Can Computer Meridian Diagnostic be useful in diagnosis and management of diseases?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The need for the development of appropriate guidelines for effective or safe use of antioxidants and herbs has always been a concern, especially for the alternative medicine practices. Computer Meridian Diagnostic (CMD) is one of emerging computer-based diagnostic technologies available to alternative medicine practitioners. However, case report of the agents monitored with CMD is uncommon; and concerted effort to bring this into conventional medical practice is yet to be. This hypothesis builds on an anecdotal observation of anti-stress effect monitored with CMD, with a view to highlight a potential tool that requires expatiation, as well as proof of concept and validation studies for possible integration in conventional and traditional medicine practices for therapeutic monitoring.
