Shigeaki Yamamoto, M.D. O-Ring Test Clinic, Chikamori Hospital, Kochi, Japan

<Objective> We examined whether a time lag is necessary or not between taking two kinds of drugs in the combination therapy, moreover which drug is better to take first, using the Bi-Digital 0-Ring Test (BDORT).

<Methods> The order of taking two drugs, antiviral agent (A) and circulatory improvement agent (B), was examined in a patient with sciatic neuralgia which had been intractable due to the infection of the virus and the local circulatory disturbance. The examination was made three separate times, namely, When A and B were taken at the same time, when A was taken earlier than B, and When A was taken later than B. The changes in the whole body and the region affected and the reactions to the resonance phenomenon with the drugs were checked every five minutes after the actual taking. However another way to predict the result of the drugs in the different orders was examined.

<Results> Taking A 10-15 minutes earlier than B showed the best result. The Drug compatibility Test of BDORT was performed before taking the drugs. When the examinee had both drugs, A and B, in his hand, slight differences were observed in the strength of the O-ring. When A was put on the hand before B, the O-Ring was stronger than when A was put on the hand after B. The condition of having taken A was simulated by putting the drug on the navel. Then putting B on the hand made the O-ring the strongest, showing a more obvious difference according to the change of the order. When the first drug (A) was put on the representation point of the small intestine (including navel) near the center of the palm, and the other drug (B) was put on the tip of the finger, the same result was obtained. As a more Practical method, holding the first drug (A) and pointing at the other drug (B), he examinee showed the same response in the O-Ring. In usual cases, When each drug was examined, the drug which had to be taken first made the 0-Ring stronger.

<Conclusion> More clinical results could be anticipated, When the main and curative drug was taken first and the assistant and symptomatic drug Was taken 10-15 minutes later. To predict the effects in different orders, the examinee was tested by holding the first drug and pointing at the other drug.

SHINODA General Hospital, Yamagata

?Purpose? Kampo and BRM were indicated for a high risk patient of cancer.

?Methods? An a symptomatic 36 year-old male dentist seemed to be infected with Cytomegalovirus and Herpes simplex Type 1 in the right thymus by O-Ring test. In addition, Integrina5b1, Oncogene c-fosAB2, Thromboxan B2 and Hg increased in the right bronchus and in the rectum. Acetylcholine slightly decreased in both areas. Effective therapy was tested and given by 0-ring test.

?Results?As Kakkonto and Keishibukuryogan Were effective for viral infection, they were given for two weeks. BCG, OK432 and some Kampo medicines were mildly effective for the bronchial and the rectal abnormalities. Combinations of them were more effective. As the most effective Kampo was combination of Juzentaihoto and Keishibukuryogan, they were given for the following days. In addition to Kampo, the most effective dose of BCG was 0.5mg. 0.5 and 1KE of OK432 Was effective from 12 to 17 days after intradermal inoculation of BCG. The optimal day and the dose of the first intradermal OK432 administration were 14 days after BCG inoculation and 0.5KE, respectively. The optimal day and the optimal dose of following OK432 administration were 7 days after the previous administration of 0K432 and 0.5KE, respectively. OK432 was given intradermaly four times. Finally, Integrina5b1 , Oncogene c-fos AB2 and TXB2 disappeared in two months.

?Conclusion? Combination of some Kampo medicines, BCG and OK432 is effective for high risk of cancer patient.

<Objective> The record drought in Japan caused a serious shortage of water in 1994. The most extreme situation occurred in Matsuyama City. The dam dried up and the water supply was cut off from 8 to 19 hours a day for four months in succession. The exceptional situation made us apprehensive for the safety of the drinking water, because the water in the bottom of the dam, which is unfit for drinking, was being used. We examined the Water using the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test. For confirmation of the results, the examination provided in the Water Works Law was executed.

?Subjects? (A) The first 1L of water drawn immediately after the 19-hour suspension of the water supply was obtained from a tap of a common house supplied through the vinyl chloride tube from the water service of Matsuyama City on Sep. 20, 1994, which was the 31st day after the 19-hour suspension of water started and was the 50th day after the limitation of water started. (B) Water after approximately 200 L had run out of the same tap. (C) Water supplied from the water service of Kochi City, which did not cut off the supply. (D) Distilled water.

<Methods> The "Drug & Food Compatibility Test" was performed for each 150 ml samples. The presence of heavy metals or toxic substances was examined with the gBDORT Molecular Identification Method h: the reactions to the resonance phenomenon were checked with each sample as a reference control substance. Those samples were sent to the Corporation of Kochi prefecture Food Evaluation Center, and the examination of the water was executed following the Water Works Law.

<Results> The gDrug & Food Compatibility Testh showed harmful reactions in A and B: A made a more harmful reaction than B. The Molecular Identification Method gshowed the reactions to resonance: A>B>C with trihalomethane; A>B with lead (Pb); A>B with iron (Fe). The examination following the law detected the following: trihalomethane in A>B>C; high average of Fe in A and B. Pb was not found because of the low sensitivity.

<Conclusion> There were correlations between the results of the BDORT and the examination of the water following the legal test. The BDORT was a practical and useful way to judge promptly and easily whether water was safe to drink. It was suggested that after cutting off the water supply for a long period of time, the first water be used for washing etc. After the water had been running a while it seemed safer to drink.

SELECTION AND DOSE OF CHINESE MEDICINE BY USING BI-DIGITAL O-RING TEST

Harutoshi Hashizume

[PURPOSE] In prescribing Chinese medicine, conventional methods of making diagnosis have been used. But it is not easy to be skilled in each of the methods. Blending is even more difficult.

[METHOD] Put twelve different color felt cloths, which react against each keiraku (meridian) when anything unusual is found with karakul as disease onto the palm and up to the upper arm of a patient's left hand. Consider keiraku unusual when felt cloths give BD-ORT (-) on the right hand. By putting different kinds and quantities onto the left hand of the patient, select the medicine (from prescription chart by keiraku in Rinsho Toyo Igaku Genron by Tadashi Irie) and decide the dose witch gave BD-ORT (+) in the test conducted on the focus. In doing so, I found both blending and adjustment of quantity easy. In the process, I moved the test spots from deeper to shallow keiraku (HC-KI-LV-HT-SP-LU-TH-GB-ST-LI-SI-BL). I also let the patient cover his medulla oblongata with (+) Qigong energy stored paper so that the medicine will reach focuses. [OBJECT] CASE 1: Male. 72. Suffer from Parkinsonfs disease. Started treatment from November 2 1994. CASE 2: Male. 40. Suffer from depression. Started treatment from November 16 1993.

[RESULTS] CASE 1 :Improvement is seen in ADL and dementia (video available). CASE 2: The patient returned to work from April 1994. He is now able to cope with 80-90% of the amount of work he used to deal with. (No symptom of depression can be recognized.)

[CONCLUSION] By using Chinese medicine {which gave BO/ORT (+)} and (+) Qigong energy stored paper, in case 1 and case 2, bacteria, virus and mercury, which had been found in focuses, have disappeared. In return, acetylcholine and dopamine have appeared. I believe that this method of making diagnosis is simpler and accurate when compared with conventional ways for selecting Chinese medicine.

Concerning the use of the Bi-Digital 0-Ring Test in identifying the affected area and the pattern of the disease , and determining which method of Acupuncture-Moxibustion meridian treatment to employ.

Kazuhisa Iwamoto

Iwamoto Acupuncture-Moxibustion Clinic

?Purpose?Long ago the Way of determining the method of treatment consisted of the complicated four-fold process of examination, auscultation and olfaction, interrogation, and palpation, each stage of which had to be completed in turn before a decision could be reached. The diagnostic skills of the practitioner of the yin/Yang-five elements theory, particularly those based on palpation, were such that it was considered necessary for him to be possessed of unusual talent. The following will examine the process by which the pattern of a disease can be established based on the Yin/Yang-five elements theory and using the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test.

?Object of study?Patients seen between August 1994 and March 1995.

?Methods?Diagnosis based on the combination of upper-lower point in relation to both ???S12?s:

Openings of the left-hand ??fs O-ring?Yang?Disorder located in arm.

Openings Of the right-hand ??fs O-ring?Yin?Disorder located in leg.

Diagnosis based on the combination of left-right point in relation to both???L1?s:

Opening of the left-hand ??fs O-ring?Yin?Disorder located in left arm/right leg.

Opening of the right-hand ??fs O-ring?Yang?Disorder located in right arm/left leg.

Coldness and heat (deficiency and excess) diagnosis

Determine which of the??(RM7)(fire) and ??(RM7)(water)O-rings opens.

??-= evidence of Yang meridian excess

?? = evidence of Yin meridian deficiency

Having thus established the location of the disorder on the basis of the data gained from both ??s and both ??s , use the 0-ring to establish which of the Yin meridians is deficient or which of the Yang meridians is in excess.

?Results?Based on the methods discussed here, the combination of points (those necessary for treatment of the patients' condition) can be determined in a way that all at once seems like a matter of course. After the according acupuncture treatment, patients' disorders were seen to improve or disappear.

?Conclusion?Decisions relating to acupuncture-moxibustion (location of the disorder, judgment of symptoms) depend to a large degree on the practioner's gut feelings. Because of this it has been considered difficult for fellow practitioners to discuss case studies. However by using the methods discussed here it is possible to engage in the mutual discussion of case studies. At the same time, by means of the Bi-Digital 0-Ring Test now in use, a common understanding of decision-making -from diagnosis to treatment to prognosis -is able to be confirmed.

The authors attempted to localize Spleen Meridian and its acupuncture points using the gBi-Digital O-Ring Test (BDORT) Imaging Technique.hAs Dr. Yoshiaki Omura indicated, we used a microscopic Slide of the pancreas for resonance. We also tried to learn the depth and the structure of SP6, also called gSanyinjiaoh (g???hor gSan-in-Koh), which means the crossing point of three meridians, gSpleen Meridian", ''Liver Meridian'', and ''Kidney Meridian". A total of 13 healthy male and female subjects aged between 19 and 63 were selected. Using the gBDORT Molecular Identification Method'', the pancreatic representation area in the brain was also identified with insulin as a reference control substance as well as a microscopic slide of the pancreas. In order to detect the depth of SP6 a electro acupuncture needle which is only electro-conductive on its tip was used during the indirect BDORT through a third person. Three layers of representation areas of gSpleen Meridian", gLiver Meridian", and gKidney Meridian" could be differentiated with corresponding microscopic slides of the pancreas, liver, and kidney. We were able to image the general pattern of gSpleen Meridianh described in the literature of ancient Chinese medicine. In addition we found the three-layer structure of SP6 from the surface down to be in the order of gSpleen Meridian", gLiver Meridianh, and. gKidney Meridian".

*Kochi Oriental Medicine 0-Ring Test Research Society, Japan ** O-Ring Test Clinic, Chikamori Hospital, Kochi, Japan

?Purpose?The Bi-Digital 0-Ring Test (BDORT) on the injured region of a patient convalescing from a sport injury was performed before, during, and after the concrete movements of the sport.

?Case?A 33-year-old woman who had sprained her knee while jumping in a Volleyball game two months before.

?Methods?An electrode for ECG was put on the injured region. In electro-conductive line was connected with the electrode. A third person held the other end of the line in his hand. The indirect BDORT was performed with an electro-magnetic field conducted from the injured region through the line. The examination was made not only when she was at rest but also in various positions. Moreover we examined her condition when she was making some concrete movements used in volleyball and the recovering process after the motion. We observed not only the dysfunction but also a resonance phenomenon with Substance P and Oncogene C-fos Ab-1, as pain associated substances, and Thromboxane B2 as an index or circulatory disturbance. As a control, we examined her curs and the unaffected side of the knee.

?Results?We hardly round any changes while she was sitting down or just standing up. Some transient disorders were round in the affected region according to the stress produced by the movements or playing volleyball, serving, receiving, spiking, etc. The longest change lasted 11 seconds after the motion depending on the level of stress, some disorders were also round in the unaffected knee: the change was smaller than in the affected side, and lasted less than 4 seconds. Oncogene C-fos Ab-1 was less liable to appear than Substance P under weak stress. No change was found in the curs.

?Conclusion?After an electro-magnetic field was conducted from the injured region through a line to a third person, the BDORT, performed before, during, and after, the patient made movements used in the sport, gave a precise evaluation as to when the patient could safely resume playing the sport.

*Kochi Veterinary Medicine 0-Ring Test Research Society** Bi-Digital O-Ring Test Clinic, Chikamori Hospital, Kochi, Japan

?Objective?The number or cats with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection and feline leukemia virus (FeLV) infection is increasing, also in Kochi City. We tried to diagnose these infections with the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (BDORT).

?Methods?Spots on the membrane of purified and inactivated antigens of FIV and anti?FeLV core protein p27 monoclonal antibodies were selectively cut out from the reaction film used for the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit which is able to detect anti-FIV antibodies and FeLV antigen with the ELISA method. They were used as the reference control substances for resonance phenomenon with the gBDORT Molecular Identification Methodh.

?Results?Case 1. A one-year-old crossbred female cat (negative FIV and positive FeLV in ELISA). The indirect BDORT was performed with transmitted molecular information from the cat along a sort laser beam. Reaction to the resonance phenomenon with FeLV was observed in the representation point of the whole body which is in the middle of the forehead. Reactions were also found in portions of the swelling submandibular lymph node, the tail, and the trunk.

Case 2. A two-and-a-half-year old castrated Japanese male cat. The whole blood was examined with the indirect BDORT. No reaction was observed with FIV, but a resonance reaction was observed with FeLV. These findings corresponded with the results of the ELISA.

Case 3 Crossbred male cat of unknown age. The whole blood showed resonance reactions with both FIV and FeLV. These findings corresponded with the results of the ELISA. The resonance reaction with body FIV and FeLV were observed in the representation points of the whole body, the liver, the spleen, and the thymus gland. And a resonance reaction with FIV was observed in the kidney.

?Conclusion?The preparation and use of samples of FIV antigens and anti-FeLV antibodies made it possible to screen for these infectious diseases and to make precise diagnosis in each organ.

ANTIBIOTIC MEDICATION FOR CACES WITH LIMITED MOUTH OPENING

Katsutoshi Hori Hori Dental Clinic

I report excellent cases in which I limited mouth opening was treated successfully by antibiotic medication using the Bi?Digital O-Ring Test. Three patients came to our clinic with limited mouth opening and temporomandibular joint(TMJ) pain from June to December 1994. On the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test, bacterial infection was suspected around the TMJ region and the submandibular triangle region. It was suggested that the submandibular triangle region corresponded to the tonsils in the manifestation of etiology. By Yamamotofs method, the tonsillitis was detected as primary cause and the TMJ dysfunction was secondary. Antibiotics were selected and dosed out by the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test. At the same time, the acupuncture points of the tonsils in the ears were found out and stimulated by needles and soft lasers to increase drug uptake. In all the cases, the symptoms resolved in a few days. On CMS (Computerized Mandibular Scan), the range of opening mouth and the motion velocity increased. Limited mouth opening and TMJ pain are major clinical symptoms of TMJ disorder. Though bacterial infection of the TMJ is not usually considered as the cause of TMJ disorder, antibiotic medication with the stimulation of acupuncture point of the tonsils in the ears vas very effective for our cases that were clinically suspected of TMJ disorder.

(Fukuoka Dental Clinic and Research Laboratory of Oriental Medicine)

[Purpose] In recent years the third most common ailment treated by dentists is TMJ arthrosis, incidents or which are increasing year by year, and this ailment is considered to have multiple causes. In diagnosis of TMJ arthrosis it is important to determine the disease conditions in the head or the mandible, articular disk, and lateral pterygoid muscle, in terms of positional abnormalities and organic changes. Here we examined the potential applications of the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (ORT) with the imaging method in diagnosing the condition of the TMJ.

[Method] We had test subjects carry out Imaging in the TMJ region, and using a panorama revolving type X-ray apparatus took 4 sectional X-rays of the TMJ with Panorama FW.XP-29. In order to compare the X-rays we obtained with the results gained using data from the head of the mandible, articular disk, and lateral pterygoid muscle areas. In addition, we performed similar tests on the TMJ location or a cadaver, and compared the results we obtained on the target surface under the same standards.

[Results] Positional comparisons in the X-ray trace images revealed a general morphological correspondence in the lower jaw, but the results from imaging were ambiguous in part or the head of the mandible. As for the tests performed on the same TMJ location of the cadaver, there was no enlarging tendency found in each tract, however there was such a tendency found in other organs with imaging, projected particularly in the upper area.

[Conclusions] This research demonstrated that BDORT imaging can be of some help in medical examination of the TMJ.

The Possible Effects of Metallic Materials Used in Dentistry Which Possess Magnetic Properties, As Shown by the Bi-Digital O-Ring Test

Research by: Yuko KOYAMA, Tanekuni NOMOTO Hiroshj FUKUOKA, Akira FUKUOKA, Hidetoshi HIRABAYASHI (Fukuoka Dental Clinic and Research Laboratory of Oriental Medicine )

[Purpose] Using ORT we examined the possible effects of metallic materials employed in dentistry with elements that produce an MRI artifact, such as Co, Ni, Cr, Fe, and Mo.

[Method] For patients who have a metal bond crown (MBC). we tested by having the tip of the tongue come into contact with the exposed portion or the MBC or the ceramic caps; with an MBC installed tooth or remote tooth; and with an MBC which has been insulated with gauze or cotton swab. Each or these cases were tested with a double-blind diagnostic method using several indices, including the thymus gland representative area, organ representative area, and source points and drugs indicated. We also looked at conditions in the mouth as affected by metals with magnetic properties like titanium in attachment implants for securing artificial teeth.

[Results] (1) When the tip or back or the tongue came into contact with a Co-Cr compound metal-based artificial tooth, ORT values that had registered -4 all registered + 3 to +4. (2) When the tip of the tongue contacted gingival located close to an exposed metal portion of an MBC or a capped tooth area, ORT value or -4 all registered +3 to +4.(3) When these parts touched the edge of the tongue no significant change was registered in ORT, (4) except for certain limited arias where the sides of the tongue came into contact with the such metals. (5) When gauze and cotton swabs were used to insulate exposed edgees, no changes were observed with ORT. (6) When an attachment with magnetic properties used in the magnetic prosthesis came into contact with the tip of the tongue, the ORT values changed from -4 to +4.

[Conclusion] Changes in ORT values demonstrated that metallic materials with magnetic properties used in a patient's mouth should be considered in performing dental work.

Research by: Akira FUKUOKA, Tanekuni NOMOTO, Yuko KOYAMA, Hiroshi FUKUOKA

(Fukuoka Dental Clinic and Research Laboratory of Oriental Medicine)

[Purpose] This research reports on the application of Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (ORT) to accelerate recovery using the mind and body connection. ORT is used to draw inferences on the patientfs body condition, enabling detection of the presence or bacterial or viral infections, accumulations of heavy metals in body tissues, as well as the flow or ki-ketsu (blood and Qi energy). It demonstrates to the patient how such affected areas decrease in size over the progress of treatment, and encourages the patient's participation through accurate imaging of the healing process, speeding the road to recovery.

[Applied Cases] Symptoms of TMJ arthrosis, facial paralysis, trigeminal neuralgia, glossodynia, chronic facial or neck pain.

[Method and Results] The imaging method with ORT was used with various samples including viruses, heavy metals, TXB2, and Substance P. Using ORT resonances obtained with each sample, we were able to detect and outline the surface area or infections and tissue accumulations, and carry out treatments using drugs and food prescriptions, as well as acupuncture and moxibustion treatments. Patients also formed clear mental images of recovery. Polaroid photos were taken for each session, documenting the results to patients by showing the progressively shrinking size of affected areas after treatment, which encouraged the natural process of healing.

[Conclusion] The results showed that ORT is use fill in understanding dental patientsf body condition and illness, and for prescribing the appropriate medicine. Supplemented by the imaging method, it was effective in giving patients clear and encouraging evidence of rapid recovery.

TREATMENT WITH PURIFIED PROPOLIS POWDER (HEALTH CARE FOOD) AGAINST HUHAN MALIGNANT TUMORS

Yasuhiro Shimotuura M.D., F.I.C.A.E

ORT Life Science Research Institute

The honeybee hive product propolis made by nixing plant resin with bee wax, bee saliva. etc., possesses various pharmacological activities. The use of propolis dates back to ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. And in Eastern Europe it has been used as folk medicine for many years. The Bi-Digital O-Ring Test (BDORT) by contrast, would appear to be a more recent discovery. The BDORT can be used to detect the presence of malignant neoplasia in the human body more efficiently than other diagnostic methods such as CT scanning, the fiber scope, and immunological and biochemical tests because it is more sensitive than all of others. The author has administered orally the purified propolis powder (health care food supplied by Hayashibara Biochemical Labs.) every day, prepared by nixing ethanol-extracted propolis with anhydrous maltose, to patients who were found positive for malignant tumor only by the BDORT but negative by other authorized diagnostic tests mentioned as the above, and also to others who were positive for malignant tumor by BDORT and other tests and were waiting for surgical treatment (more than 50 cases). The optimal dose of propolis powder for each patient was determined by BDORT and adjusted frequently due to individual variation. The regression or disappearance of tumors were found clearly in almost all types of patients after two weeks to six months. No side effects have been observed yet.

Propolis, beeglue obtained from bee hives, is known as a home-made remedy against infectious diseases because of its anti-microbial and antiviral effects. We prepared propolis powder adsorbed to anhydrous maltose to facilitate its solubility. This propolis powder has BRM-like effects such as macrophage activation and inhibition or experimental tumor metastases. Recently, a single low molecular weight compound that has strong anti-microbial activity has been purified and identified from Brazilian propolis. The purpose or this investigation was to examine the anti tumor activity of this new component. This component dose-dependently inhibited the in vitro growth of several human and animal tumor cell lines. Anti tumor effects were also observed in an animal cancer model by the intra tumor administration or this component. Histopathologically, large areas or necrosis and tumor cell death were observed in the tumor tissue. Our Propolis powder. containing this component that has anti tumor potential, may be useful in human health.
