Discover NeuroModulation Technique in Portland Oregon

Announcing a June Universal Care Level A in Portland, OR

NeuroModulation Technique (NMT)Discover the one cause of illness and pain that no pill can cure and no surgery can repair.

Every person has a blueprint for healing, an innate capacity to transform illness into wellness. When that blueprint is distorted and the mind-body’s systems to repair and restore itself have become confused, the body becomes stuck in illness and fails to heal itself the way it was designed to do. Discover the NeuroModulation Technique (NMT) method of “informational medicine” and learn the key to unraveling and correcting the informational basis of illness, and suffering.

Here is what you will learn:

  • A new way to understand the way the universe is structured and how it functions that will convince you of the scientific foundation of NMT.
  • Two unique forms of muscle response testing that allow you to accurately find out why the body is ill and let you train it to heal.
  • Special dialogs called NMT “clinical pathways” instantly retrain the mind-body to restore its innate capacity to heal including:

NMT Universal Care Toxin Pathway: Learn how to train the body to detox itself without the need for special supplements or medications. Laboratory studies have shown 2x-3x increases in heavy metal elimination – solely by application of the NMT Toxin Pathway.

NMT Universal Care Infectious Agent Pathway: Ever wonder why one person in a family gets an infection and another doesn’t. It’s all about how accurately and efficiently the immune system is reading and responding to the challenge of pathogenic microbes. NMT Universal Care retrains the immune system to recognize and respond to infection – bringing a quick end to respiratory, digestive, skin, and other types of infection without dangerous antibiotics.

NMT Universal Care Allergy and Autoimmune Pathway: Allergy and autoimmune diseases are conditions that clearly reflect confusion of the body’s systems to regulate its function. How else to explain why our own immune system would attack the body or produce illness in response to foods or environmental substances that offer no real threat. NMT resolves allergies of all types by finding and fixing the nervous system confusion that causes them – often immediately.

NMT Universal Care Sensory-Motor Pathway: Resolve pain, even pain of months or years duration in minutes. This incredible NMT module for control of musculoskeletal symptoms like pain and stiffness succeeds where pain meds and muscle relaxers have been of little help. Imagine being able to stop pain and release muscle tightness in moments with no pills.

NMT Affective States Pathway: Bring immediate relief to emotional suffering and psychological pain. The NMT model tells us that emotions set the operating mode and tone for the mind-body. No emotion is good or bad, but when we become locked into emotions that aren’t appropriate for the present moment they misdirect the body into a disease state. Can you imagine that an allergy sufferer’s immune system might be stuck in a mode of fear misdirecting it to react against foods or airborne substances that are not really a threat? Can you imagine that a mind-body stuck in a mode of rage might have a tendency toward arthritis or other inflammation? NMT Universal Care offers tools to immediately find and fix such self-destructive nervous system patterns and restore the healthy emotional and psychological state required for healing.

You don’t need to be a health care professional to learn NMT Universal Care.
Are you interested in learning how you can heal yourself? Are you a mom or dad who wants to protect the health of their children, friends, and family? Are you a health care professional who wants to learn state of the art “informational medicine” that you can use your first day back in your office? Then NMT Universal Care Workshop is for you!

Whether you are a health care provider looking for new, simple, and easily learned ways to help your clients, or someone who would like to help yourself, your friends and family, you can finally have some real power and control of your health instead of being a passive consumer of drugs and medical care.  Whoever you are, the NMT Universal Care Workshop will transform your life and the lives of those you help with your new NMT skills. Plan now to join us for the most interesting and valuable workshop you have ever attended!

If you come to the live seminar and also purchase the DVD seminar set, the DVDs are reduced 50%.

Develop Your Full Potential at DE in Sarasota

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

A strange thing about human nature is that too often we tend to have a low opinion of ourselves. This low self esteem holds us back; keeping us from realizing our full potential. Though we may hate to admit it, in a variety of ways, we destroy or allow others to destroy our self confidence, Often when a new thought or idea pops into our minds we respond immediately telling ourselves that we can’t do or accomplish that which we desire. If we continue to follow this train of thought long enough we find ourselves in a negative state of mind; never accomplishing all that we are capable of.

We MUST believe in ourselves, have faith in our own abilities; exercise our power from within to its fullest potential to accomplish our heart’s desire. Until we accomplish this we can never be truly happy or successful in life.

Another stumbling block toward the realization of our full potential is fear. This comes most often because we have a fear of failure. As Franklin D. Roosevelt said “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.” Yet too often we allow fear to control our thoughts and the direction of actions we take.

DE Dynamic Essentials

Another very common reason for a person’s lack of success is that of not knowing HOW to develop the full potential from within. Though you may not realize it you possess within you, the power that allows you to take full possession of your mind and direct it toward the solutions of your problems and the attainment of your goals. Once you understand how to use it you immediately free yourself from negative thoughts and limitations and instead attract to yourself the abundance of everything you need to be successful and happy.

To Register for the upcoming DE in Sarasota, FL phone us at 770-438-9949. Attend the April 25-28 DE meeting in beautiful Sarasota and see how developing your full potential can pay big dividends.

At DE, you will be exposed to many DC’s who have learned how to release the power within themselves and are now highly successful in their practice and in their lives. Being associated with these DC’s and hearing them talk will give you the opportunity to tap into their success secrets projecting you toward developing your full potential.

Once you gain this self mastery and develop positive self-images; you will find only those images and your ability to SEE IT BIG defines that which you can or can’t accomplish. This is why you need DE, why it’s so important for you to get a clear vision of what you want to accomplish, and to begin moving in a direction of self mastery and greater success.

The direction in which a person moves is determined by the exercise of that person’s greatest power—the power within. Oliver Wendell Holmes once said “The greatest thing in the world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving.”

Make sure you are moving in the right direction–come to Sarasota in April for the DE meeting that can change your direction in life, awakening the innate power of self-mastery and developing the inner potential that is within you. You will discover your full potential and how to use it.

The DE specifics we advocate have been tried, tested and proven true by many who have attended DE. Greater success can be yours too! The DE presentations we speak of are for you, your spouse, assistants and family. The messages are clearly understandable and can be absorbed by all in attendance who truly desire to obtain the dynamic power and perpetual magnetism of the “Greats” in our profession.

These success principles become known only to those who are prepared to seek and accept them. Come seek and accept these great truths and receive the success they can bring you. Make your reservations for the April DE today. We look forward to seeing you there. Call 770-438-9949 or go to www.lifede.com to register online.

“Use your full potential! Take charge of your life!” – Dr. Sid E. Williams

Foot Levelers Continues Long-standing Partnership with Parker University

DALLAS — Foot Levelers, a leading provider of individually designed stabilizing orthotics and other health care products, continues its long-standing partnership with Parker University to support the education of future doctors of chiropractic.

Over the years, Foot Levelers has donated significant funds and products to Parker University, contributing to the education Parker students receive in numerous ways. Parker University classrooms were named after Foot Levelers in honor of one of their largest donations, totaling one million dollars, to increase the technology capability in classrooms, including high-definition televisions and on-screen presentations.

Foot Levelers ParkerIn addition, they have contributed funds and Foot Levelers products to the Parker University Chiropractic Wellness Clinics, which has provided additional learning opportunities to Parker students and has enhanced the care patients receive in the clinic.

“My father, Dr. Monte, always believed one of the best investments you could ever make was in the mind of students,” said Kent Greenawalt, chairman and CEO of Foot Levelers. “It is an honor for me to carry on his tradition and help support chiropractors of the future.”

Foot Levelers’ stabilizing orthotics were invented nearly 60 years ago by Dr. Monte Greenawalt to balance the body by balancing the feet. Their stabilizing orthotics are individually designed to fit each patient. Feet, gait pattern, and postural makeup in the human body are all different, which is why each pair of stabilizing orthotics is engineered specifically to each patient. The orthotics provide structural support, yet allow the foot to retain a full range of motion.

Recognized as one of the biggest philanthropic families and companies in the chiropractic profession, the Greenawalt family and Foot Levelers have had a positive influence on nearly every aspect of chiropractic.

“Foot Levelers’ generosity has been instrumental in providing exceptional education to our students,” said Dr. Kenneth Thomas, vice president of academics of Parker University. “Their outstanding service to Parker University and the chiropractic profession overall, is something to be recognized and celebrated.”
