Far-Fetched Claims for the
Guardan Homeopathic Imprinter and Potentizer

Stephen Barrett, M.D.

EagleResearch of Simpsonville, South Carolina claims that its $695 Guardian Homeopathic Imprinter and Potentizer "could well be the greatest discovery ever made to health care technology." [1] According to a brochure:

The Guardian is able to create a powerful homeopathic remedy from the patient’s body itself. The remedy contains a greatly amplified imprint of the individual’s total bioenergetic signature (including any harmful vibrations present in a person’s body), and if worn on the body is able to continuously send an amplified signal to the body—repeatedly giving the body clear direction as to how to restore balance [1].

The company's Web site further claims:

With this new instrument and procedure, it is possible to imprint and greatly amplify the body's vibrational signature and apply it back into the body in such a way as to stimulate restorative and healing processes. It is as if the Guardian provides the body with a clear signal /roadmap to the underlying causes of imbalance—harmful degenerative processes, micro-organisms, parasites, toxins, deficiencies, etc. Once the body has a clear signal it can activate numerous healing processes with amazing results and positive health improvements [2].

The manual for the device states:

The Guardian Imprinter & Potentizer is a device that has input & output plates. The patient’s hand is placed on the input plate, a carrier/ampule is placed on the output plate. The Guardian is turned on and activated. The patient’s vibrational signature is copied, greatly amplified and transferred to the carrier/ampule. To increase the remedy even further, the carrier is then placed on the input plate and the patient’s had is placed on the output plate and the Guardian is activated again. The carrier, acting as a homeopathic remedy, should then stimulate the body in such a way that restorative processes are activated and harmful factors are brought back into balance. With the Guardian it takes only seconds to imprint the body’s vibrational signature, amplify it and send it back to the body. The Guardian’s ease of use and versatility allow for various methods of signal application and a wide spectrum of uses. Remember—the carrier bottle/ampule need only be placed in contact with the person, nothing needs to be taken orally [3:8]. . . .

Chronic diseases or states of imbalance such as colitis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, allergies, arthritis, asthma, etc. often readily respond to restorative, non-invasive health care methods that gently and repeatedly provide the body’s bioenergetic communication network with directive healing signals [3:16]. . . .

Any symptom or disease the body may be experiencing is the manifestation of imbalance within the body’s bioenergetic network, and the Guardian, when applied as directed, has a direct affect on the body’s bioenergetic network. The use of the Guardian provides a safe, non-invasive, profoundly effective way to restore and balance the body’s bioenergetic pathways, and it has virtually limitless practical applications. So again, the answer to the question about if the Guardian may help with specific conditions—whatever they may be—is YES! [3:19]

Do you believe that any device can diagnose and treat the full gamut of disease? I do not. Nor do I believe that (a) individuals have a "bioenergetic signature," (b) the Guardian device can produce "amazing results," or (c) multiple diseases can be healed by signaling "the body's bioenergetic communication network." If you encounter a practitioner who uses the device, please write to me and file a complaint with your state attorney general.
