As the human body is increasingly understood in bioelectromagnetic and quantum physical contexts, electromagnetic (EM) devices may prove more effective at treating certain health disorders than biochemical approaches. Therapeutic EM devices have proliferated on the open market to 'enhance wellness', while in the medical community they are primarily employed as diagnostic tools. We are developing taxonomy of EM devices to better comprehend their origins and interrelationships. Since placebo responses cloud all studies of efficacy in treating health conditions, we are characterizing in detail the radiation and fields associated with these devices and their effect on physical matter, including especially water. From the scientific literature, we can clarify what fields are considered beneficial, what fields may be harmful, and where further research is required.
