... Its spectral range of frequencies (colors) extends from 200-800 nanometers from UV-C and UV-A through the completely visible range into the infrared part of spectrum. [2]. ...
... Alexander G. Gurwitsch discovered Biophotons in 1922. Biological detectors developed technically from 1920s to 1960s, to detect ultra-weak cell radiation, by Russian scientists, and through 1970s German biophysicist Popp establish an international institute to carry out systematic experimental investigation on this new biological phenomenon [2]. ...
... The experimental findings showed that electromagnetic field body in living organism appears as a highly complex and self-tunable resonating system oscillating fields that coupled nonlinearly by their phase relations, as an extremely sensitive and highly effective antennae system, able to tune itself according to the need to aboard range of frequencies [2]. The radiation of electromagnetic wave is ...

This is an inductive article, aims to suggest number of hypothesis; as an initial answer, susceptible to examination, from logic prefaces, about human biofield energy body, with its relationship with psychical ability (psi), or sixth sense experiences. Suggested hypothesis is: H1: Every existence vibrates in universe. H2: Each vibrate conduct wave field. H3: Each existence has wave print according to dynamic interactions among its components. H4: Our mind feels such wave signature; (wave print) in implicit way (unconsciously), and react with; which means perceive it personally; by connecting it with similar present and past experiences, and affect it as well, such reaction suggested as: conscious bio-communication".
... The UPE possesses a spectral range varying from 200 to 800 nm with fragile intensity (few to hundreds of photons per cm 2 ) (Yang et al., 2017). It is interesting to note that such intensity of radiation is equivalent to look at candlelight with naked eyes from a distance of nearly 24 km (Bischof, 2005), which elucidates the difficulty of capturing these signals. ...
... Therefore, they remain a suitable choice for UPE detection. After PMT development in the 1950s, detection of this light achieved notable improvement, and measurements became accurate (Bischof, 2005;Rahnama et al., 2011). At this stage, scientists discovered that UPE was also emitted in the Ultra-weak photon emission for food quality and safety assessment et al., 2019). ...

A new aspect covering interactions between cells and their surroundings via electromagnetic waves was introduced by applying ultra-weak photon emission (UPE). The UPE originates from the electronically excited species resulting from oxidative metabolic and oxidative stresses associated with the reactive oxygen species (ROS). The ROS plays a critical role in the quality of foods, and their determination is of extreme importance. As they can achieve electronically excited states, they emit UPE. Hence, they can be effectively monitored by specific instruments such as a photomultiplier tube (PMT) and charged-coupled devices (CCD). The current review is devoted to providing an overview of the quality of food products by the aid of UPE via evaluation of the correlations between UPE and food quality indices. In this regard, the UPE can be utilized in food quality as a real-time, non-invasive, and non-destructive technique without complex instruments. However, the implementation of the UPE method for food quality evaluation needs further investigations while this technique can improve the quality of food products
... These electromagnetic radiations span from the ULF range of less than 30 Hz, up through the visible light spectrum, and continue past the ultraviolet range up to approximately 1015 Hz. Although not usually visible to the naked eye, the light can be reliably measured using photomultipliers (Bischof, 2005;Popp, Gu, & Li, 1994). ...

The lack of an identified mechanism of action for the placebo response contributes to its perception as clinically unimportant in Western medicine and minimizes its value as a contributing factor to the effectiveness of both conventional and alternative medical treatments. The therapeutic ritual is one of the principle contributors to the placebo response. Two key elements predicting salutogenic outcomes in both the placebo response and therapeutic ritual are patient meaning making and the patient/healer relationship. A detailed examination of human biofield dynamics shows its role in storing, communicating, and regulating the flow of information associated with healing in Western and non-Western medical models. The human biofield is particularly responsive to psychospiritual inputs, which may provide a model explaining the mechanism of action for these otherwise anomalous healing responses. Transpersonal studies provide methodological tools suitable to addressing the multiple paradigms found to be effective within the placebo response and therapeutic rituals, leading to the possible development of a transpersonal medicine.
... There is an important mechanism by which cytokines may cause neurocognitive impairments by dramatically increasing (and are increased by) reactive oxygen species (ROS) (46,47). ROS are involved in countless metabolic processes that are essential for life, including adenosine triphosphate production, response to pathogens, cellular homeostasis and cell signaling (48)(49)(50). ROS have also been postulated by many to be causally involved in chemo brain (38,51). Anthracyclines like doxorubicin have been shown to result in the production of extremely high levels of ROS (37,38,52). ...

The majority of patients receiving chemotherapy experience post-chemotherapy cognitive impairment, sometimes referred to as "chemo brain" or "chemo fog." The cognitive impairment associated with this syndrome can be severe, and can sometimes last for many years after therapy discontinuation. Despite extensive investigations, its etiology is unknown. We argue that chemo brain results from damage to tubulin within microtubules. This damage can occur directly from tubulin inhibitors such as taxanes, epothilones or vinca alkaloids. Other chemotherapies stimulate increased mitochondrial activity and biophoton release. This results in abnormal tryptophan metabolism and excess production of neurotoxic kynurenines, which, in turn, damage microtubules.
... Illness is explained biophysically by the ideas of Theodor Förster [12] and Fritz-Albert Popp [13,14]. Theodor Förster wrote that each chemical reaction works on a higher energetic level. ...

Homeopathy, a holistic therapy, is believed to cure only acute symptoms of a beginning illness according to the Laws of Similars; but not deep, bleeding, septic wounds. The homeopaths refuse to heal according to special medical indications. Based on Lenger’s detection of magnetic photons in homeopathic remedies a biochemical and biophysical model of homeopathic healing was developed Biochemical, pathological pathways can be treated by their highly potentized substrates and inhibitors. Three groups of patients with moderate, severe and septic wounds had been successfully treated with the suitable remedies depending on the biochemical pathological state.
... Since nuclei are larger than the electron clouds, the vibrational behavior is different from the aforementioned electronic contribution. Such effects are termed molecular polarization (Bischof, 2005). ...

BACKGROUND: Cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide. The application of biophotonics for diagnosing precancerous lesions is a major breakthrough in oncology and is associated with the expression of clastogenic bio-markers, such as reactive oxygen species (ROS), namely, superoxide anion radicals, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radicals, and lipid peroxidation products. These ROS are the major sources of ultra-weak biophotons emission; in addition, biophotons are emitted from other biomolecules, which are not associated with ROS. The precancerous phase is diagnosed on the basis of biophoton emission from biomarkers. The type of biophotons emitted depends on the structure of the clastogenic ROS. METHODS: ROS-based emission of ultra-weak photons can be detected using charge coupled device (CCD) cameras and photomultiplier tubes. Furthermore, spectroscopic and microscopic analysis can yield more advanced and definite results. RESULTS: The frequency and intensity of biophoton emission associated with each ROS provides information regarding the precancerous phase. Previous have attempted to show an association between precancerous growth and biophoton emission; however, their results were not conclusive. In this review, we have addressed multiple aspects of the molecular environment, especially light- matter interactions, to derive a successful theoretical relationship which may have the ability to diaganose the tumor at precancerous stage and to give the solutions of previous failures. This can be a major quantum leap toward precancerous diagnosis therapy. CONCLUSION: Biophotonics provides an advanced framework, for easily diagnosing cancer at its preliminary stage. The relationship between biophotons, clastogenic factors, and biochemical reactions in the cellular microenvironment can be understood successfully. The advancement in precancerous diagnosis will improve human health worldwide. The versatility of biophotonics can be used further for novel applications in biology, biochemistry, chemistry and social fields.

Widespread in nature ability of biological objects to emit photons (biophotons) made it possible to create devices for non-invasive and continuous monitoring of the metabolism of organs and tissues, used as a powerful clinical diagnostic tool, as well as for visualisation and spatio-temporal analysis of functioning organs and, in particular, the brain. Numerous experimental data indicating the participation of biophotons in the processes of inter- and intracellular communication served as a theoretical basis for the medical use of low-intensity light therapy for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases, including delayed wound healing, pain in arthritis, and acute stroke.

El bienestar es un tema de gran relevancia por ser un asunto humano de importancia central para la calidad de vida de las personas. Abarca muy diversas dimensiones de la vida humana que, sumadas, logran brindar bienestar integral a todo individuo; entre ellas podemos ubicar la dimensión afectiva que, es posible considerarla incluida en diversos conceptos acuñados desde diferentes ámbitos de estudio –como el denominado “bienestar mental” (ámbito de la medicina), el “bienestar subjetivo” (ámbito de la sociología) o el “bienestar psicológico” (ámbito de la psicología). La afectividad conjunta emociones, sentimientos y pasiones de una persona. Se trata de constructos que pertenecen a la naturaleza innata del ser humano, que son fundamentales; al ser parte necesaria e inseparable de la cognición que influye en la percepción, en el aprendizaje, la salud, la comunicación y aun en la toma de decisiones –de forma racional–. Sin embargo, por mucho tiempo y todavía en la actualidad, no se le ha dado toda la importancia que tiene. En nuestro mundo contemporáneo, solamente hasta poco antes del final del siglo XX, al fin se ha empezado a tomar conciencia de que nuestro estado emocional determina cómo vivimos y, por lo tanto, nuestro bienestar. En este marco, nace este libro con el objetivo de plantear la presencia y relevancia de la dimensión afectiva para fomentar bienestar integral en las personas a través del diseño. El texto surge del trabajo permanente de reflexión y discusión de la Red Académica de Diseño y Emociones (RADE) integrada por académicos que, desde diversas instituciones a nivel superior ubicadas alrededor del mundo, desarrollamos nuestra labor de investigación precisamente en relación con el tema “diseño y emoción”. El presente libro representa el tercer texto de la RADE, convocado en esta ocasión por la inquietud académica de llevar a cabo una exploración-reflexión sobre cuáles pueden ser las aportaciones de la perspectiva emocional del diseño para fomentar y contribuir al bienestar de las personas a largo plazo, y de manera significativa para los individuos y la sociedad. Así, se pretende aportar a la discusión teórica que guía la actividad proyectual en la disciplina del Diseño.

Besides general problems, which might be regarded as philosophical, the anomalies of the physicalistic world view have served as the source of inspiration. Several poorly understood phenomena have played a central role in the "Poiroting-like" process leading to the development of TGD based views about quantum biology. Mention only the effects of ELF em fields on vertebrate brain, biophotons, water memory, Pollack effect, and Comorosan effect. The notion of syntropy by Fantappie, which challenges the belief that the arrow of time is not always the same in living systems, has been also inspiring. In this article I will discuss the TGD based vision and the above listed phenomena, which are often forgotten. I will also compare the TGD based view with the proposed interpretation of morphogenetic field as em field generated by DNA and realizing genetic code discussed in the articles of Savelev et al, and compare it with the TGD based models of genetic code realized in terms of dark nucleons and dark photons. The findings described in these articles and in the articles of Yolene Thomas about water memory also provide new tests for the TGD based view. As always, this kind of process led to some new ideas and insights.
