One of the most interesting things I learned when I was at medical school was the evaluation of a patient. I soon realized that the difference between a very skilled clinician and an ordinary one was the effectiveness of their clinical evaluation. The questionnaire, a collection of symptoms and clinical signs, could quickly reveal the majority of issues facing the patient, even before lab tests were requested.
But never forget that the main goal for the conventional doctor is to find out what’s wrong with the patient. What’s wrong with you! In other words, medical doctors are trained to find the disease, and the better they are at that, the better the doctor is considered to be.
Later on, perhaps the most important realization I had through applying an expanded integrative approach is that patient evaluation is not just about finding the problem or disease. Additional information about their bioterrain (biophysical, emotional, mental, and spiritual terrain) can be obtained which, when all areas are addressed, leads to restoring them to optimal health.
This is what quantum integrative medicine is about—seeing the unseen or the immaterial aspects of the individual in order to grasp a different quality of information that can be categorized as the vital, mental, or supramental levels of a subtle energy anatomy. It is about understanding the individual globally, looking at parameters that not only guide a doctor to an understanding of what is going wrong, but also to the discovery of which elements need to be rebalanced so that the full potential of the client can be restored.
In this process of evaluation, the quantum integrative doctor looks at an individual from a different perspective than a conventional Western doctor does, considering a broader spectrum of health parameters in order to lead the client toward their full potential. They will ask questions, such as:
What frames of reference will I use not only to evaluate what’s going on with my patient but also to assess their improvement?
How long should a client be on a particular diet?
Are the energetic therapies being used making a difference in the energy field of the client?
