Alberto-4Years ago I was a medical anthropologist in the Amazon Rainforest with a research grant from a pharmaceutical company hoping to find the bark or root that could become the next great cancer cure. After all, the jungle is nature’s pharmacy, filled with exotic plants whose powers have yet to be discovered. I spent many months canoeing to villages that had seldom seen a white man and wherever I went, I found there was no cancer, dementia, or heart disease, even among the elders of the communities. Clearly, the indigenous people of the area knew something about health that we westerners didn’t know. What was their secret?

energy1Shamanic energy medicine upgrades the quality of the LEF and instructs your molecules, your cells, and your genes to create health. The LEF can be thought of as the software that informs your DNA -the hardware- to repair your body. Ordinarily, your LEF creates your health (and your emotions) according to the instructions inherited from your parents. It replicates the heart conditions, the breast conditions, and the emotional dramas that cut across generations. We continue to live out our family’s health and psychological dramas, to live the way they lived, and die the way they died. We can change this! Though the Illumination process you can switch off the genes that create pathology and erase the imprints of disease from the LEF.

You will learn how our brains have been damaged by toxins, heavy metals, and stress, and how to repair this damage so that you can attain the clarity necessary to create psychosomatic health.
