Research and developments have advanced our basic understanding of the relatedness between the disciplines like biophysics, functional genomics, biology, metabolomics, psychology, neuroscience, and psychoneuroimmunology. This new knowledge changed the ways of futuristic devices from the basic level of biological processes to a dynamic systems or a new “biofield” level. These recent advances in technologies have also shown that intention, stress, emotional states, and other psychosocial factors can significantly affect health outcomes and biological functions. Cellular, molecular, and organismic regulation and function are thus interwoven with and can also be influenced by cognition, emotion, and psychosocial factors, indicating the existence of a low-energy system of interactions (Biofield) connecting these activities.Biofield interactions may organize spatio-temporal processes of biological system across hierarchical gross and subtle levels: from the atomic, subatomic, cellular, molecular, and organismic to the cosmic and interpersonal levels. These interactions can be influenced by a many biological pathways, including cellular, biochemical, and neurological processes related to correlated quantum information flow and electromagnetism.
Biofield devices represent physical instruments that can be most clearly known from a biofield paradigm viewpoint, and a variety of devices have been developed and are being developed to manipulate or measure biofield interactions. There are two types of devices, diagnostic devices (to measure properties of biofield) and therapeutic devices (to manipulate interactions of biofield). The studies and the development of biofield devices are in a very early stage of development, and a lot of effort and research is required to determine clinical efficacy. To elucidate the mechanisms of action of these devices mentioned here many groups are doing connecting the basic things to the modern technology. Some type of biofield devices work through well known mechanisms and are already used in various clinical settings: for example, electrocardiography (ECG) and electroencephalography (EEG)-based heart rate variability (HRV). Many other devices function through novel or incompletely understood mechanisms. However, all of these biofield devices function through the informational content of biological processes.
Electromagnetic Fields Usage: Light
One line of research that is encouraging and has focused a good amount of information on the biofield activity is the biophoton emission (BE) study. It is also called ultra-weak photon emission. Biophoton emission is the spontaneous emission of light which emanates from humans including all living organisms. Several interesting studies have reported inter-cellular Biophoton emission signaling, and it was also suggested that such type of signaling by biophotons could possibly explain multiple regulatory functions including biophoton-regulation of neurotransmitter release, cellular orientation detection, enhanced seed germination, and leukocyte respiratory activity. It was suggested that Biophoton emission detection maybe useful as a research tool and medical diagnostic approach.
Many photo therapies utilize visible light to treat vitamin D deficiency, seasonal affective disorders, and a variety of skin conditions. And also the human body exhibits sensitivity to outside light exposure. Infrared light has been successfully used therapeutically for bone and wound repair. Laser therapy a form of phototherapy also has a wide variety of clinical applications. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT), has been extensively studied and acts without ablating tissue. Many studied support the efficacy of LLLT for multiple pathologies including tendinopathy, skeletal muscle repair, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, neck pain, traumatic brain injury, and chronic joint disorders. Nonthermal LLLT seems to involve cytochrome c oxidase a cell signalling molecule as the photoacceptor.
