The keynote speaker was Dr Bruce Lipton. He is an international speaker on epigenetics.
His address gave the context for all the other speakers information. Essentially he gave an in depth perspective on how our environment is largely responsible for our genetic expression. Our internal environment can be influenced by what we eat, drink, our emotions, our thoughts, our relationships, by exercise or lack of it. Living in a bad environment will make us sick .... :
2 Dr Bruce Lipton. He began with Newtonian and Quantum Physics. Moving from one age of understanding to another at this time. New Science. It has already been established since 1925 that the the Universe is not a mechanism. He emphasises that genes do not control biology. Genes are blueprints only that get modified in their RNA expression depending on the environment. In our bodies, blood is the culture medium.
3 He described how genetic expression is conditioned by the regulatory protein that covers the DNA. The protein will either lift off the DNA and allow it to be replicated or not determined by what is within the cellular environment.
4 Dr Lipton spoke about the effect that we can have on our own experience if we become conscious of our response to the world. He proposed that 95 % of our response is habituated and unconscious and this tends to be a reading of life in a stress response. This leads to an internal environment that is not the most harmonious or health producing. Modern neuro- science proves that we are able to influence our brain and therefore our response to any situation in life.
5 Stress affects the brain which in turn communicates to the hormones of the body. The body prioritises a stress response and stops any general maintenance. Stress is extremely acidifying.
6 Dr Lipton emphasized that we are able to influence what we think and that we do well to strive for coherence between what we think and what is actually happening.
He concluded with “Notice what makes you positive, feel good and healthy and focus your experience on this to create a healthy environment internally. We individually create our own biology.
8 Richard Moat His basic premise is that our emotional life affects our physical life. Illness is an opportunity to look at how we are being in the world. He emphaiszed that our beliefs, values and prejudces are established from our environment before we are 7. He spoke about the role of unresolved emotions being responsible for illness arising in the body. That fear is frequently skipped over in our awareness and as a result the unconscious response that we have creates stress, blocks, pressure and lack of choices in our inner experience. FEAR = 'F..K EVERYTHING AND RUN' reinterpreted as: FEEL EVERYTHING AND RESPOND. Long term avoidance results in acidity and inflammation in the body. Cancer and other illnesses thrive in this kind of environment.
9. Richard says, we need to notice what we feel to get information and awarenesss about ourselves. Shift from Treating illness into Creating Wellness.
He named that as individuals we are able to create wellness by being able to acknowledge and live with a diverse range of emotion. That denial of emotions creates blocks in the body that show up in the form of symptoms. His premise is that all illness has an underlying emotional component and that to treat illness without addressing the emotional component will not be that successful.
10 Societally we frequently have difficulty acknowledging feelings of rejection or feeling vulnerable. We cover it up with various coping behaviours. Richard's take is that we need to feel fully in order to not create blocks in the body.
11 Dr Tim Ewer gave a very comprehensive talk which outlined the type of things that anyone can do. These are key in the journey to finding your own way of being healthy. We can achieve ill health, average health or enhanced health. Enhanced health offers us much greater potential in living. Tim acknowledged the work of Otto Warberg who regards the acidic environment in the body as a main cause, that cancer thrives in. He acknowledges the value of changing the balance of acidity/alkalinity of the internal environment to effect an aerobic rather than anaerobic state in the body. That there are various methods of treatments that people can receive with the support of a trained professional.
12 He outlined the effect of oxidative stress in creating mutating cells that lead to the development of cancer
13 He went further to outline how Obesity, and less than optimal conditions in the body lead to chronic inflammation and this in turn is an environment that may encourage the development of cancer.
Further he spoke about the use of Vit C in the treatment of cancer as it is proposed that intravenous Vit C has many beneficial effects to reduce or inhibit various aspects of the illness in its progression. He also named various other possible techniques. (We do not feel adequate to speak to this, rather to simply name that there are other options.)
14 Dr Ewer gave time to identifying various practices that help to create and maintain a balanced internal state. The state of inflammation is a stress condition which we are able to counter with the inclusion of various disciplines (see image).
He told us a story about rabbits who were used for research. In the research all rabbits responded to the tests similarly and got unwell, whereas one rabbit group did not. In further exploration, the researchers found out that the rabbits were looked after by a carer who loved and stroked the rabbits frequently. This shows that love and care has its own powers ....
15 Statistics relating to lifestyle choices and conditions (see image). Dr Ewer had a lot of examples of lifestyle changes that effect positive change/environment in the body
16 Dr Ewers recommendations (see image) to people who are dealing with a cancerous condition.
17 Jason Shon Bennett: Jason's message is all about how and what we eat and drink totally affects what we create in the way of health or illness of our body. He said, “Its not what you know its what you do!”
He gave a series of shocking statistics relating to cancer. This is one such slide.
As we go through slides from his presentation we will only speak to one or two points, its simply not possible to acknowledge everything.
19 He is interested in the approach of 'How to live a long and healthy life without drugs and disease.' Clear to see here what his approach is
He states that the gut is the most influencial organ with regards to the health of the body
20 Genes have been there for thousands of years but cancer rates are changing dramatically in our lifetime. Studies reveal that only a very small proportion of cancer is genetic. Genes require triggers, we control our triggers. Genetic expression transforms relative to diet and lifestyle. So we have a lot of command over this through our choices.
21 Critical to health is the pH balance of the body.
22 Jason acknowledges that Oxidative stress mutates genes and promotes the development of cancer. Fresh fruit and veges lower such DNA damage. Other foods listed all cause Oxidative Stress and DNA damage.
23 He spoke about the importance of moving the body and exercise, to keep the internal system healthy. He also promotes exposure to sunshine as being important for the creation of Vit D.
24 Jason highlighted the negative effects of too much sugar and the resulting promotion of cancer.
25 Its worth acknowledging how much sugar is in some commonly consumed foods and drinks
26 He emphasized the importance of regular bowel movement suggesting that 2-3 xs day is healthy and that plenty of fibre is required to enable this.
'The more control you put into controlling your life the greater your power in living!'
27 Take a moment to look at the chart of raw foods. How many of these do you consume on a daily basis? Which of these are you lacking the most ?
28 Dr Robin Kelly has an approach that is largely based in the relationship with ourselves and others, what he calls science in action. He is intrigued and practices what he calls the science of connections. Whether that is our environment or things in our environment. The heart is the most electrical structure in the body. It directly responds to our environment. He spoke of research that now proves chemical evidence, that childhood neglect and abuse can have lifelong effects. He emphasizes adding our specialness to our healing. As a physician who specialises in treating people who have received a cancer diagnosis he is particularly focused on a relationship with his clients where he listens and offers information and options. He emphases that a loving connection is one that creates the environment that enables healing to take place.
29 He works with the client to introduce a state that he describes as coherence. Once this is developed he endeavours to assist his clients to develop the practices and habits to maintain this for themselves. He also acknowledged that compassionate communication harmonises hearts. A coherent state is the most healing. Yoga is a very effective practice for harmonising the heart and for strengthening our ability to respond effectively to stress.
30 He has great respect for family and whanau as significant players in enabling an experience of coherence or connectedness and therefore promoting healing.
31 Jasmina Kovacev runs retreats for people with a cancer diagnosis. Besides dietry and lifestyle support she practices EFT Emotional Freedom Technique. Similar to Richard Moat, she emphasises unresolved emotional experience as creating stress in the body and that this is frequently unconscious, with negative influence on our health and wellbeing.
