Healing With Light: The Future of Medicine? (Pt. I)


Warning: this story is about a man who has developed a groundbreaking new therapy: healing with light. The man is not a doctor. Nor is he an accredited scientist. His proof is rather anecdotal, and, yes, there are countless skeptics eagerly lining up to attack his results and conclusions. Yet Johan Boswinkel might just hold a key to the medicine of the future in his hands.

Why should you read on, after a warning like that? Because modern medicine, despite all its progress, often remains powerless against the many chronic illnesses spawned by our modern lifestyle. Albert Einstein said it well: You can never solve a problem on the same level of thinking on which it was created. My son’s T-shirt puts it more baldly: “It’s usually the oddballs who change the world.”

That’s a description—I say with all respect—that fits Johan Boswinkel to a “T.” “Oddballs” don’t fit neatly into known structures or frameworks. Boswinkel is the personification of the independent ­autodidact. He asked questions no one else asked and found a solution no one else found. He built an instrument that can measure disturbances in the body and correct them. Using that instrument, he and the hundreds of people he has trained in the past 20 years have helped thousands of people banish serious diseases and troublesome ailments. “Our approach should become primary health care. We have a success rate of 80 percent without harmful side effects,” Boswinkel says in his apartment overlooking the Maas River in central Rotterdam.

In the early 1980s, Boswinkel worked as a director of a travel agency in New Zealand. Suffering from exhaustion after a particularly busy period, he visited an acupuncturist at his secretary’s urging. The man treated him, but more important, he asked Boswinkel to translate an article for him from German into English. That article was written by German physicist Fritz-Albert Popp, and it discussed his research proving Russian embryologist Alexander Gurwitsch’s hypothesis that all cells emit an extremely faint light. Popp called that light “biophotons” and demonstrated that these biophotons direct the body’s biochemical processes.

That bit of translation brought about a radical change in Boswinkel’s life. He had always wanted to understand more about the way human beings work. He had studied economics but quit the program before completing it, after discovering that “the models never worked in the real world because they never took people into account.” He then studied medicine, only to discover that “people were missing there, too.” Psychology also failed to answer his questions, and he finally went to work for a bank. But his desire to understand what makes us tick kept burning. Popp’s article got him thinking. “If all the information required to control the body’s biochemical processes is in the light that the body emits, and if disturbances in that light disrupt ­biochemical processes and cause disease—as Popp claimed—then it must be possible to “examine” the light and remove the disease. Then you return the “repaired” light to the body. If it works, it will have enormous consequences for everything.”

Nexus magazine Feb-Mar 2014 Vol. 21, No. 2 has an article written by me called "Porphyrins: how we assimilate light". It presents well-established scientific evidence-based facts (Britannica 2010) 'clarifying' and supporting biophoton and other 'light energy' theses. Mainstream academia refuses to comment because it makes them look a bit 'recalcitrant' with their 'Traditional refusal' to admit that light energy IS relevant to human biological processes. I am forming a network of informed, objective and educated professionals to 'force' academia to accept the obvious and enable medical and scientific knowledge-bases to be amended to reflect the Truth. Please contact me if you want to be part of this long overdue 'change'.

Nothing would surprise me about the benefits of alternative therapies. Would love to see a study done on this therapy.

Interesting but I would have thought that if he has his claimed 80% success rate, then he would have run some proper trials that could be analysed and published...

Looking forward to the second article.
Thanks very much,so interesting.

I am a master Reiki practioner and i have studied other alternative treatments as well. you may not believe what i say but i tell you that medicine and cures existed hundreds of years ago that were able to treat problems modern medicine can not.

Science is somewhat hindering because it discourages these therapies. but cures exist in nature that would help man if not science. there is a fruit called Guyabano that grows mostly in Sri Lanka and is able to actually kill cancer cells 10000 times faster than Chemo. (you can actually google this). So why doesn't the world know about it? despite several attempts by major pharma companies, medicine could not be made out of the fruit and hence it could not be profited from by the corporations. So no one learned of it.
