Default Energy Medicine - the new Western Frontier?

Energy Medicine - the new Western Frontier? even if a very OLD part of Eastern Medicine?

from Dr. Oz - who explains things very well, imo. and seems to always be open to learning something new. in this segment, he interviews Dr. Jim Oschman..

warning... Dr. Oz is a regular MD.

Energy Medicine

Quote:
According to Dr. Jim Oschman, a leader in the field of energy medicine, modern research science is beginning to shed light on the role of natural "energy forces" within the human body that were previously thought to be inexplicable. "Energy medicine is medicine based on the appreciation that living systems have energy fields inside of them and around them and that these fields play important roles in physiology, regulatory biology [and] regulating processes that are going on inside the organism," Dr. Oschman says.

Dr. Oz talks with Dr. Oschman about the fundamentals of energy medicine and how scientists are measuring the ways in which various forms of energy interact with living systems. They also discuss alternative healing techniques, such as acupuncture and Reiki, which Dr. Oschman says are also measurably demonstrating how energy can be channeled to improve the body's health and well-being.

Energy Medicine

Quote:
When we talk about energy, we are really referring to two kinds of energy fields: veritable energy fields, which can be measured, and putative energy fields, which cannot be measured with our current technology.

Veritable energy fields include things like vibrational energy (sound), and electromagnetic forces such as visible light, magnetism and monochromatic radiation (lasers). There are many well established uses of measurable energy fields in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Some of these include: magnetic resonance imaging, laser eye correction surgery, cardiac pacemakers, radiation therapy and UV light therapies for psoriasis and seasonal affective disorder. There are also a few less researched therapies that use this type of energy. Magnetic therapy involves the use of magnets, which are placed on the body to relieve pain. Sound energy therapy (also sometimes known as vibrational therapy) involves using tuning forks to create certain healing sound frequencies that resonate with the body to promote healing. Music therapy is another type of sound energy therapy—listening to music has been shown to lower blood pressure and to reduce pain and anxiety.

Most frequently, the term energy medicine refers to techniques that involve the putative energy fields. Although it has not yet been able to be measured by conventional methods, therapists who work with this type of energy claim that they can see it with their own eyes or that they can sense it with their hands or bodies. The field of energy medicine involving putative energy fields is based on the fundamental premise that all physical objects (bodies) and psychological processes (thoughts, emotions, beliefs and attitudes) are expressions of energy. Therefore, all bodies are believed to be infused with a "subtle" energy or life force. This life force is known by a variety of terms corresponding to different traditions. In traditional Chinese medicine it is called qi (pronounced CHEE), in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is called spirit, and in Ayurvedic medicine it is represented in the doshas.

In therapies involving this subtle energy field, it is believed that health is determined by the overall flow and balance of a person's vital life force energy. Imbalances or blockages in the natural flow of the subtle energy fields in the body cause illness. Therapies such as acupuncture and acupressure are all believed to act by correcting imbalances in the flow of subtle energy along the meridians, or energy channels. In therapies such as healing touch, Reiki and even prayer, a healer is believed to emit or transmit the vital energy to a recipient as a way to restore health.
this is from Oprah's show... and I know that everyone says.. oh boy.. Oprah, what a reference.

but, Oprah has a HUGE audience, and she has Dr. Oz on regularly every monday (I think), and Dr. Oz talks a lot about alternative medicine, and how he uses it in his practice.

Energy medicine - acupuncture and homeopathy.

Ever see Kirlian photos of before and after applications of a constitutional homeopathic remedy? Impressive.

Hmmm, don't remember where I saw it now. Will have to think about it. I would say it was about 5 years ago that I saw them.

Went looking to see if I could find them but I didn't. I did find these though, although all not directly related to homeopathy.

on this site the photos didn't come up. Just a little blue question mark where I assume photos should be. Does anyone see photos here? I'm thinking that my Mac does not load this site properly.

I don't know what to make of Kirlian photography. I think it is beautiful (the photos of the foot must be very simple Kirlian photos). but.. I saw a Kirlian photo of a quarter.. and thought, how much energy is in a quarter? beautiful picture, though:




but if a Kirlian photo shows differences before and after a treatment of some sort.. then that has possibilities.

evidently it isn't that hard to do Kirlian photography. Maybe it might be worth taking up for someone that practices homeopathy or acupuncture regularly to see if anything shows in photos taken before and after treatment.

Kirlian Photography: building your own equipment

They aren't there. I looked up the photos directly, and I get 404.

so, it is not your MAC.

Here's some interesting stuff I found.

This one has a video that explains kirlian photography and is quite interesting. Seems that lots of research is being done in different halls of science around the world.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nze9I...eature=related
in this one you see it not just in photos but in active filming

And on the page to the right are other kirlian videos

I personally practice something called Quantum Touch - www.quantumtouch.com

QT uses a person's energy to help accelerate healing. With taught practices to do this, one can help someone heal themselves (the patient heals, not the practitioner). It is most effective on new injuries, like a burn or cut.

The whole basis of energy belief for QT practitioners is that the body knows how to heal itself naturally. If you cut yourself, the body clots the blood and forms a scab. It heals by itself without aid. Quantum touch is the method of accessing your personal energy to accelerate that natural process.

I wrote a post about it here

I recently met a hospice nurse that studied quantum touch in San Francisco. She swears by it for pain reduction with her patients.

It is very similar to what I learned from a Religious Science minister many years ago.

Yes the quantum touch has been scientifically tested and shown to work. I have a book on it I haven't read all of it, The Energy Healing Experiments, by Schwartz, but we can use our energy to affect others via the hands or whatever.

Default Energy Healing... that's something very very new

Its very interesting to read this blog, becasue I have been involved with many kinds if healing over the years... almost 25 years to be precise. At first I was a recipient, then I became a provider. But all those early years, niw I see, I was blind. I didn't know what was true, I just kept on trying to do what everyone else told me was true, based on some quasi scientific ideas.

The truth is, if something is really true, it must be true all the time, again and again. It must be simple, direct and effective. I often found the moire simple something the better the effect.

So, it was a great thing when one day I discovered the real healing power of energy, as is talked about here - *link removed* - on this special informative place. If you want to get to the roots of problems, you need to deal directly with the core energy of someone... and the messages they hold inside... thats something very very new and in time, yes science will be able to prove it. And its something that the human intellect just cannot and shouldnt try and manipulate. The more natural something is, the more powerful.

Today, we have a choice. Lets make the right one! The one that sets us free from all artiface and allows us to enjoy the benefits of a pure, healthy, natural, peaceful, happy and creative life...

Default Energy healing 2

Whilst I fully support the medical and scientific attempts to justify alternative healing systems, I just think sometimes we loose touch of whats really important. Like smiling! Being happy... having faith in life itself and the power of energy to heal us. Of course, most people need help to connect to this energy, but I just feel that we need to move beyond the notion of the healer and the client... both need healing, and the most important healing is of consciousness and awareness. We need education... then we will never get sick, and heal very quickly what is out of balance. We need to learn how to be happy, peaceful and healthy. Why, because no one ever taught us at school. If your energy is blocked, better you learn how to unblock it then have to replky on someone or thing all the time.

Thats the greatest healing... when you simply allow it to happen! I hope that everyone will open up to discuss not whether we can show it with science, but how we can take it to more and more people... the truth... you don't have to ever be sick... EVER. But you must live according to natural laws... the new laws... that say... BE HAPPY, BE NATURAL, BE HEALTHY, BE PEACEFUL, BE CREATIVE, BE WISE, BE OPEN, BE SINCERE... and much more. OK, I hope we can be positive too!
