Forum for a New Paradigm in Science and Medicine
“For the first time in the history of medicine, the missing subject of the rules of integrating knowledge is being introduced in its midst.” Savely Yurkovsky, M.D., 2010
About the Living Systems Revolution
These are exciting times. We are witnessing a grand shift in perspective. It is the greatest scientific breakthrough in over four centuries.
What if “incurable” medical conditions such as ALS, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, chronic Lyme disease, Crohn’s disease, prostate disease, cystic fibrosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, systemic lupus, heavy metal poisoning, a dicky heart, a weak lung, a cirrhotic liver, a toxic brain or a host of others were both curable and preventable? A modern revolution in outlook and clinical practice is proving just that may be the case.3, 4, 6, 9
The Greatest Scientific Breakthrough Since the Copernican Revolution
In the 16th and 17th centuries, European civilization underwent a radical shift known as the Copernican Revolution. It all began when a Pole named Copernicus proposed that the Earth wasn’t the centre of the universe after all – and that the Sun didn’t revolve around the Earth – claiming that the reverse was true. Over the next two and a half centuries, following this radical shift in perspective, the birth of modern science took place.
There have been many great scientific breakthroughs since that time, yet we have not approached another radical shift in perspective as dramatic and all-encompassing as that one – until now.1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 10, 13
Once again, an idea is infiltrating our civilization.
What’s It All About?
Both the parts and the whole take up our interest.1, 2 Layers within layers. Both holism and reductionism have been combined in a single unified model for the first time in history. This is what we call the science of perspective.
Insights into this process of dynamic interrelation are revolutionizing science, and defining the roots and shoots of a new epoch of human history. This is the Living Systems Revolution. [more about this]
What Has This Got To Do With Medicine?
As human beings we share one thing in common with our internal organs, tissues, cells, cellular organelles like DNA, and even individual molecules and atoms within them. Even more amazingly, we share this same one thing in common with all other human beings, as well as the animals, plants, families, communities, nations, societies, civilizations, planet, solar system and Milky Way that surround us and fill our lives.1-4, 6, 11, 26, 27
We are all living systems, sharing the same properties common to all living systems: intelligent, dynamic, open, complex, nonlinear, individual, purposive, equilibrium-seeking, identity-driven, diverse, inter-connected, inter-dependent and continually interacting.3, 4, 6-8, 11 This process occurs through a constant ‘buzz’ of information transfer, from one information field to another. Modern physics research strongly suggests that all of reality boils down to this vast unified web or field of quantum information waves.3, 4, 6, 10, 13, 22-24, 29-30 [more about this]
Applying these insights to medicine offers stunning revelations that transform clinical practice like never before. This is Living Systems Medicine. [more about this]
What Happens When We Apply This Clinically?
If we treat the bone marrow, it affects the brain. If we ignore the spleen, the lungs may suffer. If we detoxify the bowel, heavy metals may in the meantime be spreading into the heart. If we treat an infection in the bladder, the adrenal cortex may be giving out. This constant interactiveness makes the practice of medicine both complex and exciting, and never before has a model been presented which can finally keep track of it all.
Implementing Living Systems Medicine clinically involves not ignoring this complexity by cherry-picking the facts – but instead a means to narrow it down to a highly effective treatment plan based on the properties of living systems. This is Field Control Therapy.® 3-9 [more about this]

Let this be a wake-up call for all of us. We find ourselves in the midst of The Living Systems Revolution – a change not centred around a political or any other single system – but a collective shift taking place inside our own minds. This is a transformation of our fundamental outlook on all types of system – and on life itself as a series of systems within systems.11, 1, 2, 36, 25, 37
As our outlook changes, both within the scientific community and outside it, so too will society around us, but our focus remains primarily on the shift in perspective.
The questions are: Can we keep up with it? And will you join us here at the cutting edge? [more about this]
We hope you enjoy these web resources and find them useful!
The Gathering of the Storm
The revolution of which we speak is not originating in medicine – but medicine is benefiting from it. Think of it, then, as being like a computer “download” where science is on the server, and medicine at the local computer.
We are once again at a crossroads of history, as people once were in the days of Copernicus. This time, the idea is not about Earth’s place in the universe, or its position relative to the sun. Instead, it’s about anything’s place in relation to anything else – or, in other words, systems science. This science is, better said, a group of sciences, with branches in practically every area of research. It devotes its study not only to things but also to the interaction between things,2 and therefore the science of perspective.
Ever since the time of Albert Einstein, perspective has been back on the agenda in the biggest way since the days of Copernicus and Galileo. Finally, in 1945 Dr Ludwig von Bertalanffy 2 termed this science of perspective “General System Theory,” which since then has continued to evolve and branch out into the many modern applications of systems science.27
This breathtaking new vision of life has been pushing the frontiers of medicine and science well beyond what we thought possible. Suddenly, nothing and no one is perceived in isolation, but as part of a wider perspective in which all of the inter-connected and inter-dependent systems around and within us are constantly and dynamically mingling, relating with each other and influencing each other’s state. [more about this]
In the years leading up to 1999, Savely Yurkovsky, M.D., applied systems science to modern medicine. The spectacular result was Field Control Therapy (FCT).®
Field Control Therapy
Below we will briefly summarize the specifics of what Field Control Therapy involves. The key point from the outset is that it boils down to a systematic scientific approach to medicine – addressing concrete disease factors of high meaning to the system. This is in stark contrast to most other prevailing approaches to medicine, conventional and alternative, which tend to view diseases in fragments and base their clinical decisions on these fragmented, isolated findings.3-9, 28
This includes the underlying causes of common issues such as impaired immunity, disrupted endocrine function, poor elimination of toxins,28 blocked channels, neurological damage, heightened susceptibility, activated genes, accelerated ageing, poor resilience to trauma, unresolved inflammation and allergies.
All of these and other symptoms, as forms of ‘system strain,’ are closely linked to individual organs and tissues. These form the precise focus of sequential treatment.
A brilliant and paradigm-shattering new application of existing fields of medicine is used. This draws from unique forms of ‘homeopathy,’ ‘isopathy,’ ‘sarcodes’ and other key measures, centred on treatment of the internal organs according to priority assessment. All of these terms and methods are explained in greater depth throughout this website.
A lifestyle assessment is also conducted, and changes may be recommended if necessary. This could for example in some cases include changes in the sleeping area, diet, electricity usage habits, possible use of ‘Memon’ technology for reduction of electrosmog stress, and minimization of ongoing occupational or other toxic exposures.3-9
Sometimes the services of holistic or biological dentists, conventional doctors and other practitioners may also be recommended. FCT practitioners have been described as being “the total body practitioners or family medicine GPs of integrative healthcare.” [more about this]
What Do We Mean By “Causes” of Disease?
Common causes of disease which are found and resolved in the FCT approach may include mercury toxicity,15-10, 31-33, 39 other key toxins,34-35 effects of electrosmog from harmful electromagnetic fields,21 ionizing radiation, candida overgrowth, parasites, bacteria, other infections, side effects of medical treatments such as antibiotics, dental fillings and vaccines (i.e., “iatrogenesis”),14, 38 emotional traumas, physical injuries, and lifestyle factors such as environmental, emotional, energetic, spiritual, social and nutritional. In essence, it could be any of these – or anything else – if determined to be central factors in a case according to a truth-based living systems analysis. [more about this]
Most importantly of all, the clinical application of this causative approach to real-life problems requires a method known as Decision Science 12 – adopted in Field Control Therapy – to enable effective prioritization of actions that will arrive at the true nature of the problem, its causes and solutions. Decision Science is – as it sounds – the scientific approach to how clinicians decide what to treat in patients. Guesswork is no longer needed – medical decision-making can become a science that we can all learn!
This makes Field Control Therapy the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ approach to medicine, as clinical practice centres around medical detective work. [more about this]
Why Are So Many People Sick? Is It Necessary?
We are being forced to re-think everything we thought we knew about health and disease.
Incredibly, although ageing and death are a necessary part of life, chronic sickness is not!
While we are alive, health is our birth-right and given the right input and care, we are made up in such a way that it is achievable at least most of the time – an astounding new vision which turns the tables on the appalling rates of degenerative illness in the modern industrialized world.
Life is here to be enjoyed and savoured by people healthy in body and mind, and need not be squandered due to the suffering generated by illnesses ravaging the population. As each of us grows old and eventually dies, it should be in the same way a well-driven car slows to a smooth and painless stop at the traffic lights – after an enjoyable and fulfilling drive.
Instead, millions of people are living lives blighted by chronic illness. But the solution is now at hand.
This exciting achievement has moved us to establish this website inspired by Dr Yurkovsky’s extraordinary clinical and scientific work, and the wider Living Systems Revolution of which it forms part. [more about this]
Other Living Systems Applications
This is also a hub leading on to a network of interrelated websites, each tackling a different topic or aspect, but all sharing the common thread of systems science. The solutions to the problems humanity faces in the world today are both individual and collective in their application, both medical and inter-personal.
Hence the simultaneous focus and wide scope of this website. Health issues are the core theme and anchor – the flavour of most of this website – but then we also allow ourselves to venture into other aspects of the Living Systems Revolution.
That includes a humanitarian think tank we have founded, called The Wisdom Foundation, with an arm – “Brave New Horizons” – that is focused on scientific innovation. These were established on the basis of the systems ideas portrayed throughout this website. A range of medical and other projects are already underway, aimed at hastening the transformation of modern civilization. [more about this]
Another systems application linked from this site, for those interested, is in the field of meditation. The living systems approach to meditation is named Tibetan Pulsing Yoga. Providing a modern approach to spiritual practice and personal development, it is both a system of yoga practice and a complex research discipline with many aspects and branches. It was founded in its modern form by an American, Shantam Dheeraj; in his systematic approach to meditation practice, he evolved a detailed systems map of profound scope and then applied it to multiple fields. Just as Dr Yurkovsky has turned medicine into a precise, systematic approach, it could likewise be said that Shantam Dheeraj achieved that for meditation. [more about this]
