“Look at the step-by-step process by which we come to understand the world around and within us. Energy is a huge part of this. Our personal ability to understand and manipulate the energies of nature gives us direct experience of the most vital aspects of life. However, because of historical confusions and vested interests our culture and our education have obscured the nature of energy and thereby denied us the opportunity to explore what is arguably the most important part of our nature and of our health. The resulting confusion has spilled over into our healthcare system, which is in a crisis that threatens our prosperity and national security. To ignore energy is to deny the application to our health and welfare of one of the greatest areas of human inquiry – physics. This book has the goal of bringing the physical and biomedical sciences into cooperation as we look to the future of our healthcare system.” James Oschman
This is the book that ties medical research together with energy practioners approach to healing. The second edition is even better than the first. For example, we now have over 450,000 peer-reviewed academic research papers are now published on inflammation as the root cause of much chronic disease. Many energy approaches to medicine are effective at reducing inflammation and clinical studies are repeatedly demonstrating this effect. The emerging research in major journals is enormous and few physicians read it.
As a former Professor of Radiology it is interesting that the physicists and radiologists have been the primary proponents of building the scientific basis for energy medicine. Perhaps our fundamental understanding of nuclear physics combined with endless study of increasingly accurate images of human tissue in diseased states has caused us to put 2 and 2 together and get 4.
