Negative pressure of cupping induces skin deformation such as ecchymosis and purpura in a circular shape. Thus, there is a desire to treat skin before depigmentation and scarring occurs. Therefore, we introduce laser therapy, a widely used technique treat pigmentation in dermatology. Various parameters of laser therapy can be applied, so to determine the optimal exposure parameters that do not damage the surrounding tissues, the subjects were divided into four groups: a non-stimulation group and three laser groups (4 J/cm2 group, 6 J/cm2 group, and 8 J/cm2 group). We selected the wavelength and output of laser as follows: 660nm and 50mW. The 40 were divided into four groups of 10. In the first experiment, we measured skin temperature using Digital infrared thermography in order to observe whether the laser could cause heat damage. In the second experiment, each group received the assigned laser therapy protocol every 24 hours for 72 hours. We obtained a skin image using a cross polarization technique. Previous studies have shown that a*and E.I (erythema index) represent the degree of skin erythema (hemoglobin content). M.I (melanin index) indicates the degree of skin pigmentation (melanin content). Hence, skin color information was analyzed with the a*, erythema index (E.I), and melanin index (M.I) for 72 hours. None of the laser exposure parameters led to skin damage by heating or energy dissipation. The results of a*, E.I, and M.I of all groups showed the different recovery rates towards the normal skin color information before cupping. As energy density increases, the result of a* and E.I showed the fast recovery rate. There was no significant different between M.I at non-stimulation group and M.I at 4 J/cm2. Therefore, the least energy density as 6 J/cm2 is need for the recovery of melanin content. The a*, E.I, and M.I at 8 J/cm2 group rather than other groups were significantly recovered to normal skin color. In conclusion, the laser therapy (energy density: 8 J/cm2) has a significant recovery of the skin erythema and skin pigmentation except to skin damage.

During the 1st day of European Congress for Integrative Medicine held September 9-11, 2016, almost the entire 1st day was scheduled for the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, which was originally developed by this author, & consists of 2 main parts for which a U.S. patent was issued in 1993. One is a non-invasive, detection of various molecules using very strong Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Resonance Phenomenon between 2 identical molecules with identical weight. Using this strong EMF Resonance Phenomenon, most molecules & microorganisms can be detected rapidly and non-invasively without directly contacting patients. We measured the HPV-16 infection of 70 participants non-invasively in the first 30 minutes, then screened cancers for 40 volunteers who completed one page “Mouth, Hand & Foot Writing Form,” which took an average of 5~10 minutes for each person to complete. Screening of 75 common cancers was made in 2-5 minutes for each patient. Analysis of 40 volunteers revealed 32 persons had some malignancies including 5 Anaplastic Astrocytomas of the Lbrain, 3 Multiple Myelomas, 7 Hodgkin’s Lymphomas, 8 Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphomas, 2 rectum cancers (with chief complaints of worsening Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Although everyone had HPV-16 infections between about 6,000ng & 250ng, malignancy could not be found among those who had less than 1,200ng. Our individualized safe, effective and economical treatment of various cancers consists of optimal doses of Vitamin D3 with or without Taurine and/or PQQ depending on the positive synergetic compatibility among these 3 substances as normal parts of human tissue. The most serious 2 cases of rectum cancer with multiple metastasis, we confirmed very significant anti-cancer effects of their optimal doses of vitamin D3, which is increased to 800~1,000 I.U. (due to advanced cancer with multiple metastasis instead of the usual 400 I.U. for average adults). The unique 7 beneficial effects of optimal dose of Vitamin D3 (also Taurine or PQQ) include: 1) significant Anti-cancer effects without side effects; 2) marked decrease in DNA mutation as decreases in 8-OH-dG; 3) marked urinary excretion of Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi, & Toxic substances, including Asbestos & metals; 4) marked increase in Acetylcholine in the brain & the rest of the body; 5) marked increase in DHEA; 6) marked decrease in β-Amyloid (I-42); 7) marked decrease in Cardiac Troponin I. Optimal dose of Vitamin D3 is clinically most important for cancer, ischemic heart, and memory problems. Optimal dose of Taurine is 150~175mg and PQQ is 5-7.5mg and should be taken 3-4 times a day, depending on the patient. Medications and supplements including excessive Vitamin C (as well as multivitamins) but also inhibited optimal doses of Vitamin D3, Taurine & PQQ. Often coffee, drinks containing high Vitamin C content (e.g., some green tea & orange juice), & multivitamins as well as pain medicine (e.g., Oxycodone), strong EMF from cellular phones, and strong negative BDORT underwear often completely eliminate the above beneficial effects of Vitamin D3 and promote growth of cancer.

The article presents literature data and our own research on metameric acupuncture theory projection zones of visceral organs (Hirata area), interrelation of endocrine glands and vertebra (in Pak Jae Woo), internal organs and interspinousspacing (''Chzhud Chi''). By the method of molecular and tissue identification (Y. Omura) we have isolated areas of the endocrine glands and internal organs, their key points allowing to use metameric acupuncture in order to improve the diagnostic and therapeutic process.

Objective: It was postulated in our previous publications that the meridian channels as conceived in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are various standing waves arising from harmonic rhythmic sound frequencies originating from the human heart beat. BIOCERAMIC is an artificial material able to produce a weak force field causing different biophysical and systemic health benefits, with the key characteristics of hydrogen bonds weakening and microcirculation enhancement. Since discovering that the effects of a BIOCERAMIC field can be transmitted via sound waves propagation, we then also developed a BIOCERAMIC Resonance device to produce weak force field throughout the body, and achieve resonance with the body’s meridian channels to reinforce microcirculation. Methods: Since our previous research proved BIOCERAMIC can produces changes in ectodermal current levels, the present evaluation on reflexology is done by the application of Electric Current Detection (ECD) to the palmar surface of the hands matching correlative organs and glands loci to reflex points according to standard reflexology. The procedure will compare changes in the electrical current observed before and after a session of BIOCERAMIC Resonance treatment on the soles of the subjects’ feet. We also conducted a procedure using corona discharge (Kirlian) photography of the hands to examine whether the coronal intensities could be affected by application of the BIOCERAMIC patch. Intensities are shown on the screen of a computer using special software that categorizes intensities into five zones. Results: Under the continuous treatment of BIOCERAMIC Resonance on soles of the feet and simultaneous stimulation on the specific point on the surface of the ear representing the urinary bladder. The electrical current (Δμ ampere) on the areas in the hands are decreased from the beginning of the experiment, but only the specific area on the surface of the ear representing the urinary bladder was exhibited increased of the electrical current (Δμ ampere), with statistically significant difference (p<0.05). To the other study we evaluated the validity of reflexology and corona discharge (Kirlian) photography by applying BIOCERAMIC Resonance and small adhesive patches made from the BIOCERAMIC material. Significant differences were evident on four out of five different zones of the computerized images. Conclusion: Our findings suggest the existence of presupposed virtual channels or reflex points on the skin surface of the feet, hands, and ears that connect or somehow reflect back to specific internal organs, as mapped out on standard charts found in reflexology. Furthermore, the depicted corona intensities from five zones shown on a computer screen of corona discharge photography seem to indicate that the volunteer subjects are affected by the BIOCERAMIC patches. This study demonstrates the operation of the BIOCERAMIC Resonance device is able to produce weak force field through the body, which is objectively measurable and thereby scientifically integrating the concepts of reflexology, meridian channels and biofield therapy.
