According to Dr. Jim Oschman, a leader in the field of energy medicine, modern research science is beginning to shed light on the role of natural "energy forces" within the human body that were previously thought to be inexplicable. "Energy medicine is medicine based on the appreciation that living systems have energy fields inside of them and around them and that these fields play important roles in physiology, regulatory biology [and] regulating processes that are going on inside the organism," Dr. Oschman says.
Dr. Oz talks with Dr. Oschman about the fundamentals of energy medicine and how scientists are measuring the ways in which various forms of energy interact with living systems. They also discuss alternative healing techniques, such as acupuncture and Reiki, which Dr. Oschman says are also measurably demonstrating how energy can be channeled to improve the body's health and well-being.
