A cleaner sweep

My magazine What Doctors Don’t Tell You owes its start to dental fillings—my dental fillings. I’d had bad teeth as a kid—the product of the average heavily processed, high-sugar, American diet—and by the time I was a teenager, there weren’t many of my teeth, other than the few at the front, that weren’t covered in metal. In my early 30s, I developed a load of unexplained, seemingly unrelated symptoms that worsened over the following months.

The Miami Korotkov Water Experiment

Last Friday, I was in Florida, host to a miracle. During my keynote speech, I planned to do another water Intention Experiment. I’d set up an Intention Experiment with the Russian physicist Konstantin Korotkov, a professor at what is now called the Russian National University of Informational Technology, Mechanics and Optics. The plan was to see if my audience of 1000 at the World Happiness Summit in Miami could, in some way, affect a bottle of water sitting in his laboratory in St. Petersburg, Russia.

In fact, the event was sold out with standing room as people crammed on top of each other listen to keynotes on finding meaning in a time of change and disruption. ‘Face it,’ wrote Egan about America, ‘We have

The miraculous rebound power of group intention

It started, by accident, with Don Berry. Don was a US Army veteran from Tullahoma, Tennessee, and he’d written into my Intention Experiment website forum in March 2007, offering to be our first human Intention Experiment. In 1981, Don had been diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis and his spine was fused, making it impossible for him to move from side to side. Even his ribs seemed frozen in place, making it difficult even to move his chest. Over the course of the years, he had had both hips replaced, and he was in constant pain. He had numerous x-rays and other
