Bjorn Nordenstrom

Overview: It was during the period of the birth of radiology in the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, when Bjorn Nordenstrom utilized the electric fields in cancerous tumours. He discovered that white blood cells transport an electric negative charge, allowing them to be attracted to the tumor by a platinum electrode. The platinum with a positive charge, was implanted in the affected area. A chemical and electrical process was produced, and that robbed the cancer cells of oxygen, draining water and causing the tumor to dehydrate. That process is still in the developmental phase now.  

During the 1950’s, a brilliant, inquisitive and highly innovative Swedish  radiologist and surgeon, Dr. Björn E.W. Nordenström became interested in streaks, spikes and coronas that he saw in X-ray images of lung tumors. When Dr. Nordenström discussed his observations with other physicians, many of his colleagues saw nothing. Others attributed the phenomena to artifacts in the image.

Dr. Nordenström was quite familiar with negative reactions from his colleagues. As his accomplishments grew, he became Head of Diagnostic Radiology at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden. He also authored or co-authored more than 150 publications in radiology, electrobiology and pharmacology.  He was a member of the Nobel Assembly from 1967 through 1986, and served as President of the Assembly in 1985.  Even with these credentials, many of his ideas, such as needle biopsy and balloon catheterization were initially met with significant amounts of opposition by his peers.

In 1965, Dr. Nordenström began a scientific investigation into the subtle anomalies that he observed in lung tumor X-ray images. After years of very careful experimentation and analysis, he came to the conclusion that the streaks, spikes and coronas that could be seen in X-ray radiographs of lung tumors were the result of water movement, movement of ions and restructuring of certain tissues due to the influence of various electrical and electrochemical phenomena.

As his research activities progressed, Dr. Nordenström proposed a closed loop, circulatory, self regulating model for healing that was much more detailed and complete than conventional wound healing models.  Dr. Nordenström’s model involves various Biologically Closed Electric Circuits (BCEC), capable of utilizing a number of physiological pathways and influencing structure and function for a variety of tissues and organs.  In essence, he described another circulatory system where continuous energy circulation and circulating electrical currents support healing, metabolism, growth, regulation, immune response, etc.

Using his BCEC theory, Dr. Nordenström developed electrochemical therapy (EChT), a minimally invasive electrotherapeutic technique for the treatment of cancer and hemangioma tumors.  EChT assists the body’s normal BCEC electrochemical healing processes by complementing and assisting the naturally occurring endogenous electric fields and currents that support the process of healing.

EChT povides a low-cost, patient friendly and highly effective technique for the treatment of localized tumors.  EChT is highly complementary and can be administered with other therapeutic modalities.  EChT does not have the serious side effects associated with conventional therapies, and experience has shown that EChT does not exhibit a significant therapeutic resistance with repeated applications, as is often the case with conventional therapies.
