What is it?
It is the main system of medicine I learned from my homeopathic mentor, Dr. Gerard Gueniot, MD.
It is one of the deepest ways to heal – by eliminating cellular toxins so that the original blueprint pattern of health is restored by the innate Healing Power of Nature.
What it looks like is taking alternating homeopathic remedies or homeopathic Unda numbered compounds daily for an extended time, usually in 3 month cycles.
Sounds Familiar . . .
I have written about this before in an article “Power vs Force in Detoxification.”
I had the honor of writing about Biotherapeutic Drainage for Seroyal and the website they have just published www.biotherapeuticdrainage.com
I will distill it again for you here.
How Does the Body Rid itself of Toxins?
Normal physiological function is capable of removing all waste products produced by the body as a by-product of normal metabolism plus any accumulated wastes acquired from the outside.
All cells produce metabolic waste, and they are discharged into the blood stream. These metabolic wastes, or toxins, pass through the liver and are filtered out, and the liver metabolizes them to a form which can be eliminated.
The natural routes of elimination are
- Sweating through the skin
- Solid waste through the intestines
- Liquid waste through the kidney and urinary bladder
- Gaseous waste through the lungs
What is the Role of the Emunctories?
A pace of detoxification commensurate with the ability of the emunctories to freely discharge toxins is essential for efficient elimination of toxins.
Insufficient elimination is at the base of any pathology. With insufficient elimination, the toxins accumulate in the blood. Then the secondary excretory organs kick in to attempt to eliminate these excess toxins.
The secondary emunctories include the skin and mucous membranes of the:
- Urinary system
- Nasal passages
- Genital tract
- Diarrhea with blood and mucous
- Genital infections
- Urinary tract infections
If these secondary routes are stopped from eliminating, then toxins will continue to accumulate in the tissues, leading to more serious disease.
What is the relationship of toxins and disease?
The effect of toxins in the body ranges from a temporary dysfunction to permanent damage to death.
The body has several built-in mechanisms to prevent absorption of toxins and then deal with toxins that have gotten past the barriers. As well, there are internal systems to eliminate the toxin if possible, and compensate if not.
- impair the immune system
- cause dysfunction of the intracellular organelles
- inhibit or activate enzymes
- disrupt hormones by mimicking endogenous hormones.
Chronic intoxication leads to disease
What are the basic principles of Biotherapeutic Drainage?
The goal is to normalize physiology by eliminating toxins with natural remedies.
Opening the emunctories to discharge toxins helps to support physiological functions.
When physiology is normalized, disease cannot exist.
The method of removing blockages to normal functioning respects natural physiology.
It works at both an intracellular and extracellular level due to homeopathic remedy potency.
It is not a quick fix – we must understand that Nature takes time to return physiology to normal by removing the toxic overload from today’s environmental chemicals.
Why is Biotherapeutic Drainage applicable today?
- poor nutrition
- stress overload
- environmental toxins
It avoids aggravations from detoxification by channeling toxins to organs of elimination and making efficient those organs of elimination.
It can be used to improve health even when prescription medications are being taken, and will not interact with the medications. In addition, I can be combined with herbal, nutritional, and energetic healing.
