One of the most basic aspect of our energy anatomy is our Biofield which is assessed during Energy Medicine treatments. The emerging scientific field of Energy Medicine continues to add to the great body of work and research in order to find better remedies for humanity.

As Dr. Dora Kunz observed, “when the vital field is healthy, there is within it a natural autonomous rhythm,” and that’ “each organ in the body has its corresponding energetic rhythm in the etheric field.” During healing sessions, practitioners discover more about the fascinating container in which our biology is held. What we call in our practice ‘biofields’, Dr. Harold Saxon Burr called ‘L-fields’.

Field of Life

Researcher Dr. Harold Saxton Burr revealed in his studies that all living things-from men to mice, from trees to seeds-are molded and controlled by ‘electro-dynamic fields’, which can be measured and mapped with standard modern voltmeters.

These ‘fields of life,’ or L-fields, are the basic blueprints of all life on this planet. In his book, Blueprint for Immortality, Dr. Harold Saxton Burr describes his work and discoveries which breaks through the modern idea of the body as a machine.

Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, Ph.D., was E. K. Hunt Professor Emeritus, Anatomy at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Burr was a member of the faculty of medicine for over forty-three years. From 1916 to the late 1950’s, he published, either alone or with others, more than ninety-three scientific papers.

In 1932 his observations of neuro-cellular proliferation in the amblystoma led him to propose “An Electro-Dynamic Theory of Development” for which he is now most widely remembered.

Burr’s work describes an invisible, subtle field of energy that he refers to ‘L-fields’; a field of subtle energy that surrounds all beings, all life, is much like a jelly-mold which shapes us into a particular form. Just as a jelly-mold can be damaged, so can our energetic field, causing us to lose our original shape, and fall victim to illnesses and imbalances.

“The Universe in which we find ourselves and from which we can not be separated is a place of Law and Order. It is not an accident, nor chaos. It is organized and maintained by an Electro-dynamic field capable of determining the position and movement of all charged particles. For nearly half a century, the logical consequences of this theory have been subjected to rigorously controlled conditions and met with no contradictions.”

Dr. Burr discovered that all living things – from men to mice, from trees to seeds – are molded and controlled by electro-dynamic fields, which could be measured and mapped with standard voltmeters. These L-fields are the basic blueprints of all life on this planet; ‘biofields’, as we now call them in Energy Medicine.

Dr. Burr believed that, since measurements of L-field voltages can reveal physical and mental conditions, doctors should be able to use them to diagnose illness before symptoms develop, and so would have a better chance of successful treatment. His ideas are indeed becoming a part of diagnosis of human diseases.

“Electro-dynamic fields are invisible and intangible; and it is hard to visualize them. But a crude analogy may help to show what the fields of life – L-fields for short – do and why they are so important.”

Magnetic Force Fields

“Most people who have taken high school science will remember that if iron filings are scattered on a card held over a magnet, they will arrange themselves in the pattern of the ‘lines of force’ of the magnet’s field. And if the filings are thrown away and fresh ones scattered on the card, the new filings will assume the same pattern as the old.”

“Something like this happens in the human body. Its molecules and cells are constantly being torn apart and rebuilt with fresh material from the food we eat. But, thanks to the controlling L-fields, the new molecules and cells are rebuilt as before and arrange themselves in the same pattern as the old ones.”

“Until modern instruments revealed the existence of the controlling L-fields, biologists were at a loss to explain how our bodies ‘keep in shape’ through ceaseless metabolism and changes of material. Now the mystery has been solved: the electro-dynamic field of the body serves as a matrix or mould which preserves the ‘shape’ or arrangement of any material poured into it, however often the material may be changed.”

“When a cook looks at a jelly mould, she knows the shape of the jelly she will turn out of it. In much the same way, inspection with instruments of an L-field in its initial stage can reveal the future ‘shape’ or arrangement of the materials it will mould. When the L-field in a frog’s egg, for instance, is examined electrically, it is possible to show the future location of the frog’s nervous system because the frog’s L-field is the matrix which will determine the form which will develop from the egg.”

“To return to the cook, when she uses a battered mould, she expects to find some dents or bulges in the jelly. Similarly, a ‘battered’ L-field – that is, one with abnormal voltage patterns – can give a warning of something ‘out of shape’ in the body, sometimes in advance of actual symptoms.”

“For example, malignancy in the ovary has been revealed by L-field measurements before any clinical sign could be observed. Such measurements, therefore, could help doctors to detect cancer early, when there is a better chance of treating it successfully.”

Dr. Louis Langman of New York University and Bellevue Hospital Gynecological Service examined over 1000 patients using electro-metric measurements of the L-field. Dr. Langman and his assistants examined patients who were on the wards of the hospital and were subject to a variety of syndromes.

They included fibromas, as well as the usual run of pathological events in the generative tract of these women. In those that showed a marked change in the voltage gradient between the cervix and the ventral abdominal wall, careful watch was kept through subsequent laparotomy.

“There were a hundred and two cases where there was a significant shift in the voltage gradient, suggesting malignancy. Surgical confirmation was found in ninety-five of the one hundred and two cases. The actual position of the malignancy varied all the way from the fundus, to the tubes and to the ovarian tissue itself. We had an astonishingly high percentage of successful identification of malignancy in the generative tract, confirmed by biopsy.”

“In the growth and development of every living system there is obviously some kind of control of the processes. As a distinguished zoologist once said, ‘The growth and development of any living system would appear to be controlled by someone sitting “on the organism” and directing its whole living process.’ The L-Field theory suggested that it should be possible to determine the polarity and direction of the flow of energy transformations in the living system. The organism, as a whole, depends on such directives for its continued existence; so also does atypical growth.”

Dr. Burr decided to examine the electrical properties of cancer-susceptible mice to determine if the voltage measurements would change during the initiation and growth of cancer tissue.

“The results of the experiment were surprisingly consistent. Twenty-four to twenty-eight hours after the implantation, changes were observed in the voltage gradients. This differential increased steadily and quite smoothly to reach a maximum of approximately five millivolts on or about the eleventh day. In the slow-growing tumors potential differences began to emerge on the third or fourth day, but reached their maximum of approximately three millivolts on the tenth or eleventh day.” In his control animals there were no significant fluctuations in voltage. “It is clear from these findings that the crest of atypical growth in the host organism produced measurable and reproducible electro-metric correlates.”

“We had reason to believe that the electro-dynamic field could serve as a signpost for a variety of conditions because our experiments had confirmed our basic assumption. This was that the organism possesses a field as a whole which embraces subsidiary or local fields, representing the organism’s component parts. We assumed, then, that variations in the subsidiary fields would be reflected in variations in the flow of energy in the whole system – as we had found in ovulation and malignancy. We decided, therefore, to look for further practical consequences of the theory.”

“We soon found a definite relationship between nerve and tissue in the form of a potential difference, which can be used in quantitative tests of nerve injury. The potentials were not affected by vascular and sweating responses.”

Dr. Burr measured changes taking place in the L-field as wounds would be healing. During all phases of the healing process, gradient measurements could be made to show the body initiating various functions pertaining to wound healing.

All living things are contained within electro-dynamic fields that radiate from our Core Star.  Through the research of Dr. Burr, he scientifically confirmed that biofields, L-fields, function to form the “blueprint” for the physical form of living things!
