For example: If a person struggles with low iron levels in their blood, simply giving the patient an iron, B12 or Vitamin C injection, or increasing their intrinsic factor wont always resolve the issue of continually loosing the iron, especially if the patient is intolerant to iron. The body will continue to reject the iron as well as the other vitamins or minerals that are chelated to it.
This person’s body is like a bucket with holes in it. Water poured into the bucket represents the nutrients ingested on a daily basis. How can you maintain sufficient water levels if the water leaks out as fast as you pour it into the bucket? Should we just pour at a faster rate? The obvious solution is to patch the holes in the bucket. In regards to the iron deficient person, due to iron intolerance, BIE simply “patches the holes” by enabling a person’s body to recognize the nutrients (iron), and therefore the patient should be able to retain normal iron levels.
