Science accelerates Wound Healing
an Interview with Dr. J. Alan Tanner
…..Collagen is all important in healing. It is the material that
gives mechanical strength to a healing wound and forms the scar.
We carried out this experiment on a rat exposing a prepared wound to
a MICROWAVE FIELD and we found that healing was speeded up. It was
a repeatable phenomenon and we carried out hundreds of experiments
with positive results. And if we wanted to accelerate the healing
still more, we found we could achieve this by putting a small amount
of HISTAMINE IN THE WOUND.
This produces more fluid in the area of the wound and enables
healing to proceed more rapidly. We’ve simply demonstrated that it
is possible to accelerate the normal process. If the HIGH FREQUENCY
FIELD is DIRECTED TO THE WOUND, there is MORE FLUID from which to
generate the FIBRIN and COLLAGEN, all important for the healing
A.E. How does the high frequency treatment compare with the normal
time in healing a wound?
JAT You can watch the healing process IN REAL TIME under a
microscope. A wound develops mechanical strength after about
20 minutes of exposure (to microwave fields). Normally if you
cut yourself, it takes 48 to 72 hours to get any strength at
Another advantage we found is that since there are no sutures,
you’re not INSULTING the skin, so you get a beautifully healed
wound. On some of the animals, the dog, for example, we lost
sight of some of the wounds. They healed so well we COULDN’T
EVEN SEE A SCAR.
A.E. Imagine the benefits of healing wounds without scars!
JAT Yes, WITHOUT SCARS. Of course there are tricks to the trade.
We found that some wounds weren’t healing as well as others.
We couldn’t understand this but again, after protracted
experimental investigation, we found it all depended on how
well you APPOSED THE LIPS OF THE WOUND.
We were using surgical incisions with clean, square edges, but
we had to make sure those edges were PERFECTLY APPOSED. If
you left an air gap then you’d get a weak point. So we
developed a tape that you could just put over the wound.
In the tape are two electrodes. They don’t touch the skin,
they’re insulated. But they PROVID THE ELECTRO-MAGNETIC
FIELD. The tape also holds the wound edges together. This
has proved to be very successful.
A.E. It seems the profession of medicine has access to this
innovative healing device but won’t investigate it to prove
its effectiveness, or to prove there’s some risk.
JAT There’s always resistance to new methods in the medical field
and perhaps, justifiably, I wouldn’t question it. When a body
process is artificially SPEEDED UP the question arises as to
what is the possibility of inducing some sort of malignancy.
Experiments designed specifically to answer this question
would take two to three years. There are many answers we have
to come up with before everybody will be satisfied that it’s a
safe and sound technique to use. I wouldn’t object to this in
principle. I’m sorry that time is going by.
A.E. Is this method being used in other countries?
JAT We have evidence now, in France, that an elecrode design
similar to ours is being manufactured there. I don’t know how
widely it’s being used in Europe, who knows? But what we have
to do in order to promote the next phase of the work in this
country is to develop a means of measuring the quality of
healing a wound.
A.E. You have a deep belief in this device, that it will become
your contribution to the human race?
JAT Yes, I certainly think ACCELERATED WOUND HEALING will be an
asset to mankind when it is used generally. But it’s the
result of curiosity. It wasn’t a guess, we knew, we expected
this sort of change to occur in the skin. The reasons for it
were quite clear, Dr. Romero just proved that he was right.
A.E. Can you give a simple explanation about why the wound healer
works in terms of the electromagnetic spectrum?
JAT All I can say is that the normal healing process is
accelerated. It’s an electronic process as it stands, and it
appears that we are simply speeding up the biochemical
Body processes are all controlled by membranes. Every cell
has a membrane around it that DIRECTS THE NUTRIENTS IN and the
METABOLIZED PRODUCTS OUT.
The function of a membrane is influenced by the presence of an
electromagnetic field and in the case of epithelial (skin)
structures the benefit obtained is accelerated healing.
A.E. You must be knowledgeable about some of the experiments being
done with the human forcefield or aura, using it to heal
specific areas of the body, one’s own body or another’s?
JAT I’m aware of activity in this area and I think that in the
future many phenomena today described as extra-sensory will be
shown to have a firm physical basis.
A.E. What do you see as future uses of the wound healer?
JAT Ultimately, it could be used by the man on the street.
He would carry a little high-frequency oscillator pocket
sized, battery driven, and bandages of different shapes and
sized for different kinds of wounds, all of which had
electrodes in them, and probably the histamine or some analog
of that which is needed to assist in the healing operation.
The intermediate stage – I see hospitals using it for closures
in surgical procedures, for accidents, cases in emergency
clinics with great advantages. You’d have a faster turnover
of patients in a hospital.
The other use I haven’t mentioned is COSMESIS. COSMESIS is
very important to the plastic surgeon. With the wound healer,
RAPID HEALING is achieved WITHOUT RESORTING TO SUTURES. The
result is a cosmetically superior scar.
A.E. What is keeping it from general public use?
JAT We have completed an extensive experimental program on animals
with positive and very encouraging results but now it is
necessary to mount an experimental program on human subjects
to satisfy the requirements of the medical profession.
We must proceed according to the establishment’s rules. It’s
a long process but I believe one day that all wounds will be
healed in this way.
This file makes reference to the use of histamines as a further
method of assisting the wound healing process. For those of us
who are subject to allergic reactions, we know that ANTI-
HISTAMINES are used to PREVENT THE EXCESS RELEASE OF FLUIDS.
Exposure to histamines therefore induces the cell membrane to
exude fluids which provide a more soluble medium for chemical
interchanges. In addition, the fluid medium aids in the
transportability of other components such as fibrins,
This accelerated healing process would make an excellent video
to show the effects of the process on a real wound. Most video
cameras allow the addition of a date/time stamp or an elapsed
timer as a further record. Might make an interesting project
for someone in the future.
It is probable that microwave excitation would induce intra-
cellular heating in the form of very low level roiling of the
fluid medium. This would be the equivalent of turbo-charging
the healing process by offering a greater number of exchanges
over a shorter period of time.
Those of us who are Star Trek followers can see what such
procedures could eventually lead to. An excellent beginning.
We felt the contents and work presented in the paper should not
be relegated to some dusty storage area to be lost.
