The Angel Healing Center uses the Infratonic device to stimulate self-healing via ultra low frequency acoustic waves. The FDA recognizes this device as a "510k Therapeutic Massager."
Mechanisms of QGM
QGM Protocols from Doctors
Sixteen Clinical Case Studies
In 1978 the Chinese began measuring the output from Qigong Masters' hands. Qigong doctors in China, they found, emitted from their hands high levels of low frequency sound, 100 times higher than that of normal, healthy individuals. This device was developed in 1983 to mirror the energetic output that these master healers use.
The Infratronic QGM Quantum was the first patent ever filed in China. This unit has won 3 awards in China, including the prestigious "Outstanding Contribution to Medicine Citation," from the China Ministry of Health. The unique "chaos" circuit delivers low frequency 8-14 Hz, 70 dB sound vibrations directly to the area you want to feel better.
pain and edema.
2. Strengthens immune function and reduces inflammation.
3. Normalizes autonomic nervous system
4. Relieves some symptoms of heart disease.
1) Relieves Pain and Edema
When applied to sprain of joints, fracture, and arthritis, the QGM has the obvious result of reducing pain distention and edema. It also relieves pain due to sciatic neuralgia, cancer, lumbago, periarthritis of shoulder and stiffness of neck and shoulder muscles. Thus the QGM can effectively treat disease caused by disturbance of blood circulation and can improve local blood circulation.
Patients may feel a sensation of heat, relaxation of muscles, and gradual reduction of pain. This phenomenon may be due to excitation of cells, nerves, and blood vessels around the diseased area. This excitation may contribute to the reduction in pain.
2) Strengthens Immune Function and Reduces Inflammation.
The QGM has a function similar to short wave and ultra-short wave diathermy which strengthens immune function and reduces inflammation. It strengthens metabolism of organs and cells, increasing cellular energy, thus making the immune system stronger.
Diseases such as nephritis, inflammation of intestines and gall bladder, pancreatitis, gas, duodenal ulcer, and infantile dyspepsia, all respond favorably to treatment with the QGM, probably because of this factor of increased cellular energy.
3) Normalizes Autonomic Nervous System.
Where the autonomic nervous system is disturbed, the QGM is often useful. This includes neurasthenia, tenseness of the cerebral cortex, and fatigue.
Research shows that the low frequency signals emitted by the QGM penetrate the tissues and organs, altering the internal environment of cells, improving cellular metabolism, and relaxing nerves and muscles, thus regulating the balance between internal and external environment of nerve cells.
Some scholars suggest that emitted Qi may increase cerebral bioelectricity, balancing cell environment, resulting in disappearance of disease. In traditional Chinese medicine, this corresponds to "regulating the meridians and collaterals, "Improving blood circulation", and "nourishing internal organs".
4) Relieves Some Symptoms of Heart Disease
The QGM can relieve symptoms such
as lack of blood in the heart muscle, arrhythmia, pressure on the chest,
palpitation. and shortness of breath for pulmonary heart disease. This
result may be due to improved metabolism of cells and improved local blood
Soft Tissue Injuries and Pain
The Infratonic QGM is now being used by more than 7,000 doctors in the United States, often for soft tissue injuries and pain. The following protocols are provided by doctors who regularly use the QGM for patient treatment:
Arthritis pain: Dr. Vogelmann prescribes the QGM for home use applied daily to the arthritic areas as required for pain. He has found that this protocol substantially reduces consumption of pain medications.
Breaks and sprains: Dr. Wayman applies the QGM directly over the injury, and where there is a cast, directly over the cast, for 10 to 20 minutes three times a week on high. He finds that the recovery time is lessened dramatically.
Dr. D'Brant has a room strictly for patients with sprains and breaks in which he has them treat themselves with the QGM directly over the area of injury. He uses the QGM over sprained joints and herniated discs, and will often use two QGM'S, one at the complaint and one on bottom of the foot (K-1) or opposite the area of pain.
Where the patient has trouble sleeping because of aching at the fracture site, Dr. Fu sends the patient home with a QGM to use for the first night or two, applying it for 10 to 20 minutes before sleeping and for 10minutes upon waking with the pain. She cautions sprain patients after the treatment, that, while swelling is down and pain is reduced, they should avoid stressing it for several days because bones, muscles, and tendons are still healing.
Carpal tunnel pain: Dr. Schmidt applies the QGM to the nerve invasion (C7-T1), elbow (if painful) and carpal tunnel area for 10to 15 minutes on low. If pain increases the applicator is moved a short distance away from treatment area for about 5 minutes and then reapplied to affected area.
Chest congestion: Dr. Owens applies the QGM for 10to 20 minutes on the sternum and finds that this often clears out the congestion.
Dr. Lovelace uses it to break up mucus. She applies it on high for 10 to 20 minutes until the patient starts to cough.
Degenerative or ruptured disks: Dr. Taylor applies the QGM to the involved disk level for 10 to 20 minutes on high to relieve inflammation and swelling.
Dr. Fu adds that, in case or severe chronic lumbar pain or very low energy, the QGM may, at first, increase the sensation of pain, so advises to keep the first treatment short (5 minutes or less) and on low, even though an initial increase in pain is a sign that the QGM will probably provide significant benefit.
Inflamed scar tissue: Dr. Schmidt applies the QGM directly over the inflammation on low for 10 to 20 minutes and often notes an immediate reduction in redness and softening of scar tissue.
Menstrual cramps: Dr. Wertin applies the QGM on high for 10 minutes along the front line of the body exactly half way between the navel and the pubic bone. He has found that a single application is adequate in nearly all cases to stop the pain.
Sciatica: Dr. Wertin does not treat where it hurts, but rather, places the QGM on high under each foot for 5 minutes. He finds it highly effective.
Sinus headache: Dr. Lovelace places the QGM on the eyebrow on medium for 10 to 20 minutes, until the patient feels it clear. Dr. Fu suggests treating the cheeks and below the earlobe as well.
Temporomandibular disorders: Dr. Kollars gets good results using the positioning arm to hold the QGM at the temple, directed downward to thc jaw and cheek for 7 minutes on the side that has most pain. Then he positions it at the jaw, directed upward from the jaw toward the temple for 7 minutes.
He simultaneously applies another QGM to the top of the foot over the 3rd to 5th metatarsal bones with setting on high, treating 1-2 times per week as needed. The patient always feels much more relaxed and cervical adjustments are soft. Clicking noise in the jaw reduces after each treatment.
Following are sixteen clinical case studies of patients treated with the QGM Infratonic acoustical massager. Some were treated exclusively with the QGM. Others were treated withthe QGM as an adjunct treatment modality.
Clinical Case study #1
A 69 year old female with multiple
complaints: arthritis in knees, neck, back, nervous legs,
colitis, low back pain, hypertension,
right rotator cuff, sinus pain and congestion, voice
bothering (hoarseness, throat tightness and pain), and cataracts. Her main treatment goals
were relieving throat problems and improving eyesight by getting rid of cataracts.
Her treatments included acupuncture, nutritional supplements, and QGM. QGM was applied over both eyes, throat, CV6, GV2 and GV4. Changes noted after first treatment: Eyesight improved, right shoulder felt better, better digestion and bowel functions. She felt QGM was effective enough to purchase one to use at home. She reports continued improvement between treatment by treating herself with infrasound therapy at home.
Clinical Case Study #2
A 92 year old female complaining of arthritis in left knee, cataract in left eye, bursitis in right shoulder, heart problems, diarrhea and bladder control problems. She really did not like needles, so after the first three treatments, she was treated with QGM only, with Wan Hua oil to use on her knee for additional pain relief. She eventually, after fewer than fifteen treatments, decided to purchase a QGM to use at home. The practitioner would make house calls to evaluate her progress. He would do occasional Tui Na treatment and Piezo stim on her knee, but her primary treatment was self treatment with the QGM. She has relief from most of her symptoms, with the knee pain her primary complaint. The QGM helps that quite effectively, if she uses it daily. The cataract bothers only occasionally. Now 94, she has had two serious bouts with the flu, and her overall condition is weakened. The QGM has also been effective in relieving her chest pain and heart palpitations.
Clinical Case Study #3
This is the most remarkable QGM story. This 78 year old male had come in for treatments for two conditions: nose dripping when chewing, and left knee pain. He also mentioned his cataract in his left eye. He stated that he had been blind in the right eye for 75 years. At age 3, he jabbed himself in the right eye with his mother's sewing scissors, and was blind in that eye ever since. He could only see shades of dark and light in that eye; no objects or movement. The QGM was placed over both eyes for 30 minutes during his first treatment. No acupuncture treatment was done to his eyes or face. Needles were put into body points, but none in the face, eyes, or head. Only QGM treatment was used in the eyes.
Upon getting off the treatment table, he noted that something was different. He could see more clearly with his left eye, but he could also see with his right eye - for the first time in 75 years. His left cataract was not visible with the opthalmascope, as it was before the treatment. He stated that his vision in his left eye was much clearer than before the treatment. with the right eye, he could see images, and count the buttons on someone else's shirt, but could not see in color. He could see in black and white only. After four treatment in a month's time, he could see in color, and could see objects clearly, but could not read with the right eye.
Noted also was that visual examination of the right eye showed the scar from the injury, and the pupil in that eye was canoe shaped. After the first 30 minute QGM treatment, the pupil was round and the scar was nearly gone After the first four treatments, he stopped coming because he was mad that he could not read with his right eye, even though he could see out of it for the first time in 75 years But two months after he stopped coming, he resumed treatments, and is getting more improvement in his vision.
His nasal drainage is better but not completely gone. He is disappointed in the progress there. This remains his primary complaint. His vision has improved substantially, especially when he can see out of his right eye after 75 years of blindness in that eye.
Clinical Case Study #4
This 70 year old male came in for uncontrolled atrial fibrillation, which could not be effectively managed with drug therapy. His secondary complaints were impotence, left sinus congestion, and cataracts in both eyes. After several months of acupuncture, nutrition, and infrasound treatments, it was clear that the QGM was helping him. Without fail, it would correct his irregular heartbeat within about 15 minutes. He purchased a QGM and uses it at home. He showed the practitioner that the QGM had erased the surgical scar he had on his abdomen. One had to look really hard to see any trace of this scar, which was markedly visible prior to treating it with the QGM.
His impotence problem was getting
better and so were the cataracts. He uses the QGM at
home daily, treating his eyes and heart, and also the lower mu points, CV 6, 4, 3, 2 for his
Clinical Case Study #5
This 64 year old male patient traveled
a long distance to receive treatment to get better
eyesight. He was diagnosed with macular degeneration, and could not see well enough to
drive. Because he traveled about six hours to get to the practitioner, he stayed in a local motel and came to the clinic for two treatments a day, seven days a week for two weeks at a time. Some of the days, he was treated with QGM only on the eye points, and acupuncture needles for the body points. Within two days (four treatments), he noticed improvement in vision; more clarity, and he could read a little better. He comes for 10 - 15 day course of treatments two or three times a year. He has gotten better eyesight, but not good enough yet to drive again. He has remarked that his vision has not gotten any worse, and he is happy about that. An unusual thing occurred during or after his first course of treatments. His eyes were brown, but now they were a baby blue. His eyesight started improving about the same time that the irises started to change color.
Clinical Case Study #6 and #7
This 68 year old man and his wife of the same age started coming into the same clinic as the man in the above case study, both of them also for macular degeneration. They traveled with the man in Case Study #5 and received identical treatment for visual problems. About halfway through the first course of treatments, they both noticed some improvement in visual clarity. They eventually bought a QGM so they could self-treat at home.
They could both drive, and their vision did not regress, and it did improve, not to where they would like it to be, but the improvement was noticeable. They both reported feeling better all around, with more energy and relief of lesser symptoms of digestive stress and aches and pains. It is of interest that they both had brown eyes which turned to a baby blue, just like the man in Case Study #5. All three lived in the same town and one has to question why these three experienced a change in eye color, while others did not.
Clinical Case Study #8
This 78 year old female is being
treated for macular degeneration and secondarily shingles.
After 14 months of treatments with acupuncture, nutrition, and infrasound, she reports that the shingles are still bothering, sometimes being quite painful, and other times not very painful at all. The least painful times are right after a treatment and the less painful times last for several days.
Her vision has not gotten any worse,
and she reports that she has better clarity and a deeper
field of vision (distant vision is better) at times, but her better vision gets worse every few days - not worse than it was before beginning treatment, but worse compared to the improved vision.
She is frustrated with not getting better vision consistently, but it should be noted that she does not take her nutritional recommendations seriously. She also does not drink enough water, despite her practitioner's instructions to drink 8 - 10 glasses of water a day. The infrasound treatments were applied primarily to the eyes, and only about half as much to the shingle scar area.
Clinical Case Study #9
This 70 year old man advises some
marked visual improvement after a year and a half of
acupuncture and infrasound treatments. He has a QGM at home and uses it faithfully every
day. His right eye has an unusual eye problem which gives him only a partial field of vision. His left eye has macular degeneration and cataracts. Both conditions in the left eye have improved to the extent that his eye doctor measured a 40% improvement in visual acuity. The improvement appears to have really taken hold after he had his own QGM and began to use it for an hour or more each day.
Clinical Case Study #10
A chronic fatigue patient for as long as she can remember this 45 year old female has gotten marked relief through acupuncture, nutritional supplementation, and QGM treatments. She, too, has a QGM at home and uses it daily. She states that she would not be without her QGM. Infrasound therapy has pulled her through many a tough day when her energy level bottomed out. She is able to maintain her mental clarity better during bouts with energy loss, and she is able to be up and around more hours a day. She recovers more easily from her episodes of energy loss. Her emotional stability is greater because she knows she has immediate help available with the QGM. Over the past year and a half of weekly treatments, her overall condition has improved considerably, and her improvement has been noticed by herself, her family and friends, and her practitioner.
Clinical Case Study #11
This 51 year old cancer patient
was diagnosed with multiple tumors. She has been bedfast for
eight months. Her doctors held no hope
of cure. Their goal was only to make her as
comfortable as possible in her last days.
The full story is printed in the China Healthways Newsletter, Volume 7, Number 2. The QGM relieved this woman's intense cancer pain, which morphine could not. When constantly applied, the infrasound waves of the QGM relieved her pain and allowed her to open and close her hands, and use them to feed herself and write, which she had not been able to do for about four months. When the QGM was removed from her, the pain slowly returned and her hands cramped again and she was not able to use them. When the QGM was returned to her, the pain would go away again and she would soon be able to use her hands once again.
The infrasound therapy was abruptly discontinued after an unfortunate mishap in the nursing home. Quite likely during the process of being bathed and repositioned in her bed (she was a large lady and difficult to move in her present conditions) the IV catheter which entered her left arm and carried the morphine into the vessels near her heart, had become partially dislodged. This went unnoticed by the nursing home staff, and for several days, the morphine was diffusing into the vessels of her left arm and pooling there, instead of reaching the target vessels near the heart.
Her arm began to fill with morphine and when this was discovered, she was immediately transported to a hospital 50 miles away to correct the situation. The QGM was left behind at the nursing home. She started having seizures and died within a few days.
One of her primary care nurses at the nursing home commented that this lady had lived a lot longer than anyone had expected, and quite possibly, in the nurse's estimation, because of the QGM.
Clinical Case Studies #12 and #13
Having read the China Healthways
Newsletter article mentioned in the previous case study, a
doctor phoned in an order for a QGM
to be sent to a relative in another state who was
suffering from cancer. He later ordered another machine to be sent to another out-of-state
relative who was also a cancer patient.
In the first case, the patient experienced
a substantial reduction of pain within the first one to two
hours of infrasound therapy, and the pain was gone within a day or two.
patient was soon off all drugs and off oxygen. She did have to be hospitalized after catching pneumonia a few days later, and her doctor ordered the QGM to be brought to her hospital room because it had been helping her so much.
In the second case, information received stated that the patient was experiencing much pain relief from using the QGM, and that her overall condition appeared to be improving.
Clinical Case Study #14
An 87 year old female patient with
macular degeneration feared she would soon lose her
eyesight completely. Her doctor said that nothing more could be done. She treated her own
eyes with the QGM for several hours a day. She noticed a marked improvement in visual
clarity and acuity within the first day of treatment.
She has days where her vision gets
worse, but not worse than before beginning treatment.
They get worse - less clear and the appearance of some floaters - in relationship with the
improvement she has noticed. Her eyes have not gotten any worse than they were before
beginning infrasound therapy. When her condition seemed to plateau, the practitioner made recommendations of Bilberry supplements.
The practitioner loans her a QGM
for several weeks at a time. She advises that during her
times without the machine, her vision is at its lowest ebb. It improves once she starts using the machine again. This may be a case of being able to stop, retard, or limit the furtherance of disease, but not being able to reverse it, due to the patient's age and condition.
Clinical Case Study #15
This 90 year old lady was treated exclusively with the QGM for pain and stiffness in both her hands. She also complained of cracking of the skin in the form of paper cut-like cracks in her fingertips. She self treated with the QGM, applying the sound waves to the painful areas, to the elbow when in a flexed position, and to the heel of the hand with the hand and fingers drawn up. She did the same treatment on both right and left hands and elbows.
The practitioner did not treat her
with the QGM. He simply dropped off a QGM at her house for
her to use and dropped in weekly to reassess her condition and make further
recommendations. At these times, the practitioner did some light Tui Na on her hands and
arms, which gave her some further relief. The patient credits the QGM with bringing about the improvement. She could tell the difference even as the QGM was being applied.
After several hours of using the QGM on the first day, she advised marked improvement: she was able to open and close both fists, the left better than the right, due to a broken finger in the right hand years ago, which did not heal quite straight. She had not been able to close her fists for probably a year or more, and had gotten progressively worse in the three months prior. She also noted that her pain was gone after a week of using the QGM for between two and three hours daily.
She is well satisfied with her improvements.
The only part of her condition that did not
improve a lot was the cracks in her fingertips. This part of her condition did get noticeably
better with the QGM treatment, but was not totally healed. The practitioner put her on some nutritional supplements and topical oils for the skin condition. At the time of this writing, the supplements and oils were helping the skin condition, the pain had not returned, and she was still able to open and close her hands easily.
In the next case study, infrasound was the only modality used, with all treatments being done through the patient's eyes.
Clinical Case Study #16
This 62 year old female sought treatment for nervous tension and headaches, with occasional low back pain. The practitioner decided to treat with infrasound only, directing the sound waves through the patient's eyes. No other treatment modality would be used, and the sound waves would be directed only through the eyes.
The assumption behind this is: the eyes tell the organs how to respond to exterior conditions. If diagnosis can be done through the eyes, then treatment should be able to be done through the eyes. If chiropractic works by adjusting the spine to produce changes throughout the body, then why cannot the eyes, which contain nerves which supply the spine, and hence, the rest of the body, be the target of treatment? The only totally safe method of treating through the eyes, other than color therapy, would be infrasound.
The treatment worked. The patient
noticed relief of all symptoms during the first treatment.
She received a total of four treatments,
coming back when the symptoms recurred. Her
headaches, nervous tension, and low back pain have not returned since the fourth infrasound treatment.
