NES 4008 Energy Medicine II Credit 4

Description:

A revolutionary system that reestablishes the proper flow of information to the body’s energetic fields to promote health.

  • Presents a new integrative model of the energetic physiology of the human body (the human body-field) and its influence on health
  • Shows that a root cause of the disease is due to information blockages in the body-field
  • Introduces Infoceuticals, liquid remedies that help the human body-field process vital information to engage the physical body’s self-healing abilities.

After decades of research, a system has been formulated that unites the meridian system of traditional Chinese medicine with quantum wave theory to provide the first comprehensive link between the human body’s biochemistry and bioenergetics. The course explains that we each have a body-field based on twelve meridian-like channels that process and coordinate information throughout the body and that our health depends on the proper flow and communication of information through these channels.

In this course, a new system is explained-called the revolutionary Nutri-Energetics System, which uses Infoceuticals–liquids infused with organic colloidal minerals that are imprinted with corrective quantum electrodynamic information–to remedy distortions and blockages in the information flow of the body-field. The imprinted information acts as a magnetic signpost to engage the body’s self-healing ability.

Using positive reinforcement, this course begins by reminding thesis writers that being able to devote themselves to a project that truly interests them can be a pleasurable adventure. The author of the textbook encourages them to pay close attention to their writing method in order to discover their individual work strategies that promote productivity; to stop feeling fearful that they may disappoint their advisors or family members, and to tailor their theses to their own writing style and personality needs. Using field-tested strategies, the student is assisted through the entire thesis-writing process, offering advice on choosing a topic and an adviser, on disciplining one’s self to work at least fifteen minutes each day; setting short-term deadlines, on revising and defining the thesis, and on life and publication after the dissertation.
