Professor Yingqing Zhang of Shandong University discovered through an experiment why and how acupuncture points are distributed throughout the body.
He took a young mouse embryo before the tissue differentiated into the three embryonic tissues. He then cut it into five pieces and implanted the five pieces into a mouse's uterus. Five identical mice were born.
When the body begins to form, every new organ, limb, and section of a limb (calf, thigh, foot, etc.) begins forming through the same process as the original embryo.
Professor Yingqing Zhang discovered that every one of these parts or ECIWOs has the information to form a whole new body.
In the lower animals this new limb bud can be excised and grow a new complete animal.
However, under the control of the main body, the tissue forms into the intended organ or limb. Therefore, every organ, limb section, nose, ear and the brain contains the information of the whole organism. These are all called ECIWO's (Embryo Contains the Information of the Whole Organism).
Every ECIWO, including the brain, has a potential stomach, legs, arms, and every other part of the body. These tiny structures can be seen under a microscope and their purpose still mystifies histologists.
These potential organs are the acupressure points. When the stomach is not well, every stomach point on every ECIWO becomes tender and sore.
This is called the bio-holographic law. It easily explains why acupuncture, reflexology, shiatsu, iridology, tongue and pulse diagnosis and many more modalities work.
Stimulating these points with rubbing (acupressure), needles (acupuncture), or with electrical pulses causes the body to release antibodies, hormones, and certain proteins that bring about healing.
Dr. Ryke Hamer discovered these points in the brain independently of Prof. Yingqing Zhang. He found that these points in the brain swell when there is an emotional conflict. The swelling can be seen on CT scans.
Emotional conflicts effect our brain, body, and health. By mapping these brain swellings, or edemas, one can get an idea what the conflict is that is creating health and emotional discomfort.
