META-Health is based on the Body-Mind-Social Connection and has been used for the last 11+ years by thousands of health professionals to help their clients find the root-cause of illness quickly. By knowing which specific conflicts, emotions, beliefs and lifestyle choices are affecting our well-being we are able to find personalized integrative and holistic solutions for clients and patients.

Johannes R. Fisslinger, Founder META-Health University and conference organizer said: “Using the 8 META-Health Milestones of Self Healing helps us unlock the hidden meaning of symptoms​. META-Health is empirical-based​ and produces results quickly.  I firmly believe that the Art and the Science of Self-Healing will revolutionize medicine and health care“.

Some of the highlights of the conference were:

  • Bernie Siegel MD shared his 50 years of experience in his trademark entertaining and inspirational presentation. He shared many miracles of self-healing in his medical practice and how patient’s drawing and painting can open up possibilities.
  • Gary Craig, Founder of EFT/Tapping, talked about his personal story and his newest evolution process Optimal EFT. Gary spent hours talking to participants, sharing his wisdom and being an inspiration to all.
  • Dr. Kwesi, META-Health Eye Specialist presented in his compassionate way a variety of his client with cataract, conjunctivitis, glaucoma and other eye symptoms and how not being truthful to ourselves is at the core of disease.
  • Diana Stefani-Hunyadi MD and LJ Hunyadi shared their expertise working with clients with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders and presented effective solutions.
  • Lars Mygind, one of Denmarks leading therapist, entertained the participants in his unique style and demonstrated the latest research of how traumas, stress triggers, emotions are directly linked to specific illnesses.
  • Christa Krahnert ND discussed the latest research in microbiome and her discoveries that we actually need to completely rethink our beliefs about microbes.
  • META-Health Master Trainers Susanne Billander, Anu Mehta, Helena Kajuma, Jasmina Kovacev shared their unique wisdom and talents during the 5-day conference and taught workshops to help participants integrate META-Health into their practice.

One of the highlights was the official board-certification of the new META-Health Master Trainers (META-MT)Martin Hejlesen Jensen (Denmark), Walter Posch (Austria), Ismail Eldemellawy (Egypt) by Intl. META-Medicine Association board members.

What most conference attendees loved about the conference is the quality of the materials presented and the sense of community.

  • “​Wow, what an inspiring 5 days of presentations and workshops. I attended and loved it all. A repeated theme in many presentations is the need for us to be truly authentic to ourselves.​ I would like to extend a huge thank you; to Johannes and everyone involved in organizing and providing this wonderful conference and venue in beautiful Hawaii; to all speakers for your gift of knowledge and passion in META-Health; and to all who attended both in person and online. You all created a magical time of love and connection
    Gaylene Hansen, META-Health Master Practitioner New Zealand​
  • “I fully enjoyed Hawaiian Village as a conference venue – a perfect choice!”
    Kazuyo Luz Esperanza Shimokawabe, META-Health Master Practitioner California
  • The META-Health Conference in Hawaii 2015 was a fantastic gathering of brilliant minds, sharing techniques and ideas that are taking us to the next level of optimal health. There was something for everyone, whether you work with physical, mental, spiritual… that is the beauty of MH, it is so integrative. One thing that stood out for me was its combination with yoga. Bringing awareness to the body while practicing poses is taken to another level when including the META-Health perspective, which I see as a fantastic way to spread the word and integrate it into a daily way of thinking.
    Falguni Mather, META-Health Master Practitioner HongKong

Susan Osman, BBC and China TV investigative reporter and TV host did MC the conference and was also interviewing speakers and attendees with powerful self-healing stories for an upcoming documentary.

MISSING LINK FOUND BETWEEN BRAIN, IMMUNE SYSTEM; MAJOR DISEASE IMPLICATIONS

150601122445_1_540x360.jpg (540×297)

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer’s to multiple sclerosis.

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. That such vessels could have escaped detection when the lymphatic system has been so thoroughly mapped throughout the body is surprising on its own, but the true significance of the discovery lies in the effects it could have on the study and treatment of neurological diseases ranging from autism to Alzheimer’s disease to multiple sclerosis.

“Instead of asking, ‘How do we study the immune response of the brain?’ ‘Why do multiple sclerosis patients have the immune attacks?’ now we can approach this mechanistically. Because the brain is like every other tissue connected to the peripheral immune system through meningeal lymphatic vessels,” said Jonathan Kipnis, PhD, professor in the UVA Department of Neuroscience and director of UVA’s Center for Brain Immunology and Glia (BIG). “It changes entirely the way we perceive the neuro-immune interaction. We always perceived it before as something esoteric that can’t be studied. But now we can ask mechanistic questions.”

“We believe that for every neurological disease that has an immune component to it, these vessels may play a major role,” Kipnis said. “Hard to imagine that these vessels would not be involved in a [neurological] disease with an immune component.”

The major 5 Points and Phases of Healing

5 major points and phases of META-Healing

Did you ever notice that your symptoms started at a very specific point in time? You know what I mean. Suddenly, something happened (trigger) and you have back pain or eczema or high blood pressure. Then at some point the symptoms disappeared by themselves or through some form of therapy. So without analyzing much we found 2 very clear defined points of every disease and healing cycle which is the onset and disappearance of symptoms. The important part is to not stop here but to integrate all major points and phases that are part of a complete healing cycle. From a META-Health perspective, a complete healing cycle goes through 5 specific points and phases. You might notice only parts of that healing process like inflammation, headache or exhaustion in the regeneration phase or high blood pressure in the stress phase. This natural cycle of stress (yang) and regeneration (yin) is going on all the time in your body and is the principal process of your organism to create balance. Let’s look at the different aspects of these 5 major points and phases and how they affect bodymind. Continue reading

META-Constellations reviewed

Brain constellations in the understanding of META-Health are an important and interesting field which provides insights not only into Meta-strategies of survival with unsoluable conflicts, but even into the origin of our social group structuring mechanisms!
This is especially valid for the territory-and sexuality-relays which this essay is about.

A short recap:
the cortex relays of larynx mucosa, the periinsular complex* ), rectum mucosa and right bladder + urinary ducts mucosae in the left hemisphere, and those of bronchial mucosa, the right periinsular complex**, stomach mucosa*** and left bladder & urinary ducts mucosae in the right hemisphere, are reacting to conflicts of social position that have a special character reflecting archaic male and female roles. This means, primary conflicts in these areas can be experienced by the gender this conflict is linked to only – “male” conflicts are related to his territory, his property and the patriarch role, “female” ones to her belonging, being loved, identity and home.

As these relays also affect our sexual hormone balance, obviously we don´t stay in this limited range of archaic perception. In modern human societies, we find active and outgoing “male” qualities in women as useful as some “female” caring and receptive traits in men. Our different personalities do not restrict us to rigid gender roles anymore. Interestingly, this seems to be more the case in cultures that have “lost” or given up their roots or traditionale role models, although there have been characters expressing themselves in opposite roles (not necessarily sexual) throughout history. It is a logical assumption that biological conflicts and emotionally charged perceptions are a main cause for influencing or altering our personality. Think of the stories of Saul in the Bible, Francis of Assisi, or Joan of Arc: they underwent a consistent change of character, which measured with nowaday´s scale of normality, might even have been diagnosed as psychopathic.

These conditions however, if we observe them today, more often are marked by bipolar behaviour, by altering states of mania and depression. The explanation META-Health has for this is the concept of territorial constellations influencing the hormonal scale: two or more simultaneously active conflicts in these special relays, which are covering both hemispheres. These patterns, although they can lead to destructive and antisocial behaviour, are Meta-strategies to escape an otherwise lethal impact of the unsolved conflict leading to cachexia, or to die in the healing peak after the conflict´s resolution.

mania_depression_600px

With the beginning of a territorial constellation, the physical impact of the conflict mass is decreased and it´s expression is mainly on the psychological level.
Which means that these purposeful constellations should be handled with care in META-Therapy. Theoretically, if just one of the conflicts would get resolved and the constellation ended, the other conflict would again build up conflict mass and have full physical impact, possibly leading to dramatic consequences. This has been shown true at least for “natural” and unconscious resolutions, as they happen when a conflict ends by change of outer circumstances, like when retirement is ending a long-time conflictive work-relationship. META-Health case documentations show however, that when a life lesson is learned in the process, it´s META-meaning found, that the regeneration phase can be much smoother than expected from the original conflict mass accumulated. It must be taken into account that this learning step can never be forced upon a person.

Coming back to the concept of personality co-created by our perception and conflicts, we feel that most of this happens already early in life, and that our character is part of our self-definition and identity. We experience certain traits as resourceful while fighting against others. How does this fit into our META-Health perspective?
Although representing sexual functions and behaviour, territorial and sexual conflicts can be perceived independent of age and maturity by means of genealogical imprints and trans-generational traditions. A small child can experience these types of conflicts in his own sexuality, as well as pick up emotional patterns from his parents. Depending on history, pregnancy and birth experience and education, several constellations will be formed in childhood, that later get re-triggered by similar VAKOGS and emotions.

This is not a bad thing, but can actually give us abilities, depth and fun, creating a unique profile of personality. Knowing how to consciously trigger an active and powerful state (= mania) and how to balance it so that the experience is positive for all concerned, leads to a rich range of options to make use of our character traits.

At the same time we grow as humans, increasing our awareness and understanding about what makes us re-act.
Examples for this can be seen in scientists and inventors using an “autistic” mode to focus when working; in visionaries, empreneurs and leaders creating innovations with help of their megalomania; in artists and athletes using aggression in a positive and creative way. Whenever we find a niche or field of interest and self-expression, the same energy that could make ourselves and others suffer, is channeled and transformed into making the world richer.

ARE VIRUSES ALIVE?

COMMENT: The authors statement says it all: “Although viruses challenge our concept of what “living” means, they are vital members of the web of life.” Viruses are an important part of life and just naming some “bad” does them not justice. From a META-Health Point of view microbes are an important part of any organ process especially during regeneration. Johannes 

Mace Windu Planet

In an episode of the classic 1950s television comedy The Honeymooners, Brooklyn bus driver Ralph Kramden loudly explains to his wife, Alice, “You know that I know how easy you get the virus.” Half a century ago even regular folks like the Kramdens had some knowledge of viruses—as microscopic bringers of disease. Yet it is almost certain that they did not know exactly what a virus was. They were, and are, not alone.

For about 100 years, the scientifi c community has repeatedly changed its collective mind over what viruses are. First seen as poisons, then as life-forms, then biological chemicals, viruses today are thought of as being in a gray area between living and nonliving: they cannot replicate on their own but can do so in truly living cells and can also affect the behavior of their hosts profoundly. The categorization of viruses as nonliving during much of the modern era of biological science has had an unintended consequence: it has led most researchers to ignore viruses in the study of evolution. Finally, however, scientists are beginning to appreciate viruses as fundamental players in the history of life.

Coming to Terms
It is easy to see why viruses have been diffi cult to pigeonhole. They seem to vary with each lens applied to examine them. The initial interest in viruses stemmed from their association with diseases—the word “virus” has its roots in the Latin term for “poison.” In the late 19th century researchers realized that certain diseases, including rabies and foot-and-mouth, were caused by particles that seemed to behave like bacteria but were much smaller. Because they were clearly biological themselves and could be spread from one victim to another with obvious biological effects, viruses were then thought to be the simplest of all living, gene-bearing life-forms.

Their demotion to inert chemicals came after 1935, when Wendell M. Stanley and his colleagues, at what is now the Rockefeller University in New York City, crystallized a virus— tobacco mosaic virus—for the fi rst time. They saw that it consisted of a package of complex biochemicals. But it lacked essential systems necessary for metabolic functions, the biochemical activity of life. Stanley shared the 1946 Nobel Prize— in chemistry, not in physiology or medicine—for this work.

Further research by Stanley and others established that a virus consists of nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) enclosed in a protein coat that may also shelter viral proteins involved in infection. By that description, a virus seems more like a chemistry set than an organism. But when a virus enters a cell (called a host after infection), it is far from inactive. It sheds its coat, bares its genes and induces the cell’s own replication machinery to reproduce the intruder’s DNA or RNA and manufacture more viral protein based on the instructions in the viral nucleic acid. The newly created viral bits assemble and, voilà, more virus arises, which also may infect other cells.

These behaviors are what led many to think of viruses as existing at the border between chemistry and life. More poetically, virologists Marc H. V. van Regenmortel of the University of Strasbourg in France and Brian W. J. Mahy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recently said that with their dependence on host cells, viruses lead “a kind of borrowed life.” Interestingly, even though biologists long favored the view that viruses were mere boxes of chemicals, they took advantage of viral activity in host cells to determine how nucleic acids code for proteins: indeed, modern molecular biology rests on a foundation of information gained through viruses.

Molecular biologists went on to crystallize most of the essential components of cells and are today accustomed to thinking about cellular constituents—for example, ribosomes, mitochondria, membranes, DNA and proteins—as either chemical machinery or the stuff that the machinery uses or produces. This exposure to multiple complex chemical structures that carry out the processes of life is probably a reason that most molecular biologists do not spend a lot of time puzzling over whether viruses are alive. For them, that exercise might seem equivalent to pondering whether those individual subcellular constituents are alive on their own. This myopic view allows them to see only how viruses co-opt cells or cause disease. The more sweeping question of viral contributions to the history of life on earth, which I will address shortly, remains for the most part unanswered and even unasked.

To Be or Not to Be
The seemingly simple question of whether or not viruses are alive, which my students often ask, has probably defi ed a simple answer all these years because it raises a fundamental issue: What exactly defi nes “life?” A precise scientifi c defi nition of life is an elusive thing, but most observers would agree that life includes certain qualities in addition to an ability to replicate. For example, a living entity is in a state bounded by birth and death. Living organisms also are thought to require a degree of biochemical autonomy, carrying on the metabolic activities that produce the molecules and energy needed to sustain the organism. This level of autonomy is essential to most definitions.

Viruses, however, parasitize essentially all biomolecular aspects of life. That is, they depend on the host cell for the raw materials and energy necessary for nucleic acid synthesis, protein synthesis, processing and transport, and all other biochemical activities that allow the virus to multiply and spread. One might then conclude that even though these processes come under viral direction, viruses are simply nonliving parasites of living metabolic systems. But a spectrum may exist between what is certainly alive and what is not.

A rock is not alive. A metabolically active sack, devoid of genetic material and the potential for propagation, is also not alive. A bacterium, though, is alive. Although it is a single cell, it can generate energy and the molecules needed to sustain itself, and it can reproduce. But what about a seed? A seed might not be considered alive. Yet it has a potential for life, and it may be destroyed. In this regard, viruses resemble seeds more than they do live cells. They have a certain potential, which can be snuffed out, but they do not attain the more autonomous state of life.

Another way to think about life is as an emergent property of a collection of certain nonliving things. Both life and consciousness are examples of emergent complex systems. They each require a critical level of complexity or interaction to achieve their respective states. A neuron by itself, or even in a network of nerves, is not conscious—whole brain complexity is needed. Yet even an intact human brain can be biologically alive but incapable of consciousness, or “brain-dead.” Similarly, neither cellular nor viral individual genes or proteins are by themselves alive. The enucleated cell is akin to the state of being braindead, in that it lacks a full critical complexity. A virus, too, fails to reach a critical complexity. So life itself is an emergent, complex state, but it is made from the same fundamental, physical building blocks that constitute a virus. Approached from this perspective, viruses, though not fully alive, may be thought of as being more than inert matter: they verge on life.

In fact, in October, French researchers announced fi ndings that illustrate afresh just how close some viruses might come. Didier Raoult and his colleagues at the University of the Mediterranean in Marseille announced that they had sequenced the genome of the largest known virus, Mimivirus, which was discovered in 1992. The virus, about the same size as a small bacterium, infects amoebae. Sequence analysis of the virus revealed numerous genes previously thought to exist only in cellular organisms. Some of these genes are involved in making the proteins encoded by the viral DNA and may make it easier for Mimivirus to co-opt host cell replication systems. As the research team noted in its report in the journal Science, the enormous complexity of the Mimivirus’s genetic complement “challenges the established frontier between viruses and parasitic cellular organisms.”

Impact on Evolution 
Debates over whether to label viruses as living lead naturally to another question: Is pondering the status of viruses as living or nonliving more than a philosophical exercise, the basis of a lively and heated rhetorical debate but with little real consequence? I think the issue is important, because how scientists regard this question infl uences their thinking about the mechanisms of evolution.

Viruses have their own, ancient evolutionary history, dating to the very origin of cellular life. For example, some viral- repair enzymes—which excise and resynthesize damaged DNA, mend oxygen radical damage, and so on— are unique to certain viruses and have existed almost unchanged probably for billions of years.

Nevertheless, most evolutionary biologists hold that because viruses are not alive, they are unworthy of serious consideration when trying to understand evolution. They also look on viruses as coming from host genes that somehow escaped the host and acquired a protein coat. In this view, viruses are fugitive host genes that have degenerated into parasites. And with viruses thus dismissed from the web of life, important contributions they may have made to the origin of species and the maintenance of life may go unrecognized. (Indeed, only four of the 1,205 pages of the 2002 volume The Encyclopedia of Evolution are devoted to viruses.)

Of course, evolutionary biologists do not deny that viruses have had some role in evolution. But by viewing viruses as inanimate, these investigators place them in the same category of infl uences as, say, climate change. Such external infl uences select among individuals having varied, genetically controlled traits; those individuals most able to survive and thrive when faced with these challenges go on to reproduce most successfully and hence spread their genes to future generations.

But viruses directly exchange genetic information with living organisms—that is, within the web of life itself. A possible surprise to most physicians, and perhaps to most evolutionary biologists as well, is that most known viruses are persistent and innocuous, not pathogenic. They take up residence in cells, where they may remain dormant for long periods or take advantage of the cells’ replication apparatus to reproduce at a slow and steady rate. These viruses have developed many clever ways to avoid detection by the host immune system— essentially every step in the immune process can be altered or controlled by various genes found in one virus or another.

Furthermore, a virus genome (the entire complement of DNA or RNA) can permanently colonize its host, adding viral genes to host lineages and ultimately becoming a critical part of the host species’ genome. Viruses therefore surely have effects that are faster and more direct than those of external forces that simply select among more slowly generated, internal genetic variations. The huge population of viruses, combined with their rapid rates of replication and mutation, makes them the world’s leading source of genetic innovation: they constantly “invent” new genes. And unique genes of viral origin may travel, finding their way into other organisms and contributing to evolutionary change.

Data published by the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium indicate that somewhere between 113 and 223 genes present in bacteria and in the human genome are absent in well-studied organisms—such as the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans—that lie in between those two evolutionary extremes. Some researchers thought that these organisms, which arose after bacteria but before vertebrates, simply lost the genes in question at some point in their evolutionary history. Others suggested that these genes had been transferred directly to the human lineage by invading bacteria.

My colleague Victor DeFilippis of the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute of the Oregon Health and Science University and I suggested a third alternative: viruses may originate genes, then colonize two different lineages—for example, bacteria and vertebrates. A gene apparently bestowed on humanity by bacteria may have been given to both by a virus.

In fact, along with other researchers, Philip Bell of Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia, and I contend that the cell nucleus itself is of viral origin. The advent of the nucleus— which differentiates eukaryotes (organisms whose cells contain a true nucleus), including humans, from prokaryotes, such as bacteria—cannot be satisfactorily explained solely by the gradual adaptation of prokaryotic cells until they became eukaryotic. Rather the nucleus may have evolved from a persisting large DNA virus that made a permanent home within prokaryotes. Some support for this idea comes from sequence data showing that the gene for a DNA polymerase (a DNAcopying enzyme) in the virus called T4, which infects bacteria, is closely related to other DNA polymerase genes in both eukaryotes and the viruses that infect them. Patrick Forterre of the University of Paris-Sud has also analyzed enzymes responsible for DNA replication and has concluded that the genes for such enzymes in eukaryotes probably have a viral origin.

From single-celled organisms to human populations, viruses affect all life on earth, often determining what will survive. But viruses themselves also evolve. New viruses, such as the AIDS-causing HIV-1, may be the only biological entities that researchers can actually witness come into being, providing a real-time example of evolution in action.

Viruses matter to life. They are the constantly changing boundary between the worlds of biology and biochemistry. As we continue to unravel the genomes of more and more organisms, the contributions from this dynamic and ancient gene pool should become apparent. Nobel laureate Salvador Luria mused about the viral infl uence on evolution in 1959. “May we not feel,” he wrote, “that in the virus, in their merging with the cellular genome and reemerging from them, we observe the units and process which, in the course of evolution, have created the successful genetic patterns that underlie all living cells?” Regardless of whether or not we consider viruses to be alive, it is time to acknowledge and study them in their natural context—within the web of life.

META-Health – Inspiration zur Transformation!

Mein International META-Health Conference Report

META-Health ConferenceDieses Jahr 2014 fand die jährliche IMHC in Birmingham, Grossbritannien statt, hatte in der Journalistin Susan Osman eine prominente Moderatorin, die durch die Konfrontation mit META-Health eine persönliche Transformation erlebt hatte und eine wundervolle Kombination von geerdeter Power und spiritueller Weisheit darstellt, und ein gespicktes Programm an jedem der 5 Tage.

Über 100 Therapeuten, Ärzte, Wissenschaftler und Coaches aus aller Welt trafen sich, um Erfahrungen und Erkenntnisse auszutauschen. Es gab Vorträge, Workshops und weitergehende Ausbildung, es wurden Probesessions verschiedener Modalitäten angeboten und Neuheiten im Bereich der Befundung und Therapie vorgestellt. Daneben nimmt man sich Zeit zum Netzwerken, und Ideen werden geboren…

Als Highlights empfand ich die Anwesenheit und persönlichen Geschichten von Menschen, die ihren Weg aus “unheilbaren Krankheiten” gefunden haben, und die Einsichten über Grundpfeiler der Therapie, die sich aus diesen Wegen ableiten liessen.

frei von DiabetesSo war da der 16jährige Octavian mit seinen Coaches Dr Diana und L.J. Hunyadi. Ein Fall juveniler Diabetes, Prognose: lebenslange Abhängigkeit von Insulinspritzen. Durch ein konsequentes Protokoll, das temporäre Ernährungsumstellung auf mikronisierte grüne Rohkost genauso beinhaltet wie das Finden und Verwandeln des emotionalen Hintergrundes, und ein starkes, motivierendes Ziel vor Augen, glückte es ihm, seine Bauchspeicheldrüse zur Insulinproduktion anzuregen, so dass er – nun bei normaler Ernährung – keiner Fremdzufuhr mehr bedarf!

Da war die Inderin Anu Mehta, die ihre eigene Vergangenheit von Kindesmissbrauch verarbeiten konnte, und den ergreifenden Film “Silent Scream” und ihre Arbeit mit missbrauchten Kindern und Erwachsenen vorstellte, denen sie wieder Zugang zu Gefühlen und Mut zum Ausdruck und zum Leben vermitteln kann.

Und die Norwegerin Dagfrid Kolås, die zusammen mit ihrem Brustkrebs ihr Leben geheilt hat und mit ihrem Buch “Fra kreft til kraft / How I healed my life” Krebspatienten inspiriert und Hoffnung gibt.

Helena KujamaDa war die Finnin Helena Kujama, die mit der Diagnose MS im Rollstuhl sass, sich aber gegen die Prognose auflehnte und nach dem Urgrund ihres Zustandes forschte, den sie in einem unbewusst übernommenen Glaubenssatz ihrer Kindheit fand.

Jahre der unverzagten Selbstunterstützung und selbstbestimmten Aufbautrainings, sowie der Erkundung ihrer Spiritualität liessen sie erstarken und erblühen, so dass sie inzwischen an Heilhilfstechniken und -Erklärungsmodellen mit Farben und Zahlen forscht.

Dr KwesiMit Farben arbeitet auch der Ophtalmologe Dr Kwesi Anan Odum, genauer gesagt mit der Arbeit von Prof Max Lüscher. Die Bedeutung von Farben für den emotionalen Zustand, die Energie und körperliche Reaktionen, liess er die Hörer seines interaktiven Vortrages selbst erfahren.

Lars Mygind aus Dänemark erläuterte die physiologische Bedeutung von bestimmten Assoziationen, die die Beschaffenheit des emotional und körperlich empfundenen UDINs beschreiben, und zeigte Wege auf, diesen sich lösen zu lassen und zu heilen.

High-lightIch selbst konnte die neueste Errungenschaft der IMMA – nämlich das komplett aktualisierte, korrigierte und erweiterte Verzeichnis der Organgewebe mit ihrer Verhaltensweise, Gehirnbezug, emotionalem und sozialem Thema, sowie mit Gewebsinteraktionen und -unterscheidungen – vorstellen. Aus dem, was als “Handbuch” geplant war, ist eine praktische Applikation mit Index und Suchfunktion geworden, eine unverzichtbare Ressource für den Lernenden wie für die therapeutische Praxis.

Veranstaltern und Team ein herzliches Dankeschön für die rundum gelungene Konferenz!

Die nächste International META-Health Conference wird vom 23.-27. Oktober 2015 auf Hawaii stattfinden – ich freu mich drauf!

Da es bislang keine virtuelle Plattform gab, wo sich Interessierte mit META-Health-Professionals online in deutscher Sprache austauschen können, haben wir nun diese Lücke gefüllt.

Hier gibt´s jetzt also kostenfreie Informationen über die psycho-bio-soziale Sichtweise der META-Health, sowie über integrative Befundungs- und Therapiemöglichkeiten von akuten und chronischen “Krankheits”-Prozessen. Man kann generelle und Detailfragen stellen, derer sich die Profis der Community annehmen, man kann Kontakte knüpfen und Hangouts/Skypetreffen vereinbaren… einander nah und ´up to date´ sein auch auf die Entfernung.

Dazu können Links und Dateien mit aktuellen Forschungen und Erkenntnissen rund um die Gesundheit eingestellt und diskutiert werden, Umfragen gestellt werden, es werden aktuelle META-Health-Events und Weiterbildungsmöglichkeiten gepostet…

Es handelt sich um eine geschlossene Gruppe, das heisst, dass zwar jeder der Gruppe auf Anfrage oder Einladung beitreten kann, aber dass die Beiträge nur von Gruppenmitgliedern eingesehen werden können. Man darf sich also sicher fühlen, dass die dort geteilten Inhalte (im Rahmen der Datensicherheit im Internet im Allgemeinen) auch innerhalb der Gruppe bleiben :-)

Viel Spaß und
bleibt META-gesund!

Mikroorganismen und unsere Persönlichkeit

Im META-Evolutions-Blog habe ich schon die vielfältige und faszinierende Bedeutung von Mikroorganismen für das Leben auf der Erde dargestellt. Viele der Funktionen, die wir größeren Lebensformen oder ihren Organen zuschreiben, werden im Praktischen von Mikroorganismen ausgeübt, die sich auf den ganz speziellen Lebensraum angepasst haben und so zum effektiven Bestandteil dieser Lebensform geworden sind.

META-EvolutionBeobachten wir zum Beispiel die wasserreinigenden Eigenschaften eines Feuchtgebietes oder einer Pflanzenkläranlage, so geschieht die Filterung hier durch das Wurzelnetz der Pflanzen, die Verarbeitung der gefilterten Substanzen jedoch durch die Mikroben, die den feinen Würzelchen anhaften und deren Zulieferer für Nährstoffe sind. Man spricht von Symbiose, eigentlich handelt es sich um einen integrierten Bestandteil des Organismus. Das ist einfacher zu verstehen, wenn wir auch ein Individuum, einen Organismus, als ein Ökosystem wahrnehmen, als intelligente Kollaboration mit Puffersystemen und vielfältige Methoden der Selbststeuerung.

Jeder von uns ist so ein Ökosystem

Abgesehen von den vielen körpereigenen Einzelzellen zB in unserem Blut, sind auch unsere Organe Zusammenschlüsse von Zellen, die entsprechend der benötigten Funktion spezialisierte Mikroklimate erschaffen. Stammzellen bezeugen nach wie vor die Fähigkeit zur Diversifikation innerhalb des Organismus. Die Funktionen unseres lebendigen Körpers schließen die Beteiligung von Mikroorganismen mit ein. Deren Anzahl übersteigt die der “eigentlichen” Körperzellen um ein bis zu Hundertfaches. In und auf uns leben allein ca 2000 verschiedene Arten von Bakterien, die ca 1-3% unseres Körpergewichts ausmachen. Diese Arten sind funktionell und spezifisch für sowohl das Umfeld als auch den Menschenstamm, weshalb man anhand von mikrobiellen Untersuchungungen Rückschlüsse auf die Migration von Völkerstämmen ziehen kann. [1]

Aber da hört es nicht auf: Wissenschaftler haben inzwischen selbst die Verknüpfung von unserer Mikropopulation mit unserer Stimmungslage und Verhalten beschrieben:

Studien an Mäusen verdeutlichen, wie die Besiedelung mit spezifischen Mikrobenstämmen im Darm, im Vergleich zu ihrem Fehlen, zu unterschiedlichen Verhaltensmerkmalen führt.
MausDie Mäuse zeigen nämlich eine gewisse artspezifische Vorsicht und Bevorzugung von geschützten Aufenthaltsorten. Im Experiment wurden sie in ein Labyrinth mit teilweise geschlossenen, teilweise offenen Gängen gesetzt. Erwartungsgemäß mied die Kontrollgruppe von “normalen” Mäusen mit ihrer spezifischen Darmflora die offenen Gänge, während jedoch eine Gruppe von “entkeimten” Mäusen viel weniger Vorsicht und mehr Bereitschaft zum Entdecken zeigte. [2] [3] [4]
Eine weitere Studie zeigt, dass artspezifische Verhaltensweisen verschiedener Mäusegruppen offenbar in direktem Zusammenhang mit ihrer Mikrobenflora stehen, denn nach Entkeimung und Austausch dieser Mikrobenflora wechseln diese Eigenarten des Verhaltens! [5]

Kann man da sein Ich und seine Persönlichkeit wirklich noch von dieser Flora abgegrenzt sehen?

Unsere Mikroben – Helfer durch dick und dünn

Von der META-Health wissen wir, wie umfassend Körper, Psyche und Umfeld korrelieren. Mikroorganismen haben in der Verarbeitung von Konflikten und tramatischen Erlebnissen nicht nur auf körperlicher Ebene, sondern für den ganzheitlichen Gesamtorganismus ihre Bedeutung. Mikroben werden für Auf- und Abbauprozesse von funktionsverstärkendem Gewebe benötigt. Dazu gehören auch Prozesse, die traditionell noch als pathologisch eingeordnet werden, wie der Abbau von entodermalem Tumorgewebe durch Tuberkel- / Mykobakterien. Das ist ein natürlicher und intern gesteuerter Vorgang, der nur dann therapiebedürftig wird, wenn der Prozess durch ungünstige Bedingungen eskaliert! Denn der intelligente Organismus steuert die Aktivität seiner Mikroben über das interne Milieu, das er dynamisch verändert. Dabei ist er in der Lage, verschiedene Mikroorganismen einander begrenzen und kontrollieren zu lassen. Gesteuert wird das durch das psychobiologische Erleben und Verarbeiten von Konflikten im Ökosystem. Das bedeutet, Mikroorganismen werden vom Körper “eingefangen”, aufgenommen oder produziert, sobald ein biologisches Programm gestartet wird, das ihre Anwesenheit im späteren Stadium notwendig macht.

Von diesen intelligenten Wechselwirkungen werden durch wissenschaftliche Studien nun immer mehr erkannt und erforscht. Ein Beispiel ist die Erkenntnis von Theofilos Poutahidis et al, dass anwesende Lactobakterien des Typs Lactobacillus reuteri zu optimierter Wundheilung führen [6]. Dies geschieht über die Erhöhung des Oxytocinspiegels, eines Neuropeptidhormons in Zusammenhang mit Sozialverhalten und Reproduktion, das über den Vagusnerv vermittelt wird.
Die Einnahme des gleichen Bakteriums führte in einem weiteren Experiment von Theofilos Poutahidis et al zu erhöhter Fruchtbarkeit durch erhöhte Spermienproduktion, Hodengröße und Anzahl der vorhandenen Leydig-Zellen (der hauptsächlichen Bildungsstätte für Testosteron). Typische mit Testosteronreduktion und Entzündungsreaktionen verknüpfte Alterungsprozesse wurden im Experiment durch Versorgung mit Lactobacillus reuteri gestoppt und sogar rückgängig gemacht. [7]

Probiotics, unser Mikrobenprofil und Programmierungen

LactobacillusDie Dissertationsarbeit von Gabriela Sinkiewicz von der Universität Malmö “Lactobacillus Reuteri in Health and Disease” beschäftigt sich mit dem natürlichen Vorkommen dieses Bakteriums in der menschlichen Muttermilch, Speichel und Darm sowie mit dessen Einfluss auf die Gesundheit. Erwartungsgemäß tritt dieses Bakterium nicht bei allen Menschen natürlich auf, sondern bei ca 15%, bei Landbevölkerung häufiger als bei Stadtbewohnern. Dies mag auf langfristige Ernährungsgewohnheiten zurückzuführen sein. Während die regelmäßige Einnahme von Lactobacillus Reuteri in der Studie (durch Kauen von infiziertem Kaugummi) positive Effekte auf vorliegende Zahnfleischentzündung zeigte, wurde aber keine langfristige Änderung in Mund- und Darmflora der Probanden festgestellt. [8]

Wie kann man diese Testergebnisse interpretieren?
Offensichtlich kommt es für die Assimilation des entsprechenden Bakteriums sowohl auf das Vorkommen im Ökosystem/Lebensumfeld der Probanden an, als auch auf deren Aufnahmebereitschaft! Diese hängt sowohl von Bekanntschaftsfaktoren und Gewöhnung ab (Ernährungsgewohnheiten), als auch von den oben besprochenen Bedürfnissen innerhalb autonom ablaufender Prozesse der Selbsterhaltung.

Studien haben auch gezeigt, dass die Darmflora von Patienten mit Chronischem Müdigkeitssyndrom (CFS) üblichgerweise einen geringen Spiegel von Bifidobakterien aufweist, und dass, nach 2monatiger Gabe von koloniebildenden Lacto- und Bifidobakterien, sich die Darmflora regenerierte sowie die Angstreaktionen im Test signifikant abnahmen. [9] Diese Ergebnisse deuten darauf hin, dass bei dieser Art Reaktionsmuster (CFS ist kein eindeutiges Krankheitsbild, sondern eine Ansammlung mehr oder weniger typischer Symptome) der Körper aufnahmebereit für die Bakterien ist, soweit sie ihm angeboten werden. Hier sind die typischen Symptome, von denen für eine CFS-Diagnose mindestens 4 zutreffen müssen:

  • Einschränkungen des Kurzzeitgedächtnisses oder der Konzentration
  • Halsschmerzen,
  • empfindliche Hals- und Achsellymphknoten,
  • Muskelschmerzen,
  • Schmerzen mehrerer Gelenke ohne Schwellung und Rötung,
  • Kopfschmerzen eines neuen Typs, Musters oder Schweregrades,
  • keine ausreichende Erholung durch Schlaf,
  • Zustandsverschlechterung für mehr als 24 Stunden nach Anstrengungen.

Diese Symptome sind ohne Ausnahme als Bestandteile von gestörten und daher rezidivierenden Regenerationsphasen zu identifizieren.

Regeneration erfordert hochwertige Nährstoffe, die durch die Darmflora aufgeschlüsselt werden. Daher ist der betroffene Organismus rezeptiv für geeignete Bakterien, wenn sie ihm angeboten werden. Der Zusammenhang von CFS mit Ängsten mag einen Schlüssel für das vorliegende Rezidivmuster darstellen: ein denkbares Szenario wären wiederkehrende Selbstwertkonflikte zB im Arbeitsmilieu, die sich auf Muskeln und Gelenke auswirken. Im täglichen Leben werden diese gelöst oder sublimiert, aber die Angst um den Arbeitsplatz oder die Familie lässt es nicht zu, sich den notwendigen Regenerationsphasen hinzugeben. Dieses Muster lässt sich also möglicherweise durch ein optimiertes Nahrungsangebot inklusive Laktobakterien verändern.

Dagegen verwundert die Wissenschaftler die Erkenntnis, dass gerade eine gesunde Darmflora an Erkrankungen wie der Multiplen Sklerose beteiligt zu sein scheint [10]. Das Verständnis der META-Health, das Krankheit und die Aktivität von Mikroben grundsätzlich als einen biologisch sinnvollen und vom intelligenten Organismus selbstgesteuerten Prozess sieht, bietet hier eine Erklärung an: sogenannte Autoimmunerkrankungen sind biologische Konfliktrezidivmuster, die Strategien beinhalten, den Organismus vor potentiellen Bedrohungen zu warnen und ihn zu wappnen. Das Programm im Gehirn (Im Versuch entsprechend die genetische Veränderung) veranlasst diese Strategie und bedient sich der gesunden Ausrüstung – der Darmflora – als Vermittler von Signalen. Die Lösung für Betroffene liegt also in der Veränderung der Programmierung im Gehirn und damit der Erhöhung ihrer Resilienz.

Kommunikation zwischen Psyche, Gehirn und Organ

Wie und wann geschieht nun natürlicherweise diese Besiedelung mit unseren spezifischen Mikroben, und welche Bedeutung hat diese für unsere Ausstattung mit Ressourcen und Resilienz? Untersuchungen von Maikäferdärmen im sterilen Larven- wie im Erwachsenenstadium legen nahe, dass ein Teil der Mikroflora tatsächlich schon im Frühstadium vorhanden ist [10]. Die vorwiegende Besiedelung geschieht bei und nach der Geburt, und ist nachhaltig [11]. Gemeinsam mit der Darmbesiedelung prägen sich das zentrale Nervensystem und das neuroendokrine System aus, die empfänglich für Distresserlebnisse sind [12]. Der Vagusnerv wurde als Kommunikationsweg der Darm-Gehirn-Achse in beide Richtungen identifiziert [13]. Die Ergebnisse dieser Studien belegen das in der META-Health bekannte Zusammenwirken von Gehirn, prägendem Erleben, Organfunktion und Mikroben sowie dem vegetativen Nervensystem als Vermittler zwischen diesen.

Die Übersicht zeigt, dass emotionale – und Verhaltensmuster sowie Resilienz durchaus in Zusammenhang mit unserer individuellen Mikrobenflora zu sehen sind. Deren Grundausstattung wird vorgeburtlich durch den mütterlichen Organismus, dann mit der Muttermilch und mit den Erstkontakten während der Entwicklungs- und Prägungsphase von Darmflora, Nervensystem und Gehirn geliefert. Zu späteren Zeitpunkten braucht eine langfristige natürliche Veränderung dieses Anteils unserer Persönlichkeit längere Zeit und Gewohnheit, ist aber möglich. Konsequente Gaben von Probiotika können gezielt eingesetzt werden, um Verarbeitungsprozesse im Verdauungstrakt temporär zu unterstützen, und um Stress- und Angstreaktionen über die Darm-Vagus-Gehirnachse zu dämmen.

Analog verhält es sich erfahrungsgemäß mit Distresserleben und Konfliktmustern der Mutter und des frühen oder langwährigen sozialen Umfelds, die vom Kind – zusammen mit den zur Bearbeitung relevanten Bakterien- aufgenommen werden. Im Hintergrund aktuell erlebter Konflikte und entsprechender organischer Symptomatik stehen in einer überwiegenden Anzahl der Fälle Erlebnis- und Reaktionsmuster aus der frühen Kindheit, sowie übernommene Muster der Eltern. Durch erwünschte und geeignete Intervention auf ganzheitlicher Ebene können diese Muster korrigiert und ergänzt werden – von der neuralen Ebene über die Gehirn-Organ-Achse auf die das Erlebensmuster begleitende Organsymptomatik. Die Mikroben haben in jedem Heilungsprozess ihre Funktion.

A Nurse Looks at Meta-Health-Back Pain and Yoga

This blog will concern back pain and research upon the effectiveness of Yoga as an nursing papers intervention that made meaningful changes as opposed to traditional care with medication. Back pain affects many people and costs a great deal of money to treat usually without relief from the pain and limitations back pain imposes. Often back pain is viewed as a condition from which there is no meaningful recovery.

The study I am citing looks at back pain utilizing Yoga as an intervention that produced measurable and meaningful change and recovery from pain and a return of physical function. Popping a pill for pain temporarily relieves the pain but doesn’t change the condition.

Yoga relieves the pain and does much more-changing the condition and lifestyle. That is a pretty impressive statement and I would not have made it without this study. Complementary and alternative medicine are rapidly gaining a place in allopathic medicine. This is an exciting development as it means that chronic conditions can be treated effectively without the exclusive use of pharmaceuticals. I hope you find this study as exciting as I did and give Yoga a try to relieve pain or stress.

A Nurse Looks at Meta-Health-Diabetes Stress and Yoga

Effect of 3-Month Yoga on Oxidative Stress in Type 2 Diabetes With or Without Complications

Hello again, in this post I will look at stress and Type 2 Diabetes and the effects of stress upon the body when Diabetes is present.

Stress can do many things in Diabetes, however two of the most prominent effects are to raise the blood sugar levels and to increase insulin resistance. Insulin resistance is what occurs when there is adequate insulin and even higher amounts of insulin and the blood sugar is not metabolized. The blood sugar levels increase despite taking insulin or oral medication for diabetes management.

This can prove to be quite a problem as the blood sugar levels rise despite more medication or higher doses of insulin or different types of insulin. Until recently the role stress plays in illness was not a primary consideration.

Now the school of thought regarding illness, stress, and trauma have changed a great deal.

Trauma and stress are the precursors to ilness and once an illness has appeared stress can exacerbate the severity and eventual outcome of the illness. This is very easily seen in Diabetes. Many in my own family suffer from the disease. They are advised by physicians to take insulin and modify their diet however the disease persists and worsens. When I was a young nursing student I was told that three things could change the progress of Diabetes-a sort of triangle and when you changed one you affected the others. The first was diet, then medication, and lastly physical activity. Now we realize the role that stress and physical activity play-especially an activity that includes mindfulness. When stress and trauma are addressed in a meditative or relaxed state the body responds in a much more meaningful way. In the study I have attached Yoga is the activity that is used. Traditional medicine is now looking at the role alternative and complementary therapies play in the progression of illness. It is my hope that these studies show the efficacy and importance of complementary and alternative measures. I hope you enjoy the study and try a new method of resolving illness and reducing stress.
