BioSet – A New Way to Treat Allergies
BioSet is a gentle, drug free means of eliminating food intolerances and environmental sensitivities. Based on the principle of the energetic body, as taught in Chinese medicine, BioSet utilizes the latest in modern computer technology to screen and treat patients. The community is offered a unique melding of ancient wisdom and modern science in the form of a non-invasive, holistic healing modality.
As we are taught in basic biochemistry, all substances, living and non-living, emit energy. Atoms attract and repel one another, building molecules and eventually complex structures, while creating energy frequencies that interact in positive and negative ways. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this energy flow is called Chi (Qi). Looking through an electron microscope, you can actually map this complex pattern of waves and frequencies. All substances have their own unique wave pattern or “song” that they sing energetically.
In TCM, disease or bodily dysfunction is thought of in terms of “blocked” energy flow. Biochemically, this means that somewhere within your body, the electromagnetic song, wavelength, or frequency of your unique molecular structure is being blocked by that of some competing substance. This substance could be a number of things including food, pollen, chemical, virus, or bacteria. According to the energetic model offered by TCM, this initial impasse is the hallmark of disease. When there is blockage, there is reactivity and when reactivity remains unchecked, disease follows.
BioSet measures the body’s energy flow and checks for energy blockages by using either electro-dermal screening techniques, or muscle testing. By introducing the energetic signature of a potentially reactive substance into the body’s energy field, the BioSet practitioner can determine whether or not a person is reactive (allergic). If the body’s energy flow remains strong, the person is non-reactive. However, if energy flow tests prove to be blocked, a reactivity or sensitivity is present. By activating specific acupressure points along the spine, the BioSet practitioner is then able to clear for the blockage and thereby, clear for the sensitivity as well. Once the blockage is cleared and the energy flow is strong, the physical symptoms associated with the sensitivity will also diminish. Thus, if you are reactive to pollen and you clear for pollen, you will no longer experience the physical symptoms associated with it (i.e., sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, etc). The same is true for all food and environmental sensitivities.
When eliminating food and environmental sensitivities with the BioSet technique, it is important to follow certain clearing protocols, preparing the body to accept and retain treatments. There are five preliminary clearings that a patient must undergo before branching out into individual programs. These are amino acids and protein metabolism, phenolics, vitamins and minerals, sugars, and fatty acids. The order of these treatments is purposeful. In order to properly clear for any complex food item, one first needs to clear for the individual, component parts of the food in question (i.e., clear for vitamin C before clearing for oranges). After these preliminary clearings are out of the way, in most cases, only one session is required to successfully and permanently clear a sensitivity.
In addition to being an effective means of reducing symptoms related to food and environmental sensitivities, BioSet is also an effective means of helping to reduce inflammation, and facilitating detoxification. In the same way that BioSet reduces allergic reactivity to foods and pollens, clearing for a toxin helps to re-educate the body’s immune response regarding the toxin in question. When clearing for metals, parasites, and chemicals, not only do you help the body let go of toxic elements more efficiently, but also reduce the body’s reactivity. This helps to reduce the negative physical and behavioral side effects often associated with detox reactions.
BioSet and Children
Children comprise the bulk of my practice and I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with them. I came to BioSet in my search to heal my own children, and chose to make it part of my practice because of the success we experienced personally. BioSet works on a range of childhood disorders including autism, ADHD, asthma, and chronic sinus and ear infections. Its success lies in the fact that BioSet heals the child from the inside out. Children who suffer from these and other issues are highly sensitive individuals with overly reactive immune systems. More often than not, these children suffer from multiple food intolerance and environmental sensitivities. Because they are so reactive, their immune systems become easily overloaded simply fighting off everyday foods, which are misperceived as foreign antigens. The results are that these children often have little immune support left to fend off real threats in the form of bacterial or viral infections. Likewise, because they are reactive to so many foods, they neither digest, nor absorb their nutrients efficiently. Thus, vital organ systems are effectively undernourished, including the brain, which relies on a variety of proteins and fatty acids to produce the appropriate neurotransmitters essential in forging neural pathways. After clearing for food intolerances as well as chemical and environmental sensitivities, most children experience a marked improvement in both their physical symptomatology, and their emotional well-being.
