The whole bottom line with the Bio Balance program is focused on the balancing of the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) and supporting the Hypothalamus.
The cerebral fluid in our brains is a delicate saline solution with 17 key minerals that has a very narrow parameter or proper ratios and is very sensitive to the proper balance.
Our cerebral fluid is replaced or renewed every 8 hours.
Why? In order to properly allow for electrical conductivity. We totally function on electricity. We are essentially bodies of clay that come to life when electricity is applied to that clay. Take away the electrical charge, and yes, we are just a clump of clay that just sits there. Remember back in the past when a science fiction movie, Frankenstein, came out? The mad scientist wanted to make a person. He did all this stuff, and the creation (read; clump of clay), just laid there. He then connected some wires in, hit the switch, and added electricity to that clump of clay. Then all of a sudden, he exclaims, “It is alive, it is alive!” That idea or concept is based in the scientific fact in that the clump of clay is just that, a clump of clay, until it is energized with electricity.
So, in essence, we are electrical beings. The brain runs on electrical impulses. There aren’t really many “hard wired” connections in the brain. Those impulses have to jump from one point to another through a saline solution. In order for those actions to take place, a very delicate balance of many elements is part of that so-called saline solution that allows for those electrical impulses to be properly directed. The whole bio-balance program is designed with the intention to help the body organize and provide a leadership role in balancing that saline solution. This saline solution is known as the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF). This delicately balanced solution is for the most part, made in the gut/digestive system, then sent upstairs to the brain. When the old CSF is cycled out, it comes back downstairs to be recycled. The CSF is recycled 3 times per day. Can I hear a drum roll for this next part??? Who knows, maybe there is a reason why we typical eat 3 meals per day. Perhaps it’s for this very purpose. This also gives perspective as to not only being consistent in when we eat but also what we eat.
The Essential Oil Blends in the Bio-Balance Program
The program consists of 4 main oil blends, Bio-Balance 1, 2 3, and 4. It also has an add on that is designed to really help to make the interaction with other organs work more effectively. This one is called Organ Balance. That one helps to balance out the ratios with the organs in the body that plays a major role in the making of the Cerebral Spinal Fluid.
Part of the way that we humans learn is by association – by associating or comparing the new thing we are learning with something that we already know. With that in mind, let’s look at the 4 Bio-Balance oil blends.
You might look at this program as a love affair of sorts. Perhaps we should have called this program, a Romance of Nutrients. We didn’t use that term, but it is a romance story, of sorts. Anyway, the #1 part is much like just becoming friends. We learn some basic stuff about each other, some likes and dislikes, and where we come from. Kind of like what happens when two people first meet and an interest is sparked between the two people. Then in #2, we see a really serious getting to know each other, we meet each other’s family, friends, and we really take a serious look at each other. Then when we go to #3 where we have the engagement taking place and serious plans for moving forward begin to really happen. We see the direction of the life of the two main people involved start changing and moving forward. Then when we come to the #4 blend. You might say that here is where the marriage takes place and the two lives become one and life takes on new meaning. The Organ Balance is dealing with family and friends and the whole party outside of the two main characters. Hopefully, we see a life of being happy ever after from this point on.
Let’s look at this in another light. The #1 is a story about Salt, Pepper, Potassium and Iodine coming together to form a basic balance between these 4 key elements. Here we use Coriander, Dill, Orange and Black Pepper. #2 is all about the whole immune system support. So for #2 just think in terms of immune support with key elements focused on Zinc, Selenium, Calcium, and Sulfur. We use Red Cedar, Grapefruit, Fennel, and Lemongrass for this. #3 is a story about actual brain element focus. Here we bring the key elements of Boron, Phosphorus, Nitrogen and Yttrium together. We do this by using Rosemary, Turmeric, Basil and Marjoram. Then in #4 we tie in the nonmetal and metal type minerals to function across the board for brain function. Cobalt is the key one here, along with Iron, Copper and Silica. With this one we introduce some fixed oils into the essential oil makeup for a more rounded nutrient load. Those oils are Black Cumin, Coffee, Nutmeg, Thyme and Rose Hip.
We use various oils as a catalyst to accomplish the task of facilitating, promoting, and activating these various elements. In addition, we use proprietary blends of crystalized inland sea water based nutrients in each of the blends mentioned in order to help with overall balancing and in the metabolizing of the oils into the whole body system. Every oil in the program is obtained from a donor plant that tends to uptake the various nutrients and provide them in a good, solid metabolite form and works to form a good balance with regard to ratios and co-factors.
In learning from observations during the development of this program, we observed that some people really liked what they experienced during the get to know part. Others liked what they experienced in the different stages, so they stayed or returned to their favorite stage, until they were ready to move on. Then others liked a second go around through the whole process. Why? because as we know, when we are in love, life seems to go a lot better.
From a realistic aspect, we look at the four main parts of an electrical charge. You might say the voltage is one. With each charge there is the polarity or the direction in which the electricity flows. Basically, does it flow from left to right or from right to left? This actually makes a huge difference in how the process works. As a general rule the positive charge usually flows from the positive to the negative. Another general rule with electricity is that if the voltage is high then the amperage is low. The lower the voltage the higher the amperage. To visualize this aspect, think of it in terms of a boxing match between two people. The voltage is how big and mean the fighter is. The amperage is how hard the fighter hits. With electricity sometimes the little guy hits a lot harder than the big guy and ends up doing much more serious damage. By this same principle with nature, the micro-nutrients many times will provide a much larger impact than the macro-nutrients. A focus of key nutrients at each charge level and polarity position is considered with each of the four blends in the program and by the same token, in the Organ Balance.
How long do you need to use these oils or participate in this program for the best outcome? As a general rule 5 months. 1 month for each blend. Each bottle of oil will last the average person about 1 month. Some people felt they received the best results by going from one oil to the next, such as starting with the Bio-Balance #1 and finishing with Organ Balance. Others felt they received the best results by rotating through the oils on a weekly basis while some did just a hit and miss of whatever they felt like using on that day. The most important aspects to use consistently over the 5-month period.
My suggestion is to use them all for the 5-month period, and then afterwards if there is one or more of the oils that you really like, just focus on those. Also, I believe that doing the 5-month program once a year may be beneficial for most people.
I tried each of the various methods and I liked them all, or in other words, they all worked for me (Kent’s perspective). However, I feel like that you get best results with essential oils if you follow the 5 day on and 1 day off in whatever essential oil protocol the person is doing.
However, do whichever options works best for you.
How much should I use and where do I apply it?
As a general rule the concept is 1 drop per 50 lbs. of body weight, but I found that a simple rule of thumb is to dab some oil on your index finger, use enough to cover your fingerprint area of that finger and apply it to your skin. Many people felt like rubbing around the belly button area worked best for them. However, any other place on the body will likely work well. Well, not so much so if you put it in or around your eyes or private parts. Just use common sense here. The idea is to get the oil in a place that will absorb easily and not just get rubbed off in a short period of time. A person can use it on a 1 time per day or 2 times per day application. It is a personal preference; IE; what works best for you. The whole fingerprint idea seems to be pretty close for everyone. IE: if you are a larger person, your fingerprint area will be larger, so you will get more oil and it seems to balance out as to the body weight application rates.
These oils are really safe to use. Within reason, you really can’t overdose, as the body will sense the “too much” aspect and it generally shuts down the absorption part. But the key here is to not use them internally. DO NOT USE INTERNALLY. These are not formulated for internal use. They are formulated for TOPICAL USE ONLY. I tried them internally for testing purposes. I am still alive, but on the other side, they did no good, no positive, observable effects were noted other than an upset stomach. Basically, internal usage with these blends is akin to dumping them out on the ground.
So there you have a simplistic, general description of the Bio-Balance program
