Biophotons, or ultra-weak photon emissions (UPEs), are light particles emitted from most living systems. Photons are quantum particles that have the ability to be expressed as particles, electromagnetic waves, or fields, which puts biophotons at that junction between physical matter and unmanifest quantum fields, as described in physics, or as the mind and body are described in Ayurveda.
Ayurveda, as well as many quantum theories, suggest that unified quantum fields are in fact consciousness.
In addition, Ayurveda finds the cause of all disease at the junction between consciousness (mind) and matter (body), which may now be described as the junction between quantum fields and quantum particles.
Science now tells us that biophotons are, by definition, quantum particles that can be expressed as a particle or an electromagnetic quantum field. Placing attention and intention at the junction between consciousness and matter (field and physiology), which is our biophotons, is now emerging as a theory that could explain self-healing.
