Coherent Excitations in Blood

  • Conference paper

Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)

Abstract

In Calgary, W.G. deHaas has had spectacular success in treating fractured bones which would not unite and infected bones which would not heal (deHaas, Lazarovici & Morrison 1979; deHaas, Morrison & Watson 1980) with pulsed magnetic fields. Patients have been spared otherwise Inevitable amputations. Dr. deHaas’ laboratory is next to mine and I always had an interest in his work. Two years ago while on Sabbatical leave I began to look for an explanation of the induced healing process at the cellular level. In the course of the search I came across the Frohlich (1968, 1980) theory of coherent excitations in living cells.
