When you look at my article on biophysics, you'll understand that we're addressing "quantum fields" that instruct the body on how to build and maintain itself. So when we're talking about quantum scans, we're talking about any kind of technology that assesses these fields so a practitioner can then take whatever approach is needed to correct them.
I'll point out that therapies like esoteric healing make intuitive assessments of this field (as well as mental, emotional, and perhaps spiritual layers), but I'm referring here to technology-based scans.
Even though several systems out there appear to make quantum assessments, from my experience you have a few different types of scans, and it's worth knowing what is what.
Some scans claim they can scan you from anywhere based on inputting your name and perhaps some other information. I've heard it said that they claim to reach out based on that information and "find" you in the universe to make an assessment. Sounds to me like they generate information either randomly or based on numerology or something along those lines. If they're not scanning a field, you also run the risk of them being able to show you "getting better" over time because they know it's you when your profile is opened in the future and you're scanned again, giving you a false reason to keep working with this practitioner. As you can tell, I'm not a fan of this approach.
I think "getting better" ought to be assessed by how you feel except when you're going through an initial cleansing or "retracing" period (I'll explain this in an article later) or when you're covering up symptoms with drugs.
Meridian Point Testing
Some scans are done with "point testing," where a probe is placed against different meridian points and a computer assessment is made as to its vitality or balance. I used to own the top of the line equipment (BioMeridian MSAS Professional) and frankly believe that there IS scientific validity to it, but that there are some serious considerations for the practitioner, such as:
* Testing depends on the practitioner's skill rather than a scan anyone could get. Some retesting is done on a point when a reading looks suspicious -- possibly leading to biased results (who decides what is suspicious?)
* Point tests can hurt a bit, especially on children with small fingers and toes.
* A thorough test takes time, ideally including hands and feet, and many people do not want to take off socks and show their feet; practitioners have to deal with feet (some stinky).
* Retesting with remedies tests only those points that were previously thrown off, to see if they come back into balance. Balanced points are not tested to see if they're thrown off.
* The fact that it only tests the meridians when I believe the quantum fields go beyond this means that I think it's too partial.
Galvanic Skin Response
Some scans use galvanic skin response. This has to do with an electrical signal traveling through the skin. While this tests an electrical aspect of the body (quantum in this regard), it is not testing a quantum field. (You couldn't, for instance, hold your hand slightly above the device and get a reading.) Again, I think there is validity to this concept in some regards, such as with testing for body fat. But the "scans" I've seen ask "questions" of the body and then send a signal to get either a balanced of "stressed" response. These questions seem to be programmed with intention, and apparently the computer is able to turn around and ask the same question to the body with intention. You can even add questions to the database (with your own intention) or add new supplements for testing by simply placing them next to a device. Somehow the input device ignores the bottle or other container and just focuses on the supplement? Sounds like intention again.
I'm not against intention, and believe in ... well, the power of belief. But this doesn't seem like an objective kind of approach, so I don't see it as the future of medicine. What's more, when I owned a device like this (Zyto LSA Pro), I was able to manipulate results at will based on when I adjusted the position of my hand on the reading device. I also input an unhealthy "supplement" (Starbucks "DoubleShot" canned drink) and the software was happy to say that this would balance me and make me healthy.
On an extra note, I don't believe non-medical practitioners should use disease names in their practice, except when asking clients what they've been diagnosed with by a doctor and how they're being treated (what medicine they're taking for instance). The Zyto and other devices test for diseases. They may not claim to diagnose you with them (may simply say your body is responding with stress when asked about that disease), but this is a thin line to walk, especially with clients who often misinterpret their readings and seldom hear everything they're being told.
Quantum Field Scanning
I'm only aware of the NES Provision falling into this category, but would love knowing that others are advancing this field of research as well. Here you get a scan of an actual field that penetrates and extends from the body. The hand device you use for the scan can actually pick up your field as you approach it. Sometimes you have to come within a millimeter or two, but it certainly proves that it's not just an electrical scan. It knows that some sort of FIELD is there.
NES does not diagnose any disease, nor does it assess physical body parts. But it does assess the fields so strongly associated with certain body parts that they get names like "Bone Field," etc. Having said that, the bone field isn't just about the bones themselves. This field has to do with maturing certain blood cells, use of calcium in the body, etc. While ANYONE will get the same reading of a client, you can get better and better over time in understanding the readout and knowing the best approach to recommending remedies.
This scan is NOT repeatable (nor are several of the others), and I have seen people online saying negative things about it for this reason. Let me say a word about that: 1) many medical tests are NOT repeatable, nor are they very accurate. It's pretty funny how much credibility we give them and how high a standard we think they hold, and then we turn around on something like this and disregard it despite its excellent results. 2) In my opinion, it IS repeatable. Eh? You will not get the same results with each scan because there are many factors that go into the state of your "fields"; but a qualified practitioner will see consistent patterns revolving around problem areas for their clients. When you know what you're looking at, this becomes an astonishing assessment tool.
A Final Note
Let's put my bias into perspective and leave you with the most important bottom line. I had a financial incentive for all of the devices I bought to work. I didn't want to have to buy more devices, and I wanted to earn my money back after buying them. But the only one I felt comfortable charging people for, based on the quality of the scan, was the NES Provision. If I could speak more highly of the BioMeridian or Zyto, I would. I am no longer offering my services, so I don't have a financial incentive to convince you either way.
Still, I will admit that the true bottom line is how well a practitioner can help someone with a scan. Beautiful scan results -- even if I don't think they're accurate -- might give someone the right incentive to change their lifestyle. A qualified practitioner might know what to give someone even without the scan, using the scan to help with client adherence to a protocol. Whatever works ... works. I just haven't seen reason for faith in most of the devices themselves.
