    • Scanning for frequencies of yeast, mold, bacteria, and viruses
  • A practitioner can feel the effects of a patient’s problem
  • There is a device that can detect the frequency, invert it, and then send it back into the body
  • Another device picks up electrical patterns, makes an algorithm to tell you what’s going on
    • Sends the frequencies back in to clean up the infection

-Other examinations…19:55

  • Different patterns of organs tell the story of the psychological arena of the patient
    • Information on how to cleanse the infection

  • Chinese medicine doctors believe it is the herb and the energy of the herb
  • The brain automatically knows which enzymes can be produced by ingesting the food you just smelled
  • The skin will tense up — called a galvanic skin response
