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?
Another major point in developing this new model of observation was to establish a methodology for collecting and organizing the diverse qualities of these parameters in reference to different levels of information. If we are looking for what has to be done to bring the client to their full potential, this obviously creates a different perspective. In defining this new and more profound perspective, the limited scope of a materialistic approach based solely on anatomy, chemistry, and biology was insufficient.
The frames of reference for observation I chose were from systems of healing more ancient than conventional Western medicine itself. I found a solid basis in establishing this model by referring to the ideas incorporated in ancient systems of healing, such as Chinese medicine and acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, and naturopathy. It took me many more years to find the common ground for all modalities of medicine—through the depths of reality as revealed by quantum physics.
So never forget, your doctor’s depth of understanding will be limited by the model of education he/she has received, whether linear or multidimensional (Quantum University). How your doctor looks at you matters, whether their approach is to seek what’s wrong with you and treat your symptoms (disease-based model), or to look at your full potential by examining your bioenergetic terrain to discover the factors that can restore you to optimal health.
