Hippocrates, the father of Western medicine, is known for many wise sayings. Two of our favorites are “In the first place, do no harm,” and “let your food be your medicine.”
And we think that one of the best ways to do no harm in medical treatment is to let food be your medicine, so we stress nutrition in our practice. We believe that many chronic illnesses which are referred to as “diseases of civilization,” things like allergies, digestive problems, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers, among others, stem in large measure from a diet of foods we should not be eating.
Traditional psychotherapy is comforting to both the client and the therapist, but by itself it very rarely, in our experience, empowers people to effectively alter their lives. Understanding your problems is useful, but in itself it doesn’t create change. Most people develop habitual ways of thinking and behaving that control us just like we are driving through ruts on an icy road. We can know the ruts are there and even understand how they were created, but that understanding doesn’t help us drive a straight line. As smart as we are, we still watch ourselves drive into the same ruts time after time, and, when we get stuck again, we feel trapped and unable to steer out of those deeply hewn grooves.
Matrix Repatterning is a revolutionary new way of fixing physical problems and restoring optimal function, literally at the molecular level. There is nothing else like it. Everything else works on the symptoms of your problem. Matrix Repatterning corrects the cause. Matrix Repatterning is unique because it is based on the understanding that living tissue is constructed of a continuous fabric of cells, all pulling on each other, with tension in all directions. This cellular fabric acts as a strong, flexible, and stable matrix, enabling us to move, exert force, and withstand stress. In addition, the liquid crystalline structure of the matrix appears to generate and distribute electromagnetic energy throughout the body, both within and outside of the nervous system pathways.
In the Western world we tend to think of the mind and body as separate entities that operate under different and unrelated rules. Our view is that the mind and body represent different dimensions of the same thing, different realms in the same space. This is part of a concept we call the four worlds of healing. We have seen that things that change the mind and emotions change the body, and vice versa.
Emotional responses to significant life events cause a change in our physical state. Usually, this is temporary. Sometimes, however, due to the degree of stress associated with certain events or situations, our physiological responses to emotions become “locked in” and we never fully get back to our normal state. These “locked in” responses can persist even years after the precipitating event.
Scientists have discovered that living organisms have an electromagnetic nature. In fact, the presence of an electromagnetic field is one of the requirements for life. Living things generate electromagnetic fields is from the process of electrochemically charged particles moving through their bloodstreams and tissues. Electromagnetic fields are also generated by our molecular architecture, because all living things are made up of a liquid crystalline molecular matrix that interconnects all of our individual cells into one continuous fabric, and generates an electromagnetic field in response to stress and motion, through what physicists call piezoelectricity.
Living in our modern world makes us vulnerable to an onslaught of toxic chemical stressors, which can lead to imbalance and illness. These toxic factors range from pollution of the air, water, and soil, to the drugs, chemical additives, and preservatives we knowingly ingest. Harmful chemical changes can occur in our bodies because of our nutritionally deficient diets, and even because of our frenetic lifestyles. The end result is a departure from normal biochemistry, and often, the development of various diseases.
