The thing that makes everything else work better...

I’m always trying to think of better ways to explain to people what is so different about NIS (Neurological Integration System) as opposed to various other methods of chiropractic, bodywork, etc. Well, as it happens, my little computer setup here handed me a good analogy. I’m typing this onto a tablet computer using a wireless keyboard. Once in a while. I guess the keyboard gets lazy or glitchy or something and will insert a character (usually a 6 or a j) at the beginning of every sentence. I try to go back and delete the unwanted character, but I can’t! It’s like the computer doesn’t recognize it since I didn’t type it, and yet there it is, and if I send the e-mail or print the document, yes, there they are, the very real and unwanted characters at the beginning of the sentence! What is needed here is a reset of the temperamental keyboard, and then all is well with the world. But without this keyboard reset, everything else is negatively affected. It seems like a small problem, but hardly anything works like it should while this problem is going on! NIS, for the human nervous system, is like restarting the glitchy keyboard. It helps to balance the core operating system of they body - the central nervous system, through the brain - and thus allows everything else to work better. It’s not the be-all end-all of everything, just the most important foundational thing! I don’t have any problem with the hundreds of other structural/functional approaches out there. In fact, many of my clients even see other chiropractors for specific things. (Heck, I myself see different types of chiropractors for different things!) But I can say this with absolute 100% certainty: anything you do for your health - whether it’s chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, meditation, sports, diet modifications - literally anything healthy - will work better if you’ve had NIS. Sometimes, people are overwhelmed with the choices and various therapies that they are using to tackle a health problem, and they hesitate to add yet another one to the list! I would not really think of NIS as a competing modality to anything, but as a basic all-systems-go check-up. A starting point. And that is all I have to say about that. :-) -DK
