Developed by Ellen Cutler, DC based on more than 25 years of research, the BioSet (BioEnergetic Sensitivity and Enzyme Therapy) program is a way of getting to the root cause of food sensitivities that can trigger a host of other health problems. The fundamental insight behind Cutler’s program is that digestive health is linked to the performance of the body’s immune system. Dr. Cutler and others who use BioSET believe that when a person eats foods that he or she is sensitive to, it disturbs the digestive system, which in turn stresses the immune system. This then causes a cascade of additional sensitivities and illnesses. The three-part BioSet program is specifically designed to alleviate conditions such as allergies, asthma, fibromyalgia and more.
The BioSet program consists of three basic parts: detoxification, enzyme therapy and desensitization. The program’s organ-specific detoxification promotes the release of accumulated toxins from organs and tissues and stimulates the body to eliminate them through the use of homeopathy. The enzyme therapy aspect encourages optimal digestion and the development of a healthy inflammatory response through the therapeutic use of vegetarian enzyme supplements. Finally, desensitization is achieved through the use of a noninvasive technique based on acupressure meridians and immunology.
Detoxification is important, since we are exposed to toxins on a daily basis in our environment, in the foods we eat and from the medications we take. These can build up over time, overwhelming the body’s natural toxin elimination system (the skin, liver, kidneys and lymphatic system), causing the body to develop chronic health problems. An electrodermal screening technique or muscle testing will be used to determine the toxicities that are specific to you, and an herbal or homeopathic remedy will be prescribed to help your body eliminate these toxins.
The BioSet program uses enzyme therapy to help the body properly break down the food you eat. When the body does not fully digest the food it receives, undigested particles can get passed into the blood stream where they are recognized as a foreign invader, causing the body‘s immune response to come into play, triggering allergies and other autoimmune disorders. Another enzyme acts as a natural antibiotic, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal treatment to eliminate harmful pathogens from the digestive system. A third enzyme is used as a probiotic to encourage the growth of helpful bacteria in the digestive tract.
Finally, in the desensitization stage of the BioSet program, acupressure is performed to eliminate energy blockages along the body’s meridians. The electromagnetic energy that flows along these meridians must move freely in order for the body to function optimally. This type of therapy has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. The desensitization technique releases energy blockages, corrects any imbalances and resets the nervous and immune systems to perform at their best.
For anyone suffering from allergies or other chronic illness, it may be worth giving the BioSet program a try. It is a natural, noninvasive form of therapy that can be used by adults and children alike.
