Losing it All 5/5 (35)

This week I’m writing from a foreign country. Or at least it feels that way. I’m writing from a foreign computer, which is like a whole different world. I feel completely displaced, somewhat ignorant, and definitely alien. I probably deserve this exile, but I’m glad to know it’s only temporary. You see, I’ve written and spoken literally for years about the need for secure backup of computer records. I’ve continually offered our customers pearls of... Read more

A Sense of Proportion 5/5 (37)

Question: What’s the difference between the two graphs below? The answer may be a little more complicated than it first appears.

Today’s blog entry is really more of a mini-survey. Let me explain. As professionals, we all tend to gauge our equipment investments based on the potential return on those investment.

Can I make more money if I do, or learn, or purchase the... Read more

The AcuGraph PIE Score: how do you explain it? 4.97/5 (37)

First of all, thanks to all of you who responded and commented on my last post. I really appreciate your input and the lively conversation. This is exactly what I wanted to see. For today’s post, I’m using a question posed by Dr. Jerry Nesseler: “How can I quickly explain the new graph/pie chart on the updated Acugraph?” Here’s a bit of background. The chart he’s referring to is our patent-pending P.I.E. (personal integrated energetics)... Read more

TCM, AcuGraph and Herbs 5/5 (37)

We get lots of questions about TCM interpretations of AcuGraph results. TCM practitioners are sometimes confused about how to interpret graph findings that don’t *seem* to agree with their TCM training. One common example is Spleen Excess. What do you do when you see an excessive reading for the Spleen meridian in a graph, though TCM teaches the spleen can’t be in excess? What does it mean? Well, in this case, dampness is usually the... Read more
