We all use biofeedback all the time, we look at the scales.... register our weight... and think about adjusting our diet. We feel our clothes are tight, and then make a decision accordingly. We look at the weather outside and the forecast, and choose what to wear and our days activities. I am sure you can think of many other examples.
Other examples of biofeedback could be feeling angry after something has upset you, feeling nauseas after eating a meal that disagreed with you, suffering digestive problems after travelling on holiday. With these types of situations, you feel discomfort and find the solution to your problem.
Biofeedback therapy is a wonderful system that can be used to treat a vast array of problems. I use the LIFE biofeedback system. The system helps identify underlying patterns and weaknesses that are stopping you from reaching your true health or performance potential. It tests for thousands of factors, including homeopathic remedies, cell calts, food reactivity, bacteria, viruses, fungi, parasites, emotions, meridian imbalances and so much more.
It is a wonderful way to help you identify and rebalance problems that you know are there, but can not quite identify the cause .... or the solution.
Treatments last between 1 to 1 and 1/2 hours and cost £60.00 for a treatment. This includes a biofeed back frequency to take home with you if one is needed. If you are already a client, you can try the system once for the price of a follow up homeopathic appointment (£45.00). As a thank you to my clients, if you are impressed with the treatments you receive, and share the news with friends and family, I will give both you (the referrer) and your family / friend (the referee) and special discount on their first appointment - 25% of a full biofeedback appointment and treatment fee (so £45 instead of £60). That is quite a discount!!!
For treatments for clients who attend the clinic, either a headband monitor, or wrist strap monitors are worn whilst the test takes place. I then ask questions and feedback information about the very subtle reactions that are taking place.
I also offer distance biofeedback work. For this I will need a sample of hair of the client to be tested and will either speak on the phone / via Skype whilst I am running the tests. I will then post a frequency out to the client to help correct the imbalances.
Tests can be run for nutritional imbalances, food sensitivities, emotional problems, allergies, personal goals and performance achievements, weight management, addictions, digestive disturbances, respiratory problems, and so much more.
I will be adding more information about the system along with some testimonials in due course - in the mean time, if you are interested in a treatment, please do get in touch for a free 15 minute chat on how the treatment could help you.
I look forward to speaking with you soon :)

HOW TEST MEASUREMENTS ARE MADE
Information exchange is available via the harness system attached to the forehead, ankles and wrists. The harnesses are made of special conductive silicone, which allows for very low- current electrical communication through the computer’s USB port and a multi-functional interface box.
During the testing/assessment phase a client’s biofeedback response is measured in response to nearly 7,000 separate items in 39 separate categories. This process takes approximately 4 to 7 minutes depending upon the speed of the computer. The computer calculates an average value of response between 0 and 2000, which results in a list defining the individual’s reactions or stress potentials. The greatest energy disturbances will be recorded and displayed at the top of the list. Each substance has its own distinctive, complex waveform, which is graphically viewed and represented by a unique fractal image. Additionally, the test matrix contains a detailed description of each substance.
HOW THE L.I.F.E. BIOFEEDBACK SYSTEM WORKS
L.I.F.E. System – Technical Information
The measurement made by the L.I.F.E. System is based upon the relationship between “action & reaction” by applying a challenge to the patient (“action”) and measuring the reaction of the human body as it answers the challenge (“reaction”).
The basic principle of the mode of action of the L.I.F.E. System device is the following: The L.I.F.E. System device sends a square wave signal with amplitude of 5 volts, and a duty cycle of 50% to the harness. The frequency to be applied, for determination of our test, is about 47.3 kHz. The measurement current throughout the body is limited to a maximum of 10mA, but usually no more than 5mA or less.
Figure 1 shows the applied signal, without the harness being in contact with the human body.
Figure 1: Square wave signal with no harness in contact with the human body
When the harness is in contact with the human body, a significant change (deformation) of the signal can be detected. Figure 2 shows the respective signals (but on a different time scale to underline the changes)
Figure 2: Superimposition of the signal without harness being applied to the human body (red signal) and with electrodes being applied to the human body (blue signal).
As can be seen from the superimposition of the signals, there is a significant difference in the shapes of the signals. The detection of the signal is realized by the L.I.F.E. System device in a binary way – the part of the signal being placed in the upper half of the square wave signal is detected, the lower part of the square wave signal is ignored. Therefore, the different shapes of the signals (electrodes applied to a patient and no electrodes applied to the patient) result in time differences ΔT1 and ΔT2 before half of the amplitude is passed. These time differences resulting from the different shapes of the signals are detected by the L.I.F.E. System device.
When applying the same methodology to a patient suffering from a particular imbalance, again a signal will be detected. But as the situation in the body of the patient is different due to the imbalance, the shape of the signal to be detected is different, and it can be seen that this signal is less steep in the case of imbalance. This difference in signal shapes results in other time differences Δt1 and Δt2, which are characteristic for a particular imbalance.
Figure 3 shows the signal obtained in the case of such an imbalance
Figure 3: Superimposition of the Signal obtained from a patient suffering from a particular imbalance (blue signal) and the signal obtained when harness is not applied to the human body (red signal)
However, it must be pointed out that the results obtained by the L.I.F.E. System device can only give hints to physical states in which the presence of a particular imbalance is likely. The final diagnosis must be confirmed by other methodologies such as X-ray or MRI in any case.
The basic principle of the L.I.F.E. System device is to measure these time differences of the respective signals and to achieve a statistical evaluation based on a mathematical algorithm. The results obtained are compared with data which are archived in a data base.
Figure 4: Basic work flow for the evaluation of data obtained
The mathematical calculation algorithm takes input information on the one hand, which is stored in the Element database, and on the other hand the digitized measurement data, belonging to the element. After quantifying the values, artefacts (like disturbances caused by EMC, movements, etc.) are removed. The cleaned data is sampled, and after that, the correlation is calculated. This leads to the desired reactivity value providing the results of reactivity testing relative to the given element.
It can be claimed that when the situation inside the human body is disturbed due to a particular imbalance, the physical situation will become different. Any abnormal condition can be considered as a kind of imbalance, it can be easily seen that the temperature inside the area of interest is different. As a consequence, the shape of the signal that is detected will differ from the one measured in a non-conditional situation. The differences can be measured easily by detecting the time difference, as described above, and those time differences are characteristic for the respective situations. Evidence that they can be measured and detected was given by the outcome of the clinical investigation.
Literature describing the effectiveness of the L.I.F.E. System device.
Literature in peer reviewed journals describing the mode of action and effectiveness of the L.I.F.E. System was not available prior to the development of the L.I.F.E. System. Consequently, a clinical investigation giving evidence to the effectiveness was undertaken in 2006. The complete documentation and the results had already been submitted to and approved for European Class 2-A Certification.

"Even though i watched something upsetting i feel nothing but love. And also things that scared me, like really scarey horror films dont scare me. I have been calm, collected and happy since i saw you Dawn Waterhouse, Natural Health for treatment. Lots of other positive things but those 2 have really pointed themselves out because it was so unusual!
I have been headache-free for 2 days after 8 weeks of them everyday as well so im well impressed Thanks Dawn Waterhouse!"
