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.
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.
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.
Using current technology we can indirectly measure the Energetic System.
An MSA 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.
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 MSA device is a type of Electrical Conductivity Meter.
When a practitioner tests the Liver Meridian with an MSA 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 MSA 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?
Electricity has been used to treat medical conditions for many years. Acupuncture points have distinct electrical properties when compared to surrounding tissue.
The bioelectrical impedance of acupoints seems to vary between healthy and diseased states.
Electroacupuncture according to Voll is a methodology that uses a calibrated ohmmeter to measure bioelectric impedance on certain acupuncture points located on the hands and feet in response to changes in the physiological functions of organs and structures of the body.
This process also evaluates bioelectric impedance of acupuncture points when substances, such as medicines, herbs, supplements, and homeopathic remedies are placed in the same electrical circuit with the patient.
