These include:








Music and Sound

Essential Oils

Energy technologies including:

▪ Laser, ultrasound and micro-current – primarily used for pain relief

▪ Biofeedback – for learning how to better cope with stress

▪ Electromagnetic stimulation for wound healing, soft tissue injuries, and pain Energy Healing - considered a “new” field in modern medicine - is separated into two categories by NCCAM, the U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine10:

• Energies that can be measured scientifically by our present standards, like electromagnetic therapy, or therapy using sound waves

Energies that are not yet subject to our measurement – the subtle fields that are utilized in energy healing, acupuncture, chi gong, Ayurveda, homeopathy, therapeutic touch, prayer or distance healing, and similar modalities.

From my experience, patients are frustrated and disappointed with the standard care solutions for their chronic symptoms. More times than less, a vast population of chronically ill patients not only sees no improvement, but experiences further decline in their health.

As a result, patients start to research, ask their doctors intelligent questions, and listen to answers and solutions with high expectations.

They seek help outside of their insurance’s network, often traveling far to seek a physician who goes beyond the standard offering of care; one who gives more personal attention to the patient and offering treatment solutions, including the realm of energy medicine.

Humans are electromagnetic beings which must be taken into account in one’s diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. This branch of biophysics is barely known or understood; therefore, it is not pursued by physicians.

While biophysics has been known since and was officially recorded in 189211 as “the branch in science concerned with the application of physical principles and methods to biological problems,” medical schools do not teach their students the established fact that every function within the human body boils down to an act of physics or even chemical processes.

Knowing this fact would help physicians to move quickly, and confidently embrace methods using forms of energy and complementing standard patient care with energy medicine.

In the peer-reviewed literature we find evidence that certain electromagnetic fields have an impact on physiological processes such as melatonin secretion, nerve regeneration, cell growth, collagen production, DNA synthesis, cartilage and ligament growth, lymphocyte activation, and more.12

Consistent in these findings is that the frequencies need to be specific and not generic. Exposing the patient to a large range of frequencies limits therapeutic results which may only be temporary.

The electromagnetic stimulation needs to be personalized to the patient, just like we personalize pharmaceuticals or nutraceuticals.
