Byron White Formulas were designed to work on all layers of the body: physically, emotionally and energetically. They are effective from the cellular to the more subtle layers and from acute to degenerative forms. They were developed and utilized for over 30 + years in my clinical practice for patients with chronic illness and Lyme disease.
What is meant by layering?
Layering supports patients on physical, emotional and spiritual levels, helping them unwind through issues and blockages to a greater level of restoration, health and well-being.
Most approaches to healing, including traditional herbalism, are more two-dimensional: for pain you take a pain killer, for a pathogen you take something to interfere with its functioning or to kill it. This can work for simple or acute situations but is often not productive with chronic conditions. Working two-dimensionally on chronic conditions can actually interfere with the healing and regenerative process by making the body “lock-up”, driving the illness deeper into the system, exacerbating the situation and adding complications that can become more serious with time.
With on-going illness the body begins to change and the internal environment becomes more and more imbalanced. This snowballs until its affects can be felt in even the emotional and spiritual levels. As one layer becomes toxic, damaged, or out of balance it will affect subsequent layers over time. Damage at deeper layers by things like vaccines, heavy metals, enviro-toxins, parasites, can have an affect on how the body functions and can weaken our ability to heal. Bacteria and other pathogens can begin to work within us at various levels, from our blood down to our bone marrow, digging in deeper and causing degeneration over time. At this point just removing the toxin or pathogen is not enough to provide balance and thorough and permanent healing. We must also correct the damage done and bring each layer back into balance.
The energetics of the body are also affected. In terms of Chinese medicine the meridians become unbalanced and illness develops over time. There are also other complex energetics inside and outside of the body that are affected as well. (Our website has a Yin, Yang, Qi survey to help you determine what is out of balance.)
The changes that occur energetically, emotionally and physically create a complex matrix of imbalance and dis-ease within the system. The body makes changes in the way it functions in an attempt to right itself but becomes overwhelmed by multiple layers of damage. These changes occur on ever deepening physical and energetic levels where most forms of care cannot reach.
What can be done when conventional care is not working?:
I learned early on that treating symptoms or even dis-ease was not the best way to go, especially in chronic illness. I researched and developed ways of working with the body, mind, and spirit to create an unwinding of the problems and provide regeneration of health on all levels. For this to work I found that it was very important not to interfere with, or attempt to control, the body, emotions or natural evolution of the person. This meant that a new way of working with herbs needed to be discovered and that suppressive approaches, such as the use of drugs, needed to be compensated for and the imbalances they create addressed.
