The Development of NMT
NeuroModulation Technique – The Feinberg Method (NMT) was developed by Dr. Leslie S. Feinberg, D.C. in 2002. NMT has garnered a reputation as a highly effective, yet especially safe form of alternative healthcare. Many thousands of people all over the world have turned to NMT for relief from allergies, and autoimmune illnesses such as arthritis, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, lupus, myositis, scleroderma, inflammatory and other acute and chronic conditions.
Much of the focus of the NMT system is to optimize the immune system response to microorganisms that cause disease and for the encouragement of the beneficial flora required for health of the digestive and respiratory tracts and skin. Highly sensitive energetic NMT testing for body awareness of sub-clinical pathogens may signal their presence before they are numerous enough to show up on standard lab tests. NMT is also a powerful tool to address longstanding emotional and psychological complaints and phobias. Chronic pain patients often experience a reduction or even complete elimination of their pain within minutes of an NMT treatment. Many patients have found successful resolution of their health issues with NMT when conventional medical care and other types of “complementary “or “alternative” medicine have proven ineffective.
The Significance of Informational Medicine
The informational basis of illness and disease may be the most common, yet the most overlooked roadblock to healing. NMT is best described as “informational medicine,” because it works to identify and correct the informational source of illness – the confusion that can interrupt our innate healing mechanisms. Many people believe that illness results from some external affliction that viciously attacks the mind-body. The NMT position is that illness is the inevitable result of informational confusion and faults in the systems responsible for regulating body functions, making them unable to produce the balanced internal-body state that wellness requires. A good example of this is food allergy, where the immune system is so confused that the body damages itself by its misguided reaction to a food that it should see as beneficial nutrition.
Seen in this light, illness or “dis-ease” in the body happens by default when the mind-body is not sufficiently aware of its internal conditions and the requirements for healing.
The mind-body is a self-correcting system that always seeks to find and maintain the balanced internal state in which optimal health and vitality thrive.
The mind-body is an integrated unit of 50 trillion cells which organize themselves into the body’s various tissues, organs, structures, and systems. Intelligence is found at every level of mind-body organization – from the DNA of the first cell from which life begins to the memory and information processing structures in each cell of the body, from the neurological networks in organs and the autonomic nervous system to the top level of information processing – the brain. This intelligence includes both the “conscious mind” that provides us with the awareness we need to interact with people and events in our environment, as well as the “other than conscious” mind that is internally directed to quietly govern body function in the background without distracting the conscious mind from its responsibilities.
The clinical focus of NMT is on this other-than-conscious activity because that is where body function is determined. NMT uses a unique form of dynamic muscle response testing (also known as dynamic MRT) as we apply our NMT protocol to train the mind-body toward the more valid and complete informational state required to release our natural capacity to heal. Every bodily function originates as an instruction, a set of information that is relayed to the cells which are responsible for performing that function, triggering it to begin and end. Incorrect body function inevitably results from incorrect information, relayed to the wrong place, at the wrong time. Every person is unique in their genetic heritage – that range of physiological possibilities of which the mind-body is capable.
Every person also carries compromising effects of previous disease, trauma, and aging. Skilled practitioners use NMT as a tool to evaluate all of these unique factors and optimize the body’s resources to regain wellness.
NMT: A Unique, Powerful, and Scientific Protocol to Promote Healing
The mind-body was created with an amazing intelligence that allows it to produce a fully formed human being from a single cell and to develop into trillions of body cells communicating perfectly to heal the body and maintain vitality throughout its lifespan. When that communication fails, the NMT system is a unique and powerful tool by which the NMT practitioner enters into a carefully developed therapeutic dialog with the patient’s mind-body. NMT uses special routines of questions and corrective training statements that are organized into therapeutic templates known as NMT clinical pathways. Each of these pathways is a window into a specific area of body function. Because the NMT system is exceptionally thorough, there are NMT clinical pathways available to address just about every type of health problem. The NMT practitioner guides the patient through an NMT session by selecting the NMT clinical pathways to be used according to the priority the mind-body recognizes will be most effective. Follow-up sessions are used to evaluate how well the patient responded to the prior treatment session and determine treatment priority as we continue the NMT process.
Bodies suffer all sorts of negative impacts in life: trauma, toxins, infection, stressors including emotional, physical, chemical, malnutrition, and other challenges. Nutritional support, diet, and exercise are all important to help promote healing and prevent disease. NMT practitioners often recommend these as part of their treatment plan. Conventional medical care may also be needed, especially to support emergent conditions. NMT strives to never be in conflict with traditional medicine and to be complementary and supportive of medical care. In fact, NMT is often a vital tool used to assist conventional medicine in the process of healing illness and disease. No matter what other form of healthcare a patient may choose to receive, if the informational basis of illness has not been addressed, the healing resources of the mind-body simply cannot be applied efficiently. NMT is a powerful tool to help the mind-body freely realize its potential to heal.
NMT is safe and effective for all people, and particularly safe for the very young, very old, even pregnant women and infants. NMT is also equally effective for animals and is used by NMT-trained veterinarians and others interested in animal care.
Using NMT Along With Other Forms of Treatment
Other types of complementary or alternative medicines are often harmonious with NMT – acupuncture, chiropractic manipulation, homeopathy, and more. While other methods of informational medicine are available, none offer the rational, scientific, and carefully structured and thorough foundation that make NMT uniquely effective. Be sure to discuss with your NMT practitioner any other types of healthcare you may be interested in.
