If the asari were able to manipulate dark energy through a manner differently than how humans, turians, krogan, etc., do it, then it would have been mentioned in the Codex somewhere. Until we hear otherwise, the only way possible for an organic species to actively manipulate dark energy is through physical exposure to element zero. There is zero evidence for the asari being able to use biotics in any other way.
They do say it.
They say it's natural...no exposure is mentioned in the codex.
That's different from how the other races, turian, humans and krogan gain the ability.
