Not long ago your skin was believed to be your body's largest organ. Advances in medical science have changed this.
In his book, “The Genie in Your Genes,” Dawson Church reveals the recent understanding of how a previously overlooked organ functions, linking this to the potential for each of us to take direct control of our health and happiness through prayer.
Any system with complex functions must have the means to coordinate their action. We are no different.
In your body this takes place through the much overlooked system of connective tissue encasing your organs through a complex including tendons and ligaments. Running through every part this matrix, made of collagen fibers, built from molecules arranged in highly regular arrays, are the lines through which energy and information pass.
The system functions as a liquid crystal semi-conductor.
These lines of fibers are the system on which Eastern medicine has been based for thousands of years, called meridians. Chinese healers discovered points along the meridians could be stimulated to achieve the balance of energies, restoring health. These practices were memorialized in the reign of the Yellow Emperor, Huang-ti, who reigned from 2697 to 2597 BC and is viewed as the initiator of Chinese civilization.
This knowledge also existed in Europe thousands of years earlier, but was lost.
Tattoos found on the body of the Ice Man, dated from 3300 BC, discovered in the summer of 1991 in the Alps, correspond closely with the same meridian lines used by the Chinese.
In Western medicine pacemakers are an example of the return to the use of energy for health and healing. The use of energy in medicine is expanding rapidly.
Western scientists had to be able to see the microscopic structure of this system to accept how it functions alongside the chemical system they already understood. Now, this is happening.
The communication/energy system in your body works with your body's chemical system, synchronizing the whole. It also reaches into the cell nucleus, and into the DNA, turning your DNA on, and off. No part is separate from this internal matrix - and these communications take place much faster than can be accounted for by traditional physics.
Scientific experiments confirm prayers from the faithful can heal - even when the afflicted don't know someone is praying for them. The power is in our hands. With faith, nothing is impossible.
