What on earth is a UDIN ?





In Meta-Medicine, the stimulus to the entire disease process is the UDIN or Specific Emotional Event.

It starts the whole illness process off. How long it lasts, whether it becomes chronic or life threatening depends on whether we are able to avoid it being re-triggered or whether we are able to  resolve the underlying problem in its entirety,

So what is a UDIN, and how does it come about?

A UDIN is Unexpected, Dramatic, Isolating and there is No Strategy for it.

If you find yourself suddenly involved in an unexpected dramatic situation, we go automatically into the COLD phase, we are stressed.

What Is Meta-Medicine?

I am proud to announce that I have begun a new process in my Personal Training developement - Meta Medicine. Under the tutelage of Master Coach, Sam Thorpe, this promises to be a new paradigm in assessing and diagnosing client illnesses and injuries. Called Meta-Medicine, it is an integrative approach to the Spiritual, Environmental, Diet, Physical, Psychological and Emotional realms.

Here is a thought - if you became ill, and the situation persisted, what if...your body DIDN'T make a mistake.

What is your body telling you about your life?

My first yoga instructor told me that our body is a locked in history of our emotional state. Biosignature  modulation, pioneered by Charles Poliquin states that hormonal imbalances make you store fat in certain specific places (ie. Stress makes you fat around your stomach) and Traditional Chinese medicine states that the internal organs can house negative emotions (kidneys - fear, lungs - grief, liver - anger, spleen - worry, heart - sadness).

So what is YOUR body telling you right now about your emotional state?

What is Emotional Freedom Technique?

EFT works in the same way as clearing an obstacle to clear running water does.
Energy flows through us in much the same way as a river flows cross country. However, over time, debris, stones and rubbish accumulate(negative emotions, limiting or damaging beliefs in the Energy Body).
Eventually the river may find itself blocked or dammed up and its gentle flow disrupted, stagnated or its path altered.
EFT seeks simply to remove these blockages, the beauty being that this process often doesn’t require much work – once the boulders of emotional pain, negative self-talk and limiting beliefs are removed the river will flow to the full power of its remarkable potential.

Fish Oil And Prostate Cancer

There was a recent media feeding frenzy over the "revelation" that fish oil could cause prostate cancer. However the problem was that even the people who conducted the study conceded that there was no empirical link! This was because the study was an epidemiological one which attempts to show CORRELATION and not CAUSATION. There is a huge difference (this is discussed entertainingly in the link at the bottom of this article by nutrition expert Dr John Berardi).
 
Why do these studies make it into the media?

The Red Meat Controversy

There is a lot of controversy surrounding a diet high in red meat content. This started with the cholesterol controversy (which has been resoundingly debunked by guys a lot smarter than me - Dr Jonny Bowden, Dr Mercola, Dr Briffa, Coach Charles Poliquin and a number of pharmaceutical "whistle blowers" in the USA who confirm what a lot of us fear - that cholesterol is vital for body function and that reducing it could actually be counterproductive to good health!)
 
This is an argument for another day - but what is obvious from the research out there is that the old LDL = bad, HDL = good paradigm is a gross oversimplification of a far more complex issue.

FREE Geoff Thompson e-book

One of the greatest individuals that I have had the pleasure of personally meeting on a number of occasions is Geoff Thompson.
 
A fearsome martial artist with a remarkable life story, what makes him such a compelling and charismatic person is that he is a fine example that we can create our own lives in the image that we choose.
 
His is a story of abuse, violence, divorce, fear and yet this tough and unrelenting journey has forged a man who is gentle, kind, compassionate, considerate and who is living a life that most people from his background would have deemed "impossible".

Eating On The Go

It is one of the big problems for a huge majority of clients - what do I eat when I am on the road, busy and haven't had time to prepare anything?
 
My first recommendation is cook more than you need, and have that with you (so if you cooked a chicken, then that is hot or cold snacking for days). Of course there is the issue of refridgeration, and sometimes we just don't have time to get anything ready.
 
The worst case scenario is stopping off at a petrol station to get a snack. Very few (apart from the BP garages with an affiliate Marks & Spencer) have anything remotely resembling a healthy, nutritious or comprehensive range of foods - so what do you do?

What is a SuperGreen?

If you are rubbish at getting your vegetables in, my first recommendation is to purchase SUPERGREENS. These are a marvellous shortcut and actually nutritionally superior to a scraggly bag of wilted lettuce.
 
So what are they? Supergreens have been around for years, they are produced by various companies and usually consist of chlorella, wheat grass, barley grass, and spirulina. They come in powdered form and are easily mixed with water. The taste may take a bit of getting used to and the resemblance to something Yoda would drink is inescapable, but in terms of a nutrient dense package this takes some beating, and can make up the backbone to some truly Super Smoothie's.
