“.What do you Remember when you Forget to Remember?”

 I am embarrassed to admit I was a little reluctant to begin reading John Flaherty’s new book, ."Addiction Unplugged"” Yes, he generously provided me with a copy, and I knew I could not, not read it! 
I was expecting another quasi-academic treatise into the therapy and practice of addiction treatment and to be quite honest due to recent experience, I had had my fill of those. How wrong can you be?
Instead, by reading"Addiction Unplugged"  I have undergone an amazing, experiential journey into change. My change…..the book brings the reader face to face with critical life issues and then provides solutions to overcome the challenges. It does that by means of hypnotic  languaging patterns and some other powerful tools taken from NLP as well as the remarkable power of Hawaiian, Ho’pono’ pono. This roughly translates to “make it right”. John uses the Hawaiian technique as a hugely  potent  re-framing tool which makes the book itself a near miraculous healing strategy. He does this by inviting the reader to examine  distressing events of the past. This is not an invitation to wallow in the painful emotions that surface. Instead, we acknowledge the  uncomfortable trigger with a simple “thank-you”. This stills the turmoil and brings peace to the event. The occurrence is no longer a drama and we do not need to spend hours processing the feelings that bubble to the surface. What happened, happened.! It was part  of the developmental journey we call life. We are now ready for the next step, which is acceptance and the learning that goes with it. “I am sorry, please forgive me.” We are really detaching from all blame and judgement. We dealt with the events as best we could. We had no resources to behave differently, but now we do, “thank you”. Personally, I found this to be hugely powerful when it came to reviewing certain happenings in my own life, not least of all was my own “rehab” journey.
In 2011 I was invited to join a new rehabilitation project that was being launched in a breathtaking location on the tropical island of Koh Samui I was asked to join the team, not as an addiction counselor , which I am not,but as a meridian energy technique specialist to aid the treatment process as it helped the clients to make their way back to sobriety. I can only say how disappointed I was to witness the dysfunction inherent in the “Center” itself which was sadly also reflected in the amount of relapse experienced  when people returned to the environment they called home.
During my stay there, I witnessed  and participated in a drama fully worthy of Greek tragedy . I was present and witnessed the public sacking of the clinical director during a staff meeting that had been stage managed for that very purpose. I felt like Judas when the new director came over and hugged me after the meeting in an effort to elicit my unwilling support.
Events quickly unraveled. The new director was deeply committed to a 12 step approach and my fate was quickly sealed when I made an impassioned plea that it was essential the residents came to recognize their power and not their frailty. I wish I had this book then, because  I could have waved it in the faces of those who sought to control by fear and instead demonstrate that to heal those who craved  to break free from addiction, could do so from a place where they could see  that they were never separated from  the source  of their own power  which would  unfailingly provide them with the strength to find their own healing. This message comes over strongly, well done John for bringing it for all of us to see!  "Addiction Unplugged" is an essential read for  everybody addict or non-addict, therapist or non-therapist. I urge you all to beg, borrow or steal a copy and let it assist you on your own journey, because by doing this You cannot Not create a better experience of life, you know!

Balancing the Brain.

Are the two hemispheres of your brain balanced? Generally this is not the case. People seem to be either left brain or right brain dominant. See the diagram below.... it's wonderful to be analytical but wouldn't it be even more wonderful if you were both analytical and creative at the same time? If you are predominantly left brain you are using only 50% of your full potential. This is like going into the boxing ring with one arm tied behind your back. Contact us if you would like to learn how to balance the hemispheres. Remember, even Picasso had to book!balance his cheque book

In general the left and right hemispheres of your brain process information in different ways. We tend to process information using our dominant side. However, the learning and thinking process is enhanced when both side of the brain participate in a balanced manner. This means strengthening your less dominant hemisphere of the brain. Listed below are information processing styles that are characteristically used by your right or left brain hemisphere.

The left side of the brain processes information in a linear manner. It processes from part to whole. It takes pieces, lines them up, and arranges them in a logical order; then it draws conclusions. The right brain however, processes from whole to parts, holistically. It starts with the answer. It sees the big picture first, not the details. If you are right-brained, you may have difficulty following a lecture unless you are given the big picture first.

Heal Allergies Fast with a Simple Acupressure Technique! By Alister Bredee
TAT is a swift and powerful means of affecting Behavioral Change by changing negative emotions, past trauma, limiting beliefs and physical symptoms quickly, painlessly and very effectively. It frequently yields results where everything else has failed. You owe it to yourself to take a close look at it! It is one of the most effective Behavioral Change Therapies out there! California Acupuncturist Tapas Fleming developed TAT or Tapas Acupressure technique. The technique based on Chinese Medicine involves holding certain acupuncture points whilst focusing on the problem requiring treatment. It came about a few years ago when the focus of Tapas's practice was the treatment of allergies. At the time she was using a treatment devised by Dr.Devi Nambudripad called NAET. This required the patient to avoid the allergen for a period of 24 hours after treatment. In many cases this was fine but in instances of severe allergy it could also mean the person was restricted to a bread and water-eating programme for a full day after treatment. This could be very stressful particularly in the case of children. One afternoon during a lull in patient workload she had an insight to use Urinary Bladder 1 to solve her dilemma. UB 1 or "Eyes Bright" is an acupuncture point located on the edge of the inner eye, adjacent to the nose. She found that if she used this point along with the third eye and the occipital ridge at the back of the head, her patients could be desensitised to their allergy and could then return to a normal diet as soon as they got home. This overcame the whole stressful problem of 24 hours avoidance. Moreover, she discovered it wasn't necessary to needle the points, merely holding them whilst thinking of the reactive substance was sufficient to bring about the required change. Then she stumbled upon something else that was to take the TAT protocol outside the range of allergy treatment and into a much wider field of application. Tapas was working with a patient who had a sensitivity to salt. During the treatment it turned out that she had been sexually abused as a child. Each time the abuse occurred, it took place in a bar. After the perpetrator had finished he gave the little girl a packet of potato chips. Potato chips or crisps are very salty. When Tapas used her new technique she found not only did the allergy disappear but also the causative trauma of abuse. Now she realised TAT was a very good method for healing traumas and many other things as well. The treatment requires the client to hold the points with both hands in what is called the Tapas pose. The practitioner asks the person to put her mind on the problem and maintain the pose for approximately one minute. This is repeated through seven steps. The technique sounds incredibly easy but the affects are profound. Tapas tells us "thoughts are real, with real energy!" "If these thoughts are suppressed they create negative energy patterns which impact life and health". In Chinese Medicine, the home of acupuncture, energy blocks are the root cause of disease. Think of the strictures as dams in a river. Above the dam lies a large body of water and below a mere trickle or stream. Acupuncture works because you place a tiny electrical charge by way of a metal needle, either below or above the dam and this like an explosive shifts the blockage and allows energy to flow freely, and thus balance is restored! Traumas and negative emotions are a bit like this dam. On one side is you and on the other the negative experience. The result is a block. Thanks to TAT we can free the obstruction by engaging it through the technique. This gives us an opportunity to see over the dam, if you like! The new perspective allows you to view the event in a different light and this will always change it in some way. Holding the TAT pose somehow integrates the discomfort of the past event and brings about peace and harmony. In the Tao this is balance and from a place of balance we have healing and ultimate wellness. This balance is the essence of Behavior Change Therapy.

It is important to grasp that people who are infected by parasites are influenced at more than the physical level. The parasites themselves are attracted to the individual through his/her thought processes. These processes block development on all levels, which means physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Parasites crave what they need and send subliminal messages to the host demanding certain foods be included in the diet. They also communicate feelings to us, which again are to insure their own survival. When they die off they send “death signals” to the body, which feels very depleted and sometimes believes he/she is also dying.
Feelings and emotions such as “I must allow others to take advantage of me” (a passive attitude) and “I will allow people to suck me dry”, are strong magnets to worms, flukes and other parasites. People with parasites usually have weak boundaries and find it difficult to say “no”. In all cases they .have self-esteem issues.
In order to get rid of parasites it often necessary to free ourselves of certain people who drain us. As we accomplish this work, we strengthen sufficiently to dispel many of the internal micro-parasites that plague us.
It’s hard to believe but limiting beliefs create an acid inner environment. Parasites adore an acidic environment. Once we start shedding old and limiting programming we begin to feel hugely better, but more remarkably the Ph begins to rise as we become more alkaline. These pests find alkalinity an unwelcome environment and start to leave of their own accord.
If you notice somebody grinding his teeth (bruxism), you have a clear signal indicating the presence of parasites. This alerts you to the need of a cleanse. Firstly, start with a belief clean up. Health Ambit Consultancy can definitely help you with this and then embark on a physical cleanse. All meat and vegetables have parasites. It is very important everything is washed very thoroughly before cooking . Regardless of what you eat, the more balanced you belief system the fewer “bugs” will be present.
The body needs to be slightly alkaline , sitting in the range of between 7.35 and 7.4 Ph. Once there it will better resist worms, flukes and candida. A herbal clean-out is the best way to go. This should ideally be completed in the spring, between the new moon and the full moon (a two week period). It is in this time that hidden vermin comes out to breed. It is relatively easy to kill adults but the eggs are the problem, so you will have to repeat the process several times before you can be assured of having reached your parasite free-state. Before embarking on the cleanse it is important you seek the guidance and advice of a health-care professional.
To complete the process you will need.
Walnut-wormwood extract. This must not be used by people with diabetes.
Ionized copper. An excellent cleanse that helps rid the body of tapeworms.
Cayenne Pepper.
Oregano Oil ( Take it internally in a gel cap)
Olive leaf extract. This kills yeast/candida, too.
Clove oil/ picture. This kills the eggs.
Thyme. It kills the parasites in drinking water.
Charcoal. Clears giardia and related pests.
Fresh juice: 2 carrots,1 stick of celery. Half beetroot, a clove of garlic and a pinch of ginger. Keeps you alkaline and clean,too.
Good luck and if we can be of any health, do not hesitate in getting in touch. We are here to help.
