Energy Medicine and Gemstone Harmonics: A History of Harmonics Development and a Case Report
Abstract (Narrative): Piezoelectricity exists in the human body when stress or mechanical excitation is applied directly to the crystalline structure of bones. It has also been found recently in collagen, cartilage, tendons, teeth, the trachea, intestines, muscle fibres and blood vessels. We have experimented with clinical applications utilising Quartz Crystal and Gemstones to treat various patient conditions and report our finding that the sternum has reflex points acting as a mirror image of the spine. Clinically these reflex points are believed to relate to organ dysfunction or spinal misalignment upon the sternum and are associated with a piezoelectric effect.
Energy Medicine procedures involve assessing any change in strength of the right arm by placing the back of the patient’s left hand to the left of the sacrum and this region is called the Piezoelectric Vital Force Indicator. If weakness is noted of right arm upon left hand placement this indicates the need for the Piezoelectric Resonance Technique. With this positive test, the doctor palpates the six sternal piezoelectric reflex point determining the most sensitive of the points and sometimes there may be more than one point that could be extremely sensitive.
A specifically calibrated quartz crystal may then be utilised in a therapeutic manner. The patient may report a deep sense of tingling, warmth and relaxation.
Post treatment indicators are changes in grip strength and triceps and biceps deep tendon reflexes return to normal. Other clinical symptoms recorded on presentation are re-assessed and are generally ablated.
We conclude that low risk interventions that yield significant patient outcomes while difficult to study may still warrant clinical investigation and use in chiropractic practice when other procedures have proved ineffective. Further research is needed into the Piezoelectric Resonance Technique to determine what subset of patients might be best suited for this method of care and if the outcomes are reliable and consistent.

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) in a patient as a consequence of a concussion along with occipital headaches, dizziness and nausea: A case report
Abstract Objective: To investigate the synergetic benefits of combined noninvasive chiropractic protocols for treatment of post-traumatic POTS.
Clinical Features: A 36-year-old female sought chiropractic care for POTS induced nausea/dizziness/palpitations, constant bilateral occipital headaches, neck and sacroiliac/sciatic pain, exercise intolerance and bloating. Patient history, physical examination, and active 10-minute stand test established that she met the criteria for POTS. Prior to her presentation at this office her symptoms had persisted for a year and were unresponsive to other interventions (medical care/over-the-counter-analgesics).
Intervention and Outcome: Craniocervical and spinal misalignments, believed possibly leading to cerebral vasculature and connective tissue deformation, were corrected according to the Sacro-Occipital Technique and Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical evaluation protocols. Specific POTS related therapeutic exercises, diet modifications, as well as ocular fixation exercises were also implemented. Orthostatic vital sign testing was regularly recorded to assess POTS patient’s response to care. Following combined treatment and adjunct therapy, the patient no longer met the criteria for POTS, did not exhibit pain or orthostatic intolerance symptoms to postural change except for mild brief bouts of dizziness.
Conclusion: Further research is needed to determine what subsets of patients with POTS might also respond to this conservative chiropractic care approach.
