What is Bioregulatory Medicine?

Health is determined by a delicate balance between hormones, nerves, and organs. Each individual is unique with regards to his or her own ability to overcome dysfunction and disease. Bioregulatory medicine is a multidimensional approach to health and wellness that focuses on the underlying cause of disease, rather than simply treating the symptoms.

At BioEnergetics, our team understands the interconnectedness of the mind and body. Therefore, we treat the whole patient rather than just the condition. We specialize in addressing your individual concerns and in detecting and treating dysfunctions before they progress into advanced diseases.

Bioregulatory Medicine vs Functional Medicine

Bioregulatory and functional medicine are two separate approaches that can work in tandem with one another. Let’s take a look at the differences between the two.

Bioregulatory Medicine

Integrative bioregulatory medicine combines traditional and alternative therapies for an overall holistic approach. Rather than focusing on a singular health problem, bioregulatory medicine strives to treat the mind and spirit as well as the body for physical and emotional wellness. Healing the body through this cumulative lens can help individuals feel healthier and more fulfilled overall.

Bioregulatory medicine uses a number of therapies depending on the needs of each individual. Common approaches include:

  • Nutritional therapy
  • Supplements and herbal medicines
  • Detoxification therapy
  • Medication reduction
  • Regenerative medicine

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine focuses on the efficiency of each organ in the body. Using science-based research, this approach recognizes that each individual is unique and seeks to design personalized treatment for every patient’s specific needs.

While functional medicine uses traditional treatments when necessary, practitioners strive to use natural remedies whenever possible. This includes altering lifestyle behaviors such as diet, exercise, stress, and sleep patterns in order to address health concerns. Examples of functional medicine therapies include:

  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Naturopathy
  • Osteopathic medicine
  • Chiropractic medicine
  • Yoga
  • Tai chi

What causes illness, disease, and imbalance?

There are several different reasons why individuals become sick or unwell. Causes may include:

  • Physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual trauma
  • Unresolved fear, anger, grief, or conflict
  • Poor diet or lifestyle
  • Internal and external chemical exposure
  • Radiation exposure
  • Viruses, bacteria, or other microbes

Benefits of Bioregulatory Medicine

Bioregulatory medicine offers a wide range of advantages. Here are some of the most notable benefits of this healthcare approach:

  • Reversal of disease and dysfunction
  • Improved energy
  • Increased immune function
  • Balance of mind, body, and spirit
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Resolution of underlying causes that lead to disease
  • Improved emotional health
  • Better sleep
  • Increased sense of peace and overall wellness
  • Better ability to resolve conflicts within yourself and with others
