As an energetic healthcare practitioner, I’ve followed films like What the Bleep Do We Know and The Secret. They have crafted a new way of speaking about the quantum field taking us down the rabbit hole of exploration and discovery.

The Living Matrix takes the next evolutionary step to understanding energy as pivotal to health. With important contributions from Bruce Lipton, Rupert Sheldrake, Lynne McTaggart, Edgar Mitchell, Herman Koning, MD, James Oschman, Ph.D, Heartmath Institute, Marilyn Schlitz of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and Franz Popp to name a few, this film delivers rich food for thought from seasoned researchers. It also chronicles case studies of people who have experienced extraordinary healing working with the living matrix of the body-mind system.

In statements pivotal to our way of thinking about life and healing, the following summary of content is offered for “traveling even more deeply into the rabbit hole!”

Consider the following tenets from the film regarding health and healing.

1. Your body is connected to an energetic field of information that surrounds the body-mind field and includes it

2. Your body field is filled with energetic information. DNA ( biological information library) informs fields that become tissue, organs, muscles, cells, etc.

3. Genes are unlimited potential. Influence of environment, emotion and stress can create 30,000 different variations from the blueprint.

4. The heart imprints information from the energetic field and has neural tissue. Emotions have direct impact on what is relayed. The heart is the body’s control system and delivers information to the cells.

5. Life is patterns of information. Illness is a disturbance in the information energy system.

6. Disease is scrambled, blocked or disrupted information. When the disturbance is stopped, chemistry and physiology self correct.

7. 1/3 of all healing happens due to the placebo effect. Belief in process and positive thought have an impact through enhancing the healing process.

8. The future of energy medicine empowers facilitating the natural healing capacity of the body as a whole. This process is inclusive of thoughts, beliefs, attitudes and nurture.

9. Information follows intention with focus and alignment of frequency.

In a time when healthcare issues are increasingly controversial, this film helps to empower the part you play in taking care of your own body. It offers meaningful insights to what wholeness and health mean from the energetic medicine viewpoint.

For centuries people around the world have been using medicinal herbs to treat all kinds of conditions and diseases, as well as promote general health and wellbeing. In recent years, herbal remedies have seen a resurgence in popularity, even making their way into the world of conventional medicine.

Herbs have been used over the years to treat depression, high blood pressure, cancer, nausea, joint pain and thousands of other afflictions, to varying effect. Although ancient cultures swore by these natural treatments, it is only in the last decade or so that modern science has accepted medicinal herbs as viable treatments for a number of health conditions.

Medicine, Information and Cure

One of the most intriguing aspects of herbal medicine vs. conventional medicine is that most of the information on medicinal herbs shows that they are generally without side effects. Almost all of the prescription medications on the market, since they are not natural, cause side effects, and sometimes they can be quite serious.

In addition to headaches, stomach issues, allergic reactions and other relatively mild effects, pharmaceutical drugs can cause heart attacks, sexual dysfunction, strokes and even death. Herbal remedies are all natural, usually consisting of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, extracts and other nutrients that can not only treat certain health problems, but also prevent the condition from returning.

What makes these herbs medicinal are the powerful compounds found within the extracts of leaves, stems and roots. These can have an anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-fungal or other effect, depending on the particular herb. This offers a natural treatment option for many different conditions, and can oftentimes be more effective than conventional medications.

Many people unaware of the dangers of prescription drugs, or unaware of the options that exist when it comes to treating a certain ailment or just promoting general health. As such, it is important to learn as much as possible so that you are prepared in case you are faced with a health problem.

Your doctor may be able to recommend another professional or resource to learn more about medicinal herbs and their therapeutic properties. In the mean time, do a little research on your own…you’ll be amazed at what you find.
