NeuroGenix Brain Integration involves a synthesis of approaches, techniques, research and clinical practice that ranges from ancient Chinese medicine to the incorporation of the latest developments in western neurological science. Recent developments in brain scanning and imaging and other exploratory techniques have added invaluable knowledge and insight into such areas as functional brain mechanisms and neurological data flow. A more accurate understanding of the physical and informational neurological landscape serves to empower a more effective approach to detection and correction of embedded misinformation and any manifest (observable) as well as hidden dysfunction.

 

Furthermore, the lifelong work of people like Richard Utt, Dr. Charles Krebs and others has demonstrated the physical and energetic relationship that exists between the now scientifically validated meridian acupressure points and neurological mechanisms, structures and pathways. This has allowed noninvasive and drug free diagnostic and neurological reprogramming methods to be developed with proven and documented results. (See SCIENCE 1, footnote #11 & RESEARCH 1, col.s 1 & 2).

 

Quantum physics. Additionally, an understanding of the implications of quantum physics, pioneered mainly in the field of alternative health by Dr. Leslie Feinberg, has furthered an understanding of the connection of all physical systems with their energetic and informational nature and their more valid context within the physical universe, as well as potentially furthering an understanding of the principles involved in remote therapeutic work. For optimum results we have found and do reiterate that the development and use of energetic methodologies has necessarily benefitted from a combination of ancient practices and the particular knowledge derived from neurological scientific exploration and studies combined with clinical field observations of ourselves and others.

 

The pathways and processing details of the various forms of input to the brain and its neurological systems can greatly refine both the objectives and the results expected through therapeutic treatment. The nature in which the total environment affects the various human systems has become more detectable by noninvasive means and is also highly relevant. The relationship between conscious and unconscious processes with respect to neural structures and pathways involved, as well as quantum effects and other wave forms, have also been found to be important. This applies to both the complex human endogenous (internal) environment as well as to the exogenous (external) environment. This latter area, besides obvious environmental factors, can include geopathic stress associated with such things as geographical residence, work location and modes, lengths and destinations of regular travel.

 

Human consciousness involves the processing and application of vast amounts of information and an integration of numerous steps and loops that include unconscious processes, intersection with numerous wave forms and interaction at some level with its spiritual body and intelligence analogs.

 

A major factor in the health equation is the integration of conscious and unconscious processes alligned with the generation and involvement of emotions. (1)  From a strictly neurological viewpoint early childhood emotional imprinting is apparently limited by the rate and degree of synaptic mylination (physical insulation of nerve coverings), however our clinical experience suggests that such imprinting can commence as early as the first trimester in the womb and that characteristics resident in or acquired by the human spirit are also necessarily factors to consider. The frequency signatures associated with powerful emotions are not limited to mylinated neurons or even to the physical body. Factors as diverse as ancestral and other morphic fields and the filtering and traffic control mechanisms of the reticular activation system (RAS) and other neural structures are all imperative to lasting health and wellness.

Integration - Science

The human neurological structure is generally the focal point where the various health factors find their confluence. The efficiency of neurological processing relates not only to cognitive issues such as comprehension, learning and performance of tasks but also to health and disease states. Alzheimer’s, MS and Parkinson’s are neurological disorders. The recent growth of such maladies as Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia might also be considered to some degree as brain diseases. Anxiety and the effects of stress including PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) are highly correlated with neurological function and it has become increasingly clear that the heart and the intestinal tract have closely linked relationships of interdependence with the central nervous system (e.g. brain). (2)

Unconscious processes actually predominate. A major point here is that cortical processing occurs in an interactive and parallel manner mostly hidden from the conscious mind. (5) Most of the brain's cortical processing steps (including forward, lateral and other dimensional) are largely subconscious in nature. Unconscious and conscious processing are not effectively combined until the fifth and sixth (Brodmann) upper cognitive cortical processing levels. (6) At these levels conscious thought may also trigger additional processing loops that again engage the subconscious in numerous integration steps before emerging again in the flow of conscious critical thinking. (7)  The thalamus plays a critical role not only as a relay but also as a control agent― and one with both activation and triggered amygdala survival programs ever at the ready. Depending upon the emphasis being logic (linear, sequential, deductive) or gestalt (intuitive, inductive) in nature, the neural flow in one of the two hemispheres may appropriately predominate (if fully accessible, there are 8 different commissures involved). (8)  Cranial blood flow also corresponds with and supports neural activity. Survival reflexes and related activity correspond with greater blood flow to the brain stem, whereas serious conscious thought processes rally blood flow to the frontal cortex.

 

We now know that the glial cells, which actually predominate within the brain structure and were once thought to play a mainly passive support role for neurons, are actually very much involved in monitoring neuronal data flow as well as repair and other critical functions. See RESEARCH 2, col. 2. Effective brain integration necessarily includes attention to the various glials involved at each stage in the data flow process.

 

Integration and balancing of these and numerous other related processes is an increasing challenge in a world that has become stimulation intense and often at odds with the forces that govern the universe. (9)  Fortunately, the efficiencies of each of these neurologic and energetic/ informational components are testable and, if not struturally damaged, usually correctable. See:

Corticocortical processing may involve these corticothalamocortical ‘re-entry’ routes to a far greater extent than previously appreciated. If so, the thalamus sits at an indispensable position for the modulation of messages involved in corticocortical processing. ...the known complexity of thalamic circuitry points strongly to a significant role for thalamic processing, and details about that role have emerged...showing that the thalamus can dynamically alter the information relayed in a manner that reflects various behavioural states." See also: Foxe, Schroeder, The case for feedforward multisensory convergence during early cortical processing, Neuroreport: Apr. 2005, V.16- I.5, pp 419-423, There is new evidence that cortical intercommunication begins at the lowest levels and includes not only cross and forward channel but also feedback from higher levels.  Recent "...findings make it clear that multisensory convergence at early stages of cortical processing results from feedforward as well as feedback and lateral connections, thus using the full range of anatomical connections available in brain circuitry."

6) We have chosen here to include Brodmann's 6 level interpretation of cortical functions. Dr. Charles Kreb's LEAP program classifies 4 cortical levels for his purposes. The number of cortical levels is actually open to interpretation depending upon the various definitions applied and the various brain functions ascribed to each. There is also an arguement for a 7th level. Brodmann area 7, is considered part of the parietal cortex in the human brain. Situated posterior to the primary somatosensory cortex (Brodmann areas 3, 1 and 2), and superior to the occipital lobe, this region is believed to play a role in visuo-motor coordination (e.g., in reaching to grasp an object). In addition, area 7 along with area 5 has been linked to a wide variety of high-level processing tasks, including activation in association with language use. This function in language has been theorized to stem from how these two regions play a vital role in generating conscious constructs of objects in the world. Marley, Somatosensory Association Cortex – Brodmann Areas 5 and 7 – A Brief Literature Overview, 2011, The Amazing World of Psyciatry, Wordpress. Regardless conscious processing generally begins with Brodmann level 5 and Krebs levels 3 and 4. Conscious and unconscious processes also operate and interact in both parallel and overlap.

7) Gilbert, Sigman, Brain States: Top-Down Influences in Sensory Processing, 2007, Neuron, V. 54, I.5, p. 677–696, 7: "The emerging evidence suggests that any cortical area is an adaptive processor. Rather than performing a fixed and stereotyped operation on input coming from the retina, it makes different calculations according to the immediate sensory and behavioral context. This moment-by-moment functional switching is likely mediated by an interaction between feedback connections from higher to lower-order cortical areas and intrinsic cortical circuits. The role of top-down influences is then to set the cortex in a specific working mode according to behavioral requirements that are updated dynamically."
