|Debra Nicolossi began her professional work experience in 1974 as a nurse, but she now dedicates herself to a holistic approach for allergies using Bioenergtic Intolerance Elimination, or BIE. Because allergies can manifest as a wide variety of symptoms, Debra tailors a unique protocol for each client.
In 2001 Debra started to experience an allergic reaction to processed wheat products. Around the time of this life-changing event, she became involved with the Westie Rescue group. It wasn’t long before one particular dog she found, Daisy, became part of her family. Shortly thereafter, Little Daisy appeared to have developed some allergies. Months later, through Westie Rescue, Debra learned about Bioenergetic Intolerance Elimination (BIE) while she was researching multiple allergy information sources. With BIE, Debra found out Daisy could be helped, and that Debra could have her allergy eliminated as well. After a few appointments she found that her body could tolerate wheat, and has not had an occurrence since! Debra was so amazed at what BIE did for her; she knew she had to share it with the world.
