BodyTalk™ Overview

Treating Allergies and Intolerances with BodyTalk©

In 1995, Dr. John Veltheim introduced BodyTalk™, a revolutionary healthcare system that uses state-of-the-art energy medicine to optimize the body’s internal communications and allow it to more effectively respond to injury and illness.

At its heart, BodyTalk™ is an astonishingly simple and effective form of therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be re-synchronized so they can operate as nature intended.

Each system, cell and atom in our bodies is in constant communication with each other at all times. Through our exposure to the stresses of day-to-day life, these lines of communication become compromised, which then leads to a decline in physical, emotional and/or mental well-being. Reconnecting these lines of communication enables the body’s mechanisms to function at optimal levels, thus preventing disease and rapidly accelerating the healing process.

In this way, BodyTalk™ stimulates the body’s innate ability to balance and heal itself as it already does in so many ways – from the disappearance of a small cut to recovery from a cold.

The BodyTalk™ System recognizes that within each and every one of us there lies the innate knowing of who we are and what makes us tick. This innate wisdom carries the answer to the healthcare dilemma we face. This is addressed in the following way:

  1. The BodyTalk™ System facilitates communication with the body’s innate wisdom through neuromuscular biofeedback. This feedback provides the practitioner with a “yes” or “no” answer to any question that is asked of the body. The innate wisdom thus provides the practitioner with accurate guidelines with regard to the bodymind requirements for optimum health.
  2. By following a comprehensive protocol of questions, the BodyTalk practitioner can establish exactly what balancing the body needs in order to harmonize bodymind function. This involves finding out which organs, endocrines or body parts need to be connected to heal communication between them at the physiological, biochemical, circulatory, nervous, emotional and/or energy levels.
  3. The patient and/or practitioner touch(es) the parts that need repair and the practitioner then uses his/her fingers to gently tap the head of the patient in order to focus the brain toward that repair. BodyTalk™ “tapping” is based on an ancient Hatha Yoga technique, and experiments with biofeedback apparatus have shown that such “tapping” causes increase in brain activity in relation to the specific parts being touched.
  4. The practitioner then lightly taps the chest to store the changes in the heart energy complex, which ensures that the new balance is held in deep memory and is, therefore, lasting.

Clinical results have shown that once the communications systems of the body have been reestablished, and the bodymind complex synchronized, the body is capable of healing itself at a deep and lasting level. This is something that modern healthcare systems have tended to forget, or ignore, and the trend has been to intervene in, rather than use, the body’s natural healing processes.

Of course, there are times that natural healing is limited. The typical emergency such as a car accident, where the body is in crisis, attests to the need of skilled intervention in the form of modern medicine.

Nevertheless, BodyTalk™ practitioners are seeing the incredible healing power of a “balanced” body in the daily results obtained in practice. The functions of every part of the body and mind are improved. This means the immune system will start to eliminate chronic and acute viruses, bacteria, parasites and toxins. Reestablishing of the mind/body balance can reduce allergies, emotional and psychological disorders. It also can improve posture and coordination, digestion and elimination, brain functions, learning disorders, and states of distorted consciousness in the form of negative belief systems and attitudes.

BodyTalk™ is used by people in countries across the globe and from all walks of life, from professional athletes looking for a competitive edge to poor communities desperately in need of affordable healthcare. Every person who is sincerely interested in the concept of total healthcare and has a respect for the power of the potential of human bodymind, should find out more about the BodyTalk™ System.

Treating Allergies and Intolerances with BodyTalk™

by Barbara Paulson, RPsych, CBP, RT-CRA

You eat a delicious dish of ice cream. Suddenly you begin to have runny nose and itchy eyes. You are a having a reaction to the ice cream. Your immune system is staging a defensive attack on substances in the ice cream that your body perceives as harmful.

Eating ice cream may also generate a more subtle reaction similar to allergies known as a food intolerance. Intolerances but can be described as a slower more insidious reaction to any substance typically food related. Reactions may not occur for several days making it more difficult for the person to identify the unfavorable substance. Strong cravings or an extreme dislike for a food may also indicate a food intolerance. Intolerances are often contributing factors to symptoms of arthritis, headaches, skin disorders, chronic fatigue and digestive disorders.

Most experts believe that the prevalence of food allergies is rising along with a general rise in the incidence of allergic conditions in North America (AAASI, 2011). As well as common food allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, seafood, dairy, wheat, and soy) other allergens include pollen, insect bites and medications. The Canadian Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Foundation estimate that 20-25% of Canadians have allergic rhinitis (also referred to as “hay fever”). Allergies and food intolerances can be acquired through genetic weaknesses or they can evolve because of a weakened immune system triggered by emotions, environmental factors, and stress. Symptoms can include hives, rashes, sneezing, runny nose, fatigue and headaches.

How BodyTalk™ Helps

BodyTalk™ is a system of therapy that allows the body’s energy systems to be balanced with substances perceived as harmful to the body. Using neuromuscular feedback, the practitioner identifies imbalances in the body so that this healing can occur at all energetic levels, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Our bodies consist of a spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies that are compromised when a perceived harmful substance enters it. These frequencies can be balanced with the person’s internal biochemistry using the BodyTalk protocol.

Neuromuscular feedback is a technique used to detect a substance that provokes negative reaction in the body. What makes BodyTalk even more unique is that practitioners not only balance, but also establish in what order the individual client needs to have substances balanced (Roussey, 2008).

When working with allergies and food intolerances, practitioners use what are known as allergy testing vials. These are glass vials filled with water that are imprinted with the frequency of the allergen or intolerance being tested. The energetic frequency is stored in the water using scalar technology. This same technology is used in magnetic resonating imagery, microwaves and stores information on credit cards and cell phones. By using these vials and the BodyTalk™ protocol the practitioner is able to pinpoint weak links in the body’s communication system that could lead to an allergic reaction and then neutralize the lines of communication to promote natural healing.

BodyTalk Test Kit

Your body can learn to integrate allergens and intolerances rather than having to fight them. This can usually occur without the use of medications or elimination diets. The body is adaptable and able to change its reaction to substances through the use of the BodyTalk treatment protocol. The practitioner essentially uses BodyTalk techniques to harmonize the identified imbalances and then taps over the head (brain) to restore the changes and over the sternum (energetic heart complex) to help store them (Veltheim, 2007). During the session the person’s body is balanced so that he or she will learn to respond to the substance in a neutral way. Working with mild allergies may require 1-4 sessions whereas complex long standing allergies may need 6-12 sessions for balancing.
