A Bridge of Light Toward Chinese and Western Medicine Perspectives Through Ultraweak Photon Emissions

" Developments in research of ultraweak photon emission (UPE) and organized dynamics of metabolism and its relationship with technological advances in metabolomics have created the conditions to bring the basics of the medicines of the West and East together which might open the avenue for a scientific dialogue. The paper discusses (1) the UPE in relation to Qi energy, meridians and acupuncture points in CM, (2) the biochemical explanation of photon emission of living systems in Western biomedicine, and (3) the progress in research on the large-scale organization and dynamics of the metabolic network including photon metabolism." {Credits 1}

" The main results arising from these studies is that human photon emission increases with age as well as with disease. It depends on gender and it is reduced by acupuncture." {Credits 1}

Although not related to the hypothesis of meridian tracks as waveguide for biophotonic emissions these are various paragraphs on the essay that describe important advances in the detection of the biophoton (UPE) generation and characteristics in mitochondria:

" Visualizing live cells under the microscope reveals that mitochondria form dynamic networks whose structure is molded by the opposing processes of mitochondrial fission and fusion leading to shape changes and molecular exchange within seconds to minutes [42]. Various cellular environmental stimuli, such as nutrient stress or vital attack, dramatically change the shape of the mitochondrial network [43,44]. It has commonly been reported that mitochondrial morphology is closely associated with the ability of mitochondria to produce energy." {Credits 1}

" Such a tool or indicator in intact cells and live animals led to the observation of a “mitochondrial flash” within individual mitochondria [49,50]. The universal existence from plants to mammals of “flash-like” events detected by mitochondrial ROS indicators represents a major breakthrough. A number of different fluorescent indicators for multiple processes (e.g., superoxide, pH, and membrane potential) can detect flash activity involving multiple transient concurrent changes within the mitochondrion. The similar unitary features “flash-like” events have suggested that many mitochondrial processes/functions are integrated or interconnected, and changes in 1 component directly or indirectly affect the others [51,52]." {Credits 1}
