Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • How Asian medicine differs from Western medicine
  • How Asian and Western medicines complement each other
  • How scars affect the body and the type of treatment necessary to correct them
  • The body’s electrical system
  • Treating scars with light laser oil
  • Signs of nutritional deficiencies
  • The best form of testing with parasites and the best action to resolve them
  • Acupuncture


Key Takeaways:

  • Eastern medicine focuses on the electrical system and the whole body. Western medicine, on the other hand, focuses on symptomatic relief.
  • Eastern medicine deals with the core problems using the tools of food as medicine, herbal medicine, and lifestyle changes.
  • When you get a scar, there’s a disconnect on your skin. And if there’s a trauma to the body, then there’s internal scarring. If we don’t restore the electrical flow through laser treatment and through oil applied to the scar itself, the brain will remain disconnected from that part of the body.
  • Anything that shows up in your skin, your hair, your nails, and your tongue can be a sign of nutritional deficiencies.
  • Basically, 99% of our problems are nutritional-based.
  • 80% of the population has parasites. The key symptoms are any kind of skin problems and digestive problems such as bloating, gas, and IBS.
  • Acupuncture is a way to activate your electrical system. 


Action Steps:

  • Check your scars and put some wheat germ oil on them. You can also have them checked by a kinesiologist.
  • Eat enough good fats. They are the basis of good hormones.
  • Exercise daily.
  • Consider getting an acupuncture treatment.
  • Get on a good nutritional program.
  • Implement these everyday strategies to avoid getting a parasitic infection:
  • Have your pets tested and make sure you give them filtered water.
  • Rinse and soak your vegetables in vinegar for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Consume lots of garlic.


Scott said:

“I’ve been striving ever since, looking for answers. And I always say it’s about ancient medicine — studying the ancient techniques — and modern technology to get the best answers.”


“Most people are like walking blocks of Swiss cheese. They have all these holes for their missing deficiencies. If you don’t fill in the holes, you’ll just never be whole.”
