Question 1:

"I always have tight or restricted shoulders. I have tried different modalities but they only help temporarily. What could you do for me that may be more permanent?"

Answer 1:

There could be several reasons for your shoulder restriction. Physically, you most likely have an old cranial injury complex which changes the bio-mechanics of how your shoulders move in relation to your head. This can lead to micro tearing in the muscles and tendons over time, which is where one eventually is diagnosed with bursitis, arthritis, or a myriad of other conditions with fancy names. Correct the cranial circuitry first using the N.O.T. protocols, as the neurology should be reset before the muscles, bones, joints, and organs are worked on. Lesser known in most disciplines, the circuitry of the endocrine or hormonal system is connected to the left Pectoralis Major muscle, which is a major shoulder stabilizer. If the endocrine circuitry is organized and functioning properly, the left Pectoralis Major will receive energy and test strong. When the body is stuck in fight/flight or defense, it draws energy away from the endocrine/hormonal system. Since most people have had at least one cranial injury that the body could not reset on its own, most people are stuck in the fight/flight mode. Therefore, most people’s endocrine neurology is in jeopardy, hence producing a weak left Pectoralis Major and subsequently a weak left shoulder. Toxicity of the body from years of ingesting sugar, coffee, bad fats, bread, dairy products, alcohol, tainted meat products etc, can significantly stress the organs. They constantly have to overwork to process, filter, and eliminate the above-mentioned non-foods. If the liver and/or gall bladder are over stressed, it can refer pain and restriction to the right shoulder. Stress to the stomach, spleen, or pancreas can refer to the left shoulder. My approach would be to do the N.O.T. protocols and the patient’s responsibility would be to do a series of detox cleanses under the guidance of a Doctor of Naturopathy or trained professional. Then it would be wise to modify one’s daily eating routine and minimize the ingestion of the above-mentioned stressors. Finally, emotions of anger, resentment, frustration, and stubbornness can weaken the liver and gall bladder circuitry, resulting in referred pain or weakness in the right shoulder. Low self esteem, worry, distrust, and hopelessness are just some of the emotions that cause stress and weakness of the stomach, spleen and pancreas which refer to the left shoulder. All or any of the above may be the cause or the compensation, but to thoroughly fix the problem, all must be investigated together.

Question 2:

"I always seem to have tightness and pain between my shoulder blades. Massage and chiropractic only temporarily help. How can N.O.T. help me?"

Answer 2:

Usually the body will have sustained an injury to the head, which we label a “cranial injury” (refer to my book “Let It Flow”). If the program responsible for holding the head is functioning, the brain will command the nerves to stimulate both the front and back muscles of the head, neck and chest equally. With a cranial trauma, the program can become disorganized or “off”. The result is that the head now feels heavy, and the survival response by your innate intelligence is to turn down the nerve energy to your front musculature and put as much energy to your posterior or rear head, neck, and upper back muscles. Your innate survival mechanisms do this to create a back up system for the purpose of holding your head up. Without this you would not be able to see in front of you, and from a primitive survival standpoint, would not be able to see oncoming attackers! Some other signs and symptoms of a cranial injury are pain and tension at the base of the skull and upper neck, headaches, restricted range of motion of the neck, vertigo or difficult balance, difficulty concentrating or remembering, a feeling the head being very heavy to hold up, slouched posture, one leg shorter than the other when lying on the stomach, an appearance of the head always tilting to one side, jaw tension, and the list goes on. The solution is not to soften the muscles of the back or free up the joints first, but to let them do their job of staying tight to keep the backup system functioning. The solution is to fix the circuitry in the cranium (a protocol found in the N.O.T. treatment). The body will then immediately discontinue hyper-stimulating the back muscles of the body and restore power to the front muscles, so that both front and back can share the load of holding the head up. The tension between the shoulders will then diminish as the cause has been corrected. After the cranial circuitry or neurology is corrected, one may find benefit from a few chiropractic adjustments combined with massage to restore joint mobility and loosen the fibrotic soft tissue.

Question 3:

"When I stand in front of a mirror, I can see that my head, shoulders and pelvis look uneven or tilted. Can this be corrected? "

Answer 3:

Yes it can. If you look at the human body, particularly the cranium/head, the shoulders, and the hip area, you will see that there are actually three pelvises, not one. The jaw bones that come together would be similar to your two collar bones coming together, and your pubic bones coming together. There are two round flat bones in the side of your head beneath the skin of your ears that move opposite to each other when you breathe. They are called the temporal bones. They would be analogous to your flat round shoulder blades or scapulae which move in a counter rotating manner, and your two flat round ileum bones which move counter to each other. You have a triangular bone at the back of your head called the occiput bone. It moves back and forth when you breathe, as does your triangular sternum in the front of your chest, and the triangular sacrum at the base of your spine. There are 4 circuits or sensors (2 on the front and 2 on the back) found in each of the three “pelvises”. If they are all calibrated to each other, they send information to the brain as to their location in space. The brain then calculates and decides which nerves it is going to send energy through, to stimulate the muscles of the head, neck, shoulders, and pelvis. This is done for one purpose only, which is to keep the animal as centered (plumb line) and upright against gravity as possible. If the person has ever struck their head or shoulders, fallen on their head or pelvis, or been struck/checked really hard from the side as in sports/car accidents, the calibration of any or all of the 12 points can become disorganized. The body will do its best to maintain plumb line/center of gravity between the jaw (the cranial pelvis) and the pubic bone (the body pelvis). It will intelligently do this by stimulating one side of the musculature more than the other side, causing the spine to pull or curve out of true center. Remember, it is doing this to maintain the head centered over the pelvis, at all expense. Without this compensatory mechanism you would be in severe pain, immobile, or even dead within a short time. This is why the muscles of one side of the neck, shoulder, or pelvis will pull more than the other, giving the appearance of one side tilting or being higher. This will change the length of one’s stride or “gait” when walking, and can be a main reason for why people wear out their shoes or heels more on one side than the other. It can be the reason why a person can be very strong with one arm or leg, but not with the other. A “gait fault” as we call it, is extremely common in most people, and fairly easy to correct in one treatment. It is as if the body program or motion picture in the brain is frozen in one frame where one arm and the opposite leg are extended forward (as in walking or your gait). Even though you may look like your standing straight with your legs together in centre, your neurology is really firing only one arm muscle group and the opposite leg group. If you watch people when they stand, many will have to lean over onto one hp when they stand or sit. They cannot stand on both feet very long without shifting their weight. This is a sign of a gait fault. It is largely responsible for why people can have a good back swing/kick in baseball, golf or other sports, but a poor fore swing. Of course if the gait fault is the reverse, they will have a good fore swing but a less than excellent back swing. It can be the cause of repetitive sprains, strains, muscle tightness, and spinal curvatures. Many people who present with a minor curvature in their spine are being misdiagnosed with having a “scoliosis”. In medical literature, about 85% of these are labeled as “idiopathic scoliosis”. Idiopathic literally translates into “origin unknown”! I find it very disturbing that information founded by chiropractors and chiropractic kinesiologists regarding the treatment of the body is being purposely ignored by the mainstream health “authorities”. Yet this same mainstream group can justify breaking segments of the spine, inserting rods into children to straighten the “appearance” of the spine (but really not addressing the “cause”, (as I have just explained) for a condition which is 85% idiopathic. They shouldn’t tamper with it if they don’t know or are refusing to listen to other approaches outside of their box of thinking. Please understand that there are cases of severe spinal malformations from genetic defects, etc, but more needs to be learned by parents and doctors alike before going to the most extreme treatment first.
