Cross Currents: Electropollution & ElectromedicineCross Currents: Electropollution & Electromedicine
by Robert Becker

Becker describes the emergence of an electromagnetic medicine, which promises to unlock the secrets of healing, and the growth of electromagnetic pollution that poses a clear danger to our health. He uses the model of the body electric to explain the effectiveness of popular alternative healing methods including hypnosis, biofeedback, homeopathy, acupuncture, and psychic healing. All of these therapeutic modalities use aspects of the body’s innate electrical healing systems; all pose a challenge to the views of human life accepted by established mechanistic medicine. These timely ideas have begun to influence the social processes by which change is induced in Western societies. This is fascinating information that is easily read and of considerable importance.

Body ElectricBody Electric
by Robert O Becker, Gary Selden

Becker uses his personal experience to describe the rise and fall of technological medicine; he recalls the transformation of medical discovery into mechanistic dogma and the abandonment of the central rule of science: revision in light of new data. Following his own conviction, Becker began with experiments on regeneration in certain animals (such as the salamander) that can grow perfect replacements for body parts which have been destroyed.
In this book he presents his belief that discoveries about electromagnetism presage a revolution in biology and medicine that may one day enable physicians to control and stimulate healing using only the electromagnetic forces present in the human body.
