Text of a Paper presented at the 3rd World Congress of Alternative Medicine, Colombo, 22nd October, 1982.
The Field Resonance Approach in Medicine is based on the theory that the highest level of organization of a living organism is not physical but one of the complex energy structures of an electro-magnetic or similar kind.
The world is made up of energy structures. Structures that are non-material and that resonate. The most easily shown example of an energy structure I can think of is that of a magnet. With a piece of paper and a handfull of iron fillings anybody can see the energy field of the magnet.
And also how the energy fields of two magnets interfere with each other, when they get close enough. Every physical structure has energy fields. Prof. Harold Saxton Burr of Yale University in the United States, after 40 years of painstaking research showed that all living organisms do indeed have an energy field, which he learnt to measure and analyze with a special electronic instrument he built himself. He also showed that the energy fields of living oganisms (he called them L-fields - L for Life) show continuous, mostly cyclic variations. Some of these variations coincide with the diurnal cycle (or the so called circadian rythms, i.e. the 24-hour cycle), others coincide with the sunspot cycle, which - as has been clearly demonstrated by other researchers - is related to planetary configurations. Others again coincide with the lunar cycle, and so on. Burr also discovered that he could predict illness through the changes in the L-field, before any physical symptoms of illness could be registered.
Maybe the most revolutionary and transcendental discovery Burr made during his research with L-fields, was that the field exists by itself before any trace can be seen of the physical formation to which it corresponds. It cannot, therefore, be an emanation from the physical structure. Burr's conclusion was, inevitably, that the L-field is the organizing principle behind the physical structure, or the program that organizes the atoms and molucules into cells and organs, and conditions them to certain forms and functions.
Impulses generated within this energy field are translated into chemical language by the endocrine glands, notably the pineal and pituitary. Chemical instructions from the glands are in their turn transformed into physiological building, decomposition or elimination processes that become visible as physical forms shaping or disintegrating. This means that the only level of treatment that cannot be overruled is that of the L-field itself, which is a vibrating, that is wave-producing, energy structure. Characteristic of such a structure is its ability to resonate, that is pick up certain vibratory characteristics from waves produced by other structures.
The L-field can be influenced by many different agents, but they all have one thing in common: They produce radiation which effect the L-field by way of resonance or interference, thus intensifying or disturbing its own natural wave-pattern. Among these agents we have cosmic influences, such as, the energies generated by the movements of the planets, electric charges of the air, such as, positively charged ions, musical notes (which are specific wavelengths of sound), colours (which are specific wavelengths of light), all kinds of radiation like X-rays etc. Radionics is entirely based on this level and is trying to codify this knowledge into a manageable techinque. Radionics is founded on the holographic principle of the Universe, which means that each of the parts of a whole contains the complete picture of the whole, a principle that is also visible at the cell-level, where each cell carries the DNA molucule carrying the genetic program of the entire organism.
Homeopathy too works on the L-field level, and that would explain the effect of the extremely small doses of the active substances. Acupuncture difinitely works on the L-field level, although the mechanism is not yet understood. Pulse diagnosis in Acupuncture, as we all know, can foretell faults in the energy structure not yet manifested in physical symptoms, just as Burr and Kirlian could with their respective methods.
It is my conviction that cancer causing agents produce their effect through the weakening or change of the cells' normal vibratory frequencies and thereby change their pre-set or inherited program of behaviour, causing them to eventually go wild or be taken over, as it were, by a foreign wave-pattern which breaks up the indigenous bio-structure of the organism. It is well known that many types of radiation cause cancer, as well as many chemical agents such as tar develops the disease. German biophysicist F. A. Popp at the Unversity of Marburg says that each living cell has a standing wave-field, principally consisting of one sound-wave and one heat-wave within the infrared part of the electro-magnetic spectrum. This wave-field functions as a kind of defense system that wards off disturbing electro-magnetic influences from outside. It also works as a carrier of biological information. Cancer growth can, according to Popp, be caused by laser-active substances that interfere irreversibly with the standing wave-fields of cells, provoking an increase in their wavelength with at least 25%, which would change their program code and enable them to divide and multiply in a wild fashion.
This brings in parenthesis : I have given a good deal of thought to the nature and cure of cancer. I have come to the conclusion that official institutional medicine in the West with all its massive financial support is fumbling in complete darkness. There is no simple cure to cancer, like a pill or a certain type of radiation: Cancer is caused and has to be fought on 3 different levels simultaneously.
The first may be the elimination of cancer cells. This can usually be done by natural anti-cancer food which contains what could be called selective cell-poison attacking only cancer cells and not heathy structure, while even at the same time strengthening the self-defending energies of the body.
The second level is reinforcing the natural energy structures in two ways :
a.. Eliminating toxins and clogging substances that constitute a burden to the organism, impede circulation and drain its energies thus weakening its defense systems;
b.. Supplying extra vital energy through breathing fresh and energy-charged air and eating energy-laden pure food.
The third level is just as important, if not more so, than the two previously mentioned : it is the psychological level, both that of conscious thoughts and above all that of subconscious emotional reflexes or programming. There has to be a determination by the individual to live on, and therefore there has to be a deeply rooted motivation and satisfaction that it is worth while continuing the present existance. If this is lacking, no treatment on the physical and energy levels can save the patient in the long run.
I believe most people who die from cancer, at a deep unconscious level, either just don't want to stick around any more, or respond to a program they previously set themselves, that when certain conditions had been fulfilled, or were not present any more, they would have completed their life cycle or done their job, and would no longer have a reason to live. We must not forget that thoughts and emotions are also powerful wave generators which can energize or disturb the L-field.
Another interesting question is that of transplants. The immune reaction could very well be a function of whether the individual energy structure of donor resonates harmoniously with that of the receiver or not. With Burr's or Kirlian's methods of analysing the energy structures of the human organism, it is most likely that a simple technique could be established which tells the surgeon beforehand whether rejection of the transplanted organ will occur or not. Another way of pre-establishing compatibility or the risk of rejection in transplantation might be a comparison of the astrological birth charts of the donor and the receiver. This indeed quite likely, and I am absolutely convinced, that massive reasearch in medical astrology with the help of modern electronic measuring techniques and computers could prove to be the greatest breakthrough in the history of medicine, in comparison with which even such notable feats as the discovery of vaccines and antibiotics would look insignificant in restrospect. Who will write medical history by making funds available for this kind of epoch-making research?
In an article in the May 1981 issue of Scientific American three physicists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technolgy wrote about "highly excited atoms". From that article we learn that electrons emit electro-magnetic radiation with a frequency corresponding to its orbit and that its energy depends on its distance from the nucleus. As you know, the electron is orbiting the nucleus of the atom very much like a planet orbits the Sun. So, translated to the solar system, this means that the planets radiate energy corresponding to their distance from the Sun and also that the more distant a planet is, the higher is its energy level. This provides a good explanation to the fact observed by astrologers and mechanically looked upon as preposterous by gravity-fixed astronomers and other materialistic scientists, namely that the more distant the planet, the greater its impact in terms of energy discharge, regardless of size or mass. Pluto has the greatest impact of all the known planets, being the most distant and one of the smallest of the planets.
One of the latest achievements in applied nuclear physics, the synchrotron radiation generator, confirms this theory. Electrons forced to move in orbit of a certain diameter produced ultra-violet rays, whereas electrons forced to move in a larger orbit produced X-rays.
There are two magnetic interactions associated with an electron from the elementary perspective of Danish Noble Prize winner Niels Bohr, a physicist comparable to Einstein in importance. The first of these interactions is that an electron moving in an orbit is equivalent to a small electric current flowing in a loop of wire; the moving electron is a tiny electro-magnet which causes the lines of the atomic spectrum to be shifted in frequency. The second interaction is that when a magnetic field perpendicular to the electron's orbit increases, it gives rise to an electric field, the current of which is proportionate to the area of the orbit of the electron.
Translated into the Solar system, this means that each planet, corresponding to an electron, is an electro-magnet causing the energy-lines of the Solar system to shift in frequency. It also means that, as the Sun's magnetic field changes - which it does continuously - each planet induces an electric field, the current of which is proportionate to its distance from the Sun.
Again support for the observation that the more distant the planet, the more potent it is as an energy generator or discharger. The researchers at the M.I.T. finish with the following conclusion: "Apparently Nature still has surprises in store, even in the simplest systems, provided we make the effort to look".
We have had a few clues to the way the planets can effect our lives. In resume, the waves emitted by the Cosmos reach us refracted through the magnetic field of the Earth and can affect us through resonance or interference with our own energy fields. But how, exactly does this happen? My theory is that it happens via the glandular system.
Chakras are centres in our energy fields, a kind of transformer stations for our vital energy, and they seem to be intimately linked with the glands. The glandular system is build up as a hierarchy with the pineal and pituitary glands at the top. Until quite recently western medical science knew practically nothing about the pineal gland. Also the pituitary gland was very little understood. On the whole this is still true.
Among the few things we do know about the pineal gland are the following : Together with the pituitary and the hypothalamus, the pineal gland directs, via the hormones it produces, the activities of other glands. So, for instance, does the pineal gland give signals to the reproductive system, and it is the pineal gland that sets child birth in motion by producing a hormone that makes the matrix contract and expel the baby from womb.
Secondly, the pineal gland is sensitive to ultra-violet radiation, i.e. waves emitted by the Sun.
When there is no light, the pineal gland produces a hormone called melatonin, which inhibits sexual activity and fertility. When there is light, however, the pineal gland produces another hormone called seratonin, which curbs melatonin production and stimulates sexual drive and fertility. The transformation of melatonin into seratonin or vice versa is performed with the help of ions of iron. From these established scientific facts, two observations are of the prime importance: first is that the gland reacts to electro-magnetic vibrations of a certain wavelength. If one gland reacts to one type of electro-magnetic waves, then it is no longer superstitious nonsense to assume that the same gland or other glands - may react also to other electro-magnetic wavelengths. The second observation is that metal ions participate in the production of the hormones that actually direct the physiological processes of the body and thus indirectly run the whole show including metabolism, growth, regeneration of cells functioning of the various organs etc. In the case of melatonin it was iron, but there are excellent reasons to assume that other metals, notably magnesium, copper, mercury, lead, zinc along with several other, play just as important a role for the glandular chemistry of the body.
This leads us to look at some sensational reasearch, performed first on the initiative of Rudolf Steiner by Mrs. L. Kolisko nearly 60 years ago and since then repeated many times, latest to my knowledge by the English chemist of Swedish descent Nick Kollerstrom. This research shows in as scientific way as anyone can demand that metal ions react to planetary vibrations, and not only that, but that each of them is sensitive only to the planet with which astrological tradition has always connected them. These experiments showed that lead ions react to Saturn, iron to Mars and silver to the Moon. So to sum up, we have glands sensitive to electro-magnetic vibrations, like waves from the Sun and planets. These glands use metal ions in order to produce the hormones through which they govern chemically the functions of the organs. These metal ions have been proved to react to the vibrations of certain planets.
In view of the knowledge thus gained it seems reasonable to hypothesize that the metals with their special magnetic and electric properties, act as translators of the vital cosmic energies into the chemical language of the body.
Dr. Erik Bergstrom discovered that his acupuncture treatment did not work as it should in patients with serious mineral deficiencies. Dr. Lars-Olof Berglof, in Stockholm, found upon closer observation that unsuccessful treatment turned out to be linked with certain mental attitudes rooted in the unconscious or in emotional stress situations which caused imbalances or faults in the energy field.
As long as this emotional or mental stress persisted, the illness would not respond to treatment, or would recur after a short time. Dr. Berglof found that a way to cure this kind of patient was a course in mind control. The patient was taught to relax and dissolve the emotionally conditioned block or strain by positive reprogramming of his or her reflexes on an unconscious level. Once this was achieved, the illness often disappeared by itself, as the energy resumed a free and balanced flow. And if the illness did not recede spontaneously, the patient would at least be receptive to the treatment, which would now be effective and give the expected result.
