Drainage is the combination of measures to be used to ensure the regular elimination of toxins that burden the body of a person. I say of a person, not of persons, because the fact of great importance to remember is that drainage must always be individualized.

Drainage:
“Cells release wastes and toxins into the surrounding tissues. Drainage is the process ensuring that these wastes and toxins are carried by blood and lymph out of cells and tissues toward the excretory organs call emunctories for their elimination.” From Natural Medecine to a Medecine of the Individual, Dr. Gerard Gueniot with Dr. Pierre Tondelier, Editions Amyris, 2010
What is the therapeutic intent of Biotherapeutic DrainageTM?
  • To encourage the body towards homeostasis.
  • To address the underlying cause of disease, not just the symptoms.
  • To encourage physiological equilibrium and self-regulation.
  • To be powerful yet gentle healing.
  • To return the patient to their true natural state of health and vitality.
  • To restore health to the body in a long-lasting and effective way.

“Drainage is the process of detoxifying the body by opening the emunctories and then discharging the toxic accumulations. However, in reality it is a much more complex process in that it provides a support for the natural progression and maturation throughout life.” Dr. Dickson Thom, DDS, ND

What are the basic principles of Biotherapeutic DrainageTM?
  • The body has the potential to naturally eliminate toxins, both those exogenously acquired and endogenously produced.
  • The goal is to normalize physiology by optimizing the body’s capacity to eliminate toxins.
  • When physiology is normalized, disease cannot exist.
  • The method of removing blockages to normal functioning respects 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 heal and return physiology to normal by removing the toxic overload from today’s environmental chemicals.
Why is Biotherapeutic DrainageTM applicable today?
  • It addresses patients' health problems that result from weaknesses in the body’s ability to deal with:
    • poor nutrition
    • stress overload
    • environmental toxins
  • It avoids pronounced aggravations of the patient’s symptoms by optimizing the elimination capacity of primary and secondary emunctories.
  • Biotherapeutic drainageTM is safe and gentle enough to be used in infants, children, adults and elderly patients as well as patients on various medications
  • It can be used in conjunction with other modalities.
How is Biotherapeutic DrainageTM individualized?
  • The treatment is of individual patients, not diseases.
    • There is no disease-specific protocol.
    • Protocols for specific manifestations of symptoms may be adapted to the patient.
    • As this is much different than what they are used to, the practitioner must educate their patient to the benefits of healing deeply and what the journey will be like.
  • It is individualized to patients by categorizing their Terrain. The Terrain is the biochemical and physiological environment of the individual which may be analyzed by miasm, temperament and constitution.
    • Miasm: the genetically inherited plus acquired ability to detoxify on the cellular level. A miasm manifests itself in a patient by mode of cellular detoxification.
    • Temperament: Temporo-spatial classification of the person: how the patient interacts with the world, the way of being in the world such as introverted or extroverted, more in the reasoning mind, or in sensation and in what combination and proportion?
    • Constitution: the physical structure consisting of skeletal structure and posture plus physical nature which is evident when faced with specific life situations that require the patient to take a stand.
