Empowering you to a Healthier Life!
At Natural Health Consulting, computerized Bio-Energetic health evaluations are performed to help determine stresses and imbalances in the body. The resultant information enables us to make very specific suggestions to help you meet your health and wellness needs.
As a result of this innovative tool, it is now possible to much more effectively find imbalances and stresses in our client’s bodies, and advise them as to what is needed to assist them in reaching their full health potential. The Bio-Energetic Evaluation is indispensible and unparalled in its health enhancing capabilities.
To assist us with this process, we use Bio-Meridian’s Meridian Stress Assessment Professional System, This machine is the modern and technologically advanced version of earlier systems known as EDS, Electrodermal Screening or EAV, Electro-acupuncture according to Voll. Electrodermal screening has been used as a health facilitating tool and monitoring device in clinics around the world since the 1950's when it was created by German Physician, Reinhold Voll, who was also a licensed acupuncturist.
According to Eastern medicine, most notably acupuncture, energetic pathways known as meridians connect related groups of electrically sensitive areas on the skin called acupoints. Each meridian is named for the organs or tissue through which it travels. A Bio-Energetic Evaluation measures the meridian energy levels at various acupoints on the body, typically on the hands and feet. It then displays these findings on a computer screen for the practitioner. The practitioner will then determine which if any meridians are unbalanced. Further testing of any unbalanced meridians is used to discover the most beneficial remedies for improving the energetic balance of the corresponding organ or bodily system.
In the early 1950s, Dr. Reinhold Voll, a German medical doctor, developed an electronic testing device for finding acupuncture points electrically. He was successful in finding acupuncture points and demonstrating that these points, known to Chinese acupuncturists for millennia, had a different resistance to a tiny electrical current passed through the body, than did the adjacent tissues. Many other researchers have also verified that electrical conductance at the acupuncture points is significantly greater than the surrounding tissue. Voll then began a lifelong search to identify correlations between disease states and changes in the electrical resistance of the various acupuncture points. He thought that if he could identify electrical changes in certain acupuncture points associated with certain diseases, then he might be able to identify those diseases more easily, or earlier, when treatment intervention was likely to be more effective. Voll was successful in identifying many acupuncture points related to specific conditions and published a great deal of information about using acupuncture points diagnostically. (Until Voll, these points had been used mainly for treatment). He found, for example, that patients with lung cancer had abnormal readings on the acupuncture points referred to as lung points. Changes also occurred in the electrical conductance of the acupuncture points supplying musculoskeletal structures that are inflamed.
Voll discovered that certain acupuncture points showed abnormal readings when subjects were reacting allergically. He made several serendipitous discoveries related to "allergy" testing. He noted some unusual readings on certain acupuncture points when a patient had a bottle of medicine in his pocket. He could remove the bottle and consistently get different readings when the bottle was in his pocket compared to when it was not. At first he was baffled as to how a closed bottle of medicine outside the body could affect the acupuncture readings. It was even more baffling when he discovered that the glass bottle of medicine could change the readings when it was in contact anywhere along the closed electric circuit involved with the testing procedure. Voll and his colleagues then began work to identify the nature of this strange phenomena. They inserted a metal plate into the circuit and demonstrated that many substances that prelude changes in acupuncture point readings when ingested could produce the same changes when placed on the plate (even in closed glass bottles). They assumed that there must be some kind of electro-magnetic energy being emitted from the substances, and that these energy fields somehow traveled along the electric circuit to the body (perhaps like the energy waves representing a person's voice travels along the electric circuitry of a telephone line).
Voll and other scientists have conducted various experiments in an attempt to characterize the energy form that is being measured. As yet, no clear consensus of opinion exists as to exactly how this phenomenon functions. For that matter, no clear consensus exists how any electric phenomenon function. Although it used to be thought that electricity was fairly straight forward and well understood, many discoveries in the last few years have made many scientists question older theories. Robert Beck, a physicist well known for his pioneering work in various areas of electromagnetism, said the following, "Man is an extremely complex biocosmic resonator…. People ask me occasionally why this or that works and I tell them the truth, that although I'm a physicist, I don't know what electricity is. Neither does anybody else. But we can certainly build a lot of marvelous things with it, from toasters to television sets to computers. And it will be quite a few years before even the effect of some of these simple stimulation type devices are well understood, much less fully understood."
