In the Dark is a non-fiction film that follows people with dyslexia and Dr. Phyllis Books, a holistic doctor in Austin, Texas who works to reverse the symptoms. Coming Soon – August 2018
Did you know?
- 20 % of high school graduates are functionally illiterate
- 68% of 4th graders are reading below grade level
- In high school, 64% are still reading below grade level
- 62% of non-readers drop out of high school
- Less than 1/3 of kids reading below grade level get help
- Dyslexia does not discriminate. It’s up to us to change it.
BNT® is like a family recipe that can be handed down. It is a skill that every mother or caretaker should have at her own disposal — to be able, with your own hands, to help support your family. It’s empowering, and when you learn how to do it, it feels like you can hand someone a gift. We have all we need to have this to help our children.
My 13 year old son has dyslexia and ADHD and motor coordination issues. After two weeks of practicing BNT® on him, we went to play tennis and he was connecting with the ball like I’ve never seen before. He was running with speed and agility and having a great time. His eye blinking and stuttering have decreased. My 17 year old daughter improved in many areas too. I couldn’t be happier?
BNT is so much more than I realized. It’s easy to learn, is well organized and thought out, and is taught in digestible chunks. Then it’s just a matter of practicing to get really good at it. The Results: I just had an 8 year old exclaim: “I”m having a great day. and I’m going to have a great life because I can read now“. What more reward could I ask?
We’ve tried so many different doctors and therapies. BNT® is like the missing piece of the puzzle, the thing that’s bringing everything together. BNT® showed me the body needs to be aligned and showed me how to do that. Now I get to take the healing into my own hands as a mother. I’m so grateful and it makes me feel so hopeful that my children can be the children God intended them to be.
It has been my privilege to have known Dr. Books for 18 years. I got to work with her, watch her work, and see the results she has with patients… I even saw a mother who was sobbing hysterically when her child was able to read coherently out loud for the first time in his life.
I use some of the results of what I learned with her everyday in my own practice There is not any other place to get this kind of work. I recommend her work highly.

I was definitely called to do this work. I have been Divinely guided and shown what to do with my life, and as long as I listen and follow, things have been good and fall into place.
Because I really wanted to help children reach their potential, my first degree was in education. And I was happy in my career. Then one day, I was told by “the man upstairs” to become a chiropractor – which made no sense to me at all. I was a school teacher with a masters degree in communication. But eventually, it was easier to do what I was asked to do, and everything started falling into place.
Today, I would have gone into Neuroscience, but 35 years ago that field didn’t exist. So if I was going to learn about the brain and how we learn, my only choices at that time were chiropractic (the natural way) or neurology.
Then shortly before graduation, I was “told” or “shown” that I was to work with kids. The kids in my vision were lined up from around the world; they were badly maimed, and I was working on their heads.
In the beginning, I had no intention of doing any of this!!!! But I was called …and after kicking and screaming, I listened. And His picture of what He wanted me to do, was much larger and different than mine.
Thank goodness I love to learn. In my thirst to learn about the brain and how we learn, I studied anything and everything I could get my hands on within the fields of health care, psychology, neuroscience, and child development, eastern and western medical approaches. Sprinkle all that book learning with raising children and helping with grandchildren, and Books Neural Therapy™ was born.

In my 30+ years of clinical practice, I’ve come up with an INTEGRATED system that helps children (of any age) with dyslexia, learning differences, …and lots of neurological disorders we don’t even know what to call. It helps re-integrate the body and the brain. It helps solve those tough cases.
And it works over and over again.
I applaud my colleague Dr. Phyllis Books for her research, love and dedication, in bringing Books Neural Therapy™ to the forefront of healing.
There is no doubt in my mind that with BNT, dyslexia can be totally reversed. Her book and online course are nothing less than brilliant! What an amazing and timely gift to give to the world.
Dr. Janet Taylor, Chiropractor of 38 years
What I discovered as a result of all my training is that the brain can change at every age, that conditions once considered permanent can be transformed, and that most experts missed seeing the solutions I have found.
They looked at the newer parts of brain, at drugs, and invasive techniques. I found the starting place for this kind of healing resides deep within layers of the oldest parts of our brain where patterns and negative circumstances may have shaped the developing brain and body.
As a physical therapist, I had sought many other therapies for my son who was performing below potential at school. I enjoyed the changes they had induced, but still feel that my son benefited greatly from Books Neural Therapy™. I could see the changes in coordination of his teamed eye movements after several sessions with her, as well as a general calming. The teachers appreciated this, as well. I myself have also benefited from going to Dr. Books. I could specifically feel a balance from what I feel was a better communication of the “fight or flight” and “calm focus” portions of my nervous system.
As a result of experiencing the benefits of Dr. Book’s techniques, I was very excited when I learned that she was developing a course to teach her work. The two main costs have been time and money, but the sacrifice of both have been well worth it. Dr. Books is a patient and thorough teacher. The online videos are invaluable for review of the nuances I didn’t catch in class! I look forward to being able to master and use this very valuable work for my own clients.

Books Neural Therapy: A Step-by Step Instruction Manual for YOU to Retrain Brains to Learn Easier and Faster
By Dr. Phyllis Books
Books Institute (August 11, 2021)
Paperback: 230 pages
Also available on Kindle.
“Take my hand. I’ll show you how to help your child.”In her first book, Reversing Dyslexia: Improving Learning and Behavior Without Drugs, Dr. Books updated and upgraded the definition of dyslexia, showing readers why we dare believe dyslexia can be improved and often reversed. Drawing upon her three decades of experience and a wealth of scientific research, she revealed what is needed to create lasting change and shared examples from some of her thousands of patients.
In her new book, Books Neural Therapy: A Step-by-Step Instruction Manual to Help YOU Retrain Brains to Learn Easier and Faster, Dr. Books teaches readers how to actually apply this body-brain approach to learning. Originally developed for the medical and alternative medical community, this manual is now available for both dedicated parents and professionals. Since one out of five people worldwide is dyslexic, the need for real help is great. The answer is here at our fingertips. It lies in our hearts and in our hands. This manual provides the map.
This book is not a parenting manual nor is it a form of tutoring. This BNT manual provides a methodical way of gently clearing trauma and inefficient wiring in the brain and body and then setting in a solid neurological foundation so that children of any age can learn without tears and frustration. It provides a framework and tools to help resolve eye tracking, reading and comprehension issues, memory, auditory processing disorders, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, anxiety and various other learning and behavior issues.Dr. Books offers us her hand and her decades of experience. “Take my hand. I’ll show you how to help your child.”
“You couldn’t ask for a better class. What a wonderful opportunity to do this from anywhere in the world. You just can’t get this work anywhere else. I just love the way she teaches.” — Ambuka
“It’s been amazing to watch my wife learn BNT®. It’s already transforming our family. The class is giving my wife determination and hope where she had none. It has really opened my eyes to the potential of what this work can do.” — Eric
“I encourage anyone to take a leap of faith and take this course. Dr. Books is a generous teacher, an expert healer, and a true genius for creating this program.” — Liz
Books Neural Therapy®: Online Course Levels 1-3
By Dr. Phyllis Books
Level 1: The Body Circuit: Building the Foundation.
Here we address the basic building blocks of learning, the body itself. Primitive reflexes, development sequences that went awry, traumas and glitches in signals from the body to the brain are addressed. If trauma is blocking, learning doesn’t happen…or gets laid atop a messy foundation. BNT can quickly and painlessly help lift off the layers of trauma which then removes a lot of stress around learning.
Level 2: The Cranial Circuit: Releasing Head Traumas and TMJ (Jaw joint) Issues.
Here we literally “get your head on straight.” We address the head itself and all the ways it can become neurologically disorganized through injuries, falls or faulty connections and signals. WE also address various issues of the jaw including digestion, releasing physical and emotional trauma stored in the jaw and throughout the body, and repairing communications between skull and pelvis, head and tailbone. You’ll be amazed at all the neurological architecture that keeps your body and brain working together.
Level 3: The Learning Circuit. Resolving Dyslexia, ADHD and Various Learning and Behavioral Issues.
Each level is cumulative, and now we bring everything together to address the “school brain” or higher cognitive functions. First we address reading, auditory processing, math and handwriting. In the advanced section, we deal with eye tracking, coordination of hearing and visual channels, memory, ADHD, addictions, OCD, Anxiety, reading comprehension and retention, destructive thought patterns and self-esteem.
As a reading specialist and a classroom teacher, I really believe that the KEY to understanding and helping these kids with learning differences is to integrate Books Neural Therapy™ with the learning strategies.
If you’re considering studying Books Neural Therapy™, I believe that it will be the most important thing that you can do for all these kids.
– Melissa, teacher, mother, reading specialist
I watched Dr. Books create miracle changes in my dyslexic son…This work called to my deepest self and I am thrilled to start training in Level 3 now. I love having the online videos to watch again and again at my own time so I can perfect my BNT skills. Dr. Books’ support has been excellent.

How long does it take to really learn this work?
A: How fast you learn depends on your background, the time you have to devote to practicing, and your sense of urgency.
What makes you really good at it, though, is practice and repetition. You can learn the concepts and even the sequences as fast as you are able… But good old-fashioned practice, just like you did if you ever played the piano or took ballet, is what makes the difference.
Is there a way to “fast track” my learning process?
A: Yes, indeed. Lots of practice is important to commit the steps to memory (much like playing the piano, the mastery comes after you memorize all the notes and can really feel the music moving through you).
The “fast track” method involves mentoring by or shadowing of Dr. Books in person. The repetition of sequences gets embedded in your memory. Mostly though, you get to watch the changes happen in clients before your eyes; which is encouraging, motivating, and downright inspiring. You’ll see all the nuances and variations that can occur and learn how Dr. Books thinks and processes situations real time.
Can I do the work on myself?
A: Not really. It’s good to let someone do the work on you. Some parts you may be able to do on yourself in an emergency (I’ve heard some very creative stories about situations where people figured out how to do some realignments!) Mostly, it’s hard to reach all the places on your own body. And secondly, it helps to be in “receive” mode to let you nervous system relax and re-boot.
I’m not sure whether to send my child to you for care or to learn the therapy and perform it myself.
A: My advice is not to practice this work on your child right away. Learn it first by practicing on others. You’ll wear your child out and they may build up resistance. Wait until you are really smooth and proficient before you attempt this with your own child. Some people like to send their kids to our center for care so the child gets help quickly. Then you can follow up with tune ups as the child goes through growth spurts, hormonal changes, etc. What if I do not have a professional license to touch yet?
Can’t I just do level 3? Do I have to follow the class sequences?
A: Each class level builds upon the first or prior level. Each step follows a sequence with no short cuts. The entire foundational neurology must be tuned up in levels 1 and 2 before the learning differences and dyslexia can be cleared. It is this trademarked sequencing that brings lasting results.
“I realized I could really make a difference in the world. I am going to be able to do something big with my career that I was lacking just as a massage therapist. It was profound. BNT starts out nice and easy and it builds upon each section…Learn at your own pace. It is one of the best courses I have ever done. I highly recommend it.”
