Determining the “right” foods

Health care professionals, as well as various diets, can offer advice as to which food should be good for our metabolic type. However, determining whether or not any particular food (or drink, supplement or medication) is actually “good” for our unique metabolism is often still subject to testing, for several reasons:

  • We may be “allergic” to any particular food (e.g., it may be assumed that peanut butter is good protein, but our body may not “like” peanut butter (e.g., it may not like its high phosphorus to calcium ratio, or some other peanut butter energy may not “fit” in out energy network)
  • We may be “allergic” to something else in the particular food (e.g., an additive, such as a preservative, coloring, etc.)
  • A particular type of food may not be “good” for us – even thought the body really needs that food (e.g., one type of vitamin C may be “good” for us, while another type may be “bad” for us)

As an example, let us say that aloe vera (a well known, oxygenating, vitamin E rich, generally assumed “good” food) is believed by a health care professional to be highly beneficial for a given patient. Subsequent testing, however (e.g., via Electo-Dermal Screening or kinesiology muscle testing) might well show that aloe vera, or a particular brand or type of it, may or may not be beneficial for the patient. Testing might show that an individual is “allergic” to aloe vera juice, but the same test might also show that aloe vera gel is “beneficial” for the same person. Furthermore, one brand of aloe vera gel may test as “good,” another may test as “bad” and another as “so-so.”

The bottom line is that the Chi within a given food, drink, supplement of medicine should be compatible with the energy in one’s body. Each person is unique and has a distinct metabolism and accompanying energy patterns. Most people probably consume food, drink, nutritional supplements and medications which are not bio-compatible based on their current metabolic condition. According to experts, millions of dollars are spent yearly on the “wrong” products – products that are mildly or totally incompatible with the chi and subtle energies of the body.

Energy Testing Using Electro-Dermal Screening

Energy within the body may be tested using a variety of machines utilizing an energy measurement method known as Electro-Dermal Screening (EDS). Those machines use principles based on the work, in the 1950s, of a German physician, Dr. Reinhold Voll.

Dr. Voll was fascinated by the use of acupuncture points in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). He invented a crude electrical device, which was able to measure energy in the acupuncture points. Using that information, he was able to stimulate points with abnormal energy with a small electric current, and restore balance to the Chinese meridians. Because of the closeness to acupuncture, this method of bio-assessment and healing became known as Electro-Acupuncture According to Voll (EAV). Machines similar to this became known as EAV machines.

Dr. Voll discovered, quite by accident, that his EAV machine could be used for food testing. When giving a presentation about his EAV machine to a group of homeopathic doctors, Dr. Voll chose a doctor in the audience and tested him. The EAV machine showed low energy in a prostate acupuncture point. Dr, Voll told him that he would balance the point with electrical stimulation after lunch. After lunch, Dr. Voll re-tested the doctor before he started. To his amazement, the acupuncture point was now balanced.

It was determined that the only “unusual” thing the homeopathic doctor had done at lunch was to pick up a bottle of a homeopathic remedy, made from echinacea, and had put it into his pocket. Testing with the bottle in his pocket showed normal energy at the prostate point, whereas testing with the bottle out of his pocket, and away from him and the machine, showed lower energy. Dr. Voll determined that putting any substance into the circuitry of the EAV machine will allow it to be tested as to whether or not it would be “good” or “bad” for the patient, should that food or substance be taken into the body. This was the beginning of food testing using a machine.

The Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide by Burton Goldberg, states:
“Dr. Voll later expanded his method not only to be able to learn what area of the body is being impacted, but to determine what the exact source of the problem is as well. He found that if a patient held sample homeopathic dilutions of known disease substances such as bacteria, viruses, or diseased tissue, when the patient came upon the one directly related to the cause of the problem, the EAV reading would return to normal. The reason for this is that homeopathic dilutions of a disease substance are actually remedies, following the homeopathic law of ‘like cures like.’ Therefore, the body is actually responding positively to what it perceives as ‘good medicine.’

In this way, EAV can be used to detect almost every known disease, chemical toxin, food allergy, and disregulation in organ and glandular systems. EAV screening can be used to test various remedies to determine which medication will correct the problem, and if there are likely to be any side effects.”  

Electo-Dermal Screening (EDS) is a highly advanced and scientific method of analyzing the energy in the body, based on the initial EAV work done by Dr. Voll in Germany in the 1950s. Whereas Dr. Voll needed to have test substances on hand, and in the circuit with the person being tested, modern Electo-Dermal Screening is able to circumvent that limitation with the use of modern computer technology. The energy patterns for tens of thousands of substances are stored in a computer database, so it is not always necessary to put a substance in the circuit by touching it, although that can still be done to test a particular product. Instead, the computer adds the substance electonically into the circuit with the patient. Some of the thousands of energy patterns stored are for microbes (viruses, bacteria, mold, parasites, etc.), toxins (chemicals, metals), as well as for many other substances. Electo-Dermal Screening measures energy without invading the bodyin any manner.Electo-Dermal Screening is able to screen for:

  • Abnormal energy levels in the meridians of the body associated with the organs of the body
  • Problems with the mouth (e.g., energy problems due to cavitations, fillings, and root canals, etc.)
  • Toxins (e.g., chemicals, food additives, pesticides, and metals such as aluminum and lead), microbes and various parasites that are toxic to the body
  • Mineral, vitamin, and hormone imbalances
  • Food intolerances and sensitivities by using energy profiles stored in the computer database or by touching a bottle of any substance with the hand

Energy Testing Using Kinesiology

Kinesiology, like Electro-Dermal Screening, may also be used for Food testing. Using Applied Kinesiology, it is also possible to measure normal and abnormal energy patterns within the human body, including identifying “good” and “bad” (allergic) foods and substances.

Kinesiology developed in the 1960s and relates to the use of muscle resistance testing to identify beneficial and detrimental energy. The type of energy tested can be internal (e.g., emotional, structural, chemical) or external (e.g., food, nutritional supplements, medications). Kinesiology may be used to identify imbalances in the body, to determine the priority of healing needs, and to evaluate potential therapeutic foods and products.

Food Testing using Muscle/Energy Testing

“Muscle testing” using kinesiology was made public in 1972. It is a method of energy testing foods, liquids, nutritional supplements. A trained kinesiologist is the best one to perform food and energy testing using applied kinesiology. Traditional food allergy testing is time consuming, often stretching over days, weeks or months. Methods involving kinesiology, as with Electro-Dermal Screening, can take an hour or two, and sometimes just minutes.

Using kinesiology, we make use of the fact that the energy from certain (“allergic”) foods and substances may cause our muscles to weaken. One method is placing the substance to be tested near the thymus gland (located in the center of the upper chest, beneath the top of the breastbone). The thymus is related the immune system and to energy transfer within the body. Energy from outside sources is “picked up” by the thymus and can cause muscles to weaken when the energy sensed by the thymus is not compatible with the body’s energy.

While there are many methods and variations of muscle testing, there are some methods that can be done by one or two non-kinesiologists. The following is one commonly used technique for testing a particular product, such as a nutritional supplement, that can reputedly be easily done with the help of a friend:

  • Stand with feet apart and extend one arm to the side, parallel to the ground, palm down, hand relaxed, fingers pointing to floor.
  • Have a friend push down on your arm with his or her hand while you gently resist. You should be able to resist to a certain extent and your hand will go down a little and “bounce back” a little. This step is done only to determine what is the “normal” amount of strength you have.
  • With one hand out to the side as in step 1, hold a bottle of a nutritional supplement, or other substance, in your opposite hand. Hold it against your upper chest, at the top of the rib cage, near the thymus gland.
  • Have your friend repeat step 2, pushing on your extended arm as you gently resist, and let him or her tell if your strength is the same as in step 2, or weaker. Different products will test “good” or “bad” or somewhere in between (so-so). Mediocre products are best avoided if a “good” one, i.e., a more bio-available one, can be found as a replacement.
