Symptoms of mental health are often associated with biochemical imbalances. BBH-trained doctors use specific pathology testing not commonly used by other doctors, including blood and urine tests, to help identify biochemical imbalances. The results are used in conjunction with patient’s symptoms to individualise a treatment plan. These tests are repeated, to see how well a patient is healing.
The correct nutrients can assist with balancing the biochemistry. Nutrients can help to enhance, and in some cases, may reduce the need for medication.
BBH trained doctors are not just treating the symptoms, they are looking for the underlying contributing causes. BBH trained doctors take a detailed patient history, looking for events which may trigger changes in a patient’s health. Addressing underlying biochemical imbalances can help a patient return to optimal health. By understanding there are underlying biochemical issues that may contribute to symptoms, helps to remove the stigma from a mental health diagnosis, and gives hope.
Bio Balance Health is not a medical practice; we train doctors in these skills and the doctors incorporate these skills into their own practice. Many trained doctors have long wait lists because of the positive experiences for their patients.
Currently, patients with problems with their mental health undergo detailed questions which allow the practitioner to categorise their symptoms into groups like Bipolar, OCD, depression, anxiety, Schizophrenia and more. This is the DSM5 categorisation process.
The same symptoms, and more, when used by a Bio Balance Health trained doctor are clustered into groups related to their biochemistry. This work was developed in the private clinic of Psychiatrist Dr Carl Pfeiffer and continued after his death, by Chemical Engineer/ Mathematician, William J Walsh, PhD. Bill’s skill developed patterns related to the biochemistry and developed the use of the appropriate nutrients, for each individual, in high enough doses to supply the co-factors and co-enzymes needed, to stimulate repair and return to closer normal functioning.
This has resulted in better patient outcomes (Effectiveness of Targeted Nutrient Therapy) and an enhancement of the effect of psychiatric medication.
