Body Restoration Technique
What You Should Know
The Body Restoration Technique, often called BRT for short, is a program of thought based on the work of Dr. Eric E. Berg. He believes that certain Endocrine System inhibitors, such as pesticides, herbicides, and hormones leftover in meat get into your body and lodge themselves in your tissues. He believes these inhibitors act like hormones, causing chaos in your body. He developed the Body Restoration Technique with acupuncture and spine manipulation to release these disruptors and get your body back on track.
There are 8 areas of focus in BRT. They are called modules. These areas are the Thyroid, Heart/ Adrenal/ blood pressure, Blood sugar, Digestion/Arthritis, Stubborn Weight, Menstrual Cycle, Menopause, and the Prostate.
Dr. Berg is a board certified Chiropractic physician. He founded the Berg Institute for Health and Wellness. He has also authored several books.
From what we could find on the websites that Dr. Berg has his information on, this system is not a diet per se. You don’t take any fat burners or bad tasting diet drinks. It’s an integrated system of treatment that is meant to focus on your whole body health. This is claimed to be achieved through acupuncture, chiropractic care, supplementation, and a whole-food based eating plan that you use for whichever body type you are. There is a body type questionnaire on Dr. Berg’s website to determine this.
This program needs to be administered by a registered acupuncturist or chiropractor. There is no self-guided tour. You must be under the supervision of a practitioner of this system, and there may not be one in your area. The supplements that Dr. Berg recommends are expensive as well as expansive. He recommends several pills to take throughout the day. This can be tedious and time consuming. While his website does offer a lot of articles and health information, they are all from his perspective and ignore many of the mainstream professional’s advice about weight loss and exercise.
While Chiropractic care and Acupuncture have their merits, this program would be difficult for just anyone to begin. You must adjust for the cost of a chiropractor and an acupuncturist, which, if not covered by insurance, is costly and time consuming. We took several of the quizzes for our body types and even if you resemble more of one body type than another, you are only allowed to fit into one category. If you answer the questions wrong or you have a symptom that he has categorized in a different body type, you could be taking all the wrong supplements for what he says your body type is. This could be a costly waste of money. Without really being able to go to his clinic and be seen specifically by him to give a more in-depth analysis..you are really going though it all alone.
