The following was written by my good friend Dr. Richard Davis and is titled The 4th Channel The Biophysics of Health Wellness Healing. This will be a multiple series post.

Biophysics of Health Wellness Healing
Let me preface my remarks by admitting that I am a non-traditional, academic rebel. I am a certified out-of-the-box thinker who has authored over 400 patents and trademarks; so my remarks here will not be appreciated by most. That’s OK. They will eventually come around…
My intention in this paper is to relate some essential truths and foundational principles of biophysics and how they relate to a more comprehensive understanding of health, wellness and healing. Please understand that I am in no way attempting to disparage or diminish the importance of the “softer sciences” that explore the emotional, psychological and spiritual components of our Nature, (which I believe are also vitally important to our well-being); however, I think that these areas of discussion are best left for others who are much more qualified.
Most of us have a pretty good idea of what we mean by health and wellness. It’s when our bodies break down, and illness descends upon us, that our lack of understanding of what defines healing – really begins to show. Fortunately, our bodies have the innate ability to heal – if we would only follow a few simple precepts. It’s really not all that complicated – as you will see.
The advent of an illness, especially a chronic, debilitating or life-threatening disease is one of the most dreaded and devastating of all human experiences. I should know. Not just because I am a physician, but also because I am a patient – having defeated Stage IV colorectal cancer without using the traditional approach of chemotherapy or radiation.
However, that is another story for another day…
Fortunately for me and all of us, healing is a ubiquitous phenomenon experienced by every living thing. It is not a miraculous, magical, or supernatural event. It is a natural, albeit complex process of directed homeostasis (metabolic balance) that results from the body’s expenditure of a significant amount of the energy that we generate each day to maintain a dynamic state of physiologic equilibrium that we call ‘health.’
Since the beginning of recorded history, healers from civilizations around the world have sought to describe their observations of this harmony in numerous ways. Although their understanding goes by many names (Chi, Prana, Life Force, Life Energy, etc.), all of them are attempting to articulate the same common element that is fundamental to healing – energy flow. To be continued.
