Impact of the Chiren Device on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Dr. Martha Grout introduces us to this homeopathic treatment and electro-acupuncture

As children, when we are very small and helpless, we are often exposed to situations over which we have no control and are disturbing to us. A parent’s criticism, spoken at the wrong time in the wrong tone of voice, can have a devastating effect upon our image as competent and worthwhile human beings.

Watching as our mothers absorb physical blows and emotional wounds can be equally devastating. The fear, grief or anger can become lodged in our tissues, because we are too small and too young to do anything about the situation.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the best-known example of such an effect, sending sufferers diving to the ground years after a battle has been fought, shaking uncontrollably every time they drive on the freeway or having a disabling phobia about flying.

Our bodies are said to have cellular memory. When we have an experience that is particularly vivid—either traumatic or joyful—our brains set up a specific combination of neural impulses and neurotransmitters to encode the memory so that we won’t forget it. As adults, we generally remember details about the original incident, such as the intersection where we were broadsided or the place where we were assaulted.

However, if the situation occurred when we were small, we may not remember the specifics. We may have stashed the whole experience of fear, anxiety, anger and helplessness somewhere in our cellular structure. Those cells will remind us of that memory every time something happens that remotely resembles the original incident until we bring the issue to the surface and deal with it.

Cells do not speak in the way we normally think of as communication. But they do communicate; often through pain or dysfunction such as headache, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome or almost any physical symptom that we can imagine, depending on where the original trauma was stored.

Allopathic medicine has treatments for such dysfunctions: talk therapy and drugs. Neither is known to be especially successful in treating the cause of the problem, although either may alleviate some of the symptoms.

Homeopathic medicine has more effective treatments. The Chiren, a biophotonic device that is new to the energy medicine scene in the United States, is based on the principles of electro-acupuncture. The device measures electrical energy stored in specific places on the fingers and toes and relates these points to specific meridians and organ systems in the body. In that sense, it is somewhat similar to other bioelectrical impedance measurement devices currently on the market, such as the Biomeridian, the QXCI, the Ondamed, the Asyra, the Xyto and others.

The Chiren measures coherence of the signal emitted by the physical body. Healthy cells radiate coherent light, unhealthy cells radiate chaotic light. This radiation, termed ultraweak photon emission, is the subject of increasing of research published in the scientific literature.

The Chiren measures the frequencies of homeopathic remedies and the inverted frequencies of illnesses (nosodes), which it then uses to feed back to the body for healing. Because treatment is effected through fiber optic cables and glass rods, the higher frequencies associated with emotional disturbance can also be accessed and used, enabling restoration of the head-heart connection that is disrupted in so many people. Because no negative or incoherent signals are returned to the body, only positive coherent signals, no harm comes to the system from treatment.

Additional physical treatment may be required, such as vitamins and nutrients and detoxification, but once the issue is identified and released, the physical treatment becomes more rapidly effective and significantly easier to effect.

But even more important than the nature of the device is the nature of the treatment itself. The word “biontology”, which conveys the essence of the device, is a combination of the “bio”, meaning life, and “ontology”, meaning the branch of metaphysics that deals with the nature of being, resulting in a “wellness machine” that deals with the nature of being.
