  • Using functional MRI, Cho and colleagues discovered that stimulation of vision related points on the lateral aspect of the right foot activated neurons in the visual cortex. These cortical areas correspond to areas that are activated during vision. This was an important confirmation that acupuncture meridians interact with neurons in the brain. More recent work using ultrasound stimulation of the acupuncture points on the feet has shown that the activation of brain sites is far too rapid to be explained by nerve conduction. Some other mechanism, faster than nerve conduction, is conveying the stimulus from the feet to the brain. See the presentation by Jones at this conference.

    • 3. What is the Biofield? 1) a fluxive, massless medium with the distinctive property of beingbioeffective. In conventionally understood physics, field means: "a region of space characterized by a physical property, such as gravitational orelectromagnetic force or fluid pressure", while energy means: "the capacity of a system to do work". (Definitions of properties are from The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Third Edition, 1992) 2) The operative mechanism in hands-on healing modalities. Note: The terms "Energy", "Energy Field", and "Energy Body" which are commonly used to describe the field, are an unfortunate and unclear mixture of meanings. This mixing of terms has long caused confusion and brought derision from the other scientific disciplines. Biofield Research Institute

Source Institute for Frontier Science, Oakland, CA, and Union Institute and University, Cincinnati, OH, USA.• This paper provides a scientific foundation for the biofield: the complex, extremely weak electromagnetic field of the organism hypothesized to involve electromagnetic bioinformation for regulating homeodynamics. The biofield is a useful construct consistent with bioelectromagnetics and the physics of nonlinear, dynamical, nonequilibrium living systems. It offers a unifying hypothesis to explain the interaction of objects or fields with the organism, and is especially useful toward understanding the scientific basis of energy medicine, including acupuncture, biofield therapies, bioelectromagnetic therapies, and homeopathy. The rapid signal propagation of electromagnetic fields comprising the biofield as well as its holistic properties may account for the rapid, holistic effects of certain alternative and complementary medical interventions.

Forbes MA, Rust R, Becker GJ. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this preliminary investigation was to determine if surface electromyography (EMG) equipment is capable of detecting electrical signals that can be used as a measure in biofield research. DESIGN: These preliminary data were collected from one subject (a member of the research team), using the subject as his own control. Resting state data are compared to data collected during a specific Healing Touch (HT) intervention. MEASURES: Electrodes were attached to the back of the subject at eight acupoints. The Model 544 EMG System (amplifier and electrode assembly) (Therapeutics Unlimited, Inc. Iowa City, IA) was used to acquire data. The raw data weredivided into discrete time segments and converted from the time domain into the frequency domain by performing a fast Fourier transform. Integer frequency averaging was conducted to allow for ease of interpretation. Using the voltages at each frequency, the signal strength was calculated in decibels. RESULTS:A 0-65 Hz frequency spectrum was obtained from the surface EMG apparatus. An averaged baseline, "resting state" frequency spectrum was definable for the subject that was stable with time for signal strengths >0 dB. When the HT practitioner attuned with the subject, higher frequency components of the spectrum increased in amplitude, peaked, then decreased throughout the intervention. CONCLUSIONS: The conclusions drawn from these results is that the surface EMG apparatus has potential as a measurement device for biofield research. Further experimentation using this device for biofield measurement is encouraged.

Movaffaghi Z, Farsi M.• Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is increasingly popular in biomedical health care. One area of alternative medicine, biofield therapies, claims to manipulate individuals energy field in order to enhance healing and wellbeing. This article reviews some recent studies addressing the characterization of endogenous energy fields and the way they affect the physiologic processes.

Anderson JG, Taylor AG.• Though there have been advances over the last 30 years in the therapeutic approaches to cardiovascular disease (CVD), heart disease and stroke remain the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. Many medical therapies for CVD are associated with a number of side effects, often leading patients to seek non-pharmacological treatments to complement standard care. Referred to as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), these therapies consist of a heterogeneous group of modalities used in addition to conventional health care. Biofield therapies exist within this CAM domain and involve the direction of healing energy to facilitate general health and well-being by modifying the energy field. What follows is a brief overview of three biofield therapies developed or used within the field of nursing (Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, and Healing Touch), surveying the use of these interventions for individuals with CVD, and outcomes that may impact CVD risk factors and health-related quality of life.

Anderson JG, Taylor AG.• The public and healthcare professionals have become increasingly aware and accepting of the benefit in physical, psychological, social, and spiritual support for patients with cancer. Patients with cancer often seek nonpharmacologic interventions to complement conventional care and decrease the pain associated with cancer and its treatment. Most often referred to as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), these supportive therapies consist of a heterogeneous group of modalities used as adjuncts to allopathic health care. Biofield therapies are CAM modalities that involve the direction of healing energy through the hands to facilitate well-being by modifying the energy field of the body. This critical review of studies of biofield therapies emphasizes research using these modalities to decrease pain in patients with cancer. Although the therapies have demonstrated clinical efficacy, additional research is warranted. Oncology nurses should familiarize themselves with biofield therapies so they can offer informed recommendations to patients with cancer experiencing pain.

Department of Family Medicine, Odana Atrium Family Medicine Clinic, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health WI 53719, USA.• Energy medicine modalities, also known as biofield therapies, are perhaps the most mysterious and controversial complementary alternative medicine therapies. Although many of these approaches have existed for millennia, scientific investigation of these techniques is in its early stages; much remains to be learned about mechanisms of action and efficacy. These techniques are increasingly used in clinical and hospital settings and can be incorporated into an integrative primary care practice. This article describes several energy medicine and biofield therapies and outlines key elements they hold in common. Several specific approaches are described. Research findings related to the efficacy of energy medicine are summarized, and proposed mechanisms of action and safety issues are discussed.

Pierce B.Biofield therapies form a subcategory of the domain ofenergy therapies, as defined by the National Center forComplementary and Alternative Medicine. Specificbiofield therapies addressed in this article includeTherapeutic Touch, Healing Touch, Polarity Therapy,Reiki, and Qigong. This article will identify core conceptsin biofield therapies, review controlled trials of the use ofbiofield therapies with patients with cancer, describe theprocess of biofield therapies implementation in onecancer center, and suggest research to benefit not onlypatients with cancer but also family members andoncology professionals.
