Human biofield science is an emerging field of study that aims to provide a scientific foundation for understanding the complexities of energy medicine. By furthering our scientific knowledge of the human biofield, we arrive at a better understanding of the foundations of biology as well as the phenomena that have been described as “energy medicine.” Energy medicine, is the application of extremely low-level signals to the body, including energy healer interventions and bio-electromagnetic device-based therapies.
The human biofield or biological field is an emerging science with a complex energy field that is engaged in the generation, maintenance, and regulation of biological homeodynamics.
Human Biofield as a conduit of information
As a regulator and mediator of biological interactions, the biofield appears intimately connected with information delivery within the organism. The biofield thus holds and shares information that is vital for biocommunication and bioregulation of the organism.
Toward an evolving definition of biofield -
The human biofield has been studied for the last 40 years as researchers have looked to measure, and study energy and the role of energy in the development of disease. It is believed that when energy or chi is stagnant this blockage of chi can eventually corrupt the biological system, thus creating disease.
The human biofield concept, is an aspect of the bioenergetic system. The bioenergetic system is the same system that acupuncture is built from with chi running through the body. When chi is off balance or experiences blockages through unresolved emotions, toxicity, chemical, or poor nutrition these breakdowns then develop into disease on the biochemical level. It is believed that if we are able to comfort stagnations in energy up front, we are able to mitigate disease process at its inception.
The family of energy healing practices that have been widely practiced since antiquity, now called biofield therapies, may involve biocommunication and/or energy transfer through the biofield. While the biofield concept is a useful construct to guide new research on energy healing and other CAM modalities, it is also a requisite for a better understanding of contemporary developments in biophysics and biology. Moreover, information connected with the biofield may serve as a bridge between mind and body, which is fundamental to understanding mind-body interactions. We use the human biofield as a diagnostic tool within our practice as it is more sensitive in measurement than the MRI, CT, PET Scan, or even thermography device.
