GNM

GNM is a paradigm that explains HOW PHYSIOLOGY WORKS in relation to OUR EXPERIENCES (particularly those unexpected shock experiences that took us totally off guard when we were young) and PATTERNS IN THE BRAIN (which are visible on CT scans). The patterns and responses are universal throughout both humans and the animal kingdom.

This is a very brief summary of GNM. If you are interested, please ask Dr. Rodgers for more information and details. You can also visit www.newmedicine.ca

When we have an experience which completely takes us off guard and for which we are not prepared (referred to as a 'conflict'), a spherical target ring visible on a CT scan* becomes imprinted in our brain. The location of the ring depends on the meaning of the experience to our psyche and the biological meaning of the body organ related that experience. (In other words, a shock experience involving seeing/not seeing something would affect your eyes not your legs, and a shock experience of not being able to run away or towards something would affect your legs, not your eyes.) The target rings sit dormant in the brain until a second experience of the same type or of the same emotional content happens. Then it becomes active and begins to affect the body physiology.

*The target ring on the scan can be mapped out in its 3-dimentional sphere. Standard radiologists say it is an artifact of the machine. But it is site consistent for that brain, can be viewed at different angles, does not alter from one machine to the next. It also takes a good deal of training to be able to adequately discern them for diagnostics.

When the conflict we experience is resolved in our psyche, (i.e. in the example above with our legs, we realize we can now run when needed), the target ring in the brain begins a healing process which then begins the healing process in the body physiology. Viewing of a CT scan by a trained eye can see where there are target rings and which are in active conflict or in healing phase. This process happens spontaneously in both humans and in animals out in nature all the time.

While we are developing as an embryo, there are 3 primary layers which later develop into different categories of our body. There is the inside ring (endoderm), middle ring (mesoderm), and outside ring (exoderm). The meaning we conclude in our various conflict shocks will determine which layer of body physiology is affected. The layer affected determines where and when the symptoms will appear. NOTE: Some symptoms appear during the active conflict period while other symptoms appear during the healing phase. Determining what your symptoms are expressing is an important part to understanding what to do.

While the healing process is initiated spontaneously all the time, the process can also be approached clinically. For more information, please call Dr. Rodgers, or schedule an appointment and put in the notes that you would like a GNM session so she can adjust the time for the visit. After the first visit ($100 for 1-1/2 to 2 hours), follow up visits usually also require 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Some issues are easily resolved in a visit; other more complex issues require more work.
