Why do we get symptoms of pain or sickness? Do you know there is a process that the body follows in creating a healing response. Have you ever been “sick” after a stressful event? Or do you get “sick” on vacation?

Our body’s innate intelligence follows a cycle to react to daily stressful events we experience so that we can stay healthy.

When we experience a stressful event, our body starts to react. It activates the sympathetic nervous system to go into a flight, fight, or freeze response. Generally, during this sympathetic state, you don’t feel any pain because your body is operating at a heightened emergency level. There are underlying changes in organ tissues to support you through this process. Once there is a solution the body begins the regeneration cycle where restoration and normalization of the organ tissue occurs. Then we switch to activating the parasympathetic nervous system.

We experience these different phases regularly.

For example, our body is mostly in a sympathetic state during the day to be awake, and then at night, we enter the parasympathetic state when we sleep. After a shocking and stressful event, however, the body stays in the sympathetic state until a solution occurs for the issue. The body then goes into the parasympathetic state. At night, if we’ve experienced a shock earlier in the day and continue in the sympathetic state, we may find that we can’t sleep well; we’ll toss and turn and sleep lightly, not getting a good restorative sleep.

While under stress, there is a growth of fungi, bacteria, or a virus that will generate but remain dormant until the regeneration phase. Microbes will be created in direct proportion to fix the tissues damaged during the stress stage.

Bacteria, viruses, and fungi produced during the stress phase support the actions of the regeneration phase depending on the type of tissue affected.

In some organ tiss

ues there is an increase in cell growth during the stress phase, so during the repair stage, the extra cells are eaten away by bacteria or fungi to return to homeostasis. So when you have extra bacterial or fungal imbalances it relates your need for a cleanup crew to come into your cells to get rid of extra cellular waste you produced during the stress stage.

Remember, we have ten times more microbes in our body than actual organ tissues. Each of these microbes has a function to help repair or rebuild tissues after a stress response. Viruses are brought into the cells to help in the rebuilding process.

So if you get the flu, it is because you need to strengthen your cells that were damaged earlier during the stress phase.

The regeneration phase generates “sick” symptoms of pain, congestion, edema, and fatigue as part of the healing process. We feel like we need to rest more, and we should, to keep the regeneration phase moving forward.

I believe it is essential to understand your symptoms and if you are in a stress or regeneration phase, so you can support yourself correctly. When doing the Limbic Stress Assessment testing we can discover your imbalances related to this healing process. The more support you give your body, the quicker it will move back to health.

What are you addicted to? [Summit Interview]

Discover new Lifestyle Prescriptions® Solutions for Addictions with Johannes R. Fisslinger, author of “The 6 Root-Cause(s) Of All Symptoms” hosted by Katori Noor from the Freedom from Addiction Summit.
Watch here.

So you might ask: Do I have addictions?

Yes, you do. It’s part of human nature and it would not be smart to run away from them because they are based on one of the key human behaviors.


It could be said that addictions are habits that have got out of control. Both habits and addictions result in the release of dopamine (the brain’s happy hormone); and this feeling of pleasure is what maintains the habit.

With addictions the difference is that we use them to suppress unwanted emotions or thoughts … and over time, your brain more and more requires the feeling you get from your vice to get the same response.

We are ‘hooked’ and even if we know this new habit is not good for us we have a hard time quitting.

Typical known and not so known addictions are:

  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Gambling
  • Sugar
  • Meat
  • Coke
  • Coffee
  • Sex
  • Co-dependency
  • Compulsive work
  • Smartphone
  • Facebook
  • Playing computer games
  • …..

When I told a friend a while ago “Dude, you are addicted to meat“. He said “No, I could stop anytime. I just don’t want too.” Well …

There’s a very simple method to find out if you’re addicted:
Don’t do it for 30 days!

What I mean is if the first thing you do in the morning is check your Facebook feed or if you need your daily coffee or your soft drink then STOP. Consciously decide to do or use something else instead. Replace that habit with another habit (how about meditating or yoga or jogging or drinking water or eating veggies instead).

If you have major withdrawal symptoms like anxiety or stress and after a few days you just have to ‘do’ it again then it sounds like an addiction.

Naturally, there are addictions that are much more damaging to ourselves and our surroundings; and as always make sure to talk to your primary health care provider.

The Addictive Automated Habit

Stopping an addiction can be not an easy task because your brain still craves the feeling your addiction gave you. It’s like our brain and body gets so used to the behavior, habit or substance that is “demands” it.

What makes habits so powerful and addictions so difficult to resolve is the fact that we don’t do all ‘this’ consciously but our unconscious, automatic ‘autonomic nervous system’ is taking over and ‘automates’ the stimulus-response behavior.

Positive thinking or talking about an addiction sometimes help but in most situations we need to re-educate our unconscious mind and our autonomic nervous system to react with a new habit.

Knowing how to find the root-cause(s) of addictions is essential and that’s why the first step of the 3-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Methods is so important:

1) Becoming aware of the root-cause trauma (triggers), emotions, beliefs and lifestyle habits which keep this chronic habit/addiction locked.

2)Second, reframing & decoding the intensity of the trigger and the associated emotion and belief using root-cause based interventions like our Quantum-Neuro-Biology Technique.

3) And most important we write Lifestyle Prescriptions® to help establish new healthy habits and build a sustainable win-win relationship with yourself.

The 3-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method

We’ve been asked many times what exactly is the Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method and what makes it so effective and unique when compared to regular health coaching?

After working with clients and teaching students for over 20 years I have found there are 3 main issues that we need to address, pretty much with every client or patient, to achieve the desired health outcomes:

  1. Root-cause(s) (addressing the cause and not just fixing symptoms)
  2. Health outcomes (coaching to achieve sustainable, repeatable results)
  3. Habit change (empower compliance instead of procrastination)

Our Lifestyle Prescriptions University students and graduates love the fact that we help them become experts in solving these 3 key issues.

Watch our upcoming LIVE WEBINAR: LIVE TRAINING: Health Coaching Made Easy with the 3-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method.

The 3-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method

When you or a client works with a Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coach or Specialist you’ll be guided through an awareness and transformation process like no other:

  1. Root-Cause Analysis
    First, you’ll discover your 6 Root-Causes (the WHY and HOW); exactly which specific stress trigger, emotion, belief & lifestyle habits are affecting your specific symptom; and where you are in the healing process (the 9 major points of phases of the self-healing). 
    You’ll be utterly surprised about the precision …

  2. Transformational Health Coaching
    Then you’ll learn highly effective, precision and root-cause based Lifestyle Prescriptions® Techniques & Protocols targeting your specific organ tissue symptom and focused on:
    ♥ Releasing unresolved emotional hurts
    ♥ Resetting unconscious stress triggers
    ♥ Reframing limiting beliefs into empowering ones
    ♥ Creating real-life habit changes to increase love and support
    ♥ Increasing strength and vitality through nutrition, fitness
    Transformation can happen instantly …

  3. Laser-sharp Lifestyle Prescriptions®
    You’ll receive a personalized and root-cause based Lifestyle Prescriptions® that engages you, increases awareness and helps you create new healthy lifestyle habits.
    Improving 1% per day means huge shifts over time …

The 10-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Root-Cause Analysis Process

Often we forget that to be able to use health coaching, therapy or transformational techniques effectively and achieve our client’s desired life and health goals we need to be precise in our initial analysis and know exactly the WHY and HOW.

That’s why our health coach specialists follow the 10-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Root-Cause Analysis Process, ask a few targeted questions and very quickly they can fill in the blanks:

1. Symptom & Location SUD …….
2. Wiredness LD ……………… RD ……….
3. Organ Tissue …………….. Brain Relay …………….. Conflict Theme ……………..
4. Acute or Chronic 
O Stress Phase …………….. Regeneration Phase ……………..

5. Emotion …………….. SUD …….
6. Stress Trigger …………….. SUD ……. VAKOGS  …………….. 
7. Belief …………….. SUD ……. 
8. Values …………….. SUD ……. 
9. Lifestyle O Nutrition ……….. O Fitness ……….. O Energy ………..
10. Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coach Plan ……………. …………….. ………….

Obviously this is only possible because we know exactly which specific conflict theme, beliefs, emotions and stress triggers are biologically connected to each organ tissue in our body and where in the healing process our client is right now … and most important which specific stress trigger is making this auto-regulation process into a chronic condition.

Join our upcoming webinar training and learn how to integrate the 3-Step Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method into your practice.

Are Spontaneous Regressions of Breast Cancer possible?

Today I read an article (scroll down for the article link, a webinar replay and a free consultation) and was inspired to write this article. My grandma had breast cancer and went through a horrendous experience that shaped her life in a powerful and negative way. It also affected me deeply and motivated me to find answers and solutions that go beyond the traditional methods.

As a Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coach and while teaching at Lifestyle Prescriptions University I’ve worked with hundred of therapists, health coaches and traditional medicine practitioners and I’ve seen how difficult it is even for health professionals to change old, limiting beliefs about what’s causing cancer (or any symptom for that matter) and what do do about it.

Emergency medicine, treating and managing our symptoms is essential and will always be there. But most of us would agree that we need to expand our health care system with a renewed focus on prevention and healthy living. This requires a clear understanding of the Art and Science of Self-Healing.

New evidence suggests that there’s more to the biochemical changes in our organs, tissue or cell. Science is starting to realize that our lifestyle, including what we eat, how well we exercise, how much we stress and our social environment determines our level of health and vitality.

The research is pretty clear by now.

The Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method

If we allow ourselves to view us as complex beings with a body, emotions, thoughts, life experiences and certain lifestyle habits then it becomes pretty obvious that these factors must play a role in the onset of symptoms and health in general (something we know by now through extensive research).

The HUGE difference to regular health coaching and Lifestyle, Integrative or Functional Medicine is that with Lifestyle Prescriptions® we realize there is a very specific (and I mean very, very specific) Organ-Mind-Brain Connection.

Every organ tissue in our body is affected and connected by very specific stress triggers, emotions, beliefs and lifestyle habits. There is nothing random about our body or the symptoms we experience.

It’s all about biology. But biology is not just a collection of organs or cells. Our body is a direct reflection of consciousness and is directly linked to our mind and reality.

The most life-enhancing and empowering factual belief we can integrate into our life is the inner knowing that our highly intelligent organism has an:

  • inherent capacity and tendency to auto-regulate and heal naturally.
  • that there are 6 Root-Cause(s) of symptoms.
  • and that our symptoms are actually part of an organ tissue going through very specific 9 points of phases of self-healing.

Trusting our body’s healing intelligence AND becoming aware of these root-causes AND taking conscious actions is what we focus on in Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coaching.

Because if you know the WHY and HOW, things change.

When you understand which specific types of stress, which specific unresolved emotional hurt or limiting and repetitive thoughts and beliefs or which lifestyle habits (toxic environment or people, lack of sleep or bad nutrition or exercise habits) are affecting a specific symptom then it’s so much easier to say “Yes I am ready to not just treat my symptoms or manage disease but rather explore changing my lifestyle habits and making the changes necessary for my body AND my life to change.”

Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coaching is really simple at its core:

  • Remove the blockages that prevent auto-regulation and self-healing
  • Increase awareness, vitality and strength in body and mind

Whenever I talk with cancer survivors I am inspired by their stories and how understanding WHY they developed breast symptoms (for example) was one of the most important AHA moments in their life which has enabled them to change their life and align more fully with their true values and life purpose.

Breast cancer can be perceived as a curse or as a miracle for renewal, healing and personal growth.

3 Self-Healing Myths debunked

Just last week one of our new Lifestyle Prescriptions® University students said: “If our body is a healing machine and constantly auto-regulates then why do we have to do anything? Shouldn’t our body heal naturally?”.

Good point.

Let me also address several common myths or beliefs about self-healing that we need to completely reframe.

1) Self-Healing means doing nothing.

I’ve heard many times that self-healing means doing nothing. We just let nature take its course. We trust.

Trusting our body’s healing intelligence is important but it does NOT mean we do nothing. That belief or mindset is totally wrong and actually the opposite is true.

Self-Healing means that there’s a innate and natural tendency of our organism to auto-regulate and move towards balance. Our job is to take conscious actions, to take the necessary steps to:

  • Remove whatever is blocking the self-healing process
  • Strengthen our body’s vitality, health and well-being

In my book “The 6 Root-Cause(s) Of All Symptoms” I explain more about this phenomenon … and lets face it if doing nothing would allow us to be well then we all would be in perfect health, right?

2) Symptoms will improve of their own accord.

Our biggest obstacle by far is procrastination.

We hope things get better.

We wait for a better time or a miracle to happen.

We experiment and try this and that without being fully aware of what’s really causing our symptoms or what’s blocking the auto-regulation process.

What would you prefer:

Hoping things get better or knowing specifically the WHY and HOW (root-causes) and having a clear plan to succeed?

3) We misinterpret symptoms

When clients come to us with back pain, fever, inflammation or skin eczema then usually the first thing we say is: “Congratulations! Your body is already in the regeneration phase.”

Usually clients are a bit shocked and ask what do you mean? How can you say this considering my symptoms.

Well, symptoms are part of a complex process and if we know that the pain back pain, fever, inflammation, skin eczema or many other symptoms are “signs” that the corresponding organ tissue switched already from the stress/sympathetic phase into the regeneration/parasympathetic phase.

Yes, it can be painful. But if we reframe the symptoms and know why we have symptoms, if we know the timeline and the process of self-healing for every single organ in our body we can start to build trust in our body and our inner knowing.

Healing becomes a science.

The Freedom of being a Lifestyle Prescriptions® Health Coach

We’ve not written much about the lifestyle freedom that becoming a health coach can give you and I wanted to address that.

If you’ve recently watched Johannes 3 part video series then you’ll already have a good understanding of how the Lifestyle Prescription® Method works. One of the massive benefits of these revolutionary, root-cause based protocols are that they work just as well via a video link as in person.

What this means is freedom.

Freedom from overheads and the expense of running an office, as many of our graduates have chosen, or location freedom which can really expand your horizons.

So what exactly is the Lifestyle Prescriptions® Method? Johannes has spend the last 20 years perfecting a step-by-step process to find the 6 root-cause(s) of all symptoms quickly and then use lifestyle prescription self-healing protocols to radically improve your own and clients health.

What we’re offering is an an entire health coaching system that can be used with any health issue, its straightforward, extremely precise, and it works. Because it’s so focused, it can be delivered from anywhere, so all you need to start your business is somewhere private to work with an internet connection – meaning you can start right away.

I have firsthand experience of location independence and of juggling a business alongside children and the demands of a busy life. So if the thought of running a mobile Lifestyle Prescription® Health Coaching business lights you up then please get in touch for a chat:

Lena Olsten from Sweden is a Thermobuzzer owner and one of our Lifestyle Prescriptions® students, she recently stepped out of her comfort zone and took a booth at a Health Fair in Stockholm.

Lena shared her experiences with us:

“I just had the ThermoBuzzer for 2.5 months but I stepped out of my comfort zone and with the help from Johannes, Emma and Cody, I took the step to attend the fair, called Harmoni Expo.

I offered a free ThermoBuzzer facial scan and a consultation in total 15 minutes. I was fully booked both days and had to say no to many who were interested.

The interest for ThermoBuzzer was enormous. In total during the fairs 2 days, me and my colleague met hundreds of people and I took ThermoBuzzer images of 65 people or more, whom I now can send offers and newsletter to.

The fair gave me confidence and such big learnings that I can take with me into being Health Coach. I urge you all to go out and showcase Your knowledge. You are AMAZING.”

Lena is so passionate about her work and deserves to succeed, but what made the difference was that she was willing to step out of her comfort zone and be visible, something we can all learn from.
