Neurological Integration System (NIS)

What is NIS?


Muscles in the body should at all times be able to resist a given force. This is normal when integrity of the sensory-motor loop exists. NIS employs a series of sequential and prioritised steps to determine congruence between the brain and certain neurological centres. These centres may be derived from cortical, spinal, visceral and glandular circuits. Some centres are activated with patient participation. If neurological confusion dominates, the information referred via the sensory-motor loop will produce gross muscle weakness of any muscle elected for testing. The post central gyrus is linked to restore appropriate control of the sensory-motor loop, giving back control to the testing muscle. In doing so normal neurological activity and homeostatic mechanisms are restored to the centres being assessed.
What complaints may NIS help?

The spectrum of complaints that may be treated with NIS is very vast.  
Using NIS your practitioner is looking to identify the ‘underlying reason’ behind your symptom.  
The underlying reason could be physiological, pathological, chemical or emotional.
Remember...because NIS is assessing and addressing the optimum function of all body systems, there are few things that will be excluded.
The following is a broad guideline only of the types of complaints that may be treated using NIS:

  • Structural (joint, tendon, ligament, muscle & spinal pain/restriction. Nerve entrapment) 

  • Trauma/accident associated (closed head injury, paralysis) 

  • Learning & behavioural difficulties in adults & children (ADD/ADHD/Dyslexia, memory recall, concentration, co-ordination, reading, speech, frustration/self-esteem) 

  • Pathological & all issues relating to the immune system. (Viral, bacterial, fungal, protozoa) 

  • Fertility & miscarriage (both male and female) 

  • Hormonal (both male and female) 

  • Mental & emotional disorders (depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic attacks, bi-polar disorder) 

  • Skin disorders (eczema, psoriasis, acne) 

  • Digestive System resulting in sinus & mucous issues 

  • Migraine 

  • Eyes 

  • Allergies (both food and chemical toxicity, hayfever) 

  • Auto-immune 

  • Insomnia & poor sleeping patterns 

  • Heart and Cholesterol (blood pressure, venous & arterial supply) 

  • Chronic Fatigue/ Fybromyalgia 

  • Poor organ function (bowel, liver, bladder, etc.) 

  • Stress-related illnesses 

  • Respiratory (asthma) 

  • Emotional impact on any aspect of physiology
