The Science of Energy therapy - how body blueprint works

"Unlike much of orthodox medicine, alternative approaches to healing typically honor the wisdom and capability of the human body.  Their goal is often to support and strengthen the power healing forces already at work within us."  --  John Robbins, Reclaiming Our Health

“Energy Medicine is the medicine of the future. It has to be. It is the source of all of our health balances and imbalances. Everything else is treating symptoms.” -- Dr. Mehmet Oz

“Energy Medicine is the oldest, safest, most available, most affordable medicine there is.  Energy Medicine can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance.  Energy Medicine is the science and the art of optimizing your energies to help your body and mind function at their best.  Controlling your chemistry by managing your energies is the fast track for helping your body adapt to the challenges of the 21st century.” -- Donna Eden, author of Energy Medicine

"Wholeness or health is our natural state.  The nature of healing involves removing obstructions to this natural state and bringing individuals into alignment with themselves and their world.  Free of these obstructions, an individual's innate intelligence and self-regulating capabilities will guide them toward a state of well being."  -- Richard Carlson, Ph.D.

“In a few decades scientists have gone from a conviction that there is no such thing as an energy field around the human body, to an absolute certainty that it exists. Moreover, science is explaining the roles of energy fields in health and disease. The main reason for the recent change in outlook is the development of sensitive instruments that can detect the minute energy fields around the human body.” --  James Oschman, PhD.

"The more you move toward what makes you feel good, and move away from those things which bring you distress and pain, the healthier you will be."  --  Christine Northrup, M.D.

New Study Suggests Effectiveness of Reiki for Pain Reduction  01/14/2016 In a pilot study aimed to determine the impact of reiki therapy on the pain perception of patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA), reiki was shown to have a statistically significant effect on pain reduction. The study sample included 43 patients undergoing TKA. All subjects had unilateral TKA at the same hospital and were randomized into reiki and non-reiki groups. Pain was assessed before and after reiki therapy using a numeric rating scale. While several study limitations were noted—the small subject sample, the non-blinded nature of the study, and other external factors that may have influenced the results—the findings are promising and provide a valid groundwork for future studies. As a result of the positive feedback from patients and decreased pain ratings following reiki sessions, a reiki program was established at the hospital, and 10 nurses became trained and certified in reiki. Read the abstract here. For more information about reiki, read this past article from Massage & Bodywork magazine: "Reiki and PTSD."   The Spark in the Machine with Daniel Keown (LBP 046) Posted on August 18, 2015  by Brooke in Interviews With Geniuses, Podcast     Conversation highlights

Why do you begin your book with the question “Why can’t humans regenerate?” It gets to the core of what healing is. The question isn’t how does it occur by why can’t we? In primitive animals they can regenerate limbs.  There is this myth in western medicine that somehow doctors heal you. What they really do it allow the healing to occur.  Chinese medicine knows and has always known that the space between the cells is as important as the cells themselves. The spaces in the cells taken up by extracellular fluid- it makes up about 40% of the body- so it’s a huge amount of fluid. If you imagine your skin as a membrane that keeps everything in, and this is the fluid that bathes all of our cells, it’s also a communication medium. Yet there is no real concept of this fluid as being living and important in Western medicine.

Western medicine does not really have a philosophy of health.  Qi is the energetic blueprint from which matter is made manifest.  We are one cell that develops into trillions and trillions of cells in our perfect complex organisms- there is an energetic blueprint on how that forms, and that’s Qi.

Jing and shen are more real than genetics in terms of predictors of health and longevity. The big problem with genetics is that it is too complex. People think you have “a code” but that’s not how it works. You have multiple different codes- this is the science of epigenetics. If you are in a stressful situation you will tap into that “code” to get you through the stressful situation.

That’s an example of your shen, your spirit, affecting your jing, your matter. This plugs into why meditation is so important and why living a good life is so important- it resonates through your material body. The science of genetics is not going to go much farther, it is going to go into epigenetics. Fascia explains Qi because fascia is like the skeleton that your body is built around. It is a web and then the cells grow into this web or are knitted into it. Doctors and scientists will talk about how they can grow a heart, but they can’t actually do it. They will take the heart of a pig, strip away everything but the fascia, then inject heart stem cells- they’re kind of cheating. The Qi is like the skeleton of fascia.

Chinese medicine devotes two organs to fascia- triple burner and pericardium.  When getting the degree in Chinese medicine a lot of questions that couldn’t be answered. He couldn’t get a straight answer about the Triple Burner. so looked through an old book- Giovanni Maciocia Diagnosis in Chinese Medicine and saw the pelvis, abdomen, and chest-the triple burner described the fascia which separates it and keeps these compartments behaving like they should.

Acupuncture points are what surgeons use everyday. Google keyhole surgery and you’ll see loads of videos, the hole they are putting it into is this space within the body- they blow it up with gas so they can navigate the body. Surgeons don’t want to cause damage in the body so they go along the pathways that are already there, which are the acupuncture points.

When bad things happen in surgery it’s always because they have broken the rule of never crossing fascial planes. Cancer spreads through fascia- Cancer is just a break down of Qi. Qi is the force that keeps everything doing its right thing, and cancer is just a group of cells who decide damn you and they are going to go their own way. There are mechanisms in the immune system that are designed to mop that up, and immunotherapy is one of the most interesting fields of cancer therapy, but you also have to address the underlying Qi disturbance.

How does the body self organize? People say it’s genes, but Qi is a more accurate description. Google frog electric face to watch it in action (in resources).  What is piezoelectricity? We’re all effectively crystals. Electrical current is happening all the time within our bodies- the collagen itself appears to be piezoelectric. This is why astronauts lose bone strength. They lay down calcium and phospohorus and this creates hardness. In space there is no more gravitational stress on bones- so bone cells, the osteoblasts, feel there is no need to do anymore building and so bones get slowly reabsorbed. Within Western medicine there is a slight crisis among doctors- we have completely removed the concept of spirit or shen. As a result doctors are literally becoming dispirited.

The miracle of antibiotics is 50 yrs old- chronic diseases now are about looking deeper into society We live in turbulent times but there are a lot of good people out there. 1% of bad eggs who are now at the top of society, and we need to reclaim society and part of that is going to be making medicine simple and about people again.

       Tags: Biophotons, Human Light Particles  By Becky Barnica, Spirit Science – April 18, 2014 -
A biophoton or Ultra-weak Photon Emission, (UPE) is a kind of light particle that is emitted by all living things. Though it exists in the visible and ultraviolet spectrum, in order for us to see it, our eyes would have to be about 1,000 times more sensitive. While we can’t see them with our eyes alone, technology has given us a glimpse and what it’s shown us may have a profound impact on us all. Biophotons were first thought to be merely the byproduct of metabolic chemical reactions. That idea is being challenged with an exciting theory that claims biophotons have a much larger role to play when it comes to our physiology and quite possibly our consciousness as well.

Experiments are showing that biophotons (UPEs) can be captured and stored inside of cells and can even travel through our nervous system; suggesting that biophotons might provide a way for cells to transfer energy and communicate information. It’s has also been suggested that UPEs might even have properties which help us to visualize images.  This makes sense considering how we’re creating computers. All computers are is silicon crystal chips which we pass light through to relay 0′s and 1′s. (Light on, Light Off). The first computer was literally built with a lightbulb and these punch-cards which had holes in them, which is how we would program computers.  Today, our computers are far more advanced, and yet at the core, the electrical information we are passing through computers today is still a form of light. Now our sciences are revealing humans work the same way, and Light carries information through our brain, nervous system, and even our DNA.  Yep! Scientists are finding that our DNA is a strong source of UPEs, it communicates with and is created from light itself! It’s been observed that DNA produces extremely high biophoton emissions and has excimer laser-like properties. Excimer lasers (or exciplex lasers) are special lasers consisting pseudo-molecules that only exist in a highly excited state and emit light in the ultraviolet range.  If that wasn’t cool enough already, scientists have also discovered that not only do we emit light, we have the ability to affect it with our thoughts alone. In a recent study, participants were placed in a darkened room and asked to visualize a bright light. When they did this, they were able to increase their levels of biophoton emissions significantly, showing that our intentions have an influence on light itself!
In conclusion, Light appears to be a fundamental part of our being. It’s hard-coded into our very bodies to function directly with, and through – light. On top of that, the fact that we can affect light with our intentions alone… outstanding! It would appear those new age hippies are right when they say we are all beings of light.
