DR. BRADLEY NELSON
I want to tell you the story about how I began on my healing journey…
My name is Dr Bradley Nelson DC (ret) and I am one of those lucky people who was blessed to discover an incredible secret that I want to share with you.
It is a secret that has transformed my life and the lives of thousands of people across the world…and I know it will do the same for you.
Now, before we go on to that, I want to share with you an inspiring story, it’s the story of how I found my true calling, and why I must share this knowledge with you…
Overcoming a Debilitating Disease as a 13 Year Old Boy…
When I was 13 years old, I was diagnosed with kidney disease. At the hospital, the Doctors told us that there was no treatment for what I had. They told me to be careful not to run or play too hard, because it could be dangerous.
I remember thinking that they didn’t really need to tell me that, because just walking would sometimes create pain in my back that would make me feel like I had been stabbed with a knife. Since this disease was potentially fatal, and since there was no medical treatment for it, my parents decided to try an alternative. They took me to see a couple of Osteopathic Doctors who practiced and lived in a trailer house situated in the middle of a field on the outskirts of town.
Their names were Dr. Alan Bain and Dr. Ida Harmon. “Doc and Ida” started working on me, and within a couple of weeks, I felt much better.The pain that I had been experiencing was much less frequent, and much less severe.
After about a month, I had just about forgotten that I was ever sick. My parents took me back to the clinic, where they ran the tests on me again. The tests were all negative, and as I recall, that was the 1st time I ever heard the phrase “spontaneous remission.” “Whatever we did must’ve worked!” – But of course, they hadn’t done anything. I knew in my heart that what my “alternative Doctors” had done HAD worked.
Finding My True Calling
I decided then and there that I wanted to be a Doctor when I grew up, but not just any kind of Dr, I wanted to be THAT kind of doctor. If I had to practice in a trailer house in the middle of a muddy field, that was okay with me.
Doc and Ida treated people by the busload who’d come to them from all over, even from other states. They were miracle workers, and my life would never be the same after my experience with them.
I remember very distinctly lying on my back on their table during a treatment session and telling Dr. Harmon, “When I grow up, I want to do what you do.” She replied, “No you don’t. If you go to school you’ll never learn the right way to heal. They’ll fill your head so full of dogma and nonsense that you’ll never be able to think for yourself again.” Maybe it was my age, but for some reason this advice really stayed with me.
A Detour Into the World of Computer Programming
As the years went on my dream of being a healer started to fade a bit. I was introduced to computer programming in college and I loved it. I loved business, and decided that I wouldn’t go into the healing arts after all. Instead, I was going to become a businessman.
When I was about 6 months away from starting the MBA program at Brigham Young University, my wife Jean and I went home to Montana for Christmas. As we were sitting with my mother and father in their living room, my father suddenly asked me, “Are you sure you don’t want to go to Chiropractic school? You’ve always wanted to do that, and it seems like a really great career.” I replied that, “No, I’ve decided to get my MBA, so I’m really going in a different direction.” He said “Well, why don’t you think about it one more time?” I told him that I would.
Receiving Direction From Above
Later that evening, Jean and I drew up a pro and con list. On one side was chiropractic, and on the other side was the MBA and the business world. The list was a little longer on the chiropractic side, but I wasn’t convinced. However, I was now not so sure what I really wanted to do. I had thought that my mind was made up, but now I felt like I was being torn between two exciting futures.
When Jean and I got married, we made an agreement that we would never make any momentous or important decision without praying about it to see if it was right. This was definitely one of those momentous decisions. So, that night found me on my knees. I essentially said, “Father in heaven, if it makes any difference to you, please help me to know what direction to go. I will go either way.”
I was awakened in the middle of the night with my mind full of thoughts about healing, and how wonderful it is to be able to serve other people that way. I remember thinking, “Well yes, that’s true, but this other direction is good, too….”
I had this experience 3 times that night. I woke up 3 times, and each time my mind was full of these “warm fuzzy feelings” about going into the healing arts. Nevertheless, I wasn’t convinced. (Do I seem a bit thick headed to you?)
The Single Most Pivotal Moment in My Life…
The next night found me on my knees once again, asking God for guidance. And this was a night that I will never forget if I live to be one million years old. This night, like the night before, I was awakened 3 times. And each time I was awakened, my mind was filled with the same thoughts as the night before. But somehow these feelings became progressively stronger and more powerful each time I was awakened.
The third time that I woke up that night my mind was overflowing with thoughts of service to mankind and to humanity; it’s impossible for me to describe what this experience was like. The feelings were absolutely overwhelming, and as my head was filled with thoughts of healing and helping the world, a voice spoke to me.
That voice was crystal clear, and it was as distinct and audible as anything I’ve ever heard. It said, “This is a sacred calling.”
The Body is a Sacred Temple
I’ve reflected on this experience many times since then. And I believe, because the human body is actually a sacred “temple” for our spirit to inhabit, that any time we are working to help that body function better, we are doing a sacred thing. If we are sewing up an injury, if we are helping someone who is disabled, if we are healing someone who is in need of healing, we are doing a sacred thing.
I ended up going to chiropractic school later that year. It was one of the great experiences of my life, and thanks to my classmates, it was a truly enlightening experience. But even so I was very much on guard. I remembered Ida’s warning to me from many years before, that I would lose the ability to think for myself.
No matter what healing method was taught by my instructors as being the “best way” to fix this or that problem, my attitude was always, “Well, maybe, maybe not. Maybe there’s a better way to do this, it just hasn’t been figured out yet.”
Computer Programming and the Healing Arts?
By this time, I had become pretty good at computer programming. In fact, I was able to help put myself through chiropractic school by programming the admissions software that our college used.
I remember my instructors saying how the brain is the most sophisticated computer in the known universe. And I can remember thinking, “Wow. If the brain is really a computer, will we ever have the ability to access the data that must be stored in there, because if we could, it would be amazing.”
I figured that someday, as technology advanced, we might eventually gain this ability. Little did I know how accessing the subconscious database would affect my practice and the rest of my life!
When I went into practice for myself one of the very first patients that I treated was a man who weighed about 300 pounds. He was in tears because he was in so much pain. I remember feeling a sense of panic wondering, “How can I know what this man really needs? What if I don’t do the right thing? How can I really help this man to get well as quickly as possible?”
My First Contact With the Power of The Body Code
I said a silent prayer to God at that point. “Father in Heaven, you got me into this. You need to help me now, if you will.” And He did. Somehow I was able to help that man to get out of pain in short order.
I came to rely on prayer. I prayed all the time for help, although no one knew it. I practiced for 20 years in one form or another, and it was my habit to ask a short, silent prayer of help for each patient that I treated, each time I treated them. I prayed that God would give me the “Gift of Healing,” one of the spiritual gifts that are spoken of in the Scriptures. I think I pestered Him for that gift on a daily basis for at least 10 years.
I learned for myself that prayers are answered. My patients got well. There were times, especially during the last years that I was in practice when the patient might present a problem that I didn’t know how to deal with, something that I had never seen before, and there were times when, in answer to my silent prayer of help, the information I needed to know would instantly flood into my mind. Sometimes this information was a completely different way of looking at things than I had never even considered before.
Leaving my Practice to Spread the Power of The Body Code
I loved my patients. I considered them my good friends. Leaving my practice was one of the hardest things that I ever had to do.
I was a bit like Marcus Welby M.D. If you’re old enough to remember, Marcus Welby was a medical doctor, and probably the 1st “Dr. show” that appeared on TV. During my childhood in the 1960s, it was one of my favorite shows and for some strange reason it made a huge impact on me. Dr. Welby was general practitioner, a “family Dr.”
He took care of families, and the show was always interesting because you never knew what was going to happen from one episode to the next. Sometimes I felt like a family doctor myself. I took care of families in many cases, working with everything from childhood asthma to the problems of old age.
“If we can find those imbalances, and fix them, perhaps your symptoms will go away”
As time went on, my patient’s problems seemed to increase in complexity as my ability to help them increased. The last 10 years that I spent in practice I specialized in working with people who were suffering from conditions that were considered “incurable” by Western medicine, complex problems like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, and even cancer.
Consistently I told these patients, “I don’t treat diseases. I don’t claim to cure diseases. I simply try to find the imbalances that are going on in the body. I believe that the symptoms that you are having are because of imbalances that are going on in your body. If we can find those imbalances, and fix them, perhaps your symptoms will go away.” And go away they did.
During those years, I saw patients with these difficult problems from all over the US and Canada. The vast majority of them got well, and quite rapidly. I didn’t end up helping everyone, and my success rate was not 100%, but it was very close to 100%.
Teaching Others to Help Themselves…
Somewhere along the line I developed this very powerful feeling that people could do a lot to help themselves. I had this deep, driving urge to empower people. I begin teaching seminars to do just that in 1998, and taught as many seminars to as many people as I could around the US and Canada for many years. But I was wearing myself out. I was working in my practice 60 hours a week and then flying off on weekends teaching seminars, and my family was suffering for it.
In 2002 I got a message from “upstairs” that I needed to turn my practice over to someone else, and sell everything I owned. It had become clear to me that these healing methods that I developed were not just for me or my patients.
These healing methods that I had developed were for the whole world…including you.
Letting Go of Emotional Baggage with The Emotion Code
I had to get out of practice so that I would have time to write “The Emotion Code.” I left practice in 2004, and in June of 2007 I published “The Emotion Code.” The success of that book has been astonishing to me, it taught me how powerful the written word is. There are people now on every continent and in nearly every country who are using The Emotion Code to get rid of their own emotional baggage and the best part is that they are helping their loved ones to do the same.
I get e-mails every day from people whose lives are changing; who are falling in love for the first time because they got rid of their Heart-Wall; people who are getting rid of their anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, depression, as well as their pain and discomfort.
I’ve been all over the world teaching The Emotion Code Seminar, from Australia to Germany, from Toronto to Auckland, from Seattle to New York City, from Dublin to Amsterdam.
The Emotion Code is Only One Small Piece of a Larger Picture…
But The Emotion Code was only one piece of the puzzle. Since our “trapped emotions” are the single most common kind of imbalance that we suffer from, it was the first piece of healing information that I needed to get out to the world.
The truth was that even with its worldwide popularity,The Emotion Code was just the tip of the iceberg.
The entire system that I had put together during those years that I was in practice, a system that I called “The Body Code”, was the essential, groundbreaking “missing piece” that I now needed to share with the world.
My Secret Weapon: Computer Programming and The Subconscious Mind?
Because of my years as a computer programmer I was always trying to combine the use of a computer with the healing work that I was doing. The Body Code was developed in response to my need to figure out what was really wrong with people in the absolute shortest timeframe possible.
I ran my practice in such a way that I had about 10 minutes per patient visit. That might not seem like a whole lot of time, and it’s not. I knew other holistic practitioners who would easily spend an hour with a patient. But I had a secret weapon, and that was the ability to access their Subconscious Mind through muscle testing. As time went on, I developed a “mind mapping” system that was perfect for my needs.
After The Emotion Code was published, I had a vague idea in the back of my mind that eventually I would teach The Body Code System to doctors. Although I had taught it in seminars before, I had no plans to teach it again, as I was putting all of my effort into getting The Emotion Code out to the world.
However, that was about to change.
“Share This Knowledge With Everyone…”
One early morning in August of 2008, I woke up to find my mind full of a very specific instruction to “Take all the information that you have gained, take everything that you have learned about healing, and put it into a self-study course that anyone can use and learn, and make it available to everyone, everywhere.”
It’s hard to describe how crystal-clear this instruction was. There was no question that this is what I was supposed to do. Yet for just a moment the thought of how much work this was going to be made me look upward and ask, “Are you sure about this?” (There was no response to this question, but I wasn’t expecting one, really)
I spent the next year working non-stop on The Body Code System. I would start working on it before the sun was up and often still be working on it after midnight.
It’s Really More a Matter of “Remembering” Than Learning
I believe that The Body Code System is the most advanced method of energetic healing and of natural healing that exists on the planet today.
It’s really amazing. And while I would love to take credit for it, I will never do that because I believe that I’m just the messenger. I believe that everything that has happened to me in my life has prepared me to be this messenger, to bring The Body Code System to the world, to bring The Emotion Code to the world, to give back the healing birthright that belongs to every single one of us, to turn us back into the healers that we are capable of being.
If this story resonates with your heart, if you can feel the truth of it, then I hope you will join me. There is so much you can do to help yourself to get well and stay well.
There are people all around you who need your help. You can help them. You can heal their lives. It’s really more a matter of “remembering” than learning. Somewhere, deep inside of you, there is a mighty healer that is about to awaken. I am honored to be in your presence, and to share this sacred knowledge with you.
