"Based on theories and equipment developed in German Electro-acupuncture by Doctors Schimmel and Voll and the pioneer work done in Japan on energy mapping by Dr. Yoshiaki Omura, Neural Muscular Circuit Testing was further developed and shown to be reproducible through the work of Dr. M. Van Benschotten. This system is used to identify areas of weakness in the body and to confirm a Chinese medical diagnosis."

"It is important for the therapist to know the anamnesis of the aging patient. I consider this to be of more importance than it should be for younger patients who are ill, as there are fewer psychophysical compensation possibilities during the aging phase. Making a geriatric anamnesis requires patience, time and understanding.

"In this connection I would like to mention that in my surgery I try to use the electro-acupuncture method according to Voll to make a diagnosis and make tests to determine each individual therapy."

Acupuncturist Peter Lok CMD; CAFC; RT; RNC of London, Ontario, Canada, has an interesting article on "Scientific Advances In Acupuncture"

"The question of the existence of acupuncture loci and meridians has been answered by many workers in many countries. The story begins with Nakatani of Kyoto University in 1950. Prior to that time, the Meridians doctrine of Chinese medicine had been a subject of great debate in Japan. Nakatani, then a medical student at Kyoto, undertook to study the problem of meridians and devised a simple method of measuring skin resistance. He discovered that on the skin there were a series of points at which the resistance was lower than the surrounding area. This effect was particularly manifest in the unhealthy state.

"A quite similar event took place in Germany in 1953 when Reinhold Voll began to study electroacupuncture to such a refined stage that it can perform diagnosis and therapy with great precision."

[WWW gif]Emotional Freedom Techniques
Uses Reinhold Voll, M.D.’s theories to help explain Touch And Breathe therapy.

"The pioneering work of Reinhold Voll, M.D. revealed that acupuncture points show a dramatic decrease in electrical resistance on the skin compared to non-acupuncture points on the body. In addition, Voll and his colleagues found that each acupoint seemed to have a standard measurement for individuals in good health, and notable changes when health deteriorated (Voll, 1975). Becker (1990, 1985) reasoned from his research that not only does an electrical current flow along the meridians, but that the acupoints functioned as amplifiers which boost the electrical signals as they move across the body.

"More recently, the research and theories of Stanford University’s Professor Emeritus in Physics, William A. Tiller (1997), have shed more light on the interplay among mind, body, spirit and subtle energies. His work is particularly relevant to the applicability of Touch And Breathe; for use with meridian based psychotherapies. Considering the complex array of electrical and electromagnetic circuitry in and around the body, Tiller theorizes that." the body can be thought of as a type of transmitting / receiving antenna."

"...avoiding sugar and additives is a good first step. I also advise testing for food sensitivities; conventional allergy tests don’t adequately test for these. Find someone who uses a VEGA test for an antibody food panel test. (VEGA testing, unlike traditional &';scratch’ allergy tests, uses an electrical circuit instead of your body’s immune system to test for allergies to vitamins, foods or drugs.) "

"’We immunize everybody, but the question should be how to do it without creating all the side effects,’ says Harold Whitcomb, M.D., an internist of 45 years’s medical experience, now practicing in Aspen, Colorado. ’It’s time we got more sophisticated in our approach.’ Dr. Whitcomb finds that sophistication in the use of a diagnostic technique called electrodermal screening (EDS). This is a way of determining in advance how a child is likely to react to a vaccine and, therefore, whether it is advisable to give the immunization at all. ’I do this with all the young children I see,’ he reports."

"Interview with Richard Gerber- New choices for healing ourselves by Edward Brown"

"SI: Yes, I was fascinated by the discussion in your book on the Voll electroacupuncture technique.

RG: One of the problems with the existing medical system is that we are so problem oriented that when a person has a very subtle illness, it’s very hard to pick up with conventional blood testing. The electroacupuncture diagnostic system is capable of reaching a very subtle level of diagnosis that is extremely impressive.

The electroacupuncture system was compared with RAST blood allergy testing and showed good agreement in identifying allergic sensitivities. That’s the kind of testing we need to do. However, I think the electroacupuncture system goes way beyond what we can pick up with conventional blood tests. The acupuncture meridian system appears to be the interface between the physical body and the higher energy control systems.

So you can not only pick up a disturbance that’s at the physical level, you can actually pick it up at the subtle energetic level before it is even manifest as illness."

"The MRM is similar to a VEGA machine, and others of its type, but rather than measuring galvanic skin response, it measures nerve conduction time, or velocity. It does not employ a probe, nor is there any pressure or moisture to take into account. Hence, there are fewer possibilities for error or inaccuracy. As far as we can tell there is also no operator transference."

[WWW gif] Rheumatoid Arthritis The Many Layers to Wellness
by Perry A. Chapdelaine, Sr. An article from The Arthritis Trust of America. The author found Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll useful in detecting his health problems.

"Only 10% of those infected in the gums will have sore or sensitive gums, and will ever suspect that something is wrong.

"I had all of my teeth removed 50 years ago, and I argued loud and long with those who insisted that I have my teeth checked for a focus of infection. After all, I had no root canals performed, and my gums felt normal! Burton Goldberg (Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide) insisted, and so more to oblige him than because I believed, I had several non-invasive tests made, and two blood tests.

"Two kinds of non-invasive tests are effective in making such a determination: (1) kinesthiology, or (2) a Computron, or Dermatron (Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll), a device that sends a small amount of current along an acupuncture meridian and, by reading the resulting effect, one can determine if foreign invaders are involved, often what species.

"Each blood test confirmed the presence of a mycoplasma, one also inferring the presence of an associated virus.

"When I finally placed myself under the care of a biological dentist, his Computron reported that I had the presence of both a mycoplasma and a virus throughout my upper and lower gums, also naming the organism's species.

"I still did not believe or accept, but I did permit the cutting of a small portion of my gums as a final determination.

Lo! A greyish mass was present. We found this evidence of infestation, throughout the top and bottom along my whole gum line -- a fifty year-long unsuspected focus of infection. These were laser sterilized and cleansed with hydrogen peroxide injections. "

[WWW gif]Anxiety and depression. Skip the Valium, Hold the Prozac

" Mood, behavior, and brain biochemistry are intricately linked. Depression and anxiety may be the result of flawed message-sending in the biochemical brain, flawed because key brain chemicals called neurotransmitters are in short supply. They're short because the body's amino acid pool (from which they're made) is itself low. For example, deficiencies in the amino acid GABA are strongly correlated with states of anxiety. Add to this the negative effect of high levels of heavy metals commonly found in the body. Aluminum, mercury, lead, and copper can make the body toxic, interfere with brain function, and contribute to depression and anxiety, say Whitcomb and Bronson.... After conducting a thorough interview with the patient, Bronson and Whitcomb use electro-dermal screening to find out more detailed biochemical information about the patient's health, nutrient needs, possible heavy metal toxicity, and the presence of food allergies that affect the brain.

"As with fluoridation, homeopaths find that some people are more sensitive to certain metals. Since dentists generally recognize this fact also, the most practical way to deal with it is for dentists to test the bio-compatibility of various types of fillings before placing them in a person's mouth. Certain recognized immunological tests can be used, though they are expensive. Some dentists have found that new electroacupuncture machines are able to assess subtle but measurable changes in the meridian energy which acupuncturists feel can determine hypersensitivity. (26) Although this new technology may hold promise, its accuracy is presently undetermined."

a. Meridian testing: Readings are interpreted in indicate strength of specific meridians, organ strength or physiologic function.
b. Remedy testing: Variations in readings are interpreted when remedies are given to the patient either orally, to hold or put on a "testing plate" wired to the electrodiagnostic equipment. Interpretations may include sensitivities, nutritional enhancement, or improved function.
c. Energy medicines: Electrodiagnostic equipment interprets information and manufactures an energy medicine which is given to the patient to take orally."
