Bio energetic medicine is the integration of modern, advanced electronic and computer technology with the ancient wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine.
Thousands of years ago, Chinese medicine identified the meridians or energy channels that form electrical pathways throughout the body. The consistent and unhindered flow of life energy or ‘qi’ in these chanels affects our ability to stay healthy and fight off disease.
Bio-energetic (Electro-dermal) testing devices measure changes in the electrical resistance of the skin (galvanic skin response). This provides an assessment of the ‘energetic’ state of health of the body by looking at the flow of ‘qi’ through acupuncture meridians and the organ systems that they supply. Galvanic skin response is a well-established technique that is also used in lie detectors.
This scientific application of traditional methods removes the guesswork that is so often involved in many approaches to health assessment (both orthodox and complementary). Energetic changes in the body precede cellular changes. If an illness hasn’t progressed to the point where there are actual cellular or structural changes, conventional tests will usually reveal nothing. This is exactly why energetic testing is an important tool in both the investigation of symptoms before they become serious health issues and in the selection of the most suitable and effective program of treatment.
In years to come, as the demand for health assessment continues to rise, we will continue to observe the use of energetic testing as an effective preventative method in order to treat illness at its root and at the earliest possible stage.
