As we have been reporting over the past few weeks, holistic approaches have been successful in the management of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and fibromyalgia (FM) by teaching CFS and FM patients how to better manage their disease – both physically and mentally.
A recent article in The Orange County Register discusses such approaches with Dr. Bradley B. Nelson, D.C., of the Nelson Health & Longevity Center in Laguna Niguel (www.nelsonhealth.com).
“Through rebuilding a person’s mind-body foundation, and by applying non-invasive technology to improve immune system strength, many patients discover significant reduction in symptoms, experience pain relief, and enjoy a better quality of life,” said Dr. Nelson.
“While symptoms may vary from person to person, many chronic conditions have similar causes. We frequently find connections between symptoms and various body organs or parts, including the brain and nervous system.”
These new directions address the variety of symptoms and causes common to the illnesses. They include the use of holistic and alternative health care principles.
Nelson believes that we lose our health when we become imbalanced in any of three critical areas; structural, biochemical and bioenergetic. His corrective care program is designed to restore health by restoring balance in these three areas.
Says Dr. Nelson, “We believe that through a comprehensive method of body balancing known as TNT, or ‘the Nelson Technique’, health can be restored. We don’t “treat disease” at our clinics. Instead, we cleanse, nourish and balance the body, and the power that created the body can then heal the body.”
Dr. Nelson has also been successful in finding new ways of identifying original sources or events that cause chronic problems, as well as new methods of treatment. His techniques have proven beneficial not only in treating FM and CFS but other chronic problems such as allergies, asthma, migraines, and digestive tract disorders.
Dr. Nelson offers free informational seminars at his center. A two-day workshop is also being offered in June.
