Homeopathy is a science of the treatment of disease by remedies, in which each remedy used is chosen because of its power of producing in large or poisonous quantities effects on a healthy individual, similar to the manifestations of the disease – or symptoms – which is desired to cure. This is the main principal of homeopathic medicine – the Law of Similars – ‘Similia Similibus Curantur’ – or like cures like.
The Law of Similars was discovered by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann believed that if a patient had an illness, giving a medicine that, if given to a healthy person, would produce similar symptoms of that same illness but to a slighter degree, could cure it. By a process he called ‘proving’, Hahnemann claimed to be able to compile a selection of appropriate remedies.
ElectroDermal Testing (EAV)
The basic concept for all of the ElectroDermal screening devices, was the invention of Dr. Reinhardt Voll, who in the 1940s, discovered that the electrical resistance of the human body is not homogenous and that meridians existed over the body which may be demonstrated as electrical fields. Furthermore, he showed that the skin is a semi-insulator to the outside environment. By the 1950s Voll had learned that the body had at least 1000 points on the skin which followed the 12 lines of the classical Chinese meridians. Each of these points, Voll called a Measurement Point (MP). Working with an engineer, Fritz Werner, Voll created an instrument to measure the skin resistance at each of the acupuncture points, patterned after a technique called Galvanic Skin Resistance (GSR). This was named Point Testing. In 1953, Voll had established the procedure that became known as Electro-Acupuncture according to Voll (EAV). This included two parts:
1. The first part was point testing in which a conductance measurement was taken in selected acupuncture points.
2. The second part was the establishment of a balance of the points and conductance by the use of feedback medicine. This became known as Medicine Testing.
The Codetron utilizes randomized stimulation and overcomes the problem of habituation found with Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulators (TENS) units. It was designed with specialists in physiology at the University of Toronto and is effective even with pain resulting from cancer. A number of modern technological changes are being applied to replace, or modify, the classical needle treatment. Among many modalities used today is the novel addition in Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) called CODETRON which delivers acupuncture-like stimulation in a random order. CODETRON was developed by a Canadian Scientist and had been evaluated in a clinical trial in a multidisciplinary pain clinic on patients who came for acupuncture therapy over a period of two years. Indications, effectiveness and experiences with this form of treatment are presented. In addition, results obtained from a six week double-blind randomized placebo controlled pilot trial of osteoarthritis of the hip/knee with CODETRON which was conducted later. The results were highly suggestive of the beneficial effect of this nonhabituating mode of therapy and confirmed our initial uncontrolled trial results. Acupuncture-like stimulation with CODETRON for rehabilitation of patients with chronic pain syndrome and osteoarthritis.
Bio Resonance Therapy
Bioresonance Therapy utilizes ideas of eastern vitality drug, homeopathy and quantum material science to help the body’s self-administrative framework. It helps the body by boosting the mending flags that go between the safe framework and all phones in the body, while stifling the signs emitted by allergens and different stressors. Bioresonance therapy is also called electrodermal testing, bio-physical information therapy, BIT, bio-energetic therapy, energy medicine and vibrational medicine. Whatever the name, the method is based on the notion that electromagnetic oscillations emitted by diseased organs and cancer cells are different from those emitted by healthy cells.
