What is Energy Medicine?

Dr. Oz called Energy Medicine, “The next big frontier in medicine” yet most people never heard of it.

The first thing to understand is that there are nine energy systems that support and underly our physical bodies. Our bodies are made of energy and Energy Medicine assesses the health of these systems. Just like our blood should flow without blockage throughout our vessels, so should the body’s energies flow unhindered. When these energies become stagnant or blocked, illness and disease result. All illness starts in our energy field. Preventing imbalances here will prevent illness from manifesting on the physical body. And, if illness or disease is already present in the physical body, rebalancing the energy field will have a direct effect on healing the physical body.

Energy Medicine is becoming more mainstream in the medical community as a “new field” of medicine, but it actually has ancient roots and draws heavily from Eastern health practices and disciplines such as acupuncture, yoga, and qigong. It is both a complement to other medical practices and a complete system for self-care.

The main difference between Energy Medicine and traditional Western Medicine is that Western medicine focuses on diagnosing and treating symptoms using external means, like drugs and/or surgery. Energy Medicine is not concerned with diagnosing and labeling a disease. It looks at the body as a whole, identifies what is stopping your body from healing, and by removing these blocks, helps your body heal itself naturally from the inside.

Western medicine is focused on suppressing symptoms with chemicals. Pain or any symptom in the body is like a check engine light — alerting you to a bigger underlying problem. Shutting it off with chemicals does not address the actual problem, and is a temporary bandaid. Energy Medicine uses these symptoms important clues to identifying imbalances and aims to bring the body back to its natural state of balance to truly heal and thereby remove the symptoms.

Our bodies want to, and have the ability, to heal themselves. If you break a bone, cut yourself, or get the flu your body will naturally heal itself. What can prevent this natural healing are energetic imbalances, which often lead to more serious illnesses. By identifying and clearing these energetic blockages you allow your body to do what it wants to naturally do . . . heal.
