The OM Program is used to reinforce healthy maturation. We use the program for a number of reasons:

  • In children, if development has been disrupted or is at risk of being blocked from a current stress or trauma, the program reduces symptoms exacerbated by these stressors.
  • In adults, it is especially useful at times of transition or troublesome periods, which can actually be childhood trauma patterns repeating themselves. 

Dr. Erin has chosen to call this the “OM Program”, as OM is the original sound, or the corrective force of Creation, and also because this program is to Optimize Maturation.

Taken over a three-to-six month period, it covers the period of development between birth and puberty – a critically important time.

Think of ACE (Adverse Childhood Event) scores, and how higher ACE scores are associated with a greater risk of disease in adulthood. The OM Program, more aptly called “Developmental Optimization” helps us ‘reset’ traumas of childhood, of either physical or emotional nature.

Many patients experience a significant change or experience at some point during the typical three-to-six-month period that the program is done. It is important that patients enter into the OM Program with a level of commitment to see it through; this system supports deep change that deserves respect and continuity of care. Every patient is unique and individual changes and experiences should be discussed with your physician. Reactions range from calming hyperactive children, increasing awareness and alertness in older patients complaining of poor memory, to aiding individuals with autoimmune type diseases to display more normalized immune function.

While it is almost easy to see how the OM Program could be universally prescribed in today’s world, the plan is used with discretion for those individuals and for those times that reflect its need the most. If you are interested in trying the program, please speak with your Options Naturopathic physician.

Homeopathy can help an individual re-experience a negative event with some distance, and aid in allowing the individual the opportunity to re-perceive the original event with new clarity and healing. The homeopathic OM Program stimulates the proper development of the endocrine, digestive, and nervous systems and can also correct errors in organ function caused by interruptions to normal development. Since we can always help an individual balance himself during formative development, the program is not only used in childhood. Adults who have signs of developmental disruptions often benefit from it as well, even when physical or emotional traumas occurred twenty to forty years earlier, or when the trauma cannot be precisely identified. We aid the body in re-linking the neurological structures to the actual organs and vice versa. Because the body has a natural tendency to complete these connections on its own, even if delayed by decades, the OM Program can be significant in most patients.

*Update Jan 2019: Dr. Erin has created a two hour training course for practitioners wishing to learn more about the OM Program (Brain Protocol), its background, therapeutic indications, and use.
