Bio-Communication: Your Body Speaks
By Terri Hawkins-Fox, N.D., PhD
First of all, you must be wondering what bio-communication is. Basically, it is a technology where a computer sends your body digital stressors and then monitors your response by tracking changes in your skin, more specifically, the galvanic skin response (GSR), a well established biomarker. Proprietary formulas are added to the data that has been gathered by this stimulus-response exchange between the computer and your body. The program then interprets what your body is saying.
Why is Bio-communication Important?
This exciting new way of communicating with the body has never before been possible. It allows specifics that are important to health to be quickly and easily accessed. It’s also an effective way of providing healthcare professionals more detail about their patient’s current health status. This information helps determine which clinical solutions will have the most positive impact in the least amount of time.
How Is It Performed?
The interface between the body and ZYTO’s bio-communication software is the ergonomically designed hand cradle. You simply rest your hand on the hand cradle while the computer sends the digital stressors and gathers your response data. The whole experience is comfortable and painless; most people don’t feel any sensation at all. Usually, patients go to a wellness clinic for testing, or they test remotely by simply purchasing a hand cradle of their own.
Because all ZYTO technology is internet based, it creates a tremendous opportunity for patient/physician communication in the office or at a distance. This is particularly convenient when a consultation is all you need. Maybe you just want to check in and update the vitamins and other natural supplements you’re taking. Once the installation of the software is completed, the patient is ready to start participating in remote sessions with their healthcare professional.
It’s important to understand that ZYTO technology is used to gather information and is not meant to establish medical diagnosis. It does not eliminate the need to visit a doctor and have standard medical care, but it does allow for a more personal interaction between the patient and doctor, and that certainly makes anyone feel better.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Different people respond at different rates, depending on a variety of factors. For example, a three year old child with a recent history of illness will respond faster than a sixty-five year old who has had a problem for fifty years. Life-style, diet, physical condition, and trauma are but a few of the factors which play a role in the healing process.
Generally , it takes 4-6 weeks for every year the patient has had the condition. Health conditions the body has not been able to resolve (i.e. a viral imbalance) are “buried”, and may stay in the body for years before the body is able to start addressing the issue. It takes a tremendous amount of energy to hold these unresolved issues in check while the body deals with the every day activities of survival. These unresolved conditions are often responsible for functional diseases in which a person “just doesn’t feel well” or “hurts all the time”. Standard laboratory and diagnostic tests are normal or inconclusive because the illness is sub-clinical, meaning the illness has not progressed enough to spill over into the body fluids. A person can be in ill health without having positive laboratory tests.
Testing is scheduled every 4-8 weeks initially until all the major issues are resolved. A person then has the option of periodic retesting on a maintenance schedule to head off imbalances before they become major health issues.
The body was designed to be well. The beauty of Electrodermal Screening is that it enables you to function at an optimal level and eliminate illness before it occurs. The Chinese have a saying, “You were born to perform”. Electrodermal Screening assists the body in doing just that!
What Is the Patient’s Role?
The patient has the responsibility of taking ownership of their illness. The doctor provides the tools and information needed to deal with any condition, but YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!!!! The Doctor does not cure anything. He/she assists in returning the body to it’s natural balance and therefore optimal performance. Certain life-style changes may be necessary to correct these imbalances. These may include:* Dietary changes * Exercise recommendations * Relaxation and stress reduction recommendations * Detoxification methods
Body Surveys Scanned with Bio-Communication Testing:*Immune System *Cardiovascular Support *Ear, Nose & Throat Support *Nervous System Support *Allergy Support *Sleep Support *Wellness Support *Fatigue *Weight & Appetite *Respiratory & Sinus *Digestion Support *Hair, Skin & Nails *Vision Support *Pain & Inflammation *Gender Specific Support *Diabetes Support *Food Stressors *Stress & Anxiety *Detoxification *Dental & Jaw Support
The majority of illnesses are the result of life-style. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten!
