What is Neuro-Emotional Technique

The Emotional Factor

Purple CrocusEmotions are healthy human functions and normally pose no long-lasting physiological or psychological problems. In the past, people related to emotions as being primarily psychological and thought they were located only in the brain. Researchers have now proven that emotions are physiological and actually travel in many areas of the body in the form of biochemicals called neuropeptides.

It is human nature to have emotional responses to significant events in our lives. It’s also human nature for our bodies to return to a “normal” state at some point after a significant event. Sometimes, however, we can have a neuro-physiological deficit at the time of a significant event and an emotional response can become “locked” in our bodies.

We call these “locked” emotional responses Neuro-Emotional Complexes (NECs). NECs have reflex patterns very much like the conditioned response that Ivan Pavlov documented so well in his experiments with dogs and ringing bells. Eventually, our “locked” negative emotional responses (conscious or unconscious) can manifest as symptoms. The result is ill health or an imbalance in one or more areas of our lives.

Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) is a methodology used to normalize unresolved physical and/or behavioural patterns that have become “locked” in your body. As a NET practitioner, Dr. Linda Brown, ND is trained to assist the body’s own healing process by identifying and eliminating unresolved NECs.

Could someone have an NEC and not know it? Yes, it is possible. For example, say a young boy was forced against his will to get an injection in a doctor’s office. This adult may now feel tense in any doctor’s office, and may not have the slightest idea why. Physical and/or emotional symptoms associated with this NEC may result in increased pain and dysfunction.

With your help, Dr. Linda Brown, ND can quickly find the origin of your NEC and, using a gentle correction, “unlock” the NEC. When this happens, your nervous system works better, allowing your body to naturally return to a more balanced state.

How Does NET Work?

stock-photo-21443225-spa-conceptWe feel certain emotions in different parts of our bodies in various ways. The ancient acupuncturists correlated specific emotions with the various organ meridians in our bodies. For example, fear is associated with the kidney, anger is associated with the liver, etc.

Building on this principle, Dr. Brown, ND uses muscle testing, body reflex points and semantic reactions to assist and guide you to recall the specific emotion associated with your NEC and also to identify when it first occurred. Using this deductive process, she engages a specific neuro-emotional pattern, much as a computer operator engages a specific program on a computer screen.

While you mentally hold the emotional memory of when the NEC first took place, your body’s physiology temporarily returns to a pattern similar to the original event. At this point, Dr. Brown, ND can assist you in eliminating the NEC through a safe and quick physical correction. This simple intervention allows your body to extinguish the original emotionally-laden conditioned response. It is now possible for your body to respond in a healthier way.

What NET Is and What It’s Not!

Before the discovery of neuropeptides (now known to carry emotions throughout the body), emotions were considered to be largely in the domain of psychology. Now emotions are also considered within the domain of naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, medical doctors and other complementary health care practitioners.

NET is not a “talk-it-out” therapy, nor is it a substitute for psychological or psychiatric therapy. NET is used by psychotherapists and health care practitioners of all disciplines in tandem with their other techniques to quickly enhance their patients’ results. Dr. Brown, like all NET practitioners, is trained to refer to the appropriate specialist, when indicated.

Net Practitioners refer to all memory events in an NEC as “Emotional Reality”

In Net, all memory events in an NEC are considered “Emotional Reality”, because these events may or may not correspond with actual or historic reality. For example, some NECs may be associated with imagined emotional events such as nightmares or misconceptions.

NET does not deal with the spiritual realm, nor does it exorcise demons or entities! NET does not predict the future or deal in any way with parapsychology. NET does not make claims as to what may have happened in the past, and it does not tell people what their plan of action may, must or should be in the future.

NET seeks to normalize neurological imbalances using a physical correction. NET removes the blocks to the body’s natural healing process, allowing it to repair itself. It is important to realize that these corrections don’t make life’s problems go away. However, a person with a balanced nervous system can usually deal with life’s problems more effectively.

Although we find emotions are a component of health care, it is also very important to understand that any problem can include many factors. Complete healing begins when all of the factors are addressed. Thus, your return to health is actually a “peeling” process, in harmony with the natural timing of the body’s own healing wisdom.

Is NET Treatment Safe?

Yes. Dr. Brown, ND corrects an NEC with safe and gentle techniques that synchronize the body and mind so that optimal function is attained. The entire procedure is painless, and often patients express immediate relief following treatment.
