Adverse Childhood Events and Holistic Healing with Niki Gratrix :074

Abundant Energy Expert Niki Gratrix shares how Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) are probably the most important root cause to address for true holistic wellness.

Niki Gratrix, BA Dip ION NANP, is a nutritionist and energy expert who quickly realized that there was an emotional side to healing that was required in her clients for true wellness and complete healing. Niki discovered a correlative study on adverse childhood events (ACEs) by the CDC whose data shows that ACEs are found in epidemic levels in the population, and how devastating these ACEs are to health and well-being. Niki then started a journey to integrate identifying ACEs with her clients, increasing client awareness of the impact on previous trauma on their own health, and facilitated client-based conversation around facing these past events and moving forward for true holistic wellness. In this information-packed interview, Niki tells all about ACEs, how they contribute to health issues, how to identify ACEs, how to address ACEs, and how increasing awareness about ACEs in both conventional and holistic healing modalities is crucial in the evolution of raising human consciousness and well-being.

 

Listen to the podcast to hear:

  • How what happens to us emotionally always affects us physically via epigenetic changes, even before we are born or aware of ourselves
  • How different ACE scores correlate with your risk of health issues
  • How ACEs contribute to digestive, hormone, thyroid, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, cancer, depression, anxiety, headaches, pain, fibromyalgia, fatigue issues, lifespan, and more
  • What the ACEs are
  • ACEs: the research missed that need to be addressed
  • How many generations back do epigenetic changes get passed down to offspring from both mother and father
  • What are silent ACEs, and how most trauma is ambient
  • How silent ACEs affect our social relationships
  • How social relationships are more important for survival than BMI and other risky health behaviors
  • Why Niki says ACEs are the number one root cause of modern health issues
  • What the trifecta of contributors to health issues is
  • How ACEs affect epigenetics, behavior, and belief, and how that in turn affects lifestyle choices, health, and chances of fully healing
  • How the addiction therapy world is changing their therapies based upon new knowledge on the importance of ACEs
  • How binging and junk food snacking choices are linked to ACEs
  • How practitioners can create burnout in themselves either through over-giving, over-achieving, or perfectionism in their own hustle for worthiness unless they deal with their own ACEs
  • How ACEs can affect our belief system that we are worthy of getting better
  • How ACEs increase your risk of heart disease via epigenetics, despite 􀍞perfect􀍟 diets and cholesterol levels
  • How our stress thresholds are set epigenetically starting in childhood with ACEs, radiating to brain cell function and gut function
  • How our ACEs can even cause destructive approaches in our healing process, and affect our entire perception of the world
  • How our emotional intelligence is in a worse state than our diet choices as a culture, and how that is initiated in childhood and radiates all the way out through international behavior
  • The difference between superficially addressing stress with clients versus fully diving into ACEs with clients
  • How to prepare yourself as a practitioner to discuss ACEs with clients
  • How assessing ACEs needs to be done on all three levels: physical, energetic, and mental
  • How to figure out your or your clients’ ACE scores
  • Why you need to ask about your familial history of ACEs, not just familial health issues, as part of the pre-intake education process
  • How to know when to refer out clients with certain ACEs
  • How neurofeedback, EFT, essential oils, journaling, time in nature, joyful and creative activities, and daily rituals can be useful in overcoming ACEs and retraining epigenetics back to a more parasympathetic state
  • How enneagram assessment (www.enneagraminstitute.com ) can be used to help figure out how you are coping with your ACEs
  • How setting boundaries in relationships and who you are around is crucial to dealing with ACEs
  • How just talking about a past issue that you have never discussed is so strong that it can change your epigenetics
  • How practitioners can only offer the ACE healing to their clients that they themselves have achieved
  • 􀍞We can only take our clients as far as we have gone ourselves􀍟
  • How forming partnerships with counselors and other CAM therapists is a beneficial way to help clients address ACEs
  • 􀍞If you are just doing biochemistry, you aren’t holistic􀍟
  • How to warn clients (and yourself) about emotional detox when starting to address ACEs, and how to sit with the pain of feeling their feelings

How to Beat Cancer Naturally with Jack Kungel :045

Jack Kungel Beat Cancer Naturally 2 Times and is Eager to Share How He Did It!

It’s easy to think that chemotherapy and radiation are the only ways to beat cancer. Well, Jack is here to tell you emphatically that there is another way. In his opinion, there is a better way to beat cancer and beat it for good!

 

“It was diet and cannabis. [that healed my body from cancer]”

– Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

Jack Beat Cancer (oh, and diabetes and other dis-eases) with Cannabis

Jack has beaten cancer twice and has been cancer-free for over 5 years!

In the early 90’s he had a devastating accident and was immediately put on a long list of medications – many for pain management.

Not only was he left with a debilitated body from the accident, he suffered life-altering side effects from the medications; particularly vomiting (for 20 years 15-20 times a day) which wore down his teeth, caused breakage of ribs and pain on top of pain. He realized that he was in chemical toxicity from all of the medications.

With his first diagnosis of bladder cancer which also affected the prostate, the doctor left him with the option of surgery. Jack took some time to think things over, time that was becoming increasingly more valuable.

 

“I took 28 days from the 3 or 4 months they said I had after being diagnosed with cancer, and began to educate myself.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

Jack mentions that he had a serendipitous meeting in which a man introduced him to the healing powers of cannabis. He began taking in this medicinal plant in every way possible immediately: smoking, vaporizing and ingesting.

The therapeutic effects of cannabis allowed him to easily wean from his medications; from 22 medications a day to zero in a matter of a couple of months.

When he was cleared of cancer he dramatically reduced the cannabis protocol he was following. But, the cancer came back.

 

“Your body is the computer and the cannabis is the anti-virus. You take it and goes to where the body needs to heal… We are hardwired for this plant.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

What it Took to Beat Cancer Again

This time Jack took a “no holds barred” approach. He not only aggressively began his cannabis regimen again, he drastically changed his diet to eliminate all meat, dairy and sugar. He now eats a mostly vegan diet consuming eggs only about once every 4-5 months and using bone broth regularly. He says he eats a lot of veggies and nuts and only whole fruits.

Jack explains from what he learned along his healing journey that cancer cells feed off of sugar and an amino acid called methionine. Methionine is predominantly in animals products, which is why Jack avoids these foods.

In the interview Jack explains the healing components of cannabis and dispels the belief that CBD (the non psychoactive component of the plant) is just one aspect of the healing component of the plant. He confirms that THC not only is the part of the plant that knowingly produces the “high” but is the most healing.

Well, it’s a fun and lively conversation… and there’s so much more!

 

“We want full plant medicine… You need the THC-delta-9 to heal… CBD just addressed the symptoms.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

“I couldn’t walk before. Now I walk four or five miles a day.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor

 

Other topics we talked about:

  • Endocannabinoid System
  • CBD1 and CBD2 receptors
  • Decarb cannabis (baked, dried cannabis at 240 degrees) which converts THC 8 to TCH delta 9 which is curative
  • How cannabis extended the life of Jack’s dog with hip dysplasia
  • Why cannabis became illegal
  • Evolution of cannabis becoming legal in Canada
  • What we can do in the US to legalize cannabis
  • Friends with Osteoarthritis and Multiple Sclerosis sufferer can thrive due to cannabis.
  • Run From the Cure (video that Jack mentions)
  • How high estrogen cancers needs to be treated differently
  • Bone marrow (bone broth) boosts the T-cells
  • How a friend helped him figure out that his intense skin reactions was acidic reaction (burns)
  • The perspective of gaining LIFE!
  • How quantum hypnosis helped
  • How a friend with glioblastoma (an aggressive cancer that begins in the brain) has survived 2 years (when given only 2 weeks to live!)
  • How Jack deals with negativity
  • Why not to say “My (disease)”
  • The role of Methionine and Serrapeptase

 

There are so many nuggets!

Watch or Listen for more… Enjoy!

 

 

“All I did was give my body the proper tools to heal. I removed all the toxins and stepped back and allowed the body to do its thing.” – Jack Kungel, Cancer Survivor
