For example, Becker found that certain types of electricity could de-differentiate cells, turning them back into the sort of 'blank canvas' cells that human embryos have, that can then turn into anything in the body, from an eye to a leg, to an artery.
Imagine the potential for healing…
But then came the 'downside': certain types of electricity could also encourage malignant growth of cells, leading to cancer, and a whole range of other disastrous illnesses.
The very same processes could lead to growth, healing and renewal, or 'growth', destruction and death.
At that point, Becker's funding was cut off, and he had to stop his experiments. (OK, maybe it would have lead to a cure for cancer that actually worked because it really understood the real causes, but there was a whole bunch of money to be made from i-Phones, so sorry pal…)
The point is, Becker, and other of his colleagues, proved with Western scientific techniques that the body did have some 'animating force' guiding its physiological processes, that was closely aligned with electricity.
This has profound implications for you and your healthcare.
Firstly - it proved that the fundamental principles of Chinese Medicine, that describes human health in terms of energy pathways called 'meridians', were scientifically correct.
Next, it proved that there is far more to health than merely balancing chemical equations within the body, as the mechanists (and drug companies…) claim.
And lastly, it showed that human health is holistic, spanning the three dimensions of body, mind and soul together.
Here's how: the body does create chemical effects and processes. WHY it does that, is the big mystery: Becker and Chinese Medicine say that electrical impulses produced within the body programs these physiological reactions.
The mechanist view prevalent in Western Medicine has no idea WHY these things actually happen. Emotions also cause - and block - electrical impulses in the body, which is why your emotions can have such a severe impact on your health.
And where does God fit into the equation? Great question!
The human soul is a spark of the Divine. When you're truly connected to God and your soul, your body's energy (or electrical impulses) are 'plugged in' to their source, and flowing at maximum potential.
When your soul becomes disconnected from its powersource, your body's energy (electricity) weakens, with huge implications for your mental, emotional and physical health. (JEMI's free 'Talk to God and Fix Your Health course sets out the links very clearly and systematically.)
So that's the story of how Western Medicine lost its soul, and why it treats people solely as bodies.
Hopefully, as more people become informed about what cutting-edge science is REALLY discovering about health, and especially how 'unmeasurable' things like emotions and spiritual connection and belief can and do impact a person's physiological processes, Western Medicine will get past its vested interests and 'mechanist' approach to regain its spiritual dimension again.
But I wouldn't hold your breath.
