I first consulted Nicolai for my chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) in 1994. This had been diagnosed by two medical homeopaths who were expert with a variation of the Voll diagnostic device. They had each, independently, found inflammatory pathology in the same major organ systems: the heart, lungs, liver, and prostate. Pathologic structural changes in the heart were demonstrated by electrocardiogram. Although I did not inform him of these findings, other than my fatigue, Nicolai made the same diagnoses within 10 minutes during his initial examination.
