Craig Weiner, D.C. discusses Meta Health emotion, trauma, life circumstances, and health through a Meta perspective, ACEs and EFT.
Who is Craig Weiner, DC ?
Dr. Craig Weiner, DC is a chiropractor and EFT trainer of trainers with EFT International. Together with his wife, Alina Frank, they have trained thousands in Emotional Freedom Techniques and Matrix Reimprinting (EFTMRA).
As a chiropractor and a certified Meta Health practitioner, Dr. Weiner brings this Meta health view to his patients in the level of inquiry, trying to find out and understand about the connection between what the patients’ body went through, the stress it takes, and its effect on their well-being or chronic health issues.
About Meta Health
Dr. Weiner looks at Meta Health on a wider perspective. It is an approach that has been used all over the world. It grew out of German New Medicine (GNM) developed by a German physician, Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer who himself had trauma after his son was killed. He eventually developed cancer which he knew was connected with his past trauma.
After his son’s demise, Dr. Hamer found out about the phenomenon of correlation between the types of traumas that people lived through with the types of conditions their bodies developed.
When Dr. Hamer developed GNM, the tapping community and practitioners realized that it is actually what they are trying to do to help people overcome their past traumatic event, thus, it makes sense why tapping is beneficial to one’s healing. Then it became more formalized as an approach through the tapping world and other types of modalities that is complementary to EFT and soon its next generation developed into Meta medicine, and now as Meta Health.
As we understand this phenomenon of the Biological Sociological connections there are many tools that we can use to help resolve, release or heal from the traumas we lived through.
ACEs or Adverse Childhood Experiences / early childhood trauma by the US CDC-Kaiser Study is a well-validated process on finding the connection of a child’s experiences/trauma with his behavior and physical health as an adult.
ACEs Study has uncovered that the present condition of an adult is correlated with his early trauma, even if it has a very large chronological gap and apparent only, decades later.
As the ACEs score increases, so does the number of risks for negative outcomes will be. There is now a growing awareness about this that is encouraging to discover one’s past trauma to help prevent future physical and psychological problems.
This developed the principles on Trauma Informed Care used within the school system, the penal system, and healthcare system and is making a difference in helping people understand trauma’s connection to a person’s health.
The body has its ways
“From a meta perspective, we look at disease as having meaningful and biological purposes.”
The body has its way to miraculously heal itself and it needs time to do so. Usually, it gives out a signal, to which we relate to as pain. If we try to shush it or not listen to it, we only doom the body to a serious or chronic disease. For instance, if a person thinks that his body is not working at its best, eventually, the body will do something to make the person slow things down. The person in pain will end up in an adversarial role with his own body, which will not provide the chances of the body to heal.
This is why a Meta Health practitioner should know how to at least help the patient to be less adversarial with their body, to aid with the process of healing.
As per Craig, a Meta approach or language always tells a lot, when he listens to the patient’s metaphors, he gets that there is a thematic connection with what the patient is going through physically and life events.
“One of the first things in the Meta Health inquiry is beginning to have that kind of inquiry and conversation with that body part, like “How is it feeling?” “What is it trying to tell me?” “What would it say, if I allow it to say anything.” This opens up a possibility of understanding what the person is really going through and how to address the issue properly, to point the person to the right method or tool to heal.
The body as a Dashboard
Craig’s advice is to look at the body as your “dashboard” this could be another way or means to check what happens before the chronic pain or disease.
Normally, the tissue has evolved from a healthy tissue until something disturbed it, (or in a Meta perspective that a traumatic moment happened), to which in the future will be triggered by stress. This will set the process into gear from stress trigger to stress phase, to steps to healing and regeneration phase.
If this process is understood like looking on a dashboard, it is easier to assess the condition or let the body take its natural course to heal. This also tells that when the body goes through all these stages it is only then that the symptoms show. When the body feels the pain and gets sick this means the stress phase is over and on its healing stage.
Meta Health is a tool to help better understand a condition, and where it all started. EFT can help release the stress brought about by trauma.
As per Craig, “there is a certain growing body of research that shows EFT has helped with a variety of chronic physical and mental health conditions, helping with the anxiety and with the depression and PTSD, although it still a long way yet from being validated in published studies”
