Microbes are not the prime cause of disease

Microbes are not the prime cause of disease. Disease comes from within and is the result of the body providing an unhealthy terrain that allows harmful microbes to flourish. These micro organisms are the secondary effect of a poor terrain.

A healthy terrain is the result of good food, pure water, fresh air, sunlight, warmth and low frequency, earth-based pulsed magnetic fields. Provide these and harmful microbes are much less likely to take hold. They are exactly what the body needs!

1893 piles of dog poo!!!

According to Michelle Crouch in Reader’s Digest (April 2015), the reason why dogs circle around before getting down to business is that they have an instinct to align themselves with the Earth’s magnetic field before they poo. Researcher watched 70 dogs do 1893 poos over a 2 year period to work this out.

Animals have a much greater sense of the Earth’s energies than we do. It seems we have lost these abilities as we evolved. Even so, earth energies still affect us and in some circumstances harmful energies can make us very ill. Headaches, fatigue, insomnia and depression have all been linked to energy stresses coming from the ground.

Health and Beliefs

No serious medical practitioner can now deny that mind and body are one. In the 1980s scientists such as Dr Candace Pert proved that thoughts travel along the nerves to the muscles, organs and tissues, influencing the process by which cells are renewed and that meanwhile, cells continually send messages to the brain.

The mind can make us ill, and it can make us well. A state of peace and well-being creates healthy cells; anxious states do the opposite. Negative thoughts can give rise to all manner of conditions. Beliefs are simply collections of thoughts to which give sanction, so be careful what you think and say about your body. If you hear yourself saying, ‘You’re a pain in the neck’ or ‘this is a real headache’ don’t be surprised if you get one!

In her book, ‘Positive Thinking,’ Vera Pfeiffer relates the incredible tale of a convicted murderer in the United States who chose to have his wrists cut rather than go to the electric chair. The poisoned was blindfolded, a warden traced across his wrists with a feather. He died instantly. There are similar stories of African tribesmen when witch doctors pointed a ‘magic’ bone at them. It’s not the bone that killed them, but their belief in the power of the witchdoctor.

If you are unwell and don’t believe that you will recover, your belief (not the illness) can prevent you from getting well. Norman Cousins, who cured himself of a terminal illness after doctors had given up on him, wrote:

‘Drugs are not always necessary. Belief in recovery always is.’

Those who believe that illness is a sign of failure on their part or a punishment for mistakes made in this and previous lives heal the slowest of all.

What we can learn from placebos

Placebos are pills and potions with no active ingredients (i.e. ‘active’ in the conventional sense). They are often used in clinical trials as ‘controls’. One group takes the test drug, the other a placebo, and the outcomes are compared. It is not unusual for the improvement to be similar in both groups. Some patients even get the same side effects from placebos as if they had taken the actual medication.

The main factor in successful healing with placebos is the belief of the patient, hence the size, shape and colour of the tablets influence results, as does the healing procedure. Anything that makes the treatment seem more credible, such as the doctor’s bedside manner, improves the placebo effect. Placebos are least effective when the patient is unconscious or unaware of what is going on.

Placebos tell us something important about the mind-body connection. They are rarely used these days because doctors consider it unethical to tell patients a pill has an active ingredient when it hasn’t. Pity. How much potential for safe, effective healing is being lost?

The biochemical revolution has almost run its course

Understanding the relationship between beliefs and health will be among the greatest advances in medical science in the coming century. The biochemical revolution of the last sixty years has almost run its course and will one day – soon – be seen as ‘old medicine’ as doctors look elsewhere for solutions to intractable medical problems.

Your Body’s Energy

Good health has its origins in the invisible energy field from which atoms are formed. The body is energy in vibration. When we give our bodies what they need, including plenty of loving attention, we increase the flow of life-giving energy.



What is your body made of?

Chemically, the body is mainly carbon, water and waste, but this is only its outward appearance. Through a microscope, we see that it is made up of cells. Cells are made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms. Atoms are made up of subatomic waves and particles spinning in formation, held together by an invisible information field. We are, in fact, 99.999% empty space.

We are made of the same stuff as everything else in the universe. We are, in a very literal sense, stardust!

The body is more than a marvellous machine; it appears to be a solid collection of muscles, bones and tissue, but is formed of energy.  We’re a paradox – we live in physical bodies formed out of something non-physical, animated and held together by an invisible ‘life force’.

The Chakra System

Thousands of years ago, sophisticated systems of healing were developed in India and China which are just as effective today. The Indians recognised that the body is regulated by seven ‘wheels of light’ or major energy points known as ‘chakras’. The first five are situated along the spine, the sixth and seventh in the head:

  1. The Base Chakra at the base of the spine, relates to the adrenal glands, spinal column and kidneys.
  1. The Sacral Chakra at the top of the triangular bone forms the keystone of the pelvic archand relates to the reproductive system and legs.
  1. The Solar Plexus Chakra in the lower back governs the nervous system and stomach and regulates blood sugar.
  1. The Heart Chakra, related to the Thymus Gland, controls the immune system, heart and circulation. It is situated between the shoulder blades.
  1. The Throat Chakra, situated in the neck, relates to the thyroid gland (which controls the metabolism) and governs the lung, bronchial and vocal apparatus and alimentary canal.
  1. The Brow Chakra is found in the middle of the forehead between the eyes. It links to the pituitary gland, which controls maturation and growth.
  1. The Crown Chakra at the top of the head governs the other six. It relates to the pineal gland, which is responsible for the production of melatonin, a powerful antioxidant which strengthens the immune system and may increase longevity.

The aura

The energy field extends beyond your physical form. A field of electrical energy, the ‘aura,’ radiates from you as a magnetic field radiates from a magnet.

Your aura expands, contracts and changes hue according to your physical, mental and emotional health. When you are well, it expands and glows brightly; when you are unwell or cut off from your inner peace, it closes in and turns dreary grey.

Although most of us cannot see them with the naked eye, we are aware of others’ auras at a subconscious level. A healthy aura attracts and energises us; a dull aura repels.

The aura can be photographed using a technique known as ‘Kirlian’ photography. Why not have your energy field photographed? There’s bound to be someone in your area who practises Kirlian photography. You’ll find it illuminating, literally!

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

TCM dates back at least four thousand years, and is a radically different way of understanding physical function and the causes of disease than its Western counterpart. At the heart of the TCM healing model is the flow of energy, ‘qi’ or chi’, through the meridians (energy channels). Disease is viewed as a lack of harmony or disruptions in qi. Practitioners aim to influence the delivery and control of this subtle energy, to address the root cause of illness rather than merely treating the symptoms.

Treatments include herbs, acupuncture, dietary therapy, tui na massage, cupping, moxabustion (applying heat) and Qigong exercises.


Kinesiology – evidence of cellular intelligence

Kinesiology is a complementary healing system based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine. It taps in to the innate intelligence present in every cell. The practitioner tests the strength in various muscles to identify problem areas, then restores balance within the body, relieves energy blockages and helps the body’ to cleanse itself of toxins and heal naturally.

A growing interest in energy medicine

For a long time Oriental Medicine was regarded in the West as esoteric, but now it is proven to be verifiable science. For example, meridians have been mapped using thermal imaging, electronics, radioactivity etc. They are high-speed highways for information carrying and energy interchange.

Science is beginning to acknowledge that chemistry, although successful at explaining many of the functions of the body, does not adequately explain its integrative workings. Energy medicine is integrative: it combines physics, chemistry, biology and the information network in the body that conventional biology knows next to nothing about.

The state of your energy field dramatically affects your physical state. Managing your energy field is within your grasp. For example, be aware of the energy of people you mix with and the language you use. Seek out places with healthy energy (e.g. the natural environment), use earth-based PEMF therapy devices and distance yourself from anything that weakens your energy field.

Consciousness and Healing (3)

I have identified seven levels of consciousness in healing and discussed the first five in previous blogs; in this blog I discuss the final two, the energy healer and the informational healer.

The prevailing mindset in the medical community today is dominated by biochemistry and (increasingly) genetics, although there is a growing realisation that psychological factors are important too. We simply can’t ignore the impact our thoughts, emotions and mental images have on our physical being.

But there are other realms too – invisible factors which lie beyond that the awareness of the five senses. Metaphysicians have said for  centuries that all visible things come from the invisible and depend on the unseen for their existence. In the past hundred years or so, physicists have realized the truth of this too.

Level six: the energy healer

There’s nothing new about energy medicine of course; it’s as old as the hills of China. In mainstream medicine it’s still considered woo-woo, even though it has a credible scientific basis and is sometimes used for pain relief in European hospitals. Despite this, many energy practitioners do little to debunk its mystique. There’s a good living to be made from crystals, rituals, symbols, coloured torches, pendulums and the like.

Energy healers understand that humans are formed from a complex flow of energies, and that inputting energy into the body or correcting the energy flow through the body can promote health and cure illness. It has a strong tradition (e.g. Chinese medicine) and a huge and increasing body of scientific evidence gathered over the past hundred years. If you haven’t already, look up the work of Georges Lakhovsky, Harold Saxton Burr, Beverly Rubik and Fritz-Albert Popp for starters.

Since Einstein, no-one who keeps themselves informed seriously doubts that matter is formed from energy, and that we are essentially beings of light. Popp even measured the feint emissions of light emanating from our DNA.

There are many forms of energy medicine. A good example is Reiki, an ancient oriental practice of channelling healing energy into the body of the patient. In theory, the energy goes where it is needed. All that is required of the healer is to put their ego aside and allow the ‘universal healing energy’ to flow.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has the basic premise that all that illness is caused by energy blockages, and unblocking these using acupuncture, herbs, dietary therapy, Qi Gong and so on restores the body to equilibrium and health. There is a great deal of recent scientific evidence that confirms the existence of meridians and acupoints and the benefits of using this knowledge in healing.

In addition, the American space agency NASA has investigated the use of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) in health and healing and verified their efficacy.

Actually, all medicine is energy medicine, since all drugs, herbs, foodstuffs, vaccines, antibiotics transmit energy to the patient and impact on the body’s energetic systems. Even putting on a plaster impacts on the body’s energy field. Mental healing, too, is a form of energy medicine, since ideas, beliefs, commands, suggestions and so on are all form of thought energy.

But we are not simply energy. Something has to direct that energy. Intention? Information? Consciousness? If consciousness, whose? The patient’s? The practitioner’s? Universal consciousness? Good question!

Quantum physics has, of course, provided a whole new impetus to energy medicine, but we should remember that the story has yet to come to a conclusion. Science is an ongoing process. What seems new today is just the unfolding or discovering of what has always been. For most of history, what scientists thought they ‘knew’ eventually turned out to be wrong. As Ernest Holmes wrote, ‘Man never creates: he discovers and uses.’ One day, quantum physics will be also overtaken by something better, that explains more and takes us closer to revealing the Truth (with a capital ‘T’) more precisely than what has gone before.

Which brings us to:

Phase seven: the informational healer

Whereas the traditional energy healer believes he or she works with the flow of energy through the body, the modern bioenergetic and informational healer works with the ‘biofield’ or ‘body-field’, the matrix of energy and information which permeates every atom of our bodies and extends beyond the skin into the environment and perhaps even into space itself.

We are not simply energy. Something has to direct that energy. The informational healer recognises that energy by itself is insufficient to heal because it need to be directed by information. If the right and/or necessary information is absent, blocked or distorted, healing will not happen.

Information is imprinted and transferred through the biofield or energy body. It is this which ultimately controls the body’s physical processes.

One of the pioneers in the field was the late researcher and TCM practitioner, Peter Fraser, who featured in the highly informative DVD, The Living Matrix. I once had the pleasure of meeting him and attending some of his lectures, and found him totally inspiring. His body-field model has three parts:

  • The morphic field determines the growth pattern or shape of the body and links to RNA and DNA.
  • The Heart Field is related to pulse rate and makes a magnetic wave that extends far beyond the body.
  • The Living Matrix is our muscles, organs and connective tissues. The meridians and cell water links to the breathing rate.

I witnessed the impact that information can have on the body’s energy field at a recent seminar. One participant, an accomplished Reiki Master, wrote a word on a piece of paper and placed it on the subject’s stomach. She then tested the subject’s response (using kinesiology) and found it had reacted to the paper. So what was it that had this effect on the biofield? The paper and ink? Surely not! The biofield had somehow responded to the information on the paper. (If you would care to hazard a guess as to what the actual word was, please leave a comment on this article and I’ll share it with you.)

We are all energy and information healers – because everything we do affects the energy and information flowing through the body-field – not only our own body-field, but other people’s too. Consequently, we can all cause ill-health by inadvertently spreading bad energy and information.

Information can be expressed in many ways – the spoken and written word, pictures, touch and so on. Actually, at some level all medicine is also informational medicine, since drugs, herbs, foodstuffs, fluids, vaccines, antibiotics – even splints, scalpels and bandages – transmit information to the patient’s biofield.

What if the informational components of plant remedies, not their biochemistry, were the main instrumental factor in bringing about healing? (This would partly explain why homeopathy can be so effective.) What if the active ingredient in spoken word therapies is not the change in behaviour which results (as assumed by many practitioners), but the information input into the biofield?

Summary: Consciousness and Healing

It is said that the Great Healers actually restructured the energy and information in their patients’ bio-fields. What if all you need to become a Great Healer yourself is the consciousness that you can?

As we climb the Mountain of Truth and look behind us, we see things we didn’t see before. Patterns in the landscape that we previously missed become obvious. To those at the bottom of the Mountain, we are purely physical beings. To those on the middle slopes, we are merely cocktails of chemicals reacting with each other, at the mercy of the microbes who make their home on and beneath the skin.

Climb a little higher, and we see that our thoughts and emotions have a huge impact on our health. Higher still, and we become aware that the (invisible) energy which permeates our bodies must be allowed to flow freely if we are to stay healthy. A little higher – and we realise the whole process is controlled by information transfers.

Once you’ve reached this level of consciousness, there’s no going back. You can’t un-know what you know. But have you considered that there is much more at stake here than whether this person or that person gets better and stays well? Our very view of what human beings actually are is on the line.

Today’s scientists now understand that this body, this supposedly fixed and solid thing, is not solid at all. The material universe is illusory, 99.999% empty space, and so are we! We are formed from consciousness – nothing else. Even though we can’t grasp this intellectually, we must awaken to it if our efforts at healing ourselves and the world are to succeed.

There’s still an awful lot of mountain to climb. The human race will have to clamber up many slopes, see many false peaks and pause on numerous narrow ledges on its way to Higher Consciousness. In the meantime, our exploration of healing will be a vital part of the process.

Coping With Anxiety

Anxiety is a feeling of intense worry or distress in the absence of obvious danger. It is a state of inner turmoil accompanied by churning thoughts, nervousness, poor concentration, feelings of dread and loss of control. It is related to, but different from, fear, which is a response to a real or perceived immediate threat.

Anxiety comes in two main forms:

  1. A short-term state, a response to a challenging situation, which can be acute.
  2. A long-term, chronic condition, part of one’s psychological makeup. An anxiety disorder such as this can have a profound effect on our quality of life.

Types of anxiety

There are six major types of anxiety disorders:

  • If constant worries and fears distract you from your day-to-day activities you may be suffering from generalised anxiety disorder. Sufferers feel anxious nearly all of the time without necessarily knowing why. Generalized anxiety disorder often shows up as physical symptoms like insomnia, indigestion and fatigue.
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders are characterized by unwanted thoughts or behaviours that seem impossible to control, such as a recurring worry that you forgot to lock the house before going out or left the oven on. Sufferers may also have uncontrollable compulsions, such as repeatedly washing their hands.
  • Anxiety attacks, characterized by recurrent, unexpected panic feeligs which may also be accompanied by a fear of being in places where escape or help would be difficult such as open spaces like shopping centres or confined spaces such as lifts and underground trains.
  • Phobias are unrealistic or exaggerated fears of specific objects, activities or situations that in reality present little or no threat. Common phobias include fear of animals, birds and spiders, fear of flying and fear of heights. Sufferers go to extreme lengths to avoid the feared object or situation which unfortunately only strengthens the phobia.
  • Social anxiety disorder is a debilitating fear of being seen negatively by others. It includes extreme shyness and stage fright. In severe cases, social situations are avoided altogether which can exacerbate the problem.
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder is an extreme anxiety disorder that can occur after a traumatic or life-threatening event. Symptoms include flashbacks or nightmares, withdrawing from others, startling easily, and avoiding situations that remind us of the event.

Anxiety disorders are partly genetic, but also due to mental disorders such as bipolar condition, depression and certain personality disorders. Drug use and withdrawal from certain drugs can also cause anxiety.

Physical symptoms of anxiety disorders

Anxiety is a result of the body’s natural response to danger, the fight-or-flight response to perceived threats. It can cause a wide range of physical symptoms, hence anxiety sufferers often mistake their disorder for a medical illness before their anxiety disorder is discovered. Common physical symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Breathing problems
  • Digestive problems
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent urination
  • Headaches
  • Racing heart
  • Insomnia
  • Muscle tension
  • Palpitations
  • Sweating
  • Tremors and tics

Mental symptoms of anxiety disorders

  • Constantly tense, fearful, worried or jittery.
  • Avoidance of situations and activities because they cause anxiety.
  • Recurring irrational fears that won’t go away.
  • Compulsive behaviours.
  • Feelings that danger and disaster are imminent.
  • A need to do things in a certain way or order.
  • Recurring thoughts that interfere with daily activities such as work or family life.
  • Mental vagueness/blank mind.

Emotional symptoms of anxiety disorders

  • Anticipating the worst.
  • Poor concentration.
  • Constant feelings of apprehension or dread.
  • Shyness and social awkwardness.
  • Self doubt.

Remedies for Excessive Anxiety

There is no universal cure for anxiety. Sometimes it can be relieved with medication, therapy or a combination of the two, but it is doubtful that either permanently removes the root cause.

Practical lifestyle changes

  1. Whenever you find yourself worrying about something, write it on a piece of paper and put it in a ‘worry box’. On the last day of each month, open the box. You will find that most of your worries never happened and many were not as bad as you imagined.
  2.  Keep active. When you’re busy, your mind has less opportunity to focus on your worries. Often whatever is worrying you resolves itself while your attention is on other things.
  3.  Deep relaxation has enormous benefits. Use relaxation time to ‘visualize’ yourself coping with anxiety-inducing situations. Mindfulness, thought stopping, relaxation and mental calmness can help break the anxiety cycle.
  4.  Take regular exercise. Exercise is a great antidote to anxiety especially if taken in a natural setting. Spend at least twenty minutes per session.
  5.  Slow, deep breathing – focus your attention on your breath and take at least ten slow, long, rhythmic breaths whenever you feel anxiety coming on.
  6.  Eat well. Choose a healthy diet and keep your blood sugar levels up. And never avoid breakfast.
  7.  Daily meditation (minimum morning and evening sessions of twenty minutes each) had enormous benefits for anxiety disorders.
  8.  Live one day at a time. Concentrate on what you can do If you’re clear about your long-term goals and do the best you can each day, the future will take care of itself.

Natural remedies

  1. Omega 3 oils (mainly found in nut and seed oils, fish oils and eggs) are extremely beneficial for anxiety.
  2.  So are ingested herbs such as chamomile, green tea, hops, valerian, lemon balm and passionflower, and the calming scent of lavender.
  3.  There are various over-the-counter products which usually contain a combination of the above and claim to relieve worry, stress and irritability and help to promote natural sleep. For further information visit your pharmacy or health food store.


The National Institute for Clinical Excellence in the UK has recently advised doctors to consider counselling before prescribing drugs for anxiety sufferers. Only one in three find relief from their symptoms through drugs.

There are a wide range of anti-anxiety prescription drugs, including benzodiazepines, Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI’s), Selective Norepinephrine Reuptake Inhibitors (SNRI’s) and Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MOI’s).

Beta blockers, used for the treatment of high blood pressure and a racing heart, can be effective for short term anxiety, for instance if you were anxious over a driving test or examination.

Although these normally take several weeks to ‘kick in’, doctors are reluctant to prescribe medication for more than a few weeks as users can become addicted. They also have side effects ranging from drowsiness, dry mouth, blurred vision and memory problems to sexual dysfunction, weight gain, gastric upset, disrupted sleep and nightmares. Also, abruptly stopping the medication can cause withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, sweating and shaking. If in doubt, always consult a doctor.


Drug companies spend huge sums trying to convince us that depression and anxiety are biological illnesses and can only effectively be treated with drugs, but independent research often shows that psychotherapy can relieve symptoms more quickly and is more likely to prevent a relapse.

Among the approaches used are:

Behavioural therapy

This uses two main approaches:

  1. Desensitization – exposing the client to progressively more stressful events. In theory the anxiety subsides.
  2. The ‘extinction’ technique – based on the notion that if you put the client in anxiety provoking situations often enough, they eventually learn that there’s nothing to be worried about. Sadly it only works 25-30% of the time.


The most common form of psychotherapy is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT assumes that changing maladaptive thinking leads to changes in feelings and behaviour. CBT has been shown to be at least as effective as drugs for the treatment of anxiety.


Hypnosis can be used to expose unconscious causes of anxiety and reprogram the subconscious to make you more relaxed and less anxious. It can also address specific fears and phobias. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) can also address anxiety disorders and phobias.


Psychoanalysis can involve years of analysing childhood experiences and has a poor track record of relieving anxiety.


We all know that worrying about a problem never solved it, but consciously trying to control anxiety or panic through rational thought alone can make matters worse. What we focus on tends to amplify, so trying to think our way out of anxiety can lead to more anxiety provoking thoughts, which only increase the symptoms.

Electronic Bioenergetic Devices

Various electronic devices have been developed in the past half century which use low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues. TENS devices (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), for instance, use electric currents to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. The Scenar – ‘Self-Controlled Energy Neuro Adaptive Regulation,’ originally developed for the Russian space programme, is a hand held biofeedback device which aims to teach the body to heal itself by activating the immune system. While TENS and Scenar have proved effective for pain relief in clinical studies and avoid the problems associated with drugs, it is doubtful that either can help with anxiety.

The most advanced device on the market is the AcuPearl. AcuPearl has been developed by an international team of scientists whose expertise extends from traditional healing methods to the latest research in the body’s connective tissue matrix communication.

AcuPearl comes in various configurations, two of which, the AcuPearl G-Balance and C-Balance, are  is specifically designed to aid with stress, anxiety and sleep patterns.

AcuPearls delivers therapeutic effects in a safe way using (1) Low frequency pulsed output of the magnetic and light spectrums; the rate and duration of the pulses is an important factor in the AcuPearl technology; (2) Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field therapy (pemf) which uses low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues; and (3) A propriety method called Adaptive Resonance, developed specifically for AcuPearl, which produces resonant interference patterns within the magnetic and light fields that are continually adapted as the device is in use.

G-balance (2)   geabdbff

The Calm/Relax setting works with acute and chronic stress and anxiety, offering a general calming and relaxing effect; the Revitalise program aims to help re-establish a sense of vitality when feeling depleted as a result of prolonged emotional stress and the Sleep setting help to re-establish good sleep patterns for people experiencing sleep disorders due to emotional stress and anxiety.

These AcuPearls can be worn as pendants or on the wrist, or simply kept in a pocket. Their effect can be enhanced by applying them to acupuncture points, making them the 21st Century equivalent of a 5,000 year old proven therapy.

Scientific advance is an ever unfolding process, and although there’s still an awful lot to discover, there are more and more options for anxiety sufferers.  Perhaps the best approach in chronic cases is a multi-faceted approach incorporating natural remedies, lifestyle changes, talking therapies and pemf.

Bioenergetic Healing – the Scientific Basis

Last century astonishing developments took place in physics. For instance, Max Planck discovered the quartation of energy, the young Einstein acknowledged the double nature of quanta as wave-particle effects, and Werner Heisenberg challenged the supremacy of cause and effect in the subatomic realms.


The 1920’s saw the rise of quantum physics and the first inklings of what would come to be known as the ‘nonlocal’ effect.

Nonlocality is ‘action at a distance,’ where measuring an inherent characteristic of one of a quantum pair, such as one electron of a pair of electrons, instantaneously imparts information about or affects the other particle of the pair. In later decades, experiments showed that the well-focused intention of an individual or group can have a material effect on another person, substance or process thousands of miles away.

Radiesthesia is a healing methodology that serves as an example of this non-local effect. It aims to detect ’radiation’ within the body and to then interact with this radiation to exert a beneficial effect. According to the theory, all human bodies give off unique or characteristic ’radiations’. Radiesthesia is cited as the explanation of such phenomena as dowsing by rods and pendulums in order to locate buried objects, diagnose illnesses, and the like.

Following on from Radiesthesia, at the beginning of the 20th Century Dr Albert Abrams developed the method of ‘radionics’. He showed that healthy subjects have certain energy rates moving through their bodies, whereas unhealthy people exhibit different energy rates that define disorders. Radionic devices are used to diagnose rate distortions and send the body the appropriate radionic ‘frequencies’ to balance the discordant frequencies, thereby helping to return the body to health.

Lakhovsy, Burr and Kirlian

In 1925, a Russian engineer, Georges Lakhovsky, showed that every living thing emits electro/magnetic signals, and that a cell’s nucleus acts as an electrical oscillating circuit similar to a radio transmitter and receiver. He was, in time honoured fashion, vilified by his fellow scientists, but when Professor Harold Saxton Burr concluded from a five-year research project in 1945 that ‘all living organisms possess complex electromagnetic fields,’ the scientific community was more willing to accept his findings.

In his book, ‘The Secret of Life,’ published in 1929, Lakhovsky showed that all protoplasm (the living content of a cell that is surrounded by a plasma membrane) emanates radiation which oscillates throughout the body. He invented a healing device, a multiple wave oscillator, which used electromagnetic waves.

During the 1930’s, Professor Burr established that that electro-dynamic fields are responsible for the organisation of biological systems. He successfully demonstrated a field effect, which he named the L-Field (Life Field). The L-Field was a precursor to today’s more sophisticated theories of the human bio-information field.

In 1939, Semyon Kirlian, a Russian scientist, accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of high voltage, the electric field at the edges of the object create an image on the photographic plate. He developed a technique in which a subject is in direct contact with a film placed upon a metal plate charged with high voltage, high frequency electricity. Kirlian claimed that the resulting image was comparable to the human aura.


In the early 1950s, Dr Reinhold Voll and his collaborator Helmut Schimmel developed a device for locating acupuncture points electronically. He then began a search to identify correlations between disease states and changes in the electrical resistance of acupuncture points. His discoveries led to the Vega machine, widely used for diagnosing nutritional and health issues and allergy testing.

Bioresonance therapy

A technique developed in the 1970s called bioresonance therapy, continued in the tradition of Radiesthesia, but used the body’s own information instead of generated rates, and then fed this information back to the body, sometimes in the reverse order so that undesirable effects could be negated. The most famous bioresonance device was marketed as MORA-therapy, in which electrodes that emit alternating currents are applied to the patient’s skin in order to affect the information in the cells.

Dr Fritz-Albert Popp

The study of bioenergetics was further advanced in the 1970s by the discovery of biophotonic emissions — light emitted by living cells, by Dr Fritz-Albert Popp. He demonstrated that the light from living cells spread over a wide range of wavelengths. These ‘biophoton emissions’ provided a communication system for the transfer of information among the trillions of cells in an organism.

Recent decades

The pace of new learning and discovery continues unabated. The 1980s saw major advances in field-based biotechnologies, one of the most successful being the SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) magnetometer. The SQUID is a highly sensitive imaging machine that maps the biomagnetic fields produced by physiological processes within the body.

In the past three decades:

  • Rupert Sheldrake, an English biologist, hypothesised the existence of morphogenetic fields, non-local, non-physical fields that explain where the blueprints that direct the formation of cells, embryos and all living things come from.
  • In 1988, Professor Valerie Hunt recorded the frequency of low voltage signals emanating from the body.
  • Nobel Prize winner Dr John Eccles laid the foundation for investigating neuro-independent consciousness (astonishing since Eccles is a neuroscientist!)
  • Professor William Tiller postulated the existence of subtle energies in his 1997 book, Science and Human Transformation. He claimed they act in concert with human consciousness and also manifest themselves in the practices of healers and other paranormal practitioners. He sees a connection between both physical and nonphysical consciousness and the natural phenomena.
  • Dr Robert Becker, an orthopaedic surgeon, looked into the relationship between human physiology and electricity. He used electricity and electro-magnetic fields to stimulate the mending of broken bones. He also determined the presence of a direct current electrical control system within the body. This system transmitted information through membranes of the glial cells (part of the support system for the nerves and central nervous system).
  • Information physicist Ervin Laszlo proposed the psi-force as a fifth force, additional to the known force fields (gravitation, electromagnetism, weak and strong force) to explain all existence.

Basically, it all comes to oscillation and information exchange. What was previously regarded as secret esoteric knowledge has suddenly become the subject of verifiable scientific research. The young disciplines of quantum biology and biophysics now embrace the study of quantum processes that underlie chemistry, but they are still on the fringe of the conventional medical community. Everything has its place, and those who continue to subscribe to a narrow materialistic view are becoming hopelessly obsolete.

Emerging Technologies

Nowadays many devices demonstrate the use of energy fields in medicine. They are found in clinics and hospitals all over the world. But increasingly the greatest breakthroughs in modern healthcare are coming from devices that are able to directly measure and influence energy and information fields.

Bioenergetic medicine stands at the frontiers of science. It encapsulates biology (the study of life) and physics (as in energy, the underlying animating force of life), and explains how these two disciplines interact. It is concerned with the flow and interaction of information fields within and between living organisms and between living organisms and their environment. This is quantum biology, a developing science, and it is moving in exciting new directions.

Electronic Biofeedback Devices

Various devices have been developed in the past half century which use the well-proven and accepted technology of low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues. For instance, electronic devices such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) use electric currents to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. The TENS unit is usually connected to the skin using two or more electrodes.

Another is Scenar – ‘Self-Controlled Energy Neuro Adaptive Regulation,’ originally developed for the Russian space programme. The Scenar is a hand held biofeedback device which aims to teach the body to heal itself by stimulating the immune system. An electrical contact at one end of the device is placed against the skin which transmits a series of signals and measures the response. Each signal is only sent out when a change in response to the previous signal registers in the electrical properties of the skin. It is this ‘biofeedback’ feature that distinguishes it from TENS machines which send out a consistent continuous signal to

Both TENS and Scenar have proved effective for pain relief in clinical studies when in the hands of a professional practitioner. However, the most advanced device on the market is the AcuPearl, launched in 2015.

Why is the AcuPearl so superior? Because it doesn’t rely on just one modus operandi, like magnetism, but several. It delivers therapeutic effects safely and efficiently using:

  • Low frequency pulsed output of the magnetic and the light spectrums, delivering enhanced effects. The rate and duration of the pulses is an important factor in the AcuPearl technology.
  • The well-proven and accepted therapeutic technology of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy (PEMF) which uses low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues.
  • Adaptive Resonance – a propriety method developed for AcuPearl which produces resonant interference patterns within the magnetic and light fields that are continually adapted in specific ways as the device is used.
  • Light – the Home Use range also has a central red LED (Light Emitting Diode) on the underside of the device which pulsates at a rapid rate designed to help open up the body’s energy channels and energize tissues.

Together the above forms the acronym ‘PEARL’. AcuPearl offers a full range of programs for soothing pain, calming the mind and addressing problems with tissues and joints. Visit www.feelinggoodallthetime.com for further details.


As Victor Hugo famously remarked, ‘Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.’ While bioenergetic healing is as old as civilisation itself, modern science is improving its scope and effectiveness.

Mainstream medicine has its place of course, but it is limited because it is based on traditional biology and chemistry which do not adequately explain many of the workings of the body. Why? Because they fail to recognise that the senior science, which underpins biology and chemistry, is physics. Physics explains why healing methods that use the information network in the body and activate its subtle energies can be effective, a subject about which conventional biology knows next to nothing.

The next few years will doubtless see significant progress. We are on the cusp of realising, at last, that our ancestors were no fools, and that bioenergetic healing should be taken very seriously.

Take responsibility for your health

Health is a priceless asset that we tend to fully appreciate only when we lose it. But how many people really take care of their health in a holistic sense? We live in a land of plenty and medical knowledge has never been greater, yet ill health and obesity are rampant. How can this be? One of the reasons is that relatively few are willing to take full responsibility for their health.

Accepting responsibility is part of being healthy, and part of the healing process when we get ill.

Those who are willing to work with their health practitioner make better recoveries than those who simply want their doctor to ‘fix’ them.  But many people who turn up at practitioners’ consulting rooms are quick to blame events, other people and their genes for their problems, while indulging in unhealthy behaviours that make illness more likely.

Of course, the reasons for illness are many and varied. They may arise from the physical and social environment. However, in the material world, the principle of cause and effect is always with us. Every action has a cause, every actuality has been brought about by contributing causes, and every cause produces an effect.

The prime ‘causes’ are thoughts and imaginings; actions (and their results) are the effects. In other words, life – including our health – responds to what we think, believe, say and do.

If we are unhealthy, we have probably contributed to our situation. Not always, but usually. We may not be aware of what we are doing to ourselves, but we lay down ‘causes’ that shape our lives. Self-empowerment is about being conscious of that fact and becoming aware of what we think, say and do in every moment and how it impacts on us. For:

  • We can choose what we think about.
  • We can choose where we allow our imagination to roam.
  • We can choose to live healthily (or not).
  • We can choose what we say and do in response to what happens around us.


Observe yourself. Listen carefully to your self-talk and see how your core values and beliefs affect you. Carefully note any tendency to:

  • Make excuses.
  • Dwell on the past.
  • Blame others.
  • Deny responsibility for your actions and feelings.
  • Put off taking the rights steps.
  • Allow laziness to interfere with desirable actions.
  • Play the ‘victim’.
  • Want to be ‘fixed’ without doing anything to help yourself.
  • Blame your genes.
  • Pretend that you can’t help the way you feel.

And so on.

How much attention do you pay to what you eat and drink, your breathing, exercise patterns and leisure activities, rest and sleep?

Do you live in an energy-healthy environment, full of natural sunlight and fresh air, or one saturated with electromagnetic radiation from wi fi, mobile phones, kitchen appliances and so on?

Do you have an inclination towards negativity? Negative people expect things to go wrong and aren’t surprised when they do. Then they give up.

Obviously it’s quite a challenge to stay positive all the time, especially if you’re ill, but fostering a more positive attitude to life and a belief in recovery can be an important part of the healing process.

No-one else can make your life happen for you. Blaming circumstances (however unfortunate) and other people (however unpleasant) doesn’t change anything; in fact, it makes things worse – you become a victim.

See whatever happens to your health as simply feedback – your body’s response to your habits, your environment and state of mind!

Antibiotics are flooding our planet with superbugs!

‘It is folly to attempt to escape disease by attempting to destroy or escape germs.’

Dr H M Shelton (1885-1985)

Viruses and bacteria are held responsible for most of the world’s health problems. After all, microbes are deadly, aren’t they? Is it not scientifically proven that every disease has its microbes?

The germ theory of disease, which suggests that microorganisms are the cause of disease, is rarely questioned in medical circles. But wait – it’s not that simple. Microbes are everywhere – so how come we aren’t all ill all of the time? The answer is, microbes are not always harmful. They’re not even usually harmful. Evenso, it’s convenient for the bio-chemical industry to over-emphasise the influence of microbes because it helps increase sales.

Think about it: viruses and bacteria are present in our system 100% of the time. We are literally teeming with them. But only around a hundred bacteria are potentially harmful to us.

Moreover, the same microbes affect people differently. Some get ill, most don’t. So it can’t be the microbes alone that make us ill! Something else must happen – something to do with each individual.

There is nothing new about this. In his 1928 paper, ‘The Causes Of Disease, Herbert Shelton points out that germs are a cause of disease, but they do not constitute the cause of disease. The full text is available at http://naturalhygienesociety.org/review/0801/shelton-disease-causes.html

Medical science’s response to potentially harmful microbes centres on two approaches – antibiotics and vaccines. The first kills the microbes, the second aims to strengthen the body’s immune system to it is better able to withstand the invaders.


The word antibiotic came from ‘antibiosis’, a term coined in 1889 by Pasteur’s pupil Paul Vuillemin, meaning a process by which life could be used to destroy life.

Traditionally antibiotics were natural substances that were used to inhibit other organisms. The ancient Egyptians, Chinese and Native Americans all used moulds to treat infected wounds, although they did not understand exactly how the antibacterial properties of mould treated diseases. Honey, lard, garlic, onions, wine and vinegar are also among the many other substances traditionally used for this purpose.

As Pasteur’s Germ Theory became widely accepted, it triggered a search for more effective antibiotics. In the late 19th Century, Joseph Lister looked into the reasons why urine contaminated with mould would not allow bacteria to grow. Then two German doctors, Rudolf Emmerich and Oscar Low, grew the germs from infected bandages in a test tube and used this to kill other types of germ. This became the first antibiotic to be used in hospitals, but results were inconsistent so it was abandoned. However, the idea that the germs that could cause one disease could be the cure for another was not lost on he scientific community.

The biggest breakthrough came in 1928 when Sir Alexander Fleming noticed that colonies of the bacterium Staphylococcus Aureus could be destroyed by the mould Penicillium Notatum. At the time, the importance of his discovery was not recognised. Only in the 1940’s did the use of penicillin become widespread. Seventy years on, penicillin is still one of the most widely used antibiotics.

Until the 1990s, most antibiotics did a good job at eliminating infection. They were so effective that doctors were convinced they had solved the problem of bacterial infection once and for all. But what they hadn’t reckoned on was the over-prescribing of antibiotics to treat relatively minor ailments like colds and minor inflammations which unwittingly allowed bacteria to build up their resistance. It is now widely recognised that bacteria are continually mutating and multiplying into even more deadly strains and finding ways to beat our defences.

Microbes are intelligent. They are just as capable of defending themselves when their survival is threatened as we are.

Today the over-use of antibiotics – once seen as the ultimate cure for all infections – is a major health concern. ‘Superbugs’ like MRSA are impervious to our best efforts to eliminate them and some microbiologists fear that the problem has gone beyond our control. An estimated ten thousand people a year die from a hospital-acquired infection in the UK alone, of which 70% are from MRSA. An even more deadly strain, C-difficile, is on the rise, and a new bug, PVL, has already killed several people. And that’s in spite of a highly publicised government initiative to promote cleanliness and better infection management in hospitals.

Modern medicine

The problem with antibiotics arises precisely because they are so effective. They are indiscriminate. They kill all bacteria with which they come into contact, good and bad alike. Many of the body’s functions rely on bacteria, so killing of  the good bacteria makes the body more likely to succumb to harmful bacteria.

Just as worrying, antibiotics are widely used in factory farming. Virtually all animals are given them. Then they end up in meat, which contributes to our society-wide resistance to antibiotics. This is a direct result of factory farming: when animals are free to roam in large pastures, the risk of disease is much lower, so the ‘need’ for antibiotics is dramatically reduced.

That’s not to say that antibiotics don’t have a place in modern medicine.  They have saved many lives and helped to restore many to full health. But they must be used correctly and sparingly, and anyone tasking antibiotics must be sure to replace the bacteria in the gut by taking probiotics.

The truth is, except in severe cases of infection, antibiotics make us more, not less, vulnerable to disease. Medics admit that bacterial resistance is growing faster than the ability of new antibiotics to control them. Bacteria divide rapidly and you only need one to mutate to start an epidemic.

In future, better ways of eliminating harmful microbes may be found. For example, a ten second blast of ultraviolet light correctly targeted has been shown to kill harmful bacteria. It is already being used in hospitals, and recent technological advances have made it quicker and more effective than before. Modern UV devices are as small as a mobile phone and far less messy to use than disinfectant and a cloth.

Similarly, sophisticated PEMF devices like the AcuPearl (www.feelinggoodallthetime.com) help strengthen the body’s natural rhythms and immunity at cellular level creating an environment which discourages microbes from taking hold.

Microbes exist for a reason. They share this planet with us and to eliminate them would be both impossible – and undesirable. Remedies designed merely to kill microbes are often ineffective in the long term and sometimes self-defeating since microbes fight back. That’s a hard lesson for some.
