Mental Building of Future World and Self

Consciousness

As we grow from infancy to childhood, we learn to sequence experienced events in personal space-time. We learn to name objects, persons and events and also to count events. Thus, we create our own experiential space, timeline and a personal history based on our memory.

Biofield Science and Healing: An Emerging Frontier in Health and Medicine

By: Shamini Jain

Posted: January 22, 2016

Biofield CHI

While the term "biofield" itself is fairly new (coined in 1992 at a National Institutes of Health meeting), the importance and roles of consciousness, energy and information to create and guide health have been central topics of millennia-old 'whole systems' of care that include Chinese, Tibetan, Native American, African, and Ayurvedic medicine. The ongoing use of biofield-based therapies, in terms of both self-practice and practitioner-assisted modalities, has continued to flourish over time, with modern-day evidence to support their benefit for treatment in pain and cancer patients, with minimal adverse effects.

Biofield Science and Healing

By: Mimi Guarneri

Biofield

This month's President's Choice focuses not on a single article but a group of articles presented as varied perspectives on the theme, "Biofield Science and Healing". These articles, published as a special issue of the journal, Global Advances in Health and Medicine (GAHMJ), are truly groundbreaking since they ask us to consider an additional dimension to the molecular/genetic biomedical model that was at the core of most of our healthcare training.

Distant Healing Intention Therapies: An Overview of the Scientific Evidence

By: Dean Radin

Posted: December 16, 2015

DistantHealing

This article provides a broad overview of “distant healing intention” (DHI) therapies, ie, intentional healing modalities claimed to transcend the usual constraints of distance through space or time. We provide a summary of previous reviews and meta-analyses that have explored a diverse array of DHI modalities, outcome measures, and experimental protocols. While some significant experimental effects have been observed, the evidence to date does not yet provide confidence in its clinical efficacy. The purported “nonlocal” nature of DHI raises significant methodological and theoretical challenges. We recommend several avenues for improving future research.

Does consciousness emerge when the right kinds of matter are arranged in the right way with sufficient complexity, or is consciousness a primary quality of existence which precedes matter? Could both be true? KMO speaks with CHI Science Advisor Dr. Neil Theise, MD about mind, matter, biology, longevity and the varities of 'yogic practice'. Neil, who is Professor of Pathology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, also weighs in on the value of established religious, contemplative and shamanic traditions, even the ones which clearly need a little reformation. Neil will be the featured presenter at the East Meets West Medicine Fest, November 20-22 in NYC.

The Use of Healing Touch in Integrative Oncology

By:

Posted: October 22, 2015

HealingTouch Cancer

The use of complementary therapies by patients with cancer has become increasingly prevalent; as a result, oncology nurses find themselves needing to understand those therapies and the evidence-based support for their use. This article describes the integrative use of the biofield therapy healing touch in conjunction with the chemoradiation received by patients with cervical cancer (stages IB1 to IVA) as reported in a 2010 research study. Findings indicated effects on the immune response and depression in healing touch recipients compared to patients receiving relaxation or standard care. Specifically, healing touch recipients demonstrated a minimal decrease in natural killer cell cytotoxicity over the course of treatment, whereas the cytotoxicity of patients receiving relaxation therapy and standard care declined sharply during radiation. Healing touch recipients also showed decreases in depressed mood compared to relaxation therapy and standard care recipients. The findings suggest that appropriate integration of complementary modalities into oncology care can enhance the impact of conventional care by putting patients in the best condition to use their innate healing resources.
