Biotechnology is an invaluable tool that has led to the production of innovative non-medical devices. These devices have the potential to be used for helping to identify, prevent, and manage many symptoms and diseases that can lack effective treatment options.
Furthermore, prevention and treatment of nutritional deficiencies have also been made possible with biotechnology.
The recent advancements in the field of biotechnology were made possible after genetic engineering was developed in the 1970s. Since then, the field has come a long way and covers disciplines such as agriculture and medicine.
Biotechnology and Electromagnetic Waves
The human body, like everything in the universe, emits electromagnetic radiation that can now be measured using a simple device. The wavelength of electromagnetic radiation can vary from one organism to another based on their body temperature.
Human beings emit radiation in the infrared region, at an approximate level of 12 microns. This frequency is lower than the frequency of visible light and the radiation emitted is referred to as thermal radiation.
Every object with non-zero temperature emits thermal radiation that can be easily measured by measuring the frequency of infrared wavelengths. The important distinction to make here is that the waves produced by the body are thermal radiation because they are related to the temperature of the body and infrared radiation falls under thermal radiation. If the temperature of the body increases, the radiation would fall under the visible light spectrum and not infrared.
Radiation, when absorbed from outer sources can be quite harmful to the human body resulting in severe deformity, teratogenicity, and even mortality, depending on the amount of radiation exposure. However, that is not the case with the radiation produced by the human body itself.
According to the Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT, Michael Short, the human body is well equipped with dealing with its own electromagnetic waves or radiation. Short also mentions that this radiation is the result of radioactive compounds in the body such as potassium.
Further using the potassium in the body as an example, Professor Short explained the reasoning behind why human bodies contain the same amount of potassium as a ripe banana. Consumption of bananas doesn’t cause radiation poisoning and neither does the potassium in the human body. Furthermore, infrared radiation is non-ionizing which is non-cancerous in nature and cannot result in the growth and development of tumors or neoplasias of any sort.
However, it is not only exposure to radiation that can harm human health but rather also the disturbance of electromagnetic waves being emitted by the human cells that can cause detrimental effects to human health. These waves can get affected by a myriad of factors, such as stress, dietary deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, excessive fatigue, bacteria, microbiome imbalances, pollution, toxicity, and so on.
These aggravations might be small, but they are significant enough to mark the onset of an illness or the symptoms of the illness. This may be a bit confusing to many as medicine has always been believed to be dependent on cellular biology and the physiology of the compartments in the body. However, these recent discoveries suggest that alterations in the electromagnetic waves produced by the body may be behind many illnesses.
Uses of Electromagnetic Waves in Holistic Therapy
The electromagnetic waves emitted from the human body can be used as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool for several conditions. Manipulating the electromagnetic waves in the body and using them as an electromagnetic information delivery medium has been a topic of interest for over three decades.
Findings from multiple experimental procedures conducted over the last two decades on delivery of electro-magnetic information, mediated through an aqueous system have shown some promising results. Recent studies on the matter also show positive results where an aqueous system was used for the facilitation of the delivery system to a neuroblastoma cell line. There was a significant proliferation of the cells, pointing towards the success of the delivery tool in question.
What is "Epigenetics"?
While genes play a central role in our health, our lifestyle and environment have equally important parts to play when it comes to our physical well-being. Epigenetics is the study of human genes and the effect different environmental factors have on them.
Exposure to certain environmental factors can change the way human genes function. These changes are seen in gene expression and result from chromatin conformation changes that can persist through DNA replication. Such changes can be detected using biotechnology, and maybe then used for the early detection of several chronic diseases.
Epigenetics and genetic changes are both related to genes but the major difference between the two is that changes related to epigenetics are reversible. There is no permanent effect on the genes and epigenetic changes are not hereditary, meaning that offspring of the affected person will not suffer from similar disorders unless exposed to the same environmental factor.
Use of Biotechnology in Epigenetics
Electromagnetic waves produced by the body can result in epigenetic changes through DNA replication. This can lead to the development of several pathologies as a consequence of physiological changes in the human body.
Due to its role in several pathological conditions, early detection of these changes to allow timely treatment is of paramount importance. Biotechnology can make the detection of these changes possible, for instance, by using a biotechnology testing device that identifies changes in the electromagnetic waves emitted by a diseased body.
Biotechnology For Treatment In Epigenetics
Detection of the electromagnetic waves as epigenetic factors can be done using biotechnology. In addition to allowing early detection of many conditions, biotechnology can also be used to treat these conditions.
In the past, several electro-acupuncturists have attempted to use electromagnetic waves to treat chronic diseases but it wasn’t very successful until the German doctor and electro-acupuncturist Franz Morrel hypothesized the use of the patient’s own electromagnetic waves to calibrate the electrodes.
Morrel used the patient’s electromagnetic frequencies and then returned them using electrodes, in hopes of using holistic therapy to treat chronic conditions. The treatment was initially called MORA treatment but it has since been renamed.
Morrel's hypothesis was then applied clinically by Dr. Hennecke for the management of intolerances in his patients. This device gained popularity for the management of intolerances as avoidance of intolerances was not required with this treatment option.
These results have since been replicated by several studies conducted in China and Europe with more than favorable results. 83.3 percent of those who participated in these studies claimed to have seen highly satisfactory results with the device. Furthermore, the results of this study pushed the governments of these countries to legalize the use of biotechnology devices for the treatment of intolerances.
Findings from several studies have shown that electromagnetic waves can be a useful tool to diagnose and treat many conditions. A recent study that evaluated the efficacy of this technology showed that most of the conditions that can be managed using this form of therapy are allergy-based illnesses. The study also found that this modality of treatment has high efficacy for managing such allergies.
Can Biotechnology Replace Medicine?
While biotechnology is a helpful adjunctive tool to combat certain conditions, it cannot be a replacement for medicine. Biotechnology should not be viewed as a replacement for traditional medicine. In fact, in many cases, biotechnology provides much-needed assistance to conventional medical practices, especially in conditions that lack effective medications and can be utilized as a means of addressing dietary, vitamin and toxicity imbalances.
The 21st century may be referred to in the history of medicine as the century in which cellular pathology, biochemistry, and biotechnology became the basis of medicine. With biotechnology complementing medicine, remarkable advances in surgery, and increases in life expectancy may be achieved.
A mutual symbiotic relationship between medicine and biotechnology where both benefit off of one another while benefiting the patients could be the best way to evolve healthcare using both modalities.
Biotechnology should be looked at as having the potential to become a vital assistant to current medical practices. Perhaps, in the future, biotechnology may be able to take over and replace medicine, but serious strides need to be made in the field before this can become a reality.
