Bhupendra Theory of Waste-end Products (WEP)

Presented in Colombo and Beijing in 1983 and 1984 respectively


  • All living beings are fragments of a vast cosmic energy. They are influenced by environmental changes, while the bio-energy of living beings also influences cosmic energy through different electro-magnetic fields.

  • Our energy adapts to the shape of our physical body and stays the same even after the body has been destroyed, until that energy enters into another bodily form. As long as the energy stays in one bodily form, it is influenced by its surroundings at the biological level through many exogenous and endogenous factors.

  • Energy is a dynamic force in constant movement throughout the body.

  • The bio-energy is generated differently within each cell as per the chemistry of the cell, the nature of the cell, and the organ functions. This bio-energy, which is more or less mandatory for physical survival, after reacting with cosmic energy, forms an electro-magnetic field inside, as well as outside, the physical boQuantum character of any energy reaction generates different impulses of transient process. The chemical reaction based on different cellular structure of individual organ of the body generates positive or negative energies. These waves may be positive when chemical reaction irradiates energy, and negative when reaction absorbs energy.

  • Billions of impulses form a very complex picture of interferential waves in the body cellular structures. These interferential waves create lattice of energy density with different nodes at specific body organ based on its cellular structure. Low density stimulates the catabolic process (breakdown of complex molecules in living organism to release energy-a destructive metabolism), while high energy produces anabolic activities (synthesis of complex molecules in living organism from simpler ones resulting in storage of the energy).

  • The constant cyclic changes of energy density at every node of the body and type of metabolism (all the chemical process in a living organism producing energy and growth) are changing synchronously. The process of changing characters of energy in form of waves are balanced with the metabolic processes in the entire body system very precisely, simultaneously adjusting with the utmost accuracy of the atomic clock. If this process is not balanced accurately and the energy of waves and the energy of metabolism compensate with each other the vital oscillation will stop resulting in death.

  • The entire process of this energy movements are represented in form of different pulses in the living body. Pulse diagnosis is based on the pulse signal waves and parameters of interferential wave forms. Based on the specific areas in spaces of body we can determine the metabolic status of that organ. So the term such as high-low, fullness–emptiness, excess-deficient, and heat-cold are the representations of the character of metabolic functional activities and the status of vital energy of that body organ.

  • Food and water are not the source of inherent energy. The energy is embedded in a subtle form in the embryo, which possess congenital auto-rhythmicity. There is no difference between these energy centres in an embryo and in an adult.

  • Skin permeability and trillions of tiny pores act as windows in energy transaction.

  • The microcosm communicates with the macrocosm through the cosmic aura of the body. The body is in a position to withstand the subtle transaction in a state of health.

  • Whenever there is metabolic derangement due to many endogenous and exogenous factors the body is unable to withstand this sort of subtle transaction between microcosm and macrocosm.

Fundamental Concept of the Theory

  • The body is under constant exposure to many known and unknown endogenous and exogenous irritants and stimuli.

  • This result in a chain of chemical reactions generated from each and every cell of the body, in turn involving its structural and functional body organs.

  • The by-products of these long chained chemical reactions are expelled out from the body through urine, stool, sweat, expiration, and mucous, etc.

  • Since these by-products are being continuously produced in the body from the irritants to which we are constantly exposed such as sun, dust, clothing, and emotions, etc, the body needs a constant expulsion of theses waste products to maintain positive health.

  • These chemicals, which are released from different body organs, based on the nature of the irritants, are constantly broken down into end products through the enzymatic action of cells and are being constantly liberated through the skin permeability and numerous tiny skin pores.

  • This constant high velocity liberation of waste end-products due to friction forms an energy circle around the living physical body.

  • This bio-energy in turn forms an electro-magnetic field around the physical body maintaining an open communication with cosmic energy in health and disease.

  • The chemistry of WEP makes a person smell differently in health and disease, based on the nature of the irritants and body organ involved. Even different parts of the body smell differently, including sebaceous glands, based on their chemistry.

Body’s Chemical Defence System

  • The body’s defence mechanism is under constant stress and strain due to many exogenous and endogenous irritants which generate antigen and antibody reactions, leading to the release of many known and unknown chemicals, such as histamines, 5 hydroxytryptamines from platelets, and polypeptides such as pain-producing vasodilator Kinins from plasma.

  • At the time of physical and emotional trauma, capillary walls become sticky on the inside; platelets adhere, disintegrate, and release 5-HT. At first capillary permeability increases due to histamine release, and later to activation of protein permeability factor in plasma. 5-HT is a vasoconstrictor, hence the name serotonin, but in high concentration produces vasodilatation.

  • Kallidin is a polypeptide hormone formed by Kallikrein through the hydrolysis of a fragment of a polypeptide chain of a blood protein. Two more varieties are identified, Kallidin I (bradykinin), containing 9 amino acids, and Kallidin II, containing 10 amino acids.

  • Likewise, based on the situation, the body’s defence produces a chain of chemicals, some of which are excreted from the body through urine, sweat, stool etc. but in order to get rid of these waste products immediately the body breaks them down into smaller and still smaller molecules, and further into ionic form, through enzymatic action and these are constantly being liberated through numerous tiny skin pores and skin permeability, passing through fine arterioles and specific intracellular networks as per the organ involved.

Capillary Tone

  • The complex chemicals produced due to different types of stimuli increase the permeability of the capillary.

  • To study the phenomenon of capillary permeability, India ink was injected into the vessels of a resting muscle, and on section, few capillaries could be seen on examination, and most were very narrow.

  • Large doses of histamine injections revealed more dilated and blood filled capillaries. If this situation remains for too long it may cause circulatory failure due to not enough blood in the veins.

  • Normal capillary tone is thus important, and is controlled by situational physical and chemical agents, which are further broken down into WEP to be quickly released from the body to avoid further accumulation, as they are constantly being produced in the body.

  • Every person liberates different types of WEP from different body areas based on his/her lifestyle, food habits, surroundings, and the nature of energy one possesses.

Healthy Halo

  • In a healthy person in a conducive environment, this process goes on uninterrupted, forming a healthy halo or aura around the physical body.

  • In a sick person, the overproduction of a particular form of WEP involving specific organs causes stagnation and overcrowding of WEP, jamming the passage, resulting in a broken or irregular body aura.

  • This makes a person look sick, dull, and faded and liberates an abnormal smell. The author, based on his vast clinical experience, can diagnose many diseases, such as smallpox, tetanus, and leucoderma, just by smell.

  • Specific WEP, released from a particular organ due to specific stimuli, pass through a set pattern of deeply integrated body networks of channels or meridians, to be liberated from specific areas.

Disease Pattern

  • Any endogenous or exogenous stimuli, when it becomes a constant focus of irritation to any particular body organ, results in an overproduction of certain WEP, leading to a blockage of the channel pathway and pores, due to overcrowding. This load of chemicals not being released from the body interferes with the normal functioning of the organ, making it sick.

  • At this stage, the body tries to compensate by transferring these WEP to different pathway through fine collaterals for quick disposal. If the stimulus is not very strong, the disease is overpowered and the person feels better.

  • In another situation, if the stimulus is stronger and sustained, disease sets in and later involves other pathways, resulting in interference of other organs.

  • Acupuncture helps in the release of these blocked WEP at specific points.

  • Some acupuncture points get discoloured, nodular, and tender, based on the nature of accumulated WEP and the organ involved.

Specific WEP

  • Different types of WEP are liberated through set channels and specific skin areas.

  • For example, WEP which are the product of severe allergic reactions of the body involve the reticulo-endothelial system, especially the spleen, and are liberated from a wide area on the skin, forming rashes, urticarea, and hives, due to their excessive accumulation under the skin. Itching helps in dispersing these locally stagnated WEP. By pulse diagnosis one can know the stagnation of Qi in a specific organ, and thus help in relief.

  • Those WEP which are responsible for the release of certain pain-inducing neurotransmitters pass through a specific network of channels and are finally liberated from certain skin areas, and when blocked due to overproduction, can be released by puncturing these specific areas on the body surface.

  • The Back-shu and Mu-front points are in direct communication with specific organs, so are immediately blocked and get pigmented, discoloured, tender, or nodular. Puncturing these points helps in the quick liberation of WEP.

Colour, Velocity and Chemistry of WEP

This will depend on the following factors:

  • Chemical nature and extent of the irritant
  • Nature of the cell and organ involved
  • State of the internal energy of the cell and organ
  • Specific functions of the cells dealing with the irritants
  • Extent of the organ involved
  • Changing chemistry and polar energy of the organ
  • Existing endogenous and exogenous factors
  • Personal energy pattern type
  • Food habits
  • Geographical distribution
  • Hormonal interference
  • Interference with other irritants or other physiological reactions
  • Temperature fluctuations, etc.


  • By tracing the disturbed aura and its colour in relation to acupuncture terminal points, meridian proximity, and organ topographical situation, the root cause of the disease and its pattern can be diagnosed.

  • Chemical analytical study of specific WEP can help in tracing the type of irritant and organ involved. This can be a great breakthrough in understanding the etiological factors and basic pathogenesis of many diseases which still remain obscure.

  • Once the chemistry of various WEP are established to a great extent, though it will keep changing as per the person’s body response to different stimulus, it will help to confirm the diagnosis of a diseased aura.

Basic Mechanism of Acute Illness

  • WEP are produced during all routine physiological and metabolic body functions.

  • Whenever there is excess production of toxic substances in the body due to sustained strong irritants and those toxins which can’t be converted into end-products due to sudden over production, the body tries to expel them through various other routes.

  • Sudden excessive sweating, quick breathing, coughing, increased bladder and bowel movement are a few examples.

  • Every cell and organ have a different chemistry based on the functions they perform, and they react differently to the same irritant and produce specific WEP to a particular irritant. These WEP are liberated from the body through the organ channels and have a distinct smell, based on the chemistry of the organ and the chemical reaction.

  • Each organ is associated with specific irritants and deals with them. Every irritant affects each body cell and produces different WEP.

Application of WEP theory

  • By producing a graph on the screen of different electromagnetic wave forms, and with the help of measured comparative studies of a normal healthy WEP graph, a whole body diagnosis can be made. The patient will lay in an electromagnetically sensitive chamber, which will collect all form of waves from the body and project them on the screen in a graph form.

  • Some work has been done with German and Indian collaboration which could not be continued due to lack of funds, proper equipment, and communication problems.

Clinical Importance of the Theory

  • Early Diagnosis
  • Accurate indication of the organ involved
  • Severity of the problem
  • Nature of the disease
  • Stage of the disease
  • Response to treatment
  • Change of energy pattern can be measured topographically
  • Preventive, diagnostic, and prognostic applications
  • On the basis of this theory the exact mechanism of many healing systems can be better understood, such as Yoga, Physiotherapy, Massage, Acupuncture, Acupressure, and Osteopathy, etc.
  • This theory is an attempt to bring spirituality and science closer while providing a common inter-explainable foundation in health and in dis-ease.
