While working in his chiropractic clinic, Dr. Nelson noticed that his patients’ problems seemed to increase in complexity as his ability to help them increased. During his last 10 years in his practice, Dr. Nelson specialized in working with people suffering from conditions that were considered mysterious by western medicine. Dr. Nelson consistently told these patiences that he doesn’t treat diseases, and he doesn’t claim to cure them. He believed, and still believes, that the patient’s symptoms were due to imbalances in their body. If he could find those imbalances and release them, maybe the patient’s symptoms would go away – and go away they did!
During those years, Dr. Nelson saw patients from the US, Canada, and elsewhere with difficult problems. He was able to help the vast majority of them feel better – and often quite rapidly. Somewhere along the line, Dr. Nelson developed this very powerful feeling that people could do a lot to help themselves, and it gave him the urge to empower people.
Dr. Nelson began teaching seminars in 1998. He taught as many people as he could around the US and Canada for many years. Dr. Nelson would spend 60 hours a week at his practice, and then fly off on weekends to teach seminars. Both he and his family were getting tired of such a full schedule.
Dr. Nelson turned his clinic over to someone else in 2002, so he could focus on writing The Emotion Code book. It had become clear to him that the energy healing methods he had developed were not just for his patients and himself, but for everyone. After The Emotion Code was published, Dr. Nelson put all of his efforts into sharing it with the world.
At that point, Dr. Nelson still had a lot more information to share about how the body can become imbalanced and how to resolve it. Eventually, Dr. Nelson planned to teach this massive amount of material to others, first focusing on teaching other doctors, and later realizing that he would be able to teach this material to everyone willing to learn.
One early morning in August of 2008, Dr. Nelson woke up feeling divinely inspired to take all the information he had learned about energy healing and put it into a self-study course that anyone could learn, and make it available to everyone, everywhere. He had no question about what he needed to do. So he spent the next year putting everything he knew into a simplified program which we now know as The Body Code – a mind mapping system. It helps you find out what could be going on in your body through a simple point-and-click process of elimination.
