Acugraph - Computerized Acupuncture Testing

The Acugraph is a non-invasive, computerized, acupuncture testing software, that accurately measures the amount of energy, 'chi,' or 'life force,' traveling through your twelve main acupuncture meridians. It is this life force energy that keeps you alive, and, powers all functions in your body; breathing, digestion, vision, thinking, movement, talking, hormone creation, cell replication, etc.
Acupuncture meridians are invisible pathways that conduct the flow of energy throughout the body. The 12 main acupuncture meridians are:

  • Lung
  • Spleen 
  • Heart
  • Small Intestine
  • Triple Heater (Metabolism)
  • Large Intestine
  • Liver
  • Kidney 
  • Bladder
  • Galbladder
  • Stomach

The Acugraph uses modern computer technology to accurately assess, and, give an 'inside look' at how the acupuncture system is functioning.  It makes the invisible acupuncture system visible, as a tangible, hard-copy graph printout, and provides an exact energetic blueprint from which to work.


Dr. Karp combines several cutting-edge technologies into each customized treatment. The Acugraph printout acts as the blueprint  in a uniquely accurate way. Dr. Karp uses this printout, along with advanced applied kinesiology testing, to determine the true underlying issues that are causing symptoms. The issues may be related to environmental toxins, allergies, emotional, structural, immune challenges or even hereditary imbalances. This technology saves time, energy, and expense by quickly uncovering the true issues.  In addition, the Acugraph recommends which acupuncture points need to be treated to bring the body into deep energetic balance. Dr. Karp, using his unique combination of therapies, helps take the body all the way to 100% balance. In this unique state the body can then effectively detoxify itself and address the underlying issue(s).


Applied Kinesiology - Speaking the Body’s Language

As human beings,  we speak ‘verbal languages,’ such as English, Spanish, and French, to name a few.  Similarly, your body has an internal,  ‘non-verbal language’ all its own, called “Bio-Energetics.”  Renowned author Dr. David Walther’s states “The body has a language providing information that can lead to the discovery of the cause of health problems; the key is an ability to understand the language.  Failure to read body language regarding health is very similar to an inability to interpret a foreign language.  The information in the language may be very valuable, but unless one can read the language, the information is useless.”  Applied Kinesiologists are rigorously trained to test and read the body, and communicate with it, in its non-verbal language.  By doing so, vital (often unheard) bodily information can be accessed, and the proper health restorative therapies implemented.


Dr. Karp focuses on non verbal language, “bio-energetics." He has found it to be incredibly accurate.   Applied kinesiology gives us direct access into the software, and unmatched intelligence of the human body.  We are able to access the underlying causes of one’s health challenges and symptoms.  For example, a patient may come in complaining of chronic, severe migraine headaches.  Using applied kinesiology evaluation, we may find the following causes; misaligned vertebrae in the upper part of the neck, causing stress to nerves that innervate the head, spasm and muscle dysfunction of the trapezius and levator scapulae muscles, toxic and stressed kidneys, congested and sluggish liver, congested lymphatic system, old and unresolved anger residing in the liver and fear in the kidneys, and a parasite overload in several organs.  These imbalances, toxicities and dysfunctions are the real ongoing threats to the health of this patient.  The migraine headaches are simply the symptom.  Only through applied kinesiology testing, can we get this type of valuable information directly from the body, quickly, accurately and cost effectively.  By speaking the body’s language (bio-energetics), we are able to “hear” what the body is trying to tell us (oftentimes screaming) about its state of health, function and well-being.   

Computer Assisted Acupuncture

In our wellness center, we use a cutting edge computer software program called "The Acugraph." 
The Acugraph is a non invasive, painless, and accurate way of measuring the energy, or life force energy, traveling through your 12 main acupuncture meridians. It is like an MRI of your acupuncture system. It makes the invisible energy visible.  A bar graph is generated and printed with the results of your test. 
The bar gragh guides Dr. Karp to what acupuncture points on your body need to be treated to attain a very unique, deep, and one of a kind state of energetic balance. The intention of acupuncture is to have your body in deep energetic balance, in this unique state the body is able to heal itself at its optimal potential. Using the findings from the Acugraph, this becomes a reality every time. 
It is in the unique state of 100% energetic balance, coherence, and reorganization that the body is able to truly detoxify and heal itself.  
By treating off the Acugraph findings,all your organs (liver, lungs, kidneys), glands (thyroid, adrenals, hypothalamus) and systems (hormonal, digestive, circulatory) have an energetic score of 10 out of 10. 
It is then that the possibility of optimum healing happens. Deep detoxification and optimum healing for 3-4 days post treatment. One great benefit is that Acugraph testing can be done on babies and kids so they can have the benefit from acupuncture.  I use "energetic acupuncture" and acupressure on children so they too can benefit from this work.

The Balance - Computerized Nutritional Testing

"What Vitamins Should I Be Taking?"
This is one of the questions most frequently asked of a health care professional. The answer varies for everyone because everyone is different on a nutritional, biochemical, stress, hereditary, functional and dietary level. Everyone has different needs at different times in their life. In addition, everyone has different health challenges and weaknesses.


On any given day, patients bring in literally bagfuls of vitamins, herbs and homeopathic remedies to see if they are 'good for them.' Upon careful applied kinesiology and muscle testing, on average, only 1-3 out of 10 of these test as helpful for that particular person. The body may need those supplements only for a week or two.


What is "The Balance"?
The Balance is a leading-edge, computerized nutritional testing software that reads and analyzes the energetic function of the human body (glands, organs, systems). Energetic function always precedes physical function.


When you place your hand on the 'cradle,' the computer software sends many subtle, non-toxic, digital 'stress signals' to the body through the cradle. Simultaneously, the software is monitoring and analyzing how the body is dealing with those digital stress signals. This occurs for 6-7 minutes. The software then recommends the exact whole food nutritional supplements that will address and deeply balance your imbalances and weaknesses on a nutritional level.
When the body is in balance on a nutritional and biochemical level, it has the very best chance of experiencing optimum function, deep detoxification and optimum healing. When the body is moving toward wellness on a daily basis, there is much less chance for degenerative disease and illness.
The Balance is not about addressing symptoms. When internal imbalances, toxicities, and weaknesses are too much for the body to deal with, they show up as symptoms. When these core issues are being addressed effectively by the body, symptoms quietly fade away.
The Balance recommends the whole food nutritional supplements that your body needs to address deep internal imbalances, weaknesses and toxicities that create dysfunction, symptoms, premature aging and ill health. We all want to have a body that is functioning as close to 100% as possible, 100% of the time.
Whereas acupuncture corrects imbalances and weaknesses on an energetic level, The Balance corrects imbalances and weaknesses on a nutritional level. It is Dr. Karp's intention to bring you the best of both worlds, so you can experience long term optimum health and well-being. Now, when people ask: "What nutritional supplements should I be taking?" there is a clear and definitive answer. 

Get tested with The Balance and get on the exact whole food nutritional supplements in the exact dosages that are right for you.


Dr Karp offers supplements by the company Standard Process. They are "concentrated whole food supplements" at body-friendly therapeutic dosages. The body interprets these supplements as concentrated whole foods and uses them effectively. When you take synthetic, laboratory-developed supplements, the body interprets these as foreign substances and has difficulty digesting, assimilating and using them.


Toxins, Allergies and Food Sensitivities

People frequently come to see Dr. Karp after they have exhausted many other forms of traditional and alternative treatment. They say, "I have been to many doctors and have had many tests, and either nothing shows up or they can't find anything."
One of the most common underlying causes that gets missed is:

TOXICITY:
1. Chemical toxicity - pesticides, formaldehyde, hydrocarbons etc.
2. Heavy metal toxicity - lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, etc.
3. Immune challenges - yeast, virus, bacteria, strep and parasites
4. Food sensitivities - wheat, sugar, dairy,  soy, eggs, etc.


People may have a combination of all four within the body! The more toxicity, the greater the symptoms. These four types of toxins can land in any organ or gland, causing imbalance, dysfunction, eventually symptoms and, later on, degenerative disease. The resulting symptoms are often treated with (more) toxic drugs and medications, while the toxicity and associated ndysfunctions continue.


These core underlying issues (toxins) are often not seen with conventional testing, and are often missed, while being the true underlying cause of many of today's maladies.
The key is to access whichever toxins - chemicals, heavy metals, microbial overgrowths and/or food sensitivities - are within the body, and then effectively clear them using body-friendly therapies.
Most people, and even health care professionals, are not yet aware that these four types of toxins, which are the core underlying causes of most of today's maladies. These toxins must get cleared from the body in an orderly, body-directed fashion. That, and staying away from the offending, allergenic and inflammation causing foods, makes a great difference in people's symptoms, and how they are feeling.
When a patient comes in with certain bodily symptoms, I almost always test for these four types of toxicities. Placing a vial of the offending toxin (we use homeopathic replicas of the toxin) on the body, while receiving deeply balancing acupuncture, 'cues' the body to release those toxins over the following three days. The patient is instructed to stay away from the foods that are interacting with those toxins for three days following the treatment. We have had many, many success stories eliminating these little-known yet health-destroying toxins from the body.
