Dr. Thurman Fleet (1895 – 1983) was a great healer who lived in San Antonio, Texas. His healing practice was so busy that the city had to re-route traffic in order to accommodate the people going to his office. His practice grew so fast that he had to move three times in order to conform with fire codes. Furthermore, the family members of most of the prominent medical doctors in Texas at the time were Dr. Fleet’s patients. People came to Dr. Fleet from all over to be helped to heal from practically any dis-ease. The healing results that Dr. Fleet’s patients achieved were unequalled.
Dr. Fleet founded the Concept-Therapy Zone Healing Technique in 1931. He taught the following:
There are ONLY SIX kinds of disturbances that can affect the human body. These are GLANDULAR, ELIMINATIVE, NERVOUS, DIGESTIVE, MUSCULAR, and CIRCULATORY. All diseased conditions, aches and pains, and other discomforts experienced by the body can be attributed to one or more of the above disturbances to the body’s 6 systems or Zones.
Diagnosis has always been very inaccurate. In fact, C. Everett Koop, the former Surgeon General of the United States, said that approximately 70% of all medical diagnosis done in this country are in error. According to Dr. Fleet, The Zone Technique offers a process that eliminates the inaccuracy of diagnosis by enabling the patient to know exactly what is happening in their body.
The human brain is composed of many centers. These centers are formed in the embryonic stage of life and are developed from the dorso-medial ectoderm of the embryo. There is a center which controls the glands of the body, a center which is associated with the organs of elimination, a center which regulates the central nervous system, and which is differentiated as an ectodermal neural plate in the dorso-medial region of the ectoderm. The digestive organs are regulated by a brain center. In the motor cortex of the brain we find a center which controls all of the muscles of the body, and in the caudate nuclei (both), we find the center which regulates the flow of fluids (circulation) through the body.
As the body may be properly classified as an ELECTRICAL MACHINE, these six brain centers represent the POSITIVE POLE of the body, and specific related points in the spinal cord represent the NEGATIVE POLE of the body. When there is a disturbance in any of the bodily areas, one or more of these centers are shorted out, so to speak. There has been a disruption of normal function of the entire center due to the effect of emotional, physical, or chemical stress.
The Zone doctor examines the patient to determine which of the brain centers are not in harmony with the systems they control. This is done by the Zone doctor feeling specific points on the patient’s head. These points are related to the six brain centers by nerve connections. When a brain center is not sending the proper signals to its system, all bodily material associated with that system suffers. In order to correct this, the zone doctor stimulates specific points in the spinal cord. There are six sets of four points in the spinal cord (negative pole) that are related to the six brain centers (positive pole). Stimulation of the proper points by the Zone doctor sends healing energy up the spinal cord to the brain centers that need balancing. The balanced brain centers then send out the proper signals to the body’s systems and the body is better able to heal itself.
Any doctor who uses Zone Therapy fully agrees with Dr. Fleet that the Power that made the body is the ONLY Power that heals the body. The body is better able to heal itself when its systems are balanced.
There are many components of health. Having the energy balanced in the six systems of the body is one of these components. Other aspects of achieving and maintaining health include: proper eating, proper exercise, proper recuperation (physical and mental), and right thinking and right acting. The Zone doctor addresses all of these with his or her patients.
