Energy Devices That Can Diagnose and Treat Your Illnesses
Dr. Mercola’s Comments (July 17, 2008):
Many natural health experts believe that your body is not only made up of tissue, blood vessels and organs. It’s also composed of energy, or chi as it’s called in traditional Chinese medicine, which is produced by your organs.
This energy is circulated through your body along specific meridians, and when points on your skin that correspond to certain meridians are manipulated, the energy circulation and your internal organs are affected.
It used to be that the only way to manipulate these points involved invasive practices such as acupuncture. Then, in the 1950s, Dr. Reinhold Voll discovered that you could test electrical skin resistance and gain information about your chi in a completely non-invasive way. And this marked the beginning of electrodermal screening. Dr. Voll is generally regarded as the “father” of this type of assessment.
If an electrodermal screening finds that certain meridian points are out of balance there are numerous ways, such as massage therapy, herbal medicine and homeopathy, to bring them back into homeostasis.
Dr. William LaValley actually learned this information from Dr. Voll, among many others, and has mastered the skill of using homeopathy to balance your chi.
It’s About Balancing Your Energy, Not Diagnosing
There’s a bit of a misconception that electcrodermal screening is intended to diagnose. In reality, it’s only intended to rebalance your chi, not diagnose anything.
“A diagnosis is made by an entire clinical picture and the electrodermal screening is just a subset of that clinical picture and it is inherently subjective, it’s a subjective tool. It is not objective,” Dr. LaValley says.
For this reason, electrodermal screening is only as successful as its practitioner.
“Let’s say that the practitioner uses the electrodermal screening tool and tests on the large intestine meridian and finds a resonance or a matching with the homeopathic extract that is for a type of parasite,” Dr. LaValley says.
“Many of the electrodermal screening practitioners will say, ‘Oh, well, that means you have that parasite.’ And that is absolutely untrue and there’s no way to prove that unless you prove it by conventional means … This failure of logic is so pervasive and so flagrant that many practitioners actually believe it themselves,” he says.
“The way that I use the tool is, I don’t make any diagnosis from that. What I do is use the tool to help me select what combination of homeopathic prescription remedies I can use to stabilize and equalize the acupuncture energy, meaning to now find what were unequal and unstable skin resistance readings to now get them all to be equal when compared to each other and then to be stable rather than fluctuating,” Dr. LaValley continues.
And it is this energy stability that is associated with robust health.
