health-care budgets have become stretched, physicians spend less time interacting one-on-one with patients in their exam rooms; the average physician schedules patients back-to-back at 15-minute intervals.

Still, the cost of not intervening is far greater – not only in the loss of human health and wellbeing, but also in additional healthcare. According to the CDC, the total lifetime cost of child maltreatment in the US is $124 billion each year. The lifetime healthcare cost for each individual who experiences childhood maltreatment is estimated at $210,012 – comparable to other costly health conditions, such as having a stroke, which has a lifetime estimated cost of $159,846 per person, or type-2 diabetes, which is estimated to cost between $181,000 and $253,000.

Further hindering change is the fact that adult physical medicine and psychological medicine remain in separate silos. Utilising ACE research requires breaking down these long-standing divisions in healthcare between what is ‘physical’ and what is ‘mental’ or ‘emotional,’ and that’s hard to achieve. Physicians have been well-trained to deal only with what they can touch with their hands, see with their eyes, or view with microscopes or scans.

Just as physical wounds and bruises heal, just as we can regain our muscle tone, we can recover function in underconnected areas of the brain

However, now that we have scientific evidence that the brain is genetically modified by childhood experience, we can no longer draw that line in the sand. With hundreds of studies showing that childhood adversity hurts our mental and physical health, putting us at greater risk for learning disorders, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, depression, obesity, suicide, substance abuse, failed relationships, violence, poor parenting and early death, we just can’t afford to make such distinctions.

Science tells us that biology does not have to be destiny. ACEs can last a lifetime, but they don’t have to. Just as physical wounds and bruises heal, just as we can regain our muscle tone, we can recover function in underconnected areas of the brain. If anything, that’s the most important take-away from ACE research: the brain and body are never static; they are always in the process of becoming and changing.

Even if we have been set on high-reactive mode for decades or a lifetime, we can still dial it down. We can respond to life’s inevitable stressors more appropriately and shift away from an overactive inflammatory response. We can become neurobiologically resilient. We can turn bad epigenetics into good epigenetics and rescue ourselves. We have the capacity, within ourselves, to create better health. We might call this brave undertaking ‘the neurobiology of awakening’.

Today, scientists recognise a range of promising approaches to help create new neurons (known as neurogenesis), make new synaptic connections between those neurons (known as synaptogenesis), promote new patterns of thoughts and reactions, bring underconnected areas of the brain back online – and reset our stress response so that we decrease the inflammation that makes us ill.

You can find ways to start right where you are, no matter how deep your scars or how long ago they occurred. Many mind-body therapies not only help you to calm your thoughts and increase your emotional and physical wellbeing, but research suggests that they have the potential to reverse, on a biological level, the harmful impact of childhood adversity.

Recent studies indicate that individuals who practice mindfulness meditation and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) show an increase in gray matter in parts of the brain associated with managing stress, and experience shifts in genes that regulate their stress response and their levels of inflammatory hormones. Other research suggests that a process known as neurofeedback can help to regrow connections in the brain that were lost to adverse childhood experiences.

Meditation, mindfulness, neurofeedback, cognitive therapy, EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) therapy: these promising new avenues to healing can be part of any patient’s recovery plan, if only healthcare practitioners would begin to treat the whole patient – past, present and future, without making distinctions between physical and mental health – and encourage patients to explore all the treatment options available to them. The more we learn about the toxic impact of early stress, the better equipped we are to counter its effects, and help to uncover new strategies and modalities to come back to who it is we really are, and who it was we might have been had we not encountered childhood adversity in the first place.

What is the Meaning of Autism and Why is It Suddenly So Prevalent?

I recall back in the 3rd year of medical school at the Hahnemann College for Heilkunst this discussion being raised in class.  We talked about how diseases of a microbiological nature are naturally declining.  How many of your peers or family members have suffering recently from Cholera or Scarlet Fever?  Even Cancer is on a 25% lessing trajectory and with less that 3% therapeutic efficacy in conventional medicine, this certainly is not due to Surgery, Chemotherapy or Radiation.

Autism will become the scourge of our modern times.  It is a condition of a lack of a healthy ontic (ontological, individuality or sense of one’s self) and on the biological level, physical and emotional armouring.  There is a reason that Autism is coming up on the tail end of Cancer, a disease so prevalent in the 60’s and 70’s.  That is because many of these babes are being born to professional mothers who’ve been subjected not only to a whole host of  environmental toxicity, vaccines, mercury fillings and expectations to be as intellectually adept by matching their male counterparts a full 50% in global boardrooms.

However, this all is coming at a cost.  Our Autistic children are being born to mothers bourn out of of the state of mind of cancer.  They’re mostly armoured in their natural functioning and unfoldment, they rescue others to the exclusion of themselves and suffering feelings of the un-lived life.  This is the definition for the state of mind of Cancer and they are prey to the education system and the corporate infrastructure needing a false authority to tell them what to do.  I know, because they attempt to put me on the same pedestal.

“Supplemental Feeding” by Edwin & Kelly Tofslie https://flic.kr/p/mA8wb

No, I’m not saying that stay at home Moms are preferable to working Moms for raising our babies.  The intellect will attempt to categorize what I’m saying here with big wad of guilt and a knee jerk reflective desire to distill the whole phenomenon down to the simplest terms.  It doesn’t work like that.  We can’t fix this phenomenon without the proper rumination or consideration.  It’s precisely THIS way of intellectualizing that is part of the problem.  The intellect despises phenomenology as it prefers unidimensional thinking.

What I am saying is that we’re transitioning more and more into intellectual automatons which is leaving our wombs and bubba-kins bereft of feeling, love, grace, ease, naturalness, surrender and the capacity for true wisdom properly ensouled and incarnated in our physical bodies.  We’ve lost much of our inherent ataraxia and it is impacting on the health of our children.

Our babes are being ravaged as a side-line project, an intellectual side-bar, because most people seems to “think” that they should spawn at least one child.  It is part of the social construct, an offshoot of our armoured beliefs, it is something we just do.  Isn’t it?! We’ve lost much of the modus operandi to want to wholly realize a love so profound with our parter that we’re overflowing with generosity and feeling by extending this to another human being for the whole of their childhood and beyond.  We’re having children and then resenting parenting them so we give them to others to parent and educate them for us.

“Amelia and Reese Terrorizing the Village by Donnie Ray Jones https://flic.kr/p/qqEUX1

I once served a female Lawyer who clearly never loved her husband in that luscious, full throttle kind of orgastic way, and had really used him as a donor to spawn a son and daughter.  Her hate for him and her circumstances was palatable.  Her focus was on fixing her children in a loveless marriage.  She even slept with the kids and never him!  Can you imagine?!  It was sad and pathetic and frustrating for all involved, including me, as the practitioner.

You can have the greatest regimen and throw remedies at a situation like that, but until the individual chooses love and resonance, that broken wheel is never going to turn out right, and neither are the kids.  I’ve written another article on why love and intimacy are critical for the health and well-being of our children, regardless of whether they’re in the spectrum or not here.

We’re, sadly, seeing giving birth more as an intellectual milestone of achieving just one more more rung in the accomplishment factory of our driven natures through false expectations.  Add to that state of mind, or lack thereof, our Genetics, toxic loads in the way of GMO’s, vaccines, DNA complications, circumcision, mental anguish, and intellectual robotics and you have a dynamic recipe for creating a child suffering ASD issues; vaccinated or not!

We’ve forgotten how to simply be, postured more as widgets to false authority and the expectations of others than on fulfilling our own true desire programs through love and a full embodied sense of our individual selves, which can at times include love for another human being, but not necessarily.  I know plenty of women, and men too, who ignore their artistic or musical abilities for a law or medical degree instead, but try a side order of parent-hood with disastrous consequences.  We diminish the wisdom in the arts (or other more personal fulfillments) and herald the capacity to sort intellectually in the most mechanistic and materialistic of ways.

"Tears" by Thomas Leuthard https://flic.kr/p/dkvRJ9

“Tears” by Thomas Leuthard https://flic.kr/p/dkvRJ9

Years ago, I served a writer Mom of two autistic boys (a rare case of non-vaxxed children) who made herself go to University for Pharmacy, working dispensing pills while wearing her Birkenstocks.  She was a full-fledged granola Momma, working a socially expected paradigm that was totally incongruent with her values.  She wasn’t even close enough to the cash register to guide patients to the more resonant Homeopathic Medicines that she loved and used at home; her true personal preference as she hated Big Pharma and pill pushing Doctors.  She lived from a state of utter incongruence and she had the symptoms to prove it.  She wrote poetry on her off-hours while totally exhausted from 12 hour shifts.  She despised her life and believed that she must settle for her present existence in order to clothe and feed her sons.  Her husband was an artist too.

By systematically procreating, without an ensouled thought for the outcome of this choice we starve our babes of a becoming functionally whole.  This is why, as a function of evolution, we’re seeing less diseases of the physical body like Cholera and more conditions related to our armoured beliefs, minds, spirit devoid of a true embodied wisdom.  Spiritual diseases like Autism, Schizophrenia and drug abuse (recreational and pharmaceuticals) are on the rise.  The trajectory indicates that ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) will become epidemic.   At the time of this writing 1 in 45 children will be diagnosed as Autistic.

I know this phenomenon to be true, I suffered this dynamic myself and I wrote a book, entitled, “The Path To Cure; The Whole Art of Healing Autism” for the same reasons I’ve cited above.  In the book, I cite my own son’s exodus from the Autism Spectrum due to Heilkunst treatment, but not to the exclusion of my former gestures of feeling prey to the expectations of others.  I was a broken, bereft automaton educated by a traditional University and working in public enterprise that did not give a rat’s hiney whether I ever had an individual thought in my head or not.

I was a Financial Advisor working for government with a dental plan and a pension, an armoured cog in a very big unfeeling wheel.  I was a widget, a contrivance of cloned cyborgs, working in 8 X 12 blue felt cubicles next to other cyborgs.  I hated it and my armoured hate produced a replicate of my intellectual stimming, a babe, who mimicked my chronic fears and anxieties devoid of speech with chronic rocking back and forth with little eye contact.  Are you starting to feel the connection?  Jordan had no way of being cured until I addressed the lack of connection to my true essential self … the false ego had to go!

Michael J. Lincoln, in his book “Messages From The Body,”  illustrates Autism as:

“Who’s the parent here?” There is childish behaviour by the adults going on around them, resulting in the individual’s feeling unprotected and vulnerable to invasive influences. In particular, the child is likely to be responding to their mother’s situation, feelings, and disrupted functioning. There is an experience of being helpless to cope with their situation, and it indicates that their emotional needs are not being met. They feel like they and their needs are being relegated to the back burner, and that they are being pushed aside by their family (mother in particular). It undermines their immune system and their ability to take care of themselves. It arises when the adults are more concerned about their own immediate comforts and convenience than they are about the welfare of the child, or when they operate with beliefs that teach the child that the child or they don’t have what it takes for the child to be perfectly safe and healthy.

“Out there.” They are an autistic or schizophrenic who is incapable of dealing with the demands of life. They live in constant fearfulness and overwhelm experiences. It is a “re-evaluation” of their life purpose, in which the essence processes the last several lives while not being in a position where they have to take care of themselves or anything else. Whatever family and/or genetic processes were involved in the precipitation of the disorder were part of the destiny design.

“Feeling-phobia.” They were so devastatingly but super-subtly trained to avoid awareness of the emotions as a child that it has resulted in a breakdown of the physical system for doing so. They come from a severely denial-dominated and or repressive dysfunctional family in which any contact with what people were really feeling would have resulted in a calamitous collapse of the whole family.

Here’s a video based on Wilhelm Reich’s book, “Children Of The Future” that may explain the gist of this article an how we produce, and alternatively prevent, armouring and gestures of Autism more clearly:

In summation, the microbiological diseases were designed to furnish the physical and etheric bodies with enough challenges to help along their incarnate capacities for this next phase of evolution.  We’re at the precipice of fully integrating the self, our ontic organization (as per Rudolf Steiner), or individuality.  Think iPhone, iPad, iMovie, etc.  Perhaps you’ll also find it interesting that Autistic children generally demand an iEducation based on individual mentorship rather than conforming to the expectation of a one size fits all educational approach most of us were subjected to.

We used to all more or less do the same thing in the post industrial age, working in offices, wearing the same suits.  Now we’re striving for autonomy and sovereignty.  The challenge, now, becomes ontological and the condition most associated with this task is Autism.  It is said that we’re all in the spectrum to a degree.  The genetic miasms most associated with Autism are Syphilis and Lyme which, as mentioned prior follows on the heels of Cancer as per timeline treatment under the Heilkunst umbrella of protocol.

18 Reasons Why Folks Are Already Using Heilkunst Medicine To Cure Their Ills

The Principles:

Heilkunst is fast becoming the principled medicine of choice of families who are sick and tired of temporary band aid solutions or promised cures that don’t yield results.  More and more individuals are steering away from chemical drugs and toxic allopathic vaccines as a mode of treatment, either preventatively or otherwise.  Dr. Mercola cited a few years back that drugs are the number one killer in North America.  

Now that Tylenol and ibuprofen have more recently been proven to increase the likelihood of heart disease in regular users by more than 50%, folks are turning to simple, cost efficient, effective Heilkunst treatment.  By using the principle “like cures like,” on the sound basis of homeopathic law, folks are finding that sequential treatment, in addition to addressing the Genetic roots, provides few or no symptoms to hyper manage down the road in their children or themselves.

For those incessant earaches, Heilkunst treats dynamically the presentation of the symptoms.  For example, a right-sided earache with a high fever, red glistening face, and a quick onset around midnight, is easily resolved with the homeopathic remedy “Belladonna.”  However, if the tonic disease, “Tuberculosis”, is not cured outright, in the proper sequential order, the symptoms will keep flaring again and again.  It takes a well-trained Heilkunst Practitioner to help you and your family gain its liberty and freedom from chronic illness.  

Once we’ve exacted this art and science based on Dr. Samuel Hahnemann’s 225 year old principles, you can wholly get on with your life, with few impingements on your healthy life force physically, mentally, and emotionally.

https://arcanum.ca/2015/01/26/3621/

Here’s 20 reasons why we’ve chosen Heilkunst Medicine as our treatment of choice for ourselves, our family, and our patients for the last few decades:

  1. Heilkunst has no side effects.  
  2. Heilkunst, and the remediation used, can’t cause harm (homeopathy is approved by the FDA  and unlike modern drugs, has never had a history of being pulled from the shelves due to adverse reactions).
  3. Heilkunst is relatively inexpensive in that you pay now -play later, without all the uncertainty, medical bills, or drugs to be purchased long-term.  At the time of this writing, the family rate can keep treatment below $100 US per hour per follow up when 3 family members are in treatment.
  4. There are no geographic limitations and no waiting room line-ups.  We treat patients internationally by phone, Skype, Facetime, or Google Hangouts.

  1. Grow your resourcefulness at home.  Bee Stings and Bruises: Homeopathic First Aid For At Home Or At The Cottage. Have you ever wanted to know what homeopathic remedy will resolve a bee sting for your horse? Have you wondered what to do when your babe falls and scrapes her knee? Have you ever asked yourself what can be done to resolve sunstroke? We can teach you what to do in our Beestings and Bruises homeopathic First Aid course, available here: https://sellfy.com/p/chVr/
  2. Heilkunst and homeopathy have over 200 years of success to supports its curative claims. Much of the research has been published in conventional medical and homeopathic journals. (See here: https://www.homeopathic.com/Articles/Homeopathic_research/Scientific_Evidence_for_Homeopathic_Medicine.html). Also here’s a list of testimonials from our own patients https://arcanum.ca/about/testimonials/ .
  3. Heilkunst principles work safely on infants, children, the elderly, pets, olympic jumpers, race horses, and livestock.  (https://arcanum.ca/2013/01/09/animals-and-heilkunst/)  Here’s a link to our book for dogs and cats:

http://www.amazon.ca/The-Natural-Home-Pharmacy-Dogs-ebook/dp/B00R8GVMR4

http://www.amazon.ca/Natural-Home-Pharmacy-Cats-Homeopathic-ebook/dp/B00TQBLKPI/ref=sr_1_5?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1444086484&sr=1-5

8) International countries, such as Europe, India, South America, Australia, and Cuba use homeopathic principles.  The latter has had great success rate treating a bacterial issue.  Politically and financially, the folks in this country don’t qualify for Big Pharma solutions to a bacterial infection such as leptospirosis, which can be problematic after flooding, so they have to find more creative and cost-effective solutions. One homeopathic nosode (which is a remedy prepared from a product of disease such as infected tissues or the exact microbe), was provided to 2.5 million people as a safe and effective form of homeopathic immunization.  See here:  https://arcanum.ca/2009/05/17/homoprophylaxis-in-cuba-a-monumental-success/ .

9) Heilkunst has a cure rate up into the high 90th percentile in chronic and acute cases.  When peeling the onion through sequential treatment and then addressing the chronic Genetic Miasms, we’re able to absolve you of your disease matrices consistently with clear, realizable principles. That’s so much better than having to keep taking chemical drugs and dealing with the side effects of those drugs.

10) Heilkunst treats the root cause of your diseases so that your lifeforce is free to avail itself of its higher functioning purpose. Lots of folks we work with find their soulmate, find their perfect work, successfully have a baby, resolve chronic depression, etc., so that they can be the fully self-actualized being they were intended to be.

11) Historically, Heilkunst has saved many lives by curing cholera, dengue fever, malaria, scarlet fever, autism, cancer, etc..  With regards to the latter two in the list, you can listen to my own story here:  

http://www.thepathtocure.com/the-path-to-cure/

12) Your Heilkünstler is just a phone call away at 1-877-233-0779.  We can often serve you within several hours from the comfort of your own home, while you stay in your pyjamas under warm blankets with some hot water with lemon and honey.  We’ve broadcasted remedies from our CoRe Bioresonance Feedback system to patients all over the world, who report feeling better within minutes: https://arcanum.ca/faq/what-is-the-inergetix-core-system/

13) The laws of nature are not plastic or malleable.  They’ve remained tried and true for over 225 years since they were founded by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.  Think about it, the laws of gravity never take the day off … neither does the law of cure, “like cures like”.

14) Homeopathic remedies found over 200 years ago in pharmacy rubble are still as efficacious as they are today which means you don’t have to keep purchasing more given their indefinite shelf-life.  Also, you can put one drop of the mother tincture, or globule, into a dropper bottle and use indefinitely or share it with a friend or family member in need.

15)  Homeopathic remedies are easy to dispense and kids and animals love taking them too.  Watch wee Willow take her dose here: https://arcanum.ca/2015/07/27/wee-willow-takes-her-remedy/

16) Heilkunst teaches the art of self-mastery.  Over time, the patient takes the reins of their health into their own hands, gaining autonomy and independence.  You will never feel put down or condescended by any member of our staff or the Practitioners.  In fact, we’re here to serve you, not the other way around.

17)  We can treat children preventatively for childhood diseases with the highest rate of efficacy.  We’ve been successfully preventing diseases in children and adults for measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, polio, flu, hep. A, B, C, dengue and yellow fever, and malaria for over several decades now, with not one reported case of the incidence of disease:https://arcanum.ca/2012/10/21/hahnemanns-discovery-of-homeoprophylaxis-homeopathic-immunization/

18)  We can help with individuals suffering the ill effects of vaccine damage through detoxification protocols here: https://arcanum.ca/2014/06/13/detoxing-from-the-vaccines-our-specialty/

Here’s a testimonial of a wee babe who suffered autism spectrum issues after her Hep B vaccine:  https://arcanum.ca/2015/01/22/full-autism-recovery-with-thanks-to-heilkunst-medicine/

 

There you have it;  incentive for you to make a deeper commitment to this God-imbued system of  medicine for yourself and your family.  I know it turned out to be “The Path To Cure” for myself and my son.  Feel free to comment with your own testimonial as to why Heilkunst is the best choice for you and your family.

Others Who’ve Also Chosen Homeopathy and Heilkunst:

While not a reason to choose Heilkunst Medicine, it is fun to know that others in our popular culture have also chosen to use its principles.  Famous and privileged folk, even though they could well afford allopathic treatments, have chosen to use homeopathic medicine instead, such as  Dizzy Gillespie, Muriel Hemingway, The British Royal Family, The Beatles, Mother Teresa, several Catholic Popes, Mahatma Gandhi, John D. Rockefeller, Bill Clinton, and Tony Blair.  If you want more on this, you can read, The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy, by Dana Ullman.

Cancer and How We Solve It Dynamically With Heilkunst, Homeopathy, Orgastic Potency, Oxygen, Iodine, Vitamin D and Juicing

imgres

Over a decade ago, or more, after locating a hard tumour in my left breast of some significance (about an inch or more in circumference), I decided that if I had it biopsied, I’d risk the spread of the highly contained cells to the rest of my body.  For some unknown reason, I just trusted that if I had an ear that obviously had a function, why did I moralize that I needed to cut out a tumour in my breast and then fry my beloved breast with radiation and chemical therapy.  Cutting it out was beyond my comprehension.  It just felt deeply counter-intuitive to me.

I figured that the tumour had a function and that it would leave of it’s own accord if and when it was finished teaching me why it was there.  Some family and friends freaked out when they found out that I wasn’t going the allopathic route to irradiate it.  If you read my first book, “The Path To Cure; The Whole Art of Healing,” you’ll know that I called my tumour “Pansy” as I always sought an imaginary friend when I was a kid with the same name who would like to do some of the cool stuff that I was into like building tree forts and drawing for hours.

At this juncture in my careworn life (after my son was safely out of the Autism Spectrum), it seemed that Pansy had suddenly shown up with an encoded message.  When I finally just sat down on the top of a mountain after trying to flee from her in terror, I learned that she simply wanted to engage with more fulfilling activities like going to the art gallery, learning how to draw again, taking afternoon naps and having really delicious sex with her resonant other.  At the time, I’d just let go of a very stale marriage.  It was up to me whether or not I chose to listen to her message.

I started taking the homeopathic remedies for a hard, left sided breast tumour and I went out and bought a $700 juicer.  I’d heard about Dr. Gerson‘s approach to annihilating Cancer in many of his patients.  He was so successful, that his institute was asked by the American Medical Association to leave the United States.  As a result, they set up shop in Mexico and Hungary.  If you want to know more about the allopathic approach to cancer and why it’s become lethal to most cancer patients, read “Physician” by Richard Leviton or “Reclaiming Our Health” by John Robbins.  A documentary that is very good that few people know about on the reason that Cancer is not treated with success by the allopaths can be viewed here.

Years ago, I served an oncologist for cancer who refused to use his own protocols.  He cited that after he effectively demoralized the patient by telling them that they only had 6 months to live, he literally poisoned them to death with radiation and chemotherapy.  I was amazed at how candid he was.  Seven years later, he’s still living today, cancer free, as an outdoor adventure tour guide far off the grid in another country.  He chose to give up allopathic medicine as a result of reading the book “Physician” and solving his own Cancer Matrix outright.  He too, is in love with his new life.

Cancer proliferates in an acidic and anaerobic (airless) environment.  It seeks out one specific thing to sustain it; sugar.  The individual is trying to suck the sweetness from life like a butterfly with a broken proboscis (insect-like straw).  I had a patient in the cancer matrix whose allopathic physician recommended that she consume “Boost.”  If you’ve read the ingredients, you’ll see quickly why this is actually counter productive and can actually harm a patient’s delicate health:

To solve my own Cancer matrix, I applied Heilkunst Principles which included the homotonic homeopathic remedies for the issues on my timeline where I’d rescued others to the exclusion of myself in addition to the Cancer Miasm coming down my family line.  I also chose to adopt Dr. Max Gerson’s regimen to flood my system with alkaline-rich foods like raw carrot, kale, beet, apple and ginger juices.  I also upped my vitamin D, iodine, and oxygen therapy by getting lots of cardio exercise in well-treed forests where I still nordic walk for several hours each week.  I also let go of my stale marriage and found my resonant lover.  I also learned to draw, paint, meditate, photograph, and write poetry and Pansy then let me go within about 6-8 weeks.  I actually recall writing that I really missed her.  She’d taught me a lot!

Anita Moorjani, who wrote the book “Dying To Be Me,” nearly died from stage 4 cancer and then also met the essence of her animating force through a near death experience.  Thankfully, she then came back to dissolve every one of her tumours in a small number of weeks using no treatment therapy known to man or woman; her own state of mind.  I too had to learn to “surrender” to learn to be me before my pansy would let go of me.  I had to learn how to keep committing to the myself and the force that chooses to love and animate me.  The false ego, full of ugly attachments, had to go!

Unearthing the roots of my feminine marginalization in our culture led me into a decade of research on why 80% of cancer occurs in women, 80% of the time in our sex organs.  I went on a mission to suss out the route cause and in the process, I tripped over God. Not the sistine chapel God with the white hair and definitely not the God of Church-ianity, but the gnostic unutterable silence that first started it’s oscillation between the masculine and feminine force that created all of life from the most profoundest of love; the very essence of our very human nature, the God of the Pleroma.  I wanted to know the very essence of the source of the all.  My tumour led me to one of the keys to the Kingdom.

In case you’re curious,  I’m working on a new memoir in that vein entirely, now, and can’t even remotely imagine how I could have once lived the cancer paradigm; the un-lived life while trying to rescue others to the exclusion of myself. Thankfully that state of mind seems eons away, or was it?  I’ve reclaimed my health, recommitted once again, and have repaired my proboscis.  Now, others consult with me, and my husband who uses CoRe Bioresonance Feedback to solve their own cancer matrix.  Each one of them have to learn how to do get the sweetness from their lives, in a similar way, for themselves while drinking the nectar of lots of juiced carrots on many afternoons between the sheets.

 

 

 

Why Didn’t my Doctor Tell Me Chemo Kills?

“Originally written by F. William Engdahl. First appeared: http://journal-neo.org/2015/06/03/why-didn-t-my-doctor-tell-me-chemo-kills/

Permission to reproduce this article by New Eastern Outlook.”

In my daily research I came across a report so alarming I put aside planned writing in order to bring this to the attention of those who care about life. It has to do with one of the main treatments for cancer used in modern medicine—chemotherapy. New research has documented that chemotherapy, far from ridding anyone of cancer actually feeds the growth and spread of cancer.

Sometimes it almost seems like the drugs industry works overtime to find new ways to hurt, cripple or even kill us. Scientist Peter Nelson of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle in a write-up of a study of why cancer cells were so easy to kill in the lab but not inside our bodies, found that healthy cells damaged by chemotherapy secreted more of a protein called WNT16B which boosts cancer cell survival. “The increase in WNT16B was completely unexpected,” Nelson told AFP.

He added that,“WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumor cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy.” That would explain why in cancer treatment, tumors often respond well initially, followed by rapid regrowth and then resistance to further chemotherapy.

The study was conducted by a team of scientists from different cancer research centers, universities as well as from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories. It was published online in August 2012 in the journal Nature Medicine. Among their alarming conclusions was that, “The expression of WNT16B in the prostate tumor microenvironment attenuated the effects of cytotoxic chemotherapy in vivo, promoting tumor cell survival and disease progression.”

Mustard Gas Toxin

While their study results were alarming enough, more alarming is the complete absence of aggressive action to reexamine the entire field of cancer treatment. Chemo’s origins go back to World War I research into the human effects of exposure to mustard gas. Scientists discovered that the gas was a potent suppressor of blood cell production. During World War II researchers at Yale University School of Medicine in further study of nitrogen mustards, reasoned that an agent that damaged the rapidly growing white blood cells might have a similar effect on cancer. Left out was how to target only cancer cells and not healthy cells. In December 1942, the scientists gave several patients with advanced lymphomas (cancers of the lymphatic system and lymph nodes), a chemotherapeutic drug intravenously. Their improvement was called remarkable. The media concentrated on the remarkable improvement and did not bother to note that soon after treatment all were dead.

The chemotherapy revolution in cancer treatment was off and running. In the 1950’s the first chemo drug used commercially was mustine or Chlormethine. Mustine under the code-name HN2 is a chemical warfare agent. Adverse effect include: “Hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylaxis…Nausea, vomiting and depression of formed elements in the circulating blood…Jaundice, alopecia, vertigo, tinnitus and diminished hearing.”

The research and development of mustine as a possible anti-cancer chemotherapy was led by Cornelius P. Rhoads, director of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in wartime secrecy and published in 1946 after the war. Rhoads came to Memorial Sloan-Kettering from the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research.

There during the 1930’s as part of the Rockefeller family’s obsession with eugenics, Rhoads spent six months in Puerto Rico, a stateless island often used covertly for human experimentation with new drugs.

In Puerto Rico in 1931Rhoads wrote a letter to a friend in Boston where he stated, “Porto (sic) Ricans are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. What the island needs is not public health work but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off eight and transplanting cancer into several more.”

Rockefeller family spin doctor, Ivy Lee, launched a major damage control campaign over the scandal and managed to get Rhoads on the cover of Time as a “life-saving” hero.

Deadly consequences

The subsequent use of toxic chemotherapies on perhaps millions of cancer patients since then have hardly been encouraging. Published side effects of today’s chemo drugs, the largest share of which are made by Roche, are horrendous. They include “depression of the immune system, often by paralysing the bone marrow and leading to a decrease of white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Anemia and thrombocytopenia… sepsis, or as localized outbreaks, such as Herpes simplex, shingles, or other members of the Herpesviridea.”

It gets worse. Because of the chemo resulting in immune system suppression, patients often get typhlitis, a life-threatening gastrointestinal complication of chemotherapy. Typhlitis is an intestinal infection which may manifest itself through symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, a distended abdomen, fever, chills, or abdominal pain and tenderness. Typhlitis is a medical emergency. It has a very poor prognosis and is often fatal.  It can cause infertility failure in men and ovarian failure in women. All that in addition to the well-known hair-loss, dry skin, damaged fingernails, a dry mouth (xerostomia), water retention, and sexual impotence.

In 2004 the Department of Radiation Oncology, Northern Sydney Cancer Centre, Australia, conducted a long-term investigation into the contribution of chemotherapy to 5-year survival in 22 major adult malignancies. The results were shocking: The overall contribution of curative and adjuvant cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA. The study came to the following conclusion: “..it is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival. To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.”

Chemo is massively toxic and kill any rapidly dividing cell, tumor or normal. The three best-selling cancer drugs worldwide in 2013 were all made by Roche—Rituxan, Herceptin and Avastin. For all three top chemo drugs sales totaled more than $21 billion.

And the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center now documents how chemotherapy drugs act as carcinogens—they cause cancer which is why, depending on the patient’s immune strength and dosage, within five years a staggering number die after the chemo that was to have saved them.

I was in Beijing several years ago on a speaking tour and had severe back pain after the long flight. My Chinese publisher organized a treatment from a doctor trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). She was also the grand-daughter of the chief TCM doctor of the Last Emperor who she said was still alive and chipper at 93 and passing his wisdom on to her and her brother. She told me at the Beijing medical university where she studied, the students were told, “One third of patients die of the psychological shock of being told by a doctor that they have cancer. Another third die from the negative effects of chemotherapy and radiation. The last third simply die.”

It would be useful for all doctors in active practice perhaps to rethink the principal ethical mandate of all physicians since the time of Hippocrates– “nil nocere” – do no harm. The evidence is overwhelming now that chemotherapy only does harm. Would the oncologists promoting chemo to their patients ever take the same were the roles reversed?

This is why the Heilkunst approach is so effective: all aspects of the whole being and their environment are considered in their treatment.

“A very important aspect of this book is the discussion on how our own mental and physical state affects our pet’s health. We have all witnessed a pet’s ability to empathize. My rather large English Bull Terrier was famous for cuddling up (preferably on your lap) when a family member was upset. But what we need to understand is that their response to our well being goes beyond transitory sympathy. The actual depth to which they take on our issues is truly astonishing, potentially leading to their failing health, and must be addressed if we are to give our pets the best opportunity for health and vitality.

 

This is why the Heilkunst approach is so effective: all aspects of the whole being and their environment are considered in their treatment. Having worked in health care for many years, I know I cannot effectively provide lasting relief to someone by isolating one aspect of their life (e.g. pain) from another (e.g. emotions). The disconnect leaves too much room for the presenting problem to recur. The Heilkunst approach understands and addresses this vital synergistic connection so that the patient, whether human or furry, can flourish.”

Judy’s Cure; A Full Recovery With Heilkunst Medicine

“Where do I begin? March of 2012 was my worst nightmare ever. While drying my hair I noticed a lump on the left side of my neck. From that time on every day I woke up I had a new symptom from my hair falling out to rashes on my feet, face, back , stomach and legs. I had sores in my mouth, itchiness and the list goes on and on. I immediately phoned my doctor and she ordered stat blood work and a cat scan. That next week I saw the surgeon and was booked for a lymph node biopsy. I was told they were investigating lymphoma and/or leukemia. I lived in a nightmare, but if this is what it was I was going to fight this. I have a family that needed me and I was going to get through this.

I was hospitalized for something that was only supposed to be day surgery. While in surgery my platelets had dropped for no reason so then again another biopsy (bone marrow this time). I had every specialist imaginable taking care of me and every time one of them came to see me they each had a different diagnosis, they all told me that I had an Auto-Immune Disease but didn’t know what.

After 12 days still no diagnosis, I went home. The next month I was rushed back into hospital by ambulance for shortness of breath, put on puffers and stayed in again for another 8 days. Still no diagnosis! I was put through numerous biopsies from 2 lymph nodes, bone marrow, kidney and liver. Whatever it was my body was going through left me with a high protein level that affected my kidneys. Then I was referred to another specialist for my kidneys. She immediately wanted to start me on a treatment plan of steroids and chemotherapy. Working in the health care field and talking to my co-workers and a lot of investigation I refused the treatment plan.

This is when one of my co-workers had told me about Allyson McQuinn and that I should go see her. I thought, “if the doctors can’t find out what’s wrong with me how can she?” I didn’t go. I was getting so frustrated because I couldn’t go for walks or runs like I used to or even carry a laundry basket up the stairs without getting short of breath. I had no energy or ambition and was getting very frustrated. I gave in and called Allyson.

My first appt. with her I was amazed, she told me I was an easy case and would have me cured in 6 months (by June). I said to myself walking out of her office (if the doctors can’t find anything how can she?). I was desperate, at this point I was willing to try anything. She told me that I would be out walking again and carrying laundry up the stairs within a week. She was right I was. I was able to return back to work. I still had to do monthly blood work and doctors appointments.

From that day on every month, I had Heilkunst treatment and my blood work would come back with good results, my protein level was coming down and I was starting to feel like myself again. When I went back to my doctors and told them I was seeing a Wholistic Doctor and told them what she was doing they pretty much said, “Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it.” I kept doing it. They wanted to know all about her and put me off until June for my protein levels to return to normal before putting me on the treatment plan.

I am now put off again until January and am still having blood work and a follow up cat scan. I never thought I would feel better again. I am so glad that I kept putting off a treatment plan of putting poison into my body that would make me even sicker.

For anyone who is going through any kind of health issue or are on any medication for whatever reason I would suggest you see Allyson and get to the root cause of why and she will help you. I am off all of my medications except for two and hopefully will be coming off of those soon and am doing everything the “natural way”. I could not have gotten through this past year if it wasn’t for my family, co-workers (Natalie, who referred me) and especially Allyson for helping me through my worst nightmare ever.

Before getting sick I was very healthy and walking/running all the time. I just can’t say enough about her, she gets to the root cause and cures the problem, not treats it. Kudos to Dr. Allyson McQuinn, you are my HERO!!! I just can’t say enough about you, I am so glad I found you. You are my angel!! I have recommended so many people to you and they also have had excellent results. Every time someone tells me that they have a health issue going on I automatically say, “Oh, you should go see Allyson”. I tell them all about you and right now you are seeing most of them and they also can’t say enough about you.

Remember years ago people had no choice but to go the natural way because there was no medication or diagnostic equipment can could detect illness and people had no money for medication, today we have that choice. Thanks again Allyson, you have helped me so so much and I very grateful to Heilkunst Medicine. I love you and so does my family, you’re amazing!!!!”

Hugs,

Preliminary Signs of Cancer in Children and How To Takes Steps To Prevent It

Recently my daughter was asked to do some work for some family friends.  They’d also hired another gal to work alongside her.  When I met the other young lass, the first thing I noticed was the blue sclera (the eyeball is supposed to be white) of her eyes.  I felt my Clinician/Momma radar sink with disappointment.  The girl also felt beyond shy, sad, and somewhat invisible.

 

Blue Sclera of varying degrees in the eyes of Children

She was a Silicea Constitution, meaning that she tends to be more IQ, and recharges her energy more from being alone than social.  She alluded to the fact that school was joyless for her, another sign that something was up, as Silicea types usually revel in academic achievement, even at mind-numbing state based institutions.  This gal also clearly lacked much of any engaging warmth or enthusiasm I typically see in a healthy child.  I could feel myself working to discern just how protracted the issue might be in her using my trained radar.

Kids with the cancer state of mind, will show up as pale and exhausted, suffering repeated infections, tummy aches and weird unexplained fevers that rarely spike high and lusty enough to get the microbial job done.  The life-force is stuttering.  There can also be constant feelings of  frustration, feeling thwarted with undertones of the un-lived life, perhaps rescuing their parents or siblings typically to the exclusion of themselves.  They will feel weak and will complain of being bullied at home and at school.  Their bodies will feel either too hard and taut or the opposite, too lax and flaccid.

We’ll also see joint, leg, bone or chronic muscular pain, rashes, bleeding of the gums, weakness or “gone away feeling”, low blood pressure, low red blood cells, or persistent vomiting without nausea.  Look also for sudden vision changes that persist with the need for new prescriptions.  Watch also for sudden weight loss, vitality, a milky, whitish spot behind the pupils, persistent headaches over the eyes especially in the morning.  Also dizziness, chronic constipation, dreams of losses, undischarged grief and feelings of living in the past can be symptoms of the cancer state of mind.

Now, if you’re a parent reading this and alarm bells are going off in your mind and the feeling of terror pricks up your spine, then try to calm yourself as there is much that can be done with whole foods, supplements, homeopathics and therapeutic education.  While radiation and chemmotherapy are an option, it is important to know that they have less than 3% efficacy.  That’s right, chemotherapy and radiation have actually never been scientifically proven to cure cancer as per John Robbin’s book, Reclaiming Your Health; Exploding the Medical Myth and Embracing the Source of True Healing.

In the realm of preventative medicine, we can take action well before a tumor, lump or impairment of any kind sets in including rotational fasting, probiotic rich diets, whole foods and eliminating grains, sugars, coffee (highly acidic) and dairy.   The idea being that we need to alkalize, oxygenize, and heat up (a ketogenic state literally cooks out the cancer) the system.  We know that rotational fasts (starting with 3 days) and then 2 days a week thereafter can wholly reset the patient’s immune function, killing the cancer cells naturally.  That regimenal approach plus homeopathic medicine will give the patient a brilliant fighting chance at addressing the cancer before it progresses to infect it’s host.

I want you to be informed well in advance so that the issue can be arrested and reversed well before you’re ever referred to the oncologist in a state of abject terror.  Our kids deserve all the health and wellbeing available to them for their essential unfolding without suffering an ounce of invasive harm.

Always trust your instincts as you are your child’s best advocate, and never be afraid to seek a second opinion until you locate the resonance in care that suits you and your beloved babe.  Always question your Physician (allopathic or natural), asking them about cure rates and what laws of nature they’re operating on.  Be wary of trial and error approaches as your child is not a guinea pig.  If they repeat sentences that start with, “We’ll try this …” or “We’re doing the best we can …” that may be the time to seek out another approach/practitioner.  To prevent a disease is so much easier than trying to reverse the physical manifestation later.

A few years back, a mom came to me to address her grief after her son had sadly succumbed to cancer.  She had been a nurse for 40 years and cited that she’d spent most of her time at her son’s bedside angrily fighting off the repeated attempts to over-drug him with contraindicating medications.  She stated, “Rarely one hand was speaking to the other and they would have killed my son multiple times, earlier, if I’d not stepped in to stop them.” She wept at the memory of how, in the end, she’d felt he’d actually succumbed to the bouts of toxic treatments, not the disease itself, and she had the gruesome images to prove it.  An Oncologist that I once treated (for cancer) cited the same stating, “I hate my tools, Ally.  First I demoralize the patient by telling them that they have less than 6 months to live and then I literally poison them to death.”  Thankfully both these patients are still whole and healthy today.

I’m often asked the deeper question of why kids get cancer.  The truth is that it comes down the family line.  Disease has a resonant frequency so a woman with a familial predisposition for the state of mind for cancer will generally couple with a man unknowingly suffering with the same.  When the babe is conceived, they arrive from the birth canal doubly loaded from both sides.  Also, there is a karmic reason why an individual is challenged with the the disease described as a lack of immune function or sense of their essential self.  It is our job as Heilkunst Physicians to use principled regimen, natural medicine and therapeutic education to help prevent this phenomenon so that a kid can get back to just being a kid with natural verve and great enthusiasm.

In Pursuit Of Sweetness; How To Diagnose The True Meaning Of Diabetes

diabetes

If you are getting to know us here at Arcanum Wholistic Clinic, you’re probably beginning to recognize that Heilkunst Medicine looks at all disease matrices phenomenologically. What that means is that while allopathic science attempts to shut the symptoms down through palliation or suppression, we’re all about discerning the root cause and the reason you contracted with the disease state in the first place. Perhaps think of us as forensic health scientists. We feel that disease is not a cursory blip on your landscape, but that the roots should be thoroughly scoped out, not just at the biological level, but also at the level of your emotional resonance with this disease entity, if you will. The bottom line is why, spiritually, did you sign the contract with a disease like diabetes in the first place?

First of all, diabetes can be defined as, “not being able to extract the sweetness from life.”  Whether you’re born with this challenge or you develop the condition later in life as Type II, the phenomenon is the same. The diabetic sufferer will feel that they don’t have enough physical, emotional, or spiritual resources to actualize their goals and their dreams, so they try to garner it from other external sources like sugar. Alternatively, when in health, the individual will be able to effectively marshal their resources internally, activating their true desire function, living a life  of perpetual enthusiasm, excitement, and pleasure. Fully engineered health is an inside-out job, not an outside-in job, so if the pancreas can’t metabolize your sugars, it is due to the fact that you can’t easily metabolize a life fulfilled with generous doses of milk and honey.

Individuals suffering the “diabetic” state of mind will often display a persona that is “sickly sweet.”  Even if they harbour hostility, they generally won’t risk revealing their true feelings for fear of creating conflict. They will attempt to perpetuate that everything is just fine even when their environment is truly intolerable.  Also, they’re usually well-behaved children, rarely rocking the family boat, and hardly ever rebelling as teenagers. You will notice that they’re the type to  just put up with the expectations at school, as well, struggling to assimilate all of the information shoved at them while trying to memorize all the cold data just to appear as a “good student.”  Rudolf Steiner, founder of Waldorf Education and Spiritual Scientist, illustrates one aspect of the phenomenon around adult onset diabetes as,

“Imagine that you are stressing the memory capacity of the child excessively around the ninth or tenth year of life, that memory is used too much as a means in education. The consequences of this will show themselves only when the human being is in his thirties or forties or even later. Then the person will become either a sufferer of rheumatism or diabetes. Precisely when memory is used inappropriately around the ninth or tenth year of life, then this overwhelming of memory in childhood will show itself later in excessive deposits of metabolic products … On the other hand, when the child is required to use too little memory – when we are appealing too little to the child’s ability to remember – then we will call forth in later life a tendency for inflammatory processes of all sorts. To understand how the bodily conditions of one epoch of life are the consequences of the spiritual-soul conditions of another life-stage is one of the most important things that we must realize.” (Freely translated.)

This means that the way our state-based education system is structured around forced memorization, as opposed to allowing the individual to unfold their true desire program naturally (to know what they want to know when they want to know it out of inner enthusiasm and excitement), causes the expression of disease later on in life.  Another example of this that Steiner talks about in other lectures is that a child caused to awaken the intellect too early on in childhood, will be more likely to develop Alzheimer’s or dementia at the other end of their life.  Also, based on Harris Coulter’s research, the suppressive nature of vaccines will cause cancer and psychotic behaviours, exhibited as criminal activity later in life, alleviating the individual of their righteous discernment and natural compassion.  Literally, their ego (ontic or warmth organism, as per Steiner), sense of individuality, and autonomy is cancelled and suppressed, creating more cold, intellectualized, and disturbing behaviour where natural emotions are negated.

When we trump a child’s natural unfolding through self-learning, cancelling out their true desire program, more specifically around ages 9 and 10, we promote diabetes and joint issues like rheumatism and arthritis.  Again, rather than enabling them to engage with their own excitement and enthusiasm by helping them activate their individual desire program, through pushed curriculums, testing, and exams, you cause them to shut down their ability to derive the sweetness from their life.  The mineralization, usually showing up first in the extremities,  is a by-product of the phenomenon “ashes to ashes, dust to dust” or a form of “excarnation”; the body’s subconscious exit strategy as nature begins to take the reins back.  Consider arthritis in the hands for a moment.  If you love your life, giving and receiving out of a sense of love, grace, purpose, faith, and fulfillment, your hands will be warm, labile, motile, and wonderfully flexible.   The opposite occurs when we’re forced to remember things that don’t interest us, making us suffer feelings of entrapment or wondering where the pleasure is in all this useless memorization.  Sclerotic stiffening and rigamortus (even of the pancreas), if you will, is all a by-product of ignoring one’s true, individual, and ordained desire program.  Heilkunst Medicine is about clawing our healthy individuality all back from the negating forces that suppressed us so that we derive sweetness, love, joy, lability, and fulfillment.

We’re finding after 20 years of research that diabetes is also a by-product of the suppressive nature of vaccines, which alter the development of natural immunity (code term for sense of oneself).  Diabetes is a lack of self-actualization, a result linked to an autoimmune insult.

“Some of the best evidence suggesting diabetics may have an immune disorder include papers showing an increased incidence of classic autoimmune diseases like thyroiditis in Type I diabetics (Landin-Olsson, Karlsson, Dahlquistet al.1989a). That antithyroid antibodies are more common in females, but islet cell antibodies and diabetes are equally common in males and females, has raised questions on whether the disorders are causally related or are derived from common immunologic defects.”

At the early onset of diabetic symptoms, the pancreas will often become inflamed. As per Michael Lincoln, PhD., from his book, Messages From The Body, he describes the pancreatic inflammation as a difficulty in integration and expressing love. Fundamentally, the individual doesn’t believe that they deserve love, or they believe that, “Love is a poison apple.”  They will suffer a lot of guilt and feelings around an intrinsic lack of value. Their self-esteem will be broken due to feeling rejected by their family from an early age.

Lincoln goes on to elaborate with regards to diabetes as a, “Boulevard of broken dreams.”  You will see a deep longing for what might have been if not for all of the emotional shocks and trauma. They suffer a deep dislike for themselves, accompanied by a sorrow and a sense of “starving to death in the midst of plenty.”  Their despair will be one of desperation, demoralization, and depression. In order to restore health outright, in this regard, we need to also solve the state of mind in conjunction with the physical resolution. Otherwise, medicine will just keep falling short of its intended mark with patients and they’ll be left to manage solely with drugs.

Dr. Lincoln goes on to cite that the diabetes state itself, “is stuck on an ideal image of what life should be like, and they feel that their quality of life has been taken from them.”  This is the key!  So many of us in our 40s, 50s, and beyond were raised with shattered dreams as our parents and teachers unknowingly were not wholly versed in conscious actualization of their essential self.  Our broken mentors created instead a preponderance for forced learning, deprivation of our individuality, and squashing of our unique expression for creativity and wisdom.  Most of us felt secretly crushed by their demonizing of wealth due to post-war coupons, scrimping and saving against the debt-based economy.  Most of us never witnessed expressions of utter fulfillment, grace, ease, autonomy, and sovereignty.  How can they have mentored something that they were too suppressed to even know they had a right to create themselves?  They didn’t; so as a result we very often suffered a life devoid of sweetness, maximizing our harboured rage and physical and emotional suffering.

As a result, having been puppeted by disease, the diabetic sufferer will re-orchestrate “sweetness starvation” in their lives. Singh further cites that they have to rear their own selves, totally unaided, becoming “self-made,” martyred in the “share the misery” process. Due to their perpetual disappointment, they become embittered; the opposite of sweet! Diabetics are often cynical in their orientation as a result of the repeated emotional shocks and traumas on their life’s timeline; these are precisely what we systematically “mop up” with the use of homeopathic principles, during the course of Heilkunst treatment.

Due to the fact that actualizing our full essential selves was rarely mentored for us, we’re pinioned under poverty consciousness; idealizing that things should be different. Do you know how many sugar, coffee, alcohol, cannabis, chocolate, and doctor-induced drug addicts I serve?  These entirely unnatural, suppressive forces break the spirit, leaving the heavy imprint on the subconscious that we’re living in a “hostile world” with “fatalistic expectations of further complications and debilitations in our life,” as per Singh. At base, the diabetic actually does not feel that they deserve to have their basic needs met.  Sadly, most of us don’t when we truly study the phenomenon at hand.  By curing the underlying cause with the principles of Heilkunst and allowing for true joy and sweetness to seep into the newly emptied space through conscious creation, the reliance on refined sugars disappears. We can wholly over-turn a soured life completely devoid of sweetness, where control, manipulation, hyper-doing, super-seriousness, somberness, and worries about base survival are harboured .

As mentioned prior, Type I and II, from a phenomenological standpoint, are the same. The state of mind is the same, it just manifests itself at a different time; the spiritual contract signed pre-birth or sometime thereafter in the space-time continuum. The diabetes state of mind is one of feeling “love-starved” with a desperate longing to belong, however, they feel intensely emotionally insulated. This will often reveal itself further with thyroid complications (not able to express anger verbally) and also cancer (the unlived life, martyrdom, and rescuing others to the exclusion of the self). Tumors are just trapped energy walled off under the beliefs and armoring remaining improperly exhumed and undischarged.

Incidentally, you don’t need an allopathic doctor to pronounce you in a lordly fashion as a “diabetic.”  If you were a fly on the wall in my clinic office, you’d hear 95% of my patients cite that they have some form of addiction to chocolate and/or sugar.  Very typically, after serving everyone else in her world over the course of the day at her job, resourcefully providing her family with that requisite healthy evening meal and then cleaning up the kitchen and helping the kids with their homework, while the washing machine launches into yet another spin cycle, she eventually sits down, after a 14 hour day of abject servitude, with her sweet drug of choice.  Sugar suppresses anger.  It is no accident that anger turned inside on oneself is the anatomy of the tumor.  Diabetes is actually predominantly anchored to the Cancer Miasm and in Dr. Roger Morrison’s,  Desktop Guide to Keynotes And Confirmatory Symptoms, he cites that individuals suffering cancer crave chocolate.  The dots actually line up; the aetiology of a true diagnosis revealed.

Over time, this state of harboured rage will reveal itself as armored, self-protection as the urban hermit or the cat lady, who felt constantly blamed by those who birthed them that, “If it weren’t for them …”, ends up believing that they don’t deserve an intimate relationship first with themselves, or with others. They’ll eventually withdraw from society and others, shutting down any social involvement in any real or meaningful way, ensuring that their vulnerability is protected, feeding it with love-substitutes such as carbohydrates, sugars, bread, and pasta; their body, over time, becoming insulin-resistant.  Individuals living in families will even describe feeling “walled off,” lonely, and isolated. This is the level of root causation that we treat using Heilkunst principles of regimen, medicine, and spiritual cognitive therapies.  What do you want your sweet life to feel like?

How Vaccine Additives Affect Your State Of Mind : Another Vaccination Myth

I took a look at one aspect of vaccine efficacy yesterday, and today I want to examine an aspect of vaccine safety, but from a very different vantage point than you would normally encounter in vaccine articles. The list of additives and chemicals contained in the standard vaccine schedule is shocking, to say the least. There is a great number of toxic and carcinogenic substances, and common sense would dictate that we would want to exercise extreme caution about using any one of these, let alone such a long list of additives which children receive in the standard vaccination schedule.

For the purposes of today’s blog, rather than examine these toxins in the usual way, I want to illustrate some of them from the point of view of knowledge of the homeopathic materia medica. As you may remember, the symptom picture of every homeopathic remedy contains not only an image of certain physical symptoms, but also will embody a unique state of mind. Health functions out of a particular state of mind, and when it is impinged upon by disease, it will shift into the unique state of mind of the given disease.

Looking, then, at some of the vaccine additives from the point of view of their unique disease state of mind, we start to see a side of vaccination and its adverse effects based on this deeper image of a disturbed (away from health) state of mind. To the degree that a vaccine recipient has an underlying resonance for any of the diseases represented in the vaccine additives, they are susceptible to a strong reaction to the corresponding substance. Think of the overall state of mind of kids in the public school system, as well as the overall tone of our modern society as you read through these:

  • Alumina (aluminum) – A state of mind of dullness, and mental sluggishness. Slow mental processing, and a resulting irritability. The heart of this remedy is a state of mind which is confused about its own identity and purpose.
  • Calcarea Carbonicum – The state of mind of this disease is one which contains much anxiety about any number of things, including their own health, or ability to complete their work. The overall metabolism and immune function may be sluggish as a physical expression of the deeper state of mind, which is all about a struggle with fully engaging life.
  • Hura (Latex) – This is normally a remedy used in Heilkunst in the ‘ideogenic’ realm of disease, which has to do with the higher function of our mind, and its ability to see reality clearly as it is, and our place in it. Hura, more specifically, is a disease state of mind which feels separate or cut-off from society, where making true contact can seem impossible. Another side of this feeling is of being an outcast.
  • Mercurius – This is a fascinating disease state of mind. Mercurius is a kind of shape-shifter, in the sense of a con artists that keeps changing their identity and never getting caught. This disease produces many irrational impulses, and strange behaviours. As a physical toxin it has a strong affinity for the brain and nervous system, and this is seen in strange tone of emotions and behaviours in this remedy.
