A new program began in 2003 designed to research bioenergy, health and electrotherapy.
October, 2011: The NURA Life Sciences company is webcasting this 15 minute narrated slideshow on "Bioelectric Devices that Work and Why" by Dr. Tom Valone (PowerPoint slideshow, 20 Mb). It is also online as "BioelectricDevices-DrValone" without narration as a PDF file (1.5 Mb).
March, 2011: At the Fourth Conference on Future Energy, IRI featured a ground-breaking plenary lecture by graduate student Scott Kelsey from Missouri State University, who is studying under the famous doctor Norm Shealy, MD, PhD. Mr. Kelsey's presentation on an electromagnetic means for lengthening DNA telomeres (PDF) has Nobel Prize winning connections since Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn received one for her work in proving that telomere length is associated with lifespan.
Throughout the early 1900’s, thousands of electrical devices were invented and used by doctors to effectively ameliorate a variety of illness, disease, infection, and malady. As far back as September 6, 1932, Dr. Gustave Kolisher announced to the American Congress of Physical Therapy that "Tesla's high-frequency electrical currents are bringing about highly beneficial results in dealing with cancer, surpassing anything that could be accomplished with ordinary surgery." Though a few devices and textbooks survive to this day, most have been wiped out by the special interests of the A.M.A. and the F.D.A. Today, it is ironic that cancer, AIDS, and a host of other diseases remain in the limbo of research almost indefinitely with only incremental improvements in care revealed by all of the medical institutions. On the other hand, there is a resurgence in the science of bioelectromagnetics (BEMs), which is the study of the effect of electromagnetic fields on biological systems. A 3-page white-paper (pdf) on "Chronic Fatigue and Electromedicine" by Dr. Thomas Valone prepared for the Rejuvenetics company, summarizes the effects leading to depleted cellular energy and evidence for antidotal effects of microcurrent, pulsed electromagnetic fields. A new, revised edition 120-page book, Bioelectromagnetic Healing: A Rationale for Its Use is the first book to provide a comprehensive, scientific explanation for the reasons why high voltage electrotherapy devices work, including a summary of the new findings of biophotons.
“This is a great [book] that you published…Hopefully the next generation of doctors will be using BEM medicine!” - Beverly Rubik, PhD - Institute for Frontier Sciences
The first 20 pages of Bioelectromagnetic Healing are also online in pdf form.
A published BEMs study summarizing the book is available online.
IRI has also a comprehensive "Bibliography of Bioelectomagnetics" available for researchers.
The Premier Junior, pictured to the right, is IRI's experimental electromedicine machine, developed by biophysicist Thomas Valone, Ph.D., P.E. based on the Violet Ray device, which is grandfathered by the FDA. It energizes the body in a very short exposure lasting less than 1 minute. One can use the Wand to receive electrons which preliminary studies show will fight free radicals. Invigorating and disinfecting, many people use it everyday to increase their resistance and relieve pain.* More information is contained in the book, Bioelectromagnetic Healing: A Rationale for Its Use, along with an explanation of how such high voltage electrotherapy devices work with the human tissue in beneficial ways.
IRI has also developed a Dental Vapor Ionizer based on the principle of electroprecipitation. It utilizes high voltage static electrical fields to move toxic mercury vapor from amalgam fillings to a positively charged collector plate. The plate is a washable rubber mat which is also available configured inside a framed picture if desired. When operating, tests with a mercury vapor meter show a lower concentration in the dental operatory than in the waiting room.

Our Bioenergy Department Director, Dr. Jacqueline Panting N.D., has developed a Biocompatible Electrolyte Support Salt which is a mix of biocompatible electrolyte salts and trace minerals in a shaker form, designed to have the proper ratio matching the human body's internal mineral balance in the biological terrain. It is such an essential mix that we predict the product consumption will grow into commercial applications with demand for larger containers that create more of a food necessity out of it. It also fulfills the US food industry's need for adding salt into prepared food in a much more healthy manner.
A new book is just out by Thomas Valone entitled, Modern Meditation: Science and Shortcuts which is based on meditation training workshops that have been led by Dr. Valone for various audiences, including the American Cancer Society, the Food and Agriculture Office of the UN, and the US Patent Office. The latest Modern Meditation workshop in the Workplace was led at the Science and Consciousness Conference on March 28-April 2, 2008 in Santa Fe, NM.

How to Get Smarter, One Breath at a Time
By Lisa Takeuchi Cullen
At 4:30, when most of Wall Street is winding down, Walter Zimmermann begins a high-stakes, high-wire act conducted live before a paying audience. About 200 institutional investors—including airlines and oil companies—shell out up to $3,000 a month to catch his daily webcast on the volatile energy markets, a performance that can move hundreds of millions of dollars. "I'm not paid to be wrong—I can tell you that," Zimmermann says. But as he clicks through dozens of screens and graphics on three computers, he's the picture of focused calm. Zimmermann, 54, watched most of his peers in energy futures burn out long ago. He attributes his brain's enduring sharpness not to an intravenous espresso drip but to 40 minutes of meditation each morning and evening. The practice, he says, helps him maintain the clarity he needs for quick, insightful analysis—even approaching happy hour. "Meditation," he says, "is my secret weapon." Everyone around the water cooler knows that meditation reduces stress. But with the aid of advanced brainscanning technology, researchers are beginning to show that meditation directly affects the function and structure of the brain, changing it in ways that appear to increase attention span, sharpen focus and improve memory. One recent study found evidence that the daily practice of meditation thickened the parts of the brain's cerebral cortex responsible for decision making, attention and memory. Sara Lazar, a research scientist at Massachusetts General Hospital, presented preliminary results last November that showed that the gray matter of 20 men and women who meditated for just 40 minutes a day was thicker than that of people who did not. Unlike in previous studies focusing on Buddhist monks, the subjects were Boston-area workers practicing a Western-style of meditation called mindfulness or insight meditation. "We showed for the first time that you don't have to do it all day for similar results," says Lazar. What's more, her research suggests that meditation may slow the natural thinning of that section of the cortex that occurs with age. The forms of meditation Lazar and other scientists are studying involve focusing on an image or sound or on one's breathing. Though deceptively simple, the practice seems to exercise the parts of the brain that help us pay attention. "Attention is the key to learning, and meditation helps you voluntarily regulate it," says Richard Davidson, director of the Laboratory for Affective Neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin. Since 1992, he has collaborated with the Dalai Lama to study the brains of Tibetan monks, whom he calls "the Olympic athletes of meditation." Using caps with electrical sensors placed on the monks' heads, Davidson has picked up unusually powerful gamma waves that are better synchronized in the Tibetans than they are in novice meditators. Studies have linked this gamma-wave synchrony to increased awareness. Many people who meditate claim the practice restores their energy, allowing them to perform better at tasks that require attention and concentration. If so, wouldn't a midday nap work just as well? No, says Bruce O'Hara, associate professor of biology at the University of Kentucky. In a study to be published this year, he had college students either meditate, sleep or watch TV. Then he tested them for what psychologists call psychomotor vigilance, asking them to hit a button when a light flashed on a screen. Those who had been taught to meditate performed 10% better—"a huge jump, statistically speaking," says O'Hara. Those who snoozed did significantly worse. "What it means," O'Hara theorizes, "is that meditation may restore synapses, much like sleep but without the initial grogginess." Not surprisingly, given those results, a growing number of corporations—including Deutsche Bank, Google and Hughes Aircraft—offer meditation classes to their workers. Jeffrey Abramson, CEO of Tower Co., a Washington-based development firm, says 75% of his staff attend free classes in transcendental meditation. Making employees sharper is only one benefit; studies say meditation also improves productivity, in large part by preventing stress-related illness and reducing absenteeism. Another benefit for employers: meditation seems to help regulate emotions, which in turn helps people get along. "One of the most important domains meditation acts upon is emotional intelligence—a set of skills far more consequential for life success than cognitive intelligence," says Davidson. So, for a New Year's resolution that can pay big dividends at home and at the office, try this: just breathe.
