Is Conventional Medicine really Alternative Medicine - modernised?
Where does Bio Energy healing fit into all of this? We are all familiar with the term “Alternative Medicine” or “Alternative Healing”. Many believe it is a form of medicinal treatment departing from so-called “traditional” or “orthodox” scientific medicine practice. Alternative healing is one of the most natural treatments of illness and disease. Alternative healing methods have been in use since man first walked the earth.

It is however more accurate to describe “Alternative” as “Complementary” since it complements our modern medical form of treatment, and of course both complementary and modern conventional medicine both play a major role in our everyday health today.  The basic ingredients of most of the drugs prescribed today originate from herbs and plants which in their original form have been used for thousands of years since man first discovered their natural healing abilities.


Conventional orthodox medicine
Conventional orthodox medicine also uses as its basis for healing many of the oldest forms of healing methods known to man – namely herbs, which now forms the basis of many of the prescribed drugs now used today extensively by the pharmaceutical industry.

Science can now show that herbs, plants, and herbal essences have a vibratory rate which brings about the healing effect at a vibrational level in the body. Herbs create their healing affect with subtle specific vibrating frequencies which trigger the body’s own healing processes at a chemical level. The chemical activity itself is activated by electrical impulses and vibratory frequencies at their cellular level.

Alternative healing methods work on the fundamental basis of vibration. Our bodies vibrate. Our cells vibrate. And when we are sick or diseased it is again vibratory dysfunction with frequencies out of harmony with the body’s natural rhythms that is reflecting the illness.

Healing of any kind is really all about vibration and frequencies and most importantly creating within the body the correct environment for the body’s own self healing process to take place naturally.

Modern medical diagnostic equipment such as Ultrasound etc works on the creation of vibratory frequencies or sound waves.

What keeps us alive?
Despite all the technological advances in science and medicine scientists today still do not know what keeps us alive.
This life-force energy which pulses through our body is still a mystery. When a heart stops and all other methods of revival fails the next option is – yes you’ve guessed it – the application of electrodes to the body sending electrical vibratory frequencies via electricity, to try and “kick start” the heart.

How can electricity help heal the heart and yet conversely this same electricity can cause a heart to stop?
A heart attack is a “circulation” problem when blood flow to the heart is blocked.
 
When the heart malfunctions and suddenly stops beating unexpectedly or the irregular electrical activity leads to ineffective contraction and inadequate blood flow, this is called Cardiac Arrest which is an electrical problem. The heart’s constant beating is regulated by electrical activity starting in the right atrium, passing through the atrioventricular node, and into the ventricles. This electrical activity is normally energised at a cellular level by the body’s own internal electrical system of life-force energy and operates under normal circumstances without any outside stimulus. Cells in the heart will spontaneous depolarize and contract at a slow rate.  When an electrical current is passed through the heart, electrical activity is briefly stopped, which allows the heart to be momentarily "shocked out" of the irregular electrical activity. Because different cells in the heart spontaneously depolarize and cause contraction, the momentary stop in electrical activity allows for a new rhythm and pulse to begin to kick in.
 
Defibrillation is the process of applying therapeutic amounts of electricity to the heart.

Do Ancient Treatments still work effectively today?
Thankfully, many ancient practices such as Energy Therapy, Chinese Medicine, Hands on Healing Techniques, Nutritional Medicine, Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Massage, Ayurveda, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy, and so on are being used more and more today with great results along with many other ancient techniques which support the natural healing function of the body.

Over the years people who have been ill have tended to rely too easily on the “quick fix” and in general tended to be distrustful of the use of ancient forms of treatments through lack of clear knowledge, hearsay and a general belief that it was quackery. However, more and more people are now seeking out alternative methods of healing. What is now called alternative medicine was disregarded for years in western society with the general pubic favouring conventional medicine.

Are all Alternative Treatments the same?
Many principles remain common to the many different alternative therapies, modalities and alternative healing techniques:
The body has the ability to heal itself naturally, and given half a chance will remain healthy particularly if care is taken by paying more attention to our thoughts, feelings, emotions, attitudes, lifestyle, food and drink intake, nutrition, exercise etc.

It is equally important not just to look at oneself physically, but also mentally, emotionally and spiritually, in doing this we look at ourselves holistically – the whole self.
A person’s state of mind, body and how they are emotionally can be contributing factors in health related problems.
The person’s own positive attitude and mental outlook can have a profound effect on their body’s ability to heal itself back to full and vibrant health.

The road back to good health may be a simple change in lifestyle
Sometimes the road back to good health may be a simple change in lifestyle such as the intake of healthy food, regular moderate exercise, looking at where you can reduce stress in your life or getting a good restful night’s sleep.

We need to start taking control of our own lives. We need also to be less intimidated by the fear mongering which threatens us if we consider a major change in our lifestyle, habits or way of thinking. Conditioning will tend to fearfully control our thoughts and actions.

Alternative Healing sometimes referred to as complementary healing covers a wide spectrum of modalities.

When dealing with particular health issues, many people’s first port of call would be the orthodox or medical route. However there are a steadily increasing number of people who will now consider complementary or alternative healing methods when given the choice to do so. Complementary and alternative healing is more commonly known as complementary and alternative medicine – CAM- for short.

Alternative healing approaches the area of health more in terms of a natural or organic method using techniques which have proven useful and effective for thousands of years. Most of these alternative healing techniques originated in the East as part of Chinese or Japanese tradition and culture. And these more natural methods have become firmly integrated into western society and have spread all over the world.
Some of the most popular alternative healing modalities are:

ENERGY THERAPIES: With energy therapy the practitioner uses therapeutic touch to manipulate, balance and clear the body's energy fields to improve health. In most cases the fundamental principals or energy therapy remain the same, namely that the healing used is based on the manipulation of the body’s life-force energy system.

ACUPUNCTURE: Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique whereby the practitioner uses very thin needles which are used to stimulate meridian energy locations around the body, to help restore the natural flow of life-force energy throughout the body.

REIKI: Reiki Healing is the name given to an alternative healing modality originally developed in Japan in 1922 by a Buddhist called Mikao Usui. It is a technique based on the manipulation of the body’s Chi or energy field to bring about a state of homeostasis in the body. It is believed that when the body’s systems and organs are operating in harmony and in balance that the body begins its own natural healing process.

HERBAL MEDICINE: In herbal medicine remedies are prepared using various combinations of herbs to create remedies for various illnesses. Archaeological evidence would suggest that plants have been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Some evidence suggests the use of plants by the Greeks and Egyptian cultures to create herbal remedies date as far back as 5,000 years.  Some research even goes back to the stone age prehistoric period of human history approximately 60,000 years ago. Today modern medicine uses many plant-derived compounds as the fundamental ingredients in pharmaceutical medicine and drugs.

REFLEXOLOGY: Reflexology is an alternative healing modality whereby the therapist applies pressure to special pressure points on the client’s feet and hands using their thumbs or fingers. This helps to stimulate energy meridian points and pathways which correlate with various organs and systems in the body, to bring balance, harmony and healing to those locations.

CHIROPRACTIC: Chiropractic treatment focuses mainly on the musculoskeletal system with particular focus on the spine. It mainly looks for mechanical disorders , mis-alignments and irregularities affecting the spine. The traditional chiropractic practitioner uses a variety of techniques of physical manipulation and pressure to realign or normalize the skeletal system, vertebrae, or spinal column with the understanding that dysfunctions in these areas may interfere with nerves exiting from the spinal column which supplying organs and systems in the body.

Excerpt from Richard Gerber, MD author of “Vibrational Medicine”:
“Vibrational medicine is a diagnostic and healing approach to illness using energy in various forms and frequencies. As a therapy, vibrational medicine is the application of different types of energy for healing, including approaches as traditional as X-ray and radiation therapy for cancer, the use of electrical nerve stimulation for treating pain, and electromagnetic field stimulators for accelerating the healing of fractured bones.

Even full spectrum light is used for treating seasonal effective disorders or the ‘winter blues’. However, vibrational medicine also covers the more subtle forms of treatment such as acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, therapeutic touch, and that sort of genre. The latter involve using subtle life-force medicine, but they are energetic therapies nonetheless.
