EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Mission: To reduce veteran suicides by 80%. Over twenty-two veterans per day take their own lives leaving grieving families and the perpetration of more suicides within the family unit.

Goal: To infuse each client with self-restructured patterns of behavior that affords them a holistic, fruitful, and prosperous life.

Method: Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) is a new, non-linear, sequencing model for getting to the core of repetitive behaviors. The CR process bypasses conscious and sub-conscious mental and emotional blocks while keeping the client fully present as an observer,

Process: Certified CR Practitioners (CRP) ask a set of preset questions and note client physical reactions and verbal responses. They look for missing, odd, or can’t be remembered information to uncover the core block driving their client’s negative repetitive behaviors without using hypnosis or pharmaceuticals.
Time Frame and Fee: CR’s non-invasive, results oriented program is parsed over thirty days with periodic follow-ups over the course of a year. The fee is roughly equivalent to twelve traditional therapy visits and payment schedules are tailored to fit client resources.

Scope: CR identifies and diffuses repressed foundational psychosomatic and traumatic, memory events which trigger uncontrollable emotional behavior. Behaviors can include, but are not limited to, PTSD, sexual trauma, Suicide Ideation, failure to quit smoking, failed relationships, procrastination, self-sabotage, alcoholism, weight-loss.

History: Evolutionary Healer, LLC developed Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR and introduced it starting in February, 2010. We are now helping clients, through its certified practitioners, in twelve countries on five continents via Skype, phone, and email, to erase ‘roadblocks’ and attain a productive, successful lifestyle.

INTRODUCTION

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one of the top ten disorders affecting America today and is a consistently co-morbid to other high prevalence mental disorders – National Institute of Mental Health, “The Numbers Count: Mental Disorder in America.” http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/publications/the-numbers-count-mental-disorders-in-america/index.shtml#PTSD. Approximately 7.7 million American adults age 18 and older, or about 3.5 percent of people in this age group in a given year, have PTSD. (Citation) USA Today, National News “Mental illness holding troops back” (USA Today, September 26, 2013) Gregg Zoroya and Meghan Hoyer reported “Post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and other mental illnesses accounted for more days spent by troops in the hospital than any other medical condition in the military in 2012, including war wounds, injuries and illness (Citation) According to Pentagon data,” 49.6% of these hospital days were due to diagnosed mental disorders. Evolutionary Healer, LLC has created an innovative and effective method that has in its preliminary cased shown to treat PTSD quickly and safely.

PTSD is the central repetitive behavior disorder currently under the study and research by Evolutionary Healer (EH), LLC. EH has created and developed a new protocol for bypassing normal means of memory recall by the use of the five senses instead of conscious/subconscious synchronization or normal thought recall. We believe this occurs at the cellular level of memory only now being studied world-wide in clinical trials. (Citation) It is accepted that thoughts are, at least initially, stored in the cerebral cortex of the brain. It is given that memory recall is accomplished by using the same neural pathways each time the memory is retrieved. When an event occurs along that neural pathway that damages the pathway, the mind is unable to access the memory unless the brain has already utilized other neural pathways to access the memory in question (Citation). A common example would be traumatic brain injury (TBI) or Alzheimer’s disease which damages and/or severs these pathways also known as engrams.

Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) bypasses the conscious and sub-conscious synchronization for memory recall. Because this process does not require the client to use habitual patterns of memory retrieval, it keeps the client from again experiencing emotional trauma associated with the details of the event which has proven to be more destructive than helpful (Citation). By using the five senses as descriptors, the practitioner can keep the client without emotion for two to three hours for the session. We therefore will complement this approach with a broader effort to define a comprehensive set of protocols to continue to feed our pipeline of hypothesis-driven mechanistic experiments with candidates displaying ever more severe repetitive behaviors to further this hypothesis. Other treatment modalities are often limited to and by the recall of the conscious. Some methods of amnesic recall exist with good success, but again, only when outside assistance via witnesses, recreating the time-frame of the amnesic event, etc. is present (Citation). The CR process creates access to subconscious memories without recreating the trauma response making it a potentially powerful alternative to the current methods.

INNOVATION – Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™

Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) was created by Terry Earthwind Nichols in the fall of 2010. This model is a non-medical, sequence based protocol used without any outside stimuli such as hypnosis, mood altering substances or pharmaceuticals and can be conducted over the internet using audio/video communications. Traditional psycho-therapeutic modalities use the person’s story of a memory to help them. The innovation is that CR keeps the client out of story and uses alternate neural pathways as the driver to find amnesic memories that drive repetitive behaviors.

This protocol replaces the need for the client to be in the physical location of the practitioner and thus lowering the investment of time, energy and resources. Follow-up sessions are conducted over the phone. The protocol is accomplished by the practitioner conducting the CR session over the internet with the client in a private location, usually the client’s home if they have sufficient access to the internet.

OBJECTIVE – Inform the Public

CR is currently less than 6 years old. In the science world, this is brand new. Our objective is to inform the public that CR exists as an online tool without the need for counseling or therapy and no office visits. The use of the internet continues to widen available uses for various applied sciences over and above main stream sales and social applications. Literally, a client living in Japan can go through the CR Process with a CR Practitioner living in Canada or in the next room.

This highly consistent process has changed the way we help people with repetitive behaviors across the globe.

In the following sections, we will inform you, the public, of how the process works over various audio/visual platforms currently in use.

As stated in the Table of Contents, we will address the problems Veterans and their families. How CR provides a consistent solution to stopping repetitive behaviors such as, but not limited to, PTSD, MST, and Suicide ideation in the Veteran family unit. In conclusion, we will address how the process continues to work for the client ongoing along with some resources to further assist the clients.

BACKGROUND/PROBLEM STATEMENT

On average, 22 veterans commit suicide every day as a result of PTSD and other diagnosed mental disorders, causing national outrage and political unrest. Going further, we know that repetitive behaviors such as PTSD and Suicide Ideation perpetrates through the family unit causing the increases in suicides in today’s society. We estimate, conservatively, that CR will reduce these numbers by 80%.

One of our key indicators for support in our current research is to study Social Media and its effectiveness on repetitive behaviors as a support mechanism. Facebook Groups and advertising are good examples. Currently, CR Practitioners have over 150+ successful sequences completed. Each new CR Practitioner is required to complete three practice-CR’s. These practice session outcomes are not included in the current data from our ongoing research study, unless an actual breakthrough was noted to occur. Once certified, all CR Practitioners are required to submit a final research report to Evolutionary Healer, LLC on every Repetitive Behavior CR session, utilizing HIPAA standards for confidentiality.

As stated before, approximately 7.7 million American adults, age 18 and older–or about 3.5 percent of people in this age group in any given year, suffer from a trauma-related anxiety disorders. In the USA Today National News, report Mental Illness Holding Troops Back, dated September 26, 2013, authors Gregg Zoroya and Meghan Hoyer report, “Post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse and other mental illnesses accounted for more days spent by troops in the hospital than any other medical condition in the military in 2012, including war wounds, injuries and illness according to Pentagon data; 49.6% of these hospital days were due to diagnosed mental disorders.” CR’s success rate, from its inception to the present date is 78%, through year one. However, the current CR protocol is now tracking at 88% through year one. This noteworthy data regarding improved outcomes has borne out, largely, from the addition of a self-patterning assessment tool provided to clients after their CR session.

So, what else is out there?

The tool chest of Behavioral Health professionals is quite large – that’s the good news. These tools are used while keeping the client in a memory of high emotional stress with the goal of repeatedly reviewing the high emotional memory by having the client re-live the memory over and over again until the memory can be somehow changed and/or emotionally dulled to a point that the client can live with the memory numbed state.

Our experiences with most of the current therapies and modalities is that the memory eventually gains emotional momentum again and the client starts all over again using the same or similar processes. Very often, the “fix” only lasts for a few weeks/months at a time. Each time the client suffers a repeat of the high emotions of this memory, the client must deal with at a deeper level.

The Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) model uses a person’s conscious memory at the cellular level without the use of other modalities such as, but not limited to, hypnosis, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP), Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

The CR Process begins with some intake questions to gain base information without having the client talk about the memories they are dealing with at the time. A setup statement is used just before beginning the process:

“There are no good memories – there are no bad memories – simply memories.”

The client begins to calm down from any anxiety they may be feeling while closing their eyes. The client closes their eyes to stop the auto-motion of the mind while looking around their physical surroundings keeping from being fully present and calm.

Here’s why we are so successful:

“We use the five senses to describe memories and not their stories.”

The formula, if you will, is this: the client does tell us the story or history of each memory we go to. In other words, the client “freeze frames” the memory into a still photo with – no story/history = no motion = no emotions = perfectly present and calm.

SOLUTION

Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) Process Outline:

Intake Phone Call

Two to three-hour online CR Process Session

Seven days of our unique email journaling system

Day 8 one-hour phone call to review the previous seven days of journaling

Day 15 one-hour phone call to check client status and continue client self-repatterning

Day 30 one-hour phone call is designed as the ‘well-baby’ check of the client and assist with any additional self-repatterning needed.

INTAKE PHONE CALL

The Intake Phone Call is designed to gain necessary information on family history, hierarchy of the immediate family as well as the parents and grand-parents hierarchy. Keeping away from known high emotional memories, the CR Practitioner will gain a life history of the client – Veteran in this instance, how long married and how many children he/she has and whether the spouse/caregiver is a Veteran also. We further ascertain if either client or caregiver have experienced combat. Also, what types of treatment are they receiving at the present time.

CR PROCESS SESSION

We begin a CR session by reviewing, with the client, the sequence that will occur during the session. We also go through the checklist of items needed by the client for the session such as comfortable clothing, ability to be in bare feet initially, tissue paper, plenty of water nearby, and their computer’s software is off except for Skype to maximize signal strength. We make sure the client’s environment is quiet, comfortable, and well lit (especially if the sun will be going down during the CR Session).

Definition of Memories:

“There are no good memories, there are no bad memories, simply memories.”

So how does it work?

Because CR is a non-medical model, it is safer and much more consistent than medical models as we do not use the client’s emotional story to be part of the session once the session begins. In other words, we do not have the client in their story, thus removing ego and ultimately removing emotion from the session. The client’s eyes are closed, which results in the client remaining fully present and without emotion for the entire two to three-hour session. Why do we do this? We are only interested in where the client’s block is and not ‘why’ it is there. There are four client contacts used in the CR protocol: Intake phone call, CR Session, 8-Day Follow-up phone call, and 30-Day Follow-up phone call.

Excerpt from the Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ Session – Guidelines

These guidelines are to reinforce the CR Practitioner training.

Fill out the CR Research Report and send it to [email protected] when the CR Session has been completed. This report can also be used as a quick reference guide as to what comes next in a CR Session.

Make sure the client’s environment is quiet, comfortable, and well lit (especially if the sun will be going down during the CR Session). Ask them if their tissues and water are within arm’s reach so they can continue to keep their eyes closed when they need either of them.

Wording in quotation marks are the words you will be saying to your client during the session.

Wiping Tears:

“When there are tears present, use a tissue and not your hand so the release is separate from the body. Toss the tissue to the floor and use a new tissue when tears are present.”

For clients diagnosed with PTSD, remember that the PTSD event is a tag and we do not go to tags (known events that are of high emotional value to the client). Be sure to keep the client out of story, any story, including the story around their PTSD, especially, because it is also too easy for them to be triggered into it and relive the event.

1. Relaxation Exercise

“I would like you to take 3 relaxing belly breaths, breathing in through your nose–letting your belly puff out and breathing out through your mouth—squeezing your belly in.”
(Wait for client to take 3 cleansing belly breaths)

2. Centering Exercise

Client Closes Eyes and keeps them closed until CR Session is over.
(Can open eyes to go take a bathroom break. Make sure the client has used the bathroom just before they Skype)

“Now I would like you to close your eyes and go to that place in you that is most comfortable, where no one can bother you. In other words, just get peaceful and centered. Let me know when you are there.”

3. Reminder About Memories

“Remember there are no good memories there are no bad memories, there are simply memories.”

1. Keep the Client Out of Story

For example, the client says there is a “pretty” cookie jar on the counter and proceeds to tell you a story about that cookie jar or why they like the cookie jar. The “Why” is the story.

2. Neutralization after the Active Block is found

The client says emotion releasing verbiage to the person responsible for the incident that created the client’s block. When you do find a block, have the client repeat aloud the wording below as they speak to the person who was involved in the block.

Neutralization Wording (Note this is an incomplete sentence)
“I love you and I forgive you, so I can love me and forgive me.”

NOTE about Physical Stressors:

Toes and feet:

Prior to the CR session beginning, we have the client place the camera they are using on the floor in front of them. We will then begin to review the memories the client told us about during the Intake Session. Our research has shown that when humans are young, they act like other primates in that they use their toes in the same way they use their fingers. As they age, their parents begin to breaks this tandem movement by putting socks and shoes on the children’s feet disconnecting the tandem movement of toes and fingers. Because we do not observe our toes in stress situations, we are unaware that they can move in precarious ways without conscious thought associated with this movement resulting in hammer toes and other movements not associated with normal movement for balance. I would note here that we also curl up our fingers like our toes but then straighten them out afterwards so we very seldom observe (hammer) fingers, although we do see enlarged joints from ‘popping’ the knuckles repeatedly. This is also noted as a long-term observation of a stressful environment. In our research, we have observed the abnormal use of toes, i.e. little toe moving over the fourth toe in stress situations as a good example. One client moved her little toe over her fourth toe repeatedly during the session when talking about her relationship with her grandfather and when she talked about her grandmother, she removed the toe from the fourth toe and returned the little toe back to its natural position. We also study Babinski and Pavlov when learning about physical stressors and how each of these two scientists formed their hypothesis of involuntary muscle movement. So, the result of these observations gives us indicators that voluntary muscles can move involuntarily without conscious thought associated with the movement during stress. We also found that we can place an approximate age when these movements were formed analyzing what age the person was able to use their toes in that way without assistance from their hands.

Tandem muscle movement:

We have found that when a person moves their toes or fingers, they also move their tendons connecting the toes and fingers to the foot or hand. These tendons also connect to the knee from the toes just like elbows are connected with the fingers. We observe the person’s movement in the both the knees and elbows if we cannot directly observe the toes or fingers. The movement of the knee or elbow tells us that they are moving their toes and fingers as a possible sign of stress during the session. Why is this important? We don’t have to directly observe the toes and fingers which often move in tandem with each other. In other words, our finite amount of camera space can be utilized more completely. We know that when the toes and feet are moving, the upper torso is moving as well.

Invoking stress:

Once we have the camera on the client’s bare feet up to their knees, we can then review stress inducing memories discussed in the Intake Session to invoke involuntary muscle movement to indicate stress is present. After stressors are observed, we then move the camera to the upper torso and reword the questions to invoke the same stress response as was observed on the feet. Now we can start the CR Session knowing what stressors will be present during the session. Note: sometimes we do not get any response from the body during the stress questions and must start the session without these additional tools.

________________________________________________________________

CR Research Report cont’d:
________________________________________________________________

Have client place camera/computer on the floor in front of their feet. Make sure you can see both feet including their toes (from the knees down if possible).

Ask a few stress-inducing questions and watch the client’s feet for a response (For example: something you know that is difficult for them to talk about).

Record physical observations: _______________________________________________________________

Have the client place camera/computer on top of the desk so you can see them from just below their belly button to the top of their head.

Ask a few more stress inducing questions and watch the client’s feet for a response (For example: something you know that is difficult for them to talk about).

Record physical observations: _______________________________________________________________

First Memory (Safe Memory)

“There are no good memories; there are no bad memories, simply memories.”

“Now I’d like you to go back to a memory that you often think about and enjoy remembering. When you get there, tell me where you are (Location) and how old you are in years (Age). Choose only one age. For example, “I am six years old. When you arrive, ‘Freeze Frame’ the memory, and see it as a photo.”

Location: _Example: at the county fair, standing near a ride

Age: _Example: 5_

We then have the client describe the scene using all 5 senses. If the client gets to the location and mentions a sense before you start asking the “sense questions,” use that sense. If not, ask questions for all of the senses in order. Think about what is logical based on the location. Note any discrepancies. For example, what sense would you immediately be aware of at that particular location.

“Please describe for me what do you smell?” (This is an itemized list of the client is aware of one item at a time)
Example: popcorn, corn dogs, gasoline, grass, flowers, etc._______________

Record physical observations: Example: head was up and to the right, hands rubbing against each other, heavy breathing, etc._________________

“Please describe for me what do you hear?” Example: birds, people’s voices, music, noise from a ride passing, etc.

Record physical observations: Example: face went down and right as ride came past, a tear came from left eye

The CR Session continues through this memory using a total of 9 questions: touch and sight is broken down into 2 questions plus we add 2 additional awareness questions to the end of the memory description.

The CR Practitioner takes the client through this process describing three memories in total all the while observing the client’s involuntary movement of voluntary muscles for signs of unconscious stress.

Second and Third Memories:

We now follow the same sequence as in the first memory for these next two memories. Each time noting any missing, odd and/or couldn’t be remembered.

Note:
It may be necessary to go to a fourth memory to get more information and the sequence remains the same.

Clarifying Questions:

It’s not what your client is describing as much as how they are describing it. Ask for apparent missing information. For example, in a kitchen, client may not have described what was on the counter so ask them if there is anything on the counter. An example of an outside location that has a fishing dock, ask if there is a boat.

Note:
Ascertain and review all of the information. If you cannot find the block, end the session. At this point other than clients diagnosed with PTSD, you can help a client with known memories and with high emotions such as loss of a loved one, etc. This way your client can end the session with a victory.

7 Days of Journaling:

What was coming up for the client each day? Sleep patterns went from _________ to _________.

Note the day their self-repatterning began (usually Day 3). Did additional information come up, related or unrelated to the CR Session?

7 Day Journaling and 8-Day Follow-up Call Email Report for Evolutionary Healer:

The client starts their journal the morning after their CR Session (no editing). The client reads their journal each afternoon (no editing). Client emails their journal to Practitioner the morning of the 7th day of journaling. The journal will have Day 7 on the first page when printed or looking at it online. On day

eight, the practitioner will have an 8-Day Session Call to review what was in the journal. The CR Practitioner will analyze each sentence reflecting on what they know of the client and their CR session as well as what they are saying in their journal.

After the 8-Day Follow-up Call, the CR Practitioner will send the Report via Email to: [email protected] with Subject Line: client number 7 Day Journaling Report

30 Day Session Call and Follow-up Email Report for Evolutionary Healer:
This is a check-in that takes place 30 days from the CR Session. The objective is to check-in with the client to see what is coming up for them. Listen closely to their wording as they can slip back to old habits if they have not continued to keep fully present.

Demographic of Clients Worldwide

Demographic breakdown of CR:

Client demographic: male and female ages 16-77, civilians, veterans/combat veterans–their spouses and their children age 16 and up (combat veterans – one Army Sgt., one AF Combat Medic) (non-combat veterans – CW3 Army and below);
Education: from High School Junior to non-graduate adult to PhD Psychologist and college professors; Economic demographic: family below poverty level to white collar professional;

Family unit: single parent to unmarried parents to divorced parents to two-family units and ultimately married family unit.

Economic Profile: below the poverty level to professional level income.

CONCLUSION

Our objective has been and continues to be to inform the general public of an innovative and timely new tool in the fight against PTSD, MST and Suicide Ideation in the Veteran community along with their families.

Source: Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia

Amnesia is a deficit in memory caused by brain damage, disease, or psychological trauma.

[1] Amnesia can also be caused temporarily by the use of various sedatives and hypnotic drugs. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused.

[2] There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde amnesia. Retrograde amnesia is the inability to retrieve information that was acquired before a particular date, usually the date of an accident or operation.

[3] In some cases the memory loss can extend back decades, while in others the person may lose only a few months of memory. Anterograde amnesia is the inability to transfer new information from the short-term store into the long-term store. People with this type of amnesia cannot remember things for long periods of time. These two types are not mutually exclusive. Both can occur within a patient at one time. Both types can occur simultaneously.

Our research has identified how the “protection mechanism” for an amnesic event works and therefore has produced a process that consistently outmaneuvers this mechanism allowing our clients access to the protected memory and neutralize the emotional value contained inside the memory. In other words, the client opens the memory up from another position (much like a back door) identifying the perpetrator of the event giving the client an opportunity to the client’s human voice to neutralize the emotions of the event out loud thus releasing the mind to conduct normal and uninterrupted activities as were present before the event occurred.

Key here is the fact that all other repetitive behaviors effected by the amnesic event are also no longer repeating.

Repetitive Behavior Cellular Regression™ (CR) consistently stops the driving behaviors behind repetitive behaviors. Over 130+ CR Sessions have been completed to date with 100% success through the first 30 days (Success defined as no additional episodes of triggering) and currently we still seeing 80% continued success through one year (timeline for tracking results).

Because all CR Sessions as well as CR Practitioner Certification training is conducted online, the future of this new tool is solid and clearly expandable to multiple other repetitive behaviors such as, but not limited to, alcoholism, smoking cessation, self-sabotage, various emotional traumas, etc.
