Knowledge reaching back over millennia, paired with up-to-the-minute technology – this is probably the ideal combination to keep our bodies fit and healthy. The iLifeSOMM System was developed on the basis of scientific principles. The action can be demonstrated and explained using measurement methods recognised by orthodox medicine, e.g. measurements based on energy and dark-field microscopy, thermal imaging cameras, heart-rate variability, MRI or blood tests.
The areas of use for iLifeSOMM are almost infinite. From backache to depression, from burn-out to professional competition preparation for top-class athletes.
Scientific proofs of efficacy and fields of use
The iLifeSOMM System was developed to help people to break down everyday stress, to achieve perfect regeneration every day and – very importantly – to support the body in clearing energy blockages. Eight recognised forms of therapy, ranging from music and relaxation therapy to notes, tonal and vibration therapy and on to magnetic resonance therapy, micro massage and far infrared heat radiation have been combined in a single wellness system, the iLifeSOMM. The action of each individual component can be proved scientifically using recognised diagnostics systems.
Objective measurement method to ascertain energy status – iLifeSTAT
The science of acupuncture from Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on energy flows within the meridians. It is both scientifically known and recognised that the individual is made up of functional circuits that communicate with one another. There are 72 meridians, including 12 principal meridians, located on the left and right sides of the body and forming the energy channels of the body.
If no problems are present, energy flows unimpeded through these meridians and thus supplies energy to all the functional circuits of the body; the individual is healthy. If the flow stagnates in one of the energy pathways then symptoms will develop in the long term.
Over the centuries, the Chinese have used subjective methods, such as eye-reading diagnosis or feeling the pulse, to determine the status of the organs, functional circuits and meridians.
In our western cultures, we prefer to use objective measuring methods for diagnosis.
The iLifeSTAT meridian and energy status measuring system is a bridge between the intuitive “feeling” of energy and our rational, anatomical philosophy.
Measuring the meridians can be used to create a picture of the energy status of the body painlessly. The iLifeSTAT System measures skin resistance at the starting and endpoints of the classical meridians. A computer program is used to calculate the energy status of the body and to illustrate blockages and weak points in diagram form.
By taking a measurement both before and after use, the effect – the way in which iLifeSOMM causes vital energy to flow once more – can be demonstrated graphically. This allows the change in your energy status can be ascertained very accurately and your individual requirements can thus be targeted very specifically.
iLifeSTAT is a unique combination of Chinese knowledge going back 5,000 years and up-to-the-minute computer technology. A measurement can therefore determine the energy status of your body, and any energy imbalances and interference fields can be detected, together with blockages that may be caused by scar tissue, stress or mental problems. The results of the measurement allow a program to be devised that is adjusted to the individual user and also allow the efficacy to be observed.
The measurement method is non-invasive; the procedure is totally painless and lasts only about 20 minutes.
Meridian diagnostics and energy status measurement – space technology
In 1993 and 1994, Prof. Dr. med. Valery Polyakov orbited the earth non-stop for a total of 438 days in the MIR space station. A meridian diagnosis system was used on this flight to monitor the cosmonaut crews and for his own self-diagnosis and treatment. This preventive measure alone prevented him developing any symptoms of illness. In contrast to previous space flights (the American record at the time was 20 days non-stop in space) Prof. Polyakov returned to Earth fit and with no health problems.
Energy status, energy distribution and any blockages in the body can be visualised using the iLifeSTAT meridian diagnostics system and the change after just a single iLifeSOMM session can be shown.
iLifeSTAT – energy status measurement
iLifeSTAT is a computer analysis system for health. In the event of symptoms, the system determines which meridians are disturbed, what has caused this disturbance and what needs to be done to remedy it. It is a unique combination of 5,000-year-old Chinese knowledge based on the energy flows in the meridians with western rational logic and the measuring techniques of modern computer technology and microchips.
This means that your energy status can be ascertained very accurately and therapy can consequently be directed specifically to your needs. In this way, for example, you will discover the best setting and optimum action of the iLifeSOMM System.
Technical background of an iLifeSTAT Measurement
The energy status of the meridians is determined at the start and end points of the meridians. The measurements are delegable and reproducible. The measuring process is controlled by four microchips. 400 measurements are carried out for each measuring point within a few milliseconds. The computer interprets and processes the measured data, which are then displayed in graph form on the screen. The measurements are pressure-free and taken with an extremely low current within a very short period. The energy output at the acupuncture point measured is a constant 455 billionth of a Joule.
Measurement inaccuracies are filtered out and the computer calculates the meridian value. With a resistance measuring range from 20 kOhm to 60,000 kOhm, it is possible to measure even extremely sick patients. The measurement duration depends on the level of resistance. With a resistance of 1,000 kOhm it is 12 milliseconds, at 20,000 kOhm it is 150 milliseconds. The electrical load on the skin is 455 billionth of a Joule. This means that the cells are not damaged during the measurement as occurs with other procedures. The system has a measurement error of 0.25% (absolute reproducibility according to Prof. F. Popp. Erfahrungsheilkunde, January 2002).
Unlike most other systems, the acupuncture point is not mechanically or electrically stressed. The measuring pin is spring-mounted so that the measuring pressure of 20 grams is always constant and the measurement is totally reproducible. The measuring current of 0.4 microamperes is also very low. Minimal mechanical pressure and a very small current ensure optimum reliability and hence reproducibility of the measurement. Use of a 1.2 volt battery means that “electrosmog” is not perceptible around the apparatus. Transmission of the data from the measuring computer to the computer is undertaken using infrared so that no indirect electrical influence takes place via the computer either. All these factors make the measurements objective and reproducible.
The meridian measurement used in the iLifeSTAT has proven its value over many years and involves the following benefits and opportunities:
- Establishment of the energy status
- Detection of energy imbalances
- Finding the causes of chronic afflictions
- Observation and evaluation of the efficacy of treatments
- Detection of blockages arising from scar tissue, stress, psychological problems, etc., for example
- Detection of interference fields
An overall application plan consists of 4 steps:
- Removing the causes of physical problems and restoring bodily functions
- Bringing energy flow imbalances back into equilibrium
- Processing/integrating unintegrated and unprocessed emotions
- Accompanying the client into the life situation s/he desires
Since the meridians are all-encompassing and provide us with information about physical and mental disorders, iLifeSTAT can serve as a starting point for every treatment. By using the measured results we are far better able to determine the direction of measures to be taken and to test the results afterwards. iLifeSTAT measurements in combination with the use of the iLifeSOMM can quickly lead to effective holistic treatment.
Proof of efficacy using dark-field microscopy
It is both known and scientifically proven that weakened cell metabolism in the blood vessels results in water being deposited. If the vessels swell up, blood can flow only slowly. This, in turn, causes the blood corpuscles to form clumps which can absorb less oxygen. This negative effect is reinforced by “electrosmog” (electromagnetic radiation), such as is given off by radiation from mobile phones, radio and mobile phone transmitter masts and electrical appliances, by a poor diet, medicines, emotional problems, such as stress and overload, too little exercise and severe pollution of the air, soil and water by a wide variety of toxins. Ultimately, the result is poor supply to organs and tissue.
The current “status” of the blood can be observed under a dark-field microscope. Dark-field microscopy is an optical method of examining objects that are so small as to be well below the level of perception of the human eye and that can therefore not be viewed or can only be viewed to a limited extent without technical assistance.
The vibrations, music, notes, oscillations and pulsed magnetic fields generated according to scientific principles by the iLifeSOMM System improve cell metabolism, dilate the capillaries, break up the clumps (what is known as the sludging phenomenon) and thus allow the blood cells to take up and transport more oxygen. The result is that circulation to the whole body improves with higher supplies of oxygen and nutrients. Waste products are carried away.
Proof of efficacy using a thermal imaging camera
The process of using a thermal imaging camera to create pictures is known as thermography. Thermography is an imaging process that visualises the heat radiated by an object or body that is invisible to the human eye (medium infrared). In thermography, temperature distributions over surfaces are recorded and depicted. Thermography is a non-contact measurement procedure.
In the field of medicine, one of the uses of thermal imaging cameras is to detect the sites of local inflammations or infections. A thermal imaging camera can also be used to visualise the increased temperature radiation resulting from increased circulation, such as occurs, for example, after a single use of iLifeSOMM.
Proof of efficacy using heart-rate variability measurements
Heart-frequency or heart-rate variability (HRV) describes the ability of an organism to change the frequency of its cardiac rhythm. Spontaneous changes in the time between two heartbeats occur even at rest.
A healthy body uses autonomic, physiological regulation pathways to adjust the heart-rate constantly to instantaneous requirements. Physical exertion or mental stress is thus known to lead to an increased heart-rate, which normally decreases again on resting or relaxation. Greater variability in heart-rate indicates a greater ability to adjust to stress. In contrast, under a chronic stress load, both of these are more or less restricted and thus reduced because of the typically high, ongoing tension levels.
A heartbeat in a healthy individual is triggered by an impulse from the sinus node, the central pacemaker of the autonomic excitation system of the heart. This, in turn, is influenced by the higher-ranking vegetative nervous system, the sympathetic nervous system exerting an activating influence, one of the effects of which is to increase heart rate. Physical and mental stresses are accompanied by an increase in sympathetic nervous system activity in parallel to the physical functions controlled by the vagus nerve, such as digestion.
Just a single iLifeSOMM session results in a significant increase in heart-rate variability, the capacity to adjust to stress is increased, and the actions of the sympathetic and parasympathetic, and the enteric nervous systems, which, together, form the nervous system and control all the organs, are balanced out.
