Affiliate Centers: Let’s get it going…

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

hey everyone,
These are exciting times in The Acne Practice and in the world of chronic ailments in general. I’ve noticed that pessimism is slowly being replaced with an optimism that is based purely in tangible proof rather than theory. It’s long overdue.


Anyway, got sidetracked there for a moment. The reason for this post is to talk about the concept of vision creation, realization of visions, and the continuing evolution of this global practice/movement.


Before I unveil the details of my new vision, I’d like to recap the story of my prior visions in this medical project:


2006 Vision: while running on a treadmill in a Crunch gym, I came to the realization that if I were to capture the innovations that were going on in the office, new patients would be able to enter this newly created bootcamp program without hesitation or fear. I knew I had to capture the results in higher resolution than had ever been captured before because embellished testimonials had flooded the television creating widespread skepticism, failure, and disillusionment. In the original vision, the videos would have to be epic in nature and irrefutable in their resolution. It would be made obvious to all that acne is a treatable situation. I was adamant about this goal.


1st Vision Realized: In early 2008, the video gallery had reached its stride and those who were inquiring knew it was real. To anyone who was still wary, the only recommendation I had after the body of work had become extensive was, “try to watch more videos in full screen.” My philosophy had always been that anyone who had become too disillusioned to see the difference in these HD videos may not be emotionally ready for victory over a tough condition. I was naturally weeding out the winners from those who were not ready to win yet.


Mid 2008 Vision: While the gallery was proving the impossible to the world, a new vision was born in 2008. Word of the innovations of the practice was spreading worldwide and suffering individuals began begging for ways to get treated from locations other than New York City. The demand prompted the idea of The Home Version of Dr. Neal’s Acne Bootcamp. This vision came with many challenges that would have to be precisely addressed before the release of the program to the public. You see, if this program could not replicate the success rate of the office version, then the primary goal of defeating pessimism and disillusionment would be tarnished. As it was worked out, it became obvious that the main challenge of the home version was how to replicate the emotional and detailed support of the primary program through the online medium. This challenge would prove attainable by using a set of rigid rules in the practice. The key rule being that any home version client who was concerned about anything would immediately email through a sophisticated email system and chase down any concern until it was resolved.


2nd Vision Realized: After 3 years of shipping Starter Kits all over the world, the home version has proven its success both in an expanding HD gallery of its own and countless happy emails here. It turned out that home version clients, once they realized the rigidity of the program, were also able to tenaciously chase down victory from all over the world.




It’s now 2011 and after having fully realized what seemed like monumental challenges, future visions have been lighting up every day.


Here’s the newest 2011 vision: The next chapter of the project introduces the expansion of the Affiliate Centers which, like all the other far-reaching goals here, will be realized with the support of those who believe in this global movement.


The Affiliate Center in New York is up and running and I’ve been hearing great things from bootcamp clients who have utilized this additional service. The services of the affiliate centers are basic and aimed at simply speeding up the final cosmetic result after a client has inactivated their skin with the bootcamp kit. These centers are not required in this program but since time = scarring both physically and emotionally, they can prove quite helpful when dealing with an emotionally charged condition.


Here’s the challenge: When a doctor or skin care specialist is passionate about their work, it’s very difficult for them to not introduce their own philosophy and ideas into the current program. This sticky and senstive situation puts a bootcamp member at risk of failure as they are now getting conflicting advice.


The Second Challenge: Cosmetic services are historically very expensive and thus a plan to use them creates more stress for many people who are already suffering.

The Solution: To solve these important problems, I will be searching for affiliates who are eager to become a part of this global movement. I will also be using the power of bootcamp client feedback to make sure conflicting information is not creating a disturbance in the rigid program. As I see it in my vision, bootcamp clients in every city will actively contribute to the practitioner selection process, creating perfect consistency and skill in the affiliate centers worldwide. To keep the mission moving forward, I will help support affiliates as they will be offering cosmetic services for a special low price for bootcamp members.


If you are a physician or an aesthetician who is interested in becoming an exclusive affiliate in your area, feel free to contact me anytime. I will be focusing on all US cities first, but international applicants can also contact me to prepare for the future.

Here’s my vision for an ideal candidate:

1) Licensed Aesthetician or Physician
2) Have your own office setting or eager to rent your own space for part of the week. (these affilate relationships will be autonomous businesses who are affiliated with the mission)
3) Committed to the project and fully understanding of the pitfalls and consequences of conflicting advice for acne sufferers.
4) A professional who can see that a real innovation has taken place in this practice and despite their own expertise, is still open to learning new healing methods.
5) Excited to be an exclusive affiliate and to become a part of a global movement that is rapidly expanding.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Let’s get it going,
-Dr. Neal

    Hi there Dr. Neal,
    I am very excited to see ur ways to cure acne. I came to Yale University for a visiting and relaxing since last week and will go back to China at around Sept. 10.
    I got my Phd in civil engineering in 1996, and now I have my own private equity firm. I have invested more than 40 companies in China. Three of them are doing medical business, one is the largest online store in China to sell medicine. I think your method to cure acne can be run in the online business and also I will invest chained store in China to expand it.
    I wonder if I can applying for being the exclusive affiliator to expand ur business in china?
    Hope i can hear from you soon.
    Wish you the best,
    james zhang

    This has inspired me. I deal with hidradenitis suppurativa, when you have a disease like this it determines your entire life. It makes your daily life that much more difficult and painful. I do not take any drugs, I feel it all every day and im 24 and have lived with this since I was 16 or younger. I watched the videos …but it seems too goo to be true.?

    hey Melissa,
    Feel free to email me anytime about your condition in the “ask dr. neal” area of the homepage.
    thanks,

Anxiety and Depression: A Study of Our Humanity

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

AcneStoryImage

While helping people with chronic conditions for the past 10 years, I have been thrust into a position to work with all sides of our humanity. Specifically, the very common situations of Depression and Anxiety. Through my personal experience and while working with countless others, I have developed a vast arsenal of weapons to fight this powerful force of nature. I’d like to share my experience on this blog to help those who still find themselves searching for balance.


My healing philosophy is called
It’s made up from the terms “Energetics” and “Expressivity”

Energetics: (Energy and Movement)

I have observed that anyone who sits most of the day and does not exercise every single day will eventually decompensate emotionally. This reality of the natural world is not really negotiable. In my opinion, it is a matter of fact, universal consequence of a seated culture. The only aspect that is negotiable is whether it happens today, tomorrow, or next year. If you watch The Discovery Channel, you will see that the animal kingdom has evolved to constantly move around. Once anyone sees the objective nature of this reality, they will be in a strong position to do what is necessary to find control of their lives.
To take action: see the crossfit category of the blog. (or the crossfit for beginners category)



Expressivity: (Expression and Emotional Release)


As we all know, being athletic is not the only key to happiness. As social beings, we are interactive, expressive, and in need of heart-felt connections to survive. While relationships are not created instantaneously, there are many other ways to express one’s self.
Some common examples are dance class, acting class, singing class, karaoke, etc. My favorite is learning how to accompany your own voice with newly aquired guitar or piano skills.
While challenging, you need to know that millions of people all over the world are learning how to play and sing cover songs every day. Its not quite as difficult as you may imagine.
Since I wrote the post, “Anyone Can Play Guitar”, I have taught many people how to join in on the action that I finally found at age 29.



I want to share with you an intimate moment from this past holiday season that illustrates the dramatic emotional power of music therapy.
I’ll set the scene:
I just met the lead guitarist Eric that day and the drummer is a keyboardist who was experimenting on two drums. The real music therapy story however lies with my buddy Alex who was playing the harmonica. He’s a 36 year old full time professional who had never played music in his life. In an effort to enrich his life, he bought a harmonica and amazingly was able to seemlessly join the session after playing for only 3 weeks…!
Watch his face at the end of the jam as he miraculously turns from a non-musician into a musician. This level of transformation is truly a healing phenomenon.
Try not to let the modern business of music or any critic sway you from this human need to express. It is vital to emotional wellness. Watch his face at the end of the jam, it’s amazing…





I wrote that song during a rough patch a few years ago when my skin was bugging me, my energy was low from being overworked, and my expression level was not high enough.

Here’s the lyrics if anyone is feeling it:


“Let me go”


I run for miles and I can talk through smiles,
I guess I’m alright.
you never know,
I can’t be so right.
you’d tell me so, oh


I made you holler,
I’ve been, concocting knowledge,
I am sorry, to let me go.
I meant to call you,
to let you know,


that it’s time, It’s time to let me go.
cause this fight, It’s all I really know.


I run for miles and I can’t find my smile,
this can’t be alright.
I think it shows.
you’re always brighter, girl, but,
it don’t work no more. no


I feel you standing with your,
hair it’s landing across my shoulder.
but not this time, you know I’m trying, girl, but,
there ain’t no light.


cause it’s time, It’s time to let me go.
cause this fight, It’s all I really know.


run for cover, run for cover.
leave me there in the morning.
run for cover, run for cover.
don’t ask me why in the morning.


oh it’s time, it’s time to let me go.
cause this fight, it’s all I really know.
