Individualized/Informational Body-Mind Therapy (iBMT)
The unique nature of the Highly Sensitive Body is the presence of an energetically chaotic stage. This outside layer of the disease is characterized by high inflammation, high toxins and high allergic and autoimmune responses. The energetic system is so chaotic that many energetic pathways are blocked and the immune system is attacking the bodyÃ¢??s own organ, tissue and regulatory system as well as many nutrients and enzymes. Without solving the initial layer of the disease, the bodyÃ¢??s overall function can not reach to an optimal condition and any type of therapies may not have an optimal result. Especially if the detox pathway is blocked, any detoxification therapy will lead to more chaotic responses. The patient may show server adverse reaction (detox response) to the therapy as well.
The timing and sequence of the therapies are very important to treat the Highly Sensitive Body. Therefore, a three-stage multilayered energetic program, Individualized/Informational Body-Mind Therapy (iBMT), is proposed to improve clinical efficacy for natural therapies. Every time if the practitioner tries to rash the healing process or the patient tries to push the therapy faster, the end result is always not optimal. Thus learning how to follow the sequence of the healing and not to rash at any time is very important to treat the Highly Sensitive Body.
The characteristics of the iBMT are:
Introducing timing concept to healing process and proposing the three stages of healing
Emphasizing the initial chaotic layer of disease for the Highly Sensitive Body
Utilizing synergetic effect from different energetic and natural therapies such as homeopathy, Chinese medicine, immune system reprogramming technique, flower essences, EFT, enzyme therapy and nutritional supplementation
Applying remedies precisely with the help of Electrodermal Screening technique
Many natural and energetic therapies help the body by tapping into bodyÃ¢??s information and controlling system and signaling the body to heal. HSB responds to these energetic therapies well but also develops resistance to specific remedy or therapy easily. Clinically it has been observed that each remedy or therapy has only a short window to work. Initially the patient feels better with the remedy and it quits working after a while. During the short window of time, the body develops some resistance to the remedy, while the therapy is not enough to help the body get out of the chaotic stage and it falls back to the chaos right after the remedy quits working. On the other hand, a combination of different modalities such as homeopathy, herbal medicine, enzyme therapy, flower essences, nutritional supplementation, immune system reprogramming and acupuncture always works better than a single modality. The synergetic effect of different modalities pushes the Highly Sensitive Body out of its chaotic stage quickly before the resistance is developed. Timing is crucial in this case. Once the body is out of the chaotic stage, the meridian balance will return to normal and the healing ability is re-achieved. No matter what disease you have as long as it involves immune and toxins, iBMT is a good start. It focuses on stabilizing immune system and restoring healing ability. After iBMT, all other therapies will work better. (Please contact us for detailed procedure of iBMT)
Immune System Reprogramming (ISR):
ISR is a modified acupressure procedure to help the body reprogram immune functions, unblock metabolic and detox pathways and desensitize allergy and sensitivities.
Homeopathy is a three-hundred-year-old European healing system treating diseases with highly diluted (potentized) herbs, mineral and other chemicals.
Electrodermal Screening (EDS)
EDS is a computerized skin conductivity testing. It detects skin conductivity changes on acupuncture points to identify the energetic balance and blockage of the body.
Enzyme Therapy uses purified plant enzymes to help a variety of conditions. The most commonly treated conditions are indigestion and food intolerance.
Energetic Emotional Therapy
Energetic Emotional Therapies help psychological issues with energetic approach. The common therapies include Bach Flower Essences and Emotional Freedom Therapy.
Natural Hormonal Therapy
Treating hormonal imbalance naturally is one of the major goals in our practice. We will do everything we can to balance hormones without using any types of hormonal replacement.
Amino Acid and Neurotransmitter Therapy
Many psychological and neurological diseases are caused by neurotransmitter imbalance. Amino acids are building blocks of many neurotransmitters. Digestion and absorption of amino acids as well as intestinal health play a major role in neurotransmitter balance.
