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

July 20, 2010

Fibromyalgia

certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner

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!

Running Biomechanics – We’re we born to run ? How to Run with less effort –

July 15, 2010

I’ll be writing up the components of optimal running biomechanics in the next few blogs and telling you how you can download the information into your own running and see immediate results.  This post is to get you thinking about the difference between local fast runners and world class distance runners.  When you start to ask certain questions, you start to see that most of our assumptions about what it takes to run fast or injury free are not correct and there may be a better way.

Here’s the teaser:

Why is it that most runners’ legs turnover at 90 to 95 cycles / minute; both the local fast guys running 15 minute 5K’s and the Olympians and World Record Holders running sub 13:00 minute 5K’s.  What’s going on here? If it’s about stride length; if that’s the difference, then why are the world class runners usually in the 5″4 to 5’8 range ? What is tensegrity? Why should bones bend? What is the wind up effect?  What does a negative vacuum in the lungs have to do with anything?  some basics are in the link below,  but I’ll let you know how I can get you more of this information at a later date and how to download it for your own running.  Below is  some info I wrote up 15 years ago and I’ll give you the latest coming up.

Many labels and if you look thru the medical literature and treatment options one thing becomes clear.  Doctors and health professionals don’t know what it is and sure don;t know how to make it go away.

I’m going to start with a success story from one of my former clients.  I say former because I haven’t seen her in almost a year but she has sent me a few emails of what she noticed after our sessions.  I treated her with Matrix Energetics 3 sessions, then 3 more which were mostly going over her home program.

Here is the first email I received from a woman who was on permanent disability from chronic pain, environmental sensitivities, anxiety and depression among other ailments.  She was in her 50’s

Here is a follow up email from the same client:

Hi Ralph,

Happy New Year to you too!

Lots of changes over here.  I’m now eating only raw organic vegan food

so that’s quite a switch.  Also consuming super foods like blue green

algae.   I’ve had times of abundant energy and mental clarity and times

of extreme fatigue and brain fog.  As my oldest son, Brian, likes to

say………It’s all good!

I sat through most my acting class yesterday with very little back

discomfort (3 hour class)  A miracle!   My left shoulder is moving

easier with less discomfort……….a miracle!  I’m not taking any

herbs or supplements for anxiety or depression because I don’t need

them……..first time in many many years…..a miracle!  I’ve cleaned

out an entire drawer of many bottles of supplements that I don’t feel I

need anymore and made room for a gizmo that makes noodles out of

zucchini………yea!

I’m not afraid of the future.

I’m reading the “busting loose from the money game” book.  Parts I just

start laughing (in recognition of the truth) at because I’ve suspected

things like that for a long time.  But I sense that I’m not ready to

read it all yet.  I’m focusing on my health transformation.  I’m reading

the “Sunfood diet success system”  by David Wolfe.  It’s about having

health with raw vegan food,  but also about the spiritual, psychological

roll in vibrant health.  I’m learning a lot.

My body continues to go into Matrix mode every day.

Things are shifting that I don’t know how to talk about yet.

Thanks for helping me make this shift.

How are you?

Best wishes,

W.H.

And just recently I received this email from the same client:

Hi Ralph,
I hope this finds you well.  Making plans for your wedding?

I have some wonderful news concerning my 85 year old mother, Doris, who lives in Denver.
She had been having pain in her back/ legs for a long time now,  perhaps a year or so.  It became quite severe about a month ago, mostly in her legs, and in the last few weeks was getting unbearable and she was using a walker for the first time in her life. She had tried a number of treatments,  PT, Pilates, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc.  The Dr. tried steroid injections.. all of no help.  She finally was so bad that the Dr. recommended surgery which she readily agreed to……….a laminectomy and fusion.   The MRI  showed multiple causes for her issues.

I decided to fly out right away and help her.  I got here Thursday afternoon, July 1st.   It was hard to see my Mom in such a state.   Without pain meds,  she said the pain in her legs was a 10/10 and with narcotic pain meds, 8/10.  Ralph,  my Mom is a very tough lady and doesn’t usually complain about things even if I know she is in pain.  She was also really confused because of the pain meds and needed to use a walker for the first time in her life.

Let me back up just a bit now.  On the plane trip over here,  I brought along the Matrix Energetics book which I’ve had for a long time but never read.  Just reading the book,  my body started to move on it’s own in the familiar chi type movements that you noticed when you were treating me.  I decided to ask about this and wrote:
Dear God, please tell me about Matrix Energetics:
I got this message:
Dear being of the universe, there is immense pleasure in allowing what IS to manifest.  You don’t need to try to conjure up anything new, just experience what is there.  Become a beacon for all that is of the light.  It is beyond anything that you can imagine.  Let go and ask for what you wish.  The force is there to assist in ways that are amazing and sparkling with Divine energy.  The flow is in you now (more chi movements)  Feel it, use it,  enjoy it.

then I asked:
How can I use this to help Mom?
Love her where she is at.  Don’t try and change her.  Honor where she is at.  No change is possible without first honoring the person/souls process.  Be aware of helpers that come.  She has many that can be available to allow her to be free. Allow her guides to guide you.  Be open to the process.  Leave judgment at the door.
Me: thank you.

So this is the space I came to Denver in.  On Friday, July 2nd,  we had a busy day with medical appointments and I later told Mom a bit about Matrix Energetics.  I asked her if she was willing to let me try to do some work with her and she happily agreed.  I just followed my intuition re. what to do for her……went with some of the things you taught me and some energy healing work I had done in the past.  Mainly just went with the flow.

The next morning,  she didn’t take her narcotic pain pill,  only some ibuprofen.   To my amazement,  she went out into the yard with me where I was pulling weeds etc,  and sat on a little stone wall and put compost around her plants.  Later we were sitting on her porch and she looked over at me and said………..I don’t have any pain!  What?!!!!  Ralph it really was a miracle!   She went 4 more hours with no pain at all and then later in the day it came back a bit but only a 4/10.  She was walking around without her walker and even went downstairs to her basement to retrieve a folding chair to watch the fireworks!  (well,  OK, she was a day early,  but that could happen to anyone.)  lol
I can’t believe the change.  I’ve never seen such a quick turn around in all of my life!  Was is all do to the energy work?  I don’t know for sure,  but it seems to me that something miraculous happened and perhaps it’s not up to me to figure it out anyway.

We shall see what happens next!

Sending many blessings your way (for Jen too!)

W.H.

___________________

So what did I do?  And did I know what the cause of her condition was?  How did she heal? Was it something I did?  What is Matrix Energetics?

What I’ve noticed with my work as a Certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner is that I feel blessed to be a part of someone’s healing and transformation.  With my Integrative Manual Therapy background I could let you know what I “saw” and what I “treated” but that would just be my Ego taking credit for something or trying to make sense of a Miracle.

I can tell you that we see Miracles daily in our practice.  With Matrix Energetics we drop into the space where “it’s already done” where “miracles happen” and we let go and allow it to happen.  But we also use our intent for specific outcomes by gathering power and activating it but at the same time Letting Go of any expectation or need for anything to happen.  I know it sounds confusing but this is the world of Matrix Energetics and it has it’s explanation in Quantum Physics, SuperString Theory, Morphic Fields, Scalar Physics and spiritual traditions.

To describe it or explain it would be akin to explaining or describing Fire.  You could get a PhD in Fire but you wouldn’t know squat about fire until you actually touched it; and in that instance you would not have any more questions about “what is fire”. You would Know It on a deeper level.  This is the best way to understand Matrix Energetics – Experience it for yourself.

call or email me anything you like and I’ll do my best to answer questions for you.  Also you could email me and I could send you a newsletter about Matrix Energetics.  But please call us and we can set up a time for you to Experience Matrix Energetics!

Chronic Pain – Matrix Energetics and Integrative Medicine / Integrative Manual Therapy

June 29, 2010

What is it you do?  Can you explain it?

I could talk a lot about what we think we’re doing.  In fact what do any of us really know to be true?  I mean really know?  What scientific “fact” or idea hasn’t been disproved at a later date.  So I want to start with that.

We really don’t know what we do but we’ve been blessed to be part of someone’s healing, with miracles of all sorts and with transforming lives.  There are explanations that make sense to explain what we do but I am open to the idea that the reason they work is for reasons I may never know.

There are many techniques we know and use but overlying all of them is what is called Matrix Energetics.  With matrix energetics for us it really is a way of Being. It’s us being in the state of Grace.  There is a reproducible way to get there with Matrix Energetics.

Then what happens to our clients and their family and relationships is usually what you would call useful or good or beneficial.  It tends to show up in ways that the client likes such as healing an injured area or condition.  But it also tends to show up in unexpected ways of transformation in their lives.

So what do we do?

First we drop into the space where healing occurs.  You could call it grace, or the field, or God, or anything; but once you name it, you limit it and it’s not really something you could put in a word or phrase or even a book.  It’s kind of like Fire.  You could do a lot of talking about what fire is, what it feels like; you could show the physics of Fire but you won’t have a clue what it is until you touch it.  In that instance you experience what Fire is.  So we drop the client into this healing space and they get to experience what it is like to be in the presence of unlimited power and space.  Many times this is all that is needed to shift a person’s pattern of pain or problem to one of healing and transformation.  Stuff Changes.

Then we do what shows up.  So sometimes it will be a technique such as Integrative Manual Therapy.  We’re certified in IMT and have taken over 110 classes in this field alone.  IMT has an extensive series of assessment diagnostics using our hands to feel problems and conditions in the body systems such as joint, bones, muscles, and also organs, arteries, veins, lymph vessels and nodes as well as addressing issues around toxicity, pathogens, mental, emotional, spiritual, miasms and more.

We combine that with anything else we are trained in such as sole support orthotics, Kangen alkaline water machine, detox diets, gluten free programs, First Line therapy to address metabolic syndrome problems, and Pilates.

We have access to many methods and we will use whatever is appropriate for the client.  We drop into the space where healing happens with Matrix Energetics and then see what shows up that would be useful and transformative on all levels for our client.

When looking at the best ways to help someone with signs and symptoms related to gluten sensitivity, we have many tools to use.  First we like to get a 100% gluten free eating plan started.  The research over the past 10 years shows that if someone with an auto-immune condition, joint or bone pains, fibromyalgia and other conditions goes gluten-free, many times most if not all of their symptoms improve and can even clear completely.

One reason we think this happens is purely physiological.  The immune system cranks up and starts attacking the person when gluten is being eaten.  By taking gluten completely out of the diet, the immune system calms down and rests and the body can heal.

But another reason we like to use gluten free programs is that because so many people have benefited from a gluten free diet, because so many researchers have found it helpful and because so many practitioners have had similar results taking their clients off gluten, there is an enormous morphic field concerning gluten sensitivity.  What I mean by that is that there is information in the field so that people who “tap into” this gluten-free program benefit from the energetic field of all the people who have been part of gluten sensitivity research, treatments and eating programs.  This may be new information to you.  If it is you can read more about morphic fields at http://www.sheldrake.org/homepage.html. This is a powerful way to benefit from a gluten free eating plan.

Using Integrative Manual Therapy, the work of Sharon Giammatteo, PT, PhD, we are able to use structural and physiological manual therapy methods to help fix up the cecum (large intestine) and the other areas affected by gluten.  Also through using supplements, most notably zinc, chlorophyl and manganese B 12, along with high quality fish oils, both the structure and the function of the GI tract can regain health.

This Integrative Manual Therapy (IMT) approach used to take many hours to fix up a colon ( GI tract)  and was mostly useful if a client agreed to a 100% gluten free program.  Now we use Matrix Energetics, a transformational way to access the healing potential of the zero-point field. By using Matrix Energetics, we can tap into whatever is useful to help someone heal or transform.  We can use IMT, Matrix, supplements, and other healing modalities all under the umbrella of Matrix Energetics.  Matrix Energetics basically super-charges any other modality we choose to use to help someone.

Here is just one success story from one of our clients.  We saw this client for only 6 treatments over the course of a few months.

“I sat through most of my acting class yesterday with very little back
discomfort (3 hour class)  A miracle!   My left shoulder is moving
easier with less discomfort……….a miracle!  I’m not taking any
herbs or supplements for anxiety or depression because I don’t need
them……..first time in many many years…..a miracle!  I’ve cleaned
out an entire drawer of many bottles of supplements that I don’t feel I
need anymore and made room for a gizmo that makes noodles out of
zucchini………yea!

I’m not afraid of the future.”

Gluten Sensitivity – Dr. Mark Hyman – From The Huffington Post

January 3, 2010

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-mark-hyman/gluten-what-you-dont-know_b_379089.html

This is a very well documented and referenced article by Dr. Mark Hyman on gluten sensitivity and how it can masquerade as a number of ailments and diseases; over 55 diseases recognized by the American Medical Association as having links to gluten sensitivity.  If you or anyone you know has any of these conditions please pass it along to them;  You could save their life.  Gluten sensitivity has been linked to a 30+% increase in death in the medical literature.

Here’s a partial list of conditions caused by gluten sensitivity:

osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease, inflammatory bowel disease, anemia, cancerfatigue, canker sores, (v) and rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and almost all other autoimmune diseases. Gluten is also linked to many psychiatric (vi) and neurological diseases, including anxietydepression, (vii) schizophrenia, (viiidementia, (ix)migraines, epilepsy, and neuropathy (nerve damage). (x) It has also been linked to autism.(ix)
