Often, new innovations meet with skepticism because they violate commonly held beliefs. Nerve Depressurization Therapy™ flies in the face of conventional beliefs about pain.
However, before discussing the difficulty in believing that this new therapy has great validity, let us look at some of the beliefs that are generally accepted.
The currently accepted definition of science is:
“Science: the field of study which tries to describe and understand the nature of the universe in whole or part. The field of study or discipline that we call Science is spelled with a capital “S” as it is a proper noun in this use while science with a small “s” is the application of this discipline” (http://www.journaloftheoretics.com/Editorials/Vol-1/el-3.htm). JOURNAL OF THEORETICS
Medical science is defined as:
“Medical science: the science of dealing with the maintenance of health and the prevention and treatment of disease.” www.consci.princeton.edu/cgi-bin/webwn.
Science’s basic premise is that and experiment must be repeatable and have consistent results. With Nerve Depressurization Therapy™, when a condition or disease is successfully treated, it is totally eliminated, gone for life, unless new injury occurs. The only variable is the amount of time needed to eliminate the condition. That leads us to ask why other treatments that are less than 100% successful are still classified as scientifically proven.
Beliefs are very powerful. Medicine, psychology and political systems are built on them. Sometimes they are not true. We just think they are. Some skepticism is healthy and new ideas need to be subject to rigorous scrutiny. The problem comes when they are ignored from the onset because they are so dramatically different from conventionally accepted knowledge. Nerve Depressurization Therapy™ is not alone in this. Other innovations have met with similar attitudes. We need only to take a look at this example from history.

GALILEO'S HERESY by Paula Haigh
The Copernican Theory
“Due to the spread of the Copernican theory and complaints of theologians, the Catholic Church in 1616 condemned the following propositions.
I. The sun is the center of the universe and completely immovable by local motion.
II. The earth is not the center of the universe, not immovable, but moves according to the whole of itself, and also with a diurnal motion.
The first proposition was unanimously declared to be foolish and absurd in philosophy and formally heretical in as much as it expressly contradicted Holy Scriptures in many passages, both in literal meaning and according to the accepted interpretation of the theologians of the day.
With regard to the second proposition theologians agreed that it merited the same censure in philosophy, and that it was at least erroneous in the faith.
In 1632 Galileo published the Dialogue on the Great World System in which he openly advocated the Copernican theory. Because his view was believed to be contrary to the Catholic Church, he was put on trail in 1633 for heresy.”
As we all know today, the sun is the center of our solar system and the earth revolves around the sun. Because the Church believed this scientific theory went against Biblical teachings, it took over 100 years more for this truth to be accepted.
Now, in the 21st century, and we have submitted our revolutionary findings about how the nervous systems actually operates to the Federal and Alberta governments.
§ The nervous system works under electrical pressure.
§ This electrical pressure is what causes pain
§ Once the pressure is reduced, pain is eliminated.
§ Blood pressure is always lower than electrical pressure in the body.
§ Reduction in electrical pressure then allows
· the blood to regenerate damaged tissue and
· The lymphatic system to remove waste particles.
We feel that our research and our success rate warrants further investigation and study. The Federal and Alberta governments do not want to even discuss the findings, let along acknowledge them. They assume that because their experts have not heard about these findings from other sources, they cannot be true. Is there not a strong parallel between our current government’s attitude and that of the Catholic Church in the 1600’s?
Are you willing to wait 100 years before accepting that pain can actually be eliminated? Many people will continue to suffer needlessly from pain, because of a refusal to accept science over popular belief.
