There is no question that I have much "body armor" to deal with. I already know that I have poor assimilation of nutrients and poor elimination of metabolic wastes. Jonathan's explanation on p. 129 addresses those very issues. In combination with armored tissue, thickened or crystallized ground substance literally blocks the exchange of oxygen, nutrients, and hazardous toxins. Cells, once deprived of these basic metabolic exchanges, become fatigued, toxic and inflamed, which creates the chemical conditions for arthritis, fibromyalgia, and many other pain conditions.
Page 169 goes on to explain why I am so left-brain dominant. "With the accumulation of suppressed body memory, then, some people find themselves residing in the left hemisphere of their brains, entrenched in a cyclical loop of analysis...." This describes me to a "T."
This book is great in opening up the basis for unresolved long-standing health issues which other techniques of alternative medicine have never properly addressed.
Great detail is put into helping the layperson, beginner, or experienced professional to understand, and to learn this refreshing combination of science and spiritual - too often, it is one or the other, but rarely is there an approach to a combined healing - a holistic healing. Mr. Tripodi takes educated, experienced information to explain this method.It is also a true passion of his; to introduce the reader to this healing path; for those suffering from minor aches and pains, to those who are in severe or chronic distress. He so intimately describes his own story of pain and heartache, and in his own searching for answers and healing, came to realize, it's not solely our brains that hold on to memories and events - both good and bad, but our body also, via our brains complex connection to the largest organ in our body - our connective tissue - the "stuff that holds us all together" in the body (quite the impressive organ I must say!). He gives excellent examples of his therapies in action, with many testimonials given, as to how it has helped them gain a new freedom from the "stored" past traumas/experiences in our minds and bodies.
I found it very enlightening to study his unique approach to a very ancient technique (superb footnotes and references!), by combining a physical, spiritual, emotional release of unrecognized pain, and the consequences it brings to our bodies through the stress we have all been dealt throughout our lives.
I have read too many self-help books to count, but this one, this particular book, struck me so hard, like no other book has done before - I am a skeptic by nature and "nurture", but I can honestly say I had no feelings of this book, and its author, of being anything other than genuine! I would strongly recommend this to anyone going through any difficulties, stressors, trauma, depression, anxiety... pretty much most of the population - if this sounds like you, please take the time to at least give this book a try... I humbly believe it will be of great help to you. It certainly has been for me! I am really starting to take hold of the belief and practices that it can help me just as much, if not more!
It is very well-written, meant to be understood by all. For those worried about anything "hokey"... it doesn't exist here. After being in the nursing field several years back, I found this to be the most refreshing, science based, but holistic book I have ever opened. It opened my eyes to an entirely different world of health. I have never taken notes in a book (except text books), but I found myself highlighting, writing in the margins, journaling more, etc. I had told my sister-in-law that I would loan her my copy once I was finished, but now, it has too much valuable information for me to part with it! Looks like I'll be getting another one for her... and I'm thinking probably more down the road.
I found the more I read, the more I "opened". He is a patient, gentle author. After reading the book, I had absolutely no questions about the science, the process, the reactions, and the eventual path to the happiness we all seek... I am excited to continue learning this loving, and full-body/mind/spirit approach to self-healing.
Thank you, Mr. Tripodi, for writing something passionate from your heart. It was a breath of very clean, fresh air. You have helped me pull open a door that has been "stuck" for quite some time.
