Diane Minkner, Brain Integration Specialist, Applied Kinesiologist & Holistic Healthcare Practitioner

Diane MinknerAt my practices in Scottsdale, Arizona and Coeur d’Alene Idaho, I have a full homeopathic natural pharmacy onsite for your convenience.  When you step into my treatment room you will soon feel for yourself the zen environment that surrounds you with positive energy.

I approach all clients through the whole body approach to healing, evaluating wellness through physical, mental, emotional, and physiological  perspectives.

Here’s a little about me…I entered the health care field after I discovered whole body healing myself, after decades of emotional, mental as well as physical suffering as a result of not letting go of trauma from my childhood.  As an adopted child who struggled to forge connections with others, I began my own journey of healing when I  became aware that healing involves not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well.  By balancing and integrating all areas of my life, I  became receptive to healing for the first time in my life.  What began as a journey through self improvement transitioned into a life’s passion for helping others.

I had learning disabilities personally touch my own life.  Living myself with an undiagnosed auditory processing disorder & multiple learning disabilities, I struggled throughout my teenage years with low self esteem.  I felt stupid and disconnected from my peers.  I found out how feeling awkward and different can detrimentally affect a young person’s life.  I also know how unresolved problems snowball and become bigger problems.  I personally felt the sting of emotional problems, as an adult with low self esteem and predictably developed reoccurring dysfunctional patterns in my life.  As an adopted child, my fear of abandonment dictated many decisions in my life including accepting poor behavior from others and boundary violations.  I understand how a person can feel helpless, hopeless and “stuck” in their own patterns.

Not only do I know first hand what growing up with challenges feels like, but I know what it is like to be on the other side of the fence; as a parent.  Having raised children diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, I know how frustrating and heartbreaking it was to watch my loved ones struggle in a system which was not designed for children who learn differently.  Being a parent with learning disabled children, I experienced myself so I truly understand how widespread the stress within a family can become.  Communication can break down and tension can mount when parents and siblings struggle to understand why a child behaves differently.  Relationships suffer.  Marriages can dissolve.  The whole family suffers.

I really do know through my own personal experience how untreated emotional blocks eventually produce physical illness and disease.  After journeying through my own personal healing by letting go myself of things from my past I have now dedicated my life to helping achieve healing by letting go!  I want to help you change your life for the better.  You too can let go and overcome challenges.  Call me please!  I want to help you and your loved one!

If you’re still reading……..here’s the boring stuff about me!  I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and completed post graduate work in Bio-Kinesiology and Applied Physiology.  I graduated from the University of Maryland University College Summa Cum Laude. I was originally trained in Brain Integration Technique to help with learning disorders, but found that Brain Integration is not enough on its own.  Clients definitely improved but there was so much more involved in anchoring fixed belief systems and behavioral patterns.  Treating emotional disorders can involve amino acid therapies,  natural supplements as well as homeopathic detoxes and in many cases additional energetic work dealing with miasms and spiritual ancestral issues.  I am determined and very persistent when I work with every patient in my practice to get them to the best that they can be.  I have extensive experience treating individuals suffering effects from toxic mold exposure and Lyme Disease.  My treatment plans not only help the physical body to heal but also include restructuring the brain from the effects toxins have on the neurological system.  Many people are not even aware that depression can be caused by heavy metals in the brain, Lyme Disease, or even black mold exposure.
