Kooky Machine: ETASCAN (Updated 2014)

Author's edit October 2014: Now that I am a born again Christian, I cannot in good conscious keep this post as is on my blog. I have had to edit things out because I believe tests like these are New Age and/or in the very least leading people astray and into New Age treatments. When I had this done, I was amazed at how it was able to "read" things about me, but I truly believe there is a spiritual aspect to this test that is not compatible with Christianity.

I do not agree with this test now and I have had to repent for many of the things I did in my healing journey. I do not want to cause someone to stumble.

My journey begins when I went to Dr. Wagner's Nutri-Farmacy. I have written about him a few times on this blog. He's the first person to test my hair for metals and I found out that I had lead from my bath tub! The last time I was in, I was showing him my heavy metal challenge test results. He was pretty insistent about getting me to scan on this machine that supposedly measures some sort of frequency waves in the body. I am not exactly sure about it, but you can read about it on his website in PDF here. This wasn't him out to make a buck because he has given me stuff for free and discounted many many times. He is a very charitable man.

I decided to schedule an appointment to use the machine--why not? I went into this appointment with a smirk on my face. Part of me wanted to see the machine say I had a tumor on my nose, so that I could laugh at it and move on. However, what was shocking was how extremely accurate it was. (edit: How can a frequency machine be accurate? I believe there is a demonic spiritual component to it).

There is a sheet that you have to fill out beforehand. The things you check are added into the computer, but I didn't really see this have any bearing on the results. Not many people know what diabetes insipidus even is, so when I wrote that down on the paper Dr. Wagner looked at me and was wrote down diabetes? I replied, Yes, I have diabetes insipidus. It's water diabetes. Not sugar diabetes.

For those of you who do not know what diabetes insipidus is, then let me give a very very brief explanation. I have a blog concerning this which you can find in my profile. Diabetes Insipidus is when your pituitary or hypothalamus are not properly working. Both of these "glands" are found in your brain. Your hypothalamus produces a hormone called antidiuretic hormone (or vasopressin). Then the antidiuretic hormone travels to the pituitary gland to be stored for later use. The antidiuretic hormone is extremely important because it tells your body to conserve water if it's hot outside or if you haven't drank any fluids recently. Next time when you don't drink much water on a hot day, notice how dark your urine gets. Well with diabetes insipidus it is almost always clear no matter what.  (Edit: The diagnosis of Diabetes Insipidus was a misdiagnosis along with many other things I had been told over the years. I simply had POTS, which causes frequent urination).

You can become severely dehydrated quickly simply by forgetting to constantly drink water as you are sitting at home in air conditioning. This is something most people do not understand. It can be a serious problem if not under control.

I put the headphones on to begin the scan. The most ridiculous aspect of the whole thing are the headphones. In order to get an accurate reading of the heart, they stick you all over with wires that read your pulse and blood pressure. But I am supposed to believe that headphones can read the frequencies in my body? RIGHT...

The machine begins to scan and everything looks pretty good. Yellows mean high energy. Red and blacks are very low energy. Then I started to notice my energies start to get lower. My intestines, rectum, a small portion of my stomach were some yellows with a large number of reds and a handful of blacks. This was interesting to me, but I really don't have bowel problems.

Then we got to the brain. Everything was looking good. YAY! I had an MRI done about 6-7 months ago, so I knew everything was all right. Since my sister had a brain tumor at 26 you can never be so sure these days.

I look on the computer and I see pituitary, hypothalamus, adrenals and thyroid coming up. I have to admit that I got a little excited. Dr. Wagner was not in the room at this time, so I was reacting to this stuff alone. The hypothalamus came back really good with A LOT of yellows. That was encouraging to me. Then came the pituitary-anterior and posterior scans...I seriously could not believe what I saw. It was all reds and blacks. It was by far the worst thing I had seen on the scan yet and this is exactly what I have wrong with me. The adrenal scan wasn't great, but really wasn't that bad either. My thyroid also had some reds and a few blacks, which wasn't surprising to me either. My blood was mostly black with some reds. That was quite alarming to say the least. (Edit: Again in conventional medicine, none of this can be confirmed because I was misdiagnosed with many conditions that I did not have. I had Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, but no one knew and this machine did not pick it up).

This is where it starts to get really interesting, yet unbelievable. When the scan was completed, Dr. Wagner goes back in and looks to see what is causing the body parts to be red and black. It can be viruses, toxins, allergens, or food intolerances to name a few. Therefore it could have shown so many different things. For the pituitary gland the first toxin....was MERCURY. I am not making this up! On that list I also saw gadolinium which scared me. That's what is used during an MRI...Not everyone's pituitary is going to have gadolinium in it unless they had an MRI in the past year or so. This is when I became a believer. (Edit: Amazing and terrifying that I used the word, "believer" back then when I wrote this. I think it's telling that I was agreeing with the spirit that was involved in this machine). 

Honestly I have absolutely no idea how this thing worked... (Edit: It is spiritual and not science. This is how New Age sneaks in as it disguises itself as energy medicine, healing frequencies and vibrations). It totally defeated all common sense my brain operates on. Headphones can't read frequencies, right? haha I'm going to head back again and see how I am progressing with the "energy solutions". It's a running joke, but I call them "water drops" ...But I may be laughing at myself in the end if this can help me get well.

Edit: These water drops did absolutely nothing for me except make the machine move on to other new spots that needed "help". 

Please read these....
Part 2 (More areas are now black..Oh no!! /sarcasm)
Part 3 (Where I realize the whole thing is garbage).

Hi Birdlady. I had a vega test at the beginning of my mercury toxicity, which was also very accurate. I was hooked up to the computer with a headband, had to put my feet on a mat, and hold things in my hands. After the machine had done its thing for 15 minutes, the diagnosis came out on the printer. Mercury toxicity, candida, acidity. I was impressed. How can a computer know all that? I also had some Orion testing by the holistic dentist who removed my fillings. I had many areas of red and black - adrenals and thyroid mainly, but also gut. A few months after removal these had become green and yellow, which encouraged my dentist greatly. Two years on, I am still sick though, and have just started ALA chelation. This takes a long long time to put right, but you are on the right track. Please keep blogging your experience. I wish I had done a blog, but I was so sick and terrified when I was struck down with amalgam illness I didn't have the ability to share. Best to you.

That is my concern as well imgeha. I hope that I do not become so weak and lightheaded that I am stuck in bed all day. I'll bring my laptop into bed if I have to. =)

I know this is going to be a long process too. Just gotta keep positive about it though.

I really wonder how these machines work too. They have piqued my interest!
