"The next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine. It's not the mechanistic part of the joints moving. It's not the chemistry of our body. It's understanding for the first time how energy influences how we feel." Dr. Oz on "The Oprah Winfrey Show"
What is energy medicine? If I had $1 for every time I've rewritten this page, I would have ......let's see .....$3!
The first time my explanation was so technical you'd think you were reading a NASA report on the voltage requirements for a thermonuclear meltdown.
My second attempt was so very simple (ex: Q: How does it work? A: Really well!)
And I don't know what this third attempt will be because I haven't written it yet. But I'm shooting for somewhere in the middle.
If you want all the technical, scientific stuff, read some of the books on our resource list, or do research on the web. But this is my explanation of Energy Medicine (or Biofeedback) ...at least in reference to how we use it with our clients.
If you paid attention in Biology class, you know that cells are the body's basic structural unit. They are specialized and grouped to form tissues and organs. We know that diseased organs are made up of diseased cells - at a basic level. We need healthy cells!
We know the nervous system controls and coordinates all the organs and structures of the human body (cells at the most basic unit, remember). A neuron is the basic cell of the nervous system. You can thank me for not going into detail about the types of neurons and their structure and function! Suffice it to say that the neuron carry messages throughout the body via electrical activity.
Research has shown that diseases begin with stress (stress can be personal trauma or tension, a negative belief, even something stored in our cell memory). Cell memory is an important discussion, and I want you to read about it, but let me finish this thought!
You can picture stress as 'speed bumps' along your body's electrical system. These speed bumps literally interrupt the electrical activity as it attempts to cross the synapses between neurons. How can our cells be healthy or know how to perform if they don't get the neurological messages? They can't! It's as vital as coffee in the morning or diamonds on our anniversary (hoping hubby is reading this).
So this is where Energy Medicine comes in. There are many methods of stimulating our body's energy fields and eliminating 'speed bumps'. But we do it the easiest and fastest way - using a Biofeedback machine and a computer to identify stress points and correct them electrically.
NO - don't do this at home by sticking your finger in a light socket. Computer-aided Energy Medicine is a complicated scientific marvel that I can't explain except to say that:
