The Key To Physical Health

I shall start as I mean to go on - direct and to the point...

The key to PHYSICAL health is EMOTIONAL health

All to often our emotional state is over looked in diagnosis and recovery. It is, in my opinion, the place to begin searching for the root cause of most health conditions. 

The body is an electrical circuit. Our brains are constantly firing electrical signals to the muscles and organs so they can function. When you get an electric shock from a car door, an escalator or even another persons touch, it's electricity. I'll briefly I explain how the electricity of your body actually works.

When resting your cells have more potassium ions inside and there are more sodium ions outside. Potassium ions are negative so the inside of a cell has a slightly negative charge. Sodium ions are positive, so the area immediately outside the cell membrane has a positive charge. However, there isn't a strong enough charge difference to generate electricity in this resting state.

When the body needs to send a message from one point to another it opens the 'gate'. When the membrane gate opens sodium and potassium ions move freely in and out of the cell. Negatively charged potassium ions leave the cell attracted to the positivity outside the membrane and positively charged sodium ions enter it moving toward the negative charge. The result is a switch in the concentrations of the two types of ions - and a rapid switch in charge. This flip between positive and negative generates an electrical impulse. This impulse triggers the gate on the next cell to open, creating another charge, and so on. In this way an electrical impulse moves from a nerve in your stubbed toe to the part of your brain that senses pain. This is also how we tell our heart muscles to contract, how our eyes tell our brain that what they just saw is the word 'brain', and how you are comprehending this article at all...


That's the tricky bit out of the way...

How does this relate to health and emotions...? SIMPLE 


What do you FEEL when you get nervous?

increased heart rate
swirling stomach
heavy breathing
sweaty palms

What do you FEEL when you get stressed?

tense jaw
tight abdomen
racing brain
increased heart rate

These are all PHYSICAL symptoms that begin as a reactive THOUGHT that transform into an ELECTRICAL SIGNAL which gets sent to the muscles and organs and impacts them. Now imagine if you are in a state of nervousness or stress the majority of the time. You can see how these physical symptoms are going to eventually turn into illnesses or disease through the constant attack on the organs and muscles. Most of us are under a state of stress most of the time due to life. Some of us decide to meditate, exercise or seek help from holistic practitioners.

Of course there is an essential place for these symptoms as they kick us into action in dangerous situations. But to be in this state of fight or flight more often than not is dangerous, and most of the time it is the under the surface bubbling stress which can be most insidious. 


Back to electricity... 


Thanks to the wonder of Chinese Medicine, knowledge of the Meridian Energy Pathways in the body and the modality of Systematic Kinesiology, we are able to tap into the energetic and electrical systems of the body and help it to prevent, release or retrain these electrical signals to calm down, or even stop fully, when we do not need them. This not only has miraculous results with stress, anxiety, panic attacks but also with fears, phobias, negative thought patterns and addictions. Even the NHS are cottoning on to the power of this work and are planning on using meridian tapping to treat anxiety and depression.
