Bioregulatory medicine is the study of the regulation of biological processes in the human body. It involves the use of natural remedies and therapeutics to regulate biological processes, especially when a person is suffering from an infection or is otherwise ill.
Many natural therapeutics help the body regulate the natural process of healing. They include acupuncture, homeopathy, vitamins, minerals, and herbal medicines.
Practitioners of bioregulatory medicine believe that conventional medicine reduces symptoms of illness rather than helps the body heal naturally. Natural substances and remedies are the best way to help the body boost its natural healing processes and re-establish normal feedback systems.
The most important biological process of the body is the operation of the natural immune system. The human body tends to respond to a viral attack with inflammation. Common symptoms of illness exhibited by the body stem from the body’s immune system trying to correct that reaction.
Modern medicines tend to try and minimize these symptoms by suppressing the inflammatory response – not by attacking the actual virus. By reducing or suppressing the inflammation process, these medicines can decrease the efficiency of the immune system’s response to the attack on the body.
The human immune system responds to an upper respiratory viral infection with fever, runny noses, sneezing, and coughing. Most modern medicines tout their effectiveness at reducing or eliminating these responses.
We may be getting it wrong…
But these responses are the body’s natural defense system hard at work. Fevers are an antiviral response. A runny nose is an attempt to expel the virus from the body and increase the number of immune cells around the virus. Sneezing and coughing are also attempts to expel the virus, as well as attempts to prevent deeper invasion.
Antihistamines and antitussive medicines, which are commonly prescribed to reduce nasal discharges, coughing, and sneezing, are effective at symptom reduction and making the patient feel better in the short term. But these drugs may push the virus deeper into the body causing patients to need more drugs. Because the immune system may be weakened, the infection can recur and more serious illnesses such as bronchitis or pneumonia can develop.
Getting back on track…
Bioregulatory medicine treats the patient with natural herbicides and remedies. This promotes a stronger immune response, which shortens the infection time, and bolsters – rather than suppresses – the body’s natural immune response to illness.
Maximizing the body’s immune system potency and bolstering the feedback systems vastly improves the chances patients recover quickly from common infections and more serious ones as well.
Some common bioregulatory medicine treatments are:
- PEMF Therapy. Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Frequency stimulates natural healing processes in the body. It helps to improve circulation and sleep quality, and has even been used by NASA to help combat muscle atrophy in astronauts.
- Negative Ion Therapy. Positive ions found in many things in life, such as cell phones and fluorescent lights, are believed to be “energy drainers.” Proximity to these elements can result in irritability and tension. Negative ions, which are found in natural sources such as natural settings, create positive moods. Negative ion therapy is very useful therapy for the person who spends a lot of time in front of a computer screen.
