Five aspects of our lives, biological, social-behavioral, psychological, spiritual, and financial are affected by 3 levels of existence. The 3 levels of existence are:
Many severe illnesses or disease begin at the energetic level before they are detectable by modern medical science. They may even stay at that level causing a significant amount of suffering and disability. Balancing the Meridian-chakra energy systems addresses the root cause of most conditions.
Many can agree that amazing progress has been made by modern medicine taking care of the structural and bio-chemical components of disease.
Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, and Ayurveda takes care of the human energy system, and it is a crucial part in integrative medicine.
For instance, in acute trauma to a person’s low back and leg from a skiing accident, the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones may be involved. This may be noticed by the naked-eye clinically, or by an X-ray machine. However, there are also bio-chemical reactions and inflammation taking place as well. These may be noticed via scientific laboratory examination of the person’s blood sample.
There is also an energetic interruption of the Qi-energy meridian-chakra system causing pain or illness. Although invisible, the meridians are essential to keep the body functioning and alive. If we don’t recognize the energetic patterns of dysfunction at the meridian level, and treat accordingly, we are not able to heal the patient effectively, and entirely.
Western Medicine uses heroic, and drastic treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, pharmaceutical medications, or surgery. These may be helpful to treat structural, bio-chemical or physiological symptoms, but they can generate unwanted side-effects due to their negative effect on the meridian system.
Acupuncture can help reduce side-effects and enhance the outcomes of conventional therapies. Acupuncturists can detect energetic disruptions and provide a clinical picture for understanding the disharmony. Energetic homeostasis is when people can feel their emotions as appropriate per the situation and company, and feel content, and even-keeled most of the time.
