How BIE can help with environmental stressors
Updated: Mar 10
Spring is now here!
For some of us, spring means enjoying longer periods of sunshine and the sight of daffodils. For others, spring means having watery eyes, itchy skin, and a runny nose.
So, why is it that some people react to things like pollen, grasses and ragweed during the spring and summer seasons, and others don’t?
A reason is simply that one person’s body recognizes these substances (stressors) as “harmful” and the other person’s body recognizes these substances as “unharmful.” It is thought that when we experience a stressful event, our bodies can identify a substance that it is exposed to during the event as the culprit of that stress. As such, when the body is exposed to the substance in the future, the body thinks it’s “harmful” and reacts in a particular way, giving rise to certain symptoms like watery eyes, itchy skin and runny nose. This explains, in part, why some people never had issues when they were younger, and now, they have certain intolerances.
So, how can you get your body to see pollen, grass and ragweed as “unharmful”?
How BIE works to help your body respond to environmental stressors
In order for your body to stop reacting inappropriately to a substance, it needs to be re-educated on the proper identity of that substance. This is done by introducing the body to the frequency of the substance, using a language that the body knows - electrical signalling.
BIE stands for BioEnergetics Intolerance Elimination. It is a safe, non-invasive technology that serves to “re-educate” the body on the identity of a particular substance. It does this by using a device to direct the electromagnetic frequency of a particular substance, such as pollen, to the body (without the use of any drugs or needles). When this occurs, the body relearns the identity of the substance and no longer sees the substance as “harmful” or threatening. As a result, the body knows how to respond appropriately, alleviating the person of their associated symptoms.
Let’s look at an analogy. In a circle of friends, there is always that one friend, who is the peacemaker, the mediator of the group. We will call this friend Lucy. Last year, you and Susan had a huge falling out. Ever since the incident with Susan, just hearing Susan’s name gets you a little riled up. Lucy finally gets you and Susan together to talk. You both talk it through and you realize that it was just a simple misunderstanding. Now, you and
Susan are best friends again. In this analogy, Susan is the perceived “harmful” substance and Lucy is the BIE technology.
Benefits of using BIE to help your body better respond to environmental stressors
The best part about using BIE is that it can address the underlying cause of your intolerance. It trains the body so that it can respond appropriately upon exposure to a particular substance. This is far better than depending on medications like antihistamines, which serve only to temporarily address the symptoms (as opposed to the cause). While immediate alleviation of symptoms is great, using medications comes at a cost, and sometimes a hefty one. Most, if not all, medications have side effects. It has been shown that some side effects of antihistamines range from cognitive impairment(1) to increased risk of developing dementia(2).
