Aligned Research

 

There is much research supporting the concepts and theories underpinning the LP, some of the key papers are presented here:

Dr. Bruun Wyller, who is considered to be one of Norway’s leading experts on CFS/ME, has published some interesting articles which concur with the clinical findings of the Phil Parker Lightning Process, which you can find here (1) (2).  His most recent paper in conjunction with Hege R. Eriksen, Kirsti Malterud who are university researchers from Bergen, can be found here (3).

Dr. Bruun Wyller says: ‘Recent research on CFS pathophysiology has revealed alterations of cardiovascular regulation and thermoregulation, characterized by enhanced sympathetic nervous activity and increased secretion of epinephrine.  These findings indicate a state of permanent distress response – sustained arousal – in CFS patients.  Based upon our findings, we have formulated a theory of sustained arousal in CFS, which seems to correspond quite neatly to the theoretical considerations underlying the Lightning Process.’

 

Theoretical basis of the Lightning Process

For more information on the established scientific theories that underpin the Lightning Process, please click on the links below:

  • Neuroplasticity – the ability of the pathways of the brain to change and develop in response to learning and repetition. (4) (5)
  • The physiological effects of Adrenaline, Nor-Adrenaline & Cortisol in the “stress” response and allostatic load. (6) (7)
  • The interaction of the body, brain and mind. (8) (9) (10)
  • The osteopathic theory of facilitation and the impact of changes in structure causing changes in function. (11) (12)
  • Positive psychology and the impact of neurobiology on health (13)
  • Language and its link to neurology and health (14) (15) (16) (17) (18)
  • Mindfulness and how it changes physiology (19) (20) (21)
  • Triggering improved physiology by accessing memories (22)(23)
