The Fluoride Deception


What is Bioenergetics?

‘Bio-Energetics’ as it is currently used today is loosely defined to include a number of different ‘energy medicine’ and ‘hands on’ modalities, used to assist people toward optimal health & well-being. It has come to our attention that this term is also widely used to define several other disciplines, some far removed from the work we do, but, for our purposes, we are referencing the subtle, very low energy that functions as a signalling mechanism for our body’s processes.

Every cell in our body is ‘linked’ to every other cell via this energy. Cellular life is sustained by tightly regulating the functions of the cell’s physiologic systems. Through a process known as electro-conformational coupling, resonant vibrational energy fields can alter the balance of charges in a protein. In a harmonic energy field, receptors will change their conformation. Consequently, membrane receptors respond to both physical and energetic environmental information.

The body could be compared to a machine, in that it is made of many different, important parts that require forms of energy to function. In a man-made machine, the energy usually comes in the form of electricity that travels from an outside source like a wall outlet, through circuitry we call wiring, to the different parts that make the machine function. The human body differs from the man-made machine in that it generates its own energy from inside, but is similar in that the electrical energy travels through circuitry called ‘meridians’ to the different parts of the body we call organs.

If there is anything wrong with the circuitry or important parts of a man-made machine it will not function properly, and sometimes, not at all. The body is similar in that if there is something wrong with the meridians or attached organs they are wired to, then the body won’t function properly. When this occurs in the human body, the person either doesn’t feel well or may have disease which could threaten the body’s ability to continue to function.

Our testing procedures can also supplement other steps by your doctor to help better understand whether your health is being affected by sensitivities to a very wide range of substances from foods to certain things in the environment. This form of testing includes the ability to determine whether you are incompatible with any medicines or supplements you may be taking.

Finally, this vital energy analysis can be a key step in the overall protocol for selecting homotoxicology remedies that may be used in place of pharmaceutical drugs to treat illness.

What is Your Health Worth to You?

Is it Worth Taking Responsibility for It??

Health is a term which represents the quality and balance of your mind, body & spirit. All the parts which make the whole need to be addressed. You ask how?, what does it mean?

The Ancient Master of Taoism Lao Tzu teaches: “The journey of 1,000 miles, begins with one step at a time”

So let us begin with baby steps, on your road to optimal health, naturally through the miracle of lifestyle changes.


Everyone is affected by toxins. It can be from the environment, the foods, the water, and even from toxic relationships.

Begin by cleaning the gastro intestinal system. More than 70% of the immune system receptors are in “the gut”. When the GI system is out of balance it manifests in many of the symptoms and diagnoses that we see daily; diabetes, hypertension, fibromyalgia, arthritis, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, cancer and many others.

Through the Institute of Functional Medicine we follow the “5 Rs”

1. Remove

Remove stressors: get rid of things that negatively affect the environment of the GI tract including allergic foods and parasites or other bad bugs such as bacteria or yeast. This might involve using an allergy “elimination diet”.

2. Replace

Replace digestive secretions: add back things like digestive enzymes, hydrochloric acid, and bile acids that are required for proper digestion and that may be compromised by diet, drugs, diseases, aging, or other factors.

3. Reinoculate

Help beneficial bacteria flourish by ingesting probiotic foods or supplements that contain the so-called “good” GI bacteria such as bifidobacteria and lactobacillus species, and by consuming the high soluble fiber foods that good bugs like to eat, called “prebiotics.” Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms found in the gut that are also called “friendly bacteria.” Use of antibiotics kills both good and bad bacteria.

4. Repair

Help the lining of the GI tract repair itself by supplying key nutrients that can often be in short supply in a disease state, such as zinc, antioxidants (e.g. vitamins A, C, and E), fish oil, and the amino acid glutamine.

5. Rebalance

Pay attention to lifestyle choices – sleep, exercise and stress can all affect the GI tract.


Eliminate the most popular allergens: Dairy, wheat, gluten, simple sugars, artificial sweeteners.

Eat more vegetables, fruits and clean animal protein. Organics whenever possible and follow a protocol of proper nutraceuticals. The Core Balance Diet book brings forth the study of nutrigenomics, which teaches how nutrients and lifestyle choices interact with genes and influence cellular activities. This is why scientists say: “you are what you eat”. Now there is increasing evidence that your feelings also release biochemicals that influence. So it’s also accurate to say: “you are what you think and feel”.

Stress Management

1. Identify Sources of stress.

Prolonged stress may lead to exhaustion of your adrenal glands, which play a critical role in helping you to deal with stress. Adrenal exhaustion becomes a vicious cycle that includes depression, fatigue, feelings of anxiety, and lowered resistance to illness. It is in your best interest to prevent adrenal exhaustion from occurring by developing healthy stress-management techniques.

2. Decide how to change the way that you handle it. You have a choice to handle your stress, or have the stress handle you.


Explore and find forms of exercise that motivate you.

Critical is to begin with stretches. Next, look at different cardio programs like: walking, cycling, swimming might be some to consider. Follow with toning and strengthening. Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Yoga, and Pilates are some examples for combining the above.

Spirit Nutrition

Many people focus on feeding the body, while starving the spirit. Connect with the belief in something greater than yourself, nurture this and you’ll have a better chance of staying healthy longer and healing faster if you become ill. Use any tools that motivate you. Whether its through meditation, prayer, soft music, or connecting with nature. Feed your spirit.

If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much,we will have found the safest way to health.” ~Hippocrates Circa 400BC
