Medical Tricorda

Published on January 26, 2012


Qualcomm is a company offering researchers $10 million to make science fiction into reality. The Qualcomm Tricorder X PRIZE will reward the team or researcher who is capable of producing a device that essentially copies the functions of a “Star Trek” medical tricorder. The company is offering the incentive to encourage the invention. The researchers must successfully use it to diagnose 15 diseases among 30 people to win the competition.[1]

The device will need to have the ability to accurately measure multiple vital signs while taking up a minimum amount of space. If a team is able to create this, it will supposedly change the healthcare industry and give back control to the consumers.

The company has claimed the device will give consumers the power to constantly monitor their own health and diagnose their own diseases. The ability to simply scan the body without the need for invasive procedures or expensive tests is a great idea and is actually at the heart of Natural Allopathic Medicine.

The problem is that the vitals they are thinking about will not help anyone. Will it measure magnesium, bicarbonate and iodine deficiencies and general malnutrition? Will it tell people how poisoned they are with heavy metals, chemicals and radioactive particles? Or how stressed out they are and how their brain patterns and function are effected?

The allopathic medical philosophy taught at most medical schools and practiced by the majority of medical doctors relies on the concept of identifying diseases or symptoms, and then prescribing drugs or surgery to manage or combat those symptoms. As practiced, it is a system that considers the disease or symptom to be the actual problem, as opposed to addressing the underlying causes that produced the disease or symptom in the first place.

The entire way contemporary medicine views and diagnoses disease is on quicksand as the most recent changes about autism and its diagnosis demonstrates. Proposed changes in the definition of autism would sharply reduce the skyrocketing rate at which the disorder is diagnosed and might make it harder for many people who would no longer meet the criteria to get health, educational and social services, a new analysis suggests. Just what parents of autistic children need! Official medicine is desperate to reduce the numbers and it is not interested in curing any diseases; it is only interested in treating them as profitably as possible.

Just to prove my point, “The changes would narrow the diagnosis so much that it could effectively end the autism surge,” said Dr. Fred R. Volkmar, director of the Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine and an author of the new analysis of the proposal. “We would nip it in the bud.” They believe you can just change the diagnostic criteria and presto no more disease. Simply incredible!

It is now estimated that one in three children
born in 2000 will have diabetes in their lives—this
makes it soon-to-be the most prevalent chronic disease.
– Dr. Francine Kaufman
– Professor of Pediatrics, Keck School of Medicine

I have no idea how a medical tricorder will change this estimate. The entire framework of medicine needs to change in order to affect a change in what is happening to the human race. It needs to understand that its assumptions about health and disease are erroneous and get to work studying the actual causes of disease.

Oriental doctors and acupuncturists don’t need a tricorda. They know how to look at a patient, know what questions to ask; they can take a person’s pulse, look at their tongue and know what to do.

All a practitioner of Natural Allopathic Medicine needs to do to know about a person’s magnesium levels is to ask if they eat any white foods and how frequently. Heavy reliance on white rice, white bread, white sugar, white pasta and even white salt ALWAYS leads to steep magnesium and other mineral deficiencies.

If a doctor has learned anything about the realities of disease and what is causing them, they would easily know where to begin their treatments. A tricorder would be no replacement for simple and inexpensive pH paper. Contemporary medicine is simply a lost cause with doctors not knowing how to punch their way out of their pharmaceutical bags.

It would seem this fantasy of a medical tricorder might be a step in the right direction. But would it have any effect on the many alarming trends in pediatric care currently taking place, not the least of which is increasing radiation exposure? It is now estimated that that the average child will get more than seven radiation scans by age 18 and this does not include dental X-rays. Most alarming is the increasing use of CT scans, which entail far more radiation and can raise the risk for cancer in children. X-rays of the chest, hand and foot are the most common. Forty-two percent of children had at least one radiation procedure and 25 percent had two or more during the three-year study period. Eight percent of the children got at least one CT scan. And more than three percent of children got two or more CT scans.

Modern medicine is traveling down a deadly path. Morgues are full of people who are being killed not only by properly-prescribed medicine but also by doctors’ diagnostic procedures and medical errors.[2]

    The day after I read this article, I came across
    NES MiHealth which is a hand-held, pocket-sized, intelligent multi-functional instrument for healthcare practitioners. I can tell you nothing about this device, except that it sort of sounds like a Tricorder. I’m also not sure on how this device is based on the larger concept of NES. You’ll need to look it up.

    Dr Sicus, if you are not familiar with NES, please get a hold of the book by Peter Frazer, “Decoding the Human Body Field”, and find out about the incredible work he’s done learning to use information to help a body to reorganise back to “normal”. I can’t vouche for the effectiveness of the work, but perhaps you, being trained in Chinese medicine, are in a better position than myself to judge. Dr Frazer was (is?) a respected practitioner and teacher of both homeopathy and Chinese medicine.

    Reducing the parameters for autism may be more profitable, but likely such will be increased for “mental illnesses” which is (surprise) more profitable.

    Dr. Sircus, with your vision you exceed our future envelope … yet again.
    My question is, can Spock’s tricorder detect “hyperpharmacopia” or other iatrogenic causes of death, read the proper pH or voltage of a body? Surely this is Heresy! Off with my head.

    Thanks for all your benevolent work informing us.

    An ER doc that I worked with a few years back was a huge star trek fan and someone got him a tricorder as a joke present. We had a drunk guy in a treatment room and Jim began to walk around him with the tricorder which made interesting noises as he pushed the buttons. I thought the guy was going to run out of there.
    If someone makes one for real it should be… vewy vewy quiet..

    I am a Biokinesiologist. I am beginning to believe that more and more problems are caused by what we are taking into, or putting on, our bodies and not what we are lacking. For example, if you have a shoulder problem you might think you need a particular food supplement and lots of it to correct the problem. That may be true if your body is requiring more of the food supplement in order to correct the problem caused by your deodorant. The solution is to eliminate the deodorant, not take extra supplements. The reason I comment on this is due to a recent article from Like most people, I thought whole grain wheat flour was good for me. No so, it appears that wheat has been hybridized and selective bred so that it little resembles the grain that our forefathers ate. The human body isn’t designed to handle it. I have also read that rye was the grain eaten by the people that settled the United States. Wheat is a recent introduction that our body has yet to adopt to in order to handle it properly. This means a lot of problems for our human body until the process of adoption iis complete. Is this why high-wheat diets have been liked to obesity, digestive disease, arthritis, diabetes, dementia, and heart disease?


    after this we can talk further.
