I. The Philosophy Of NeuroCranial Restructuring
What is NCR?
NeuroCranial Restructuring is
a manipulation process used to unwind the body into its
original and optimal design. It utilizes careful analysis of
the body's proprioception (patterns of balance) to determine
the precise areas of the skull needing to be unlocked. This
unlocking allows the connective tissues (including the
meningeal system) to release their residual tensions and
move the bony structures incrementally back towards the
body's original design.
How does NCR represent a new
paradigm shift in healing?
In traditional natural
medicine, the emphases in healing are placed on
detoxification of metals, chemicals and toxins, hygienic
living and removal of infective organisms. Except for
recovery from accidents and injuries, the physical medicine
techniques like massage, physiotherapy and manipulation are
used for pain relief. To accomplish this, a patient comes in
on a regular schedule. There can be some long-term
improvements, but they are generally local changes like a
lessening of the intensity of headaches or neck pain.
With NCR, long-term changes
are the normal response, and the eventual result is an
optimization of nervous system functions. What I have found
is that many conditions thought to be biochemical,
developmental or infective in nature have a previously
unknown, correctable structural component. This means that
conditions like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression,
migraines and scoliosis have a new approach in treatment.
To me, natural healing
involves hygienic living (pure food, water, air, exercise,
etc.), detoxification of metals, chemicals and toxins,
treatment of infective organisms and optimization of
structure. This is a paradigm shift in medicine.
Why aren't good diet,
exercise and rest enough to correct all my health problems
and to optimize my structure?
The body has emotional,
mechanical and biochemical functions. The nature of your
biochemical lifestyle does not make much difference to your
mechanical operation. It is similar to a car. If you have an
accident with your car, it can't function normally until you
fix the body and chassis. Just replacing fuel filters and
oil or adding gasoline will not repair the car after an
accident. Thinking positive thoughts will not take the dents
out of our cars or our bodies. We have had many accidents
during our lifetimes. We also need the structural repairs.
This is what NCR does.
What happens if I keep
getting treatments after my symptoms disappear? What does
NCR do besides relieving conditions and their symptoms? Can
I grow as a person from NCR? How?
As NCR treatments continue,
the benefits accumulate. The body continues to move closer
and closer to its original blueprint. This means that the
benefits become more profound as treatment continues. At
first, symptoms of pain and obvious dysfunction leave. Later
other beneficial changes are experienced as the nervous
system and musculoskeletal systems optimize. This is the
time when people note profound transformations in their
personalities and in the way they think, feel and move.
The brain develops the
feelings a person has. The concept of separation of the mind
and body, developed by Descartes in the seventeenth century,
is not real. If this were so, ingesting drugs could not
alter mental state. This is why counseling is used only for
minor psychiatric maladies, and the severe psychiatric
states are treated with drugs. With a severe psychiatric
state, the brain does not work right! This is not a
situation a person can be talked out of. This is also why
tense, anxious people look forward to a cup of tea or a
glass of wine or beer after a hard day. Do you know anyone
who needs coffee in the morning to lift his or her morning
depression? All of these examples are indications that the
mind is a part of the brain/body. Although it sounds more
spiritual to keep it separate, in reality the spirit is
housed in the body/mind. So changing mental function makes a
person different in ways a person cannot comprehend without
experiencing it him or herself. This can be accomplished
through life experiences, both good and bad, both traumatic
and euphoric, and created dependably through changing the
shape of the head with NCR.
There is a growing cadre of
people who continue receiving NCR treatments because of the
personal growth they are achieving. Only a body that is
operating nearly perfectly can achieve true spiritual
growth, the sort that people dream about. How, for instance,
can a person expect an imperfectly operating brain to
develop psychic skills or achieve a state of peace and
bliss? A necessary prerequisite is to optimize brain
function. When there is idealized flow of blood and
cerebrospinal fluid, brain functioning can be optimal, if
the other criteria are met. But a person seeking to become
more perfect (by perfecting diet, physical, mental and
emotional activities) who does not optimize the mechanical
function of the skull can never achieve optimal function of
the brain and body.
Why does NCR help so many
NCR is a technique that
optimizes the function of the brain and body. It treats the
cause of many conditions. If you have chronic pain in the
musculoskeletal system, the pain can go away by optimizing
the musculoskeletal system. If you have a problem with brain
function, NCR can help by optimizing the mechanical function
of the brain.
How do you know NCR works?
I have been a naturopathic
physician since November of 1982. I performed thousands of
treatments on thousands of patients. Throughout those years,
I never saw the results nor got the positive patient
feedback that I get from NCR. I am certain that NCR works
because I can see the results every day.
