How Does CBT Work?
Health problems often persist because your brain (autonomic nervous system) is unable to accurately identify and correct the underlying causes of those problems. This can occur for many different reasons.
CBT uses gentle and effective Muscle Response Testing (MRT) to obtain feedback from your body concerning the presence of any hidden “health stressors” that may be causing your problem(s). These stressors can include: allergies, infectious organisms, toxins, and physiological dysfunctions.
Once a stressor has been revealed, Dr. Smith can then relay this information to your brain. This is accomplished by the gentle stimulation of specific neurovascular “reflex points” on your cranium and upper body. As soon as your brain accurately recognizes the stressor, it can then immediately begin to correct it.
What Diseases Can CBT Help?
Your brain is a powerful “bio-computer” that is capable of correcting a wide variety of health problems. However, CBT itself does not diagnose or treat “diseases”. Diseases are simply words that describe the symptoms of health problems. They do not establish the causes. Some examples include: acid reflux, chronic fatigue, allergies, hypothyroidism, irritable bowel, sinusitis, asthma, eczema, etc.
When you suffer with health problems, medications may help you feel better by suppressing your symptoms. However, these drugs typically do not address the health stressors that may be causing your symptoms.
If left uncorrected, these stressors can often result in medication toxicity and/or the chronic impairment of your health potential.
How is CBT Different?
The purpose of CBT is to enable your brain to recognize – and then correct – the underlying causes of your health problems. This can produce the natural resolution of your symptoms, and the restoration of your optimal health and function.
For example: A grass allergy can create the “disease” of sinusitis. These unpleasant symptoms can usually be suppressed with antihistamine drugs. However, the cause of your symptoms is your brain’s erroneous “tagging” of grass as a dangerous substance. Once this misidentification is corrected, your symptoms will resolve and your sinuses can regain their normal, healthy function.
You are tested for a wide variety of different “health stressors”. The examination is gentle, painless and non invasive.
Since many of our clients have severe allergies or environmental sensitivities, we ask you to avoid using personal care products with strong smell on the day of your appointment, including hair spray, perfume, scented lotions, or cologne. This includes naturally scented items such as essential oils. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.
We ask 24 hours notice of appointment cancellation. A charge will be made if an appointment is cancelled less than 24 hours before it is scheduled except in case of medical emergency.
CBT is currently classified as “experimental and investigational”, and is therefore not yet insurance reimbursable. Payment in full is expected at time of service. We accept cash, checks, Visa and MC. If you have any questions about our fees, please contact our office.
What do health care providers say about CBT?
I truly feel that this is not only the best workshop I’ve ever been to, but perhaps the most life-changing. The implications of this technique are staggering, not only for chiropractic but for health care in general. I would highly recommend the workshop to anyone interested in making huge impacts on peoples’ lives.”
