What is  BioGeometric Integration? (Based upon the teachings and writings of B.J. Palmer, D.C. and Sue Brown, D.C.)

(Frequently, patients seeking our chiropractic services have only their own previous experiences or

shared opinions of friends and relatives, upon which to base their ideas or concepts of what

Chiropractic health care may be. Some folks have no notion as to what services a chiropractor may

provide. To achieve a better understanding of Chiropractic and BioGeometric Integration, I offer this

page as added insights.)

An  understanding  of BioGeometric Integration (BGI) might best start with an understanding of

Chiropractic- not with the "usual" picture or common public view of chiropractors as  back doctors,

but rather as an understanding of our profession inclusive of the original intention of chiropractic,

which is to release interference within the body and its nervous system to the expression of one's

Innate Intelligence. 

An organizing intelligence exists within each of us that coordinates such processes as our heartbeat,

breathing, digestion, and chemical balance, to name a few; each functioning without necessity of

conscious thought. This intelligence allows us to walk, talk, think, and listen, without knowing the 

complex interactions that must take place for these activities to occur. The main control center for

our body functions is housed within the Central Nervous System, the brain, in particular. However,

this intelligent entity actually extends into the glandular (endocrine) system and the immune system

(including blood cells and other specialized cells found within the circulatory system). Our body's life

processes include billions of functions, all taking place at the same time and extending into each

body system, each tissue, and into microscopic levels of our tissues' cells and their components.

This is an awesome undertaking, which no conscious thought process could ever achieve.  

As a matter of fact, our bodies' actions and reactions to environmental stimuli (internal and external)

and all healing processes occur as a result of the expression of this highly specialized inborn

intelligence. The  reason we experience  dis-ease  in our lives – whether expressed as a physical

symptom, a chemical dependency, or an emotional/mental pattern – is that there is interference

somewhere within the brain, spinal cord, or in the communication to/from the effector organs of the

body in the expression of this intelligence. This interference is what many in the chiropractic

profession call a "subluxation",  and the chiropractic adjustment is intended to assist the body in

reducing the subluxation, thus releasing the interference in the expression of the Innate.

Chiropractors traditionally perceived the subluxation strictly in terms of bony spinal segments

compressing or stretching soft tissues (particularly the spinal cord and its nerves) within the nervous

system. These concepts are collectively a significant aspect of BGI, yet it  not only recognizes this

aspect but also expands its Big idea to further encompass contemporary knowledge of our bodies

and the world in which we live.

With the discovery of insights by master minds, such as Albert Einstein, Max Planck, Max Born,

Heinrich Hertz, and others into Quantum physics, came a new vision of our world. We are now

learning of a new existence that shifts away from things and “solid reality” to one in which energy

and matter become interchangeable.  This energy is experienced as  vibrations, frequencies,  or

tones. From newly acquired knowledge, comes new discoveries that help to change the way many

researchers view Life and the body, creating many technological advancements. Scientists are now

seeing the body not only as a physical structure, but also as an energetic system, something ancient

healing arts have recognized for centuries.  

In BioGeometric Integration, this view of the energetic quality of our existence  is integrated into its

Chiropractic concept of subluxation. The subluxation is not only viewed in terms of a neurological

component, but also as an energetic component.

In life, we are constantly exposed to and stimulated by limitless sources of  input;  this input comes

in many forms ranging from stimuli that routinely stimulate our five senses- sight, taste, hearing,

smell, and touch- to excessive overloads to our bodies and minds in the form of physical injuries,

chemical toxicities, and emotional and mental stresses. As varied as all these experiences or

stressors appear, the one constant for each of them is that they are all energetic in nature. Our

nervous system perceives the outer world through its senses,  resonating the energy of each

experience, interpreting it, and changing it from frequencies and tones to words we understand,

objects we recognize, and compressive forces that we feel.

While taking a strong interest in studying the teachings of  masters of  health and the BodyMind, I

am developing an understanding that if experiences we have are integrated, that is, the intelligence

of the body recognizes and processes the information contained in the experience, then we can

utilize them to grow, learn, heal, and evolve. However, if we do not integrate the experience and are

unable to dissipate the energetic stuckedness, then the body  continues to respond to these areas of

energetic blockages  and compensate to these unhealed stresses, and  dis-ease  and discomfort

are born.

Our senses perceive particular energies, with particular frequencies or tones; the tone of the energy 

determines the information carried by each experience. Information processing systems of the body

then interpret the tones and initiate appropriate responses, and the energy of the experience is

utilized within the body. This energy utilization and tone interpretation suggests that there is an

integration of this energy and tone (information) into the system. To integrate is to make whole or

unify by bringing together parts. Therefore, when an experience is integrated, essentially what

happens is the tone of the energy becomes part of us.  

Quantum physics has shown that we are but a multitude of synchronized/organized frequencies- we

are a musical symphony manifested into a physical form. When we integrate an experience of life

we’ve simply added another note to the music that we are, increasing the complexity of our music

ever so slightly. Our structure is determined by our music, and if our inner music changes, our

structure changes. By increasing the complexity of our music by integrating a new tone (experience),

we increase the complexity of our structure. As Dr. Sue Brown reminds us in her teachings of BGI,

this is evolutionary. It is simply the integration by living systems of frequency upon frequency over

billions of years. Viewing the experiences of life in this way opens the door to see every experience,

no matter what it is, as an  opportunity to learn, grow, and evolve.

What if experiences (and their associated tones) don’t integrate? If a system can’t integrate an

experience and its energetic influence, then it is not utilized and integrated; it is stored in the body.

The BodyMind perceives it as a foreign, dissonant tone. It’s like an experience of someone yelling

and screaming at you, and you don’t know why. You can’t integrate the experience because it is too

big and beyond comprehension. Therefore, long after this overload has passed, you keep playing it

repeatedly, and the more you think about it, the more uncomfortable you get. And years later, you

see this person, who verbally assaulted you, and you get agitated, nervous, and defensive. These

non-integrated tones create  dis-ease in the body and the dissonance of the tone creates tensions

and distorts the body’s natural geometric structure and alignment.

This is an excellent description of the "subluxation", a non-integrated energetic experience that

distorts the music (and geometry) and interferes with our Innate expression, resulting in tight

muscles, misaligned vertebrae, and tension on the system of nerves.  Within principles of Quantum

physics and Dr. Brown's BioGeometric teachings, this blocked energy is stored energy, stored as

"potential energy", which gives us a "second chance". As previously written, the subluxation contains

the information of life's experience. If the body didn’t store the experience in the form of a

subluxation, then the possible learning contained in each experience would be lost. All those

overwhelming experiences would wreak havoc and then be lost forever with no possibility to learn,

grow, and evolve, and in storing the non-integrated experiences, the body keeps the potential of

every experience. In BGI, the chiropractic adjustment releases that potential energy, giving the

BodyMind system a second chance to integrate the energy and information of the original

experience, thus providing the opportunity to grow, learn, evolve, and heal.

The BioGeometric Integration approach to chiropractic healthcare utilizes this understanding of the

subluxation, while other aspects also make BGI unique. One concept is the idea of integration. We

discussed integration previously in terms of the creation of the subluxation and the evolution of living

things. BGI's adjusting procedures utilize this concept of integration to assess whether the nervous

system is ready to receive the adjustment and also whether the system fully integrates the

adjustment given. If the body is not ready to receive the information and potential that will be

released by the adjustment, or if the system is ready but does not fully integrate the potential energy

released, then it will simply lock back in, be stored again, and the subluxation will return. BGI

recognizes this concern and uses assessment tools that allow the practitioner to determine if the

system is ready to be adjusted, and if the adjustment and thus potential energy will be fully

integrated.

BGI  recognizes the importance of  determining the area in which the potential energy in the body is

being primarily stored. Essentially there are three categories of   stored places—the muscles, the

soft connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, and the tissue around the organs called mesentery), and

the hard connective tissue (bones).  

An important feature of the BGI adjusting protocol is that it recognizes that there is an  innate

geometry in the body, that this geometry is a reflection of the innate music that we are. By

identifying, understanding, and utilizing the geometry, the chiropractor can better assess and release

the subluxation. The geometry allows us to glimpse the entire effect of the subluxation, thus making

it possible to release it as an integrated whole. It also allows us to prioritize the incredible number of

subluxation patterns so that the timing of each release is optimum.

Through BGI, we can understand both the physical and energetic aspects of the cause of  dis-ease,

realize the potential of each experience, and assess the most effective, efficient, and integrative way

to release the potential stored within each one of us.
