In 1986 Discover Magazine informed the world of the work of Dr. Bjorn Nordenstrom, former Chairman of the Nobel Assembly in Sweden. He served in the Nobel Assembly from 1967 through his Chairmanship in 1985. His list of academic appointments, hospital appointments, education and list of more than 122 peer-reviewed papers was very impressive. Discover Magazine described his theory of how an injury or tumor alters the normal flow of the bio-electromagnetic energy that is contained within the closed circuit network of tissue, arteries and finally the veins. “A universe of electrical activity.” There is not a small amount of electrical action, but a universe of electrical activity. These electrical circuits are similar to electrical lines that you see around your home or office."
Voltages build and fluctuate, electrical currents course through arteries and veins and across capillary walls, drawing white blood cells and metabolic compounds in and out of surrounding tissues. This electrical system works to balance the activity of internal organs and in case of injury represents the very foundation of the healing process. The most profound aspect of Nordenstrom’s theory is that disturbances in our electric network are involved in the development of cancer and other diseases. Nordenstrom believed this because he was able to measure changes in voltage at the site of a tumor as it is increasing or decreasing. He began shrinking and destroying cancer tumors utilizing electricity.
1986, World Research Foundation flew Dr. Nordenstrom from Sweden to speak at our 1986 Congress of bio-energetic medicine. I had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Nordenstrom for two weeks. His basic approach to cancer is to insert a small electrode into the cancer tumors as well as in the nearby healthy tissue, thus redirecting the body’s bioelectric energy. He placed the positive electrode in the tumor while placing the negative electrode into the normal surrounding tissue.
Using the concept of opposite charges attract, Nordenstrom induces the tumor-fighting white cells to the tumor site. Being simplistic, think of the Pac-Man game. The white cells go on the offensive in strong numbers. He spent more than 40 years perfecting his theory which he first formulated in the 1940s.
While at our congress in 1986, the news program 20/20 came and interviewed Nordenstrom. At first he was not going to do the interview, due to the fact he had received horrible press in the United States. The Los Angeles Times had called him an alternative medical practitioner because he worked with electricity. This is interesting due to the fact that Dr. Nordenstrom was one of the discoverers of needle biopsy, used everywhere in the world, as well as being one of the top radiologists in medicine. The only publication that gave him a fair review was Discover Magazine.
We did convince Nordenstrom to do the show and it was aired two years later. The show gave a fair account of Nordenstrom’s work and basic theory. The most interesting aspect of the show was the responses of medical doctors from Harvard, Mayo Clinic and other institutions that appeared on air. The responses were similar in that most stated, it is interesting, but they didn’t have time to learn anything new! That was always the reason for the resistance. People are running for the cure, walking for the cure, but there are already viable cures.
When Nordenstrom brought his book, ‘Biologically Closed Electric Circuits’, to the top medical book publishers, the response was that it was too narrow a topic, it wouldn’t get sales so they wouldn’t publish. Then when he self-published he was met with the response from medical specialists, ‘your book is self-published so it has no validity.’
In 1986 after Dr. Nordenstrom had delivered his presentation at our Congress on Bio-Electric Medicine, he was very gracious to sign a copy of his book for our library. With great pomp and ceremony we stood before our electromagnetic section of our library and were prepared to place Dr. Nordenstrom’s book on the shelf. As he placed his book on the shelf he noticed a little book right next to his book. The book by J.H. Rae, M.D. was titled, “The Application of Electricity as a Therapeutic Agent.”
In this book from 1877, Dr. Rae stated the following. “May 12th, 1869, upon examination of our patient we found a tumor about the size of a large hen’s egg, shaped like a bean just below and to the right of the nibble on the right breast…because there had already been two surgeries to remove the tumor by the eminent surgeon H. Marion Sims, the patient would not agree to a third surgery
“I proceeded at once to operate. I used the primary current and placed the positive electrode on the tumor and the negative electrode just two inches away on healthy tissue. The operation was twelve minutes. We commenced operations for several days afterward…On August 1, 1869, upon returning to New York for an examination by the patient’s physician, a group of physicians stated there were no signs of cancer and the patient was pronounced cured.”
I am sharing this for several reasons. I absolutely know for a fact that Dr. Nordenstrom had never seen or read this book. Wisdom is always available to be apprehended by all people. We can get technical and say that Discover Magazine’s pronouncement that Nordenstrom had made the biomedical discovery of the century was technically correct. But he was not the first to shrink cancer tumors using electricity. Dr. Rae had already been using electricity nearly 100 years before Nordenstrom.
Nordenstrom finally went to the People’s Republic of China and gave his patent to the public. Since his first visit to China, more than 2,500 Chinese medical doctors have treated more than 13,000 tumor patients with an effective rate of 75%. All with virtually NO ADVERSE EFFECTS. Nordenstrom has passed away, but he was awarded The International Scientific and Technological Cooperation Award of China. The highest award that a non-citizen could receive. We are electrical, we are energy.
With love, in love and through love.
