MORA

Pseudomedicine
A device developed by F Morrel, MD, which is said to receive electromagnetic waves directly from a person’s body, manipulate the aberrant waveforms, normalise them by increasing or decreasing their amplitude and then return the “treated” normal waves to the individual, thereby effecting a cure. The device is said to be effective for headaches, skin diseases, muscle pain and circulatory defects; it may be used for colour therapy, and in combination with homeopathic remedies.
