THE UNIQUE HEALING PROGRAM DONNA PESSIN: DEPRESSION UPDATE

Leave a comment

One thing that I truly marvel at while on The Unique Healing Program is how I can watch my mood and frame of mind change within moments of evacuating by bowels. I also have the distinct experience of being a third party in observing thoughts and watching them intensify and dissipate as necrotic- sick material is, this is my interpretation of what is happening, being escorted out of my system. I do not know this for sure, but Donna Pessin might suggest more clay to alleviate that experience. I have to say that there are some things on this program that no “crutch” [UHP supplement] can completely buffer. What does that mean? You are going to have some tough days that the crutches can not completely eliminate.

To get back to the depression lifting experience, this lifting of foggy thinking, a scrim of dissolution, confusion, indescribable mild to somewhat disabling sadness can sometimes happen without my bowels moving, but something is being dislodged and redirected in my body. Sometimes it feels like it is moving from across the Transverse Colon, past the two fissures [Hepatic and Spleen] and there is some mental relief as it moves out of those areas. After moving from those areas,waste is on its way out going toward the left side. I have experienced head and sinus pressure when having constipation or stagnation in the Transverse Colon. A known and experiential fact for most Colon Therapist. Much more complex things are happening with organs, blood and tissue that I can not explain here, or explain at all. I can tell you the Liver and Gallbladder are very involved with most all of these experiences.

I am writing this to say that if you are on The Unique Healing Program you may have these experiences on and off throughout the program. Sometimes there will be no obvious pattern involved.  Just hang in there. I have seen my entire perspective change in moments and feel very disengaged from the Worry Wart – Armageddon type approach to life that rules the media today. I think we are all impacted by this in some way, from a mildly troubled feeling to full blown paranoia. To feel hope is an amazing experience, and this program can bring you there. You can bring yourself there by doing The Unique Healing Program on whatever level you are capable of and employing patience.

The bones of The Unique Healing Program do work. It does take some personal tweaking of the program, diet and lifestyle. This all happens in stages. Self compassion and some discipline are helpful and develop along the way.This is all “stuff” I have learned. From time to time you can break the rules of UHP as you go along and still come out on top. Look at The UHP videos, reread the UHP books, read some of the blog posts here about UHP. These are all helpful reminders of what those rules are. Mostly, observe how easy it is to feel fed up with The Unique Healing Program. A program that is ultimately, in my case, giving me my life back. A confusing experience at at time when other people, of all ages, are watching themselves decline with no alternative plan. This is especially true for someone who is over 50, or for people of any age who have had a life threatening or debilitating illness.

Just some encouragement, I know we can all use some most days.

At the age of ten I distinctly remember questioning the premise that illness just happens to us. The idea that every action has a reaction became a clear reason to doubt that I could not personally impact my own health. In my very early twenties I was introduced to the Macrobiotic Philosophy of Life and assisted a Macrobiotic Counselor in NYC over a period of ten years or more. My life took many twists and turns and I evolved from a trained dancer and performer to a Shiatsu Therapist, Yoga Teacher, Colon Therapist and student of different Spiritually oriented Mind Body Therapies at the Esalen Institute and other healing centers. My associations are as follows: Member of the AOBTA for over 20 Years Member of the NCCAOM for approximately 12 years Member of the Yoga Teachers Alliance 500 hours for approximately 12 years Colon Therapist [ Wood's Institute ] Since 1998 Along with studying REIKI [ 2nd degree ] I was part of a School based on the work of Railey Macey, Dr. Robert Jaffe and Hands of Light. Railey Macey was my teacher. Thank you for your interest in my blog. notyourrawmoma "Wherever you are be the soul of that place". Rumi
