Methods that don't
apply ‘retraining models’ which suggest that the body has forgotten its normal function and needs to be taught how to behave correctly again.
repeat the same treatments or requires exercises to be done over and over.
are often supported by vague ideas about why they work.
believe that they know how the body ‘should’ be operating and attempt to make the body match their idea.
often treats symptoms, not addressing the cause.
address one level of function at a time.
are usually incapable of finding direct, specific, relationships between various levels of function.
often offer temporary relief for chronic conditions.
understands that correct function is not forgotten, it is buried under layers of adaptation; no retraining is necessary if adaptations are eliminated.
knows that once adaptation is erased, it doesn't come back. No repetition is needed.
is based on a clear principle that operates the same way across all realms of function
makes no presumption about how the mind or body should be, and understands that no one actually knows those answers. Corrections can only remove obstacles to allow innate function to resume (reboot).
focuses on eliminating blocks to proper function
may address all levels of function, body, mind, emotion, energy, and chemistry in a single session.
routinely discovers and resolves specific issues that stem from interrelationships between various levels of function.
can offer permanent relief, even in chronic conditions, because memories, once erased, do not return.
ꙨMethod is a whole new way of understanding and delivering natural healing. It applies a very precise brain hack. It literally erases disruptive, outdated information from the brain. This information accumulated from past stress and trauma. It interferes with the natural smooth function of our mind and body.
Since the turn of the 21st century, several new threads of research have been coming to prominence. One is about how the functions of our mind and body are shaped by the future orientation of the brain. Another has found that memories are erasable. Taken together, these two concepts show us how our mind and body can become free of past patterns.
Our brains are continually making assumptions about the nature of our reality. These assumptions are based on past experiences. Every person, place or thing we encounter, becomes a prop in our story of reality. These stories have both short and longer-term expected outcomes. The "best" responses are built into the stories. The brain uses them to prepare the body for the expected outcome.
Mostly, this system works quite well. If you think about running, your heart rate will increase, preparing you for the exertion even if you never get out of your chair. If you catch the letters p-i-z-z-a out of the corner of your eye your stomach may begin to prepare for digesting food. If you see your good friend, your body may go into a state that is associated with relaxation and comfort. If you see flashing lights in your rearview mirror and hear a siren, you scan the traffic around you to look for a place to pull over.
Most of what we do is quite automatic. Our results then are adequate ... if our memories construct an adequate version of reality to produce useful action. But results vary. If the memories used to predict the future come from stress or trauma, or they are inaccurate or outdated, our results are likely to be poor. Our mind and body are then in a state of disharmony with reality. We perceive and react to a world that doesn't exist as we think it does.
Another name for psychology is human information processing. Information is sometimes what we mean when we are referring to “mind”. This not only includes information that can be brought to conscious awareness, it also information that controls muscles and physiological activities. So ꙨMethod is at its core mind-body healing.
So how do we recalibrate ourselves to get back to actual reality? Indeed, we don’t, in most circumstances. The brain is primarily designed to accumulate new information, not to eliminate the old. The new information is based on the old in ways that are specific to the part of ourselves which is being updated. Our muscles, physiology and our sense of self all update in roughly the same way: by developing new strategies to make up for the deficiencies of the old ones. We call this coping, adaptation or compensation. by compensating.
For instance, if I believe I have no value, I might engage in activities so that others may see as valuable. If I am successful in doing so, and receive positive reflection, I may feel better. It will not, however, change the part of myself that believes it is not valuable.
As it plays out in the musculoskeletal system, specific muscles or movements become associated with stress or trauma. The brain then compensates by avoiding reliance on those muscles. If we test them, we find that they are weak.
The brain must then develop new muscle recruitment patterns. These patterns omit the ‘distrusted’ muscles, which may never again be used as nature “intended”.
We must assume that our physiology -- the metabolic, organ, and biochemical systems in the body -- operate in the same way. They also must compensate for outdated, habitual assumptions about how the body needs to operate.
But physiology is far more obscure in its activity. While muscles can be tested and emotional experience can be directly known, real-time evaluation of physiology is far less certain and more complex.
There is a continual interplay between toxins, microorganisms, nutritional status, and genetic expressions that determine our physiological expression. Our physiology is also operating in the service of conscious and unconscious perceptions of the self and our environment. These perceptions are also subject to past (mis)information as well.
Using natural methods like chiropractic and acupuncture in new ways, ꙨMethod focuses the brain on this misinformation and essentially dissolves it. Like rebooting your computer, the old memories are cleared out, and your mind and body have a fresh start. Like an anti-malware program, it runs in the background. You don't have to know exactly what is being cleaned out.
The first step in ꙨMethod is deciding what repetitive activity or symptom of you want to eliminate. We might begin with a question like “what would you like to leave without, today?” That can be almost anything: an emotional state, a repetitive self-destructive behavior pattern, body pain or stiffness, or an internal symptom.
There is a principle of alternative medicine that “anything can cause anything”. ꙨMethod finds and addresses these hidden causes and relationships. Mental and emotional patterns or biochemical issues may cause symptoms in the body. Issues of the body may manifest as mental and emotional suffering.
The brain’s attempts to compensate for past issues (that are actually now gone) can cause energetic and structural disharmonies. ꙨMethod erases the outdated information that has resulted in those imbalances.
Most healing methods offer gradual improvement -- when they work. Tissues heal gradually. Attitudes and beliefs must, in most psychotherapeutic systems, be unearthed one at a time, experienced, analyzed and understood. ꙨMethod systematically disassembles the underlying patterns and erases the information.
The result is the “zero-point”: the point at which the brain is no longer viewing the current problem though the lens of the past. The muscles simply work as they should, and the heavy life issue now seems light.
This transformation often takes place in a single session.
