In a wonderful article, William Leslie Bergman, M.D. Medical Director, Hahnemann Health Associates, New York, wrote about new energy medicine era:
“We are truly on the verge of an incredibly unique time in human history. In every area of human endeavor, and no less so in health and medicine, a revolution in thinking and behavior is taking place. While, at this moment, not everyone can appreciate these changing patterns and the new opportunities that are available to us, the next 20 years, we feel, will witness an unprecedented “new renaissance” for the advancement of mankind.
On every level, we are witnessing the blending, integration, and synthesis of many concepts, methods, philosophies, and cultures of health and medicine, which have as their common goal the solution of the problems presented by human illness and disease. As we come to the final years of the 20th Century, and prepare ourselves for the 20th, we envision the roles of modern transportation and communication as helping to bring our world closer together. So that we can learn from one another, share insights and discoveries, and uplift the quality of life for the entire human family’.
A synthesis of Eastern and Western medicine, of modern with traditional methods and of those, which are conventional with those, which are new and innovative, is taking place rapidly about us. In this context, a growing realization of the need for meta-physical and even spiritual concepts to compliment material technology is emerging, for the psychological aspect to be unified with the physiological, and for new models of health, illness and cure to be developed.
A new era of worldwide cooperation in the research of the cause, treatment and prevention of illness is emerging, and we are truly on the verge of a new higher-dimensional level of human existence. We can all join in the process; human history is waiting.”
TCM & ACUPUNCTURE:
Body energy called Qi is generated in internal organs and circulates throughout the body, forming paths near the skin surface called meridians. Acupuncture points (AP) are those points on the skin located on meridians where Qi can be manipulated.
There are also 8 extraordinary channels in acupuncture that are considered to be reservoirs supplying Qi and blood to the twelve regular channels. These are believed to have a strong connection to the kidney. The meridians are shown in the figures. Dotted along these meridians are more than 400 acupuncture points, classified by WHO. (There may be as many as 2000 points in use for different treatments.) These are listed by name, number and the meridian to which they belong.
