What is energy medicine? How is it different from Allopathic/ Western Medicine? What benefits does it offer for those that cannot gain from conventional medicine?
In order to answer these, first we must understand that we are multi-sensory, and render obsolete the belief that we have only 5 senses. We know now that one of the central truths of life is that our thoughts and emotions have creative authority over cell tissue. This is evidenced in many studies conducted by scientific and medical professionals seeking to answer some big questions about how we function, why and how we get disease.
Let’s start with Fritz-Albert Popp a scientist who in 1930s rediscovered that at the center of our cells is a photon. A photon is a unit of light energy. Therefore we are biophotonic beings. We are light beings. We are energy first.
Then there is the work of Candace Pert. PhD. is a doctor of pharmacology and a research scientist. More than 20 years ago, she published Molecules of Emotion. This work has been regarded as outstanding findings by Deepak Chopra who wrote the forward for her book. Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Michael Lumpkin, Dr Dean Ornish and more. Dr. Pert states
“The chemicals that are running our body and our brain are the same chemicals that are involved in emotion. And that says to me that . . . we’d better pay more attention to emotions with respect to health.” She goes further to say ” My research has shown me that when emotions are expressed-which is to say that the biochemicals that are the substrate of emotion are flowing freely-all systems are united and made whole. When emotions are repressed, denied, not allowed to be whatever they may be, our network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital feel-good, unifying chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior.”Candance Pert, PhD. – The Molecules of Emotion
There’s the work of Dr. Bruce Lipton. He started as a cell biologist. In 1968 he starting cloning stem cells. What he discovered was that – the fate of the cells was controlled by the environment.
” There is not one function in the human body that is not already present in every single cell. For example, you have various systems: digestive, respiratory, excretory, musculoskeletal, endocrine, reproductive, a nervous system and an immune system but every one of those functions exists in every one of your cells. My cells were like little television sets with antennas and I was the broadcast that controlled the readout of the genes. I was actually programming my cells. Just like a single cell, the character of our lives is determined not by our genes but by our responses to the environmental signals…”Bruce H. Lipton, PhD. -The Biology of Belief
There is the work of Masaru Emoto. He was a water scientist who in 2001 published his first book on the results of his experiments on water.
“In the process of falling to the earth, seeping into the ground, and then emerging, water obtain information from various minerals and becomes wise.” “Water records information, and while circulating throughout the earth distributes information. This water sent from the universe is full of the information of life…
“The vibrations created by irritation are equivalent to those of mercury, by anger to those of lead, and by sadness and sorrow to those of aluminum. In the same way, uncertainty is related to cadmium, despair to steel, and stress to zinc.”Massamura Emoto.
