clinical evidence to suggest particular resonances that are both heard through the ears – and heard by vibration receptors within the body – can be highly beneficial. This explains in part at least why the human love of music is so universal and why animals are so reliant on different sounds, not just to communicate, but to also improve their quality of life.

The human ear in a healthy, young person can typically detect sound at frequencies of between 64 and 23,000 Hz. But we can feel ‘sub-sonic’ sounds at and below 20 Hz, at the very bottom end of the frequency range of some of the best, commercial subwoofer speakers. By comparison, the audible range of a bat is between 7,000 and an astounding 200,000 Hz.

‘Essential’ electromagnetic fields (EMFs)

Now to the nub of what frequency medicine is all about (as distinct from sound healing). Electromagnetism, just like electricity, is fundamental to all living systems. But here’s the thing: it increasingly appears from emerging science and the most viable theories that attempt to explain life (such as those contained in reviews herehere and here), that electromagnetism isn’t just a by-product of the function of living systems. It may actually be the form of energy that makes life happen, by causing the composite molecules, atoms and sub-atomic particles of living systems to move in ways that allow us to describe the organismal matter we see and sense as a living being.

Non-coherent patterns of electromagnetic energy – ones that are affected by, say, interference – may also be drivers of dysfunction and so may be associated with disease or even death. Simply understanding the importance of electromagnetism in living systems should be reason enough to question the ever greater reliance humans have on wireless information and communication systems and the electrosmog they create. These technologies expose us (and other animals, plants and microbes) to novel frequencies as well as amounts (doses) of low frequency EMF radiation that are increasingly way in excess of background thresholds experienced during the course of the evolution of life on Earth. 5G rollout in the absence of safety testing and a transition towards the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) must be regarded as probably the largest uncontrolled experiment ever conducted by humans. One that doesn’t just affect one species, but potentially all of life on the planet.

In a world in which the medical profession has yet to come to accept the intimate relationship between electromagnetism and life, the importance of transitioning away from a molecular and biochemical model to one that includes EMFs and the human biofield may be an idea that’s something of a horse pill to swallow.

So let’s now move on to look at some key pieces of evidence that, once digested, might make the current biochemical and molecular basis of life look (to keep the equine metaphor cantering) blinkered, at the very least.

Why do we think electromagnetism is essential to life?

One could write a book about this subject and, indeed, luminaries such as Robert O Becker MD & Gary SeldenJames Oschman PhD and Donna Eden & David Feinstein PhD have done just that. For those interested, we strongly recommend all three of these books.

But I’d like to pull out 6 facts about bioelectromagnetism that I think provide very persuasive evidence for its intrinsic relationship with life. 

1. Every human (and other living organism) has a measurable biofield that can be influenced by energetic systems.

There is now unequivocal evidence that an energy field (biofield) exists within and outside our bodies. This is logical given the proven existence of bioelectric and bioelectromagnetic forces within the body (see above) – both of which generate electromagnetic fields. The human biofield can be visualised using technologies such as Kirlian electrophotography or its digital successor, gas discharge visualization (GDV) as developed by Dr Konstantin Korotkov following the work of Dr Peter Mandel in Germany. It has long been known that some people have a sense of perception sensitive enough to visualise the biofield (aura).

Korotkov undertook a range of studies, ably summarised in a book chapter by Beverley Rubik PhD of the Institute for Frontier Science (Oakland, California), showing how therapies that induced mind-body changes such as therapeutic touch (Fig. 3), hypnosis and qigong produced changes (greater coherence) in energy emission patterns in the biofield post-intervention.

The human biofield can be readily visualised using the commercially available Bio-Well system which utilises Korotkov’s GDV camera. This can be very useful as a means of detecting changes to the biofield caused by interventions or different emotional or physical states.

Top right: In the case of electromagnetic waves, electric (E) and magnetic fields (B) run perpendicular to each other, and to the direction of the wave vector. The wavelength (lambda, λ) is the distance between wave peaks and the frequency refers to the number of wave peaks transmitted per second (1 Hertz per second = 1 wave peak (cycle) per second).
