Energy Medicine and the Movement of Qi

 Energy medicine has deep roots in acupuncture meridian therapy. The meridians are like a series of rivers running through the entire body. They flow to every organ, muscle and channel of our bodies. If there is a blockage mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually it will affect the smooth flow of Qi and a blockage of energy will surely ensue, resulting in some form of dis-eas of body, mind or spirit. A good point to remember is blood always follows Qi.

If there is a blocked Qi flow (Qi stagnation) you will soon see what we call in Chinese medicine (blood stagnation).

Clinical manifestations of blood Stagnation are:

• A Dull/dark complexion, purple lips, purple nails. 
• Pain that has the quality of boring in, fixed and stabbing and may be worse at night 
• Abdominal masses that do not move 
• Bleeding with dark blood and dark clots 
• Polycythemia - thrombotic disorders as myocardial infarction, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and deep vein thrombosis; an increase in blood viscosity that leads to reduced blood flow, splenomegaly, hepatomegaly, acne rosacea, urticaria, leg ulcers, loss of vision 
• Essential Thrombocythemia - spontaneous bruising, epistaxis, mucosal bleeding, thrombotic occlusion of arteries, myocardial infarction, stroke, gangrene, intestinal infarction, splenic atrophy 
• Platelet Defects - easy bruising, epistaxis, intestinal bleeding, persistent menorrhagia, mucous membrane bleeding in the mouth 
• Vascular and Nonthrombocytopenic Purpura - easy bruising, epistaxis, excessive bleeding after surgery or during menstruation; result of scurvy (Vitamin C deficiency) 
• Disorders of Blood Coagulation 
• Coagulation factor defects - hemarthrosis with hotness, redness swelling and pain and muscle cuff atrophy; compression neuropathy, cerebral hemorrhage; intrarenal bleeding & hematuria, intestinal bleeding and obstruction 
• Vitamin K Deficiency - newborn hemorrhagic disease, hemorrhage 
• Thrombophilia - venous thrombosis, arterial thrombosis

If there is a disturbance in the body there could very well be a blockage in the flow of Qi and blood.

Scars from an old injuries or operations can cause the Qi to stagnate or be blocked, that can lead to blood stagnation and a host of health problems.

When I was in Switzerland I had the opportunity to spend some time at Dr. Thomas Rau's clinic where they have combined many of the eastern theories, like the flow of energy in the meridians with traditional medicine. One of the most successful treatments that I brought back with me is neural therapy to open up Blocked Energy Fields. (BEF)

Neural therapy is both an effect method of diagnosing and treating illness and pain caused by disturbances of the body's electrophysiology. (Cardiac electrophysiology is the science of elucidating, diagnosing, and treating the electrical activities of the heart.) These electrical disturbances, called "Blocked Energy Fields (BEF) are manifestations of cell membrane instability and typically cause abnormal autonomic nervous system responses. A blocked energy field may be found in scars, the ganglia, teeth, or an internal organ.

(BEF) is blocked energy that has an unbalanced electrical potential than surrounding tissues. The smooth flow of Qi is disturbed and dis-ease can result in the nervous system, cause chronic pain and dysfunction of normal systems.

A scar may cause back pain, migraine headache, chronic stomach pain or cellular disturbances affecting the immune system as well as sexual dysfunctions.

When a patient comes into my office for the first time, I examine the entire body for scars from old injures and operations. This is an over looked key to unlocking a patient's health problems. The blocked energy in a meridian changes circulation to a body part when a trauma affects that area of the body. (BEF) develops when the system control does not return to normal after the trauma.

You can find a blockage by palpate over scars and trouble spots as well as testing the patient's muscle strength using applied kinesiology, computerized regulation thermography, heart rate variability or some of the other advanced energy measuring devices.

If the tissue is not receiving adequate circulation, from a blocked energy field, it will be less energetic and not have as strong an electromagnetic charge.

If I find a BEF, I'll inject it with a local anesthetic and maybe a homeopathic as well to open the blocked energy. Caine anesthetics are cell membrane stabilizers and act on interference fields in the same way that lidocaine does in treating irregular heartbeat.

I have found that the effect of injecting the blocked energy fields is almost immediate. There is sometimes sudden relief of symptoms-but typically this will occur within a few days.

Occasionally, patients will feel faint for a few minutes after neural therapy injections. This may be triggered by, low blood pressure caused by the injection or the fear of needles. Use a very small needle (27 gage) and this cuts down on the fear factor for most patients.

If your patient is on anti-inflammatories, anti-depressants, anti-hypertensives medications, you may get a poor response with neural therapy treatments. They tend to block the autonomic nervous system, antibiotics; poor nutrition, lack of mineral and vitamin deficiencies must be corrected to achieve the best results. Also toxins like, drugs, tobacco and alcohol may cause a poor response to neural therapy. Environmental toxins such as solvents, herbicides and fungicides affect some people so ask in your initial intake about all environmental hazarders like cleaning supplies even perfumes can block the energy flow. 
The metals in dental amalgam fillings, especially mercury, poison the autonomic nervous system and may defeat neural therapy as well.
