The machine that can tell if you’re well
The Quantum Xrroid system is complementary medicine gone sci-
fi: it thinks it can diagnose your bodily health and your moods.
Precious Williams went to find out.
THERE'S a scarily high-tech new health-testing device that's
coming to a health clinic near you. If its creators are to be believed,
the machine can read what is on your mind as well as what's going
on in your body. The Quantum Xrroid system - QX for short - is a
computer linked arrangement that's just arrived in the UK and is
tipped to revolutionise complementary medicine.
Developed by a former Nasa scientist, Professor Bill Nelson, QX
works by measuring your body's "electrical parameters". Using
ultra-sensitive computer software, the device "reads" your physical
and emotional vibrations. In short, it can tell you whether you are
healthy at a click of the mouse. It's also capable of analysing your
physical reactions such as allergies to more than 3,500 different
Jayney Goddard, president of the Complementary Medicine
Association, says: "Humans are naturally electrical beings and the
QX system accurately measures the patient's electrical responses.
The device uses electrophysiological reactivity to pick up
sensitivities and identify the overloading of specific substances and
At the Grove Health Clinic in Kensington, QX practitioner Susan
Astbury strapped electrical cables to my head, ankles and wrists
(this is painless, if slightly uncomfortable). The cables are wired to
Susan's state-of-the-art laptop.
No pulse or blood pressure readings are taken. Instead Susan
types details of my sleeping, eating and working patterns straight
into the computer. In a matter of minutes, the QX machine will have
tested my body's electro-magnetic parameters for signs of
allergies, vitamin-and-mineral deficiencies, viral and bacterial
infections, parasites and even adverse moods and emotions.
"Strong emotions are capable of causing physical reactions, which,
thanks to this system, can now be measured," says Susan, typing
furiously. "With ailments which are difficult to treat, like migraines,
QX can determine whether the underlying problem is sugar toxicity
or simply high stress levels. The readings allow me to pinpoint your
body's precise requirements and prescribe tailor- made treatments
Seconds later, my "vibrational energy" details are digitally analysed
and displayed on-screen in easy-to- read jargon. The QX machine
has revealed a reassuringly high level of overall physical and
But it isn't all good news. According to the QX analysis, I have
higher-than-healthy stress levels (hardly surprising, with my
constant rush to meet deadlines). My level of patience is markedly
low (something my boyfriend tells me every day). The machine then
churns out a personalised allergy-elimination programme. Again, it
is uncannily spot-on in its suggestion that my body was reeling
from recent overloads of alcohol, sugar and tobacco. In the week
before my appointment, I'd been to six booze-laden parties and
gone back to smoking 10 cigarettes a day.
What I wasn't prepared for was to be told that the real enemy to my
health was carrot juice. If QX is to be believed, my daily trips to the
juice bar are counter-productive. The levels of carotene in my body
are even more toxic than the nicotine.
The final stage of the QX treatment involves a five-minute interlude
during which electro-magnetic resonances are zapped throughout
my body (again, this is painless, but just try keeping a straight face).
These resonances, says Susan, will temporarily rebalance the
chakras. But for longer-term health benefits, she suggests I return
to the clinic for a few sessions of colour therapy. QX advocates a
holistic approach to health prevention rather than cure. According to
this philosophy, there's no point in indulging in quick-fix cures
since you'll simply overload your body rather than improving the
underlying electro physical vibes. "There's a definite validity to QX,"
says Jayney Goddard. "It's impressive. I feel that the system should
be rolled out to all GP clinics." However, QX is not without its critics
and Professor Edward Ernst of the Royal College of General
Practitioners was quick to assure me that QX therapy was, at best,
a waste of cash. "It may sound good in principle but the notion is
pretty implausible. There is no evidence I have ever heard of to
suggest for a minute that this system is effective," says Professor
Ernst. "If a patient is suffering from illness he must see his GP. To
put such claims out there about this machine's alleged capabilities
is misleading and potentially dangerous."
I can't imagine the average GP investing in a QX machine: prices
start at £10,000. But, for myself, the results were accurate and the
dietary recommendations (no cheese, less alcohol and carrot
juice) have been effective. After two weeks of sticking to the advice
I've lost 4lb and acquired a glowing complexion, so I think I can
safely skip the colour therapy.

What if there was a way your body was able to repair a
damaged organ or renew and regenerate itself at an
accelerated rate? Or a way to regain peak mental and
physical performance despite having felt sick and tired for
years? Well, there is a way. There are thousands of
EPFX/SCIO practitioners who believe that it is not
necessary to prescribe costly drugs or undergo expensive
medical treatments, but instead to be able to utilize the
healing powers of Quantum Medicine.
This miraculous technology is able to energetically scan
and harmonize the body's stresses and imbalances, and
return the body back to health by reducing the stressors
that caused disease in the first place. Excess stress is
known as the pathway to disease. This stress has been
known to come from many sources, such as toxicity,
trauma, pathogens, mental factors, perverse energy,
allergies, heredity, habits and deficiency syndrome which
all cause imbalances in the body. The EPFX/SCIO allows
the body to gain control of the stressors and to activate
the body's own potent medicines for healing. This device
taps into the subconscious and reveals the imbalances of
the body. It presents the state of the mind, body and soul
and the reasons for this disconnection.
When the body becomes ill, the body's first signal that all
is not well is through vibrational or electromagnetic waves.
These damaging frequencies are stored in the cells and
could go unnoticed for many years. The damaging
frequencies could be detected long before any physical
symptoms erupt. The human body is controlled and
regulated by what's known as a Quantum Energy Field.
This field is a network of innumerable biophotons, which
acts like an extremely fast supercomputer in the body.
Every thought and action is accompanied by an electrical
activity in the nervous system and by biophoton
communication among cells. These electrical activities
register a specific frequency and each cell in our body
operates at a certain frequency. Our cells network
together to keep our body in harmony. When any kind of
stress enters the body, it produces erratic vibrations that
lead to disharmony, which is then followed, by injury and
In the United States , we have the world's finest doctors for
treating any kind of traumatic injury. Yet, when it comes to
preventative medicine or activating the body's healing
powers, we tend to lag behind those in other countries.
Pharmaceutical treatments do not cure the condition, they
simply block symptoms. This blockage of symptoms begins
to build up and that is what doctors diagnose as disease.
Once they have diagnosed this disease, they treat it by
just handing out a prescription for every symptom.
Shouldn't doctors be educating patients about the causes
that underline symptoms? Shouldn't they educate and
teach their patients how to take greater responsibility for
their own health?
Quantum Medicine demonstrates that the same bodily
intelligence that knows how to heal a cut finger without
even thinking about it can heal you of almost any
pathology. In order to achieve this, you'll need to learn
how to nourish your body, and prevent stress from
exhausting its healing energies. You'll need to learn how
to empower the body and to keep in a state of vibrant
