Mind Body Medicine Q & A

What is mind-body medicine?

Mind-body medicine connects emotional well-being to physical wellness. In many cases, physical problems are actually rooted in unaddressed emotional problems. Through a variety of mind-body medicine approaches, Dr. Nelson helps you discover and implement effective ways to resolve problems for true whole-body wellness.

If you’re struggling to heal and can’t understand why you’re not getting better even after maintaining a healthy diet, exercising, and following medical advice, the mind-body medicine approach can give you an alternative path to recovery. 

What is the best mind-body medicine approach?

At Explore Health, Dr. Nelson offers naturopathic counseling, which focuses on your body’s immense ability for self-healing. He also incorporates beneficial strategies and techniques using mind-body medicine approaches including Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), Body Code™, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). 

This multifaceted approach allows you to release or reframe negative emotions that are currently hindering your ability to heal and enjoy peak wellness. 

What is NET?

NET helps with stress-related conditions. It seeks to find underlying emotional stressors that could be manifesting as physical problems. This multidisciplinary approach includes body physiology, chiropractic, acupuncture, and other techniques to correct musculoskeletal imbalances, remove toxins, and address nutritional deficiencies.

What is Body Code?

The Body Code is an energy-balancing program. It finds damaging energies, circuitry imbalances, toxins, pathogens, structural imbalances, and nutritional deficiencies that are holding you back from healing. Through this program, you can find the underlying causes of physical and emotional pain, sickness, and suffering, and then release those burdens effectively in only minutes. 

What is EMDR?

EMDR is a therapy approach that can help with traumatic memories. In this treatment, Dr. Nelson uses bilateral stimulation that includes eye motion, tones, and/or taps to help you categorize a memory into another part of your brain to essentially reframe it. 

EMDR can be extremely helpful if you sometimes feel like past trauma is affecting your current reactions or behaviors. For example, if you have panic attacks when faced with certain triggers, EMDR can help you mentally place the trauma firmly in the past. This allows you to react to formerly stressful things without panic and intense anxiety.
