Meridian Stress Assessment

A New Breakthrough in Full Body Scans

What if there was a diagnostic tool that a doctor could use which may assist in detecting
the root causes of illness. Would you want to know about it? Would you want to try it?
Well, there is such a tool.


Does it diagnose disease? No, it does not. That’s for medical doctors. My approach in healthcare is   to find the causes of dysfunction in the body, and to look for those factors that may be causing the dysfunction. 


Meridian Stress Assessment is a personalized test and the results cannot be correlated with another person’s test results such as in western medicine. 


If I wanted to get an overall idea on the state of health from a medical perspective, I would order blood and urine tests to evaluate if the person may have diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.  


These types of tests can be correlated with others to determine which person is at higher risks for  these conditions. 


Meridian Stress Assessment is  a scientific advanced system that non-invasively gathers objective bioelectrical measurements or energy meridians, at points on the skin, associated with acupuncture points, targeting all major organs and organ systems within your body to formulate a comprehensive health status.  


A computerized report will show in detail your organs and functioning organ systems, determining if they are stressed, balanced, or weakened, and by how much. A suggested homeopathic / nutritional protocol and counseling will be given. 


This test would benefit anyone interested in balancing the functional energetic status of his or her own bodies. This applies to those who are unwell and looking to improve their health as well as those who would like to optimize their state of health and possibly prevent future negative health issues.

This evaluation is a state-of-the-art Meridian Stress Assessment that measures 58 different electrical circuits in the body via hand the foot points which are related to specific organ and system function.  


It is safe, non-invasive, and painless and uses the same technology as EKG’s and EEG’s used to measure heart and brain function, respectively. Results illustrate which systems in the body are healthy, inflamed or stressed or degenerated and what nutrition will be needed to correct it. 


In standard medical testing, blood, urine and saliva tests provide biological data to diagnose disease. 


In energetic medicine, the energy flows within the body's acupuncture meridians which can also be measured. Since everything vibrates at its own particular frequency, these frequencies can be analyzed for their existence and potential impact to help improve the overall health of a patient. 


Meridian Stress Assessment will help to identify stressors and/or weakness in the body that may be a result of bacteria, viruses, parasites, molds and fungus, pesticides, herbicides, chemicals, heavy metals toxicity, radiation, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, emotional imbalances, allergy testing, food sensitivities and environmental sensitivities. 


The 58 points are found on both hands and feet as shown in the images below.

The majority of these points are acupuncture points that relate to either the acupuncture meridians or organs systems that correlates with the acupuncture point.

The points are on both sides of the body, such as the lung point is on both the right and left hand.

It can be used on patients of all ages and does not require any special preparation.
All Bio-Meridian devices have FDA registration and CE approval.

Test results are color-coded in an easy-to-understand take-home report containing your practitioner's specific recommendations. With these reports, progress can be tracked easily, visit to visit.

Below is an example of an individual's first Bio-Meridian Assessment.
This sample chart showed a weakened uro-genital system and a stressed immune system.

3 different homeopathic remedies were recommended to support the functioning of the individual's kidneys and immune system. Notice the dramatic improvement in the second reading below after several weeks on the homeopathic remedies.

Ideally, all of our readings should be in the "green" zone.

So, what exactly is Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA)?

MSA simply uses an electronic device placed on acupuncture points to assess energy flow through the meridians of the body. MSA is called by various names such as EDS (Electro-dermal Screening), EAV (Electro-acupuncture according to Dr. Voll) and BIM (Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement)


Dr. Reinhold Voll, MD, Internist and acupuncturist in Germany in the 1940’s, noticed changes in electrical conductivity at each of the body’s acupuncture points. He discovered that higher or lower readings than “normal” at the particular acupuncture point indicates an imbalance of the energy flow. 

Higher readings indicate inflammation or irritation and lower readings indicate degeneration
or low energy flow. These imbalances can indicate the root causes of illnesses that are unexplainable by modern biochemistry-based medicine.

Based on Dr. Voll’s work, a new field of energy medicine was developed in Europe.

Imagine your body is a fine musical instrument like a violin. A violin has four strings which must be finely tuned before you can play beautiful music. Imagine your body is a violin with 50 strings which must be finely tuned before your body can function in harmony.

Checking your Acupuncture meridians to detect imbalances of your energy flow is the equivalent of checking the tuning of the violin strings.

In this way, Meridian Stress Assessment can be used to understand many unexplainable symptoms, and detect chemical toxins, food allergies and pathologies in organ and glandular systems.


MSA screening can be used to determine various remedies and medications specific to the individual that will balance the disturbed meridians.


Today, MSA devices are widely used in Europe and Asia. In the United States, MSA is still unknown to most medical practitioners and the public. I have been using Meridian Stress Assessment for 15 years in my practice.

I cannot imagine practicing medicine without an MSA device.

To me, not using an MSA device as a guiding tool would be like navigating an airplane
without radar equipment or playing a violin without ever tuning the instrument.


Acupuncture and Energy Medicine are evolving very rapidly. Meridian Stress Assessment is leading the way into the future of medicine. When we can integrate all the above knowledge of ancient wisdom with modern science, there will be a quantum jump in the understanding of the causes of many unexplainable, chronic illnesses from chronic fatigue to environmentally induced illness.


How do you actually test the remedy?

The technique of Remedy Testing is simple. A remedy is brought into the energetic field of the patient and the practitioner performs an MSA reading. The remedy has its own electro-magnetic/Energetic field. This is a unique energy field emanating from the remedy, and this field completely describes the remedy.

Every cell in the body has the capacity to distinguish the remedy by sensing into this electro-magnetic field. Therefore, on a subconscious level you know what is in the remedy, even if you cannot taste, smell or even see the remedy. This may be difficult to believe since we rely on and trust in our conscious senses. But we are not completely conscious of everything that occurs in our environment. And, just because we are not conscious of something, does not prove that it does not exist.


Remedy Testing can give us clues about the cause of a patient's condition.

One class or type of remedy therapy that is widely used in MSA Testing is Homeopathy.

Homeopathy is based on the principal that if something is harmful to a body in its raw form, then if you dilute the substance down to a minute concentration it can be beneficial in reversing the harmful effects of the original substance.


Often, the puzzle of what is really going on with a particular patient is locked deep within the cells. An example may be pesticide toxicity causing liver disorders. A standard blood test will generally reveal absolutely nothing about this condition. Taking chemical assays of the blood and urine may give a doctor some indications of pesticide toxicity, but it is very doubtful that the indications will point specifically to the liver.


With an MSA test, unfavorable readings may indicate a disturbance in the liver.

The practitioner may proceed in looking deeper into the situation by choosing to use Remedy Testing.


He may find that a homeopathic preparation of different pesticides may improve the readings and concludes that this patient, energetically, may have pesticide poisoning.


At this point it should be noted and understood that this scenario may indicate energetic pesticide toxicity in the liver, but even if the readings are improved greatly by the pesticide homeopathic, this is not a foolproof indicator.


It is very possible that the patient may respond to the homeopathic preparation even if he does not have pesticide toxicity!


Never forget that MSA is energetic testing. Homeopathic remedies are an energetic treatment.  This is not rock solid biochemistry or pathology testing.

This procedure dominantly emphasizes physics.

The point is to get the patient well.


MSA Remedy Testing gives us a useful indicator of remedy effectiveness. It can also be used to help unravel the question of what has occurred in the past, what is occurring presently and what is likely to develop in the future.


The National Institute of Health Concluded:

"In clinical practice, bio-energetic medicine (EDS) offers the possibilty of more economically
effective evaluations and non-invasive therapies for health problems, including those infractible (violating of the body) or recalcitrant (non responsive) to conventional treatments"
