Ultradian Rhythms and Your Immune System

By Greg Turner | April 2, 2020

In the early 1970s, while a student of Dr. Milton Erickson, Dr. Ernest Rossi discovered some research on Ultradian Rhythms. Ultradian Rhythms are natural biological rhythms of the human body that have an approximate period of 90 minutes to 120 minutes. I am sure you are aware of rhythms of your body that have a period of 24 hours. An example would be sleep. Every 24 hours you get sleepy and go to sleep. Rhythms such as the sleep cycle that happen every 24 hours are called Circadian Rhythms.

Body rhythms that cycle longer than a day, such as a woman’s menstrual cycle are known as Infradian Rhythms.

Rhythms that happen many times in a 24 hour period are called Ultradian Rhythms. Are you aware of your body’s ultradian rhythm? In the ultradian rhythm, a person’s physical and mental processes would be humming along in a highly turned on state. But every hour or so, the person experiences the physical and mental state quieting down and relaxing. Most are not aware of this internal cycle. And it is quite common for a person to need a break from work and smoke a cigarette during this quieting down phase.

Dr. Rossi brought ultradian rhythms to Dr. Erickson’s attention and they both agreed that the low phase of the ultradian rhythm was responsible for therapeutic trance and for deep healing of both the mental and physical.

After Erickson’s death in 1980, Dr. Rossi spent years and years researching ultradian rhythms and their relationship to hypnosis and trance and deep healing. Dr. Rossi wrote a book for the layman on ultradian rhythms, how to recognize them in yourself and how to use them for health and healing. The book is now out of print, but copies can always be found on the internet. Search for “The 20 Minute Break” by Dr. Ernest Rossi.

According to Rossi’s book, there are “hundreds of research papers that demonstrate that an overwhelming number of the mind-body systems run on the same 90 to 120 minutes ultradian rhythm of peak activity followed restorative troughs. In fact research indicates that all our major mind-body systems of self regulation – the autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system, and immune system have important 90 to 120 minutes cycles.”

One can only conclude from this that your immune system (you know, the system that fights off Covid-19) can be made much stronger if you learn to recognize your ultradian rhythms and learn to allow yourself to slip into a restorative healing mindset when the rhythm calls for it.

This is a recently published Youtube video showing Dr. Rossi talking about and demonstrating the healing response that takes place every 120 minutes. Experiencing Comfort

    "All my life I had been plagued with a phobia: I would gag nearly every time I tried to swallow a pill. Over the course of 3 sessions, I grew to trust Greg. Today I am calm and unafraid of taking pills."
    Diana B. Jillie
    "I was experiencing some ongoing fear of speaking in public since I came to live in the US. In 3 sessions, Greg helped me to overcome it. A few weeks ago I could do a singing presentation and I didn’t even noticed I was singing for a public! Yes, that worked perfectly! So, based on that happy outcome, I bought three more sessions with Greg to help me overcoming my fear of getting the Behind-the-wheel test, as I had failed a number of times and got really stuck on the process of having my California driver’s license. We’ve had only 2 sessions and here I am, waiting for my Driver’s License to come by Mail! Passed with flying colors in my driver’s practice test! YAY!!!! I just want to say this: don’t hesitate in asking for his help on “phobia” issues. You will be free of those disgusting feelings in no time with Greg’s help! Thank you my friend! You’ve helped me so much I will never forget you! "

    "Thank you for helping me to deal with anxiety and stress.I felt a real safety and trust working with you. I was easily able to let go and become calm and relaxed and drop in to a hypnotic state in your presence. The personalized hypnotic messages that you made for me I listen to a couple of times a day and are helping me to manage stress and stay relaxed and peaceful. Your voice is very soothing and comforting. It’s been tremendously helpful to me doing hypnosis with Greg.He really listen to my needs and gave me a lot of tools to work with. I will continue to see Greg as needed for support to work through obstacles."

    "I’m a person whose living depends on the ability to make cold calls. I’ve always avoided this dreaded task and consequently my income has sufferred as a result. I saw Greg Turner for only three hypnosis sessions. Since that time, my attitude towards cold calling has completely changed. I now enjoy making the calls, and as a result, my income is taking off. If you think hypnosis can help you, definitely give Greg a call"
    "Thanks Greg for helping me with my smoking. As you know I was not sure hypnosis would work for me. In fact, I was pretty uptight about it at first. Your presence and voice are so calm and soothing that after the first session I was able to relax and let you guide me into communicating with those parts of my inner mind responsible for my smoking. Thanks for helping me deal with my deamons because now I no longer have the desire to smoke."
    "Thanks Greg for helping me to quit smoking. I couldn’t have done it without the great insights into myself that you helped me see, and the hypnotic suggestions you gave me seem to still be working great!"
    Josh Reaves
    "Greg Turner, while shaking my hand and talking to me in a strange way, quickly and easily put me into a deep trance. I was really impressed, he has the most compelling hypnotic eyes and is an extremely powerful hypnotherapist and yet has a very safe and reassuring presence. I found Greg always to be completely professional and he has a tremendous knowledge and passion for hypnotherapy and how it can help people. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to explore any health issue or personal issue within their life. "
    Madeleine Scott
    "I needed help controlling certain cravings with food. Greg was patient and one week out and I am doing great, no cravings at all. Highly recommend hypnosis if you are ready to make a change and Greg will help you achieve that goal."
    "I attended a hypnosis session with Greg Turner. I wanted some extra help to keep one of my resolutions. I was concerned about having someone hypnotize me, but Greg answered all my questions and had me relaxed in a minute or two. Since our session, I’ve been moving ahead with my goal and feel great about it. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone wanting help to kick a habit or create a new one."
    Richard Villasana
    "I've known Greg since 1979 when he first heard about the amazing affects of hypnosis. He wanted to know everything about it and discovered the myriad ways hypnosis could change people's lives. Now as an experienced hypnotherapist he has the knowledge and experience to gently guide you along your path. I highly recommend Greg!"
    R.K. Boston
    "Greg Turner is a wise person as well as being a great hypnotherapist.He knows how to guide you to your own insights and connections. He lets you set the pace of each session and understands the wisdom of silence. He assisted me with a jump I wanted to make in my life and I am on to my next phase. I highly recommend Greg as a hypnotherapist. "
    Sandra S. Larkspur
    "Greg Turner has been a blessing in helping me to cope with stress and the compulsions that stress generates. Even though my permanent home is a far thousand and more miles from Greg the CD Greg gave me has been a long-distance reinforcement for me. I shall be forever grateful."
    "I came to Greg’s office and he explained the whole process very clearly and was genuinely interested in what I had to say. He also posed some interesting questions. I felt like I was finally confronting some real issues. I experienced trance, and came to find myself having thoughts and taking actions that were conducive to what I had laid out as my specific goals. My time with Greg has definitely brought about some changes in me and this is reflecting positively in both my personal and professional life."
    Arthur McCormack
    "Greg, I just got a raise and in part its due to my hypnosis sessions with you. As you know I dreaded the thought of having to get up and do presentations for senior members of my firm. My sessions with you taught me how to focus on the important parts of my speech and to forget about what they might be thinking of me. I now actually enjoy speaking in front of others and apparently my boss enjoys my presentations, as well. My raise more than covers the money I spent with you. Thanks"
    "Thanks Greg for helping with my eating habits. I am now eating much more slowly. Not only that, I now take home leftovers from a restaurant,and do not sit at my desk thinking about the chocolate that is around the office. You are a great hypnotist and I love my new life free of the control of food!!"
