12-hour Treatment has Changed Lives

By DR. RON BARNES, Courier Columnist

Each of us is a storyteller. Each life is, indeed, a collection of stories, and no one has the same stories that you do.
Our stories make us unique. They are the cornerstones of our identity.
Some stories have a profound impact on us. One of the most life-altering stories for me began in August 2008 when I met with a good friend, Lynn Leu. We had spoken a few weeks earlier at a banquet and, when she indicated that her life had taken a dramatic change for the better, we agreed to meet for lunch to discuss her turnaround.
“I have never been happier,” she told me. ” I am making a significant difference in the lives of others.”
Dr. Leu (then Samati Keehan) explained that she had spent 2007 learning brain integration technique (BIT) and was now treating people with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia or other similar learning challenges, whether or not they had an official diagnosis. The more she told me about BIT and how clients of all ages were experiencing dramatic and permanent changes after 12 hours of treatment and without drugs, the clearer it became to me that our older grandson, Dylan, might benefit from this approach.
Dylan was entering his junior year of high school in Ames, Iowa. He was scheduled to take the SAT, the results of which would be a major factor in determining whether he would attend college. His parents, both university graduates with advanced degrees, were concerned that he might not do well enough on the test to even qualify for college entrance. He was doing poorly in a number of high school subjects.
After my lunch with Lynn and after reading a book on BIT case studies, I was convinced that Dylan needed this treatment program. At the time, Lynn was overbooked, so his mother, Lisa, called a friend in Ft Collins, Colo., who was a BIT practitioner. She agreed to see him over the weekend.
Dylan’s non-invasive treatment took a total of 12 hours spread over two days. Three days after arriving home, he told his dad that he no longer needed his assistance with algebra. In several weeks, his grade in that subject went from a D to an A. Similar dramatic increases occurred in his other subjects. He also did well on his SAT. He was accepted as a student at Iowa State University and is now beginning his senior year in the double major of global resource systems and environmental studies. He has received one B grade in college and the rest have been As. He is spending this summer as an ISU teaching assistant in Uganda and will present a paper at the 2013 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium in Edinburgh, Scotland, in September.
Dylan’s success story is one of many – just as dramatic – that I know about through my contact with Lynn and her two partners at Prescott Brain Integration, Laura Fields and Delia Whitehead. If you want more information, I suggest you examine the stories of children, teens and adults who have benefited by brain integration by accessing prescottbrainintegration.com Because of their successes, we are fortunate to have five additional practitioners in this area, more than anywhere else in North America other than Denver/Boulder, Colo.
One additional comment. Delia Whitehead and Lynn Leu have expanded their practices to include people diagnosed with PTSD and/or who are suffering ongoing aftereffects of traumatic brain injuries, especially concussions and whiplash. They are confident that this is a population for which BIT can be life-changing. Their website has more information about this. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more.
