Biofield Science & Healing: History, Terminology, and Concepts

” Biofield science is an emerging field of study that aims to provide a scientific foundation for understanding the complex hemodynamic regulation of living systems. By furthering our scientific knowledge of the biofield, we arrive at a better understanding of the foundations of biology as well as the phenomena that have been described as “energy medicine.” Energy medicine, the application of extremely low-level signals to the body, including energy healer interventions and bio-electromagnetic device-based therapies, is incomprehensible from the dominant biomedical paradigm of “life as chemistry.” The biofield or biological field, a complex organizing energy field engaged in the generation, maintenance, and regulation of biological hemodynamics, is a useful concept that provides the rudiments of a scientific foundation for energy medicine and thereby advances the research and practice of it. An overview of the biofield is presented in this paper, with a focus on the history of the concept, related terminology, key scientific concepts, and the value of the biofield perspective for informing future research. “

Excerpt from the publication: “Science of the Heart: Exploring the Role of the Heart in Human Performance ” by The HeartMath Institute (p.20):

“The heart is the most powerful generator of electromagnetic energy in the human body, producing the largest rhythmic electromagnetic field of any of the body’s organs. The heart’s electrical field is about 60 times greater in amplitude than the electrical activity generated by the brain. This field, measured in the form of an electrocardiogram (ECG), can be detected a number of feet away from the body, in all directions, using SQUID-based magnetometers (Figure). Prompted by our finding that the cardiac field is modulated by different emotional states (described in the previous section), we performed several studies to investigate the possibility that the electromagnetic field generated by the heart may transmit information that can be received by others.”

Systems of the Body:

  • Circulatory System – circulates blood and maintains the temperature
  • Digestive System & Excretory System – absorb nutrients and remove waste
  • Endocrine System – the function of body using hormones
  • Integumentary System, or Exocrine System – exocrine glands, skin, hair, nails, etc.
  • Immune System – defends the body against pathogens or harm
  • Lymphatic System – networks of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph
  • Muscular System – enables movement and muscles
  • Nervous System – processes information from senses via nerves, brain, heart, muscles, and more
  • Renal & Urinary Systems – Kidneys filter blood to produce urine and rid waste
  • Reproductive System – System of producing offspring in the body
  • Respiratory System – brings air into and out of lungs, absorbs oxygen, releases carbon dioxide
  • Skeletal System – bones maintaining the structure of body and organs

Solar & Planetary Terms

Corona Holes 

“Both the fast and slow solar wind can be interrupted by large, fast-moving bursts of plasma called coronal mass ejections, or CMEs. CMEs are caused by release of magnetic energy at the Sun. CMEs are often called “solar storms” or “space storms” in the popular media. They are sometimes, but not always, associated with solar flares, which are another manifestation of magnetic energy release at the Sun. CMEs cause shock waves in the thin plasma of the heliosphere, launching electromagnetic waves and accelerating particles (mostly protons and electrons) to form showers of ionizing radiation that precede the CME.” wiki

Solar Flares

A solar flare is a sudden flash of increased brightness on the Sun, usually observed near its surface and in close proximity to a sunspot group. Powerful flares are often, but not always, accompanied by a coronal mass ejection…

Flares are closely associated with the ejection of plasmas and particles through the Sun’s corona into outer space; flares also copiously emit radio waves. If the ejection is in the direction of the Earth, particles associated with this disturbance can penetrate into the upper atmosphere (the ionosphere) and cause bright auroras, and may even disrupt long range radio communication. It usually takes days for the solar plasma ejecta to reach Earth.[3] Flares also occur on other stars, where the term stellar flare applies. High-energy particles, which may be relativistic, can arrive almost simultaneously with the electromagnetic radiations.- wiki

Schumann Resonance 

NASA: “At any given moment about 2,000 thunderstorms roll over Earth, producing some 50 flashes of lightning every second. Each lightning burst creates electromagnetic waves that begin to circle around Earth captured between Earth’s surface and a boundary about 60 miles up. Some of the waves – if they have just the right wavelength – combine, increasing in strength, to create a repeating atmospheric heartbeat known as Schumann resonance. This resonance provides a useful tool to analyze Earth’s weather, its electric environment, and to even help determine what types of atoms and molecules exist in Earth’s atmosphere.

The waves created by lightning do not look like the up and down waves of the ocean, but they still oscillate with regions of greater energy and lesser energy. These waves remain trapped inside an atmospheric ceiling created by the lower edge of the “ionosphere” – a part of the atmosphere filled with charged particles, which begins about 60 miles up into the sky. In this case, the sweet spot for resonance requires the wave to be as long (or twice, three times as long, etc) as the circumference of Earth. This is an extremely low frequency wave that can be as low as 8 Hertz (Hz) – some one hundred thousand times lower than the lowest frequency radio waves used to send signals to your AM/FM radio. As this wave flows around Earth, it hits itself again at the perfect spot such that the crests and troughs are aligned. Voila, waves acting in resonance with each other to pump up the original signal.

While they’d been predicted in 1952, Schumann resonances were first measured reliably in the early 1960s. Since then, scientists have discovered that variations in the resonances correspond to changes in the seasons, solar activity, activity in Earth’s magnetic environment, in water aerosols in the atmosphere, and other Earth-bound phenomena.”

Other Terms

Quantum entanglement is the physical phenomenon that occurs when a pair or group of particles is generated, interact, or share spatial proximity in a way such that the quantum state of each particle of the pair or group cannot be described independently of the state of the others, even when the particles are separated by a large distance. The topic of quantum entanglement is at the heart of the disparity between classical and quantum physics.

What is Energy?

Kinetic, or Moving Energy:

  • Electrical Energy – the movement of electrical charges
  • Radiant Energy – the electromagnetic energy that moves in waves (visible light, x-rays, radio waves)
  • Sound Energy – a wave that moves out from a source as a result of molecules of an object vibrating
  • Motion/Kinetic Energy – the energy an object possesses because of it’s motion

Potential, or Stored Energy:

  • Gravitational Energy
  • Elastic Energy – when stretch or force is applied, the store energy from the force until released (rubber band)
  • Chemical Energy – stored in the bonds that hold atoms together, when bonds are broken or released, they become Kinetic Energy
  • Nuclear Energy – energy stored in the nucleus of an atom
