Advancements in the fields of neuroscience and psychoneuroimmunology, and systems of biology are expanding our understanding of the mind-body connection. Science is starting to consider a more integrated perspective on health that expands current models of medicine to allow for the wisdom of ancient methods of healing when considering our health and states of wellness.
Biofield science is bridging the gap between ancient philosophies such as Ayurvedic, Chinese, Native American, and Tibetan to consider the core components that facilitate healing. Current mind-body practices such as yoga, mindfulness or meditation, acupuncture, QiGong, and touch-based methods are steadily gaining recognition and evidence as helpful adjuncts to our current models of health care.
The term biofield has been accepted as a medical subject heading by the National Library of Medicine. Organizations such as the Consciousness and Healing Initiative (CHI) defines the study of Biofield Science as an exploration of the view that molecules, cells, and organs of living systems communicate via fields of energy and information that serve as additional means of self-regulation to maintain health.
Biofield methods are based on the understanding that the human biofield, which extends approximately five feet on both sides of the body and three feet above the head and below the feet, contains all of our memories that are embedded as energy and information in standing waves within its structure. Similar to the brain, the biofield holds specific emotions, states of mind, and relational templates. It also contains the blueprint for how the physical body organizes itself. Stressful experiences cause aspects of the body (self) to split off and dis-embody from the larger unified system. This gives rise to pathological oscillations in the standing waves acting as noise and causes a breakdown in the order, structure, and function of the physiology. Beliefs are held in the biofield. Some beliefs have been internalized while others are projected onto others and the world. This includes personal and collective belief systems.
Biofield methods focus on locating, discharging, and neutralizing dissonant frequencies that give rise to physical and emotional imbalance, so that the energy is returned to the body to facilitate order, structure, and function to a given organ or bodily system. These energy blocks may result from your personal experiences from conception to your current age and also intergenerational patterns of energy.
Biofield Therapies are noninvasive therapies in which the practitioner explicitly works with a client’s biofield to stimulate an organic response that returns the body to its natural resonance of health and restoration.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine has funded a round of frontier medicine research grants in biofield science.
