I am looking for some medical advice for a friend.
my housemate is a 62 year old man, and a year ago he was bit by a spider, which made his ankle swell up to about double size. there is also a festering wound that doesnt look like its healing. He is confined to crutches and wheelchair and has arthritis too.
i have been reading a book by roger coghill, called 'something in the air', which suggests that in the fields of electro-healing and magneto-healing, there may be ways of speeding up wound healing.
Robert Becker says "Intrinsic electromagnetic energy inherent in the nervous system of the body is therefore the factor that exerts the major controlling influence over growth processes in general."
Apparently, if i could identify the potential voltage, i could hook up a DC circuit such that the 'negative ion' flow is in the direction that is natural to the tissue, and that would help regeneration.
But I don't want to just stick needles in this guy's leg and attach them to a 9V battery. Hopefully someone knows some information on this, or perhaps can just point me in the direction of a relavent web site or two.
It sounds like an interesting project anyway. I know i should just consult with a doctor. but money is tight, and he is already taking pills which are evidently not helping.
