Cross Currents: The Perils of Electropollution, the Promise of Electromedicine
Cross Currents describes the meeting of two opposing trends: the rapid rise of electromedicine, which promises to unlock the secrets of healing, and the parallel rise of electropollution, which poses a serious environmental danger.
In this groundbreaking book, Robert Becker, M.D., explains how new and nontraditional healing techniques such as acupuncture, homeopathy, visualization, hypnosis, and electrotherapy work through an invisible common source – the body’s electrical system. But at the same time that exciting insights into how to use the body’s inherent healing abilities are gained, electromagnetic fields radiating from powerlines, radar, microwave ovens, VDTs, satellites, radios, and even electric blankets are attacking our bodies’ resources. Researchers are finding that this radiation correlates with increases in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, AIDS, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
Cross Currents offers practical ways to protect ourselves in our homes and offices from the hazardous effects of electromagnetic pollution, and teaches us how to engage the healing energies of electromagnetism. Dr. Becker’s powerful synthesis reshapes the future of medicine by putting life energy back into our medical perspective and by enabling us to see the body in the context of its total living environment – the earth’s electromagnetic field.
