Acugraph Validates Protandim

The Acugraph Meridian Imaging System measures the amount of energy in each of the 12 main acupuncture meridians. It then produces a graph of the results that allows the acupuncturist to develop a customized treatment plan for the patient.

Over the last two months, I've noticed significant improvements in some of my most complex patients once they started taking a nutritional supplement called Protandim.

Protandim has 8 peer-reviewed, scientific studies validating its effectiveness. Briefly, Protandim has been shown to reduce oxidative stress 40% to 70%. Because of this basic fact, over 20 universities world-wide are studying Protandim at their own expense.

For a look at the 8 completed studies go to www.pubmed.gov and type Protandim in the search engine. (Pubmed is the National Institute of Health website for scientific research.) Another way to get an objective view of Protandim is to click here to watch a 9 minute ABC News Investigative Report.

Granted, my observations with the Acugraph are not peer-reviewed like the PubMed studies, but it does give another perspective on how Protandim can improve health. For example, in a study done at Louisiana State University, Protandim was shown to decrease skin cancer by 33% and skin tumors by 57%.

How might that information be displayed on the Acugraph? The Metal element, whose associated meridians are the Lung and Large Intestine, corresponds to the skin. Could we see a change in that on the graph? Yes. In my observations, the metal element improved 50% to 100% in several patients. Again, as a disclaimer, this is a small sample but I find it interesting that there is a possible connection to the published study.

I will continue to make observations to see how the Acugraph corroborates the peer-reviewed research.
