In an ideal world, the Calif. board would demand new tests of the e-meter for medical effects. The FDA tested the e-meter in the 1960's with old-fashioned testing tools, and found no medical effects, which led the way for them to accept the e-meter as a "spiritual device." However, testing tools for micro-currents have become much more sophisticated, and the FDA now accepts that micro-currents have medical effects. Other states, or even the feds, might follow Calif's lead. It would be the end of CoS if Calif. and Florida required that the e-meter could only be prescribed by a medical doctor like a psychiatrist, and not on anyone under 18.
Some micro-current devices have been accepted for many years for depression, pain, and other ailments. How does the current in these devices compare with the e-meter?
Just today, Tony Ortega reported Mace-Kingsley offers auditing for children.(5) If there is a narcotic effect from 200 to 300 microamps from Alpha-Stims and CES Ultra, then somebody should research narcotic effects from the 200 to 300 microamps on the e-meter. It's creepy to think Scientology parents may be dosing their kids with electro-narcotics when they make them get audited!Most people use 200 to 300 microamperes for CES treatment.(2)CES Ultra electrical output is in the Microcurrent range (10 to 600 microamperes). (3)The E-meter can expose the human body with a left hand to right hand current up to 300 Micro Amps. 1/3rd of the value that is generally considered noticeable by a person.(4)
