Building on my last post, NMT is based on a patient’s perception of errors in mind body function as indicated by a muscle response test (MRT).

Working with patients in this model creates a different perspective on the causes of illness and how we get better. Often the underlying causes of health problems have a very surprising source as determined in NMT. But I have seen some interesting patterns.

Asthma is a good example of a consistent pattern.

Often, patients I have seen with asthma indicate via MRT the presence of infectious agents or pathogens typically in the lung tissues. As I will discuss in a future post, I believe these infections are often an unusual form that don’t make the screens in western medicine and are difficult for the immune system to eliminate from the body.

The second issue indicated by MRT is autoimmune inflammation.

Think of the situation in which a pathogen is hiding effectively from the immune system for a very long time. As the immune system is actively trying to chase an elusive target, it accidentally starts to target self tissues. This is the worst of all possible worlds in which the pathogen remains in a person creating damage and even worse, the immune system begins to target lung tissues in which the pathogen hides. Pathogen movement or activity sensitizes the immune system that unsuccessfully tries to kill the pathogen and in the process creates lung tissue inflammation creating an asthma attack.

From an NMT perspective, the immune system works every second of every day to kill anything that is not you. Pathogens and infectious agents survive by fooling and hiding from the immune system informationally. An NMT “dialogue” with the mind body using MRT is designed to strip away all the strategies the pathogen uses to hide. Armed with clear information, the immune system does what it does best—kills the now visible infectious agents.

A second MRT “dialogue” asks the immune system to consider how it is targeting self tissues to end unintended attacks on lung tissue. Changes appear in asthma symptoms for patients that respond to NMT. Below are comments from a patient I treated in Northern California remotely (the subject of a future post) from Florida:

As a newborn I arrived into this world with extremely weak lungs – so weak that I was injected with a steroid to help me breathe. Although I always had problems breathing, it wasn’t until I was 14 years old that I was officially diagnosed an asthmatic. Things like exercise or playing sports were very difficult. As the years progressed so did the intensity of my asthma. After almost nine years of battling this condition, I was referred to Sal by a friend of mine. I was experiencing a fire season in California that ultimately led to a trigging of my asthma. My chest was so tight my breathes were short and I felt like every time I would inhale; my chest would get tighter and tighter. When Sal and I crossed paths (remotely), he was so warm-hearted, a great listener, and an authentic individual. Sal genuinely cared for me and I felt how genuine he was about helping me. He built excellent rapport before explaining his process and diving into our first session. I must admit that I was skeptical at first; however, I quickly began to believe – I opened myself to him and almost instantaneously felt a change. In the middle of our first session, I felt the tightness in my chest loosen up a bit. After the third session, I felt like I could breathe deeper and the tightness in my chest is completely gone. Even weeks later as I write this testimonial, I feel amazing and can breathe with ease. Thanks to Sal I feel so liberated. - Richard Solano 9/12/20
