Blending the Senses: Medical Intuitive Sees Disease?
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Preventative medicine is your best strategy for long term health. However, regular screenings can only catch so much, unless perhaps your doctor is a "medical intuitive." One man has received some national attention for his claims that he can diagnose your health problems by simply looking at you.
Gabby Rodriguez didn't know what to expect when she called medical intuitive John Kortum. "I saw him on Dr. Oz," Gabby said.
John told her something was going on with her blood.
"I was able to take that and go back to my doctor and ask for some further testing," Gabby said.
Testing by her doctor revealed an autoimmune disease. John says much like how we know boiling water is hot without having to touch it, he perceives textured properties on the face, each are linked to an organ system.
"This biological language lives within you and it's your body's way of expressing imbalances," John Kortum, medical intuitive and developer of the Kortum Health Assessment Technique said
. Take a thyroid problem, John perceives a sponge like texture on the cheeks.
For issues with the breasts, "I perceive a vertical texture," John explained.
After taking his course, Pamela Feikbeiner realized she had a left breast indicator. A biopsy by her doctor revealed, "the cancer that's in the milk ducts itself," Pamela said.
We put John's technique to the test. Neysa Ricciardi has never met John.
"I am fascinated to see what he can come up with," Neysa said.
"There's a little bit of a hearing indication. It's not bad," John explained after looking at Neysa.
Neysa says her ears have been ringing.
"You've got a mild liver indication," John continued.
John also picks up on a digestion problem.
"I have had severe reflux in the past," Neysa admitted.
"I perceive a thyroid indication," John said.
Yes, Neysa does have hypothyroidism. The only thing he missed?
"He didn't pick up on adrenal and I've also been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue," Neysa explained.
So, is he a medical prophet or just out for a profit? If you're interested in getting a consult with Kortum, it'll cost you $495. That's not covered by health insurance. There are many doctors who aren't supporters of medical intuitivism. However, researchers put the Kortum technique to the test in a study in Bethesda, Maryland, in 2001. The 16 month study took patients with documented diseases and had john assess them. He was found to have a 93 percent accuracy rate.
