The primary foundational concept of the Natural Health Science System (NHSS) is: The human organism is designed to strive toward health, not disease. Disease is often a defensive reaction brought about by poor lifestyle habits. Therefore, the power to cure disease resides only within the patient’s body, but that innate power cannot fully prevail until wrong living habits stop and the fundamental elements of life and health, in necessary measure, have been set in place, namely: proper diet; pure water; fresh air; sunlight; adequate exercise, warmth, rest and sleep; emotional harmony; proper posture.
If a substance is not fundamental to the health of the body, it’s also not fundamental to disease treatment. From this view comes the most important therapeutic principle of traditional naturopathy: Disease treatment must always begin with the restoration of the fundamental elements of life in accordance with the needs and tolerances of the individual.
Once the effort toward this restoration of the fundamental elements of life and health is underway, adjunctive therapies may prove of to be highly complementary. In the NHSS, one of the major adjunctive therapies used is pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy. In the article that follows, I discuss PEMFs and why they are worthy of consideration for those who are seeking to improve mind, body and spirit wellbeing.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields
The Earth’s magnetic fields, produced primarily by fluxes in the molten metal in the planet’s outer core, extends from that core to where it encounters the solar wind projected by the sun. This magnetic field protects the Earth from these solar winds, which would otherwise destroy the atmosphere’s shielding ozone layer. The ionosphere, the layer of the atmosphere that is a complex electrical system, also generates electromagnetic fields.
Our entire planet is covered with magnetic fields (not only from the core and ionosphere, but from naturally magnetized rocks and other sources) that are essential for the existence and functioning of all plants and animals. From the initial embryonic stage through all of adulthood the human organism is completely immersed within the Earth’s magnetic fields.
The bodies of all animals including humans contain trace amounts of highly magnetically-sensitive magnetite that enables the brain to act as both a transmitter and receiver of energy and signals. Accordingly, the body is a dynamic, continuously modulating bioelectric and biomagnetic organism, whose behavior is governed by the physical laws of electromagnetism. Although the body’s electromagnetic fields are relatively weak, the integration of its magnetic and biophysical aspects is essential for all physiological functioning.
The body of an adult is composed of between 50 to 100 trillion cells. Clearly, a highly sophisticated network of intercellular and intracellular communications is required to maintain organized functioning of all these cells. In fact, the processes of aging and chronic disease development are, in part, the product of a breakdown in these communications.
In addition to the naturally occurring magnetic fields, the planet is now also saturated with artificially generated electromagnetic fields from electronic devices such as televisions, computers, cell phones and power lines. As the human organism, like all the Earth’s living organisms (plant and animal), is attuned by Nature to the planet’s natural electromagnetic frequencies, these artificially generated electromagnetic fields interrupt an individual’s inherent wave resonance with the rhythms of the natural world.
The Human Being is a Bio-Electromagnetic Organism
From the earliest recorded history of medicine, Greek physicians and scientists were intrigued with magnetic substances and the way in which they affected the human body. Historically, static magnets were used and studied by renowned physicians including in the 16th century by William Gilbert, the personal physician to Queen Elizabeth I.
In modern times in the United States, Dr. Robert O. Becker and Dr. Reuven Sandyk are some of the visionary scientists that have worked with application of bioelectric and bio-electromagnetic fields for healing.
Becker, in his book The Body Electric, challenges the established mechanistic understanding of the body. He found clues to the healing process in the long-discarded theory that electricity is vital to life. The Body Electric explores new pathways in our understanding of evolution, acupuncture, psychic phenomena, and healing.
In numerous studies, Dr. Sandyk reported on the detrimental effects of calcification of the pineal gland (a small gland located in the middle of the brain that is the major site for melatonin secretion, the hormone that regulates the body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm). Fluoride, widely added to municipal water supplies and dental hygiene products, is notorious for encouraging pineal calcification. Notably, pineal calcification is commonest in countries that have high rates of breast cancer and lowest in areas with a low incidence of that disease.
Sandyk conducted many experiments wherein he successfully treated neurological conditions using low-intensity pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). Importantly, the association of the pineal gland with the Third Eye (6th) chakra suggests that its decalcification may significantly improve the degree of connection between one’s everyday consciousness and higher consciousness.
Brainwave entrainment is the practice of stimulating the brain for adjusting the brain activity conducive to the body’s circadian rhythm requirements. Brain stimulation using electromagnetic fields for enhanced cognitive and emotional behavior has long been researched.
This entrainment also assists the higher soul in its efforts to reassert its natural governance, and thus, infuse one’s primary consciousness with spiritual guidance. As ultimately, mind, body and spirit are indivisible, this helps explain why PEMF therapy often not only boosts both mental and physical performance, but spiritual connection as well.
PEMF Therapy and Rootedness
For many years, I have been practicing qigong (aka chi kung), an ancient Chinese healing art that employs coordinated movement, breathing, and meditation to support both health and spiritual connection.
In qigong, emphasis is placed upon rootedness to the Earth via the exertion of pressure upon various areas of the sole of the foot and the grasping of the ground with the toes. In Iron Shirt Chi Kung, qigong master Mantak Chia writes: “At the spiritual level of rooting it is important to know that, as there is a Father Heaven, so there is a Mother Earth. In the spiritual levels of practice many people want to raise themselves to a higher level to be filled with spiritual energy. If you want to go higher you must take care that your foundation, your rooting is good. The connection between heaven and Earth is most important in the Taoist practices [Taoism was one of the main contributors to the development of qigong]. In the higher practices the ground energy from Mother Earth is equally important to the spiritual energy from Father Heaven.”
The modern individual has become egregiously estranged from Earth-rootedness and this is a major factor in all the chronic ailments and psychospiritual stuckness that now afflicts humankind. I find the use of PEMFs attuned to the Earth’s natural electromagnetic frequencies is another important method for increasing rootedness via vibrational resonance with those frequencies.
SPE Gemstone Essences Charge with Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields
The art of Spiritual PhytoEssencing (SPE) features not only the use of essential oil blends but also 53 different gemstone essences (available at this time only to SPE students, my personal clients and professionals in the healing arts). I have personally prepared all 53 of the mother essences using a method of extraction I have developed called the SPE Natural Universe Method.
After months of energy purification of the stones (complete details about the SPE Natural Universe Method will be presented in a future article), the gemstone mother essences are then prepared by exposure of the stone (e.g., diamond), placed in a bowl of distilled, mountain rain water for an entire cycle of sun and moon (and stars) and then again early morning sun. I construct a vibratory field around the bowl using highly vibratory stones.
The next morning, while exposed to the full spectrum induction light, I introduce specific frequencies of pulsed electromagnetic fields that fall within the range of those produced by the Earth’s magnetic field (either from the Earth’s core or from its upper atmosphere). I select different frequencies based upon the energetics of the specific stone’s within the bowl of mother essence.
These pulsed electromagnetic fields not only enhance the extraction of the stone’s essence into the water but are also perceived and recorded by those stones and their wave forms become an integral part of the mother essence. Accordingly, when one takes Azurite essence, one also experiences 8.4 Hz electromagnetic wave energy – a very nurturing frequency. With Blue Tourmaline, one experiences 7.8 Hz, a frequency that aids spirit connection. With Mook Jasper, the protective and relaxing 9.6 Hz frequency, etc.
Frequencies such as 7.8Hz and 7.9 Hz are generated in the ionosphere and are associated with the Schumann Resonances. I have found these frequencies to be a particularly restful for meditation, contemplation and connection to spirit.
The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth’s electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth’s surface and the ionosphere.
In conjunction with the full spectrum lighting (I use a full-spectrum Tesla induction light) and the diffusion of the essential oils (associated with the specific gemstone from which the mother essence is being derived), this PEMF component of the SPE Natural Universe Method creates an enveloping atmosphere of healing wave forms that are recorded by the information storage aspect of the gemstone and subsequently diffused into the mother essence.
PEMF Therapy Devices
Applying PEMF therapy is as simple as lying on a PEMF mat for just 30 mins before bedtime. When good circadian rhythm or deep sleep has been established by daily use, it can lead not only to higher disposable daytime energy levels and faster recovery from stress and injuries, but also enhanced cognitive function.
A whole-body PEMF mat can help balance the neuroendocrine function. Local PEMF application (using a smaller PEMF pad) can also prove of very good service for pain and inflammation. The MiniMat is a nice full featured pillow sized PEMF device that is large enough to place a few gemstones on.
I find have found PEMF therapy to be very balancing, relaxing and supportive of recovery power. Many have reported improved sleep quality, better cognitive functions, reduced pain levels and a general feeling of better mind/body/spirit integration.
