It is an device measuring electrical conductance (the inverse of resistance) at a specific point of a human body. It measures the body’s “energetic system,” from the standpoint of physics. It does not measure its biochemistry or pathology from the standpoint of chemistry.
The tested client holds a Ground (negative) Electrode in one hand and the therapist tests a selected body point with a Probe (positive electrode) of the machine. The client is a part of the electric circuit, whose conductance is measured by the EAV machine. Our Aucomb and Salvia measuring devices are connected to a computer via proprietary software to provide immediate test readings.
A German scientist and a medical doctor Reinholt Voll investigated effects of electricity on the human body in 1950 and found general high level of electrical resistance, except in specific locations of anatomy. He noted that these points generally corresponded to the acupuncture points used in by Traditional Chinese Medicine. He therefore called the method the Electro-Acupuncture by Voll, or EAV.
Dr Voll further found that his Universal Baseline reading for humans was 50, indicating a body in balance. Readings significantly above that level indicated inflammation. As a body tissue becomes inflamed, the concentration of body fluids increases. As fluids have lesser resistivity, the measured conductance rises. Conversely, readings significantly lower that the Baseline, indicate a higher resistivity and therefore low energy at a specific body point. This could be due to a loss of hydration, or hardening of organs.
The EAV method was later enhanced by Remedy Testing. It was found that adding different remedies to the measured electric circuit altered its readings. These specific remedies were placed on the EAV Machine, not the tested patient.When the indicator on the device approached the Baseline the specific remedy was described as being “Bio-compatible”. Biocompatibility meant that the remedy produced favourable response. Testing of many thousands potential remedies was extremely time consuming.
The latest enhancement was to link the conductance-measuring device via appropriate software to a computer, to speed up the testing process and to provide immediate results. Joalis has developed and uses its proprietary software. As a result the testing process for toxins and remedy testing can be completed within a single visit.
