Overview & Content

Are you suffering from chronic fatigue, pain, anxiety, depression, overwhelm, and/or various sensitivities (light/chemicals/digestive)? Perhaps you are in the healthcare industry seeing complex cases that are difficult to treat? If so, this could be the right course for you!

The Conscious Healing course offer a holistic formula that promotes the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

This course is designed for individuals and professionals who seek additional information and knowledge related to the impact of trauma on the brain and body, often creating conditions of chronic pain and illnesses through mind body mechanisms (better known as Psychoneuroimmunology or PNI); and the strategies and interventions that can be used to effectively decrease this occurrence and break thought pattern cycles (often intergenerational) that are maintaining illness and pain in the body. Mindfulness techniques is only one of these interventions. The modules in this course are taken directly from Nickerson Institute’s Certified Integrative Mental Health Coach Training Program.

Trauma and stress are very closely related to chronic illnesses and pain. Most people are not aware that pain and illnesses become chronic because the psychological and emotional system keeps the entire body in a state of disharmony and ‘dis-ease’.  It is impossible for the body to heal when unresolved trauma causes stress hormones to constantly flood the body creating chronic inflammation, not to mention how it affects the organs in the body (including the brain), and the body’s inability to maintain a functioning immune system.  In sum, a mind-body connection keeps this cycle of illness and pain in constant circular motion.  

In particular, individuals with specific diseases tend to have certain thought and emotional patterns that can either cause or worsen physical conditions.  For example, cancer is very highly correlated with the tendency to experience generational guilt; helping clients become aware of this and providing them with tools to begin to change these long-standing beliefs, thought patterns, and chronic emotional conditions is crucial to their healing.
