EvecticsSM The True Sequence of Healing
EvecticsSM The True Sequence of Healing
An Entirely New Approach to Healthcare
Solving difficult health problems with natural but scientific treatment.
Dr. Billiot designed EvecticsSM to help her patients who came to her with thyroid issues, children with ADHD, women with hormone imbalances and many other health problems.

Our approach to health care may seem very in-depth, but it’s really the most natural approach.
Through lab and nervous system testing, we discover what is affecting your body and give you the tools to allow it to heal.
Here’s how it works:
- Let’s find out if you’re a good candidate for EvecticsSM treatment: Click the button below to take a health inventory. A doctor will review your information and call you for a free 10-minute phone consultation.
- If you appear to be a good match for an EvecticsSM program, you will come in for a visit and more extensive testing.
- Then, you will get started on your EvecticsSM treatment, an individual program to help you naturally with your specific problems. Your individual treatment may include lab tests for hormones, food allergies, digestive malfunctions and nutritional deficiencies. Your program brings together several possible treatment techniques, including acupressure, clinical nutrition and dietary consulting.

EvecticsSM Therapy Programs
An EvecticsSM Program
Your EvecticsSM patient program is an exact series of steps coordinating multiple therapies programmed just for you by your practitioner. Your program is based on tests, labs, history and current symptoms, examination, and evaluation of your case. Your program is updated and adjusted as often as needed to keep you making the best possible progress.
We use this approach because most of our patients are “medical failure” cases. Often these patients have tried everything both medically and alternatively and have failed to get well. It does take extra care to get these patients to respond well and recover their health.
We don’t treat patients on a “try it and see if it works” basis. As a result of our many years of experience, we have developed programs with exact, expected outcomes from each program step.
EvecticsSM Therapy Techniques
An EvecticsSM treatment program will include several different treatment techniques integrated in a custom, individual design to assist the body to heal in the most efficient and effective way possible.
EvecticsSM Core Program Components
Clinical nutrition is using exact food supplements to give the body the materials and tools it needs to rebuild cells and heal. We use close to 500 different supplements from dozens of suppliers in the US, Europe and Australia.
Autonomic Response Evaluation (ARE) Testing for Clinical Nutrition
Autonomic Response Evaluation (ARE) is an evaluation (testing) technique optimized for clinical nutrition.
A short history of ARE:
The ability to directly access information from the body’s nervous system is the basis for modern clinical nutrition. Without this testing technique, there would be no way to know what the body needs to heal itself.
ARE started with the research of Dr. George Goodheart in 1964. Dr. Goodheart (a chiropractor), developed a technique called AK (Applied Kinesiology) using a previously-unknown method of nervous system testing based on a muscle reflex response to physical stress.
Shortly thereafter, other practitioners developed a system of reflex points based on Chinese acupuncture. These were used in conjunction with Dr. Goodheart’s muscle reflex testing technique.
Nutritional protocols were developed by several pioneering researchers that worked with the reflex point testing, and Clinical Nutrition was born!
Dr. Melodie Billiot, after studying the previous works on this type of testing, developed an advanced evaluation technique called Autonomic Reflex Evaluation (ARE). Dr. Billiot currently teaches this technique to chiropractors, medical doctors, acupuncturists and naturopaths as well as using it in EvecticsSM therapies in her own clinic.
Dietary & Lifestyle Recommendations
Dietary recommendations advice is specific to the patient; one diet doesn’t fit all. Our recommendations are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle and are based on education rather than lists of do’s and do don’ts. We work with patients on a step-by-step basis as little or as much as necessary to bring about a healthy enough diet to allow our treatment programs to work.
Do you have sugar, carb or junk food cravings that run your life? We have effective solutions, including specific therapies, that can reduce or eliminate cravings.
Functional Lab Testing
Lab testing is integrated into our treatment programs and is used to obtain specific information in areas where other evaluation techniques would be less accurate. Labs supply context to ARE testing and quantify healing. Symptoms are a very poor indication of improved health, but normalized labs show a patient is stable and recovered.
A unique benefit to EvecticsSM programs is the ability to use ARE testing to determine areas of most stress in the body PRIOR to ordering labs. Labs are ordered only when we already know that the area being tested is stressed, not to find out whether or not the stress exists. This allows a minimum of labs to be ordered.
- Saliva labs are used for hormone testing to measure unbound hormone levels. This is important when working with the body nutritionally instead of with drugs. Most commonly, we test for adrenal and sex hormones using this method.
- Tissue Mineral Analysis from a hair sample is used to broadly see stress levels on most organs of the body. This is accomplished by testing for trace mineral ratios. This lab also shows mineral deficiencies and heavy metal levels.
- Blood labs are used for many areas, such as blood sugar, thyroid hormones, lipids, vitamins, inflammation, etc.
- Allergy labs show food and environmental sensitivities using antibodies in the blood.
- Stool labs are used for very specific GI problems where bacteria, fungus or parasite stress is suspected. We also use stool labs for quantifying heavy metal toxicity.
EvecticsSM Acupressure Program Components
Acupressure: Systems Desensitization Technique (SDT)
Systems Desensitization Technique (SDT) is a method of assisting the body to desensitize itself of allergies and other issues that block nervous system communication channels. The technique is based on acupressure using a “cold” laser to stimulate acupuncture points on the body during the therapy. The therapy is completely non-invasive, involves no discomfort and minimal reactions. Our theory of allergies and sensitivities is that some bodies misidentify substances that are harmless as toxic, or tiny amounts of toxic substances as overwhelming.
SDT assists the body to reevaluate these substances and stop the mis-identification. The most common symptoms of patients we have tested as having allergies are inflammation of all kinds, joint pain, brain fog (concentration, memory and mental lethargy), fatigue, digestive problems, hormone problems and immune issues. Allergies are commonly found with children who have behavior and learning problems and in such diverse issues as bed wetting. With some help in eliminating allergies, patients have often recovered from even seemingly unrelated problems such as menstrual, thyroid, weight and even blood pressure.
Acupressure: Systems Balancing Technique (SBT)
Systems Balancing Technique (SBT) is a method of helping the body to recover from the effects of very specific toxins that can block or alter communication in the hormone and nervous systems. This is an acupressure technique (we use mechanical pressure and “cold” laser to stimulate acupuncture points). SBT has protocols to help the body repair itself from specific toxic issues:
- Adrenal Energy
- Thyroid Energy
- Kidney/Fluid Balance
- Blood Sugar
Patients are treated using SBT when evaluation tests that the body has become imbalanced by toxins such as metals, viruses, bacteria, fungi, endocrine disruptors, solvents, medication and dental material residues, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, toxic chemicals, etc. By bringing the body’s attention to the interaction of an exact location with an exact toxin, we assist it to compensate and re-balance the area.
Heart Rate Variability Testing
Heart Rate Variability testing is computer evaluation of the autonomic nervous system to determine how well your body is functioning and its capacity to heal. We also use this test to screen for neurological abnormalities that can prolong or prevent the body from healing itself. Because this test is non-invasive, takes only 10 minutes and is very inexpensive to run, we use it extensively as an objective measure of patient progress.
