Understanding Your Energetic Immune System

  • We find that most people step into our office when they are on a path of self discovery, want to be in charge of their own health or things in their life have deteriorated to such a level that they are willing to try almost anything.
  • The ideas of energy movement, acupuncture and healers can seem very foreign when we first hear about it.
  • When we talk to people about their energetic hygiene and health, we try to relate it something they are already somewhat familiar with - science and western medicine.

 

 

  • You will usually hear us describe this as your energetic immune system.
  • Science tells us that we are made of energy and that energy is all around us.
  • We try to describe your enteric health similarly to how you would relate to your physical health.
  • We know that at any given time there are microscopic organisms around us.
  • We may not see them, but we know that they are there because science has proven them to be there.
  • Germ Theory was first documented as being proposed in 1546 by Girolamo Fracastoro.
  • This was not widely accepted until the mid to late 1800's thanks to the ongoing works of Louis Pasteur and the previous observations and studies of cells conducted by Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek and Robert Hooke.
  • Just because this theory was not popular, or able to be proven by the scientific methods available at the time, did not make it any less authentic.

 

  • We try to related these ideas to our energy and the energy around us.
  • We refer to this as your energetic immune system.
  • Just like our physical immune system it can be broken into two basic parts - autoimmune and innate.
  • These two parts can be broken down much further, but we like to focus on the three main subgroups that they are comprised of - the body, mind and spirit.
  • Our innate energetic immune system is what we are born with.
  • We have natural defenses, boundaries and walls that have been developed through thousands of years of evelution to help keep us safe as we interact with our environment.

 

  • Just like our own physical innate immune system, our energetic innate immune system accounts for more than 99% of our immune system.
  • Our energetic auto-immune system is very similar to our physical auto-immune system as well, and like the physical comprises less than 1% of our deffenses.
  • If your energetic innate immune system is well care for our energetic auto-immune system is not even activated.
  • When this is activated our bodies have a tendancy to reroute our normal energy patterns to keep our bodies functioning and to evict any foreign energy not in alignment with our highest good and devine light.

 

  • We are fortunate that we have this energetic memory and backup defense for our energetic immune system, but it can also do us a disservice at the same time.
  • We will usually talk to you about how it takes 30 days to form a habit.
  • For this reason you are expected to commit to weekly treatment for at least your first month of receiving acupuncture.
  • This conversation usually comes up due to a bad habit that is present, that your body most likely formed while protecting itself from a foreign energy.
  • There are very specific things we can do to help keep our energetic immune systems running optimally.
  • In general we refer to these things as "maintaining balance."
  • "Maintaining balance" differs in some ways for everyone because as individuals we all have different underlying imbalances.
  • There are a few basics that are universal on the body, mind and spirit levels: good nutrition, your grounding, your energetic hand washing, energetic waste removal.
  • When you come in for treatment we discuss your energetic imbalances, the weaknesses in your energetic immune system and go over what you can be doing in addition to acupuncture and your regular practices to help heal and strengthen yourself.
  • You will usually hear about theses additional practices as homework.
  • These may be as simple as adjusting your diet or drinking more water.
  • If you would like more information on energetic boundaries and how to help heal yourself we offer a free 30 minute consultation.
