How does sound work in tissues?

    Sound healing or illness is a matter of environmental context and quantized dosing. How so you ask? Light collides with proteins in our cells to become electromechanical waves like sound/phonons/solitons, and this means that sound is quantized in ways we cannot fathom yet in biology. We keep making observations in nature that sound can heal and hurt but we are not asking why it's happening by studying it more carefully. Here is a paper that allows us to peek behind the curtain. The proof is found in heat Induced sound waves that drive turbulence in plasma. This is exactly how sunlight acts in blood plasma with RBC's platelets, and WBC to do things our mitochondria in cells need them to do. Life is a non-equilibrium system and sunlight plasma keeps a cell far from any equilibrium by design to create turbulence in our blood. Blood is 93% water. Do you know what Dr. Martin Chaplin has found about water's hydrogen bonds when water is shaken? They change. Do you know what the change is?

    Non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma jets are a promising mode of treating a variety of afflictions because of how sound can alter hydrogen bonds in tissues. However, unpredictable turbulence in the plasma has hindered the consistent application of this therapy in the clinic environment. In a recent study, scientists have revealed the cause of turbulence in the plasma, paving the way for the consistent application of this approach in my clinic. https://www.sci.news/physics/heat-induced-sound-waves-turbulence-plasma-therapy-05214.html

    Plasma-induced flow instabilities in atmospheric pressure plasma jets

    Atmospheric pressure plasma jets (APPJs) have shown promising results as sources of reactive species in biomedical applications including cancer treatment, wound healing, and gene transfection.

    A region of high electron impact ionization and high electron density surrounding the powered electrode in a cathode-fall like structure.

    The gas flow in an atmospheric pressure plasma jet is fundamentally unstable to a shear instability.

    In APPJs localized heating at the powered electrode produces an acoustic wave which disturbs the shear layer between the helium and the ambient air. This results in a shear instability, which causes an unsteady flow, and generates a disturbance that propagates with the local gas speed. This could develop into plasma-induced turbulence downstream.

    Ionization waves propagating into an unsteady plume are influenced by the gas composition profile and follow the region of the highest helium concentration. The result is differences in the type and amount of reactive species which are produced, depending on whether or not the plume is laminar.

    The wave disturbs the shear layer between the He and surrounding humid air, exciting a shear instability which grows downstream with the flow and increases the mixing of the humid air into the He. The effects of the eddy-dominated flow on ionization wave (IW) propagation in an APPJ were investigated. The IW followed the regions of the highest helium concentration, resulting in an increased production of NO, HO2, and NO2.

    The reaction mechanism includes plasma and neutral chemistry for He/N2/O2/H2O.

    Interestingly, this special type of plasma called non-equilibrium atmospheric pressure plasma will hopefully be effective in healing wounds as well as combatting cancer and bacterial cells. This plasma is created via ionization of a noble gas using an electrical field.

    Wound healing is tightly regulated by redox mechanisms. This creates an exciting opportunity as we and others have identified reactive oxygen and nitrogen species to be the central components mediating biological effects of cold plasma. A directed delivery of the plasma-generated species to cells and tissues may therefore commence new therapeutic options not only in the healing of pathological wounds but also related to other redox-based diseases.

    Questions like - Can this instrument be used along the spine? How deep will the plasma go? Can it penetrate the bone of the human skull and how deep into the brain?
