Qi is the innate intelligence that allows for the organization and functioning of all bodily systems whether it be the cardiovascular, endocrine, or nervous systems. The best “scientific” explanation of the mechanism behind Qi in the body can be described as the vital bioelectric energy currents & bio-magnetic fields that are needed for cellular activity and healthy tissue, organs & organ systems. Qi is the innate intelligence that informs all of these neuro-chemical processes in the body.
Acupuncture works by stimulating the energy centers/points in the body which restores both the normal electric field and the natural bio-electric currents that damaged tissues need to regenerate. The pathology of dis-Ease/stress creates constriction in the body that cuts off the bio-electric current, aka no Qi in the body, no flow of vital energy. Resulting in no blood circulation which means no cellular respiration. This allows toxins/pathogens to accumulate in the body and thus Disease manifests.
How does Acupuncture reverse disease? Simply, by restoring the person’s own innate intelligence of bio-electric currents & bio-magnetic fields in the body – the Qi.
