The Biofield Hypothesis: Its Biophysical Basis and Role in Medicine

Beverly Rubik This paper provides a scientific foundation for the biofield: the complex, extremely weak electromagnetic field of the organism hypothesized to involve electromagnetic bioinformation for regulating homeodynamics. The biofield is a useful construct consistent with bioelectromagnetics and the physics of nonlinear, dynamical, nonequilibrium living systems. It offers a unifying hypothesis to explain the interaction […]

Measurement of the Human Biofield and Other Energetic Instruments

Beverly Rubik Energy medicine is one of the major categories of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). These therapies typically involve low-level energy field interactions. They include human energy therapies, homeopathy, acupuncture, magnet therapy, bioelectromagnetic therapy, electrodermal therapy, and phototherapy, among others. Many of these modalities challenge the dominant biomedical paradigm because they cannot be explained […]
