Therapeutic Basis of Electromagnetic Resonances and Signal-Modulation
Abstract: The medical application of electromagnetic resonances is a controversial area of knowledge. Numerous unproven statements and some medical quackeries were published and distributed in informal channels among suffering patients. The fake information is hazardous in such severe diseases as cancer. The optimal, high efficacy energy transport by resonances attracts the interest of the experts and the public. The focus of the attention is technical and concentrates on the careful selection and excitation of the target compounds or cells, expecting helpful modifications. The complication is the complexity of the living systems. The targets are interconnected with an extensive network in the tissues where homeostasis, a dynamic equilibrium, regulates and controls changes. The broad range of energy-transfer variants could cause resonant effects, but the necessary criteria for the selection and proper action have numerous limits. The modulated high-frequency carrier may solve a part of the problem. This mixed solution uses the carrier and modulation’s particular properties to solve some of the obstacles of selection and excitation processes. One of the advantages of modulation is its adaptive ability to the living complexity. The modulated signal uses the homeostatic time-fractal pattern (1/f noise). The task involves finding and providing the best available mode to support the healthy state of the body. The body’s reaction to the therapy remains natural; the modulation boosts the body’s ability for the homeostatic regulation to reestablish the healthy state.
