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."  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:
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
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
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
