Carey A. Reams (1903-1985) was a man ahead of his time. Trained in mathematics, biophysics, and biochemistry he made many discoveries in the fields of human health, plant growth, energetics, animal health, and soil restoration. These findings were later codified in an overall view of life and energy known as Reams Biological Theory of Ionization (RBTI). Reams summarized his beliefs by saying:
"God is the basis of life, life is the basis of energy, energy is the basis of matter."
Throughout more than 5 decades Reams worked as a consultant, researcher, and lecturer. A significant milestone in Reams' life occurred in 1931. During a period of prayer and fasting Reams received a divine revelation of the biochemistry numbers for humans in perfect health.
Foundational for Reams' life and success as a scientist was his faith in God. As a disciple of Jesus he sought to live his life according to the biblical standard. He began every day of lectures with morning devotions and always encouraged his students to follow biblical precepts. Reams emphasized that the major distinction between Christianity and any other religion is Christ's empty grave. No other religion has an empty grave.
As a mathematical genius Reams was very familiar with Einstein's energy equation and understood its significance. During his many years of friendship with Albert Einstein he once chided him saying 'you know how to take matter apart but you don't know how to put it back together again.' Einstein immediately shot back that figuring out how to do that was a job for Reams.
According to Reams, "Ionization is God's laws putting things together and taking them apart ion by ion." Dave Larson, a student of Reams and Skow, put it this way; "Biological Ionization is the study of how energy becomes matter and how matter becomes energy on a continuous basis." According to Reams, RBTI offers a way to measure the energy in elements, compounds, and biological systems including humans. The loss of energy in humans is the beginning of disease. More information on this subject can be learned by reading Reams' book "Choose Life or Death," available from Pike Agri-Lab Supplies.
Ream's contribution to agriculture was just as significant as his contribution to human health. Reams taught that the functional foundation of nature is electromagnetic and that the chemistry of nature is secondary. Reams applied this concept to plant growth. He maintained that plants grow through the process of ionization-similar to an electroplating machine. Likewise soil fertilization is done from an electromagnetic perspective as well. This is done by balancing the positive and negative charges. Fertilizers are viewed as energy packages used to build and balance the electromagnetic field of the soil. The minerals in the fertilizers carry specific energy forms. These energy packages (fertilizers) react with opposing charges in the soil during the process of synchronization. This synchronization of opposite charges provides a release of energy, which drives plant growth. More information on RBTI as it relates to agriculture can be learned by attending a Reams' Basic Soil Seminar.
International Ag Labs continues to carry on the legacy and teaching of Carey Reams as it relates to plants and soil. In addition to an annual soil seminar we also provide Lab Analysis and crop consulting.
Headed by Dan Skow D.V.M., Wendell Owens, and Jon Frank, International Ag Labs strives to look at the whole picture when we do fertility recommendations. This includes looking at nutrient balancing and soil biology through the eyes of electro-magnetism. This vantage point allows us to see the health of the whole forest and not just minute details about a few trees so to speak.
