Ultraweak electromagnetic fields, charges and fluxes constitute a basic principle of life (here intentionally termed "animated matter"). Influencing these minimal charges and fluxes locally through ultraweak fields/radiation/photon emission elicited by external sources at given wave lengths, bandwidths and field strength may constitute an important therapeutic tool in the future. The multitude of possible mediators in this context may, however, also explain the difficulty in assessing direct cause and effect chains – in other words, summary vectors may bring about very heterogenous responses in different subjects. However, the latter may be well expressed in heart rate variability and, using non-linear algorithms, these may be decoded one day and served as an important and highly sensitive diagnostic tool. Heart rate spectral analysis and DFA of HRV constitute a powerful non-invasive tool for quantifying autonomic nervous system activity and responsiveness yielding important information about sino-atrial response to autonomic input as a biophysical surrogate for complex autonomous signal proceeding and interaction. Routine application of DFA in high resolution HRV to clinical cardiovascular medicine needs further investigation. Nevertheless, it is likely to become an important procedure in cardiovascular risk stratification in the years to come. While, on the one hand, the main focus of magnetic resonance techniques has been directed to imaging and diagnostic purposes up to now, one may anticipate that, on the other hand, deeper understandig of electromagnetic/quantum physical properties of animated matter (biological and biophysical processes) would inevitably lead to the therapeutic use of defined electromagnetic- and radio-waves: Such exposure to calculable, locally induced currents may cause elicitation of specific, predictable biochemical and biophysical reactions in deeper layers of the tissue. Or, in more simple terms, understanding the coherent wave structure of the quantum physical alterations within defined time segments during biochemical/biophysical cellular reactions, one may be able to influence those directly using waves (electromagnetic/radio/photons) instead of matter (chemicals).
