Innate healing enhancement in anxiety disorders and MCS

Innate healing enhancement in anxiety disorders and MCS

Paul Yanick, Jr.

Common environmental chemicals, solvents and fumes, allergens, and mycotoxins injure and damage the liver’s triphasic detoxification system, thereby lowering cell-medicated immune functions and inhibiting innate healing mechanisms. The inhibition of innate healing causes toxins to be stored throughout the body where they activate prolonged inflammation. Plus, when toxins carry a positive charge, they are impossible to remove from the body with current methods of detoxification or chelation. The resultant ionic toxicity, followed by acidity, is found in anxiety disorders and treatment-resistant disorders such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). MCS is a multi-systematic and multi-symptomatic illness causing a wide variety of symptoms and damage to the organism. Upon a chemical exposure, many patients experience anxiety or panic attacks and a wide array of head and bodily symptoms. New clinical techniques are needed to address interferences and stressors underlying anxiety and MCS. If innate healing is deficient in these cases, it seems reasonable that optimizing cellular energy cycles and removing the segmented interferences of stress may help to speed up repair routines to minimize suffering and organ damage.


In addition to the abnormal accumulation of toxins with a positive ionization potential, new toxic solvents in body care products (synthetic fragrances) continue to emerge. Widespread food irradiation practices has introduced irradiated pesticides, plastics and toxins with positive ionization causing alarming increases in MCS, allergic and anxiety disorders. Many MCS patients have instant panic attacks within seconds after an exposure to solvents. As one would expect, disorders of this nature involve a depletion and/or damage to the liver’s detoxification functions and inhibition in energy flow via the meridians. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is well known that an excess of gall bladder or liver energy will cause anxiety. Since the liver is the frontline of all immune defenses, functional deficiencies in liver performance and detoxification allows microbial agents to bypass immune surveillance and defense routines. This causes cyclic and deep-rooted infections which produce endotoxins that induce and promote inflammation in the gastroduodenal juncture, a critical area for both digestion and detoxification. Could it be that duodenitis (1,2) caused by positive ionization and hidden biofilms, is the central factor underling most anxiety and MCS disorders?

In previous publications, I have introduced novel methods of tri-phasic liver detoxification that address duodenitis, (1,2) and also presented new perspectives on the causative factors involved with MCS, allergies, and prolonged inflammation. (3-10) More recently, I presented new molecular strategies to strengthen the liver’s tri-phasic detoxification system with nutra-botanical solutions to help the immune system combat overlooked, hidden, or treatment-resistant microbes. (11) In addition, I clarified how the body’s ground regulation system (GRS) or extracellular matrix, named the DNA-Meridian Interface, and brain proprioceptive feedback, are primary components of all innate healing responses. (22,23)

Defining Neuromuscular Interferences that Inhibit Innate Healing Energies

For decades, I’ve marveled at the body’s innate abilities to heal itself. Working and studying (directly or indirectly) with chiropractors, osteopaths and acupuncturists has given me a deep appreciation for innate intelligence or chi as the basis for all healing and regeneration in the body. Yet, it appeared that this incredible intelligence was often short-circuited or inefficient (repatterned) in chronically ill patients. It took over a decade of research to catalogue all the stressors that inhibited innate intelligence, leading to the development of the Quantum Repatterning Technique (QRT). While it was not my intent to develop a new technique, my unresponsive patients motivated me to answer questions I did not have satisfactory answers for. QRT, developed after three decades of research in brain proprioceptive feedback, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and a wide array of kinesiological approaches, allows practitioners to quickly identify the sequence of aberrant nervous/meridian dysfunction in specific organs or systems of the body that diminish the flow of innate healing energies. Accessing the body’s innate biofeedback communication system to define and remove the stressors and interferences restores greater operational complexity to innate healing. Hence, the repatterning process equates to removing the following interferences:

1. Muscle-organ Brain Proprioceptive Interference. The brain constantly assesses all biological information to maintain natural homeostasis. In fact, some chiropractors believe that the primary source of nerve dysfunction is in the brain, rather than the spinal cord. (18,19) If the information gathered by the brain is incomplete, inaccurate or uncompensated, the brain may inhibit the flow if innate energy via the governing vessel (posterior) and the conception vessel (anterior) and/or through brain proprioceptive feedback pathways. It took over 25 years of kinesiological experience to understand how the brain repatterns the body to compensate for stress (emotional, chemical, toxic, etc) or unaddressed clinical issues. For example, 100% of the time, an uncompensated gastritis will cause the brain to inhibit stomach functions via a defined sequence of muscle-organ blocks. While this compensatory physiology is desirable because it prolongs life, it simultaneously prolongs suffering because the damaged stomach cannot heal, digest food or respond favorably to an appropriate natural medicine. Hence, eliminating brain-muscle-organ blocks via flexoelectric therapies provides rapid enhancement of innate healing. (7) Prior to discovering flexoelectric-zero-point applications, clinical experience with other methods (low level laser, acupuncture, and chiropractic approaches) failed to completely eliminate faulty brain proprioceptive blocks. (7)

2. Positive Ion Polarization in the Digestive System causes electron transport chain (ETC) abnormalities, acidosis, and chronic thoracic subluxations (T3 to T8) that inhibit the liver’s detoxification and hormonal functions causing excessive abdominal fat (linked to prolonged inflammation, the root of all degenerative diseases) and MCS and allergies. Positive ion polarization congests the GRS by polarizing and inhibiting lymph drainage and circulation, thus disturbing innate communication and the ability of the body to stop prolonged inflammation and respond aggressively and with full strength against microbial stressors. Moreover, as long as there is an excess of positive ionic toxins, the cells will remain acidic despite alkaline diets or supplements, and digestive capacity is diminished.

3. Meridian-DNA Interface or GRS Chaos: The expression of the body’s intelligence through the DNA is dependent on the status of the GRS, the interface between the meridian system and DNA. The CV and GV meridians exert 90% control on how innate intelligence integrates and distributes energy throughout the body. Toxins and electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) overload these communication networks creating chaos. The GRS dynamic liquid crystal continuum has exquisite flexibility, sensitivity and “faster than the speed of light” responsiveness, enabling the organism to function as a coherent, coordinated whole. The liquid crystal phenomenon allows genes to send light/electrical signals to one another through a DNA information “superhighway” at incredible distances. DNA-guided biophotons flow throughout the body with awe-inspiring speed as they encode and transfer information. The magnitude of DNA coherence, determines how quickly and thoroughly innate intelligence responds to a trauma or stressor. When coherent, the magnitude of innate healing is so gigantic that it renders even the best of minds helpless for exploring the endless boundaries of its power. Faulty liver detoxification functions lie at the root of many GRS disturbances. Yet, unknown to most clinicians, it is at this level that life-saving immune compounds and molecular strategies can intelligently combat a wide range of microbial threats.

4. Sacral Subluxation Interference: Dr. M.T. Morter’s Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique, Dr. H.B. Logan’s Universal Basic Technique and Palmers HIO Technique emphasize the critical importance of sacral adjustment techniques. Morter states “The sacrum is the physical center of gravity of the body. It is the only vertebra that can subluxate. Everything else is compensatory.” (19) After many clinical trials, we now aim QRT therapies at the sacrum. Monte Elgarten, MD, a QRT Instructor, does three sacral balancing protocols on all his patients with exceptional clinical results. Our analysis of this clinical data reveals how the QRT Sacral Balancing I Protocol reduces interferences in the following muscle-organ-meridian-vertebra sequences: Fascia Lata-Colon-Li-C-1, L-2, Gastrocnemius-Adrenals-TW-T-11, T-12, Gluteus Maximus and Medius-Gonads-CV-L-5, C-2, Hamstrings-Colon-Li-L-4, L-5, Piriformis-Gonads-CV-L -5, Quadratus Lumborum-Spine-Li-L-4, L-5, and Adductor Pectineus-Gonads-CV-S-1. QRT Sacral Balancing II Protocol reduces interference in the bladder meridian accordingly: Sacrospinalis-Bladder-Bl T-12, L- 2, Peroneus Tertius & Brevis-Bladder-Bl-T-12, S-1, and Tibials-Bladder-Bl–L-5, T-12 while QRT Sacral Balancing III Protocol reduces interference as follows: Adductor Magnus-Gonads-CV T-12, L-4, Teres Minor-Thyroid-GV C-5, C-6, Quadriceps-Duodenum-SI L-4, Popliteus-Gall bladder-GB-S-1, Temporalis-Sinus & Stomach-St-T-8, and Trapezius (upper)-Kidneys-Ki-C7. Because the last protocol clears the gall bladder, duodenum and opens the circulation of the governing vessel meridian, it has the most powerful anti-anxiety effects of all three sacral balancing protocols.

Defining Stressors that Inhibit Innate Healing and Communication

The toxic and stressed patient is in a dysregulated state of weak physiology that puts strain on the efficient operation of innate communication and metabolic systems. For example, the total body nutrient pools utilized for quick neutralization of toxicants are different in the MCS patient and the normal individual. Our research has defined the key stressors that inhibit innate intelligence and trigger MCS/allergic and anxiety reactions:

1. Ionic(+) Toxins: Excessive positive ionization, a result of water, food, and air pollution, inhibits innate communication and healing. Albert Krueger, MD (the late UC Berkeley researcher) termed this condition “positive ion poisoning.” Russian scientists (supported by over 5,000 scientific studies) report that systemic ionization with negative ions has a wide range of positive health effects. It is well known that accumulated toxins, free radicals (oxidative stress), chaotic interferences, and disturbed electron flow disturb cellular physiology. Clinically, we detoxify positively-charged toxins with oral supplementation of negatively-charged ions to chelate and detoxify charged toxins and unstable electrons that cling to arteries and cells causing electron instability and a disruption of innate communication. When unstable electrons and GRS-interfering toxicants are cleared from the body, innate intelligence works to heal the body without interference.

2. Mycotoxins (molds) in our food, homes and environment are often found high in the liver of MCS and anxiety patients. Mycotoxins inhibit immune functions dramatically (some experts estimate up to 75%) and block liver detoxification functions, thereby forcing toxins into the brain and nervous system where they cause anxiety reactions and can damage the body. (4) A common mold, alfatoxin, is one of the most powerful carcinogenic agents known to us.

3. Gastro-duodenal dysfunction is common, causing a serious deficit in Phase III Liver detoxification and a resultant backup of toxins into the nervous system, kidneys, biliary tract, and lymphatic system where tissue and cellular injury occur. Moreover, the dysfunctional gastric and duodenal states cause maldigestion and plague the biliary networks, leading to alterations in peptides and the proper digestion of protein (amino acids). Of critical importance is taurine, the zinc-histidine (8) and zinc-taurine metalloproteins, consistently found depleted in MCS and allergic individuals. A zinc-taurine conjugate acts as a cell membrane stabilizer and membrane damage is universal in the MCS patient or in the patient with anxiety syndromes.

4. Poor Sulfoxidation: Poor sulfoxidizers are not able to break down and/or conjugate foreign compounds. Among the compounds that stress the liver, volatile hydrocarbons (solvents) used in the food industry and found in many body-worn fragrances are the most powerful inducers and promoters of MCS. Understanding how solvents can quickly reduce the liver’s functional efficiency (en estimated 60% reduction), damage sodium and potassium channels to inhibit the healing power of innate intelligence and produce multiple symptoms is necessary to provide proper intervention. Solvent residues easily enter the human body through the lungs and skin and are exceedingly common environmental contaminants in the home, work place or in social gatherings. Since they are not easily metabolized, they accumulate in fatty tissues including the brain and cells of the immune.

5. Nutrient Depletion and Acidosis: In the hundreds of observational studies performed at our center, nutrient depletion was the primary stressor in the chronically ill patients. Since toxic compounds may disturb, destroy, or deplete nutrients and damage cellular energy metabolism processes, a loss of nutrient reserves and systemic alkalinity from positively-charged toxicants is a constant stressor of the body. Clearly, since these nutrients are needed to detoxify highly reactive solvents, it is understandable why MCS is progressive and induces rapid degeneration of the body.

6. Biofilms, consisting of a dense symbiotic aggregation of microbes embedded in a highly hydrated polymer, polysaccharide matrix of its own secretion, found in the nasopharynx and teeth (under root canals, fillings, implants, or as chronic bacterial ostitis in extraction sites) or in the gall bladder or sphincter of oddi, block or inhibit proper digestion and liver detoxification. (10-16)

Toxins with Positive Ionization Potential: A Missing Link in Present Day Detoxification Protocols?

Constant exposure to environmental toxins and EMFs puts tremendous stress on the body, stretching the limits of human adaptability to the point where serious liver, neurological and brain damage occur. Found in cosmetics and everyday products, these chemicals have been documented to disrupt hormones, induce inflammation and cause cancer. Moreover, an overload of these chemicals causes dysfunction of vitamin metabolism and impairs absorption and/or utilization of many nutrients that play crucial roles in the detoxification process. Hence, avoiding these products while keeping the liver’s triphasic detoxification networks healthy and functional reduces health risks in MCS and lowers anxiety levels dramatically.

Unknown to many practitioners, most of these toxic chemicals have a positive ionization potential, adhering to the intestines, circulation and organs of the body. Intervention with proper treatment is critical to minimize health risks and prevent permanent damage to the body. Nutra-botanical upregulation of Phase I, II and III liver detoxification while bolstering nutrient levels may help to fuel and strengthen the body’s detoxification networks, to decrease stress and eliminate/excrete stored toxins, protecting the body from further toxicant-induced damage. Toxins with positive ionization potential can only be removed with negative-charged minerals that emit electrons that attract positively-charged toxins and free radicals.

In summary, new systems of rapid assessment have been designed to quickly pinpoint nutrient deficiencies and define aspects of dysfunctional physiology with nutra-botanical solutions while teaching advanced flexoelectric-zero-point methods of balancing neuromuscular status in the sacral area. (17) Such a tool quickly unveils the core issues in innate, immunological and hormonal unresponsiveness providing unparalleled insight into the quantic domain of life where complex, interwoven, energy fields govern our existence and determine how fast we will heal or recover from an illness, trauma, or an infection. Anxiety is commonly blockage in meridian energy circulation that often results in functional disorders of the gallbladder and iliocecal valve. Rather than rely on treatments that are often off-target and embarrassingly simplistic, practitioners need to depart from fragmented, analytical thinking, and find ways to repattern energy and neuromuscular holding patterns to improve physiology in the entire body. Body language–the interpretation of hypertonic and hypotonic muscles–communicates the body’s problematic condition with incredible accuracy. By eliminating interferences and stressors, innate intelligence can direct powerful and efficient repair strategies.

The key to unlocking the full powers of innate intelligence is related to the organism’s ability to’store and’maintain coherent or zero-point energy. How does one make random fluctuations of energy or segmented energy coherent? Researchers have shown that zero-point energy can be organizing influence on the body at the DNA level and induce an explosive surge of coherent energy that permeates the entire body. (26-38) When Dr. Elgarten applied this energy to the sacrum, Digitial Infrared Thermographs confirmed dramatic improvements at the neuromuscular level and immediate positive feedback was received from patients who had been on a plateau for months and even years. Patients who suffered for decades with a spastic quadratus lumborum, sartorius or any other muscle spasm noted increased flexibility and less pain in only 25 minutes of treatment with the sacral balancing protocols.

If the body’s energetic anatomy is not repatterned from the segmented interferences of stressors, innate healing becomes short-circuited or inefficient. (17,22-25) The foundational principles of QRT rest upon my multi-disciplinary research and consists of decades of experience with electroacupuncture, chiropractic (D.D. Palmer, George Goodheart, DC, M.T. Morter, DC, Wally Schmidt, DC and D.A. Versendaal, DC) and osteopathic (William Upledger, DO) techniques. Any statements regarding my technique are not to be interpreted as criticisms of these techniques or of these brilliant pioneering practitioners. Two decades of correlating electroacupuncture data to kinesiologic-physiologic findings with 100% cross-correlation has yielded protocols that balance the sacrum and quickly identify and clear the sequence of aberrant nervous/meridian dysfunction in specific organs or systems. I have been overwhelmed with the response from the readers of this column who are searching for ways to improve their clinical protocols. QRT, although highly complex in its totality, is thoroughly taught with simple, easy-to-learn protocols at QRT seminars.
