Recovery Program

This particular program is offered to people recovering from serious illness (cancer, heart surgery, stroke, etc.)

The focus of the treatment here is to detoxify the body, build up the immune system, restore regular organ function, proper elimination and absorption of nutrients, sleep cycles, hormonal balance, mental and emotional stability.

In essence, this approach has the components used for Prevention and Treatment: analysis of the case, assessment of the needs and creating a strategy for faster success. Dynamic remedies and biofeedback therapy are our main tools. Sequential Therapy is applied to eradicate remaining damage from past medical interventions and other trauma.

Detoxification

A major component to all recovery processes is to help the body eliminate toxins, dead cells and other matter that is best out than in the body. There are many ways to do that with diet, supplements, drinking more water and also using herbs to stimulate organ cleansing.

The special addition to all regular detox methods is the use of specific dynamic remedies to enhance the results. With those remedies, the organs are supported and stimulated to work better, helping the action of any herbs or other supplements used to cleanse the system. The detox remedies also stabilize your system so that you do not get stressed unnecessarily as the toxins are expelled.

Partial detoxification is a situation where the person has to take medication and the medical drugs cause toxicity. For example, antibiotics causing candida or anti-depressants causing vitamin deficinecies. In that case, we can use remedies to reduce the side effects while you are on medication. As a result, there is less toxic build-up in the body.

Inner toxicity or endotoxicity is the result of organ malfunctioning, dead cells in the body or toxins produced by the body itself as it deals with infection and destruction of bacteria, for example. All recovery processes from surgeries or other major disease that caused organ damage, tends to have that problem once healing begins. There are specific remedies that are used to manage inflammation, prevent infection, and help the body deal with the inner toxicity typical of all recovery processes.

Organ and tissue restoration

Your body will always try to restore itself to perfect balance. We help that with remedies and other therapies. Nature is wise and capable, but in our day and age, to leave it all to nature alone may not be the best idea. So we help organize the healing process by providing the body with much needed direction and stimulation as it goes about its business.

Liver, kidneys, colon, lungs… many organs will have to work overtime to restore themselves after surgery or long illness. Meanwhile, production of hormones can be impaired leading to discomfort and secondary problems. Or the lymphatic system can suffer from overload and lymph nodes may swell and hurt. All this can be avoided or healed with dynamic remedies, herbs, massage and other treatment.

Dynamic remedies are known to heal bone fractures and restore tissue damage twice as fast as any other healing therapy. Cells need to grow, blood to be replenished, hormones replaced while the body is still struggling.

Instead of using toxic medication or hormone replacement treatments, a dynamic remedy can provide the support needed until your body is whole again. There are many situations where there are no known treatments for recovery, lets say from a stroke. Dynamic remedies offer us hundreds of solutions to these “incurable” states, including nerve and brain regeneration.

The Biggest Advantage

The biggest advantage to the Recovery Program is the possibility to undo the damage from already done interventions (like radiation, chemo, surgery, etc.).

Sequential Therapy has given us the structure for that. Dynamic remedies and biofeedback are versatile tools that can be used to address all types of invasive procedures, physical injuries and mental trauma that are usually part of a disease process.

Here are some examples of significant impacts that are best removed from your body memory, so that it can apply all its energy into complete healing:

- Diagnosis shock. This saps so much of our life force that for a long time after we may live in distress. It can also cause organ impairment by overstimulating the adrenals and thyroid for too long a time (while you are in fight-flight mode).

- CT scans, x-rays, MRI, nuclear scans - and all forms of radiation, done repeatedly to the body, takes a long time to detoxify and clear from the system. I can speed up that process and make sure no traces are left of radioactivity. Plus, some of these treatments are carcinogenic and if not cleared from the system, can eventually cause more problems.

- Surgery, biopsies, dental work, stitches, cuts and probes into the body. The body does not like to be breached like that. In fact, it fights hard to prevent anything getting in that has no place there. So cutting and probing and removing tissues is extremely traumatic to your system.It will put in place defenses that can cause repetitive problems in the future unless these impacts are de-activated and removed from the body memory. In addition to that, many times healing from these interventions cannot complete due to the weakened state of the body at the time they were performed. So your system keeps struggling with after effects, sometimes for years. It is a relief to finally resolve this with just a few well chosen remedies!

- Medical drugs, chemo, opiates, antibiotics. Contemporary medicine relies heavily on drugs. So patients are given many drugs for many things. Our body has a problem with that. It is OK to take medication once in a while, but when pushed too far, the body will react violently in its attempt to counter their effects. This is called “side effects”. One of the worst side effects is cancer or death, from chemotherapy. Some of these drug effects are so deep and devastating that it can take years to get relief from them. Some can impair the body permanently. With dynamic remedies and biofeedback treatment, these effects can be reversed so that the body can fully detoxify and restore proper functions.

- Mental and emotional stress. From the initial diagnosis of a frightening disease, through the pain and anxiety of multiple interventions, to the insecurity about the ability to get better, dealign with family, work and friends, the stress of making decisions – all of these feelings cause us tension and debilitate us. Once it is all over and recovery begins, it is a good time to address the mental stress that you just went through, and make sure that no permanent issues remain with your self-esteem, confidence or fear of disease. For life to go back to normal and a person to feel completely restored, emotional balance has to also be restored. In fact, this is the most important requirement for full recovery. And the most neglected one in our modern medical system.

Other therapies

In addition to the Recovery Program, you will receive advice of which other therapies will be useful to you, depending on your needs. The timing of their application is also important and you will receive advice on that as well. Sometimes the reason why a good therapy did not work is because it was done at the wrong time!

Here are some useful additional therapies. They all work well with this approach. The Recovery Program offers solutions also to people who are already doing a different form of treatment, but want to speed up and enhance the results. All of the listed therapies can be useful in your healing process AND can also be enhanced with my approach:

- Craniosacral therapy
- Massage
- Osteopathy
- Energy work (Reiki, Yuen, EFT, etc.)
- Diet and nutrition programs, supplements
- Aromatherapy and flower essences

The list is long and options are discussed in the context of each person’s needs.

When Healing is Slow

There are several reasons why healing may be slower than desired. Although the possibility for miracles and quick recovery are always there, sometimes what is possible cannot happen in all cases. Here are some common reasons why we don’t heal fast enough or completely:

1. Too much damage was done. Sometimes a serious illness can take too much of a toll and the body cannot deal with all the damage all at once. Examples of this are: chemotherapy, serious bodily injuries, extensive surgery, etc. In some cases, several bodily systems are affected simultaneously, so they cannot function as is needed by the recovery process – and in that case, recovery is slow.

2. Too weak a body. For healing to happen, our body has to have the resources to produce new cells, to deal with toxins, to work at full speed. When a person is debilitated from serious or long-term illness, the body has to fist be strengthened so that it can perform all actions needed for full restoration.

3. Incessant interventions. One of the most frustrating situations is when a person has to undergo constant invasive medical tests and interventions. Usually cancer survivors have that problem – the push to take chemo drugs even after cancer was cleared, the many tests to check “how things are” , all that continuously keeps the body reeling and unable to get on with the recovery process. When such tests and interventions are done too frequently, your body does not have the time it needs to recover from one, before another is done. For healing to happen faster, you have to allow your body the time and rest it needs to focus on healing. Constant prodding and chemicals impede healing and keep your system in survival mode beyond what is advisable.

4. Lack of trust or faith. This is one of the biggest obstacles to recovery. Fear of the disease coming back or feelings of being weak and useless, lack of faith in the possibility of full recovery – all of these feelings and other similar ones, cause a person to not really participate full heartedly in their own healing process. You need to trust your body, nature and your therapist. If you give up, your body will also eventually slow down its work and get stuck. So much of our healing is activated by our mood! Upbeat thoughts and feelings stimulate extra healing in the body and speed up recovery. Depression, anger and fear, cause the body to flip back into survival mode – and in that situation it is not interested in recovery, but is watching for the danger and gearing up for a fight – using up much needed resources and energy.

5- Too much focus on symptoms. Another common impediment to quick healing is when the symptoms produced by the restoration process bother us and keep us constantly vigilant. Most often it is pain and inflammation that causes us to zone into an organ or body part and obsess about it. This negative focus cause your body to react and redouble activity related to that same body part. So if you feel pain and focus too much on it, with feelings of fear, despair or annoyance, your body gets the signal that there is something dangerous happening there and doubles its efforts to remove it – often this happens with a worsening of the symptoms that bothered you in the first place! With remedies and understanding you can overcome this common block to cure and avoid getting stuck in the middle of healing.

Full Recovery

How do you know you are well again? When the symptoms are gone. When your mood is improved and you sleep well again. When you feel strong and are able to make plans without factoring in your healing process anymore. In other words, when life is back to what is normal to you.

Persisting symptoms. One can be healthy and still have symptoms. Sometimes symptoms persist. There are occasions when you may have to live with symptoms from here on. Life is not perfect. Still, there is a way to live a full and healthy life even when some impairment or symptoms remain. To equate symptoms to disease and to allow that to form our identity, would be a mistake. So do not allow this to rob you of the opportunity to live life to the fullest.

Fear of disease. A central part of recovery is to eliminate the fear of getting ill again. Do not let a bad experience cause a permanent fear of illness. Life can present us with challenges at any time – this is what real life is like. A healthy person meets the challenges with courage, looks for solutions and moves on. There is a whole philosophy of looking at disease and challenges in life as an opportunity to grow stronger and discover more about yourself and about life. Fear of disease can ultimately grow to a point where it becomes debilitating and creates disease.

Quality of life. Sometimes circumstances are such that full recovery is not possible. Either because the person is too weak to spring back to health, or because there is not enough time for healing to complete, or even because the dedication and understanding of the person is limited and they do not have the possibility to apply the extent of therapeutic work it will take for full recovery (for example, months of rehabilitation, changes in diet, relocation, lengthy restoration therapies or counseling, etc.). This program can offer long-term simple support to improve quality of life and stimulate healing behind the scenes even in these cases. After all, even when cure is not possible, every little improvement in quality of life can be a major contribution. This part is especially important for seriously handicapped people or the elderly.
