Over half of the world's population is afflicted with some form of chronic or degenerative illness. Heart disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes, neurological conditions, cancer, Lyme disease--the list goes on. The conventional, allopathic, treat-the-symptom-with-pharmaceutical-drugs model is rapidly falling out of favor as patients are searching for nontoxic, advanced prevention and healing modalities that actually work. Bioregulatory Medicine introduces a model that has proven effective for decades in other more forward-thinking developed countries, including Switzerland and Germany.
Our bodies have many bioregulating systems, including the cardiovascular, digestive, neurological, respiratory, endocrine, and so on. Bioregulatory medicine is a comprehensive and holistic approach to health that advocates the use of natural healing methods to support and restore the body's intrinsic self-regulating and self-healing mechanisms, as opposed to simply treating symptoms with integrative therapies. Bioregulatory medicine is about discovering the root cause of disease and takes into account the entire person from a genetic, epigenetic, metabolic, energetic, and emotional point of view. So while patients may have the same disease or prognosis, the manifestation of illness is entirely bioindividual and must be treated and prevented on an individual level.
Bioregulatory Medicine addresses the four pillars of health--drainage and detox, diet, mind-body medicine, and oral health--using a sophisticated synthesis of the very best natural medicine with modern advances in technology. In addition to identifying the cause of disease, bioregulatory medicine promotes disease prevention and early intervention of illness through noninvasive diagnostics and treatments, and incorporates the use of over 100 different non-toxic diagnostics and treatments from around the world.
Forward-thinking patients and integrative practitioners will find Bioregulatory Medicine invaluable as they seek to deepen their understanding of the body's many regulating systems and innate ability to heal itself.

"Sick has become the new normal as the numbers of chronically ill adults and children is ever-increasing, and patient frustration mounts as Western medicine fails to address chronic health challenges. Bioregulatory Medicine offers a clear and concise map on how to understand the holistic model of integrative health practice via a unified mind and body approach while supporting the individual's biology to self-regulate and regenerate. This evidence-based book takes the reader on a journey to understand how to implement a systems-focused approach to healing. This concise review is an excellent book for patients wanting to get healthy based on time-tested methods as well as for health practitioners looking to expand their own practice treatment modalities."--Michelle Perro, MD, author of What's Making Our Children Sick?
"I sincerely hope that the future of medicine looks much more like the approach outlined so expertly in Bioregulatory Medicine. Imagine a world in which each person's individuality drives the approach to treatment and good health doesn't simply mean not having any disease, but rather 'an optimized state of balance that permits a person to achieve their ultimate or highest purpose.' Luckily, this type of health care is already being practiced by doctors all over the world, and this easy-to-digest guide will open this whole world to you."--J.B. Handley, author of How to End the Autism Epidemic
"This small book captures so many important ideas about sustainable, biologically based medicine. Its wisdom is palpable, and its science believable. To my many colleagues who, like myself, were steeped in the sciences during medical school but became disillusioned once we hit the clinical years, there is hope. This book shows us where we left our roots, which were deeply embedded in an understanding of our amazing human physiology, its intricate biochemistry, and its awe inspiring anatomy which serve as the scaffolding for each miracle of life. Bioregulatory Medicine is a refreshing look at what matters in medicine and how we can work with the human body, not against it, and without fear. We are all a complex integrated system of body-mind-spirit and, I might add, a community. Each of us is unique, each person has their own presentation and history. Thank you to all the authors who help us see what we share in common and embolden us to better care for ourselves and each other."--Heather Tallman Ruhm, MD, medical director of the Biomed Center NE
Foreword, Starred Review--
"The authors bring a multifaceted wealth of experience and expertise that equips people with the background knowledge and practical understanding to change the way they think and reap the rewards. The array of authors makes the book a complete tapestry rather than a single thread. The wisdom of the book is applicable to many medical issues.
Bioregulatory Medicine puts the patient's needs and benefit back at the heart of health care."
