What are CAMS energy-based healing devices and how do they work?


What are CAMS units?

CAMS (Crosby Advanced Medical Systems) units are energy-based healing devices that treat the underlying cause of pain and inflammation at the cellular level. Thousands of healthcare practitioners and patients worldwide rely on this safe, effective 21st century alternative to drugs, needles and surgery.

CAMS units deliver:

  • No-touch treatment in as little as 10 seconds
  • Relief of pain and inflammation
  • No harmful side-effects
  • Nearly immediate results

And new CAMS Blue Light technologyalso kills harmful microbes—including the bacteria that cause gum disease, acne and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).


How do CAMS devices work?

The elements of CAMS technology are found in nature:

  • Earth’s resonant frequency
  • Nature’s most abundant mineral, quartz
  • Scalar energy, the underlying force of the universe

“Today, we are beginning to understand that all living matter is made of energy and that on every level, the human body is composed of multiple, interacting energy fields,” says CAMS Founder and CEO Charles Crosby, DO, MD(H).

The earth and humans share a resonant frequency

CAMS technology is based on the physics principle that the earth—and the average alpha brain wave in the human body—resonate at a frequency of 7.83 vibrations per second (or 7.83 hertz). This knowledge dates back to the 1950s and is widely referred to as the Schumann Resonance Theory, named after German physics professor Winfried Otto Schumann.

“Today, we recognize that the Schumann resonance is essentially a ‘tuning fork’ for all life,” Dr. Crosby explains.

“Supplying the basic Schumann frequency opens the door to the entire range of supportive frequencies that sustain health and well-being,” he adds. “As such, the Schumann resonance is the foundation for healing.”
Inflammation disturbs the body’s resonant frequency

Inflammation—characterized by pain, swelling and redness—lies at the root of disease. When inflammation occurs, the normal electrical charge on the cell membrane becomes adulterated. This unhealthy state makes it difficult for the cells to maintain and defend themselves. When areas of the body experience inflammation, pain and dysfunction, they vibrate at a higher, or lower, level than the resonant frequency of 7.83 hertz.

CAMS devices restore the resonant frequency

A CAMS treatment works at the cellular level by restoring the resonant frequency in the area being treated. This treatment reduces pain and inflammation and helps restore healthy function.

“Amplification and focusing of the earth’s Schumann resonance are major factors in the design and function of CAMS technology,” Dr. Crosby explains.


What is the role of electrical energy in CAMS technology?

Electrical energy is the key to healing
In Pain Management: A Practical Guide for Clinicians (CRC Press, 2002 edition), Daniel L. Kirsch, PhD, states, “In the 1960s, Robert O. Becker, MD, demonstrated that electrical current is the trigger that stimulates healing, growth and regeneration in all living organisms.” Becker found that trauma affects the electrical potential of cells in damaged tissues, and that injury repair occurs in response to signals from an electrical control system—a system that becomes less efficient as we age.

Quartz crystals have electrical properties
Quartz crystals have long been known to be strongly piezoelectric, that is, able to generate a voltage in response to applied electrical or mechanical stress. This piezoelectric property allows quartz crystals to produce a nearly constant output frequency.

“The quartz crystals in a CAMS device convert electricity or light into coherent scalar energy that resonates at the Schumann resonance,” Dr. Crosby explains.

Each person is bio-electrically unique
Although the normal human energy frequency is 7.83 vibrations per second, there are certain electrical phenomena that make each person unique. These individual differences require each CAMS unit to be specifically attuned to the one person who will be using it.

When you order a CAMS device, you will be asked to send a photo of yourself; Dr. Crosby will use this picture to attune the quartz crystal in the CAMS unit to your own personal energy. Like tuning your radio to the frequency of the station you want to listen to, the CAMS unit needs to lock into the right channel to receive your message of specific healing intent when you use the unit.

CAMS works in sync with your healing intentions
Attuning a CAMS unit to an individual user—whether clinician or patient—is essential because CAMS is programmed by the thoughts and intentions of the user. When you turn on the CAMS unit, you program it by exhaling forcefully through the nose while visualizing the problem area of the body you wish to be healed. (For details, see How to use CAMS devices.)


What are CAMS treatments like?

CAMS units deliver no-touch treatments 

CAMS treatments are painless, and the CAMS device never touches the body. The only sensation a person will typically perceive is a mild warming or tingling in the area being treated.

Treatments take as little as 10 seconds
The duration of a CAMS treatment depends on the unit you choose:

  • The Handheld LaserCam take as little as 10-15 seconds.
  • The TensCam/RJV Jr. and Personal Tuner take two minutes.

For more information, see How to use CAMS devices.

Longer treatments can be administered
When used in clinical practice, CAMS devices can be used as needed for longer treatments:

For details on longer treatments, please see Using CAMS in clinical practice.


How safe is CAMS?
Each day, an estimated 20,000 CAMS treatments are performed on individuals throughout the world. There have been no reported complications. A double-blind, placebo-controlled study with 100 volunteers performed at the University of Central Florida in 2002 also resulted in no reported complications.
