Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement (BIM) Assessment and Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA)

Bioelectrical Impedance Measurement (BIM) measures the electrical conductivity between specific points on the body measuring the resistance in this “circuit” between the points. Some well known BIM devices commonly in use in the medical field include EKG to measure heart function and EEG to measure brain function.

Meridian Stress Assessment (MSA) was developed in 1953 by Dr. Reinhold Voll and measures conductivity of electrical current at specific acu-points on the body related to specific organ systems and body functions. Dr. Voll found these points had a 20 times greater electrical conductivity than non acu-Points. There are 867 different acu-points that may be tested.

In our office we use the BioMeridian MSAS system. It is a FDA approved Class 2 medical device that uses 66 different acu-points to measure the impedance. These points are then analyzed by a computer program that compares it to over 1.5 million previous scans. This provides a measurement of the stress level in 14 different organ systems according to the principals of homotoxicology developed by Dr. Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg.

This information provides a baseline to measure the health of the patient. It can also be interpreted to direct treatment in many forms including homeopathic remedies and other nutritional supplements.
