How is the Biological Terrain Assessed?
Monitoring the Biological Terrain involves assessing the biological fluids of urine and saliva. These fluids have specific characteristics and contain certain levels of elements that are released by the cells. The Biological Terrain’s environment is important to transporting these elements to various locations and destinations throughout the body – through the blood, lymphatic fluid, saliva and urine. Measurement of specific factors within these fluids can offer a window into the biochemical functioning of the cells.
Urinalysis / saliva test for monitoring the Bio terrain are:
- oxidation / reduction
- electrolytes test
- Konesburg Adrenal test
- Obermeyers indican test / malabsorption
- parasite probability test
- heavy metal probability test
- Sulkowitz calcium test
Saliva pH Analysis
- PH acid challenge
- Hydrochloric acid assessment
- Pancreatic digestive enzyme assessment
- zinc deficiency taste test
- PH buffering system- ability to alkalinize high acid PH
- Iodine patch test- Thyroid assessment for iodine needs
- Home Barnes axillary(armpit) temperature test- thyroid optimal function test
- Orthostatic blood pressure test- Adrenal insufficiency
- Pupil test- testing for adrenal weakness
With this valuable information, a proper nutrition, stress management and detoxification program can be implemented to optimize and support healthy cellular function. Bio terrain testing offers actual time presentation of your present health status. It also allows us to see changes more rapidly than the standard blood test and makes this a better tool for monitoring treatment effectiveness.
Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it has successfully treated conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems, nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, infertility, Allergies, Asthma, Sinusitis, Headaches, TMJ, Back Pain, Dizziness, High Blood Pressure, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Addictions, Indigestion, Constipation, Sexual Dysfunction, Post-Operative Recovery.
In my practice I use both traditional and modern acupuncture methods. These methods include electrical stimulations, magnets, laser, and seeds. Each can be used to stimulate the acupuncture points to balance the meridian and micro systems. These methods have limited the need of using needles rendering the therapy painless.
I have been Certified Master of Auricular Acupuncture, A Certified Practitioner of Korean Hand Energetics, and Trained in 8 principles Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Elements acupuncture, Modern Bioenergetics Acupuncture, Japanese Hara diagnostics and Reflex Therapy, Reverse Imaging model for pain treatment and electro acupuncture. I combine the use of body acupuncture points as well the hand and ear microsystems to apply acupuncture care. This allows acupuncture therapy to be done at home for better results and cost effective care.
Acupuncture, electrical stimulation, lasers, cupping and moxibustion treatment are well known for treating pain effectively. Supporting treatment of underlying issues that block the healing process are also useful such as Herbs, Nutrition, homeopathy and Chinese Tuina Physical Therapy can accelerate pain relief and healing.

The Chinese medical theory expresses the importance of the emotional and spiritual connection to the body. Advanced Techniques of acupuncture therapy can address the 5 spirits.
The mind has 3 levels;
- Conscious mind is awareness of our experience and how we perceive it.
- Unconscious mind is the part of the mind that keeps our heart beating and we continue to breathe without thinking about it.
- The subconscious mind is where we stuff things when we don’t want to re-experience a thought or feeling.
The mind takes all its experiences and perceptions then stores them as memories. These memories are then used by your mind as a reference guide. These memories construct our perceptions about life and create how we react to things and from early age. We continue to react the same way and re-creating the same experiences. These perception created and stored can be accurate, partially accurate, or totally inaccurate altogether. The problem is that these patterns are created by this process maybe the source limiting your potential, the source of your health problems or recreating the very thing we have been trying to change.
Through increasing our awareness and understanding we can reframe our experiences releasing the old patterns and taking on new paradigms that open our lives and heart to greater potential. Techniques like Hypnosis, Thought Pattern Management, and Emotional Freedom Technique are effective processes. Energetic support such as Bach Flowers, Homeopathy and Gem elixirs have shown to have profound effects on this level of healing.
The most important functional systems that most people have issues with are:
- The Hypothalamus- Pituitary- Adrenal Axis (Stress Handling)
- Glycemic (Sugar) control
- Liver Detoxification (Chemical Heavy Metal Toxicity)
- Proper Digestion and Assimilation (HCL, Enzyme and Biliary deficiency)
- Immunity (Gut, Bronchial, Brain Barriers. Active Infections, Autoimmunity, Gut Flora and Microbiome).
- Improper Diet and Lifestyle.
All things in life has its own energy signature or resonance including or body and all it parts. Energetic Testing also known as Muscle Testing or Kinesiology is a method of assessment that challenges the body’s energies against environmental energies or influences.
First establish a healthy strong muscle with resistance then challenging a substance while placed on the body while testing the same muscle, if the muscle weakens this means that the substance weakens the body. It can also be used to test whether a substance / remedy strengthens or corrects the body by presenting a strong muscle test. The benefits of energetic testing are it can assess things no chemistry test of either urine or blood can assess.
I have years of training in many systems of energy testing including Vega Bio kinesiology, Nutritional Reflex Testing, and Morphogenic Field Testing. Energetic testing is a way to communicate with the body to uncover weakness and find the proper remedies needed to correct the body.
My approach to assessing structural imbalances is to listen careful to the history of the patient, observation, palpation and energetic testing.
When palpating I look for proper function and characteristics of the joints, connective tissues, strength of muscles.
Chi energy and blood flow in the Meridian pathways. Meridians known as the muscle channels can be assessed by Chinese medical diagnosis for improper flow or blocked energy affecting the muscular skeletal system.
Emotions can lock their way into tissues suppressing the healing, creating pain and tension until properly addressed.
Toxicity impacts the structure, nervous system and creates malabsorption of proper nutrition. Malnutrition from an improper diet can keep us from getting the vital building blocks for a strong structure.
Not all structural problems and pain are due to injuries many people have problems that have progressively worsened over time without recollection of an event. This means that we need to take consideration that imbalances can be due to bad postural habits, over use, metabolic imbalances, emotional imbalances or toxicity. It can be 1 or more of these factors contributing to the problem. The correct nutritional, herbal support, energetic medicine, acupuncture and body work will be very effective in most cases.
I started my training studying Asian physical therapies Acupressure, Shiatsu, Thai Massage, and Chinese Tuina. I have also had training in western approaches such as Myofacial release, cranial sacral therapy and vector point therapy. I provide acupuncture treatments to address pain and structural imbalances giving you a complete integrative program for correction and pain relieve.
