The concept behind Biological Decoding
Biological Decoding is about understanding what biological conflicts we experience when we’re under stress and how these conflicts affect our body if we’re unable to release the accumulated stress. The origins of this therapy can be found in the 5 biological laws. Biological Decoding is a complementary supportive emotional therapy, not a substitute for medical or psychological treatment.
Biological Decoding uses a direct emotional approach in order to discover biological conflicts. It’s basic to understand that before the appearance of a symptom- whether it is physical or some other type of problem- the person has experienced a biological conflict, also called Dirk Hamer Syndrome or bioshock. The biological conflict is typically an isolating, unexpected and dramatic experience which is perceived to have no solution and that is not expressed.
A symptom appears as a response to a particular necessity of the body. Each type of conflict or problem will be expressed in a specific organ, because the stress needs to be externalised. The pathologies and the limitations that we experience are not against us, on the contrary, they are elements that help us to understand the ecosystem in which we live, our symptoms help us to resolve conflicts. According to Biological Decoding, our body is always on our side.
Biological Decoding is about learning to speak the language of the body. Each symptom is a word in this language and has a function. According to the function that the symptom is fulfilling, biological decoding practitioners guide the person through their life experiences to find out when the symptom appeared as a solution to a problem experienced by the organism.
It is important to understand that emotions that are not properly processed or expressed, or that are repressed, will generate a considerable amount of stress inside our organism.
What does a Biological Decoding practitioner do?
The task of the Biological Decoding practitioner is to learn the biological language of the body in order to help people to release stress, give them new tools and help them revise the structure and the way they live life. After locating the stressful event (bioshock) the practitioner supports and guides the person through their corporal sensations so that they can connect with their own body and release the accumulated stress. When the stressful event is identified, the therapist can help the person to identify the resources needed so that self-healing can take place. It’s a biological process. Our body will tell us if we have succeeded at resolving the conflict and eliminating the stress.
Our brain can’t distinguish between events that are real, symbolic, virtual or imaginary, this means that we can process events from the past and the present and project them into the future. The Biological Decoding therapist explores the codification mechanism through which the body developed the illness so that it could help the individual to release the stress.
When the patient resolves the unfinished histories, the symptom ceases to have any reason to exist.
To sum it up, learning Biological Decoding requires the understanding of a new paradigm of illness as well as learning to give supportive integrative and holistic emotional therapy that respects the rhythm of each person and their particular needs.
Why we get ill
But, why do we get ill? Because we haven’t been able to liberate the stress generated by situations in which we experienced strong negative emotions. In addition, sometimes, when the body tries to liberate part of the stress, we try to silence it with external solutions or medication.
Illness is a natural mechanism that helps us to regain our balance. The human body is made up of around 50 trillion cells that work in a perfect synchrony without needing us to give them any instructions, whether we’re well or ill. All the cells are working together to reach a state of balance.
The Biological Decoding practitioner listens to the patient to find out how events are experienced and which situations could have generated stress. Once the stress is identified, the therapist helps to channel it respectfully, in line with the needs of our body.
Biological Decoding can tell us how the soul is crying according to the information given by the symptom.
According to Biological Decoding, which is based on the 5 biological laws, illness appears as a solution that our organism produces in a moment when a person experiences a life-changing situation. In contrast, conventional medicine searches for a causal factor that originates the illness, it considers that the illness should disappear when the causal factors are eliminated and the symptoms are treated.
Biological Decoding has a completely different concept of illness; in this case the symptoms are considered to be produced by an emotional conflict. The first Biological Law states that a symptom appears as a result of a situation of biological shock. This is an unexpected, dramatic, isolating situation, without solution and that is not expressed. This experience is conditioned by our initial programs or memory traces; this means that we react to situations according to what we’ve learnt from our previous life experiences. These past experiences can be found in our childhood, birth, pregnancy, conception or even be inherited from our ancestors.
The biological shock is like an instant in which a lightening flash hits our psyche and goes straight through our mind, our brain and our entire body. It is an instant in which the experience is so horrible that it produces total confusion, it can be almost as if the person experiencing it loses their mind for an instant.
What’s the first thing we do when we get ill? Generally, we try to get rid of the illness and eradicate the symptoms. It is natural to try to avoid discomfort. However, if you have a broken bone, for instance, you know it will take time to mend. It isn’t possible to just take a pill to accelerate the process or to try and stop it because we “don’t like it”. The challenge is understanding that when a situation of biological stress takes place, the body activates the mechanisms of natural healing. It’s about finding the meaning of our present experiences and asking ourselves if they serve a purpose, even if we don’t enjoy the experience.
Biological Decoding gives emotional support to the person who is experimenting a biological shock. In order to do so, the therapist uses the language of the organs to make a hypothesis or ask questions about the biological function involved. The right questions will awaken the emotions and the related corporal sensations. It’s the art of listening to the body.
We also take into account that humans repeat everything learned and that our current problems often originate in the past, they have an initial program (a programming emotional conflict). The origin can be found in our childhood, birth, pregnancy, conception; or even unfinished business of our ancestors from whom we copied models or “ways of living”.
We can create a different existence if we change our way of thinking.

Why we speak about biological shock instead of psychological shock
Because biological shocks are not due to psychological problems, conscious conflicts won’t generate a symptom. Biological shock situations in nature are completely real. All animals can experiment dramatic, unexpected circumstances that have no solution.
Let’s see a few examples:
CASE 1. A mouse is being chased by a cat. As he escapes, he feels that he needs more air so he can get away from the cat’s claws and save his life. As soon as the mouse feels that it needs more air or it’ll die, its lungs activate a mechanism to increase its lung capacity. When the danger has passed, the excess lung tissue that had grown disappears through an infection or turns into a cyst.
CASE 2. If an animal is suffering from lack of food, its liver will start to grow in order to better store what little nutrients it has.
CASE 3. If a mother loses her litter, she will rapidly activate her ovaries in order to reproduce again.
Most animals do not experience mourning like we do, when they have a life or death experience they develop symptoms that will help them to save their lives and survive.
As humans, we don’t just use our minds for thinking. We can use our intellect to reason, to calculate, to measure, to plan or to imagine possible outcomes to hypothetical situations. We can imagine, guess, suppose, believe… For instance, we can believe that our thoughts are real, when in fact reality is different for each one of us. In some circumstances we experiment stress due to imagined situations because for our body there is no difference between real and figurative.
When we experiment states of stress, the same as other animals, we activate our biological programs in order to survive. The responses come from the most primitive part of ourselves. Our primitive brain gives us the opportunity to solve our histories through illnesses, as a way to evacuate part of the stress experienced. The reason why this happens is purely evolutionary. Each region of the brain is in charge of responding instantly to the biological conflicts that could result in our death. In contrast, a psychological conflict is not a life or death experience for the brain.
Understanding in order to heal
The emotional states that we experiment such as bad moods, dejection or despair, eventually take their toll. We’ve all experienced a conflict and then felt ill afterwards:
- “I get angry with my mother and afterwards I have stomach ache”.
- “I don’t like my job and my back aches when I go to bed”.
- “I had a bad argument with my partner and now my throat aches and my voice is hoarse”.
- “I go to visit my parents and then I go home with a bad cold or flu”.
When we experience a conflict, our brain interprets it as a situation of danger and a high amount of stress is generated. Illness is a natural mechanism to restore the lost balance.
The characteristics of the symptom will depend on how we experience the conflict that is producing stress. If we understand the relationship between the stress and the symptom, then we’ll be able to release it and reach wellbeing.
However, in order to reach wellbeing, first we have to learn to listen to our body to know if we’re living the way we want to live. The aim of Biological Decoding is to understand in order to heal.
How do we heal our emotions?
Everything that we’ve ever lived is stored in our brain in the form of memories. We can access them rapidly by connecting with our corporal sensations and our emotions.
The primary emotions related to difficult events in our life are sadness, annoyance, resentment, anger and aggression. When we connect with the memories that trigger these emotions, we can identify emotional wounds suffered in our childhood.
From an early age we learn to see ourselves “how others see us”, listen to ourselves “how others listen”, value ourselves “how others value us”, respect ourselves “how others respect us”, to search for the recognition we learnt to expect as children.
If we haven’t felt seen, heard, valued, respected or appreciated then our self-confidence will be damaged, and therefore our capacity to react in a healthy way to similar events and situations. We’ll repeat the same behavioural patterns each time we’re under stress.
Everything that we learn, what we live and that we feel contribute to build our personality and our way of reacting to similar events. If our body has the capacity to self-regulate, then we have the capacity to transform and heal our emotions. Everything can be rebuilt, including emotional wounds.
Knowing the origin of our emotional wounds gives us the understanding that we need in order to become observers of our reactions. This allows us to step back so that we can decide on the best action to take in each situation.
Are you ready to learn to listen to your body?
Biological Decoding in NOT esoteric, spiritual, energetic or symbolic. It is purely biological and it is through listening to the body (corporal sensations) that we can connect with the conflictive events that don’t let us move forward, whether the symptoms are physical, psychological or behavioural. We are biological!
