The Tremendous Benefits Of Radio Frequency Medicine And Electrotherapy In Curing Drug Addiction - Is It Any Wonder Why The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) , National Institutes Of Health (NIH) And FDA Have Intentionally Ignored This Technology In The Interests Of Protecting The Obscene Profits Of The Global Pharmaceutical Industry?
"Methamphetamine was synthesized by a middle-aged, respectable Japanese chemist named Nagai Nagayoshi in 1893.
A member of the Meiji Japanese elite, Nagayoshi devoted much of his energy to the chemical analysis of traditional Japanese and Chinese medicines using the tools of Western science. In 1885, Nagai isolated the stimulant ephedrine from Ephedra sinica, a plant long used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine.
The year before, in July 1884, Sigmund Freud had published his widely-read encomium to the wonders of cocaine, Über Coca. Cocaine was radically more potent than coca leaves, and chemists the world over were on the lookout for other potential wonder drugs. It's likely that Nagai hoped to work the same magic with ephedra—and in many ways he did. Ephedrine is a mild stimulant, notable nowadays as an ingredient in shady weight-loss supplements and as one of the few drugs permitted to Mormons.
But in 1893, Nagai blazed a chemical trail that would live in infamy: he used ephedrine to synthesize meth . . . In 1919, a younger protégé of Nagai named Akira Ogata discovered a new method of synthesizing the crystalline form of the new stimulant, giving the world crystal meth.
It wasn't until World War II, however, that meth became widespread as a handy tool for keeping tank and bomber crews awake. By 1942, Adolf Hitler was receiving regular IV injections of meth from his physician, Theodor Morell. Two years later the American pharmaceutical company Abbott Laboratories won FDA approval for meth as a prescription treatment for a host of ills ranging from alcoholism to weight gain."

Editor's Note: Given the illicit drug plague that has been prevalent in the United States since the CIA first unleashed LSD on the U.S. educational system in the 1960s - leaving a trail of devastation in its wake by adversely affecting, and in a myriad of cases, destroying the lives of millions of American youth - this scourge has only continued to grow with the introduction of new illicit drugs, and completely unacceptable treatments for enabling those who become addicted to these drugs, to be able to free themselves from these addictions.
One of the most dangerous and difficult drug addictions to treat in America today, is related to crystal meth. Not only is this drug inexpensive to produce, it is also readily available, and offers a euphoric high that is extremely addictive to many of its first time users - the majority of whom just happen to be teenagers and young adults.
By the midst of the 1990s, crystal meth was at its most potent, and the number of people becoming addicted to this powerful drug doubled during this time. The situation has persisted ever since, in a game of cat and mouse, where crystal meth lab's continue to outsmart law enforcement, by taking advantage of FDA laws in different U.S. States, in order to gain access to the primary component in this drug (pseudoephedrine), while the FDA continues to refuse to mandate that pseudoephedrine be regulated through the use of prescription only access, on a nationwide basis; the only way that crystal meth use can be dramatically curbed.
Of course, the FDA is in league with the pharmaceutical industry, which does not want to lose billions of dollars in sales of this product each year; much of which ends up in the hands of illegal crystal meth labs.
Given that there appears to be no end in sight to the expansion of crystal meth production, which is being sold to an ever growing number of meth abusers (currently the number of of crystal meth users in the United States is more than that of heroine and cocaine combined), the only solution is to not ever try this drug.
However, this is completely unrealistic, so the next best solution is to make it easier for the crystal meth user (and for that matter anyone who is addicted to drugs) to be able to find a treatment method which is curative.
As such, it is this author's opinion, that given the success of energy medicine in treating many different types of drug addictions - and the mainstream medical community's refusal to accept such "unorthodox" treatment protocols - that those who are afflicted (or their loved ones and caregivers), must seriously consider electrotherapy as a legitimate and far superior alternative treatment protocol, to the largely inadequate treatment methods which are presently being prescribed to combat drug addiction in the United States.
Those which have historically had an extremely high rate of failure.
Moreover, while the American people continue to ask themselves why this drug culture has been able to not only persist, but to also successfully grow exponentially over the past half century (in spite of programs like "The Partnership For A Drug Free America"), the answer, as unpleasant as it is, is that the illicit manufacture and sale of drugs to a ready made market (America's youth), has been used to fuel the black budgets of agencies like the CIA and NSA for many decades.
Even if they are obtaining these budgets through their covert support of international drug cartels.
Furthermore, given their dependency on these ever increasing black budgets to finance programs which they would never want the American people to learn of (like the second generation of MK-Ultra mind control research which is now conducted via the EMF spectrum), these organizations are certainly not going to abandon this stream of revenue simply because the drug trade is destroying the lives of millions of American children.
The unfortunate fact of the matter is that by allowing for the creation of a very substantial youth oriented drug culture in America, another very lucrative business has been spawned in the way of expensive drug treatment facilities that far too often fail to rehabilitate their patients.
According to the *Colorado Meth Project, each year more than $23 billion dollars is spent in treating meth amphetamine addiction in the United States alone. Given this stunning figure, one can only imagine what the cost is for treating the total number of people who seek help in this country annually for drug addiction?
If organizations like the CIA and NSA are going to continue to rely on black budgets in order to finance their illegal black operations, then the American people must be prepared to find an effective solution for treating the enormous numbers of teenagers and young adults who become addicted to these dangerous and all too often life threatening drugs each year.
And this means a treatment which is both curative and as painless as possible, since it is the devastating symptoms of withdrawal which make successful treatment nearly impossible in so many of these cases of addiction.
* The following has been reprinted from Dr. Robert Becker's excellent book: "CROSS CURRENTS - The Promise of Electromedicine The Perils of Electropollution."
The idea that electrical stimulation to the head could be beneficial in the treatment of drug addiction was derived primarily from the work of Dr. Margaret Patterson, a British surgeon. About fifteen years ago she came to my laboratory with an interesting story.
While she was completing her surgical training at a British hospital in Hong Kong, a Chinese surgeon had shown her that auricular acupuncture (a technique that uses points on the patient's ear) could be used in place of the usual large doses of narcotics to prevent withdrawal syndrome in postoperative drug addicts.
This technique so impressed Dr. Patterson that she began to use it on her patients there. She then returned to England, where she built a busy surgical practice. Later, with the increase of drug addiction in England, Dr. Patterson began using postoperative acupuncture on those cases.
Her fame spread, and patients began to consult her primarily for acupuncture treatment of drug addiction.
When she learned of the Chinese use of electrical stimulation to enhance the effect of acupuncture, Dr. Patterson adopted that technique, using pulsed DC. However, she encountered problems.
While the clinical results were better, there was considerable local irritation from the current, and it was difficult to keep the needles in place in the ear. Nevertheless, she believed that this was a useful treatment for drug addiction and that it was better than any other, and she began seeking a method that would obviate these difficulties.
When she visited my laboratory, Dr. Patterson told me of these problems and asked if I could suggest a way to improve the technique. My sole contribution was to recommend that she stop using needle electrodes and instead use a flat, surface electrode of at least one square centimeter in size, applied to the skin just behind the ear.
I told her I thought that only about I percent of the total current she was applying to the needle electrodes actually traversed the brain, but that this appeared to be enough to do the job.
It seemed to me that the effects of her electrical acupuncture treatment were probably not mediated by the acupuncture system at all but were somehow due to the electrical current's acting directly on the brain.
I suggested that she explore various frequencies to determine whether any were more effective than others, and also whether any could be related to addiction to a specific drug.
She followed this advice, and since then we have kept in close contact. A few years ago I visited England and examined a number of Dr. Patterson's patients.
What I found was amazing. Even severely addicted patients could completely stop all drugs as soon as the electrodes were applied, and they showed no sign of withdrawal symptoms.
However, I was most impressed by the fact that every patient reported having experienced a major change in personality during the six-week treatment: all of them believed that during the treatment time they had gone from being addictive to non addictive personality types.
In animal experiments, Dr. Patterson had found that during electrical treatment the amount of the brain's endorphins (a natural, morephinelike substance produced by the brain) increases measurably.
While this may explain some of the immediate results, it cannot be the only answer, because the majority of her patients require only one six-week treatment and remain drug-free thereafter. It seems likely that there is some long-term effect that persists after treatment is stopped.
There are several interesting aspects to this technique. First, it seems that very low levels of pulsed electrical current have major effects upon the highest functions of the brain. The personality alteration that follows the treatment is a most significant observation that urgently requires further study.
Second, from all accounts this treatment is so superior to others for drug addiction that it certainly deserves a large-scale scientific study to determine its actual clinical utility.
From 1944 to 1950, when I worked at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, one of the largest and busiest hospitals in the United States, I saw very few drug addicts, despite the fact that this was a time of great social and economic stress.
I need not indicate the seriousness of the drug problem today. Yet, to the best of my knowledge, not one study has been done to address the question of the cause of the increased demand for addictive drugs.
Instead, we have viewed the problem as being an increased supply of illicit drugs.
Unlike other treatment methods, Dr. Patterson's seems capable of actually decreasing the demand for the drugs. It has been used with great success in the treatment of prominent British rock stars, but it has not yet been approved for the treatment of the average citizen. Dr. Patterson's discussions with NIH and the FDA in this country have, so far, been unfruitful.
While I generally take the position that all electromagnetic therapy has a dark side and should be used with great caution, I also believe in risk/benefit analysis.
If the condition for which the treatment is to be employed is life-threatening, if no other therapies have the same level of effectiveness, and if the risks of producing undesirable side effects are less than those of no treatment at all, then the use of electromagnetic therapy is justified.
The use of Dr. Patterson's treatment for severe drug addiction would seem to be justified by this risk/benefit ratio concept. At the least, a large-scale clinical study should be undertaken to either prove or disprove her observations.
A large number of addicts are currently being treated, at a high cost, by a variety of people who are using different types of TENS units (or other devices, including some that produce pulsing magnetic fields) applied to the head. Not only is this unscientific, but it is also dangerous.
There is an even darker side to this situation. If we can treat drug addiction by passing an electrical current through the head or exposing the head to a strong, pulsing magnetic field, then we should be able to mimic the effects of certain illicit drugs, such as psychedelics or opiates, using the same technique.
This idea has in fact become common, and it has been used in a technique called, in the drug culture, "wire-heading."
The plans for these kinds of devices circulate freely, and any electronics store can provide the materials to construct a simple, but powerful, pulse generator for this purpose. The practice is not strictly illegal, and I doubt that it can be controlled by any legal fashion. It is, however, decidedly dangerous.
A year or so ago, I received a call from a gentleman who works in the music industry, and who had worked with a young man who had formerly been a serious drug addict. The two had discussed the possibility of using electronic devices to mimic drug effects. The former addict believed that the use of such devices would be safe because they would not produce a dependency response.
Music studios use multitrack magnetic tape for recordings. In order for the tape to be reused, it must be degaussed - that is, placed in the field of a powerful electromagnetic oscillating at 60Hz - to erase the prior recording.
The young man decided to test his theory, and he applied degaussing coils to each side of his head. Over the next hour he became increasingly psychologically disturbed and had to be hospitalized that evening. He was not able to return to work for several months, and by that time he had lost all memory of the incident.
I do not know if a similar reaction would occur in a subject who had not previously been seriously addicted, but I do not recommend anyone's doing this, or any related experimentation.
