DBLC- I think NB is going to really change in the next few years. I think as more and more information and experiences are shed on open forums everyone is going to have to change.
I started working directly with ARL and was simply given a computer generated program from my results. Nothing was ever added or subtracted. I stayed with this for the first 11 months. After my intensive treatments in Mexico for chronic infections I was finally making good progress. When I came back I searched for a practitioner who had some working knowledge of dealing with infections but could find none. Most were saying that NB by itself would be enough to correct infections. I disagree completely and who has 2 or 3 years to wait around to find out.
So I decided to become a practitioner(for myself, family and friends) with TEI. I figure I know more about infections than most doctors so I was in good hands. TEI will allow healthcare professionals to set up an account. I am an addictions counselor and they agreed. The tests come complete with supplement and diet suggestions if the right test is ordered.
NB really isn't that complicated and I am tired of all the fear mongering that has been going on the last few months on some forums. I switched to TEI as I really disagree with ARL's 4 lows protocol. TEI's approach makes more sense to me.
I feel diet is the most important aspect of NB. The next step is to eliminate all of the stressors that have contributed to the AF. Lifestyle and sleep are also extremely important. I think lastly are the supps which give everything a boost and help to correct deficiencies or toxicities. This is all only just my opinion and experience as it took me 5 years to heal myself. I made many mistakes along the way.
I continue to heal and am currently experiencing the best sustained energy I have had in probably 30 years.
