TERMINAL POINT DIAGNOSIS (EPT)
1. Up to two days before the test, stop
all medications and supplements unless necessary for absolutely necessary (Ex -
blood pressure agents, insulin, seizure medications, etc.) Ask the Doctor beforehand if unsure. If you bring your medications and supplements
with you, carry them in a bag that can be left outside the testing area.
2. Avoid physical exertion (jogging,
physical stress, exercise, etc.) 2-3 hours before taking the test
3. Although stress can not be completely
avoided before the test, try to minimize it by having someone else drive you to
4. Do not use lotions or creams on your
hands or feet.
5. Remove all watches, large crystals or
stones, keys, pagers, organizers, phones, and any other electronic
devices. These can be kept in the room
6. If you have been asked to bring foods,
medications, or supplements with you for testing, put it in a bag the day
before so that there is no direct contact with it the day of the testing.
Performance 2001 will test 5-40 points on the ends of your fingertips and toes
(nail root angle terminal points). In order to obtain readings, the probe will
be moistened with salt water and a clamp will be placed on your forearm. The instrument does not send electricity,
radiation, or magnetism into the body - it only detects electric currents (the
strength is reported in amperes). This
avoids the distortion by all other electronic measurement devices. Therefore it
is absolutely safe and risk-free. It is
entirely quantitative and objective - the result will be same no matter who
tests you, just like an EKG or and EEG.
first goal is to find the lowest values to indicate which acupuncture meridians
and respective organs have the lowest level of energy. If there are multiple low points, the
possibility that you have a Low Battery Focus becomes a strong
consideration. Further testing must be
deferred until this is corrected. There
are several possibilities for treatment.

there is no lowest value, the next step is to find the highest value and
determine what will lower it towards normal.
When all values are elevated, a state of sympathetic dominance is evident
and is commonly due to allergies, intoxication, and/or fungal infections. When all values are reduced, a state of
parasympathetic dominance is evident.
are no normal values per se, only normal ranges. The values changes moment to moment depending
on the environment, metabolic state, etc.
In general most healthy/vital adults have values 400-800nA.
