For health, for
change, for life
So what's stopping you? Often we feel that despite
our best efforts and intentions we are somehow subconsciously sabotaging
ourselves, preventing ourselves from achieving what we would like from
our health or even from our life. For some of us we know the path
we need to take, we just can't take it. For others the path itself
is obscured. We are often told to "just get over it" or "let it go
and move on". Easier said than done and sometimes even
thinking differently or positively is not enough. The solution is
not just at the conscious level although that's certainly half the story
- awareness and understanding do make a big difference. The other
half of the story and perhaps the most significant part is what lies
beneath - the subconscious. This is where changes begin, action
happens and the solutions are implemented. This is also what stops
us. Nothing to do with will power, intention or commitment which
all happen in the conscious mind. Although we can cognitively
influence the subconscious, it is far more efficient and effective to
communicate with the subconscious directly. Get the solution
happening at a deeper level and as effective as this is, it's still not
the start of the story. Every story needs a beginning and yours
starts at the heart, living life from this point onwards is joyful and
the closer we get to it the healthier and happier we will be. At
Easternview Resolve Clinic we offer the opportunity to clear away those
limitations that are preventing you from living the life you want and
having the health you want. Make an
appointment today and experience the possibilities for yourself.
Symptoms vs. Solutions
"Healing is a matter of time, but it is also sometimes a matter of opportunity." -Hippocrates
natural health practitioners talk about getting to the "cause" of
symptoms so how are we any different? First let's look at what
symptoms are. They are the expression of a problem, the messenger
saying something is wrong. Treating symptoms is important in terms
of managing them so they don't adversely affect our lives but removing
or managing symptoms doesn't always solve the problem. The body
will find another way to get the message out although we often don't
connect different symptoms to an expression of the same problem.
So what does it mean to get behind the symptoms to the cause? For
many practitioners it means applying a technique to the symptom to
provide often temporary relief. Some claim to look behind the
symptom(s) often looking for a biochemical, nutritional or energy
"cause". At Easternview we ask why - and keep asking why - until
we find out what set that particular symptom pattern up in the first
place and what triggers are maintaining it. Once this is resolved
the body doesn't need to compensate for the problem by producing
It is also a layered approach. Often we are spending so much
energy managing the symptoms that we don't have enough to get to the
bottom line and resolve the cause. Although this does
occasionally happen, for most of us a session will be making some space
in the mind to work on the problem and move it towards resolution.
It's a bit like a filing system with current files spread out across a
desk waiting to be filed into archive - a place where we don't need to
think about them any more or spend any energy on them. If there is
space to work, there is space to resolve. The more open files on
the desk the more energy we spend managing them while we try to work out
where or how to put them away. It is when we are unable to file them
away that we encounter problems. So what stops us?
When we experience trauma, shock or anything
unexpected in our lives we try to make sense of it, that is we try
to understand what it means to us and weave that experience and
understanding into the fabric of our lives. Like an
autobiography, we are "writing" our story all the time, from
the moment we were conceived until the day we die. It's when
we can't understand, we don't know what it means to us that problems
arise. Add some time to the mix and more unresolved
experiences and things become more problematic as we have less and
less energy to sort it out. This can be compounded if we start
to worry that this experience might happen again and we drop into a
sustained fight and flight response.
Flight and Fight
Flight and fight is a primal reflex designed to help us survive.
It is a physiological response that the brain uses in times of
trauma and stress and is absolutely essential to our survival.
We usually drop out of this response once the threat is resolved.
However it is in times when we are unable to resolve the threat that
we remain in a sustained flight and fight response which results in
often significant health issues. Today's "threats" are far
different from that of our ancestors. Instead of tigers or
marauders, we have difficult sustained situations such as issues at
work, relationship problems, unresolved childhood trauma, and many
more. By resolving these issues we shift from merely survival
to really living.
A new approach
By targeting the unresolved stuff we are able to directly
influence the subconscious to "see" the solution. While
symptoms are important, to a Resolve Practitioner they are the
signposts that point the way to where the problem is coming from as
well as what the mind needs to resolve it and move on.
Tapping into the significant advances in recent years in relation
to trauma and unresolved experience and the psychological impacts of
these allows us to apply the latest knowledge to our approach.
Neuroplasticity extends these resources and with understanding and
awareness comes the complete package.
Constant and ongoing research and development into this exciting
new natural therapy means that we aren't standing still - every new
year brings new information that we can incorporate into what we do
making it constantly evolving and offering better and better
solutions each time.
