Another scientist that did research on electricity as a therapy was a Russian emigrant, Georges Lakhovsky who made observations of the effects of electricity and radio waves on living organisms. His first book, THE SECRET OF LIFE, was first published in 1935 during the same month Hitler drove his hordes into Prague. The book appeared later in Spanish, French, Italian, and finally in English.
Many of his theories were, of course, ignored in conventional medicine as in 1938, the Flexner Committee reported to the US Congress it reported on medical education and branded electrotherapy as “quackery.” Many of Lakhovsky’s theories were only recently confirmed by Becker in his book THE BODY ELECTRIC, published in 1987.
Today, electric field therapy is slowly gaining acceptance among the medical fraternity as an effective method to improve health.
