WHAT IS BIODECODING®?

Biodecoding® is one of the most innovative approaches to illness and natural healing. It proposes a new way of decoding symptoms (whether physical, emotional or mental) and resolving their biological, emotional and ancestral cause through a well-defined signature methodology that has integrated in whole or in part various concepts such as: German New Medicine®, psycho-biogenealogy, Marc Fréchet’s works, Bio-NLP, and other recent scientific discoveries.
There are many ways of understanding and healing symptoms. Each healing systems has its own presuppositions: Acupuncture focuses on harmonizing the energy flow through the meridians to re-balance the body. Naturopathy recognizes the inherent curative and self-regulating force of the body, and supports it through the use of bio-compatible nutrition, nature's made substances and healthy lifestyle. Chiropractic medicine restores the body's normal functioning and optimizes it through manipulation of the spine and the framework of the body. Finally, allopathic medicine chooses to fight against disease by thwarting the symptoms and making up for physiological deficiencies.
The novelty of Biodecoding® is that dis-ease is not considered as an uncontrolled adverse reaction against the body's integrity. On the contrary, "dis-orders" are approached in a global comprehension of the biological phenomena of nature, which are ALWAYS survival adaptations to unexpected unmanageable life events. Indeed, Biodecoding® is based on the premise that illness stems from an emotional distress or trauma, and the symptom is a useful and logical biological response to increase the person's chance of survival.
This may sound shocking to hear that arthritis, cancer, migraines or overweight are logical, useful and increase the chance of survival - especially for someone suffering from illness. So let’s take few examples to understand this new concept, which simply reflects the body’s normal way of reacting. When I go in the sun, I tan. It’s a perfectly adapted reaction where my skin develops melanocytes to protect my body against ultraviolet radiations. When I go in the mountain, my respiration amplifies to catch more oxygen, and my biology produces more red blood cells in order to transport it. If I accidently eat toxic foods, I vomit. So far, everything sounds normal and logical.
Here are more examples. Astronauts, who stay in space for a long period of time, see their muscles atrophy because they are not as useful in weightlessness. A manual worker will develop a callus on the site where his tool rubs his skin. Animals that hibernate store fats to build some reserves and protect themselves from cold. Migratory birds store fat in their liver in order to have reserves of food immediately available in a glycogen form. If I wound myself, my biology will react by bringing onsite plenty of white blood cells, antibodies and nutrients for the cells to multiply, and for scarification, along with many other reactions that constitute inflammation.
Those biological reactions sound perfectly logical since we can identify the cause, which is tangible. Now, how does it work with thoughts and emotions? In fact, it affects the body the same way. Thoughts and emotions trigger physiological changes as well, and you know it. Let’s make a little experience, shall we? Think about biting a slice of lemon. What do you notice when thinking of it? Your mouth instantly increased the production of saliva. And you did not even have a lemon in front of you. The thought of a stressful or traumatic situation will trigger a similar instantaneous reaction in the body. [to be continued, stay tuned…]
