The field of energetic medicine is alive.
Energetic Medicine measures the subtle energies of the body.
In the past, measurement of these subtleties have mainly only been done through techniques using subtle muscle control of the therapist. These include muscle testing, point probes applied to the skin, and also measurements using other techniques such as web pads, pendulums, etc. All of these have now been found to be under complete control of the therapist and are therefore questionable when measuring the patient's energy. This was a limit of past technology.
Energetic Medicine measures the body electric. To measure the body electric we have to measure the amperage, (which is measuring the amount of electrical ions in the body). The pressure behind these ions is known as voltage (which results from hormonal conditions of the body). The amperage corresponds to the idea of the life force - in other words the charge of the human battery. Whereas the voltage responds to the willpower - the amount of hormonal energy that pushes the body electric. As this electricity and electrical factors go through the body they are impeded, or have natural resistance. In the field of energetic medicine many people only measure the resistance. To truly measure the body electric we need to measure the voltage and amperage as well as resistance. The basic analysis of electronics will tell us that we need to know the basic voltage, amperage, and resistance of an electrical circuit in order to understand the circuit. This is an increase in technology.
Another factor of the body electric is the time of reactivity that the human body relates to its external environment. We know that athletes can react to beyond 1/50th of a second to the external environment. We find that the average person has an electrical or an unconscious reactivity to the external environment that is approximately 1/100th of a second. This varies between patient to patient. Calibration is needed if we're going to truly use energetic medicine.
