The New Scientific theories Behind Energy Medicine

To understand the scientific theories behind energy medicine, one must look in many directions towards new frontiers in body/mind medicine. Recent discoveries in the fields below illustrate how the mind, body and emotions are intricately connected and can be studied from different perspectives:
 

Energy Medicine…The New Scientific theories of Acupuncture/Acupressure

Exciting new research has begun to establish an observable scientific basis (scientific theories) for the subtle energy system upon which all energy medicine techniques is based. The discovery of tiny threadlike anatomical structures called Bonghan channels has recently established a physical mechanism corresponding to the acupuncture meridians. Other scientific theories have shown that radioactive tracers injected at known acupoints followed the meridian lines precisely whereas tracers injected at non-acupoints spread out concentrically with no lines evident. It has also been proven, in controlled studies, that acupoint stimulation, with or without needles, can produce pain relief beyond that achieved by medication. As Western Medicine acknowledges that our bodies are an energy configuration (which traditional Chinese medicine has maintained for millennia), the mechanisms by which energy medicine techniques works will be further revealed, and  further scientific theories will be proven.

Energy Medicine…New Scientific Theories…Epigenetics

Traditionally, scientific theories have stated that our genes are fixed and that nothing can change genetic determinism. But the new biology of epigenetics is proving that cells are responsive to their environment and that these responses reach deep into the internal structure of the cell, including the DNA. The cells of our body are dynamic: Certain genes are being turned on and turned off based on environmental factors.

What is most exciting and empowering is the discovery that cells are responding to the internal environment of our thoughts, beliefs and feelings. When we change our beliefs and our emotions, this literally produces biological changes — on the cellular level. Dr. Bruce Lipton, a pioneer in the scientific theaories of epigenetics and author of The Biology of Belief, says that we have an immense power to influence our health and wellbeing on the biological and physical levels by consciously turning our energy towards more positive thoughts and feelings. And what can do this better than EFT? Dr. Lipton himself is a proponent of EFT, Acupuncture, NLP and Kinesiology.

Energy Medicine…New Scientific Theories…Psychoneuro immunology (PNI)

This new branch of science has emerged in the last 35 years giving us new scientific theories. It is the study of how psychological processes (our thoughts and emotions) affect the nervous and immune systems of the human body. Dr. Candace Pert, who has made groundbreaking discoveries concerning the way the emotions act directly upon the immune system through neuropeptide-specific receptors, is another scientist who advocates EFT, acupuncture, NLP and other energy medicine modalities. A major focus of PNI has been the study of stress and how the body’s stress responses — linked to the emotions of anxiety, fear, tension, anger and sadness — weaken the immune system, interfere with healing and even cause disease. For physical health and wellbeing, we need to be able to effectively release stressful emotions from the body and cultivate a more balanced state. This is precisely what EFT, acupuncture, NLP, hypnotherapy and Kinesiology accomplishes. to the capacity of the human brain to generate new neural pathways and change its own structure.

Energy Medicine…New Scientific Theories

Through most of the 20th Century it was believed that many parts of the brain become fixed during childhood. However, recent discoveries and new scientific theories have shown that thinking, feeling, learning and acting literally change the brain’s physical structure and organization. When we say that EFT, NLP, Hypnotherapy, Kinesiology and Acupuncture helps us change the patterns of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, make new connections or shift perspectives — this is literally true on the physical level with regard to how the brain is processing the issue at hand. These energy medicine techniques allows us to literally create cognitive shifts which exist observably as new neural pathways in the brain.

 Energy Medicine…New Scientific Theories

With more and more sophisticated means of measurement and experimentation, a new era of scientific validation is opening up, and new scientific theories are emerging which validate energy medicine healing. Recent discoveries in each of these fields point to scientific evidence around what we see consistently happening both during — and as a consequence of — EFT, acupuncture, kinesiology, NLP, hypnotherapy and shamanic techniques. New scientific theories are giving these brilliant healing modalities more credibility, and hopefully, opening up possibilities for those who need proof that energy medicine healing is a powerful tool, and it works!
