One problem in medicine (including alternative medicine), that I’ve observed through the years concerns doctors not looking in all the right places when trying to diagnose disease. This is, I believe, the main reason why there are so many people misdiagnosed and struggle year after year with sometimes disabling conditions. It also has to do with how medical doctors are trained. If you can’t medicate it, cut it out, or burn it out, then you send the patient to a psychiatrist.

Most medical doctors don’t believe in natural supplementation much less the different techniques in energy medicine like Reiki. Too many times doctors in alternative and conventional medicine just look in one area to find the answers and totally overlook other areas of life where disease and problems can manifest – energy medicine is one of those areas among others.

In this series of articles I want to discuss the 6 areas where all disease starts. If you have a medical problem and just can’t seem to get better then you should pay special attention to these articles.

These series of articles are based on Dr. Bradley Nelson’s ebook called “The Six Underlying Causes of All Disease: The Reasons We Lose Our Health and What We Can Do About It”.

Dr. Nelson’s ebook seems especially relevant in this day and time with the problems of the Obamacare rollout. The more we know and can do to help our own health to be good then the less we will be dependent on the health care system.

In this article I want to discuss the first two areas that Dr. Nelson talks about in his book. The first one area or imbalance is infections/infestations. These infections include viral, bacterial, mold, and fungal. He says on page 27 of his book that, “Infections are the number 1 killer worldwide.”

The other area is infestations which he says are parasitic. He also states on page 27 that “85% of the U.S. population infested…” He is a chiropractor and very involved with natural medicine and recommends natural supplementation to help rid our bodies of these unwelcomed guests. He also suggests a technique that he developed that he says will also help rid our bodies of these infections/infestations and possibly speed up recovery. This technique is called the emotion code. I will discuss this technique in a later article.

The second imbalance is Structural Misalignment (Subluxation). This is a problem that chiropractors work with. The idea is that if our spine is misaligned it starts to press on one or more of the nerves that comes out of our vertebrae. This interferes with the communication signals that our brain is sending to the different parts of our body and vice versa. When this dialogue is interrupted then sooner or later problems start arising in the affected areas. Keeping our spines aligned is critical to good health.

So if you are having issues with your health, and you just can’t seem to get better, maybe you should mention the above to your doctor and depending on your symptoms he may want to order more tests or refer you to another doctor that can better access your health. Even though there are some medical doctors that are beginning to use natural medicine in their practice, it’s still not widespread-yet. So, if it were me I would find and go to a good natural doctor that has a really good track record of helping people get well.

My next article will discuss two more areas of imbalance in our bodies and what you can do about it if you think it may be a problem you have.

I also talk about these six areas in my new book “The Misdiagnosed Child,” and I talk about some areas of health that is not discussed much if at all in mainstream medicine. To learn more go to
