Home Run

Find out how we can help you significantly improve your physical and mental health …


… with the Home Run Formula, which could make a significant difference in your life, both for pain problems and for many non-pain issues.

The Home Run Formula is part of the Neuro Emotional Technique (NET), which was developed by Scott Walker, DC. With NET, we often compare the human body to a baseball diamond, with each base directly influencing the other bases.  First base represents emotional factors, second base addresses the effects of toxins in the body, third base represents nutritional needs and home plate addresses structural or physical needs. 

Complete healing begins when all of the four bases are addressed and harmoniously balanced.  The NET practitioner observes and corrects each “base” of the baseball diamond as it surfaces.  Thus, your return to health is actually a “peeling” process, in harmony with the natural timing of your body’s own healing wisdom. No two visits with Dr. John are the same as he is continually peeling off different layers that are interfering with your perfect health. 

With the Home Run Formula, practitioners use a time-proven method to confidently and effectively treat the cause(s) of your discomfort. This is why the Home Run Formula may be exactly the answer to your physical or mental health challenges.  And Dr. John is the only Certified NET practitioner in North Dakota who can offer you these techniques.

Below is a description of each “base” in the Home Run Formula and how it can help you achieve optimal health:

First Base

Rebalancing Your Emotional Patterns and Removing Anti-Sabotage Patterns.

Although we find emotions are a component of health care, it is also very important to understand that any problem can include many factors.  Stored emotions or the stressors of everyday life can interfere with our physical and mental health. The word “stress” can mean many different things to many people. With the first base of the Home Run Formula, we are referring predominantly to “Emotional Stress.” 

We all have emotions and while emotions are perfectly normal, they need to go through what is known as “extinction” following a stressful experience.  If they fail to extinct, they become stuck or stored within the body, they can produce physical problems and even behaviors years later that can be counterproductive to your health. And sometimes there are factors that prevent the body from recovering from what was originally a healthy emotional response. The result is a short–circuit or “glitch” in the nervous system, which can affect physical and mental well-being.

Scientists now recognize the connection between the nervous system, emotions, and health. Historically, emotions were thought to reside entirely in the brain. Now we know that emotions chemically affect the body on almost every level. If you’ve ever felt butterflies in your stomach when you’ve been anxious or a heaviness in your chest when you were sad, then you know first-hand how emotions can affect your body. And studies have shown that stress and emotional distress can make you vulnerable to illness.

Emotions such as fear, anger and grief (just to name a few) can negatively affect us long after the original event that caused them. When our body fails to “let go” of these emotions we can find ourselves with self-sabotaging behaviors, destructive beliefs, phobias, unexplained aversions and many chronic physical problems.  NET can help us find and balance these “stuck” emotions that may be causing physical or mental health challenges.

NET is performed with the help of simple muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) which assists in guiding you to a mental picture or “snapshot” of the original triggering event of the emotion in question.  Your body will assume an emotional state similar to the way it originally reacted.  To correct this “emotional complex” you will take contacts on your emotional access points and the meridian access point(s) that are storing that emotion while we gently pulse specific areas of your spine with our adjusting instrument.

Even when working with painful, heavy emotions, we typically can keep the sessions fairly light in comparison to the event. If, however, things become too uncomfortable for you we can safely end the session whenever you would like. You will always be in control of the work we do.

After a NET correction, most patients report feeling that a heavy weight has been lifted from their shoulders and that they can see their particular emotional stressor or life situation in a new light.

Second Base

Removing Toxins from Your Body

Toxic chemicals are widely used in industry, food processing, and agriculture. These toxins find their way into our air, water and food supply. Exposures to these toxic substances are not blatantly obvious to us and are hard to pinpoint as a cause for illness.

However, our bodies have a hard time breaking down some of these toxins. When these substances accumulate in our tissue cells they can cause cell mutation or cell death. These toxins can be harmless in very small quantities, but deadly in larger 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 rather “how much of a toxic load we have.” Common manifestations of cellular toxicity include: Headaches; fatigue; general joint and muscle pain; skin disorders like rashes and eczema; asthma; allergies, brain “fog” and many other health conditions.

Many toxins are neuro (brain) toxins like monosodium glutamate (MSG), Aspartame (brand names NutraSweet® and Equal®), fluoride and mercury. These toxic substances affect many brain functions such as memory, quick thinking and emotional state.

Our homeopathic Remedies, developed by Drs. Scott and Deb Walker at NET Remedies Inc., help balance body chemistry by detoxifying your body and activating your body’s natural healing abilities. We can use simple muscle testing (Applied Kinesiology) to determine if your body could benefit from these homeopathic remedies. We will only recommend the most essential remedies that have consistently proven to be helpful in restoring emotional and physical health.  The cost of a bottle of these liquid remedies is reasonable at $23 per bottle. Once completed, Dr. John will re-test to see if one bottle is sufficient to clear the toxicity in question, or if more is required.

These remedies are non-habit forming and are free of sugar, yeast, sodium and alcohol.  Plus, they are compatible with vitamins, supplements, herbs and even prescription medicines. This makes them safe for just about everyone. All components of the formulas are prepared in strict accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP) standards of excellence.

Third Base

Strengthening Your Biochemical Composition

We also carry high quality nutritional supplements available for purchase by our patients.  Our bodies are designed to receive most of our nutrients from our food, but occasionally there is a poor diet situation, or more importantly, a mal-absorption issue within the patient’s body.  Using the Home Run Formula we can find targeted nutritional supplements to help you heal faster. 

When third base nutrition issues are present, the patient can be assured of getting exactly what their body needs and nothing more.  In fact, when we work at the underlying emotional issues with NET (second base), we often find that that the need for additional supplementation is eliminated.

If you do need nutritional supplements, we will use muscle testing to determine which supplements are best for you. This will help eliminate the confusion and questioning in the supplement aisle at the local vitamin store.  Also, keep in mind that just because your body might call for support, it doesn’t mean it will always need that same vitamin.  We will re-test you to see if your body is finished with that product, or if it needs more.  You can be certain that you are only buying and consuming what your body truly needs.

Addressing Your Structural Alignment Needs

Your spine is like the electrical box on your house – it houses all the circuits that supply electricity to every part of your body.  Your vertebrae are like the individual circuit breakers in the electrical panel.  When too many electrical devices are plugged into one circuit, the circuit breaker “trips” or “blows a fuse.” 

Similar to this circuit breaker analogy, when there is too much physical, emotional or biochemical stress on the body, a vertebra “trips” or in chiropractic terms, “subluxates.”  There are many types of subluxations that can occur.  Simple subluxations only require manual re-setting of the bone and we employ many gentle or low-force (?) chiropractic techniques (which are listed below) to accomplish this task.

However, simple subluxations are the rarest types of subluxations, given all of our present-day stressors, air and water pollution, and nutritionally deficient foods that can play a role in subluxations.  That is why we need to explore every base on the Home Run Formula in order to hit a home run for your health.

Dr. John uses many chiropractic techniques including diversified, activator, Arthrostim, Koren Specific Technique and others.  Whether you prefer traditional manual adjusting techniques or low force instrument methods, Dr. John can accommodate your needs and effectively address any structural alignment concerns.

Why the Home Run Formula could be just what your body needs …

By looking at issues on all four bases of the Home Run formula, you are in an excellent position to address your physical and mental well-being concerns.
