Humans spend roughly 70% of their days in a fight or flight response. It is common to be stressed, anxious, and worried. But it’s not healthy. These types of emotions resonate at lower frequencies. How can we shift to more positive emotions? And release emotions that may be stored or trapped in our biofield?
Dr. Sina McCullough is the creator of the online program GO WILD: How I Reverse Chronic & Autoimmune Disease and the co-host of the Beyond Labels podcast with Joel Salatin.
Today she explains how stored emotions in our bio-field can dictate the way our genes express themselves, and how emotions like fear, sadness or anger can express genes that create inflammatory conditions. She discusses the ill effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences (known as ACES) and unresolved traumas. She goes over therapies (like tapping and breath work) that help us move emotion through the body to prevent and reverse disease. And she also reminds us of the healing power of self-love and acceptance.

Humans spend roughly 70% of their days in a fight or flight response. It is common to be stressed, anxious and worried but it’s not healthy. These types of emotions resonate at lower frequencies. How can we shift to more positive emotions and release emotions that may be stored or trapped in our biofield? This is episode 341 and our guest is Dr. Sina McCullough.
She is the creator of the online program Go Wild, How I Reversed Chronic and Autoimmune Disease. She has authored two books about our food supply and is the Cohost of the Beyond Labels Podcast with Joel Salatin. Now she explains how stored emotions in our biofield can dictate the way our genes express themselves. Emotions like fear, sadness or anger can express genes that create inflammatory conditions and adverse childhood experiences known as ACEs or unresolved traumas are a risk factor for chronic and autoimmune diseases as well.
She offers ideas on how to move emotion through the body to heal using breath and movement and she reminds us of the healing power of self-love and acceptance.

2021 Wise Traditions Conference
Welcome to the show, Sina.
Thank you for having me, Hilda. I’m so excited to be here.
We’ve all heard the saying that laughter is medicine. Science is showing that it is, in fact, true.
I last heard you speak at Polyface and I found myself captivated by the idea that thoughts and emotions are energy. Can you explain that a little bit to us?
Emotions themselves are in fact energy. They are energy that exists or resonates at specific vibrational frequencies. These frequencies have been measured by Dr. David Hawkins and others. What we think of as positive emotions like love and gratitude, resonate at higher frequencies. What we tend to think of as negative emotions like anger and fear, resonate at lower frequencies. For instance, Dr. Hawkins proposed that the vibrational frequency of joy is 540, while the vibrational frequency of anger is as low as 150.
The lower the vibrational frequency, the less life force or energy that exists in yourselves and the higher, the vibrational frequency, the higher the life force or energy in yourself. What that means is if you walk around feeling anxious or you’re upset, your body and the cells, in particular, are going to have less life force. They’re going to operate at a lower vibrational frequency, which keeps you more in a state of sickness or sets you up to develop a sickness.
The example I usually give is what does this look like on a physical level? Vibrational frequencies are not tangible. Laughter is a great example. It has a high vibrational frequency and I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that laughter is medicine. Science is showing that that is in fact true. Laughter is in fact medicine. We have hundreds of peer-reviewed studies published in the scientific literature that are showing things like laughter decreases pro-inflammatory cytokines, which means it lowers your overall level of inflammation in your body. As you know, lowering chronic levels of inflammation is critical to reverse disease and prevent disease.
Laughter also kills cancer cells. It does this by increasing natural killer cell activity. Those are immune cells that are responsible for killing sick or stressed-out cells like cancer cells and it does a lot of other things. For instance, it can lower your blood glucose levels. It’s been shown to do that in type 2 diabetics. It can lower blood pressure. It can improve memory in the elderly and it can boost immunity by increasing T cells and B cells. This is one example of how emotion can elicit changes in the body and it does that through vibrational frequencies.
I feel like why haven’t more people heard of this? Why are we always thinking, “Why do we think we only need treatments that are coming in a bottle or a syringe?”
I think that’s mainstream and that’s what most of us are exposed to is Western medicine. Western medicine largely relies on pharmaceuticals in order to try to treat people’s conditions. It’s been pretty well established now that Western medicine is fantastic when it comes to acute traumas like emergency situations. It’s the best medicine in the world for acute traumas. However, in terms of prevention of disease and reversal of disease, the Western system is not set up to address those conditions. They are not going to be targeting necessarily these types of healing modalities like using vibrational frequencies.
I will say that some Western clinics have begun to use vibrational frequencies in order to heal people or in order to help reduce pain, for instance, with cancer patients. We have over 6,000 published studies on the biofield alone and 400 clinical studies that have been published on how to use these biofield or energy therapies to help patients. I’m also documenting the effectiveness of these therapies. I do think that it is starting to come online in some of these Western clinics but it is a slow process.
I can understand why. As you were saying, we’re used to allopathic care. In other words, if I break my arm, I can’t laugh. I need attention from some health professionals but going back to what you were saying about some clinics and some groups looking to raise our emotional frequency, how can you go about it? Besides laughter, what other techniques are being used?
Some clinics are using sound therapy. Your specific sound frequencies or music in order to raise someone’s vibrational frequency. If you think about it, music is very therapeutic. I’m sure we all have favorite songs from our past or a favorite song from Christmas, for instance, and it brings back all these childhood memories, conjures up these memories. There are songs that can resonate with you and in part, it’s because of the vibrational frequency that comes through that song. The emotions that the song elicits are imprinted on your biofield so when the song plays, you’re receiving those positive emotions that have been imprinted on your biofield. This is one way that sound therapy can be used to raise vibrational frequencies.
Sometimes light therapy is used, energy medicine, which that’s my favorite technique for raising vibration and frequency because anybody can do it. You can learn how to do it for free and you can do it any time. Our ancient ancestors knew about energy medicine and that knowledge has been passed down to us even though I found that most of us have become disconnected from our own abilities to heal ourselves.
If you think about it, when people are frustrated, one common response is you stick your hand to your forehead like, “Ugh,” when you’re frustrated with somebody or yourself. When you stick your hand on your forehead, that brings blood flow to the brain. That is an actual healing modality right there. Another example is if someone’s scared, they’ll often shake. They shiver their body as a response to being afraid and that’s another way. You’re physically shaking off that emotion.
These are a couple of examples of energy medicine, as I said, my favorite modality. One thing that I learned initially in trying to raise my own vibrational frequency was tapping and that’s an emotional freedom technique. When you tap on different meridians on your body, you’re talking yourself through a situation, acknowledging the emotions and giving them the space to be transmuted or to be released without judgment.
There are all these different ways that clinics are using techniques to raise the vibrational frequency. You can even do things like yoga, Tai Chi, meditation and deep breathing. Even slowing down your breath and paying attention to your breath takes you out of fight or flight and helps bring you back into the present moment where you can release emotions. Emotional detox, which I think that’s important for everybody to do every day.
We’re going to have to talk more about that but I want to back up to when you were mentioning our ancestors were working with energy in a way, which perhaps we’ve lost nowadays. Can you talk to us specifically about some of the techniques that you’re aware of?
What we think probably would have been one of the earliest body movements is raising the hands up to the sky and stretching up to the heavens. You can do this one hand stretching straight up and the other hand stretching straight down by your side and you stretch them in both directions, up and down as much as you can, as long as you can, while you take a deep breath in and then you breathe it out. What you do is you do that on both sides multiple times and then you bring your hands down to your body and all the way up to the heavens. You visualize it coming in and you bring your arms down in front of you into your chest as though you’re bringing the light from heaven down into your chest.
We think that this is probably one of the early body movements that our ancient ancestors did. Clearly, they were much more in tune with nature and their bodies than we are nowadays. When I started working with energy medicine, I thought, “I have no idea what I’m doing. How am I supposed to move my body?” I saw these free videos on YouTube. I started moving my body and it was about ten minutes into it and my body started communicating with me. It started telling me ways it wanted me to move it. I wasn’t following the instructor mindlessly. I was tapping into what my body wanted and it was saying to me, “Move this way. Circle your hand again.” You do it and you can start feeling the energy move through your body in real-time.
That’s what was so amazing to me is that we all have these innate abilities to heal ourselves. At that summit, I made the case that all diseases stem from an emotional level. Since it says emotions are energy, having the ability for yourself to move energy through your body is the most powerful healing tool that you could ever have in your toolkit. You can do it yourself through your breath and the movement of different parts of your body. It’s that simple.
It surprises me, Sina, that you are into this because I thought you were a nutritionist.
The ability to move energy through your body is the most powerful healing tool you could ever have in your toolkit.
I stumbled upon this in my own healing journey. As you know, I nearly died from an advanced stage of an autoimmune disease. I had debilitating rheumatoid arthritis in my 30s and it was accompanied by arsenic poisoning, leaky gut. I was borderline for both pellagra and beriberi, which are both B vitamin nutrition deficiencies. I was taking a multivitamin and mineral every single day yet, I was still that severely deficient and that’s become very common in our culture with the rise of leaky gut.
I almost died in my 30s from an advanced stage of an autoimmune disease. I’d seen Western medical doctors for over many years and nobody had any answers, even though they ran me through a gamut of tests for many years. I even had exploratory surgery at one point. Nobody knew what was wrong and nobody could figure it out. The last doctor I saw said, “This has to be in your head because none of your symptoms match up with any diseases.” That’s when I knew I was on my own. I got off the Western medicine path and I started searching for answers by thinking outside of the box.
Long story short, I created a healing path for myself. I addressed physical triggers that lead to disease like food triggers, heavy metal toxicity, these microbial imbalances in my GI tract. All those things we think of that contribute to chronic and autoimmune diseases and got me into remission. Dealing with the physical triggers reversed the disease enough that I can get into remission but I decided remission wasn’t good enough.
Remission by definition does not mean you’re healed. It just means that you don’t have symptoms. Even the National Cancer Institute acknowledges that remission means that cancer may still be in the body. I didn’t settle for emission. I decided I wanted complete healing. I didn’t want to live in that space of fear thinking that the disease could come back if I ate the wrong food or stressed out too much. I kept digging for answers and that led me to the discovery of structured water, the biofield, how your emotions are stored in your biofield and how that is the blueprint for your biology? It’s not DNA. I was trained that it’s the DNA that dictates your health outcome and that you can control the expression of your DNA through foods and whatnot.
That is true. There is epigenetics. You can turn on and off your genes and you can do that in part through food but what I’m saying is that’s not the end all be all. We have this biofield or energy field outside of us, where your emotions are stored and that biofield governs your physical body including which genes are going to be expressed, which hormones are produced and so forth. One way that it governs is through which emotions are stored in your biofield.
If you are storing emotions of anger, sadness or fear and you store that in your biofield, it is dictating which genes are going to be expressed. It’s going to express genes that are creating inflammatory conditions in your body. That’s going to set you up to be in a chronic state of fight or flight. What I learned was that if you have a physical disease, you have an energetic imbalance in your biofield. In order to get out of remission, to be fully healed from all diseases and have optimal health, you have to address that energetic balance. You have to bring yourself back into energetic balance.
Is that where the emotional detox comes in?
Every day now, I do an emotional detox where I check in with my body. I consent now where I’m storing any emotions that I don’t want a store. We tend to call these toxic emotions for simplicity but as you get further into this area, you realize you don’t want to judge any emotion. That’s what we call it, transmuting emotions instead of releasing the emotion. For simplicity, I’m going to use the word toxic. What I do is I check in with my body and I asked, “Are you holding any toxic emotions? Do I have any emotions of anger or fear? What’s bothering you?” We’re good at suppressing our emotions in our society. We are trained from the time we were children to suppress how we feel.
Oftentimes, I found I could be holding onto something like resentment towards someone but it’s pushed down in my body that I’m not consciously thinking of it. If I stop for a moment, like at the end of the day for instance and I sit in silence and ask myself to show me where am I holding and stuck emotions? The emotions will come up and I will transmute them. I think that’s important for everybody to do every day. I’m saying this as a nutritionist, “The emotional detox is more important even than the foods that you’re putting in your body.”
That is a powerful statement and I can’t help but think about what you said a moment ago, that we were trained as children to suppress emotions. I was with a little kid who hit her head on a piano, as toddlers do. As her cousin picked her up, she said, “Nothing happened. It’s okay.” I think when we do that, not acknowledging how something hurts. We’re teaching the kid, “Don’t be sad, stop crying.” We’re teaching them to tamp down those emotions but they are still going to be stored somewhere is what I hear you saying.
That is exactly right. I understand that desire you want to fix the child. You want to help him not be sad so you’re like, “It’s okay. Get up and keep going.” I also have young children and it has been hard. It’s easier now that I’ve tried it many times but what I have decided to do is when they are hurt whether it’s a physical or emotional hurt, what I do is I sit beside them and I help them move through the emotion.
Instead of swooping in and doing that mommy reaction of you’re trying to take the hurt away, I sit next to them. I hold them. Even now I’m getting choked up about it. I tell them, “It is all right to feel what you feel. Don’t judge the emotion, allow yourself to feel the emotion. I am here for you, supporting you. I’ll help you through this.”
I think that’s one of the most powerful things you can do for your children. On the level that it’s going to help them to not hold onto these emotions and keep them stuck in their body but it is teaching them to communicate with their bodies at a very early age. To learn how to understand and listen to what your body is telling you, to know that it is okay to feel that emotion. You don’t have to be ashamed of it. If you acknowledge the emotion and it’s in that safe space, the emotion can leave.
The emotion gets stuck when you become ashamed and embarrassed by the emotion, you’re trying to shove it down. That’s when the emotions get stuck. I think of emotions as children. What did children want? They want to feel loved. For a lot of children, love equates to your undivided attention to them. That’s all these emotions want. They want to be acknowledged and then you acknowledge it and say, “The sadness is there. I acknowledge you. You can leave.” It’s that simple as opposed to, “No, I’m going to shove that one down because it’s not okay to be sad. Big boys don’t cry.” It’s not okay to do that. The emotion gets stuck in there and that leads to ACEs, Adverse Childhood Experiences.
I wanted to talk to you about that next because I’ve heard some people say that much of our disease or sickness comes from adverse childhood events. Some have called it adult childhood unresolved situations. Is that a result of stuck emotions?
Adverse childhood experiences are unresolved traumas. It could be physical, mental or emotional. They might include things like your parents separated or divorced. You had physical, sexual or emotional abuse or neglect. There was substance abuse in the family, financial difficulties or you were bullied in school. It could even be things like where you saw a scary movie at a young age, it terrified you and that imprinted on you. All of these things are Adverse Childhood Experiences and I believe ACEs are the most overlooked risk factor for all chronic and autoimmune diseases.
In fact, we have numerous studies now in the scientific literature that have shown this correlation between ACEs and diseases. If you have four or more ACEs, which by the way is not that difficult to have. When I tested, I had around ten. Four ACEs are not that many. If you have four ACEs, one study that was amongst almost 18,000 adults, showed that you had a 4.5 times higher risk of depression, 2.5 times higher risk of cancer and 2.6 times higher risk of stroke. Another study in 2009 with around 15,000 adults showed that if you had two or more ACEs, that could be your family had financial difficulties and you saw somebody bullied in school.
It’s not that many adverse events. You have two of them, you’re 100 more likely to develop a rheumatic disease and you have an 80% increased risk of developing Th2-dominant autoimmune conditions like lupus, asthma or allergies. In women, they’ve shown that the correlation between ACEs as a child and developing an autoimmune disease in adulthood, that correlation is as strongly linked as smoking is to cancer. This is the most overlooked risk factor for all diseases.
I’m thinking about it’s almost as if these ACEs are wounds. Almost like a stab wound that later makes us more vulnerable to infection and sickness. I was thinking, someone in the biohacking world might say, “No, that person got cancer not because they had trauma as a child but because they leave their Wi-Fi on all night and they sleep right next to it.” I thought, “What if they had no ACEs or if they had done some emotional detox, maybe their body would be resilient enough to handle that Wi-Fi near them.” Do you get what I’m saying?
The emotional detox is more important even than the foods that you’re putting in your body.
You’re spot on. That’s exactly right. What we’re learning about ACEs, these childhood traumas is that we think that the trauma itself resets your HPA axis, the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Adrenal system. It resets it to lower your stress threshold. Meaning, you’re going to get stressed more easily. The things that may not be a big deal to somebody else sets you off. You get upset about things easily. Also, what that does is it puts you in a more chronic state of fight or flight. I found this very fascinating. We know that the average person spends about 70% of their day in chronic fight or flight.
We’re thinking, “What is it that’s putting us in fight or flight?” Fight or flight is a fear response. We’re in this fear state roughly 70% of the day. The question is, “What are we afraid of? Where is this fear coming from?” What I have discovered in my own research is that most of us are running from what we call emotional tigers. We tend to think of fight or flight as a great protective mechanism. If like a tiger jumps out from behind a building, your body goes into fight or flight, you release cortisol, adrenaline and all these hormones to help you either fight the tiger or run away. That’s a great thing. We need to have that protection mechanism.
The problem is we don’t have real-life tigers walking around, putting us in fight or flight but we have emotional tigers. It can elicit the fight or flight as strongly as a physical tiger can. What happens is when we have these traumas in childhood and we suppress them. We don’t transmute the emotions and work through them, your body is still experiencing those emotions even when you’re not thinking about it. Sometimes we dissociate from the emotions so well that for instance, we can tell a story of abuse that happened to us as a child and we can remain emotionless.
Many of us mistake that as, “I must be over it because I’m not getting upset when I talk about it.” Our bodies are very good at protecting us so we tend to dissociate from things. We separate the emotion from the event. When you do that, the body has still relived that event, as though, it happened in real-time. It can’t tell the difference between abuse that happened 30 years ago and abuse that’s happening right now. Your body keeps releasing these toxic chemicals, which keep you in the state of fight or flight.
That’s a fear base. You are sitting there stuck in fear and when that happens, you’re creating a space for disease to grow in your body. We know that chronic fight or flight leads to elevated chronic levels of inflammation, which leads to insulin resistance, heart disease, weight gain, decreased energy, all the autoimmune and chronic diseases that we’re all aware of. It is critical to release these emotions because the emotion itself can make you sick.
To piggyback on what you were saying, I’ll give you an example of how powerful it can be to utilize your emotions to heal. We know that people have experienced what we call spontaneous healings. These are well-documented in the scientific and medical literature. What that means is that somebody is sick with cancer and they’re not going through any treatment but all of a sudden the disease disappears. The tumor is gone. As I said, there are many examples of this in the literature. In fact, there are so many examples. There’s a journal in 2001 and they were talking about how the spontaneous reversal of cancer is not even a question anymore in terms of can it happen because it’s well-documented that it’s not even rare to see these spontaneous reversals.
What do the majority of these spontaneous healings have in common? It’s a release of emotion. Usually, it’s an act of forgiveness. When the person elicits this act of forgiveness, cancer or whatever the disease is dissolves because they’ve released that emotional imprint on the biofield. The body is no longer expressing the genes, which then expresses the hormones, other cytokines and whatnot that fuels the disease. It stops and the disease dissolves.
I have a couple of questions, Sina, before we do a wrap-up. How come I see people that seemingly appear to be extremely healthy even though they’ve had over twenty adverse childhood events? People who seem to have overcome not necessarily dealt with those emotions.
Every single person is unique. We all have some childhood trauma. Most of it is from direct interaction in our own childhood. Traumas can also be inherited generationally, imprinted on the biofield and we know this goes back at least fourteen generations. They’re stuck emotions that you carry around that come from your ancestors, which you can also easily clear. What happens is we all also have our own genetics. Through epigenetics, we’re all expressing genes differently. Some of us are more susceptible to certain physical triggers than others.
As we’ve mentioned some people are susceptible to EMS or grains. Grain is a huge one. That’s the top food trigger for all autoimmune conditions. Some people have MTHFR genetic variance where they’re not able to detox as easily as the next person who doesn’t have that genetic variant. Maybe the P450 pathway is slowed down or maybe somebody has nutrient deficiencies than somebody else. We know vitamin D deficiency can elicit an autoimmune disease.
I’m not saying there are no physical triggers. There are physical triggers. What I’m saying is the emotional triggers are what sets you up for a disease condition. It depends on how many different physical triggers you’re encountering on a daily basis and how your genetics are set up, including the epigenetics to let you either overcome those or if it’s enough that you reached your own individual tipping point. Everyone has their own tipping point.
What these early childhood traumas do is they bring you closer to your tipping point. In some people, they tip you right over the tipping point into disease. In others, they bring you close and you have these physical burdens on your body that feed in and tip you over that trigger in order to elicit a full-blown disease. Either way, you need to remove the physical triggers and address that emotional trigger to bring it back down to a healthy baseline to reverse the disease and achieve optimal health.
Is that one reason that at the summit, you challenged each of us to look at ourselves daily in the mirror? To use our name and say, for example, “I love you Sina and I accept you exactly as you are,” to bring us back to a place of accepting ourselves, our emotions and all that makes us, us.
In an energetic space, autoimmune disease is the inability to love yourself. These adverse childhood experiences create limiting beliefs about yourself. Beliefs like I am not good enough, which in essence means you’re not loved and you don’t feel loved. What I have found is that all of us, to some extent or another, don’t feel good enough. What we’re saying is we don’t feel loved and when you don’t feel loved, you don’t feel safe.
You’re constantly on guard. You’re looking for that next tiger, physical or emotional tiger, which sets you up, like we said, “To be in fight or flight.” The best way that you can heal yourself is to learn to love and accept yourself exactly the way you are. Stop looking for it externally. We all do this to some degree, we look for this external validation. This is one reason why people get so addicted to social media or they’re texting because you hear like, “My phone dinged. Somebody texted me.” It releases dopamine and for a moment you feel loved and accepted. We are driven by this desire to be loved and accepted. In large part, I believe it’s because we didn’t get that as children.
If you can learn to love and accept yourself, you not only heal yourself but you heal the others around you because you raise your entire vibrational frequency, which does affect the frequency of people around you. That’s why I shared that technique at the summit and it’s simple. You look yourself in the mirror, look in your own eyes, you would fill in your own name and you say, “I love you and accept you exactly the way you are.” You do it for 30 days and you will be a changed person at the end of that 30 days.
It reminds me of a conversation I had with Bruce Lipton, who was also talking about how for a long time, he was looking for others outside of himself to complete him. He was needy and he was not a fun person to be around. He wasn’t balanced and he wasn’t healthy but when he learned to love and accept himself, the man is like a magnet, Sina. I don’t know if you’ve ever met him but everyone is drawn to him because he’s so content. He’s found that place of balance inside himself.
I didn’t know what it meant to feel balanced until I started practicing, loving, accepting myself and using different modalities like yoga, meditation and whatnot. For a brief moment, I felt balanced and I’m telling you, Hilda, it was addicting. It felt so good. I had never in my life felt so much peace and I didn’t want or need anything. Not only physical things but I didn’t need my husband’s validation. I didn’t need him to tell me I was pretty or I looked thin in that outfit. In those moments, none of that mattered.
I felt I was love and it was radiating from me. I’ve never met Bruce Lipton although I’d love to. He’s on my bucket list but I understand what you’re saying because I have met people who are balanced and I instantly resonate with them. Being around them helps me balance as well. I tell you, I’m a different person. I’m a better mom when I’m balanced. My husband will even say to me in some days, “Did you do your meditation this morning?” He was like, “You are a different person, you’re more agitated. You’re more irritated now.” Even my own husband and my children can recognize when I have not been doing my own energy work on my own body.
Adverse Childhood Experiences are the most overlooked risk factor for all chronic and autoimmune diseases.
I think this has been wonderful, Sina. I do hope it has resonated with the readers just a reminder to work on this energy field, work on some of this emotional detox and release to be healthier and more balanced. I want to ask you, as we close, the question I often pose at the end here. What’s the one thing that the readers can do to improve their health?
Emotional detox and don’t let that name intimidate you. We tend to get confused about, “What’s a detox? How do I do that?” I would suggest starting with something simple. At the end of the day, sit down in a quiet space, as quiet as you can and take three deep breaths in and out and ask yourself, “Am I holding on to any emotions that might be harmful to me?” You can even recapture the day in your mind, go back over the day, the events and say, “Did I get upset at any point?” If you did, take a deep breath in, breathe it out, acknowledge the emotion, whatever the emotion is that comes up and say, “I acknowledge you and now you can leave.” Let it release. You can try to take your hand from above your head. Move it across your face and out of your body and then shake your hand off to physically move that emotion out of your body.
That’s a beautiful recommendation and I’m so thankful for this conversation, Sina. We’re all grateful.
Thank you so much for having me, Hilda. I love what you do. I’m hoping you’re coming to our show soon.
I hope so too. Take care, Sina.
