Is it time to get serious about accepting gentle electricity for healing? Sierra Senyak offered a review of “What’s Hot” in the January 2005 issue of Alternative Medicine magazine—choosing bioelectromagnetic fields. Titled, “Energy medicine: time to bring it home” Senyak states, “It heals arthritis and cancer and is government-approved—but not in this country. Why it should be, and now.”
“Medical Applications of Electromagnetic Fields” by Henry C. Lai and Narendra P. Singh was published in 2010. Their research at the University of Washington exposed both the malaria parasite and cancer cells to “low-intensity non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMFs)” in the laboratory. The scientists sum up their promising results:
This concept has been tested in vitro on malaria parasites and found to be effective. … This concept has been tested on human cancer cell and normal cells in vitro and proved to be feasible.
Dr. Daniel Kirsch provides a great introduction to electromedicine reminding us that “The basic unit of energy is the electron.” He establishes the electrical nature of the body as he reflects on his medical training:
All atoms are bonded electrically. … Further in our rudimentary training we learned that there are voltage potentials across the membrane of all cells. … They do not, however, speculate on the staggering significance of these facts.
“Electromedicine: The Other Side of Physiology” is the title of chapter 60 in Pain Management, A Practical Guide for Clinicians, sixth edition, 2002. Dr. Kirsch sums saying “Even at its present state of evolution, electromedicine offers an unprecedented conservative, cost-effective, fast, safe, and powerful tool in the management of the pain patient.”
In “Measurement of the Human Biofield and Other Energetic Instruments” Beverly Rubik provides a great overview of the electromagnetic nature of our bodies as well as the fact we emit light, sound and heat.
Her article helps explain the difficulty mainstream scientists have with Energy Medicine and Energy Fields. She describes the energy fields that surround us: “The human body emits low-level light, heat, and acoustical energy, has electrical and magnetic properties, and may also transduce energy that cannot be easily defined by physics and chemistry.”
In “Microcurrent Stimulation Therapy” published in January 2003, Dan Roberts provides an independent look at microcurrents for retinal conditions.
The article says “Interest in the procedure developed when Sam Snead, the retired professional golfer, underwent a series of MCS treatments which improved his vision which was weakened by macular degeneration.”
Eye specialist, Dr. Edward Kondrot, has devoted himself to making the benefits of microcurrent therapy for the eyes known. He goes beyond eye treatment to say that microcurrents “act as catalyst to restore the body.”
During a video interview, “Dr. Kondrot on American Health Journal TV,” he demonstrates how he uses microcurrent and says it’s not only for the eyes … microcurrents are for many physical conditions. In a brief article as well as the video, Dr. Kondrot provides information about macular degeneration and explains the use of microcurrent as a therapy.
“Healing spark: Hack body electricity to replace drugs” heralds the story of a man who is back at work without pain—after suffering from debilitating rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers implanted a device that stimulates nerves that reach the spleen which is home to T-cells that are part of the immune system. Linda Geddes, the author states that “The idea that electrical signals can control the immune system will sound bizarre to anyone who has studied biology.”
“Electric fieldshave potential as a cancer treatment” with the subtitle stating: “Low-intensity alternating fields can hinder or destroy dividing cells and slow the growth of brain tumors in cancer patients.”
A portable device is used as patients apply the electrodes to the scalp for 18 hours a day. August 2007.
Dr. Jerry Tennant, author Healing is Voltage, provides a review of discoveries about cell voltage, about the application of microcurrents, and the ways lifestyle choices combine to create healthy cell voltages. In “Voltage: The Key to Rebuilding Your Health” Dr. Tennant says, “The body doesn’t get well by making damaged cells work correctly. It gets well by making new cells that work correctly.”
