By realizing that humans are beings of energy, one can begin to comprehend new ways of viewing health and illness, based upon the understanding that the molecular arrangement of the physical body is actually a complex network of interwoven energy fields.This energetic network, which represents the physical/cellular framework is organized and nourished by “subtle” energetic systems which coordinate the life-force with the body.
Vibrational medicine uses specialized forms of energy to positively affect those energetic systems that may be out of balance due to disease states. By rebalancing the energy fields that help to regulate cellular physiology, vibrational physician/healers attempt to restore order from a higher level of human functioning.
Americans are bombarded with conflicting messages about what diet is the optimal one.Obesity has become an epidemic, but nutritional deficiencies are increasingly recognized in overfed people.
