Inflammation and the Access Health Renewal Program

Inflammation is a complex, persistent, and damaging process for which medicine has
limited direct diagnostic or treatment resources.
In fact, many tests can be non specific or misleading, and treatments, especially anti-
inflammatory medications, have side effects and even lead to further chronicity.

In our experience, we have had exceptional success locating, identifying, and
resolving inflammation processes.
  • Our iScanTM signals reveal affected locations, contributing to the SMART Assessment guiding treatment strategy.
  • Our Access TherapyTM produces reversal of tissue dysfunction and nerve hyperactivity, to “turn off” the source of irritation and “re-booting” normality.
  • Our modalities promote circulation to eliminate toxins, enzyme production to combat oxidative stress, and tissue changes to decongest and drain.
In summary, our resources are oriented to find, understand, and reduce inflammation
through interacting with its mechanical characteristics.
Here is how tissue mechanics become the key to inflammation:
Irritation produces reactions:
  • Increased fluid flow to cleanse
  • Increased blood delivery to nourish
  • Tissue tightness to bind and reinforce.
  • Nerve hyperactivity (pain)
It’s common sense that these would be the results of irritation, and science research
has proven it. These are also established as typical components of inflammation.

What would cause such irritation? It’s the same at the cellular level as it is at the
everyday of which we are aware: Input to the body exceeds the limit of safety. In the
interest of protection, tissue cells get stressed and resist. Repeatedly scratch the skin
and it will redden, stiffen, swell and hurt.

The swelling that follows a knee surgery, or the heat and redness of an infection, or
the pain and pressure of an intestinal inflammatory process – all involve aspects of
abnormal mechanics. While helpful initially as a defense, inflammation becomes
damaging when it persists. The body has natural anti-inflammatory factors, but they
can become overwhelmed by chronic irritation. Unchecked, inflammation leads to
breakdown and failure, and lowers resistance to infection. Reversing and resolving
inflammation is essential for recovery and well being.

Some of these problems are sufficiently visible to the eye, others are hidden deep
within the body. Extensive imaging such as CT may produce identifiable shapes if
distortion or fluid accumulation accompanies inflammation. But this is not always
available or infallible.

Low level, chronic inflammation has less visibility. Inflammation is not only present in
infection or injury, it also is involved in important problems such as artery disease,
organ disorders, and multiple sclerosis. Hidden infections can persist for years in
biofilm pockets between tissues. Blood testing such as CRP may suggest its presence
but cannot specify location or identify involvements.

Taking anti-inflammatory drugs can condition the sympathetics to become hyperactive:
the drugs inhibit processes that essentially are survival oriented, so those processes
work harder to overcome the drug and proceed. This worsens the physiological
picture. Fibromyalgia has been linked to such treatment of chronic injury. High blood
pressure and other disease dangers are linked to these medications as well.

Another source of inflammation that has only recently become a focus is that which
accompanies obesity, metabolic problems, diabetes and insulin problems. These
disorders add further interference to attempts to recover from conditions that are
oriented around pain and disability.

The mediators (directing or facilitating agents) in the inflammatory process ensure
defensive actions. They include substances such as nitric oxide, cytokines and
protease enzymes as well as neurotransmitters. These substances have been found
to be influenced by or cause mechanical alterations of the cells and tissues. Further
factors continue to be identified in scientific research, such as brain hormones
previously thought to be solely specific to direct kidney function

The sympathetic nervous system is a major participant. It is plentiful throughout blood
vessels, the source of many inflammatory responses. These local nerve and
connective tissue structures have not been well studied since measurement methods
are lacking. It is known that they can become as tight as steel in reaction to irritation.

Irritation causes immobility, immobility causes irritation; irritation causes inflammation;
inflammation causes irritation, inflammation causes immobility.
Focusing on the mechanics suggests a way to interact and intervene for assessment
and treatment.

We find that the mechanics are a useful “handle” for identifying and helping
inflammation. The altered mechanics provide the Sonotect signal that guides our
SMARTTM assessment to identify the presence, severity and location of inflamed

When the treatment interacts with the tissue, its tension is triggered to release. The
nerve normalizes mechanically, which means the nerve can normalize in its function.
The sympathetic/inflammation activity diminishes. The pain is reduced. The associated
reactions such as swelling and vascular hyperactivity calm down.

Physical problems and their recovery relate to these processes. Examples include
fibromyalgia, surgical procedures, injuries, multiple sclerosis, digestive system
problems, skin ailments, respiratory conditions, joint disorders, nerve dysfunction, and

and Solutions

Inflammation complicates fibromyalgia, surgical procedures, injuries, multiple sclerosis, digestive system problems, skin ailments, respiratory conditions, joint disorders, nerve dysfunction - nearly every physical problem.
I had Crohn’s disease and lost nearly all of my colon in several surgeries. I had to use a colostomy bag. I had a very limited diet, and of course a lot of pain. Working with Ariel resolved the chronic inflammation. In my follow up scope exam, my surgeon was amazed to find that the tissue had normalized. My colon was able to be reattached and get back into function.I got my life back!

Inflammation and the nervous system
Inflammation is a response of the body to various stimuli, essentially for survival
purposes. The hallmarks are pain, swelling, redness, heat, and loss of function. Cells
present throughout the body recognize undesirable factors. The vascular system gets
involved to deliver the fluids involved and provide increased transport.
