As I thought about the topic for this week’s post, I realized that, with the exception of gross physical trauma, pretty much everything that impacts the health of human beings is invisible.
As we become more technologically sophisticated and able to measure and observe energy itself, we are understanding ever more deeply the invisible influences that can negatively impact our health, and of those that can help us improve our health and well-being.
Medicine claims be informed by science, yet its practitioners too often fall into a truly medieval level of dogmatic thinking.
New understandings are routinely deemed to be heretical. When, not all that long ago, the Hungarian physician Ignaz Semmelweis (1818-1865) dared suggest that post-partum mortality rates would drop drastically if doctors and midwives would simply disinfect their hands between births, he found himself committed to an asylum, where he was beaten by the guards and subsequently died.
Within a few short decades, Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) would confirm the germ theory of disease. The previously invisible germs had become visible.
Ever since, we’ve identified a growing list of pathogenic microorganisms as the source of many ailments. Treating illness by eliminating these harmful bugs has enabled us to triumph over many former health scourges.
But infectious diseases are no longer the only threats to human health – today, many of our patients present with complex constellations of symptoms: patterns of chronic disease, autoimmune diseases, and other conditions that can be difficult to diagnose and treat.
We now have some rudimental understanding of the impact of energy – invisible vibrations! – on the physical body. And we’re very tentatively beginning to grasp the potential of energy medicine to help correct them.
Yet pioneers of less conventional energy-based diagnostics and therapies continue to be accused of medical malpractice, fraud, and even worse.
The use of devices that purport to measure and balance the electromagnetic signatures of organs, glands, and energy centers in the human body has landed more than a few practitioners in jail, even in the 21st century.
These diagnostic and treatment devices and medicines are based on a scientific understanding of invisible realities. The truth is that everything in creation has an energetic signature and a characteristic rate of vibration – including the earth, every cell of our bodies, and every microorganism. Physical matter coalesces around this energetic patterning.
Our cells communicate through electromagnetic vibration. The harmful effects of the external electromagnetic frequencies of cell phones, computer connections, microwave ovens, and electrical towers on the healthy energetic functioning of the body have been identified in large epidemiological studies.
The medicine of the future will undoubtedly be able to identify, diagnose, and treat the disruptions caused by these invisible influences.
Today, we’ve barely touched the surface of energy-based medicine – I imagine that before long, our present tools will be seen as primitive in the extreme – like rickety old Model Ts.
Millions today are comprehensively invested in their electronic devices – just imagine the disruption that would occur, if we were to take seriously the known harmful effects of these technologies.
On the positive side, we’ve acquired a number of proven, highly effective energy-based tools. Acupuncture works with the body’s invisible energies. Hand-healing (as in Touch for Health), and psychic healing work in the realm of subtle energy. Homeopathy, flower essences, and light, color, and sound therapies utilize basic principles of energetic resonance.
That the world has entered an age of energy-awareness cannot be in doubt – all of the major modern conveniences that science has given us are based on an understanding of energy and its applications.
Fortunately, even medicine, that most tradition-bound and stubbornly change-resistant craft, has begun to recognize the trend, and adjust its tools accordingly.
