Thanks to the efforts of my associates and supporters of the
Bi-Digital O-Ring Test.
Prof. HideoYamamura (Dean,
School of Medicine, Tokyo University; Former Chairman, Dept. of
Anesthesiology, School of Medicine, Tokyo University)
, Prof. Chifuyu Takeshige, (Dean, Showa University School of
Medicine; Former Chairman, 1st Physiology Dept., Showa
University School of Medicine),
Prof. Hitoshi Ohzu (Prof.
Dept. of Applied Physics and Dean, Graduate School of Science
and Engineering, Waseda University),
the other organizers, and particularly the extraordinary efforts
of Dr. Yasuhiro Shimotuura (Director of Internal Medicine, St.
Mary Hospital, 2nd largest hospital of Japan), his family and
associates), we are very happy to have the 1st International
Symposium on the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test in Japan. When we were
looking for a suitable palace for this Symposium, Mr. Ibuka,
Founder of Sony, Inc., generously offered use of Ibuka
International Auditorium of Waseda University, where Mr. Ibuka,
Prof. Hitoshi Ohzu, and I all graduated from the School of
Science & Engineering. Although it is the 1st International
Symposium in Japan, internationally speaking, the 1st
International Symposium ("Symposium on Non-Invasive Diagnostic
Method & Bi-Digital O-Ring Test," with 5 papers presented) was
held in October 12, 1985 at the School of International Affairs,
Columbia University, in combination with an International
Symposium on Acupuncture and Electro-Therapeutics, and this has
been repeated every year since then at Columbia University.
About 2 years ago, the International Symposium was also held at
the Institute of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beijing, with
Prof. Wang Xue Tai as coordinator, co-sponsored by the Institute
of Bone Injury, a major Chinese medical journal, and the Japan
Bi-Digital O-Ring Test Association. This 1st Japanese
International Symposium will actually be the 10th International
Symposium held in the past 8 years.
The Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, using the resonance phenomenon
between 2 identical substances, identifies and precisely
localizes pathogenic factors in different parts of the body,
long before detectable changes appears in blood chemistry or MRI
and the latest Western medical laboratory tests fail to detect
any abnormalities, thus often becoming possible to determine the
causes of diseases which were considered to be either difficult
or impossible to treat. It has subsequently often become
possible to treat many intractable medical problems. In general,
common reasons patients do not improve, in spite of the
therapeutic efforts of physicians, could be the following:
1) Diagnosis may be wrong.
2) Diagnosis may be correct, but incorrect treatment, including
ineffective or harmful treatment is given.
3) Diagnosis and treatment may be proper, but the patient may not be
following the doctor's treatment schedule.
4) Diagnosis and treatment are correct, as well as the medication
prescribed, but the dosage indicated for the patient may be
excessive for this individual and cause toxicity, or the dosage is
not sufficient, with the result being that the treatment is not
effective for this individual.
5) If one medication or treatment does not work, another medication
or treatment may be tried, and, during the process of trying to find
the best medication and treatment, some patients may become worse
than in the initial stage of the disease or may even die.
6) Even if the diagnosis and treatment are correct and the patient
is following the doctor's instructions faithfully, the medication
may not be reaching the pathological area where the medication is
supposed to be delivered, due to the presence of micro-circulatory
disturbances, although it does go to the normal parts of the body.
Under these conditions, the medication may not be effective. The
dosage may therefore be increased, and the normal parts of the body
may reach toxic dosage and develop side effects, or the medication
may have to be discontinued.
7) Diagnosis cannot be established and anti-symptomatic treatment is
8) Harmful, invisible environmental factors may exist which inhibit
improvement or cause or worsen the patient's condition, i.e.,
electromagnetic fields, radon, etc. in the home (particularly in the
bedroom) or work environment, daily intake of heavy metals in tap
water, or daily use of cups and pots containing heavy metals.
9) Either the patient or doctor may think that taking 2 different
effective medications at the same time may be better than one (and
the patient may not even tell the doctor he is taking additional
medication). However, such a combination, in some cases, cancels the
beneficial effects of both drugs instead of improving therapeutic
effects. The combination of 2 or more drugs can create a harmful
drug interaction, and, as a result, the treatment may either become
ineffective or the patient's condition worsens instead of improving.
These are some of the common problems leading to intractable medical
problems, but the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test is often able to solve
these problems, and, as a consequence, the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test
has been spreading all over the world. We have given seminars and
workshops or lectures in various parts of the world. Recently, in
almost every country in the world, increasing medical expenses have
become a major social and national problem, and the Bi-Digital
O-Ring Test can play a significant role in not only diagnosing and
treating intractable medical problems, but also in the early
detection and screening of cancer and other destructive diseases.
The Indirect Bi-Digital O-Ring Test can also be used, not only in
human diseases, but also in diseases of animals, plants and in
excised tissue. The test can be used very effectively to find or
develop new medicines. Originally, I discovered the powerful
anti-viral effects of EPA with DHA, for viruses of the Herpes
family, using the Bi-Digital O-Ring Drug Compatibility Test alone,
and eventually it was clinically confirmed.
before the 1st International Symposium on the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test
was held at Columbia University in 1985, I applied for a U.S. patent
for various aspects of the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, including the
application of resonance phenomena between 2 identical substances
for imaging of internal organs, as well as localizing and
identifying specific types of bacteria or viruses, cancers, and
other pathogenic organisms and substances, in addition to
identifying various drugs, neurotransmitters, etc. in the body. The
main reason for applying for the patent was that many scientists in
the U.S. told me that, if the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test was given a
U.S. patent, people would trust it, even though the Test might give
the appearance of subjectivity. I also wanted to avoid misuse of the
Bi-Digital O-Ring Test by unqualified persons.
initial patent application was almost rejected as "too unbelievable
to be true," due to insufficient superficial evaluations, if was
true. No patent had ever been issued using the human body as a
bio-sensor before 1985 until Patent Law was changed. In 1987, the
same patent was re-evaluated with additional scientific data and
clinical cases supporting its validity. However, again the patent
office requested that I should get supporting data not only from my
own research but also from that of others since all the research
data indicated that Dr. Omura can reproduce what he claimed but
there was no proof that other clinicians & researchers can reproduce
the same results. Eventually, with the help of many of my associates
in clinical fields and basic sciences in Medicine & Dentistry, both
in Japan and the United States, I was able to provide more and more
convincing data on both clinical and basic research on the
Bi-Digital O-Ring Test. In December, 1991, the U.S. Patent Office
informally informed the author through his patent lawyer that based
on the summary of few years research reports from leading MD & DDS
who are well known Professors in medical schools & dental schools
from Japan & USA they considered the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test to be a
worthwhile intellectual product but that we had to make new drawings
instead of the original supplied color photographs of examples of
imaging of normal and abnormal internal organs mapped on the the
patient's body surface, as well as other clinical examples
illustrating basic principles and applications. During Dec.1992 and
January of 1993, Tokai Television from Nagoya City, Japan,
broadcasted a series of two excellent, weekly 30 minutes science
documentary programs well known as TV Museum (equivalent NOVA on
U.S. TV) on “New Revolutional Diagnostic Method, Bi-Digital O-Ring
Test” A copy of this documentary with English translation was
submitted to the U.S. Patent Office in early 1993. Eventually, on
February, 23, 1993, the Official Gazette of the U.S. Patent &
Trademark Office published a summary of the patent as universally
acceptable intellectual property.
the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, and spreading it throughout the world,
through well-trained, qualified members of the International
Bi-Digital O-Ring Test Association, it is my dream to reduce
unnecessary medical expenses, as well as human pain and suffering,
and thus be able to create peace and happiness by contributing to
individual health, as well as to the health care systems of all the
nations of the world.
