positive ions to leave the body. As a result, the body returns to its normal state of
electrical balance naturally. Users report that using the Q-Ray Ionized Bracelet often
increases strength, restores energy, reduces pain, and increases their sense of health
and well being. Further, many professional athletes rely on Q-Ray to help with strength,
speed, endurance, flexibility and performance, giving them a competitive edge. Now
there is a breakthrough, drug-free way to free yourself from everyday aches and pains
that are keeping you from enjoying life to the fullest.
|THE SYNERGY OF Q-RAY WELLNESS BRACELETS
AND THE ACUPUNCTURE MERIDANS
By Professor Frank Yurasek
NMD, PHD (TCM), MSC
|"We begin with the presumption that when we are discussing meridians we are
discussing gradients. Further, these gradients operate within fields, areas of
potential influence. Qi, while it may be much more than electricity, is similar
to electricity in that it can be described as moving from an area of greater or
lesser potential to an area of a complimentary and opposite potential. This is
simply another yin-yang pair. Thus meridians may be thought of as the path of
least resistance between gradients. Depending on the source and polarity,
energy passes from yin to yang, yang to yin, and the meridian is the resulting
course. The meridian description as a line or channel is a practical means of
describing and organizing the phenomena by which we observe the transference of
this energy." from Extraordinary Vessels by Kiko Matsumoto Stephen Birch
|The identification of the acupuncture meridians were recorded over
3500 years ago and that information refined and applied continuously over
several millenniums as a way to balance the body’s bio-energy and in the
process, relieve pain and reverse disease. In this commentary we will look at
the 12 major meridians from 2 different perspectives, as six complimentary
energetic pairs and as three different levels of yin and yang strength split
between the upper and lower torso.
|We will also look at the genesis of the 8 extra-ordinary vessels,
from which the 12 meridians evolved. We will also focus on specific points that
link the 12 meridians together, and the function of the Extraordinary Vessels,
as well as the master points that influence them, particularly the two master
points, Pericardium 6 and Triple Warmer 5, named “Inner and Outer Gate”
respectively, and located on the inner and outer wrists. By virtue of their
location they are most proximate to the influence of the Q2 Wellness bracelet.
We will also look at the energetic nature of that influence.
The 12 Meridians, Defined by the Organs through Which They Run
1) The Lung Meridian runs bilaterally through the lung organ internally, and
externally from the height of the 2nd rib, up over the front of the armpit, and
down the inner arm to the outer thumb tip. It treats chest fullness, asthma,
cough, sore throat, the common cold, shoulder and back ache, and pain along the
course of the lung meridian.
2) The Large Intestine Meridian runs bilaterally through the large intestine
organ internally, and externally from the tip of the index finger to along side
the opposite nostril. It treats abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation, sore
throat, toothache, rhinitis, and pain along the course large intestine
3) The Stomach Meridian runs bilaterally through the stomach organ internally,
and externally from beneath the eye, down to the tip of the 2nd toe. It treats
stomach pain and distention, vomiting, facial paralysis, sore throat, mania,
and pain along its course through the chest, knee, and ankle.
4) The Spleen Meridian runs though the spleen organ internally, and externally
from the outside of the big toe bilaterally, up the inside of the leg, and
continuing up the abdomen and the ribs, to end at the 6th intercostals space
under the armpit. It treats gastric pain, abdominal distention, vomiting,
jaundice, general weakness, and pain along the course of the meridian.
5) The Heart Meridian runs through the heart organ internally, and externally
from the armpit bilaterally down the inside of the arm to the inside tip of the
little finger. It treats throat dryness, pain in the heart and chest, thirst,
jaundice, and pain along the course of the meridian down the arm.
6) The Small Intestine Meridian runs bilaterally through the small intestine
organ internally, and externally from the outside tip of the little finger,
along the outside edge of the arm, across the upper back, and along the neck to
the front of the ear. It treats lower abdominal pain, deafness, jaundice, sore
throat, blood in the urine, and pain along the course of the meridian.
7) The Bladder Meridian runs bilaterally through the bladder organ internally,
and externally from the inside corner of the eye up over the head and down the
length of the spine, along the back of the legs and along the outside of the
ankle to the end of the little toe. It treats urine retention and enuresis,
mania, headache, eye disease, and pain in the neck, back, lumbar area, and
8) The Kidney Meridian runs bilaterally through the kidney organs internally,
and externally from the soles of the feet up the inner legs, through the
abdomen to the clavicle. It treats dryness of the tongue, sore throat, lumbago,
edema constipation and diarrhea, leg atrophy and motor impairment, difficulty
inhaling, and pain along the course of the channel.
9)The Pericardium Meridian runs through the pericardium internally, and from
the chest, along the middle of the inside of the arm, down to the end of the
middle finger. It treats angina, fullness of the chest, palpitations,
restlessness, mania, spasm of the elbow and arm, and pain along the course of
10) The Triple Heater Meridian connects the upper, middle and lower portions of
the body, internally running bilaterally through all the organs of the body.
Externally it begins at the end of the ring finger and continues upward through
the outside middle of the arm, across the shoulder and neck, around the ear,
and to the outside end of the eyebrow. In addition to treating the function of
the organs it runs through, it also treats deafness, tinnitus, sore throat, ear
ache, and shoulder, elbow and wrist pain.
11) The Gall Bladder Meridian runs through the gall bladder organ internally.
Externally it begins at the outer edge of the eye and zig zags along the top of
the head before in moves down the side of the body and legs to end of the 4th
toe. It treats the dizziness, malaria, headache, jaw pain, deafness, tinnitus,
and pain along the course of the meridian.
12) The Liver Meridian runs through the liver organ internally. Externally it
starts at the end of the big toe and runs along the inside of the leg, through
the abdomen, and ends on the rib cage, below the nipple. It treats lumbago,
vomiting, enuresis, urine retention, hernia, and pain in the lower abdomen.
|The 12 meridians are coupled in Yin/Yang pairs; Lung/Large
Intestine, Spleen/Stomach, Heart/Small Intestine, Kidney/Bladder,
Pericardium/Triple Warmer, and Liver /Gall Bladder. Each Meridian also has a
specific point that connects it to the energetic opposite of the pair. For
instance Lung 7 connects the Lung Meridian to the Large Intestine Meridian and
Large Intestine 6 connects the Large Intestine Meridian to the Lung Meridian.
Stomach 40 connects the Stomach Meridian to the Spleen Meridian and Spleen 4
connects the Spleen Meridian to the Stomach Meridian. Heart 5 connects the
Heart Meridian to the Small Intestine Meridian and Small Intestine 7 connects
the Small Intestine Meridian to the Heart Meridian. Bladder 58 connects the
Bladder Meridian to the Kidney Meridian, and Kidney 4 connects the Kidney
Meridian to the Bladder Meridian. Pericardium 6 connects the Pericardium to the
Triple Warmer Meridian, and Triple Warmer 5 connects the Triple Warmer to the
Pericardium Meridian. Gall Bladder 37 connects the Gall Bladder Meridian to the
Liver Meridian, and Liver 5 connects the Liver Meridian to the Gall Bladder
Meridian. This allows for the all the meridians to be linked together in a
cohesive energy matrix that circulates throughout the body, as well as being
able to help bridge energy from one meridian to its husband/wife pair to
maintain energetic homeostasis.
The Six Levels of Energy
|Additionally, the 12 meridians are grouped in 3 Yang arm/leg pairs
and 3 Yin arm/leg pairs as well. This is an energetic hierarchy as well as a
stratification of energy levels from superficial to deep, the more external
being yang and the deeper being yin.
|For instance Arm Tai Yang (Small Intestine Meridian) is paired
with Leg Tai Yang (Bladder Meridian). Tai Yang means Great Yang and treats cold
symptoms, fever, and headache.
| Arm Shao Yang (Triple Warmer Meridian) is paired with Leg Shao Yang (Gall
Bladder Meridian). Shao Yang means Lesser Yang and treats alternating fever and
chills, lack of appetite, irritability and nausea.
|Arm Yang Ming (Large Intestine Meridian) is paired with Leg Yang
Ming (Stomach Meridian). Yang Ming means Bright Yang and treats the "Four
Bigs," big fever, big sweats, big thirst, and big pulse.
|The 6 Yin meridians are also grouped in arm/leg pairs. Arm Tai Yin
(Lung Meridian) is paired with Leg Tai Yin (Spleen Meridian), with Tai Yin
being Great Yin. It treats distended abdomen, vomiting, lack of appetite, and
|Arm Jueyin (Pericardium Meridian) is paired with Leg Jueyin (Liver
Meridian) and means Absolute Yin and treats hot and cold conditions that result
in diarrhea, thirst, heart pain, hunger and vomiting.
|Arm Shao Yin (Heart Meridian) is paired with Leg Shao Yin (Kidney
Meridian) and means Lesser Yin. It treats cold extremities, lethargy and
sleepiness, and weak pulse.
|This coupling, based on degree of energetic intensity and body
depth, unites the upper and lower body, creating an inner/outer (yin/yang) and
upper/lower (arm/leg) energy matrix. There is one more energy network to
consider, the Eight Extraordinary Vessels, along with their master points, in
order to completely understand how the Q Ray bracelet can exert such
far-reaching influence over this bio-energetic matrix
The Eight Extraordinary Vessels
|The Eight Extraordinary Vessels are reflected in an early
energetic model, the eight trigrams of the I Ching, which was observed over
5,000 years ago by Fu Xi, based on binary patterns exhibited in nature. These
patterns are identified by eight combinations of broken lines, representing
yin, and solid lines, representing yang, arranged in a hexagram to represent
the ba qua, or eight directions, North/South, East/West, Northeast, Northwest,
Southeast and Southwest.
|The Eight Extraordinary Vessels are arranged accordingly, with the
Ren or Conception Vessel (The Sea of Yin) being located in the lower or South
position, the Du or Governing Vessel (The Sea of Yang) being located in the
West position, the Yang Qiao being located in the North position, and the Yang
Wei located in the East Position. The Dai or Beltway is located in the
Southeast, the Chong or Penetrating Vessel (Sea of Blood) is located in the
Northwest, the Yin Qiao in the Southeast, and the Yin Wei in the Northeast.
|Moving from the macrocosm of the universe to the microcosm of the
embryo, in cell division, the cell develops from a single cell which has a
front and a back, and therefore a yin or Ren Vessel surface and a yang or Du
Vessel surface, to two cells through the middle of which the Chong Vessel
penetrates. When it doubles to four cells the Dai Beltway Vessel binds the
middle of the embryonic tetra. When it divides again the Yin Wei/Yangwei and
YinQiao/YangQiao Vessels emerge. Thus the energetic template of the
Extraordinary Vessels is cast at the embryonic stage of the organism and gains
influence as the body matures. The Ren is paired with the YinQiao Vessel, the
Du is paired with the YangQiao Vessel, the Chong is paired with the YinWei
Vessel, and the Dai is paired with the YangWei Vessel.
|In the adult body the Ren or Conception Vessel begins at the
perineum and travels up the front of the body to the chin, and treats
hemmoroids, diarrhea, blood in the sputum, cough with phlegm, toothache, heart,
chest and abdominal pain, lumbago, blood disease, miscarriage, and breast
abscess. Its master point is Lung 7 located on the wrists.
|The Du or Governing Vessel begins at the perineum and travels up
the spine and over the top of the head, to end on the upper lip and treats arm
and leg spasms, epilepsy, headaches, knee or leg pain radiating from the low
back, neck tension on one side, gums, numb arms and legs, tetanus, and night
sweats. Its master point is Small Intestine 3 located on the hands.
|The Chong or Penetrating Vessel begins at the perineum and travels
through the center of the body upward to the mouth and treats heart pain, chest
fullness, vomiting, acute stomach pain and spasms, navel pain, retained
placenta, and watery diarrhea. Its master point is Spleen 4 located on the
|The Dai or Belt Vessel circles the body horizontally at the bottom
of the rib cage and treats hemiplegia of the arms and legs, pain, fever, and
numbness anywhere in the body, swelling of the head, red and swollen eyes with
vertigo, toothache, deafness, swollen throat, and skin rash or allergies. Its
master point is Gall Bladder 41 located on the ankles.
|The Yin Qiao Vessel begins at the inner side of the foot and goes
up the from of the body to the inner side of the eye and the Yang Qiao Vessel
begins at the outer side of the foot and goes up the back over the shoulder and
across the face to end at the eye and treat urinary incontinence, vomiting and
diarrhea, stomach pain and difficulty passing stool, difficult labor, bloody
stool, and feeling of something stuck in throat. The master point of the Yin
Qiao Vessel is Kidney 6 on the inside of the ankle and of the Yang Qiao Vessel
is Bladder 62 on the outside of the ankle.
|The Yin Wei Vessel begins on the inner calf and ends at the
forehead and the Yang Wei Vessel begins at the outer ankle and travels up the
back and neck, and continues up over the head, ending at the ear. They treat
fullness and swelling in the chest, watery diarrhea, anal prolapse, difficulty
swallowing, lumps in the abdomen, knot in the chest, swollen and painful
joints, and night sweats. The master point of the Yin Wei Vessel is Pericardium
6 located on the inner wrist, and of the Yang Wei Vessel is Triple Warmer 5
located on the outer wrist.
|It should be noted that the Extraordinary Vessels do not have
their own separate points, but rather incorporate points from the 12 main
meridians. In the energy ecology of the body, they are considered reservoirs of
energy that feed and regulate the other twelve meridians.
Why the Q2 Wellness Bracelet Affects the Acupuncture Meridians
|Dr. Robert Becker, an orthopedic surgeon from New York, was one of
the early pioneers in what Dr. Richard Gerber defined as Vibrational Medicine
in his book by the same title. In that book Dr. Gerber describes how Becker was
able to cause frogs to regenerate amputated legs, which normally is limited to
salamanders. This was accomplished by reversing the “current of injury” at the
stump from positive to negative through electrical stimulation. In the process,
Dr. Becker discovered a new healing feedback loop that transmits information by
way of the glial and Schwan cells by way of slow analog changes in direct
current rather than the action potentials of the nerve network.
|J.J. Hurtak in The Book of Knowledge, The Academy of Future
Science, 1979, defines the science of "Electro medicine as follows:
|"The stimulation of cartilage regeneration by current-magnetic
injection, the restoration of partial limb regeneration by small direct
currents, the stimulation of bone growth by electrical fields, the inhibition
of growth of implanted tumors in mammals by electrical current are all part of
Electro medicine. Electro medicine is the science which harnesses the cellular
electrophysiological energies by using the right electromagnetic field."
|Later, Hurtak describes how the interface between external
energetic systems such as the Q2 Wellness bracelet and the internal energetic
system (Bio-Energy) of the acupuncture meridians works.
|"Man’s biological interconnection with the higher frequency
energies takes place through the Acupuncture Meridian System, which is
interfaced with the Axiatonal Line and Grid System. The acupuncture and
axiatonal lines are part of a fifth dimensional circulatory system which is
used to draw from the Overself body, the basic energy used for renewing the
|Einstein was the first to posit that matter and energy are
interconvertable and interconnected. The square root of minus one represents,
according to mathematician Charles Muse, the category of numbers used to
describe the interaction of subtle energies in living systems. Dr. Tiller
associates this idea of negative space/time with a force he describes as
magnetoelectric radiation. Based on this theory, Dr. Gerber reasons that
negative space/time matter would demonstrate the property of negative entropy,
a tendency of living systems decreasing disorder, as opposed to matter, which
tends toward entropy, or increasing disorder. In other words, negative entropy
can be viewed as the innate ability, given proper internal or external
stimulus, to heal. One example of this that comes to mind is the use of
electrostatically charged pellets placed on specific ear acupuncture points in
"A pebble well-placed can move the entire surface of a lake."
