Fix your Qi, fix your Pain

If electro-therapy can cure, if food can cure, if meditation can cure, they must have a similar force, maybe relatable frequencies. Chinese medicine thinks of this energy as Qi (Kaptchuk, 2000), but modern science wants to understand more about it. Understanding how it feels is a really good step in the transition from overuse of modern medicine to balancing it with ancient methods.

This FDA approved heating and Pulsed Electromagnetic Field device, seems to stimulate our knee to opening up inactive areas; areas immobilized by our natural reactions to pain. We have proven sedentary life-styles to be harmful and cause us to be more vulnerable to disease (Denbow, 2014). It seems movement, temperature, and electromagnetic field frequencies provide similar ways of stimulus to bring energy from the diet into the area in need of healing.

When you are actively focusing on the present moment, you become more in tune with your perception of pain. You can structurally change your brain to enhance pain tolerance by weeding out any negativity that arises during mediation, while allowing only positive perception (Denbow, 2014). Stress can kill probiotics and enzymes, so meditation provides means for life to thrive (Denbow, 2014; Desbordes, 2011). Meditation can be guided with Tibetan singing bowls or frequency focused soundtracks.

And light therapy is great and all, but we can get a well rounded range of frequencies free from the sun (Denbow, 2014). Adding nutrients, probiotics, and meditation to the routine can compensate for any over exposure.
