Pioneers in Helping People with Chronic Pain
Hi there, we are Dr. Bruce and Lana Nelson. We have been helping people with Fibromyalgia Pain and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome since before these names became ‘cool.’ This reminds us of Reba McEntire’s hit song; “I was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool.” What we mean by ‘cool’ is this, the words Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue are now recognized household names by a lot of people, but in the late 1980s when Dr. Nelson began specializing and helping people with these conditions, the names for the syndromes of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue were not widely known, even by many doctors.
The truth is that Dr. Nelson has been helping people with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the “invisible illnesses,” before many doctors began believing their patients that these conditions existed. Still, today these conditions can be hidden below the clinical surface and are not easily detected.
We have helped wagon loads of people with Chronic Pain such as Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, including many other debilitating conditions like Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Barrett’s Esophageal Syndrome and a wide variety of health problems for many years in our Montana clinic.
We now work exclusively via Distance Energy Balancing so we can help anyone anywhere in the world. You don’t have to travel way out west to find help any more. Dr. Nelson’s unique method TNT-The Nelson Technique can be performed at a distance over the telephone by finding the cause of the problems and using TNT to balance one’s energy. This allows us to reach people anywhere in the world to easily and quickly give them the help they need without the time and inconvenience of having to travel.
Lana has a miraculous story of being completely healed from Fibromyalgia by Dr. Nelson’s methods after suffering with 10 long years of constant headaches and severe Fibromyalgia pain. What a blessing to be pain free in two weeks.
Before telling you more about what we do you might be interested in who we are…
Pioneers from the East to the Wild West
We both came from adventurous western pioneer family stock. Our ancestors braved the rugged trek across the dusty prairies and treacherous mountain passes traveling on foot and in wagons pulled by lumbering oxen. They came from a settlement in the eastern United States and settled far away in the west in the 1800s. The interesting thing is that our ancestors lived in the same area before they migrated west. Imagine our surprise when reading our family history documents, we found out that our families knew each other over 130 years before we met!
Our ancestors went in different directions when they arrived in the west. Lana’s relatives put down roots in Utah and Idaho. Dr. Bruce’s ancestors moved to Canada. But in the early 1900s his grandfather moved the Nelson family back to the United States to the state of Montana.
Lana’s family moved from Idaho to Montana in the early 1960s. Dr. Bruce and Lana grew up living only 170 miles from each other. During the next 30 years we lived our separate lives. Lana lived on the east coast and Dr. Bruce lived in Alaska and on the west coast for a few of those years, a whole continent apart.
We both eventually migrated back to Montana, but unlike our ancestors, we traveled in comfort by jet and by car and our belongings were transported by moving companies in huge moving vans instead of by covered wagons! Dr. Bruce settled in Bigfork and Lana made her home in Billings.
From the discovery of our ancestors knowing each other while they had lived in the east during the 1800s, we will fast forward our story to 1993 when we finally met.
The Blind Date
In January of 1993 Dr. Bruce attended a weekend educational seminar in Billings Montana. He stayed with his cousins Rick and Doreen, who lived there and who just happened to also know Lana. Leave it to the relatives to match make! We were introduced on a blind date that weekend and it was one of those strange and unusual meetings like déjà vu because we felt like we already knew each other. We were hitched as they say here in the west, later that year. You will want to read more below about our 12 children!
Now for what we do and how we got started…
Our Mothers started it All
One of the many gifts both our mothers gave us is being raised with open minds for possibilities. They both used and valued natural healing methods.
Ruthie, Dr. Bruce’s mother was somewhat of an oracle in her day. She had a photographic memory and read everything she could get her hands on about health and nutrition. People would call her up and during the conversation bring up something that was ailing them. Ruthie would tell them to go to the health food store and buy this herb or that supplement which she had learned about.
In the Nelson family, Bruce and his two brothers Greg and Bradley became chiropractic physicians. Their two brothers-in-law became chiropractic physicians as well. You can imagine that the family get-togethers are more like health seminars.
Dr. Bruce and Dr. Bradley Nelson have taught natural healing methods together. Dr. Bradley Nelson has written a bestselling book, “The Emotion Code” and teaches The Emotion Code and Body Code training seminars.
Pioneers in Natural Energy Healing Techniques
And a Montana Cowboy at heart!
From the standpoint of our relatives being pioneers, we have also been called pioneers in the field of alternative methods of healing. Dr. Nelson has been practicing Energy Medicine since 1987.
Dr. Bruce Nelson is a Holistic Chiropractic Physician. He is a graduate of Life Chiropractic College West in San Lorenzo California.
He has appeared on international television and radio talk shows and has been a featured speaker at National Fibromyalgia and National Health Federation Conventions. He has treated professional athletes and movie stars and authored articles on Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in National Magazines.
Dr. Nelson has lectured and taught his own healing techniques internationally for over two decades to laypeople as well as doctors who use his system TNT-The Nelson Technique in their own practices.
Hanging at the end of a Rope
As we mentioned earlier, Dr. Nelson has helped people with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndromes since before those names were ‘cool.’ Well, Dr. Nelson has been practicing natural medicine and the art of holistic healing since before that was considered ‘cool.’
Many people who find us have been searching everywhere for help. They have been through the gamut of the traditional approach and feel like they are hanging at the end of their rope. They have been told, “You look good, and it’s all in your head.”
One of the most rewarding things people say to us is “Thank you for giving me my life back!”
Dr. Nelson has experienced what many of his patients have gone through with pain and fatigue. He had Epstein – Barr virus, this used to be called the Kissing Disease, at 13 years old and MS at the age of 27. He knows what it is to be sick, tired and not be able to get out of bed. He was healed completely from those ailments by his family’s Osteopathic doctors who they fondly called “Doc and Ida.”
TNT-The Nelson Technique is Changing People’s Lives
Dr. Nelson is the founder of TNT-The Nelson Technique which is a unique system of Energy Balancing which finds the root causes of imbalances. He believes that regardless of what name that is attached to anyone’s health problem, the cause or causes of the breakdown of each person’s body are the same and the causes are profoundly simple. He says that to regain optimum health one must find the causes of the problem and bring the body back into balance and harmony.
Being very open minded we have researched an arm’s length of therapies and techniques over the years. What we have found is that Dr. Nelson’s own TNT-The Nelson Technique is by far one of the most simple and fast yet profound body balancing and healing systems in the field of Natural Energy Medicine.
Dr. Nelson says, “I am a Montana Cowboy at heart and I like to keep things simple and easy.”
Coming into the Jet Age and Beyond
In years past alternative therapies have been the last resort for some people suffering with pain and illness, but change has also been taking place.
A very ‘cool’ trend has been picking up pace from the old wagon train of traditional beliefs in the past and heading forward toward natural and alternative healing methods. Some hospitals and medical doctors are embracing alternative natural methods like, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage and physical therapy, biofeedback and various other energy healing methods together with traditional medicine. More and more people these days are welcoming new healing ideas.
10 Years of Fibromyalgia Pain Gone in Two Weeks!
Lana is one of the people like we referred to earlier who was at the end of her rope with pain before she met Dr. Bruce.
Lana was in a car accident while driving a small car and was rear-ended by a semi truck. She has a miraculous story of being completely healed after struggling for almost 10 years with Fibromyalgia pain and finally being relieved from the debilitating headaches that plagued her. All this happened within two weeks of being treated by Dr Nelson and his amazing gifts.
(See our testimony page.)
From Dental Laboratory to Teaching Energy
Lana’s professional career before she met Dr. Bruce was in the dental field which she loved. She owned a dental laboratory and was in on the cutting edge of the field of implant dentistry working with top doctors and specialists. She also specialized in making custom dentures and appliances for cancer victims who had lost part of a jaw or palate, and created special devices to help head trauma victims with speaking impairments and babies born with a cleft palate who were unable to nurse.
Lana kept working in the dental field after marrying Dr. Bruce but her heart turned to the work he was doing in the natural healing field especially when she discovered her gift as an intuitive.
One-of-a-kind Energy Balancing Food and Diet Program
Lana has been instrumental in developing an Energy Balancing Food and Diet Program which finds the top healing foods that each individual specifically needs to regain nutritional health.
Look for our book in the spring of 2014, The Nelson Technique 14 Days to a Pain Free Life, Energy Balancing Food and Diet Program, which is a completely unique one-of-a-kind self-help system that we have had huge success with.
Lana is certified in Quantum Biofeedback Technology, a Licensed Massage Therapist, Reiki Master Teacher, and is well studied in nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic therapies. Lana is a gifted intuitive and her passion to help is to bring joy to the lives of children, couples and families.
She opened a health food store to bring natural foods and supplements into the community.
NOT Cheaper by the Dozen!
When we married we didn’t start out with just the two of us. We combined two families and not only a couple of kids either. We each had 6 children ranging in ages from 8 years old to 20. That is an instant family of 14 people! Yet we have never looked back or said, “What were we thinking?”
The last 20 years together have been ones of adventure and joy. Dr. Bruce who goes by the names of Dad, Grandpa, Honey, and Bruce adopted all 6 of Lana’s children, thus making the family united. The evening news cameras were at the courthouse to film the event and we had a crowd on hand. The local newspaper gave front page coverage dubbing us “The Brady Bunch Times Two,” and the Associated Press picked up the story, which was told across the U.S.
Our amazing family has grown with marriages and the blessings of grandchildren. How would you deal with 5 weddings in the same year?
Now that is a story.
Currently we have 32 of the brightest grandchildren in the world. And speaking of the world, our 12 little families are spread out from coast to coast and border to border in the U.S. and on 3 different continents.
We have enjoyed working together over the years in our office and are now having even more fun teaching, lecturing and working with patients and clients using the TNT method with our distant energy sessions.
The future is bright!
We closed our storefront office in 2009 to pursue a higher goal to lift people who are waiting for the help they need to succeed. We are now helping and inspiring more people than we ever possibly could by staying put in our office limited by time and space.
In school, Dr. Bruce picked up an inspiring tip from a husband/wife team of doctors. They said, “Practice where you want to retire.” He took that to heart and set up a practice here in beautiful Montana. With our busy life we are far from retirement, but we are living in the place of our dreams. The beautiful nature scenes you see here on our website are literally from our neighborhood.
Are you a pioneer at heart, searching for your dream and ready to move in whatever direction it takes to find the place you long to settle in, the place you really want to be?
We work as a team. Our passion is to help and teach people like you how to live your dream of rich vibrant health. Through teaching our courses and educating , we show people like you how you can make a difference by helping others too.
Our goal is to share a wealth of love, health, and prosperity with our family, friends and people across the globe like you.
