“Good morning Kate!I just wanted to share that since my session I am feeling much clearer overall! The first day I had a massive headache, which started while still at the office, but was gone the next day. I still noticed my body reacting to fats, but a bit less everyday… The best though is how I feel clearer energetically overall! I look forward to continued sessions, and improvements!” LD (Kelowna)(BIE client)
“The footspa works so good. I feel so energized and more confident than ever. It helped my mother too. She feels also directly after the session energized and more positive. She’s « feeling » her feet again (because of her polyneuropathy she couldn’t « feel » her feet anymore). We’re so thankful, you can’t imagine how much!! We want to do one session per month for ourselves. Some acquaintances are now coming for the footspa too. Again a BIG THANKS Kate for all your help and your support. It’s been a real positive shift!” BF (Detox Foot Spa Client)

Severe Digestive Upset?
January 2011 – 38 year old female whose major complaint was a perceived gluten intolerance, bloating, fatigue, stomach cramps, joint pain and diarrhea. She had a yeast overgrowth, mercury sensitivity most likely due to dental fillings and was also sensitive to gliaden (another wheat protein) as well as gluten. She was also intolerant to most grains, sugar, yeast, banana, apple, bell peppers, egg and dairy. She was advised to clean up the gut with Black Walnut, HRP-C, Artemisia Combination, Probiotic-11 and liquid Chlorophyll. She has done 5 sessions of BioEnergetics and 1 Detox Foot Bath and Heavy Metal Detox. She now only occasionally suffers from bloating, after she eats sugary desserts and drinks more than 2 glasses of wine. She takes Pau D’Arco and Probiotic-11 to keep the yeast in check and feels much better.
February 2014 – 6 year old boy who is reactive to his Grandma’s cat. He was upset on his first visit because he feared that I was going to advise them to get rid of the cat. His nose runs, eyes itch and his skin gets bumpy and itchy. He did 2 sessions of BIE, 2 detox footspas, HRP-C, Sunshine Heroes Probiotics, Sunshine Heroes multivitamins plus Iron and Liquid Chlorophyll. He is now very happy that he can hold and play with the kitty without reacting.
“When we talk about health conditions, there is hardly a human disease or condition that may not involve an allergic factor…any portion of the body, organ, or group of organs may be involved…” Dr. Devi S. Nambudripad
April 2012 -39 year old male came in with debilitating pollen sensitivity that lasted early spring to mid summer. He took over the counter anti-histamines, which no longer worked to keep his itchy, watery eyes and sneezing under control. He was tested for pollens and energetic blockages in his inflammatory pathways to determine which pollens were aggravating his immune system. He did 3 sessions of BioEnergetics and took Histablock and has not had to take another anti-histamine in 2 years.
Digestive Upset and Bloating?
November 2011 – 34 year old female with bloating, and unexplained stomach pain after she ate. She began a cleansing program of Candida Clear, Probiotic-11, Digestive Enzymes and Liquid Chlorophyll. She carefully watched her diet for foods that bothered her, and avoided them. She is eating a varied diet and is happy to avoid wheat and dairy products. She no longer suffers from unexplained and random stomach upset. She continues Probiotic-11, Yeast and Fungal Detox and Liquid Chlorophyll.
“Allergies not only mimic the symptoms of various disorders, but also play an important role in the causation of a wide variety of disorders and diseases. Unfortunately, the role that they play in the disease causation is frequently overlooked, since many doctors and patients tend to underestimate the power of allergy.” Kenneth Bock, M.D.
Newborn Skin Reactions?
January 2011 – 4 month old baby boy with severe skin reactivity all over face. Itchy sores were weeping clear fluid and some were bleeding. Baby was exclusively breast fed, and intolerant to wheat, dairy, and various other foods in the mom’s diet. He did 3 sessions of BIE, probiotics and a homeopathic remedy to control yeast overgrowth. 3 weeks later, skin was clear and baby looked beautiful.
Congestion from Unknown Sources?
November 2013 – 33 year old female, who has been a vegan for 13 years and leads an active lifestyle. 7 years ago developed stuffy nose and tightness in chest when she was at home, in a basement suite where she lived with her 2 cats. She had completed the Wild Rose Cleanse, but felt that she reacted to her cats, feathers and to her apartment! If she even held her cats she would develop intensely itchy eyes, sneezing and itchy skin. She did 2 sessions of BioEnergetics, Black Walnut and Probiotic-11 to address a yeast and parasite overgrowth. She reports that she can now enjoy snuggling with her cats and living in her apartment without being triggered.
“Sometimes the dreadful damage that allergies can do begins subtly, and almost innocently-as a runny nose, or a cough, or heartburn. But the damage can escalate, step by step, until tragedy is suddenly just one step away.” Dr. Kenneth Bock, M.D.
Gluten and Dairy Intolerances?
December 2011 – 35 year old male – with known gluten and dairy intolerances, as evidenced by bloating and gas after ingesting. He was leaving for a dream vacation in a short time and wanted to be able to enjoy his vacation without these bothersome symptoms. He did 2 sessions of BioEnergetics, Yeast and Fungal Detox, Probiotic-11 and was able to eat bread, pasta and cheese and lattes without experiencing digestive upset!
October 2011 – 5 year old girl who’s mom thinks she has food intolerances. The girl’s eyes roll back in her head and her body goes limp, she can’t concentrate, she has dark circles under her eyes and is very lethargic. We begin with BioEnergetics, detox foot bath and HRP-C, Black Walnut and Probiotic-11 to address a yeast overgrowth. She is markedly improved after the first session, but requires 5 more BioEnergetics and detox foot bath sessions. Her teachers were so happy with the change in this little girl and in her ability to concentrate and do excellent school work. Her eyes no longer roll back in her head and she is able to be a “normal” kid!
“Since more than 90% of all food allergies are of the delayed onset type, skin tests and the IgE RAST will miss detecting the vast majority of food allergies…those suffereing from arthritis, asthma, chronic sinusitis, hay fever, recurrent urinary tract infections and other diseases are told that food allergies have nothing to do with their illness and that only a lifetime of steroid, antibiotic and antihistamine drugs will help.” Dr Zoltan Rona, M.D.
Baby’s Health Complaints?
December 2010 – 9 month old baby throws up when she eats certain foods. She in intolerant to salmon, blueberries, onion, garlic, wheat and dairy. She does 3 BIE sessions, Sunshine Heroes probiotics and HRP-C. She is able to eat those foods without throwing up.
Reactions to Food and Sun?
January 2014 – 36 year old man breaks out in hives when he eats shellfish. His skin also goes bright red and he feels nauseous when he is in direct sunshine. With BioEnergetics, GreenZone, Probiotic-11, Heavy Metal Detox, and Vitamin D, he is able to eat prawns and shellfish and sit in the sun on his tropical vacation without the bothersome reactions.
“While the vast majority of people who change their diet as directed…experience improvement in their condition, osteoarthritis reversal can be accelerated or further enhanced with the use of a few natural remedies. Most of these compounds have been shown to be at least as effective as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (aspirin and ibuprofen, for example) for controlling and eliminating symptoms.” Dr Zoltan Rona M.D.
Arthritis or Joint Pain?
November 2013 – 63 year old female with intense joint pain, especially when it she is working. She finds that eating bread and pasta seems to aggravate the joint pain flare-ups. She wanted to avoid pharmaceuticals and get pain relief naturally. She ate a standard diet including oatmeal, fruit, yogurt and almond milk. She had two sessions of BioEnergetics and 3 Detox Foot Baths over 5 weeks. She also took supplements to cleanse and nourish. She added IsaLean Shakes to breakfast, as well as Black Walnut, Flax Oil and Liquid Chlorophyll. She noticed some improvement after the first session. The next month, she took Locolo fibre supplement for cleansing, LIV GD to nourish the liver, Super Trio which is a daily packet of vitamin, mineral, Super Oil and antioxidant capsules, Eveflex for joint pain, GreenZone Powder for micronutrients and Silver Gel to help with some skin irritations. She reports that her pain is reduced to the point that she hardly notices it and that she is able to work without pain. She still avoids wheat products by choice.
“All types of arthritis can be helped to varying degrees by detecting and eliminating food allergies…they contribute to increasing the inflammatory response, making the signs and symptoms worse.” Dr Zoltan Rona M.D.
Pollen Intolerances and More?
November 2010 – 57 year old female with debilitating pollen intolerances that cause intense itching in the throat, watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose. She is also intolerant to many foods, cosmetic scents and experiences bloating and digestive discomfort daily. She experiences sore joints also. Taking over-the-counter allergy pills has stopped providing relief. She began with BioEnergetics and supplementation to address a yeast overgrowth. This included a 30-day yeast reducing diet plan, Pau D’arco, Probiotic-11, Everflex and Liquid Chlorophyll. She noticed relief from many symptoms after the first month, especially in the delay of her pollen reactive symptoms until later in the season. Soon she was able to tolerate pollens without the dramatic reactivity. Her digestive system calmed down and she no longer suffers the bloating and discomfort. She continued with BioEnergetics, Detox Foot Baths, Yeast and Fungal Detox, Heavy Metal Detox, Capsicum, Digestive Enzymes and All Cell Detox sequentially over 3.5 years. She feels younger and has energy to do her volunteer jobs, travel and live happily in her retirement.
Acne and more?
November 2013 – 55 year old male who is tired all the time, slightly depressed, has low motivation, mood swings, bad breath, body odor, athlete’s foot and is always cold and sweaty. He suffers from acne on his chest which seems to be triggered by foods. His diet contains excessive starch and simple sugars and is deficient in micronutrients. He began with BioEnergetics, Yeast and Fungal Detox with , Protease Plus between meals and liquid Chlorophyll to alkaline the body and deodorize and a package of 3 detox foot baths. One week later he reports that is energy is returning and he has improved focus. His acne is subsiding and his wife thinks that is body odor is slightly better. He still feels tired, but does express some improvement. After 2 more sessions of BIE, IsaLean Shakes, Greenzone Powder, Probiotic -11 and AD-C, he has fewer mood swings, and an increased ability to focus on his busy work life. His athlete’s foot has cleared and he is down to wearing only 2 layers of clothes…instead of 5!
“Food sensitivities often do not produce immunological reactions from skin testing, although they may produce a wide variety of symptoms throughout the body. Therefore, they may not be considered to be allergies. Many doctors now estimate that up to two-thirds of allergic-like reactions may be in this category” Dr. Bateson-Koch DC ND
