Healing Naturally and Primary Reflexes by Margaret Mulder is actually a book unlike any I have ever read before. I have done a lot of reading about natural healing, but I have never heard of primary reflexes.Primary reflexes, as you might surmise from the use of the word 'primary,'relate to very young children. Certain reflexes are inherent in a newborn child and others develop over the child's first six months or so. Once a reflex has outlived its usefulness, it naturally becomes what Mulder calls' inhibited.'These reflexes have purposes such as helping a baby to hold its head up to crawl, or to withdraw when startled. If these reflexes are not inhibited to make way for new development in a baby, they can cause problems such as autism or physical illness.
I found this book extremely interesting because I have a few unexplained health problems, and I also work in a hospital and so I am exposed to many people with different types of illnesses that I am not familiar with. Healing Naturally and Primary Reflexes will give me a new frame of reference with which to relate to my patients. In addition, I would like to find the source of my migraines and nerve spasms. The answer could be at least partly in primary reflexes. I would like to have seen a few more suggestions for how to work with your own primary reflexes prior to seeking the help of Ms. Mulder, but not much practical information of this type is given in this book, so it is difficult to know how to help oneself to inhibit one's primary reflexes.
About the Author
Her journey to RPRM® started in the 1980s with an insight into the future world of children in our society. She was shown the development of an outside factor; the huge increase of stimuli, which caused fragmentation in the body, thus impeding children from growing up organically.
Later on as a mother, she wanted her children to grow up in a natural environment without antibiotics, pills, artificial food or materials and over the years she took various Natural Health trainings. When she experienced a period of waning health and vitality and laid hands on information about uninhibited primary reflexes, being an experienced kinesiologist she instantly recognised the enormous impact of uninhibited primary reflexes on people. She managed to find a fast way to get her own uninhibited primary reflexes under control and this proved to be the solution to her energy leak. Her organism started to store energy.
In 2002 she started giving courses on primary reflex inhibition to kinesiologists. She lectured about it internationally. In her work with clients she gathered much evidence based material on effects of uninhibited Primary Reflexes and inhibition results. Frequently she published on the subject in different magazines. Besides articles, she wrote all training material for RPRM® and two books on Primary reflexes.
Over the years the courses for kinesiologists have grown into RPRM®, a professional training program. RPRM® is an all-round training in Primary reflex inhibition and stress release. The training focuses also on self-development. Movement and Sound (voice) form the core of the training.
Margaret provides in a holistic approach to health. In her practice she works with children and adults to restore their potential for organic recovery. Since 2002 she has assisted over 1,000 people with her method. Today she focuses on RPRM®, and especially on writing about Primary reflexes.
