Often called “The Medicine of the 21st century” Energetic Medicine in many forms is rapidly gaining acceptance in the West. As technology develops new findings validate what has been know and practiced for centuries – that, in essence, our body is energy, rapidly moving at many different frequencies. In his groundbreaking book, Vibrational Medicine, Dr. Richard Gerber states, “The Einstein paradigm as applied to vibrational medicine sees human beings as networks of complex energy fields that interface with physical/cellular systems. The recognition that all matter is energy forms the foundation for understanding how human beings can be considered dynamic energy systems.”
Since the development of electricity in the last century technical knowledge grows exponentially day by day. In medicine, the development of x-rays to see inside the human body opened the way for further development of these rays for therapeutic purposes as well as leading to the understanding and treatment of human beings from an energetic perspective.
In the 1960’s, Dr. Robert O. Bekker, an orthopaedic surgeon, studied a salamander’s ability to a to re-grow a lost limb as compared with a frog who cannot. He found that it was due to a difference in the polarity of the cells in the “current of injury” (electric potential measured across the stump of an amputated limb). By applying similar electro stimulation to the stump of an amputated limb of a frog, the frog was able to regenerate a new limb. His finding resulted in the widespread use of electro-magnetic devises to accelerate the healing of bone fractures.
As technology developed, so did its medical applications. The CAT Scan (Computerized Axial Tomography) sends a thin beam of x-rays into the subject. A computer mathematically analyses the data and reconstructs an image of a cross section of the human body allowing the view of soft tissue as well as the denser bones that were visible using convention x-rays. In the 1980’s the MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) was developed. “The key principle behind magnetic resonance imaging is the fact that the atoms under study (hydrogen) are being stimulated by the transfer of an energy of a specific frequency.”
Energetic Medicine is based on the principles of quantum physics rather than on the Newtonian approach which deals primarily with molecular interactions. “Vibrational medicine attempts to interface with primary subtle energetic fields that underlie and contribute to the functional expression of the physical body.”
Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) a German physician, dissatisfied with the medical practices of his day founded a system of healing based on the principle of “like cures like”. He successfully treated his patients by using herbs that brought on symptoms in a healthy person that were similar to those his patient suffered. After experimenting with different dosages of these substances he discovered that the greater the dilution, the more effective the medication. Often the remedy was diluted to the point that there was not a single molecule of the herb present. According to the Newtonian model, such a medicine would have no effect on the human body. However, as anyone who has taken homeopathic remedies can attest, they do indeed work. If one looks at the process from an energetic point of view one can see why.
