Dario Läuppi Terminology in its context

Periodic table
What the periodic table of the elements has in common with the periodic table of EAV is that both provide a basis for understanding the original chaos of the chemical and physiological/pathophysiological reactions, respectively. Both offer also explanations of the dynamism of multivariable processes as well as generalist and specialist approaches which make possible to put them into practice and into therapy, respectively.

Physiology and physiological dynamics
"In the body, hundreds or thousands of processes are automatically regulated. Diverse activities are linked together to maintain each one." [1] These dynamic processes occur normally unhindered (= physiologically) in the organism or are hindered (= pathophysiological/pathological). In this context, in the Chinese medicine has already been developed a functional concept, traditionally named life force (氣, qi, ch'i), with energy paths (= meridians) and biologic active points (= acupuncture points), which are related to the functions/dysfunctions of the organs. Particularly the interfaces physiology - pathophysiology - pathology are significantly decisive for a (partial) functional reversibility of diseases (manifest and latent dysfunctions). Reinhold Voll has said to himself that it should be possible to measure this “life force” and -  based on the results – regulate it, and so he developed a method:

Electro-acupuncture according to Voll (EAV)
Non-invasive diagnostic and therapy monitoring method through measurements on acupuncture points (without needlestick!) for evaluating the energetic correlations of a living individual.

EAV diagnostics in context
The EAV examination reflects systemic (patho)physiologic conditions and the general wellbeing.” (quotation from the abstract in English of the published paper of 張廷彰 – discourse contextualizing parentheses added). The electroacupuncture diagnosis is based on the bioelectrical characteristics of acupuncture points discovered by R. Voll according to which the skin resistance reacts differently during measurements of professional approach with appropriated devices, it’s practically a reaction detection test for a specific non-invasive cutaneous stimulus on acupoints. The measuring values deviating from the physiological norm make it possible within a short period of time to differentiate between (partial or total) inflammatory and allergic caused processes respectively (beginning or advanced) degenerative changes in organs (like sclerosis, arthrosis, cirrhosis …) or insufficiency disorders (mild, moderate or serious pathophysiological processes) including an evaluation of the biological reactivity, these processes display significant correlations to the kind and the seriousness of the dysfunctions.Impairment of the regenerative capacity can be localized in the involved metabolisms and organs. Symptoms (= tip of the iceberg) can also be detected energetically in the sublinical stage – when laboratory and image findings are still clinically silent – and can still be good treated in a non-invasive and etiological way. An early identification can certainly be an essential support.
   Clinical findings include cataloged medical terms. The physical condition of each patient with the same pathology is always different, in other words, the clinical picture is never entirely identical, it is possible to improve the autoregulatory capacity of the body and immunodeficiency of chronic and recurrent disorders. Consequently, clinical findings are obviously always integrated in individualized treatments with EAV monitoring.
   This definition of diagnosis applies solely to the analysis of diagnostic information obtained during screenings of the entire organism executed by skillful hands of electroacupunctural diagnosticians. Measuring on as many points as possible facilitate a higher differentiation of diagnosis and therefore more efficient therapies. An overall evaluation can prevent from misdiagnosis. EAV diagnostics are repeatedly verified and integrated in the conventional medicine. See also scientific papers
   The diagnostic data serve as the basis for therapies with medication tested according to the electroacupunctural methodology

Green sustainable medicine
A sustainable medicine has as little negative impact as possible on the patient and on the environment. The ecological footprint is smaller when the treatment is performed with medicinal plants:

Oldest known form of therapy with medicinal plants More

  • In particular directed phytotherapy: Precise application of therapeutically effective medicinal plant (preparations) for a certain patient in his current condition in accordance with an innovative methodology, which combines herbalism and the above mentioned acupunctural measuring technique More

Dilutions of substances for differentiation of the EAV or a treatment of “the same with the same”, among other things, for detoxification or desensitization More

Chinese electro-acupuncture
Electric stimulation of the acupuncture needles, among other things, for analgesia

Dilutions of substances for the therapeutic method «the similar is treated by the similar», is based on the observations of S. Hahnemann

Medicine testing and verification of the medication

or: different methods to investigate the efficiency of remedies
  • Homeopathic drug proving (since the beginning of the 19th century) - Medication according the symptomatology:
    Apparently healthy test persons ingest homeopathic substances, the caused effects are recorded in remedy organizers and finders, and the remedies are subsequently administered to patients with identical symptoms and complaints.
    In practice, the classical homeopaths choose the remedies by repertorization of the symptoms and the modern homeopaths choose them energetically by EAV.
  • Practical medication selection through the EAV (since the middle of the 20th century, also called: remedy testing, resonance test, vegetative resonant test, drug test, medicine testing, medication test, medication testing, tolerance test, medication response test, biocompatibility test) - Medication after differentiated measuring:
    After a checkup with diverging values, remedies and substances are put into the measuring circuit for determining the possible effects on the health of the patient. “This technique is safe, non-invasive, time and cost saving. It can avoid the direct contact between the patient and the substance being tested, thus eliminating the risk of adverse reactions during the test.” (slightly modified quotation, inspired by Montenegro L. et al. 2006).

    If the remedies and substances
  1. normalize as many diverging values as possible without creating new diverging values on other selected measuring points (= potential side effects), it is possible to prescribe the most effective remedies according to the rules of the art,
  2. deteriorate the values on (anamnestic known) potentially affected measuring points, it makes it easier to avoid risks, helps to detect intolerances & allergies and enables conclusions about the biocompatibility.
    With these results one can personalize the treatments and make conclusions about the individual efficacy and tolerability of the remedies for children, adolescents, adults and seniors before administering them. These can be phytotherapeutic, isopathic, homeopathic and synthetic medicines or other substances.
    The medicament testing of EAV has been discovered by a fortunate coincidence and has become part of best practices: every single patient can rely on the results obtained with samples within the scope of a routine check-up.
    After one of the biggest drug scandals with the synthetic substance Thalidomide were established restrictive approval criteria for industrially produced drugs. After the revelation of this drug embryopathy, the mandatory steps to be followed were: preclinical phase (animal toxicity testing, among other things); clinical trials in 4 phases (investigations of tolerability in human beings, therapeutic effectiveness in adult patients, proof of efficacy, comparison to control groups with/without other treatment = blind trial). When all steps of the procedure have been performed, the pharmaceutical manufacturer submits an application for approval, based on statistical analysis, to the medicine regulatory authority of a country or an economic area, which can authorize the drug exclusively for the indications listed on the package insert and for which a physician's prescription may be required.
     These strict rules of procedure were recently eased: In the accelerated approval process for drugs, the improvement of some laboratory values (markers) became the main criterion for a marketing authorization. The proof of efficacy for the regular approval may be presented years later. This is also afflicted with problems from the point of view of ethics and health law, as shown among others by professor and author Holly Fernandez Lynch.
    One only finds out retrospectively – after the administration of medicine – which patient belongs to the tolerance or intolerance group.
