Human Biofield Therapy and the Growth of Mouse Lung Carcinoma

Can biofield healing shrink cancer tumors? In this rigorous study, conducted by CHI Scientific Advisor Dr. Lorenzo Cohen and his colleagues at MD Anderson Cancer Center, the scientists examined whether a biofield healer could shrink tumors in mice and whether the biofield therapy also affected key immune markers associated with inflammation and the tumor microenvironment, in a mouse model of cancer.

Reimagining Health—Flourishing

This viewpoint argues that the concept of “flourishing”—a sense of well-being in domains of happiness, mental and physical health, meaning and purpose, character, social relationships, and financial stability—measures health more broadly than existing wellness metrics and should inform clinical and health policy trade-offs and decisions. Patients care not only about physical health and test results but […]

Human EEG Response to the Geomagnetic Field

The human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth’s magnetic fields, according to a team of geoscientists and neurobiologists. Reported in eNeuro, this interdisciplinary study revives a research area in neuroscience that has remained dormant for decades.

Can Humans Sense Magnetic Fields?

Can humans sense magnetic fields? To find out, a team of Caltech scientists built an experimental chamber to apply a controlled magnetic field, then used electroencephalography (EEG) to test humans for brain responses to field changes. In this video, the team explains the experiment’s setup. For even more coverage of this exciting research, check out this synopsis from Caltech’s Maglab.

Brains and Beyond: The Unfolding Vision of Health and Healing

Larry Dossey suggests we are now seeing the birth of new era of medicine, the next great step in healing. This new era acknowledges the intrapersonal effects of thoughts and emotions, but recognizes interpersonal effects as well. In other words, an era in which one’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and intentions can affect not just one’s […]

New Frontiers in Heart Rate Variability and Social Coherence Research

We’ve learned that gratitude is good for the heart – but what is the relationship between gratitude and spirituality? Can spirituality’s effects on well-being be explained by gratitude itself? Here, Drs. Laura Redwine and Mills explore the power of gratitude as the driving force behind the links between spirituality, symptom relief, and self-efficacy.
