The greatest
success formula ever spoken

is the scripture: "And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more."
     Anyone can be thankful for food, for good health, for a job, for a home and family. The blessings come from being thankful for all things; for hunger, for bad health, for poverty, pain, heart attacks, strokes, and cancer; and even for the life and death of a loved one.
…..Being thankful for "all things" must include the bitter as well as the sweet. It takes more than humans are capable of to be thankful for afflictions. Sincerely asking God to help you receive all things with thankfulness is the key.
      I solemnly testify that if you ask in faith, nothing wavering, you will be made glorious, and have the things of this earth added unto you even more than a hundred fold. - Darrell Stoddard - Email     [email protected]

Would you like to
Comprehend all things?

The following verse tells you how that can happen:

“If your eye be single to (God's) my glory,  your whole bodies shall be filled with light, and there shall be no darkness in you; and that body which is filled with light comprehendeth all things.”  -  D & C 88:67

   I don't know all you must do to have an eye single to God's glory, but I do know that if you ask Him to help you do this, you will be filled with light, and receive treasures of understanding beyond anything you thought possible.  [email protected]

If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, I seek after these things.

Beyond Acupuncture
High-Tech Medical Breakthroughs from China
"Ancient Chinese Inventions"

by Darrell J. Stoddard
(Reprinted from an article published in the December 1996 
Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients)

This page is a response to a statement "snake oil medicine" that was used to describe medical care in China. I received medical training in China and observed much that was nothing but "snake oil." I also witnessed many surprisingly high-tech medical devices that are years ahead of the latest medical technology found in Western Medicine - which is the subject of this web page.

An M.D. giving a lecture on "quack medicine" stated the following about acupuncture. He said, "I've compared two charts and the points are not even in the same place: so there can't be anything to acupuncture."(1) In about that many words he dismissed acupuncture as having no value in health care. By the same logic I could say, "I went to two M.D.'s and they didn't agree; so no doctor should be considered for medical care." 

Lest any readers of the TLfDP dismiss Chinese Medicine as summarily, as the above doctor, and envision it as primitive barefoot folk doctors putting unsterile acupuncture needles into ignorant peasants, may I share with you some of the high-tech medical technology that I saw in China. 

Beyond acupuncture, the Chinese also have Western style medical schools with all of the specialists we have. Their medical doctors read Western medical journals and have similar if not equivalent training. Surprisingly, such doctors seemed to have mutual respect for traditional Chinese caregivers such as acupuncturists, auricular therapists, and chi-gong masters (2).). Medical specialists from both traditions often work hand-in-hand. 

I saw in such a medical school an instrument the Chinese have developed to measure the sinus node function of the heart non-invasively. To filter out all of the surface electrical potentials and measure the electrical signals inside the heart from the surface of the body is no small achievement. In the West, we can only do this by putting a catheter into an artery in the leg and threading it up into the heart - a very invasive and sometimes fatal procedure. 

To show me the instrument would do what they claimed, the Chinese surgeons put a catheter into a dog's heart and then put their instrument on the surface. Both instruments recorded exactly the same signal. Cardiologists in this country who make a living doing cardiac catheterizations don't seem to be interested. 

At another medical facility, the Chinese demonstrated an electrogastrograph that would non invasively diagnose all of the problems we find with upper and lower GI tests -- no radiation no barium enemas etc. Again, gastroenterologists in this country were not interested. I couldn't find one that would even talk to me. 

By the way, would anyone show me a double blind study that shows barium enemas, radioactive drinks, myelograms, or angiograms are safe. "But we can't find out what we need to know without doing these tests" is the answer I will get. That's exactly the point. Now it is possible to do at least some of it non-invasively (if anyone is interested). Whatever happened to the Hippocratic oath that says, "First I will do no harm?" 

I saw a computerized heart function monitor that included a blood pressure meter and cuff which would automatically print out 21 cardiovascular parameters with just the blood pressure measurement and height and weight inputted. 

I saw convincing photos of what appeared to be advanced cancers on the surface of the body that were eliminated by an instrument that focused light of a specific frequency upon them. 

I learned and have repeated many times a method for reprogramming gall bladders by using infrared (cold) lasers on acupuncture points to constrict the gall bladder and expel sludge and/or small stones. With ten treatments in a row, the gall bladder fills and empties properly. Thereafter the patient has a healthy and fully functional gall bladder. 

If the patient has gallstones that are too big for the above procedure, the Chinese have a portable lithotripper that costs $6,000 compared to Western lithotrippers that cost around a million dollars. After the stones are disintegrated with the lithotripper, the gall bladder can then be emptied and programmed to function properly. In this country, all we know how to do is cut out gall bladders, instead of make them better. 

Regarding the removal of gall bladders, a pathologist in the U.S. confided in me that since we have started doing laparoscopic cholecystectomies, he is getting all of these gall bladders that have nothing wrong with them! Is it incompetence or dishonesty by the doctors involved? Wouldn't it be better to make gall bladders functional instead of routinely cut them out? 

I learned a method of using laser light to permanently stop shingles and shingles pain in 2-3 days if the pustules are in the active stage. If there has been post herpetic neuralgia (shingles pain) of long duration before the treatment begins, the treatment is still helpful but may not be 100%. 

If dairy cows do not conceive because of non-ovulation, the Chinese can make them ovulate by focusing infrared light on an acupuncture point. The cows then get pregnant. The research done on many dairy herds in China where they have successfully repeated this treatment fills a book.(2) 

I believe it would also work on women who are infertile if the reason for their infertility is non ovulation. When I began to tell this to an OB GYN who claims to be an infertility expert, he said, "Let them put it in the New England Journal of Medicine and then I'll read it." With that, he stood and indicated the conversation was over. 

I learned (based on animal studies in China done first on rabbits, sheep, deer, and horses) a method of using light on acupuncture points to increase natural killer cells and/or natural killer cell activity invivo from 600 to over 1000% in ten days. It doesn't work on all patients, but because of the cost of the tests, we haven't done enough studies to know why. 

My pathologist neighbor saw the before and after blood tests and thought this would be of interest to local oncologists because of what radiation and chemotherapy do to the immune system. They said, "Natural killer cells are not important. It is the T cells that count"; so they were not interested. I have references for 146 studies on natural killer cells giving evidence that they were wrong. Since then, we have done a number of tests that have shown a significant increase in T cells as well - using the same method. 

The Chinese have developed a portable, self-contained CO2 medical laser that meets all FDA and Radiation Health and Safety requirements for sale in the United States. The laser fits in a brief case, costs about 1/10th as much, and will do essentially the same thing our lasers will do that fill up an examination room. 

The laser is near impossible to sell to Western doctors because they will not be satisfied with a tool that does a job efficiently and well without all the bells and whistles. An analogy to this would be a doctor who is personally going to deliver a small package across town. He will do it in a BMW, if not a Ferrari, or in an "18 wheeler" - never in a Chevrolet Geo. We even offered to give a new Laser Plymouth sport car with a laser compact disk player to any doctor that bought our medical laser at the price of the competition. Three lasers for the price of one. There were no takers. 

The above developments are all surprisingly high-tech coming from a country we consider primitive. A medical treatment device that had a direct bearing on my life was disarmingly simple and low-tech. There is a hospital in Nanjing China (city of 8 million people) that treats nothing but hemorrhoids. Hundreds of people go to the hospital each day, have their hemorrhoids taken care of and then immediately after ride their bicycles back to work! 

In contrast was my own surgical hemorrhoidectomy. After the surgery I had an impacted colon - bled the toilet full of blood nine times before I could have a bowel movement. I would just about as soon die as go through that again; so I purchased one of the hemorrhoid instruments. 

It was provident that I bought the instrument because I later developed another hemorrhoid just as bad as the one that required the surgery. I procured the help of a doctor who had no experience with the instrument, explained to him how to use it, and this is what I felt -- It was cold for a few seconds, then I felt a tiny prick and it was over. I then went back to work feeling better than before it was done. The next day it was about as uncomfortable as before the procedure and the day after it was completely better. That was it, and I haven't been bothered for six years. 

For me, "miracle" is not an overstatement. And we think the Chinese are primitive. Hemorrhoid surgery in the United States is barbaric compared to what the Chinese can do! I let a proctologist take this instrument for three months to try it out and got it back unused. 

One of the reasons such discoveries are made in China is, they are free to try procedures that don't pose obvious harm to the patient without first having to prove such methods are effective or safe.(3) Medical doctors, acupuncturists, chi-gong masters etc. are trusted to do their best. Malpractice lawsuits are unknown. 

Because China is so eager to catch up with the West, they reward innovation. Our system (medically speaking) punishes it. Those who deviate, from the consensus medical establishment, in search of better methods and treatments (for example - Phillip Semmelweis, Thomas McPherson Brown, Jonathan Wright and John Gambee) are punished even when they heal their patients - because they do not practice medicine like everyone else. "It's a lot safer for doctors to kill their patients with treatments that have been approved than to cure them with ones that challenge tradition" (Jane Fagen, quoted in Arthritis Breakthrough)(4). 

Most important, by combining my training in Electromedicine in the United States with Chinese healing technology, I have verified the Chinese definition of "pain" by stopping the pain in more than 9,000 patients, even pain that nothing else will touch, often with just one or two treatments. The results are usually immediate and often permanent. It is done non-invasively without acupuncture needles, drugs, herbs, surgery, exercise, massage, magnets, or manipulation. 


1. I have auricular acupuncture charts from China, Korea, Japan, France, and the United States. They do not exactly agree on all point locations but most points are remarkably close. 

2. A wing of a hospital I went to had a sign over it that said in Chinese "Music Therapy". Inside a "Chi-Gong" master demonstrated his amazing craft. He literally made my hair stand on end and exhibited control over the movements of a catatonic apoplectic patient who had his eyes closed. He did it without touching him. I don't expect anyone to believe it. I saw it with my own eyes and I'm still not sure if I believe it. The music therapy was also a surprise. They were using Western classical music for treatment! 

3. Chen Ja-pu, et. al., Curing Ovarian Disease in Dairy Cattle, Peking Agricultural University, Beijing, China 1988 (Available only in Chinese). 

4. Compared to Western medical research and treatment, there is in the Chinese system more inherent danger to the patient, but the Chinese are not totally without regard for medical safety or ethics. Animal studies are also often done there, before doing anything potentially harmful to the patient. My point is not that their system is superior but only that Chinese health care is much more conducive to discovery.
