Unwanted excess body weight as mitochondria, as unconscious

HealingToolbox view of thyroid issues as they pertain to unwanted physical weight

In conventional medicine, excess unwanted weight is thought to be caused by deficient messaging to mitochondria by hormones produced in the thyroid gland.

This not wrong but is clearly not the whole picture. Evidence for this includes the thousands of people on natural and artificial thyroid hormones who experience a range of benefits; yet often, not total release of excess weight.

The bigger picture, the smarter picture, seldom taken into account, is an expanded view of our mitochondria.

Excess weight, at one time called “cellulite” and earlier called “myxedema” is simply cellular nutrition stored and not being burned by cells. If you ask Mr. Google about “myxedema” and click on Images, you see many examples.

Where do cells get their nutrition? Food passing thru our digestive tract is broken down into cellular nutrition and allowed directly into the blood stream as “safe.”

When cells cannot or do not burn safe cellular nutrition proved, the body stores cellular nutrition for when it is needed. This is Cellulite and Myxedema.

How do cells burn nutrients? In the mitochondria, where nutritional nutrients are burned with Oxygen to make energy (ATP).

How do mitochondria know how much nutrients to burn? Thyroid hormones message exactly these instructions.

Thyroid hormones also message mitochondria how fast to reproduce themselves. Thyroid hormones may also message mitochondria how mobile to be within each cell. Mitochondria can and do move around within each cell, providing more energy where a cell wishes increased activity.

This is why we feel better after physical exercise. People with even small amounts of unwanted excess body weight, due to under-active mitos, feel better because physical exercise stimulates Oxygen intake. Oxygen intake stimulates our mitos to be more active. They begin burning excess cellular nutrition nearby.

So unwanted excess body weight is like stocked up firewood for the winter. Mitochondria either are not burning it, and/or not using it quickly enuf, and/or too few mitochondria exist to burn the stored “wood” accumulating.

Broda Barnes, Mark Starr and Jerry Tennant have been leaders over 40 years for natural dried pig thyroid as more bio-compatible and bio-available than synthetic thyroid hormones. Nature-Throid by prescription and Thyroid-S from Thailand without a prescription seem to be the current choices.

Q: Besides ingesting adequate and sufficient thyroid hormones, what else can we do?

A: A re-education process is needed.

1) Start looking at our unwanted excess body weight as expressing hypo-mitochondria function.

When your mitos are burning cellular nutrition optimally, reproducing optimally and moving around your cells optimally, unwanted excess body weight melts away.

Regular physical exercise accomplishes this too but only to a relatively small degree in most people.

2) Start looking at your mitochondria as representing your unconscious. How aware are you of your UNconscious? Are the two of you friendly? Enemies? Fren-emies?

Q: In Psychosomatic Medicine terms, what is the “epidemic” of unwanted excess body weight telling us?

A: The epidemic of unwanted excess body weight has two messages we can uncover and put into words:

– For many people and most children, the epidemic is telling us we are getting too many of our calories from carbs. Our body is designed to get most of its calories from various oils, vegetables; and then to a lesser extent, proteins and carbs.

– If your diet is already healthy, unwanted excess body weight has this message, “Conscious Waking Self is unaware of and “in the dark” about the unconscious parts of your own waking psyche.

Q: How do I connect and communicate with my unconscious?

A: A Skill Ladder of Self-connection methods exists. It starts with yoga, meditation, and progresses to personal, home experiments in sensory awareness, acupressure and point-holding techniques. Towards the middle of the ladder, meridian tracing (see Donna Eden videos on YouTube) and self-testing (self-muscle-testing, arm-length-testing method is preferred).

Q: Do you mean to tell me, my unwanted excess body weight is telling me I am out of contact and connection with my own Inner Child and my deeper unconscious?

A: Exactly. You got it.

Q: But I don’t want to explore my inner child; it’s full of pain.

A: No problem. Enjoy the weight.

Q: I’m on good terms with my Inner Child and I still have a lot of unwanted excess body weight.

A: This tells you your next experiments in self-exploration are deeper in your UNconscious. Simply use your preferred methods to stay connected with the Highest God and Greatest loving, as you explore new areas deeper in your psyche. Ask for Protection. Only wrong way to ask is not to ask at all.

Q: I’m ready to explore my unconscious. Where is it?

A: It’s visible and active in your bad habits. Pick one small, tiny, minuscule habit you wish to change and take the tiniest baby steps you can imagine to improve your habits there.

If you do this, you build “muscles” to explore and transform little habits the next size up.

Any questions?

GP#7 The Heroes Journey: At different stages, different views

I accept everyone is on a Heroes Journey–even tho most people aren’t yet conscious of being on such a path.

My experience is any two people CONSCIOUSLY on the Heroes Journey generally will be like-minded enuf to at least understand each other and each other’s goals.

Within all the people consciously on the Heroes Journey, I’m aware differences and potential conflicts exist. Not everyone on the Journey is at the same stage of the cycle.

I think I’ve found a way to discuss these views. Why bother? Let’s assist people to more clearly perceive where they and others are on a Journey cycle with up to 17 stages, depending on how you count them.

In the Wikipedia version, the Cycle begins at 9 o’clock with ordinariness, goes all the way around and ends at 9 o’clock with ordinariness.

Different depictions of the Heroes Journey in circle form use different starting places. Many start and end at 12 noon. See 50 circular depictions at images.google.com.

Once two people both acknowledge each other being on a Heroes Journey, I suspect the main conflict arising is between people at 3 o’clock and 9’o’clock positions.

The Call – Everyone starts at 9 o’clock

People consciously responding to The Call for the first time are by far the largest group.

At the first position, individuals stop being unconscious Muggles. They acknowledge a Bigger Me is potential–even if they have no idea how to actualize it.

If an individual continues taking baby steps forward, soon they encounter The Call, an invitation to actualize their own Bigger Me in some way. Everyone is free to act on this Call–or ignore it. Up to you. Soul is choice.

When an individual consciously acknowledges The Call, it’s like buying a first time ticket to ride a roller coaster or bungie jump. You don’t know what will happen; and, you know a personal experience is inevitable.

Generally at the 9 o’clock position, individuals have yet to make any definite choiceselection of a method, service or study which becomes their vehicle of self-transformation.

Opposite this larger group is a much smaller group, at the 3 o’clock position.

At the 3 o’clock position, we are consciously facing our Descent; or perhaps even, in our Descent. In the Descent an individual connects with their dilemma (unresolved disturbance) and accepts the one or more methods for exploring it.

One famous method often employed at 3 o’clock is exploring your own “shadow,” becoming more accountable for our less-than-conscious behaviors and habits.

To use a pop-psychology Jung phrase, The Descent requires individuals to face, own and begin conversation with their own Shadow.

The other very famous method employed here is Inner Child work of any kind. Inner Child work and Shadow work overlap about 90%. The similarities far out-weigh any differences.

Because they are using one or more methods to integrate disowned parts of their own Bigger Me, people at the 3 o’clock position, have a good deal more Coherence, Integration and Alignment–the new CIA–than folks still at 9 o’clock.

In a word, the people at 3 o’clock have more integrity, than the people at 9 o’clock.

Consequently a person at 9 o’clock and one person at 3 o’clock can come into conflict. “Hearing a Call” to find and integrate a Bigger me is not yet the same as having looked into the mirror of your own unconscious and begin to address its shortcomings.

The Descent always involves facing deeper aspects specifically outside of and beyond what we define as “ordinary,” normal and “business as usual.” The Descent is the first serious part of a Journey, which if successful, creates a new status quo at a higher level of integration-integrity.

See if you agree. Do you perceive a difference between first-timers responding to their own Call vs. persons actively and consistently involved in exploring and redeeming their own Shadow?

Q: Any books on this contrast?

A: Yes. Dark Side of the Light Chasers, by Debbie Ford raises these issues. This book remains valuable.

If we can understand how separation can enter between individuals at different stages on a Heroes Journey, perhaps we can express more compassion and tolerance so we can support each other more.
