You may have heard me define ‘Green Medicine’ as the use of natural substances and natural energies in the prevention and treatment of disease, and the best for long-term health maintenance. Here in the Nutrition & Healing newsletter, you often read about natural substances, but less about natural energies. However, this month natural energies will take centre stage. Let’s review the before-and-after health circumstances of three individuals treated at Tahoma Clinic and Advanced Magnetic Research Institute – Washington (AMRI-Wa) with high-gauss magnetic therapy, termed ‘MME’ for magnetic molecular energiser.
For the non-technically inclined, the magnetic field of the human brain is very small, 0.00000001 to 0.000000001 gauss, a refrigerator magnet is 50 gauss, and a medical ‘MRI’ (magnetic resonance imaging machine) operates at 60,070,000 gauss (or a bit more). As the ‘MME’ treatment machine originally was derived from the MRI concept, it operates in the upper end of that frequency range.
The use of magnetic energy to help with healing isn’t new. A few innovative orthopaedic surgeons have used magnets to promote healing in ‘non-healing fractures’ for decades. A few years ago, the media told us that Harvard researchers were finding magnet treatment to be useful in depression. In Seattle, US physicians at Harborview Hospital were researching the same possibility.
The mystery of MME
How does high-gauss magnetic field therapy work? No one knows for certain, but you may remember from chemistry or physics classes that magnetic fields ‘speed up’ electron flow dramatically, and that all biochemical reactions take place by ‘exchange’ of electrons. So one theory is that by greatly speeding up our biochemical reactions, our bodies’ can heal themselves better. And sometimes that healing is dramatic.
But no matter what the reason, high-gauss magnetic field therapy can significantly improve healing. At Tahoma Clinic and AMRI-WA, significant improvement has been seen in approximately two-thirds of nearly 200 people who have been treated and minor improvement in one-sixth. And even when magnet therapy doesn’t work at all – and it hasn’t in the remaining one-sixth of those nearly 200 individuals – there have been no reports of any harmful effects.
Dramatic relief from disabling symptoms
First, let’s review the circumstances of a 15-year-old girl, born with cerebral palsy. Helena (not her real name, of course) can’t walk or speak. Before MME treatment her entire body was rigid, even her legs bent only a little if at all at the knees. Her neck was twisted rigidly to the right, upward, and backward, moving very little from that position. Her left lower jaw was compressed into the left side of her neck and her left shoulder. Her hips were also rotated, and her torso compressed. She choked and snorted frequently. She needed a ‘girdle strap’ to help her sit upright. She frowned a lot, smiled rarely. Despite being 15 years old, she weighed 49 pounds, and hadn’t gained any weight for eight years.
All of Helena’s MME treatment was directed to her brain. By 90 hours of treatment, the neck brace on her wheelchair had been raised twice to accommodate growth, which at that time was measured at one-quarter inch. By 200 hours she no longer needed the ‘girdle strap’, as the muscles of her torso were less rigid and stronger, allowing her to retain her position without the strap.
At the end of treatment (500 hours) Helena could turn her previously ‘stuck-to-the-right’ head a full turn to the left, to the right, and back again. Her left jaw and chin were much less compressed into the left side of her neck and her left shoulder. She could stretch more easily and move more freely and her total body rigidity was less obvious. Her legs bent at the knees, and would sometimes hang over the edge of the treatment bed, instead of stretching out like boards. By that time, she was making frequent giggling and singing noises, which her mother said had been rare before.
Of course Helena was not cured of her cerebral palsy. However, her physical and mental condition was significantly better when she left to return with her mother to Australia. Her mother said it was well worth the distance travelled and time spent to get these dramatic improvements for her daughter.
A before, during, and after video of 15-year-old Helena’s progress can be seen at www.amri-wa.com. One woman who watched it wrote in an email: “I watched the video that tracked the progress of the young woman with cerebral palsy and the changes in her condition were stunning.”
Severe sciatic pain reversed
Next, is the case of a 73-year old woman whose worst problem was severe left ‘sciatic nerve’ pain. In addition to left leg and hip pain, she also had intense lower back cramps and pain which disrupted her sleep. She limped from trying to keep weight off the affected left leg. She also had relatively severe shortness of breath (cause not determined), and constant diarrhoea for the prior two years.
After 101 hours of treatment for the lower back she rated her improvement at ‘75 to 99%’. Her sciatic pain was almost gone (marked down from ‘10 of 10’ to ‘1 of 10.’ She no longer limped. She was sleeping through the night with ‘minimal’-to-‘no’ pain.
She had an additional 59 hours of treatment to her lungs, rating the improvement there at 60%, with much less shortness of breath during walks or deliberate exercise. As a ‘bonus’, despite no treatment to the abdomen, her bowel function was less frequent and more ‘formed’.
Eyesight and hearing restored
Lastly, there is the case of a 69- year-old man who came to Tahoma Clinic principally for treatment of ‘dry’ macular degeneration (diagnosed by his ophthalmologist) in his left eye. He also had been diagnosed – by the same ophthalmologist – with ‘wet’ macular degeneration in the right eye.
(For the non-technically inclined, ‘dry’ macular degeneration is more a process of deterioration of the visual centre, or the ‘macula’, of the retina, with abnormalities of the blood vessels usually visible also. ‘Wet’ macular degeneration is the abnormal growth of blood vessels across the macula, blocking vision directly.)
As is so often the case for individuals suffering from ‘dry’ macular degeneration, his test showed severely low stomach acid production (severe gastric hypochlorhydria). He had multiple visible small haemorrhages of the blood vessels on the front surface of his eyeballs, showing ‘red on white’. A blood spot the size of a match-head appeared under his right eyelid. There was a small amount of pus drainage from both eyes, and his ear canals were swollen almost shut, leaving the appearance of ‘small slits’. His vision with the right eye (‘wet’ macular degeneration) was completely blocked in the centre, but still unblocked on the periphery.
In addition to the ‘regular’ treatment for ‘dry’ macular degeneration, he requested MME treatment focused on the head. After 20 hours, the pus drainage was gone, and his eye colour was more intense, not as ‘foggy’ as before. At 60 hours the small ‘ear slits’ had opened up and perhaps because of that, his hearing was much better. After 200 hours of treatment, the broken blood vessels on the ‘whites of the eyes’ had disappeared on the right, and were almost gone on the left. The ‘match-head’ sized blood spot under his right eyelid was diminished to ‘pinhead’ size.
He was taking the usual oral and intravenous treatment for ‘dry’ macular degeneration, and reported his vision in the left eye – the one with ‘dry’ macular degeneration – had improved. But six months later, he reported that the vision in his right eye – the one with ‘wet’ macular degeneration – had improved to 80% to 90% of original visual capacity!!
Promising new treatment for ‘wet’ macular degeneration?
At Tahoma Clinic, we’ve been successfully treating ‘dry’ macular degeneration in approximately 70% of individuals suffering from it since 1986. (We measure ‘success’ as stopping any further deterioration, or – as is the case in a majority of individuals – significant visual improvement.) This gentleman’s case is the first time in those 26 years that anyone has reported significant improvement in ‘wet’ macular degeneration, making it a particularly noteworthy case.
The only difference between the regular Tahoma Clinic treatment for ‘dry’ macular degeneration and this man’s treatment was the 200 hours application of high-gauss magnetic field energy, the ‘MME’.
Thought you might like to know. While it’s indeed a single case, at this time the only alternatives for ‘wet’ macular degeneration treatment are injections or laser beams shone right into your eyeball at periodic intervals.
Wishing you the best of health,
