the abbreviated term for Reams' Biological
Theory of Ionization. RBTI is a working
explanation of the fundamental ionic
energy composition and function of biological
life. This theory was discovered, developed
and proven through the unique work of
agronomist, biochemist and mathematician
Dr. Carey A. Reams beginning in the 1930s.
is RBTI testing?
testing is a non-invasive seven-part
test completed on fresh samples of urine
and saliva. There are six tests done
on the urine sample: total carbohydrate,
pH, conductivity, cell debris, nitrate
nitrogen & ammonia nitrogen. There
is one test done on the saliva sample,
which is the pH.
The test results, when representing perfect
health, would look like the numbers in
the figure above. Note: To be valid and
individualized, the test results must
be accompanied by at least the gender,
age, height and weight of the individual.
long will it take to run the tests?
usually take between 10 to 15 minutes
to run the seven tests. Running the
tests is not what takes the time.
What takes the time and expertise
is interpreting the test data correctly,
followed with establishing individualized
recommendations and providing a detailed
explanation to the client. Be sure
to ask questions for clarity!
is the RBTI analysis so valuable?
It is a true real-time mathematical
analysis of what is taking place
within the electro-biochemical structure
of the human body's cells,
tissues and organs. It reveals the
intricate cause and effect of the
physiological dysfunctional patterns
demonstrated through the urine and
saliva analysis. The individual,
being analyzed, may or may not be
aware of the dysfunctions that
the tests may demonstrate.
More importantly, the RBTI analysis
will reveal a perfect life-style program
each individual must follow to reverse
the dysfunctional patterns that RBTI
has disclosed. For example, the analysis

etc.) to use and which to

RBTI used to treat illness?
RBTI is not for diagnosing or
treating medical illness. If you are
seeking diagnosis and treatment for a
medical condition you need to seek the
services of a licensed medical doctor
The purpose of RBTI is to analyze and
identify previously unrecognized electro-biochemical
dysfunctions, taking place within the
human body, thereby allowing the creation
of a perfect set of personal diet and life-style
recommendations that will address and
reverse those RBTI recognized dysfunctional
patterns. RBTI, when correctly applied,
offers the highest potential for perfect
often should one be tested?
This depends on the analysis
of the test results. If the analysis
reveals severe dysfunctional patterns
you may have to return for more frequent
re-evaluations, even as much as once
or twice per week. If the analysis
reveals a need for a general tune-up
only, indicating minor changes, then
one may not be scheduled to return
for several weeks after implementing
their personal RBTI lifestyle program.
The determination for how frequently
one is analyzed depends totally on
the information the test reveals that
being unique for each individual.
a person do some of the tests at home?
certainly possible that your RBTI analyst
may have you do some tests at home
in between the testing they do. For
example, your RBTI analyst may have
you keep a pH diary, at home, to help
establish how much your pH is fluctuating
during the day or night. Your analyst
will supply you with the necessary
pH test strips and instructions. It
is also possible that your analyst
may have you do
some urine carbohydrate
testing, at home, using a refractometer.
Although this is less common than the
home pH testing, nevertheless, it is
a test that can be done by you to help
the analyst determine the best set
RBTI analysts use other tests?
The RBTI test, as stated earlier,
consists of seven noninvasive tests
done on a fresh sample of urine and
saliva. There are no other tests that
are done on the urine and saliva samples.
Blood testing is not a part of the
RBTI tests. It is very common, however,
to have all your vital signs, such
as blood pressure, temperature, pulse
and respiration, determined by the
RBTI health professional.
one bring their urine and saliva sample
Once a sample of urine is voided,
there is only a small window of time
during which the tests can be performed
and still be accurate. Thus, it is
not recommended that one bring their
urine and saliva samples from home.
type of program will the RBTI analyst
All programs are unique and
individualized because no two people
will have the same test results. All
programs do contain recommendations
that may touch all aspects of each
person’s life-style. What is
a life-style? A life-style involves
every aspect of ones living habits,
and can best be described as comprising: all
that you eat, breathe, drink, think
and do. Remember, wellness involves
more than food and drink, since true
wellness involves wholeness, even one’s
state of mind.
there any special instructions one needs
before they submit a urine and saliva
sample for testing?
Yes, there are some important
instructions that need to be followed
to assure that the tests are as accurate
sure that you have had nothing
to eat 90 minutes before
obtaining your urine and
all gum, candy or breath
mints in your mouth 90 minutes
before obtaining your saliva
driving long distances to
the destination where you
are being tested. If you
need to travel any extensive
(more than nearby) distance
before being tested, go the
day before and stay in a
motel so that you are rested.
Holding urine in the bladder
for too long can affect the
tests accuracy, as well.
not change your life-style
routine before being tested.
For example, if you take
food supplements, continue
to take them. If you take
medications, continue to
take them. In other words,
adhere to your regular patterns
of lifestyle, including all
eating, drinking and exercising
etc. before being tested.
not fast before being tested.
Eat your regular meals at
the regular times, as you
purpose of these instructions
is to make sure that your
body is under its typical
daily lifestyle load and
routine, reflecting all causes
and their effects, for better
or worse, to be revealed
through the test analysis.
long will one be on the RBTI
The RBTI program addresses a “whole” life-style.
It is not just a quick fix. The cause
of all the dysfunctional and degenerative
patterns, that the RBTI analysis reveals,
is a result of life-style habits causing
the body to miss receiving vital food
mineral energy and thus depleting its
reserve-mineral energy too fast. In other
words, the body is aging too rapidly.
However, the body is able, with proper
care and feeding, to reverse these health-destroying
dysfunctions that may be taking place,
through the proper application of RBTI
principles and techniques. However, if
one does not continue to follow their
RBTI recommendations on an ongoing basis,
the probability of the dysfunctional
chemistry, continuing or reoccurring,
is very real. It is up to the individual
to determine how important it is to live
and be well.
if one does not return for follow-up
It is vital that one follow
their analyst’s recommendations
for retesting. The analysis reveals
how closely the chemistry must be monitored
for the best results. One set of recommendations
from one test will not reverse a lifetime
of dysfunction. Getting one analysis
and program recommendation, without
the proper follow-up, is absolutely
not recommended. The only way RBTI
will accomplish health and wellness
is with commitment, cooperation and
follow-through of the individual with
the health professional.
is the best way to learn the science
and application of RBTI ?
The best way to begin your study
of RBTI, as applied to human health,
is to obtain a copy of Dr. Beddoe's
new 2008 RBTI
as it is applied to human body chemistry (Biologic
Ionization as Applied to Human Nutrition,
The study of the first 10 chapters
prepares you to attend an RBTI Level
I seminar. Since the laws of the
science of RBTI are universal, and
thus apply to the electrochemistry
of soil, plants, animals, as well
as humans, Dr. Beddoe also recommends
the reading and study of the first
five to six chapters of Dr. Beddoe's
backyard garden book on RBTI, Nourishment
Home Grown in preparation
for attending the series of human
seminars as well. The companion RBTI
ag text Biologic
Ionization as Applied to Farm and
Soil Management is replete
in covering a more in-depth study
of RBTI soil and plant science. RBTI
soil and plant laws and principles
are often experienced as versions,
of these same laws and principles
RBTI, in a simpler format. Many students
have expressed how an understanding
of the basic RBTI soil and plant
concepts greatly enhanced, and made
easier, their understanding of the

Dr. Beddoe recommends a reading and
study of the rest of the human text

attend RBTI Level III and IV. Once
you have accomplished Levels I through
IV, you will have only completed
the RBTI basics.

I learn RBTI without attending
believe that if one is serious
about learning RBTI for any
reason, there is no substitute
for attending Advanced Ideals
Institute's RBTI Basic Seminars
and Live Study Groups. RBTI
is not a science to be taken
lightly. It is complex and
takes serious study, but is
very learnable for the individual
dedicated to that end. Be aware
of the blind leading the blind
when it comes to learning RBTI.
Since there never has been
a formal instructor certification
procedure, anyone can claim
to be an RBTI instructor as
well as claim association with
Dr. Reams as though that makes
them a qualified RBTI mentor.
RBTI is a science and is not
opinion-driven. No amount of
discussion among untrained
individuals can arrive at correct
and factual answers. For example,
2 + 2 is 4 --- no amount of
discussion and opinion can
change that fact --- so it
is with learning the science
of RBTI. In addition, please

is Advanced Ideals Institute
the best place to study
and learn RBTI?
Beddoe studied directly
with Dr. Carey Reams
over a 10 year period
until Reams' death
in 1985. Dr. Beddoe
completed both manuscripts
of his textbooks on
RBTI applications in
chemistry and human
chemistry, which Dr.
Reams reviewed and
approved between 1984
and his death. Dr.
Reams personally acknowledged
and approved these
textbooks written by
Dr. Beddoe and referred
to them as "a
stroke of genius."
Reams also considered
Dr. Beddoe as the
only one of his students
capable of properly
carrying on his work.
This is substantiated
in a letter Dr. Reams
wrote to Dr. Beddoe before his passing.
In that 1985 letter
Reams stated: "I
feel like you are
the only one who
has the ability to
do the job well.

Here is what we mean.
To understand RBTI
properly, is to know
that it is the only
science that has mathematically
defined what perfect
health means in plants,
animals and humans.
It is the only science
that actually addresses
the real cause of dis-ease
through defining what
perfect health is.
RBTI goes way beyond
the "normal" health
that has been assumed
to be healthy. The
mathematical and frequency
parameters of RBTI
reveal many "normal" health
standards as dis-ease
standards. Thus, any
modality of health
evaluation or therapy,
no matter how natural,
if it does not reference
the perfect health
standards of cause
and effect established
by RBTI, that modality
is only addressing
effects and not causes.
To address only the
effect means that the
therapist is not going
beyond "normal" health
standards --- dis-ease.
Unless, a health therapist
truly understands and
applies RBTI correctly,
that therapist will
ever only address the
symptom of dis-ease
