The starting point of the ACR Institute dates back a good while ago, when Christian was working as a journalist at the Sud Ouest newspaper in Bordeaux, France. During this time, a little before he was to go to Medical School in Paris, he was contacted by the Editor in Chief of the Boston Globe who wrote asking him to investigate the Antoine Prioré electro-magnetic cancer machine which had shown unexplained cancer remissions in many animals. (1)
Having examined Antoine Prioré’s machine at his home area in Floriac Bordeaux, and having fully covered this story, Christian realized how much the subject of cancer was connected to dogma, corporate interests, People’s fears, attitude and scientific bias.
Despite much support for this “cancer machine”, from General De Gaulle’s daughter, Bordeaux’ major, prominent physicians and politicians, Priorés’ human clinical trials were eventually discontinued. (2)
Thereafter, Christian went to the Faculté de Médecine Pierre et Marie Curie and the Ecole d’acupuncture de France in Paris, (3) during which time he continued his research in electro-medicine.
As the years unfolded, Christian met many patients, therapists, health practitioners, medical doctors and oncologists who alleged that not only pulsed electro-magnetic energy (e.g. “pemf”), but also milli-current (“tens” machine), micro-current (“mens” machines), pico-current (4) and other frequencies (5), had a favorable impact on the control and reversal potential of cancer’s malignant invasiveness, in particular via the anti-inflammatory pathway.
Confirming these claims, it was shown that ultra-low intensity and frequency pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs) did destroy breast cancer cells without harming the healthy cells.
“We observed a discrete window of vulnerability of MCF7 cells to PEMFs of 20 Hz frequency, 3 mT magnitude and exposure duration of 60 minutes per day. The cell damage accrued in response to PEMFs increased with time and gained significance after three days of consecutive daily exposure. By contrast, the PEMFs parameters determined to be most cytotoxic to breast cancer MCF-7 cells were not damaging to normal MCF-10 cells”. (6)
Futhermore, different animal and human studies have suggested that acupuncture worked via the inflammatory and immunomodulation pathways, that which impacted cytokines including interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha). (7)
Still other studies have shown that acupuncture has been associated with significant changes in proinflammatory cytokines including IL-1-beta, IL-6, IL-17 and TNF-alpha. (8)
Even better, a few health practitioners claimed electro-acupuncture could actually shrink malignant tumors, a claim that is substantiated ty the scientific literature.
“Twice weekly treatment produced robust reductions in tumor growth. (…) We further demonstrate that EA-2X/3 treatment elicits significant reductions in tumor lymphatics, vasculature, and innervation. Lastly, EA-2X/3 treatment produced a marked reduction in pulmonary metastasis, thus providing evidence for EA’s potential antimetastatic capabilities. Collectively, EA-2X/3 treatment was found to reduce both bone tumor growth and lung metastasis, which may be mediated in part through reductions in tumor-associated vasculature, lymphatics, and innervation.” (9)
Now, when we combine acupuncture, and its derivatives (acupressure, auriculotherapy and electro-acupuncture) to photo-therapies (herbs, including Chinese and Tibetan herbs), heat and other metabolic holistic techniques, the results can be even better.

PRECISION AND REFERENCE NOTES
(1). Priore built a series of electromagnetic devices producing a strong magnetic field of 600 gauss (60 mT) or more for the purpose of treating cancer and disease. His last device was funded by the French government with the help of one-time Prime Minister of France Jacques Chaban-Delmas, thanks to which he was able to built a larger device (eg the M-600) for the purpose of treating people with cancer.

(2). Prioré reported to have treated a number of animals with cancer with his device. Bird, Christopher. The Case of Antoine Prioré and His Therapeutic Machine: A Scandal in the Politics of Science. 1984. Immunologist Raymond Pautrizel and Robert Courier, former secretary of the French Academy of Sciences, published a series of notes on Prioré’s research in the proceedings of the French Academy. (Ibid., Graille) Pautrizel, an apologist, classified Prioré’s methodology as immunological in nature, since animals inoculated with deadly doses of parasites were reportedly healed with Prioré radiation. According to Bird , a supporter, Priore’s methodology was also characterized by boosting subjects’ immune systems, allowing them to heal themselves of incurable diseases.

Auriculotherapy (acupuncture of the ear), of French origine, was practiced in France by non medical healers (guérisseurs) and developed into a coherent medical discipline by Dr Paul Nogier.
