Dr. Norman Shealy and Dr. Dawson Church are considered two of the pioneers in the field of energy medicine and the epigenetic movement. Dr. Norman Shealy, founder of the American Holistic Medical Association and world-famous neurosurgeon, and Dr. Dawson Church, one of the foremost writers and researchers in vibrational healing, epigenetics, and the editor/author of many books on these subjects, explain the fundamentals of energy medicine, its many applications to common ailments, and the latest scientific research in their book, Soul Medicine.
They suggest that the cutting edge medicine of the 21st century is not to be found entirely in invasive therapies like drugs and surgeries. It is in those disciplines that used to be regarded as ‘soft’ medicine: prayer, intention, energy healing, acupressure, and similar therapies.
Overwhelming evidence from hundreds of scientific studies are showing that these safe, non-invasive approaches are often more effective, sometimes many times more effective, than conventional medicine. It should be said that conventional medicine has an indisputable place in healng and recovery; it’s simply that we shouldn’t be under the impression that it’s our only port of call.
From our perspective, no one healing modality has all the answers and the more open-minded, expansive and progressive in our thinking that we are, the more likely we are to find ‘the best fit’ for each individual.
