electroacupuncture according to Voll Pseudomedicine
A system of pseudodiagnosis and pseudotherapy based on the “Dermatron”, a galvanometric device invented in the 1970s by a German physician, Reinhold Voll, which he believed measured “electromagnetic energy flow” along acupuncture channels and provided information on organ functions. EAV practitioners claimed to treat “imbalances” identified by such devices by electrically stimulating the acupuncture points and/or administering homeopathic remedies.

After testing the patient's tolerance to medications with EAV (electroacupuncture according to Voll
), I used procaine 1% without epinephrine or preservatives and buffered to a pH of 7 with potassium hydroxide.
Beside observing the real action of these material products numerous times on others, I can offer an example from my own personal "guinea pig" experience of bioresonance testing (BRT) via an electroacupuncture according to Voll
(EAV) device many years ago.
