Most people take their health for granted until something
goes wrong. It is only when the wheels fall off, that they
start to look more closely at what has brought them to this
position. Your body has a natural ability to maintain good
health and heal itself if it is given the right conditions
in which to do so. In order to understand how you can use
your body's natural protective abilities it's important to
understand some basic facts.
Try viewing your body like you view your bank account.
The bills and payments, which deplete your account are the
stresses to which the body is subjected. The money that you
put in to pay these bills, the credits, are the micro-nutrients
which form part of your diet. When you are putting enough
money or the correct nutrition into the bank it stays in the
black or in good health. The moment that your money or nutrients
don't cover the payments, you go overdrawn or suffer ill health.
At bionetics we will concentrate on reducing the bills or
stresses on your account and increasing the money or micro-nutrients
with which you can cover the bills. The end result should
be an account which is always in the black and therefore in
It is the balance of stresses and nutrition, which will largely
dictate the sate of your health. When there are too many stress
factors and too little nutrition then an imbalance will occur,
which will stop the body's natural defence process. Homeostasis,
the point at which the body is in balance will occur when
the stress levels are reduced and the nutritional intake is
increased. See the animation below for an explanation of this
crucial balancing act.
Once this balance is achieved then a relatively low level
of nutrient supplementation should be sufficient to sustain
the position. However any increase in the stress levels will
lead to a greater requirement for nutrition. The balance needs
Many people only associate malnutrition with pictures they
see on TV of starving people looking skeletal and wasted away.
The fact couldn't be further from the truth. Malnutrition
is probably the biggest killer of people in the Western World.
It is not the acute lack of calories, but it is the massive
depletion in the range of micro-nutrients that poses the main
threat to health in the west.
The victims are often overweight, not under, and sometimes
even appear to be the picture of health. However the story
inside their body is different. Their defensive systems could
have been weakened, leaving the body open to attack and unable
rebuild itself, and many essential processes or functions
in the body can slow down or stop. The modern western diet
provides far more calories than we need with our more sedentary
lifestyles. The industrialised processes used on farms and
in the factories to produce "modern" food - even
so called healthy options, often eliminates essential trace
minerals, vitamins etc that our body needs to work as it was
Look at your diet like you view a car. The petrol
makes the car run, gives it energy so it can get from A to
B. Our petrol is the proteins, fats and carbohydrates that
we eat and that give us the energy that we need to function.
Run out or petrol or food and you simply top up and carry
on. Then there's the oil, which lubricates all of the functions
so that the car works properly. Our oil is the micro-nutrients,
which allow all of our metabolic functions to occur. When
your car runs out of oil the results are often catastrophic
and the same can be said for us. When the basic functions
fail it doesn't matter how much fuel you have in the engine
the car will not run.
These are not just of the emotional sort but relate to anything,
which causes the body to be under stress. Those, which have
most impact on our health, are:
Pathogenic - bacteria, fungus, virus and parasites
Toxic - toxic metals, chemicals and radiation
Food - intolerances and allergies
Nutritional Depletion - adds to the problem by reducing
the resources that the body has to deal with the stress factors.
This depletion weakens the immune system allowing pathogens
to prevail and slows the detoxification process allowing toxins
to accumulate to dangerous levels.
These stresses should not be looked at in isolation but as
a dangerous cocktail of factors that often compound each other.
Our body's are highly toxic because of the foods we eat and
the air we breathe. This state leaves the body out of balance
and creates illness. However part of the problem is the body's
inability to eliminate toxins from its system, which is often
caused by lack of the nutrition needed for these processes.
In order to redress the balance we need to eliminate the toxins
from source and provide the missing nutrition for detoxification.
Your body was designed to work at an optimum pH of around
7.4 or high alkalinity. However modern diets increase acidity,
a condition called acidosis, and this leads to malfunction.
Often the first sign of this happening is heartburn, a condition
caused when the body produces too much hydrochloric acid in
order to try and digest highly processed or intolerant foods.
The dietary changes that we recommend, will in part, contribute
to an increase in the pH level in the body. We also recommend
a product called Nano-Cal.
This will speed up the process of increasing alkalinity and
will remove one more stress from the body. Use the link above

It is a fairly well known fact that we all need to drink more
water- on average between
1.5 - 2 litres per day. Water is required for a host of our
body's primary functions including:
Transportation of hormones, nutrients and oxygen
To allow chemical reactions to occur
Regulation of cell chemistry
Dilution of toxins
Distribution of heat
Without the right amount of the right quality water the body
simply cannot fulfil many of these functions. This puts more
stress on the body and contributes to ill health.
Tap water is full of chemicals and so we recommend bottled
or filtered water. Filtered water is best because it removes
many of the toxins present even in some bottled water. Silverline
make the best filters, so click on the link to find out more
and how to get yours.
Another key factor in helping correct a nutritional imbalance
is to ensure that the gut is capable of absorbing nutrients
efficiently. Often the gut is blocked with debris and has
poor gut flora (probiotics - caused by the use of antibiotics
and other drugs), which help to break down the foods you eat
into the nutrients that pass into your blood stream.
We recommend a product called Prime
Directive, an organic wholefood, which contains 13 friendly
bacteria, which will help to improve digestion and absorption.
