Understanding Applied Positive Psychology – ACE Score – Meta Medicine

To be CALM and HAPPY are the most important life skills.

Learning to scramble fears and negative emotions and reprogram the mind and body to achieve this; is the action to take.

No therapy or treatment will have a truly lasting effect and achieve long term without the  understanding and desire to change the belief and emotional re-action that has created the problem in the beginning.

 Symptoms can be relieved in the short-term, but as a natural process the problem will re-invent itself if the core FEARS and BELIEFS  are not addressed.

Everyone feel happier when responding to carrots or incentives, rather than trying to run away from a deep FEAR ( a stick that chases you). Trying to flee is, by nature, a negative response and creates stress, anxiety and poor focus, which leads to poor decision making, failing health and negative re-actions like anger and aggression.

The most effective and lasting way to achieve change is to define DESIRES and BELIEFS that create HAPPY feelings. Then design and act on a plan to help you achieve the desired destination . This is APPLIED POSITIVE action that will trigger POSITIVE emotional re-actions.


We only achieve major change, when we have a change in BELIEFS. It starts with a CONSCIOUS decision to change then the sub-conscious mind follows. No one outside of you can change your subconscious mind without your approval.

With very old and deeply ingrained habits the change can be achieved much more quickly through subconscious work, with therapies like hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT or guided meditation.

My Comments

I spend much of my time working with traumas, fears and pain; many clients have sad experiences to move forward from.

With the intention of helping clients feel GREAT ABOUT THEMSELVES and to achieve permanent change, I work with PSTEC, tasking, massage and nutrition. These TOOLS are important in changing focus and creating new habits. Learning to feel good about yourself (feeling calm, happy and believing in your own abilities) is the ONLY way to achieving truly permanent change, good health, longevity and happiness.

SO ENJOY YOURSELF, GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO HAVE FUN Try it. Hire a dozen of the funniest DVD’s you can and spend a weekend watching them; see how you feel and think at the end of the weekend, compared to before?

Stress Test Risk Rating

A well known measure of stress the Holmes and Rahe, assigns a value to life changes to determine who is most likely at risk of stress. Someone who scores more than 200 in one year has a better than 50% chance of suffering a serious physical disorders the next. STRESS EQUALS PHYSICAL ILLNESS (even higher odds within 3 years)

Conflict Shock as the Beginning of Disease

An introductory article about META-Medicine Beyond Risk Factors

Are you tired of hearing about risk factors, genetics, toxins, diet, stress and germs all being the cause of disease? Do you suspect that there must be something more fundamental, a missing link behind a given dis-ease process?

In 16th century, Descartes proclaimed that the mind and body were separate,since then medicine has focused on understanding the bio-mechanical and bio-chemical aspects of dis-ease, while the cause remains a mystery. Medical dictionaries describe almost all diseases as idiopathicï meaning of unknown causes or autoimmune meaning the immune system attacks the body. Beyond this, medicine can only offer hypotheses in the form of risk factors, including germs, genetics, lifestyle, mechanical malfunction and stress.

Therapists often look deeper, exploring body type, psychology, energy systems, our milieu, astrology and other data. Yet even within alternative and complementary approaches there remains a gap in understanding: a definitive and scientifically robust explanation of why specifically we get dis-ease.

Why does one person develop a cancer while another remains healthy? Why do some people have chronic digestive issues, while others get frequent colds or heart problems?

And why do people get a particular illness at a specific time in their life? The reigning paradigm – Aren’t our genes, stress levels, toxins and germs the causes of disease?

Lets explore some of the current theory about why we get ill. Genetics: The Primacy of DNA is the latest media bandwagon and increasingly seen as the answer to many dis-eases. Yet Bruce Lipton’s work in the field of cell biology and epigenetics has proved that the environment influences our genes, not the other way round.

Furthermore, only 5% of illnesses are due to genetic heredity. So what about the other 95%? Nutrition: There is ongoing debate about what constitutes a healthy diet and how certain foods may encourage or avert dis-ease.

Yet there are groups of people, breatharians, who neither eat nor drink, and obtain energy through meditation from prana or sunlight. This is scientifically documented. Still for the vast majority, nutrition is an important factor affecting our vitality, yet cannot in itself be seen to cause or prevent dis-ease. Smoking and other toxins: The media emphasises the link between smoking and many dis-eases, yet research is inconclusive.

Meta Medicine

Meta Medicine can give a precise, empirically-proven understanding of any health issue, whether it is back pain, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, eczema, IBS or simply a cold.

Meta Medicine understands every disease to be a process that has two phases – the sympathetic and parasympathetic (stress & resolve). Through this knowledge Meta Medicine is able to identify where in these two phases the illness / disease is and best to work with it for complete resolution.

Meta Medicine Phases

Meta Medicine works with 10 core principles which redefines our thinking and understanding of illness & disease and the healing process. Although Meta Medicine believes in the mind-body connection, it is actually a more precise organ-mind-brain-social connection that Meta Medicine uses in the understanding of disease.

Meta Medicine Models

All this information is collated and applied in diagnosis and this enables the health coach to provide you with an accurate timeline of past and future symptoms and what you can do to resolve and restore well-being

Many of us know people who have smoked for years and still outlive their peers! Members of the 7th day Adventist community in the USA, have even ingested strychnine with the belief that God will protect them and they don’t get ill! Stress: This is another popularly cited cause of ill health. Even The medical profession say that 95% of disease is caused by stress. What does stress actually mean? What is it specifically? What may cause a stress-related illness for one person doesn’t for the next. So how can we explain different reactions & tolerance levels?

Viruses, bacteria and other microbes: Louis Pasteur is often glorified as the saviour of humanity for his twin triumphs of pasteurization and vaccination. What underpins both is Germ Theory, the foundation of Western medicine and Pasteurise legacy. However, the most pioneering areas of science are now showing that Germ Theory is based upon faulty assumptions. Even Pasteur realised this.

On his deathbed in 1895 he said: The pathogen is nothing. The terrain is everything Pasteur denouncement came too late to stop the burgeoning medical-industrial complex. Yet mounting evidence, particularly from Dark Field Microscopy, is proving that viruses, bacteria and fungi are continually present within our blood environment. So this begs the question, why do we sometimes get ill, while at other times their presence has no effect? Each of these factors can have a debilitating effect on the body-mind and result in lowered vitality. However, none can be considered (even in combination) to be the root cause of a disease. None of these risk factors satisfactorily explains why or when some people get ill while others remain healthy.

META-Medicine highlights answers to these mysteries. META-Medicine is an advanced mind-body diagnostic tool based on 10 principles. It integrates and goes beyond modern, complementary and alternative medical approaches. The missing link – Scientific evidence proves the connection between emotional shocks and dis-ease If you’ve ever read books by Dr Deepak Chopra, Louise Hay, Dr Caroline Myss or Dr Candece Pert you will be aware of the mind-body connection and emotional links with ill health.

META-Medicine provides us with a scientific and evolutionary meaningful understanding of how and why dis-ease begins. META-Medicine explains how a conflict shock or Significant Emotional Event (SEE), always precedes dis-ease. A SEE is an experience that is unexpected, dramatic and emotional, and we don’t know how to deal with it. It can range from an argument to receiving bad news, such as a bleak medical prognosis to a life-threatening situation like being involved in a car crash. At the moment of the SEE, there are changes at all levels: psyche, nervous system, organ, brain and our interaction with the social environment.

METAMedicine maps the specific emotions felt at the time of the shock to a specific organ, allowing you to understand the cause and process of dis-ease and healing. Each area of the brain corresponds to a specific organ, and the impact of the SEE is observable on a brain CT (Computer Tomography) scan. The specific emotion experienced will determine which organ reacts.

For example, the epidermis (upper skin) is affected by a loss-of-contact conflict, while the lung alveoli are affected by a fear-of-death conflict. The emotion is the driver of the dis-ease. It was in Germany in the late 1970s that a medical doctor made this fascinating and profound discovery. Two events in his own life, the first the death of his son and the second a testicular tumour, led him to ask his patients very different questions.

His findings were remarkable in all the women he interviewed, who were on a gynaecological ward for ovarian issues, had experienced a significant emotional shock, in this case, a profound loss, shortly preceding their illness. Furthermore, the patients CT scans showed visible brain relay changes in the exact location of the brain responsible for directing the ovaries. Since then over 40,000 case studies have demonstrated the connection between significant emotional events, brain relay changes and specific dis-eases.

Paradigm Shift – Symptoms are biologically meaningful Even if we accept that emotions cause dis-ease, a question still remains about why specific emotions trigger specific dis-ease processes. Let’s look at a couple of examples. Imagine a mother walking along a street with a young child in tow. The child is bouncing a ball, drops it, and the ball rolls into the road. The child instinctively runs after it. Imagine at that moment that a car rounds the bend and hits the child. How does the mother react?

The accident is unexpected, dramatic, and emotional, she has no strategy for dealing with it. She will instantaneously go into the fight-flight-freeze response. If her primary emotion is worry for the child’s survival, she will also get a growth of breast gland cells in either her right or left breast (this depends on her neurological wiring, and will only occur on one side, unlike during pregnancy).

This unexplained growth, if diagnosed by a medical doctor, is likely to be labelled as a breast cancer. So why does it occur? It is an emergency programme to enable the woman to produce milk to nurture the child back to health. It is a biologically meaningful response.Therefore, this dis-ease is logical and meaningful from an evolutionary perspective.

From a META-Medicine perspective, rather than being errors of nature or the cumulative effect of risk factors, our bodies reactions are bio-logically meaningful, with the goal of survival and evolution.

This is the case for all dis-eases, including colds, eczemas, diabetes and cancers. META-Medicine provides us with precise and biological answers to our health questions. As therapists, if we know the cause of a dis-ease, and the meaning of our body’s response, we can do more than simply treat the symptoms. We can assist healing and empower individuals at all levels the mind, body, spirit and socially working with, rather than against the healing process. Robert Waghmare and Joanne Ross
