Acupuncture, Neuro-Reset Brain Integration, and Nutrition
for Treating the Neurological Roots of Chronic Pain, Illness & Anxiety
If the root cause of your condition is ignored the condition is not likely to be resolved satisfactorily.
Studies have shown that the cause of most chronic pain and illness is altered brain function in response to the stress of life. The NIH states that 85% of illness results from chronic stress.
Still, most treatment is focused on symptoms rather than focusing on the inside job of healing the stress-induced brain changes that are ultimately responsible for sustaining most chronic pain and illness.
The Surprising Research on Chronic Pain
Pain is maintained by stress-induced changes in brain function.
The brain creates excess muscle tension and lowered oxygen levels that result in pain.
Chronic pain is rarely the result of structural (discs, joints) changes.
Pain is mistakenly blamed on structual changes that are normal (and harmless) signs of aging.
Stress-induced changes in brain function disturb the functioning of the autonomic nervous system.
The true cause of chronic pain often goes untreated in favor of ineffective and costly treatments.
Brain Changes and the Nature of the Stress Response
The nature of the stress can range from ongoing everyday stress related to work and family to emotional shock and trauma from any time in our lives. Early family life, along with physical accidents and injury, are also relevant sources of brain altering stress.
In my thirty years of clinical practice, I've found that buried, unresolved stress is the most overlooked and ignored cause of pain and illness and interrupted healing processes.
Stress-induced brain changes upset the immune system, disrupt normal digestive function, create ongoing muscle tension and tissue oxygen deficits that contribute to most pain and headaches, create hormone imbalances, anxiety, depression, and so much more.
I offer the neurological understanding and most importantly the clinical support and personal instruction that's needed for resolving health concerns at their roots with my Neuro-Reset Brain Integration process.
In addition to the Neuro-Reset process patients are supported with Acupuncture, Nutrition, and Vibrational Medicine (color therapy, sound therapy, Flower Essences, etc.).
My goal is to help patiets transform suffering into thriving.
Here is a 4-minute audio recording providing an overview of the Neuro-Reset process.

Brain Disorganization - A Surprising (and treatable) Cause of Pain, Anxiety & Illness
This overwhelming experience, or shock, undermines neurological balance and throws the system into a disorganized and reactive state that can trigger an exhaustive list of symptoms including chronic back pain, anxiety, hormone imbalances, headaches, fibromyalgia, chemical sensitivity, and allergies.
These neurologically driven symptoms respond unsatisfactorily when treated solely with dietary, nutritional, or physical interventions because the primary trigger (neurological disorganization) for the symptoms isn't being addressed.
These very common, but frustrating conditions, are often called Limbic Impairments, Tension Myo-Neural Syndromes, or MindBody Syndromes. Regardless of what they're called they make up the majority of chronic pain, and chronic physical and emotional health complaints and are being treated inadequately.
Based on this new understanding of the brain's role in the cause of illness, balancing and healing the brain becomes the number one priority for healing a multitude of chronic, distressing and often baffling symptoms.
Neuro-Reset Brain Integration - The Missing Link in Natural Treatment
What is Neuro-Reset Brain Integration?
Neuro-Reset is a brain integrating therapy and training based on thirty years of Dr. Templin's clinical experience. It's also validated by the emerging brain science of Interpersonal Neurobiology, Neuro-cardiology, and epigenetics.
Neuro-Reset involves learning a set of inner attention skills to practice daily that integrate and repair disorganized brain function.
The most obvious benefits of resolving shock and stress induced neurological disorganization are:
Autonomic Nervous System Integration leading to pain reduction and symptom resolution
Enhanced Creative Expression
Improved Athletic & Artistic Performance
Improved Interpersonal Communication & Relationships
A more thorough discussion concerning the background and origins of Neuro-Reset Brain Integration can be found here.
In Office & Online Video Conferencing Options for Treatment
Local patients also receive Acupuncture and Acupressure treatments which are external interventions aimed at restoring brain balance that complement the inner practice of the Neuro-Reset skills.
Patients who live at a distance receive their Neuro-Reset training with Dr. Templin via live video conferencing.
In lieu of the hands-on acupuncture and acupressure, these patients receive instruction in self-directed Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology techniques that often involve gentle point touching or tapping.
The daily home practice of the inner Neuro-Reset skills allows patients to respond more rapidly and take more self-responsibility for their healing.
What's of primary importance is that the ill effects of physical, emotional and chemical shock - chronic pain, tension, anxiety, depression, and illness - can be reversed by learning how to balance your own brain and autonomic nervous system to trigger self-healing.
In addition to the Neuro-Reset process, Acupuncture & Nutrition, Dr. Templin uses a computerized technology call the EmWave that allows the influence of the stress response on the nervous system to be assessed in real time.
We all have an inner capacity for healing and self-repair that's being validated by clinical experience and emerging science. Dr. Templin's goal is to provide the necessary information and tools to make self-healing a reality for you.

More Supportive Information ... for the Curious Reader
Acupuncture helps us to interrupt the stress cycle that so injurious to our health and well being. It supports brain integration and repair and supports the balancing of biochemistry and nervous system function to restore health and wellbeing. Specifically, acupuncture balances the autonomic nervous system and improves limbic brain function.
Most patients will begin with one acupuncture session weekly that serves as a jump start for their system-wide balancing and recovery. Then their self-regulation practices discussed below provide ongoing daily support.
Epigenetics or How You Control Your Genes
The newest biological science (epigenetics) shows that our genes respond to our inner environment. Essentially this means that our beliefs, emotions, and the food we eat influence the genes that control our health.
So, to a large degree we control the expression of our genes ... and our health. We're learning that our genes don't determine our destiny ... we do.
This cutting edge science changes our understanding of illness and just as importantly ... how to treat illness.
No surgery, drug, supplement, or dietary approach alone will resolve a complex, stress-related, mindbody syndrome.
A 2004 National Institutes of Health (NIH) meta-study involving 300 papers over a 30 year period concluded that 85% of all illness results from the disruptive influence of chronic stress.
Dr. Templin's unique combination of Acupuncture and Limbic Brain Reprogramming is a tested solution to this modern dilemma. His approach addresses the complex nature of MindBody Syndromes.
Did you know that 95% of chronic pain has no physical root cause?
Surprising, but true. Most often the source of chronic pain is the limbic brain and nervous system rather than structural injury, even when structural abnormalities are present on x-ray or MRI. The tension and low oxygen levels often associated with pain are directed by the limbic brain.
These conditions often respond favorably when the patient understands the stress-related and mindbody connection to illness and is presented with new tools (The Neuro Reset self-regulation training) for balancing their limbic brain, nervous and hormonal systems, and their emotional energy.
Stress induced disturbances of the Limbic system and Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) can produce pain, inflammation, gland, and organ dysfunction that will only respond favorably by repatterning limbic brain function. Dr. Templin's comprehensive self-regulation program addresses that end.
HeartMath research shows the impact of chronic stress on health and wellbeing
Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measurements like those here show patients in real time the impact of stress on their mindbody connection, autonomic nervous system balance, and limbic system function.
Dr. Templin's Neuro Reset Self-Regulation Training teaches patients how to turn off the stress response and at the same time balance limbic function and autonomic nervous system balance. The ANS is responsible for creating the balance in biochemistry and neurology that supports healing and wellbeing.
This Self-Regulation Training is complemented with acupuncture, acupressure, nutrition and the other natural healing modalities that you'll see below.
NIH Study Confirms the MindBody Connection - Chronic stress is the primary cause of illness
A 2004 National Institutes of Health meta-study involving 300 papers over a 30 year period concluded that 85% of all illness results from the disruptive influence of chronic stress.
Our bodies are a tangible and visible reflection of invisible emotional programming. All of the unfinished emotional experience that we've ignored or 'swept under the rug' triggers an ongoing unconscious stress response that drives the gene expression (epigenetics), limbic brain disruption, and glandular imbalances that undermine our health and well-being.
Emotions are biological signals. Positive emotions like love, care, and gratitude generate life enhancing biology. Ignored, unprocessed, or burried negative emotions like fear, guilt, or rage, fuel the symptoms of much illness.
The emotions generated in response to being ill, as well as the emotions triggered by upsetting medical diagnoses, can exacerbate current conditions and need to be addressed and resolved with appropriate self-regulation skills.
We can only treat pain and illness more effectively when we understand and treat its root cause with self-regulation skills.
The stress response causes a breakdown of limbic function and of the ANS, the organizer of the body's natural repair, immune, and maintenance functions, while at the same time fanning inflammatory fires across the body and brain. This process explains the genesis of most illness and pain.
More on Assessments
One tool used in Dr. Templin's office for objectively measuring the impact of the stress response on limbic functuion is the Heart Rate Variability assessment that can be seen below. The images below show positive changes in Heart Rate Variability that can be accomplished through coaching and practice.
Learning to improve heart rate variability is the key to reducing the stress response, fostering inner peace as well as improved physical health, emotional balance, and enhanced cognitive performance.
Learning to improve heart rate variability is also the key to healing the Gut-Brain-Immune Axis. Then dietary, nutritional, and detoxification measures prove to be much more effective
The top image reflects a stressed state that is the norm for most individuals that over time contributes to the generation of illness and a loss of well-being. The image below reflects a more peaceful subjective state, the inhibition of the stress chemistry that's so injurious to health and well-being, and a balanced autonomic nervous system that's supportive of healing and wholeness on all levels.
The graph below shows the results of measuring the body's acupuncture meridian system. The acupuncture points respond to life's stressors much like circuit breakers respond to 'stress' or surges in your home's electrical system. This assessment helps to understand the degree to which the body is stressed and how to best restore balanced function.
