Researchers began independent testing on the original TESLAR® watch in 1988. In an independent pilot study done in 1989, Dr. Eldon Byrd, PhD, former U.S. Navy scientist for the investigation and research of the biological effects of ELF, observed a decrease in overall frequency amplitude and a shift toward lower frequencies in EEG recordings from individuals wearing the TESLAR® watch. This pilot study demonstrated that the brain throws off 80% of the assaulting ELF with the help of the TESLAR®.
Other studies have used Electro-dermal Screening (EDS). Electro-dermal screening was developed 35 years ago by Dr. Reinhold Voll, a German M.D., who combined the principles of acupuncture with modern technology. Each individual structure in the body has its own electromagnetic field. According to EDS, the strength of this electromagnetic field can be measured at identified acupuncture points, each point having a direct relationship to a specific organ. Using sensitive instruments, one can measure the electromagnetic potential at each point and thus draw a conclusion as to the electrical balance of the inner organs.
Using EDS in 1991, Dr. Anthony Scott-Morley, PhD, M.D. (alternative medicine), tested a variety of devices claiming to protect the subject from various environmental stresses. While testing an early version of the analog TESLAR® watch, Dr. Scott-Morley showed the presence of the watch enabled the body to screen out or block ambient signals within our environment and those produced by generators and computer terminals. Testing the TESLAR® on many of his patients, he recorded dramatic improvements in the energy level readings of most organs. Wolde Korol, Diplomat of Acupuncture, replicated Dr. Scott-Morleys findings in 1992.
Dr. Glen Rein, PhD, while at Stanford Medical School, conducted in-vitro research using the TESLAR® watch to isolate from possible psychosomatic effects in patients – the placebo effect. Dr. Reins results showed that the presence of the TESLAR® watch provided an environment in which there was, on average, 137% enhancement of human lymphocyte proliferation (immune function). Another test demonstrated that nerve cells could inhibit their uptake of noradrenalin (a depression-fighting process) by as much as 19.5% in the presence of the TESLAR® watch.
In June, 2002, the results of a pilot Heart-Rate Variability (HRV) study conducted by Dr. Michael Borkin, N.D., appeared in Alternative Medicine Magazine demonstrating the TESLAR® watch positive influence in the presence of a cell phone. HRV is the measurement of the beat-to-beat changes in heart rate, giving a dynamic glimpse into the autonomic nervous system (ANS) state. This system controls the beating of the heart, the movement of the gastrointestinal tract and the secretion of hormones by the endocrine glands, among other vital functions. Thus, an HRV test is a good measurement of a body overall response to stimuli. Dr. Borkin stated that his HRV study showed that the use of the TESLAR® watch may in fact compensate for some of the negative impact of using a cell phone.
In 2003, British Medical Doctor, Nyjon Eccles, Member of the Royal Council of Physicians, saw similar results on patients. Dr. Eccles HRV testing confirmed that without the TESLAR® watch, the autonomic nervous system becomes stressed when exposed to an energized mobile phone. While wearing the TESLAR® watch in the presence of an energized cell phone, Dr. Eccles results revealed a stabilizing effect on or even beneficial stimulation of parasympathetic regulatory system activity.
Dr. Valerie Hunt, professor emeritus of UCLA and founder of the BioEnergy Fields Foundation, has performed extensive research on the human body electromagnetic field. Dr. Hunt experience with the TESLAR® technology has led her to conclude that wearing the TESLAR® watch makes the [biofield] more dynamic and coherent, so that its transactions with the world are not just reactionary, but also selective.
