Dr. Paul J. Rosch covers Bioelectromagnetic Medicine in his new book of that name, with the electromedical treatment of cancer as well as depression, anxiety, insomnia, tinnitus, migraine, multiple sclerosis, obesity, epilepsy, herniated disc, Parkinson's disease, urinary incontinence, macular degeneration, osteoarthritis, cardiac and brain lesions. Rosch is the president of the American Institute of Stress and clinical professor of medicine at New York Medical College; he has written extensively about relationships between stress and cancer over the past 25 years. He notes the cutting edge approaches are much safer than drugs and surgical procedures, considerably less costly and, in many instances, more effective.
The science of electromedicine, suppressed since the advent of wonder drugs 65 years ago, is perfectly sound. First introduced to the public in Dr. Robert O Becker's book Body Electric, the various bioelectric methods are enjoying renewed application, and cancer and many other diseases are being reverted with electricity and/or magnetic pulses. In fact, the "box that hums" as one M.D. called it, was the tool used by my chiropractor's ten-year old boy in 2005 to cure his osteomyelitis. He treated himself after school while watching TV. I'm sure the prejudiced M.D. would have been as amazed as the boy's attending physicians in Ronald MacDonald Children's Hospital in Vancouver.
Rosch introduces Björn Nordenström, M.D., Ph.D., a man with impeccable credentials; he was formerly chairman of the Department of Radiology at Karolinska Hospital and chairman of the selection committee that picks the Nobel Laureate for Physiology of Medicine.
He is famous for having developed the skinny needle technique for biopsies used by most surgeons and interventional radiologists around the world. About 40 years ago, he became intrigued by the observation that he could occasionally see what appeared to be a halo around malignancies on routine chest X-rays that was not present with benign tumors. His detailed animal experiments later revealed that the reason was malignant tumors had different electrical characteristics from surrounding normal tissue, and he found that correcting this by inserting his skinny needles into these two areas and using them as electrodes to supply weak DC current caused these malignancies to disappear.
Others have now replicated these results and a chapter from Chinese Physicians reports on satisfactory results in over 9,000 patients with these and other malignancies. [this technique enjoys some success even on the home front, where Becker and Beck followers are applying battery power' to skin cancer to effect spontaneous remissions].
Demetrio Sodi Pallares is a respected Mexican cardiologist and the author of 20 books including a dozen on the electrocardiogram. He became internationally famous decades ago for his glucose-insulin-potassium polarizing solution that dramatically improved survival following a heart attack. He subsequently found that the application of a pulsed magnetic field enhanced this effect in injured cells and that combining these treatments provided amazing benefits in other disorders; he has been able to actually reverse advanced metastatic disease and terminal cardiomyopathy. Patients whose life expectancy was a few weeks or months were leading normal lives with no evidence of their disease two or three years later. In “Bioelectromagnetic Medicine” Pallares also discusses patients with pancreatic cancer, which is almost always fatal within a year of detection, and explains why many are well three years later due to his electromedical treatment.
Another chapter describes an electromagnetic device for the treatment of osteoarthritis currently administered in 18 countries at over 500 sites including University affiliated clinics and The American Hospital in Paris. This non-invasive and painless therapy, consisting of treatment for one hour daily over 10 days is reimbursed by fiscal intermediaries and often governmental agencies that are the equivalent of Medicare because of its proven long-term cost effectiveness and superior safety record compared to drugs.
Patients today mainly go abroad to get these inexpensive and proven therapies, but given the low cost and effectiveness, legitimizing them should be a priority for a government that really intends to reduce health care debt.
