Asthma, sinusitis, hives, headaches, depression, chronic pain, bronchitis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, candida, bloating and gastric symptoms, colitis, PMS, infertility, menopausal symptoms, ear infections, ADD/ADHD, autism, eczema…The list seems never ending when one thinks about the many ways that food, environmental and chemical allergies and sensitivities can manifest themselves in our bodies.
It is estimated that more than 35 million people in the United States suffer from allergies and the number of children affected seems to be at epidemic proportions. Virtually any substance can cause an allergic reaction in certain people. The most common allergic substances include pollen, dust mites, animal dander, mold, insect venom, certain chemicals, medication (such as penicillin) and foods. The most common food offenders are dairy, peanuts and other nuts, fish and shellfish, eggs, wheat, and soy.
Allergies can be classified as “acute’ or “immediate” in which symptoms appear within seconds after exposure to an allergen or they can be “delayed”. “Delayed” reactions are very common with foods and can occur hours or even days after exposure to an allergen because the allergen is not the food itself but a by-product of the digestive process.
Even with all of the “advances” in modern medicine and technology, it seems as if our present health-care system is continuing to break down. Health care costs are on a continual rise, insurance coverage is declining, and patients are not feeling well. In fact, most of us are getting frustrated as we witness an increase in chronic health problems like cancer, asthma, chronic fatigue, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, etc. Now, more than ever, Americans are searching for answers that are not found in a drug, injections or with a surgical procedure.
“Alternative health-care” is what many Americans are turning to and according to recent statistical research, they are willing to pay more for it “out of pocket” than for traditional medical care. These alternatives to medicine include chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopathy, massage therapy, and nutritional therapy just to name a few. The common denominator with all of these approaches is that they try to get to the cause of “dis-ease” in an individual’s body, rather than just treat the obvious symptoms. For example, rather than give an individual with a food allergy that presents itself on the skin as hives an “anti-itch cream” and tell them not to eat that food anymore, why not try to find out how to naturally desensitize their system to that food so they can continue to eat it without getting hives?
BioSET (bioenergetic sensitivity and enzyme therapy) can do just that! BioSET was developed by Dr. Ellen Cutler and according to Dr. Cutler, BioSET consists of four branches of healing. The first branch is organ detoxification to remove toxins from specific organ systems. The second branch is bioenergetic testing which involves the use of a state-of-the-art computerized machine to evaluate for weaknesses in the functioning of the body and allergies. The third branch involves enzyme therapy which incorporates proper digestion, metabolic and nutritional analysis to improve digestion and dietary deficiencies. Lastly, the fourth branch involves the use of an allergy elimination technique that can permanently remove any allergy or sensitivity.
To understand how BioSET works, Dr. Cutler states that it is helpful to think of the body as an electromagnetic organism in which energy flows along invisible pathways called meridians, or channels. Essentially, an allergic response is caused when these pathways are blocked by the immune response to an allergen. BioSET actually unblocks these pathways, thus stopping the body’s violent immune response and desensitizing it to the allergies. The wonderful thing about BioSET is that it does not limit an individual’s food intake, it is painless (children actually enjoy their visits!) and it is a non-invasive alternative instead of continually treating allergies with medications or injections.
Dr. Joachim, a Chiropractic Physician for more than 17 years, has been trained by Dr. Cutler and he is currently the only physician in CT with advanced BioSET certification. Dr. Joachim’s experience with BioSET’s amazing results began when he was in search of a cure for eczema that was affecting Alana, a 15 month-old patient. Dr. Joachim realized that when Alana ate certain foods her eczema immediately flared up. Dr. Joachim did 5 BioSET treatments on Alana and the eczema was gone! Alana is now 7 ½ years old, has never had another spot of eczema on her body, and has never been limited in the foods she eats. Dr. Joachim was thrilled because this little girl is his youngest daughter! His success with Alana inspired Dr. Joachim to dedicate a large part of his chiropractic practice to helping other children and individuals benefit from the BioSET total health care system.
