I once met a man who was fighting leukemia. He came from a small northern California town with a population under 600 and an exceptionally high cancer rate, particularly of leukemia, the blood cancer. I learned from him that his town was situated in a ravine over which a power company had installed many high-tension power lines and transformers.
This man told me that, at the time, there was a lot of controversy over this matter. Politicians and medical authorities never acknowledged that the power lines had anything to do with the residents dying from cancer. I knew that it was an invisible source of chronic stress, compromising the core functional systems of this town’s residents. Sadly, no one in authority was willing to investigate the relationship between the presence of high-tension power lines and abnormally high cancer rates.
Speculation from “experts” suggested that many cancer-related deaths may have resulted from exposure to pesticides, chemicals, some common infectious agent, or possibly a virus. No one dared suggest that this sudden onset of deaths could have been the result of the high-tension wires and the strong electromagnetic frequencies they emitted. Although this man believed his leukemia was a direct result of the power lines, he did not survive to make his case.
There is another side to EMFs. During my first 10 years in clinical practice, I was interested in learning about advances in the treatment of cancer, so I visited cancer clinics throughout the United States and Mexico. Although I became familiar with both mainstream and alternative therapies common in the United States, the therapies being used in Mexico caught my attention. Without restrictions imposed upon them by the American “cancer industry,” Mexican clinics are able to evaluate and use new therapies from around the world.
Many Saturdays, I’d donate my time at a clinic in Tijuana. One morning, while I ate breakfast at a restaurant, a tall, thin man in his fifties asked if he could sit with me because there were no empty tables. I welcomed him to join me. As he sat down, I couldn’t help noticing the grapefruit-sized tumor growing on the right side of his neck.
When I asked him about it, he told me the doctor who diagnosed his malignant tumor in the United States said it was too large to be treated surgically and that his cancer was fatal. That motivated him to search for alternative therapies. Instead of repeating the same dire prognosis, the Mexican doctors predicted it would take about 10 days to dissolve the tumor and that whatever was left over would pass through his bowels.
I’ve always been skeptical of promises of miracle cures. I believed that his Mexican doctors had infused the man with false hope. However, knowing the stress this man must have been under—and not wanting to dash his hope—I wished him well.
Two weeks later, I ran into him in the same restaurant and I was amazed to see that the tumor had totally disappeared! He told me that on the tenth day of treatment, he saw what was left of his tumor pass in a bowel movement, just like the doctors had told him it would. I was happy for him—and intrigued. Obviously, the treatment was effective, but I wanted more than anecdotal evidence; I wanted to know how this oddly wonderful event had occurred.
The man was eager to recount his treatment. He told me that the principal therapy his doctors used was surgical implantation of an electrical probe directly into the tumor. An electromagnetic field then pulsed through this probe into the tumor, causing it to dissolve little by little. On the tenth day, the tumor had completely disappeared. I never saw this man again and often wonder if the disappearance of his tumor truly meant that he was in remission.
Fascinated by the use of energy healing in the form of electromagnetic energy to destroy a tumor, I was motivated to learn as much as I could about this type of therapy and, conversely, the ability of electromagnetic fields and radiation to cause cancer. Subsequently, I met numerous people in Mexico who were trying to beat cancer using electromagnetic therapy; some survived and some did not. Most had this in common: they had received a terminal diagnosis and had come to Mexico, where healing innovations were not restricted.
