The New Diagnostic Systems – energetic scanners
Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique
Russian physicist Konstantin Korotkov developed and updated Kirlian photography through a mechanism he calls the Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) technique. It makes use of state-of-the-art optics, digitized television matrices and a powerful computer.
The GDV machines capture biophoton emissions by ‘evoking’, or stimulating them into an excited state so that they shine millions of times more intensely than normal. Korotkov’s camera takes pictures of the field around each of the 10 fingers, one finger at a time. A computer program then extrapolates from this a real-time image of the ‘biofield’ surrounding the organism and deduces from it the state of the organism’s health.
First used by the Russian Ministry of Health to determine the progress of recovery of people after surgery, GDV soon became widely used in Russia as a diagnostic tool for many illnesses, including cancer and stress, and was even used to assess athletic potential – to predict the psychophysical reserves in athletes training for the Olympics and the likelihood of victory or exhaustion from overtraining. Some 3000 doctors, practitioners and researchers worldwide now use the technology. Korotkov has widely explored the effects of a person’s thoughts on the people surrounding him. Every strong emotion – whether love, hate or anger – produced an extraordinary effect on the light discharge of the recipient. www.korotkov.org
Polycontrast Interference Photography (PIP)
Another type of scanner which purports to use a computer device to read different intensities of light emanating from an individual. Has some evidence of accuracy. In one study, 20 participants were scanned with four different devices assessing ‘auras’ before and after being given ‘charged’ water. Overall, there were significant positive changes in all of the four diagnostic techniques and also there were patterns located across scanning technologies, which provided concurrent validity for the technologies being used. www.biofieldscience.org
NES (Nutri-Energetics Systems)
Another computerized system that purports to be able to multiple scans (up to 200) to read the body’s energetic system and match it with an “ideal” body-field structure. This diagnostic procedure also has ‘infoceuticals’, or liquid remedies, to correct errant frequencies. Claims to correct the field structure in space of the body-field, which then regulates the physical body and help return the body to homeostasis. http://www.nutrienergetics.com
Pulsed electromagnetic fields
Evidence shows that illness may show up as pathological changes in the body’s electromagnetic fields, which, in turn, has led to the development of a number of devices that attempt to regularize the body’s EMFs.
The most effective type of EM field delivers electrical energy in rapidly pulsating bursts (PEMFs). When electromagnetic fields are delivered in rapidly pulsating bursts, they are most beneficial because they mimic the natural electrical currents produced by the body.
The latest devices using pulsed magnetic fields have had remarkable success in healing broken bones, helping wounds to heal, and treating such neurological disorders as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease. They’ve even found favor in treating mental illness.
A number of practitioners experimenting with pulsed frequencies find that they mainly work by treating the root of all illness, from high blood pressure to digestive problems to stress.
There are two types of pulsed EMF devices:
* Bioresonance machines take these fields, invert them and play them back into the body to cancel them out.
* Other types of machines simply direct EM energy to the body to enhance normal cellular activity.
Most well-tested device: the German-made instrument called the MRS 2000, which produces ‘sawtooth’ sine-wave EMF, shown to be most compatible with the human body’s own EMFs. Treatment usually involves one half-hour session a day.
In Russia, Professor Alexander Karasev, at Sochi University discovered a way of stimulating the immune system by using pulsed electromagnetic signals. The device is called: Scenar (Self-controlled energo-neuro-adaptive regulator). The electronics is packaged into a hand-held machine the size of a large TV remote controller. The Karasev device mimics the body’s own natural electromagnetic emissions, detects any abnormalities and automatically adjusts its output to correct the abnormality Neuropeptides are thought to regulate many of the body’s self-healing processes.
Scenar allegedly achieves optimal neuropeptide production by obtaining feedback from the patient’s skin and adapting its electromagnetic output accordingly.
Scenar devices are now widely used in Russian hospitals and are even carried by ambulance crews, who testify to its ability to aid recovery from cardiac arrest, accident trauma and coma. It is also used for drug-free pain relief. www.scenar.info
Developed by ex-NASA scientist Dr William Nelson, the Quantum is one of the first devices to come out of the US. Besides measuring skin resistance the Quantum also takes readings of 16 other measures such as vitamin levels, amino acids, nutrients, food substances, minerals, enzymes, natural sugars, toxins, hormone levels, muscle tone, disease, bacteria, molds, fungi, viruses, and the health and balance of internal organs.
Electrodes on the head, wrist and ankles connect the patient to a standard PC running the Quantum software. The computer then transmits a burst of tiny EM signals into the body, and analyzes the feedback it receives by making comparisons with the normal responses of a body in full health. In this way, problems are supposedly identified before they manifest as an illness.
The reaction of the body to each of these factors is measured by analyzing ‘evoked potentials’, a very brief electrical response at the cellular level. In a single three minute test session, the patient can produce over 65 million bits of information—a huge quantity of data that can only be handled by a computer.
In addition to diagnosing the patient’s problems, the software can also work out the best treatment — usually homoeopathy, flower essences and nutritional remedies. Quantum may also be used as a therapeutic device by directing compensatory EM signals to the body. www.theqxci.com

As every cell has its own frequency, so every body has a composite harmonic frequency as unique as a fingerprint. In health, the frequency pattern is steady and constant, but when dysfunction/disease upsets the harmony of the body, an aberrant resonant frequency is generated.
Researchers from the Neuroscience Research Institute in New York believe that nitric-oxide molecules respond to music and sound, and cause the sense of relaxation and wellbeing. Nitric oxide also helps develop our hearing system and inner-ear blood flow. So as we listen, we relax, and as we relax, our hearing improves, which helps us listen.
Cochlear nerve fibres enter the brainstem and are routed through the thalamus to the auditory cortex. It is along this path that the emotion centres within the limbic system are activated when music is played.
Those have concentrated on therapeutic applications of sound include British naturopath Dr Peter Guy Manners and Robert Monroe, whose pioneering work has created the Monroe Institute. Manners transmits the original, healthy vibration until the sick tissue or organ started resonating with it, so restoring itself to health.
Monroe worked along similar lines of empathetic frequencies, but to modulate brain waves. His work resulted in the HemiSync, an audio system that transmits binaural beats influencing brainwave patterns to improve emotional wellbeing, overcome sleep disorders and reduce stress. www.monroeinstitute.org
Modern Sound Therapies
Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, famous for bringing Transcendental Meditation (TM) to the West, has used the Vedic philosophy of Natural Law vibrations to develop the Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology (MVVT), a technique for improving health.
The practitioner whispers or mutters to himself some specific sounds, determined according to the patient’s problem, and ‘administers’ them by blowing on or touching the affected area of the body. Strange as it sounds, it has been the subject of some scientific research, which has shown that it can be a beneficial therapy. Of 4722 people who, by March 2001, had received the treatment in North America, around a third reported “less than 25 per cent relief”, while 29 per cent reported between 75 per cent and complete relief from their symptoms.
Respiratory problems were the ailments most successfully treated by MVVT, followed by gynecological disorders and cardiovascular problems. The least successfully treated were conditions of the eye, and hearing disorders such as ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
The Tomatis Method
Dr Tomatis, a French ear, nose and throat specialist who died in 2002, developed an audiotherapy system for improving children’s learning abilities and for treating their attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorders (ADHD).
Tomatis’ therapy depends on developing an ability to actively listen—as opposed to our usual passive hearing—to sound waves and frequencies as they are subtly being altered and modulated.
Independent studies show improvement in linguistic skills, psychomotor skills, personal and social skills, and cognitive and auditory skills.
The Tomatis Centre in Toronto, Canada, has studied the results of the therapy in more than 400 children and adolescents with well-documented histories of learning problems. Six months later, 83 per cent of the children were found to have maintained their level of progress, and some had continued to improve.
Tomatis has been successfully used for children who are severely developmentally delayed and also autistic.
Light and color therapy
When light enters the brain, the nerve signals pass not only to the visual cortex, but also to other brain structures like the hypothalamus, pineal, limbic and pituitary systems. This may explain how light affects melatonin as well as causing hormonal and emotional effects.
Sunlight is also good for cardiovascular disease and has been shown to prevent cancer. The major way that light appears to affect the emotions is via color. Most healing treatments with color rest on the notion that all cells and organs of the body have their own vibrational frequencies, and that malfunction shows up as a change in frequency which can be corrected with color.
Studies have shown that painting prison walls a different color can have dramatic effects on the inmates’ behavior. Pink — the shade experienced by a baby in the womb — has now been used fairly widely across the US in police stations and prisons as a means of calming aggressive or agitated inmates such as the drunk and disorderly.
In Canada, blue color schemes have calmed down hyperactive children, lowered blood pressure and reduced stress in general. Scientists have shown using yellow, orange or red in the classroom increased IQ and academic achievement, while brown or black suppressed intellectual functioning.
Remarkably, these color effects appear to be just as effective in people who are colorblind, suggesting that the mechanism is physiological rather than psychological.
Virtual Scanning is a computer-based program that has the patient take a cognitive behavioral test with color. The individual’s response — including the speed with which he or she works — all provides the computer with information to select a treatment protocol. An individually designed color therapy is then delivered to the patient at very low frequencies (1-4 hz).
The patient receives a CD with his or her unique program of color therapy, which involves studying the program on his computer screen for 20 minutes per day for three or four months.
Russian research carried out as part of the Russian federation’s ‘Health of the Nation program demonstrated that the VS had a high degree of accuracy in diagnosis — and was able to accurately diagnosis illnesses from bronchitis to heart disease, hepatitis and diabetes. The study also showed pronounced positive changes in musculoskeletal and central nervous system activity afterward — claiming 93 per cent improvement or recovery.
