Acupuncture - Bioenergetic Medicine

 

Homeopathy with 200 years of clinical experience has taken a quantum shift thanks to computerization and electrodermal screening (EDS). We are able to read symptom and tissue frquencies with the computer, send back healing or balancing frequencies  for normalization. This occurs when resonance of the abnormal frequency is found, this remedy frequency is then held with others, and the process is repeated 20-60 times. By doing hundreds of these rechecks in minutes, we can save you hours of time and recieve what we feel is much better and quicker results in your care. In our office Dr Cliff uses the Asyra or Bax3000 to integrate homeopathy with our energy medicine protocols. With 30 years experience utilizing combined Applied Kinesiology, acupuncture, chiroractic and Homeopathy, we feel we have created the ultimate in Alternative Medicine.

 

Bio-energetic Theory and the Integration of Asyra with Acupuncture and Homeopathy

Stimulation of points on these channels with needles, heat or pressure forms the basis of many forms of health treatment, ancient and modern. The flow of life energy or 'Chi' in these channels relies on them remaining in balance and free of blockages, and our ability to stay healthy and fight off disease in turn depends on this vital flow.

Bio-energetic or Electro-dermal testing devices allow us to assess using galvanic skin response (changes in the electrical resistance of the skin) the state of the acupuncture meridians and therefore of the energetic health of the body. It also allows us, and this is where the real power of the technology lies, to assess how the body will respond to a huge number of different remedies or other substances.

All substances, whether living or non-living, have a characteristic resonant signature. Every specific tissue and organ in the human body has its own individual resonant frequency. By outputting a software-recorded 'copy' of these resonances we can predict how the energetic system of the body will respond to them. This scientific application of traditional methods removes the guesswork that's involved in many analyses (conventional and complementary). This is the science of bio-energetic, or electro-dermal, screening.

In a bio-energetic health screening, the energetic signatures of a large number of substances are individually introduced into the energetic testing circuit and the patient's response is assessed through skin resistance measurements. Galvanic skin response is a well-established principle that is also used in lie detectors.

The absence of change in the patient's skin resistance indicates that the liver is not stressed. If, on the other hand, a patient with an energetically stressed liver has a healthy liver frequency run through the testing circuit, that frequency will not resonate with that person's electromagnetic field relating to their liver tissue. This non-resonance increases the electrical resistance in the person's body. The increase in skin resistance in this case tells us that there is an energetic stress in the liver. Subsequent tests can then be performed with other organs and toxins in order to obtain more information on the nature of the liver disturbance. By conducting a series of organ and toxin tests, we can construct a picture of the patient's health status. This enables a practitioner to identify health challenges at their root and devise treatment accordingly, rather than merely treating symptoms of an underlying challenge.

For example, hair analysis may identify the presence of Iron. However, the hair is a pathway by which the body excretes iron, so we cannot conclude anything about the level of iron currently in other tissues. In many cases there is NO way of using laboratory testing to determine the levels of a toxic substance across the whole body (without killing the patient first!). This is why energetic testing is in many cases more useful. Energetic changes precede cellular changes – if the illness has not progressed to the point where there are cellular or structural changes, conventional tests will usually reveal nothing.

This is not where the implications of bio-energetic technology end. If every substance, living or non-living, emits electromagnetic frequencies based on the amount and rotational speed of their atoms, and if we can identify these frequencies, then we have an extremely valuable tool for treatment. Remedies can be tested for compatibility with specific conditions for every unique case that a client may present. Usin this approach, the practitioner can map out the most effective course of treatment. Furthermore, now that we have a database of frequencies of substances and conditions, we can imprint remedies, bespoke for the individual client's requirements; a digital form of homeopathy completely customized for each case.

In years to come, as the demand for health assessment continues to rise, we will continue to witness the use of energetic testing as an effective preventative method in order to treat illness at its root and at the earliest possible stage.

Energy medicine is growing in popularity, but it is certainly not new. 'Chi' has been an integral part of Chinese medicine for millennia. The success of these well-honed and time-honoured treatments has been well documented anecdotally: a vast number of people know that energy medicine works because they have seen and experienced the results for themselves. As a complementary medicine, clinical research has historically been poorly funded and thereby very limited. Now, science, driven by the need to find methods more effective than symptom-suppressing drugs, is beginning to catch up with experience.

EDS Technology


The Beginning

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image005.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.In the 1900's, Western science began to investigate the ancient theories of electrical energy and wave patterns in living things and objects. A number of scientists (such as Royal Rife) produced studies evaluating the electrical properties of various compounds and concluded that each had its own unique wave pattern or resonant frequency.

When the theories behind acupuncture points first came under scrutiny from western medicine scientists, European researchers validated the existence of such points by way of electrical conductivity readings. The electrical conductivity of these points would become the foundation of Electro-Dermal Screening (EDS).

In 1951, a researcher named Nivoyet established that acupuncture points do in fact have a lower skin resistance than points elsewhere on the body's surface and that by implication, their conductivity is higher.
In 1952, Dr. Walter Schmidt examined patients that had a variety of known disorders. He examined the corresponding acupuncture points using an electrical current and found that resistance at the specific acupuncture points that related to their disorder increased when that organ was malfunctioning. In contrast, this resistance remained constant when the function of a corresponding organ was not impaired.

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image006.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.These two vital findings were not consolidated until 1953, when German physician Dr. Reinhold Voll researched and developed a systematic approach for evaluating the body through skin resistance measurements. Cumbersome and complicated though it was, this was the world's first EDS (Electro-Dermal Screening) system.

Because the techniques Dr. Voll developed were so difficult to implement, German physicians went on to work hard on developing EDS practices that would reduce the quantity of acupuncture point measurements needed, as well as reducing the quantity of remedies required in medication testing. As these modified practices developed, they became known as "Bio-electronic Functions Diagnosis & Therapy" (BFD).

Second Generation EDS

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image007.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.Dr. Helmut Schimmel, a medical and dental physician and clinical researcher from West Germany, worked with BFD for nearly a decade until, in 1978, he developed a third incarnation of the system. The "VEGATEST-Method" or VRT (Vegetative Reflex Test) was the culmination of some thirty years development and experience of German Electro-Acupuncture. The new technology and practices became hugely popular in Germany and spread overseas to the USA, England and Australia.

Computerised EDS

In 1979, an American named James Hoyt Clarke launched a machine named Dermatron. This was the world's first Computerised Electro Dermal Screening (CEDS) system. Clarke would go on working to perfect a computer system capable of taking electro-dermal measurements quickly, simply and accurately. After 16 years of research and development, he achieved this, introducing the LISTEN (Life Information System Ten) System to the world in 1991. This second-generation computerised system allowed faster and simpler operation with more accurate results. Clarke programmed tests against 18,000 substances.

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image008.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.The LISTEN system was the basis for BioMeridian's BEST System, which was released in 1998. Fully Windows compatible, this system would test against 29,000 substances. Because of these radical improvements in accuracy, scope and convenience, EDS and bio-energetic technology gained popularity amongst independent practitioners worldwide. Since then popularity for bio-energetic medicine continued to spread; and science began to catch up. Energy medicine began to gain widespread clinical acceptance, with results now backed by scientifically documented research.

Fourth Generation Computerised EDS

In 2003, the EDS technology evolved from the BEST system to the Asyra. Aside from software developments, by far the most important change was that the Asyra was capable of filtering (through use of specific frequencies) the information it gathered to allow accurate single-point testing. Criticism of EDS until this point had focused on the time and training necessary to take accurate readings. But now, with The Asyra, one site could be screened to obtain all the necessary information, rather than dozens. This represented a major advance in EDS and bio-energetic technology and would make the screening procedure significantly faster and completely non-invasive.

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image009.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.The Asyra brought bio-energetic screening to thousands of independent practitioners worldwide, giving them a better chance than ever of high rates of positive treatment results. This widespread application of the technology in busy private clinics highlighted new demands: practitioners needed the screenings to be faster still; and they needed probing that would be completely insusceptible to practitioner bias or error. Maximum accuracy, consistency and ease of use in minimum time would now be the focus for research and development in the EDS and bio-energetic medicine field.

The Future

To replace this placeholder, please upload the original image (C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image010.jpg) on server and insert it in the document.The Asyra Pro introduced in 2009, marked a significant step forward for the technology. It was one of the first truly flexible probeless EDS devices. Not only did it eliminate operator bias, it also enabled many of the ponderous techniques associated with probing to be automated. In a single stroke screening times were reduced dramatically. So much so, that a test of all major organs and body systems was reduced from around an hour to less than a few minutes. The benefits of this are obvious.

As well as being fast, the Asyra Pro is extremely flexible. Treatment protocols can be tuned to meet the varying needs of individual patients, new protocols can be created and preferred remedies, from any supplier, can be quickly and easily added to the system's database. We can also screen your current supplements for efficacy.

WHAT  RESULTS ARE WE SEEING?

I have always looked for Miracles.  Now I am seeing them everyday.  The diagnostics of the Asrya is almost scary at its accuracy and insight.  Yet it is a tool in its infancy.  There is no queston, all  healthcare practitioners will be using this technology in the near future.

We have seen amazing natural results in the following conditons:

1. Allergy reduction or elimination  (foods, airborne (cats, dogs, pollens)

2. Heat intolerance and balance with MS, Multiple Scleroisis

3. Return of sensation with non diabetic peripheral neuropathies

4. Improved sleep paterns

5, Dramatic reduction of Irritable Bowel Syndrome

6. Good improvement with Fibromyalgia

7. Pain reduction in extremtiy arthritis

8. Dramatic wound healing with burns, cuts, and some inflamatory skin lesions.

9. Improved Digestion in general

10. Tinnitus

11. Hypertension

12. Emotional Stressors

13. Low energy or Chronic Fatigue

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting to get a different result.  If your health is not where you want it to be, perhaps its time to try a different approach.  Bioenergetic Medicine is not a cure all, but it is very safe, effective and affordable.   Please go to www.drcliffordfruithandler.com and preview some of the testimonials.  They are all real people with real issues that have improved.  All had not responded to traditonal care prior.  All you have to loose are your symptom issues.

Heart Troubles For Workaholics

British scientists have found those working more than 11 hours per day increase their risk of heart disease by 67 percent. Considering heart disease is one of the leading causes of death, a two-thirds increase is very significant. This should be a wake-up call for all those workaholics thinking hard work can't kill you. With that said, scientists were not positive of whether it was the long work hours specifically or the things that working long hours could be associated with (poor diets, lack of exercise, increased depression, etc.) that negatively affected heart health. At this point, for those who are stuck working longer hours, it is recommended to minimize other potential risk factors by getting adequate exercise, adhering to a healthy diet, ensuring they receive adequate rest and sleep as well as effectively dealing with any bouts of depression.

Hospital Errors Far More Common Than Previously Thought

A new study finds an astounding one in three hospital stays within the U.S. will be associated with a medical error or mistake. These new findings indicate medical errors are significantly more common than previously thought. In this study, researchers utilized a new tool to help identify medical errors in a review of 795 patient records. In doing so, they were able to identify 10 times the number of medical errors as compared with those found by using the Agency for Healthcare Research's (AHR) process for identifying medical errors. Previous reports of medical errors, many of which were based on the AHR's methods, are likely to have reported far fewer errors than what likely actually occurred. Of the 795 records reviewed in this study, the new method found 354 errors while the AHR's method resulted in the finding of just 35 medical errors. A separate study of medical errors based on insurance claims estimated the annual cost of medical errors resulting in patient harm to be in excess of 17 billion dollars. They found the three most common medical errors were bed sores, post-operative infections and persistent back pain following back surgery.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Help Prevent Age-Related Vision Loss

According to a newly published 10-year study on 38,022 women, omega-3 fatty acid consumption (found at high levels in fish) may help to lessen age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD affects millions of older adults in the U.S. alone and is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly. Doctors have been able to prevent the progression of AMD once identified but are still not able to reverse the disease. This study was therefore important to identify what factors if any might be able to prevent AMD for occurring. Researchers found women who consumed foods with higher levels of DHA and EPA, both omega 3-fatty acids, experienced a 38 percent lower risk for AMD and a 34 percent lower risk for AMD, respectively. However, researchers were not positive if the omega-3 fatty acids were responsible for the lower incident of AMD or that those who consumed more omega-3s were also leading healthier lifestyles that were responsible for the lower incidence of AMD. Clearly more research is necessary. Previously, the only known way to help prevent AMD was to never smoke or for smokers, to stop smoking.

ACA Continues to Fight Boy Scouts’ Discriminatory Policy, but Public Support...

ACA Continues to Fight Boy Scouts' Discriminatory Policy, but Public Support is Crucial

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) today announced that it has developed a template letter for members of the public who oppose the Boy Scouts of America's (BSA) policy change affecting the types of providers allowed to perform annual medical examinations for its youth and adult members. For over a year, the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) has not allowed chiropractic physicians to perform annual evaluations.
Medical doctors, doctors of osteopathic medicine, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants are all eligible to perform these exams. The template letter is available online.

 ACA has sent two letters to BSA headquarters supporting the fact that DCs are qualified to perform annual physicals, voicing its concerns about the policy change and requesting that the previous policy be restored to recognize the state-authorized ability of doctors of chiropractic (DC) to provide annual exams to BSA. The group's decision was not supported by any evidence; in fact, chiropractic physicians performed these evaluations for BSA for more than 22 years prior to the change last year. Furthermore, many DCs are involved with BSA as volunteers, leaders or parents.

 While ACA is doing its part to rescind this policy, support from the public is crucial. The new template letter is designed to be completed by individuals within the scouting community, such as parents of scouts, troop leaders, troop committee members or council leaders. ACA encourages members of the chiropractic community to inform others about the online template.

 DCs and others within the chiropractic community are encouraged to contact BSA to voice their concern as well. A template letter for DCs, as well as BSA's phone number and talking points, are available online.

 The online template letter, when completed, is automatically sent to BSA. The letter for DCs has already generated considerable action by doctors throughout the country. However, despite this action, BSA has refused to rescind or even discuss this policy.  

The National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) and National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) have also sent letters in opposition to this policy, clearly identifying the qualifications of chiropractic physicians to perform annual physical examinations. NUHS has even extended an invitation to BSA to take part in classes on its campus to learn more about chiropractic education.

 "Chiropractic physicians across the country have enjoyed a long-standing involvement with scouting," said ACA President Rick McMichael, DC. "Chiropractic physicians are primary care doctors who are educated and trained to diagnose health problems, treat conditions that are within their scope of practice and refer patients to other health care practitioners when appropriate. The Boy Scouts of America does everyone a disservice with this discriminatory policy. This policy must be changed."

The American Chiropractic Association (ACA), based in Arlington, Va., is the largest professional association in the United States representing doctors of chiropractic. ACA promotes the highest standards of patient care and ethics, and supports research that contributes to the health and well-being of millions of chiropractic patients. Visit www.acatoday.org.

WE CARE, FREE YOURSELF FROM PAIN

 Everyday brings new challenges and new adventures.  In the past few years these challenges may seem overwhelming, yet they are given to us by our higher power to learn.  Some may choose to wallow in self pity, others to stand up and keep on moving forward.  As long as we breathe, we have a chance to make a mark in this realm called today.

Financially challenged?  Look at our brothers in Haiti, the homeless on the corner, the disabled, and those with so much less and be grateful for what we have.  We live in America, the dream of so many so far away.  A place where store shelves are full and opportunity is abundant.  We live in a democracy with freedoms unparallelled elsewhere, lets be grateful.  No matter how poor or unemployed there is food on our plates and clothes to be had.  We live, even our poorest better than much of the Nobles of our past. 

The kingdom of night, that of the darkness we all have at one time or another.  sometimes it takes hitting the bottom, to start over and redesign ourselves, or to bring out the goodness we all have.    I began to appreciate my family, LIFE, AND OTHERS. HERE ARE SIMPLE CHANGES YOU CAN MAKE FOR YOU.

2.DRINK a lot of water, concentrated on eating more vegetables, less carbohydrates and fats. Eliminate (or drastically reduce) soda and most junk foods.  Walk, walk, and walk.   Along with an Organic Multivitamin, nutritional cleanses, Adrenal support and  life force,  your energy, stamina, and clarity of mind will return and you will want to play again.

3.  I joined some Mens GROUPS and Civic clubs, made new friends while renewing my spirituality.  The power of a group with similar individual issuse is incredible.

4. Yoga,  MEDITATION and prayer is an  instant destressor.  Prayer and belief in one  greater than ourselves, can be stress releasing and fear resolving. Acceptance for who I am and my shortcomings allows me to be happy. 

Remember "If it's to be, its up to me." God Bless you.

Allergy Desensitization Study University of Utah

Asyra Logo small
Bioenergetic & Regulative Medicine

The preliminary statistics of an allergy desensitization study were just released from the university of Utah. The complete reporting is to follow soon.   35 patients were followed all of whom had sensitivities to airborne allergens.  Blood markers were used prior and post Asyra treatment. 

 Only four treatments were given.  These results compare with what we see in the office.

Treatment Group 1-25 received an Asyra comprehensive analysis with airborne allergens profiles.  This group received imprinted remedies.  95% showed dramatic reduction in blood antigens for allergies.

Placebo Group 26-30 received placebo remedies, this group showed less than one percent improvement.

Control Group 31-35 were the control and had no treatment.  They had less than one percent improvement.

Red bars are blood markers at the beginning of the study prior to treatment.  Green Bars are the blood studies after 4 treatments.  I assume this was over a 4-5 month period.

All participants received an Asyra comprehensive analysis and airborne allergens profiles before during and at the end of the study. 

More than 70 percent of patients in any general practice suffer from functional disturbances. Simply speaking, a functional disturbance occurs when no specific tissue or organ damage can be identified by conventional lab work or other pathological diagnostics, yet the patient still experiences a myriad of symptoms. Where traditional approaches end, the Asyra system introduces a new perspective for evaluating and developing solutions to these issues.  This study although small appears quite conclusive that the Asyra has a powerful ability to reduce airborne allergy sensitivity.
