What is BioSET™?
BioSET™ is an innovative system of healing that effectively prevents and treats health issues. Allergy treatment, nutrition, enzyme therapy, and detoxification are combined to remove stresses on the immune system and restore health and vitality.
Allergies as a cause of illness
An individual can be allergic to anything: foods, drinks, pharmaceutical drugs, herbs, vitamins, water, clothing, jewelry, chemicals, paint, silicone, latex, plastics, pollen, grasses, etc. Allergy symptoms can range from mild to debilitating reactions to life-threatening illnesses. Medical scientists are still researching to find the exact cause and nature of allergies. From a Western medical point of view, and allergy is an overreaction of the immune system.
In BioSET™, allergies are viewed from a holistic perspective based on Oriental Medical principles and defined in terms of the effect an allergic substance has on the energy flow in the body.
An allergy is a condition of unusual sensitivity of a person to one or more substances, which may be harmless to the majority of other individuals. In the allergic person, the allergic substance (known as an allergen) is viewed by the brain as a threat to the body’s well-being. When contact is made with an allergen, it causes blockages in the energy pathways called meridians, disrupting the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuits. This energy blockage causes interference in communication between the brain and body via the nervous system, which begins a chain of events that can develop into an allergic response.
Undiagnosed allergies are often the cause of common or chronic illnesses which when left untreated can become serious or critical. Through illness, pain, inflammation, headaches, fever, heart attacks, strokes, abnormal growths, tumors, and various physical, physiological and psychological discomforts, the brain signals the body about the possible dangers if the energy blockages remain within the body. The result of energy imbalances in the body leads to a diminished state of health in one or more organ system. By reprogramming the brain and removing the blockages from the energy pathways, the treatment allows the body to regain perfect balance (homeostasis) and function normally to reach optimum health.
How Does it work?
BioSET™ is a synthesis of various medical disciplines such as allopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic, kinesiology and nutrition. The technique utilizes Muscle Response Testing (MRT) which indicates the kinetic imbalance in the body caused by allergens. The BioSET™ treatment stimulates pressure points along the spine from the neck to the sacrum while the patient is holding an allergen. After the treatment, a strong MRT indicates that the allergy has been removed.
Specific acupressure points are then massaged or acupuncture needles may be inserted from 15 -20 minutes to stabilize the treatment. Allergens are treated and cleared one at a time in a specific sequence. A course of treatment often involves a minimum of 6 – 10 treatments. Individuals who are highly sensitive may sometimes require additional treatments.
Along with receiving the treatments, the patient will also be tested for toxicity and enzyme evaluation. These important tests provide valuable information about digestion, nutrient deficiencies and toxicity. A homeopathic formula or enzyme may be recommended to the patient.
The BioSET™ Technique is an innovative treatment for allergies that is completely natural, painless and non-invasive. This method can be used safely on anyone, from newborn infants to the elderly.
How can I get started ?
Schedule an appointment for the BioSET™ protocol. Your first session will involve both a consultation and treatment, which may take over an hour (follow-up treatments take approximately 30 minutes).
Be sure to bring a sample of any vitamin, herb, or medication you are presently taking. It is very important to test for sensitivities to items you take orally. Your first session will also involve a detoxification profile. Based on the information found, you may be placed on a homeopathic formula to help remove the toxic load from your body. This homeopathic course of treatment is normally 8 weeks; follow up testing is necessary to determine progress.
Depending on your individual condition, your acupuncturist may ask you to schedule an enzyme evaluation. This testing will provide valuable information concerning nutritional deficiencies and your ability to break down different food groups.
Often two treatments can be scheduled in one day, allowing a person who is traveling a great distance to receive numerous treatments over the course of a few days or week in order to quickly reduce reactions to allergens and food sensitivities.
More about BioSET™
BioSET™ was developed by Dr. Ellen Cutler, MD, DC, based on years of advanced study and clinical experience. Through extensive research, she has created a powerful integrated system of healing. These techniques are described in a series of books, including The Food Allergy Cure, and a video, Creating Wellness.
Dr. Ellen Cutler has trained acupuncturists at the clinic, in both the basic and advanced level. Each maintains certification in the BioSET™ technique.
