This is the 4th installment in the “Transformational Pathways: Integrating mind body approaches to thriving not just surviving” podcast series with Michael Ostrolenk and Doctor Craig Weiner of ChiroZone.net
. Today they explore the world of energy psychology – a subset of energy medicine – a variety of healing modalities including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), & TFT (Thought Field Therapy). In addition to giving a historical overview of this field, Dr. Weiner provides resources for further exploration, including eftuniverse.com
In general, conventional medicine views the human body as a “bag of biomolecules” and ignores the energy and biofield aspects of life. This paradigm bias perpetuates a domination of pharmaceuticals used to mask symptoms rather than finding root causes and solutions to our illnesses. In this podcast, Michael Ostrolenk speaks with Beverly Rubik, PhD
one of the pioneers in energy medicine. Dr. Rubik earned her PhD in biophysics from U.C. Berkeley, was an adviser at the NIH, and continues to conduct groundbreaking research into how subtle energy can heal. Michael and Dr. Rubik discuss FDA approved medical treatments based on energy medicine concepts and review empirical studies that demonstrate the relevance of the biofield to health and healing.
Chi, prayer, prana yoga, healing touch, and other forms of energy medicine are seen by some as simply spiritual ways to heal mind and body. Yet because the evidence is that these techniques do
improve human health and heal our maladies, the unknown physical mechanisms behind these methods are being scientifically investigated. Denise Lewis Premschak, CEO of the International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine
(ISSSEEM) speaks with Michael Ostrolenk in this podcast about the current efforts being made to better understand energy medicine.
