Flow Systems Primer

If you don’t want problems with your health, then choose to be healthy!

Because if you’re healthy, you can’t be sick!


Homeostasis This is the ability of cells and organisms to maintain balance by adjusting physiological processes.

Your body’s internal homeostatic controls are like teeter-totters that can move when needed between healthy physiological bounds—in Chinese medicine this is the yin and yang of healthy expression.

When a core homeostatic control gets stuck or is allowed to move beyond its norms without a corresponding ability to return where it should, adaptive capacity can be lost and health begins to fail.

Research in physiology tells us where balance points should be for different measures of health and those measures of health taken in the context of how to manage them is applied physiology.  

When measurement shows that homeostatic controls are moving away from balance, it is a sign that adaptive capacity for vibrant health is being affected. If affected enough along the right pathway, ALL manner of issues and even events classified as disease can set in.  

There is no disease process that does not effect in some manner a change in homeostatic control.

Monitoring the body’s homeostatic controls and taking safe corrective action as needed is the most effective way to maintain health - and to help regain health if it has been lost.

Proper measurement of your physiology is key because,

you cannot manage what you do not measure.

Your body is a unique electrical and biological “flow” system. From the blood, to the tissue, to the innards of every cell in your body, the flow of life is moving with the flow of electrons.

We are all made up of the dirt of the earth, lifted you might say from the periodic table of the elements. You are an electric wonder. From the neurons in your brain to the twitch in your muscle to the pulse of an electrocardiogram, there is a lot going on, and what is going on can be observed, measured, and managed for your optimal wellness.

The measurement and auditing of this life flow is appropriately called Flow System Auditing.  

Flow System Auditing is not diagnostic in nature nor is it a laboratory medical process for any analytical purpose, it is simply taking a look at physiology through your body’s natural feedback mechanisms using tools of science. In the hands of a skilled practitioner, insights can be gained and shared so you can make more intelligent decisions about how you might gain more adaptive capacity and dynamic health in your life at all levels.

This is a rundown of Flow Systems Auditing from the picture to the math….

A world of understanding awaits when you take a fantastic voyage into the microscopic world of your own blood. Using one of the most sensational forms of health education available, Flow Systems Auditing will intimately show you your own real time, right now, “situational physiology” as observed in your blood using Biomedx high powered biological video microscopes. Through guided observation with an experienced “tour guide”, you will begin to gain deeper understanding of what health is and how you can go about asserting your newly gained knowledge for transforming your physiology for maximum gains in health & life performance.


There is something more important than just genes to determining health realities.

In the 19th century French physiologist Claude Bernard stressed how the  “terrain is everything”. From that time up through the genome project and to the 21st century work of cell biologists are providing new ways of understanding health and healing. A new dawn is arising before us.

We all can tap into that level of excitement right now with a microscopic journey into our own inner world.

Flow System Auditing allows people to take a quantum leap in understanding biology and their own health.

The quantitative aspect of Flow Systems Auditing takes specific measures of urine, saliva, blood pressure, pulse and more and audits for specific response. If a measure under or over performs beyond the physiological bounds where the best health is known to exist, then appropriate corrective action can be taken. This action does not entail “treatment” for symptoms, conditions or disease, but instead applies scientific realities and known safe pathways to reestablish and strengthen adaptive capacity, which in turn supports the body’s natural ability to self-heal and provides the framework for maximum performance.

You are an electrical being. Every activity in your body happens because of the movement of electrons. It is the minerals that you get from the food that you eat that gives you the foundation that you need to support your electrical life processes. Minerals=electricity and it is electricity that runs your body.

In the electrical repair business, if you had a radio that was not functioning, the first thing that the repair man would investigate is the POWER that runs the radio. There has to be electricity put to the circuits—and not too much or too little. The same reasoning can be practically applied to the human condition.

Electricity—by way of electrolytes—can be too much or too little for optimal physiological function. If so, it can alter all forms of measurement from simple pH readings to blood pressures and pulse. Flow Systems Auditing looks at specific mechanical measures of blood pressure, pulse, and specific electrical measures of urine and saliva to gain insights into your body’s “power” system. This is critical to know because just like the electrical repairman, if he were to fix something down the line without first investigating the power situation up front, he could blow up a circuit or completely fail to fix the problem at the source.

Physiologically, if your power system is out of whack it could mean many things.


Chronic fatigue

Muscular weakness



Decreased libido

Poor circulation

Low self assurance


Accelerated aging

Too Little Electricity—Electrolyte Deficiency

High blood pressure

Blood flocculation

Hard beating heart

Heart stress

Kidney stress

Myelin deterioration

Excess nerve stimulation

Hyperactive disorders

High cholesterol


Too Much Electricity—Electrolyte Stress

Your body is a unique electrical and biological flow system. The diagram above could be called the ground matrix of this flow system—it represents the activity at the cellular level of your body where all things happen and can exist either in a state of optimal function, or not. From the blood stream that carries inbound oxygen and nutrients to every cell to outbound carbon dioxide and wastes, electrons traverse from the blood to the interstitial (in-between) spaces around the cell to the inside of the cell and back out again. It is a constant ebb and flow. This ebb and flow establishes the circadian rhythm of your life. The most important regulator of this circadian rhythm is the dynamic makeup of the membrane of the cell itself.

Cell membranes are composed of lipids (fats). These are further broken down into fatty acids and sterols and due to their specific electrical charge nature, these fats arrange themselves a bit differently in the membrane structure. When properly balanced, communication and physiological events happen in balance.

When a quantitative issue arises of excess sterol activity vs. fatty acid activity at the membrane level, or a qualitative issue of fat dynamics (good fats vs. bad fats) arises (either due to diet or other mitigating circumstances), cell membranes can become locked up and physiological events go askew. This locked up state predisposes one to see an overly anabolic and more anaerobic (without oxygen) cell process occurring.

Just the opposite can occur when a quantitative issue arises of excess fatty acid activity vs. sterol activity at the membrane level, or a qualitative issue arises. Cell membranes can become too porous and physiological events go askew. This open state predisposes one to see an overly catabolic and dysaerobic (oxygen out of control) issue occurring with cellular processes.

Specific Flow System measures of urine and saliva - like pH, surface tension, electrical conductivity - and blood pressure, pulse, temperature and more, can begin to define the state of your cells membranes which begin to define your circadian rhythm, which begin to define the operation of your cells, which begin to define any issues with your tissues—which ultimately drive symptoms, conditions & diseases into being.


Too many sterols



Too many fatty acids



Inducing - sustaining for:

Viruses, bacteria, chronic fatigue, sleep, constipation, polyuria, tachycardia, hypertension, osteoarthritis, lactic acid, seizures, solid tumor cancers...

Inducing - sustaining for:

Insomnia, diarrhea, oliguria, bradycardia, hypotension, rheumatoid arthritis, rapid aging, MS, gall bladder colic, colitis, crohn’s, psioriasis, CVD, non-solid tumor cancers...

Positively and negatively charged mineral components establish the “power” (homeostatic control #1) to do work. In the process of working they traverse membranes between fluid compartments (homeostatic control #2) and establish proper equilibrium to create an internal environment inside the cell that supports mitochondrial function which directly delivers energy that drives your very being (homeostatic control #3).

Mitochondria is an intracellular bacteria which possesses a mechanism (the krebs cycle) whose end-product is ATP

(Adenosine TriPhosphate).

ATP = The Energy that
Runs Your Body

FAT & SUGAR is the fuel that mitochondria uses to generate ATP.

The beta-oxidation metabolic pathway uses fat.

The tricarboxylic acid metabolic pathway uses carbohydrates.

If the internal cellular environment goes askew in energy production and the mitochondria falls short in being able to utilize fat or sugar in your diet, then the energy which runs every cell in your body suffers. This can first and foremost, effect brain function at many levels. Next it can effect energy for everyday tasks. It can compromise immune function. It can shift cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, body temperature and more.



(Burns fats over carbs)

Inducing for:



Low body temp

High serum pH

High blood sugar

High triglycerides

Bilirubin in urine - liver overload

Ketones in urine most anytime


(Burns carbs over fat)

Inducing for:



Low body temp

Low serum pH

Low blood sugar

High cholesterol

Bilirubin in urine - gall stones

Ketones in urine after not eating

The Autonomic Nervous System encompasses your sympathetic and parasympathetic response mechanisms. Sympathetic has been called the fight or flight response and parasympathetic the rest and digest. When imbalances occur here, it can lead to all sorts of issues, not the least of which are physical responses related to disturbances in body temperature, pupil size, salivary output, vascular constriction, digestion, asthma and allergies to name a few.

Hydrogen. The most plentiful element. 91% of everything in your body combines with it in some way. It is measured on a pH scale and when hydrogen goes in one direction its measure is called acid and if it goes in another, alkaline. pH is like the tail of a big biochemical dog. Homeostatic controls 1 thru 4 are what move that tail to and fro and Flow Systems Auditing uncovers those connections helping you to master your body’s acid and alkaline balance.

While you can engage your mind in understanding more about your health through taking that fantastic voyage into your living blood, and dynamically assist your homeostatic controls for balance, the power of your innate intelligence at known and unknown levels to assist your quest for health cannot be denied. It is here where practitioners of Flow Systems Auditing may bring special tools to help you integrate hemispheric brain function, help establish brain/body communication at new levels, and assist in letting you experience all that “flow” really means.

Prioritization in Practice

While homeostatic controls 4 & 5 are lower in number, they are no less important than controls 1 thru 3. However, balancing what is above often corrects that which is below.  

The pivotal textbooks previously mentioned along with some other key texts supply the right information.

Assimilated within the proper context, it provides a guide to measure and manage the biological individuality of the person now, versus throwing them into the idea of the day to see what works. This is Flow System Auditing, a new wellness paradigm for the 21st century.

Cellular Currency

Mitochondria produces the cellular currency that makes “life” happen at the cell level which ultimately is all about the 50 trillion cells of what is you.

While problems with homeostatic control #1 can kill you in a heartbeat, and homeostatic control #2 is all about issues with your tissues, it’s homeostatic control #3 that can make your life a joy with abundant energy or a miserable road to hoe with all manner of problems that arise when cell energy goes low.

Membrane or Membrain

Yes we have a brain in our heads. There are also 50 trillion cells in our biology that have a unique lipid structure that is also enmeshed with receptor proteins. Yep, it’s 50 trillion cells that make up who we are and also determine how we experience our environment. You might call it the mem-brain collective.

Vortex—Flow of Life

The fluid compartment of the blood is a dynamo of activity of 19 suspended major and minor minerals and more. It’s a colloidal suspension of dynamic proportion under the control of zeta potential.

The applied knowledge of biophysics inherent in Flow Auditing brings new understanding to anions, cations, and the vortex flow of the blood’s fluid movement for the utmost in cardiovascular wellness.

The above texts overlaid upon basic medical and nursing skill books on fluid and electrolyte control.

Recognition of adaptive capacity has its grounding in textbook physiology and biochemistry.  

In medical school the jump to practical applications of these sciences for wellness is often short circuited as training is diverted to a more pharmaceutical approach to treating symptoms, conditions, and diseases.

While this approach is well supported by government and an insurance driven marketplace, it comes at a loss of sometimes more practical interventions science might suggest if drugs were not the answer.

Flow Systems Auditing reconnects the everyday wellness issues people have back to science and logic.

The result? Less costly intervention and healthier people.
