In 2001, John approached the conventional medical community for evaluation with scientific protocols in place. A Clinical Professor of Medicine from George Washington University Medical Center and Adjunct Professor of Biophysics from Georgetown University School of Medicine, and an Adult Nurse Practitioner and Gestalt Therapist in Bethesda, Maryland observed John’s performance in a clinical environment. He was not allowed to speak to patients about their symptoms or complaints and did not have access to their health histories. He achieved 93% accuracy for correctly identifying previoulsy conventionally diagnosed health imbalances by only looking at patients.
The Kortum Technique is a term adopted by the medical research team who witnessed John’s intuitive performance in the Bethesda medical office. He identifies the quality of health by simply observing a person’s physical presence—often before an MRI, X-ray, Mammogram, or laboratory tests can detect any irregularities. His work also supports the healing process by identifying observable responses to conventional medical, pharmaceutical, or complimentary treatments. As testing continued, John recognized he could teach others how to see biological irregularities. He offers workshops that develop skills to recognize the human body’s visible indicators of health.
In his book, The Kortum Technique: How to Access the Human Body’s Natural Blueprint for Health and Healing, John introduces the perceptual terminology of Indicator Topography, Kinesthetic Simulation, and Sensory Aspect Ratio. He explains the theoretical framework with illustrations that form the foundation of the visual assessment process. His perceptual technique also uncovers clues that may lead to early diagnosis and treatment of complex illness such as cancer and heart disease.
The result of John’s lifelong journey is an intuitively based, teachable medical assessment technique. He works with clients when conventional methods fail to identify the source of health imbalances. His breakthrough method serves as a medical modem to bring you into a personal, experiential relationship with your body system and reveals the unconscious motivations of health imbalances.
