The BioMeridian is a revolutionary FDA-certified medical testing device I use to assess a patient’s energy level and ability to maximize and maintain health. I continually investigate and incorporate new procedures and techniques that allow me to deliver optimal health solutions for my patients. I remain excited about the BioMeridian and find it a valuable adjunct to my chiropractic practice. It offers the capability to measure “electrical circuits” in the body that provide critical information about specific organs and systems.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) posits that our health is regulated by the proper flow of chi (life force) through the meridians that correspond to various organ systems. Electroacupuncture theory posits that when there is a disturbance from blockage or excessive flow in the meridian, there will be a change in the electrical skin resistance at certain points on the meridian. High resistance is taken as a blockage, low resistance as a manifestation of excess, and a middle resistance as indication of proper flow or organ balance.
The theories of Dr. Heinrich Reckeweg became the practice known as Homotoxicology and are based on the fact that disease and illness are the body’s response to toxicity and initially present as inflammation. The more toxins are accumulated in our body the more prone we are to disease. Homotoxicology works to reverse this process of intoxication and restore health. The body attempts to rid itself of disease by hot, red, painful eruptions, diarrhea, and vomiting, etcetera. If the body cannot throw off the toxin or infection or if the normal inflammatory process is subverted or suppressed by drugs, the organ function can become depressed and subject to degeneration and cellular changes.
I view the BioMeridian as a kind of “time machine x-ray” that reveals these changes, either improvement or degeneration, since they are reflected first in the bioelectric or “energy” body, then in symptomatic physiology, and lastly in actual physical, structural change. This is true whether we are tending toward health (balance) or disease (imbalance). The level of health or deterioration in your cells is a direct result of your ability to deliver appropriate nutrients to them and eliminate toxic waste products. Barriers to that delivery and waste removal system can be measured as resistance in your bioelectric field. This is what the BioMeridian does because it combines the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Electro-acupuncture, and Homotoxicology with state-of-the-art technology to accurately determine the areas of greatest toxicity and inflammation.
Although the device measures resistance in the body’s acupuncture meridians, there are no needles involved and the procedure is entirely painless. This simple 20-minute test consists of using two electrodes: one electrode held in a hand and the other on one of 56 specific acupuncture points on the other hand or a foot that correspond to an organ or system function. The machine and its associated computer record the skin resistance after the electrode is placed on the point. The current is too small to be felt. The revolutionary software built into the BioMeridian is then able to synthesize and analyze that information to provide an extremely valuable and easy-to-understand color bar graph revealing which of your body systems are in balance, under stress, or severely weakened.This snapshot of your current bioelectrical field reveals the underlying patterns that have not only produced your current level of health but also indicate the areas that need strengthening to prevent the development of future problems. The BioMeridian also suggests possible remedies to help you move toward increased balance. With the BioMeridian we have objective documentation of progress from following a treatment program of herbs and whole food concentrates, tracked visit to visit.
This type of device has been in use all over the world, by many different types of physicians, for over 60 years. What makes the BioMeridian unique is the sophisticated engineering of the measuring probe and the data processing capability of the software, both of which have only been made possible in the last eight years through several scientific and engineering breakthroughs. These improvements render the measurements more accurate, objective, reproducible, and reliable than ever before, and provide the sophisticated and instantaneous analysis of a large body of data.
If you are looking for support solutions for long-term health concerns or simply want to get an edge on performance and energy, this evaluation may provide your answers. Together we will consider a variety of possible protocols for you, including dietary and lifestyle changes, whole food nutritional supplementation, herbs, and other natural means to bring abnormal electrical patterns into equilibrium. This test would benefit anyone interested in examining and improving their body’s functional energetic status. This applies to those who are unwell and looking to improve their health as well as those who have no diagnosable illness but would like to optimize their current state of health and possibly prevent future negative health issues.
