Title: CANCER info from standard medical and alternative sites
Post by: Yowbarb on May 30, 2015, 01:50:29 PM
This is just to get this topic started.
One of my friends told me about NET cancer. We may soon have a separate topic on that.
I found these links about NET ... Note: It looks like the NET Cancer day happened Nov 2014, not sure...

Thanks for posting this Barb.

The zebra stripes are unique to NET cancer. They refer to the idea that "When you hear hoofbeats you think of horses. But it could be a zebra." In other words, think outside the paradigm.

NET stands for "Neuroendocrine tumor", or carcinoid, cancer. It is a rare cancer that is slow going, of unknown origin, and for which there is no cure. Traditional chemotherapy does not work on it so there is no research money being put toward finding a cure.

Surgery is the only option to lessen the tumor burden on the body. In some cases though that also involves removing organs or tissue that is not involved in the cancer such as when one or more tumors are strangling blood vessels cutting off blood flow to an area of the body.

Many people suffering from IBS, gluten sensitivity, Crohn's disease, and other digestive system disorders may in fact have NET as it is often mis diagnosed. The delay in diagnosis means many patients the cancer has spread from the primary to their liver and are so well dispersed throughout the body in minute size that it is considered Stage IV (end stage).

A CT scan with a specific nuclear tracer, repeated over 3 days, will show the NET whereas it won't show up on other types of scans, making it tough to even notice. Pancreatic cancer is a NET, as are some lung cancers. The most common area is the digestive system. NET is a disorder of the endocrine system so the entire hormonal network is involved. Many common foods trigger symptoms which are  flushing, nausea, abdominal distress, fatigue to varying degrees. Foods such as pineapple, avocados and bananas bring on the symptoms. Many other foods can also to lesser extent such as chocolate and coffee. Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN is one of the few medical centers in the US with a NET specialist. MN also has an NET support group, still a rare thing today.
Interestingly Louisiana has many NET specialists and medical centers. Perhaps being the center of the petrochemical industry may be the reason.

Sandostatin (octreotide) is an artificial hormonal material similar to what the body makes naturally, which is given as an injection to moderate NET symptoms, especially in Stage IV when the NET is widespread in minute tumors. Injections are given every 28 days. A typical Sandostatin injection of 30mg emulsion costs about $16,800.

For Stage IV NET with moderate tumor count of 3 to 20% of biopsies taken at surgery, the longevity is 5% for 5 years even with the monthly injections. A number of alternative approaches have been proposed. One is copper exclusion achieved by medication for up to 3 years in which copper is removed from the body. Another is the ketogenic diet with the protocol described in Cancer is a Metabolic Disease. See this video by Thomas A Seyfried,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEE-oU8_NSU

This diet must be done with medical supervision. As far as I know the only MD in the state of WI skilled in this is John Whitcomb MD of Brookfield Longevity near Milwaukee. He has many credentials for advanced study and work in anti aging and alternative healing. http://www.livelongmd.com

Grape Seed Extract More Effective Than Chemotherapy

Posted on December 21, 2015 by Soren Dreier
Author: Jonathan Landsman


For patients facing a diagnosis of life-threatening cancer, the recommended cure can often be as potentially harmful to health as the disease itself. But for many of these patients, scientific research shows a natural treatment using grape seed extract may hold the key to slowing the growth of cancer cells without the dangerous and deadly side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

In fact, some of the very traits that allow certain cancer cells to resist traditional therapies may make them particularly susceptible to treatment using natural grape seed extract. In fact, findings suggest that the benefits grow with more advanced stages of cancer.

Conventional ‘treatments’ will never cure cancer
This is not wishful thinking: grape seed extract benefits hold clinical significance. Unfortunately, cancer patients are often pushed to begin radical and invasive procedures – including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy – immediately following a diagnosis of cancer. And, sadly, fear tactics are often used to rush people into risky (ineffective) procedures – which are known to cause secondary cancers later in life.

To be perfectly clear, although a majority of healthcare providers tout the “importance” of conventional care, there is little evidence that undergoing these harmful procedures can actually halt or even slow the progression of cancer cells.

In fact, a study published back in 2003 showed that chemotherapy was ineffective a startling 97 percent of the time. Later studies found that chemotherapy caused critical damage to the DNA of healthy cells and that some cancer-treatment drugs actually caused cancer tumors to grow, sometimes at an alarming rate. Despite the growing mountain of evidence, the mainstream medical community continues to push chemotherapy and radiation as the only hope for cancer patients.
There are many ways to naturally cure cancer. The NaturalHealth365 INNER CIRCLE offers over 300 audio/video programs (and counting!) plus over 200 integrative healthcare providers talking about natural ways to detoxify the body and boost immune function.

Let’s face the truth: There is substantial evidence that cancer patients suffer greatly when undergoing these treatments, including increased incidence of organ damage, premature aging, sexual dysfunction, neuropathy, cancer recurrence and secondary cancers, dental problems, diabetes, endocrine changes, fatigue, hypothyroidism, memory loss and incontinence, among other conditions.

By contrast, there is no evidence of harmful side effects from the use of grape seed extract. Of course, the obvious must be said, grape seed extract should never be considered the ‘only way’ to treat cancer. To successfully overcome a cancer diagnosis – one must develop a comprehensive approach to remove unwanted toxins, nourish the body with high-quality nutrients and, of course, address any other physical, mental or emotional issues such as dental problems, systemic infections or chronic issues of anger.

Great news for cancer patients
: Natural, lifesaving alternatives are available today
In the journal Cancer Letters, a December 2012 article uncovered that grape seed extract was effective against colorectal cancer in experiments using cultured cancer cells. It also noted that grape seed extract benefits increased with the higher stages of cancer.

How to stay healthy and fight cancer with parsley
Dec 16, 2015


Parsley is often used as a decorative garnish, but it may be the world’s most underappreciated herb. When you understand the amazing health and healing potential of this vibrant, curly green, you’ll realize it’s a lot more than a decoration.

Parsley is a great source of antioxidant nutrients. It boosts your liver health, and it’s good for your eyes. Perhaps most impressive of all, components of parsley have been found to help prevent — and even fight — cancer.

Parsley’s anti-cancer power
Apigenin, a compound found in parsley, has repeatedly been found to have strong anti-cancer properties.
In fact, more than 600 PubMed-indexed journal articles relate to the compound’s role in cancer. In research published September 2015 in Oncotarget, scientists for the first time were able to identify how apigenin is able to effectively slow down or stop an undesirable enzyme called IKKA, which plays a role in cancer progression. Their conclusion? Apigenin has the potential to significantly reduce cancer progression.

The researchers also showed how, in mice, apigenin stops tumor growth and lowers the growth rate of dangerous cancer cells.
But this research is not alone in identifying apigenin’s anticancer abilities. Some other examples:
   •   A 2008 clinical trial used apigenin, along with green tea, to great success in reducing the rate of cancer in patients with colon cancer.
   •   A 2012 study at the University of Missouri found that apigenin was able to effectively treat breast cancer.
   •   A 2013 study in PubMed.gov found that apigenin killed up to 86 percent of lung cancer cells in vitro.

Also, the volatile oils in parsley neutralize certain types of carcinogens, and make this herb a “chemoprotective” food — one that protects healthy tissues from the toxic effects of anticancer drugs. And parsley is also a good source of carotenoids, which help protect the body against cancer-causing cellular damage.

How to take advantage of the anticancer compounds in parsley

Dried parsley — with 13,000 mg per 100 grams — is one of the most abundant sources of apigenin. On the other hand, fresh parsley has a good amount as well, with 225 to 300 mg per 100 grams.
To get a 10 mg dose as used in a clinical trial by Prof. Harald Hoensch of the University of Frankfurt, you would need to take one tablespoon of raw chopped parsley per day. Or you could sprinkle a small amount of dried parsley into your food.

Other sources of apigenin include grapefruit, peppermint, thyme, raw celery, and rutabagas, as well as chamomile flower tea.
When you begin to add parsley to your meals, here’s a tip: much of the vitamins and volatile compounds are lost during cooking, so eat it raw or add it at the end of cooking, right before serving.

Using parsley safely

As far as the safety of eating parsley, cancer advisor Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D. warns that while generally safe, apigenin may cause undesired interactions with other drugs. There was one laboratory study that seemed to show that apigenin interfered with a standard chemotherapy drug used in the treatment of leukemia. So, Dr. Moss suggests, “It might be wise to NOT take high doses of this chemical if you are currently undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.”

Parsley’s other health benefits

Parsley has some powerful cancer-fighting potential, but its healthful properties don’t stop there. The apigenin that is so abundant in parsley has been found to have remarkable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties as well.
Plus, parsley is a rich source of chlorophyll and fiber and also vitamins A, C, and E, as well as beta-carotene, lutein, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and folate. It also has more vitamin K than kale, with just 2 tablespoons of raw parsley containing 155 percent of the recommended daily amount.
And eating a bit of fresh parsley after your meal will freshen your breath naturally.

So do you have a whole new appreciation for this herb? Will you include parsley in your diet as more than a garnish? The benefits of parsley are far-reaching. And once you learn how to use it, you’ll find it can be pretty easy to enjoy. Sprinkle some on top of this Indian cauliflower rice bowl or this oil-free daal soup.

"CANCER NOT JUST BAD LUCK"

(Susie greaves Comment left 3rd February 2016 16:04:15)
"Very timely article.There are so many implications to the subject. The appalling procrastination about compiling a list of the endocrine disruptors at the European Commission that has held up legislation for more than a decade. See the film of Stephane Horel, in English called Endocrination.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ks5OSVDl00, in which it becomes clear that it is pressure from the chemical industries lobby that is preventing the correct labelling (or banning) of these products. For anyone who wants to understand the process by which industry prevents legislation to protect us against toxic products, read the book by David Michaels "Doubt is their product". Finally, try to see the Canadian film "Pink Ribbon Inc." or read the book by Samantha King "Pink Ribbons, Inc: Breast Cancer and the Politics of Philanthropy" which is an astonishing study of the breast cancer "industry" in which the same people who give you breast cancer, sell you the cure.

I am being slightly facetious here, but please see the film or read the book, and listen to what breast cancer sufferers say about the cancer charities, who are completely uninterested in the cause of cancer but very interested in the next pharmacological money spinner. Finally, it goes without saying that the rate of childhood thyroid cancer in Fukushima prefecture is now 230 times normal. Still, the nuclear industry and the Japanese government claim there is no "provable"link to radiation. http://www.fairewinds.org/nuclear-energy-education/cancer-on-the-rise-in-post-fukushima-japan"

https://www.cancer.org/cancer/nasopharyngeal-cancer/detection-diagnosis-staging/signs-and-symptoms.html

Signs and Symptoms of Nasopharyngeal Cancer
About 3 out of 4 people with NPC complain of a lump or mass in the neck when they first see their doctor. There may be lumps on both sides of the neck towards the back. The lumps are usually not tender or painful. This is caused by the cancer spreading to lymph nodes in the neck, making them larger than normal. Lymph nodes are glands or organs that contain collections of immune system cells that are found throughout the body. Normally, they are smaller than the size of a pea.

Other possible symptoms of NPC include:

Hearing loss, ringing in the ear, or feeling of fullness in the ear (especially on one side only)
Ear infections that keep coming back
Nasal blockage or stuffiness
Nosebleeds
Headache
Facial pain or numbness
Trouble opening the mouth
Blurred or double vision
Ear infections are common in children, but are less common in adults. If you develop an infection in one ear and you have not had ear infections in the past, it is important to have a specialist examine your nasopharynx. This is especially true if you don't have an upper respiratory tract infection (like a “cold”) along with the ear infection.

Many of the symptoms and signs of NPC are more often caused by other, less serious diseases. Still, if you have any of these problems, it's important to see your doctor right away so the cause can be found and treated, if needed.

Your article on NPC made me remember to mention that there is no blood-brain barrier inside the sinus cavity, and for this reason swimming in stagnant ponds is not advisable, as parasites can easily make their way to the brain and other structures in the head.

Thank you...
I tried to get her to stay with me for a few months and was going to try and cure her but she went the route of standard medicine. She did some alternative things at first then the docs warned her to not mix the alternative with the standard and she lost her life.

There was a hospital in Los Angeles several years ago that conducted a study of post-mortem brain tissue samples from several schizophrenia patients, and discovered a particular parasite that a number of them had in common.  It was a parasite that was common to stagnant water.  Not enough to prove causality, but enough to make folks think twice about a dip in the pond.

Coming in late here...

Thanks for that mention of the lack of Blood:Brain Barrier in the sinuses.  Just think of how close they are to the brain!  Also, that is a sad story about your friend, Yowbarb, but we who are interested in wholistic/holistic health and medicine know how difficult it is for mainstream-oriented people to open their eyes to other possibilities.

My dear childhood friend, Patty, recently had breast cancer.  She and I recently re-hooked up via email after many decades apart and have discovered so much in common--probably more now than before, including interest in herbs and holistic modalities.

Her doctor told her she had breast cancer, and she informed him she wanted to try some herbal/alternative things.  Then at her next visit he said "you have three types of cancer, and they are growing very fast, and you have to have chemo and radiation, or they will continue to grow fast and kill you quickcly" or something pretty much like that.  So he did scare her to death, and she did go through with all of it, but I tried to get her to obtain a copy of the pathology report which will spell out in detail the type(s) of cancer(s) by name, and their extent of invasion, if any.  I do not know if she ever did ask, but she never did get a copy. 

My own intuition is that she may, or may not have had "a lot" of cancer, but when he heard she wanted to use herbs first, he went into high gear to scare the crap out of her.  They detail how doctors do this in that Truth About Cancer series on cancer treatments, etc.  Of course, they also show how the urgency that doctors instill in patients is not based on reality, plus when they hear patients want to go holistic, they react in the way we can all imagine.

And am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, as it hits home, knowing Patty all these years.  We climbed trees together!

I feel that is probably true of a lot of people,when you try to help them with alternative methods, and they are considered serious by their doctors, the doctors strongly advise them to not do the alternative methods.  Conversely, many alternative practitioners say to follow docs orders in general, but add the alternative.

Antitumor Effects
The anti-tumor efficacy offered by cranberry juice is attributed to the presence of polyphenolic compounds within the fruit. Studies have suggested that regular consumption of cranberry juice inhibits the development and spread of lung, breast, colon, prostate, and other cancers. Cranberry juice contains a high amount of salicylic acid which can help reduce swelling, prevent blood clots, and eliminate tumors.

Yes, Patty is still alive and a bit more aware now.  It sounds like no matter how hard anyone would have tried, your friend Edie was no doubt convinced that the medical establishment knows what's best and anyone who would use herbs or other methods, must be totally insane.

The door of awareness opens very slowly for some, and for others, it just gets burst open and never closes.  Unfortunately, Patty wants to take all herbs in pill form, or at least it seems that way.  She had watched some of the The Truth About Cancer videos I sent her and saw that part about frankincense essential oil, so she decided to use it.  But instead of buying just the essential oil, she bought some pill or other conconction that contained a bunch of things, one of which was frankincense oil.

But that mixture is not what was helping the patients described in the video.  I don't want to get pushy, but would love to drop the hint that maybe some of those other ingredients might not be the best for helping deal with cancer.  But I'm trying to refrain from unsolicited advice.  But if she asks, I'll have plenty to say.  I certainly wish her well.

Is it lung cancer? This blood test can tell
Published   Thursday 19 April 2018 By Maria Cohut   Fact checked by Jasmin Collier

Some cancers — particularly lung cancer — are often detected incidentally, after unrelated medical exams. In many cases, it is difficult to tell the malign from benign tumors, except by using invasive methods such as a biopsy. However, one blood test that can rule out cancer may be the game-changer that we require.

Recent data indicate that currently, in the United States, around 1.6 million pulmonary nodules per year are detected that require further testing to ascertain whether they are cancerous.

Biopsies are invasive. And, often, healthcare practitioners will advise even more invasive solutions, such as surgery, to remove the nodules and the patient's doubts.

For such sensitive, fragile organs as the lungs, however, an invasive method brings with it a whole set of risks that can potentially make matters worse.

Dr. Gerard Silvestri, of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, led a study to explore a noninvasive method of determining whether lung nodules are benign or malign. He explains why this research is important.

"Think of your lung as a 2-liter bottle of soda, and the nodule as a pea in the center of it," notes Dr. Silvestri. "During a biopsy, for example, the lung could collapse and need a tube to expand it," he explains.

That is why he and a team of researchers have explored the merits of a blood test focusing on the presence of biomarkers that would indicate how likely it is that the detected nodules are cancerous.

"Our goals for this biomarker are to help calculate the risk of cancer, present the patient with options and recommendations, and avoid subjecting patients with benign disease to expensive, unnecessary, and intrusive procedures."

Dr. Gerard Silvestri
The results of their research have now been published in the journal Chest.

Test demonstrates accuracy of 98 percent

Dr. Silvestri and team's research is part of the Pulmonary Nodule Plasma Proteomic Classifier study, which the study authors call "a prospective, multicenter, observational study" that retrospectively evaluates the effectiveness of a specially designed blood test that can evaluate "two [telling] proteins and five clinical risk factors" for lung cancer.

The blood test's purpose is to determine whether patients with lung nodules who have a low or moderate risk of lung cancer are likely to have developed harmless or malign tumors.

The main biomarkers that the test assesses are the proteins LG3BP and C163A, the plasma concentrations of which predicts this type of cancer.

If the test results are negative and the person being tested has a lung cancer chance of under 50 percent, the possibility of cancer is very reduced. In this case, healthcare practitioners can devise an appropriate treatment plan and follow-up routine.

"It serves as a 'rule out' test for those with low to moderate risk," Dr. Silvestri says of the blood test.

"The biomarker is a tool," he continues, "to help calculate the general risk of cancer and present a patient with recommendations and options. It can push people out of indeterminate risk and into low-risk — without having to undergo invasive and potential risky procedures."

The results of the current study indicated that the blood test was 98 percent effective in ruling out the possibility of lung cancer.

For added certainty, however, patients with negative results — and thus with a low likelihood of malign tumors — would still be monitored periodically to make sure that no errors were made.

"A low-risk tumor," Dr. Silvestri goes on to say, "will be followed with serial imaging. After 2 years of [computed tomography] scans being performed periodically and without evidence of growth, we can say it's benign."

For this study, the researchers retrospectively evaluated the data of 685 clinical trial participants of 40 years or older, all of whom presented newly detected lung nodules at baseline.

The specialists suggest that, had the blood test they studied been used to inform patient care, 40 percent fewer invasive procedures would have taken place in the case of people with harmless nodules.

Taking this into account, Dr. Silvestri and colleagues say that the next step from here should be to conduct a "clinical utility study to assess how clinical decision-making and use of invasive procedures are altered with knowledge of the results of [the recently studied] test."

"Anything to provide physicians with more confidence in how they would manage patients would be helpful," concludes Dr. Silvestri.

Yowbarb Note: The wormwood, (Artimisia annua) has some potentially really important uses for people in the coming times. There are some posts about it in the Topic, Disease Outbreaks. For the purposes of this post, I will only post the excerpts about its POSSIBLE ANTI CANCER PROPERTIES.
...
https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/herbs/artemisia-annua

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Do NOT take if:
You are taking antiseizure medications: Artemisia can induce seizures making such medications less effective.

To treat cancer:
Laboratory studies have shown some effect. Human data are lacking.


Mechanism of Action
Artemisinin, the active constituent of A. annua, exerts antimalarial effects by free radicals formed via cleavage of the endoperoxide bond in its structure, which are responsible for eradicating the Plasmodium species (23).

Artemisinin induces apoptosis and cell cycle arrest of Leishmani donovani promastigotes. It has antiproliferative effects on medullary thyroid carcinoma cells (2), and induces apoptosis in a lung cancer cell line by modulating p 38 and calcium signaling (14). In another study, it significantly inhibited cell growth and proliferation, and caused G1 cell-cycle arrest in neuroblastoma cell lines (25). Dihydroartemisinin, a semi-synthetic derivative of artemisinin, demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity by attenuating COX-2 production via downregulation of serine/threonine kinase (AKT) and mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways  (24). Recent findings suggest that dihydroartemisinin-triggered apoptosis in colorectal cells occurs through the reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated mitochondria-dependent pathway (26).

Artemisia annua is an herb traditionally used in Chinese medicine to treat fever, inflammation, and malaria. A compound in artemisia was shown to be effective in treating malaria in a clinical trial. Another case study showed that artemisia was effective in treating chronic bladder infection. Other studies suggest it may be helpful for osteoarthritis.
Artemisia prevented cancer cells from dividing in laboratory studies but clinical trials have not been conducted to support this.

Nurse Jennifer of Veterans for Truth recommends this Ted Talks film on destroying cancer cells with sound waves presented by Dr. Anthony Holland:

Quote
Cancer is vulnerable to sound waves between 100,000 Hz and 300,000 Hz.
~Anthony Holland

More on this topic:

While Dr. Holland in the previous post had described the importance of (1) a specific range of frequency as measured in Hertz and (2) pulsed sound rather than uninterrupted waves...

Christine Gibbons presents yet another Ted Talk which goes a step further and suggests the efficacy of shaping the sound emitters into a cup or concave formation in order to take advantage of the amplification effect (i.e. "histotripsy").

In both demonstrations, cancer tumors are shattered due to the formation of blister-like bubbles on them, which then explode from the pressure of expansion.  The cancer is then cleaned out of the body via natural processes.

Here's the medical device currently under investigation in the U.S. and Canada, for those who may wish to try the allopathic version of sound wave medicine rather than improvising at home with a Rife or other instrument:

It's called the Vortx Rx system.  Note the sound-focusing cannon:

Haven't watched any of the relevant videos re blasting cancer cells with sound, but thinking out loud here, would different types of cancers require slightly different frequencies?  Maybe that's part of the process--determining which is the optimum cancer-cell-killing frequency range for a given cancer.

Good news to see, and interesting that the new-fangled device is probably no better than what Rife had originally devised.

So, if you wanted to use the technique of "one low and one high" frequency on cancer at the 11th harmonic using the frequencies in the above study, here's what that amounts to:

For the base 100,000 Hz, the 11th harmonic root would be 9090.909

For the max 300,000 Hz, the 11th harmonic root would be 27, 272.727

Adding links to play two of the general anti-cancer 11th harmonic frequencies on Youtube while you work:

100,000 Hz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItIOXW9tGO0

9090 Hz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CB3ex1QRwZw

The higher tone will not be in the range of human hearing, while the lower frequency will be audible.  Two different Youtube tabs can be opened to play both simultaneously for the full effect, if desired.  They can be replayed automatically by right-clicking on the film and selecting "Loop" for a longer session.  The audible 9090 Hz film should be played at low volume to protect hearing, while the 100,000 Hz film presumably could be turned up higher (unless your cat or goldfish begin showing signs of distress...).

Sending blessings for deep healing to whomever.  Remember to breathe deeply and send love to yourself while you heal.  You are worthy to be here, and you are worthy to be healed.  :)

I haven't had time to check this out, maybe later, but I have a question:

Since human hearing range is 20 hz to 20,000 hz, would not all devices that are made to produce sounds for humans to hear produce sounds in that range only?

Ultrasonic sound = ultrasound = frequencies below 20 Hz and above 20,000 Hz.

Great teen fiction book in which sub-audible frequency for the purpose of inducing psychological stress is a major theme:

Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators: The Secret of Terror Castle

Any musical instrument can be adapted to play ultrasonic frequencies, simply by lengthening strings or pipes via mathematical proportion for lower frequencies, or by shortening strings or pipes for higher frequencies.

If the frequencies are for healing, I doubt that the human ear needs to actually "hear" it/them, because we have receptors to sound waves in many places besides the ear.  Plus frequencies that are outside our range of hearing can still be received and interpreted by the brain, so my two cents says that the frequencies might be "heard" by our ears, but don't necessarily have to, for healing to occur.

Sound frequency below 20 hz are "infrasound"  Elephants can hear some of that range.

My point was that no audio device that was made to produce sounds for human listening will be capable of producing ultrasound.

Infrasound, however, is another matter because the lower frequencies can be modulated onto frequencies within human hearing range.   That is how the tracks for hypnosis and meditation work.  E.g, 440 hz amplitude modulated at 4 hz, for example.

Some, -or many if not perhaps most - cells, tissues, and organs react to one or more specific frequencies of sonic, EMF, electrical, magnetic, or scalar pulsations.
