“THE HEART IS THE MOST REFLECTIVE MUSCLE OF BALANCED NUTRITION OR MALNUTRITION, SOMETHING THIS COUNTRY HAS A HARD TIME ACCEPTING.” Dr. Royal Lee, 1939.
The ACG was developed in 1937 by Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process Nutritional Products. The ACG records the sounds of the heart as the blood moves through the various chambers, valves, and vessels. The graph “signature” reflects the opening and closing of the valves, the contraction and strength of the heart muscle, and the efficiency of the movement of blood.
These extremely accurate signature graphs of the ACG provide us with the following information:
- whether your heart function is optimal or less than optimal
- if your body’s chemistry is balanced
- if your body’s nutritional deficiencies are causing stress on your heart
- what specific nutritional support your body is requiring
In contrast, the electrocardiograph (EKG) records only the surface electrical impulses as it moves through the nerves of the heart tissue. The EKG primarily indicates if the heart tissue (or nervous tissue network) has undergone any trauma or permanent damage on an electrical basis. It will not discriminate valvular function, muscle efficiency, etc. The EKG’s sole purpose is to diagnose disease. In contrast, the ACG looks at your heart function as a window to health and longevity.
The graph for each system’s dysfunction and nutritional deficiency has a characteristic signature. By using this extremely accurate tool, the ACG, we can easily detect such dysfunctions and deficiencies, thereby helping you make appropriate changes and monitor your progress throughout care.
It is important to emphasize that the ACG reflects the efficiency and deficiencies of heart function. The doctor is now allowed to evaluate the patient, focusing not on the degree of existing damage (i.e., with the EKG with completely different intent and purpose), but on prevention and supporting you the patient to achieve optimum health and well-being.
