General scientific knowledge is not enough to figure out what to do for your health, and most medical thinking is limited by this model of science.
Lab tests are partial measurements of your existing status and cannot test into the future what specific solutions are compatible with you. This is crucial since many supplements, for example, are junk that will weaken you even if they theoretically address a deficiency identified in a lab test.
To turn science into operational, actionable knowledge, engineering thinking is needed for root cause analysis and customized design of protocols in quantified detail.
Engineering thinking is also necessary to assure quality of implementation: following instructions, fine-tuning, and addressing new needs of a rapidly changing state of health, including adjusting for the inevitable uncomfortable spells of detoxification.
Usually nutrition is a root cause to address first. Every root cause variable must be considered for a complete solution since you are only as strong as your weakest link, whether it be a deficiency or excess.
1. What kind of diet should you be on?
Some people get better eating just fruit, others just beef, most are somewhere in the middle with many unique details. No existing theory explains all of the variations.
2. Excesses: carbs, meat, fat, minerals, etc.?
3. Deficiencies: minerals, vitamins, probiotics, sunlight, fat, protein, etc?
4. Timing: when you eat in the day or night and how long you stop eating can make a big difference for sleep, weight loss, etc.
5. Each food, supplement and method can be tested for whether it strengthens or weakens you, exact products and foods sources. Most supplement brands are not very biologically active and impure. You need to know the best in class brands and how to use food for most nutrients, not supplements.
6. Many things need to be quantified: exact product, quantity, timing and combinations can be crucial.
If these requirements of engineering thinking cannot be done with lab tests, then how?
The only kind of method to customize and quantify in detail is some form of energetic testing, which is not considered scientific, but it can work. I use muscle testing, even long distance with myself as a surrogate, to get yes or no answers that works long distance, too. Energetic testing works through the instinct of the autonomic nervous system of the person being tested. With long distance testing it also works through the person doing the testing or a surrogate, How it works long distance has to do with quantum fields of physics, but I won’t attempt to explain that here.
Many people dismiss energetic testing as non scientific, but compared to what? Science itself has become a religion with authority signaled by overwhelming people with technical detail—they must know what they are talking about if we don’t understand. The average person cannot sort out who knows what, or how relevant it is to their individual needs.
Most people are unaware of the scientific revolution advancing to a higher level though quality improvement or six sigma methods used by engineers and others. I earned a PhD in sociology explain how these methods reflected a deep paradigm change that was necessary to practice these methods successfully. These methods are the reason your car starts reliably and your computer works. I use Integral Theory to explain the higher levels of logic to fully make sense of quality improvement and the advantages of the Japanese cultural context of more successful implementation that provides deeper relational thinking to understand systems theory. Systems thinking is the key and the correction to a highly specialized and fragmented practice of science and medicine.
I first utilized this knowledge with the measurement instrument of my highly sensitive body because I could feel what was working. I can also feel the energy of a food or supplement I hold in my hand whether it is good or bad to take. In fact, I can feel the energy of something from a picture online. This is the sensitivity that expresses itself through my hand that makes the pendulum swing as yes or no. Many people refuse to believe this is possible, but this is why I have improved more than most. I’ve been through chronic fatigue from being 113 lbs at 5’9” when I was publicly declared to be a, “faggot dying of AIDS,” to healing my brain to solve problems at level of complexity not achieved before in three different fields of expertise, including the equally difficult challenge of writing in a way that is helpful to others.
The quality of energetic testing depends mainly on questions asked; methods alone make nothing happen. Questions asked are based on scientific understanding and especially with systems theory: how all the pieces fit together. An objective of systems thinking is to manage complexity in the simplest way possible so as to maintain focus on the most important things to be able to implement. The best focus is on the relatively few root causes instead of the many symptoms. There are 6 root causes I have defined elsewhere under 6 Root Causes of Chronic Fatigue. Usually people start with toxic exposures and nutrition, both chemistry and physics of each.
When people do not focus on the few root causes they get lost in chasing the many symptoms, which means they fail at implementation that requires attention to detail and adjustment. When that fails they return to the compulsion to shop for easy solutions that get implemented poorly and the cycle continues. This is a paradigm problem but no one wants to hear that because they are not shopping for paradigms that are hard to understand and require you do let go of things you think you know. People are shopping for supplements, technologies, general diets, etc, based on preexisting assumptions of what an answer looks like. They need to expand from isolated external transactions to internal transformation of how they make health decisions. Many people think they understand but don’t and just argue with me.
People generally do not understand the connections that constitute a system and how to focus within it on root causes because root causes and systems thinking are almost never been taught. The existing medical paradigm is based on fragmented science in which people get lost down rabbit holes of technical details in which it is difficult to keep track of the larger context of connections like how all the nutrients work together as cofactors..
Science needs analyzers and synthesizers. Practitioners, whether self-guided individuals or health providers, need to be synthesizers for complete solutions to address all the weak links that hold one back. Everyone knows that the individual matters, N=1, but many have nothing between the extremes of general scientific studies versus random trial and error, individual experimentation. Energetic testing can bridge this gap by evaluating many solutions from lists and narrow it down quickly to rate solutions on a scale of 1 to 10.
