Quantum Physics: A New Scientific Foundation for Integrative Medicine
Science defines the premise upon which our understanding of reality is based. Traditionalists have declared that conventional Western medicine is the only scientific medicine. The current medical system is based upon a materialistic model incorporating Darwinist theories of evolution, Newtonian physics, chemistry, and physical (elementary particle level) anatomy and physiology. However, through explorations and observations of the behavior of particles at the subatomic level, science has evolved.
Fifty years ago, quantum physics emerged as a new scientific standard and model of understanding of reality. It has revolutionized our society on many levels, sparking discussions of science vs. spirituality/consciousness; transforming the core of our society. It is now time to redefine a form of integrative medicine based on the new scientific model of understanding of the universe according to quantum physics – Integrative Quantum Medicine.
Through the principles of quantum physics we can explain how ancient traditions of healing such as Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture, Ayurvedic Medicine, and modalities such as Homeopathy and Naturopathy, work with the body’s subtle energy systems such as ch’i, prana, and vital force energy. A leading quantum physicist, Amit Goswami, PhD., has already laid the foundation for this in his book, The Quantum Doctor, a physicist’s guide to health and healing.
In the future we expect that medical universities will be incorporating this new quantum science as part of an integrative vision of medicine which combines conventional and alternative healing traditions. Quantum University, a leader in education in the fields of Holistic and Integrative Medicine, has already incorporated these fundamental principles of quantum physics into its curriculum.
Integrative Quantum Medicine is not only the key to solving the current healthcare crisis, but it will also lead to a new vision of integrative healthcare not based on disease, but on the full potentiality of the individual. Our understanding of the human body will expand to include the body’s subtle energy systems, and mental and emotional connections to the physical body. How the mind works can be explored from a non-dualistic viewpoint, compared to the dualistic philosophy used today.
It will open the door to creative new approaches to healing that have the opportunity to solve problems still unresolved by conventional medicine, specifically in the areas of chronic and degenerative diseases.
