Electromagnetic Therapy Treatment for Depression

Depression ‘treatable by electromagnetic therapy’ – The Raw Story

Patients suffering from depression may find relief from treatments using electromagnetic stimulation, offering a possible alternative to mood-altering medications, a new study found.

The research, which was released on Monday, tested 190 patients who had previously failed to respond to antidepressant drugs.

Patients were given at least three weeks of magnetic stimulation. Scientists found that the treatment led to remissions for 14 percent of them, and that most remained in remission for several months.

The treatment, known as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) offers future hope of a non-drug treatment for depression sufferers, although researchers said additional studies are needed.

“This study should help settle the debate about whether rTMS works for depression,” said Mark George of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, who led the research team.

“We can now follow up clues suggesting ways to improve its effectiveness, and hopefully further develop a potential new class of stimulation treatments for other brain disorders.”

Electropollution can cause diabetes

11 06 2010

(NaturalNews) Most people are familiar with type-1 diabetes and type-2 diabetes, but did you know researchers have discovered a third type of diabetes? Type-3 diabetes, as they are calling it, affects people who are extra sensitive to electrical devices that emit “dirty” electricity.

Type-3 diabetics actually experience spikes in blood sugar and an increased heart rate when exposed to electrical pollution (“electropollution”) from things like computers, televisions, cordless and mobile phones, and even compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Dr. Magda Havas, a PhD from Trent University in Canada, recently published the results of a study she conducted on the relationship between electromagnetic fields and diabetes in Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine. In it, she explains how she and her team came to discover this about why electropollution is so dangerous for many people.

Austin Event Tonight: Energetic Effects on Consciousness

23 09 2008

Energetic Effects on Consciousness: Invisible Pollution or Panacea?
Presented by James B. Beal, B.S. (M.E.)
Tuesday, September 23rd, 6:30 – 8:30 P.M.
Austin History Center, 810 Guadalupe, Austin, TX 78701

Potential causes, symptoms, therapies, cures, precautions, and recent research associated with hazardous EMF’s will be discussed.  The wide-ranging healing stimulation effects of EMF’s have been utilized in many other countries since 1849; why, then, have EMF studies been suppressed in the US since the 1920s?  Research documents and references on this topic will be available.

Need we be concerned about the biological effects of electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) from the proximity to power lines?  Should we be concerned about the new wireless technologies in and around near our homes, such as cell phones, wireless networks, cell towers, antennas, and portable home phones? Wireless networks in home, schools, offices, libraries and public places around the globe are starting to be dismantled due to cognitive, neurological and other symptoms adults and children are experiencing as a result of long tern use. See The BioInitiative Report  (www.bioinitiative.org).

A Point To Ponder:  All the good comes with some bad.  Think about it! We pay a price for everything in life.  And you pay a higher price if you don’t know what price you are paying.  In the power and communication areas, the corporations who are bringing you all the wireless and power novelties, claim to occupy the “high ground of new tech.”  They claim they are bringing us better “service.”

“They” are interested in supplying more power and more improved communication systems as rapidly as possible, for the benefit of mankind (and their pocketbooks).  If anybody says “Let’s go slow here, and look at long-term effects”, it looks like the imposition of a narrow judgment view on a society impatient to enjoy, immediately, the miracles of modern electronic technology.  The “quick, unthinking, habituated response” is “Shoot the messenger!”  Massive denial of any hazardous biological effects of EMF’s, even though known, as with controlled frequencies and intensities of many types, have been successfully used i n healing therapies in other countries since 1849!  Pioneering electromagnetic researcher, Dr. Robert Becker, suggests there is both a “peril and a promise” to emerging electromagnetic technology.  Where does the truth lie?

What happens when biologically effective frequencies and intensities are “accidentally” in our environment long-term?   What do we know? What does the research prove, from other countries?  Are we aware or unaware of a pollution that is invisible?  Are these invisible energies affecting us? Are environmentally sensitive people being the “human canaries for the rest of us? Think about it!

About James Beal

James B. Beal, B.S. (M.E.), EMF Interface Consultant and retired NASA engineer, will present a 45-year overview of research findings about the healing aspects and the hazards of electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) and effects on health and consciousness. This will be about the EMF long-term biological effects on (as well as emitted by) living creatures (including humans ), when exposed to the strong artificial fields produced by our power and wireless technologies.

After 35 years work at Boeing, NASA, and Martin Marietta: External Tank Facility, New Orleans, Beal studied the effects of natural and artificial electromagnetic fields (EMF’s) on living systems. Beal shares a patent on electrostatic cooling, a form of weld for the Space Shuttle External Tank, with Michael Badinger, still of Louisiana.  Beal serves on Advisory Boards of The Monroe Institute, which studies hemi-sync energetic tapes and The Gladys T. McGarey  Wholistic Medical Foundation, and the INACS Board of Austin, Texas.  He assisted astronaut Edgar Mitchell in the formation of The Institute of Noetic Sciences (1972-73).  Chapters on consciousness and field effects appear in seven books.  Mr. Beal has obtained numerous grants for travel and lectures internationally. He now does private consulting for individuals at home, business and property assessments for health-stressful EMF Effects.
