Colin A. Ross received his M.D. from the University of Alberta in 1981 and completed his training in psychiatry at the University of Manitoba in 1985. From 1985 to1991 he was an academic psychiatrist at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In late 1991 he moved to Dallas, where he has been since. Dr. Ross consults to Trauma Programs at hospitals in Dallas, Texas, Torrance, California and Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has published 23 books and over 150 professional papers, most of them dealing with psychological trauma and dissociation. He is a Past President of the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation, and has reviewed for many different psychiatry journals. He has spoken in Europe, North America, China, Australia, and New Zealand.
Dr. Ross's interest in energy fields began when he was a teenager. He studied the experiential, philosophical and anthropological aspects of energy fields while living in England and the Northwest Territories, Canada. These experiences are chronicled in a series of books including: Northern Studies, Portrait of Norman Wells, Literary and Anthropological Studies, Northern Canada, Adenocarcinoma and Other Poems, Songs for Two Children, and Diary of an Intern and Other Short Stories.
Dr. Ross's scientific study of human energy fields is focused on the electromagnetic field of the body. Dr. Ross believes that health and disease occur at the biological and chemical levels and also at the electromagnetic level. Taking care of oneself involves diet, exercise, sleep, attention to relationships and many other factors. Fundamentally, it is about good energy and energy balance. This is literally true, scientifically.
Dr. Ross's science of human energy fields deals with the electromagnetic controls and processes inside the body, and the electromagnetic signals between the body and the outside world. There is a wealth of electromagnetic information in the biosphere. Human beings are biological cells phones - they send and receive information in the form of electromagnetic signals all the time, using communication systems that have evolved over billions of years. These communication systems could be studied within numerous different fields including medicine, physiology, psychiatry, anthropology, and security and weapons systems development.
