Healing Depression


I’m Dr. Carolee Johnson, with Quantum Techniques, the most cutting edge, healing system in the world. I want to talk about Neuroplasticity, which is a new QT scan that has been tremendously helpful for many people already. Donald Hebb, an early pioneer of Neuroplasticity and Neuropsychology, famously said, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” And then, Dr. Michael Resnick, now recognized as perhaps the world’s most renowned neuroscientist, built on Hebb’s words, proving that the relationship between our thoughts, neurons firing, and structural changes in the brain, wire together. Among Dr. Resnick’s numerous discoveries, the one that may be the most important is your experiences, behaviors, thinking habits, thought patterns, and ways of reacting to the world, are inseparable from how your brain wires itself.

Negative habits change your brain for the worse, and positive habits change your brain for the better. At Quantum Techniques, we have the ability to test the body and find past traumas and negative programming that has caused the negative wiring in the brain, which creates that rut of negative patterns that are so difficult to get out of. Once negative beliefs driven by the trauma are brought to consciousness, it’s so much easier to rewire the brain for positive thinking and joy. Clearing the neuroplasticity issues, or the ruts in the brain, helps to heal illness.

Alex Korb, the author of Upward Spiral, uses Neuroscience to reverse the course of depression one small change at a time. In depression, there’s nothing really fundamentally wrong with the brain. It’s just that the particular tuning of neural circuits creates a tendency towards a pattern of depression, and it has to do with the way the brain deals with stress, planning, habits, decision-making, and many other things. Often it starts in childhood, with harsh events, specific traumas, or something that you’re really angry about, and you don’t realize that it has gone into your unconscious because you were unable to let go of it at the time it occurred. Then, when anything re-triggers it, that rut of sadness, self-blame, or whatever it is, gets you back to that same negative pattern in your brain.

Once a pattern starts to form, it causes a dozen tiny changes throughout the brain that creates a downward spiral, or what we call a rut. These things are foundational to depression. Your thoughts create a certain chemistry, that makes you feel bad, which drives more negative thinking, which causes more chemical reactions in the brain, and it becomes a really vicious cycle of negativity, and complaining, or you’re just hurting on the inside.

We all know about that one person who’s continually negative. That one person who, never seems to be satisfied with anything, or anyone. Most likely, they’ve been hurt in the past, and they don’t really know how to fix it. Negative people are almost always complainers, and worse, complainers aren’t really satisfied in keeping their thoughts and feelings to themselves. Instead, they’ll seek out some unwilling participant and vent on them and slime them to the point that it becomes difficult for the recipient of the barrage to stay positive. With some effort, you can stay on the high road, and I can help with that by using QT.

We all complain from time to time. In fact, researchers from Clemson University, demonstrated that everyone grumbles on occasion. Some just do it a lot more often than others. Complainers generally fall into three categories. 1) There’s attention seeking complainers – people who want attention and always talk about how they’ve got it worse than everyone else. That’s the filter that they see everything through; they feel like they’re a victim, i.e. – poor me. 2) Then you have your chronic complainers – these folks live in a constant state of complaint. It’s a deep seeded habit and it’s their way of dealing with the world. If they’re not voicing their ‘woe is me’ attitude, they’re probably thinking about it. Psychologists term this as compulsory behavior rumination, defined as repetitively going over a thought or a problem, without completion. Ruminating is unfortunately, directly related to depression and anxiety. 3) Then there’s the low emotional understanding complainers – these people aren’t really interested in your perspective, thoughts or feelings. They just need a sounding board, and it’s a loop that they’re trying to work  through unconsciously. What they really need, is to have an old trauma healed, so that they can move on.

Is the brain to blame? Well, the answer is mostly yes. The issue has become a rut in the brain, and it’s usually driven by a heart that’s in pain. When we make that connection, and clear the negative beliefs, and the self-sabotage that drove the original creation of that rut, then we can clear it and change the pattern so that you can walk away feeling like your load is lighter, and the world is a good place again. With QT we accomplish this by going into past traumas and the beliefs that drive the negative pattern, and clear those things so that you can be happy again.

About Dr. Carolee Johnson N.D., M.H.

Thanks to Quantum Techniques she feels she can do a much more complete job in healing. My Personal Testimony: I struggled with my health nearly all my life. After giving birth to my last child, my health completely failed, and the future looked grim. I started working with natural healing after going to doctors and finding that they could do nothing for me. I cured myself of uternine turmors with herbs, live nutrition, hydrotherapy, clean air and sunshine. I also strengthened my ailing heart and kidneys the same way. However, I never regained my strenth and vitality until I met an angel straight out of heaven named Beth Daniel... and then my fortune changed! Quantum Techniques allowed me to find the underlying cause to the constant fatigue and the kidney and heart trouble that never would completely heal. When I came to Quantum Techniques for treatment, I was much too thin and still very weak. I had already tried everything else including other alternative methods and raw food. These natural methods were very helpful, but something was definitely missing. Being able to find the underlying causes made all the difference in regaining complete health and strength, and getting back to normal weight. I was also able to finally rest from the constant bouts of anxiety that had plagued me. Now instead of lying in bed feeling weak and miserable and scared, I enjoy hiking and swimming in natural hot springs with my husband and children, and running a cattle ranch on the desert's modern wild west along the old Pony Express Trail.
