Anyone who has visited one of my websites can see that there are a handful of natural health therapies that I consider the best and most effective for easy, accessible and inexpensive ways to maintain and restore health naturally. I believe that Energy Medicine is one of the most inexpensive, easy and safest ways to restore and improve your mental, physical and emotional health.
Energy medicine is derived in part from the ancient art of acupuncture. Energy medicine uses well-mapped if not entirely well-understood, energy pathways and energy systems that run through and around the body. The energy pathways, called meridians, have been extensively studied and mapped out over the last 5000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
The energy that runs through the human body can be measured with scientific instruments and is the basis for western medicine diagnostic tools such as the MRI. The meridians can be likened to the body's circulatory system but instead of carrying blood they carry electrical energy. And in the same way an artery can become clogged, your energy pathways can become congested and stagnant causing discomfort and eventually if left untended, disease.
Energy medicine essentially involves using your fingers to tap on specific acupuncture points on the body, or using the energy in your hands and can be used in a variety of ways. My two favorite ways are Donna Eden's five-minute daily energy routine and Gary Craig's Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).
The daily energy routine is a series of 5 or 6 different exercises that just t`ke a few minutes and serve to keep your body's energies humming. Moving your body in ways that help the energy to flow and remove stagnation and blockage will help keep your energy level high, your immune system healthy and increase your health, vitality and clarity of mind. Detailed explanations of the exercises can be found in Donna's Book Energy Medicine. If you are interested in learning more about this interesting way to increase your health this book is well worth reading.
Emotional Freedom Techniques are an effective and fast way to delete, manage and diminish emotions of stress and fear. The basis behind EFT is that most negative emotional issues have an energetic basis. An energy system became stuck or 'short-circuited' at the time of an original trauma and may, without your even being aware of it, cause you to react in a limiting way. Phobias are a good example but there are countless other such reactions that may be less obvious such as weight and eating issues, sleep disturbances and anxiety. You can learn EFT by going to the EFT website emofree.com and downloading the free manual.
If you have serious physical or emotional illness you should of course consult a qualified doctor or professional therapist.
Energy medicine techniques such as EFT and the Daily Energy Routine can help people to overcome self-defeating emotional habits, enjoy greater health and a more balanced and less-stressful life. These natural health therapies are tools that are well worth exploring and I hope you are able to use them and share them as successfully as I have.
