I read some things about an early 1900’s energy medicine pioneer, Harold Saxton Burr that I would like to share with you. He was a professor at Yale School of Medicine starting in 1929, published several papers on the nervous system and 93 papers on the role of electricity in human development and disease.
At the time that Burr was doing his research on energy fields, they were very out of fashion. Now, as scientists are getting interested in energy medicine again, his work is showing its real value.
He believed that “fields of life” are the basic blueprints for all life and that these fields reflect mental and physical conditions. Therefore the fields were useful for diagnostic purposes. Obviously he was right because we have MRIs and other devices that use electricity and magnetism to find out what is going on inside our bodies.
In the 1950s he studied trees by hooking them up to recording voltmeters. He found that he could detect their electric fields and that their fields changed in advance of changing weather and other atmospheric phenomena.
The book I am reading mentions two areas where he focused his attention. In 1935 he showed how he could detect when a woman ovulated by measuring the electrical potential between one finger from each hand on a daily basis. Other scientists couldn’t duplicate his experiments, so he kept working until they could. It turned out that other functions in the body also produced changes in electrical potential. Once they figured out how to filter them out, they could reliably detect ovulation. There was even a US patent awarded in 1975 for an electrical circuit based on Burr’s work.
The other area mentioned in this book is in early cancer detection. Burr was convinced that diseases would manifest in the energy field before symptoms showed up in the body. His work was later confirmed by other scientists who found that electrical conductance was significantly higher in tumors than in healthy tissue. In later stages of the disease, the conductance drops as the tissues deteriorate.
His work was started back in the 1930s, more than 70 years ago.
The significance for me is that there is real scientific proof of the existence of the human body’s energy fields, and has been for a long time. The next thing is to scientifically prove that these energy fields can be manipulated through the use of magnets, far-infrared, and various energy practices like Reiki and Pranic Healing. I’m sure I will be posting more from this book, since this information came from chapter 1.
BTW, the book I’m reading is Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis by James L. Oschman.
Totally amazed that this has been known and suppressed.
