Breast Milk, Epigenetics, Quantum Physics, Matrix Energetics and ideas about Nature and Natural Laws

August 8, 2010

www.missionhillspt.com

Ralph Havens

Studying the scientific literature over the years, specifically the health, nutrition, and medical studies one thing becomes clear.  We really don’t know what is going on or why it’s going on.  Some examples come from the world of genetics and epigenetics.  Years ago after the discovery of the DNA helix and genes, scientists proclaimed that DNA was in charge of what our bodies and lives looked like.  The covering of protein around the DNA helix was discarded and thought to have no function!  Now with epigenetics, scientists have found that the protein sleeve plays a huge role in how DNA expresses itself and the lowly cell membrane is actually more important in how DNA expresses itself than the DNA itself.  This field epigenetics is opening our eyes to the potential of how we perceive and interact with our environment and the power we have to control our lives and health through our perceptions and our environment.

Recently in the New York Times I came across a great article of a discovery about Breast Milk and another example of how scientists thought something in nature had no use or value and how now we see it has a huge value.  I printed two paragraphs from the article below:

Breast Milk Sugars Give Infants a Protective Coat  from The New York Times Sunday

By NICHOLAS WADE

Published: August 2, 2010

The complex sugars (in Breast Milk)  were long thought to have no biological significance, even though they constitute up to 21 percent of milk. Besides promoting growth of the bifido strain, they also serve as decoys for noxious bacteria that might attack the infant’s intestines. The sugars are very similar to those found on the surface of human cells, and are constructed in the breast by the same enzymes. Many toxic bacteria and viruses bind to human cells by docking with the surface sugars. But they will bind to the complex sugars in milk instead. “We think mothers have evolved to let this stuff flush through the infant,” Dr. Mills said.

Later in the article:

The proteins in (breast) milk also have special roles. One, called Alpha-lactalbumin, can attack tumor cells and those infected by viruses by restoring their lost ability to commit cell suicide. The protein, which accumulates when an infant is weaned, is also the signal for the breast to remodel itself back to normal state.

Such findings have made the three researchers keenly aware that every component of milk probably has a special role. “It’s all there for a purpose, though we’re still figuring out what that purpose is,” Dr. Mills said. “So for God’s sake, please breast-feed.”

Here’s the link to the story:

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/03/science/03milk.html?src=me&ref=general

My take on this:

Now When I read that a scientist finds “no value” to something found in nature, I see that this scientist is not reading his or her own scientific history.  As scientists and health care practitioner,s we need to be keenly aware that we really don’t know why something is there or  what are all the uses for something.  We need to treat our clients with awe and respect for what their bodies are doing and the innate wisdom of the body and of nature.

This is a reason after studying Physical Therapy and Integrative Manual Therapy, and many other methods for 25 years, I am now using Matrix Energetics as a way to interact with the world, and my clients. With Matrix Energetics we drop into the space of the heart, which quantum physics may have information about and describe as the space called Dark Matter and Dark Energy ( meaning invisible or unseen).   Physicist David Bohm, PhD and others state that in once cubic centimeter of this Dark Matter there is more energy than in the entire Known Universe!

So by having respect for Nature and knowing that we really may not have access to much real knowledge and we may not really know the big picture, I can drop into the space between the spaces; the space between thoughts, the still point and access this Dark Matter, this infinite power and let go of a need to know.  Then by placing intent and letting go, I can see how nature would shift a pattern or a condition for my client.  I can observe with awe and respect Nature and the Universe shift the outcome and the reality for my client.  I can observe the miracle!

I feel this consciousness technology, Matrix Energetics, is the way we can all start to access a deeper knowing and not depend on scientists especially when they tell us that something in nature is not useful or has not purpose.  And instead of using drugs that we see on T.V. that claim to offer help for a condition but then list a laundry list of side effects.  When I see drug ads on T.V. in becomes clear to me that these people making the drugs, promoting them, and using them have no idea what they are doing or what impact they are having.  Nature may have a better idea how to help in these cases. Matrix Energetics can help by accessing the power of the universe, the dark matter, and help bring the power and miracle of nature into the equation.

If you would like to experience or read more about Matrix Energetics or Quantum physics I’ve included some references below.  Please feel free to email me or call us and we can help you get more information.

Fibromyalgia Causes and Treatments – Integrative Medicine, Complimentary Alternative Medicine, Matrix Energetics Perspectives

July 20, 2010

Fibromyalgia

by Ralph Havens, PT, OCS, IMTC

certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner

www.missionhillspt.com

What is it?  What are the causes of it?  Has anyone ever fixed it up?  Does any one that ever had a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia have a true success story?   Has anyone been cured from Fibromyalgia?

What does Fibromyalgia mean?  Well if you break it down it is “Fibro” which means connective tissue and “my” which means muscle and “algia” which means pain.  So a big medical sounding word but all it really means is connective tissue and muscle pain.  So that doesn’t really say what it is but merely says what the symptoms are.

so what are the symptoms:

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on a person’s  body where slight pressure causes pain.

Fibromyalgia occurs in about 2 percent of the population in the United States. Women are much more likely to develop the disorder than are men, and the risk of fibromyalgia increases with age. Fibromyalgia symptoms often begin after a physical or emotional trauma, but in many cases there appears to be no triggering event.

The pain associated with fibromyalgia is commonly described as constant, dull, and  aching.  It typically arising from muscles.  The pain occurs on both sides of a person’s body both above and below the waist.

Fibromyalgia is characterized by tender points. Tender point locations include:

  • Back of the head
  • Between shoulder blades
  • Top of shoulders
  • Front sides of neck
  • Upper chest
  • Outer elbows
  • Upper hips
  • Sides of hips
  • Inner knees

Fatigue and sleep disturbances
People with fibromyalgia often awaken tired, even though they seem to get plenty of sleep. Experts believe that these people rarely reach the deep restorative stage of sleep. Sleep disorders that have been linked to fibromyalgia include restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea.

Other conditions which seem to go with Fibromyalgia:

_________________________________

Ok so does that sound like the medical profession knows what it is and what causes it?  Not really.  Basically all western medicine has to offer is to list the symptoms and lump them together and call it a syndrome.  Not much help there.

With Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT), we have found some signs in the body that are found when someone presents with this syndrome.  They are as follows:

1.  toxicity – with IMT we can do an assessment called Myofascial Mapping to determine areas of dysfunction.  With this Mapping assessment what we have found is pathology in areas indicating Toxicity;  This includes motilities and rhythms in the body associated with infection and inflammation.

2. Lymph system problems.  We find decreased lymph flow.  Basically the toxicity is backing up and the lymph system is having a hard time cleaning it.

3.  Decreased elimination systems.  We find problems in the Liver, hepatic and portal veins, sigmoid colon, spleen and kidneys/ureters.  Basically the routes of elimination are having a hard time dumping the toxicity.

4.  Increased % of extracellular water compared to % of intracellular water.  This is due to toxicity again.  The body is trying to wall off and dilute the toxins so the cells are dehydrated and the water is more outside the cell than inside the cell.  In this case the chemical reactions in the body cells are compromised and the communication between cells is decreased.  If left unchecked this can lead to serious problems.

5.  Inflammation.  With all the above going on the body is inflamed.  The body can’t dump toxins and it gets irritated.  Then the body starts fighting the infection and toxicity and turns up the cortisol levels and adrenals.  When this happens the body is in “fight or flight” and does not heal well.

So what to do?

With IMT we have manual therapy hands on techniques to clear the above problems.  With Matrix Energetics we have a way to supercharge the IMT and help it occur faster and continuously.  Patients can continue to improve even after leaving the office.

I’m including a success story from one of our clients.  We saw her 6 visits and she had results that we see in our office.

Her Success Story:

Below is the description I wrote up about my experience with you and

Matrix Energetics.

I’m excited about the changes in my life!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

Transformation!

I have been a seeker of many types of transformation for as long as I

can remember.  In August of 2009, I was getting ready for a trip to

Italy and was concerned because I had a number of physical conditions

that made traveling difficult.  I wondered what to do and who to see.

My intuition told me to go see Ralph Havens P.T. I had been treated by

Ralph about 6 years prior and thought he may be able to help me again.

My concerns this time were:

•   Back pain, especially when sitting for longer than ½ hour

(sometimes less).  This was very pronounced when sitting in airplane

seats even on short flights and the trip to Italy would be 15 hours!

(was I out of my mind to consider it?)

•   Pain in both shoulders:  I was unable to carry anything over my

shoulders like a shoulder strap purse that weighed more than one pound.

•   Groin pain when doing certain Yoga moves.

•   Neck pain

I only had time for 3 appointments with Ralph before my trip.  The first

was on August 31st 2009.

I wasn’t really convinced that just 3 treatments would do any good but I

decided to give it a try.   On the first visit Ralph didn’t seem to be

doing much, just holding his hands on, over and around me in various

ways.  However I had a sense of total trust that whatever the heck he

was doing, was a good thing, so I just relaxed and went with the flow.

I later found out he was doing Matrix Energetics.

At first, I just felt deeply relaxed and then, very unexpectedly, my

body began to move on its own.  Wow!  I knew something amazing was

happening.  I didn’t know what and I didn’t care because I just knew and

trusted that it was a good thing.

On the way home, after the first treatment I felt euphoric.  Everything

seemed different.  I was happier, more at peace.  The sky was intensely

beautiful.  Something wonderful was occurring!

On the next few visits my body responded to the Matrix Energetics by

moving in some very dramatic ways.  I just let it move where it

wanted….a strange but agreeable experience.  Ralph said that some of the

things my body was doing were like advanced Qigong moves.  I wouldn’t

know, as I’ve never taken Qigong.  Also some movements occurred as if my

body were in a Chi machine.  Cool!

The movements periodically continued outside of PT as well.  It was

rather humorous to be watching TV and start moving spontaneously.  My

husband didn’t know what to think!

After the 3 treatments, I was off to Italy.  I made it on the 15 hour

flight without significant pain.  Yes I still needed pain pills and my

TENS unit, but I MADE it!  That may not sound like a miracle, but to me

it certainly was.  The longest plane trip I had previously been on was

only 6 hours. Even with pain pills and TENS, I was in significant pain

in the past.

While in Italy, I was able to carry a small backpack filled with

groceries for about 45 min.   Another miracle!  I hadn’t been able to do

anything like that in years without significant shoulder, neck and/ or

back pain

I also had times of pure, intense joy, so lovely and unexpected that

tears came to my eyes.  The joy did not have so much to do with anything

in particular that was going on, it was, rather, coming from a place

deep within me.  I have suffered from depression for many years, so this

was an amazing gift.  I’m tearing up with gratitude as I type this.

After returning from Italy, I scheduled more appointments with Ralph,

and we continued with the Matrix Energetics.

Here are some of the things I have noticed which I believe are related

to the sessions:

•   My Yoga poses are easier and I feel more flexible.

•   I have virtually no right shoulder pain.

•   Orgasms that are more intense and pleasurable than ever before

in my life.

•   I have many moments of profound joy. (more on this below)

•   The ability to go with ‘what is’ …living, experiencing and

honoring the present moment.

•   Less back pain while sitting

The lovely moments of joy that I began to notice in Italy have

continued, and occur more frequently.   It can arise at anytime,

anyplace (even doing dishes!), because it’s coming from within me and

also from an interconnectedness that is beyond me. It’s not determined

by my circumstances.

For a long time I have known, intellectually, that all the things in my

life are there for a reason and should be honored.  After the Matrix

Energetics with Ralph, however, I was able to know and experience this

on a deeper level.  One day in particular comes to mind.  I was on my

way over for a session with Ralph and I felt physically and emotionally

terrible.  I am a sensitive person.  What I mean by this is that I react

to many things in my environment in what can be considered a negative

way.  Many foods, dust, chemicals, cigarettes, perfume etc. make me feel

physically or emotionally ill.  On that day, I was reacting to something

and felt very depressed.  I said to myself, “I wish I weren’t so

sensitive!”  I immediately had an epiphany……….NO! my sensitivities are,

in part, what makes me who I am.  I would not be who I am without them

and I love who I am!  I instantly felt something flip in me and….. POOF

the depression etc. was gone.   WOW!

Ralph had taught me something, on a previous session that helped with

this process.  Which was something like:  If one feels that something in

their life needs to be changed, then ask a question like:  “How has this

been useful?”  Let it drop to your heart.  Then ask something like: “If

it were different, how would it look?”  Drop that to your heart.  Then

forget about it and let it go.  This, along with the Matrix Energetics

in general allowed me to have that profound shift.

Do I think that Ralph or Matrix Energetics has totally caused these

changes?  Yes and no.   As I said, I have been a seeker of

transformation for many years.  I see what I experience with Ralph and

Matrix Energetics to be a kind of key to a door of transformation.  I

got to the doorway but was not quite able to step across the threshold.

What I struggled to achieve before, seemed to miraculously happen with

Matrix Energetics and Ralph Havens!

Thank You!

Matrix Energetics – The Science and Art of Transformation

December 12, 2009

What is Matrix Energetics and how can it help me?

Here’s the deal.  Used to be, I would ask clients if a treatment took away their pain.  Or if we had changed their pain level, when they would seek me out for treatment.  Since tapping into the world of Matrix Energetics, I no longer ask that question.

What I do ask is, “What do you notice that is different?”  You may say “so what”.  Have you ever heard the expression, “don’t look where you don’t want to go”?  It’s like when you are riding a motorcycle on a windy road on the edge of a mountain.  The one place you don’t look is over the edge where you could fall.

Many times when injured, clients will dwell on the injury, testing to see whether it’s still there; upset when it is, and worried if it will return when it’s better. I know I’ve done this many times in the past.  This puts us in a duality; a fight against the problem.  Problem is that’s “looking where you don’t want to go”; and what happens when we fight something?  It persists.  Think of the war on terrorism, or war on drugs or war on poverty.  Please tell me a war on something we’ve won lately!  It’s hard to find.

With Matrix Energetics we utilize the unlimited healing potential of __________.  The reason I leave a blank is that once you name __________, it’s not that.  If you did want to name it you could call it grace, the field, God, the zero-point field, or any other name; but once you name it you limit it; and it’s not that.  In fact it’s no thing, and every thing.  Sounds confusing; that’s good if it’s confusing that leaves a little “wiggle room”.  This allows for the potential for the universe or grace or whatever it is to slip in and transform.

These are not new ideas, but have been alluded to and described throughout time in various traditions from Christianity, Buddhism, Yoga, and Quantum Physics perspectives. Even Yoda alluded to it when he said “there is no try, only do”.  He didn’t’ get it totally right according to Dr. Bartlett;  It’s more like “Just Be”.   Kinda like the bible verse that says “be still and know that I am God”.  What this says to me is “Be still” and what happens when I’m still?  “I know”.  And what do I know?….. “God”.  And what is God?  Definitely something we can’t explain or put in a word.  While I’ve studied many methods, it wasn’t until I met Dr. Richard Bartlett, that I saw how it can be tapped in order to allow healing and transformation on a real and quantifiable level.  Dr. Bartlett was given a gift and shown a powerful way to access that healing space and has been able to teach us how to access it as well.  I feel I am giving him the well-deserved credit for the way I’m explaining this now.

What I’m talking about is not only healing the injury someone comes in to fix up; but also changing in ways that we could not even predict or imagine.  For example, I’ve recently had a client tell me they are grateful for having had their shoulder injury because they would not have found us and the other changes in their life would not have happened if they had not had a reason to come in.  This client now has significant changes in longstanding hands and feet numbness, improvements in her relationship, improvements in her mood and a real sense of peace for the first time in her life.  She even reported no longer fighting with her significant other.  Her shoulder is also no longer hurting or limited.

Now when we ask “what’s different since the last treatment” we get answers that continue to amaze and inspire us.  And we know that we didn’t do it.  How could we make changes like that?  We can’t.  But we can now access the space that allows for healing to occur.  And healing can happen on all levels.

Jen, Danielle, Cathie and I are excited to have this to offer people and want to share it.  We are available for group demos or a short individual demo session.  Please contact us and we can set up a time to experience Matrix Energetics and tap into the field of transformation.

For more information on Dr. Richard Bartlett you can check out his books Matrix Energetics and The Physics of Miracles.

I can admit that in the past I have been sold snake oil. I have a whole cabinet full of “miracle cures” and another spilling over with various prescriptions from doctors.  I gave up on both a long time ago, especially about 3 years ago when my MS was constantly flaring up, each time robbing me of the use of my legs and landing me in the hospital for months.  Ralph and company were able to ease the pain in my lower back, which in the hospital required IV pain meds.  This was tremendous, but the most progress came 5 months ago when I eliminated gluten from my diet.  Ralph provided me with a wealth of information and research from highly regarded medical journals.  This eased my neuroscience-oriented mind, and the snake oil alarm in my head never went off, there were no red flags, and instead of the fake hope I’d experienced before, I felt real hope.

My life began 26 years ago, took a turn at 20 with my MS diagnosis, stalled completely 3 years ago, and began again 5 months ago.  I remember telling Ralph after being gluten free 2-3 months that I felt I had already made up for the 2 1/2 – 3 years I was in and out of the hospital.  Within a month of going gluten free, I knew something wonderful was happening – life was livable again, constant fatigue replaced by constant energy, and the spasticity in my legs I had experienced daily was gone.  Even my neurologist, who does not speak in non-pharmaceutical terms, could not find any trace of it.  His response to all of these positive changes after gluten-free: “You can’t argue with results like this!”.

Doctors and MS groups look at me with jaws dropped to the floor.  I make sure and tell them about having gone gluten-free. I see such a high likelihood for fast improvement that I recommend at least trying a gluten-free diet to all my friends with MS, other neurological problems, and even those who are healthy but say they “could be better.”  It can’t hurt to try, and you never know just how amazing the results might be.
