This simple test, Biological Terrain Assessment, or BTA 2000,
costs about $150 and analyzes
small amounts of blood, urine, and saliva to provide data about the current
state of the building blocks of the body - your enzymes, amino acids, molecules,
cells, and electrons. When you know how the chemistry of your body Is
functioning, you can make lifestyle adjustments that support improvements in
health. What is exciting about this particular test is its ability to pick up
prepathological changes in the body that predispose one to bacterial and viral
infections, as well as many chronic diseases.
BTA is a powerful health screening instrument that provides valuable
biochemical information about cellular function and cellular metabolism in the
tissues, organs, and systems of the body. This includes such data as oxygen
transport, nutrient delivery, waste removal, mineral retention, cellular
absorption, and multiple metabolic chemical interactions.
More specifically, it measures the acid/base balance, the degree of oxidative
stress (how well your body is breaking down foods, and how much your body Is
being affected by toxins), and the concentration of minerals in your three body
fluids. The blood measurements are good indicators of cell function all over the
body. The saliva measurements reflect liver function very well, since most of
the saliva is lymph, and most lymph is produced in the liver. Finally, the urine
measurements reflect how well the kidneys are functioning. The kidneys filter
the blood, so whatever Is In the first morning urine represents what the body
has too much of.
In doing so, the BTA provides an understanding of your biochemistry, your
internal biological terrain. It is not diagnostic for any specific pathology or
disease states. Rather, the test data can impart objective analytical guideposts
about the lymphatics and liver systems, the kidneys, and the blood itself. It
also imparts knowledge about various bodily functions before any pathology
All of this provides valuable guidelines for the treatment of illness and the
maintenance of health. It also is an objective way to determine if the course of
your treatment is supporting or hindering progress. Remember, as the cells,
tissues, and organs of the body Improve In function, you are much more able to
think clearly and to heal. The BTA helps us monitor the improvement In your
To assure accurate BTA results, it Is very important that you follow the
Fast for 12-14 hours prior to your test. In order to do so, please complete
your dinner prior to your test no later than 7 PM the night before. After
dinner, brush your teeth. Then refrain from eating or drinking anything until
after your test.
Refrain from using any toothpaste, mouthwash, or mouth rinses both at
bedtime and on the morning of your test. Also avoid using any lipstick or
makeup around your mouth and lips. Such substances can change the chemistry of
the mouth and saliva.
On the morning of your test, obtain a sample of your first morning urine.
Try to obtain a mid-stream specimen. If you do not have a specimen cup,
thoroughly wash a glass jar and lid (in the dishwasher is best), and bring the
urine in this container instead. Some people have to get up during the night
or early morning to urinate. If this happens to you at 4 AM or later, collect
- 3 Days prior to testing- Stop taking all alkalinizing agents
- 2 Days prior to testing- Stop taking any medication; this includes
allopathic, homeopathic & isopathic remedies and supplements (vitamins,
antioxidants). Exceptions to this rule are life-supporting medicines (heart
or diabetes medications).
Describing BTA test results:
Biological Terrain practitioners clinically monitor the entire internal
biochemical environment of the body. The goal is to gain a deeper understanding
of the in-depth elements within the patients chemistry and prescribe the exact
forms of treatment to help the patients regain and maintain a healthy internal
biochemical environment. Doing so at a chemical level can then, in time,
translate vitality and health to every cell, tissue, organ and gland within the
- The specimens of blood, urine, and saliva are analyzed by a device called
a BTA S-2000, which determines the pH, resistivity, and redox values of each
of these fluids.
- These factors are the indicators of the nature and processes of the
individual's unique biochemistry, including the current status and
activities of its enzymes, amino acids and other vital building blocks of
- The pH of these fluids can indicate whether the patient's system is too
acidic or too alkaline, whether enzymatic activity in the body is occurring
properly and if digestion and absorption of vitamins, minerals and nutrients
are occurring adequately. It can also alert the health-care provider of the
presence of damaging environmental or industrial contaminants, substances
that can prove very damaging to the body's delicate chemistry.
- The oxidation-reduction values indicate the state of oxygen in the
individual's system. Because of the effects of stress, poor air and food
quality, and the lack of aerobic exercise typical of most Americans, these
values are generally much lower than they should be to sustain a healthy
body. If these values remain low for extended periods of time, the body
becomes more susceptible to illness, disease, degeneration and premature
- The three redox values that are obtained and studied give the practitioner
important information about the electron potential and movement within the
body. Such information alerts the health provider of the degree of oxidative
damage as well as the potential of vital and life-sustaining chemical
- The nine values are then analyzed and plotted by the instrument's computer
software onto a report that contains graphs and charts. The data are then
assessed by the practitioner and used as a teaching guide to share with the
Although the testing procedure does not diagnose any specific pathology or
disease states, it does serve as an analytical guide post that tremendously aids
in the overall evaluation of the patient.
Most Biological Terrain practitioners also incorporate many other forms of
objective and subjective examinations and evaluations that, coupled with BTA
S-2000 data, provide a deeper understanding of the biochemistry that is being
affected or compromised. This, in turn, enables the practitioner to
formulate a very accurate diagnosis and precise treatment protocol.
