of Energetic Medicine
Every part, organ, and function in the human body is run by electricity.
It's a very subtle energy, but nothing would work without it. Muscles
couldn't flex or extend, hearts couldn't pump, livers couldn't clean,
bladders couldn't empty, blood couldn't flow or even hold oxygen,
eyes couldn't dilate, hair couldn't grow...nothing would work.
subtle" electrical system includes those bodies that we can't
see, the etheric, emotional and mental bodies that surround the
physical body. We would not be able to think or reason and could
not express emotions, as well, without this subtle flow of electrical
is based on this fact that we humans are an intricate network of
energy systems that are remarkably complex and exquisitely coordinated.
This is now accessable information. The energy carried by these
systems flows through each cell of our body. The purpose of that
energy is to communicate back and forth with all parts and organs
of the body. Ask the right question, get the right answer. What,
where, when, how, and how much are all answers the body knows and
can readily reveal.
Symptoms or Causes?
Why should you be interested in Energetic Medicine as an option
and compliment to conventional Allopathic medicine? Energetic Medicine
is based on the belief that our bodies, mind, emotions, and spirits
function as an interdependent system - and that the health (or illness)
of one part can affect the well-being and vitality of every other
So rather than
just dealing with a symptom or one affected body part, Energetic
Medicine looks at the whole person. Why? Because many times the
symptom is just the outward, physical manifestation of the actual
and diseases are caused by emotional or stess-related issues. To
just treat the symptom, as most conventional medicine does today,
doesn't address or solve the core problem. Thus the symptom may

for traditional western medicine is to wait for physical symptoms

and reforms to this approach.

up in our energies long before manifesting itself in physical symptoms.
It is much easier to treat an impalance while it is still only a
disturbance in the energy field than to wait until it has progressed
into a physical symptom that is far more traumatic, entrenched,
and difficult to reverse. Many people would call this Preventive
Medicine and it is a major part of the "Mission Statement"
of most Energetic Medicine practitioners.
practitioners can use various techniques to reestablish proper energy
flow through the body and put the body's systems back in balance
before a physical symptom appears. These preemptive methods mean
that potential problems can be stopped before they appear as far
more difficult to treat illnesses or diseases.
If a physical
symptom has already appeared, Energetic Medicine can work in a more
gentle and natural way to cause the energies that were out of balance
and caused the appearance of the physical symptoms to begin to reverse
the process. Depending on the nature of the problem, a realigning
or balancing of energies can, many times, relieve the physical symptoms
- again without radiation, surgery, or drugs. Which would you prefer?
