Bio Energetic Testing Explanation
Dr. Reinhard Voll, MD
In the late 1940’s, Dr. Reinhard Voll, a German medical doctor and engineer began researching and proving an innovative testing method now known as EAV (Electroacupuncture according to Voll)
This method was documented and proven, in over a decade of hospital studies, in Germany and today is widely used throughout Europe by over 25,000 medical practitioners. In the United States, it is currently growing in acceptance particularly by medical practitioners who specialize in “Alternative, Holistic and Biological Medicine” techniques and disciplines.
EVA offers a quick, non-invasive screening method for determining health imbalances
It is an “Energetic” assessment of the individual. And while all the organs, glands and complex systems in the body are physical and chemical in nature, there is also an unseen component to them and this is called the Energetic System.
This Energetic System is not physical nor chemical, it is pure energy
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, EDS, Electro-Dermal Screening or MSA, Meridian Stress Assessment).
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. 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.
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. 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 acupuncturist uses needles that are placed at specific “Points” to stimulate the flow of energy to specific organs and glands.
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 gland, or to the various functional regions found within an organ. All totalled, 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.
Science has just recently made successful displays of the existence of the Energetic System through the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (NMRI) Systems. 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. 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. 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. We use electrical current to measure the Meridians. We have to keep in mind that this is an indirect measurement of the Energetic System. 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 device to measure electricity is the first step. The next question is; How do we go from electrical conductance measurement to a useful assessment of the Energetic System?
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.
Remedy Testing expands the range of capability in EAV Testing. Readings above 75 exhibit “Inflammation” of a Meridian, 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.
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.
The 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 .In his studies, Dr. Voll discovered “Remedy Testing”. He found that different remedies might affect the readings on different Meridians.
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, usually aluminum, 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 “Biocompatible”. Biocompatible means; the remedy produces a favorable or “Positive Response” energetically.
EAV testing is a energetic testing method that can be useful to gain understanding of energy disruptions in the meridians. EAV is not a replacement for medical testing and is never used for diagnosis of a medical condition.
