What is BioSET® ?


BioSET® (Bioenergetic Sensitivity and Enzyme Therapy) is an innovative healing system founded by Dr. Ellen Cutler, D.C., that incorporates acupressure, energy medicine, immunology, enzyme therapy, and nutrition to assist the body's natural healing process.

The success of BioSET® lies in its ability to help heal the person at the root of the problem where it began.




How Does BioSET® Work?

To understand how BioSET® works, it is useful to think of the body as an organism through which electromagnetic energy flows along invisible pathways. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the electromagnetic energy in our bodies, called Qi (chee), manifests as lines of force, or meridians. These meridians run near the surface of the body and pass into our internal organs. The amount of energy that runs through these meridians can be measured and recorded. This can be done either through muscle testing or with a device that measures the electrical properties of acupuncture points along the meridians. These examinations indicate whether the meridians are balanced, stressed, weakened or blocked. BioSET® uses tools drawn from acupuncture, chiropractic and kinesiology to locate and remove blockages in electromagnetic pathways that are specifically related to allergens.

Allergens in one's body produce toxins that are released and can be stored in any organ, system, gland, under the skin, or in the fat tissue. One of the most common allergies is to a food. Almost 80%-100% of the time, the person is allergic to food. Symptoms of food allergies often consist of "craving" the particular food. This also applies to an affinity for a particular "smell" for example: motor oil, gas, benzene, trichloroethylene, other chemicals or cleaning products.

Symptoms can occur every day at the same time, whether fatigue, a minor headache or a feeling of irritability. They might very well be a result of that “well-balanced” breakfast you ate. Was it the coffee, milk, orange juice, whole-wheat bread or a combination of all of them?

Three Basic Treatments

The BioSET® System employs three basic treatments: organ-specific detoxification, enzyme therapy, and desensitization.

  • Organ-specific detoxification: Stimulates the release of accumulated toxins from organs and tissues and promotes elimination from the body through the use of homeopathies.
  • Enzyme therapy: Facilitates good digestion and a healthful inflammatory response to correct nutritional deficiencies and other systemic imbalances through the therapeutic use of vegetarian enzyme supplements.
  • Sensitivity desensitization: Bioenergetic evaluation of organ stress and nutritional status followed by the elimination of allergic responses and sensitivities through a revolutionary, noninvasive technique based on acupressure meridians and immunology.

Correcting the Energy Flow

As we are taught in basic biochemistry, all substances, living and non-living, emit energy. Atoms attract and repel one another, building molecules and more complex structures, all while creating energy frequencies that interact in positive and negative ways. When frequencies are dissonant, a block or weakness occurs resulting in symptoms associated with increased, decreased or irregular reactivity. BioSET® corrects the energy flow with enzyme therapy, homeopathic remedies and desensitization, clearing the blockage and resetting the nervous and immune systems.

This innovative BioSET® desensitization technique releases the blockage and resets the nervous and immune systems. This process is called "clearing.” Clearing for a specific sensitivity helps to rebalance the immune response resulting in a marked decrease or complete resolution of symptoms. BioSET® practitioners use muscle testing or electro-dermal screening to determine what is the sensitivity or blockage, how severe the blockage is and where in the body the reactivity is taking place.

By activating specific acupressure points via utilization of the nervous system along the spine, the BioSET® practitioner is then able to "clear” the blockage, and thereby clear the sensitivity. Once "cleared” of a specific sensitivity using the BioSET® method of desensitization, the physical symptoms associated with the sensitivity, such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, headache, and difficulty breathing, will be reduced or resolved, often permanently.





Food and other "hidden" allergies, including low sensitivities, rank among the most common chronic medical conditions, affecting millions of people worldwide. Many people do not even know they have allergies because their symptoms appear in the form of other maladies such as sinusitis, headaches, digestive disorders, asthma, hyperactivity, chronic fatigue and even chronic depression. Essentially, an allergic response is caused when these pathways are blocked by the immune response to an allergen and the normal flow of energy through the body’s electrical circuit is disrupted.

Addressing the root cause

BioSET®’s success lies in the fact that it helps heal the person at the root cause of the individual’s problem. Individuals who suffer from chronic conditions are usually imbalanced in their digestive tract or immune response. They often have toxicity or inability to adequately deal with their toxic load, or have abnormal reactions to items, such as foods, environmental chemicals or pathogens. Because they are reactive, their immune system becomes overloaded by simply fighting off everyday sensitivities. The result is that:

  • These individuals have little immune support available to fend off real threats, such as bacterial, viral or parasitic infections.
  • Their system becomes chaotic and weakened.
  • Chronic disease or chronic symptoms become or remain established.
  • Vital organ systems, which rely on proteins, carbohydrates and fatty acids for their proper functioning, are effectively undernourished.

After clearing for food, chemical and environmental sensitivities, most individuals experience marked improvement in both their physical and emotional well being.

BioSET® is the answer to the myriad of health challenges that healthcare practitioners encounter in their daily practices. It utilizes advanced techniques, sound nutrition, purification and enzyme therapy for prolonged optimal digestive health and nutrient utilization.
