The ACG (acoustic cardiograph)
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. Dr. Cohen is a renowned expert in this field, with patients reporting remarkable results.
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 heart function as a window to health and longevity.
“The heart is the most reflective muscle of balanced nutrition or malnutrition,
something this country has a hard time accepting.”
Royal Lee, 1939
The ACG makes a picture of heart
sounds and enables the doctor to “hear” by “seeing” heart
function on the graph.
We can measure the heart sound as a reflection of balanced body chemistry, nutrition, and overall function of your body’s systems.
In other words, the “graph
signature” is a reflection of the heart sounds.
The heart sounds are a reflection of the function of the heart.
The function of the heart is affected by many of our systems, i.e., adrenal, liver &
gallbladder, circulatory and kidney function, etc.
Heart function is also
affected by our nutrition, i.e., vitamins, minerals and essential
fatty acids, etc.
Each system’s dysfunction and nutritional deficiency has a characteristic “graph signature.”
By using this extremely accurate tool, the ACG, we can easily detect such
dysfunctions and deficiencies thereby helping us make appropriate
recommendations and monitor a patient or client’s progress throughout care.
is important to emphasize that the ACG reflects the efficiency of heart function. The doctor is now allowed to evaluate the practice member, focusing not on the degree of existing damage (i.e., with the EKG with completely different intent and purpose), but on prevention and supporting the patient or client to achieve optimum health and well being.email your questions to
Dr. Cohen thoroughly supports this excellent tool for establishing YOUR baseline to extending your longevity. It is vital to seize every tool, every resource available to increase not only the quantity, as well the quantity of the days and years of your life.
