John Brimhall, BA, BS, DC, FIAMA, DIBAK
Dr. John Brimhall is also known as the “Father of Wellness” in chiropractic care. He has been lecturing with the world’s advocates of health and wellness since the 1970’s. He graduated a cum laude Doctorate in Chiropractic from the Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1971. Dr. Brimhall is also the best selling author of "Solving the Health Puzzle with the 6 Steps to Wellness," as well as a health and wellness lecturer, consultant, researcher, and patent holder of two chiropractic instruments, and nutritional supplement formulator of over 100 products.
Dr. Brimhall has been a pioneer in the most advanced program for improving treatment outcomes. Doctors trained in the Brimhall protocol report tremendous improvements in their practice… healthier patients, enhanced profits, and more confidence when faced with difficult cases. The Six Steps to Wellness program encompasses structural imbalance, electromagnetic radiation, nutritional deficiencies, allergies and sensitivities, emotional issues and toxicity.
Dr. Brimhall's Six Steps to Wellness Protocol™
Step 1: Re-establish Structural Integrity, The Foundation of Health
Nerve and Structural interference happen when nerves or tissue are interfered with causing the life energy, which flows through them, to be blocked. It can be produced through trauma such as an accident or fall, fractures, surgery, emotional stress, etc.
If our tissues, muscle or fascial movements are restricted it may cause interference with the electrical impulses moving through them. Pain and disease may not be the initial cause but are actually key indicators of nerve interference. Re-establishing structural integrity is the foundation of health with 80% of all conditions improving when the structure of the body is properly re-established to allow a free flow of vital energy.
Step 2: Rebalance Electromagnetics
We live in an ocean of electromagnetism with our bodies having their own electromagnetic field much like a magnet has north and south polarities. Every cell in our bodies has north and south polarity that affects all functions of that cell. Our fields should be in sync with the natural rhythms of the earth, moon, and sun.
When electromagnetic pollution from electrical sources such as power lines, appliances, computers and TVs, microwave communications devices, and even the electric clock by the bed begins to accumulate, our entire cell system becomes stressed to the point of exhaustion. Our vision declines, our cells no longer know how to build and repair the body properly, and illness can set in.
Step 3: Rebalance Nutrition
- A. Reset Adrenals & the General Adaptive Syndrome (GAS)
- B. Replenish Nutrition for Organs, Glands or Systems Weakness.
- C. Reduce Infective Organisms in the Body.
- D. Replace Enzymes and/or HCL to Aid Digestion, Assimilation, and Elimination.
- E. Restore Proper Bowl Flora to Optimize Colon Function
Surveys show that 20% of the US population never eats vegetables, 40% rarely consume fruit or fruit juices and 80% of the population never consume whole grains or high-fiber foods. Refined sugar lowers the immune system's function and interferes with white blood cells ability to destroy bacteria.
ALLERGIES AND SENSITIVITIES
Step 4: Reprogram the Body for any Allergy or Sensitivity
It is estimated that 35 million people in the US suffer from allergies. As we remove the interferences to your health, reset your adrenal gland, and correct your nutrition and digestion we must correct allergies and sensitivities or they will keep triggering your immune system back into interference - this is a very significant stage of healing and cannot be ignored.
There are basically three causes of allergies:
1. A substance in the environment such as dust, mold, pollen, etc.
2. Foods or food additives such as corn, milk, soy, etc.
3. MetabolicBiproducts (bodily fluids and tissues).
Allergic reactions can mimic a wide range of diseases and disorders leading to a confused immune system response as well as their ability to kill off good bacteria in our GI tracts. Food particles in the digestive tract are normal, but food particles in the bloodstream are reacted to as foreign invaders.
EMOTIONS AND STRESS
Step 5: Re-evaluate Emotional Patterns & Remove Limiting Belief Systems
Research has shown that emotion is a complex reaction between mind and body resulting in chemical reactions in the brain and cells, producing energy made of electrical and magnetic nerve signals. These energies or emotions literally have a frequency, which radiates outward from our body's natural energy field.
The mind is a field of energy made up of the brain and body. These chemical and energy patterns are stored in the mind-body field and are referred to as emotional memory. Perceptions and beliefs are represented by the stored configurations of memory held in our mind's electromagnetic field. Past experiences and perceptions of them control reflex emotional responses which can then be re-played and create interferences to life's normal functions limiting one's ability to perceive situations properly.
Step 6: Remove Heavy Metals and Other Toxins from the Body
Toxic metals are widely used in industry, food processing, and agriculture, and find their way into our air, food, and water. Exposures to these toxins are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness. Some toxins are naturally occurring chemicals that our body has had a hard time breaking down but when accumulated over time in our cells, these toxins can cause mutation or death. While harmless in very small quantities, they can be deadly in large amounts.
Researchers and experts in environmental medicine tell us that it is not a question of "if" our bodies are burdened with toxic overload but “how much". Common problems of toxicity include headaches, fatigue, general joint and muscle pain, skin disorders like rashes and eczema, and asthma and allergies. Many toxins are neurotoxins like monosodium glutamate and mercury and affect our brain functions such as memory, quick thinking, and moods.
