Applied Kinesiology (AK)
Applied Kinesiology (AK), developed by Dr. George Goodheart in 1964, uses bioenergetic feedback through testing the strength of various muscles in the body. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care.
AK allows the skilled health practitioner to evaluate functional illness, which typically precedes disease. This highly individualized, in-depth sytem of analysis, allows the doctor to assess various aspects of a patient's state of health by evaluating and treating postural and muscular imbalances, neurovascular and neurolymphatic points, subluxation, cranial-sacral movement, acupuncture meridians and nutritional status. This is a highly effective treatment system which focuses on whole body care. AK enables health investigation without intrusion. AK gives insight into the underlying causes and solutions to many functional health problems.
One of the biggest benefits of AK is it gives us a tool for discernment!
Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique (A/SERT)
What is A/SERT? A/SERT (Allergy / Sensitivity Elimination and Reprogramming Technique) is a revolutionary treatment system based on the principles of Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Applied Kinesiology (Muscle Response Testing). This technique was developed by Dr. John Brimhall, and is a modification of NAET (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Technique) developed by Dr. Devi Nambudripad. This treatment, in conjunction with the 10-Step Protocol, can bring about dramatic improvement -at times even total elimination- for all types of allergies. It is simple, non-invasive and extremely effective. It is currently practiced by hundreds of health practitioners, including MD's, nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, dentists, and, to some extent, allergy sufferers themselves.
How does A/SERT work? A/SERT is based on the recognition that all things, animate and inanimate, in our universe have their own specific electromagnetic fields due to their atomic and molecular makeup, and that these fields affect each other. This is true for our bodies, rocks, pollen, mold, peanut butter, a flower, water, in short, everything. This electromagnetic energy is associated with meridians (energy pathways) in acupuncture, chi in Chinese Medicine, and can be demonstrated with Kirlian photography. Nuclear physicists can determine the type of atom by its electromagnetic frequency. According to Dr. Devi Nambudripad, this is what happens: Your energy system and brain interpret a particular substance (a diamond ring, a whole wheat bagel, a peanut, hot water, sun light) as potentially harmful to your body, and your body reacts. For other people this same item is totally harmless. Your energy pathways freeze up as a way of defending the body against this unsuitable substance. This in turn blocks your energy meridians and, if this condition continues, the overall functioning of your body suffers.
A/SERT Diagnostics- Our fingertips are very sensitive to the electromagnetic energy of substances with which we come into contact. By placing a sample of a suspected allergen into a person's hand, and using Applied Kinesiology muscle testing, the A/SERT practitioner can determine whether or not a person reacts "weak" or "strong" to the substance, i.e., whether this substance causes an energy blockage in the patient's body. Such blockages can cause a wide variety of symptoms, from sneezing and coughing to chronic diseases such as asthma.
A/SERT Desensitization- The A/SERT practitioner stimulates key points along the patient's spine while the patient is holding the allergen. The doctor stimulates certain meridian points, specific organs and lobes of the brain with a Low Level Laser. A chemical change takes place in the autonomic nervous system, neutralizing any allergic reaction to the substance. A/SERT reprograms the brain and the nervous system, and eliminates your body's conditioned response to the 'allergen'. Environmental medicine has been dealing with hidden allergies for several decades. You try to avoid the allergenic substance in your life, you go on a rotation diet, and maybe you can manage. But with A/SERT you can continue to have contact with the very substance that made you sick.
Cold Laser Therapy
Where is this being used?
The Erchonia cold laser device has gained recent FDA approval for the non-surgical treatment of neck and shoulder complaints and is being used widely in the NFL and by the USPS tour de France team chiropractor. The beneficial effects of the Erchonia laser are currently being researched by leading plastic surgeons for use in liposuction proceedures.
How does it work?
When the body has an injury the cells are damaged and fail to function within normal parameters. Low level lasers penetrate deeply into the skin and work by restoring this abnormal cellular function. Physiologic effects include improved metabolism, circulation and tissue healing.
Laser therapy may be useful to you if you have any of the following:
- frozen shoulder
- post-operative wounds
- scar tissue
- autoimmune diseases
- chronic or acute pain
- wound healing
- disc herniations
- minor nerve damage
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- heavy metal detoxification
For more information on this therapy go to www.erchonia.com.
EB 305 - Energy Balancer
The EB 305 was designed and developed to restore the body's energy and balance while facilitating and aiding in its natural detoxification process. This device has been proven in clinical trials to balance and restore the body's Ph and electromagnetic energy.
How does it work?
The EB uses direct current similar to that of the human body to create an ionic field. The patient places their feet in the bioenergetic water to receive the flow of ions which increases cellular function. Studies have shown that more cellular ATP is produced during treatment which enhances the cells to work and detoxify at a higher rate.
You may benefit from the EB 305 if you suffer from:
- chronic pain
- multiple chemical sensitivities
- autoimmune diseases

Body Scan 2010
The Body Scan is an FDA registered Bio-Feedback and stress testing device that measures your physiological response to outside stimuli. While the Body Scan cannot be used as a diagnostice test, it is a valuable tool for assessing stress in the body's energy system. By using the Galvanic Skin Response system, information about your body is obtained painlessly and without risk. Additionally, the Body Scan helps the doctor develop a unique "Stress Map" for each patient.
- Assesses the stress affecting your body and health

EARLY DETECTION IS KEY...THERMOGRAPHY!
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging 'DITI' or 'Thermography'
What is Thermography?
Thermography is a non invasive test of physiology. It detects the subtle physiologic changes that accompany breast pathology, whether it is cancer, fibrocystic disease, an infection or a vascular diseae. It is a valuable procedure for alerting your doctor to changes that can indicate early stage breast disease.
Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging is a unique technology that takes a picture and creates a map of the infrared patterns of the body. It is different than other screening tools because it helps us to see function (physiology). MRI and X-ray detect anatomical changes so will miss such things as active inflammation or angiogenesis(increased blood supply as found in cancer) . It was approved by the FDA for breast cancer screening in 1982. It can detect early danger signs in the body years before other tools. It has been shown to be effective in finding early signs of breast cancer up to 8 years before the mammogram.
- Inflammatory Phenomena- This could include early detection of cardiovascular disease, arthritis, Fybromyalgia or trauma such as strains, sprains or chronic pain.
- Neovascular Phenomena - Cancer is fed by the bodies own blood supply. This development of early vascularity is detected well before anatomical changes occur that will be detected with other screening tools.
- Neurological Phenomena - Chronic regional pain syndrome, nerve irritation can cause reffered pain in other areas. Circulatory deficits are easily seen in thermographic images.
A full body screening covers all regions of the body with no less than 28 images. A region of intest can be used fo focalized screening such as breast screening, thyroid, etc.
Is It a Proven Technology?
Thermography has been comprehensively researched for over 30 years. While it is not a replacement for Mammography, it may have many valuable assets including: earlier detection of neovascular(blood supply) patterns, adjunct to inconclusive mammograms, improved detection for women with dense breasts or implants or a reasonable alternative for women who refuse mammogram. Below is a sample of the over 800 studies in the index-medicus. They represent some of the important findings and value of thermography.
- In 1982, the FDA approved breast thermography as an adjunct diagnostic breast cancer screening procedure
- Of the extensive research conducted since the late 1950's, well over 300,000 women have been included as study participants
- The size of the studies are very large: 10k, 37k, 60k, 85k
- Some studies have followed participants up to 12 years
- Strict standardized interpretation protocols have been established for 15 years to remedy problems with early research.
- Breast thermography has an average sensitivity and specificity of 90%
- An abnormal thermogram is 10 times more significant as a future risk indicator for breast cancer than a first order family history
- A persistent abnormal thermogram carries with it a 22x higher risk of future breast cancer
- Extensive clinical trials have shown that breast thermography significantly augments the long term survival rates of its recipients by as much as 61%. When used as a multimodal approach (clinical exam +mammography+thermography), 95% of early stage cancers will be detected.
Why Have I Not Heard About This?
Like many alternative diagnostic tools or treatments, the facts are not always disclosed. Thermography was summarily dropped from breast screening in the 1980's after only 1 year of use. The reason was sited as being it detected too many false positives and therefore was not specific enough. This is ironic since the mammogram has a 65% false positive rate and recent studies have shown that it is a poor predictive tool. 90% of MD's know nothing of the technology and so are critical of that which they don't know. The other 10% seem to quote research from 22 years ago from a few small studies and ignore the plethora of positive research.
Is it accurate?
Yes, as a routine screening tool, it has been shown to be 97% effective at detecting benign vs malignant breast abnormalities. Another study tracked 1537 women with abnormal thermograms for 12 years. They had normal mammograms and physical exams. Within 5 years, 40% of the women developed malignancies. The researchers commented ""an abnormal thermogram is the single most important marker of high risk for the future development of breast cancer" These results have been repeated over and over again for nearly 30 years.
Is It Safe?
While a variety of studies have called into question the safety of cumulative exposures to radiation, this is not the case with Thermography. Thermography emits nothing, it only takes an image. Nothing touches you and it is quick and painless. This all makes Thermography great for frequent screening with no chance of danger.
Who Reads the Images?
The images are sent via secured server to EMI which a professional group of physicians who are trained in the protocols of reading Thermal images. A very formal interpretation is made and sent to us where we will review the results and make suggestions or referrals if necessary. You are given a copy of the report and frequently we send copies of the reports to physicians for their records.
What If I get Abnormal Results? What Do I Do?
Thermography is not diagnostic but gives early risk factors. This is great news because an abnormal result from a thermogram often buys time so that natural interventions such as herbs, supplements and lifestyle changes can influence the outcome. At the least, the condition can be closely monitored safely until conventional interventions need to be applied. It is important to recognize that early detection is the key to a good outcome. We will make recommendations or referrals as necessary.
