According to Dr. Richard Gerber, physician, author, and foremost researchers and practitioners of vibrational medicine:
Vibrational medicine is 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, sometimes referred to as ‘complementary’ medicine.
The vibrational approach, especially the subtle energy medicine approach, works by injecting selective frequencies of energy into the body that encourage the body’s own self-healing systems to do the work. Some of the most elegant approaches in the future for healing cancer and AIDS may involve the use of selective frequencies in energy medicine or even the use of electromagnetic fields in healing.
The potential of non-invasive energy medicine to benefit people at a much lower cost is phenomenal…. Vibrational medicine has the potential to scan the body not only for illness states, but also for a disposition toward illness, that is, a pre-physical energetic disturbance that will lead to illness. There are a variety of diagnostic systems that are evolving. One of these involves assessing the acupuncture meridian system. If[…] disturbances in the etheric body [can be determined] before physical disease develops, then [there is a] basis for a whole new level of preventive medicine, which [has] never really seen before.
