Dr. Clifford Nickel of Union Cross Chiropractic in Kernersville, NC Dr. Clifford Nickel, a Doctor of Chiropractic, received his undergraduate education at Western Michigan University and Michigan State University. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis Missouri. Dr. Nickel has studied Homeopathy through the British Institute of Homeopathy, and has studied and used nutrition and magnet therapy since 1982.

He has been certified in Electro-dermal Screening since 1990. This technology is now termed Meridian Stress Assessment and is registered with the FDA as a non-invasive and non-significant risk device.

He has written a book on magnetic therapy, entitled, “To Be or Not To Be Magnetized”, (soon to be published). This text reviewed in depth how the

body is electro-magnetic in nature and heals itself only when sufficient magnetic potentials are generated and maintained. An extensive bibliography and many magnets and magnetic devices were reviewed during the writing process. Both static field devices and pulsed magnetic devices have been tested by him. He reviews several home care devices that anyone can buy that make a significant improvement in health.

Dr. Nickel practices Chiropractic yet believes that everyone needs multifaceted treatment in order to attain optimal health. Regular adjustments, exercise, magnet and electrotherapy as well as targeted counseling are necessary to bring stressed patients into balance, spirit-soul-and body. Patient education is a prime factor in helping patients get well—how to clean up ones personal toxic environment will frequently be discussed as an essential factor to getting well.


In July of 2008 Dr. Nickel helped his father get his Georgia house ready for sale so he could move
to sunny Florida. In the process Dr. Nickel fell off an attic ladder and struck a block wall with his shoulder—it was dislocated, tearing muscles in the process, but thank God it was not broken.
Dr. Nickel drew on his experience of magnet therapy to return to work by the next day.

According to orthopedic physicians this type of injury would require surgical intervention and require that he lift no more than the weight of a coffee cup for three months. But with the help of the PER-2000 he was able to continue work from day one.

Since 1950, research initiated by Reinhold Voll, M.D. has established that acupuncture points possess greater electrical conductivity than surrounding tissue. Dr. Voll held that low-level reactions of the body could be accurately measured and effectively treated. By measuring changes in electrical conductivity at many of the body’s acupuncture points, he believed that the health of the body could be determined and helped with homeopathic remedies.

Today, many devices exist which measure these electrical properties of acupuncture points. Acupuncture works on the principle that there is a network of energy channels, called meridians
over the surface of the body, which reflect functional status of internal organs and tissues.

Everything that we come in contact with, be it germs, chemicals, trauma and even disturbing emotions must first pass through the meridian system. Stress is a powerful part of life but our reaction to stress can be trained to be at peace in a troubled world—or it can be overcome with
fret and concern. As one of my Chiropractic mentors use to say, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right!”
