Tapping Away Stress - Nick Ortner (feature)

Life Deconstructed

Today’s passage, “Tapping away stress.” Dr. Roger Callahan, a clinical therapist and fellow with the American Academy of Psychotherapists Treating Addictions, in the 1980s had a client named, Mary, who had severe phobia of water.  He went through traditional therapeutic processes with her, to visualize a swimming pool, to expose her to small amounts of actual water and etcetera. Mary was in his office one day complaining of how her stomach would turn or she would feel bouts of nervous butterflies in her belly whenever she saw water. Dr. Callahan had been reading about the Chinese Meredian theory, which said the stomach meredian was located beneath the eye. He had an idea... He asked Mary to think of the water, while tapping beneath her eye to activate the stomach meridean.  As she looked at the picture of the swimming pool, she began tapping under her eye and almost immediately she said that her fear had evaporated, the phobia of water was gone.The meridian system is a concept in traditional Chinese medicine. Meridians are thought of as pathways through which life-energy, what is qi, flows.  Although, there is little scientific evidence supportive of the claim, millions have reported the benefits from acupuncture, acupressure and reflexology, which also use the body’s energetic meridian points to ease or cure all sorts of ailments, including stress and depression.So, in tapping the face, inside the wrist, the arms and other points may alleviate stress because the message of safety it sends to the amygdala.  So what is the amygdala? The amygdala is the part of your brain that interprets your environment if it senses or perceives danger, it sends a distress signal triggering perhaps a trauma response. A great way to explain this to children is to use the upstairs/downstairs metaphor. The amygdala is part of our downstairs brain.  We can literally be trapped ‘downstairs’ in a battle of fight or flight because the amygdala is in control downstairs. The downstairs brain is seen as more primitive.  Our upstairs brain contains the cerebral cortex and its various parts, including the middle prefrontal cortex located behind the forehead. So how does tapping take us from the downstairs ‘fear’ mode to upstairs prefrontal cortex ‘safe and secure’ mode? What a great visualization that is to ascend a staircase to safety… Well think of it this way. If someone robbed you at gunpoint and kickstarted your fight or flight response, would you be able to suddenly start tapping the cheeks or the forehead of your face? So when for someone with PTST, post traumatic stress disorder, tapping sends calming messages from the upstairs to the downstairs brain to say, hold up a second, you’re ok.  If you combine tapping with re-processing of trauma by victualing what happened as you tap yourself and speak statements of safety, the idea is the trauma alleviates and the healing begins. If you’d like to learn more about self-healing through tapping, I am including a link to the practitioner I admire as expert in the field, Nick Ortner in the details section episode.Remember the adage, “Check your feet”. If you are in a state of PTST, your body is shutting down, you’re having a panic attack, a memory, a phobia, “Check your feet” is a reminder to look down at your feet in order to breathe. Because by looking at your feet, welcome in the presence of awareness that you are not in that place. You’re a survivor. And, you survived that experience for a reason.

Please refer back to episode #258 all about digestion for some more insight on how to resolve common digestive issues.If you feel like you are doing all the right things yet you’re still struggling with digestive issues such as gas, bloating, or cramping—which are actually very common, nothing to be ashamed about—start with a high quality enzyme and try switching to a proteolytic probiotic.If you’ve never tried enzymes before, or have and it didn’t work, I encourage you to give MassZymes a go. It is a full-spectrum enzyme formula with 5 different kinds of protease, which is the enzyme that is the catalyst for the breakout of protein. And undigested proteins can cause a lot of gut dysfunction. And then their Probiotic, P3-OM, is a proteolytic probiotic, which means it digests protein. It’s antiviral, it actually eliminates pathogens and waste… and is maintainable in the human digestive system. Once in your body, the P3-OM super strain doubles every 20 minutes, and helps get rid of the bad guys—before it is safely eliminated. Give both MassZymes and P3-OM a go. So many individuals suffer from digestive issues—because any protein your body doesn’t break down creates digestive distress, gas, bloating and constipation. The combination of P3-OM and MassZymes ensures that all the protein you consume breaks down into absorbable amino acids.Go to bioptimizers.com/wellfed10 And use coupon code WELLFED10 to get 10% off all products.

The Tapping Solution: A Technique to Lower Cortisol and Reduce Stress with Nick Ortner

New Frontiers in Functional Medicine

A nurse wakes in the night in profound anxiety, she can’t breathe, her first panic attack. Her husband is quarantined with COVID19; while she works the frontlines at a large hospital, witnessing what looks like the apocalypse. She begins a series of gentle, EFT Tapping exercises. After three brief rounds, she’s through the panic, able to once again relax. Nick Ortner is the CEO of The Tapping Solution, LLC, and my guest today on NFFM. Tapping is such a simple, elegant, immediate solution to the profound anxiety that comes with the out-of-control stress, fear and economic panic intrinsic in the COVID pandemic. With the Tapping Solution app (full access is available to healthcare providers for free), we can ground ourselves as needed. And for the data hounds among us (yes, that would be me); the app is tracking outcome. Over 1.5 million sessions have been conducted using the app. Regarding COVID19 specific exercises, Nick reports a couple of things: 1. Stress is at an all-time high 2. There is a daily average 45% reduction in the experience of stress after TAP exercises. You will enjoy this in-depth interview with Nick, and takeaway immediate tools to put to use for yourself and your patients. Let me know what you think, and please rate and review wherever you’re listening to New Frontiers.~DrKF
