The Quantum Zone System was developed to help people to break down everyday stress, to achieve perfect regeneration every day and – very importantly – to support the body in clearing energy blockages. Eight recognised forms of therapy, ranging from music and relaxation therapy to notes, tonal and vibration therapy and on to magnetic resonance therapy, micro massage and far infrared heat radiation have been combined in a single wellness system, the Quantum Zone (Q.Z) System. The action of each individual component can be proved scientifically using recognised diagnostics systems.
The science of acupuncture from Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on energy flows within the meridians. It is both scientifically known and recognised that the individual is made up of functional circuits that communicate with one another. There are 72 meridians, including 12 principal meridians, located on the left and right sides of the body and forming the energy channels of the body.
If no problems are present, energy flows unimpeded through these meridians and thus supplies energy to all the functional circuits of the body; the individual is healthy. If the flow stagnates in one of the energy pathways then symptoms will develop in the long term.
Over the centuries, the Chinese have used subjective methods, such as eye-reading diagnosis or feeling the pulse, to determine the status of the organs, functional circuits and meridians.
In our western cultures, we prefer to use objective measuring methods for diagnosis.
The Q.Z System meridian and energy status measuring system is a bridge between the intuitive “feeling” of energy and our rational, anatomical philosophy.
Measuring the meridians can be used to create a picture of the energy status of the body painlessly. The Q.Z System measures skin resistance at the starting and endpoints of the classical meridians. A computer program is used to calculate the energy status of the body and to illustrate blockages and weak points in diagram form.
By taking a measurement both before and after use, the effect – the way in which Q.Z System causes vital energy to flow once more – can be demonstrated graphically. This allows the change in your energy status can be ascertained very accurately and your individual requirements can thus be targeted very specifically.
Q.Z System is a unique combination of Chinese knowledge going back 5,000 years and up-to-the-minute computer technology. A measurement can therefore determine the energy status of your body, and any energy imbalances and interference fields can be detected, together with blockages that may be caused by scar tissue, stress or mental problems. The results of the measurement allow a program to be devised that is adjusted to the individual user and also allow the efficacy to be observed.
The measurement method is non-invasive; the procedure is totally painless and lasts only about 20 minutes.
Quantum Zone – functional diagnostics and energy status measurement – space technology
In 1993 and 1994, Prof. Dr. med. Valery Polyakov orbited the earth non-stop for a total of 438 days in the MIR space station. A functional diagnosis system was used on this flight to monitor the cosmonaut crews and for his own self-diagnosis and treatment. This preventive measure alone prevented him developing any symptoms of illness. In contrast to previous space flights (the American record at the time was 20 days non-stop in space) Prof. Polyakov returned to Earth fit and with no health problems.
Energy status, energy distribution and any blockages in the body can be visualised using the Q.Z diagnostics system and the change after just a single session can be shown.
Energy status measurement
Quantum Zone System is a computer analysis system for health. In the event of symptoms, the system determines which meridians are disturbed, what has caused this disturbance and what needs to be done to remedy it. It is a unique combination of 5,000-year-old Chinese knowledge based on the energy flows in the meridians with western rational logic and the measuring techniques of modern computer technology and microchips.
This means that your energy status can be ascertained very accurately and therapy can consequently be directed specifically to your needs. In this way, for example, you will discover the best setting and optimum action of the Q.Z System.
Technical background of an Q.Z System Measurement
The energy status of the meridians is determined at the start and end points of the meridians. The measurements are delegable and reproducible. The measuring process is controlled by four microchips. 400 measurements are carried out for each measuring point within a few milliseconds. The computer interprets and processes the measured data, which are then displayed in graph form on the screen. The measurements are pressure-free and taken with an extremely low current within a very short period. The energy output at the acupuncture point measured is a constant 455 billionth of a Joule.
Measurement inaccuracies are filtered out and the computer calculates the meridian value. With a resistance measuring range from 20 kOhm to 60,000 kOhm, it is possible to measure even extremely sick patients. The measurement duration depends on the level of resistance. With a resistance of 1,000 kOhm it is 12 milliseconds, at 20,000 kOhm it is 150 milliseconds. The electrical load on the skin is 455 billionth of a Joule. This means that the cells are not damaged during the measurement as occurs with other procedures. The system has a measurement error of 0.25% (absolute reproducibility according to Prof. F. Popp. Erfahrungsheilkunde, January 2002).
Unlike most other systems, the acupuncture point is not mechanically or electrically stressed. The measuring pin is spring-mounted so that the measuring pressure of 20 grams is always constant and the measurement is totally reproducible. The measuring current of 0.4 microamperes is also very low. Minimal mechanical pressure and a very small current ensure optimum reliability and hence reproducibility of the measurement. Use of a 1.2 volt battery means that “electrosmog” is not perceptible around the apparatus. Transmission of the data from the measuring computer to the computer is undertaken using infrared so that no indirect electrical influence takes place via the computer either. All these factors make the measurements objective and reproducible.
The meridian measurement used in the Q.Z System has proven its value over many years and involves the following benefits and opportunities:
- Establishment of the energy status
- Detection of energy imbalances
- Finding the causes of chronic afflictions
- Observation and evaluation of the efficacy of treatments
- Detection of blockages arising from scar tissue, stress, psychological problems, etc., for example
- Detection of interference fields
An overall application plan consists of 4 steps:
- Removing the causes of physical problems and restoring bodily functions
- Bringing energy flow imbalances back into equilibrium
- Processing/integrating unintegrated and unprocessed emotions
- Accompanying the client into the life situation s/he desires
Since the meridians are all-encompassing and provide us with information about physical and mental disorders, Q.Z System can serve as a starting point for every treatment. By using the measured results we are far better able to determine the direction of measures to be taken and to test the results afterwards. Q.Z System measurements in combination with the use of the Q.Z System can quickly lead to effective holistic treatment.
Proof of efficacy using dark-field microscopy
It is both known and scientifically proven that weakened cell metabolism in the blood vessels results in water being deposited. If the vessels swell up, blood can flow only slowly. This, in turn, causes the blood corpuscles to form clumps which can absorb less oxygen. This negative effect is reinforced by “electrosmog” (electromagnetic radiation), such as is given off by radiation from mobile phones, radio and mobile phone transmitter masts and electrical appliances, by a poor diet, medicines, emotional problems, such as stress and overload, too little exercise and severe pollution of the air, soil and water by a wide variety of toxins. Ultimately, the result is poor supply to organs and tissue.
The current “status” of the blood can be observed under a dark-field microscope. Dark-field microscopy is an optical method of examining objects that are so small as to be well below the level of perception of the human eye and that can therefore not be viewed or can only be viewed to a limited extent without technical assistance.
The vibrations, music, notes, oscillations and pulsed magnetic fields generated according to scientific principles by the TBR System improve cell metabolism, dilate the capillaries, break up the clumps (what is known as the sludging phenomenon) and thus allow the blood cells to take up and transport more oxygen. The result is that circulation to the whole body improves with higher supplies of oxygen and nutrients. Waste products are carried away.
Proof of efficacy using a thermal imaging camera
The process of using a thermal imaging camera to create pictures is known as thermography. Thermography is an imaging process that visualises the heat radiated by an object or body that is invisible to the human eye (medium infrared). In thermography, temperature distributions over surfaces are recorded and depicted. Thermography is a non-contact measurement procedure.
In the field of medicine, one of the uses of thermal imaging cameras is to detect the sites of local inflammations or infections. A thermal imaging camera can also be used to visualise the increased temperature radiation resulting from increased circulation, such as occurs, for example, after a single use of TBR System
Proof of efficacy using heart-rate variability measurements
Heart-frequency or heart-rate variability (HRV) describes the ability of an organism to change the frequency of its cardiac rhythm. Spontaneous changes in the time between two heartbeats occur even at rest.
A healthy body uses autonomic, physiological regulation pathways to adjust the heart-rate constantly to instantaneous requirements. Physical exertion or mental stress is thus known to lead to an increased heart-rate, which normally decreases again on resting or relaxation. Greater variability in heart-rate indicates a greater ability to adjust to stress. In contrast, under a chronic stress load, both of these are more or less restricted and thus reduced because of the typically high, ongoing tension levels.
A heartbeat in a healthy individual is triggered by an impulse from the sinus node, the central pacemaker of the autonomic excitation system of the heart. This, in turn, is influenced by the higher-ranking vegetative nervous system, the sympathetic nervous system exerting an activating influence, one of the effects of which is to increase heart rate. Physical and mental stresses are accompanied by an increase in sympathetic nervous system activity in parallel to the physical functions controlled by the vagus nerve, such as digestion.
Just a single Q.Z System session results in a significant increase in heart-rate variability, the capacity to adjust to stress is increased, and the actions of the sympathetic and parasympathetic, and the enteric nervous systems, which, together, form the nervous system and control all the organs, are balanced out.

SCIENTIFIC BASIS FOR USING ELECTRICAL CURRENTS IN HEALING
- Electrical potentials and electrical currents occur at all levels within the body; from the body as a whole, down to an intracellular level.
- Electrical potentials and electrical currents direct and control cell behavior.
- These electrical potentials and currents are generated and maintained by Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
ATP Synthesis is generated by electron flow.
Electrical Potentials and Currents in the Body
- Electrical potentials and the resulting Electrical currents occur at all levels within the body; from the body as a whole, down to an intracellular level.
We all know that electrical currents exist in our bodies; with the measurement of the electrical currents in the heart by an ECG, in the brain by an EEG, in the peripheral nerves by nerve conduction studies, and in muscles by an EMG.
There are also a variety of devices out on the market now that measure the electrical currents running through our body’s meridian systems, although these are not routinely recognized or used within the orthodox medical system.
F.R.T Technolgy are thought to utilize the recipients’ meridian system to deliver its current (or electrons).
The electrical currents occurring within individual organ systems and at a cellular level are driven by electrical potentials created by the cells and organs. Two examples of these are ‘Cell Wall Membrane Potentials’, and ‘Transepithelial Potentials (TEP’s) i.e. this is an electrical potential across an epithelial layer such as the skin. Overall, our bodies are thought to be more negatively charged on the outside than at our centre. An Electrical Potential is the difference in charge (positive [+ve] and negative [-ve]) between 2 areas, e.g. the +ve and –ve terminals of a fully charged battery. It is the electrical potentials that drive the currents just like a battery drives the current around a circuit. The cells create these electrical potentials by ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) driven pumps within [on] the cell walls. These ATP driven pumps actively pump positively charged ions across the cell wall resulting in a greater number of positively charged ions on the outside of the cell wall, or on one side of a membrane than the other. This creates a positive area and the resulting negatively charged area or an electrical potential.
These electrical potentials are critical in wound healing process and in the creation of ATP as described later. It is at these deeper and more subtle electrical levels in the body that the EPRT devices are having an effect.
The Role of Electrical Potentials and Electrical Currents at the cellular level
- Electrical Potentials and Electrical Currents Direct and Control Cell Behavior.
To help understand these electrical potentials and electrical currents we are going to examine their role in three areas:
A series of studies [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] measuring electrical potentials and electrical currents were carried out on Axolotl, Xenopus, and Chick embryos. All studies described electrical potentials and electrical currents. The electrical potentials were found to run in specific and uniform directions; from rostrocaudal (head to tail) and mediolateral (midline to edge). The Electrical currents flowed out of specific areas of the embryos, and these areas were found to be the areas of major tissue movement. The electrical current densities were found to be in the order of 100uA/cm2.
Figure 1 (above).Spatial differences in the transepithelial potential difference (TEP) generate electric fields within intact embryos. A: TEP measurements made using glass voltage-sensing electrodes. The TEP of axolotl embryos was measured relative to a bath ground electrode at the time of early neural tube formation (stage 16) in three positions on the same embryo. Measurement sites are shown in B: a, at the rostral end of the neural groove; b, at the lateral edge of the neural fold; c, at the lateral epithelium; d, halfway along the neural groove; e, at the caudal end of the neural groove near the blastopore. The TEP at each site was positive on the inside of the embryo. [Data from Shi and Borgens (180).] B: TEP measurements made at sites a, b, and c in 8 embryos demonstrating that the TEP is highest in the center of the neural groove (a) and lowest at the lateral edge of the neural ridge (b). Measurements from 20 embryos at site a, d, and e indicates a rostral to caudal TEP gradient. [Data from Shi and Borgens (180); embryo in B and D modified from Borgens and Shi (26).] C: an artist’s impression of the spatial differences of TEP in a stage 16 axolotl embryo. Colors represent the magnitude of the TEP. Yellow is highest, and purple is lowest. The slope of the line indicates the magnitude of the resulting local electric field in the subepidermal tissues. [Modified from Shi and Borgens (180).] D: current loops detected using a non-invasive vibrating electrode. The electrode vibrates rapidly near the embryo in an electrically conductive medium (e.g., pond water). The stainless steel electrode has a small voltage sensing platinum ball at its tip, which is vibrated rapidly over a distance of _20 _m. The electrode (red) is shown at the extremes of its vibration. The voltage is determined at each point, and the current density at the measurement site is calculated using known values for distance from the embryo and the resistivity of the bathing medium. As would be predicted from the spatial variation of TEP illustrated in A and B, there is outward current at the lateral edges of the neural ridges, inward current at the center of the neural groove, inward current at the lateral skin, and a large outward current at the blastopore.
The studies then disrupted the naturally occurring (endogenous) electrical potentials and currents by either enhancing them (hyperpolarising) or reducing them (depolarising) and examined the effects on the embryo’s. The results were astounding.
The embryo’s exposed to electrical fields reported 87-95% abnormality rates, while the control embryos reported 11-17% abnormality rates. The abnormalities seen consisted of; absence of cranium, loss of one or both eyes, misshapen head, abnormal brachial development, incomplete closure of neural folds, incomplete notocord development, and cells were seen to migrate out of the embryo and developed autonomously in the dish while other cells that had differentiated were reduced to a formless mass of apparently dedifferentiated cells. They also showed that the axis of cell division can be determined by applied and endogenous Electrical Fields.
In summary, endogenous electrical fields with normal polarity and magnitude are essential for normal development and the pattern of electrical potentials within embryos provide a gross template or blueprint for the development of the embryos guiding differentiation and movement of the cells within the embryo.
It has been known for over 150 yrs that endogenous electrical currents played a part in wound healing, with a German physiologist Emil Du-Bois Reymond measuring a 1uA current flowing out of a cut in his own finger!
These electrical currents arise as a result of a standing electrical potential that is constant and maintained across the epithelial layer of the skin. This electrical potential is called a ‘Transepithelial Potential’ or TEP’s. On the surface layer of the epithelium there is passive influx of positively charged sodium (Na+) and potassium (K+) ions. On the basal cell membrane there are Na+/K+ ATP ases that actively pump Na+ out of the cell into the matrix. This results in a higher concentration of Na+ inside the skin relative to the outer surface creating a TEP. Intact skin therefore represents a biological battery. This is powered by ATP.
Injury currents occur when there is a break in the epithelial layer resulting in an out-flowing of Na+ ions from the inner layer of the skin (high concentration) to the outer layers of the skin (lower concentration). This out flow of positively charged ions is an electrical current, and this electrical current creates a bioelectrical field. Electrical fields are important as having both magnitude and direction. They can impose directional movement on chemicals in the extracellular environment, on receptor molecules, on cells and on tissues . This explains how the great German physiologist Emil Du-Bois Reymond measured a 1uA current flowing out of his own cut finger in 1843, and Robert Beckers observations of the currents flowing out of the wounds of amputated salamander tails and limbs in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
The instant a wound is created a Direct Current Electrical Field (DC EF) is set up. McCaig claims that “In evolutionary terms, membrane resealing to close an electrical leak is among the most primitive activities that cells undertake.”
So what do these electrical currents mean in terms of the healing process?
Two studies [9,10] looking at wound induced electrical fields (EF) in bovine cornea and guinea pig and human skin not only proved the existence of electrical fields which dropped exponentially with the distance from the wound, but also came to the following conclusions:
- All cell behaviors within approximately 500um of a wound edge in skin and cornea take place within a standing gradient voltage. These include epithelial cell migration, epithelial cell division, nerve sprouting, leukocyte infiltration, and endothelial cell remodeling with associated angiogenesis i.e. the whole gamut of cellular responses to injury.
- Because the voltage gradient dropped exponentially with the distance from the wound any cell behaviors governed by the endogenous EF would be regulated differently with the distance from the wound.
- Increasing or decreasing the TEP would inevitably increase or decrease the voltage gradient profile at the wound.
Studies [11, 12, and 13] were then done on rats cornea’s manipulating the endogenous EF’s by either enhancing or reducing the endogenous EF’s or by applying exogenous electrical currents.
These studies looked at;
i. Healing rates,
ii. Proliferation of cells,
iii. Axis of cell division,
iv. And nerve growth.
i. The direction and rate of migrating epithelial cells into the wound was affected by the EF. Enhancing the EF healed the corneal wound 2.5 times faster while reducing the EF slowed the rate of healing to 18% of normal.
ii. The proliferation of epithelial cells. Similarly there was a 40% increase in cell divisions within 600um of the wound edge in the corneas whose EF was enhanced, and a 27% suppression of mitoses in the corneas whose EF was reduced
iii. The axis of cell division. It was found that in the dividing cells, the mitotic spindle aligns parallel to the EF, and the cleavage occurred perpendicular to this. The orientation of the dividing cells reduced the further away from the wound edge, as the strength of the EF reduces. Again cells in an enhanced EF roughly doubled the proportion of dividing cells whose cleavage plans were perpendicular to the EF, and corneas treated in a reduced EF
iv. The proportion of nerves sprouting at the wound, and the direction of growth of nerve sprouts towards the wound edge. The corneas in an enhanced EF showed neurite growth enhanced with more sprouts appearing, they appeared earlier, and orientated towards the wound edge earlier. Reducing the EF did not prevent early collateral nerve sprouting, but the nerve growth was not directed towards the wound edge.
v. EFs were found to stimulate secretion in the extracellular space of growth factors (VEGF) from endothelial cells .
vi. EFs were found to upregulate expression of growth factor receptors (EGFR) on corneal epithelial cells .
vii. In an applied DC EF with the cathode at the wound edge the wound healed faster, but with the anode at the wound edge the wound not only failed to close but actually opened up .
It was concluded that because electrical signals arise immediately in a wound and control multiple cell behaviors in vivo, the physiological EF may orchestrate an integrated response of interdependent cell behaviors that includes the epithelial and nerve interactions essential for wound healing. Consequently, the EF is at the head of a hierarchy of cues that interact to promote wound healing .
All cells have an electrical potential across their cell membrane that makes the outside of the cell relatively positively charged compared to the inside of the cell. This again represents a biological battery. The charge across a healthy cell membrane is approximately -70mV. To put this into perspective, if the membrane is 7-10nm thick then the corresponding voltage is 10 million volts per meter . Maintenance of this cell membrane electrical potential is essential for the normal workings of the cell.
This amazing membrane potential is generated and maintained by the disproportionate pumping of sodium ions (Na+) out of the cell and potassium.
ions (K+) into the cell. Three (3) Na+ are pumped out of the cell for every two (2) K+ pumped into the cell. This results in a greater number Na+ outside the cell compared to the number of K+ inside the cell and therefore a greater positive charge outside the cell. This pump that lives in the cell wall is called Na+/K+ ATPase, and as the named suggests is powered by ATP. Interestingly Magnesium also plays an integral role in the process binding onto the Na+/K+ ATPase pump with ATP.
There are a multitude of other ion channels in the cell wall membranes that transfer ions from one side of the cell wall to the other. While not powered by ATP they are affected by the electrical potential of the cell membrane (Voltage gradient) and also produce electrical currents of their own. These ion channels open or close by changing their shape as a result of the activation of a receptor part of the molecule or changes in the cell wall membrane potential. They also contain a voltage sensitive gate which as the name suggests opens or closes with changes in voltage gradients (or electrical potentials).
Erwin Neher and Bert Sakmann  won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine in 1991, “for their discoveries concerning the function of single ion channels in cells”. They essentially devised a method of measuring the electrical currents in a single ion channel in the cell wall. What they found was there existed electrical currents in the range of picoAmpere occurring inside the ion channels that corresponded with the opening and closing of that ion channel.
In summary, we can see that not only do electrical potentials and electrical currents exist in cell wall membranes, but they control and direct the membranes ability to transfer ions across the cell wall membrane, the influx and efflux of nutrients and toxins, and so as a result influencing the internal and external environment and overall health of the cell.
In conclusion we can see that the body generates and maintains electrical potentials at the cell wall, across epithelial layers, as well that through the body as a whole. That the more subtle electrical potentials and currents control cell behavior in embryonic development, in wound healing, and within the cell in the cell wall membranes.
If you are working to change cellular, organ behavior or patterns with nutrients, herbs, or drugs, you do not have a hope if the electrical message being generated at a cellular level is opposite to that which you are trying to achieve. Our aim is to support the natural electrical processes of the body by working at its level of operation, NOT to override or destroy them.
The Role of ATP in Electron Potentials
- These electrical potentials and currents are generated and maintained by ATP.
The majority of ATP is produced via the Electron Transport Chain (ETC). The ETC is a series of protein complexes and ubiquinone (or CoQ10) found in the inner membrane of the mitochondria. The main product of the Citric acid or Krebs cycle is a molecule called NADH (the reduced form of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide or NAD+). NADH is a high energy molecule that contains 2 electrons. NADH donates these two electrons into the first complex of the ETC. The two electrons then flow down an energy gradient to be received by a relatively low energy Oxygen molecule in the last complex to form water. At different stages throughout the ETC as the electrons step down an energy level Protons are pumped across the inner membrane against the electrochemical gradient. It is the high concentration of protons in the inter-membrane space that drives the ATP synthase to synthesize ATP from ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and Pi (inorganic phosphate). So the number of ATP produced by the reduction of Oxygen from NADH is proportional to the number of electrons flowing down the ETC.
In diseased states there is most likely electron leakage out of the ETC resulting in a less efficient process. If by exposing the mitochondria to an electrical current that can flow electrons through the ETC without asking the mitochondria and the Krebs cycle to work any harder then we can improve the efficiency of ATP production. This has been backed up with work done by Ngok Cheng  who showed that ATP production was dramatically increased in a rat skin model as a result of passing micro-currents through those cells.
From the moment of our creation, the electrical fields our cells and body generate govern the cellular decision making processes that direct the expression of our genes, our development and growth, the day to day operating of our cells, and our healing. It all starts at the level of the mitochondria (the powerhouse of the cell and therefore, the body), as it is the ATP that the mitochondria produces, powers the cells ability to generate the electrical fields.
The aim of F.R.T therefore, is to assist the mitochondria in maximizing their ability to produce ATP, this increases the cells ability to generate and maintain the electrical fields it uses to direct the healing process, which will result in an improved outcome for that person. Prof. Tim Watson describes this process as ‘Cellular Tickling’ .
“Cellular tickling is gently tickling the cells and cell walls with low energy fields producing membrane excitement, and therefore cellular excitement stimulating the cells into a higher level of activity. Rather than the electrical device doing the work, you are tapping into the natural resources and innate knowledge of the cells to do the work.”
This is what F.R.T Technologies is doing; tapping into the meridians of the body, flowing electrons through the body into the mitochondria, enabling them to produce more ATP, exciting the cells into generating their own electrical response which stimulates the healing process of the body.

Are you open to a new way of looking at healing?
The New Science of Information as Medicine
A revolutionary system that reestablishes the proper flow of information to the body’s energetic fields to promote health
• Presents a new integrative model of the energetic physiology of the human body (the human body-field) and its influence on health
• Shows that a root cause of disease is due to information blockages in the body-field
• Introduces MGI-Ceuticals – remedies that help the human body-field process vital information to engage the physical body’s self-healing abilities
After decades of research, Dr. Skrypnjuk has formulated a system that unites the meridian system of traditional Chinese medicine with quantum wave theory to provide the first comprehensive link between the human body’s biochemistry and bioenergetics. He explains that we each have a body-field based on twelve meridian-like channels that process and coordinate information throughout the body and that our health depends on the proper flow and communication of information through these channels.
How to Super Charge Your Health with Abundant Energy
Imagine if you could wake up every day feeling supercharged – you just can’t wait to take on your day!
Conventional medicine and even many forms of alternative medicine, have limits. They often address symptoms instead of getting to the root of the problem and promoting real healing. For anyone who wants to get well and stay well, this could be the most important information you ever read. It’s about a system that harnesses the body’s innate healing power. No, it’s not crystals, voodoo or pixie dust. It’s called “energy medicine” or Quantum Information Medicine. Essentially, it’s activating the body’s own information and energy to heal itself. If you’re not familiar with the term, here is a simple definition:
Quantum Information Medicine is the study of information and energy in living organisms. An evolution is taking place right now, and you’re on the cutting edge. It’s literally changing the landscape of what we know about healing, rapidly speeding recovery time, and making old methods obsolete.
Your Body’s Amazing Healing Powers
Did you ever think about how your body instinctively knows what to do? If you cut your finger, bruise your knee, or catch a cold, your amazing body knows how to heal itself. It is beautifully equipped with natural self-repair mechanisms. It knows how to kill faulty cells, fix broken proteins, slow aging, eliminate toxins, fight infections, get rid of foreign bodies, and otherwise keep you healthy. The great mystery of conventional biology is how we are “self-organizing” systems. Your body doesn’t just choose functions at random. It seems to “know” what to do, and many scientists are now saying the body has its own kind of inherent intelligence. It seems to have an “information code” that tells it how to grow and repair.
What Do The Mystics Know?
When people heal from a disease without modern interventions, bio-chemical medicine has no framework to explain these events. They often dismiss them as spontaneous remissions… or the result of some kind of placebo effect. But is it a miraculous cure or can science explain how the body heals? Mystics and healers claim we are “energy beings” surrounded by a complex, structured network of fields that interpenetrate the human physical body.
Information as the New Medicine
The idea of information as medicine may seem radically different. How can something as intangible as “information” have any effect on your body, never mind on the state of your health? It may sound unbelievable, or at least unfamiliar to you, but let’s explore how it works. A perfect example of this is the marvel of life itself. We all start from a single cell that divides over and over again, forming tissues and organs, ultimately creating a functioning human-being.
How miraculous is that? And how exactly does nature know what to do?
The answer is “information.” Information describes the way our systems are organized, but information also directs the development of that system to create “life”.
Information + Energy = Life
Ultimately, information and energy are the building blocks of life, and everything we do to our body, including all therapies, directly affect our energy patterns. The basic premise for healing is that if cells and other aspects of the physical body are missing the proper information, they can’t do their jobs correctly. Without the correct information, body processes break down, resulting in the symptoms of disease. We are all susceptible to information becoming distorted because we are exposed to environmental toxins and pathogens, too much stress, poor diets, electromagnetic fields, and much more.
The Research Into Correcting Distortions
For more than thirty years Dr Skrypnjuk had been exploring how to detect and correct distorted information in the body-field. No one had explored health from this perspective before. Dr.Skrypnjuk conducted tens of thousands of experiments and collected data sets that correlate the body-field to the various aspects of the body. These included everything from cells and tissues, to organs, body fluids such as blood and plasma, and even to emotions. Most importantly, he studied how the body directs and controls energy in the different parts of the body. He devised a way to correct distortions so the body could get back to functioning as nature intended it to, which is to maintain a vibrant state of health and well-being. Dr.Skrypnjuk developed remedies based on the principle that information can change the structure of a substance, giving it healing properties when that information is transferred to you. We call these remedies MGI-Ceutical. They are pure information encoded in homeopathic drops. The information in MGI – ceuticals corrects distortions in the body-field, ultimately directing the body’s own selfhealing capacities.
Water: The Science of Miracles
What do you need to survive: Water? Air? Food? Facebook? If you included ‘water’ in your answer, you’re right. Water is crucial to life. In fact, your body is more water than anything else! Did you know that your blood, bones and muscles are composed largely of water? A staggering 99 percent of the molecules in the human body are water molecules. That’s because the proteins and fats in our bodies are made up of water molecules. In fact, every cell in your body is filled with water. You can truly say we are born as water babies.
Your body is more ‘water’ than anything else. Water is fundamental to how our bodies function, and to our health and wellbeing.
Wonderful water: It’s not what’s in your kitchen sink
Your body is made of trillions of cells. They contain dozens of smaller, functioning structures that coordinate thousands of processes in your body.
Every cell in your body is the center of a whirlwind of activity coordinating thousands of processes in your body.
The cells do everything necessary to keep you alive, from breaking down food to extract energy, to secreting hormones, removing wastes, and monitoring your salt and water levels.
Inside your cells are proteins and other structures, with spaces that are filled with water. This means there are lots of surfaces that interact with water and impact its structure. In fact, water is part of the very structure of your cells. You probably learned in science class that water is H2 O; however, the water in your cells is not ordinary tap water that runs into your kitchen sink. It has a unique crystalline structure. Instead of being H2 O it is H3 O2 . The ‘structure of water’ means the way water’s molecules are organized. Scientists have discovered some amazing things about water. First, water molecules can join together into groups called clusters. Most surfaces and molecules in your body are H3 O2 and have a gel-like consistency. This type of water is found next to water-loving surfaces such as proteins and cell membranes, and has a special order of layers with different electrical charges from ordinary tap water. This structured water works as memory cells in which water actually records information it is exposed to – just as a laser encodes information onto a Blu Ray disc.
Water: One Of The Primary Ways We Get Information
In the last section, we discovered how everything comes down to energy and information. We are completely connected to the environment around us, where we obtain information we need to survive and thrive. Water is one of the primary ways our bodies get this information. In a series of fascinating experiments in the 1990s, Dr. Masaru Emoto gained worldwide acclaim with his groundbreaking discovery that water is deeply connected to the consciousness of its surroundings. Dr. Emoto performed a series of experiments observing the physical effect of information on the crystalline structure of water. He exposed water to different environments. Then, using a very powerful microscope with high-speed photography, he captured the ‘expressions’ of water to show how they were imprinted by focused intention. The frozen water samples showed that positive information such as classical music, focused prayer or uplifting words and phrases caused beautiful geometric crystals to form. Whereas negative information such as samples from polluted rivers, focused rage or words such as ‘hate’ and ‘fear’ that created distorted and randomly formed crystalline structures. Dr. Emoto’s book The Hidden Messages in Water was published in Japan in 2005. With 500,000 copies sold internationally, it shows the keen interest in the amazing properties of water. Many respected scientists such as Mae Wan-Ho and Professor Gerald Pollack also suggest that water does indeed exhibit different properties, depending on what it has been in contact with, meaning that water has memory. Gerald Pollack is an academic researcher at the University of Washington. His latest book, The Fourth Phase of Water, provides a new understanding of water that holds the key to solving numerous puzzles in biology.
A little science…on your “water-based battery”
We can think of the biological building block of life, the cell, as a battery that must obtain energy to charge it. Water is part of the structure of each cell, and just like a battery, it needs to be charged. We are always surrounded by infrared radiation from the sun, which we store as heat. We humans rely on sunlight as the energy source that “charges” the “water batteries” in our tissues. Water that interacts with light and heat becomes “charge separated”. This means that the water molecule changes structure as the positively charged hydrogen atoms are repelled, leaving a negatively charged hydrogen and oxygen group. This separation of charge allows us to draw electrical energy from our “water-based battery.” “It’s like agitating a car key in the river, going miles downstream, extracting a few drops of water, and then starting one’s car with the water’’ Dr. Jacques Benveniste.
THE LIVING MATRIX
The Living Matrix is an interconnected system that reaches into every part and system of the body. It’s made up of the structural collagen network. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It helps strengthen connective tissue and provides cushioning for various parts of the body. The matrix is truly living, in that it provides our bodies with a stable structure. It is also the container for our internal ocean, the fluids where many crucial biochemical and metabolic reactions take place. No water, no life. The matrix is the sponge that holds water in our bodies. It bathes our cells with nutrients, helps us eliminate toxins, and transmits memory and information to all the cells and tissues. That’s why the living matrix needs to be well hydrated. This network acts like a liquid superconducting cable that operates at the speed of light, touching every part of our cells almost instantaneously. Energy and information in the Living Matrix affect every cell and every aspect of our body-field, including the nervous system, the immune system, the endocrine system (including hormones and neurotransmitters), right down to how our DNA is expressed (epigenetics).
MGI – ceuticals: Revolutionary Remedies Of The Future
As we’ve been discussing, water is a bit like a computer’s hard drive that can store audio and visual information and then play it back. The information your body receives is vitally important, because it influences which proteins your body manufactures to repair or create new tissue. The better the information you give your body, the better your health. MGI-ceuticals contain pure information that actually change the environment of your cells, directly correcting specific information structures and energy patterns in your body. In this way, instead of just relieving symptoms, they activate your body’s own healing mechanism, supporting and encouraging a more balanced, healthy life.
Healing IS Voltage
Do you ever use the expression, “recharging your batteries” to talk about getting more rest? You instinctively know that you’ll be healthier when you give your body the rest it needs to heal itself. But in addition to the essential elements you already know about, including food, water, sunlight, oxygen, sleep and exercise, there is one element you may not have considered: the earth’s PEMFs. (Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields). You see, at an energetic level, our cells act as battery-driven miniature pumps. They require food for fuel, oxygen for combustion, and magnetism to drive the process. Healing is simply a matter of charging up your cells to their optimal voltage so they can do their work. Enough magnetic energy is normally provided by the earth’s energy fields. However in our modern indoor lifestyles, we have become disconnected from the earth. Our “human battery” can run us down, and we need to recharge it. Healing is simply a matter of charging up the depleted cells to their optimal voltage so they can do their work. The Quantum Zone functionaln diagnostic device detects the areas in the body with cells depleted of energy. It literally “jump-starts” the healing process by providing enough magnetic energy at the cellular level to the places your body needs it.
Ever Wonder Why There’s No Heart Cancer?
The reason there is no heart cancer is that the heart cells have the highest voltage of any cells in the body. As amazing as it may sound, the energy field of your body extends outwards for up to 15 feet. Non-invasive magnetic pulses create small electrical signals in the tissue to enhance cellular repair. Clinical trials and other controlled studies have been conducted by physiotherapists, rheumatologists, neurologists, pain specialists, and others, showing the effectiveness of magnetic pulses, especially in healing soft-tissue injury, reducing inflammation at the cell level, encouraging bone growth, and alleviating pain. Your health relies on the continuous and balanced exchange of energy in your body. Every function of your body is interrelated and works in harmony with other functions – that is, until stress, injury or disease disrupts that communication. Luckily, the body is a magnificent mechanism. When it has enough voltage and functions optimally, it has the innate intelligence to trigger its own powerful and often immediate, improvement. Some batteries you toss away but the batteries in your body are forever. Fortunately the Quantum Zone sistem can identify where to recharge the batteries in your body.
Tap into the benefits of Magnetic Feedback:
• Regenerate and rejuvenate
• Support the body’s inherent healing abilities
• Reduce stress and improve mood
• Improve sleep
• Gain energy and vitality …and more!
Energize Your Body, Day and Night
Basically, life is energy flow. This comes down to the movement of electrons in your body. Think of all the processes that require energy from your body, from growing, to metabolizing food, to repairing damage to tissues. Did you know that only 50 percent of our energy comes from food? We constantly read about which foods to eat for energy, and about getting enough sleep which is equally important to having abundant energy. We’ve recently discussed another crucial element to giving you energy: the earth’s magnetism, and how we need to “recharge” our bodies’ batteries. Now, we’re about to reveal one more element that has a huge effect on your energy levels and your health: light! We don’t exist in a vacuum. We live on planet earth, and many of our body’s cycles are highly influenced by circadian rhythms.
Your Body Clock is Ticking!
Think about how energized you feel on bright sunny days, and how you instinctively feel like hibernating on cold, dark winter nights. Our bodies naturally attune to the rhythms of daily and seasonal changes in light and temperate. Circadian rhythms, often referred to as the “body clock,” exert a powerful force on our health and well-being. These changes of light and temperature affect everything in our lives. Daily sunlight, temperature, and seasonal changes are associated with elecromagnetic activity in your cells, which influences how much energy you have, how your body repairs damage and fights off invading organisms, and even to how you burn fat. Sunlight that varies during the day and over the seasons helps your cells sense the time of the day and the season you are in, so your body knows what to do. Circadian rhythms may be part of the missing clues. Many adverse health effects are related to disrupted circadian rhythms, from increased chances of cardiovascular events, to obesity, to neurological problems such as depression. In the daytime, sunlight produces high electromagnetic activity in our cells, which we feel as warmth and energy. At night we have reduced electromagnetic activity. Our temperature is lower, and this strengthens our magnetic field, allowing our bodies to repair proteins and burn fat.
HOW TO SUPERCHARGE YOUR ENERGY
What if you could supercharge your energy and your body’s innate healing systems? By now, you’ve read about how we are “energy beings” with self-organizing systems that tell our bodies how to grow and heal. Information and energy are the master control systems that give our cells information to do their jobs properly. Water is one of the primary ways our bodies get this vital information. It is the perfect vehicle to transport information to our cells, to trigger the body’s own innate healing response.

This study has demonstrated the effectiveness of ElectroDermal screening with both the clinical and laboratory diagnosis in 500 patients with subphysiologic hypothyroid have been compared to 100 normal age adjusted control subjects. The correlation between the EDS measured abnormalities, using standard deviation (SDI) criteria and patients with sub-physiologic hypothyroid state was statistically significant at 99.5% with a P< 0.005.
Thus EDS has demonstrated its effectiveness, when utilized by a skilled technician, to be a valuable tool for the analysis and diagnoses of sub-physiologic hypothyroid levels
Energy Effective in Allergy Treatment
According to 2010 Study carried out in 2010 shows the Asyra Pro to be extremely effective in treating allergy patients. The study monitored the condition of 35 individuals suffering from the symptoms of allergies, over the course of 4 months.
Of the subjects:
- 25 were tested using the Asyra bio-resonance screening device and remedies were imprinted using the testing plate
- 5 received a placebo treatment
- 5 received no treatment at all
Any change in the health of each subject was measured before and after the treatment. The results are as follows:
Each red bar represents an individual’s symptom severity at the beginning of the study; the green next to it represents symptom severity for that individual at the end of the 4 months. From left to right along the horizontal axis, the first 25 subjects are those treated with the Asyra, the next 5 are the recipients of the placebo, and the final 5 were the control group.
As you can see, both the placebo and control groups showed a slight deterioration in their condition, while subjects who received the Asyra remedies all saw an improvement of between 80%-90%.
Asyra and Blood Chemistry
Drawing from a clinical pool of 1,800 patients, E.Alan Jeppsen, M.D., and Steven G. Osguthorpe, N.D., conducted a double-blind study of over 600 randomly assigned patients, of which 100 were used as control subjects. This study, “Effectiveness of the Asyra in Assessing Sub-Physiologic Thyroid Levels in Women 35 to 65 Years of Age,” yielded a 97 percent correlation with blood chemistry.
Reproducibility of Point Readings
There were 34 subjects measured on two occasions in this study with 44 points measured 4 times on each occasion for a total of 11,968 readings. The results showed a mean deviation of 0.70 respectively. The readings were taken by Mark Galloway a long-time and accomplished practitioner in this field. Nancy R. Roberts, Ph.D., C.

Electromagnetic Applications in Medicine
NIH – OAM Panel Report
National Institutes of Health, Office of Alternative Medicine January 14, 1993
Editors: Beverly Rubik, Ph.D. and Robert G. Flower
Panel Members: Robert O. Becker, M.D.; Carlton F. Hazlewood, Ph.D.; Abraham R. Liboff, Ph.D.; and Jan Walleczek, Ph.D.
Objective: To overview the emerging science of bioelectromagnetics (BEM); to report on the accomplishments of BEM research as reported in the literature surveyed; to summaries how BEM can provide a better understanding of fundamental mechanisms of communication and regulation at levels ranging from intracellular to organismic; to discuss how BEM may offer a unified conceptual framework that explains how alternative medical practices work (such as homeopathy, acupuncture}; to recommend further research that would validate BEM and develop diagnostic and therapeutic applications; and to outline barriers to BEM research and recommendations to overcome them.
Data Sources & Study Selection: The panel reviewed research and findings in a random survey of 132 research papers of articles published in several medical and scientific journals and books, and papers presented at symposiums from 1972 – 1993. Most sources were published from 1990 – 1993. Journals ranged from Bone to Cancer and to Radiation Research.
Data Extraction: Relevant examples of research findings were used to explain concepts of BEM, its current and potential diagnostic and therapeutic applications, and how BEM could lead to further understanding of fundamental life processes.
Results of Data Synthesis: The NIH – OAM panel stated that “bioelectromagnetics essentially underlies biochemistry in that chemical reactions of biological importance are mediated by the electromagnetic force.” After reviewing the scientific literature, the panel concluded that an integrated program including both clinical research and basic research in BEM is necessary and proper. Factors considered in making this recommendation were: 1) certain BEM-based modalities that offer distinct benefits (such as non-invasive application) over current approaches already in limited clinical use; 2) elucidation of the physical mechanisms of BEM medical modalities is the most powerful key to developing efficient and optimal clinical intervention; 3) studies prepared for three federal agencies (OTA, NIOSH, and EPA) have recommended independently that research on EM field interactions in humans should receive high priority; 4) BEM offers the possibility of more economical and more effective diagnoses and new no non-invasive therapies for medical problems, including those considered intractable or recalcitrant t9 conventional treatments.
Conclusions: The panel recommends that highest clinical research priority be given to arthritis, psychophysiological states (including epilepsy), wound healing and regeneration. Sample protocols and studies are given as examples of research that could be conducted. The panel also outlined basic research opportunities and recommended general principles to be applied to basic BEM research. Criteria for both clinical and basic research are given as well.
On the Evolution and Future Development of Electrodermal Diagnostic Instruments
Author: William A. Tiller, Ph.D., Professor (Department of Material Science and Engineering, Stanford University, Stanford, CA)
Objective: To trace the modem development of electrodermal instruments for a better understanding of origins and potentials. Those potentials have already culminated in the invention of ECG, BEG, and EMG technologies. In this paper, Dr. Tiller reviewed electrodermal development to apply modem theories of electrical engineering to medical science and the battery-like effect of given points on the human body. He explores capacitance at those points.
Data Sources & Study Selection: Dr. Tiller references 63 studies in electrodermal research, and includes appendices for diatherapuncture functionality and dielectric response in human skin.
Data Extraction: The author traces the two domains of electrodermal studies, involving macro and micro electrodes. Dr. Tiller summarises the macro electrode studies conducted during the 1940s, and provides a corresponding summary for micro electrode studies conducted between 1950 and 1985. He also tracks the development of electrodermal diagnostic devices over these time periods.
Results of Data Synthesis: There does appear to be experimental support for, and a possible theoretical model to explain, connectivity between the organs and their specific polarisation’s. There also appears to be important differences of skin measurements between the hand-held moving electrode modality and the fixed, multiple electrode, automatic switching modality.
Conclusion: Dr. Tiller concludes that there are several effective electrodermal techniques in present use that, we understand — both how they work and what they measure. After reviewing the research of the past five decades, Dr. Tiller believes that new applications of electrodermal diagnostics will be developed to supplement or complement current uses that are already standard practice in clinical medicine (such as ECG, EEG, and EMG technologies). Dr. Tiller concludes that these new devices could significantly reduce health care costs.
Nuclear Medicine and Acupuncture: A Study on the Migration of Radioactive Tracers after Injection at Acupoints
American Journal of Acupuncture, Vol. 20, No. 3, 1992
Writers: Jean-Claude Darras, Pierre de Vemejoul, and Pierre Albarède, C.H.U. Necker – Enfants Malades, F-75 743 Paris Cedex 15, France.
Objective: This paper reports on the authors investigation of the pathways of acupuncture meridians in the human body through the injection of radioactive tracers (isotopes) at acupuncture points.
Design: The radioactive tracer used was the most common radioactive tracer, techetium-99m (99mTc), as sodium pertechnetate. The experiment was conducted with a gamma camera, a Siemens SAM (small-area mobile) digital scintillation camera. Image analysis was conducted by a computer system built into the camera. Morphological studies and quantitative dynamic studies were conducted.
The morphological studies consisted of analytical and differential studies. For the analytical studies, the radioactive tracer is injected at a control point located outside any acupoint. Then, another injection is given at an acupoint.
The differential analysis was conducted in order to establish the specific and unique characteristics of the pathways observed in the analytical studies and thus eliminate a vascular or lymphatic explanation. To investigate the vascular pathways, two radiotracers of different energies and therefore discernible by spectrometry were utilised: Technetium-99m was injected as an acupoint and Thallium (201TI) was injected in a small vein situated next to that acupoint. To study the possible relationship between the lymphatic pathways and those demonstrated by the radiotracer, the same dose (20 MBq) and volume (0.05ml) of pertechnetate was simultaneously injected at an acupoint and the first interdigital space of the foot. A quantitative study of the previous data was conducted after selecting two mirror regions of identical shape and size on the leg along the Liver meridian (an acupuncture meridian) and similar “background noise regions” outside the pathways.
Sequential study and stimulation studies were conducted as part of quantitative dynamic studies. The goal of the sequential study was to evaluate the speed of radiotracer migration along preferential pathways. In healthy control subjects and patients with unilateral renal pathology, two sodium pertechnetate injections of identical volume and activity were given simultaneously at the left and fight acupoints K-7. In the stimulation study, mechanical, electrical, and thermal stimulation were performed on certain acupoints after the injection of radiotracers to study the migration of the radiotracers.
Laboratory experiments conducted in collaboration with the Cytology Laboratory of the Military Hospital of Percy in Paris tested modifications of granulocyte membrane potentials during stimulation of an acupoint using either a needle or a laser beam. The cell membrane potential was measured with a fluorometric method on blood sampled one minute after the end of injections or stimulation’s, and compared with control blood from the same subject.
Setting: The work was conducted on patients from the Department of Urology and from the Acupuncture Department of Biophysics and Nuclear Medicine from the Necker Hospital in Paris. Each experiment was repeated several times.
Patients and Other Participants: The work was conducted on over 250 healthy control subjects and on 80 patients with renal pathology.
Interventions: Not applicable to this study.
Main Outcome Measures: The authors expected to find that the preferential pathways taken by the radiotracers coincide with the acupuncture meridians as described in Chinese traditional medicine and that these pathways are distinguishable from either lymphatic or vascular mutes.
Results: Morphological studies found those tracer migrations from acupoints in both healthy and sick patients followed the same identical pathways with those described as “meridians” in Chinese traditional medicine. The results suggest that these pathways are different from vascular and lymphatic pathways.
The quantitative dynamic studies found that in injections at bilateral K-7, there was a faster diffusion on the healthy side, and slower diffusion on the diseased side. In inflammatory organ disease, there was increased migration speed of the radiotracer in the meridian of the related organ. A reduced tracer migration speed is indicative of a degenerative disease, such as cancer. Such findings could be used as the basis of a therapeutic evaluation or diagnosis.
The laboratory experiments with cell membranes suggests that acupoint stimulation could be used to provoke constant and reproducible change in cellular physiology.
Conclusion: The migration speed and patterns of a radioactive tracer along pathways which coincide with the Chinese acupuncture meridians show that these routes have neither a vascular nor a lympathic origin.
These pathways are very likely related to the connective tissue diffusion following the neurovascular bundles along the extremities. Findings suggest the hypothesis of the intervention of a neurochemical mechanism in information transmission.
Quantitative Analysis of Electrical Skin Conductance in Diagnosis: Historical and Current Views of Bioelectric Medicine
Journal of Naturopathic Medicine (1996: Volume 6, Number 1)
Author: Barbara Brewitt, Ph.D.
Objective: To review past electromagnetic skin conductance research for new analyses, and to present the author’s current clinical data and findings using electro-dermal screening.
Data Sources & Study Selection: Dr. Brewitt reviewed past research into measuring bioelectrical parameters, specifically the work of Harold S. Burr and associates (Yale, 1930-1940), Dr. Rheinhold Voll (1940), S.G. Sullivan (et al, 1985), and O. Bergsmann and A. Woolley-Hart (1973). Dr. Brewitt summarized this previous research, then ran her own tests to clarify electrical conductance measurements using de facto EDS instrumentation.
Data Extraction: Relevant research findings from 71 research papers provide insight into electro-dermal research (between 1938 and 1994). Dr. Brewitt recreated Burr’s work using quantitative time series analysis (Fourier) to confirm or challenge Burr’s conclusions that electrical conductance measurements significantly distinguished between health and disease states. Dr. Brewitt first conducted this research on mice and then on patients coming to the University Health Clinic for treatment. Patient groups were defined under chronic inflammation and degenerative conditions, with control groups for both. The electrical conductance measurements were analysed by Dr. Brewitt through the EDS device LISTEN (BioMeridianTM International Orem, UT), which provided a standard 5.0 volts of direct current (D.C.) and standardized measurements over a one second time period.
Results of Data Synthesis: Electrical conductance measurements on patient groups were analysed for differences at immune-related points between non-viral, non-cancer controls and patients with various clinical symptoms involving the immune system. Control patients were found to have normal range in both the peripheral immune and spleen areas. Patients with chronic inflammatory conditions (carcinoma in situ, chronic and symptomatic Epstein Barr infection, rheumatoid arthritis, leukemia) had higher-than-normal electrical conductances in peripheral immune system points, with normal ranges for spleen points that were, however, statistically different than the control group. Patients with degenerative diseases (cancer, AIDS) had electrical conductances at spleen points below the normal range. Dr. Brewitt found that early stages of cancer, chronic viral infection (Epstein Barr and human immunodeficiency virus) and chronic inflammatory diseases are characterised by hyper – conductances at skin points associated with lymphatics, joints, and connective tissue compared to the same points in controls. In contrast, terminal stages of cancer and AIDS are characterised by lower than normal electrical conductances, especially at the spleen points. Given reliable electrodermal screening instruments, early diagnosis of several significant disease states via measurable changes in electrical conductances may be possible, making it possible to provide early and more effective natural treatment.
Conclusion: Historically and currently, EDS instruments characterise differences between inflammatory and degenerative conditions. Electrical conductance data reviewed correspond with histological reports. In clinical practice, EDS instruments are useful as diagnostic supplements to blood tests, radiographic imagine, and case histories. The integration of reliable and valid bioeletric medical instruments into the clinical setting augments the ability to rapidly evaluate tissue. This is especially relevant for patients suffering from HIV infection, where accurate evaluation of the lymph nodes and spleen have been found to be more effective than blood testing. Bioelectric medicine offers clinicians new quantitative methods for evaluating subtle electromagnetic changes in humans.
EDS: Auto-regulation & Cell Signal Enhancement Bridges / ISSSEEM Magazine Volume 7, Number 2 / Summer 1996
Author: Barbara Brewitt, Ph.D.
Objective: To study the dynamic diagnostic perception of EDS in relation to negative and positive feedback at cell receptors and cell signalling through membrane receptors and channels.
Data Sources & Study Selection: The author references 14 research studies using some form of electrodermal screening in relation to quantifying cellular changes in both healthy and diseased patients.
Data Extraction: Dr. Brewitt conducted baseline research over 12 months between a healthy control patient and a patient infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The latter patient was exposed to electrical signals at various skin-conductance points over a period of yet another 12 months. The patient’s normalised electrical conductance was studied during both diagnosis and treatment.
Results of Data Synthesis: The hypothesis supported by these two case examples is that “health” correlates with a frequent oscillatory period with a low amplitude around a baseline value. Chronic viral illness and other disease states change the electro-magnetic control systems, with consequential loss of coherence. In the case of the HIV patient, auto-regulatory control could be interpreted as a disruption to the positive and negative feedback mechanisms of the immune system. Treatment with electromagnetic fields could entrain lymphocytes to produce more regulated rhythms, and specific electrical frequencies could correspond to growth factors that normally activate G-proteins (critical for transduction processes), possibly inhibiting the HIV virus from further replication.
Conclusion: Disease processes disrupt the body’s normally balanced mechanisms. Current chemical analysis only captures “snapshots” that measure a brief time frame, creating the appearance of a static state where none exists. By measuring electrical resistance’s over time, EDS devices provide clinicians with a dynamic profile of these normal or distorted oscillatory patterns. The evolving field of “bioelectric medicine” holds great promise for the early diagnosis of significant disease states and for earlier and more effective treatments.
Characteristics of Reactive Electropermeable Points on the Auricles of Coronary Heart Disease Patients
Clinical Cardiology (16, 415-419, 1993)
Authors: Keijiro Saku, M.D., Ph.D; Yoshito Mukaino, M.D., Ph.D.; Hong Ying, M.D.; Kikuo Arakawa, M.D., Ph.D. (Department of Internal Medicine, Fukuoka University School of Medicine, Fukuoka City, Japan)
Objective: To study the reactive electropermeable points (REPP) on the auricles of patients with coronary heart disease against the shin and shinzo acupunctural points relating to the heart, using a neurometer LC-M. The authors studied the loci of REPP, shin and shinzo in relation to heart disease, and tested the relationship between electrical resistance’s in the tissues of the auricle and coronary heart disease.
Data Sources & Study Selection: The authors reviewed eight references detailing auricular diagnosis and the physiological interpretations of acupuncture and moxa.
Data Extraction: The authors investigated and measured electrical resistance in all areas of the auricle to test for any patterns of auricle sensitivity in heart disease patients. This blind study was conducted from March to August 1989 at Fukuoka University Hospital, Department of Internal Medicine. The authors investigated four different groups: (1) patients with myocardial infarction (AIM); (2) patients with old myocardial infarction and anginal attack (OMI); (3) patients with angina pectoris (AP); and (4) healthy control group. The auricle tests were supplemented with electrocardiograms, ultrasonic coronary exams, and coronary-arterial construction.
Results of Data Synthesis: The incidence of positive REPP test results at the shin and shinzo points for subjects with acute myocardial infarction (AIM) were extremely high, and positive test results for patients with old myocardial infarction (OMI) and angina pectoris (AP) were also significant. There was no significant difference in the incidence rates of REPP at the shin and shinzo points between the OMI and AP groups. High incidence of positive REPP test results at the lung and heart III (shinyu) points occurred only in the AIM group, and this was significantly high when compared with the control group.
Conclusion: The incidence of positive REPP test results at the acupuncture (shin and shinzo) points for the heart for subjects with acute myocardial infarction (AIM) were extremely high, and positive test results for patients with old myocardial infarction (OMI) and angina pectoris (AP) were significant.
Specific Desensitisation to Chemicals: A Pilot Study of 100 Patients
Writers: Miklos L. Boczko, M.D., and Lawrence J. Caprio, N.D., 830 Post Road East, Westport, Connecticut, 06880
Objective: The presence of natural and synthetic chemicals in the environment and their ill effects are becoming a serious health concern. It is estimated that nearly 40 million Americans (1 in 6) presently suffer from allergic symptoms. This study reflects the authors’ experience over seven years using a modified Rinkel method of neutralisation in the treatment of chemically sensitive individuals. The authors set out to discover whether their method was an effective way to treat chemical sensitivity.
Design: 100 cases were randomly selected from a patient population of 5,813. The pilot study was limited to a few pervasive chemicals. The authors modified the Rinkel technique. First, they did not use interdermal or sublingual challenges of actual substances (as is traditionally done by clinical ecologists). Instead, the instrument they used was a programmed computer system that generated an electrical signal of any one of a vast array of stored data obtained from the chemical panel. (The standard chemical panel comprises 120 chemicals of which the most important are formaldehyde, hydrocarbons [such as natural gas, auto exhaust, etc.] chlorine, tobacco smoke, perfume, phenol, solvents, and pesticides. Patients were also screened for foods, pollen, mold, candida, dust, and epidermals. When indicated, hormones, neurotransmitters, heavy metals, and other substances were tested. Epicutaneous testing was used for verification.) End points were identified by the suppression of electrical skin conductance. These helped determine the dilution of the selfadministered sublingual neutralising dose of the offending substance for each individual patient.
Setting: Patients from a private medical and a naturopathic practice over a span of seven years.
Patients: All patients involved in the study underwent routine histories and physical examinations, as well as environmental questionnaires. The authors reviewed medical records and laboratory data from the patients’ family practitioners. Those patients chosen to participate in the study had the severest symptoms and had encountered little-to-no relief from previous conventional medical treatments. Selected patients were further investigated for specific problems: endocrine, metabolic, neurological, gastrointestinal, and microbiological. The study utilised electrodermal screening — a computerised skin-conductance testing instrument (LISTEN SYSTEM, from BioSource, Inc., Orem, Utah) based on the Voll principle.
Interventions: The specific treatment was carried out by self-administered, sublingua neutralising doses of the offending substance. Patients were instructed to administer 2 drops of the solution 3 times a day. This dosage was found to be safe for most patients. Treatment vials were prepared by using 0.4 cc of the neutralising dilution and adding 9.6 cc non-preserved sterile water.
Results: Objective electrodermal measurements, subjective reports from the patient, and the necessity for ongoing desensitisation allowed the authors to place patients in the following categories: recovery, improvement, no improvement. In this study, 90% of all patients received some degree of remission (18% full remission, 72% partial) and only 10% reported no improvement.
Conclusion: The action mechanism of the authors’ method remains unknown. The authors believe that the subcutaneous or sublingual immunotherapy used by clinical cologists works in an entirely different manner than the method tested here. They have concluded, from this study, that their method provides successful, specific treatment for the chemically sensitive patient. That treatment has proven to be non-provocative, non-invasive, safe, and applicable to all age groups, and provides easily reproducible end-point determinations over extended periods of time.
