Bioenergy documentary draws crowd

A documentary on energy healing comes to the marketplace.

But whether this 'challenges' medicine or complements it remains to be seen:

A new documentary that challenges conventional medicine to expand its understanding of human biology will premier at The Living Matrix - The Science of Healing conference in London on March 13, 2009. Produced by Harry Massey and directed by Greg Becker, The Living Matrix uncovers evidence-based research in bioenergetic medicine that reveals energy and information fields - not genetics - drive human physiology and biochemistry.

Compassionate Intention Experiment
DVDs of the film will be available at U.S. $19.95 at the premier, throughout the conference, and from The Living Matrix website beginning March 13.

Woven among interviews with world's most respected experts in bioenergetic medicine, dynamic 3-D graphic animation takes The Living Matrix viewer on a journey deep into the structure of the human body to illustrate how quantum biology influences health. Through in-person interviews and dramatized video vignettes that document the stories of people who recovered from chronic illness - including a five-year-old boy born with cerebral palsy, an osteopathic doctor with a brain tumor, and a housewife bedridden with chronic fatigue syndrome - the film demonstrates the effectiveness of bioenergetic medicine where traditional medicine has not succeeded.

Unlike other documentary films about alternative medicine, the film brings together academic and independent researchers, practitioners, and science journalists - such as British biologist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, American medical doctor and former Stanford University professor Dr. Bruce Lipton, and former US astronaut Dr. Edgar Mitchell - whose work reveals scientific evidence that bioenergetics play as significant a role as biochemistry in human physiology and biology. In the documentary, they explore bioenergetic principles of the human body field and informational health care, which may be the most important factors influencing health and wellness. They also articulate the concepts and define new terminology to help advance an understanding of these principles.

''At the most fundamental level, all matter - including the human body - can be described in physics terms as fields of information and structured energy,'' said Massey. ''Information is the controlling factor of the body's energy fields, and therefore is the most important component for health. Western medicine has yet to move outside its comfort zone to embrace these revolutionary findings, which can have profound implications not only for medicine, but for the pharmaceutical industry and other health-related areas.''

Becker explained, "Some people spend years suffering, mostly in a conventional medical system that restricts their choices and limits their wellbeing by dismissing bioenergetic medicine as the placebo effect or spontaneous remissions. However, many people are embracing new approaches." He added, "The Living Matrix offers them deeper insight into how and why bioenergetic and informational health care works. It invites traditional practitioners to consider a total integration between conventional and alternative medicine."

The Conference
The Living Matrix conference will be held at King's College in London. It will bring together many of the participants in the film - such as Lipton, as well as internationally known healer Dr. Eric Pearl, HeartMath Institute's Dr. Rollin McCraty, biophysicist Dr. James Oschman, acupuncture professor Peter Fraser and best-selling author Lynne McTaggart - among others, to offer in-depth workshops and presentations.

Following the conference in London, the film will screen at Dr. Pearl's Reconnective Healing Mastery Conferences in Los Angeles September 24th and in Amsterdam November 19th and at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) Conference in Tucson June 17-21. Throughout the world, The Living Matrix will be shown at many other conferences that will be listed on The Living Matrix website. It will be distributed through publishers worldwide.

Consumers Seeking Control Over Health
Consumers increasingly are relying on energy medicine and other complementary and alternative medicines to gain greater control over their health, to treat chronic diseases for which traditional medicine has few options, to reduce healthcare costs, and to avoid the side effects of drugs and other conventional modalities. According to the World Health Organization, alternative medicine is becoming more popular in the northern hemisphere, and up to 80% of people in the south use it as part of primary health care. The WHO reports that consumers in the United Kingdom spend US $2.3 billion per year on complementary or alternative medicine. In the United States, 38% of adults (4 in 10) and 12% of children (1 in 9) use some form of complementary and alternative medicine, according to a 2007 study conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Health. More important, several forms of CAM that incorporate information-medicine principles - such as meditation, deep breathing, massage therapy, and yoga - showed the highest increase in use among Americans in the last five years.
