An overview of microwave resonance therapy and eeg correlates of microwave resonance relaxation and other consciousness altering techniques
MetadataShow full item record
Microwave Resonance Therapy (MRT) is a novel medical treatment representing a synthesis of the ancient Chinese traditional knowledge in medicine (acupuncture) and recent breakthroughs in biophysics. MRT affects the appropriate acupuncture points by the generation of high-frequency microwaves (52-78 GHz); remarkable clinical results are being achieved. In this paper, the quantum-like macroscopic biophysical bases of MRT are elaborated, offering new insights into the mechanisms of the assembling gap junction hemichannels on the internal microwave (MW) electromagnetic field spatiotemporal maxima at the temporary position of the acupuncture system, and hence insights into the biophysical nature of temporary psychosomatic health or disease. Such a picture also supports an electromagnetic/ionic optical ultra-low-frequency modulated MW quantum holographic neural network-like function of the acupuncture system (similar to complex-valued oscillatory holographic, Hopfield-like neural networks), ...and its essential relation to consciousness, as strongly suggested from biophysical modeling of altered states of consciousness. Finally, our electroencephalographic (EEG) investigations showed more or less characteristic EEG features in many subjects when relaxation was induced by MRT applied to corresponding acupuncture points, as well as by some other activities that may alter consciousness (transcendental meditation, musicogenic states, healer/healee noncontact interaction, drowsiness), demonstrating that EEG may permit rapid and reproducible identification of different states of consciousness, which could be useful in evaluating the effectiveness of consciousness altering techniques and related stress reduction.
