What is the Swiss Tennis Team's Secret Weapon?
Of course, top tennis players are gifted athletes, but could some of them have a secret weapon that gives an edge on the tennis court? You might be surprised to know that the Swiss Tennis Team uses of gadget called a BEMER. This is a portable pulsed magnetic field device which speeds healing of muscle and tendons after tough tennis matches. According to the BEMER web site, the Swiss Tennis Team and many other athletes have been using a portable pulsed magnetic therapy unit regularly.(3)
Horse Racing and Pulsed Magnetic Wave Devices
Pulsed magnetic therapy for sports injuries is nothing new, and has been used in horse racing for many years. There is big money in Horse Racing, and trainers give their horses pulsed magnetic therapy to gain an edge on the track. Benefits include faster recovery time from sports injuries, improved blood flow, improved nerve regeneration, and faster wound and fracture healing.(4)(5)(6)(7)(9)(10)

Dan Clark MD and the BioEnergetic Medicine Conference
I learned about Roger Federer and the Swiss Tennis Team using the BEMER at Dan Clark’s BioEnergetic Medicine Conference in Orlando, September 2007.(15)
Robert O Becker, M.D., The Body Electric
Electromagnetic radiation as a therapeutic device wasn’t accepted by mainstream medicine until 1985 when Robert O Becker, M.D. discovered that non-united bone fractures heal with pulsed EMF electrical stimulation. This is now standard practice in all hospitals. Becker’s books, The Body Electric in 1985, and Cross Currents in 1990, broke new ground, and the 3 decades of research since then have shown pulsed EMF to be effective for non-united bone fractures, relief of musculo-skeletal pain, migraine headaches, low back pain, depression, wound healing, improvement in blood flow and nerve regeneration, to mention a few. Becker discovered that weak electric currents recruit stem cells which differentiate into the body part requiring healing. Becker also discovered a second nervous system in the body which corresponds to the Chinese acupuncture meridians. (11)(12)(13)(14) There are numerous therapeutic uses of pulsed EMF published in the medical literature.(69)(70)(71)(72)(73)(74)(75)
Electromagnetic Waves are the Basis of the Chemical Bond
Although modern science began with Isaac Newton’s laws of mechanics in 1687, Michael Faraday’s principles of electromagnetic induction were discovered only recently in 1831.(16)(18)

Since then, Albert Einstein and quantum mechanics further changed our understanding of matter, energy, and the universe.(19)(20)(21)(22) Paradoxically, the electron and all electromagnetic energy are both particle and wave, and the electron’s wave function derived from quantum mechanics is the basis of the chemical bond, first described by Linus Pauling.(23) The chemical bond is now understood as sharing electrons (electromagnetic energy wave forms) between two atoms or molecules.
Electro-Magnetic Energy Use in Diagnosis
We have been using electromagnetic energy for medical diagnosis since the beginning of modern medicine. For example, the Electrocardiogram (EKG) and Electroencephalogram (EEG) both record electrical activity from body parts. The CAT scanner makes an image by passing electromagnetic radiation through a body part. The MRI scanner makes an image by pulsing electromagnetic energy through the body and then “listening” for the emitted energy signal. The mass spectrograph, a primitive form of MRI machine is used daily in the hospital lab for routine blood testing.
Electromagnetic Energy is Essential for Life
When we bask in the sun, and our skin makes vitamin D from sun light, this is electromagnetic radiation driving a bio-chemical reaction in our body. Photosynthesis is another example of absorption of electromagnetic radiation to form carbon bonds in plants. As a matter of fact, all biochemistry can be explained as electrical interactions between outer shell electrons. Electromagnetic energy is a basic part of the biochemistry of life.
BEMER and ONDAMED
One elementary problem with pulsed electro magnetic therapy as a treatment is: how do we determine the exact pulse frequency to be used? The BEMER device steps through a series of pre-set frequencies. Another device called the Ondamed uses a more sophisticated method of diagnosis before applying the treatment.(24) With the Ondamed device, the operator scans though a frequency range while palpating the radial pulse. When the pulse becomes palpably stronger, this indicates a vascular autonomic response (VAS), and that’s the frequency used for treatment.(25) Our understanding of pulsed magnetic field treatment is still in its infancy, and the next few decades will see more research and refinement of technique, and greater acceptance into mainstream medicine.
Dr. Shari Lieberman presented three cases of plantar fasciitis treated with the Ondamed device, all with prompt recovery. Dr. Lieberman is currently compiling additional Ondamed cases of trigeminal neuralgia, reflex sympathetic dystrophy, bell’s palsy, and others.(26)(27)
Dr. Shari Lieberman also presented Poly-MVA case studies. Poly MVA, available since 1995, is a non-toxic nutritional supplement containing palladium, which has been used for nutritional support for cancer patients. Dr. Lieberman presented cases of clinical improvement with Poly MVA. These cases included multiple myeloma, lung cancer, and prostate cancer. (28)(29)(30)(31)(32)(33)(34)
Merrill Garnett, the inventor of Poly MVA, is a brilliant researcher and author of the book, First Pulse, which describes the electrical pulsations inside every cell, and how Poly MVA manipulates these electrical pulsations to cause the death of cancer cells without injuring normal cells. Garnett’s life-long search for an anti-cancer agent culminated in his discovery of Poly MVA. One hundred years from now, I predict that the history of science will place Merrill Garnett in the same company with Faraday, Einstein, and Becker.(35)(36)(37)(38)

Patricia Kane PhD
Patricia and Ed Kane of the Haverford Wellness Center, Havertown, PA presented their treatment protocol and case studies. They use IV phospholipid therapy for ALS, Stroke, Environmental illness, Hypercoagulation, Parkinson's, Cardiovascular Disease, Hepatitis C and Autism. This is the original IV phospholipid formulation from Natterman in Germany, and they showed case photos before and after treatment which were simply amazing, and by far the most impressive at the meeting.(39)(40)(41)(42)(43)
Ed Kane, cell membrane phospholipid bilayers, the key to health.
Above diagram shows the bi-layer nature of the cell membrane.
Phospholipids are long chain carbon molecules which form microscopic tuning forks which can oscillate and resonate at set electromagnetic frequencies. (see diagram below)
Above image: Schematic showing the phospholipid structure with two long chain fatty acids joined at the "head" by phosphate group. Note resemblance with a tuning fork. The CIS double bond is the "kink" in one of the long chains. This is not stationary, as the molecular structure wobbles back and forth allowing it to absorb energy and synchronize its vibrations with other "tuning forks" in the membrane.
Above diagram is a magnified version of membrane bi-layer showing molecular structure of the phospholipid "tuning fork" composed of two long carbon chains joined at the top. Note one chain has a CIS double bond which results in a 37 degree bend which vibrates back and forth.
These phospholipid bilayers are not only located at the outer cell membrane, they are also present as folded layers throughout the cell cytoplasm providing surfaces for all biochemical reactions to take place. Energy absorption by these bilayers speeds up biochemical reactions at the membrane surfaces.

Sangeeta Pati, M.D.
Sangeeta Pati, M.D. discussed bio-identical hormones, reviewing the medical literature which demonstrates that bio-identical hormones are safe and do not increase risk of breast cancer as shown in the French Cohort study.(47) In addition, bio-identical hormones are protective and reduce risk of heart disease as shown in a recent NEJM coronary calcium score study.(48) On the other hand, the synthetic progestins are the bad guys which should be avoided. Don’t miss Dr. Sangeeta Pati explaining bio-identical hormone therapy in a video interview on the Wellness Hour viewable on the internet.(44)(45)(46)
A diagnosis of adrenal fatigue can be made with salivary cortisol testing, and treatment with cortisol or phosphatidyl serine. Chronic daily stress eventually causes exhaustion, and this means reduced adrenal production of cortisol, which is the definition of adrenal fatigue. I had a recent phone conversation with an old time friend who is also an endocrinologist. She informed me that adrenal fatigue simply doesn’t exist as a real medical diagnosis. Mainstream medicine doesn’t believe in it. The adrenal gland is normal, functioning at 100%, or nonfunctional (Addison’s’ Disease), with nothing in between. For these doubting mainstream docs, the medical literature shows that adrenal fatigue is indeed caused by cortisol deficiency which can be measured with salivary testing, and the condition can be cured with bio-identical natural cortisol. (49)(50)(51)(52)(53)(54)(55)(56)(57)(58)(59)(60)
A more complete treatment involving lifestyle modification and nutritional supplements to relieve addrenal fatigue is described in the book, Adrenal Fatigue by Jame C. Wilson.(61) The book, The Safe Use of Cortisol by McJefferies is also a useful reference on low dose cortisol treatment for adrenal fatigue.(62)
Russell Jaffe MD
Russell Jaffe MD discussed how vitamin and nutritional deficiencies are prevalent and cause chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.(62)(63) Russell Jaffe is the founder of the Perque Company, a unique vitamin and nutritional supplement company which is miles ahead of the competition. At our office, we use exclusively the Perque Vitamin C because it is 100% L-ascorbate, fully buffered with no fillers, and is the superior product. Dr. Jaffe (Russ) has solved a number of nutritional supplement problems. His choline citrate solves the magnesium uptake block issue. His glucosamine joint product provides more rapid pain relief, his bioflavonoids provide more pain relief, and a new fiber which is better tolerated. Russ also has a new adrenal stress product containing Relora which was unveiled at the meeting, and the samples I tried were incredible. Russ has continued to improve the Perque line everytime and visit their booth. For example, Strontium is now included in the Bone Guard supplement for osteoporosis prevention. Always the showman, Dr. Jaffe made the closing comments at the meeting describing how Louis Pasteur triumphed over his rival Bechamp with superior marketing, rather than with superior technology.(64)(65)

Sir Isaac Newton, 1643 – 1727, was an English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian. His Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, published in 1687, is said to be the greatest single work in the history of science. In this work, Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, laying the groundwork for classical mechanics, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries and is the basis for modern engineering.
The portrait of Newton is a copy of one printed in 1689 by Sir Godfrey Kneller, which is owned by the 10th Earl of Portsmouth. This copy was painted by Barrington Bramley and donated to the Institute in 1992 by the Director of the Institute, Sir Michael Atiyah, who unveiled it at the opening in July of that year. It shows Newton at the height of his scientific acumen, before he went to London to take charge of the Mint.
Michael Faraday on Wikipedia. Faraday established that magnetism could affect light. He discovered the relationship between magnetism and electricity. His inventions formed the foundation of electric motor technology, and he initiated the widespread use of electricial and magnetic devices.
Light-Particle/Wave duality, "early in the debate about whether light was composed of particles or waves, a wave-particle dual nature soon was found to be characteristic of electrons as well. The evidence for the description of light as waves was well established at the turn of the century when the photoelectric effect introduced firm evidence of a particle nature as well. On the other hand, the particle properties of electrons was well documented when the DeBroglie hypothesis and the subsequent experiments by Davisson and Germer established the wave nature of the electron."

Book Review of First Pulse by Brian Thomas Carroll."Dr. Garnett's research work, grounded in the pragmatics of trial and error scientific and artistic experimentation, led to a treatment called the palladium complex (LAPd), based on this new electrogenetic understanding of cancer, restoring the cells energy instead of killing the cancerous cells off, as in traditional chemotherapy treatment. This unique approach to cancer treatment was the result of an investigation into corrosion engineering and the electrical properties of metals. in the end, Dr. Garnett's hard work and vision have produced a new model for cancer research, and the LAPd complex is in the testing stage, after having restored mice from full-blown cancer to full health."
