What Is the Science Behind Energy Medicine?

Energy medicine is a branch of integrative medicine that deals with subtle energies. It is based on the belief that each person is equipped with an electromagnetic field, which is susceptible to disturbances from the environment, the mind, bodily movements, and internal processes. These disturbances can lead to illness and diseases. Its goal is to return this energy back to homeostasis to promote health and wellbeing—but instead of using chemicals to mechanically alter the internal environment, it uses physics.

You probably know that your body is highly electrically connected. Each cell uses the principles of electricity for movement and communication, and in the process, generates an energy field. This is the scientific phenomenon that energy medicine seeks to heal and understand. And it was developed long before modern science could even begin to validate it.

After atomic theory was widely accepted at the end of the 19th century, scientists have worked dillegently and thoroughly to investigate our complex internal processes. Diagnostic techniques for medical imaging have leveraged the power of the human energy field, but conventional therapeutics has not. Alternative therapies, like energy medicine, seek to fill this gap. And while the exact science of how energy medicine manipulates the human energy field is not fully understood, it is a powerful therapy that has helped many people in ways that modern therapeutics never could. And the best part is, there are no negative side effects.

It’s important to remember that just because something hasn’t been fully scientifically proven yet doesn’t mean it’s not true. In many ways, alternative therapies can be sounder in principle than commonplace ones. If you’re interested in learning more about energy medicine, take a look at Tribe’s practitioner directory. Energy healing, and other alternative therapies, can open new doors that you never knew were possibilities.
