There is still very little research being carried out on the biochemical, physiological, and psychological effects of electricity on the human body, in comparison with pharmaceutical research. Much more investment is needed to encourage the medical profession to carry out more delving studies of how the body is affected at a molecular levels.
There are many conditions in which pathological studies reveal biochemical problems. One example is Alzheimer's where pathological studies have revealed excess amyloid protein in the brain.
Our ability to manipulate the body using electronic medical devices is improving slowly. As technology advances we should try to develop our skills in manipulating our physiology in new ways, freeing people of their reliance on pharmaceuticals.
Most of the research done on Resonance Waves was done in the 1930s. The research, although all very positive, was quickly made obsolete and of no interest anymore with the introduction of penicillin in 1936. However, in the 1980s with an outbreak of the so-called "yuppie flu" (Severe Epstein Bahr and Cocksacki infections due to the overuse of antibiotics) resonance therapy was rediscovered and began to be accepted in certain countries such as Germany as a healthier alternative to antibiotics.
Resonance therapy (or Rife therapy as it sometimes referred to) is based on the research done in the Thirties by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, a microbiologist, on the effects of electro magnetic resonance on cancer cells. Dr. Rife based his research on the scientific fact that every biochemical compound oscillates at its own distinct frequency pattern. Therefore, every living thing has its own unique electromagnetic signature, and this pattern is genetically determined—and is therefore unique and unlike any other species. The principle of magnetic resonance treatment is to eliminate pathogen growth forms of micro- organisms. This can be done by exposing disease organisms to highly modified forms of their own unique electromagnetic pattern of oscillation.
From this research it was empirically proven that many types of cancer can be easily and quickly killed by exposure to pressure square waves of a frequency of approximately 2127 cycles per second. It appears that one or more of the higher frequency hidden wave components. i.e. 3(2127), 5(2127), 7(2127), 9(2127), etc. opens up ion gates on the cancer cells' membrane and radically changes the ionic conditions inside the cancer cell, such that it drops the bi-lipid layer potential difference below some critical value below which the cancer cell can not recover and it dies. Rife’s research and supported research done by the University of Southern California is very well documented in the book “The Cancer Cure that Worked” by medical journalist, Mr. Barry Lynes.
Although Dr Royal Rife has done research on the healing capabilities electromagentic waves from 1933 until his death in 1971, the science of applying magnetic resonance in the medical field is still in its infancy and efforts to experiment with magnetic resonance should be encouraged and supported.
Prominent researchers in the last 4 decades on especially Dr. Rife’s work are: E.C. Rosenow, Sr. (Chief of Bacteriology at Mayo Clinic), Fredrich Koch (Detroit, Brazil), Sakae Inoue (Japan), Georges Mazet (France,), Franz Gerlach (Germany), Niello Moil and Clara Fonti (Italy), Cameron Gruner (McGill Univ.), T.J. Glover (Canada), Florence Seibert (V.A. Research Lab, Bay Pines, Fla.), Lyks Sieger (U.S. Denmark), Irene Diller (Inst. of Cancer Research, Phila, Penn), Eleanor Alex. Jackson and Virginia Livingston (NJ & San Diego clinics).
New research mathematically determined the frequencies at which simple viruses could be shaken to death.
"The capsid of a virus is something like the shell of a turtle," said physicist Otto Sankey of Arizona State University. "If the shell can be compromised [by mechanical vibrations], the virus can be inactivated."
To expedite this search, Sankey and his student Eric Dykeman have developed a way to calculate the vibrational motion of every atom in a virus shell. From this, they can determine the lowest resonant frequencies.
As an example of their technique, the team modelled the satellite tobacco necrosis virus and found this small virus resonates strongly around 60 Gigahertz (where one Gigahertz is a billion cycles per second), as reported in the 14 January 2008 issue of Physical Review Letters.
All objects have resonant frequencies at which they naturally oscillate. Pluck a guitar string and it will vibrate at a resonant frequency.
But resonating can get out of control. A famous example is the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, which warped and finally collapsed in 1940 due to a wind that rocked the bridge back and forth at one of its resonant frequencies.
Viruses are susceptible to the same kind of mechanical excitation. An experimental group led by K. T. Tsen from Arizona State University have recently shown that pulses of laser light can induce destructive vibrations in virus shells.
"The idea is that the time that the pulse is on is about a quarter of a period of a vibration," Sankey said. "Like pushing a child on a swing from rest, one impulsive push gets the virus shaking."
Normal cells should not be affected by the virus-killing sound waves because they have resonant frequencies much lower than those of viruses, Sankey said.
Moreover, it is unlikely that viruses will develop resistance to mechanical shaking, as they do to antibiotics.
"This is such a new field, and there are so little research done, that the science has not yet had sufficient time to prove itself," Sankey said. We remain hopeful but remain sceptical at the same time."
Research findings on magnetic resonance are in many cases coincidental while doing research on other or similar study subjects. Ross Adey and other researchers have for instance reported that one effect of the application of weak electromagnetic fields is the release of calcium ions inside of the cell (Adey WR. Electromagnetism in biology and medicine. In Modern Radio Science. Oxford, England: Oxford University Press, pgs 277-245, 1993).
Adey’s finding that cells respond constructively to a wide range of frequencies including frequencies in the extremely low frequency (ELF) range of 1-10 Hz a range of frequencies known as the Schumann resonance frequencies that are naturally produced in the atmosphere (Adey, 1993), can directly be applied in resonance therapy as resonant generators can be programmed with these frequencies and be applied in wound healing.
Researchers at the University of Washington have for instance discovered a method of treating malaria with magnetic fields that could prove revolutionary in controlling the disease the World Health Organization calls one of the world's most complex and serious human health concerns. Henry Lai, UW research professor of bioengineering, says the malaria parasite Plasmodium appears to lose vigour and can die when exposed to oscillating magnetic fields, which Lai thinks may cause tiny iron-containing particles inside the parasite to move in ways that damage the organism. Collaborating researchers include Jean E. Feagin, UW associate professor of patho-biology and senior scientist at the Seattle Biomedical Research Institute; and Ceon Ramon, UW electrical engineering research scientist.
At Princeton Medical Center magnetic resonance devices is applied in their ongoing research to destroy cancers.
In Europe, there are a number of doctors and clinics openly using the magnetic resonance therapy for treating patients for cancer and many other diseases. A manufacturer of medical equipment in Germany (Onco-Therm GmbH) produces a commercial unit for hospitals as part of a comprehensive treatment for cancer and their system was already introduces at the Medica trade fair in 1999. Other companies are known to be in the process of preparing their own machines for release into the European market in the near future.
