Hello, everyone. It’s Tuesday, I hope you’re all having a great time. On Mondays, I used to do these podcasts. So now I’d like to share with you why you are about Your Client’s Identity is the Driving Force Behind the Life They’ve Created. And it calls attention back to the foundation when you operate from that point of learned identity, which is the first aspect of the Alkaline Method.
Here’s the thing: as you know, I’ve been a practitioner for over 20 years, working in the physical medicine space as a doctor, a physical therapist, and in the nutritional space as a registered dietician in hospitals, wellness centers, weight loss centers, and all of the above in public health contexts. And I’ve experimented with a variety of modalities, including Functional Yoga Medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine, Pilates and yoga, and everything in between.
How to Heal Yourself and Others
So I used to be known as a “jack of all trades, master of none,” but it was really my desire to improve my health that drove me to seek answers outside of myself. Having said that, I have a background in psychology, nutrition, and physical therapy, as well as functional medicine, yoga, and traditional Chinese medicine. And all of this takes me back to only 25% of the puzzle pieces I needed to put together. Our health-care system, which is failing, is a massive riddle.
What I refer to as the alkaline method allows me to finally put all of the missing jigsaw pieces together in a coherent manner in order to try to make sense of something that is so bizarre. And I can tell you from personal experience that if you look for answers outside of yourself and expect someone else to mend or heal you, you’re doing it incorrectly.
You’ll never be able to recover. That, I promise you, was the core and fundamental flaw in our healthcare system. Isn’t it a band-aid solution? Only from the inside out can healing take place, and far too many of you remain stuck in this taught identity. And you guys keep repeating the same circle of sorrow.
How do I know I’m in the same boat as you? It took me a complete ride. It took me 18 years to finally accept, the fact that it was my false beliefs about myself, my held identity, that had put me in this cycle of misery and sickness for so long.
Become Empowered Healers
And my mission through the work that I do is to encourage these disempowered sick patients to become too empowered, healthy rebels, so that they can reclaim their power from the inside out and take full responsibility for the health they’re generating in their life, knowing that it’s up to them.
It’s up to you to figure out what you’re doing on a daily basis, not realizing that you’re the one who’s contributing to the continuation of your sixth cycle. And if you don’t acknowledge it, you’ll always be looking for something outside of yourself. It’s going to be a long ride for you. And it’s going to be a frustrating and costly road.
So the sooner you know that the power is within you, that the healing powers are within you, and that you recognize the operating system by which you run your life, the better. You don’t even know what the foundation is. It’s almost as if you’re sitting in the chair itself, and the chair is the problem with the entire scene. And you’re not even aware of it since it’s the most obvious thing. It’s the basis upon which you’re supported.
That foundation is completely wrong. I’ve had to do it myself on time. And I learned from thousands of patients that sometimes we have to perform the difficult work of recognizing and becoming aware of what isn’t benefiting us.
It does need us to uproot our roots from where we are now in order to plant the seeds somewhere. So our roots may now have a better base in soil that actually supplies what we need, allowing us to grow all of the wonderful branches, healthy branches, leaves, and flowers that we desire.
Replace the habit with a different one
But as long as you’re stuck in the basic idea and identity that you keep hanging onto and not realizing or noting that it’s the dirt that’s killing your tree’s branches and leaves, you’ll always be sick.
And you’re the one who has chosen to remain in that situation. The reason I named this a transformative self-feeding trip is because we sometimes need to uproot in order to get to a better place. We won’t know unless we see that the very root we’re standing on, or the foundation on which the wood we’re standing, isn’t sound. And we don’t even realize that it sometimes takes all of our efforts to get us into a position that will enhance our health and lives.
I understand. Change is difficult for you, and it comes in many forms. And if what we consider to be our identity isn’t serving us, it’s time for us to take a deeper look and gaze in the mirror after all this time. I realize that unless you have a trusted source who can pierce through whatever it is. That you are hiding because most of us have a lot of repressed emotions and memories. A lot of guilt and shame, fear and anxiety drive us in everything. We do now to the point where it’s become habituation. This means those things we do every day, day in and day out, not even acknowledging them as habits.
It’s the simplest route. It’s the road of least resistance. Because we’re addicted to agony and unnecessary suffering and hardships. And it’s almost as though we’re married to it. That’s all we’ve ever known. To think and uproot and recreate the life we want while eradicating all symptoms appears unimaginable.
Focus on why you want to change
It’s a distinct possibility, but you won’t be able to act on it unless you believe it. As a result, I’d like you to consider your brain as a physiological system. Isn’t your brain physiology? The frontal lobes, temporal lobes, and occipital lobes are all present. You have the reptilian brain, we have the hypothalamus, pituitary, adrenal glands, and everything else that we can think of. We have the ability to touch, palpate, and dissect. Aren’t we able to measure? But, right, our thoughts and feelings give us energy. It causes us to vibrate at a different frequency.
Monroe, Reedy, and channels in our bodies are what traditional Chinese medicine calls them. It’s referred to as wicked channels in your Veda, yoga, culture, belief systems. And medical system. It is energy that enables us to truly function physiologically. Your heart is beating as you sit here and watch or reading this blog.
I’m very sure you’re not asking your heart to beat. As if we’re not telling it what to do of our own volition. It just does what it does because we have electrical impulses that exist in our bodies and travel through our brains, right? And that force flow, if you will, through the vessel, which is our tangible medium, our biological makeup, is correct. This is something that we can quantify in any way, but the ideas and feelings are outside.
It’s something we think is appropriate. Our sentiments are triggered by our thoughts. And feelings are really significant. Shame, worry, guilt, hatred, and fury are all negative emotions that have a detrimental bodily impact, right? And when we think about something over and over, it produces or stimulates feelings, which subsequently have a physiological influence on our bodies.
Illusory truth effect
This loop is perpetuated by the lack of negative ideas and feelings. Our physiology, the way we were created by nature, is in a state of balance and wellbeing. It’s important to remember that the ability to recognize what you’re thinking and feeling is entirely up to you.
It’s what you’ve been taught to do. As a result, as I work with my patients, I’ve discovered that there’s more to why they do what they do, think what they believe, and feel what they feel. And it was all based on delusions; it wasn’t the truth. But it was what they believed at the time.
And those beliefs need to be challenged. Shifted in the direction that you want to create better thoughts and feelings so that you can have a better physiological impact because here’s the thing: your thoughts and feelings trigger or drive, your actions or inactions towards what serves you and actions away from what doesn’t serve you.
Cupcake or green juice. This is something you see all the time. We crave a tub of ice cream when we’re feeling anxious, angry, or depressed. We’d like to order a cupcake. Sugar, something good, a quick fix. Something rapidly pleasant is what we crave when we’re stressed to the max.
But only when we’re in a good mood do we wish to assist others in serving us. But the trouble is that it’s virtually usually those assumptions about yourself that you carry in your core identity and values. That is unfavorable. So many of us suffer from self-loathing, self-disregard, and self-disrespect to the point where we consider everyone else to be more important than ourselves. In fact, no one has ever asked you what you believe since you were a child.
We’ve been brainwashed into believing we know what to do. Even though I am well-educated (I have a doctorate). I was taught how to think and how to act. Complimentary behavior was instilled in me. It’s all about following the rules and regulations in order to act in a certain manner.
It’s a learned behavior. It makes no difference if it is effective. It makes no difference if it is effective. It’s just how things have always been done. And it wasn’t until I started questioning those old. Outdated methods that I was able to come up with a new solution.
To finally bring all the pieces of the puzzle together to make patients whole from a disempowered six-state to an empowered, healthy condition, I created the alkaline technique. Right. And that’s the path we’d like to go. And I know that as a clinician, I won’t be able to achieve that until my patients are on board with whatever I’m doing.
In truth, whatever I believe to be true. My dogmatic approaches to my tactical methods of being or doing what. I do in functional health, yoga, physical medicine, nutrition. And all of the other things I do makeup only 25% of the equation.
So it wasn’t until I was able to take a step back. And really look at the lack of ego or self-importance of what I thought. I knew was a mess that I was able to see it for what it was. I took a step away from it. And I understand the critical relevance of having this human experience. And understanding both the subconscious and conscious mind components of the aspect.
Let go of the all-or-nothing mindset
Then we’ll convert the identity from an undesirable to a desirable condition. And only then will I be able to apply all of my knowledge without resistance. To make everything incredibly simple, and everything will become a collective whole. After that, you progress to the fourth ingredient, which is timeless wisdom.
To summarize, the first of the four aspects of the outline approach. That we use in transitioning from a disempowered six-state to an empowered. A healthy state is to recognize, recognize your subconscious identity. That is the aspect of the alkaline method’s subconscious mind portion. The conscious mind is the second component. The third ingredient is modern medicine, which includes nutrition, physical medicine, functional medicine, holistic medicine. And everything else, before arriving at the fourth element, eternal serenity.
That is the spiritual development and evolution, as well as the yes. This cycle, which repeats itself, needs to be treated holistically, in a way. That makes you complete, which is exactly what you do. This is something you must participate in if you want to feel powerful.
You must transform into the empowered health rebel. That you are and begin to elevate your beans so that you can widen your mind. To the possibilities and be empowered. To live your best life.
Isn’t that the true work? Isn’t that the kind of revolutionary job you’re looking for? It’s not about a new diet. It’s not about taking another vitamin, adapting to gen herbals, taking a holistic approach, or scheduling another acupuncture treatment. Nothing happens unless an internal shift occurs. That’s exactly what I wanted to emphasize. In today’s Blog.
I hope you found this to be very informative and that you recognize it as your own. And actually, the alkaline approach gives you a path to a self-healing journey. Because no matter how much I know. And no matter how knowledgeable I think I am, I can’t treat you until you start your own personal trip. And that transformation can only occur from the inside out. I can only point you in the proper direction; the rest is up to you. And it’s at this point that I really want you to join the movement.
