Human Resonance Wave Therapy
The promoter's brochure claims that the device is useful for treating bronchitis, gastritis, gastroduodenal ulcer, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic hepatitis, cholecystitis, nephritis, pancreatitis, diabetic complication, pneumonia, infantile, diarrhea, bedwetting, burns, wound soft tissue (sprain, contusion, bruising), trifacial neuralgia, polyneuralgia, hemorrhoids, joint pain, osphyalgia, lumbar hernia, back pain ear noises, catarrhal conjunctivitis, ulcerative blepharitis , retrobulbar neuritis, epidemic conjunctivitis, conjunctivitis, blepharitis, retrobulbar neuritis, herpes, virus skin rash, allergic dermatitis, pruritus cutaneus, seborrheic keratosis, follicular keratosis, seborrheic dermatitis, athletes foot, eczema, dermatitis gangrenosa, acne, chronic dermatitis, neurodermatitis, atopic dermatitis, alopecia areata, irregular menstruation, functional metrorrhagia, vulvovaginitis, vaginal laceration, endocervicitis, cervicitis, perimetritis puerperalis, salpingitis, tuboovaritis, pelvic inflammatory, cervical laceration, perineal tear, artificial abortion sequele, nephritis, orchitis, cystitis, urethritis, prostatitis, prostatic hypertrophy, epididymoorchitis, priapitis, vulvovaginitis, urinary incontinence, cervicitis, genital trauma, and several other problems.
The brochure also claims that the device can be validated by measuring "blood speed" and that a clinical experiment done in 1997 by the "Research Laboratory of Blood Science U.S.A." found that the waves "increase alkalescency." Searching the Internet, I am unable to locate any mention of such a laboratory. Assuming that the device is a heat lamp, it would be reasonable to assume that a body part that gets heated might have its circulation slightly increased. However, there is no logical reason to believe that this would make the body more alkaline or influence the course of any of the above conditions.
The brochure depicts a scantily-clad woman lying on her back on an table while being treated wth at least four of the devices. This -- and the fact that wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum of 6 to 14 microns fall into to "middle infrared" range -- leads me to conclude that the device is simply an expensive heat lamp. Regardless, the claims made for it are nonsense, the range of treatable conditions is preposterous, and the device cannot be legally marketed in the United States.
