Modern science increasingly verifies a truth that runs through ancient healing systems: The mind and body are inextricably connected, with our thoughts and emotions exerting a powerful influence on our health. Probing the frontiers of our ability to resolve emotional wounds from the past, Dr. Bradley Nelson is one of the world's foremost experts on natural methods of achieving wellness.
Over decades of work as a holistic chiropractic physician, Dr. Brad discerned that most of his patients' physical discomfort and emotional distress was rooted in trapped emotions—the unseen emotional baggage we carry from hurtful life experiences.
“Each time you trap an emotion, you get stuck in the middle of whatever traumatic event you were experiencing,” he says. “So instead of moving beyond your angry moment, or a temporary bout with grief or depression, you retain this negative emotional energy within your body, potentially causing significant physical and emotional stress. Most people are amazed to find that their emotional baggage is more literal than they had imagined.”
Through his studies of ancient medical practices and modern quantum physics, Dr. Brad developed The Emotion Code®, a simple yet powerfully effective method anyone can learn to release the trapped emotions that block us from wellness. Using his expertise as a computer programmer, Dr. Brad codified his techniques and created a "mind mapping" system that made his work highly reliable and repeatable. He explains these techniques along with step-by-step instructions for working with the body's energy healing power in his bestselling book "The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness." A newly revised and expanded edition of "The Emotion Code" is now available (May 2019, St. Martin's Press). For more information and a free Emotion Code Starter Kit, visit EmotionCodeGift.com.
Dr. Brad is among the global luminaries featured in E-Motion, a documentary on how emotions affect the physiology of the human body and how replacing negative emotions can impact physical improvement.
“I have always been driven to empower people to help themselves, and I began teaching seminars to do just that in 1998,” he says. “I have been all over the world teaching The Emotion Code, and it is spreading like wildfire now, all over the globe.”
The Emotion Code uses Dr. Brad’s mind mapping system in conjunction with muscle testing to help people quickly and easily identify and release trapped emotions. His follow-up expansion to the program, The Body Code, is a comprehensive system that allows people to unravel six underlying causes of illness: trapped emotions, toxicity, circuitry, pathogens, and structural or nutritional imbalances. There are over 1,000 certified Body Code practitioners in 38 countries today.
"We've taken energy healing and made it so powerful and so simple and easy that even a child can do it,” he says.
