What is an Acoustic Cardiograph?
In 1937 the Endocardiograph was developed by Dr. Royal Lee, founder of Standard Process Nutritional Products. The Endocardiograph records the sounds of the heart as the blood moves through the various chambers, valves, and vessels. The “graph signature” refelcts the opening and closing of the valves, contraction and strength of the heart muscle, and the efficiency of the movement of blood.
Dr. Lee used the machine to develop many of his products. These extremely accurate ” signature graphs” of the Endocardiograph provided him with information showing:
- Whether your heart function is optimal or less optimal
- If your body’s showing signs of nutritional deficiencies that are causing stress on your heart
- If your body’s chemistry is balanced
- What specific nutritional support your body may require
- If you are already on nutritional support, if it is working and/or needs to be modified
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 Endocardiograph and ACG looks at the heart function as a window to health and longevity.
