Body Electric: Electroceuticals and the Future of Medicine

Life is electric. Our vital signs, in particular, our heart rate and rhythm, and brain activity, are electrical signals that doctors use to diagnose medical problems. But the electric nature of life runs much deeper than this. For centuries, scientists have postulated the existence of an electrical or electromagnetic field that governs all life. The understanding of the Body Electric has the potential to revolutionize medicine. In the future, medical treatments will be based on the prescription of appropriate frequencies (electroceuticals) rather than pharmaceuticals.

Statin Nation

We are told that cholesterol is a major cause of heart disease. Millions of people around the world are taking cholesterol-lowering medications, known as statins, and millions more people are avoiding foods that contain saturated fat and cholesterol. The basic idea is that dietary saturated fat raises cholesterol levels, and these two substances somehow clog-up our arteries, causing a heart attack. This idea is often referred to as the diet-heart hypothesis. However, a number of doctors and researchers have been challenging this hypothesis for decades, and heart disease statistics reveal some alarming facts. Such as:

  • People with high cholesterol tend to live longer
  • People with heart disease are more likely to have low levels of cholesterol
  • Cholesterol-lowering at a population level does not reduce the rate of heart disease

In addition, despite their widespread use, and description as “wonder drugs” statin medications do not extend life expectancy for the majority of people who take them. Cholesterol-lowering is a huge global industry, generating around $20 billion each year. Have the facts about heart disease, cholesterol and cholesterol medications been distorted by pharmaceutical companies and food manufacturers keen to increase their profits? If the focus on cholesterol has been a mistake, then the greatest cost is associated with the lost opportunity to tackle the real causes of heart disease.

Emotional Stress and Your Health

Features HeartMath medical director and author, Dr. Bruce Wilson, a prominent Wisconsin cardiologist. Dr. Wilson’s presentation is especially timely. Emotional Stress and Your Health, a one-hour Teleseminar presented by Wilson and psychologist Dr. Deborah Rozman, takes on added importance in light of a recent Gallup Poll. Representing 95% of the world’s population from 140 countries, the poll shows that positive emotions were a reliable predictor of better health and negative emotions were a reliable predictor of worse health, even when basic needs of food, shelter and safety were met.
