What is NIS about?
NIS (Neurological Integration System) bases it treatment methods on the neurophysiology principle that the brain governs optimum function of all body’s systems 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.
From time to time circuits in the body become disconnected (similar to a fuse blowing in your car or home.) Power is now reduced to that circuit, and this will effect function.
This is brought about when certain stresses to the body exceed our individual tolerances. These stresses can be physical, pathological, neurological or emotional.
Similarly, the brain no longer has full communication with the area of function, represented by that circuit. Wile the brain knows all about the symptom pattern that occurs as a result of stresses, it no longer ‘knows’ about the circuits that represent the underlying causes.
How are complaints addressed?
Your NIS practitioner uses a prioritized set of treatment protocols to evaluate the neurological circuitry and the facets of the body function they represent. This system, in simple terms could be thought of like a checklist that could be applied when servicing your car. These ‘checks’ evaluate all causal dysfunction that may have translated into symptoms.
NIS is unique. The practitioner is a facilitator in the feeding of data to and from the brain. To find out which areas of body function the brain is not fully controlling, a muscle test is used. A muscle test is a scientifically proven method of determining whether the brain is in ‘full communication’ with the body function. The muscle test acts a feedback indicator to determine functional confusion associated with any body system.
The Science behind NIS
In order for the optimum function to be restored, the brain must acknowledge the circuit fault. To do this, a NIS practitioner works with a defined area of neuroanatomy called the Post Central Gyrus. This area acts as a ‘receiving and dispatching’ center of the brain. When touched, sensations are mediated via neural pathways directly associated with the post central gyrus. For example – if you close your eyes and have someone touch just one hair on your head, you would be able to tell them exactly where that occurred. The post central gyrus knows or ‘acknowledges’ the relationship between the anatomical contacts the practitioner is holding.
What complaints may be helped by NIS?
With NIS you are able to treat a spectrum of complaints……
Structural – spinal, muscle, tendon, ligaments, joints, etc
Physical – immune, digestive, respiratory, heart, chronic conditions, etc
Pathological – infections, viral, bacterial, fungal, protozoan, etc
Hormonal – depression, fertility, female and male health, etc
Emotional – anxiety, bi polar, PTSD, etc
How are complaints viewed with NIS?
NIS addresses the real underlying causes to provide long-term, sustainable results. By evaluating ALL the body systems that make up physiological function collectively – for each individual – real causes can be addressed, and superior results achieved. Regardless of complaint, no two clients are the same. Each individual’s makeup is different and NIS addresses the specific needs and physiological tolerance of each individual. This is what makes an NIS treatment unique.
At each visit the goal is to determine and address what aspects of your body function the brain is not fully controlling. The approach is very non-invasive, stress and pain-free. This makes an NIS treatment suitable for the newborn baby through to the very aged, and those that are very sick or injured.
