Releasing the Lion: Rediscovering the Right Brain Heart
by Larry Napier
An AMAZING and very important book about the heart(spiritual), key to holistic understanding and living, authored by the longtime mentor of Dr Alex Loyd.---he recommends this book over and above even his own The Healing Code book. This book addresses the 'root,' and The Healing Codes are the 'branches'/tools with which to connect to affect change holistically.
The Healing Code
By Alex Loyd PhD, ND and Ben Johnson, MD, DO, NMD
The premise of the book is that all disease stems from physiological stress. If you feel stress, you can be assured that your body is experiencing physiological stress; however, even if you do not feel anxious or stressed, it's still likely that your body is under physiological stress.
So what does this all mean? Well, for starters, when you are under physiologic stress, your body is in survival mode (aka "fight or flight"). This involves activating your sympathetic nervous system which raises blood pressure, increases heart rate, stresses your adrenal glands, and overrides the parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for digestion and for maintenance and repair of the body.
Instead of your body worrying about cancer cell over here, and virus over there, and digesting the food in your stomach, it's worried about surviving the next few minutes. This means that people with chronic stress are bound to have digestive issues and are adversely affecting their body's ability to heal itself.
The author of The Healing Code, Dr Alex Loyd, spent years trying to help his wife recover from depression. He even went back to school to get a PhD in Psychology to try to figure things out for her. One day, while flying home from a conference, he tells how this information appeared to him, and he knew how to help his wife when he returned home to her. He performed what he now calls the healing code with his wife and apparently she's been great ever since. The co-author of the book, Ben Johnson, MD, DO, NMD, was diagnosed with ALS (a typically fatal auto-immune disease affecting the nervous system) and, knowing his fate, was seeking out alternatives when he came across the healing code. He began a diligent regimen of the healing code and reports that he cured his illness in 3 months.
In the book it's explained how we accumulate memories, both good and bad, and that the bad memories can be constantly reactivated, even at a subconscious level, keeping you in a state of physiologic stress. Let's say, for example, that you were in a terrible car accident 15 years ago with a red car. Ever since then, every time you see the color red, it may be causing you stress, whether you feel it (e.g. a random panic attack) or not (e.g. chronic high blood pressure or digestive issues without obvious cause).
The goal of this book is to teach you how to neutralize your body's physiological stress response (the hypothalamus's 911 signal to your cells) with a simple 6 minute exercise done 1-3 times daily which in turn dampens the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, helping to lower blood pressure and heart rate, and allow the parasympathetic nervous system to take over again, thereby improving digestion and allowing the body to heal itself.
Think Sympathetic (=STRESS) and Parasympathetic (=PEACE).
