Testing Methods & Tools We Use

Testing Methods
  • History
    • We want to know about your health from birth to now. Toxic exposure, medication history, dental history, accidents injuries recurring problems. Everything
  • Consultation
    • What are your goals? What do you want to achieve by being here?
  • Symptom Survey
    • This is a list of many questions designed to let us know where your biggest problems are. (You can take this test on line!) Go to Take Health Test.

When was the last time a doctor asked you more than
"Where does it hurt"?

When was the last time an ordinary medical doctor wanted to know things about you like:

  • Did you have ear infections as a child?
  • How often did you take antibiotics or other drugs?
  • How much sleep do you get?
  • When was the last time you felt well?
  • What happened before that?
  • When was the last time a doctor asked you about your diet?
  • What things have you tried that helped?
  • What have you tried that didn't help?
  • How is your problem affecting your life?
  • Has anyone ever helped you understand how all your health concerns are linked together?

Symptom Survey

We have a very comprehensive questionnaire that enables us to develop a database of your medical history. This helps us to focus in on the most stressed and toxic areas of your body and to give us an accurate picture of your current health level. We will be happy to go over part the information you provide us in the symptom survey over the phone. Then we can determine if you are a good candidate to come in for a more comprehensive health assessment.

Palpation Technique

We are also specially trained to palpate the spine, the head and acupressure points to determine which organs or bones are stressed in your body.

Muscle Response Testing

The relative strength or weakness of different muscles correlates with the energy levels of different organs.

PH Testing

The PH of your saliva and urine correlate to the strength of your bodies digestive & elimination system.

Applied Kinesiology (AK)

AK is a method of analysis that we use to determine relative strength or weakness of specific muscles to determine overall body function and determine the best treatment, be it meridian (acupressure), nutritional, homeopathic, energetic, diet, exercise, or chiropractic. We recommend the following website:

BRT (Body Restoration Technique)

This is a non-invasive method of locating and removing energy blockages. It uses reflex points similar to acupressure points. This is one of our most effective and widely used tools in our clinic. We suggest you visit the following web site:

CRA (Contact Reflex Analysis)

This technique uses body acupressure points to help determine what types of herbs, homeopathic products, or nutrition a patient may require.

The human body is like a computer, made up of the brain (electrical generator and memory bank) and thousands of miles of electrical wires called nerves. These nerves connect every organ, gland and tissue of the body. These nerves also connect with "fuses" or "breaker switches" called contact reflexes. By contacting these reflexes, using the body's muscular system as an indicator, we are able to monitor the function of body systems.

Nambudripod Allergy Elimination Technique (NAET) and BioSet

These are two similar systems used to determine what foods are putting a stress on the body and reduced or eliminate the body's reaction to those foods.

Food triggers and toxic trigger techniques

There are several food trigger and toxic tests and techniques that are used today. Some of these tests and techniques are called, NAET, BioSet, BRT, and TBM. We use these techniques because they have provided the best results in our practice. The brand names are not important. The skill of the practitioner is the key to good results. It's important that your practitioner is familiar with many different techniques and has the ability to integrate them into a specialized program for each individual patient. For more info, please visit the following websites:

Chiropractic Techniques

We specialize in "low-force" chiropractic methods such as. "Low Force" means that during the adjustment there is no twisting of the neck or spine and no "popping " noise traditionally associated with chiropractic adjustments

  • Activator methods
  • BEST (Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique)
  • Torque Release Technique
  • Cranial-Sacral Therapy
  • Cranial Release Technique
  • Certified Egoscue Postural Analysis Specialist
  • Applied Kinesiology
Cranial-Sacral Therapy

•  Cranial-Sacral Therapy
•  Cranial Release Technique

Posture Correction Techniques:

Dr. Edrich is Certified as an Egoscue Postural Alignment Specialist. The Egoscue method is a method of analyzing posture and how you move in order to determine how your muscles function. The better your muscles function the better your alignment, the better your posture, the less your nerves pinch, the stronger and more balanced you become, the less pain and other symptoms you have.

Jack Nicklaus, the famous golfer credits the developer of this technique Pete Egoscue for saving his golf career by utilizing this method.

Auricular Therapy

This is a technique whereby we stimulate points on the ear to help balance body energy. This is especially helpful for people who wish to quit smoking, drug addiction and over eating.

Diet and Exercise Programs

Some patients need to improve their diet and increase or modify their exercise routines. We provide individualized advice and direction to enhance the effectiveness of other health treatments we may be using to assist you in obtaining your health goals. We integrate the ULTRA LITE program into our protocols.

Meridian Stress Assessment also known as Limbic Stress Assessment or Electrodermal Screening or bio-feedback

This is a piece of equipment that not only tests the resistance of energy flow over acupuncture meridians, but also helps find the best remedies, herbs, and treatment to unblock those flows and increase your energy, immune system, and metabolism.

Specialized Urine Test

These tests provide information regarding levels of malabsorbtion, vitamin deficiency, or body oxidation (body "rust"). It also shows if a person has toxic levels of ammonia nitrates and more. These tests can detect health concerns long before disease sets in. These are not ordinary medical tests. You have never been tested like this before.

Body Composition

This test measures the body's ratio of fat vs. lean muscle mass. Our equipment provides optimal accuracy.

Heart Rate Variability

This is an excellent test that provides information about the strength of the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. This measures how well your body can react and adapt to stress or toxins. For more info check out the following website.

A Breakthrough in PAIN relief!

Meridian Micro Point Therapy

Results are FAST. We find that 95% of people feel a significant difference, especially from pain, on the FIRST TREATMENT!

Meridian - The energy flows of the body each meridian has many points on it.

Micro - Small-there are smaller (Micro Meridians) on the hand that affect the larger meridians on the body

Point - We use pressure and metal pellets (no needles) to stimulate these points

This system affects the whole body by stimulating points on the hands, ears arms and legs!
By stimulating these specific points we can resolve pain and balance internal organ energy flows.
We have combined several systems together to make this one:

  • Chinese medicine
  • Functional physiology
  • Modern holistic practice
  • Homeopathy
  • Evaluation techniques form Applied Kinesiology
  • We find this method very safe, convenient and effective because
  • We don't use needles that can be painful
  • We use little metal pellets taped to the hands, ears or body
  • You do not have to get undressed
  • You repeat the treatments at home between visits
  • This technology works well in combination with other holistic methods such as homeopathy, herbs, nutrition, chiropractic adjustments, and exercise
