Have you ever considered the impact to your physical body from emotional distress or trauma? Due to the way our health care system and culture approaches health care solutions, we tend to isolate different parts of our body in diagnosis and treatment of disease, whether physical or mental. We use surgery and drugs for a vast majority in treatment options, which ultimately doesn’t address the root cause of any physical or mental disorder.
Dr. Karlfeldt, ND, PhD talks with Kate Robinson, CNHT, CCHT about the emotional connection to physical diseases, how to identify them with a series of different non-invasive techniques, and their impact on our physical well-being and overall health.
Dr. Karlfeldt: With me I have Kate Robinson, CNHT, CCHT. She’s a practitioner we have in our office. One technique we use quite a bit is Applied Psycho Neurobiology. What is that?
Kate Robinson, CNHT, CCHT: It’s basically taking a traumatic experience or trauma, muscle-testing to find that trauma, and then unraveling it. There’s many ways of doing that. It’s amazing what those little emotional traumas can do to our bodies, physically.
Dr. K: Because a lot of people may not even recognize that what we are dealing with is trauma. Yes, we may recognize it if there is a big event such as a car accident or loss of a loved one. However, it may be smaller things like first day in school, or something we don’t think of consciously.
KR: Yes, or things that happen in the womb. Or things that happen to our parents or grand parents that we carry. I use muscle-testing to find the problem. First of all, we work backwards. For example, if someone is dealing with thyroid cancer, we can test to see if it’s an emotional issue.
If it tests as emotional, I can go in and do APN on that. The way that looks is muscle-testing a series of different things, and muscle-testing down to the age at which the trauma happened. What was the trauma: was it humiliation, was it not having a voice? A lot of times those are things that go with thyroid. Then I can test to determine when that happen. So, was it theirs, did it happen in their lifetime, or was it something that happened to a parent or grandparent, that they are carrying for their parent or grandparent?
Dr. K: Sometimes, we as children take on the burden of our parents, and we keep carrying their burdens, so to say. And it can carry from generation to generation. And we may not even know what it is.
KR: Yes, and it’s really important. Sometimes we think of that as a good thing, because we think we are helping someone. But actually it’s hindering that person from healing completely. So it’s important for us to heal to release it, but also to allow that parent, or a child or a spouse or someone; whoever they are carrying it for, to heal. It’s like we all have a puzzle, and we all have pieces of that puzzle. If someone is carrying pieces of that puzzle, we’ll never be able to finish it wholly. We need to get those back. As we carry those for people, we need to give those back too, so we can heal completely.
Dr. K: Because we believe it’s a loving thing that we are carrying anger from our mother, for example. Or I’m carrying her burden for a traumatic event. I’m a support system, but like you are saying, that way I’m with-holding a piece that she needs to be able to heal. So the loving thing … I know there’s a technique that you use to be able to give that piece back, so that the mother can heal. And also that relieves your burden.
Dr. K: So you’re not carrying that negative energy. Because there is no way you can resolve somebody else’s energy.
KR: Right, and it makes us sick.
Dr. K: Exactly. So I know you are talking about thyroid cancer, but it can even be just hypo-thyroidism.
KR: Right. Anything. I went to the extreme, but yeah it can be …
Dr. K: So people dealing with weight loss issues, so it could just be something here that’s triggering their thyroid, and they are unable to lose weight.
KR: Exactly. Or lung issues like asthma, holding grief. And gallbladder. Often people get their gallbladders removed and they don’t need to. And holding resentment, possibly.
Dr. K: Exactly so there can be an emotion with each organ. Later on we will be talking about laser energetic detox. APN is something, because we all carry stuff. Have you seen anyone who doesn’t carry trauma?
Dr. K: So we all need to go through and kind of clean different traumas we are dealing with. How does that function on a physiologiacl level? You have the trauma, the thyroid …
KR: Okay Dr. Harmon did a study to examine effects of emotional trauma on the brain. What he saw was that when there was an emotional trauma, it activated part of the brain. And that part of the brain is connected to certain organs.
So if you were enraged, and were very angry about something, that part of the brain that would light up was part of the brain that was connected to the liver. And it would actually constrict blood flow. So it has a very physical reaction.
Dr. K: So you can see that the mind / body component, cannot really be separated. We think of an emotion as something very, just emotional. But it has a really strong physical impact. By doing APN, you are shifting that physical impact that the emotion has.
KR: Yes, and then you can relieve the brain, unravel it, let it go. The body just wants us to recognize it, acknowledge it, and let it go.
Dr. K: Thank you very much!
KR: You’re welcome!
