Dr Shamini Jain – Healing Ourselves: Biofield Science and the Future of Health


What can biofield science and spiritual healing contribute to the understanding and treatment of mental health and chronic disease?

 

The world has been facing significant health crises – not only from communicable diseases such as the recent viral pandemic, but from chronic disease and mental health. 970 million people worldwide have a mental health or substance abuse disorder. Chronic disease kills 41 million people a year, accounting for 71% of deaths globally.

Separatist, reductionist views of the body and mind have not only been shown to be limited in their understanding of the science of healing, but also inadequate for providing treatment options for mental health disorders and chronic disease.

Emerging evidence in biofield science and biofield/spiritual healing, including practices such as laying-on-of-hands, Reiki, Healing Touch, and energy psychology approaches suggest that these therapies are efficacious for reducing suffering in a variety of patients with chronic disease and mental health issues.

Effects of these therapies in controlled research with animals and cells demonstrate that biofield healing approaches can affect physiologically relevant endpoints including cancer spread and tumour size, as well as other aspects of hormonal and immune function. This talk will highlight the best of evidence behind these approaches, as well as explore the ontological frameworks from indigenous wisdom traditions that help to explain the effects. The relevance of this ontological expansion for understanding health, healing, and the mitigation of suffering globally will be discussed.
