Hi All, 

I am looking to partner with game developers who are interested in collaborating to test the following hypothesis: 

Hypothesis: The immersive power of Virtual Reality can provoke a psycho-neuro immune response to combat diseases like cancer and diabetes.

Use example: In  Virtual Reality, we can relax and visualize a desired healthy state of being, free from disease. We can eradicate cancer by "zapping" tumors and abnormal cells. We can reduce diabetes by imagining healthy levels of glucose. Cholesterol and blood pressure levels can be reset by envisioning a healthy cardiovascular system. We can increase the strength of our immune system by visualizing a strong defense against infectious and disease-causing microorganisms.

Additional Expectations:

  • VR can be used as a stand-alone treatment or one that is supplemental to traditional therapies.
  • VR therapy will be most effective among people who believe strongly in the Mind-Body connection, the belief that the power of the mind can heal the body.
  • Children and adolescents may benefit the most from VR therapy because of their ease to imagine and visualize a world without boundaries

Let me know what you think. Any advice? Pleased to discuss if you are interested in learning more.
