Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system.
Nikola Tesla was the first modern individual to be recognized for manipulating electromagnetic fields for health purposes. His methods and patents in the early 1900s for the Tesla coil were also used for electromagnetic medical devices. 1
These devices were often large round solenoid coils of wire that would surround the patient while they would stand or lie on a bed.
They were energized directly from the 50 or 60 Hz sine wave electrical system. The patient would usually experience an immediate relief in pain.
Tesla’s methods for electro-therapy were originally embraced by electricians who wanted to commercialize electricity however electro-therapeutic devices eventually fell out of favor with doctors when educators in western medical schools chose to only educate medical students in the use of pharmaceuticals and surgery (a result of the infamous Flexner Report 1910).
In addition, a concerted effort by the pharmaceutical industry to discredit electromagnetic therapy caused it to be branded as “quackery” and electrical medical devices were only to be considered for diagnostic purposes such as X-ray. Tesla’s advances were quickly forgotten.
The same could be said of the work of Georges Lakhovsky and his multi-wave oscillator (MWO). By the 1920s, Lakhovsky had clinics all over Europe, delivering his electromagnetic therapy oscillatory, or “vibrational” therapy.
Lakhovsky’s method was so successful he was approached by several hospitals in New York hoping to test his apparatus experimentally. Remarkable results were obtained from a seven-week clinical trial performed at a major New York City hospital and that of a prominent Brooklyn urologist in the summer of 1941.
What seemed like a promising development in the use of the MWO in America quickly faded after Lakhovsky unexpectedly died in New York in 1942 (age 73). A car struck and killed him in a most mysterious manner. His equipment was removed from the hospital and patients were told that the therapy was no longer available.
The murderous hand of Maurice Fishbein (the AMA) and Big Pharma is all over this story. The pharmaceutical companies and doctors figured out they could make a lot of money “treating” people, not making them well, and then getting someone else to pay for it. They continue to ruthlessly discredit valuable therapies that threaten their profits.
However, in the countries not under the sway of Big Pharma, like the former Soviet Union, electromagnetic therapy did not die out, but was further developed and is still widely deployed throughout hospitals.
Their scientists learned that when magnetic fields are pulsed, their effect was considerably enhanced. It covered the innate vibration of a wider range of cells and tissues, Lakhovsky would probably have said.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF) was thus born.
Lower frequencies, that is frequencies below the commercial supply of 50 Hz (60 Hz in the USA) were found to be more biologically effective.
I have already pointed out the work of others (including Robert Becker) in my book “Virtual Medicine”, showing that these extremely low frequencies, or ELFs for short, have higher biological impact and that in the same way less intense fields are more effective biologically (not a case of “more is better”).
With the fall of the Soviet Union, commercial enterprise was now possible with the West, allowing government controlled medical device manufacturers the authority to license their PEMF technology to neighboring countries such as Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Austria who eventually miniaturized and commercialized their products for hospital and home consumer use.
Although electromagnetic therapy has become widely adopted in Western Europe, its use was restricted to animals in North America. Veterinarians became the first health professionals to use PEMF therapy, for healing things like broken legs in race horses.
Professional sports doctors then decided to experiment with veterinarian devices off label on professional athletes which ultimately led to legally licensed devices for human use in the United States – but under strict stipulations that it was not to be used for non-union bone fractures, except under a medical prescription from a licensed doctor.
Based on a 2007 clinical trial, Thomas et al. conclude, “PEMF may be a novel, safe and effective therapeutic tool.” 2
General Health Benefits For Us All
Indeed, that is why cyclotron resonance devices (and dowsers) can detect specific tissues and disease processes.
Lakhovsky tells us that not only do all living cells produce and radiate their own oscillations, but they also receive and respond to oscillations imposed upon them from outside sources. Indeed, that’s why cell phones, microwave radiation and so forth, is so inherently dangerous.
But why not give the cells a dose of healthy, “juicing up” vibrations, the sort that living organisms like? Typically these are low frequency oscillations of ELFs, as they are called (extremely low frequencies).
It is possible to enliven body tissues and healthy physiological mechanisms and structures by using pulsed electromagnetic therapy.
A lot of people have caught onto this idea and it’s working out just fine in practice, with or without the approval of regulatory bodies. As usual, where in one territory you are told it’s illegal and maybe even dangerous, in other parts of the world it’s everyday medicine from properly trained, certified and competent MDs and practitioners.
Wherever you live, you need to know about this up-and-coming therapy.
