Yamarnoto’s new scalp acupuncture and Su Jok therapy, as well as other microsystems of acupuncture, are based on a common bioholographic principle. The ECIWO theory ex-plains this on a general biological basis: Each part of the organism has an embryological potential and contains informattion of the whole organism. This multilevel structuring of the organism in ECIWOs explains, according to the theory, why we can use these different microsystems both for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The therapeutic effect of these microsystems, or bioholographic acupuncture systems , is now well documented through clinical research. How to explain this within a more general biomedical framework is, however, as yet an open question. The structuring of the body in ECIWOs has an obvious cybernetic function, serving to strengthen the functional integrity of the organism through its activity and contact with the external world. This explains how we selectively may stimulate healing processes and promote physiological homeostasis through bioholographic therapy. It is, therefore reasonable to regard the bioholographic structuring of the organism as part of a general healing system of the organism.
Such a pancybernetic system of the ECIWOs will function at organic levels above the cellular level. It does not explain organic repair processes at the biomolecular and intracellular level. The possibility of formulating a more general theory of the healing system, including also biomolecular and intracellular processes, is discussed on the basis of present biophysical theories. Such a general theory of the healing system would have holonomic properties in agreement with David Bohm’s theory of the implicate order.
