Are you convinced no doctor can help you? Think again!

How do the healing methods (non-pharmaceutical) of the Hansa Center measure up to serious "incurable" illnesses? 


Background and Objectives: Few reviews have examined the overall effectiveness of a complete treatment philosophy upon the suffering of the chronically ill whose only inclusion requirement to be in the study is that nothing they have done in the conventional or alternative medicine treatment philosophies had ever provided any relief. This case review used a daily interview approach to examine the improvements experienced in the wide range of symptoms after 5 and 10 days of the various tailored treatments and therapies unique to the healing philosophy of American Biological Medicine (ABM) as performed at the Hansa Center for Optimum Health in Wichita, Kansas.

Goals: The goal of this study is to take participants through a maximally applied knowledge and effort to restore the functional and structural integrity of the entire human organism, as opposed to the minimum effort and reductionist philosophies of conventional medicine.

The goal is to document the rapid relief that is possible even in cases that had not responded to any natural or conventional medicine. The ultimate goal in Biological Medicine’s philosophy of treatment is to restore health in order to provide  lasting improvement, although the long-term tracking of improvements is outside of the parameters of this report.

Methods: Twenty-nine individuals experiencing diverse chronic unresponsive symptoms were accepted for participation and completed the full 2-week protocol.  The treatment protocol included ten days (Monday through Friday) for two straight weeks. Each day included at least one hour of one-on-one doctor treatments and approximately four additional hours of therapies.

The group reported a total of 385 symptoms. Although every participant in this study had previously received classical diagnosis of several named diseases, it is not the philosophy of American Biological Medicine to diagnose and treat named diseases.  American Biological Medicine specializes in restoring health and functional integrity to the entire human being, using all the sciences, and from this stance the various symptoms are improved.

Statistics were gathered after completing five days and ten days of treatments.

This non-sham, non-blinded, in-house study was conducted and results compiled and reported from daily interviews of the participants by the attending doctor .

American Biological Medicine is unique in its healthcare philosophy in that it encompasses the knowledge of the complete interconnectedness of all the body systems, as well as the concept of the body being set up on somewhat dedicated circuits with each organ sharing an energetic connection with specific glands, neurological tissues, joints, muscles, and emotions. As such, anything that goes wrong along any aspect of one of these circuits will cause the entire circuit to suffer a decrease in functional integrity. 

American Biological Medicine is also unique in that it views all the healing sciences, techniques, and technologies as tools that are to be skillfully and synergistically implemented within each office visit by the doctor.  The more various healing tools a doctor can bring to bear on a case the more likely it is that they will have the correct tool for the task at hand.  The knowledge level of the doctor of ABM enables all of the various treatment modalities to be used dynamically by the attending doctor under one roof.

The AMB doctor seeks to utilize the correct tools for the condition at hand., applying virtually all the various treatments himself dynamically as determined by his testing. Doctors specializing in ABM are trained to have mastery of physical medicine, radiological and conventional laboratory testing, nutritional and energy medicine, and all of the natural life and healing sciences. The goal of each doctor treatment is to identify and address any issue that may be interfering with the body’s own ability to heal. Each treatment is applied with the understanding that it must work with the body’s own wisdom and design and each treatment, whether manual, energetic, or nutritive must work synergistically with each other and synergistically with the efforts of the body, without harming or disrupting any aspect of the human organism. The true restoration of health of any aspect of the human organism is addressed in ABM, no matter how remote the issue is to the area in which the symptoms are being experienced.

The testing protocol used the dynamic adjunctive testing techniques of American Biological Medicine, to include BioResonance Scanning, Computerized Regulation Thermography, Tongue and eye diagnostics, physical examination, neurological and orthopedic testing. 

Treatments included one hour per day utilizing but not limited to, dynamic testing to systematically align all body systems, electromagnetic field balancing, neurological balancing,, musculoskeletal alignments, Multi-posture/Intraoral Cranial Fixation therapy, NeuroPhotonic Therapies, homeopathy, botanical medicine, nutrition, essential oils, polarity treatments, myofascial release therapy, detoxification therapies, dietary counseling, lifestyle counseling, and emotional counseling, and lymphatic stimulation.

No symptom-masking remedies were utilized throughout this study, such as natural, OTC, or pharmaceutical pain relievers.

Analyses examined self-reported, subjective, symptom severity or improvement. Objective improvements were apparent, yet are outside of the confines of this report.

Results: The case review goals were met with 85%, 327 of the 385 total symptoms for the group showing improvement after 10 days of treatment and 273 symptoms (71%) after just five days of treatment. Significant to this study was that 110 symptoms (29%) reported as no longer present by the end of 5 days of treatment. There were 174 symptoms (45%) reported as no longer present by the end of 10 days of treatment

With respect to symptom variability, 2 distinct subgroups were observed, with approximately ninety-four percent of participants reporting high levels of improvement and six percent reporting low levels of improvement. There were no significant variations in response to treatment based upon the severity of the symptoms, how long the patient had suffered from their symptoms, age, or gender. No serious adverse events occurred during or after 10 treatment sessions.

Discussion: It has been reported that 88% of all conventional medicine treatments address an illness by seeking to suppress the symptoms through pharmaceutical drugs or invasive interventions. This is the definition of the Allopathic Medicine philosophy. Allopathic Medicine’s philosophy treats pain with pain-relievers, allergies with antihistamines, infections with antibiotics, depression with antidepressants, and so on. Due to the fact that the symptom suppression treatment never seeks to identify the interfering causative factors the best that can be hoped for with this philosophy is drug-dependence and remission of symptoms.

The results of this short case study demonstrate that it is possible to enable often rapid and dramatic improvements by seeking to restore the health and integrity of the whole organism.  With the ABM goal of true restoration of health, the patient does not need to continue with years of treatments, or continue taking medicines, supplements, or remedies in order to continue feeling well.

 The criterion for being included in this case review was any person with chronic symptoms who has not improved with any conventional or alternative treatments. Many studies have been performed reporting on the efficacy of the various treatment modalities utilized in this review, such as meridian therapy, homeopathy, nutrition, etc. Very few studies have attempted to study the effectiveness of a complete healing philosophy (American Biological Medicine) that encompasses many different modalities applied as a functional system.

This study is designed to answer some primary questions.  How effective is the treatment system of American Biological Medicine, and can it improve the lives of a group of chronically ill patients whom no conventional or alternative medicines had been able to improve.  The study is limited to what occurred within the first two weeks of care.

The significance of these results must be recognized in the context of the fact that each of the 385 symptoms was reported as non-responsive to all previous conventional and alternative medicine. The limitations of this study are that the long-term correction and symptom relief was not followed at the time of this publication. 

Excluded from this review were any persons suffering from suicidal tendencies, severe psychological disorders, late-stage cancer, and anyone without the ability to get themselves on and off the treatment/therapy tables.

In conclusion, this case review effectively demonstrated the ability of the comprehensive healing philosophy of American Biological Medicine to dramatically provide the restoration of health by addressing core interferences resulting in significant relief of chronic, unrelenting symptoms. While the long-term improvement and true restoration of health is always the ultimate goal, ten days of treatment is a not realistic amount of time and treatments to completely address all the dynamic nature of conditions that have been present for many years. With continued support, beyond the two weeks, it is believed that lasting relief can be achieved in virtually any type of chronic illness.

This case review would ideally be repeated with an independent reviewer and a grant to enable a six to twelve month study based upon the same initial two week protocol followed by a determined amount of follow up treatments. A review of these patients would be carried out over a five and ten year interval to determine the long-term effect of the treatment philosophy of American Biological Medicine.
