BASIC TENETS

WE BELIEVE

We believe in bio-individuality...

Everyone is biochemically, genetically, and psychoemotionally unique.

So we personalize therapy and treat the individual.

Bioregulatory medicine is NOT about suppressing symptoms with pharmaceuticals.

We find - and treat - the root cause(s) of illness. (Otherwise, illness will just recur.)

We believe in the innate intelligence of the human body.

If given what it needs, it will regulate on its own.

Our goal is to optimize each individual's unique terrain. The body is like a garden...

Each of us needs clean air, water, proper nutrients...

To maintain our internal and external biological ecosystem.

Consider this: our body's operating system is about a million years old...

It's done an amazing job of keeping our species alive.

But in the last century or so, we've invented about 80,000 man-made toxins.

From plastics to artificial sweeteners (and other "Frankenfoods") to cell phones...

And yes, synthetic drugs (traces of which can be found in our drinking water).

That's asking a lot of our body's amazing - and inherent - ability to detox.

On top of all this, our species has grown sedentary... and our lifestyles are no longer in synch with our operating system.

We now face an epidemic of chronic "dis-ease".

The good news?

The body naturally seeks a steady state of balance and ease (or homeostasis).

It is designed to heal itself (if just given a chance).

When the body becomes imbalanced...

(when overwhelmed by environmental and psychoemotional toxins)...

Bioregulatory medicine looks at your body as a system - and asks where that system is burdened.

Heavy metal toxicity? Bacteria? Viruses? Parasites? Nutritional deficiencies? Stress?

We then support the body's intrinsic, self-regulating, self-healing mechanisms...

...with non-toxic approaches (so that we don't add to the body's burden).

We recognize the mind-body-spirit connection...

...and the energy or "life body" that is intrinsic to one's physical and mental health.

It is with great respect for the complexity of the human mind-body...

... that we seek to promote balanced and lasting wellbeing - physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Here's to another million years!

BIOREGULATORY

MEDICINE VS.

Bioregulatory medicine focuses on the cause(s) and treats the individual with a non-toxic (biologically oriented) multi-level approach.

CONVENTIONAL

MEDICINE

Conventional (allopathic) medicine focuses on the symptoms and treats the disorder with a pharmaceutical (chemically oriented) linear approach.

Recognizing that there is common ground, bioregulatory medicine does not seek to dismiss conventional allopathic medicine (especially when treating infectious disease or in the area of acute medicine). There are, however, fundamental differences in the “Weltanschauung” or philosophical views between the two.

Conventional allopathic medicine focuses on suppressing symptoms – labelling pathophysiological conditions (by their Latin names) according to symptomology. Bioregulatory medicine instead focuses on the root cause(s) underlying those symptoms.

Consider, for example, one of the most important biological processes: the body’s defense (immune) system. When stressed, injured or affected by toxins, the immune system, in trying to auto-correct the pathology, responds with inflammation. Conventional medicine would classify the condition according to its symptom (in Latin “itis” means “inflammation”), e.g., dermatitis (“inflammation of the skin”), tendonitis (“inflammation of the tendon”), and seek to suppress the manifesting symptom. Bioregulatory medicine would instead seek the root cause(s) of that inflammation – be it poor kidney function, food sensitivity, or problems at home (or a combination thereof).

Moreover, conventional allopathic medicine suppresses those symptoms via a pharmaceutical approach, using patented chemical agents that suppress the body’s regulatory mechanisms. Extensive pharmaceutical efforts have been made in developing powerful anti-agents against inflammation, against fever, against diarrhea, against cough, against insomnia, against life (“antibiotic”). Such drugs might reduce or suppress the symptom, but in so doing, they also reduce the immune system’s regulatory response to the toxic insult on the body, causing further dysregulation. In short, instead of improving the body’s defense mechanisms, many pharmaceuticals interfere with and lessen cellular immunity.

Whereas conventional medicine is primarily chemically oriented (relying on pharmaceuticals), bioregulatory medicine is biologically oriented, aiming to eliminate symptoms by activating and restoring the body’s own intrinsic healing mechanisms. The causative factors of illness (both physical and nonphysical) are addressed, using non-toxic treatments, such as nutrition and lifestyle improvements, exercise, nutritional supplementation, herbal approaches, psychoemotional therapies, oxidative therapy, light, sound, and frequency therapy, hyperthermia, acupuncture, and numerous other biologically oriented approaches.

Conventional allopathic medicine seeks simple, linear relationships between medicinal (chemical) agents and their desired effects. The more linear the relationship, the easier it is to measure, and therefore, the more “scientific” it is considered (within the allopathic paradigm). Bioregulatory medicine resists such reductionist thinking. Biological systems are complex and need to be examined – not in isolated pieces, but as a whole. Bioregulatory medicine, therefore, does not seek to isolate and treat a symptom, but instead, to treat the overall physical, mental and spiritual health of the patient.

In other words, conventional allopathic medicine treats disorders; those disorders are categorized via diagnostic code numbers for the administration of generalized (“cookie-cutter”) treatment modalities. Bioregulatory medicine treats individuals, taking into account each individual’s unique biochemical, energetic, structural, sociological, and/or psychoemotional patterns. Therapeutic protocols are individually tailored to resolve one’s unique set of causative factors. This is an integrated, multi-level approach (evaluating such factors as biochemical individuality, genomic propensity, and functional metabolic processes, together with bioenergetic testing and regulatory diagnostics).

One final note: bioregulatory medicine, a wholistic system of healthcare with a focus on natural biological remedies and therapies, is not to be confused with what the pharmaceutical industry is now marketing as “biological medicine”. While these pharmaceuticals may have originally been derived from biological sources (human, animal or microorganism), many of these drugs have since been altered (in order to be patented and marketable), rendering them foreign agents in the body, which may cause severe side effects and/or damage immunity and organ function. Because they are profitable to the pharmaceutical industry, these pharmaceuticals continue to be researched, manufactured, and marketed. The term biological medicine makes them sound natural and harmless, but they are not.
