The new science of healing: Energy medicine can remove tumors and improve skin health, studies find http://www.naturalnews.com/050425_skin_cancer_carcinomas_surgery.html#ixzz3g6jIaNrk
(NaturalNews) Mainstream medical removal of skin cancers often involve surgeries that leaves scarring. Other less invasive methods such as laser, microwave, or ultra-sound ablation (tissue removal) create less scarring but promote skin discoloration with limited results.
A group of researchers at the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at Old Dominion University, VA, worked on mice with actual carcinomas, cancers that originate from skin or organ surfaces, using a new electrical application called pulse electric field or PEF.
Another group of researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) decided to experiment with PEF applications on mice to determine the extent of electrical pulse durations and strength that would induce skin rejuvenation for a variety of applications involving skin degeneration, disintegration and damage.
Let's explore the results of each study chronologically and separately.
The study for tumor removal
The Bioelectrics group at Virginia's Old Dominion University labeled their study "Nanosecond Pulsed Electric Field (nsPEF) Ablation as an Alternative or Adjunct to Surgery for Treatment of Cancer", which was published in Surgery: Current Research.
Creating a high energy pulsed electrical field is managed by surrounding a tissue area with opposite polarity electrodes to induce extremely short bursts (nano-second) of high electrical energy (high voltage) and low energy (low current) to avoid heat production. Of course a tumor would be within that tissue area.
In vitro (glass – petri dish) experiments demonstrated that nsPEF could induce both necrosis and apoptosis in tumor cells. Necrosis indicates externally induced destruction cell death, i.e., the cancer cells are "killed". Apoptosis is suicidal cell death that is programmed in all healthy cells to make way for new ones.
However, cancer cells lack this programming. That's how they spread to form tumors. Externally inducing apoptosis paves the way for those cancer cells to finally self destruct. Many natural approaches to cure cancer induce apoptosis, usually by creating an environment hostile to cancer cells, while a few go the necrosis route.
