As we enter the 21st century, the nature of healthcare is shifting dramatically. Many scientists and leading-edge thinkers now believe that human beings are more than biological machines with parts that age and wear down, only to be treated by drug therapy and surgery. A number of pioneering researchers embrace a new view of healing called vibrational medicine that combines the best of ancient healing love with a modern view of the body as an energy machine affected by many alternative techniques and treatments.
Dr. Richard Gerber is a traditionally trained western physician who is also one of the leading researchers and practitioners of vibrational medicine. In his new book, designed for lay readers, he takes us on a comprehensive journey to the new frontier of medicine where he
Dr. Gerber combines the latest scientific evidence with case studies of real patients who have benefited in specific ways from vibrational remedies, and where vibrational approaches exceed the results of traditional western techniques. He rounds out his book with a resource section of recommended reading, providing additional names and addresses of associations and individuals working on the vibrational frontier.
In this ground-breaking self-help work, Dr. Gerber writes, "In the world of vibrational medicine, illness is thought to be caused not only by germs, chemical toxins and physical trauma but also by chronic dysfunctional emotional-energy patterns and unhealthy ways of relating to ourselves and other people. Rather than relying on drugs and scalpels to treat illnesses, the vibrational approach employs different forms of energy to bring about healing changes in the mind, body, and spirit of the sick."
What is Vibrational Medicine?
For many people, the term "vibrational medicine" will be unfamiliar. The word "vibrational" conjures up an image of something vibrating or making sound. Sound waves are the most familiar form of vibration people think about when they use the term "vibrational." But sound waves are actually just one form of vibrating energy. Light is another form of vibration or oscillating energy. They are two examples of the many types of energy that make up the so-called electromagnetic spectrum, which also includes radio waves, television broadcasts, X-rays, cosmic rays, ultrasonic waves, and microwaves. Modem physics tells us that the only difference between these forms of energy is that each oscillates at a different frequency or rate of vibration. Hence, vibrational medicine refers to an evolving viewpoint of health and illness that takes into account all the many forms and frequencies of vibrating energy that contribute to the "multidimensional" human energy system.
The most basic such form is the matter that composes the physical body. According to the new perspective of Einsteinian and quantum physics, the biochemical molecules that make up the physical body are actually a form of vibrating energy. During the early part of the twentieth century, Albert Einstein came to the startling conclusion that matter and energy were actually interconvertible and interchangeable. His famous E=mc2 mathematically described how matter and energy were interrelated. Einstein said matter and energy were, in fact, two different forms of the same thing. At the time Einstein came up with this conclusion, few scientists could entirelyunderstand its magnitude. But it was this very realization of matter's interconvertibility into energy that led to the development of the first atomic bomb, in which a few grams of uranium were converted directly into energy, proving Einstein's theory in a most unforgettable demonstration. With the example of the atomic bomb, more scientists came to believe in Einstein's assertion that matter and energy were two expressions of the same thing. In a variety of experiments in particle physics, in which scientists hurl speeding subatomic particles at targets in atom smashers to study the tiny fragments making up the structure of matter, additional evidence has been gathered confirming that all matter is really a form of frozen energy.
The Human Body as Energy Field
If this is so, then all the atoms and subatomic particles making up the human body are also a kind of frozen energy as well. This means people can be considered complex bundles of frozen energy! Since all energy vibrates and oscillates at different rates, then, at least at the atomic level, the human body is really composed of different kinds of vibrating energy. The term "vibrational medicine" comes from this fact. More specifically, vibrational medicine is an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of illness based upon the idea that we are all unique energy systems. By using a vibrational-medicine approach, it is possible to diagnose different types of illnesses based on a knowledge of the different frequencies of energy that can be measured coming from the human body. This idea is certainly not new. For example, many doctors routinely order electrocardiograms (EKGs) on patients as a part of their yearly exams. The electrical energy coming from the heart can give doctors information about whether the heart is functioning properly. The EKG "energy patterns" can reveal to physicians if the heartbeat is regular or erratic and can also indicate whether a patient?s heart is receiving enough vital blood flow through the nutrient-carrying coronary arteries. All this information comes from interpreting the patterns of vibrating electrical energy put out by the beating human heart (as picked up by EKG electrodes attached to the patient?s skin). The squiggly lines of the electrocardiogram are a diagnostic tool for the physician who looks to detect early heart disease (even in individuals without noticeable symptoms of chest pain or palpitations). Thus, the measurment of the heart?s electrical energy, even in a simple EKG, is actually a form of vibrational-medical diagnosis. But even though such medical instruments as EKG machines might provide a very basic form of vibrational diagnosis, die paradigm of healing that guides most doctors in their interpretation of this energetic information is one based upon a viewpoint of the body as a biomechanism, not a vibrational-energy system.
The concept of the body as a complex energetic system is part of a new scientific worldview gradually gaining acceptance in the eyes of modem medicine. The older, yet prevailing, view of the human body is still based upon an antiquated model of human functioning that sees the body as a sophisticated machine. In this old worldview, the heart is merely a mechanical pump, the kidney a filter of blood, and the muscles and skeleton a mechanical framework of pulleys and levers. The old worldview is based upon Newtonian physics, or so called billiard-ball mechanics. In the days of Sir Isaac Newton, scientists thought they had figured out all the really important laws of the universe. They had discovered laws describing the motion of bodies in space and their momentum, as well as their actions at rest and in motion. The Newtonian scientists viewed the universe itself as a gigantic-machine, somewhat like a great clock. It followed, then, that the human body was probably a machine as well. Many scientists in Newton's day actually thought that all the great discoveries of science had already been made and that little work was left to be done in the field of scientific exploration.
As science grew more sophisticated, so did the nature of the biomachine we were thought to be. That is, as our technologies became more powerful with the discovery of the optical and electron microscopes, the parts and gears of the human machine were studied at smaller and smaller levels. While early European Physicians could analyze the human body only in terms of dissection of organs at the time of autopsy, today's medical researchers have the tools to study our physical makeup at the cellular and molecular levels. Modern medicine's current Newtonian biomechanistic viewpoint suggests that if we could only understand how all the different tiny parts fit together in the human body, we could develop better ways of fixing and repairing the body in the event of illness. This mechanical approach to fixing the body is nowhere more evident than in the field of surgery, Surgeons are the ultimate biomechanics.
