"We need to transition from using pharmaceuticals to finding the right balance of flora," she says. Dr. Dahlgren has found success working with the five levels of healing, a concept developed by her mentor, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD., Ph.D. The five levels, starting at the lowest level and rising, are the physical body, energetic body, mental body, dream body, and spirit body. We aren't just physical beings," she says. If there is a significant trauma in the family, it can affect epigenetics. An example would be studies that show that people who suffered through famine as children have grandchildren with a higher propensity toward certain diseases. "It isn't enough to just look at toxicity or nutrition. You must look at the entire person as a whole." Work on one level -- say, the mental body -- can penetrate down to help heal things on the level of the energetic body and the physical body. "You have to look at those lower levels... think of it as the soil off the plant. You can't start pruning the higher levels when the roots are dying." To truly treat people, the practitioner must "address the person in every way they are relating to be a human being."
