A new book entitled “Scared Sick: The Role of Childhood Trauma in Adult Disease,” uses the latest cutting-edge research and case studies to reveal a very serious and major public health crisis. The Authors, Robin Karr-Morse, a family therapist and former Director of Parents Training for the Oregon Child Welfare System, and Meredith S. Wiley, the State Director of Fight Crime: Invest in Kids New York, demonstrate in this book how important the first years of life are. Connecting psychology, neurobiology, endocrinology, immunology, and genetics, Karr-Morse examines how chronic fear or stress in the early years can create common diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, depression, and addiction in adulthood.
Many people have found Infratonic Therapy to be a wonderful tool for treatment of anxiety. Infratonic Therapy is a harmless, non-invasive, non-addictive, very soothing method for calming nerves. The device can be placed directly on a person, or even placed nearby for treatment. This could be especially effective in helping to calm children, but can also be used in adults in treating buried fears or healing from childhood trauma and abuse.
The Fear Protocol: Because applying the Infratonic to the sacrum frequently evokes old emotions of fear, it is best to alternate treatment of sacrum with treatment of heart. Sacrum will bring up our old buried fears (as they are stored cellularly). We will probably not experience those childhood experiences which created the fears, just the emotional discomfort that was recorded in the cells. We may experience an increase in anxiety as this stuff comes up and forward to the area of the heart. When we do, it is time to move the transducer to the Heart Center to process this fear material, and integrate it into our entire body consciousness. Then we will experience relaxation again. This process of evoking stored experiential material is effective, whether as a shock induced by physical injury, emotional trauma, or mental overload.
Fears are so dominant in our lives, and so closely integrated with chronic illness, premature aging, and impeded healing that the fear protocol is extremely powerful in enhancing all aspects of our lives. Apply the Infratonic for 10 minutes on sacrum (or until you start to feel anxiety) then for 20 minutes on Heart. Repeat this protocol daily for two weeks, and see if your life doesn’t change. Similarly, where the anxiety you feel in your chest does not have any conscious content, apply the Infratonic to the Heart Center.
While we are frequently quite aware of anxiety, sometimes chronic fear causes tension in parts of our bodies which we are not even aware of.
The Anger/Grief Protocol: There are several variations which can be made on the Fear Protocol which will accelerate release of old stored emotions. Fear often causes us to repress our grief, and grief often causes us to repress our anger.
A principal location where deeply stored grief and rage can be accessed is the lower abdomen to the left and right of the pelvic bone. If you push there and find tightness and discomfort, you have issues to work on. Grief is more often stored on the left side and anger on the right. This may be related to the fact that spleen and pancreas, organs of assimilation are located on the left side, and the liver and gall bladder, organs which break down foreign substances like animal food products, are located on the right. (Left side (sympathy) creates relationships and right side (anger) destroys them. You can apply the Infratonic wherever in the abdomen you find tightness or discomfort. After ten minutes on the abdomen point it is most effective to apply to the Sacrum for 10 minutes, then the Heart Center for 10 minutes.
Cognitive processes stored in the pelvic floor are generally issues of survival, tribal issues, and inherited fears, which can contribute to a host of ailments like chronic low back pain and degeneration in the L4-L5 area.
