Bioenergetics The Future of Medicine

What is Bioenergetics?

Bioenergetics is a new revolutionary therapy for health and wellness. The word bioenergetics is made up of “bio” (life) and “energetics” (energy), it is about the energy of life.

In bioenergetics, one works with the body’s energy system to support health and the body’s innate healing processes. While much of the world focuses on the chemistry of the body, chemistry itself relies on energy exchange, or the physics of the body. Working with energy gets us to the physical root causes of any health concerns. Modern scientific methods, especially the insights gained from quantum physics are being applied to better understand the body’s energy field and the flow of information that takes place throughout this field. There is an astrophysicist named Milo Wolff and he stated: “Nothing happens in nature without an energy exchange. communication or acquisition of knowledge of any kind occurs only with an energetic transfer. There are no exceptions.” The difference is that pharmaceutical medicine and nutrition introduces chemistry directly to the body, and therefore works with energy indirectly. Bioenergetics works directly with energy. The new direction in healthcare is going beyond how cells communicate biochemically to direct physiology. We will look at the quantum information fields that organize energy and thus direct physiology.

The Origins of Bioenergetics

Bioenergetics is a huge subject built on solid foundations. Many ancient cultures on every continent recognized an energy field within and around the body, described as the aura, chakras, meridians, chi, prana, and so on. Today, modern scientific methods – especially the insights gained from quantum physics – are being applied to better understand the body’s energy field and the flow of information that takes place throughout this field.

Let’s look at Traditional Chinese Medicine, it has played an important part in the history and development of modern bioenergetics. It dates back at least four thousand years and is a radically different way of understanding human health, physical function, disease, and its causes. Traditional Chinese Medicine is focused on the whole person, rather than disease. At the heart of the Traditional Chinese Medicine healing model is the flow of energy, qi, through the meridians. Disease is viewed as a lack of harmony or disruptions in chi or qi (usually pronounced “Chee,” but in some places as “key”). Practitioners try to influence the delivery and control of this subtle energy. Chi is analogous to prana, mana, or orgone of other systems. The meridians are divided into Yin and Yang groups. Everything has Yin and Yang aspects which interact and never achieve absolute stasis. Traditional Chinese Medicine thinking is the notion of balance. Health is seen as a balance of two opposing (yet complementary) forces, Yin and Yang, complementary opposites within a greater whole. Yin is the female, inhibitory energy, static, cool, calming, and intuitive, while Yang is the male excitatory energy, dynamic, stimulating, and logical. It’s related to sky, heavens, and the high points above, while Yin is related to earth and underground, to low points in land and nature.

Meridians are central to Traditional Chinese Medicine. They are the energetic pathways along which the body’s source energy, ‘qi’, flows. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, illness is caused by blockages or disturbances to the energy flow along the meridians, and the aim of all treatment is to restore this flow. This is known as acupuncture; acupuncture has been practiced in China for at least three thousand years. Fine needles are inserted in the appropriate (acupuncture points) along the meridians to stimulate and/or restore the flow of energy. Acupressure has the same purpose, using finger pressure rather than needles. These days, lasers are also used instead of needles in acupuncture. Acupuncture is now practiced worldwide, and many contemporary applications exist including their use as analgesics. Analgesics are a class of medications designed specifically to relieve pain. They include acetaminophen (Tylenol), which is available over the counter (OTC) or by prescription when combined with another drug, and opioids (narcotics), which are only available by prescription. While the placebo effect works as analgesic in 30% of cases, acupuncture has been proven to work in 70-80%. Dr. Bruce Pomeranz at the University of Toronto discovered how acupuncture works in this area. He identified the effects of stimulating acupuncture points on the electrical and biochemical system in nerve fibers, especially of the central and autonomous nervous systems, the spinal cord, the midbrain, and the hypothalamus-pituitary region.

Ayurveda is the Indian version of ancient Chinese medicine that views disease as an imbalance in the vital energy called prana (the Ayurvedic equivalent of chi). It is based on the five great elements of which the universe is made earth, water, fire, wood, and ether. Like Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda focus on a fundamental energy in the body and seeks to balance it, so in this way it shares similarities with modern bioenergetics. It also looks to yoga and other lifestyle practices that promote balanced energy flow. Like Traditional Chinese Medicine, however, many Ayurvedic solutions involve dietary supplements that are chemical in nature, valuable complements to energy-based medicines or technologies, but not in themselves directly bioenergetic.

Bioenergetic Technologies and Healing Methods

Today there are many devices on the market that demonstrate the use of energy fields in medicine; they are found in clinics and hospitals all over the world. But increasingly the greatest breakthroughs in modern healthcare are coming from devices that can directly measure and influence information fields. Among the leaders in this space is NES Health with its BioEnergetiX WellNES System including scanning technology, handheld electro-stimulation therapy (MiHealth device), and information-based remedies (Infoceuticals). Founded by former acupuncture professor, Peter Fraser, and Harry Massey, the BWS scans the human body-field based on the theory of information fields allowing instant communication throughout the body with preferred communication pathways and directions of information flow. It addresses energy levels in the body, information flow in the body, and blockages to both.

Today’s bioenergetics is able to incorporate technology not available in the past, including a number of electric devices that interact with the body. Inexpensive TENS units, used in clinics and in homes alike, are one example, although they are very basic and tend to simply dull nerve sensitivity rather than support a healing response from the body. SCENAR devices addressed the static electric frequencies of TENS and incorporated real-time biofeedback, adjusting its interaction to the response of the body. The MiHealth device, NES Health took the idea of SCENAR and further developed it with nature’s preferred frequencies (through a theory known as global scaling), pulsed electromagnetic frequencies (PEMF), and corrective information based on NES Health’s long history of developing energy remedies.

Pulse Electro Magnetic Fields (PEMF), Individualized Microcurrent Frequencies (IMF), InfraRed and Red Light, all these interact with the body’s natural healing processes.
Bioenergetics stands at the frontiers of science. It encapsulates biology (the study of life) and physics (as in energy, the underlying animating force of life). It explains how these two disciplines interact. It is concerned with the flow and interaction of information fields within and between living organisms and between living organisms and their environment. This is quantum biology, a developing science, and it is moving in exciting new directions.
