Integrating a Subtle Energy Anatomy: How do we Define the Concept of Energy?
In developing a new paradigm for Integrative Quantum Medicine, it will be essential to define a language in which the worlds of conventional Western medicine and alternative medicine can communicate with each other, particularly in terms of energy. Very few people realize the importance of redefining a broader platform of understanding that will integrate both materialistic and energetic forms of medicine together. Medical interventionists on both sides will need to be able to speak the same language. In one system – energy doesn’t exist; in others – it means everything.
The concept of energy as it relates to the human body in conventional medicine is mechanistic, often discussed in terms of electrical current. On the other hand, in complementary or alternative medicine, this concept is used in different contexts without a common consensus as to its meaning. In Ayurvedic medicine, energy is referred to as prana, and flows through energy systems described as nadis and chakras. In Oriental medicine it is referred to as ch’i and the energy system is mapped out as meridians. In Homeopathy, it is referred to as vital force energy. Most of the time, other modalities refer to some type of healing energy, frequency or vibration. There is no common language or understanding amongst these traditions used to explain subtle energy.
As a medical doctor, I am very conscious that most of the major concepts that I have learned in Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Acupuncture, Taoist medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, have no equivalent or resonance in Western medicine. When I was a medical student, the curriculum to become a doctor was limited to anatomy, physiology, chemistry, microbiology, and other subjects that do not have the capacity to grasp the concepts of vital force energy, ch’i, prana or any other type of healing energy.
How does the mind relate to the body? How can we understand the relationship between emotion, conflicts and chronic diseases? I realized over time that the solution and cures for many diseases relied on the understanding of these factors.
How would you feel if the mechanic that fixes your car had no clue about its electrical systems? Medicine is now facing the same challenge in trying to solve complex diseases with solely mechanistic and materialistic approaches – when the problem is at a much deeper level, requiring a more profound comprehension of the complexity of human reality.
Without a point of view such as the one defined by quantum physics, we can’t go beyond the seen to reach the unseen realities in the realm of non-locality. The new Integrative Quantum Doctor in the future will not only have to study the physical model of anatomy, but will also need to expand his or her knowledge to include what I call a subtle energy anatomy, based on the science of quantum physics and the most recent research in neuroanatomy.
Subtle Energy 101 Course - Dr. Yury Kronn
Subtle Energy 101 will give students a clear understanding of what subtle energy is and what it is not, will demonstrate algorithms governing subtle energy actions, and will discuss all possible ways it interacts with physical matter and the human body.
