Created Wound Studies

Both animals and humans have been studied by making standard wounds.  Then scientists closely observed the healing over time.  This gave us some of the best evidence about the stress and its impact on healing. They used three types of wounds to examine the stress effect on healing.  They created wounds by puncture, blister, and stripping skin barrier.


Punch biopsies were made which provided standard skin wounds for observation. Each day pictures were taken of the wound for a recorded evaluation of changes in the wound.


a memory


The first experiments involved examining stress impact on wounds involving dementia caregivers.  These were people who were related to the mentally impaired person. These people had to lovingly deal daily with the loss of memory, inappropriate emotions, and wandering and restless behavior of their loved ones.  For such caregivers stress has been noted and manifested in a heightened anxiety and depression, immune dysregulation, increased risk of heart problems, and even death.
These family caregivers therefore represents an excellent model to examine chronic stress in humans.  A 3.5 mm punch biopsy wound was made in the nondominant forearm.  The study was of 13 women caregivers and 13 sociodemographically similar non caregiving controls. The caregivers were found to take 24% longer to heal the standardized wound than matched controls.  This would tend to indicate that chronic stress delays healing.

About The Author

Dr. Bill in San Antonio, TX, holds six degrees in religious studies including a Ph.D. and a Th.D. He holds several other certificates and certifications. He has been what some call a professional student.

Raised mostly in rural south and south-central Texas, he is equally at ease on the ranch, in the woods, in meditation, or metaphysical pursuits.

He was the author of two books now out of print and several that he has not pushed for publication. He has written numerous articles in pier review journals during his time in traditional ministry.

He was invited to be on the translation committee for a modern Bible translation but declined, for philosophic differences over translation presuppositions.

His studies in comparative religions led him into an in depth study of metaphysics.

He has a knack for noticing overlapping principles in different systems. It occurred to him that when things keep showing up in many religions that these maybe the secret truth past down from our ancient past that are applicable to us today.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way. He is willing as needed to take the time to see the secrets that are ready to be opened from different directional considerations.

Dr. Bill was a traditional minister for 25 years, filling pulpits two times a week and teaching many classes.

Now he has centered his work on the metaphysical of spirituality.

Dr. Bill looks at the metaphysical and spiritual from a new eclectic perspective. This rare insight has been a boon to him and as he works to help you can be a boon to you
