When you are testing are you using the biophonic instrument in your office?
Jelstrup: I usually cross-reference the information I get. My primary testing is through biophonics, and biophonics is nothing more then a simple device which helps me to enhance my palpatory skills. Based upon a concept which was developed about 25 years ago, by I believe the department of medical engineering in Colorado, they found the body would exhibit stress in the microwave range. If your joints were stressed, they would exhibit microwave radiation from those points. They determined the radiation to be in the gigahertz range, and we human beings can sense this, if we use a simple biofeedback device. You have your hands and your head that sense it through working with a simple biofeedback device. This system we call Biophonics.
Interviewer: Why ‘the phonics? Where is the sound coming from?
Jelstrup: The sound is in the friction plate, touched by the hands. When we elicit friction, we can start to approach making observations, make certain conclusions. This is one testing system. We immediately correlate this with the appropriate muscle testing, or palpation for pain, or leg checks. There are other means of structural observations. We use biophonics as a rapid way of accessing information on, shall we say, an elementary level. We correlate two or three systems of analysis before we arrive at a conclusion.
Interviewer: How long have you been using this system of observation?
Jelstrup: I have been doing it now for the last 25 years.
Interviewer: So you are pretty pleased with it?
Jelstrup: I am extremely pleased with the system. As a matter of fact, my colleague Jeanne Kreider teaches this work nationally and internationally. It is good work and it is wide open to whoever wants to learn it.

Interviewer: Now how does bio-phonics relate to CRA (contact reflex analysis*) which I also understand you and Jeanne Kreider use at the Bellevue Wellness Center
Jelstrup: CRA is another system of analysis, developed by Dr. Versandal. He is a chiropractor who observed that when one is in distress; there is a pattern of radiation emitted from the body. You can learn to detect this. You can use applied kinesiological testing procedures to access these points, and to read out what the body is saying. I find it a very good analytical system and am using it to quite an extent in the clinic as part of my overall observation. It is not the complete technique we do.
You can access – instead of using applied kinesiological testing, you can use bio-phonics to access these points, which I may call the Versandal points. Versandal spent 40+ years mapping out this system, He got some of his information, I believe, from Dr. Riddler who was a naturopath, as well as from many other chiropractors making similar observations. He put the information together into a system called CRA* and I have nothing but praise for his work. I have great respect for this man. It is a technique but you can take this system and integrate it with other systems. It all depends on how deep you want to go in your observation of the body
There is no doubt in my mind you can get some of the deepest and most profound information from the human being by simple testing methods which only cost a few dollars. It is all in how you are trained to access the body which I will touch on a little bit later in this conversation.
