At an Energy Medicine conference I spoke at, I met Dr. Bill Bengston, a professor at St. Joseph’s College in New York City.
Dr. Bengston has conducted a number of provocative laboratory experiments on energy healing using mice. With animal subjects, unlike humans, the researcher doesn’t have to control for the placebo effect, which predisposes human beings to recover due to their beliefs.
Dr. Bengston injected mice with a cancer-causing substance which produced a 100% fatality rate within 28 days. Then he gave them hands-on healing. The results were astonishing: The mice recovered. The tumors turned black and imploded, and the mice lived a normal life span.
You can read about the study in his book The Energy Cure.
Yet there’s a lot more to the story. Dr. Bengston was recently interviewed by Dr. Dean Radin, chief scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences, which partnered in an EFT study as well.
Click here for a transcript of the interview in which Dr. Bengston shares the origin of these energy healing insights in the pioneering work of Bernard Grad at McGill University in the 1970s, which I describe in my book Soul Medicine (co-authored with Harvard-trained neurosurgeon Norm Shealy, MD, PhD).
Dawson Church, PhD, is an award-winning science writer with three best-selling books to his credit. The Genie in Your Genes was the first book to demonstrate that emotions drive gene expression. Mind to Matter showed that the brain creates much of what we think of as “objective reality.” Bliss Brain demonstrates that peak mental states rapidly remodel the brain for happiness. Dawson has conducted dozens of clinical trials, and founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH) to promote groundbreaking new treatments. Dawson shares how to apply these health and performance breakthroughs through EFT Universe.
