NEURAL ORGANIZATION THERAPY
It has drawn on knowledge acquired from research in:
Philosophy of N.O.T.
The underlying philosophy of N.O.T., on the scientific level, is that in order to understand how our basic physiological functions work today, we must look to our primitive origins. We were after all, created to exist and survive in a hostile environment. Therefore, essentially everything we need for survival, with the exception of food, air and water, must be found within the body itself. It is a self-healing, self-regulating, self-perpetuating (replacing its own tissues) mechanism. These mechanisms, by their very nature, must be inborn or innate, integrated and fully automatic from the very beginning of life. Physical or emotional trauma and poor diet can disturb these automatic functions. N.O.T. has been found to be a key to understanding many of these relationships.
In 1979, Dr Ferreri recognized the importance of the survival systems of feeding; fight/flight/fright; reproduction; and the limbic/immune systems of the human body. He recognized that there was neurological priority in the way the body worked. He began to explore this concept very deeply and developed the programs that are the blueprint of the body’s neurology.
The current model of reality for most, so called, health care today actually focuses on sickness and pain, not wellness. It is as if health was just the absence of disease. The usual treatment is by drugs (chemical), surgery (structural), and radiation (kill the bad cells). This does not focus on the cause of the problem, only the symptoms.
N.O.T. attempts to treat the cause, the whole person, and work with what the body tells us is out of balance. If you have pain, the reason why you have pain is far more important than the fact that you do have pain. Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong! N.O.T. recognizes that wellness can only occur when we have a harmoniously functioning nervous system, and prevention rather than cure is the approach a person chooses. N.O.T. focuses on correcting problems before they manifest as a health problem.
KINESIOLOGY AS A TOOL
N.O.T. is based in the art and science of Applied Kinesiology and using an intact Indicator Muscle we can use it as a very accurate diagnostic tool for neurological biofeedback. This is both informational and educational. This allows us to have a continual monitor of our progress in the treatment procedure. We can say that N.O.T. is organized Applied Kinesiology.
An intact indicator muscle is of paramount importance in N.O.T. If we did not have the muscle response testing tool we would not have discovered much more about the body than everyone already knew about 40 years ago.
