SUCCESS MASTERY Neuroscience of Achievement

We just completed the 16th run of my premier programme, Success Mastery.

We invited a select group of 21 individuals to a 4 day island retreat.

In my experience of working with 15,000 individuals over 35 years, we identified core traits of high-performance individuals. They could be C-suite executives, CEOs and ultrahigh net worth individuals. The most common traits they all had were

  1. They worked on their mindset and emotional healing.
  2. They developed sustainable lifestyles and resilience.
  3. They were committed to lifelong learning, growth and neuroplasticity.
  4. They were committed to doing what it took to do all the above on a daily basis.

So based on our research, we developed a model based on Neuroscience, Biochemical and Emotional Epigenetics, Family Therapy and Systems Approach. The most common issues our clients faced were:

a) Dysfunctional family scripts due to neglect and trauma that limited them physically, emotionally or financially. This could lead to breakdowns, relationship issues or financial crisis.

b) Not recognizing how the brain changes in its patterns of achievement with ageing.

c) External triggers activating their negative emotional and biochemical epigenetics.

d) Not having a sustainable mind body sequence of habits.

e) Inadequate or poor planning due to not taking above factors into consideration.

We had one CEO, Saran who had started working with me almost 15 years ago. Saran had gone to 6 doctors in Malaysia, 15 years ago and asked them, “I am currently not sick. Can you keep me well?”.

Saran said they had looked at him as if he was deranged. Saran was sharing with me how appreciative he was for the processes he had been doing with me. Saran had been noticing quite a few of his fellow CEOs, crashing, collapsing and dying.

Their companies which had been valued in the millions, were sold for the scrap metal value. Saran in contrast remains, well and healthy and has gone on to start even more companies. Saran’s companies are currently valued at eight figures and growing.

Another CEO of a start-up who flew in from South Africa, discovered during the program why the goals she had set did not materialize due to factors a) to e).

Many individuals wax lyrical about mindset, sustainable lifestyles, resilience, lifelong learning and commitment. The graduates of Success Mastery actually learn how to incorporate all this into 15- minute chunks into their day. Otherwise, nothing really takes. Its just hot air and platitudes.    

I am delighted to congratulate those who attended the programme and look forward to seeing their future progress in life.

Your Secret Enemy that Undermines your Life

Did you know that recent research published by Harvard Medical School showed that “bottling up” trauma from your past – no matter how mild or seemingly insignificant – is linked to chronic health conditions later in life?

The list of common symptoms associated with these conditions is dizzying to say the least – it includes things like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Lack of focus/concentration
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Cancer
  • Obesity
  • Fatigue
  • Hair loss

And much more…

The really interesting thing about trauma is the ways it affects different people. Two people can go through the exact same experience but feel something completely different.

What’s most concerning though is that lots of people don’t even realize they’ve stored these things away inside of them – and left unaddressed, it can make a person sick!

Even worse, traumatic experience tend to bioaccumulate in the body – so the risk for psychological & physical health problems increases dramatically the more traumatic events you’ve experienced. https://www.yourmindstrategy.com/LIVE/events/success-permission/)

If any of this sounds familiar to you, then it’s time to learn about one of the most overlooked contributors to chronic illness…  TRAUMA

Worldwide, mental health issues have nearly tripled in the past few years.

Many of us are underliving our potential because of the retained effects of early life trauma, whether mental, emotional or physical which often leads to negative thoughts and negative neuroplasticity. (https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/neuroplasticity)                               

This shows itself most obviously as chronic physical illness which prevents us from freely exercising choices, but more insidiously in sub-clinical dysfunctional patterns such as poor immunity, lack of energy, lack of confidence, anxiety and fearfulness.

Illness, rather than being viewed entirely negatively, can become a creative tool for sorting out our lives and redesigning our futures. To achieve this, we need an approach which enables us to listen to and learn from both mind and body. Most healthcare approaches separate mind and body – either physical therapy or psychotherapy, the body hospital or the mind hospital.

We know however that a radical change in physical health, whether for the better or the worse, is invariably accompanied by profound mental change. We also know from studies of behaviour and body language that the reverse is equally true – a major change in mental perspective is always accompanied by a change in body activity, posture and movement.

Which is why we want to offer you solutions because we know how debilitating, frustrating, and lonely it can feel when you’re struggling with Trauma

The basis of SomatoEmotional Release® (SER) and other somatic therapies that facilitate emotional and physical healing is that people sometimes retain an emotional experience physically, leading to loss of flexibility in an organ and/or local connective tissue with resultant impairment of function and possible pathology. Working hands-on – sometimes assisted by dialogue, sometimes not – it is often possible to facilitate the release of the affected tissue concurrently with resolution of the associated emotional issue. We have 30 years of experience of helping people process trauma and trauma related illnesses. https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/emotional-healing

Is toxic mould slowly destroying your family’s health?

Are you finding yourself wondering why you continue to be sick despite all your efforts to improve your health and wellness? The answer to this common question may lie in an often overlooked but pervasive health threat: mould toxicity. https://blog.drsundardas.com/allergic-bronchopulmonary-aspergillosis-quote/

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences: Mold

In modern construction, materials such as drywall and wallpaper create the perfect environment for mould growth. This results in the release of mycotoxins, which can have severe consequences on overall health by interfering with the body’s hormonal balance.

Mould toxicity manifests in a wide range of symptoms, making it challenging to diagnose. From anxiety and depression to joint pain and skin irritation, the effects of mould exposure can be debilitating. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 individuals are hypersensitive to mould, further emphasizing the importance of awareness and prevention. Asia hot, humid and damp climate aggravates this issue.

Recently, one of my clients encountered first-hand the insidious nature of mould toxicity within her home. A seemingly minor issue with her HVAC system led to a significant mould infestation, resulting in various health concerns for herself and her family.

Her children kept experiencing persistent respiratory and other health issues for apparently no reason. When we tested them, we identified mould as the culprit. This experience highlighted the importance of vigilance and prompt action when it comes to addressing mould issues. https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/bioresonancebicom

It’s crucial to educate yourself about the dangers of mould toxicity. Here are some key steps to consider:

  1. Awareness: Be vigilant for symptoms of mould toxicity in yourself and your clients, especially if they describe unexplained health issues.
  2. Prevention: Take proactive measures to prevent mould growth, such as maintaining indoor humidity levels below 50% and addressing any leaks or water damage promptly.
  3. Detection: Consider testing for mould in environments where individuals may be at risk, such as homes, offices, and healthcare facilities.
  4. Treatment: In cases of mould exposure, prompt action is essential. This may include remediation efforts to remove mould and mycotoxins from the environment, as well as supportive therapies to address symptoms and promote healing. https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/homoeopathy

Mould toxicity is a pervasive yet often overlooked health concern. By raising awareness and taking proactive measures, we can help mitigate the risks associated with mould exposure and ensure the well-being of ourselves and our clients.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. Together, we can work towards creating healthier environments for all.

Are You Poisoning Your Brain?

Did you know that by simply breathing, using a common skin lotion, or sleeping on a certain type of mattress you might be harming your brain? The 3-pound supercomputer between your ears is the most metabolically active organ in your body. As such, it is vulnerable to damage from toxins.

Toxins are one of the major causes of psychiatric issues, but traditional psychiatrists almost completely ignore them. In part, that’s because they rarely look at the organ they treat—the brain.

Toxins are one of the major causes of psychiatric issues, but traditional psychiatrists almost completely ignore them. In part, that’s because they rarely look at the organ they treat—the brain.

The brain-imaging work with SPECT reveals that toxic brain patterns are common in people with addictions to alcohol or drugs. Surprisingly, these same patterns can also be seen in people who aren’t substance abusers. Why do their brains look so bad?

How toxins take a toll on mental health

Research shows that environmental toxins—such as toxic mould, inhalants, and pollution—are often to blame for unhealthy brain function.

Environmental toxins impact nearly every aspect of your body and can damage the brain, leading to a variety of physical and mental health symptoms. From a psychiatric standpoint, exposure to toxins can increase the risk of:

On the physical side, issues can include:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Fatigue
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Tremors
  • Allergies
  • Abdominal pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Smelly stools
  • Bad breath
  • Weight issues
  • Skin rashes
  • Sweats

Our biological systems get rid of toxins (through the gut, liver, kidneys, and skin), but when those natural detoxification processes are overwhelmed, it can cause problems in the brain.

Reducing or eliminating your exposure to the toxins is the first step to healing your brain and regaining control of your life. To perform a brain detox, following these steps:

  • Clear out any toxin-laden household cleaning products.
  • Toss out personal care products that contain toxins.
  • Stop buying foods that filled with artificial chemicals.
  • Limit your intake of alcohol.
  • Avoid marijuana and other drugs.

By decreasing your exposure to toxins, you can help restore your brain function and may reduce mental health symptoms.

Podcast on Mindfulness and Minimalism: http://yourlifebydesignpodcast.com/podcast/

Meditation has many benefits, including lowering stress, improving immune function, and slowing mental aging. This age-old practice has become one of the most popular ways to relieve stress among people of all walks of life. Meditation can take many forms and can be combined with many spiritual practices. It can also be used in several important ways

  • It can be a part of your daily routine and help you build resilience to stress.
  • It can be a technique to get centred when you’re thrown off by emotional stress. ?
  • It can be a quick-fix stress reliever to help you reverse your body’s stress response and physically relax.

Meditation can :

  • Reduce the symptoms of anxiety: Meditation can help to reduce the symptoms of anxiety, including racing thoughts, feelings of panic, and physical tension.
  • Increases mindfulness: By practicing mindfulness meditation, you can learn to observe your thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them. This can help you to feel more in control and less overwhelmed.
  • Improve sleep: Anxiety can make it difficult to sleep, but meditation has been shown to improve sleep to help you feel more rested.
  • Enhance relaxation: When you meditate, your body releases feel-good hormones like serotonin and dopamine, which can help you to feel more relaxed and calm.
  • Boost resilience: Regular meditation practice can help you to build resilience and cope better with the ups and downs of life.

Meditation has also been documented to increase neuroplasticity.

Neuroplasticity, also known as neural plasticity, or brain plasticity, is the ability of neural networks in the brain to change through growth and reorganization. It is when the brain is rewired to function in some way that differs from how it previously functioned.

(https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/neuroplasticity)                               

Your physical and emotional stress can melt away by learning to calm your body and mind. This leaves you feeling better, refreshed, and ready to face the challenges of your day with a healthy attitude. With regular practice over weeks or months, you can experience even greater benefits.

Maintain your Spine

So what is it that drives us to invest our own time and spend our money on dental care? Although the answers to this question may vary slightly from person to person, the following reasons would most often be quoted:

  • To prevent dental cavities and the need for tooth extraction
  • To avoid the discomfort of toothache
  • To prevent bad breath
  • To prevent gum disease and more serious related health problems

Dental care is a serious business: nobody wants to suffer with breath odour, gum disease or the loss of teeth through decay. Perhaps we consider dental care all the more important because keeping our teeth beautiful and our breath fresh has an impact on others as well as ourselves.

Now let’s turn to a part of our anatomy which generally, we pay far less attention to, at least until problems occur – the spine. While we live in fear of toothache and dental problems, many of us don’t even think about spinal health until sports injuries, auto accidents or the onset of chronic back pain force us to seek pain management and curative therapy. https://www.sundardasnaturopathy.com/painfree

Well, that exact same rule applies to your spine!

If we were to focus half as much on maintaining our spines, as we do on our teeth, we’d be a far healthier world population. Yet despite the fact that the spine is critical to mobility and protects our delicate central nervous systems, spinal care tends to occupy our attention only when episodes of neck or lower back pain strike. Even then, I feel sure you’re more likely to rush to the dentist at the first sign of toothache, than you are to seek attention at the first twinge of back pain.

While gum disease can lead to serious health deterioration, problems with your spine are potentially more damaging and can lead to long term incapacitation and in the worst cases, paralysis. Nobody wants to lose their teeth, but in the worst case, implants and dentures can serve as effective replacements. There is no replacement for a seriously damaged spine.

Millions of people worldwide live with the misery of chronic back pain, yet this doesn’t need to be the case. While it’s impossible to rule out spinal damage from auto accidents or similar events, a lifetime program of preventative spinal care can save you from degenerative disc disorders and other conditions which arise from simple wear and tear.

How to protect your spine – for life:

Spinal care and teeth care are not so dissimilar. As you limit the amount of sugary foods you eat and brush your teeth regularly, you can protect your spine by practicing safe lifting techniques and performing back strengthening exercises. As you can enlist the help of a dental practice to check your teeth and head off problems before they occur, so you can get help from an osteopath to keep your spine in alignment and deal with small problems before they become big ones.

In fact, regular visits to your osteopath can be beneficial not just for preventative spinal care, but also for your general wellness. That’s why it pays to begin a regular program of chiropractic visits even if you have never suffered with back or neck pain. Regular osteopathic treatments and counselling can help you to avoid illness and injuries as well as improving your overall quality of life. https://blog.drsundardas.com/are-you-ageing-prematurely/

When you visit your dental care provider, you know you are investing in the brightness of your smile, the freshness of your breath and the longevity of your teeth. When you visit your osteopath, you are investing in the preservation of your spine and central nervous system, that’s why you should prioritize the maintenance of your spine just as highly, if not more so, than the maintenance of your teeth.

Here at Sundardas Naturopathic Clinic (SNC), you’ll find a team of healthcare experts, including certified and highly talented naturopaths and osteopaths, who are committed to your long-term wellness.

Is Your Nervous System Running You Down?

You may have heard that rates of stress, anxiety, and depression have skyrocketed over the past few years.

Central Nervous System (CNS) conditions are the number one of disease now according to the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (USA) (IHME)

In a 2021 Study, 43% of world population or 3.4 B people over 204 countries /territories are affected. From 1990 to 2021 there was as 59% increase in CNS issues. Some of the 37 CNS issues include: headaches, migraines, strokes, dementia. These are now considered more significant than heart disease.

DALYs- Disability adjusted life years model. Using this model 443 million years are lost due to CNS issues.

And you may be aware that the latest research shows that things like dementia and Alzheimer’s are now being diagnosed in people as young as 30. If you’re concerned about your brain health and want more energy and focus or you want to protect yourself from degenerative brain diseases. This is what you need to consider…

Is your fatty liver shortening your life span?

If type 2 diabetes had a cousin, it would be NAFLD – Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease. It’s a mouthful, but it’s important to understand what it is and why it’s so dangerous, if you can about your metabolic health.

There’s always some fat flowing in and out of the liver. In fact, the liver makes fat, glucose, fructose, and other compounds, and packages fat for distribution throughout the body.

Sometimes, however, the liver can get over-run with fat. This leads to inflammation,insulin resistance, damage to the liver cells, and can become NAFLD and lead to type 2diabetes.

Right now, at least 30% of people in the US and Europe have NAFLD and the number is growing quickly. The build-up of fat in the liver is a form of “energy toxicity” and comes from obesity, over-consumption of fructose, over-eating, lack of physical activity, and high blood insulin levels.

Fatty liver can be detected through imaging and bloodwork. Imaging includes MRI, Ultrasound, and CT scans, measuring the amount of fat in the liver. Blood work includes what are often termed “liver enzymes”, such as alanine aminotransferase test (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase test (AST), and Gamma glutamyl transferace (GGT).

Fatty liver can progress through four stages:

• Fatty liver: A build-up of extra fat in the liver

• Steatohepatitis: Inflammation in the liver in addition to accumulating fat

• Fibrosis: Scarring in the liver from the chronic inflammation

• Cirrhosis: Liver scarring which leads to pathological changes

Once Cirrhosis forms, there will likely be permanent damage, which can be life threatening.

What causes NAFLD?

Junk food: A diet rich in processed and refined carbohydrates, which typically includes a high amount of fructose, leads to increased fat production and storage in the liver.

Overeating: When you consume more energy, in the form of fat and carbohydrates, than you burn, the excess energy can get trapped in the liver, leading to a build-up of fat.

Insulin Resistance: Resistance to the hormone insulin leads to elevated blood levels of

Visceral Fat: Having an “apple shape”, or central adiposity with an elevated waist-to-height ratio, increases the risk for NAFLD.

Chronic Inflammation: While some inflammation is normal, chronic systemic inflammation from toxins, gut dysbiosis, poor diet, or infections leads to insulin resistance and may contribute to NAFLD.

Inactivity:  Exercise is a great way to burn extra energy, including fat from the body. Sedentary lifestyles leads to more energy toxicity and a greater risk of fatty liver.

Strategies To Help Protect and Heal the Liver

Reduce or Eliminate Refined Sugar and Processed Carbs: Researchers have found that almost twice as much liver fat comes from carbohydrates in the diet rather than fat. The liver converts sugar, especially fructose to triglycerides in a process called do novo lipogenesis.

Eat Less and Burn More Fat: The most important way to rid the liver of extra fat accumulation is to reverse energy toxicity by burning the stored body fat. Weight loss is important, but what’s even more important is fat loss.

Try a Low Carb, Ketogenic, Mediterranean Diet: The Mediterranean diet, including healthy proteins, olive oil, and vegetables, has long been praised for its cardiometabolic benefits.

Get More Physical Activity: Regular exercise can significantly reduce the amount of fat in and around the liver.

Supplements: The most important supplements for the liver protect liver cells, reduce oxidative stress, and increase fat burning in the liver. These include Milk Thistle, N-Acetyl Cysteine, Fibre, Burdock Root, Berberine, and high-dose omega 3 fatty acids.

We have a comprehensive programme for dealing with fatty liver.

Are you ageing prematurely?

Have you noticed that as people age, they develop an abnormal head forward posture? What is shocking is that with the advent of modern handphone and laptop devices the population with forward head posture is getting younger and younger.  Did you know that when you bend your neck forward at varying angles the amount of pressure on the neck multiplies? 

Research studies show varying percentages of patients presenting with forward head posture.  One research study performed in 2020 shows that 73% of university students present with forward head posture (Singh, Kaushal, & Jasrotia, 2020).  Other studies show a prevalence of 67% among university students (Ramalingam & Subramaniam, 2019) and 63% among adolescents ages 12 to 16 years of age (Verma et al., 2018). 

Symptoms of Forward Head Posture

If you have forward head posture, you may be experiencing these symptoms, or can develop these symptoms later on:

  • Neck pain: your neck feels tight or stiff
  • Shoulder tightness: your shoulders feel tight, especially after a long day of work
  • Headaches: you may experience headaches that can start in your neck and go up to your head
  • Migraines: heightened sensitivity combined with poor posture may result in a migraine
  • Jaw pain: you may experience clicking of your jaw or pain in the jaw
  • Pain down your arm: you may experience pain that radiates from your neck down your arm to your hand

How Can Forward Head Posture Affect Your Health?

If forward head posture is left uncorrected, it may impact your health in multiple ways.  For example, forward head posture may be a contributing factor to these health affects:

  • Decreased neck range of motion: neck stiffness with difficulty moving your head to one side or the other.
  • Respiratory dysfunction: long-term respiratory dysfunction can result in hyperventilation, mouth breathing, laboured chest breathing, and stress to your body.
  • TMJ dysfunction: the temporomandibular joint is the joint in your jaw to open and close your mouth.  Forward head posture may impact your jaw.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: pain in your wrist and hand can occur from spending many hours typing while sitting in poor posture. 
  • Impaired balance: the position of your neck impacts how your body balances upright.  With forward head posture you have increased risk of falling.

Prevention Strategies

Simple switches to your posture habits can help you prevent postural distortion patterns.  Focusing on improving your back, neck, and head posture to prevent forward head posture.  A postural distortion pattern in one quadrant of your body can impact the alignment of the rest of your body. 

We have helped some clients avoid spinal surgery with these approaches. Don’t delay.

Treatment Options

Postural correction treatment plans consist of 3 primary components: (1) Spinal Alignment (2) Posture Rehabilitation and (3) Posture Habit Re-Education. 

This comprehensive program of postural correction will help you achieve a posture transformation to look better, move better, and feel better.

Why people experience emotional breakdowns?

We are seeing an increasing amount of mental health issues in the wake of COVID 19. This has become such a major issue that Singapore is actually going to ramp up the number of psychologists available. Here we will look at our significant experience of working in this area for the last thirty-five years and identifying what you can do to protect yourself.   

Exploring Causes and Triggers of Emotional Breakdowns

Understanding the causes and factors that contribute to emotional breakdowns is pivotal in managing its impact on mental health. Several lifestyle and environmental factors can trigger and perpetuate breakdowns. These include:

1. Poor Diet: Processed foods, excessive sugar, unhealthy fats, and food sensitivities can all contribute to chronic inflammation. Research shows that a diet high in refined carbohydrates and saturated fats can aggravate stress response.

2. Sedentary Lifestyle: Lack of physical activity has been associated with increased stress levels. Regular exercise, on the other hand, has been shown to reduce stress.

3.Epigenomics: Epigenomics studies involve a set of chemical modifications not encoded within DNA, which orchestrate how and when genes are expressed. In other words, the study of epigenomics explores heritable, reversible modifications of DNA and chromatin that do not change primary nucleotide sequences. Some people have biochemical and emotional epigenetic tendencies that can be triggered by nutritional deficiencies and challenging lifestyle choices and precipitate a breakdown

4. Chronic Stress: Stress triggers the release of stress hormones, which can trigger an emotional breakdown.

5. Unresolved Trauma: Unresolved trauma from early childhood can trigger potential breakdowns later on in life.

Interventions to reduce breakdown triggers and manage them:

Thankfully, we possess a range of interventions that can help reduce breakdowns. Here are some evidence-based strategies:

1. Balanced Diet: Embrace an anti-inflammatory diet comprising fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids.

2. Regular Exercise: Engaging in moderate-intensity exercise for at least 30 minutes most days of the week can significantly stress and support emotional regulation..

3. Correcting dysfunctional epigenomics: Doing gene testing to identify epigenetic triggers and designing a lifestyle and nutrigenomic program to address it.

4. Stress Management Techniques: Incorporate stress reduction techniques into your routine, such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing exercises, and regular relaxation practices. These activities can help alleviate chronic stress

4. Adequate Sleep: Sleep deprivation or poor sleep quality can trigger breakdowns. Prioritize good sleep hygiene for a minimum of 7-8 hours of quality sleep each night.

5. Trauma Therapy: Doing emotional and psychological interventions to address the roots of this trauma.

We recently had a senior executive who developed disabling anxiety attacks. They were so severe that he would have to stop his car on the highway because he was unable to cope. By identifying his triggering factors precisely and making targeted nutrigenomic interventions and basic mindfulness techniques, his disabling condition was significantly reduced in 12 weeks.   

Conclusion

Addressing causes and triggers that precipitate breakdowns is key to preventing and managing emotional breakdowns. By adopting a lifestyle encompassing a nutrigenomic regime, regular exercise, stress management, trauma therapy (if required) and quality sleep, we can improve our overall health and well-being. Let us embrace the power of self-care and take charge of our long-term health by managing our life quality effectively.

Remember, always consult a qualified healthcare practitioner before making any significant changes to your lifestyle or implementing new interventions.
