Consciousness-based healthcare


Consciousness-based healthcare

Consciousness-Based Healthcare (CBH), an emerging field of complementary and alternative medicine, is the application of consciousness-based interventions to achieve tangible, beneficial outcomes across a wide range of health concerns including physical and emotional issues.

CBH is a complementary and alternative medicine modality based on the concept that consciousness can migrate through intention from one person to another being (human or animal) and have beneficial, tangible, and lasting effects on the physical body of the recipient. A form of noninvasive intervention, it is in alignment with the holistic healthcare paradigm that embraces the relationship among mind, body, and spirit.[1]

CBH differs from mind-body medicine in that CBH represents a direct, causal link between a practitioner and a recipient. The premise of mind-body medicine is that the mind of a person affects his or her own body, whereas in CBH, the mind of the practitioner, though intention, can direct nonlocal consciousness at a distance to achieve a healing effect through the migration of consciousness from one individual to another.

Pioneers in CBH report that they realize the capacity to achieve such beneficial changes through moving into a higher or altered state of consciousness. These states of consciousness typically are achieved through spiritual practices.[2]

The mechanisms by which CBH works have not yet been quantified and are currently being researched at universities and institutions.[3][4][5] A growing number of researchers and scientists are building a body of empirical evidence that supports the beneficial effect of consciousness and the nonlocal mind on human health. Anecdotal reports are common, but increasingly, the results of CBH are being validated scientifically.[6][7][8] Research in this emerging field is ongoing.

Evidence in Support of Efficacy

The relationship of the non-local mind migrating at a distance to achieve tangible, beneficial effects in hard and soft tissue, as well as emotional benefits, is being documented in outcome studies reviewed by medical experts.[9] Numerous physicians are attesting to the benefits of CBH.[10][11]

Below are two examples of cases in which CBH was shown to have effects that exceeded what conventional medicine was able to achieve:

(1) CBH was used for a young man who was born with temporal band syndrome, a craniofacial disorder that had led to over 35 invasive surgical procedures in an attempt to give him a normal appearance. The surgeries resulted in considerable scarring and a less-than-desirable appearance. Joseph Pierce Farrell applied CBH and achieved a substantial improvement in the aesthetic appearance of the patient's face. (See Pre Post Cranio Facial CBH at http://www.josephpiercefarrell.com/gallery.html.) The post-intervention picture was taken one week after noninvasive intervention by Farrell, which consisted of three 60-minute sessions done over a one-week period. A photographer recorded the process, in which the changes could be observed as they were occurring. Photographs of the process of the facial transformation were published in Manifesting Michelangelo.[12]

(2) In an adult male who had been diagnosed with a Monteggia fracture of the right arm, the attending physician's prognosis was that the shattered bone would require insertion of a metal plate and screws. Prior to a surgical intervention, he had a CBH session that achieved a total healing, negating the need for surgery or physical therapy.[13] For pre-CBH and post–CBH intervention X-rays of the arm, see Pre Post Healing Shattered Bone CBH at http://www.josephpiercefarrell.com/gallery.html.

The beneficial effects of CBH intervention are not without precedent. In a controlled, double-blind study of a practitioner of Therapeutic Touch (which involves focused intention on the part of the practitioner, not physical touch), 13 of 23 human subjects experienced complete healing of their surgical wounds by the sixteenth day of the study. None of the control group (non-treatment) subjects had healed in that time frame.[14]

In studies reported by the Global Health Institute (GHI), blind reviews by objective, unpaid physicians in preliminary, pilot outcome studies based on rating sheets established a 90% efficacy rate in achieving desired outcomes with the use of CBH modalities for the face. In 48 cases from 2003 to 2008, study participants received consciousness-based interventions focused on features of the nose such as alignment, decreasing bulb size, decreasing swelling, and revising unsatisfactory results from prior surgery. Of the 48 participants, 15 paired photos were selected of those that consented to participate in a study and permit their images to be reviewed by physicians and researchers. Pre- and post-intervention images were independently evaluated by a blinded, board-certified plastic surgeon.

Of those that consented to participate in the study, 15 participants met the study criteria and were deemed to have good comparability. Of these participants, 13 came in requesting changes to the nose and 8 sought care of facial skin, including tightening, pore reduction, and improvement in skin tone and circulation. (Note that some participants sought care for both the nose and facial skin.) The GHI team, which consisted of two medical doctors, a senior research scientist, research associate, and chaplain/clinician, found evidence of a beneficial effect in all the post-intervention photographs.[15]

Human consciousness has been shown to affect cells even when they have been removed from the body. The value of studies that involve cells and tissues rather than human beings is that this approach rules out the possibility that results were due to the placebo response or the effect of positive thinking.[16]

In a laboratory experiment conducted at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), human brain cells grew more when exposed to healing intention from practitioners of the complementary and alternative medicine healing modality Johrei. The odds that this result occurred by chance were 1,100 to 1. In control-group cells, there was no significant trend.[17]

In a study conducted at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, qigong practitioners treated animal-tissue samples as they would treat human patients, standing two to five feet from test tubes containing the tissues during each six-minute trial. In all nine trials, the biochemical reaction in the tissues was modified by an average of 15 percent—an effect rate typical of many biologically significant reactions in the body, which had less than a 1 in 20 probability of occurring due to chance.[18]

The short film Pioneers in Integrative Healthcare: Exploring the Relationship of Consciousness and Healthcare, which debuted in 2008 at the Yale Club & Fordham University, New York, and the Women’s Health & Wellness Forum in Aspen, Colorado, features commentary by medical doctors, scientists, and patients on the efficacy of CBH.

Theories on CBH Mechanisms

Presently, the means by which CBH operates have not been conclusively identified. A foundational concept that may help explain the efficacy of the practice is the idea of the "nonlocal mind." A term popularized by Larry Dossey, MD, in his book Recovering the Soul,[19] the "nonlocal mind" describes the mind as something not confined to the human brain or body, but extending infinitely throughout space and time. In CBH, practitioners may be using the nonlocal mind to affect recipients, migrating their consciousness into the recipient's body to create physical changes.

An overview of the basic CBH process is that the practitioner effects a change in consciousness (connects to a "higher" or broader source, one beyond their ordinary awareness), directs their attention to a recipient with the intention of creating specific changes in the recipient's body, and migrates their consciousness to the body of that person. Touching or manipulating the recipient is not necessary; the changes are believed to be effected by the attention and state of consciousness of the practitioner.[20][21]

A key factor in CBH appears to be the state of consciousness and intention of the practitioner, who focuses on the recipient with an attitude of empathy and compassion. Feelings of empathy and compassion are reported to be present in many cases of CBH and may be the means through which the connection is made between the two parties.[22]

Based on what is presently theorized, CBH may work in the following way:[23]

(1) Neurological activity: change in state of consciousness of trained healthcare practitioner.

(2) Change agent: the nonlocal mind, energetic waves.

(3) Molecular activity in the target pathology.

Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health, University of Arizona, uses the term energy healing (which he defines as "a set of complementary methods used for healing and health," as well as "an emerging paradigm for understanding the nature of all healing and even of the nature of existence itself") [24] essentially as a synonym for CBH. Schwartz theorizes that energy healing may work in much the same way mobile phones do. He postulates that our bodies may be like networks of individual mobile phones with coordinating stations, with all components sharing energy and information.[25]

Basics for Successful CBH

CBH practitioners that have been observed and reported by medical doctors to have achieved beneficial healing effects have been reported to have at least two factors in common: a transformational experience in which they connected with Source energy, and the ability to move into an altered state of consciousness prior to performing CBH.[26][27][28] Typically, these individuals are in an altered state of consciousness when they have this type of transformational experience.

It seems to be necessary that a CBH practitioner be in an altered state of consciousness, beyond the typical human waking state of consciousness, to perform transformations. This state sometimes is achieved through spiritual practices such as meditation. The altered state of consciousness allows the practitioner to effect beneficial changes in the recipient.

History

An emerging field in the modern world, CBH has roots in shamanism, which has been practiced in many cultures throughout the ages. Anecdotal reports of shamans and healers have told of instant healing of broken bones and other maladies, performed by a shaman through focused intention and connection to a higher source.

Investigation of the role of consciousness in healthcare has been endorsed by modern-day conventional medical experts. Dr. Jonas Salk, Nobel Prize laureate and Inventor of the polio vaccine, made this observation in 1957: "The essence of the crisis presenting humanity is that we are approaching the limits of our knowledge and we are now in need of turning our attention to the consciousness of ourselves."

In his 1999 book, Reinventing Medicine: Beyond Mind-Body to a New Era of Healing,[29] physician and consciousness researcher Larry Dossey describes three "eras" of modern medicine. In Era I, which began in the mid-1800s, the human body was viewed as mechanistic, and consciousness was believed to be limited to the physical brain. During Era II, which started in the mid-1900s, the role of consciousness in healthcare began to be rediscovered. It was found that the mind could affect the body, sometimes profoundly, and that many physical conditions were related to states of mind. Era II heralded the advent of mind-body medicine in modern healthcare.

Era III began at the inception of the new millennium. Dossey writes, "The hallmark of Era III is what I refer to as nonlocal mind. In Era III, we rediscover the ancient realization that consciousness can free itself from the body and that it has the potential to act not just locally on one's own body, as in Era II, but also nonlocally on distant things, events, and people, even though they may be unaware that they are being influenced." [30]

Evidence of Consciousness Connection Among Humans

CBH is an emerging field, and the premise that the consciousness of one person can create changes in the physical body of another is not widely accepted as having been conclusively proved. However, a considerable body of research exists that indicates that the consciousness of one person can be perceived by another person through means other than the recognized physical senses.

English biochemist Rupert Sheldrake, PhD, has performed numerous research studies in the area of nonlocal, extrasensory consciousness communication among humans. In surveys he conducted of adults in Europe and the United States, 70 to 90 percent reported having sensed when they were being looked at from behind.[31]

Dean Radin, PhD, senior scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, has been conducting scientific research on parapsychology for decades, and his findings support the premise of nonlocal consciousness connection among individuals. In his book, Entangled Minds, Radin writes: "The first issue is whether the fabric of reality allows for nonlocal connections. As we've seen, this question has been answered in the affirmative for 80 years theoretically and for 20 years experimentally. Quantum theory successfully describes physical behavior from the atomic to cosmological domains, with no experimental violations observed to date. It would be astonishingly unlikely to find that one small domain, the one that our bodies and minds happen to inhabit, are somehow not best described as quantum objects." [32]

Numerous controlled studies [33][34] and case reports [35] have documented that people can gain the attention of others and transmit detailed information long-distance, without any physical sensory communication.

Importance, Applications, and Benefits

CBH potentially holds profound promise to provide solutions to a broad range of serious health issues that currently defy treatment by conventional clinical care. Some of the patients that have benefited markedly from CBH interventions had been told by top medical professionals that their treatment options had been exhausted.[36][37]

Such benefits have been observed and attested to by board-certified medical doctors. Frank Salvatore, MD, noted, "I have been present for a number of sessions where participants in observational studies have had work done. These individuals had previously been cared for by physicians at some of the highest-level institutions in the New York City area and were told there was nothing further that could be done for them. I have seen a dramatic improvement in both the physical and psychological state of participants." [38]

CBH is being used in research settings to restore to normality body tissues and functions adversely affected by trauma, disease, or birth defects, as well as to create aesthetic improvements to the face.[39] CBH has been shown to affect all types of soft and hard tissue, from the molecular to the organ level, and has been used as an intervention to care for broken bones, restore circulation to limbs that have undergone trauma, and to reduce inflammation in joints.[40]

Potential areas of application include:

• Rehabilitation • Intervention to accelerate post-operative healing • Integration with conventional physical therapy • Integration with cosmetic improvement therapies

In the realm of healthcare, spirituality and pastoral care typically have been considered to be benefits limited to death coping and recovery, but new evidence is providing strong support that suggests this is a limited view of the efficacy of spiritually based interventions. CBH is being shown to be far more effective than had been previously believed and taught in medical schools. Medical school curricula have been based primarily based on a mechanistic paradigm that excludes the existence or the efficacy of spiritually based interventions or the power of the nonlocal mind to heal.[41]

Controversy

The role of consciousness in healthcare is increasingly gaining attention from healthcare professionals, the news media, and the general public, but presently CBH is not widely recognized by medical authorities as a healthcare modality. Part of the difficulty is that scientists at universities and institutes have not fully explained the mechanisms of how CBH works. The beneficial effects of numerous CBH sessions have been witnessed and testified to by medical doctors, but it has not been conclusively shown that such effects were due to the intervention of the practitioner rather to other factors.

In cases where the recipient was aware of the intervention, it is possible that the reported benevolent outcome was influenced by the recipient's belief in the efficacy of the modality (sometimes called the placebo response).

In addition, numerous claims of miraculous healings throughout the ages (sometimes called faith healing) have been shown to be either unverifiable or patently false, often due to hysteria, but sometimes due to deliberate sleight of hand. In these cases, the interventions were not done in clinical settings and generally were not observed by medical professionals.

Ongoing Research

The importance of research into the effects of consciousness on the human body is being acknowledged not only by those engaged in alternative and complementary approaches to healthcare, but also by more traditional organizations such as the American Medical Association (AMA). An AMA paper published in 1997 addressed this topic, mentioning that "Advocates call for research into the 'nonlocal effects of consciousness' as well as for more traditional kinds of review such as the effects of personal belief, values, and meaning on health and illness." [42]

In addition, the AMA advises its members to "Maintain an open-minded attitude about all potentially new therapeutic interventions" and "Avoid hubristic and arrogant attitudes toward alternative medical practices because one might be embarrassed by the subsequent demonstrations of their clinical efficacy." [43]

Organizations that are leaders in exploring the relationship between consciousness and healthcare include the following:

The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)

Founded by astronaut Edgar Mitchell in 1973, IONS is dedicated to broadening knowledge of the nature and potentials of the mind and consciousness, for the purpose of enhancing human well-being and the quality of life. It is based in Petaluma, California.

The International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine (ISSSEEM)

ISSSEEM is a nonprofit, public-benefit corporation that was founded in 1989 for the study of the basic sciences and medical and therapeutic applications of subtle energies. It is based in Lafayette, Colorado.

The Center for Consciousness Studies, University of Arizona

The Center for Consciousness Studies at the University of Arizona was founded in 1998. The center's mission is to bring together the perspectives of philosophy, science, medicine, and the arts and humanities to move toward an integrated understanding of human consciousness. The center conducts ongoing research in consciousness studies, including CBH. It is located in Tucson, Arizona.

The Global Health Institute (GHI)

A 501(c)3 foundation that was founded in 2004, the GHI supports research (primarily at academic institutions and other nonprofit organizations) and provides education on the discoveries, new therapies, and emerging knowledge on integrating healthcare with consciousness. The institute is based in New York.

Pioneers in the Field of Nonlocal Mind and CBH

Following are descriptions of notable CBH pioneers. (This is not a comprehensive list, but presents examples of those making advances in this emerging field.)

Larry Dossey

Larry Dossey, MD,[44] introduced the concept of the nonlocal mind, on which CBH is based. Dossey, former executive editor of the peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, has authored numerous books and articles on topics related to CBH. He is most well-known for conducting studies on the efficacy of prayer for healing, Dossey's studies, some of which were done at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, are targeted at compiling data that demonstrates conclusive findings on the effects of consciousness on healing. Dossey has been speaking publicly on the role of spirituality in healthcare since the early 1990s and has been featured in many television, radio, and print interviews.

Gary Schwartz

Gary Schwartz, PhD,[45] serves as director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona. The author of several books on the topic of consciousness and healing, he is the founder of the university's Center for Frontier Medicine in Biofield Science, which he directed for four years. Schwartz has taken an active role in investigating and scientifically validating the effectiveness of CBH.

Marilyn Schlitz

Marilyn Schlitz, PhD,[46] a research scientist that specializes in investigating the relationship of consciousness and healing, serves as president and CEO of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and senior scientist at the Research Institute of California Pacific Medical Center. She is co-founder of the Integral Health Network, author of numerous articles on consciousness and healthcare, and co-editor of Consciousness and Healing: Integral Approaches to Mind Body Medicine. Schlitz has taught at Trinity University, Stanford University, and Harvard University and has lectured at numerous venues including the United Nations and Smithsonian Institution.

Joseph Pierce Farrell

Joseph Pierce Farrell [47] is a founding board member of the Global Health Institute, where he serves as the ambassador's chair in Consciousness Studies and the director of Consciousness-Based Healthcare and Clinical Care. He also serves as the spiritual director of the Center for Integrative Healthcare in Florida. In addition to his research endeavors, Farrell is a visiting hospital chaplain in the US and Europe. He is a lecturer at the university level and the author of Manifesting Michelangelo.[48] His books on health and healing have been published in the US and Europe. In 2005 he was appointed as special advisor to on Scientific Dimensions of Spirituality and Consciousness to the United Nations NGO committee on spirituality and global concerns.

Following a transcendent experience in January 2000, Farrell discovered he had the ability to transform human tissue through focused intention and connection to a higher source.[49] Since then, he has performed hundreds of noninvasive interventions, including restoring the facial features of disfigured children and adults, mending broken bones, and virtually eliminating an inoperable brain tumor.[50] Farrell's work, an ongoing subject of research, has been observed and studied by medical doctors and scientists.

Farrell describes his process prior to administering an intervention as entering into a higher state of consciousness through spiritual practices that permit him to connect to Source energy. He then, through intention, achieves a state of empathy with the recipient, holding an intention of creating a beneficial improvement that the participant is seeking. He utilizes healing visualization, envisioning the compromised area as being healthy, whole, and functional. The beneficial changes achieved have been reported to be rapid and permanent. Farrell typically is in proximity to the recipient (usually a few feet away), but he does not use his hands or touch the person during the transformational process.[51]

Elizabeth Muss, MD, a cardiologist whose injured knee returned to a healthy state in a session with Farrell, stated, "I decided that I would be my own guinea pig. I would see how it went so that I could refer patients if it seemed to be a modality that worked. And it does…What was unusual was what he did, to watch my knee transform." [52]

Len Horovitz, MD, board-certified in Internal and Pulmonary medicine, noted, "Joseph’s work is at the frontiers of integrative medicine. I cannot explain how he performs his procedures or how biological processes are affected. Nonetheless, I witnessed his work in 'conscious-based tissue transformation,' and I was sufficiently intrigued by the potential of this approach to become the chairman of the Medical Advisory Board for the Global Health Institute." [53]

Eric Pearl

Eric Pearl, DC,[54] a chiropractor, had been running a successful chiropractic practice in Los Angeles for 12 years when his patients began allegedly experiencing physical changes and healings beyond what can be accomplished through chiropractic treatments. Starting in August 1993, his patients reported they could feel Pearl's hands on their body even when he was not physically touching them.[55]

Conditions that have been resolved or markedly improved through Pearl's noninvasive intervention include cancer, AIDS-related disorders, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, and the effects of cerebral palsy and birth defects.[56] In his sessions, Pearl typically holds his hands near the recipient's body without actually touching the person. Sessions may last anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour. The beneficial changes typically occur immediately or are noticed shortly after the session. In most cases, the changes apparently are permanent.

Author of The Reconnection: Heal Others, Heal Yourself,[57] Pearl travels internationally, teaching seminars on what he calls Reconnective Healing. His work has been studied by scientists, medical professionals, and researchers at healthcare and educational institutions throughout the world. In addition, Pearl is involved in research programs currently underway at several institutions internationally, under the guidance of research scientists including Gary Schwartz, PhD; William Tiller, PhD; and Konstantin Korotkov, PhD.[58]
