‘Love conquers all’
Science has given us much in regards to the longevity of our species; through a better understanding of our own biological makeup we now know what best to put into our bodies and what best to leave out.
But there is something that baffles scientists even today, one thing that appears to be the difference between life and death. It has nothing to do with the vitamins or minerals we consume and regardless of our genetics, without this one life-source we will ultimately die.
Several centuries ago in the thirteenth century, the german king Frederick II conducted a whole series of diabolical experiments. He was an inquisitive king and his desire to know had no place for ethics or morality.
In one of Frederick’s experiments he took babies at birth from their mothers and placed them in to the care of nurses. These nurses were forbidden from speaking around the babies, they were also forbidden from making any physical contact with the babies.
Frederick wanted to find out what language these babies would develop naturally if no language was ever heard. Frederick was to try to discover ‘Gods Language’, the language spoken by Adam & Eve.
Unfortunately the experiment failed, the babies never developed any language, they died.
In 1248 the Italian historian Salimbene di Adam wrote in regards to this experiment:
They Could not live without petting.
The babies died due to lack of love, affection and human contact. Modern medicine refers to this phenomenon as “Failure to thrive”
For some reason, we humans flourish under the influence of love and we gradually die without it.
As Dr. Dean Ornish wrote in his national bestseller, Love & Survival:
“Anything that promotes feelings of love and intimacy is healing; anything that promotes isolation, separation, loneliness, loss, hostility, anger, cynicism, depression, alienation, and related feelings often leads to suffering, disease, and premature death from all causes” (Dean Ornish, Love and Survival, p. 29).
Biofields – The Science of Auras
While many believe human aura’s are reserved for irrational anti-science new-age hippies, in actual fact this is a false assumption. Human aura’s exist, in terms of science they are defined as Biofields, but the two are one of the same.
In 1994, the term ‘Biofield’ was coined by a panel on manual modalities concerned with alternative and complementary medicine at the U.S National Institutes of Health.
This term ‘Biofield’ was soon after accepted by the U.S National Library of Medicine as a medical subject heading search (MeSH).
The Biofield is defined by Beverly Rubik, Ph. D in her paper ‘The Biofield Hypothesis: It’s Biophysical Basis and Role in Medicine’  as:
…the endogenous, complex dynamic electromagnetic field resulting from the superposition of component EM fields of the organism that is proposed to be involved in self-organization and bio-regulation of the organism 
More simply put, Biofields are the natural electromagnetic fields produced by all living organisms that are involved in the biological well-being of the organism.
An interesting example of the importance of this biofield is an experiment performed on Salamanders and Frogs in the early 1960’s.
The regeneration of salamander limbs was shown to be controlled by the salamanders own ability to produce DC microampere currents flowing through the stumps.
It was found that a positive current at the point of injury flows for a few days after the amputation, which stimulates an inflammatory response and initiates the body’s self-healing process (blastema formation).
At this point the current switches to negative and limb generation begins, once the limb has regrown the current switches back to it baseline potential.
This fascinating experiment was documented by Robert Becker’s in his book ‘The Body Electric’. He named this phenomenon the ‘Positive current of injury’
This experiment in salamanders led to further experiments with frogs and rats where limbs could be partially regenerated by artificially reversing the polarity of the voltage at the stump to negative using a miniature battery.
While full limb restoration was not achieved, both the frog and the rat partially regenerated their lost limb.
On the flip-side, more recent studies have found blocking this current at the stump on salamanders prevents limb regeneration, suggesting that bioelectrical factors are the critical controls of limb regeneration
Geophysical Fields Regulate Life Globally
In the Book by G.J.M Thomassen entitled ‘Geo-Cosmic Relations: The Earth and Its Macro-Environment' it states that there is a deep interrelationship between geo-cosmic fields and life, because life evolved in the presence of specific natural EM fields on earth.
Many of the natural frequencies associated with the Schumann resonance which is a transverse resonating waveband spanning between the earth and ionosphere produce beneficial effects on organisms including humans, even at low intensities.
The Schumann frequency operates between 7 – 10Hz.
Brain waves at 8 to 10Hz form the alpha band of EEG, which is associated with meditation and relaxation.
When Electromagnetic fields are applied to humans within this bandwidth they go into a psychophysiological state of relaxation.
Different EM fields have different predictable effects on the human body, for example some can stimulate therapeutic effects such as osteogenesis, soft tissue regeneration and immune system enhancement.
Another application for this, one which has been widely used and has been approved by the FDA for over 20 years is the use of pulsed magnetic stimulation at 7Hz to promote bone tissue regeneration. A non-evasive and highly effective treatment for bone fractures.
Organic Wireless Communication
Research has found that even extremely low intensity, non-ionizing EM fields can produce significant effects on biological systems.
The energy content of these fields are so low in fact that it has been suggested that they are acting informationally. While the science in this field is still in its early stages, this informational field of energy has been called ‘Electromagnetic bio-information’.
An experiment in 1982 entitled ‘Electromagnetic bioinformation in intercellular interactions' placed two tissue cell cultures in separate isolated containers side by side.
In the first container a virus was introduced which led to disease and death of the cells.
Just 12 hours later, the cells in the second container displayed the same disease features as the first and the cells died.
The study concluded that:
…ultra-weak electromagnetic radiation, possibly in the ultraviolet range of the spectrum, emitted by the living cells carried cell-disease information from one culture to another.
The implications of this Biofield and its ability to transmit and receive information across space are huge and yet it is an area of science still relatively untouched in the mainstream, or should I say, ignored.
Dr. Thornton Streeter DSc discusses Biofield Imaging
While alternative medicines and therapies are mocked by much of the population, often being referred to as pseudoscience, there is strong evidence to support that many of these ancient healing methods are based on science; just a science that we do not fully understand.
Acupuncture is vastly misunderstood, while focus has always been given to the acupoints physical interaction it is actually more likely to do with the interaction with the biofield that causes the undeniable benefits.
Acupoints have shown to be special regions of higher electrical conductivity than the surrounding tissue.
It is suggested that stimulation to these acupoints may actually be a method of transferring bioinformation directly through the biofield to give the desired physical effect on the body.
Homeopathy is an even more controversial treatment, labelled by most of the modern population as quackery, but once again possibly vastly misunderstood.
Biofield science suggests that homeopathic tinctures may hold bioinformation in its ‘structured’ water. Both substances and electromagnetic fields can alter this structure.
These remedies may be so powerful that just being within close proximity of the homeopathic remedy could trigger the beneficial physiological response to the patient.
Reiki and other non-contact biofield therapies are likely mediated through means of electro-magnetic bioinformation. For example, a reiki practitioner may emit low level EM field which impacts the biofield of the patient causing a therapeutic effect.
While the evidence-based science is thin surrounding non-contact therapeutic therapies, this does not mean their effectiveness should be ignored.
With what we are now discovering about the significance of the biofield and the bioinformation that it transmits and receives, it is clear that we should not discount medicines and therapies simply because we have yet to fully understand the science.
