You probably know that food, water, sunlight, and oxygen are required for life, but there is a fifth element of health that is equally vital and often overlooked: The Earth’s magnetic field and its corresponding PEMFs (pulsed electromagnetic fields). The two main components of Earth’s PEMFs, the Schumann and Geomagnetic frequencies, are so essential that NASA and the Russian space program equip their spacecrafts with devices that replicate these frequencies. These frequencies are absolutely necessary for the human body’s circadian rhythms, energy production, and even keeping the body free from pain. But there is a big problem on planet earth right now, rather, a twofold problem, as to why we are no longer getting these life-nurturing energies of the earth. In this book we’ll explore the current problem and how the new science of PEMF therapy (a branch of energy medicine), based on modern quantum field theory, is the solution to this problem, with the many benefits listed below:
• eliminate pain and inflammation naturally
• get deep, rejuvenating sleep
• increase your energy and vitality
• feel younger, stronger, and more flexible
• keep your bones strong and healthy
• help your body with healing and regeneration
• improve circulation and heart health
• plus many more benefits

The 5 Essential Elements of Life
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.
The greatest mystery is that of existence itself; that the universe and life within it exists - that there is something at all, rather than nothing. In the midst of this spiraling growth of our universe that began at speeds faster than light, a "Goldilocks" planet (Earth) evolved with conditions and elements that are not too hot and not too cold, but "just right" for life. Life has been a hero's journey of 13.77 billion years, a long pilgrimage on the razor-like thin path of eternity from the ineffable big bang, to the present moment where we can stand together and gaze at the night sky in awe and wonderment.
Stargazing connects us to this vastness we call our universe, but as many stars that seemingly pop out on a clear night we are only seeing roughly 10,000 of them with our naked eye. Our galaxy alone contains some 300 billion stars! On top of that, our nearest galaxy Andromeda is much larger then ours and yet appears as only a small fuzzy patch on a dark night sky. Also, leading cosmologists estimate there are AT LEAST 100 billion galaxies in the universe. Think about that!
This book is an amazing journey through the cosmic body of the universe and onto the body of our planet earth (or Gaia), and then to the body of man and his 100 trillion cells. This book is an exploration into the elements needed for life. What man needs to create, maintain and sustain an ever-increasing level of health and energy. Health is Life and Life is Health. There is nothing more auspicious to our sojourn here on earth than to live in a body full of health, married to a mind and spirit open to all of its incredible wonders.
Modern physics is now shedding light on the great serendipity of life and the conditions needed to create it. The great mystery that modern physics puts in front of us, is the precise balance that all the forces and elements strike for the universe, our galaxy, our solar system, our planet and its over 7 billion humans and uncountable other life forms to exist and be alive. Before we dive into the essential elements needed for the health of our body, lets take a brief journey into the amazing circumstances that were needed for life in the universe to exist at all. The purpose of this is to expand your mind while opening up your imagination to the world and universe we live in with a greater sense of appreciation and wonder.
Our Bubble Universe is "Tuned" for Life to Exist
Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man's desire to understand.
According to Stephen Hawking, M-Theory (the source of all prevailing versions of string theory) allows for some 10500 possible universes as different permutations in the fundamental constants. Whether that is correct or not, modern cosmological evidence is already hinting that there are adjacent universes to ours corroborating the idea that our universe is only one of many within a grand Multiverse (collection of all universes). However, our universe is not just an average face in the crowd. It's a very special anomaly that is both geared for sustainable growth and "dialed in" for the possibility of life.
According to modern physics, there are 4 forces (gravity, electromagnetism, the weak force and the strong nuclear force) and 12 fundamental particles (the various quarks and leptons). If the strength of these forces (called the coupling constants) or the mass of the particles were off by just a little, life would not be possible.
For example, if the strong nuclear force was changed by just .5%, or the electromagnetic force was off by 4%, the fusion process needed for carbon and oxygen (our body is 65% oxygen by weight and 18% carbon) would not occur in stars and life, as we know it would not exist. Or if the weak force (responsible for radioactive decay) were weaker, all the hydrogen in the early universe would have been converted to helium and as a result there would be no normal stars. If the weak force were stronger, supernovas would not produce the heavier elements we need for life. If the mass of a proton were .2% heavier, they would decay into neutrons and thereby destabilize the atom. Also, the masses of quarks are optimized for the creation of a large family of stable nuclei as seen on our periodic table. If the quark masses were off by just a little, there would be far fewer stable atoms and again no life (our bodies require a broad spectrum of some 40+ elements on the periodic table). There are many more examples of this "fine tuning" for initial conditions, but thhhhe bottom line is that our universe is optimized and tuned for existence and life.
As a metaphor, consider someone blowing bubbles ... Many of the bubbles immediately pop, some last for a short period, but every now and then you get one that expands and stays together and flies away as far as you can see. Similarly most of the variations of possible universes are short-lived bubbles with only a few getting large enough to expand significantly and even fewer with the ability to host life. We live in a bubble universe where all the fundamental constants are harmoniously adjusted for the symphony of life.
Planet Earth - The Goldilocks Planet
To arrive at life as we know it on earth, the amazing journey continues. Not only do we need a universe that has the fundamental constants precisely tuned, life needs a favorable solar system as well. The three main components that make a solar system able to sustain life are:
A single star (not a binary or multi-star system),
A star that is "second generation",
And a hospitable planet with a nearly circular orbit at just the right distance from its sun.
First, a single star is necessary for life. This may sound simple, but half of all the stars in the universe are binary stars, which means that two stars are orbiting each other. While there are stable orbits in such systems, all possibilities are not compatible for life to exist because the conditions would either get too hot or too cold at certain points in the orbit. Multiple star systems (3 or more stars clustered together) are even worse. Biological life needs a solar system with a single star.
Secondly, the star needs to be a second-generation star, which means it formed from a supernova explosion of an earlier primordial star. This is critical because elements heavier than iron require a supernova explosion for their creation. Iron has the atomic number 26 and all fusion reactions up to iron are exothermic; that is, they release energy. Beyond iron, energy must be supplied to create the heavier elements, which could only come about by a supernova explosion. Our planet has around 65 naturally occurring elements heavier than iron. What this means is that our sun is a second-generation star and our solar system was formed from the remnants of a supernova explosion. Our bodies require several elements heavier than iron such as zinc, copper, iodine, selenium, cobalt (vitamin B-12), plus more. As Carl Sagan put it "We are made of star stuff"!
Finally the orbit of the planet around the singular sun needs to be almost perfectly circular, and not too elliptical like mercury or Pluto. If the orbit is too elliptical, conditions can get too hot or too cold. The planet also needs to be just the right distance - called the "Goldilocks Zone" by physicists - from the sun. Since the stars mass determines the amount of energy it gives off, this Goldilocks zone can be graphed as a plot of star mass versus distance (See Figure 2). It's a very narrow range. Why? Think of water, which we know we need for life. Water, on the cosmic scale exists in its liquid state only in the tiny range of 0-100 degrees Celsius (273-373 Kelvin) or 32-212 Fahrenheit. If you consider our sun gets up to 5.4 billion degrees Fahrenheit (3 billion Kelvin) at its core and many stars in the Universe get even much hotter, this is a very small range of temperatures on the cosmic scale. As you may have guessed, the earth is in the perfect center of this Goldilocks zone. As a comparison, our closest planets Venus and Mars fall just outside of this zone.
The Elements of Life
In a classic paper presented by George Wald in 1964 to the US National Academy of Sciences, it was established that life requires (at least) the following elements:
The presence of liquid water
The elements needed for metabolism and reproduction
A source of energy
Suitable environmental conditions (which includes the earth's magnetic field)
Much of what was discussed on life needing an ideal solar system with one sun, and a planet that was the perfect distance away, in a nearly circular orbit revolves around an environment that supports liquid water. Having a second-generation star and solar systems gives all the necessary elements or building blocks of life, but life requires even a much more delicate balance.
The earth itself is considered a living organism (see chapter 5 on the Gaia Theory), because of its ability to maintain homeostasis amidst the chaotic activity of the sun and the complex cycles of life on earth. The earth maintains certain conditions such as a stable global temperature, atmospheric content (high oxygen, low CO2), ocean salinity, the right balance of elements in its crust, and several other factors that are "just right" for life.
The human body is also a paragon of perfect balance and homeostasis, with an inner environment of 100 trillion cells kept in perfect balance to give us life and health. There are several parameters the human body needs within very precise ranges. Below are 5 of the most important:
Glucose level: between 80-110 mg/dl (< Hypoglycemia, >Diabetes)
Blood Pressure: [120-140]/[80-90] (< Hypotension (dizziness), > Hypertension)
Temperature: 98.6-100 (< Hypothyroidism, > Fever)
Oxygen level: paO2 > 95% (< Hypoxia, > Doesn't occur)
pH: 7.35-7.45 (< Chronic pain, > Throbbing pain (inflammation response))
If your body has an abundance of health and vitality, it will be able to maintain these healthy ranges via several feedback mechanisms. For example, bicarbonate helps to buffer acidity in the body, while the acid in the stomach can neutralize an overly alkaline condition. The pancreas (and liver) keep a stable blood sugar level; the kidneys help stabilize blood pressure; your body sweats to cool off; breathes fasters to absorb more oxygen, etc. Sickness and disease results from low vitality and/or excessive stress from diet, dehydration, poor breathing, emotional/psychological stress (work, relationships, etc.) that knocks the body out of homeostasis, which usually means outside one or more of the above parameters.
These are a few examples of the razors edge life walks on to create the balance of life. Fortunately, as we'll see in this book our bodies are an amazing field of matter, energy, information and consciousness. We have a perfect blueprint for health, providing we give it the right elements and do not over-stress ourselves. Also, in light of new advancements that can better detect and understand the human body's bio-energetic field (see chapter 4), we'll see that modern science is more and more proving an amazing connection between the energetic fields of the earth, and those of the human body and mind. We'll reveal new "Star Trek"-like devices that can recharge and re-energize the human body, its organs, tissues and cells.
Life has been 13.77 billion years in the making. It's the ultimate balancing act, a remarkable evolution at the cosmic, galactic, solar, and planetary levels that has created life on earth. For our own life and health, that balance is created by giving the body the essential elements it needs for health, and removing the stressors, toxicity and unhealthy elements that throw us out of balance, out of homeostasis and into disease. Next we'll look into the five essential elements needed for the human body to maintain its balance, health, and vitality.
The 5 Elements of Health: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, & Aether
Health is not everything, but without health everything is nothing.
—German Philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer
What is health anyway? Is it just an absence of disease, surviving to live another day? Is there a limit to how much energy we can have and how long we can live? Or are those limits self-imposed through our education and upbringing?
We've seen the amazing journey life has taken. We've looked at the elements needed for the universe, our solar system, and our planet to be hospitable for life. Let's now look closer at how we can preserve and extend the precious life-force within us, and what elements our bodies need to thrive, not just survive. In this book, we are going to take a pro-health approach to longevity and wellness. This pro-health approach is simply reconnecting to the earth and its elements and it is in alignment with new breakthroughs in physics, biophysics and biology. This pro-health approach puts YOU in the drivers seat as pro-active and responsible for your own health. This is opposed to the anti-sickness approach of modern medicine that views health as simply an absence of disease, and makes you a helpless patient or victim needing to be fixed if something goes wrong.
It's important to understand that your body has an innate intelligence knowing how to sustain, maintain, and create perfect health if the right elements are introduced into your body while the "wrong" elements are eliminated and removed. We'll see the five essential elements the human body needs for optimal health. The first four essential elements may be obvious, but the 5th element of health might surprise you as being essential. It's that 5th element that this book is primarily dedicated to, but all of these elements work together to enliven and innervate your amazing holographic and energetic human body.
The "Real" Science of the Four Elements
The philosophical system of the elements dates back to ancient civilizations including the Babylonian, Greek, Hindu, Japanese and Medieval alchemy. All of these systems have closely related concepts of the four elements of nature: earth, water, fire and air, along with a fifth element. We'll explore the four elements of nature in this section and the fifth element in the next, and then we'll connect these five elements to the five elements of nature, life, and health of the human body.
We know today there are 92 naturally occurring elements on earth. We can better understand the philosophical idea of the 4 elements when thinking of the states of matter: solid, liquid, gas and plasma. These are the four primary phases that all elements can be categorized in so perhaps the ancients did understand the elements. These phases correspond to earth (solid), water (liquid), air (gas) and fire (plasma).
These states of matter are obvious and easy to understand with perhaps the exception of plasma. Plasma is an ionized gas, a gas into which sufficient energy is provided to free electrons from atoms or molecules and to allow both species, ions and electrons, to coexist. It is plasma from the sun that generates the sun's energy, which is then emitted to the earth for warmth, energy, and life. Plasma is the most common state of matter in the universe.
It turns out we need these elements as they exist on our planet in the form of food (earth), water (liquid), air (oxygen) and fire (plasma on the sun that creates the electromagnetic frequencies we need in the infrared, visible and UV spectrum). Fire can also be thought of as temperature, namely the right temperature for life to exist (and the other necessities related to keeping a stable temperature are clothing, shelter, AC and heat).
Because we've evolved on this planet, our bodies are made of the elements of this earth; it follows logically that we require natural foods, water, air and sunlight (along with the right temperature) as close as possible to what the earth provides to survive. I want to briefly go over these four elements: EARTH/FOOD, WATER, FIRE/SUNLIGHT and AIR/OXYGEN plus a fifth we'll explore in the next section.
The 1st Element of Health - Earth/Food
Look deep into nature and understand everything else better.
The element "earth" gives us the primary foundation and structure for our human body. On planet earth, there are 92 naturally occurring elements, 40 of which are needed by our body. Along with these 40 elements, which are mainly minerals, we also need vitamins, essential amino acids, glucose, and essential fatty acids. And nutritional science is now discovering we may also depend on countless more phytochemicals, antioxidants and other complex molecules found in fruits, vegetables, herbs, sprouts, nuts, seeds, beans, etc. Many of these essential elements can be obtained by eating a well-balanced, whole food organic diet that includes a wide variety of foods (especially fruits and veggies).
