Electric Fields Kill Tumors

A promising device uses electric fields to destroy cancer cells in the brain.

An Israeli company is conducting human tests for a device that uses weak electric fields to kill cancer cells but has no effect on normal cells. The device is in late-stage clinical trials in the United States and Europe for glioblastoma, a deadly brain cancer. It is also being tested in Europe for its effectiveness against breast cancer. In the lab and in animal testing, treatment with electric fields has killed cancer cells of every type tested.

The electric-field therapy was developed by Yoram Palti, a physiologist at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, in Haifa, who founded the company NovoCure to commercialize the treatment. Palti's electric fields cause dividing cancer cells to explode while having no significant impact on normal tissues. The range of electric fields generated by the device harms only dividing cells. And since normal cells divide at a much slower rate than cancer cells, the electric fields target cancer cells. "An Achilles' heel of cancer cells is that they have to divide," says Herbert Engelhard, chief of neuro-oncology in the department of neurosurgery at the University of Illinois, Chicago.

Even after chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery, about 85 to 90 percent of glioblastoma patients' cancer still progresses, and their survival rates are low, says Engelhard. He has about 10 glioblastoma patients enrolled in the trial, which is testing the unusual treatment in patients for whom all other approaches have failed. Engelhard says that the results are encouraging but that it's too early to comment on the treatment's efficacy.

The electric fields' different effects on normal and dividing cells mostly have to do with geometry. A dividing cell has what Palti calls "an hourglass shape rather than a round shape." The electric field generated by the NovoCure device passes around and through round cells in a uniform fashion. But the narrow neck that pinches in at the center of a dividing cell acts like a lens, concentrating the electric field at this point. This non-uniform electric field wreaks havoc on dividing cells. The electric field tears apart important biological molecules, such as DNA and the structural proteins that pull the chromosomes into place during cell division. Dividing cells simply "disintegrate," says Palti.

Palti, who for years has been studying the effect of electric fields on cancer and normal cells, says that he has verified this mechanism in computer models and experiments in the lab. "The physics are solid," says David Cohen, associate professor of radiology at Harvard Medical School.

Patients in the glioblastoma clinical trial wear the device almost constantly, carrying necessary components in a briefcase. A wire emerging from the briefcase connects to adhesive electrodes covering the skull. Alternating electric fields pass through the scalp, into the skull, and on to the brain. The Food and Drug Administration approved the device for late-stage clinical trials for glioblastoma following promising results from a pilot study in 10 patients, one of whom had a complete recovery...




Mainstream media is throwing the public a few crumbs when reporting advanced healing technology. Please visit healingscience.bioenergeticspectrum.com for a more detailed study of bioresonant healing science developed over a century by great minds like Nikola Tesla, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, Dr. Albert Abrahms, Georges Lakhovsky, and Dr. Ruth Drown to name a few.

Not that I'm complaining, but the Israeli company from the above article have developed a simple (almost stonge age) device that offers not much more than diathermy. Unfortunately, this article from Technology Review makes bioresonant healing science seem troublesome. In fact, truly advanced healing science does not require such cumbersome paraphenalia such as walking around with electrodes in the head attached to a briefcase full of electronics.

Advanced bioresonant devices today might require 15 minutes upto an hour a day of exposure to harmless electric, magnetic, and/or scalar fields while you relax at home. And it's not like a drug where a pusher (aka MD) insists that you have to take it for the rest of your life as "your treatment."

Once the bioresonance properly affects your malady - you're on your way to a cure.

BTW: Actual cures are highly individual; there is no such thing as a panacea and bioresonant healing is not a magic bullet; it is electroherbalism.

  • I has heard recently about an interesting method of development of abilities of the person: the Method of Bronnikov.

    At the first stage train such technics as:

    * Development of sensations of bioenergy in a body,
    * creation of phantom sensations in hands,
    * creation of a power sphere, a spring, a beam,
    * creation of sensations of ease and weight in a body,
    * moving of sensations to a body on a mental command,
    * activization of vital forces in a body,
    * ability for some seconds to restore power,
    * for one-two day to recover at a flu without tablets,
    * ability to raise or lower arterial pressure to itself or other person

    And more many all interesting!

    Lessons with exercises can be got on the DVD disk:

  • Thanks, Alex, for the recommendation. I had a look at http://www.bronnikovmethod.com/method.php. This is definitely a human enhancement site that seems to suggest a form of remote viewing (i.e. seeing with closed eyes) using old school methods. The methods seem to harken back to transcendental meditation and qigong. Well Done.
