Acoustic Cardiograph

the acoustic cardiograph (ACG)The Acoustic Cardiograph (ACG) was invented by the renowned Dr. Royal Lee, who was also the founder of Standard Process Labs and whole food nutritional supplements. In the 1930’s-50’s doctors were trained to diagnose many disease processes by listening to the heart tones. The rhythm, rate, and tone of the heart all relate to the health and status of other organs. Much like an acupuncturist diagnosing by feeling the pulse at your wrist, naturopathic doctors diagnosed by listening to the high, low, sharp, dull, or bounding sounds of the heart. Dr. Lee created a listening device called the Electro Cardiograph to put onto paper a graph of what the doctors were diagnosing by listening. This current, more sensitive device is the acoustic cardiograph, or ACG. Dr.Letitia will utilize both the cardiograph analysis as well as listening to your heart with the stethoscope to monitor your nutritional and digestive progress.
