What is an Electro Acupuncture Device (EAV)?

Electro Acupuncture is a 50 year old technology solution that bridges the health of tomorrow with the consciousness of today.

Pioneered by one of the most acclaimed acupuncturist and physicians of his time Dr. Reinhold Voll In the early 1900s, EAV or Electro Acupuncture by Voll is a system of analysis that goes far beyond the realm of simple yes or no answers. This revolutionary technology and cutting edge research is considered by many to be the future of complimentary healing. 

(EAV) or Electro Acupuncture by Voll, and (EDS) Electro Dermal Screening are one and the same tool.

The EAV machine pictured above and utilised within the clinic was created by the VeraDyne Corporation of the USA.

The painless screening procedure will investigate for the “energetic signature” of certain viruses, mold, bacteria and fungi which we can identify and then “attenuate” or energetically single them out.

After identifying what is blocking the healing that your body wants, the practitioner will either screen the remedies (vitamin, mineral, homeopathic, pharmaceutical or neutraceutical) which you may be already taking or screen the array of practitioner remedies, to identify the ones that balance out those stress points of concern to bring your body back into its natural homeostasis state. 

How does electro acupuncture screening work?

Electro acupuncture by Vol, (EAV) is a form of computerised information gathering which is based on Quantum physics. A blunt, non-invasive electric probe will be placed at specific acupuncture points on your hands, head or feet as shown below in the images. These specific reference points correspond to acupuncture points at the beginning or end of the energy meridians running through your body. These points correspond to the different organ systems of the body.  Minute electrical discharges from these points serve as information signals about the condition of the body’s organs and systems…. EAV uses a scale of  0 to 100, with a 45-55 being “normal”, 56-100 “Inflammed” and 44-0 as “Devitalised” The key idea is that energy transfers its signal through an acupuncture meridian to the nervous system, with the end result being a cellular pathology.  EDS is a ‘data acquisition process’….”  (Alternative Medicine, issue 27, January 1999, p. 59)

What can it detect?

Pathogen Energetic Signatures

In addition Electro Acupuncture by Vol (EAV) looks for the “Energetic Signatures” of information left behind from Viruses, Bacteria, Mold, Or Fungi (Lymes,Ebola,Staphyloccocus…etc). In Physics we know that energy is neither created nor destroyed but trans-located into another form of information. With Dermal Screening we look to pick up the information left behind and then have it “energetically tagged” into a remedy of choice to inform the body of its presence so that your body’s own defense mechanisms may take care of the problem.

Sensitivity testing (Allergen Energetic Signatures)

The non invasiveness of EAV has made it a reliable and most comfortable tool for people looking to test allergies. We know that the Skin Sensitivity tests may not be the most comfortable as the skin needs to be punctured especially when we are talking about children. EAV Screening offers a non invasive and accurate comprehensive sensitivity screening which will go far beyond the yes or no approach to modern allergy testing. What we mean by this, is that certain allergens do not cause an extreme reaction as seen with Anaphylaxis (extreme allergy reaction which may be life threatening when it closes airways) but minor sensitivities may cause smaller but bothersome symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, runny nose, fatigue, bloating and brain fog. These can be allergic reactions not looked for by modern medicine but EAV screening offers comprehensive examination into these very important areas of sensitivity.

What's the link with our Teeth?

The renowned German Physician Dr. Rheinholt Voll, based on more than 40 years experience of research and observation estimated that nearly 80% of all illness is related entirely or partially to problems in the mouth. Another renowned physican Dr. Max Gerson and daughter Charlotte In his book “The Gerson Therapy for Cancer and other Diseases” Speaks out about amalgums and mercury in fillings of teeth and how they had not seen anyone survive stage 4 cancer that had not removed what they called toxic fillers and poisons. The EAV Screening test will provide you with valuable information as to whether certain dental work has had an impact on health problems one may be facing and working hand in hand with biological dentists that are acquainted with this approach be able to overcome these health issues.

Supplement & Homeopathic Testing

By placing different supplements or homeopathic items on the EAV testing tray, the practitioner can asses which items will better serve to balance the particular acupuncture point or organ meridian line that is being shown on the screen to be unbalanced.  Each item assessed will appear and climb immediately on the screen. This serves to show how well one supplement may work opposed to another, which will allow the client to return to homeostasis much faster!

The avatar Eav system using a form of highly sophisticated muscle testing (applied Kinesiology) can test to see what supplement program, herb or vitamin mineral complex is right for you. This will save you a tremendous amount of money by ensuring you only purchase the brand and take the exact quantity of supplements that support your health.  This was observed by the inventor of the technology Dr. Voll when a patient came into his client and accidentally brought their medications in their pocket. Dr. Voll noticed the reading on the particular point that he would be testing would change. This served as the initial indicator of a good protocol for future treatment.

How Accurate are the results?

Research published in the “Journal of Naturopathic Medicine” concluded that ‘electrical conductance data reviewed correspond with histological reports.  In clinical practice, EAV instruments are useful tools to work alongside standard blood tests, radiographic images and case histories.   The integration of reliable and valid bioelectric medical instruments into the clinical setting augment the ability to rapidly evaluate tissues…. Bioelectric medicine offers clinicians new quantitative methods for evaluations subtle electromagnetic changes in humans.” 

The foundation of this technology is the work of Reinhold Voll, M.D. almost 50 years ago.  Voll’s work is often referred to as electroacupuncture according to Voll (EAV).  Although relatively new to Western Medicine this testing system is understood, accepted and widely used in many other countries including Germany, France and England.  Today’s testing equipment is the end product of a 30-year evolution of Dr. Voll’s work that utilized a modern computer program, a sensitive ohm meter and a signal generator.

An Overview of EAV by Robert Eanes, Creator of The Avatar EAV System

Every EAV (electro-acupuncture according to Voll) instrument is an OHM meter, i.e. it measures one thing – electrical impedance.

Back in the late 1940’s, Dr. Reinholt Voll, MD, began an investigation of the effects of electricity on the human physiology. In his studies, Dr. Voll used a technique known as Impedance or OHM metering. In simple terms, some materials are very electrically conductive, for example metals like steel and copper – electricity flows very easily through metals and therefore there is no substantial resistance on the electricity flowing through the metal.

Other materials are not conductive, for example wood or rubber, and since these materials are not conductive, their resistance to elecgtrical current is very high. An OHM meter measures electrical resistance (impedance), and it is also capable of measuring conductance since the inverse of resistance (1/resistivity approximately), is conductance.
Dr. Voll found that if he tested the electrical conductance on any general area of the human body, there was a fairly high level of electrical resistance.

This is a curious point since we know that the body has a large volume of electrically conductive fluids within it. But, the skin is very resistant, by its nature to electrical current. Dr. Voll also found that at certain specific locations on the anatomy, the electrical flow is much more conductive, and these points generally correspond to the Eastern Medical Acupuncture points. Therefore, you can use an impedance or OHM meter to test the acupuncture points. This is somewhat simplistic, but it does describe the basic process of EAV.

EAV Testing indirectly measure the “Energetic System” of the body

It does not measure the physiology, the biochemistry or the pathology components of the human body. However, the “Energetic System” is related to these components, from the standpoint of physics, not chemistry.
Acupuncture is a science that works with the “Energetic” system of the body. The human body is biochemical (physical). It has an electrical component and also an energetic aspect as well. The acupuncture meridians are a communication and energetic flow network.

“Energetic”, in this sense, is a somewhat elusive term. Yes, the meridians do have some form of energy, but it is not electricity. There is a controversy about the validity of Acupuncture because scientists cannot measure the energetic system of the body directly, i.e. they cannot prove that acupuncture meridians exist using conventional measurements. It is important that you keep this fact in mind.

EAV does not directly measure the acupuncture/energetic system of the body directly. This is not scientifically possible at this time. But, there is a bio-physiological phenomenon that occurs when you run electricity through the acupuncture points. The electrical flow (conductance) gives us an indication of the energetic health status of the meridian that we are testing. For example, if you are testing the Liver Meridian with an EAV instrument, the meter will give an indication of the Liver Meridian’s energetic status. Remember, energetic is not electrical, but we can use electricity to indirectly measure the energetic system.

The “Universal Baseline” makes EAV a viable testing modality

The EAV/OHM 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, there is a Universal Baseline. Regardless of who is tested, no matter what their age, weight, sex, nationality or race, a reading of 50 with no change over time (no indicator drop), is an indication of an energetically healthy meridian. Readings that are significantly above 50 (65 plus) indicate inflammation, and this is due to the fact that when tissue becomes inflamed, the concentration of body fluids increases and therefore the conductance will increase accordingly. This inflammation occurs in the tissue and also in the proximity of the related acupuncture point as well. When a reading is significantly lower than 50 (below 30), then it is believed that this meridian is low energy or possibly degenerative.

When a reading steadily drops in value from the high point down, this is known as an Indicator Drop (ID), and it can point to a weakness or disturbance in the meridian.

EAV is a valid health screening modality because the test readings are reproductible

If you take a patient and then have three very well trained EAV practitioners test that same patient (points only and not different remedies), one practitioner following the other, you will get essentially the same test results. There will be slight differences, but the overall test will be the same. The operative factor here is ‘well trained’. There is a specific technique to EAV Testing and it can be learned. The key is learning how to get a correct reading on a particular point. The difficulty is in accurately testing the actual point and not something else in the proximity of the point!

The acupuncture points lie close to the bone in the fascia between the bone and the overlying tissue. To test a meridian point you have to get the Point Probe electrode (the instrument used to take a conductance reading), close to the bone. The problem is that the point has a specific location and the skin covers that location. It is very easy to disturb the skin when taking a reading and this causes the readings to elevate dramatically. It is also difficult to find the point location. There is no road-guide map to show the exact point placement. The process of learning EAV involves some basic techniques as well as getting a sense of feel. The only way that a practitioner can determine the proper placement of the Point Probe and the proper testing pressure is by good training, dedicated practice and ultimately, feel. Learning EAV is similar to learning to play a musical instrument. Anyone can tap a key and play a note on the piano. Just as anyone can put a Point Probe on the skin of a client and get a reading. But, it takes practice to learn how to play the notes of a song, and it takes a sense of feel to turn those notes into something that is musical. Without the feeling, the notes sound mechanical.

EAV requires both art and science
Every EAV device is a technical instrument, but without the intuitive feeling of the practitioner it is useless for testing acupuncture points. Notably, this dissuades the interest of many practitioners. But this sensitivity and feeling is a fundamental component of medicine.

You can put a scalpel in the hand of any medical school student and tell him where to cut, how deep and the length of the incision. But the difference that qualifies a top surgeon is in part due to his sense of how to cut which can only come from the experience and his intuitive sense of surgical cutting. Good acupuncturists feel where to place the needles.

Good chiropractors feel where and how to adjust. A good psychotherapist must go beyond the words his patient is saying and intuit into what is being conveyed.

EAV is a valuable test because it gives us a powerful, energetic insight into the physiology, biochemistry and pathology of an individual.

Keep in mind that EAV is indirectly testing the Energetic System, not the physiology, biochemistry or pathology of the body. Making any inference about the health of the body through EAV must be kept in the domain of energetically related indications. EAV status is closely related to all of these other factors and it can be an indicator or qualitative screening tool, but it is not testing the actual physiology, nor the biochemistry or pathology.
