The Ultimate Cause Of All Illness

The Ultimate Cause Of All Illness

Rotten On The Inside

In Stress Is The Cause Of All Illness I made the case for stress being… yes you guessed it… the cause of all illness. But, whilst this statement is true, it still doesn’t tell the whole story. It’s actually our childhood stress and historic stress which predisposes us to getting ill, in later years, when we are exposed to a new and different set of stressors.

In this article I explain how and why this is happening…

The True Cause Of Illness

This article is partly based on the insights of Niki Gratrix, a UK progressive in the field of the psychological causation of physical health, who is helping to push the boundary of understanding on this topic, way beyond the currently accepted view within Western Medicine. It outlines how our emotional stressors lay the foundation for our physical stressors to gain a stronghold, and illustrates the inevitability of these emotional stressors making us sick further down the line.

It explicitly explains how grievous emotional stress, especially in early childhood, has the ability to set us up for seriously poor health in our adult years, and how this has the ability to not only profoundly diminish the quality of our lives, but also cut them dramatically short.

The work of Dr Kelly Brogan and Dr Mark Hyman in the USA, is also of great importance where this subject is concerned.

The Future Is Here

Whilst the subject matter of this article makes for slightly challenging reading, there’s no denying an amazing breakthrough is being made, which will change the course of medicine forever.

It’s very exciting. We are on the precipice of a massive shift in understanding within mainstream medicinal circles. There is scientific evidence coming through to support all of the energy medicine modalities, ancient and new, which, when translated into the development of devices to treat conditions electromagnetically, we will see major advances in the genuine and lasting treatment of illness.

I have received a bioresonance session, in which a bioresonance instrument was used to not only diagnose, but also recalibrate my body. I believe these instruments are nothing short of a miracle.

But, in this world of duality, there’s always a flip side to that which is healthy and healing! Alternatively, we have energetic frequencies which are harming us. The most harmful of these are the synthetic electromagnetic fields, aka EMF’s, generated by wireless technologies which interfere with our ability to absorb the necessary natural EMF’s from the sun etc. This is why there a lot of articles on the Wild As The Wind website warning people of the dangers of wireless technologies. It is also reputed Tesla regretted inventing the AC current when he realised how deleterious it is for living beings.

We are almost there!

It is certainly very clear now, amongst ever-increasing circles, that emotional healing is the key to elicit physical healing. To cure the physical we have to address the issues of the metaphysical!

Emotional Trauma

Emotional trauma, and the mind body connection, has a profound impact on our biochemistry, our neurology and our energy field. Because emotional trauma impacts us in such a multifaceted and profound way it is obviously a critical factor as to whether we are able to recover from illnesses of all kinds.

And, it is clear we need a multi-factorial approach to getting well.

Our emotional history is the missing link in the exceptionally confusing world of unexplained pathology within medicine. It is likely the key cause behind why people, who receive the same medical attention, have such different outcomes. Some will get well and flourish, others will languish and fade.

It also explains why some people can work in leper colonies and never fall ill themselves, and why some medicinal practitioners who perform daily surgeries seem invincible where others fall victim to every single bug doing the rounds.

Emotional Trauma As A Root Cause Of Illness

Emotional trauma potentially prevents us from healing from our injuries, and other health issues, and it can actually predispose us to developing health issues in the first place. Emotional trauma not only scars us psychologically, it actually changes our biochemistry.

PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder,  is only one form of emotional trauma we can experience which will undermine our health. PTSD is a big ‘T’ trauma, like car accidents, or witnessing something horrendous, especially for prolonged periods of time, like children having to survive broad scale environments which are generally affecting large numbers of people, such as the horrors inflicted on many within war torn countries, or the children who have to face famine in places like Ethiopia etc.

Head Trauma

Physical traumas also result in the same inflammation based, neurodegenerative, autoimmune disorders as emotional trauma.

So, whilst head trauma is a leading cause of behavioural and mental health issues, it can also cause chronic systemic inflammation.

It can even prompt alterations in our gene expression, setting us up for all kinds of physical and mental health issues, either immediately, or later down the line.

Neurological Disorders are, of course, also very common.1

It only takes a single head trauma to cause chronic systemic inflammation.2

Once inflammation has been established by trauma it is often compounded by our modern Western diet, with it’s pro-inflammatory staples like grains and sugar. People who seek all manner of therapies to address their trauma often get stuck until they minimally remove sugar and gluten out of their lives.

Read Gut Health for more information.

Plus there are all of the pro-inflammatory environmental toxins we need to remove from our environment in order to get better.

The incidence of Alzheimer’s has increased by over 400% between 2013 and 2017.

Alzheimer’s is an inflammatory autoimmune condition, just like Parkinson’s and Dementia etc.

Dementia was the fifth leading cause of death globally, accounting for 2·4 million deaths in 2016.3

Developmental Trauma

However, most trauma is a lot less conspicuous… It happens in childhood, often at a young age, and is inflicted at a personal level. It is, therefore, almost always a source of trauma from relational or specific social conditions. This means it is trauma experienced in relation to our key care givers, such as our parents, as well as, in some cases, with authority figures.

Developmental Trauma is trauma that has occurred before the age of eighteen.

Consequences Of Developmental Trauma

Research has revealed that if someone has experienced Developmental Trauma they are much more likely to go on and develop PTSD if the circumstances are there for that to potentially occur in adulthood.

Developmental Trauma Is State Of The Art Thinking

The concept of developmental trauma is very much part of the avant-garde of ‘new science’ which is presently prevailing within certain spheres of medical research. It is, therefore, all very new, and hasn’t filtered down into Western medical practice… yet!

The insights being obtained are at an early stage, and will be embellished with future insights over time.

However, I would contend it’s not just developmental trauma, or our other forms of emotional trauma, within this life, which plague our psyches, and cause us mental, emotional and physical problems. I believe we need to also include the developmental trauma and other traumas experienced in past lives which also possess the ability to undermine our health in this one.

This requires a bit of a quantum leap in thinking if we are to be able to truly comprehend what this actually means. Essentially, my understanding of how this works is that we keep on ‘coming back’ until we get it right! Ergo, we will continue to reincarnate on planet earth, or one like it, until we have gained the spiritual awakening we are fundamentally hardwired to pursue / achieve. We will, therefore, reincarnate until we get round to seeking the truth of our existence and that of our Divine origins.

As a very hard-boiled atheist in my early twenties, having rejected Christianity wholesale, I can utterly relate to anyone who has had an extreme reaction to the above paragraph. But, I urge you to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater, and continue reading the rest of this article. It is invested with hard statistical facts and really does elucidate the way in which medicine is heading… it may even be the key to your release from physical pain and long-term illness… who knows…?

Perhaps the work of Barbara Hand Clow will be more palatable to those who reject the past life hypothesis? Barbara Hand Clow postulates that the trauma of our ancestors are carried forward through subsequent generations. In her fascinating book, Catastrophobia, she explains how man and womankind have been effectively pre-programmed to expect Armageddon, because we have the memory of a meteorite hitting planet earth 10,000 years ago, within our energetic DNA. This is the meteorite which made the dinosaurs go extinct and plunged us into an ice age within which many of our forefathers perished.

But how does that work…? How can our energy field carry such ancient coding forward…?

The Information Is In Our Energy Field

The way trauma gets stored within the body is within the energy field. Western medicine has so far discovered the six strands of physical DNA, but it is yet to discover the six strands of energetic DNA which accompany it.

The appreciation of our Auric Field, the energy field surrounding our bodies, has become a lot more accepted since the Western world has been more willing to embrace Eastern practices and ideas, like Yoga, Tai Chi and Meditation amongst other stress busting practices etc…

We now have many books available in English which discus Auras and our Chakras, or Energy Meridians within the body…

This coupled with major advances in Physics and Biochemistry means that Westerners, as a whole, are much more open to the ideas of having an energetic body as well as a physical one.

Emotional Neglect

Developmental trauma is not all about what is inflicted upon us as children. Emotional neglect is just as damaging as emotional abuse.

Children need very clear-cut inputs to develop properly. Infants need to be held, spoken to and cherished in order for their brains to form as they should.

Tragically, the brains of children who are neglected don’t develop fully, leaving them less able to cope with life’s vicissitudes in later years. For example, an emotionally neglected child will grow up unable to produce enough Dopamine, the neurotransmitter which fuels desire. Without desire, or the concept of some kind of reward for our actions, we will not even get out of bed in the morning…

So, this kind of neglect will often lead to depression in later years, and very often to drug addiction… with sufferers trying desperately to self-medicate themselves out of their emotional pain… Gabor Maté does a valiant job of fully explaining this in his book In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts.

It Will Only Affect Other People

***If you think this article relates only to other, less fortunate, people than yourself, then I challenge you to give up drinking tea and coffee for a month, as well as sugar and processed carbs… and add to that a zero consumption of alcohol for a month as well… the SAME month, of course, and see how you get on with that!

When you fail, pat yourself on the back, pick yourself up, and welcome yourself to the human race! There are very few of us who are able to get through a day without some kind of self-medication strategy to keep us going, let alone a month. I very consciously got up this morning and made a big pot of coffee so I could finish this article!

The Adverse Childhood Events Study

The Adverse Childhood Events Study, conducted in the 1990’s, included over 17.5 thousand adult subjects, who were all surveyed using the same questionnaire.

Questions like these were asked:

  • Did your parents separate when you were a child?
  • Did you suffer physical, emotional or sexual abuse?
  • Did you suffer physical, emotional neglect?
  • Was there mental illness in the family?
  • Was there substance abuse in the family?

Adverse Childhood Events or ACE’s are what predispose us to developing PTSD and other mental health issues in later life. They also predispose us to developing physical and life-threatening conditions…

67% of all those surveyed reported they suffered from Adverse Childhood Events. But, because the responses to the questionnaire rely on a willingness of participants to be honest around subjects which elicit shame, or can be so painful we self-preserve by forgetting they even happened, the 67% of participants who scored ACE’s within the test is considered to be a significant underestimation of the true figure.

However, there’s no underestimation of the impact of ACE’s on those who have suffered them…

If someone has a high level of ACE’s they have a dramatic increase in developing 7 of the 10 top causes of death.

The correlations are thus…

  • 2  ACE’s will result in a 100% increased chance of developing autoimmunity in later life.
  • 4 ACE’s will result in a 400% increase in developing depression, Alzheimer’s, dementia, and all other neuro-degenerative disorders.
  • 6 ACE’s  will result in a 20 year reduction in life span.
  • 8 ACE’s will result in a 300% increase in developing lung cancer and 350% of suffering from heart disease. Lung cancer and heart disease are the two biggest killers in the West.

A high level of ACE’s will result in a 600% increase in developing CFS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

How Do Developmental Emotional Stressors Work?

When we are very young we are eminently impressionable and thus the stresses we are exposed to will set us up for how we cope with stress in later life.

Emotional trauma leads to the festering of toxic emotions which often ultimately lead to a chronic state of a lack of self love. The victim becomes the accuser.

Old scripts from abusive care givers become the self imposed abuse we rerun in our head, but as though we are the originators. Neglect creates it’s own corrosive inner-dialogue, of ‘I’m not good enough’… ‘no-one can love me’… ‘I was born to fail’… ‘I am nothing’… ‘I don’t deserve…’

Nothing can heal permanently in a state of diminished self love, no matter how invasive the surgery… Conditions will reappear because the blueprint for ill-health is in our etheric DNA… i.e the recurrence of cancer elsewhere in the body if the original cancer is removed.

Persistent thought forms program our energy field, permanently undermining it’s protective abilities. Ill health creeps in through the cracks!

Somewhat ironically, we cannot escape our energetic imprinting but we CAN escape 95% of our genetic imprinting by adopting healthy dietary habits and making healthy experiential choices for ourselves.

Corrosive Inputs Cause Gene Expression

Our negative self-speak is devoutly destructive and triggers our epigenetic blueprint to really kick in. Our depressed state of being, created by the abusive inner-dialogue, will turn vitally important enzymes off and turn on genes that will lead to chronic conditions which we have a genetic predisposition towards.

But, they don’t have to! If we change our emotional state of being and raise our energy vibration, before any of this happens, we can avoid all manner of malaise, and create all manner of amazing health states, regardless of previous inputs and genetic preconditioning!

The Body Is An Amazing Self-Healing System

Our bodies are designed to self heal. Just watch what happens to a child’s scrapped knee. It is nothing short of miraculous!!

Maintaining a state of Homeostasis within the body is a outright miracle, within itself!

Sadly, emotional dissonance and trauma re-imprints the energy body, and over time this exerts sufficient influence on the physical body that it somehow forgets how to replicate itself in a perfectly healthy way. This is why illness occurs.

Other negatively charged influencers include environmental toxins, heavy metals and toxic food etc. These have a degrading influence on the health of a body also, but will much more likely gain a stronghold where we are weakened by emotional trauma within our energy fields.

Essential Oils work energetically to rectify energy imbalances, but there are other ways of remedying energetic disturbances.

Homoeopathy is probably the most broadly recognised form of energy medicine, but Bach Flower Remedies are also pretty well known. (The latter are now made in such a way that they don’t carry much of an energetic charge. International Flower Essences, as mentioned at more length in Stress :: Quick Fix, are a lot more potent.)

***I list the ‘talking therapies’ later in this article.

NEs Infoceuticals are a relative newcomer to the energy medicine field.

Rationalism Versus Emotionalism

We live in a world which places rational abilities way above emotional wellbeing. This has to change. We can’t keep on neglecting our emotional wellbeing and expecting everything to turn out okay.

Just look at the addiction stats.

Just look at the out-of-control use of anti-depressants… which don’t work!

And, just look at the rocketing incidence of neuro-degenerative conditions…

These are all a result of our failures to give the correct importance to what really matters in life.

Big Pharma Profits From Failing To Heal Us

In some ways we are moving, as a society, further away from our profound needs and desires, in preference for providing those, who would exploit our malaise in order to prosper, the means to do so. Greed is skewing the game!!!

Big Pharma profits have soared whilst health stats reflect a less impressive picture! The banks make exorbitant gains from getting it all as equally wrong, and we continue to suffer…

In a recent article, the very brilliant Paul Mason describes how the idea of ‘Shock Doctrine’ ’ is being applied to the British public in post-Brexit, pre-deal Britain :: Chaos Is Being Normalised

Abusive levels of stress and uncertainty are being inflicted on the UK population to engineer a political outcome which allows the elite to profit some more from the proletariat. That’s you and me folks!

And, whilst I digress a little to make a point, may I just add the using of tax payer money for the repatriation of British holiday makers, is not the mark of a fair and just government… it is actually yet another egregious symptom of the cronyism we are all shackled to. The insurance companies should have paid for everyone to come back to the UK from their bankrupted Thomas Cook holidays, and NOT you and me!

Super-rich Conservative MP’s and their non-governmental super-rich mates are all out for rigging the system to get everything they can from everyone else! That includes the underwriters of Thomas Cook!

**The Shock Doctrine is a very disquieting book by the very brilliant Naomi Klein.

Stress Breeds Stress

Essentially, early life stress, whether it comes from neglect, or abusive care givers, has a profound effect on the entire biochemistry of the body. This is how and why it can entirely change the epigenetic expression of our gnome.

Glucocorticoid expression in the brain is impacted adversely by ACE exposures, which ultimately means we need much less of a stressor to have a stress response. This is because we are marinating in higher levels of inflammation, Cortisol, and Cytokines etc, from the date the trauma started…

The more trauma in childhood the more wired we become for the stress response and the more easily triggered our stress response is. So, the more compromised we become systemically, which means we are more susceptible to infection and the more compromised we are hormonally.

Effectively, we are fundamentally emotionally compromised, and the whole thing becomes a horrible vicious circle, until the health risks we face become potentially fatal, such as Cancer or Heart Disease etc, as mentioned above…


Psycho-Neuro-Immunology, the study of the interaction between psychological processes and the nervous and immune systems of the body, coupled with the Endocrine System… which essentially distils into the understanding that, depending on how stressed or unsafe the nervous system is perceiving we are, our immunology responds accordingly. So, when we are in a chronic state of stress we suppress the immune system and become more prone to infection and disease. It also increases inflammation, which, as we know, is the precursor to every fatal disease there is.

Chronic stress also triggers the CDR, Cell Danger Response. Stress even switches off our Mitochondria, (the energy engines within our cells), so we become fatigued and aren’t able to detox properly… The cell membranes also get thicker and less responsive, which is actually a self-preservation response due to the extreme levels of stress. To maintain normal levels of sensitivity would be agony.

The reason why we become more wired for stress in future is because of neural plasticity, which means, with high levels of exposure to stress, we build new neural pathways that hardwire us for stress in the future.

***These four supplements can really help turn things around:

-> Protecting DNA with Rosemary Essential Oil prevents apoptosis of Mitochondrial cells. Alternatively, you can use Thieves Oil 2020 For Hormone & EMF Detox on your Vagus Nerve points, as this has Rosemary Essential Oil in it.
-> Improve your natural Mitochondrial DNA defences with CoQ10
-> Create new Mitochondria with PQQ :: Parsley, eggs, papaya, green peppers, kiwi fruit and certain teas, including Oolong and Green Tea are good sources of PQQ
-> Support the body’s Mitochondrial defence system with Shilajit aka Fulvic Minerals
***Restoring and protecting Mitochondrial function is essential for avoiding Neuro Degenerative Diseases.

****When supplementing with minerals it is important to use a binder to neutralise the heavy metals the body will release when it is supplied with the right minerals. Sadly, in it’s desperation, a body will latch onto highly toxic heavy metals if we don’t have enough minerals in our diet. Most of us don’t have enough minerals in our diet.

Fruit pectins from Grapefruits and Apples are a great binder. DON’T use activated charcoal, however, as this binds to everything, including the minerals we so need… fruit pectins only neutralise the bad guys.

The following important video features Dr. Ewer who is very easy listening…

I love that she raises awareness around the toxicity of Methotrexate in this video also.

Where Are All The Memories Stored?

So, where are the memories stored precisely? Well, they are stored in our neurology if Western Medicine is to be believed. And, by this they mean within our physical neurons…

But, the latest line of thinking within Western research is that they are stored in the electric body, or the electromagnetic field of all the neurons firing together in the brain.

I perceive the Eastern view to not only be a lot more elegant, but it is, of course, a lot better established. The idea of the Aura, or energy field around the entire body, is central to the practice of Eastern Medicinal Systems as well as Eastern Religions.

It is this etheric body of the whole body, or our energy body, which contains the trauma memories. It’s effectively our etheric hard drive!

Interestingly, the energy body also remembers physical cuts obtained in physical surgeries and accidents. When the body is cut the energy body is also cut. And, whilst the physical body heals, the energy body doesn’t. We need a different set of energetic instruments to heal the energy body!

The human body is a self-contained organism with everything it needs to thrive existing within it. Any intrusion into this sealed environment, such as the incision for an operation, upsets the body’s natural processes and leaves residual trauma from the “injury” behind. The result is a scar that not only holds the negative energetic memory of the event, but also acts as a barrier that prevents the natural flow of the body’s energy from going beyond or through that point. The effect is an accumulation or stagnation of energy that often results in new physical problems cropping up in the same general area of the body. This happens because scar tissue disrupts the pathways along which our life energy or Qi flows, called meridians. These invisible pathways run throughout the body, penetrating every cell, organ, and system, vitalizing them with the life essence they need to function optimally. The source of this energy is the earth. It enters the body through the bottom of the left foot, travels along each meridian and returns to the earth by exiting through the bottom of the right foot.

The Implications of Scar Tissue & Blocked Meridians


The Vagus Nerve

To cure all of these bodily imbalances the Vagus Nerve is invaluable.

It is believed that 90% of all of our health conditions start with the Vagus Nerve, either through an imbalance, but more often than not, due to viral or bacterial infections.

The use of vagal stimulation to halt supraventricular tachycardia (fast heart beat) is a standard medical therapy. Two methods of vagal stimulation, the Valsalva maneuver and carotid sinus massage, have been used in urgent situations.

However, there is a very minor risk of causing more harm than good in tachicardic cases where a slow heart beat is registering, aka Bradycardia. Our heartbeat is regulated by the nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for accelerating the heart while the parasympathetic nervous system has the function of slowing it down. The Vagus Nerve governs the parasympathetic nervous system and so it slows the heart rate down. Thus, in people with extreme and prolonged Bradycardia, Vagal stimulation has very occasionally resulted in cardiac arrest but only in very extreme cases.

Learn how to heal Vagus Nerve infections using Thieves Oil 2020 For Hormone & EMF Detox a Wild As The Wind proprietary blend of essential oils, which are incredibly effective at dealing with systemic viral and bacterial infections. Also Thieves Oil 2020 will cure Vagus Nerve infections, but you can use the residue of you facial oil after applying it to your face for massaging the Vagus Nerve.

We also need to start simulating the right part of the Vagus Nerve to begin rebalancing the brain and nervous system. I recommend gently rubbing behind the ears to do this.

Releasing Trauma From Our Energy Filed

We also need to release the trauma memory from the energy field.

EMDR is invaluable for the latter.

Emotional Freedom Technique, and Mental Field Technique etc are other therapies which take away trauma, but they don’t deal with the energetic imprinting within the Auric field… However, Niki Gratrix practices something called Matrix Re-imprinting which does rewire our energy body to reflect an improved, more positive energetic expression…

Matrix Re-imprinting is something that Niki Gratrix practices at her London clinic. After the trauma has been released by any of the processes mentioned above, the story / script can be rewritten by reimaging outcomes for the stressful experiences we’ve had. This is especially useful where chronic abuse in childhood is concerned. Re-imagining the situation allows for the empowerment of the victim, so that they cease to actually be a victim.

It’s never too late for a happy childhood!

Niki Gratrix

This means that old energetic wounds and impressions, which would invite abusive situations towards us, which would directly reflect the previously abusive experiences we’ve had, would be replaced with more positive energetic conditioning, thereby inviting much more positive experiences and outcomes in our lives.

Energy Medicines Which Really Work…

Acupuncture and other traditional energy medicines are also very useful for healing trauma.

Homoeopathy is brilliant for energetic reprogramming.

Water stores memory. This is how Homeopathy and Infoceuticals work…

Interestingly, Ayahuasca Shamans say that it’s the purging of the water through vomiting, peeing and diarrhoea which releases the stored emotions which allows people to feel emotionally different after experiencing Ayahuasca Ceremonies.


Where Are We Now?

It’s clear that Western medicine has a long way to go where emotional healing is concerned, especially with regards the understanding that physical healing cannot take place, or remain a permanent state of affairs, without profound emotional healing taking place as well.

What is, however, interesting about all of these new Western revelations in scientific discovery is that it is now clear our brains are working wirelessly. A recent experiment where a neuron was cut in half showed that the communication between the two halves did not stop!

Flower Essences

Most people have heard of Rescue Remedy. It’s the most well known flower essence within the Bach Flower Essence energy medicine range which helps with shocking events. However, there are 48 remedies in total, all of which can help with emotional stress, such as worry, anxiety and depression.

****Caveat ::  The widely available Bach Flower Remedies are not made in the way which was intended, and consequently they are not energetically potent. Alternatively, the International Flower Essences, which are made exactly as instructed by Dr. Bach, who developed these energetic healing medicines, are a lot more energetically potent, and therefore a lot more healing.


Infoceuticals are another way in which water is imprinted with energetic healing information… It is how Harry Massey healed his CFS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequencies

Pulsed electromagnetic frequencies which is reversing treatment resistant depression etc…

PoNS devices also stimulate healing changes in the electrical biofield.

Ultimate Light Healing

In the UK we don’t get enough healing sunlight for 6 months of the year, between the months of October and April. The sun is simply too low in the sky, and therefore too far away, for us to receive the healing benefits of sunlight needed for us to be well.

Red light heals all aspects of the body. Listen to the video interview below for more information.

Red light therapy in the form of both near and far infrared therapy will be available on the Italian mountain retreats I hope to be offering as early as March 2020.

How Can We Help Ourselves For Free?

The Vagus Nerve is the nerve of compassion and social connection… it’s the parasympathic side of the autonomic nervous system and it is vitally important for de-stressing us.

The Ventral Vagus Nerve is the rest, digest and detox side of the Vagus Nerve… Studies have shown that 8 weeks of intensive Vagus Nerve electrical stimulation has cured severe autoimmunity.

*Autoimmune conditions cause inflammation and pain. Learn more here:

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome Essential Oils

The Vagus Nerve is the switch which turns off inflammation. It also heals the gut by ensuring intestinal tight junctions are nice and tight. A high Vagal tone is synonymous with being in a highly uplifted emotional state. So, gratitude practices and loving kindness journalings increases the Vagal tone, which means the Vagus Nerve is more stimulated.

Anything which raises heart rate variability, HRV, and Vagal tone, such as meditation, deep breathing, Tai Chi, Yoga, Intermittent fasting etc, is profoundly healing energetically.

The reason why stress causes so much systemic harm is because it adversely impacts our gut health.

Gut issues are at the root of all autoimmune conditions:

The Root of Autoimmune Disease can be Found in the Gut

How To Restore Gut Health

Essential Oils Are Fantastic For Achieving HRV

There were investigated changes in indices of the activity of regulatory mechanisms of heart rhythm in students under exam stress conditions and the possibility of their correction with aid of aromatherapy. The examination stress was established to be accompanied by pronounced shifts of integral and spectral indices of heart rhythm in students, indicating to the activation of the sympathetic circuit of Autonomic Nervous System in conditions of examination stress. A positive, relaxation impact of the essential oil of orange on the investigated indices was also recorded. The latter is expressed by weakly pronounced changes or lack of them in data of integral and spectral heart rate indices in students from the experimental group, that indicates to the stabilizing effect of used ethereal oil on the psycho-physiological state of students in conditions of exam stress.

What else?

Cold showers and exercise stimulate the Vagus Nerve, as does intermittent fating and rubbing behind the ears.

Music and sound therapy is going to be critical… the frequencies matter!!!

  1. Really interesting and informative article. I have been past life regressed and it was fascinating. I also fast daily for 23 hours. The energy and mental clarity is amazing. I also use your oils Rachel which I buy from Wells market.

    • I’m so glad you found this article interesting and useful. We are on the precipice of a whole new understanding of life and healing. It’s so exciting! We are living at one of the most interesting times in history. I feel that, not since the fall of Atlantis have things been so intense and important… and that we face the same dilemas and potential downfall if we don’t do things differently. I feel as though we must invest all of our energy in our enlightenment at the moment. The time is now for engendering love, acceptance, understanding and tolerance. We must finally choose peace and inclusivity or else lose it all as they did in Atlantis.
