What does LSM Resonance Testing involve?
During LSM Resonance Testing, the subject removes shoes and jewellery and then, fully clothed, lies on the back with the feet hanging off the end of the LSM practitioner’s test table. Gently placing his or her hands onto the patient’s ankles/top of the feet, the LSM practitioner then spends typically 15 to 60 minutes (depending on the complexity of the case, the practitioner and the context) assessing an involuntary muscle response to a series of hundreds of test vials.
This muscle testing procedure is a particular type of applied kinesiology referred to as “non-force” because the patient does not need to resist any force, nor does the practitioner need to apply any force, making it an objective form of muscle testing.
Each test vial is placed on a stand-alone test platform which is connected via a cable to a metal bar which the patient holds. It is a completely safe and non-invasive form of evaluation which focuses on scanning the biofields of the internal organs and tissues, the biofields of pernicious fields found to be impacting them, and prioritising among these to create a treatment plan.
No electrical machines are used in LSM Resonance Testing. Machines are used in other forms of bioresonance testing, but we do not do so because we get better outcomes by not using a machine.
What we refer to in Living Systems Medicine as “the resonance principle” has nothing inherently to do with machines, but simply relates to a correspondence between the body field response of the patient and the nature of the test vial or fields it has just been exposed to in the testing flow.
An example of the resonance principle in action
The following illustrative example will help to explain what the resonance principle, which underlies LSM Resonance Testing, is.
As an LSM practitioner, when I am using, say, the Lung test vial to assess the information fields of the patient’s lungs, if the two are in harmony (resonance) then a problem won’t be found, but where a problem exists in the patient’s lung field there will instead be a mismatch (dissonance) that is then detected at the ankles in the muscle test that we use in LSM. In other words, the relatively healthy lung field of the test vial is not similar enough to the patient’s lung field to get a correspondence – because the patient’s lung field is less relatively healthy at the moment of testing. Think of this “dissonance” effect as being like a guitar string that is out of tune.
Next, whilst I keep the Lung vial on the test plate, I could also see if there are other vials which restore resonance where there was dissonance, and in this way I can explore what types of resonances are preventing the biofields of the patient’s lungs from being in a normal state of harmony.
Through a long series of responses of either resonance or dissonance, as we go through hundreds of test vials, we build up a cumulative picture of the results, and use systems science algorithms to sort through them as we go and establish priorities.
The key to the whole process lies in the moves and steps of the testing sequence itself, which are taught on our courses and are based on the LSM concept of The 5 Key Organ Systems.
Based on the priorities that have been established during the test, a resonance treatment sequence is constructed during the test itself, which is a wonderful boon because this means that as soon as the test is complete, you already have not only the results but also a treatment plan based on them!
Can LSM Resonance Testing be used for testing heavy metals / radiation poisoning / Lyme disease / parasites / infections / how much mercury I have / etc.?
LSM Resonance Testing is not a form of medical diagnosis in the conventional sense. Instead, it allows a comprehensive assessment of the biofields of hundreds of internal organs and tissues using prioritisation algorithms that are based on systems science.
Therefore, the test results are based on what is highest priority, not on questions such as “how much mercury do I have?” or “do I have Lyme disease?” In Living Systems Medicine, priorities at the level of different organs as well as the whole system are considered to be a much more meaningful question – which is more important for the general health and wellness of the person – than the specific levels or presence of any particular pathogen or toxin.
To illustrate this with an example: imagine that Person A (let’s call him Bob) has a tiny amount of mercury in his hypothalamus, whereas Person B (let’s call him Tom) has 50 times more mercury but located in his shins. In LSM we would be much more interested in Bob’s mercury than Tom’s, even though it is 50 times less in quantity. This is because the hypothalamus is an extremely important regulatory zone of the brain which has major impact on the health of the whole system – whereas the shins are much less influential on the rest of the body. Therefore, LSM Resonance Testing is designed not to find out if a particular thing is present or in what quantity, but to assess the clinical priority of the biofields of different influences on the biofields of the body and its organs and tissues.
Does LSM Resonance Testing evaluate actual toxins and infections in the actual organs of the body, or does it just evaluate the information fields of them and not the actual things?
First it is worth noting that mainstream medical authorities do not recognise LSM Resonance Testing, nor Bioresonance Testing generally, as a validated medical method. In any case it is not used in LSM for diagnosis in a medical sense, but is instead used as a general wellness tool which is focused on a type of biofields that we refer to as “information fields”.
Legally and medically speaking, the information fields of our organs and tissues, and of pernicious factors affecting them such as toxins and infections, are not recognised as existing based on current medical standards in conventional medicine.
For this reason, whenever we refer to an organ or a pernicious factor in the context of LSM Resonance Testing and LSM Resonance Remedies, it is not “medicine” in the recognised sense – it is a Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) approach based on a different set of ideas.
However, we in LSM draw from sciences outside of medicine such as modern physics and base our model on these, even though conventional medicine is in our view still mistakenly based on an outdated nineteenth century “cogs and wheels” materialistic view of physics.
As most of us know, physics underwent a massive transformation during the early to mid twentieth century, after the work of Albert Einstein and then, after him, the development of quantum physics, information theory and other modern fields of physics. Yet, with a few notable exceptions such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) testing, modern conventional medicine is still largely practised today as though none of that happened! (And even then, tools like MRI testing are still based in essence on the old pre-Einstein physics, as electromagnetism was first defined in the nineteenth century. Whereas MRI evaluates magnetic energy fields, LSM Resonance Testing is based instead on information fields – an entirely different domain of physics).
In other words, modern medicine is still hung up on thinking of almost everything in terms of a “nuts and bolts” chemistry paradigm. As the saying goes, if the only tool you have is a hammer, then everything starts looking like a nail. Our proposition in LSM, though, is that there are screws and other types of sharp objects besides nails, and that these have already been long recognised in other fields yet not yet in carpentry. It is as though the news is spreading extremely slowly to carpenters. (Why are these carpenters so behind the times?) And by “extremely slowly”, I mean over a century later and it is still as though the developments in physics of the last century never happened.
Even after incorporating modern physics into the scientific background of LSM, though, we cannot necessarily assume that our test findings in relation to the information fields of something are identical to the “actual” something. We take a view in LSM that they are related, and usually overlap, but at the same time it is prudent to remember that it is not necessarily the case and there may be cases where there are differences.
For instance, through a concept known as the Law of Similars we know that we do not need to identify or use the identical information fields, in our testing and remedies, as those in the “actual” patient’s body. This highlights an important principle of LSM Resonance – both in the testing and in the remedies: the whole process has been designed with a pragmatic purpose in mind, based on decision science. Namely, the objective is to establish clinical priorities of treatment, and so the test process has been designed with this aim in mind.
It is like encountering an elderly lady who has fallen down on the road and needs a hand up. The situation calls for practical action based on deciding what to do next – in a series of steps – and in this case holding out your hand to the old lady will be the first step. As a part of the steps we take, we will also want to help her find out why she fell, so we can help her prevent future falls. However, the point is that we don’t walk down the road taking random photos of every passer-by simply to observe and document all of their movements all day long. This would lead us to fritter away our time on frivolous activity. We are called to action when there is a problem, or a potential problem, and LSM is a problem-solving system.
This is why LSM Resonance Testing is designed to establish priorities of treatment, as leverage points to general wellness, rather than simply to document a random series of findings. Consider that the street on which this imaginary old lady fell down is only one of thousands of streets, and if you spend all of your time randomly documenting the passers-by on one street, you won’t be there on other streets to bring your skills to bear where help is needed. This captures why prioritisation is important in LSM Resonance Testing, and how this draws from systems science which provides us the tools to know which organs (streets) need our attention first, and in what sequence, and in relation to what problems.
The Meaning/Measurement Duality Problem
This also means that LSM Resonance Testing is a “future-driven” activity. That is to say, everything starts from the question: “what steps do we need to take, to help this living system self-manage more intelligently?” We then work backwards from there, which enables us to navigate a vast sea of potential information with a compass.
It is for the same reason that systems science is based primarily on the study of meaningful patterns, rather than accurate numerical measurement.
These are often two competing objectives, which force us to prioritise between them.
Let’s call this The Meaning/Measurement Duality Problem!
There, you see, I’ve given it a name – so we can remember it! It means that in living systems (remember that in nonliving systems, such as the engineering of bridges and aeroplanes, this does not apply!) the more accurately we seek to measure something numerically, the less meaningful it becomes; and that the more we focus on what is meaningful in living systems, the less we will be focused on accurate numerical measurement!
Let’s face it, this principle flies in the face of modern science and medicine – but that is simply because systems science has outgrown both of them.
