What is Biological Terrain?

In simple terms Biological Terrain can be equated to soil, like the soil in which a farmer grows his crops.  If the soil is too acidic or alkaline, or if there are not adequate minerals, water, sunshine, etc. healthy crops cannor grow.  However, if the crop does manage to develop, then it will be of inferior quality and highly susceptible to certain invading insects or disease producing entities.  On the other hand, when we alter the condition of the soil, we can then scientifically affect the vitality of the crop.  This concept as it relates to the internal environment of the body defines Biological Terrain.

 In 1959, Professor Louis Claud Vincent, a French hydrologist, researched, developed, and documented specific electrical values in body fluids such as saliva, blood, and urine that could accurately display the “soil values” for each living organism.  With these values we can assess the body’s tendency toward metabolic balance or imbalance and therefore its propensity for the manifestation of health or illness.  From this information we can see the direction in which the body’s chemistry and energetics must be altered in order to attain a balanced biochemical and bioenergetic equilibrium.  Specific symptoms or disease states are not the focus of Biological Terrain Assessment, but rather the environmental conditions and energetic propensities of ones cells, biochemistry, and electrodynamic fields.  In this way we can reach down to the core of a patients imbalance and affect health on these fundamental levels of life.

What we specifically learn from Biological Terrain Assessment and Bioenergetics?

– the tendency of acidity of the cells of the body and the tendency of compensating alkalinity.

– the tendency of the kidneys to excrete excess acids that are produced within the body and efficiently excrete toxins and waste.

– the tendency for hemoglobin to release less oxygen to the cells.

– the tendency to mineral deficiency or excess.

-amount of electrons present, and hence the potential for further chemical and enzymatic reactions and and ability of the cells to create energy efficiently.

– the tendency of the kidneys to hold onto electrons.

– the tendency for enough digestive enzymes to be present.

– the tendency of having enough or too many antioxidants present.

– the tendency to adrenal stress.

– the tendency for inflammation to be present.

– the tendency to bowel ecology imbalance.

– the tendency to a hyper-sympathetic nervous system

– the tendency to lymphatic congestion and accumulation of toxic debris.

– the tendency to resist bacterial, viral, and fungal overgrowth.

– how to evaluate, monitor, and adjust a given intervention over time.

Why we measure the Biological and Bioenergetic Terrain

Most patients consider themselves perfectly health as long as they have no symptoms.  It is important to keep in mind that in the progression from health to chronic disease, symptoms are the last step in the progression.  Conversely, in the regression of a disease, symptoms are often the the first thing to disappear.  Therefore, the disappearance of symptoms is only the first step in the healing process.  For this reason symptoms are many times a poor standard in which to judge overall health.

Generally, when we develop a specific set of symptoms, we consider ourselves healthy again as soon as the symptoms are gone.  We can hardly blame ourselves for thinking this way.  Medical advertising is primarily geared to symptom-alleviating drugs.  We have all been trained to believe that symptoms are the problem and that eradication of the symptoms alone indicates health.

Measuring the Biological Terrain and Assessing this information in relation to the Bioenergetics of the body can give us a picture of our health that goes much deeper than symptomatology.  Imbalances in terrain conditions precede disease states.  Adjusting these terrain conditions helps the body utilize its self correcting, self healing mechanisms much more efficiently.

How we adjust and fine-tune the Biological and Bioenergetic Terrain

Through lifestyle changes, acupuncture, nutritional, dietary, herbal, homeopathic, and other natural energetic interventions we can support and correct bioenergetic imbalances and cellular information exchange within the body.  These applications, when successful, translate into improvement in the environmental conditions and electrodynamic fields of the body.  With improvements in the body’s terrain we can help achieve optimal health and function.
