Newtonian principles gave way to discoveries of quantum physics more than a hundred years ago and yet biologists and medical students continue to be trained to view the body only as a physical machine that operates in a linear fashion. Because of their Newtonian, materialistic bias, conventional researchers have completely ignored the role that energy plays in health and disease.
We have been programmed by pharmaceutical corporations to become a nation of prescription drug–popping junkies with tragic results. We need to step back and incorporate the discoveries of Quantum Physics into biomedicine so that we can create a new, safer system of medicine that is attuned to the laws of nature.
Based on the results of a ten-year survey of government statistics, iatrogenic illness i.e., illness resulting from medical treatment, is the leading cause of death in the United States and adverse reactions to prescription drugs are responsible for more than 300,000 deaths a year.
These are dismaying statistics, especially for a healing profession that has arrogantly dismissed three thousand years of effective Eastern medicine as unscientific, even though it is based on a deeper understanding of the universe.
For thousands of years, long before Western scientists discovered the laws of quantum physics, Asians have honored energy as the principal factor contributing to health and wellbeing. In Eastern medicine, the body is defined by an elaborate array of energy pathways called meridians. In Chinese physiologic charts of the human body, these energy networks resemble electronic wiring diagrams.
Using aids like acupuncture needles, Chinese physicians test their patient’s energy circuits in exactly the same manner that electrical engineers “troubleshoot” a printed-circuit board, searching for electrical “pathologies.” Conventional biologists, on the other hand, believe that the biochemical reactions responsible for life are generated through Henry Ford–styled assembly lines: one chemical causes a reaction, followed by another reaction with a different chemical, etc.
In conventional medicine, if there is a problem in the system, evident as a disease or dysfunction, the source of the problem can be attributed to a malfunction in one of the steps along the chemical assembly line. By prescribing pharmaceutical drugs for example, the defective single point can theoretically be repaired and health restored. This assumption spurs the pharmaceutical industry’s search for magic-bullet drugs and designer genes.
We have a choice!
