ENERGY MEDICINEIndia 2018 DR BERNARD BROM MAY 2018
Is ‘energy’ in medicine quackery • ‘Good vibes and bad vibes’ • Energy fields and Auras • Mental telepathy • Sangomas’ connection to ancestors • Power of prayer and healing hands • Symbols , meaning & the placebo response • Acupuncture, Rife and other similar ‘energy’ tools.
What is not quackery! • ECG and EEG (electromagnetic electroconvulsive therapy) • Ultrasound (sound) • MRI (magnetic) • CT scan • X-ray • Radio frequencies
ACCEPTABLE ENERGIES • Mainly investigative tools and powerful energies which can be easily measured • Electromagnetic effects of heart - no known effect on biological systems – used only to measure heart activity(diagnostic) • ECT (Electroconvulsive therapy)
Other energies on the ‘edge’ • Colour & light therapy-changes chemistry & stimulates oxytocin, prolactin, beta endorphins etc • Sound, music & tone: brain can be entrained by sound frequencies-Monroe institute in Virginia. Reduction of pain & other health improvements. Music can calm emotionally & used in psychotherapy. • Electro-physiological measures: skin resistance falls dramatically over acupuncture points leading to a range of energy tools for diagnosis and treatment. Mora therapy. Vega.
ARNDT-SCHULTZ LAW • High energy damage or kill • Medium energy suppress or inhibit • Low or minute energy stimulate • APPLIES TO: microcurrentseg Rife, MENS (Microcurrent Electrical Neuromuscular Stimulation), voice volume, massage, homeopathy vs drugs, lasers (low energy vs high energy), feminine nourishing power vs masculine physical power.
What is real? • Does this mean that low or very weak energies & information which cannot be measured * do not exist * have no influence on living systems * and can therefore be ignored Even though they are accepted as real by most human beings (love, compassion, thought, spirit, soul, God & touch etc)
More power or more love • DO WE NEED MORE POWER OR MORE LOVE
THE HEART • The heart as a pump • The heart’s electromagnetic field: ECG recording, other field effects? • The heart as a sensory organ - ‘feeling’ • The ‘mind’ of the heart’ - intuition. The work of the HeartMathorganisation. Heart: matter-energy-information-consciousness
The capture of medicine by Big Pharma • Creates impression that only biochemistry matters • That drugs are powerful enough to deal with the ‘real’ problems • That ‘energy’ is just an epiphenomenon of chemical actions and therefore of no special importance • That there is no evidence that ‘energy’ influences matter or biochemistry • Subtle energy is too subjective to be important • Referring to chakras, acupuncture points, auras or ancestors is all hocus pocus and can be ignored.
Integrative Medicine‘The Greater Anatomy’ • MATTER – ENERGY – INFORMATION –QUANTUM SPACE • BODY – EMOTIONS – MIND – SPIRIT – CONSCIOUSNESS
COPPER CABLE TO TV • 1. Copper- material/objective body. Can be weighed, measured, cut and touched. • 2. Electricity passes along wire • 3. Information needed for picture on the screen. • All three components required to have a picture on the TV screen = MEI
Is the human being measurable • Anatomy and biochemistry can be measured • What about thoughts and emotions • What about spirit, soul, mind and consciousness • Can God be measured • Can ancestors be measured • Can a computer have an experience, emotions, independent thoughts, know God or Ancestors.
Medical Science • Medical science can only measure a small part of the total human being. • The scientist uses a range of human tools like imagination, thought, inspiration, intuition, feeling to measure what can be measured and yet denies her own subjective components
Speed of chemical reactions Electromagnetic frequencies are hundred times more efficient than chemical signals such as hormones and neurotransmitters in relaying information within biological systems. • Each cell is going through around 100 000 chemical processes /second. Chemical signals too slow to co-ordinate and multitask this level of complexity.
Electromagnetic speed • Electromagnetic frequencies on the other hand are a hundred times faster and more efficient than chemical signals such as hormones and neurotransmitters. • The astonishing speed of electro-magnetic frequencies allows for the whole body to function as a single crystalline structure and in health the system functions coherently
LOW-ENERGY LASERS • All living systems emit photons. • Biological window 800-1200nm • Safe for babies, children and pregnant women. • Can be safely used on open wounds • Can be used over dressings. • Almost no sensation or heating effects. • Laser-Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation = LASER
Low energy laser • Plenty science to its use • World congress every two years • Journal of low energy laser • In Russia used in most hospitals by specialists and used in many homes.
My personal experience • 1. Personal experience- acupuncture and other effects. • 2.Western experience-muscular skeletal • 3.Russian experience- Systemic/-organ irradiation.
LOW ENERGY LASERS • Monochromacity - same wavelength • Coherence - all wavelengths in step or in phase with each other • Non divergence - waves in parallel • Red to infrared part of spectrum
FOUR ways of using lasers • Muscular-skeletal problems & local effects(cosmetic, skin, mucous membranes & subcutaneous) • Internal organs • Acupuncture effects • Intravenous
LASER RESEARCH • ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Laser therapy has an anti-oedemiceffect as it causes vasodilation, but also because it activates the lymphatic drainage system (drains swollen areas). As a result, there is a reduction in swelling caused by bruising or inflammation. • ANTI-PAIN: Laser therapy has a highly beneficial effect on nerve cells, which block pain transmitted by these cells to the brain and which decrease nerve sensitivity. Also, due to less inflammation, there is less oedemaand less pain.
LASER RESEARCH • ACCELERATED TISSUE REPAIR AND CELL GROWTH: Photons of light from lasers penetrate deeply into tissue and accelerate cellular reproduction and growth. The laser light increases the energy available to the cell so that the cell can take on nutrients faster and get rid of waste products. • IMPROVES VASCULAR ACTIVITY: Laser light will significantly increase the formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue that speeds up the healing process, closes wounds quickly and reduces scar tissue.
LASER RESEARCH • INCREASED METABOLIC ACTIVITY: Laser therapy creates higher outputs of specific enzymes, greater oxygen and food particle loads for blood cells. • TRIGGER POINTS AND ACUPUNCTURE POINTS: Laser therapy stimulates muscle trigger points and acupuncture points on a non-invasive basis providing musculoskeletal pain relief.
SUMMARY OF LASER USES • Treatment is painless • Highly effective for many diseases and conditions • Eliminates pain • Reduces the need for pharmaceuticals • Restores normal range of motion and physical function • Easily applied and exceptionally safe to use on everyone, from babies to adults and pets.
SUMMARY OF LASER USES • Non-invasive • Non-toxic • No known adverse effects • No drug interactions • Often makes surgical interventions unnecessary • Provides a treatment alternative for patients who have not responded to other therapies
