Dr. Mercola”s Comments
The story of Dr. Wilhelm Reich and his discovery of orgone is part of the censored science of the 20th century that has been expunged from textbooks, and about which conventional media refuses to accurately report.
Dr. Reichâ€™s Discovery of Orgone
In 1940, Dr. Reich, an Austrian immigrant, made the scientific discovery of a previously unknown energy existing in the atmosphere, in space, and within all living organisms.
He called it orgone, which is synonymous with â€œlife energy.â€
He observed that the orgone energy charge in the human biosystem was expressed in emotion, sexuality, and could be measured bioelectrically. Through a number of experiments, he showed that a personâ€™s overall vitality and aliveness was a function of human and atmospheric orgone charges and pulsations, and that physical vitality could be increased by sitting inside a so-called orgone accumulator.
He also discovered that the orgone charge of your tissues is a fundamental part of your immune system. People were able to significantly boost their immune function by sitting in Dr. Reichâ€™s orgone accumulator for approximately 30 minutes a day for several days.
The results were so incredible, in fact, that Dr. Theodore Wolfe, a pioneer in psychosomatic medicine, referred to the orgone accumulator as â€œthe most important single discovery in the history of medicine, bar none.â€
Although orgone energy is near impossible to define or explain, the following properties of orgone were deduced by Dr. Reich:
It is mass free, i.e. orgone energy itself has no inertia or weight.
It is present everywhere; it fills all space. It is present in differing degrees or concentrations or “charges”, but nowhere is it absent. It even exists in a vacuum.
It is the medium for electromagnetic and gravitational phenomena. (It is the medium in which light moves and electromagnetic and gravitational fields exert force.)
It is in constant motion, which can be observed under appropriate conditions. There are at least two characteristic types of motion: a pulsation or alternating expansion and contraction, and a flow, normally along a curving path.
It contradicts the law of entropy as orgone energy is attracted to concentrations of orgone energy. Unlike heat or electricity, which always show a direction from higher to lower potential, orgone energy flows from lower orgonotic potential to higher.
In addition to the orgone accumulator, Dr. Reich also developed other devices such as small motors that ran on orgone pulled from the ambient air, and devices that could create rain during drought by affecting atmospheric orgone!
The Persecution of Medical and Scientific Genius
His work did not garner him worldwide acclaim as one might expect from such a remarkable discovery, however.
His work was methodically criticized and grossly misrepresented in popular magazine articles. Eventually, the medical community encouraged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to seek and obtain a court injunction to stop Dr. Reich from researching, writing, and speaking about orgone.
Ultimately, he was charged with contempt of court for the technical violation of an obscure cosmetic labeling law, which sent him and an associate, Dr. Silvert, to prison.
His books and research were ordered banned from interstate commerce and were burned.
Victims of elaborate smear campaigns by the medical community and pharmaceutical interests, Dr. Reich died in prison in 1957 while Dr. Silvert committed suicide shortly after his release.
Such has been the fate of many a brilliant, innovative doctor and scientist who dared turn established medical conventions on its earâ€¦
Hereâ€™s a sampling of innovators who have been persecuted, prosecuted or simply ridiculed into a corner of medicine commonly referred to as â€œquackeryâ€ for their amazing discoveries:
* Gaston Naessens â€“ Dr. Naessens created a cancer treatment based on the theory that cancer is caused by a friendly microorganism called somatids “little bodies”) — which are present in all cells — that becomes unfriendly.
His formula, 714X, provides nitrogen to the cancer cells, thus causing this microorganism to cease excreting their toxic compounds, and mobilize your immune system to kill the cancer cells. He was subsequently put on trial for his cancer discoveries.
* Raymond Rife â€“ Rife created a machine that uses resonance to kill viruses and cancer cells.
* Stanislaw Burzynski– Dr. Burzynski, founder of the Houston-based Burzynski Institute, treats cancer patients with substances called antineoplastons. He was indicted by a grand jury in 1995 for his use of antineoplastonsâ€“ his second trial that year. He was acquitted.
* Ryke Geerd Hamer â€“ Dr. Hamerâ€™s â€œGerman New Medicineâ€ (GNM), operates under the premise that every disease, including cancer, originates from an unexpected shock experience, and that all disease can be cured by resolving these underlying emotional traumas.
Dr. Hamer has spent time in prison for refusing to disavow his medical findings and stop treating his patients with his unorthodox techniques, and is currently living in exile, seeking asylum from persecution.
The Re-Emergence of Orgone Energy
Fortunately most of Dr. Reichâ€™s books did survive and have been republished. (All of his book titles are available at www.naturalenergyworks.net.)
Since the 1960â€™s, an entirely new generation of scientists and doctors have investigated his work. Many have reproduced his experiments and applied them clinically, confirming that Dr. Reichâ€™s findings are indeed sound.
A few simple experiments showing orgone (life energy) readings are detailed on the orgonelab.org website, including one measuring the life energy inherent in bio-organic apples versus commercially-grown apples.
Using a modern version of Reichâ€™s Life Energy Meter, you can see the difference in the energy readings between the apples. The organic apple clearly registers as having more potent life force than the apple grown with pesticides.
Finding Out the Truth is Up to You!
The story of Dr. Reich is yet another testament to the largely invisible hold that conventional medicine and Big Pharma has over the entire arena of science and medicine. Anyone who dares to challenge or unbalance the status quo typically must endure the trials of character assassination, if not physical intimidation or incarceration.
Fortunately, the internet now offers avenues of expression and sharing of information previously unheard of, which is exactly why Iâ€™m so passionate about it.
If you would like to continue your own research on orgone energy and its potential implications for your health, the orgone lab website is a great place to start.
