News channels have alerted the public to the rising number of deaths from the use of opioids—a class of drugs that encompasses both prescription and street-use. The FDA in the United States has approved an electronic, a CES (Cranial Electro Stimulation) type device, “to reduce the symptoms of opioid withdrawal”.
While CES devices have had approval for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety and depression, this is the first electronic device to be approved to treat addictions. Back in January 1983, Omni magazine featured how rock musician Peter Townshend, after treatment by British physician, Dr. Meg Patterson overcame his addiction without withdrawal symptoms. Since then a wealth of research has been conducted using CES. Dr. Ray Smith, a pioneer in the field, published several research studies showing the effectiveness of CES devices. Informal reports (testimonials) have surfaced over the years indicating CES can be an effective treatment for drug withdrawal.

Using frequencies to balance brain function has been well-researched for decades using Cranial Electro Stimulation (CES) devices similar to Bob Beck’s Brain Tuner.
Research at Boston University is using specific alternating current or frequencies to control brain function in two fundamental brain areas—the medial frontal cortex and the lateral prefrontal cortex. The research suggests that the use of high-definition transcranial alternating current stimulation (HD-tACS) shows promise to replace prescription drugs with fewer potential side-effects.
CES is approved by the FDA for anxiety, depression and insomnia, allowing these conditions to be handled without the use of drugs. CES uses frequencies designed to simply bring brain chemicals into balance. This new research uses frequencies to specifically change the executive function of the brain.
It would seem that both technologies have the potential to improve the ability to learn more readily.

More details about the research are given in a media release from Boston University titled
A “Turbo Charge” for Your Brain?
“In a placebo-controlled randomised double blind study the healing process” of three groups with identical wounds of the oral mucosa were treated. The oral surgeon who conducted the study, irrigated the mouth of one group with ozonated or ozonised water, one group with water, and one group without treatment.
The study took place at the University of Basel in Switzerland. The surgeon reported: “The application of ozonised water clearly showed an acceleration of wound healing within the first 48 hours, resulting in earlier epithelial wound closure after 7 days.”

A research report on a study conducted in China indicates that ozonated water functions to stimulate “immune activation and immune regulation” as well as other healing mechanisms. In addition, with oral mucositis induced by chemotherapy, ozonated water reduced the pain as it had an analgesic effect.
This study had one group of hospital patients suffering with mouth ulcers, as a result of Behcet’s disease, gargle with ozonated water while the control group gargled with a different solution. The medical researchers reported that the group gargling with ozonated water “had significant improvement in healing oral ulcers and relieving the pain.”

Researchers at the University of Aberdeen, using the eyes, “found that the body’s internal electric field plays a crucial role in the healing of damaged cells and tissue. Dr. Colin McCaig and his team studied the healing of damaged rat corneas.”
The team discovered that with the cells of a healthy cornea, the body pumps positively charged ions in and negatively charged ions are pushed out. In a damaged cornea, the body’s electrical field disappears. They also discovered that inducing an electric field speeded up healing.
