Dark Field Microscopy
Beverly Rubik, PhD
The dark-field microscope involves a unique method of lighting a specimen under the microscope from scattered light so that the field around it appears dark. Because of this high contrast, it allows one to see things that are typically invisible in ordinary light microscopy. Traditionally it is used in medicine to look for microbes linked to syphilis and Lyme disease. It can also be used to look at live blood to evaluate the health of biological terrain, the "soil" or "ground" that is the foundation of the health of all of the cells of the body. Not only microbes and sometimes parasites can be observed in blood, but many other factors as well. Dr. Rubik will explain this type of blood analysis and how she uses it in research and education. Through numerous photographs of the blood, she will show the full spectrum from high level wellness to metastatic cancer.
Beverly Rubik, PhD, earned her Ph.D. in biophysics in 1979 at the University of California at Berkeley. She is internationally renowned for her pioneering research in frontier science and medicine. Her main focus is research on the subtle energetics of living systems, including the human energy field, energy medicine devices, and whole-person health and healing. She has published over 100 papers and 2 books. Dr. Rubik presently serves on the editorial boards of Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine; Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine; and Integrative Medicine Insights.
Dr. Rubik was a member of the Program Advisory Board to the Office of Alternative Medicine at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) from 1992-1997, and chaired the NIH panels on bioelectromagnetic medicine and energy healing. This was a precursor to National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM).
In 1996, Dr. Rubik founded the Institute for Frontier Science (IFS), a nonprofit corporation for research and education. She has received NIH grants and foundation funding to support her research on energy healing, diet and nutrition, and water. She teaches in Integrative Health Studiesat the California Inst. of Integral Studies and in the College of Mind-Body Medicine at Saybrook University, both of which are in San Francisco, and also at Energy Medicine University, in Sausalito, CA.
Beverly Rubik has won several awards for her pioneering research, including the Integrity in Science award from the Weston A Price Foundation. She serves as a consultant in the health care industry on maverick health and wellness products and as an integrative health advisor to clients.
