Cell biologist Dr. Glen Rein had conceived of the idea that DNA would make a good target for testing healers’ ability to affect biological systems, since well established quantitative measures of DNA’s conformational state existed and it potentially offered a more stable and reliable system than cell or bacterial cultures. He had tested this model system with several healers by having them hold test tubes containing DNA while they attempted to create a healing environment, and had obtained some positive indicators that the conformational state of DNA changed when exposed to these environments. In late 1991, Dr. Rein accepted a position at the HeartMath Research Center with the intention of continuing these experiments in addition to a series of cell culture studies. We conducted a number of different experiments with DNA over the next year and a half. The first six months were primarily spent performing a series of control studies to insure the stability of the measurement system and refining the protocols. Doc Childre then added the element of intentionality to the protocols, which proved to be a key factor.
Some of the key results of this series of studies were presented at research conferences and published in several conference proceedings.1-4 We have since received so many requests for the results of this research that we are now making a summary of our findings available in this brief report.
