Radionics as a healing art originated from the research of the
distinguished American physicians Dr. Albert Abrams.   He was born
in San Francisco in 1863 and became one of the most highly
qualified specialists of his day.    A graduate of the University of
California, he wrote several medical text books and eventually won
for himself a national reputation as a specialist in diseases of the
nervous system.

In the course of his research Abrams made the startling discovery
that diseases could be measured in terms of energy,
and he devised
and instrument which calibrated dials which enabled him to identify
and measure disease reactions and intensities.

Who & Why
May The Force Be With You?
Guess What - IT ALREADY IS!!!
There are so many healing powers out there in nature that we
overlook or take them for granted.  

The human body is a sensitive, evolved temple that is able to
repair itself completely.   We often hear that the body exists in a
fragile state, is prone to illness, and can simply wear out through
illness or neglect.  While it is true that we should care for
ourselves proactively so that we do not fall ill.
Permeating every created
substance (or essence)
in the universe is 'energy'.   
 Physical science does not
tell us what energy is.
It merely tells us that
"energy is the capacity to
do work".   
What that 'capacity' is,
it is incapable of saying!    
Our attempted definition of
'energy' is 'that creative
essence in all things that
allows all things to be'.
One of Abrams’ fundamental
propositions is that everything which
exists has a unique vibrational
signature.
 These signatures are
represented in Radionics by a system of
codes, each of which is known as a Rate.
The Rates are used as the focal point for
both testing and treatment
Radionics normally uses energy
patterns to correct the imbalances
found by the practitioner.
These patterns
include, for example, Homoeopathic
remedies.
A New Idea To Consider:

There is an idea that the all
creative principle in the
universe and within yourself
has the capacity to heal!
Fundamental to radionics is the view that a living body
has a subtle energy field which sustains and vitalises it.

If the field is weakened, for example by stress or pollution, then
eventually the physical body also becomes weak, leaving it
susceptible to illness.
The aim of radionics is to identify the
weaknesses in this field and to correct them, and thereby
alleviate or prevent physical or emotional dis-ease.     

This subtle field cannot be accessed using our conventional
senses.   Radionic practitioners use a specialised  techniques
and equipment  to both identify the sources of weakness in the
field and to select specific treatments to overcome them.  
Here is what the  The National Center for
Complementary and Alternative Medicine  has to say
about the idea of energy fields in the body:


The National Center for Complementary and Alternative
Medicine (NCCAM) is the Federal Government's lead agency for
scientific research on complementary and alternative medicine

(CAM).   They are 1 of the 27 institutes and centers that make up the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) within the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services.


Energy medicine is  deals with energy fields of two
types
of energy:

1: Veritable, which can be measured

2: Putative, which have yet to be measured


The veritable energies employ mechanical vibrations (such as
sound) and electromagnetic forces, including visible light, magnetism,
monochromatic radiation (such as laser beams), and rays from other
parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. They involve the use of
specific, measurable wavelengths and frequencies to treat patients.

In contrast, putative energy fields (also called biofields) have defied
measurement to date by reproducible methods.
Therapies involving
putative energy fields are based on the concept that human
beings are infused with a subtle form of energy. This vital energy
or life force is known under different names in different cultures,
such as qi in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), ki in the
Japanese Kampo system, doshas in Ayurvedic medicine, and
elsewhere as prana, etheric energy, fohat, orgone, odic force,
mana, and homeopathic resonance
.

Vital energy is believed to flow throughout the material
human body,
but it has not been unequivocally measured by
means of conventional instrumentation. Nonetheless, therapists claim
that they can work with this subtle energy, see it with their own eyes,
and use it to effect changes in the physical body and influence health.

Practitioners of energy medicine believe that illness results from
disturbances of these subtle energies (the biofield)
. For example,
more than 2,000 years ago, Asian practitioners
postulated that the flow and balance of life energies are
necessary for maintaining health and described tools to
restore them.
Herbal medicine, acupuncture, acupressure,
moxibustion, and cupping, for example, are all believed to act by
correcting imbalances in the internal biofield, such as by restoring the
flow of qi through meridians to reinstate health. Some therapists are
believed to emit or transmit the vital energy (external qi) to a recipient
to restore health.

Examples of practices involving putative energy fields include:

Reiki and Johrei, both of Japanese origin  Qi gong, a Chinese practice
Healing touch, in which the therapist is purported to identify
imbalances and correct a client's energy by passing his or her hands
over the patient   Intercessory prayer, in which a person intercedes
through prayer on behalf of another

In the aggregate, these approaches are among the most controversial
of CAM practices because neither the external energy fields nor their
therapeutic effects have been demonstrated convincingly by any
biophysical means.
Yet, energy medicine is gaining popularity in
the American marketplace and has become a subject of
investigations at some academic medical centers.
A recent
National Center for Health Statistics survey indicated that
approximately 1 percent of the participants had used Reiki, 0.5 percent
had used qi gong, and 4.6 percent had used some kind of healing
ritual.5



Scope of the Research


Veritable Energy Medicine

There are many well-established uses for the application of
measurable energy fields to diagnose or treat diseases:

electromagnetic fields in magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac
pacemakers, radiation therapy, ultraviolet light for psoriasis, laser
keratoplasty, and more. There are many other claimed uses as well.
The ability to deliver quantifiable amounts of energies across the
electromagnetic spectrum is an advantage to studies of their
mechanisms and clinical effects. For example, both static and pulsating
electromagnetic therapies have been employed.


Magnetic Therapy

Static magnets have been used for centuries in efforts to relieve pain
or to obtain other alleged benefits (e.g., increased energy).
Numerous anecdotal reports have indicated that individuals have
experienced significant, and at times dramatic, relief of pain after
the application of static magnets over a painful area.
Although the
literature on the biological effects of magnetic fields is growing, there is
a paucity of data from well-structured, clinically sound studies.
However,
there is growing evidence that magnetic fields can
influence physiological processes.
It has recently been shown that
static magnetic fields affect the microvasculature of skeletal muscle.   
Microvessels that are initially dilated respond to a magnetic field by
constricting, and microvessels that are initially constricted respond by
dilating. These results suggest that static magnetic fields may have a
beneficial role in treating edema or ischemic conditions, but there is no
proof that they do.

Pulsating electromagnetic therapy has been in use for the
past 40 years.
A well-recognized and standard use is to
enhance the healing of nonunion fractures. It also has
been claimed that this therapy is effective in treating
osteoarthritis, migraine headaches, multiple sclerosis,
and sleep disorders
.  Some animal and cell culture studies have
been conducted to elucidate the basic mechanism of the pulsating
electromagnetic therapy effect, such as cell proliferation and
cell-surface binding for growth factors. However, detailed data on the
mechanisms of action are still lacking.
(Helen aged 70+ used pulsating electrotherapy for pain management)

Millimeter Wave Therapy

Low-power millimeter wave (MW) irradiation elicits biological effects,
and clinicians
in Russia and other parts of Eastern Europe have
used it in past decades to treat a variety of conditions, ranging
from skin diseases and wound healing to various types of
cancer, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular diseases, and
psychiatric illnesses.
In spite of an increasing number of in vivo and in vitro studies, the
nature of MW action is not well understood.
It has been shown, for
example, that MW irradiation can augment T-cell mediated
immunity in vitro.  However, the mechanisms by which MW
irradiation enhances T-cell functions are not known.
Some studies
indicate that pretreating mice with naloxone may block the hypoalgesic
and antipruritic effects of MW irradiation, suggesting that endogenous
opioids are involved in MW therapy-induced hypoalgesia. Theoretical
and experimental data show that nearly all the MW energy is absorbed
in the superficial layers of skin, but it is not clear how the energy
absorbed by keratinocytes, the main constituents of epidermis, is
transmitted to elicit the therapeutic effect.   It is also unclear whether
MW yields clinical effects beyond a placebo response.

Sound Energy Therapy

Sound energy therapy, sometimes referred to as vibrational
or frequency therapy, includes music therapy
as well as
wind chime and tuning fork therapy.   
The presumptive basis of its
effect is that specific sound frequencies resonate with specific
organs of the body to heal and support the body.
Music therapy has been the most studied among these
interventions, with studies dating back to the 1920s, when it was
reported that music affected blood pressure.
Other studies have suggested that music can help
reduce pain and anxiety.
Music and imagery, alone and in
combination, have been used to entrain mood states, reduce acute or
chronic pain, and alter certain biochemicals, such as plasma
beta-endorphin levels.12 These uses of energy fields truly overlap with
the domain of mind-body medicine. (For more information, see
NCCAM's backgrounder "Mind-Body Medicine: An Overview.")

Light Therapy

Light therapy is the use of natural or artificial light to treat various
ailments, but unproven uses of light extend to lasers, colors, and
monochromatic lights.
High-intensity light therapy has been
documented to be useful for seasonal affective disorder,

with less evidence for its usefulness in the treatment of more general
forms of depression and sleep disorders.  Hormonal changes have
been detected after treatment.   Although low-level laser therapy is
claimed to be useful for relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and
helping to heal wounds, strong scientific proof of these effects is still
needed.

Energy Medicine Involving Putative Energy Fields

The concept that sickness and disease arise from imbalances
in the vital energy field of the body has led to many forms of
therapy.
In TCM, a series of approaches are taken to rectify the flow of qi, such
as herbal medicine, acupuncture (and its various versions), qi gong,
diet, and behavior changes.

Acupuncture

Of these approaches, acupuncture is the most prominent therapy to
promote qi flow along the meridians. A
cupuncture has been
extensively studied and has been shown to be effective in
treating some conditions, particularly certain forms of pain.  
  
However, its mechanism of action remains to be elucidated. The main
threads of research on acupuncture have shown regional effects on
neurotransmitter expression, but have not validated the existence of
an "energy" per se.

Qi Gong

Qi gong, another energy modality that purportedly can restore health,
is practiced widely in the clinics and hospitals of China.    Most of the
reports were published as abstracts in Chinese, which makes
accessing the information difficult. But Sancier has collected more than
2,000 records in his qi gong database which
indicates that qi gong
has extensive health benefits on conditions ranging from blood
pressure to asthma.
  The reported studies, however, are largely
anecdotal case series and not randomized controlled trials. Few
studies have been conducted outside China and reported in
peer-reviewed journals in English. There have been no large clinical
trials.

Whole Medical Systems and Energy Medicine

Although modalities such as acupuncture and qi gong have been
studied separately, TCM uses combinations of treatments (e.g., herbs,
acupuncture, and qi gong) in practice. Similarly, Ayurvedic medicine
uses combinations of herbal medicine, yoga, meditation, and other
approaches to restore vital energy, particularly at the chakra energy
centers. (For more information on TCM and Ayurvedic medicine, see
NCCAM's backgrounder "Whole Medical Systems: An Overview.")

Homeopathy

One Western approach with implications for energy medicine is
homeopathy.
Homeopaths believe that their remedies
mobilize the body's vital force to orchestrate
coordinated healing responses throughout the
organism.
The body translates the information on the
vital force into local physical changes that lead to
recovery from acute and chronic diseases.

Homeopaths use their assessment of the deficits in vital force to guide
dose (potency) selection and treatment pace, and to judge the likely
clinical course and prognosis. Homeopathic medicine is based on the
principle of similars, and remedies are often prescribed in high
dilutions. In most cases, the dilution may not contain any molecules of
the original agents at all. As a consequence, homoeopathic remedies,
at least when applied in high dilutions, cannot act by pharmacological
means. Theories for a potential mechanism of action invoke the
homeopathic solution, therefore, postulating that information is stored
in the dilution process by physical means. Other than a study reported
by the Benveniste laboratory   and other smaller studies, this
hypothesis has not been supported by scientific research.
There have been numerous clinical studies of homeopathic
approaches, but systematic reviews point out the overall poor quality
and inconsistency of these studies.

Therapeutic Touch and Related Practices

Numerous other practices have evolved over the years to promote or
maintain the balance of vital energy fields in the body.
Examples of
these modalities include Therapeutic Touch, healing touch, Reiki,
Johrei, vortex healing, and polarity therapy.
  All these modalities
involve movement of the practitioner's hands over the patient's body to
become attuned to the condition of the patient, with the idea that by so
doing, the practitioner is able to strengthen and reorient the patient's
energies.

Many small studies of Therapeutic Touch have suggested its
effectiveness in a wide variety of conditions, including wound healing,
osteoarthritis, migraine headaches, and anxiety in burn patients. In a
recent meta-analysis of 11 controlled Therapeutic Touch studies,  
controlled studies had positive outcomes, and  showed no effect; in
one study, the control group healed faster than the Therapeutic Touch
group.   Similarly, Reiki and Johrei practitioners claim that the
therapies boost the body's immune system, enhance the body's ability
to heal itself, and are beneficial for a wide range of problems, such as
stress-related conditions, allergies, heart conditions, high blood
pressure, and chronic pain.   However, there has been little rigorous
scientific research.
Overall, these therapies have impressive
anecdotal evidence, but none has been proven scientifically to
be effective
.

Distant Healing

Proponents of energy field therapies also claim that some of these
therapies can act across long distances. For example, t
he
long-distance effects of external qi gong have been studied in
China
and summarized in the book Scientific Qigong Exploration,
which has been translated into English.    
The studies reported
various healing cases and described the nature of qi as
bidirectional, multifunctional, adaptable to targets, and capable
of effects over long distances.
But none of these claims has been
independently verified.
Another form of distant healing is
intercessory prayer,
in which a person prays for the healing of
another person who is a great distance away, with or without that
person's knowledge. Review of eight nonrandomized and nine
randomized clinical trials published between 2000 and 2002 showed
that the majority of the more rigorous trials do not support the
hypothesis that distant intercessory prayer has specific therapeutic
effects.

Physical Properties of Putative Energy Fields

There has always been an interest in detecting and describing the
physical properties of putative energy fields. Kirlian photography, aura
imaging, and gas discharge visualization are approaches for which
dramatic and unique differences before and after therapeutic energy
attunements or treatments have been claimed.   However, it is not
clear what is being detected or photographed. Early results
demonstrated that gamma radiation levels markedly decreased during
therapy sessions in 100 percent of subjects and at every body site
tested, regardless of which therapist performed the treatment.
Recently replicated studies identified statistically significant decreases
in gamma rays emitted from patients during alternative healing
sessions with trained practitioners.

It has been hypothesized that the body's primary gamma emitter,
potassium-40 (K40), represents a "self-regulation" of energy within the
body and the surrounding electromagnetic field.
 The body's
energy adjustment may result, in part, from the
increased electromagnetic fields surrounding the hands
of the healers.
Furthermore, an extremely sensitive
magnetometer called a superconducting quantum interference
device (SQUID) has been claimed to measure large
frequency-pulsing biomagnetic fields emanating from the hands
of Therapeutic Touch practitioners during therapy.
   In one study,
a simple magnetometer measured and quantified similar
frequency-pulsing biomagnetic fields from the hands of meditators and
practitioners of yoga and qi gong.
These fields were 1,000 times
greater than the strongest human biomagnetic field and were in
the same frequency range as those being tested in medical
research laboratories for use in speeding the healing process of
certain biological tissues.
 This range is low energy and extremely
low frequency, spanning from 2 Hz to 50 Hz. However, there are
considerable technical problems in such research. For example,
SQUID measurement must be conducted under a special shielded
environment, and the connection between electromagnetic field
increases and observed healing benefits reported in the current
literature is missing.

Other studies of putative energies suggested that
energy fields from one person can overlap and interact
with energy fields of other people.


For example, when individuals touch, one person's
electrocardiographic signal is registered in the other
person's electroencephalogram (EEG) and elsewhere
on the other person's body.
 

In addition, one individual's cardiac signal can be
registered in another's EEG recording when two people
sit quietly opposite one another.
HEY!

A conventional
hospital in
Miami is now
using these
methods!
Wonder if this
validates the
whole hippy
'vibes thing?
Our minds possess the power of healing pain and creating joy. If we
use that power along with proper living, a positive attitude, and
meditation, we can heal not only our mental and emotional afflictions,
but even physical problems.

When we cling to our wants and worries with all our energy, we create
only stress and exhaustion. By loosening the attitude that Buddhists
call "grasping at self,"
we can open to our true nature, which is
peaceful and enlightened.
This is an invitation to the awakening
of our inner wisdom, a source of healing we all possess.
Like a door
opening to this wisdom, we can bring in the sunlight, warmth, and
gentle breeze of healing.
The source of this energy is ours to touch
and share at any moment, a universal birthright that can bring us joy
even in a world of suffering and ceaseless change.
There are various methods we can
employ to enhance our body's
ability to regulate immune functions
so that our self-healing
mechanisms can kick into gear,
diminishing the cycle of disease.


It's not as crazy as you might think!
Here is a fun & easy to understand
overview of many different healing
ideas and principles and the
science behind them.  
Fast & Funky Fact:

When individuals touch, one
person's electrocardiographic
signal is registered in the other
person's electroencephalogram
(EEG) and elsewhere on the other
person's body!
