human body has an incredible ability to heal itself if given a chance.
In our world today, environmental pollutants, everyday stress, and
illnesses are constantly wearing down our bodies. There are many
avenues one can choose to enhance the body's functional health.
Health Care, P.C. provides the service of Meridian Stress
Assessment. MSA is a painless, non-invasive procedure that uses
Chinese acupuncture points to gather information about the functional
health of the body. The MSA can then be used to identify remedies
that will help the body restore itself to an optimal state of health.
What are Meridians? Meridians are
a network of energetic pathways which pass through the organs and
tissues of the body. Bioelectric energy, essential for human life,
flows through each meridian and the associated organs and tissues.
In Chinese medicine, this energy is called Qi (pronounced chi).
There are many acupoints along any meridian. Acupoints are specific
locations where the meridian intersects with the surface of the
skin. These acupoints can be used to access data about the meridian
and the functional status of its associated organs or tissues.
What is a Bio Energetic Evaluation? A
BEE test is an analysis of your body's functional health.
Each meridian is like an electrical circuit. Readings are taken
at specific acupoints on the hands and feet using a medical instrument
called an MSA-21, to determine the functional status of each meridian.
The readings will indicate whether the meridian and its associated
organ and tissues are balanced, stressed, or weakened.
Remedies are then found which will return stressed or weakened meridians
to a balanced state. This, in turn, will promote optimal functional
it going to hurt? No.
You will be holding a brass rod in one hand while the technician
uses a probe to take readings at specific locations on your hands
and feet. There is only the possible discomfort of having the probe
tip pressed against your skin. (return
will a Bio Energetic Evaluation benefit me?
A BEE test will indicate
the status of your functional health. It will tell which meridians
in your body are in balance, stressed or weakened.
The MSA-21 can then be used to select specific remedies that will
return your meridians to balance. The MSA-21 sends out an electromagnetic
signal to your body, which represents different remedies. Your body's
response to these signals is measured. In this way, your body is
able to "choose" which herb, homeopathic, or nutritional
supplement will aid in restoring balance to your meridians.(return
does this differ from regular medical treatment?
BEE testing and
balancing does not take the place of qualified medical diagnosis
and treatment. You are responsible for your own medical needs and
must determine which type of medical care is best for you.
Conventional medicine is exceptionally effective in health crisis
management and in diagnosing disease and in prescribing medication
that will diminish symptoms.
BEE testing is a way to address patient concerns that don't
show up in other tests. It is helpful for patients who want to improve
their general health as well as those with chronic problems that
lack a specific diagnosis or that have not responded to other treatment.
Will BEE testing be harmful to me in any way?
This equipment is classified by the FDA as a "non-significant
risk" device. The amount of current used in MSA testing is
in the range of millionths of an amp. This is so slight that you
will not even feel it.
MSA-21 technology can be compared to polygraph, EKG (electrocardiogram),
EEG (electro-encephalogram), EMG (electromyelogram), and MRI (magnetic
resonance imaging) and other technologies that measure electrical
response on the surface of the skin. Because this is a topical evaluation,
it is non-invasive and completely safe.
Will this procedure cure me of disease?
The MSA-21 system is not a diagnostic tool. The primary purpose
of this system is to evaluate the energy flow through the body.
It is not meant to make a medical diagnosis or replace medical intervention.
The purpose of using the MSA System is to narrow down the huge number
of choices (of products) that will support your body in functioning
at a healthier level. When your body functions at a healthier level,
you will be better able to cope with the challenge of disease. In
this way, cure is enhanced. (return
How often do I need to have BEE testing and balancing done?
Once-a-month visits are advisable in the beginning. Many people
achieve a more balanced meridian profile after three visits (although
this varies with the individual). Once an individual's meridians
are operating at an optimal level, follow-up appointments are recommended
every six months.
Can I still take my prescription medications while taking homeopathics
or herbal remedies?
We cannot advise you to stop taking a prescription medication. We
do however have the ability to test that medication and see whether
it weakens, balances, or stresses your system. By testing your medications,
it is possible to identify whether you are overdosing, or using
products that are not helping. You can take your conventional medication
20 minutes away from homeopathic remedies.(return
How does MSA Sensitivity Screening compare to conventional allergy
MSA-21 user states: "For one year's growing season,
we did both scratch allergy tests and MSA tests on all new allergy
patients. This amounted to several hundred patients. Our experience
was that the MSA gave us the most reliable information overall.
The scratch test was very good at determining pollen allergies.
With the MSA, we were able in 10-15 minutes to do a "sensitivity"
test on 120 items. The results from the MSA correlated the best
in giving the doctor and dietician useful data in setting up a treatment
protocol. The patients who experienced the MSA sensitivity test
and scratch test strongly preferred the MSA test experience as well
as the results."
