  • Normal & abnormal blood pressure & blood flow in the brain (cephalic hyper- & hypo-tension) & other parts of the body; effects of acupuncture & electro-therapy on blood chemistry & neurotransmitters; how to localize exact locations, shapes, and diameters of acupuncture points.
  • Acupuncture & electro-therapy in all major branches of medicine and supervised practical training.
  • Beneficial and adverse effects of acupuncture, electrotherapy, laser and (+) Qi Gong; how to detect & prevent (-) Qi Syndrome & EMF hypersensitivity.
  • Diagnosis &therapy based on organ representation concepts: cerebral cortical, scalp (old & new scalp diagnosis and acupuncture), auricular (French, Chinese, and new), facial, tongue (improved new tongue diagnosis & tongue acupuncture), nasal, lip (Ayurvedic & new), eyebrow, hand (Korean & new accurate hand acupuncture ), pulse (Chinese, Tibetan, and new pulse diagnosis), trunk (Chinese Mu & Shu points and corresponding new, accurate locations), and foot representation.
  • Environmental electro-magnetic field related symptoms & intractable medical problems (e.g. Mesothelioma, cancer, intractable pain, CVA, etc.) & how to treat or prevent
  • Telomere, Aging, Apoptosis, Cell Immortality, Cancer, Asbestos; the effect of Acupuncture or Shiatsu on the Telomere of normal and cancer cells.
  • Telomere & Longevity; evaluation of anti-aging substances and their safe & effective anti-cancer effects from telomere; beneficial & adverse effects of DHEA
  • Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, its diagnostic & therapeutic applications: imaging of internal organs and their corresponding meridians & acupuncture points; identification & localization of bacteria, viruses, malignant tumors, neurotransmitters, hormones, drugs, heavy metals; detection of useful invisible info from X-ray, MRI, and SPECT; how to detect & prevent harmful electro-magnetic field radiation from home & work environments; Asbestos-related, intractable medical problems; Selective Drug Uptake Enhancement Method to deliver medication to the pathological organ where drug uptake is very low. Quick, non-invasive screening of cancer (Telomere, Integrin α5β1, Oncogen C-fos Ab2, Asbestos, Acetylcholine), cardiovascular disease (L-Homocysteine, cardiac Troponin-I, BNP, CRP, etc.), and Alzheimer’s disease & Autism (Acetylcholine, β-amyloid (1-42), Tau Protein, Asbestos, Al, Hg, Pb, and bacterial & viral infections).

  • Detection of important invisible medical information, which standard common laboratory tests often fail to detect, from R- & L- mouth-writing, handwriting, & foot-writing for early diagnosis of intractable medical problems and evaluation of therapeutic effects.
  • Effects of press-needle acupuncture at True ST 36 or eating, drinking or applying special natural substances, all of which increase normal cell telomere over 500 ng BDORT units, in turn reducing cancer cell telomere to near zero and inhibiting cancer growth, causing the excretion of Asbestos and undesirable metals and chemical substances from the heart, brain, pancreas, kidney etc. and helping to rejuvenate the body and maintain good health.
