Meridians, and Alphabiotics
(This material represents the author's opinion
and is independent from any persons or corporations mentioned.)
It is life force that distinguishes animate
objects from inanimate objects, the living from the dead and
health from disease. This life force did not "evolve";
it was created by God. According to the book of Genesis, He
spoke and life was formed. But the life force He gave to man
is different; it is His very breath. Much research has been
given to the composition and preservation of life.
Life force is basically excited molecules
or vibration. It is not a thing it is an action. We know it
as electricity. These vibrations are composed of ions (electrolytes)
that carry a positive or negative charge. This is known as
magnetism or energy and is found in all living things. It
is a natural force that pushes and pulls. Unlike static electricity
in which the ions fly in all directions, electricity in living
beings has direction and is organized. The earth is full of
life and is a huge magnet, its magnetism is known as gravity.
Plants have magnetism as well. If you have ever smelled a
flower you are experiencing the magnetic field of that flower.
As discussed on other pages the body is composed of a certain
number of vibrations. According to Dr. Norman Walker, A healthy
human body has (roughly) 47,000,000,000 vibrations every second
as per the Angstrom Unit.
What is polarity? Isn't it just a term
used by electricians or those involved in electrical engineering,
what does is have to do with health?
As mentioned above, the electrical field of
a living being is organized. We will use the earth as an example.
It has magnetic poles (the North and South poles). Scientists
have stated that the majority of the earth's core is made
up of magnetic materials creating a magnetic pull. The pull
is more powerful at the poles than along the center. This
magnetism is what enables us to use a compass. Poles contain
opposite electrical qualities (one is positive and one is
negative). According to the dictionary, Polarity is "the
quality or condition inherent in a body that exhibits opposite
properties or powers in opposite parts or directions
state or quality of having poles or regions of intensity with
mutually opposite qualities." In other words, polarity
is the possession of poles and positive and negative electricity.
Every living thing possesses polarity. As with all processes
in the body, polarity must have balance. There must be the
proper amount of negatively and positively charged ions present
and active in the body. If you have any exposure to kinesiology,
you know that the body's electrical flow starts at the umbilical
(naval), flows upward across the top of the head, down the
back, under the feet and back to the umbilical. The top of
the head is positive and the bottom of the feet is negative.
The front of the body carries the positively charged ions
and the back of the body carries the negatively charged ions.
We are positive on the front and negative on the back.
What are meridians and their connection
The word meridian means "A great circle
surrounding a sphere and intersecting the poles". Simply
put, a meridian is a path to all parts of the body used by
positive and negative energy in connection to functions of
the organs, muscles, tissues, etc. According to Dr. John Thie,
there have been 14 major body meridians radioactively, thematically,
and electronically mapped. Kinesiologists call them acupressure
vessels. Dr. Thie says that energy actually flows through
the meridian unbroken in one direction and from one meridian
to another in an infinite manner (no beginning or end). Therefore,
he has presented the sequence of meridians as a wheel, which
flows from the surface of the body to deep within. (This information
is in his book, Touch for Health.
See Evaluation Tools
page for more info.) Of course we can only work with the external
passages, which effects the internal portions. All along the
meridian there are acupuncture (electro-magnetic) points.
(Have you ever stepped on a rock and felt it in your hip as
well as on the bottom of your foot? That sensation traveled
along a meridian.) The malfunction of these points can be
detected by voltage meters and muscle testing. Personally,
I have seen many meridians swell or become engorged when an
imbalance is present. One very dramatic example came by way
of a 19-year-old girl. She had a small swelling on her forehead,
which had persisted for 2 years. Not one health care provider
yielded relief and her concern was mounting. I discovered
that a meridian was blocked and with a simple manipulation
released the energy flow. By the time her appointment was
over (1/2 hour) the swelling was almost flat. This reminded
me of a garden hose. If you turn on the water and pinch the
hose, water cannot travel beyond that point and it will enlarge
or rupture the hose.
Unrestricted energy flow within the meridian promotes homeostasis
and optimal body function.
How does a meridian become blocked?
Meridians are likened to circuits. Polarity
is dependent upon these circuits. The electrons travel through
these circuit paths and create electricity. Many things can
overload the circuit and it cannot function without being
reset. This works identically to the circuit breakers and
electrical equipment in the home. When a storm sends an electrical
surge through the house an overload is created and the circuit
may pop a breaker. In a human body a "surge" can
be stress, sickness, an injury or a fall, emotional shock,
exposure to chemicals, or something as simple as poor diet
or dehydration. Many times the result of a "popped breaker"
is a subluxated vertebra or a bone out of place in the back.
This can lead to problems throughout the nervous and muscular
system. As a matter of fact I have never seen a person diagnosed
with neurological problems such as M.S., Parkinson's, or M.D.
who did not have blocked meridians and polarity problems.
I am not saying that if you have a blocked meridian that you
will be diagnosed with one of these diseases. I am saying
that polarity and meridian problems always accompany neurological
diseases like these. It is my opinion that one of the first
steps taken for a person with neurological conditions should
be electrical balance.
How can polarity and meridian health be
Of course it makes sense to get rest, slow down, recreate,
eat right and exercise. Beyond that, I have discovered that
raw food juicing (see Diet
and Juicing page for more info) and consuming enzymes
and minerals are a great boost to electrical balance. Keeping
proper pH balance is a must as well (see pH

These supplements have also been utilized in electrical balance
and are carried by most herb companies mentioned on this site:
Spirulina, Chlorophyll, Alfalfa, Parsley, (almost anything
green), Gotu Kola, Skullcap, Valerian Root, Ginkgo Biloba,
Blessed Thistle, Lady's Slipper, Sage, Bee Pollen, B Complex,
essential fatty acids like Flax seed oils, fish oils, lecithin
etc., and essential oils. (See Educational
Resources - Products
Guide page for info on these supplements.) I also believe
that massage, Touch for Health technique, chiropractic therapy,
and cranio-sacral therapy goes a long way to restore correct
polarity. My favorite is Alphabiotic Alignment.
What is Alphabiotic Alignment?
Alphabiotics is healing from within. Dr. James
Andry, an Alphabioticist in my area, authored the following
information (I am using it with permission):
Introduction to Alphabiotics
The goal of this article is to give the reader a basic understanding
of the basic concepts and practice of Alphabiotics. There
are many aspects, theories, and effects of the Alphabiotic
alignment, but the physical nature will be the focus here.
We know that man is a spiritual being, he has a soul and lives
in a body. Alphabiotics deals principally with mind-body relationship.
Much research has dealt with the effects of thought on the
physical body, confirming the scripture, "As a man thinketh
in his heart, so is he." Along with thought and attitude,
the physical brain and its chemistry, electricity, and mechanics
determines the health a person possesses. According to Albert
Einstein and new studies confirm that our bodies are much
more energy than material. The electrical properties have
a vital effect on health.
The brain processes 100 million bits of information every
second. It organizes, orchestrates, and coordinates all the
body's functions. Through the nervous system, the brain electrically
sends messages to all systems, organs, and cells to keep the
body functioning properly.
The brain partially shuts down nonessential-for-survival functions
when it receives sensory input that the body is in danger.
This life-saving feature was designed to be used in times
of temporary situations such as an attack by an enemy or a
dangerous animal. The person would need all available energy
to either run from the danger or fight. Digestion, metabolic
function and high level thinking for example are not needed.
When the dangerous situation is resolved the brain would return
to its normal function including thinking, metabolism, healing
Low level, insidious, constant stress keeps one in this "fight
or flight" state for lengthy periods of time. The brain
then becomes locked into this inappropriate stress state that
robs the body of the natural healing ability we were born
with. As the brain redirects energy to the fight/flight areas
of need, many systems, organs, and cells are left without
the electrical signals they need to do their jobs.
The brain is divided into two hemispheres. The right hemisphere
controls the left side of the body and the left hemisphere
controls the right side. When in balance, the brain efficiently
sends and receives messages using its available electrical
energy. When locked into an inappropriate stress state, the
dominant hemisphere sends too much electricity down the side
it controls and the passive hemisphere has less than needed
to send down the side it controls. The dominant side becomes
contracted and overworked causing a measurable leg length
difference. The passive side becomes weak. Both sides are
made susceptible to injury and energy is robbed from systems,
organs, and cells. They are then not able to function properly.
The prolonged structural imbalance will create a ten-pound
weight-bearing difference for each one-half inch of leg length
difference. Assuming the average of forty-four steps per minute,
four hundred forty more pounds are lifted on the short leg
side. If this person walks ten hours a day they will have
lifted 264,000 pounds more on that short leg side. Having
a short leg causes a tremendous drain of limited energy, strain
Our society is one of the most stressful in the world. Job
demands, time demands, interpersonal conflicts, finances,
regrets, guilt, fear all combine to create this health destroying
stress state. We are constantly on guard as if we were in
immediate danger. The defense system is necessary for survival,
but we were never intended to live hour after hour, day after
day, week after week, year after year prepared for danger
that does not even exist. We need to be taken out of this
stress state and brought into a state of calm, normal brain
The alphabiotic alignment sends a sensory impulse to the brain
that has five immediate results. The alignment slows the brain
down into alpha wave speed where healing best occurs. It causes
spinal fluid to be pumped into the brain stem, which allows
better electrical transfer. The brain is unlocked from the
limbic override system, (fight or flight), designed for survival.
There is a better flow of information between the hemispheres
of the brain and the spine is slightly decompressed.
The result of these five effects is a better state for healing
to occur than that person has had since he first became locked
into this inappropriate stress state. A person then enters
that state most favorable to become well. Healing can freely
flow from the brain to all parts of the person.
The Alphabiotic alignment is quick, safe, firm, but gentle.
A person has no idea how well they can be until they possess
the ability to be well. The alignment gives the potential
to be well. Balance is restored first to the brain then realized
in the rest of the body. Health comes from within. Within
a balanced brain.

Alignment. It is not written for the purpose of diagnosis,
treatment of disease, or to make medical claims.)
Everyone is born with a certain amount of
healing capability. Stress on the electrical system reduces
the healing ability; therefore, anything used for healing
will not benefit beyond the body's ability to respond to it.
Alphabiotic alignment allows the brain to have access to 100%
of it inherent healing capability. Herbs, food, supplements,
water and even the air you breathe will be used on a more
efficient level in balance than out of balance. I believe
this discipline is one of the most far-reaching and thorough
implements for meridian and polarity maintenance available
today. For more information contact:
