What’s Stopping You From Growing Your Network? Technique?

I met Dr. Chris Reid a few years back, and I have been more aware of my profession ever since.  His dedication to chiropractic philosophy and continuing education can not be mirrored or mocked.

Imagine if you were running an extremely successful diversified/heavy-force manual adjusting practice, and you turned the whole thing upside down for new research and new concepts.  (1)

Can you make a change? Of course.

Will you?

Up to you.

Dr. Reid learned Koren Specific Technique so he could “ask the body” by using a binary biofeedback challenge called the Occipital Drop to check and correct subluxation and shut off the stress response.  He also started using the NeuroInfiniti/Stress Response Evaluation as a part of his Neurologically Based Chiropractic examination.

No matter your level of success or technique, do you think you could benefit from technology that proves the need for your care?  Allows you to read the nervous system and correct subluxation in order while never over adjusting?

What’s stopping you from growing your network?

 

The DCTree Vision—Acknowledge the Strength of Our Heritage

I have seen many changes to the Chiropractic Profession in my 38+ years of clinical practice in Port Angeles, WA.  Many of those changes have created improved clinical results.  However, the most disturbing change I have witnessed within the profession is the trend toward
suppression of the founding principles of chiropractic.
  Done in an attempt to “fit-in” to a model originating from other elements of the health care system, it is a denial of what we are at our core. My perspective on this subject originated in my youth—from my first encounter with chiropractic at the age of 10.  In the early 1960’s, my 85 year old chiropractor, Dr. Jennings, told me stories of his teacher, Dr. D.D. Palmer.  He graduated from the first class at Palmer School of Chiropractic. Dr. Palmer taught that the body was smart enough to heal itself if not
obstructed by subluxation, poisoned from the outside or influenced by negative “auto-suggestion”.

 Dr. Palmer taught that the body had in “intelligence”, which he named “Innate”, that is part of a great Universal Intelligence.  This is a concept that I also came to believe; that we are all a piece of something greater than what is revealed by our human 3D experience.  This idea is the very basis of chiropractic. The early background of my chiropractic exposure has influenced my entire career.  Each working day for the past 38 years, I have pondered these concepts as they apply to each of my 400,000+ individual patient encounters.

What is the best way to honor the path of the Innate Intelligence for the health improvement of the person right in front of me?

The nutritional issues confronting modern America has been a recurring theme.  Although Dr. Palmer acknowledged the problems of ingested poison, he probably never envisioned a world where everyone was consuming artificial food.  Things like genetically modified organisms, pesticide and herbicide ladened vegetables, high fructose corn syrup, chemical vitamin supplements and trans fats did not exist in the early 20th Century.

In clinical practice, I lived the experience of having patient healing paralyzed by chemical poisoning from the artificial food they
routinely consumed.  I have also witnessed dramatic health improvement when the diet is corrected or the proper organic whole food supplement is recommended. I have attended over a hundred nutrition-focused post-graduate classes, trying to compensate for the inadequate nutrition training I received in chiropractic school.

I found myself attracted to the nutrition classes that emphasized the power of the properly performed muscle-response test.  The idea of matching a person’s nutritional program to their nervous system had a great deal of appeal to my Innate Intelligence-driven way of practicing chiropractic.  Although I knew that each muscle testing system I tried had some flaws, I found the overall concept to have tremendous value.  I continuously worked to increase my skill and reduce the flaws.

One of the flaws of muscle response testing was noted by Autumn Smith, a nutritional therapist who worked in my office.  She stated that any muscle testing “conversation” with the nervous system should be at the cellular level.  What type of nutritional intervention was needed to improve cellular regeneration? Immediately, it was clear to me that she was completely correct, since the cells make the tissues then the tissues constitute the organs.

Up until that point, all nutritional muscle-response testing had been a conversation with the organs, not the cells.  Together, we developed a new type of testing aimed at conversing with the cells instead of the organs.  The process required that we test within the
body’s energy resonance field.

Named for the process of morphinogenesis, identified in the early 20th Century, we called our new testing procedure Morphogenic
Field Technique or MFT.

I have been teaching our breakthrough technique throughout the United States since 2009.  We were contacted by then-chiropractic student Cory St. Denis, DCTree Co-Founder and Creative Director, about teaching an MFT class for the DCTree in St. Louis in early 2014.  I was very excited to participate in this inaugural DCT event when I learned of his vision for all chiropractic students, the future of our profession.

The DCTree team desired to create a social network to expose chiropractic students to Innate-based healing.  This idea immediately struck a chord in me.  Cory expressed his concern that chiropractic students are not being exposed to effective clinical healing procedures that featured Innate-based analysis.  He correctly believed that knowledge of the existence of these procedures was being suppressed by the chiropractic teaching institutions.

Cory was wishing to push-back against an environment which did not allowing for a free-flow of information about the best ways to create health improvement in patients.  As a former chiropractic student, I found it easy to relate to his frustration.   I remember having the same feeling when I was a student 40 years ago.

I am proud and pleased that The DCTree reached out to partner with MFT as the nutrition-leg of their Innate-based package of
techniques, along with Koren Specific Technique, Neuroinfiniti/Neurologically Based Chiropractic, Poter Vision, and The Masters Circle.  Thank you Cory and the DCTree team, for all you are doing to bring chiropractic back to its roots!!

Communicating with Innate: Binary biofeedback Part 4

We are only limited by the questions we ask

Using a binary biofeedback device (such as muscle testing, the occipital drop [OD], the short leg reflex and many others) makes it possible to obtain information about a patient quickly, easily and accurately.

Initially Koren Specific Technique (KST) used the patient’s occiput to obtain  information. It was later discovered (actually re-discovered) that information from the patient’s body could be obtained by using a surrogate – for example, we could obtain information from a mother’s body about her child while she was holding the child.

But then we found the mother didn’t have to hold the child, anyone could hold the child and their body would give us information.

Non-local connection

Then we discovered a “non-local” (non-physical) application of this phenomenon: the mother or any person who was a surrogate didn’t have to be touching the child. We could get information from their body about the child if they just thought of the child.

This phenomenon got “curiouser and curiouser” when we discovered the doctor could be a surrogate for his/her patient. The doctor could get information from his or her own OD (or biofeedback device) about the patient.

This aspect of Koren Specific Technique means the doctor can use him/herself as a binary (yes/no) testing device. It’s a very accurate and very versatile means of getting information. We gave a few examples of this in the previous article.

So now we were no longer limited to pushing, pulling or otherwise challenging vertebrae and body parts to find if they were subluxated or under stress.

We could ask questions (verbally or mentally) to get information about their body. We discovered a whole new world of possibilities – we were only limited by the questions we asked. What kind of questions?  

The first question

Using KST we discovered that nearly everyone working on patients was missing a very important element in subluxation correction – the posture of subluxation. We found that subluxations were posture specific.

Subluxations are sneaky things that come and go as a person moves, sits, stands, lies down and assumes different postures. Chiropractors often insist on working on patients as they lie face down on a table, but who gets subluxated in that position?

So KST’s first question deals with the position in which the patient should be checked or analyzed. Standing? Sitting? Prone? Supine? Posture of injury? Emotional posture? We could now locate (and correct) subluxations that otherwise would never turn up by having a patient assume different postures.

The most annoying teachers

Which patients teach us the most?Those who respond quickly? Or those who don’t respond to care or who plateau? They annoy us and cause us grief but teach us the most. KST is built on failure. Well, hopefully temporary failure, as we try to discover what we’re missing in our most difficult patients.

What am I missing?

KST is a very quick and easy way to locate and correct structural subluxations, fixations, distortions, imbalances and other physical stresses in any posture or while doing any movement. But what do we do when the patient is still not responding? Simple, we keep asking questions.

“What am I missing?” we must ask. “Is it here?” “Is it there,” “This posture?” “That posture?” The body speaks binary so the questions need to be phrased so the answer will be either yes or no.

The next questions

After exhausting body structure we learned to ask about many other common things undermining a person’s health such as dehydration, dental issues, emotional issues* and dropped organs.

For example, we can ask, “Is the patient dehydrated?” We’ll get a yes or no. If we get a no we look somewhere else. If we get a yes we can ask, “On a scale of 1 to 10 how dehydrated?” A severely dehydrated person can have a wide range of health issues from musculoskeletal pain to high blood pressure (and more). It’s the same with many other factors that are typically ignored. Using this tool we become explorers, searching for the myriad factors that may affect a person’s health and wellbeing.

The last question

I call it the last question but it can be asked at any time. That question is, “Is there anything this person is doing that is damaging their health?” Is it something they are drinking? Eating? Breathing? Touching? Is there something in their environment that is damaging their health? Is it in their home? Bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc. On their property? In their car? In their workplace? In the gym?  At someone else’s home?

For example I asked one patient’s OD the last question and I got a yes (an OD). At work? No. Car? No. Home? Yes. Bathroom? No. Kitchen? No. Living room? Yes. Hmmm. I asked, “Is there something in your living room that is affecting your health?” (When all else fails ask the patient.)

She knew it immediately, “Yes, it my husband’s #%^$% fish tank. It’s making me sick. It’s full of algae, he never cleans it….”

Explore this aspect of healthcare. You’ll be amazed at what your patient’s bODy will reveal.

Next?

And then we discovered ways of getting information we hadn’t expected.

See part 5.

*NET (Neuro Emotional Technique) developed by Scott Walker, DC has an excellent flow chart for locating “emotional subluxations.” KST as well as other mind-body procedures also have emotional flowcharts. Any and all may be used

Communicating with Innate: Binary biofeedback Part 3

Whose bODy is it anyway?

Binary biofeedback devices have been a part of healthcare since time immemorial. They are a quick, easy to use and accurate method of obtaining information about the body.

Using these devises Koren Specific Technique (KST) brings chiropractic to a new level of effectiveness and speed and makes practice more exciting.  Doctors have discovered a new world of healing using KST.

The more we explored the use of binary biofeedback devises, it got “curiouser and curiouser.”

The next discovery – non-locality

The biofeedback information correlated no matter what kind of binary biofeedback device we used – the occipital drop (OD), short leg reflex, manual muscle testing (MMT), applied kinesiology (AK), still point and others. All were in agreement when performed by those skilled in the different procedures.

But we soon discovered there was a non-local (off the body) way to use a biofeedback device: in addition to using the patient’s body to get information (“yes” or “no”) about their own body, we could use someone else’s body to get information about the patient’s body.

For example, if a baby were sleeping in her mother’s arms I’d say to the mother, “Don’t wake her up, I’ll check the baby through you” and I’d use the mother’s OD to ask about the health of the child she was holding.

How did patients relate to this?

I expected a lot of weird looks in the office when I used the OD in this “surrogate” (by definition, using a substitute or having one take the place of another) manner. But patients as a whole took this for granted; the mother wouldn’t bat an eye. Perhaps parents naturally know that they are connected to their children.

From surrogate to surrogate

Checking babies through parents while they were being held was one thing, but checking a child through the parent even when the parent wasn’t physically holding the child was stretching it a bit. But I found I could use the mother’s OD (or any biofeedback device) to check her child. It appears that they were “connected” even when they weren’t physically touching.

This is referred to as Era 111 medicine or non-local healthcare as described by Larry Dossey, MD in Recovering The Soul. Non-locality is related to the collective unconscious, quantum physics and prayer, which we’ll touch upon in this series. But I digress.

Surrogates galore

Let’s continue with the next discovery. We found that getting information from a surrogate wasn’t limited to using the mother, father, grandmother, grandfather or any relative of the patient. A friend or even (most surprising) a stranger’s body could be used.

Why limit this application to children? The patient didn’t have to be a child; I could use the OD from virtually anyone to get information about anyone else. We could use a third person’s body to find out about a patient.

The doctor as surrogate

But then we had another leap. We discovered that the doctor could use his or her own body (his or her own binary biofeedback device) to get a yes or no about the patient’s body. The doctor could be a surrogate for the patient. This was easiest (in my opinion) done when the OD was used.

Surrogate work was getting more interesting and versatile.

The advantages of this approach

In hindsight it was a simple leap to using one’s own OD to check patients. Why grab a patient’s skull for an OD, and why bother someone else when you could use your own? It was so easy. The doctor or practitioner could be a surrogate for their patient simply by looking at or thinking about the patient with the intent that they’d like to get information from that person.

This is very useful in situations where you simply cannot reach the patient’s OD. That would be, for example, when they lay face up (supine), when they have really, really thick hair and you can’t even feel their occiput, and when they are Rastafarian (those dreadlocks are just about impossible). But it was also useful when checking an autistic that didn’t like to be touched, a hyperactive who wouldn’t stop moving, a sleeping baby, an adult in a coma or in other situations where the patient’s skull could not be used as an OD.

It is a simple method to get information easier and faster than you would otherwise. And then we made another leap – truly off the body.

Where did we go? Find out in Part 4.

Communicating with Innate: Binary biofeedback Part 2

Using biofeedback devices in rather powerful ways

Binary biofeedback devices have been a part of healthcare since time immemorial. They are a quick, reproducible method of obtaining accurate information about the body and body/mind.

What are they? You don’t find these devices in a store (or even online). They are autonomic physiological reactions to stress. We can use them to obtain information about patients.

Examples of binary biofeedback devices are AK (applied kinesiology), manual muscle testing (MMT), the short leg reflex, the occipital drop (OD), the still point (CranioSacral Therapy) and even a “gut” feeling, among others.

In order to use them the practitioner employs the three Cs:

The three Cs: Challenge, Check, and Correct

1.      Challenge: First we challenge or “ask” the body or mind/body a question. Challenging may be done in many ways (see below). Practitioners typically ask for the location of stress, subluxations, blockages, interferences, imbalances, disharmony etc.

2.      Check: Now we check to see if the challenge caused a biofeedback reaction. In AK a muscle reaction is checked for, in CranioSacral therapy practitioners feel for a “still point”, in Koren Specific Technique (KST) we check for an occipital drop or OD. The next thing done is:

3.      Correct: The practitioner makes a correctionto release the stress, subluxations, blockages, interferences, imbalances, disharmony, etc. that the biofeedback located. The correction can be done in various ways depending on how the practitioner practices.

Thousands of doctors are using the OD (or similar biofeedback devices) in this manner.

Physical, verbal, mental

A fascinating clinical discovery (actually a re-discovery) was that the binary biofeedback device could, in addition to responding to a physical challenge, also respond to a verbal or mental challenge.

The OD (or any biofeedback device) responds even if the practitioner does not physically touch a patient’s body; the practitioner can verbally, mentally or visually ask/challenge and the patient’s body will respond with a “yes” (an OD) or a “no” (no OD) or a strong or weak muscle or a short leg reaction and numerous other ways as well.

VanRumpt’s disaster

Although ancient, this non-physical response was re-discovered by Richard VanRumpt, DC who developed Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT). Dr. VanRumpt first checked the patient using a mental challenge and then performed a physical challenge. The physical and mental challenges had 100% reliability.

Dr. VanRumpt announced his finding at a major DNFT conference. It was a bold statement announcing that the practitioner didn’t have to physically challenge a body part to elicit a short leg reflex – the mere thought of the challenge could elicit a reaction.

Perhaps it was the time (it was in the ‘60s). Perhaps it was the (then) more medically repressive healing environment, perhaps it was fear of medical attack or perhaps it was the mechanistic model that dominated healthcare.

Whatever the reason, VanRumpt’s revelation was a business and professional disaster. He was ridiculed and rejected by many of his followers who could not accept this “innate to innate communication,” as he termed it.

Hesitant

I must admit that when I re-discovered this phenomenon I was initially hesitant to openly teach it. How would my students relate to it? Would they walk out and never return as happened to VanRumpt?

I felt obliged to impart to the students everything I knew. Honesty required it; it felt unethical to withhold valuable and useful information.

I continue to teach KST that way. In the spirit of empirical philosophy (of which chiropractic belongs) we humbly respect the wisdom the body reveals.

Following the body (or the bODy as we say in KST) is a non-linear, non-intellectual approach. We in chiropractic discuss the wisdom of the body as if it were an abstract philosophical concept. But it is more than that; it is real and it is powerful – why not use it in day-to-day clinical practice?

Therefore, no matter how out-of-the-box a discovery initially appears if it works and is helpful it is taught. But the next discovery really shocked me.

In part 3 we’ll see an unusual way to obtain this information.

Communicating with Innate: Binary biofeedback Part 1

Biofeedback may be a modern day word but it is of ancient lineage and used in many healthcare systems today. A body biofeedback device (or mechanism) is similar to a lie-detector test – it reveals body changes when a question is asked.

What kinds of changes? What kinds of questions? Let’s explore this.

Many biofeedback devices

There are many different biofeedback devices that are used in healthcare today. Common ones are Applied Kinesiology (AK) and manual muscle testing (MMT) that use muscle strength or muscle “locking” to obtain an immediate yes/no or binary response to a challenge or question. Some other binary biofeedback devices used in healthcare are the short leg reflex, the sweat response, “still point” (used in CranioSacral therapy) and the occipital drop.

KST practitioners use a binary biofeedback device called the occipital drop (OD). The OD is the apparent movement (or “drop”) of one side of the occipital bone in response to a challenge or question.

How it this used?

First a body part is “challenged” or questioned (physically or mentally) and the body’s binary biofeedback device is checked for a “yes” (a stress response) or “no” (no stress response). It’s a “yes/no” or binary system.

Using a “yes/no device” we can ask the body (KST practitioners refer to the OD as “asking the bODy”) various questions to obtain information.

Doing the OD

After a challenge the practitioner tests to see if the occiput of the skull is level or not. If it is level there is no stress response. If the occiput is uneven then there is a stress response.

Why KST prefers the OD

The occipital drop (OD) has certain advantages over the more widely used AK and MMT or the short leg reflex. One advantage is that there is no muscle fatigue as can occur with both AK and MMT. The OD can be comfortably performed dozens of times a minute with no fatigue.

The advantage the OD has over the short leg reflex is that the OD is not limited to the patient lying face down. The OD may be performed while the patient is standing, sitting, lying down or assuming other postures. The practitioner using the short leg reflex is limited to prone or supine postures.

As you’ve probably guessed, the OD, as with any biofeedback device, is ultimately a communication tool.

What kinds of questions?

What kinds of questions can we ask? All kinds of questions: questions about the physical body, questions about emotional stress or incidents, questions about physiology, questions about any body part, questions regarding the best posture in which the patient should be worked on. In KST we have a saying: you are only limited by the questions you ask.

To help speed the process people who use KST or other biofeedback devices employ a flowchart or protocol to quickly locate the precise area of the patient’s body/mind they wish to address.

Of course the flowchart questions will depend on whether the practitioner is a chiropractor, dentist, psychologist, massage therapist, medical doctor, osteopath or other practitioner. Flowcharts or lines of questioning may be customized to a particular profession or discipline. For example, a sophisticated emotional flow chart was developed by Scott Walker, DC who teaches Neuro Emotional Technique (NET). It is excellent at locating emotional “subluxations” or areas of emotional stress.

The doctor is affected by its use?

We soon realized that practicing the OD on patients had an interesting effect on the doctor. This was an unexpected discovery. Doctors began commenting that after practicing KST they would often “know” the answer before checking for the OD. When they did check with the patient’s OD their “knowing” was always confirmed. Apparently they began developing increased sensitivity to their patients.

I soon learned that this was not unique to KST practitioners. AK, leg check and other biofeedback practitioners also commented upon this increased sensitivity when they paid attention to it.

This “knowing” is much more common than we were aware. It happens in day-to-day practice all the time.

For example, a common experience of many doctors is the following: the patient is lying face down as the doctor enters the room. The doctor casually touches the patient who suddenly exclaims, “That’s the spot.”

“What a coincidence,” the doctor thinks, “I found the area of involvement before the patient told me.”

When we use biofeedback devices, these “coincidences” happen all the time.

In part 2 we’ll see how to incorporate this phenomenon in our practice.

 

A Doctor Who Knows His Place

A chiropractor working for Cancer Treatment Centers Of America

Tedd Koren, DC

The August 19, 2013 issue of Chiropractic Economics had a disturbing article by Jeffrey Sklar, DC entitled “Sleep disrupted by ostomy complicated by cervical radiculopathy.”  Why is this dull sounding article disturbing?

Dr. Sklar woks at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.  In fact he’s the “director of chiropractic services.”

Wow, I guess that means he helps patients work with MDs addressing cancer from a holistic perspective, dealing with issues such as toxicity, homeopathy, herbs, emotional release, chiropractic subluxation correction (for everyone all the time of course) and working to give patients a true alternative to poison, cut and burn – chemotherapy, surgery and radiation.

Bad guess.

The patient was treated for colon cancer that had metastasized.  The patient had parts of his liver removed,an omentectomy (a bizarre surgical procedure wherein tissue surrounding an organ is removed), and gall bladder removal.  But he received no chiropractic care – that is until he complained of neck pain.

Dr. Sklar writes: “The patient found that sitting for several hours to receive chemotherapy had become painful.”

Well. Now we’ll call in the chiropractor.  That’s all they are really good for anyway, getting rid of pain right?

Dr. Sklar apparently did a good job.  His “joint mobilization” relieved the patient’s pain so that now he was able to sleep the night and even more importantly sit comfortably through his chemotherapy.

It’s hard to read this paper without getting ill.  Is this the best that over one hundred years of chiropractic can offer people with cancer – we’ll help your “quality of life” so you can endure chemotherapy?

Chemotherapy is torture to most patients.  Its effectiveness is practically zero and the cost can be hundreds of thousands of dollars.  As Charlotte Gerson said when commenting on chemo:  “You can’t heal with poison.”

Chiropractors should know this. But how do we address can?

Not by working at Cancer Centers of America.  All you will be is a peon working under the medical model.   They are in charge, throwing you the scraps.

Shouldn’t every cancer patient be checked for subluxations?

I am not against Dr. Sklar’s adjusting patients in need.  Of course people with cancer and with any condition or with no medically diagnosed condition should get their body checked for subluxations.

But must we sell out chiropractic in the process?

Adjusting While Angry

 

The cause of subluxations is often multifactorial. That means that people get subluxations when subjected to a number of stressors at the same time that overwhelm the individual’s resistance.

I have three examples from my files.

Example one. A chiropractor comes to see me with severe wrist pain. She’s already been to a few other DCs who tried a variety of techniques to no avail. She had also gone to a craniosacral therapist and other bodywork practitioners, all to no avail. The wrist is in such pain it is affecting her ability to practice.

“I got hurt while adjusting my patient,” she said.

“OK, get into the posture of subluxation,” I said. “Go into the posture you were in when you got hurt.’

When she adjusted patients she bent over them and twisted herself a little as they lay on the table. As she assumed that position I checked and adjusted her. Little improvement.

As a general rule, when people don’t clear out quickly look to the mind. There is often an emotional component. Let’s go there.

“Do you remember what you were thinking or feeling when the pain began?”

“Yes, my husband had just gotten home and he really upset me because he didn’t call before he left work. I was thinking of that while I was adjusting the patient.”

I asked her to get into the physical posture of subluxation and then think of how upset she was at her husband. So she’s in the physical AND the emotional posture of subluxation.

“Picture yourself at the office bent over a patient giving an adjustment and your husband comes home and upsets you.”

Subluxations reappeared that had been cleared out a moment ago. But then again, she hadn’t been in the emotional posture of subluxation. Those subluxations were now adjusted.

“The wrist and hand pain are gone,” she reported. After months of suffering she was able to work again.

Example two. Patient’s knee is hurting. Also lower back pain.

“I was cleaning out my house,” he said.

I checked and adjusted. Not much change. Time to ask about emotions.

“What kind of mood were you in as you cleaned up the place?”

“My daughter refused to help. I was angry at her because I had to do all the work myself.”

I had the patient get into the emotional posture of subluxation. As he thought of how upset he was with his daughter I adjusted his subluxations. The knee pain disappeared.

Example three. “I’ve been impotent since my divorce two years ago,” said an otherwise healthy male.

Physical subluxations were corrected but emotional ones were the key. “Think about how you felt about the divorce,” I said.

Immediately subluxations appeared where before there had been none. They were corrected. “Now think about the financial hit you took from the divorce.” More subluxations appeared and were corrected. “Think about the feeling of betrayal.” Again more subluxations arose and were corrected. We continued along this line until I could not find subluxations popping up no matter what he thought about his divorce and ex.

The next day he wrote me saying he was back to normal.

Moral of the story – if problems are not corrected look to the posture of subluxation, emotional as well as physical.

What if problems still persist? DD Palmer once said that toxicity is a main cause of dis-ease. The most common source of severe toxicity is the mouth, specifically the teeth – root canals, mercury fillings, infections, cavitations. But that’s another article.

I wonder if Harvey Lillard was upset about something when he bumped his head while in a cramped position? Maybe about his dentist? We’ll never know, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
