The Science behind Energy Medicine
Scientists now accept that all matter even at the atomic level is fundamentally bundles of energy that materialise and disappear in a seemingly random fashion. If all the atoms in our bodies were compacted to the dimension of its nucleus, we would be one billionth of our size! Our volume is due to energy interactions. Our energy field extends beyond our physical body and can be detected by cameras and other electromagnetic measuring instruments. Just because we personally cannot see or feel it, doesn’t mean the energy field isn’t there – infra-red cameras are used by the police to track criminals by following their heat energy emissions and by Roger to identify areas of inflammation or abnormal circulation.
This is a Kirlian photograph showing the energy field around a finger (end on). Kirlian photography was developed in Russia and there are now devices that can be used diagnostically based on this technique. Kirlian photography has also been used to monitor changes in the energy field following various treatment modalities. It is interesting to note that the energy field surrounding microwaved food is almost non-existent. No wonder they were banned on health grounds in Russia before Peristroika!
Given that the body is fundamentally energy it is more logical to treat it with energy/frequencies than chemicals. Energy flows in bodies along meridians that were identified by Traditional Chinese Medicine thousands of years ago. There are also key energy portals called chakras which were recognised in ancient India. Cellular junctions along these meridians have been shown to have enhanced glycocalyx intercellular communications.
Acupuncture points have been scientifically shown to be physiologically different - Prof. Tiller at Stanford University, California showed that acupuncture points have a significantly lower electrical resistance than surrounding skin. Energy medicine (CAM) takes on many forms - Acupuncture, Sound Therapy, Homoeopathy and Scenar amongst many others. Anybody who says there is no science behind CAM needs to learn more science – ie. Quantum Physics!
The picture on the left above shows the corona discharge from 3 acupuncture points on the back of the hand that correspond to red points on the acupuncture chart on the right. A Russian-designed piece of equipment called the Acuvision was used to create this effect and can be used to treat using ion-puncture therapy.
