In my clinical practice my experience and belief is that every child has a path to wellness that is unique.  In my heart I believe that every child and adult must be loved just as they are now, without expectation of change.  I don’t always know how to balance the two.

I know that when I do Neurological Reorganization I usually see other factors that need to be addressed that may be diet, allergies, neurotransmitter balances, chiropractic issues, heavy metal toxicity, retroviruses.  For each child the pathway through all of this is unique (even if they all had the same diagnosis — it would be UNIQUE) And when I refer people on we continue the N.R. as a foundational, ongoing integration tool while dealing with these other issues.

I know that when I see families there are many whose response to taking on N.R. sounds like “Wow, this is going to be like climbing Mt. Everest, but we know our child can get there and we are willing to do it.”  I have other families whose response might sound like “Wow, this is going to be like climbing Mt. Everest and we are so happy with our child who is wonderful just as s/he is and our family is so happy and functional that this might just be too much.”

Of course people who are drawn to Neurological Reorganization (N.R.) are in usually in the first group. 

But I think it is necessary to always be able to find that balance between total acceptance of a child and finding their unique pathway to wellness. 

What I do NOT accept is the diagnosis followed by the cruel assumption that this is permanent.  I know that some physicians will warn against ‘false hope’.  What I find much more dangerous is false despair.  Hope engages a pathway in the brain that leads to the generation of new neurons.   Despair leads to a suppression of brain activity.
