    Hello Barb,

    This is becoming a very common problem. I recommend that this individual also see a naturopath or integrative MD for support. There are many factors, but certainly injury could be one, and thus Matrix could be helpful.

    Hello folks,

    Something to consider with many inflammatory, autoimmune conditions (eczema may be one expression), is the role of the microbiome and how it has been negatively impacted in recent years. Check the following links for some up-to-date info:

    in reply to: Synkinesis after an episode of Bell’s Palsy #2704

    Hello Christine,

    I have experienced some benefit with Bell’s Palsy. I do not have any experience with synkinesis, but I would simply treat according to our protocols, as I don’t think there would be down side. As always, proceed slowly at first.

    There are many references in the literature under “Mind-Body” interactions. The book Brainspotting, by David Grand comes to mind.

    in reply to: Detox reaction? #2394

    Hi Christine,

    Yes, this is likely a detox reaction. She should probably be seeing a naturopath as well. Has the reaction subsided at all?

    I agree that acupuncture (NOT dry needling, which can be quite traumatic) would be OK. Gentle, relaxation massage is OK too.

    in reply to: Emotional Trauma #2365

    Hi Christine,

    I view emotional trauma as a source of neurological (electrical) data that can become focused in certain parts of the body, in much the same manner as a physical injury. This can be discerned by the behavior of the patient, or due to the fact that the PR’s re-occur or do not respond to reasonable treatment. One additional way that I have differentiated these primaries is by scanning about 10-16 cm. from that part of the body. In these cases, the tension created by this data can predispose to physical injury or prevent resolution.

    Bringing the possibility of the emotional (stress) component to the awareness of the patient, using the breathing/visualization (‘vacation spot’) exercise, may be helpful in reducing this source of tension and open the person to possible constructive intervention and/or solutions.

    Hello Jessica,

    I confess that the exact nature of the difference is still a mystery. It is simply a clinical finding, which is consistent on some of the early testing of this magnet configuration, which demonstrated that the maximal biological effect seemed to occur with the “north” pole in the centre of the array.

    in reply to: Persistent Dizziness Post Treatment #2297

    Hello Elsie,

    You mentioned treating the cranium. I have found that treatment of the cranial base (OCC, TEM, SPH) can cause symptoms like this if the upper C-spine was not adequately addressed at the same time. Was this done?

    in reply to: Teeth shifting with permanent metal retainer #2296

    Hello Christine,

    I agree with Elsie that correcting the underlying cause of the dental misalignment is the goal. The mandible may only be part of this. Since the upper and lower teeth both had permanent retainers, the cranial base, cervical spine and other structural imbalances may be relevant.

    Changes to the bite in relation to the retainers is not unusual. It is important to focus the patient on the improvement in other functional changes, related to overall health (ROM, joint stability, neurological findings, etc.). This will help them put see dental changes in a larger context of their general progress. It is worth explaining that the dentist/orthodontist is solely focused on the bite, but may not be aware that the braces and/or retainers may be producing mechanical and neurological stress via the trigeminal nerve, which overflows into the nervous system and thus other parts of the body. A dialogue with the dentist may be helpful.

    in reply to: Assessment and treatment with client who has A-Fib -medicated #2239

    Hello Mike,

    It is always important to follow the hierarchy. The pericardium is dependent on many other systems and is usually the last component to be treated. As one progresses through the hierarchy, it is important to monitor the patient’s responses. Depending on their general state of health, they may react to certain treatments, as the body attempts to restore balance. If these responses are significant, such as respiratory distress or severe pain, etc., it may be necessary to slow the pace of treatment, i.e. space the treatments out. Coordination with their MD or ND may be necessary, in order to ensure that the patient is being properly monitored, with regard to laboratory and clinical evaluation, as well as medications. Recall that other influences, such as the cranial base (vagal tone) and the upper thoracic spine (sympathetic nerve supply), may also be involved. If the patient is tolerating treatment, then progressing to the pericardial fascia may proceed.

    Best Regards,
    Dr. George Roth
