February 2017

As I’ve thought about and grieved the loss of Prof. Dr. Ivan Engler in recent days, I once again became retrospective about the changes in this marvelous field of complementary medicine that we share.

As I watched the Grammy’s the other night I was engrossed by the beautiful music of John Legend while they presented the names of those we lost over the past year. Typical stuff in so many ways.

But then they mentioned Pete Fountain. From within my era, training and love of music I enjoyed and loved the instrumental and rock-and-roll of the late 60s and early 70s. Artists like Boots Randolph, Floyd Cramer and Chet Atkins left us a legacy of fun but good music that warmed the soul and let us dance. My surprise at remembering the passing of Pete Fountain who was a member of that same group came from the realization that all of these great musicians (and likewise so many others) are irrevocably gone. The same can of course be said about other greats like Michael Jackson, Prince and David Bowie. But for me, that era and genre of music from ‘my youth’ is now the past and it’s once again time to look to what is happening in the field today and where it will take us into the future.

Such ruminations led me back to New Years pep talks and business outlooks and bold looks at the future of complementary medicine. But I really couldn’t have said it much better than my editorial “rant” from last July’s Volume 12, Issue #7 of “The Bridge”. I repeat it here today as a reminder that it is time for all of us to pick up the challenge. And I dare you! It is time for each and every one of us to be involved in ongoing study, research and application of the various forms of Complementary and Biological Medicine available to us today. We will create the future.


Please follow this link to see this sad announcement after the passing of Prof. Dr. Ivan Engler.

There are times when we all sit back and wonder about the future and about what we will be doing in 5 or 10 or more years. It’s just a natural response when we think about family, or consider what’s happening in our practice today, or when we are making a business plan for next year, or . . . As many of us who have pioneered and worked in this amazing field of Biological Medicine start to – dare I say it – age gracefully, thoughts of the future and how this form of medicine will transform in the coming years become foremost as we move forward.

At other times, it is a matter of looking back and pondering the innovation and sheer invention of the great ones from our past like Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, Dr. Reinhold Voll, Dr. Fritz Kramer, Dr. Helmut Schimmel, Dr. Franz Morell and so many, many others. For example, homeopathy is more than 250 years old while Occidental Institute will celebrate 45 years in continuous business during July 2017 (OMG, how did that happen?!).

Many of us have experienced and benefitted from their imaginative development of point and medication testing and BioResonance Therapy. But how will these methods take us into the future? By now we all know the story of Polaroid, and how with the implementation of digital cameras that largest supplier of photographic film went bankrupt in a matter of a few years. And yet, are we taking that purely business lesson into consideration in our modern Biological Medicine practice?

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” Socrates

I read with interest the article by Dr. Ronald Klatz of A4M fame regarding “Predictions in Technology and Health” (https://www.worldhealth.net/news/predictions-technology-health/) posted June 6, 2016. This is a nicely laid out article that is certainly thought provoking on many different levels.

But now it’s time to apply some of those predictions in our own practices if we are to remain modern, innovative and prepared for the future of information, energy and biological medicine. And for me these three terms tie the concept into a viable focus to move forward. Afterall, we are working with information – no matter whether we are talking about homeopathy, BioResonance, BioPhotons, PEMF or whatever, we are not only measuring the information of the body but are then utilizing energy and other biological methods to deliver that healing information back to the body.

Think about it for a minute. In July 2016 the Juno probe reached Jupiter after traveling for 5 years. If a human was to attempt such a journey (yeah, I know Star Trek fan that I am) how will they take care of their medical needs? There is no possible way to pack a whole pharmacy, doctor’s office and hospital into the long distance spacecraft. All such aspects would need to be self sufficient and self regenerating – wouldn’t they?

Just like with Polaroid we have examples of their scenario of obsolescence playing out in Europe with the large homeopathic companies. I remember visiting the Staufen Pharma (Müller Göppingen) Company with our tour groups many years ago. It was a huge plant and I would estimate they had over 500 employees. Homeopathy was at a peak of acceptance and application throughout Europe and many other countries around the world. Well, Staufen closed its doors during mid-2015. That’s right. It’s just gone. No more nosodes, no more specialty homeopathics, no more anything for which they were a leading well respected business and alternate pharmaceutical company. Just gone.

I see two factors in the demise of Staufen:

  1. All the controversy and regulation with CODEX in Europe and around the world. There was just too much regulation, too much restriction and too many attempts to over-generalize the production of these remedies into an internationally acceptable format.
  2. Electronic “recording” of remedy information.

And there is that word again. All of those cabinets and shelves and cupboards of stored homeopathic ampules and test sets from the days of Dr. Voll, Dr. Kramer and Dr. Sturm* have simply become obsolete. With 21st Century technical “recording” capabilities they have all been replaced with a single DVD and your laptop or iPad. Homeopathic (and all) remedy information is now available in a digital format. Where will it take us next? I think this would fit on that future spacecraft on the way to Jupiter, don’t you? And now – without all the hassles of importation and government regulation – every practitioner worldwide can have access to 10’s of thousands of remedies not only for diagnostic purposes but also for therapeutic application.

It is time for all of us to look at and think about the possibilities for our practices in terms of how information, technology and energy will affect them in the coming months and years. Please don’t misunderstand me on this however, as I go back to other rants (oh sorry – other editorials) that I have published. As important as the future is to how we proceed in our current everyday practice we must remember that the future is built on and developed from the past.

“The future is an unknown, but a somewhat predictable unknown. To look to the future we must first look back upon the past. That is where the seeds of the future were planted. I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.” Albert Einstein.

It is a tribute to the genius of practitioners and researchers such as Dr. Voll, Dr. Morell, Dr. Popp, Prof Heine, Prof. Engler and Dr. Schimmel that we are already utilizing information and energy to assess and treat our patients. But it is the developments and changes that we are witnessing today in such companies as Med-Tronik that will bring these venerable “old” methods into this era of digital and information medicine. We need to pay attention to these changes.

Going back to my premise of the spacecraft with humans aboard, it is easy, space saving and economical to incorporate the four major methods recommended by OIRF into that journey (the Russians did some of this in their space program long ago), or into your practice for that matter, to create a sustainable and renewable Biological Medicine practice. And it’s all energy and information under the umbrella that OIRF has called Biological Medicine since 1982. Here are the four recommendations outlined in one of my previous rants (er – editorials):

  1. Inhaled Ionized Oxygen – Provides pure energy to the body without the need for processing. Gives the body the energy to heal.
  2. BioPhoton Light Therapy – Information is transferred inter- and intra-cellularly by photons. This is your communication pathway for the information.
  3. MORA® BioResonance Therapy – Assessing the body’s situation through point and medication testing (EAV, Vega, Cornelissen, etc.); while therapy measures the energy and information of the body, processes it (via amplification, filtration, inversion, etc.) and sends it back to the patient to promote self healing.
  4. Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field Therapy – To reassert and stabilize the body’s response to the earth’s natural magnetic field.

In considering the efficacy of our practice and its viability into the future, it all comes back to what we are each prepared to invest in and to utilize. First must be knowledge through education which will always enrich us and can never be taken away from us. Then we have to look at the “tools of our trade”. Which methods or devices will work best for the most reasonable price for the majority of our patients? Times are changing as they always seem to do, but it is how we respond to that change that will predict our patient care and effectiveness into the future.

“The future is now. Roll up your sleeves and let your passion flow. The country we carry in our hearts is waiting.” Bruce Springsteen.

In closing, I found a bunch of different sites when I Googled “future predictions”. To say the least, it was interesting and thought provoking reading. Here’s a couple that I found:

Long list of predictions under Biotech/Medicine (plus multiple other topics) included:

  • Extended Life
  • Organ replacement
  • Designer bodies
  • Personalized drugs
  • Human cloning
  • Virtual/Robot medicine
  • Age reversal
  • A capsule that can be swallowed which will cure most diseases
  • And so on . . .

FutureTimeline.net (very interesting site)
Many predictions outlined within a yearly-based timeline. Some really cool stuff!

Yours in health,

* Note: Dr. Walter Sturm was a “collector” (a true sulfur personality as Dr. Sandy Wood once named him) and he was quite proud that he had well over 30,000 individual remedies in cabinets at his seated test position. All of those physical “one of everything” remedies, homeopathic samples and test sets are now safely stored and used in the offices of Dr. Karim Dhanani who is preserving that legacy for OIRF.
