What is NER, and how can it help you as a practitioner?

Have you heard about Naturopathic Emotional Release? Been wondering what it involves and whether it can help you to better serve your clients?

Let’s take a closer look at Naturopathic Emotional Release and why it is a game-changing tool for many health practitioners.

What is Naturopathic Emotional Release?

Naturopathic Emotional Release (or NER for short) is a tool practitioners can use to identify and integrate underlying emotional blocks. NER can be used in conjunction with your clinical skills and natural remedies to achieve your client’s goals.

We know that emotional health needs to be addressed to reach optimal well-being. NER is a tool that you can use to safely address any emotional drivers behind your client’s symptoms. 

The best part? It’s a tool that you can easily add to your current offers. You can use NER for as little as 10 minutes at the end of an appointment for your client to reap the benefits!

Who can benefit from Naturopathic Emotional Release?

NER can be used for clients of all ages. If there is any form of stress, symptom or sabotage, NER can be used to assess for underlying emotional drivers.

Some examples of conditions that are indicated include:

  • Anxiety
  • Bed-wetting
  • Chronic conditions
  • Digestive conditions 
  • Food aversions
  • Headaches
  • Hormonal imbalances and fertility challenges
  • Mental health issues
  • Pain 
  • PMS
  • Self-sabotaging behaviours
  • Sleep issues
  • Stress
  • Trauma and grief
  • Weight loss

As you can see, NER can potentially benefit a multitude of health concerns that health practitioners work with on a daily basis.

What does Naturopathic Emotional Release involve?

NER is based on the mind-body connection. Neuropeptides are released during times of stress, and can attach to receptors on neurons and cells throughout the body. This is how stored emotions may contribute to pain, illness and disease. It also explains why clearing the emotions could help to restore health.

NER combines touch, meridian and acupuncture points, muscle response, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and memory recall. The resulting process can help clients to tap into and release emotions.

It uses muscle testing to assess if touch, talk or imagery causes a physiological stress response in the body. If there is a change in muscle strength, this indicates that the nervous system has been triggered by that particular stressor.

How can Naturopathic Emotional Release help my clients?

As health practitioners, we have a toolbox of methods to address health issues, including herbs, flower essences and nutrients. NER can be used to enhance these therapies. But in the case of clients that don’t seem to respond to their treatment plan, it can also uncover the emotional drivers that could be holding them back from resolving their symptoms and health concerns.

Another important benefit of NER is addressing self-sabotaging behaviours. We’ve all had clients before that swear they are ready to change, but then don’t follow through. They don’t take their herbs every day, end up grabbing takeaway after a tough day, or forget to exercise even when it’s scheduled in! 

But our clients aren’t naughty children – there is often one or more emotional drivers that are blocking them from making lasting changes. By using NER to identify and clear these blocks, we set our clients up to achieve their goals faster.
