Dr. Verigin’s Comment: The Route to Healing: A Primer, Part 2
Different symptoms flourish in different environments – just as oaks, cacti and ferns, for instance, flourish in different environments. A fern needs specific soil, minerals, humidity, temperature and climate that would never sustain healthy cacti. If those conditions were to change radically, the fern would become diseased or die.
Likewise, if the body’s internal environment – the terrain – becomes disturbed, causing dis-regulation, it will become ill or die. The specific kind and progression of illness depend on the specific disturbances in the terrain.
We can define “health,” then, as the condition in which a human being has a well-ordered and well-functioning biological terrain.
Knowing the state of the terrain, we can identify bioenergetically specific therapies to improve it and support auto-regulation.

Now meet the dentist who says that you don’t need to floss.
