Neurological Integration System
In your Naturopathic consultation, the Neurological Integration System is used to assist your body in attaining its optimum health.
The Neurological Integration System, devised and under constant research and development at Neurolink in New Zealand, fits perfectly into the principles of Naturopathic Medicine that seek to promote health by stimulating and supporting the body’s inherent powers to regain harmony and balance.
The Neurological Integration System involves a set of prioritised treatment protocols that evaluate your neurological circuitry to determine and address which aspects of your body function that your brain is not fully controlling. It uses a muscle test and contact with various parts of the body. It is non-invasive, stress and pain free and is suitable for the new-born baby through to the very aged (and also for animals).
About the Neurological Integration System
When each of us were born, we were born with a DNA template unique to each of us. That template determines 'normal' and optimum function. The brain operates within the parameters of that template. The parameters of that template represent our individual tolerances. Muscles, glands, tendons, ligaments etc all have tolerances. The tolerances of one person are very different to those of the next.
When all body systems function within our individual ‘template’ of parameters we have great health.
From time to time stresses cause our individual tolerances to be exceeded. They can be physical, pathological, chemical or emotional. This is when the body will start to show symptoms of pain and/or illness. An exceeded threshold may be thought of as a broken circuit. The brain is no longer in full ‘communication’ with certain facets of function. What happens now is the body endeavours to compensate.
These thresholds are essentially thresholds of stress. The meaning of stress, and how each individual reacts to it varies. How it affects our individual health will vary. Our tolerance levels to the same stresses are different. Therefore what is stressful for you to the extent of affecting your health will be completely different for the person next to you. That is why some people will always be bound to catch the latest bug that is going around, when another person can be subject to the same environment and never catch it.
The brain controls optimum function, through its neurological circuitry. It is constantly receiving information from every facet of the body, and in turn sends back ‘fine tuning’ messages, many times per second. This means every cell, gland, organ, muscle, tendon etc in the body is constantly monitored via these circuits to the brain.
The Neurological Integration System (NIS) uses a set of prioritised treatment protocols that assess the function of all the body’s systems, and all the factors that have or could translate themselves to symptoms. These protocols will identify aspects of physiology that are not functioning to the potential of the respective individual.
In evaluating the function of the body’s systems from a neurological point of view, this means the underlying CAUSES of symptoms are being addressed and not the symptoms themselves. NIS leverages the brain’s profound ability to restore the body and all its systems to full potential.
How Can NIS Help?
NIS addresses the whole spectrum of complaints:
• Emotional (in the context of the neurological implications).
More importantly, you should understand HOW complaints are viewed with NIS.
Prior to your NIS appointment, your complaint may have already been given a ‘label’: the name given to describe a particular group of symptoms. The list is infinite, but a few examples are: asthma, ADD, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, dermatitis, and the list goes on.
What these labels do is DESCRIBE symptoms, they do not ESTABLISH, causes. NIS does not treat the ‘label’ or the symptom pattern itself. Instead, it addresses the underlying issues driving the symptom pattern by restoring all the body’s systems to optimum function. As a matter of course, the symptom pattern will then resolve.
With that said, Neurolink’s philosophy is more concerned about the neurophysiological reasons that have caused your complaint than the complaint itself. For example if your complaint is allergies, NIS will address the reasons for the substance intolerance. If you depend on medication, NIS will address the reasons why you are needing to take the medication. If you have ongoing spinal pain and constantly need to have it manipulated, NIS will address the reasons why you need ongoing adjustments.
The following examples may give further insight to some of the causal factors that are considered through the NIS protocols. The same principles will apply to other ‘labels’.
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Diverticulitis and Crohn’s disease once again only label a batch of symptoms. As far as Neurolink is concerned they are expressions of incomplete digestion. This results in a chronic and toxic build-up to affect the liver, gallbladder, and pancreatic functions. Pain, constipation, diarrhoea, and bloating are symptomatic of this condition. Neurolink looks to screen for, and address why the body is not completing the digestion process.
