Without question our own spirit bodies are completely capable of diagnosing any illness and in fact perfecting our bodies health. I will actually go further than that. The spirit if assisted and through intent is completely able to restore you to prime and to sustain that.
I no longer consider it a coincidence that Jesus was aged in his early thirties. Thus he demonstrates what is possible.
Thus this work is a demonstration of good beginnings on just that path. On the other hand I am also sure that the other side does not owe us anything, but will usually support good health if we ask.
In the meantime this is a useful insight. Now ask a question? how can the other side assist you?
Through his own personal experience, which changed the course of his life, he learned that the next great, “qualitative step” in medicine and healthcare is the integration of the spiritual dimension, the awakening of spiritual consciousness, holistic education and holistic health.
Interview John Kortum
"John Kortum has been a Residential Trainer at The Monroe Institute since 1998, but his interests vary widely in the field of consciousness. Whether leading the Gate way Voyage, working one-on-one with clients, guiding paranormal expeditions around the globe or developing new medical assessment procedures, he’s always on the go.
His unique form of medical perception has been clinically proven and health care providers seek his assistance whenever conventional diagnostic methods fail. However, to merge his perceptions with the diagnostic nucleus of the health care delivery system presents a truly complex challenge. But who is he?
John is an autodidact. There was no earth-shattering event that brought significant understanding, no ancestral lineage to promote his self-discovery. John simply noticed during his childhood that he used his sensory perceptions in ways that others did not. As he came of age, the drill and repetition of
academia brought no additional insights. He postponed mainstream educational pursuits in search of answers and understanding his way, through experience and empirical investigation. In 1999 he formed New Learning Frontier, L.L.C., to establish Generally Accepted Intuitive Appliations (GAIA).
By refining his heuristic for perceptive health care, he continues to expand our knowledge base of the human potential to fully deploy the assets of the mind."
We reviewed John Kortum's recent book about his diagnostic technique in the April 2010 issue of the Energetic Rejuvenation Newsletter. We are following the presentation with this interview. To find out more about John and to contact him visit his website at http://www.johnkortum.com/
how long do you think a person needs to train to be proficient (meaning able to practice)?
If we are talking about the ability to see the indicators, there is no pre-determined amount of time that ensures proficiency. Learning the Kortum Technique is much the same as learning to play a musical instrument or sport, individual results will vary. There will always be those who catch on quickly or have a natural proclivity to extending the reach of their senses, and there will always be those who will excel with practice.

However, the ability to see indicators is only the beginning of the technique. What is essential to developing proficiency with the body’s language of health and healing is the recognition that the depth of learning and application is coupled to how deeply you are willing to explore and examine your own life. Since the detection of the organ indicators relies on the integration of your sensory system, the integration of self, or perhaps I should say the integration of what you can gather about your own self-awareness becomes paramount.
Today’s instant social culture seeks drive-thru transformation and healing or mastery status after a single weekend workshop. The Kortum Technique does not work that way, necessarily, because as you progress in your learning you will eventually encounter the challenge of penetrating the in visible barriers, in other words invisible assumptions, from which you live your life. That’s both the good news and the bad news, because we often get settled into our assumptions and want to preserve them. But we cannot move forward and stand still at the same time; we cannot hold on and let go at the same time. Rates of learning will also depend on how quickly, and completely, a person can release the perceptual ballast in their life.
Are there any prerequisites to proficiency to this technique, such as anatomy, knowledge of pathology, etc.?
There are no scientific or academic prerequisites for the Kortum Technique. Of course having a common knowledge of the body’s major organs and systems is required when reporting the data. At the same time, there is a tremendous amount of detail to learn about the body’s indicators and their intensity levels.
Those details, such as the modifiers that I have discussed in the book, can only be learned during the process of grasping the technique and not before hand.
Are there any handicaps?
The expectations of the rational mind.
What do you have to do? How is the typical training? Could you learn from the book or coaching is necessary?
The medical research team and I had several conversations about the methods and duration of training that would most likely be effective for introducing people to the body’s language for health. Initially, we talked about the book being written solely as a training manual, but the more I wrote, I began to include descriptions of the empowering perceptual experiences we, as human beings, have every day that go unnoticed in order to substantiate the practical applications. The more examples I included, the more I found myself choosing examples from childhood, because the formative years are where most of our perceptual liberties have their foundations.
As I continued to write, the examples from my own childhood emerged as a personal narrative around the clinical research trials. The inquisitive nature of the narrative eventually led to questions
that we would test during the research trials. Reciprocally, the evidence produced from the research trials augmented the importance of the personal narrative.
As the manuscript matured, I realized that the content went beyond a training manual. The human element came forth as an integral component.
Eventually, the medical research team and I arrived at a manuscript that is mixed with observation, explanation, narrative, and instruction for creating awareness about the body’s blueprint that works very well. The chapter at the end of the book that includes illustrations of the indicators is one way of reaching people wherever they live in the world.
Ideally, working in the presence of someone is the best way to interact with the indicators; however, the illustrations can be applied in more than one way as a point of educational origin.
First, the description of the indicators will let you know what it is you are seeking to perceive; whenever you look in the mirror, or in the faces of the people you see every day. Secondly, if you have a family member or friend that has already been diagnosed with a health imbalance in a specific organ, you can examine the illustration of the indicators for that organ and look for consistency when you spend time with your friends or loved ones.
I understand from the book that there is a pattern observation skill to develop and also a kinesiological like part for organ assessment. Are those being developed simultaneously or sequentially?
If the concepts of the Kortum Technique and the experience of blending your senses are new to you, then as you look at the illustrations in the last chapter of the book, you will notice that some are predominantly visually based. These indicators, such as the blood indicator, are a useful place to introduce yourself to the experience of blending your senses.
Because once you become familiar with the more visually based indicators, and move along the scale of increasing your kinesthetic perception, then the “feeling” aspect of the technique becomes more obvious.
For anyone who is interested in developing the technique,much the same as when I taught members of the medical research team in Bethesda, I would find out where their natural sensory perspective already exists and move forward from there.
The book is a well defined introduction to the technique but eventually I plan to offer training seminars to proliferate the use of the technique in the health care delivery system.
Once the information is obtained - what is the path to a healing protocol? How does one cooperate with the medical profession and other alternative therapeutic modalities?
The path to a healing protocol begins with the identification of the indicators that a person projects. The next step is to determine the degrees of those indicators and if the indicators present are with or without pathology. If any pathology is present then medical care from a licensed health care provider would obviously be the next step along the path.
Simultaneously, I would initiate a conversation with the person about the message their body is bringing forward. If no pathology is currently present, the person may want to stay in contact with their physician. They may want to have check-ups more frequently or shorten the period of time between standard medical tests. For example, if medical science recommends that a woman has routine mammograms every 1-2 years, she may want her medical doctor to evaluate her health more frequently, perhaps every 6 months. That way if the indicators suggest that pathology is about to manifest, their health care provider can identify the illness in the introductory stages. As we all know, early identification and treatment plays a significant role in health recovery.
In regard to the message their body is bringing forward, they can begin the process of self-auditing as I have described in the book. They can also meet with a transpersonal therapist.
The most fascinating feature about the body’s language of health is that when you address or perhaps confront the limiting content in your life that your body is bringing forward through a health imbalance, the indicators respond to the level of effectiveness you apply in addressing the limiting content in your life.
Could we have a practical example?
The book includes several examples of the ways people can overcome the limiting content in their lives and subsequently their illness. One example that comes to mind is during an indicator assessment a member of the medical research team substantiated the indicator assessment with a formal diagnosis of lower intestinal imbalance. By using the intra-organ communication techniques described in the book, the medical team and I were able to present the patient with clues from her suppressed childhood trauma that her body was bringing forth. As the patient began to elaborate and
confirm the accuracy of the information, her intestinal indicator began to reduce in intensity. The interactive component of the indicators makes this a very effective tool at honing in on the core issues, because, after all, the body never lies.
ER. Do you have a word of wisdom to the ER readers?
JK. If you heal before you get sick, then you will never get
