“Energy Medicine – The Scientific Basis”

By James L. Oschman

Presentation Title:

“FSM and the Fabric of Space”

JIm OSchman, Phd

Academic research (1965-1980) involved the structure and function of cells and tissues, with particular reference to fluid and ion transport and the role of calcium in control of cell functions. Subsequent research (1981-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. Jim’s writings synthesize the science and the experience of a variety of bodywork, energetic, and movement therapies. You will find samples of Jim’s writings on this website. 
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.  Jim’s books, articles, lectures, and workshops are offered in support of these visionaries and their creative process. 
Recently Jim has also become involved as a consultant in the design of medical devices, relying on his experience in biophysics and complementary medicine.

juliana mortenson, md

Juliana Mortenson is a physician physicist, in the proud tradition of Heinrich Helmholtz.  She has had a life-long interest in the interactions of energy fields with biologic organisms.  Dr. Mortenson began her studies at The Ohio State University in microbiology, and was admitted to medical school at Ohio State as an early admission student, without a bachelor’s degree.  In 1982 Dr. Mortenson graduated with both a B.S and an M.D. 

She was accepted to an internship and residency program in anesthesia at OSU Hospitals.  When she informed her new anesthesia department of an unexpected pregnancy, Dr. Mortenson was told by her department Chairman that because of her pregnancy she was no longer welcome in the residency program.  She pressed forward and persuaded the Chairman’s superiors to over-rule him, which did not endear her to the Chairman at all.  Dr. Mortenson persevered and  completed her anesthesia residency at the OSU Hospitals in 1985.  Her handsome twin boys had just turned three (3) years old. 

Presentation Title:

“Something Olde, Something New …”

A year later, Dr. Mortenson was recruited back to OSU Hospitals by the new incoming Chairman, and was able to begin her scientific research in earnest.  She performed research on a variety of medical questions, and worked in the laboratory, in animal research and human research.  She was the first to describe opioid receptors in the peripheral nervous system of humans.  Dr. Mortenson developed novel pain control and anesthesia methods for surgery.  She developed a collaborative relationship with the state’s peer review organization and performed extensive database research looking at quality of care outcomes, and even correlated lung disease in relation to air pollutants by cross-referencing with the Ohio EPA database.

A chance contact with Robert Becker, author of The Body Electric, prompted Dr. Mortenson to pursue her life-long interest in the interactions of energy fields with biologic organisms.   She left the university and did part-time clinical work, while she set up a laboratory in her basement.  Dr. Mortenson found an angel investor and together they established Berkshire Laboratories, where she performed ground breaking research in the fields of resonance science, and energy fields and waves.  What began as a keen interest in biologics broadened to chemistry, materials, crystallization, and foundational physics.  Berkshire eventually grew into General Resonance, where Dr. Mortenson extended her resonance work down into the nano-scale range.  Her original discoveries enabled the development of the nanoparticle technology now used by Clene Nanomedicine, to make new treatments with few or no side effects for diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Arthritis.

Dr. Mortenson has developed new concepts and frameworks in the area of resonance physics and resonance dynamics.  She has written and spoken around the world on this newly developing topic.  Upon learning of the work with Frequency Specific Microcurrents, Dr. Mortenson immediately recognized aspects of her many years of resonance research in the clinical use of FSM.  She is delighted to share her insights with the FSM community.

“Toxic – Heal Your Body from Mold Toxicity, Lyme Disease, Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and Chronic Environmental Illness”

By Neil Nathan, MD

Despite my many years of clinical practice, I am still optimistic that I can help every single person who comes through my door. The truth is that I haven’t been able to do this, but the truth is also that I have helped the vast majority of them to improve or heal. It is that experience that motivated me to write Toxic: Heal Your Body and Healing is Possible. There are, unfortunately, millions of suffering individuals who have not been able to be clearly diagnosed or helped by conventional medicine, and who are not aware that help is indeed possible. My books are intended to be a starting point for their journey into health, and it is my hope that they will reach as many patients as possible.

Presentation Title:

Understanding the Importance of Mold Toxicity in Chronic Illness

Neil Nathan, MD

Several years ago, I began to teach my colleagues what I had learned about working with chronically ill patients and I called this course “What Every Physician Should Know About Working With Complex Medical Illness.” My patients asked me to provide this same information in a somewhat simplified form, and that is how my books, first “On Hope and Healing” and my new book, “Healing is Possible: New Hope for Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Persistent Pain, and Other Chronic Illnesses” came to be. My text, for those books, is derived from the distillation of countless patient visits. When I found a patient’s eyes glazing over as I began to explain some details of biochemistry, I took note. When they sat up, alertly and asked cogent questions, I took note of that, too.

Since the publication of those books, my practice has continued to evolve. I am now primarily seeing referrals from physicians who have studied this new field of integrative medicine, and who have tried many of the interventions discussed in these books. They are helping most of those patients, but the ones who are not responding, the outliers, are being referred to me in ever-increasing numbers. What distinguishes this group of patients is that over time, they have become increasingly sensitive, often exquisitely sensitive, too many of the treatments which had been so effective for others. Many have been formally diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), but others simply cannot take even minuscule doses of herbs, or homeopathic remedies without a profound reaction. While their physicians, who may never have seen such sensitivities, diagnose them as having depression and anxiety, these reactions are not psychogenic, but physical. We believe we are seeing the accumulation of massive amounts of toxin in those individuals. They cannot be treated until the toxins have been removed and they are biochemically strengthened, and only then can we even begin to start treatment.

Rob DeMartino 1

Robert Demartino, DC

Dr. Robert DeMartino could have done anything with his life – he has the brains and the motivation – so many of his fellow medical school students who’d thought he would surely become a brain surgeon (or something similar) were surprised when he declared he would pursue chiropractic.

Superior Health Solutions and Dr. DeMartino’s career path of choice came as a result of Dr. DeMartino’s own experiences. For 6 years Dr. DeMartino suffered from debilitating migraine headaches. Medications couldn’t curb the pain, and the numerous doctors he saw couldn’t find the root of the problem – until he visited a chiropractor for a sports injury. Upon being “cured” of his migraines, Dr. DeMartino was inspired; he took on the chiropractor as his mentor and set out to find ways to help others like him. 

Presentation Title:

To Be Announced

He had lived with the pain, missing school, and many normal childhood activities. He found others not only live with pain, but they live with the effects of drugs and surgeries that didn’t – and will never – solve their problems, and he vowed to help them.

To do this, he implements his training in quantum neurology, a collection of techniques that evaluate and restore every major nerve in the body, allowing the body to better heal itself. Dr. DeMartino is the only doctor in Nevada who practices in this area of healing.

Dr. DeMartino is a medical board chair for APDA American Parkinson’s Disease Association, health advisor for Whole Foods Henderson and Sun City MacDonald Ranch, and volunteers for the Foundation for Wellness Professionals and Well Rounded Momma, a natural birthing center. He is also a master trainer for the Neurological Relief Centers.

As a member of the Foundation for Wellness Professionals, a national nonprofit foundation, Dr. DeMartino as presented as a guest speaker for The Wellness Series held at community libraries and participating businesses. Past topics have ranged from how to burn fat, avoid and eliminate type II diabetes and natural alternatives, to infertility, to treating autism naturally, drug-free approaches to attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and solutions to multiple sclerosis symptoms.

TMJD and FSM: Successful Strategies in Physical Medicine applications

Kim Pittis, LCSP, MT

Kim was the first myofascial therapist practicing with FSM (Frequency Specific Microcurrent) in Alberta, Canada and the first Certified, Advanced Practitioner and Core Practicum Instructor in Canada. Kim has been in practice for over 19 years with an extensive background in myofascial manual therapies. She has furthered her education with seminars and courses all over North America and Europe in a variety of modalities and disciplines. Kim has an additional background as a CPT which she did for many years in conjunction with her soft tissue treatments.

The foundation of Kim’s philosophy and practice is that symptom-based treatments do not work. Integrating osteopathic-based assessment skills ensures hidden and compensated musculoskeletal dysfunctions are remedied and not simply treated with a myofascial Band-Aid. Kim has extensive experience with Olympic and professional athletes from around the world in various sports and has been compiling excellent case studies and research with her work with some of these athletes and their success with FSM. Kim is the Director of FSM Sports which provides seminars and training modules that concentrate on the application of FSM in physical medicine and the athletic population for practitioners in a variety of disciplines.
