Vibrational Medicine cites hundreds of scientific studies that support the energy model of health and healing and presents the theoretical foundation for such therapies as homeopathy and acupuncture.

What is “vibrational medicine” and what can it mean to our health? According to Lisa’s guest today, Dr. Richard Gerber, it’s a diagnostic and healing approach to illness using energy in various forms and frequencies. As a therapy, vibrational medicine is the application of different types of energy for healing, including approaches as traditional as X-ray and radiation therapy for cancer, the use of electrical nerve stimulation for treating pain, and electromagnetic field stimulators for accelerating the healing of fractured bones. Even full spectrum light is used for treating seasonal affective disorders or the ‘winter blues’. However, vibrational medicine also covers the more subtle forms of treatment such as acupuncture, homeopathy, flower essences, therapeutic touch, and that sort of genre. The latter involve using subtle life-force medicine, but they are energetic therapies nonetheless. This is the spectrum from the more traditional to a range of therapies that stress treatment of the whole person. You’ll find out even more by listening to this interview!
