My response reflects what you teach in the book, and that is to do as much non-interventional treatment as you can, as soon as you can, because you never know for sure what will be the healing trigger appropriate for you. Sometimes it just takes a 'full frontal assault' of everything you can bring to bear on it. You have provided for us the best answer for our many suffering customers.
