Removing Interference By Using Different Modes of Healing to Restore Wellness

How can “removing interferences” aid our health? Dr. Michael Karlfeldt, ND, PhD explains how to remove interferences that may be hindering our health and well-being in different organ systems. We’ll discover how the body can be affected by toxins or chemicals, pathogens, food or food products, mold or dust, or other substances in our environment. 

From my point of view, whenever you are dealing with healing, you always want to look at what I call removing interferences. This can be accomplished by chiropractic, where you have the nerve flow that supports all the tissue, and makes sure that nutrients and energy, electricity, nerve conduction, and neurotransmitters reach their targets. In this spine there are different vertebrae that if they are mis-aligned and put pressure on specific nerves, that reduces the energy flow to specific target areas. 

Symptoms that you can feel could include pain, which is a common reason to go see a chiropractor. However, it can also be any kind of dysfunction of an organ. If you are dealing with ulcerative colitis, and that nerve flow doesn’t support the intestines properly, you want to make certain to correct this issue and remove the interference that stops the transport of nutrients into the intestinal area.

You can do the same way in Naturopathy. When a patient comes in with health issues, I ask what is the main cause, I’m not interested in masking the symptoms. I want to understand what interference is present that can cause things to go wrong.

The cause can be almost anything: a pathogen, such as a fungus, virus, bacteria, parasites. I will ask: what impact does that pathogen have? Or, it could be some chemical creating an inflammatory response, interfering with kidneys, liver or other organ, making it harder for that organ to function the way it should. Maybe it’s something that’s causing an inflammatory response such as a food or something you are allergic to such as dust or mold, or something of that nature.

As a Naturopathic doctor I want to ensure the use of natural agents to support the body to move chemicals, or heavy metals out, or ask the patient to stop eating a food they are sensitive to, so you can remove the interference pattern. Once you have done that you want to supply nutrition to that area.

Let’s say the kidneys are the target area affected, joints are aching, you are swelling, and the body is unable to move toxins out of the body enough you have fluid retention. And we learn that the organ is having a challenge because of the presence of a certain chemical.

So we want to support removal of that chemical from the kidney so it can function properly. By filtering the blood properly, the kidney can remove toxins that accumulate in the joints that are causing sore joint, or swelling in the feet, or other problem.

Then nutrition must be supplied to the kidney because after interference is removed, you will want to feed the organ with proper nutrition. Foods such as parsley, celery, nettle, corn silk or horsetail are examples of herbs and foods capable of restoring kidney function that contain important vitamins and minerals that are beneficial.

Demonstration of Herbal Remedies: Direct Resonance Testing

Vibrational medicine is a powerful, new frontier to assist healing in the body. We can use sound and light, and also herbal medicine. All of these contain a certain vibration that is specific to that substance. When you ingest that herb – milk thistle as one example – adds those nutrients or vibrations, to correct imbalances that create illness in the body.

Milk thistle is a beneficial herb for liver disorders. By using muscle testing or applied kinesiology to test this herb against the liver, we can use it with something known as direct resonance – a technique that uses two similar vibrations that come close to each other to create a relaxation response in the body. When a substance corresponds to a specific organ or body region, the muscle being tested will yield to the pressure exerted against it.

Milk thistle can prompt the liver to go into relaxation because the vibrations of these two substances are similar. Milk thistle correlates with with the liver, and can allow relaxation to support optimal liver function.

Ashwagandha is another herb we can experiment with to determine what organ most closely corresponds. This herb resonates with the thyroid, and is well-known to support function of this significant hormone organ. If we test some other areas, such as the adrenal glands, this herb doesn’t seem to resonate with Ashwagandha. However, we have learned that the thyroid is very responsive to it.

Using licorice, we can do a scan over the body, and find that moving this herb over the adrenal glands demonstrates this substance as effective for rebuilding these sensitive organs. The vibrations, then, of the adrenals are congruent with this herb.

Gotu kola is a herb used to boost brain function. Elephants are known to eat the leaves of this herb in their natural diet, and this is one reason why their memory is believed to be so strong. So when we test Gotu kola over the brain area while pressing on the arm of the client, the muscle testing response is stronger (the client’s arm will yield to exerted pressure).

This is one of a variety of useful, natural methods for determining effectiveness of herbs that correspond to various body regions for healing.

Using Muscle Testing to Determine Heart Health

In this episode of the Dr. Michael show, Dr. Karlfeldt, ND, PhD performs testing on John Cavanaugh who has volunteered to show how to muscle-test the heart. Muscle-testing is a way to put stress on the nervous system and get response from the body to see what is going on.

With his arm outstretched. Dr. Karlfeldt puts pressure over the heart in different places. The first couple of places feel strong as he exerts pressure against John’s arm, but one place goes weak. One part of the heart needs extra support. There can be certain things that create inflammation within the cardiovascular system.

He uses different vials containing different “bugs” and some with different foods, different metals and different chemicals. He tests to determine which ones change the response. In the region where he felt weakness, Dr. Karlfeldt will determine whether there is some type of food that creates weakness. And one of the vials with a certain type of food John is consuming that is creating inflammation in his cardiovascular system.

The same test can be performed with vials containing a certain “bug” such as a parasite, fungus, bacteria, virus, etc. And there appears to be an immune challenge as well.

Dr. Karlfeldt will also check to determine if there is a metal, which seems to be okay. And then determine any chemical weakness as well. This can be done to determine what is the cause of inflammation. It is inflammation that is causing the cholesterol myth we have been taught by conventional health.

Major Autohemotherapy (MAH)

Major Autohemotherapy is performed by removing some of your blood, infusing it with medical grade ozone, and then putting it back into your body by IV. It appears that when ozone is injected into the treated sample of blood it destroys any pathogens and when it is injected back into the person it has the effect of an autogenous (self-generated) vaccine.

Autohemotherapy has a cumulative effect so that each treatment builds on and enhances the effects of previous treatments. For acute infections, frequent treatment may be necessary initially.

Major Autohemotherapy is often combined with Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) which synergistically amplifies the effectiveness of both therapies, boosting the immune system, cleansing the blood, and improving oxygen delivery to tissue.

Major Autohemotherapy is a powerful procedure that helps the body activate its own immune system and has been safely used for decades throughout the entire world.

Because Major Autohemotherapy boosts the immune system and supports detoxification anyone can benefit. However, here are some specific conditions it has been used for:

  • Cancers
  • Lyme Disease
  • Chemical Sensitivities
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Autoimmune Disease
  • Candidiasis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Colds and Flu
  • Hepatitis B and C
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • Herpes Simplex and Zoster Viruses
  • Streptococcal Infections
  • Staphylococcal Infections
  • Dementia and Cerebral Vascular Disease
  • Post Stroke
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Circulatory Problems
  • Heart and Vascular disease
  • Sores and Sounds

Nutritional Microscopy

Your blood can also tell us a lot about your digestion, kidney and liver function, activity of the immune system, level of inflammation, nutritional deficiencies, heavy metal and chemical toxicity, circulation and oxygenation issues and much more.

Nutritional microscopy, or live blood analysis looks at what is in your blood and how it behaves to you a great deal of understanding of some of the underlying factors that may be contributing to your health condition. Nutritional microscopy is a test that anyone who wants a deeper understanding about their health would benefit from.

It’s actually quite interesting to watch your blood live on the big screen and learn about your health as you see the condition of your red and white blood cells and the amount of pathogens (fungus, parasites, bacteria, virus, spirochetes) floating around. Nutritional microscopy can provide additional non-invasive methods visibility into your health and nutritional status. 

Laser Energetic Detoxification

Laser Energetic Detoxification (LED) is a gentle, rapid, and non-invasive method for addressing chemical toxicities and more.

Laser Energetic Detoxification (LED) is a gentle, rapid, and non-invasive method of addressing chemical toxicities, heavy metal burdens, sulfur intolerances, nutritional deficiencies, chemical and hormonal imbalances, genetic dysfunctions, chronic infections and much more. In conventional homeopathy, remedies are taken as pellets or liquid drops under the tongue. In Laser Energetic Detox, a clear glass treatment vial of water and alcohol is imprinted with homeopathic-like frequencies, then a low-powered laser light is shone through that treatment vial onto the client’s body with a sweeping motion, creating a physiological impact.

Effects include the release of toxins, activation of the immune system, or the balancing of a certain hormone. As the laser shines through the homeopathic vial, the information in the vial piggy back on the light beam into the body. If it is a homeopathic mercury vial, the body will immediately start releasing mercury; if the vial is imprinted with the spirochete borrelia, the immune system will gain the information needed about this infectious agent to more effectively fight it off. Laser Energetic Detoxification is an extremely powerful healing technique and is highly underutilized.

In addition to detoxification it is also used to balance hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters and much more. Learn More about Restoring Health using Laser Energetic Detox in this Interview with Dr. Douglas Phillips

Here is an example of Laser Energy Detox from an episode of the Dr. Michael Show:

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Most illnesses and injuries occur, and often linger, at the cellular or tissue level. In many cases, such as circulatory problems, non-healing wounds, and strokes, adequate oxygen cannot reach the damaged area and the body’s natural healing ability is unable to function properly. The delivery of 100% oxygen under pressure during hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides up to 20 times normal oxygen to all tissues within the body and increases stem cell circulation by 8 times creating an environment where tissue regeneration is greatly increased.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Benefits

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy stimulates the growth of new capillaries (angiogenesis), essentially building a new collateral circulatory system to serve injured and healthy tissues alike. 

Faster regeneration of bone is derived by hyperbaric oxygen’s ability to stimulate and increase production of specialized cells (osteoblasts and osteoclasts) responsible for bone repair and formation. These essential building blocks of connective tissue, tendon, and skin matrix (fibroblasts and collagen) provide the structural framework throughout the body and play a critical role in tissue healing. 

Fibroblast and collagen reproduction and growth are aided by the added availability of increased oxygen provided during hyperbaric conditions. 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy markedly decreases inflammation by stimulating the body’s own anti-inflammatory defenses. 

Conditions That Hyperbaric Oxygen Can Improve

Some conditions that can be helped by hyperbaric oxygen therapy include Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Lyme Disease, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, Recovery from Surgery, Sports Injuries, Stroke, and Traumatic Brain Injury.

This interview Dr. Michael Karlfeldt explains how it can improve the effectiveness of cancer treatments.

Auriculotherapy: the ultimate for pain management and much more

Auriculotherapy is needle-less stimulation of the external ear for alleviating pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Auriculotherapy uses electricity to diagnose and treat auricular acupoints (acupuncture points on the ear).

How Auriculotherapy Works

Auriculotherapy works by stimulating the central nervous system through the cranial nerves and spinal nerves on the auricle (external ear). This stimulation results in neurotransmitters being stimulated within the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. This stimulation of neurotransmitters modulates the pain and nerve function correcting dysfunctional signals sent to the affected organ or body part.

Since we are changing brain patterns, it is important to keep reinforcing the new pattern until it is the primary one and the old pattern is neutralized. Because of this, it is beneficial to have a treatment 2-3 times per week for a few weeks to maximize the treatment response.

Auriculotherapy Benefits

Auriculotherapy can be effective for many conditions. Some of these include: Back Pain, Headaches, Bursitis, Shoulder Pain, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tennis Elbow, TMJ, Dizziness, Hypertension, Asthma, Insomnia, ADD/ ADHD, Shingles, Macular Degeneration, Burns, Psoriasis, Addictions for Nicotine, Drugs and Appetite Control, Weight Loss, Detoxification, Hormonal Support, Adrenal Fatigue, Thyroid Issues, Blood Sugar Support, Depression, Anxiety and more.

Hair Mineral Analysis

Hair mineral analysis is an inexpensive and noninvasive way of measuring mineral and heavy metal levels, often revealing abnormalities and dysfunctions not detected through other routine tests.

Minerals are the spark plugs of the body needed for millions of enzymes as cofactors, facilitators, inhibitors and as part of the enzymes themselves. Hair mineral analysis is a tissue biopsy where we gain information about activity within the end station of all nutrients, the cell, not just what is floating around in the blood. The site of metabolism is the cells. Blood is excellent for many tests, but does not measure activity directly at the cellular level.

The final destination for all vitamins, minerals, sugars, fats and hormones is the cells, not the blood. It makes sense to measure the cells directly to determine whether these substances are actually reaching their final destination. By interpreting the levels and ratios of the different minerals and observing the levels of heavy metals in the hair you can find out about your thyroid, adrenal, kidney, blood sugar, digestive, autonomic nervous system, male and female hormonal function on a cellular level, which is quite different from just measuring what levels of hormones that are floating around in the blood. You can also learn about your emotional levels, oxidation rate, metabolic type, dietary concerns, carbohydrate tolerance, stress patterns, and energy and vitality levels.
