It usually implies a vitalistic philosophy-something immaterial produces life and health in a material body. James Oschman believes that the phenomena of energy medicine can be studied, measured, and explained by science without invoking any mysterious life forces or unmeasurable subtle energies. He marshals a large body of experimental evidence and argument to try to support his thesis. In the foreword, Candace Pert sets a strange tone for a scientific book by describing how Dr. Oschman "pulled" some energy away from her "stagnant" liver. Historical Background According to Oschman, "In the past, the most remarkable success stories of complementary therapists as well as healings in the religious context were often dismissed because there was no logical explanation.

Biological Sciences, University of Pittsburgh, B. Biophysics, University of Pittsburgh, e-mail: joschman aol. Subsequent research present involves explorations of the scientific basis for complementary and alternative medicines.
Modern research science is validating and explaining the beneficial effects of a wide range of complementary, alternative and integrative therapies. Every medical tradition and every therapeutic school has a core of visionary and creative individuals who are advancing the methodology and who recognize that their work of innovation, like that of their predecessors, is never finished.
Recently Jim has also become involved as a consultant in the design of medical devices, relying on his experience in biophysics and complementary medicine.
For your work in Biophysics and Biology and your distinction as an international authority on energy and complementary medicine; for your numerous articles and books on complementary medicine including Energy Medicine-The Scientific Basis that uses science to demystify this emerging form of healing; for initiating a scholarly discussion on complementary therapies and their potential to contribute to patient care; and for your service on the Scientific Advisory Committee of NFAM.

James Oschman: “Las enfermedades pueden tratarse bioenergéticamente sin necesidad de fármacos”
These two books give the most skeptical academic scientists a theoretical basis for exploring the physiology and biophysics of energy medicines. Oschman has both the academic credentials and the background in alternative therapies to carry out his explorations. He has degrees in Biophysics and Biology from the University of Pittsburgh. He has worked in major research labs around the world. And, to learn about the theories and practices underlying complementary methods, Jim has both taught and attended classes at various schools around the world, and experienced a wide range of bodywork techniques. Jim is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for the National Foundation for Alternative Medicine; which is currently focused on researching electromagnetic devices for treating cancer. This is the only organization that sends scouts throughout the world searching for alternative therapies with the goal of subjecting these methods to scientific investigation and reporting the results to the American public on its web page: NFAM.
