Interviewer: How does emotional health effect overall health? Or can it be the other way around as well?
Dr. Gordin: It's probably one of the, probably the most important side of the triangle, in reality.
Dr. Gordin: You can find any people, plenty of them, who actually have low back pain because of their emotional issues. You can have a lot of people have diabetes because of their emotional issues. You can have a lot of people who cannot digest food because they're constantly like a knot of emotions. Because when your body thinks it's stressed out, well there's only two ways kind of physiology works. Sympathetic, parasympathetic.
Sympathetic, you fight and flight. You need to fight right now or run away. Parasympathetic, you rest and adjust and you're healing.
The biggest issue with society right now, everyone is like a knot.
Dr. Gordin: Like we like to call it, saber-tooth tiger is running after you're not, you can constant run and constant fight. When you run on emotions, on adrenaline, your body couldn't care less about digestion, your utilization of proper nutrition, about healing something. Even the bad knee, for example or restore muscles better. Your body is in a state of fight.
Calm people down, the body will start healing. By itself. With a little bit of help from professionals.
Interviewer: Um-hmm. There are quite a few prescription drugs that deal with emotional health. What are some more natural ways to do that without having to get the drugs?
Dr. Gordin: There are so many ways. Okay? Triangle of health you can, again, reach each side from the different side. You can use herbs, but you cannot try to be more chemical. Okay? There are good herbs like St. John's Wart and Arrowroot, and a few, many others which you can use to calm people down. But in reality what health is, a healthy person to me, a person who practically doesn't need any herbs, any vitamins, anything. Pain-free. Good vitality. Good memory. And once in awhile, need a tune up. Basically, everyone understand tune-up.
Dr. Gordin: Tune-up, whatever tune-up might be. If you, sometimes you have a sore neck or something. Or you've been exercising. Or you didn't sleep well because you're traveling. Or you lifted something. Something unusual. Go fix it up. Just one visit, not a big deal.
For example, you've been traveling, you're dehydrated. You took a plane. You didn't eat good food. You had to eat some junk. Okay, obviously you have some disturbance. Tune it up. It's not a big deal. Nothing serious yet. Tune it up. Real easy thing. Couple of stops. Maybe something seasonal. Wintertime. Chicago's pretty, enough north. Maybe some Vitamin D for example. Or everyone is simply spraying viruses on you. Everyone is having snot up to the belt, you know?
Dr. Gordin: You maybe need to boost your immunity with a little something. A little something. It shouldn't be anything major.
Dr. Gordin: If you're a strong enough person, you just need a little boost. You don't need a complete recovery of your immune system.
With emotions, first of all, there are plenty of restalgia [sp?] points to do it. Which people can do entirely in the home. There are many techniques that people can do at home. And I'm not talking about tapping. Because Callahan Technique, Emotional Freedom Technique, they're good for now, just right now.
There are things, though, that you can do at home that can get you deeper and better and easier and faster. Of course, if you know that you are a complete emotional breakdown, people can get depressed, people can get physically exhausted because; hypothetical situation. They're divorced, lost job, can't see kids, sleep is destroyed, sometimes you need a professional who will actually help you rebuild or build you from scratch, including emotions. There are plenty emotional techniques starting from applied kinesiology techniques and all specialty kinesiologies which are off-shots of it. Normal Emotional Technique, Total Body Modification, Callahan's, EFT, and many, many others.
The good practitioner is supposed to know all of them because what are all the techniques in reality? It's a key in your pocket, in your toolbox. Each patient sometimes needs something light, sometimes something heavy, sometimes something stronger.
We're supposed to fix the patient and let him go.
I'm a strong believer in permanent correction. I'm not one of those people who say oh, I need to see you three times a week forever. No. No. You fix the person. You educate them how to be healthy. And preferably keep them out of the office so they don't bother you anymore.
Dr. Gordin: If they need a tune-up, please come over. Of course, I will help you. That's the best way. That's how the holistic healer is supposed to be. In my opinion.
