The stomach's communication with its related acupoints

Description of this data

This data compliments a paper entitled: The stomach’s communication with its related acupoints, and the “intelligent tissue” hypothesis. The paper fully describes and analyses the data.

At the time of writing, the paper is still in production. Please see the links at the end of this dataset, which will be updated once the paper is published.

The paper demonstrates that the impedance waves recorded at the stomach-related acupoints contain a real-time reflection of the subject’s “duodenal” waves, and also the stomach’s slow waves; that these are not artefact of any type; and also that when the local tissue at the acupoints interprets organ information conveyed on an electromagnetic wave, the interpretation at each acupoint takes place at a variable speed (presumably the time taken for the local tissue to interpret and then reflect the information), which tends to produce a variable phase shift in the waves when compared to those at the other acupoints or with the source. Hence, the paper demonstrates that the tissue at the monitored acupoints adopts real-time physical changes that reflect the state of the related organ’s function (though with a variable delay, ranging from between 10ths of a second, to 1-2 seconds).
