Bio-Energetic (EAV/EDS/) Assessment
The bio-energetic evaluation is based on the energetic function of the meridian system. The meridians are energetic pathways which pass through tissues and organs. Research has proven that bio-electrical energy flows through each meridian to associated organs and systems adjusting and harmonizing their activity. During a bio-energetic assessment we can access these energy channels painlessly and non-invasively by measuring with a probe, acupuncture points on the hands and feet. The measurements are displayed on a computer screen as the practitioner is testing, indicating the energetic level of the corresponding organs and systems. Once the evaluation is complete, we can then access an extensive database to consider thousands of items to help restore balance to your individual system. More information on this assessment is available below.
In the late 1940’s, a German medical doctor and engineer, Dr. Reinhard Voll, began researching and proving an innovative testing method now known as EAV (Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll, also known as EDS, Electro-Dermal Screening). This method was documented and proven in over a decade of hospital studies in Germany and today EAV is widely used throughout Europe by over 25,000 medical practitioners. In the United States, EAV is currently growing in acceptance particularly by medical practitioners who specialize in “Alternative, Holistic and Biological Medicine” techniques and disciplines.
EAV offers a quick, non-invasive screening method for determining health imbalances. Practitioners typically use EAV as a compliment to those standard testing procedures in common use. EAV has great value in giving practitioners a “hands on” assessment tool. It should be clearly understood that EAV/EDS testing is not a “standard medical procedure”, and today it is not accepted as a standardized diagnostic test for determining any specific medical condition or disease. EAV is an “Energetic” assessment of the individual. And even though EAV is not accepted as a standard medical diagnostic tool, the information provided from an EAV screening is invaluable for the general assessment of a patient’s condition. Additionally, EAV practitioners have found tremendous success using EAV as a powerful tool for determining preventative and “Bio-Compatible” remedy therapies for their patients.
More and more health practitioners are now using EAV testing equipment and many patients are experiencing the benefits of this type of technology. But many patients and practitioners want to know more about EAV testing. The questions that are most commonly asked are:
• What is EAV Testing?
• How does an EAV testing device work?
• What does “Energetic” mean?
The objective of this article is to give you a practical and simple explanation of Electro-Acupuncture Testing (EAV).
EAV Testing is an “Energetic” Testing procedure. So what is Energetic and what kind of “Energy” is this?
Everyone is familiar with the fact that we have many different organs and glands in the body. We are also familiar with the highly organized and complex Nervous System and the Circulatory System. Initially, we consider that all these organs, glands, and systems are physical and chemical in nature. We can touch, see and measure these aspects. We know that science has proven these attributes, and we take science’s accounts of such nature to be true. But there is also an unseen component of all these organs, glands, and systems called the Energetic System. This Energetic System is not physical or chemical in its nature. Instead, it is pure energy.
The Energetic System is virtually invisible. Many people believe that the Energetic System does not exist. Often, it is the nature of our strict analytical minds to deny the existence of that which cannot be seen. Medical science believes that the energetic System does not exist because the nature of science is to deny the existence of that which cannot be measured and it is difficult for scientific experts to validate this type of energy, because it is not measurable, at least not by current day technologies. Some individuals claim to be able to see “Auras”, and “Chakras” and some claim they can “Feel” different energies in the body. These types of phenomena are examples of the Energetic System. But generally we can’t feel this Energy, we can’t see it, and we can’t measure it. So how do we know that it exists?
It is best that we start our explanation of the Energetic system with a basic understanding of Acupuncture. For centuries, Chinese doctors have been practicing the art of “Acupuncture”. Acupuncture is based on a system of “Meridians”. The Meridians are explained as a network of “Energy” channels that are used for communication and for moving energy throughout the body. An acupuncture physician uses needles that are placed at specific “Points” to stimulate the flow of Energy to specific organs and glands. For example the needle may be placed near the base of the index (pointer) finger to stimulate the Large Intestine, or near the back of the temple and to the front and top of the ear, to stimulate the Hypothalamus Gland.
There are twenty-one (21), basic EAV Meridians (Chinese doctors typically use 12 Meridians), each corresponding to the major organs and glands of the body. Along each of these Meridians, there are found to be many Acupuncture “Points”. Each acupuncture point on a Meridian will correspond to either a specific glands, or to the various functional regions found within an organ. All totaled, there are hundreds of different points located along the basic twenty-one Meridians. This Energetic System is an intricate map that is consistently identical in every man and woman. Everyone has the same Meridians and the same Acupuncture Points. The Chinese have known about this map for over 3,000 years. They have had success in using this knowledge of the Energetic System of the body through the application of Acupuncture techniques for health improvement. Their empirical success alone offers substantiated proof of the Energetic System.
Additionally, there are other examples that verify proof of the Energetic System. Cameras equipped with special film can detect images of Energetic Aura’s found around living things. Science has just recently made successful displays of the existence of the Energetic System through the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMRI) Systems.
Many dispute the real existence of Acupuncture and the Energetic System because it cannot be physically detected. Once again we have limited our ability to accept the newest scientific information as fact due to our analytical character. We are so prone to adhere to the familiar adage that we believe only that which we see, or “Seeing is believing’. But we must remember that the simplest things in nature are not always visible, such as the wind and sounds, yet we all know that they are there, and they are real. The facts are thus, that the Energetic System does exist. Consequently, having a good understanding of this remarkable system can give us access to a more complete understanding of the nature of health.
The Energetic System is a network of communication pathways. This System is aware of everything that is going on in even the smallest corner of your body. The Energetic System knows the presence of every organism living in your body including all viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. It also knows the functional condition and health level of every cell in your body. The Energetic System is also aware of every toxin and every other factor that influences your state of health. If we could find a way to directly tap into and measure the Energetic System, we could determine, at any moment, everything about your health condition. Just imagine the possibilities of this idea. This sounds like science fiction, something you would see on “Star Trek”. Someday, this type of medical technology may be a reality. But today, we have to remember that we have not created a technology that can directly measure and communicate with the Energetic System. This is disappointing, however, there is a bright side to this story. Using current technology we can indirectly measure the Energetic System.
An EAV Testing Device indirectly measures the Energetic System by using electricity.
In Germany in the late 1940’s, Dr. Reinhard Voll was experimenting with the effects of electricity on the human body. In his studies, Dr. Voll used a technique known as Electrical Conductivity Metering. We can explain this in simple terms. Electricity flows very easily through some materials making them very electrically conductive. Gold, silver and copper are all very electrically conductive. Other materials are not conductive, for example dry wood or rubber. We can use a “Conductivity Meter” to measure the electrical conductance of different materials.
Dr. Voll found that if he tested the electrical conductance on any general area of the human body, there was a fairly low level of electrical conductivity. This is a curious conclusion since we know that the body has a large volume of electrically conductive fluids within it. But, the skin, by its nature, is very resistant to electrical current. However, Dr. Voll also found that at certain specific locations on the anatomy, the electrical flow he measured was much more conductive than other locations. These points found by Voll to be higher in electrical flow correspond to the Acupuncture Points and Meridians.
An EAV device is a type of Electrical Conductivity Meter. Some of the newer generation devices are connected to computers with specialized software, but essentially, any EAV device is a Conductivity Meter. In using an EAV device, the practitioner tests each Meridian Point with a Point Probe [a positive electrode (+)]. This is a stylus with a metal tip, usually made of brass. The practitioner tests the conductivity of different Points by applying the Point Probe onto one Point at a time on a patient’s hands or feet, while the patient holds a brass cylinder called a Ground Electrode or “Hand Mass” [the negative electrode (-)] in the hand not being tested. Both the Point Probe and Hand Mass are connected with electrical cables to the EAV device. With the patient holding the Ground Electrode in one hand, the EAV practitioner will touch the Point Probe at a specific EAV point. In the instant when the Point Probe touches the skin the Ground Electrode passes a very slight amount of electrical current through the body. The electricity seeks the path of “least resistance” and courses through the corresponding Meridian, finding its way to the Point Probe. The amount of electricity is so slight that you cannot feel it (less than 1.5 volts and less than 10 micro amps), but it is enough to be accurately measured. If an EAV device uses more than 1.5 volts, such voltage disturbs the Meridians resulting in inaccurate measurements.
This is the nature of EAV testing. We use electrical current to measure the Meridians. We have to keep in mind that this is an indirect measurement of the Energetic System, and it is not the perfect solution. We also must keep in mind that Energetic Testing, EAV, is not the same thing as standard physiological, pathological and biochemical medical health measurements. When a practitioner tests the Liver Meridian with an EAV device he is not testing the actual Liver, he is testing the Energetic component of the Liver. Yet the technology works, in fact it works very well, and it opens the doorway to the vast possibilities of communicating with the Energetic System.
Using an EAV to measure electricity is the first step. The next question is; how to we go from electrical conductance measurement to a useful assessment of the Energetic System?
We know some useful points and from these we can make some viable conclusions:
• Electricity will flow through a Meridian.
• The nature of how electricity flows through a specific Meridian is directly related to how Energy flows through the specific Meridian.
• The flow of Energy is related to the Energetic health of a Meridian. And therefore we know that the flow of electricity is also related, just as the Energy is, to the health of the Meridian.
The “Universal Baseline” makes EAV a viable testing method.
A Balanced Reading: The EAV Meter gives us conductance readings and there is intrinsic value in this; however the actual reason that we can use EAV to evaluate the meridians is because, as Dr. Voll discovered that there is a Universal Baseline. Regardless of who is tested, no matter what their age, weight, sex, or race, a reading of 50 with no change over time (no indicator drop), is an indication of an Energetically healthy or “Balanced” meridian.
Irritation and Inflammation: Readings at points that are significantly above 50 (65+) indicate “Irritation” of the Meridian. Readings above 75 exhibit “Inflammation” of a Meridian. This is easily understood. We all have observed or experienced that inflamed tissue is swollen. It holds more liquid than its normal state of being. We also know that the more liquid equates to more electrical conductivity. Therefore, we should have a higher conductivity reading if a tissue is inflamed.
Indicator Drops and Impaired Functionality: When a reading steadily drops in value from the high point down, this is known as an “Indicator Drop” (ID), and this can display a weakness or disturbance in the meridian. From a functional standpoint it can be said that the Meridian is “Functionally Impaired”.
Functionally Compromised Readings: When a reading is significantly lower than 50 (below 40) then it is believed that this meridian is displaying “low energy” properties. A chronically inflamed organ will eventually stop performing as it loses the fight. It may become hardened, as happens in liver cirrhosis. As organs harden, they lose their hydration, and thus cannot conduct electricity as they once did, therefore producing “low energy” readings.
A practitioner can test all of the basic Meridians in just a few minutes and by evaluating each Reading he can determine the general Energetic condition of all the organs and glands.
Remedy Testing expands the range of capability in EAV Testing.
In his studies, Dr. Voll discovered “Remedy Testing”. He found that different remedies might affect the readings on different Meridians. For example, if you are testing the Liver Meridian and the practitioner tests several different remedies on the “Test Plate” (a metal plate used for remedy Testing on an EAV device), some of these remedies may change the conductance readings on the Liver Meridian. If a particular remedy causes the Liver Meridian reading to become more “Balanced” (closer to 50, and less Indicator Drop or flatter), then the practitioner would consider this specific remedy to be “Bio-Compatible”. Biocompatible means; the remedy produces a favorable or “Positive Response” Energetically.
What makes Remedy Testing a remarkable tool is that the Remedy is being tested on an Energetic level. The patient does not have to ingest the remedy, smell the remedy, see the remedy or feel the remedy. Earlier we mentioned that the Energetic System is extremely sensitive and aware to everything going on in your body. It is also sensitive to everything outside of your body within a certain range. If you come within close proximity to anything, your body’s Energetic System will know the nature of that substance. Just as your body has an Energy field surrounding it so does every other creature and substance. Every remedy has its own specific Energy field and when your body senses this field it knows what the remedy is. This Energy field will pass through glass or plastic bottles with no interference, and your Energetic System knows what is inside a sealed bottle.
Much of EAV Remedy Testing is based on a specific type of remedy called Homeopathy. A Homeopathic Remedy is made by successively diluting a substance in water (alcohol or glycerin is added to stabilize the remedy). The dilution process is repeated many times to the point where there is very, very little, or even none of the original substance in the solution. The more diluted the Homeopathic the more powerful it becomes. This is difficult to fathom because we are use to chemical remedies, but Homeopathy is more of an Energetic or Informational Remedy.
A homeopathic remedy does not affect the body through chemistry; rather it stimulates the body’s own mechanisms through an Energetic Signal. For example, homeopathically prepared Mercury is not toxic and creates no side effect in the body, but it can stimulate the body’s own mechanisms to detoxify itself of Mercury. Using this information let’s say we take a Mercury homeopathic remedy and test this on the Liver Meridian with an EAV device. If we get a favorable balancing response, then we can assume that this remedy is Biocompatible to the Liver Meridian. And, on an Energetic level we can say that the body is toxic with Mercury.
Using this testing model, Dr. Voll and his researchers developed a well organized, methodology for EAV. To this day European EAV practitioners use hundreds of homeopathically prepared test samples (bottled in sealed 1 ml. ampoules), to determine what types of toxins, virus, bacteria, parasites, fungus, environmental effects and allergies Energetically affect the Meridians. Even emotional aspects can be tested in this manner. Recent technological advances in the United States have taken this method one step further with the addition of computers technology. The process of taking small test ampoules, one at a time and placing them on the Test Plate is slow and cumbersome. A computer can automate and expedite this procedure using some advanced techniques.
About twenty years ago, a group of researchers in the US were experimenting with the idea of creating a computer interfaced EAV device. At first they built a system that automatically switched homeopathic test ampoules arranged in an electronic circuit. The computer would display the name of the test ampoule on the monitor and the electronics would select the desired ampoule in the circuit. This method was similar to placing ampoules on the Test Plate, except the computer automated the tedious process. But in their studies these researchers also stumbled onto a remarkable dynamic. Often the computer interface to the circuit would function improperly, yet the test results would remain very effective. The researchers discovered that using the word for the remedy, on the screen of the computer would produce satisfactory results.
If you are a bit confused or disgruntled by this idea, that you can test remedies by just showing the name of the remedy on the screen of a computer, well it is completely understandable. Earlier we explained how you could test remedies while they are sealed in a bottle. This is a stretch in itself. Keep in mind that the Energetic System is ultra-sensitive, in ways that we cannot completely comprehend. We can’t explain how this Remedy Word testing works. We only know that it does work and it has been used for decades by hundreds of practitioners with remarkable results. And the results are far beyond the convenient explanation of coincidence. There truly is much that cannot be explained between heaven and earth. But, just because we cannot explain it does not imply that that it does not exist.
EAV Testing is the first technological application designed to measure the inexplicably illusive Energetic System of the human body. EAV is not intended to be a replacement to other patient health evaluation methods, rather EAV Testing functions best as a complimentary addition to standard testing methods. EAV Testing has certain aspects that are inherently subjective. But in the final analysis, EAV offers a source of valuable assessment information, unattainable in any other fashion. Individuals concerned about longevity, wellness, preventative care, natural healing methods and alternative therapies will find EAV to be an unparalleled source for answers. And for all of these reasons, the number of EAV practitioners and patients seeking this type of health assessment in the United States is on the rise.

BioEnergetic (EAV/EDS) Assessments Explained
Electro-Acupuncture Testing, Electro-Acupuncture According to Dr. Voll (EAV), is a valuable testing technology. There is an ongoing discussion regarding the following questions:
• What is EAV and how does it work?
• Is EAV a viable, valid and valuable testing modality?
• How can it be possible to test different remedies?
• How can you test different remedies on the computerized instruments?
• How do the computers get the remedies inside the software?
This article will attempt to answer these questions.
Every EAV instrument is an OHM meter, i.e. It measures one thing – electrical impedance.
In the late 1940’s, Dr. Reinholt Voll, MD began an investigation of the effects of electricity on the human physiology. In his studies, Dr. Voll used a technique known as Impedance or OHM metering. In simple terms, some materials are very electrically conductive, for example metals like steel and copper – electricity flows very easily through metals and therefore there is no substantial resistance on the electricity flowing through the metal. Other materials are not conductive, for example wood or rubber, and since these materials are not conductive, their resistance to electrical current is very high. An OHM meter measures electrical resistance (impedance), and it is also capable of measuring conductance since the inverse of resistance (1/resistivity approximately), is conductance.
Dr. Voll found that if he tested the electrical conductance on any general area of the human body, there was a fairly high level of electrical resistance. This is a curious point since we know that the body has a large volume of electrically conductive fluids within it. But, the skin is very resistant, by its nature to electrical current. Dr. Voll also found that at certain specific locations on the anatomy, the electrical flow is much more conductive, and these points generally correspond to the Eastern Medical Acupuncture points. Therefore, you can use an impedance or OHM meter to test the acupuncture points. This is somewhat simplistic, but it does describe the basic process of EAV.
EAV Testing indirectly measures the “Energetic System” of the body. It does not measure the physiology, the biochemistry or the pathology components of the human body. However, the “Energetic System” is related to these components, from the standpoint of physics, not chemistry.
Acupuncture is a science that works with the “Energetic” system of the body.
The human body is biochemical (physical). It has an electrical component and also an energetic aspect as well. The acupuncture meridians are a communication and energetic flow network.
“Energetic”, in this sense, is a somewhat elusive term. Yes, the meridians do have some form of energy, but it is not electricity. There is a controversy about the validity of Acupuncture because scientists cannot measure the energetic system of the body directly, i.e. they cannot prove that acupuncture meridians exists using conventional measurements. It is important that you keep this fact in mind. EAV does not directly measure the acupuncture/energetic system of the body directly. This is not scientifically possible at this time. But, there is a bio-physiological phenomenon that occurs when you run electricity through the acupuncture points. The electrical flow (conductance) gives us an indication of the energetic health status of the meridian that we are testing. For example, if you are testing the Liver Meridian with an EAV instrument, the meter will give an indication of the Liver Meridian’s energetic status. Remember, energetic is not electrical, but we can use electricity to indirectly measure the energetic system.
The “Universal Baseline” makes EAV a viable testing modality.
The EAV/OHM meter gives us conductance readings and there is intrinsic value in this; however the actual reason that we can use EAV to evaluate the meridians is because, as Dr. Voll discovered, there is a Universal Baseline. Regardless of who is tested, no matter what their age, weight, sex, nationality or race, a reading of 50 with no change over time (no indicator drop), is an indication of an energetically healthy meridian. Readings that are significantly above 50 (65 plus) indicate inflammation, and this is due to the fact that when tissue becomes inflamed, the concentration of body fluids increases and therefore the conductance will increase accordingly. This inflammation occurs in the tissue and also in the proximity of the related acupuncture point as well. When a reading is significantly lower than 50 (below 30) then it is believed that this meridian is low energy or possibly degenerative. When a reading steadily drops in value from the high point down, this is known as an “Indicator Drop” (ID), and it can point to a weakness or disturbance in the meridian.
EAV is a valid health screening modality because the readings are reproducible.
If you take a patient and then have three very well trained EAV practitioners test that same patient (points only and not different Remedies), one practitioner following the other, you will get essentially the same test results. There will be slight differences, but the overall test will be the same. The operative factor here is “well trained”. There is a specific technique to EAV Testing and it can be learned. The key is learning how to get a correct reading on a particular point. The difficulty is in accurately testing the actual point and not something else in the proximity of the point!
The acupuncture points lie close to the bone in the fascia between the bone and the overlying tissue. To test a meridian point you have to get the Point Probe electrode (the instrument used to take a conductance reading), close to the bone. The problem is that the point has a specific location and the skin covers that location. It is very easy to disturb the skin when taking a reading and this causes the readings to elevate dramatically. It is also difficult to find the point location. There is no road-guide map to show the exact point placement. The process of learning EAV involves some basic techniques as well as getting a sense of feel. The only way that a practitioner can determine the proper placement of the Point Probe and the proper testing pressure is by good training, dedicated practice and ultimately, “feel”.
Learning EAV is similar to learning to play a musical instrument. Anyone can tap a key and play a note on a piano, just as anyone can put a Point Probe on the skin of a patient and get a reading. But, it takes practice to learn how to play the notes of a song, and it takes a sense of feel to turn those notes into something that is musical. Without the feeling, the notes sound mechanical.
EAV requires both art and science.
Every EAV device is a technical instrument, but without the intuitive feeling of the practitioner it is useless for testing acupuncture points. Notably, this dissuades the interest of many practitioners. But this sensitivity and feeling is a fundamental component of medicine.
You can put a scalpel in the hand of any medical school student and tell him where to cut, how deep and the length of the incision. But the difference that qualifies a top surgeon is in part due to his sense of how to cut, which can only come from his experience and his intuitive sense of surgical cutting.
1. Good acupuncturists feel where to place the needles.
2. Good chiropractors feel where and how to adjust.
3. A good psychotherapist must go beyond the words his patient is saying and intuit into what is being conveyed.
EAV is a valuable test because it gives us a powerful, energetic insight into the physiology, biochemistry and pathology of an individual.
Keep in mind that EAV is indirectly testing the Energetic System, not the physiology, biochemistry or pathology of the body. Making any inference about the health of the body through EAV must be kept in the domain of energetically related indications. EAV status is closely related to all of these other factors and it can be an indicator or qualitative screening tool, but it is not testing the actual physiology, nor the biochemistry or pathology.
So, what is the value of EAV, since it is only a relative indicator?
It would be a mistake to assume that EAV is not measuring a valuable parameter. When a practitioner uses standard blood test values, the purpose is in part to get a better understanding of the health of the cells of the body.
“Health” in reality can be broken down to the health of the tissue, the organs and the glands, and these are composed of cells. But when you are measuring the blood, you are not measuring the cells directly. It is extremely difficult to measure the cells but we can indirectly get a sense of what is going on within the cells by measuring the blood.
Similarly, the energetic system is a component of the body. It is related to everything going on in the body, and therefore, measuring the energetic system gives us a valuable, non-invasive sense of everything that is going on within the body.
EAV is also valuable because it offers “Remedy Testing”.
Over the course of two decades, Dr. Voll and his associates perfected EAV Testing. They based all of their findings on clinically proven cases in hospitals in Germany.
By accident, they discovered Remedy Testing. In the routine course of EAV Testing a regular patient, they noticed that the remedies that were being kept in the patient’s topcoat significantly altered the patient’s EAV readings!
The nature of Remedy Testing is simple. If you find a meridian with an unfavorable reading (low, high or with an Indicator Drop), you can test different remedies on the patient. If a given remedy is favorable to the meridian, it will then alter the reading, bringing it closer to the ideal (50 and no ID).
How do you actually test the remedy?
The technique of Remedy Testing is simple. A remedy is brought into the energetic field of the patient and the practitioner performs an EAV reading. The remedy has its own electro-magnetic/Energetic field. This is a unique energy field emanating from the remedy, and this field completely describes the remedy.
Every cell in the body has the capacity to distinguish the remedy by sensing into this electro-magnetic field. Therefore, on a subconscious level you know what is in the remedy, even if you cannot taste, smell or even see the remedy. This may be difficult to believe since we rely on and trust in our conscious senses. But we are not completely conscious of everything that occurs in our environment. And, just because we are not conscious of something, does not prove that it does not exist.
You can Remedy Test by having the patient hold the remedy, or you can set the remedy on a metal plate that is connected electrically to the patient. All EAV devices have some type of test plate. This plate brings the remedy’s electro-magnetic field into the ultra-sensitive field of the patient.
Remedy Testing can give us clues about the cause of a patient’s condition.
One class or type of remedy therapy that is widely used in EAV Testing is Homeopathy. Homeopathy is based on the principal that if something is harmful to a body in its raw form, then if you dilute the substance down to a minute concentration it can be beneficial in reversing the harmful effects of the original substance.
Often, the puzzle of what is really going on with a particular patient is locked deep within the cells. An example may be pesticide toxicity causing liver disorders. A standard blood test will generally reveal absolutely nothing about this condition. Taking chemical assays of the blood and urine may give a doctor some indications of pesticide toxicity, but it is very doubtful that the indications will point specifically to the liver.
With an EAV test, unfavorable readings may indicate a disturbance in the liver. The practitioner may proceed in looking deeper into the situation by choosing to use Remedy Testing. He may find that a homeopathic preparation of different pesticides may improve the readings and concludes that this patient, energetically, may have pesticide poisoning. At this point it should be noted and understood that this scenario may indicate energetic pesticide toxicity in the liver, but even if the readings are improved greatly by the pesticide homeopathic, this is not a foolproof indicator. It is very possible that the patient may respond to the homeopathic preparation even if he does not have pesticide toxicity!
Never forget that EAV is energetic testing. Homeopathic remedies are an energetic treatment. This is not rock solid biochemistry or pathology testing. This procedure dominantly emphasizes physics. The point is to get the patient well. EAV Remedy Testing gives us a useful indicator of remedy effectiveness. It can also be used to help unravel the question of what has occurred in the past, what is occurring presently and what is likely to develop in the future.
Computerized EAV Systems improve testing efficiency and efficacy.
Early generation EAV meters used an analog needle meter, similar to the speedometer in an automobile. The next progression in EAV technology involved the interfacing of the meter with a computer and custom software. Computers are very useful at displaying information, saving and comparing data and organizing information in database fashion. EAV practitioners used organized “trays” made of cardboard, each containing 100 to 200 Remedies organized in rows and columns. The doctors would physically retrieve the trays and test the individual items, a very cumbersome, tedious process. One of the goals in computerized EAV was to better organize and access the thousands of different Remedies that are used in testing.
The first generation computer EAV instruments attempted to develop systems that would provide access to hundreds of different remedies sealed in 1-milliliter test ampoules, built into an elaborate, electronic switching mechanism. The computer would display the remedy on the monitor and then go out and switch the electronics to bring the field of the remedy from the trays into the circuit with the patient. The technology was similar to placing the remedy on the test plate but much more efficient. However, the cost to build this apparatus was exorbitant and the instruments were very unreliable. By accident, it was found that when the computer was disconnected from the electronic remedy tray system the testing still worked. In other words, with only a remedy displayed as a word on the screen, the testing system worked!
The next generation of computerized EAV used this phenomenon, dubbing it the “Holo-Linguistic Effect”, “Holo”, meaning dimensionality and Linguistic meaning language or words. Thus, you get a fancy way of saying that words on the screen of a computer are more than just words on the screen of a computer.
How this mechanism works is unknown. There have been attempts to explain the phenomenon by means of quantum physics. It may be more understandable and accurate to say that this phenomenon is related to the intuitive side of EAV. In every sense, EAV Testing depends on the developed skills, abilities, intuition, intent and focus of the practitioner. The value of these factors should not be discounted. In many ways, they may be the key element in the healing process. Why is it that one patient gets well and another doesn’t? The belief factor, the intent and “bedside manner” of the practitioner can play a critical role in getting someone well.
The “Words on the Screen” technique works. It has proven itself in tens of thousands of case histories. The results go far beyond the scope of coincidence. Is this a foolproof solution? No, of course not. Can the instrument be misused? Yes, and this has a lot to do with the intentions of the practitioner. Is “Word Testing” as accurate as testing the actual remedy? The question again clearly relates to the developed skills, abilities, intuition, intent and focus of the practitioner. If a practitioner’s overall skills are questionable, then the results can be distorted. But, if the practitioner’s ability and intent is clear and clean, then “Word” Testing can be very effective.
The advantage of Word Testing is simple. A computer can organize, display and sort through thousands of remedies in a very efficient manner. A practitioner can literally start with 20,000 different remedies and sort down to the few key remedies in a short period of time by using the facilities of an EAV Computerized System.
Current generation computerized EAV Systems do not have “Remedy Frequencies” in the software.
The concept of “Word” Testing is just too simple and too unbelievable. “There must be some sort of technical magic involved with these devices, some technique that programs the remedies into the computer.” At least, that is what many people are led to believe. This scenario almost sounds plausible until you take a look at some very simple, scientifically accepted, universal truths.
• Every remedy has a frequency, but to say this doesn’t even begin to do justice in describing the complexity and immensity of the frequency pattern of a specific remedy.
• At this time there is no known method that will measure the actual frequency of a remedy. This is far beyond the scope of current day technology.
• If you cannot measure something, then you certainly cannot turn this unknown into a digital signal and program it into a computer.
• Even if you could measure the frequencies and program them in, there is no way for the computer to broadcast them back to you out of the software.
What we are dealing with here is the true essence of nature and life.
A good example is a synthetic vitamin. Synthetic vitamins have the exact molecular structure as the natural counterpart. However, they do not have the same effect in the body. Synthetic vitamins do not absorb as easily, they do not have the same nutritional effects and over a period of time, synthetic vitamins can produce side effects not found with natural vitamins. The synthetics have the correct molecular structure, but they are missing something. They are dead and not alive. The “frequency” in part, accounts for this difference. Actually, the difference is far beyond just a frequency; it is beyond the domain of our present conscious or scientific understanding.
This raises the question: How do you measure and quantify life?
Another example is a high-potency homeopathic remedy. At potencies of 24X (24 dilutions of 1 part per 10) the chance of having one molecule of the original substance in a bottle of a remedy is one in a million. Let’s say we have a 100X homeopathic (one part of the original substance diluted one part per ten, 100 times, basically one drop in a large lake). If we measure this very high potency remedy using a gas chromatograph (an instrument that bends light to measure the specific molecular constituents of any material) we will get a result that tells us, without any question, that what we are dealing with is nothing more than average, ordinary water. Give this 100X remedy to some patients and they certainly will see a different reaction than what you would expect from water. The high potency homeopathic (greater than 24X/12C etc.) has no original substance in it but it carries a powerful frequency signature of the original substance. However, state of the art technology, such as the gas chromatograph, cannot measure this.
Research scientists have spent months trying to decipher the electro-magnetic frequencies of remedies and at best they have come to the conclusion that there are patterns and tendencies, but nothing more exacting than this.
Clearly, we cannot measure the true frequencies of remedies and we certainly cannot digitize and program something that we cannot measure.
In summary, Electro-Acupuncture according to Dr. Voll is a very straightforward technology. EAV devices are simply skin conductance meters with or without a software/computer interface. But in clinical application, the simplicity of this modality cannot explain or justify the value and effectiveness of EAV Testing. EAV stands as a remarkable and viable asset for the forward-looking medical practitioner. Given the nature of EAV Testing, it is understandable why many practitioners often have difficulty believing in and feeling confident in EAV. Some have grasped at stories and answers that seemingly give substance to the inexplicable questions that cannot be answered with our current level of scientific understanding. There are no secret mysterious or magical technologies. In the final analysis, we are left with the fact that EAV works and the critical component is the human element. EAV is the integration of science and art, electronics and intuition, software and intent. And, as Hamlet said, “There is much that cannot be explained between heaven and earth”.
