WHAT IS BIOREGULATORY MEDICINE?

By definition, bioregulation is the regulation of biological processes in the body (Smit, 2009). Bioregulatory medicine involves the use of therapeutics to regulate these biological processes in times of illness. As presented on the website of Canadian Society of Bioregulatory Medicine, Bioregulatory Medicine is an integrative and advanced form of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) which aims at initiating and sustaining healing. Bioregulatory Medicine involves an interdisciplinary approach to medicine that integrates ancient healing wisdom with contemporary medical science. The result is a comprehensive, human and modern form of Integral Health System, which can complement existing medical approaches.

Bioregulatory Medicine takes into consideration techniques that can induce a self-regulatory reaction in our innate healing mechanisms. Bioregulatory Medicine attempts to influence the body indirectly, using medicinal stimulants, so that the body’s own regulatory process can restore the disruptive functions back to normal, with minimal side effects, and therefore encourage healing and health.

Bioregulatory Medicine is not a new fad that has suddenly appeared on the scene, but an evolution of scientific investigation focused on natural healing techniques. It represents a marriage between the natural healing mechanisms of the body and the medicines and techniques that all health care professionals seek to optimize. Any therapy or therapeutic approach that encourages the body’s homeostasis and self-regulatory mechanisms to work again and/or work better is a bioregulatory medical approach.

Much therapeutics used by integrative doctors help the body regulates the natural processes of healing. They include vitamins, minerals, homeopathy, homotoxicology, acupuncture and herbal medicine. Conventional pharmaceutical medicines mainly reduce symptoms rather than helping the body heal itself. Natural substances are the best way to help the body regulate its healing processes and re-establish normal feedback systems. Bioregulatory Medicine utilizes ingredients which are diluted and/or delivered in micro-doses, which differs drastically from the more common practice of herbs, tinctures, or orthomolecular medicine. While treating with a vitamin or supplement can be very effective and necessary, it does react with the body differently than when using the Bioregulatory Medicine approach.

The most important biological process is the defense system or immune system. Very few pharmaceutical medicines improve the immune system. When affected by toxins, the immune system responds with inflammation. Most symptoms arise from the immune system trying to correct the pathology. Drugs, such as “anti-inflammatory medicines”, attempt to reduce the inflammation symptoms. By reducing or suppressing the inflammation process, these medicines reduce the immune system’s response to the insult on the body.

A good example is how the immune system responds to an upper respiratory viral infection. The symptoms are fever (anti-viral response), increased nasal discharges (attempt to expel the virus and increase immune cells in the area of invasion), sneezing and coughing (to expel the virus and prevent its deeper invasion). All these symptoms are good immune responses. When a practitioner will prescribe medicines to reduce fever (which is the immune system’s natural anti-viral response), antihistamine medicines (to reduce nasal discharges and sneezing – which allows the virus to penetrate deeper) and anti-tussive medicines (to reduce coughing – which also allows the virus to penetrate deeper) the patient feels better during the illness because of the symptoms reduction. However, the drugs may actually push the disease deeper, causing the patient to need more drugs for possible viral or bacterial bronchitis or pneumonia. Because the immune system may be weakened, the upper respiratory infection can recur and even deeper illnesses can occur.

Many practitioners of integrative medicine would treat this patient with bioregulatory medicine. This promotes a stronger immune response to shorten the disease process and to support, rather than reduce, the immune response to the illness. When we can maximize the potential for disarming invaders (immune system) and regulating physiologic feedback systems, we vastly improve the chances that our patients can live a long life of full health, with quick recovery from acute incidents.

A LOOK AT HOMOTOXICOLOGY

Although micro-dosing therapy is usually associated with classical homeopathy, there has been an introduction of many forms of micro-dosing approaches. The range of remedies are the result of the nineteenth century classical homoeopathy teachings of Dr. Hahnemann (1755-1843), followed by a medical model of Dr. Reckeweg (1905-1985) who had established the principles of the anti-homotoxic prescription to the advancements of Dr. Enderlein (1872 – 1968) who promoted the concept of pleomorphism and use of dark field microscopy.

Homotoxicology is one of the primary therapies used homeopathic medicines in formulas to address symptoms, promote detoxification/drainage, and support organ/cellular function. Dr. Hans Heinrich Reckeweg spent his life in the pursuit of uniting the art of homeopathy with the science of allopathy, to address the increasing number of multidimensional diseases and deep-seated chronic illnesses we are now seeing. In doing so, he engaged the known principles of both disciplines to trace and heal the disease and flow of biological systems. As the patient goes through the process of illness and then recovery the symptoms can provide information on the journey. By incorporating the concepts developed by Dr. Constantine Hering (Hering’s Law) and those observed by Dr. Hans Heinrich Reckeweg (vicariation) it is possible to monitor the progress of the patient for better or for worse. In fact Dr. Reckeweg created a two dimensional matrix to represent the stages of this has been developed into the Disease Evolution Table which describes the phases of disease.

Homotoxicology therapy addresses the whole pathology of an ill patient. It promotes self-healing, reduces and eliminates toxins, promotes organ and cellular function and supports a strong immune system. Homotoxicology is truly a holistic medicine to treat the whole patient, not just the symptoms. One of the advantages of this modality is that the formulas have such broad and deep activity. Even a superficial knowledge of the combinations will produce startlingly good results.

More recently a contemporary generation of medical practitioners has further advanced these homeopathic traditions, by adding rebalancing bioactive molecules such as cytokine and interleukins. As classical homeopathy has adapted to our modern world and has evolved into complex and modern homeopathy practitioners now have access to a diverse range of bioregulatory approaches from the classical therapy system (single homeopathics, tissue salts, gemmotherapy, flowers and tree essences) to the more complex preparations (SanumIsopathic Medicine, Anti-homotoxic Medicine, Physiological Regulating Medicine and others). Most effective remedies are those in very subtle doses that stimulate and support the body rather than interfere and replace or inhibit bodily functions. This follows the Arndt-Schulz Rule which states that small doses of a substance stimulate, moderate doses inhibit and large doses stop or kill the physiological process.

Within Bioregulatory Medicine there are a variety of approaches or philosophies on how to choose a remedy and even how to create the combinations and dilutions of ingredients within a complex remedy. However, there is an appreciation and understanding of the Burgi’s Principle which states that the effect of two substances that lead to the same change in function or remove the same symptoms adds up when they have the same and amplify when they have different pharmacological target points. In other words the same remedy in different potencies can become more effective than a single potency.

THE 6 PHASES OF PATHOLOGY

  1. Excretion Phase
  2. Inflammation Phase
  3. Deposition Phase
  4. Impregnation Phase
  5. Degeneration Phase
  6. Dedifferentiation Phase

 

Bioregulatory Medicine works with the body’s regulation systems to achieve the optimal state of homeostasis. The body already has systems which ‘auto’regulate the body constantly as the body is constantly reacting to changes in environment, foods, emotions, activities. The work done by Alfred Pischinger on the Ground Regulation System (GRS) has introduced to the world the concept that the space between the cells plays an important role in regulating the body. The importance of the Extra Cellular Matrix and its involvement in disease evolution is a key differentiator in what sets Bioregulatory Medicine apart from other forms of medicine.

It is possible to clean this Extra Cellular Matrix (through drainage and detoxification) using various remedies and techniques. In fact it is widely agreed that inflammation is one of the signs that the body is trying to remove the antigens and toxins from the body. Bioregulatory Medicine seeks to encourage the natural detoxification process and avoid blocking the inflammation whenever possible.

“Classical medicine, conventional or allopathic medicine, seeks to influence the chemical processes of our body with chemical substances in order to block or transform the processes which cause illness, which is often reflected in the patient suddenly feeling better, but with the risk of side effects/iatrogenic states. Bioregulatory Medicine attempts to influence the body obliquely, using medicinal stimulants, so that the body’s own regulatory process put it into a position, or back into a position where they can restore the disruptive functions back to normal, with minimal side effects, and hence induce healing and health”.-Prof. Michael F. Kirkman, MD

WHAT IS RUBIMED?

DrReinmarBanis , German physician and researcher, brings a new understanding to the concept of sickness and health with the revolutionary healing modality of Rubimed.  Rubimed provides a modern complementary medicine approach to address emotional issues and their related physical and emotional conditions.

DrBanis has taken centuries –old chakra and aura theories and put them into the modern day context of biophysics, homeopathy and psychology. The combination of Eastern energy medicine with modern science led to establishment of Psychosomatic Energetics (psycho=mind, soma=body) and the development of the Rubimed remedies.

It is common in clinical practice to see patients, who feel tired, irritable, and no longer at their peak performance. The usual mainstream medical examinations often show no specific cause or diagnosis for those types of symptoms. Illness is associated with a reduced flow of energy, due to emotional trauma witch was not fully processed, thereby become repressed into the subconscious and stored in the human subtle energy field as an emotional conflict. Unresolved, these deeply unconscious emotional conflicts lead to an energetic block and a reduced flow of energy that weakens the body and contributes to physical, mental and /or emotional disorders.

Research in psychoneuroimmunology and psychoendocrinology indicate that psychosomatic stressors can lead to:

  • Endocrine dysfunctions
  • A weakened immune system
  • Inflammatory reactions
  • Disease processes

Dr Banis’s experience shows it is often not enough to bring these issues into conscious awareness through psychotherapy, but rather need to be resolved in the body’s subtle energy field. Therefore, a return to health can be achieved through resolving the emotional conflict on the subtle energy level using energetic medicine.

Within the foundation of PSE, Rubimed therapy is the key restorative tool for healing illness and disorders resulting from past emotional trauma. Rubimed therapy entails a systematic approach using applied kinesiology testing methods and the REBA device to determine the active emotional conflict and appropriate remedies for its resolution. The Rubimed remedies include the Chavita remedies for the autonomic nervous centers (chakras) with their corresponding Emvita remedies the emotional conflicts. The Chavita and the Emvita remedies are usually prescribed in pairs. In addition, there are acute remedies for geopathy, autonomic dysfunction, anxiety and nervous tension.

The REBA device is uses a poly frequency spectrum to measure an individual’s energy levels, with these readings corresponding to physical, emotional, mental and causal states of health. Additionally, the REBA device is a versatile tool that can also be used for testing of: organs, food sensitivities, dysbiosis, focal infections, metabolic and autonomic dysfunctions and milieu stresses. It is also beneficial for testing compatibility and effectiveness of other remedies, including supplements and pharmaceuticals.

From Yoga-Traditions four energy levels are known. They correspond to the four frequency ranges of the brain currents (EEG) : the etheric- or Vitaly-level corresponds to the Delta-frequencies (1-3.5 Hz) of Trance and deep sleep, the emotional-layer to the Theta-Frequencies (3.5-7 Hz) where dreams and fantasies occur, the Mental-layer to the Alphafrequencies (7-14 Hz), which can be found during relaxed attention, the causal-plane to the Betafrequencies (14-30 Hz), which are symptoms of a very active and stressed brain with very high activity and arousal.The Reba-Test device produces resonance effects with the four energy levels of the patient. The more a certain layer is blocked (typically caused by subconscious emotional conflicts) the smaller becomes the range of the frequencies which can be measured. The total range of the blocked layer shrinks. During the ongoing of the healing process the range gets normal again.

For over two decades, Rubimed therapy has been used worldwide, with thousands of practitioners utilizing this healing method in Europe. Introduced to North America over 10 years ago, Rubimed has become and essential tool in complementary medicine practices to resolve depleting energetic influences and initiate a holistic self-healing process.
