Expert Author

Christina Ross, PhD, is a Board Certified Polarity Practitioner (BCPP), Registered Polarity Educator (RPE), and Certified Energy Medicine Practitioner (CEMP), who has earned bachelor’s degrees in both psychology and physics from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.   She earned her PhD in Energy Medicine from Akamai University, with a research appointment to the Wake Forest School of Medicine’s Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM), through the Wake Forest Center for Integrative Medicine (WFCIM).  Her dissertation involved research studying the therapeutic effects of pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) on inflammation/immune biomarkers.  She currently works as a biophysicist at the WFIRM, studying the effects of low-frequency PEMF on cell communication and signal transduction. In particular, she studies the effect of PEMF and adult stem cells known as mesenchymal stromal cell (MSC) therapies on neuro-inflammation and nerve regeneration in peripheral nerve injury.   She has published articles in internationally known medical journals: Journal of Inflammation Research, Stem Cell Research, Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, Wound Repair and Regeneration, Journal of Science and Applications in Biomedicine, Organogenesis, Biomaterials, World Journal of Gastroenterology, Expert Opinion on Biological Therapies, Digestive and Liver Disease, Integrative Medical Insights, Biotechnology Progress, Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, and JSM Biotechnology & Biomedical Engineering. She has also authored a book on Energy Medicine titled, Etiology: How to Detect Disease in your Energy Field Before it Manifests in your Body, and a book chapter titled, “Energy Medicine” for the book Alternative Medicine.

Mechanisms of Extra Low Frequency Electromagnetic Field (ELF-EMF) on Human Bone Marrow Stem_Stromal Cell (hBM-MSC) Differentiation by Christina L. Ross, PhD

Click to Download PDF Abstract The differentiation of human Bone-Marrow Mesenchymal Stem/Stromal Cells (hBM-MSCs) is dependent on exposure to biophysical and biochemical stimuli that favor early and rapid activation of the in vivo tissue repair process [1]. Exposure to exogenous stimuli such as an electromagnetic field (EMF) can promote differentiation ...

Integral Healthcare The Benefits and Challenges of Integrating Complementary and Alternative Medicine with a Conventional Healthcare Practice by Christina L. Ross

Abstract: Today’s medicine is in the midst of an undeniable crisis. Calls to reform healthcare are in the forefront of economic and political discussions worldwide. Economic pressures reduce the amount of time physicians can spend with patients contributing to burnout among medical staff and endangering the patient iatrogenically. Politicians are ...

The Use of Magnetic Field for the Reduction of Inflammation: A Review of the History and Therapeutic Results Christina L. Ross; Benjamin S. Harrison, PhD

ABSTRACT Interest in magnetic field (MF) therapy has increased rap-idly in recent years as research shows that this noninva-sive, cost-effective modality might be safer than drugs and surgical procedures for reduction of inflammation. Inflammation is a signal-mediated response to tissue inva-sion by pathogens or toxins or to injury or physical ...

The regenerative effects of electromagnetic field on spinal cord injury Christina L. Ross, Ishaq Syed, Thomas L. Smith & Benjamin S. Harrison

ABSTRACT Traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) is typically the result of direct mechanical impact to the spine, leading to fracture and/or dislocation of the vertebrae along with damage to the surrounding soft tissues. Injury to the spinal cord results in disruption of axonal transmission of signals. This primary trauma causes ...

Energy Medicine by Christina L. Ross, PhD

1. Introduction Energy medicine (EM) is medicine based on physics instead of biochemistry. Energy medi‐ cine works with subtle forms of energy known as chi or prana that exist in and around the human body. EM treats with the understanding that all illness results from disturbances in this energy known ...
