Energy healing is real, scientific experiment shows
A recent blog post from Indiana University reveals that healing energy can be measured using a geomagnetometer (also known as a gaussmeter). The experimenter was inspired by two previous studies that had shown magnetic field variations near the hands of trained healers. In this case, however, the changes in the magnetic field did not occur in the vicinity of the healer, but near the recipients of the healing, a cage of mice with cancerous tumours. The magnetic field changes appeared "in waves that resembled symmetrical 'chirp waves,' with a decrease in frequency of the oscillations followed by an increase in frequency," in effect going from random noise to organized wave activity, and then back to random noise again. When the same experiment was repeated with the healer over 600 miles away, the same oscillations appeared during the healings. The experimenter concluded that "the magnetic field activity observed during distant healing was identical to that observed during hands-on healing (on-site), suggesting a common mechanism for both types of healing." The treated mice recovered.
