Abstract

This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of the Biko Method in improving overall wellness, emotional well-being, and physical health. Participants underwent various assessments, including the Wellness IQ Quiz, AO Scan, and blood tests, at different intervals over a 6-month period. Results revealed a consistent improvement in Wellness IQ Quiz scores, indicating enhanced self-reported wellness among participants. AO Scan results showed gradual enhancements in emotional and physical health parameters post-Biko Method intervention. Additionally, blood test analyses demonstrated trends towards normalization of lymphocytes, eosinophils, neutrophils, white blood cells, red blood cells, and inflammatory and hormonal markers, indicating improvements in physical health. Furthermore, participants reported resolution of various emotional issues such as communication conflicts and self-confidence problems post-intervention, highlighting the method's positive impact on emotional well-being. Overall, these findings suggest that the Biko Method may be an effective approach for promoting holistic wellness and addressing emotional and physical health concerns.
