Ken Ware - Principle of Research and Development at the Department of Neurotricional Sciences at Generations Healthy Life Centre in Emerald, Queensland, Australia and his team, have been studying and exploiting a unique form of 'Chaotic neural tremor'that Ware first discovered almost 30 years ago. There is a substantial amount of evidence to support the researchers claim - that he utilizes the tremor and its variability over time, to assist patients to recover at unprecedented time scales - from mild to critical physical and emotional diseases and disorders. These positive results contribute to The Department of Neurotricional Sciences receiving significant research and development assistance from the Australian Government.
This assistance has enabled the research into the phenomenon to significantly advance through the use of more and more sophisticated technology to harvest and analyse data. Ware and his colleagues have been encouraged by what has shown up in the initial data derived from Emg samples that were taken from patients and non-patients*. The Australian Government assistance also enables the researcher to travel to international science conferences to present and critically discuss the unique chaotic phenomenon he refers to as -'The Ware K tremor'.
The 'Ware K tremor'is basically defined as; "The unrestrained evolution of information bearing chaotic neural dynamics - that emerge in the human nervous system - when patients initiate 'very slow' movements on selected mild resistance machines, or, while doing controlled bodyweight only resistance movements."The patients are simultaneously encouraged to maintain very relaxed and composed states during the execution of the movements to optimize neural activity. This allows the tremor to reach its near to maximum amplitude and frequency. Wares initial intuition when he unintentionally noticed the tremor emerge, first within him and then in others under the same parameters, was that the tremor was revealing how poised a persons system was within its environment and the systems sensitivity to environmental stimulation.
There always appeared to be a conflict between the person's perception of self and how their system was really responding to mild environmental stimulus. Ware likened this to the analogy of the duck on the pond, where to an observer, everything seems to be quite calm, but underneath the water, the duck feet can be moving quite rapidly. The dynamics that each persons system display under the same environmental conditions and mild stimulus are unique to the individual - just like fingerprints - which is why Ware viewed the dynamics as a special language or code that was describing the present physical and emotional status of a persons system.
During the prescribed states, the Ware K tremor usually begins to emerge as 'mild oscillating neural activity' with some 'random spiking' and is usually accompanied by unjustified sensations of anxiety in patients with these types of disorders. The Ware K tremor evolves rapidly from its onset, to very visible and often confronting 'chaotic neural dynamics'. During these phases, the Ware K tremor in patients is assessed for its qualities and characteristics. This informs the therapist of the presence of - or non-presence of physical emotional disease or disorder - depending on the 'predictability' qualities of the associated neural dynamics.
Initial neural dynamics that can be described as 'very noisy' are associated to the presence of disease and disorder in the patients physical/emotional system. The real value in the discovery of the Ware K tremor though, lays in the tremors emergent properties - that are portrayed when patients are encouraged to 'let go'and allow the neural dynamics to fully evolve - providing their system with free-range expression of movement without their interception. This enables their unrestrained system to display all formats of the chaotic neural dynamics it chooses to express - while they passively maintain the prescribed parameters. This often requires a lot of patient courage, as the nonlinear dynamics and associated anxieties during these 'phase transitions' can become quite intimidating and confrontational for patients - despite the fact the treatments are otherwise pain free. Ware claims that it is the maintenance of the parameters by the patient over time that enables their system to 'self organize', disposing of excess energy, reintegrating all of its subsystems and returning itself back to preferred symptom free states.
The relaxation of symptoms always coincides with the observable positive transitions over time of the Ware K tremor - from being initially very stochastic, random and unpredictable - to displaying high levels of global organization with fractal qualities that are self simular and much more predictable. This is visually very easily observed in patients or non-patients without the use of technology. However, to validate things scientifically so that Ware K tremor therapy can gain acceptance as a new - and as the researcher labels it -"Incredibly advanced form of physical/emotional therapy that has the broadest possible applications"- the claims would have to be represented in scientific respected data and have substantial existing theoretical support.
The researcher claims that the exploitation of the Ware K tremor to quickly restore the physical and emotional integrity of patients, is significantly superior to other forms of therapy and that the predictions and results are easier to account for. He adds that Ware K tremor therapy is the ultimate expression of neural plasticity. However the existing knowledge about plasticity cannot fully explain these obvious transitions. New descriptions that apply to complex networks from Complexity science, Chaos theory and Dynamical systems science are needed to describe and explain the phenomenon.
Ware said that it was a tremendous relief for him and his team to see evidence of the positive dynamical transitions in patients systems appear in the first samples of Emg data - which seems to support his long held intuitions. Ware claims that once the team learns how to combine relative video footage with simultaneous Emg and position sampling - which will provide us with X, Y, and Z variable data, I think we will have accomplished our validation goals. Ware is also confident that the data will also revolutionize our understanding of the language and delicate physics involved with living systems interacting with their environment. Ware added that the phenomenon presents an exciting new window of research opportunities outside of its relevance to our better understanding and management of disease and disorder. The macro versions of the data that we are harvesting, can be scaled down to represent the micro scale kinetics that the macro dynamics are purely a magnification of anyway - saving the speculative use of much more expensive equipment and claustrophobic experiments to picture these domains.
The researcher presently has in excess of 800 patients using Ware K tremor therapy at Generations Healthy Life Centre and has over the years assisted tens of thousands of people with this very unique form of therapy. Generations HLC is the only centre in the world that exploits Chaos to control Chaos in the human nervous system. The researcher comments - that from the outside looking in, this appears to be counter-intuitive at first, but the more one understands the role that Chaos plays in the maintenance of our health and wellbeing - the more palatable this becomes. Healthy heartbeats are chaotic and the natural electrical rhythms of the brain are chaotic. It has been verified through intensive research, that epileptic seizures are the result of a reduction of this chaos - whereby the rhythms begin to synchronize approximately 50 minutes before a seizure occurs. The techniques that we use, expose 'the status' of the natural chaotic rhythms of the patient's nervous system. The dynamics that we observe at a macro scale are purely magnifications of the systems underlying kinetics. The patients system is very sensitively dependant on these initial condition - that is, the future of the patients system is dependant on its initial conditions. The techniques we use, perturb and alter the systems sensitive micro domains, enabling the patient to experience the positive effects of such alterations within their macro physical/emotional domains.
Ware K tremor therapy is unique in its simultaneous combination of 'bottom up' - 'top down' approach. Bottom up being the 'afferent stimulus' - or in other words - the mild stimulus to their system that is provided by the resistance exercise they are doing. And top down being the executive control over the prescribed parameters by the patient. This places the patient himself or herself in control over their physical/emotional, health and wellness future, assisting patients over time to become more robust within the micro - macro domains of their system.
Athletes wishing to dramatically enhance their performance ability also use the techniques, which prove to be verifiably superior in terms of the percentage of improvement over time the athlete accomplishes. The techniques are so vastly different to all other approaches in this highly prescriptive arena. Other more recognisable training prescriptions for athletes are usually based on linear approaches - like neat linear mathematical formulas that measure and assess progress. Ware suggests that this can be likened to picking up a calf every day after it has been born - eventually you should expect that you can pick it up when it is a bull - according to the theory of progressive resistance. Athletes discover that by utilizing Ware K tremor in the same way that other patients apply themselves - that the pathway to elite performance in naturally nonlinear.
Over the last few years, the researcher has presented the significant details and applications that the Ware K phenomenon possesses to the identification and management of disease and disorder, at 6 high profile International Science conferences**.
In 2011 the researcher formed collaboration with the Amazeen lab at the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University to study certain aspects of the Ware K tremor.
