The past few years have seen extensive interest in treatment of various diseases with adult stem cells (ASC). This paper will not discuss umbilical cord or adipose tissue derived stem cells, but rather peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC). We will demonstrate that one of the natural roles of stem cells is to participate in tissue repair both due to injury or degenerative disease. We will review the mechanisms involved with stem cell release and activation and present two new natural triggers for this release and possible differentiation...

The mechanism of why electro-acupuncture (EA) at PC6 improves the heart function was investigated by studying how the L-type cardiac voltage-dependent calcium channel in myocardial ischemia (MI) is regulated. Cava,., Cavo and Cava2-61 are main component proteins of L-type calcium channel; CaM and Calmodulin kinase II (CaMKII) are Ca2+ channel associated proteins. In this experiment, MI was induced by injection of isoproterenol (ISO) in rats and electrocardiograms (ECGs) were recorded before and after every injection, and protein expressions of Cava,c, Cavp, Cava2_61, CaM and CaMKII were higher [The protein expression increased 43...

OBJECTIVE: It was postulated in our previous publications that the meridian channels as conceived in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are various standing waves arising from harmonic rhythmic sound frequencies originating from the human heart beat. BIOCERAMIC is an artificial material able to produce a weak force field causing different biophysical and systemic health benefits, with the key characteristics of hydrogen bonds weakening and microcirculation enhancement. Since discovering that the effects of a BIOCERAMIC field can be transmitted via sound waves propagation, we then also developed a BIOCERAMIC Resonance device to produce weak force field throughout the body, and achieve resonance with the body's meridian channels to reinforce microcirculation...

Negative pressure of cupping induces skin deformation such as ecchymosis and purpura in a circular shape. Thus, there is a desire to treat skin before depigmentation and scarring occurs. Therefore, we introduce laser therapy, a widely used technique treat pigmentation in dermatology. Various parameters of laser therapy can be applied, so to determine the optimal exposure parameters that do not damage the surrounding tissues, the subjects were divided into four groups: a non-stimulation group and three laser groups (4 J/cm2 group, 6 J/cm2 group, and 8 J/cm2 group)...

During the past 10 years, the author had found that the optimal dose of Vitamin D3 400 I.U. has safe & effective anticancer effects, while commonly used 2000-5000 I.U. of Vit. D3 often creates a 2-3 time increase in cancer markers. We examined the concentration of Taurine in normal internal organs and in cancer using Bi-Digital O-Ring Test. We found that Taurine levels in normal tissue are 4-6ng. But, the amount of Taurine of average normal value of 5.0-5.25ng was strikingly reduced to 0.0025-0.0028ng in this study of several examples in adenocarcinomas of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, colon, prostate, and lung, as well as breast cancer...

Skin is the biggest and most important organ of us. It has a large surface area and it is easily accessible. While we touch skin, piezoelectric stimulation starts, fundamental property of biological tissues, pressure electrification. And after this stimulation, ferroelectric and pyroelectric effects occur. While we insert the acupuncture needle into skin, we have created a conscious trauma and damage. After this, inflammatory phase, proliferation and tissue formation phase and tissue remodeling phase start...

Lyme disease is found in a majority of people we tested. Once Borrelia Burgdorferi (B.B.) spirochete enters human body, it not only causes pain by infecting joints, but it also often enters the brain and the heart. Infection of brain can be quickly detected from the pupil and infection of the heart by ECGs non-invasively. By evaluating recorded ECGs of atrial fibrillation (AF), using U.S. patented non-invasive highly sensitive electromagnetic field (EMF) resonance phenomenon between 2 identical molecules or between a molecule and its antibody, we examined 25 different AF patients' ECGs and found the majority of them suffer from various degrees of B...
