She weaves her diverse medical knowledge together to create an unforgettable healing experience for her patients.
Recently, Dr. Babbie has been studying and researching in a field of medicine called Biontology. Biontology is based on the principle that every cell vibrates at a certain frequency. Cells in a healthy state vibrate at a coherent frequency, cells in a dis-eased or unbalanced state vibrate at chaotic frequencies. Using an instrument called the “Chiren”, she measures acupuncture meridian points and then, through the concepts of acupuncture and homeopathy, use specific frequencies of light to restore balance in the human body.
