Alternative medicine, which includes myriad alternative therapies, is a healthcare approach that is outside of conventional Western medicine. If used alongside conventional medicine, the terms complementary therapies/complementary medicine are used instead. Integrative medicine and functional medicine are additional terms that refer to a healthcare approach that purposely coordinates conventional and alternative modalities to look for and to treat the root cause of a health issue. Integrative medicine takes a holistic approach and look at the whole person for healing: the physical, mental, emotional, energetic, spiritual & social.
Qest4 Scan results often include suggestions for one or more of these therapies.
Some of the more common types of alternative therapies are:
Acupressure, acupuncture & traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)
Biofeedback and bioimpedance (Qest4 falls into this category)
Chiropractic & osteopathic manipulation
Energy therapies such as: magnetic field therapy, Reiki, therapeutic healing touch, Theta healing
Movement modalities such as: Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai Chi
Natural products including: herbs/botanicals, vitamins & minerals, probiotics & other supplements
Nutrition & diet
Massage & reflexology
Meditation & relaxation techniques including: breathing exercises, guided imagery, progressive muscle relaxation
The practices of traditional healers/Shamans
Utilizing some of these modalities can be very beneficial, and the use of complementary and alternative medicine is common & ever on the increase. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health reports that about 1 in 4 US adults currently use alternative medicine. They also report that its usage is higher among women and among those with higher levels of education. When you know better, you do better!
Herbal medicine, also known as herbalism, botanical medicine or phytomedicine, is a medical system based on the use of plants or plant extracts for therapeutic purposes to treat & prevent disease, as well as to promote health. The practice of using herbs for medicine dates back thousands of years; it’s considered the oldest system of medicine and is still the most widely used in the world today. Herbal medicine has had a major influence on many systems of medicine, including Ayurvedic (Indian) medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and Native American and Indigenous Australian medicine. Written records of Roman, Hebrew, Egyptian and other ancient cultures show that herbs were used to treat myriad illnesses. Other healing modalities such as conventional allopathic medicine, homeopathy, naturopathy and flower essences have evolved from botanical medicine. In fact, many prescription medicines used today were originally derived from plants.
Herbal remedies may come from the leaf, flower, stem, seed, root, fruit or bark of the plant. They come in the form of extracts, tinctures, capsules, powders, tablets, lotions and creams; they are also used in baths and teas.
You’ve likely utilized herbal medicine yourself. Have you ever used:

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that has been practiced for almost two hundred years. It is a natural, scientific, therapeutic healing philosophy that can be traced back to ancient Greece. Homeopathy is widely used in Europe, India, South America, Africa and Russia. In fact, the Queen of England attributes her good health to the use of homeopathy, and it has been used by the Royal Family for generations. There is even a court homeopath.
Homeopathy fills the need for a natural form of healing that supports rather than disrupts the body. It is extremely safe to use, even with children and pets. Today, people are looking for alternative natural healing modalities as a response to modern medicine's common side effects and failure to effectively deal with degenerative and chronic diseases. Homeopathy is an effective natural medical therapy. It treats the individual, not the disease, and teaches that the only way to cure illness is by increasing the health of the person who is ill, which allows individuals to take responsibility for their own health. Additionally, it's affordable, made from natural substances, and FDA regulated.
Homeopathy stimulates healing by generating a change on the energetic level of the body. The energetic change stimulates and reprograms the tissues, organs and cells of the body to cleanse or detoxify themselves of disease - thereby reestablishing health.
Imprinting or Digital Homeopathy, which is used with the Qest4 system, is a difficult concept to explain - but here goes: the website (digibio.com) of the late Jacques Benveniste MD, provides scientific proof that vibrational exchange is the language of biochemistry - this is the concept that underlies the paradigm of Homeopathy.
Doctors are taught that molecules they administer to you (drugs, vitamins, hormones, co-factors, etc.) “work” by binding to specific receptors on the cell membrane, triggering a change within the cell - a “drug” or biological effect. This is the structural matching paradigm. When you think about it, it makes sense for our cell membranes to have specific receptors for hormones, vitamins, and other “normal human” substances, but does it make sense for our cells to have receptors for drugs? Why should Nature provide us with receptors for molecules that haven’t been invented yet?
In the vibrational paradigm, the paradigm of Imprinting or Homeopathy, the molecules that we give you as well as the molecules produced in your body (the molecules that govern your physiology) work not by binding to a specific anatomic receptor on the wall of a cell, but by emitting an electromagnetic signal or signature, vibrating at a specific frequency, termed “resonance frequency,” which can be sensed and responded to by the cells of your body.
Drugs work not by binding to the cell, but by getting close enough to the cell so that their resonance frequencies can be picked up and responded to. If this concept is true, then it follows that giving you a “therapeutic molecule” would not be necessary, we could instead give you the resonance frequency of that molecule. In Homeopathy we do not bother to give you the structural molecule that emits the frequency of interest; we simply give you its resonant frequency, but in concentrated, or “potentiated” form.
Homeopathy has an abundance of research to support it. You can view a listing here.
Essential oils have been used throughout history for their medicinal, therapeutic and aromatic benefits. Essential oils are the highly concentrated version of the natural oils in plants. They are the essence, or in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) terms, the “jing,” of the plant. They are distilled from various types and parts of botanicals -- from flowers, shrubs, trees, roots, seeds and bark. They are extremely concentrated, up to 70x stronger than herbs.
The uses for essential oils are numerous and diverse. They:

More than 70 percent of patients in any general practice suffer from functional disturbances. Simply speaking, a functional disturbance occurs when no specific tissue or organ damage can be identified by conventional lab work or other pathological diagnostics, yet the patient still experiences a myriad of symptoms.
Functional medicine helps detect and identify these energetic and regulatory disturbances. Functional disturbances can be detected early. Disease does not begin with pathology, but with a preclinical phase. Functional disturbances occur when a living organism can no longer compensate adequately for changes in the environment. Environmental changes include both internal conditions of the body and external circumstances.
Ideally, it would make good sense to assess a patient using functional evaluation methods and imprinting applications. Functional medicine is intended to bridge the existing diagnostic and therapeutic gaps. Backed by over 40 years of research, this technology clearly continues to deliver life-changing results.
Economically, considerable time and substantial amounts of money could be saved simply by taking advantage of the benefits of this powerful technology in the emerging field of functional medicine. Re-establishing balance to the energetic pathways (that run through all organs, glands, and tissues) may hold the key to restoring and maintaining optimum health. This approach is not looking for any particular disease state, and therefore no claims of diagnosis or treatment can be made.
Qest4 stands for Quantum Enhanced Solutions Theory: 4th Generation. The original concept for interfacing Resonance Analysis technology with the human body was brought about by Dr. Reinhold Voll in the early 1950's (E.A.V.).
The amount of current that passes through the cellular structure of the organ, gland, or system reveals the functional status of the tissues. Because the assessment is based on defined parameters of health, any deviation from this standard can be readily detected. This allows us to see a true picture of how your body is energetically functioning.
The Qest4 analyzes the impedance and reactive capacitance of the body's energetic fields. The underlying mathematical formulas were originally applied by Dr. Tiller PhD, a material scientist with Stanford University, and have been adapted specifically to this system.
Once the Qest4 has identified the problem areas, it pre-screens potential therapeutic options. The Qest contains tens of thousands of specific frequencies in the hard drive of the computer. These frequencies can be transmitted into you via the Qest4 for the purpose of evaluation. It sends representative electromagnetic signatures of remedies to the body and measure its response.
The specific frequencies that your body finds of value can then be imprinted into a carrier solution. When you place drops of the imprinted solution under your tongue, the specific frequencies enter your body, distribute through your energetic nervous system, and stimulate your cells to respond. In essence it is a software program for the innate intelligence or energetic being that stimulates it to direct the physical tissues to adhere to an optimum pattern.
