Neste trabalho propoe-se que a bioregulacao da homeodinâmica seja alcancada pelo campo biologico do organismo. De facto, a nivel holistico, os sistemas existentes sao complexos, nao lineares, dinâmicos, bem organizados e bem organizados de acordo com os principios do nao equilibrio termodinâmico dos sistemas abertos e da teoria do caos. Trocam constantemente energia com informacao, a varios niveis de organizacao, com os que os rodeiam para que se possam manter. Possuem relacoes a um nivel…

Perspectives, Measurability and Effects of Non-Contact Biofield-Based Practices: A Narrative Review of Quantitative Research

TLDR
This narrative review aims to provide an easy to consult partial overview of the history, theory and findings of quantitative research strategies exploring non-contact biofield-based practices, and stimulate the reader's mind with the raised hypotheses, catalyzing further research on the subject to confirm or deny the reported outcomes.

Recognition and Classification of Plasma Clots of Bioelectograms

TLDR
The problem of analyzing the images of human emanations obtained by bioelectrography, a snapshot of human emissions obtained in high frequency current, and designing an algorithm for recognizing and classifying the forms of plasma clots is solved.

Interpersonal Relationships and Human Biofield

Many factors stand behind interpersonal relationships, most of them experimentally and socially approved to be social and personal factors. Very few writes pointed at or discussed human bio-field or

Can Western science provide a foundation for acupuncture?

  • B. Rubik
  • Biology
    Alternative therapies in health and medicine
  • 1995
TLDR
This keynote presentation will review three different hypotheses of acupuncture, two of which lie within the dominant scientific paradigm, and a third that is built upon frontier ideas at the edge of the new science of bioelectromagnetics.

Media Reviews: Spiritual Healing: Scientific Validation of a Healing Revolution

TLDR
This book serves as a supplement to Healing Research, which introduces readers to spiritual healing, healer abilities, and parapsychology and contains the author’s thorough review of 191 randomized controlled investigations about spiritual healings.

The biofield hypothesis: its biophysical basis and role in medicine.

  • B. Rubik
  • Biology
    Journal of alternative and complementary medicine
  • 2002
TLDR
The rapid signal propagation of electromagnetic fields comprising the biofield as well as its holistic properties may account for the rapid, holistic effects of certain alternative and complementary medical interventions.

The Unifying Concept of Information in Acupuncture and Other Energy Medicine Modalities

TLDR
An extended concept of information, meaning "that which informs," is proposed as a new way of thinking about how these medical modalities may work at various levels of organization in humans, including electromagnetic bioinformation, but may also go beyond it to include information conveyed by other fields more subtle than electromagnetic.

Energy medicine and the unifying concept of information.

  • B. Rubik
  • Medicine
    Alternative therapies in health and medicine
  • 1995
TLDR
Some of the hypotheses and challenges of energy medicine including healer interventions, electromagnetic therapies, and homeopathy are explored, together with new findings from the bioelectromagnetic field, that spell out the rudiments of a new paradigm for biology and medicine based on information.

Digital High-Voltage Electrophotographic Measures of the Fingertips of Subjects Pre- and Post-Qigong

TLDR
The GDV technique may be a valuable tool in assessing changes in parameters of the human biofield both clinically and in investigating mechanisms of action of complementary and alternative medicine interventions.

Quantitative analysis of reproducible changes in high-voltage electrophotography.

TLDR
It is believed that the images created in this study represent the interaction of biologically generated electromagnetic fields interacting with the corona discharge created by the electrophotographic device.

Divided legacy: a history of the schism in medical thought: progress and regress: J B Van Helmomt to Claude Bernard

  • R. Strohman
  • Biology
    Perspectives in biology and medicine
  • 1993
TLDR
The possibility that the medical sciences are in crisis is explored, with the conclusion that a mechanistic view alone will severely limit advances in understanding of the cell or organism viewed at a behavioral level—viewed whole.

Holism and Field Theories in Biology

Today’s biology, dominated by the molecular approach developed since about 1940, is suffocated by an immense number of experimental data on molecular aspects of biological functions which present an
