IM-701 – Theoretical Principles of Integrative Medicine
(formerly New Quantum Context for Medicine)
Dr. Paul Drouin, Dr. Amit Goswami
IMED600 – 1.1 Part 1 – (Dr. Paul Drouin)
Welcome to Theoretical Principles of Integrative Medicine, IMED600 (IM-701). I will be doing the
first module of this program, and then Dr. Amit Goswami will explore more in-depth what we call
the theoretical principles or the new concepts of medicine. It’s very important, sometimes we
don’t realize that behind the whole healthcare, there is a landmark, what I call a footprint that
some Westerners associate with the scientific model that we are adopting and also, as I see it,
with a philosophical or a metaphysical approach. And it’s like an environment in that we are
used to it, and we just take it for granted and buy into everything that is said. But sometimes we
have to revise and refresh our perspective and lay out a new foundation. You will see how
important it is and this lesson is true. What I’d also like to tie together is what these theoretical
principles are that come again and again, that is the brain of what integrative medicine and
quantum integrative medicine is.
So there is a movement now in medicine coming from all angles, and one of the key books
would be this Integrative Medicine textbook that we will refer to that already with hundreds of
doctors redefining the medical approach, where the focus is re-centered on the client. So there
is a new dynamic now that is being proposed. Why? Because healthcare is in crisis and, as I
repeat so many times, the way to solve the problem is not necessarily to address the economic
issues, but to address fundamentally the way we practice healing and whether healing is
actually practiced anymore. So, these questions are fundamental, and these landmarks, these
theoretical principles will be repeated again and again in the curriculum of this university. But
they are the repair that helps us to understand this total makeover of medicine. There is actually
like a re-makeover of medicine, and to understand what’s going on, you need these kinds of
landmarks, and this is what we’ll explain in the next hour or two.
A shift in medicine is happening that we call integrative medicine, and to understand the shift we
need this description here. So the doctor of tomorrow, in the next decade, or in probably 20 or
30 years, will be approaching health with more depth in understanding, compared to the
conventional medicine and, as we’ve said so many times, that is referring to a materialistic
model, or reductionist model, based on this Cartesian model of the duality of mind and body.
And there will be a time when we reflect on what is going on now. We’ll understand that in 10
years or in 20 years. we will be a century ahead in how we are approaching health.
The same thing in the history now. When we look at how we were dealing with mental health
and how we were dealing with infectious disease and other situations, what kinds of approaches
were used 100 years or 200 years ago. Those looked very primitive compared to what we are
doing today. So the same thing will happen in the next decade. I’d like to see this doctor in
integrative medicine, The Doctor is In. Remember the doctor in Star Trek, this doctor, but now
you see in his hand is smartphone technology. And we will also explain how looking at the
individual and monitoring their health, instead of monitoring disease, with another technology
that is also available for the client, will be part of this shift to this new integrative medicine.
The old doctor, and also part of this swing, because when I practiced medicine 30, 40 years ago
as a clinician, a family doctor, emergency doctor, I was working also in Northern Canada with
the Indian and Inuit. So I probably have a good idea about medicine, and the way I was relating
with the client is totally revised with these new theoretical principles.
So, the whole syllabus of this course… we will cover all these subjects. The course will be
divided into eight modules, and I’m teaching the first one. Of course, Dr. Goswami will go more
in-depth in the science of quantum physics relating to the art of healing. First we will speak
about these theoretical principles of integrative medicine. We will also touch on the physical
biology in the other modules, consciousness and quantum physics, a conceptual basis of a
philosophy of integrative medicine, basics for integrative adult body medicine and body type,
mind-body medicine, and Quantum Worldview. That will be the last module in Quantum
Integrative Medicine. So let’s go on doing this introduction. So in the next hour or two, we will
touch these subjects.
First, the reform of healthcare at its base. And this is one of my favorite subjects because,
again, it’s like it’s addressing what is taught in the university, how we train doctors in medicine
and in natural medicine. What is the “scientific model” that we refer to? What is the philosophy
that is associated with it? We already have touched on this in another class. And what is now,
from this philosophy, the scientific model that goes along, and not only that, what are the
repairs? And this is what I call the footprint of this medicine and the footprint of this new
integrative medicine. So we will compare these two models to really show what are the
boundaries here and where, in what terrain we are adventuring ourselves and what we were
Re-centering the healing relationship on the client – this is one of the major themes in integrative
medicine today because we have gone in the past through a model of relation where all the
expectation is on the doctor. It’s like the doctor owns and masters the knowledge of what should
be and is where the secrets of healing or restoring health reside. But at the end of the day, this
means pharmaceuticals and surgery, and some of them are very limited, if we think in terms of
chronic disease, psychosomatic disease, aging and prevention, and so on.
Signature of Quantum Physics. We will see on what we draw. This is part of this footprint, what
are the principles that will directly apply to medicine? And these are important landmarks. So it’s
like we are changing our frame of reference, and we will speak about this. This is very
important. As a medical doctor, when I was practicing and said I have this, I had my point of
reference. I was trained with a framework of understanding. When the client walked in, I had a
ritual. This was according to this philosophy of medicine, to this model of science where I tried
to establish a diagnosis based on the observation of parameters specific to illness, labs and
tests, and at the end of the day, I’d end up with a diagnosis which is to give the client a
prognosis that most of the time was not necessarily positive.
So in other words, I was framing this way of looking at the individual from a specific point of
view, and as it goes, the, I want to say the journey, but this path is heading toward, maybe some
research has been done, 100s, not even 100s of diagnostics, and at the end of the day maybe
the doctor has to choose between 20 medications. So we think that medicine is complex, but it’s
like, first of all, a reductionist approach. If the family doctor can not resolve [the issue], then he’s
sent to specialists, but at the end of the day, this funnel to diagnose. And then through an
understanding of medicine that is most of the time associated with the model of biology and
evolution that goes with it. In other words, the survival of the fittest. The one who is the
strongest, has the best genes, will survive either the surgery or the spectrum of medications that
you may use.
So you understand this is, and then after years, of course, this becomes, reflects these what I
call theoretical principles, connects these, written on the walls, and everybody is just taking for
granted this way of doing things. And now, because why do we have a reflection? We have a
reflection because we are heading to a health crisis. It’s like the crux, as I see, to this way of
thinking, of this model of science, of this approach to health that is unaffordable. So now we are
shifting towards what we call integrative medicine, and an integrative medicine imprinted with
the understanding of quantum physics.
So the other chapters will be speaking about the linear to the multidimensional. We will speak
also about broadening our understanding of anatomy from a physical model to the subtle
energetic model. We will also speak about the fact that how to evaluate the client differently,
now more in terms of positive health, parameters of health, and also we will, at the end,
compare these different components of this integrative medicine that I call pro-consciousness
medicine and what are the expectations for the future? So, we have a lot to see in this next
And this is preparation because this first intro, the intention is to create a bridge with the
concepts of quantum physics that will be explained in the next seven other modules. Dr.
Goswami will go more in-depth, but in some way, it’s my responsibility to give you the link with
the practice of medicine, or natural medicine, or coaching, and so on. So it’s on me to bring
these ideas, because someone can say, what does quantum physics have to do in this picture,
how this will change, and how this will apply, and concretely, how this is impacting the terrain,
So, because I have this expertise in integrative medicine – I practiced as a family doctor for
many years and I was also board-certified in natural medicine and licensed in acupuncture and
homeopathy – I was already having this kind of a global, holistic approach to the client. So it
gives me this understanding and expertise to bring all these theoretical principles to this picture
and lend them to the ground of the practice.
So, in my book, Creative Integrative Medicine, I explain that there is a cost associated with an
incomplete medical education. And most of the time, we don’t even think about it. We don’t even
realize what the consequences are of taking for granted the way that we are doing now for the
last 50 years or the last 100 years and then don’t think there are other ways to address health
and prevention in this healthcare. So there is an enormous cost to have a system designed, and
I’m repeating myself again, on disease. We wake up now and realize that this healthcare is
based on the management of disease, not on the management of health. But how to change
that, it’s very difficult. It’s very easy to say, oh, let’s do more prevention, let’s change to the other
side. But how can you do it when the roots of this medicine are based on disease?
And just let me give you a result. The way to participate in prevention in this kind of environment
is like prevention becomes another set of pills, a medication that you take on the cover of the
other one to prevent another condition, another risk factor. In other words, it’s like sometimes,
many times we see this on TV. It’s like if you don’t want to have this problem, it’s this
complication now, you have to take this other medication that has also this side effect, and then
to avoid down the road the other medication, so it’s another one. It’s a prevention based on
dealing and treating disease, and treating it is not healing.
So, we need this reflection now in this course before we head into practicing integrative and
holistic medicine. Why? Because if we don’t change our frame, our understanding, we will just
use an amalgam of natural medicine and natural products the same way we are using
medications. So that will not change the equation. Medical healthcare needs first to be reformed
at its base… Can we look at this slide now? … as the real cost of healing is directly associated
with how healing is practiced in this society. What I mean by this base is how doctors and
healthcare practitioners are initially trained and educated regarding the art of healing.
So this summary, in this book, Creative Integrative Medicine that is in press now, we are
re-editing the book, and then so, of course, I invite you to… maybe you already have received it
when you signed up in the program to look at this preliminary book where I say and I lay out
how the university was done and what is the mission and where all this go and also this vision of
health care that we will also speak during this class.
So from philosophy to science to theoretical principles – we already have seen, and maybe not
all of you have been exposed to this class, we had a course on the philosophy of integrative
medicine. And then we also had a course on holistic health. Now it’s like we go from the
philosophy originally was this kind of reflection on the human being and try to grasp the
complexity of human reality. And then we have this book about originally Plato and Socrates,
especially Plato with the Allegory of the Cave. Allegory has a sense of what was, as a
premonition of quantum physics and Socrates lay out and addressed this oath where we should
be very natural in our approach, not have used any poison and so on, and great respect for life.
But Aristotle already understood the connection between mind and body and he was saying,
poetry is probably superior to science because poetry has intuition. But down the road, after
centuries, Descartes came along and spoke about starting everything from scratch. And this is
where we get this schism between the mind and the body. So Descartes realized that there is
no possibility that these both can move along, and he created a dichotomous system where
mind and body are training apart. And as it goes, Locke and Hume introduced what we call
today Reductionist thinking where it’s like when you look at a watch, you put everything and all
the parts in trying to understand that this would be a way to see how the whole mechanism
works. And then Flexner developed this even further with the technology and the model of
research and science and clinic.
So now we are in the twentieth century and ended up with this model of conventional medicine
based originally on the type, on the philosophy that does not reconcile the mind and body. And
then the model of science that we have addresses only what is matter and can not actually
understand how the mind and body work together. So at the end of the last century came along
quantum physics. Of course quantum physics was at the beginning of the twentieth century, but
quantum physics. Let’s come back to the studio now. The application of quantum physics, first,
the best we could make of it is the atomic bomb right? But now at the end of the twentieth
century, scientists and biologists and I would say the best minds of our times,started to shape
the foundation of medicine. Doctor Bruce Lipton with the new biology challenge, the model of
evolution with epigenetics. Neuroscience also has, through neurofeedback, new discoveries
about how the brain works and how we can map different states, altered states of
consciousness. We have other very impressive contributors like Dr. Joe Dispenza, who explores
the phenomenon of how to change a habit and also creates these altered states of
consciousness and documents them in the laboratory of his weekend of trainings, so, and on
and on. So we will speak about this, and then Doctor Goswami absolutely and others that
present principles of quantum physics that can apply to healing.
So now, at the beginning of this twenty-first century, we gather together a new ground to set
down this integrative medicine which is more scientific. Not saying that all the research is done,
but they are in progress. We also have research now that is backing up what these scientists
are speaking of, with the research with biophotons and others. So you know, this, it’s getting
along together now, and this is what we speak during this next hour. What are the footprints,
what are another new repair, the new boundaries that we will walk and recognize, walk and
recognize this new way of healing. And this is what we call the theoretical principles. So they
don’t come from nowhere. And we have, we compare also the one that medicine has its own
repair and because we assume that they are scientific, but actually it’s questionable because
the model of science on which they are based is not an updated model of science. It’s still based
on what Descartes was speaking about. And then Newton, when he laid out his own model of
physics, he didn’t realize that this will be also implemented in medicine, in healing.
So we still already think to understand a human being on the reductionist model of science
relating to Newtonian physics. So when we, now at the beginning of this century, we have
quantum physics that is implemented in all fields, especially communication and iPhones and so
on. So why is medicine still waiting? What medicine is still waiting to implement these new
concepts that we will speak about? So from reductionist, now we will evolve to a model that we
call a multidimensional model of medicine. And we will explain that in the next hour.
In every philosophy, in every philosophy, scientific models have specific footprints. This is the
way I translate what I call theoretical principles. They are footprints. They have repairs and then,
because I’m in this path now for 40 years, my peers will say, oh, what you’re doing is
non-scientific. What you’re teaching is not scientific. Then, what is this modality of healing that
comes from old, ancient healing like acupuncture or homeopathy and natural medicine and so
on? This is based on principles like vital force and prana and chi, this is non-scientific. So in
other words, now we are changing the bond, we are expanding the boundaries of science
because through quantum physics we start to understand how it works, what is vital force and
chi and prana. We start to understand non-locality. We go beyond the barrier of physical
understanding. We expand the anatomy to the subtle energy. We are expanding, also, the way
to evaluate not in terms of disease but in terms of potentiality.
So these are all the new theoretical principles, the new footprints of this integrative medicine of
the next century. So let’s do this comparison, I’m going from also this textbook, Integrative
Medicine, where you will find the references. So we have the old rules and the new rules. So the
old rules are conventional medicine. And there is no judgment here because everything is an
evolution. But we have to recognize that now it’s shifting. And conventional medicine is where
the care is based primarily on visits. It’s like the more you see the doctor, the more acts are
done because the system is disease oriented so you should get healthier.
But it’s totally the opposite that happens, even if you have increased the cost. And we will see
this in another class, the economics of healthcare have quadrupled in the last… So it’s not, and
no the population is not necessarily healthier for that. Professional autonomy drives variability.
So everything is like more, the balance is more on the side of the doctor, the one who gives the
care and the knowledge, information, professional control, the care, information is in a record.
So everything is empowering the healer, but that creates an imbalance in the relationship where
the healee, the client, is expecting everything from this, from the doctor. So there is less
responsibility, less knowledge on the side of the client. The relation is more, the balance is on
the side of the practitioner. Decision-making is based on training and experience.
Do not harm is an individual responsibility. So I don’t want to touch this because it’s such a
sensitive subject, but “do not harm,” which was one of the principles of the oath of Hippocrates.
I’m not saying intentionally we want to harm, but we create, actually, a system that some
statistics have classified as the third cause of death after cancers and cardiovascular. Iatrogenic
disease that medicine creates because of medical error or rounding mistakes or side effects of
medication, so this is serious. I did a blog on this and also short clips. So we shall have a
reflection absolutely. It’s like even if we have all these in our arsenal but if we have also side
effects, as I said, with it. and of course mismanagement. And then secrecy is necessary, of
course, confidentiality. The system reacts to needs, cost reduction is sought. Preference is
given to a professional role rather than the system, so you go now toward the new rule.
Care is based on continuous healing relationships. These relationships are re-centered around
the client. And the quality of this relation is associated with the outcome of the care. And this is
very important in what we call quantum integrative medicine, because we understand at another
level how the client and healer and practitioner are bound together, are entangled together. We
will speak about this later on. Care is customized according to the patient needs. In this world of
integrative quantum medicine, every client is different and of course, even if we have protocols,
they are more individualized compared to the other side where it’s more like protocols are the
same for everybody. It’s kind of the same recipe and the protocols are most often determined by
the specialist. And here, if you don’t follow this protocol, you can be judged for misconduct or
there is lack of empathy there. Knowledge is shared and information flows freely. The client now
is empowered by the information.
We will see that this is very important. So in other words, the client is more empowered because
he can gather more information, there is more exchange with the practitioner and not only that,
the information through the digital technology that we will speak later on will flow more through
the client. So important because it can’t, it’s impossible to have empowerment of the client if
there is no feedback of information. And this is what is happening now with neuro-biofeedback
to digital technology. Decision making is based on evidence, safety is a system priority,
transparency is necessary.
So this kind of secretive aspect that conventional medicine has now is like an open book in the
new integrative medicine. Needs are anticipated, waste is continuously decreased. So we try to
go to a system where there’s more responsibility, where you empower the client. We also open
the possibility of healing to an infinite source now. Because previously, everything is limited to
what we call scientific, pharmaceuticals and surgery. Here with quantum physics we open the
access to other modalities of healing that are based on other ancient systems of healing of
science. So this has broadened the basket of possibilities of healing. Waste is continually
decreased. Cooperation among clinicians is a priority. So you can see now, let’s come back to
the, so you can already see how we are, where we are evolving. But to go there, of course
doctors need to be trained differently. You know, the scientific model that they are referring to,
or the philosophy of healing that they are relating with is creating an environment with
boundaries and repairs that are different from conventional medicine.
This is very important, and then from, this is why that class, it’s very important, it’s why we take
so much. Sometimes students ask me for protocol, all the time. But before you get to the
protocols, and protocols are very easy to gather, by the way, you can have a textbook, a
handbook of how to use a homeopathic or acupuncture protocol, but this is not what matters
now. It matters to reframe the global approach to healing on a different basis, and doing so, the
view of this different modality, understanding the whole model will flow by itself because we will
have like a grid. We will have like a frame with this footprint where we can progress with the
So again, one of the key points in this integrative medicine is to recenter the relationship with
the client. So let’s have a focus now on this next slide. Re-centering the healing relationship on
the client. So I can not insist too much, and again, this graph is taken from the Integrative
Medicine book, to refocus the healing strategy on the client patient relationship, the foundation
of medicine may be revised. So let’s look a little bit closely at this graphic now. At the center you
have the client, and then around you have all these dimensions.
Of course, we are not eliminating surgery and pharmaceuticals from, of course, other modalities
that are also implements of integrative medicine: nutrition, natural medicine, botanic herbs,
energy, mind-body connection, prevention. So we have a broader platform. And let me explain
that, this is very important because as… When I practiced medicine for years, and you have
sometimes people going to natural medicine and become the antagonist and then they preach
only for one choir. No, for me, it’s like you integrate the best of everything in a larger
understanding of reality.
So this is how it works. It’s like the one doesn’t cancel the other. It’s like now you have a grid, a
way to look at the client in terms of potentiality, in terms of bio-terrain. And of course the client
could be at a different stage when we see him. You can meet a terminal client and you can
meet someone that just is showing alarm symptoms, as we explained in another class. This is
like a process. You can have someone that is in the adaptation phase, someone that is
functional, where diagnostics are not already done but the client is not going well, and you can
have a fraction of people that have a diagnosis. So looking at the whole multidimensional
approach, then you will select what is the best to rebuild this individual, not just addressing the
symptoms. But at the same time, if this client is very advanced in the process, well, of course
you may have to use surgery or you may have to use pharmaceutics. So this is not eliminated
So when I was in my practice in Canada, originally of course I was a family doctor coming from
the school, and the therapies were 100% medical. But as I evolved as an integrative medicine
doctor, and dealing with all kinds of conditions, progressively I learned and integrated other
modalities of healing and at the end of the day 90% was holistic and 10% was medical. And
then I had probably pretty good results because I had 10,005 patients in this practice. So people
were coming from everywhere because they didn’t have an answer with their regular
conventional medicine, and I could add other modalities of healing.
Since the problem was not resolved. I could approach the terrain that I was, this is what I would
call the bio-terrain physical. And then when you look at this new energetic anatomy, everything
that could be more vital or more mental. And so I have all kinds of ways to restore health. Either
readjust the vital body or either give other, propose a new meeting that the people were going
to. So we will come at this later on. But it’s like now you have a bigger picture. You have a
different footprint that you will walk with your client. Not everything is necessarily on your
shoulders. This is an open relationship where you try to empower the client as much as
possible. And today we have even more tools to empower the client.
So one thing here is also important. This integrative medicine textbook referred to the mindful
clinician. I was very excited when I read this chapter. A mindful clinician is a clinician that
practices meditation. And mindful meditation is about this experience of being in the now, being
in that space of where you are centered and at peace. Most of the time this reflects when you
are in the alpha mode. So a mindful clinician would be better equipped to meet patients where
they are by recognizing their true needs and being aware and present in the moment. This is the
experience of mindfulness meditation. We can be more successful in helping others if we are
able to recognize our own beliefs and then do our best also.
This is text from this textbook: “To see the world through the lens of our patient from his life
perspective.” So I’ll go a little bit below. “In the state of Being, the observer becomes aware of
himself and does not dissociate himself from the person he’s observing. The result is Right
Thinking.” So I extend this now to the experience, a deeper experience of meditation that
reflects a state where you feel connected with everything and you are in entanglement with your
client. We will speak about this, being able to understand the relativity of everything,
nonjudgmental and compassionate. We have in the program a class where we teach
pro-consciousness meditation where we blend together all of these techniques that help to
experience altered states of consciousness like mantra and breathing. And here we also see the
use of crystals. But you know everybody uses a technique that is comfortable.
But let me comment on this now. This is really revolutionary now. So that we have in an
integrative textbook the expression that no, the doctor may do meditation. Can you believe that?
To be able to understand this kind of a new balance between the client and the practitioner? It’s
like if you are more present, you are more invested in this state of mindfulness. Of course you
will be more able to implement this. You come from a point of view or an experience where you
refresh your relation with the client. So this is for me very, it’s revolutionary. Because we start
from a point of view. This is what’s on one of the landmarks of medicine. When I went medicine I
was taught to be this distant objective doctor.
So don’t get involved in the subjectivity and the drama of this relation, doctor client. Be
observing your parameters in your lab and so on. And then just try to separate yourself. But with
quantum physics, now we realize that nothing of this is possible because you cannot dissociate
the observer from the object. And then as it goes, we realize that as when you walk in your
office, and before you see the client, your baggage, your own limitations that you have
accordingly to healing will be imposed on the client. And we have some research now to prove
that the first question and the first way we relate is already affecting the outcome of the
relationship. So there is a responsibility on the healer to know when you start to be aware of
that. And this is what is touched in this chapter now. It’s like oh now the doctor will be doing
mindfulness meditation to be in this mode that is more neutral, that when he is present that this
connection, this entanglement with the client is easier. So this is fascinating, and this will be also
another footprint if we look at this theoretical principle.
This is the state you will be in when you get in the healing relationship. Previously it was the
common dynamic out there to say hey, it’s nothing to do. You don’t have anything to do with the
outcome of their healing. The whole burden was put on the pharmaceutic recipes or the surgery,
no, the environment that is already created in this dynamic relationship where not all the
responsibility is on the healer. But this kind of balance is already important as a theoretical
principle in the new context of integrative medicine. And it’s exciting that it’s not just, and of
course I was aware of this for many years. But now there is a community of doctors thinking this
So relationship-centered care. Let’s look at this graphic now that comes from HeartMath where
you have these two individuals and we realize that everyone has an energy field, and again not
centered on the client, an understanding of the patient’s culture and beliefs to help facilitate the
healing process. This is what we said. Sees compassion as always helpful, even when other
therapies are not. Quantum physics reveals principles of nonlocality, entanglement. So I should
underline that because these are theoretical principles, the nonlocality.
In other words we are entangled with our client nonlocally, meaning that is beyond matter. Is
beyond the boundary of what you see, is unseen, and there the communications are instant.
Interconnectivity has changed the equation of their healing encounter. This is the wording we
use in the textbook: healing encounter. So yeah, it’s great technology in the last century. But in
some ways poor understanding of this, on the quality and the subtlety of the relation between
the healer and the healee.
Okay let’s before we go then now let’s come back to the studio. Okay so during this hour,
because Dr. Goswami will go deeper and deeper again, I will try to bridge this with how
important it is. And one of his contributions is to have said as a quantum physicist, what will be
the pearl? What will be the gift, what will be the signature of quantum physics that can be
implemented in the art of healing? And nonlocality is one of them. And the other one, entangled
hierarchy. He is also the first to be able to understand the entanglement, but more than that the
tangled hierarchy is that we are supposed to understand the connection, mind and body. How
mind and body could be a possibility of consciousness, how they intertwine together. Without
tangled hierarchy this was not possible. And framing consciousness as the ground of everything
where everything is a possibility of, and then how mind and body intertwines with tangled
hierarchy, this is another landmark. This is another footprint of this integrative medicine,
quantum integrative medicine. And then the discontinuous leap. This is you will see, and Dr.
Goswami will go very in detail how creativity can happen in healing and spontaneous healing
can happen. And how this leap of awareness through a process of creativity that Dr. Goswami
described in four steps.
So you will have a class exploring that. But you can understand that these four signatures are
fundamental. There is the signature of quantum physics, the gift of quantum physics probably in
the panorama, the theoretical principle that is probably the most important. Then we will see
after what we call the downward causational model. This is another contribution of Dr. Goswami.
So I don’t want to spend too long on this because Dr. Goswami will go into detail. But I was
already reading quantum physics 30 years ago and when as a teenager you had this. But the
question is yeah, if you read this and what? You read the different experiments of Einstein and
the curve of the space and the play of time and speed and so on. And you know it’s fascinating
but what exactly concretely with this will change our behavior, medical behavior, healing
Why will this make a difference? This is what we are in the time now that we start to understand
how to implement these, how the micro world behaves because quantum physics is about going
in the subatomic, to the healing process. Why, because biology before quantum physics didn’t
have any way to embody life in the biology. It’s like the radiation is smarter, it’s like you piece
everything together but where is the purpose? Where is the zest of life? And adding
consciousness to the equation is like now the embodiment of consciousness becoming the
breath that puts everything to life. So this is again another footprint of quantum physics.
But let’s see now, let’s lay out some others that as you go you will be more familiar. Again and
again through the curriculum. So the blueprint of human reality, linear to multidimensional, we
already had spoken about, but now we will be more in depth explaining the downward
causational model and acknowledgment of Holistic Anatomy. Dr. Goswami will explain to you
the five bodies of life: the physical, vital, mental, supramental, and bliss, how important it is for
us. This is what I translated and what I call Holistic Anatomy, because we need…the medical
doctor was studying the landmark of measures of the brain of medicine as human anatomy. But
leaving apart the 99% of reality which is nonlocal, which is vital energy, which is mental and so
on. This is what we have called Holistic Anatomy.
The Quantum Model for understanding the movement of Subtle Energy in relation with the
Morphogenetic Field, this is another footprint that is very important because it’s, to understand,
to have a key for the psychosomatic disease and chronic disease we need to have this weight
on understand how energy flows, how between these different layers. This is what I call event
formation which are the five bodies of life. The client is understood through Health Parameters
rather than disease. So we are now walking toward the medicine of positive health, of
integration, of growth where we are not just seeking for disease but what would be the
information to nurture, to increase vitality, to increase a healthier mental state and increase
higher quality of emotions and so on.
So this is what we were, what we look in this new environment of integrative medicine.
Assessment in terms of potentiality rather than fatality. These are so important, this footprint
now. You have to get familiar. They have to be imprinted on the new environment of healing,
and this is where we are heading. Nonlocality and quantum measurement, entanglement of the
healer-healee. We talked about it. The concept of disease is replaced by self-awareness and
actualization. This is positive health, we will comment on that. Quantum creativity is involved in
the process of reversing disease. So it’s another signature of creativity and healing that was not
possible with the reductionist model.
So how do we explain spontaneous healing? How we explain that some client was supposed to
die and some day out of the blue because they have a greater awareness they were healed. So
this is now creativity that is rolling embedded in the art of healing. Dr. Goswami will go very
deep in that. So this is very important as a practitioner, as a doctor, will you not be interested to
know the role, the principles that may make the spontaneous healing happen? Will you not be
interested in that? And this will be part of this conversation in the next class with Dr. Goswami.
So linear to multidimensional, if the first time you hear about that, maybe you have to wrap your
mind around this idea, so what is it about? We refer to the fact that in conventional medicine we
have an upward model, causation is upward. meaning that if you start to study pure medicine,
the first two years and a half or two years is what, studying chemistry and studying molecular
biology and atoms and elementary particles? And then as you go, first anatomy, the organs.
And then you will throw in the neuro-physiology with the brain, and then what? Here’s everything
you have to study, and now you start to understand how the mind works. Is it the byproduct of
the brain? Is it something that’s juice or something?
This is why Descartes just gave up and said you know, let’s take the mind to another class now.
Let’s separate this to understand how it works. But then how to connect both together? How to
understand this connection of mind and body? So there is no way with the reductionist model,
looking just at how matter is organized from the more atomic level and elementary particles. And
on a cellular ;eve; and organs and so on. You can’t understand what is immaterial, you know?
You cannot combine the macro and get an outcome of what is the mind itself.
So this is where with quantum physics, Dr. Goswami came along with this idea of the downward
causational model. This is where Dr. Goswami has expressed consciousness and gone through
everything. But consciousness is in quantum physics what they call a subtle field of information.
An infinite boundless possibility. And then from there you merge different possibilities and then
from there the brain is a possibility of this field, and cellular and molecules, and now instead of
going upward, you go downward. And at the same time you realize that doing so, you reverse
your whole environment that is not anymore the same now. It’s like you’re looking not just at the
matter but you start from the subtle and refining to what is physical. So you have now an entirely
new experience of what is reality where the consciousness becomes the ground of it. It’s like
years ago when Galileo came along and Copernicus was saying that the Earth is not the center
of the universe. So now you had to shift the whole thing around the sun, and then later on, of
course, we went to a galaxy and so on, but then just doing the first shift was very shocking for
So medicine has to go through the same shift where you look at the physical reality, at the
reductionist model, and you say here, this is the only thing. This is science, this is science
based, and here you process healing from all that scope here. Now you get in the space where
you turn everything around, where consciousness becomes the ground of everything. And then
in doing so, now you add an understanding of this subtle energy where the other system of
healing becomes also justified.
So you were the outsider partner in the field of healing. And if you can understand that it’s not
necessarily welcome, this is why holding to the old view has also some benefits. And this is why
everything takes so long before it shifts around. So we prefer it to hold on to something that is
inefficient, but other words many change this that also have financial benefits. So this is a very
big hurdle, but thankfully we don’t have the choice now. Why we don’t have the choice is
because we cannot afford this anymore.
Okay let’s go, we don’t want to go on this side. So this is what is a multidimensional model of
healing. Now we look at the individual not only physically, but with all these different bodies of
life that Dr. Goswami will explain what is the bliss, the supramental, the mental, and the vital. So
you can address these imbalances with these different levels with different approaches. With
the vital body, you have approaches like homeopathy and acupuncture and Ayurvedic medicine.
And with the mental you have approaches with hypnotherapy, meditation, and so on. And then
the supramental, we will explore this later on but this has to do with archetypes of how your
qualities and roles that organize function. And then the bliss is as I said what in another lecture
we were speaking about this mystic having this deep altered state of consciousness.
And today we realize that these very agreeable, pleasant neurotransmitters are also produced
in these altered states of consciousness of ecstasy and so on. We will have another class to
explore that. And especially Dispenza has gone pretty deep with brain mapping and having this,
studying this altered state consciousness when individuals were experiencing these gamma
waves. So we’ll speak about this another chapter. But from linear to multidimensional again,
addressing these different layers of information. So here we have the same graph here. And
then let’s make it the close up. This is what I was saying, for the physical, of course, we have
herbology, pharmacology, surgery, and so on. And the vital you have all kinds of energetic
products, PEMF here. We could also speak about yoga and Tai Chi and breathing and so on,
So you understand now that we absolutely expand our possibility of healing. Mental, NLP to
mention a few of them, Emotional Freedom Technique, hypnosis, meditation and so on.
Supramental, integration of higher quality. Bliss, of course, altered states of consciousness with
advanced meditation that I call pro-consciousness meditation. So in this new reality of
integrative medicine, consciousness matters. This is another theory called the footprint. So let’s
say a few words. I’d like to take a pause here at the hour and we’ll come back in a few minutes,
IMED600 – 1.2 Part 2 – (Dr. Paul Drouin)
– So another landmark or footprint of this integrative medicine is what we call the biofield or the
new holistic anatomy. Without this, it would be very difficult to lay out the whole picture because
you have to realize that quantum physics came along and started to say that what we see is
probably .001%. So, for decades now, during the last century and more than that, one of the
major pillars of medicine has been based on anatomy. So quantum physics is saying, yes,
anatomy is important. Of course, we need to know the mechanics of the organs, but this is just a
part of the reality. What would you think if you go to fix your car and the mechanic has just
studied one part, has totally ignored the electronics of the car today, and then they try to solve
the problem just from the mechanical point of view? So most of the problems, even the
diagnosis at the beginning, would be impossible.
So in other words, the same thing in medicine. How could we understand challenges like
psychosomatic disease, chronic disease, aging, and many others that have a connection to the
mind and body? So it seems impossible, and consequently, this is why we have most of the
time what we call a symptomatic approach. Pharmaceuticals, for most of it, addresses only the
symptoms and doesn’t necessarily recreate balance. Why? Because an important piece is
missing. We have no clue about what is vital energy, we have no clue what the mental is, we
have no clue how these compartments or these layers of information relate together. We don’t
have a full picture, a full map of human reality, and this is for me what’s so important that it’s
part of the program of the study of holistic anatomy that others call the biofield. You also have a
chapter in this integrative medicine book about the biofield. So there is a lot of interest, and as it
goes, research will pursue, too, at the moment, more information about this subtle anatomy.
There is absolutely an interesting field now that addresses the biophotons, and that is very
hopeful to solve the key of these different layers or bodies of information.
And then one that I start with, and I explain this in another class too, is Sheldrake with the
morphogenetic field. I will not be too long, but this is again, this is part of the footprint of this new
reality. You walk in now, as I said, the gift, the multidimensional model, and you get in the
biofield, and then most of the time you say, why, what is the ground for that? Sheldrake started
to look at cellular differentiation and then started to put together a field of information, nonlocal,
where these processes can go on. And then from there, Dr. Goswami built this body of life that
we call the vital, the mental and the supramental, and the same through the study of sacred
geometry applied to quantum physics. It’s another chapter that has given shape to this field
looking like a torus field where energy flows in and out, and quantum physics substantiates that.
It’s like we are a field of information, of possibility, of vibration, that pops in and out and at the
macro level is almost impossible to see. But at the micro level, this collapse of possibility is more
So here, in other words, this is a simplistic view. We understand the system doesn’t look like
this. This is layers of information. This is nonlocal information, but this is just to give for the
wording to this new reality. And what are these? So physical, we know about it. The vital, again,
let’s have a closer look here. Vital body, organs, feelings, the archetypes read this under the
supramental. There is an archetype, a body of law. The vital body addresses more the chakras,
the vital energy, everything that has to do with natural vital force or prana and chi and, of
course, the mental body has to do with thinking. And now having all these on a grid, we can
understand how energy flows together.
So you have the feeling and the vital; you have the realm of thought, the thinking, you have
where thoughts are giving meaning to these feelings or these emotions. So feelings with
meaning, this is an emotion. So you start to follow the flow here. So in other words, the physical,
this is what I explained, physical is sensing. Feelings come from the vital body, especially the
chakras which are the locus or expression of these feelings. And then as it flows in the mental,
then this is where meanings are processed.
So integrative medicine and consciousness and understanding of how thoughts, emotions,
feelings move to subtle morphogenetic fields and manifest illness will allow for a practice of a
real modern naturopathy, a modern medicine or integrative medicine. So let’s come back to the
studio. This will be explained also in detail with Dr. Goswami who explains the movement of the
vital body. And how having this awareness of this flow and then starting to understand where
disease is created, because diseases are created when the wrong meaning is associated with a
thought or feeling or an experience. So in the process of healing, the practitioner will be more
aware of this connection, and then through creativity, new meanings will be now associated with
experience and then new brain circuits.
So we will go more in detail on this, but this is very important, this kind of understanding,
because at the end of the day, psychosomatic and chronic diseases, most of them are
associated with these wrong associations that have to be reframed, since the individual is
caught most of the time in this drama because the play is going on inside this conditional reality
where they have learned this, where they have experienced this. This is based on past
experience, familiar experience, and then without going in this moment of creativity to reframe
the new understanding to what Dr. Goswami speaks about situational or fundamental creativity.
It’s impossible to add creativity to healing. So this is another footprint of medicine is the interplay
of this different body of life and the possibility to access creativity in this understanding.
So this will be all explained, and this is so important because in the reductionist model, you don’t
have the possibility to inject creativity and spontaneity because most of them, when this
happens, the doctor will say that was the wrong diagnostic, that was the wrong. Instead of being
able to have the signs and understand what’s happening, there’s just negation and denial. But
more and more this is happening now, the technician will say, I don’t know what you’re doing but
keep doing what you are doing, and so what? But it’s important to understand that.
We frame the individual not only inside their physical anatomy but also inside their subtle
anatomy that we call the biofield or holistic anatomy, and having an understanding of these
other realities which are the vital, the mental, the supramental, we try to create gaps between
these layers of information and doing so, we allow the possibility of creativity to happen and
manifest spontaneous healing. Spontaneous healing happens when the individual has bursts of
awareness, new leaps, and has the possibility of looking at the situation from the self point of
view. And Dr. Deepak Chopra has recommended this pretty well in healing, but Dr. Goswami
pushes a little bit more the understanding.
So another thing in this integrative medicine is how to evaluate the client. The integrative doctor
would be the one who can evaluate the client, not only in terms of disease but also be able to
find health parameters that can reharmonize the individual in terms of optimal health and full
potentiality. So just translating the journey with the healer and the healee in terms of full
potentiality and health, already we can expect a different outcome.
But this was not necessarily the approach 300 years ago when Bishop was giving
predominance to what we call the terrain, the bio-terrain. He was saying, what matters is not the
germs, which was the point of view of Pasteur, but is the bio-terrain. If you change the
environment, if you change the conditions, then you don’t necessarily have germs. But then, of
course, with antibody therapy, the whole reductionist model gives a reason to Pasteur. But still
in the background, we have this understanding that if you take care of the tree of the physical or
vital bio-terrain, nurturing the vitality, trying to increase body vitality through all of this yoga and
Tai chi and breathing, instead of just waiting to see what happens. then when the vitality
decreases and you get out of balance, you try to fix everything from the physical. So instead of
looking at the disease, you look at the whole picture where parameters will inform you how to
improve the physical through nutrition and exercise and how to improve the vital body through
some of the vital medicine or energy.
So, how to improve the mental, giving to life the proper associations and meanings and
improving the supramental by integrating what Confucius spoke about centuries ago regarding
higher qualities and higher virtues. Not necessarily virtue in terms of sin but in terms of higher
integration, a higher self. This is what Maslow spoke about, the actualization of the individual.
So this is what integrative medicine will do. It’s not just looking, when the client walks in the
office, and trying to find what’s wrong, but trying to find what I can tap into to bring that individual
to his maximum potential.
How the new healthcare will look in the next 20 years is beyond the reach of a linear model of
thinking. So these theoretical principles, these new landmarks, these new footprints, you can
understand now how important they are because if we don’t change this, it’s like Einstein was
saying, you just do the same thing the same way and you expect other results, you expect other
costs. It’s impossible. You have to absolutely reframe the approach differently in light of
So that is great to look at how energy flows around the body and will also be used to understand
how chakras, meridians, and different what we call the pillars of health, of the physical and the
five elements. So this grade will be used to in some way track these positive feelings.. But you
know, there is a new phenomenon now in integrative medicine. We speak about the fact that
yes, the relation between the healer and the healee should be refocused, but it could be just
words if there is no tool. And how we could completely empower the client is through
information. So now, the last decade or 20 years has been okay. Yes, I go online, I read about
the disease, this is okay, but this is more than what I am speaking.
Feedback, the basic definition of feedback is giving back information to the individual. It’s a
process of increasing awareness about how healthy you are. And we have a new phenomenon
happening now through the smartphone and digital technology. We have ways to monitor
hundreds of parameters about nutrition, heart variability, brain coherence, exercise, calorie
counter, you can even count the quality of your sleep, and so on. And these technologies are in
the hands of clients. So in other words, this is the most powerful tool to empower the client
because they will feed back when we speak about this positive health that if you are at your
optimum functioning. So if your variability is strained at optimum resonant frequency, now you
know that through abdominal breathing, you can reduce the risk factor of cardiovascular
You know that through meditation, if you have a higher brain coherence, you can probably
address more conditions than you can ever think about, cardiovascular and depression and
relationships and cancer and so on and on and on. So in other words, instead of sitting and
waiting while your vitality decreases and you go through the path of the disease, the path
through stress where vitality and the inner conflict and so on, now you are on another road with
other health markers where the practitioner will be trained and be able to feed information back
to you. So it’s not just words saying, hey, we will recenter the relationship on the client. We help
him prevent disease by getting more information, providing more tools that can shape the
lifestyle of the individual. because at the end of the day, it’s about the lifestyle, and lifestyle not
only about food but also about breathing, about exercise, about sleeping, about thinking. A total
holistic approach that is in the hands of the client in theme with the practitioner.
So this is what we call today the optimal healing environment, which is coherent with a
multidimensional model of healing. Recognizing the health parameters and physiological
parameters and smartphone technology to coach a client toward optimal health, now we are not
just theoretical here. We become practical. But before we become practical, we need to have
this global vision with all these markers. So integrative healthcare management, that will be
another subject of class but let’s have a focus here.
So in other words, we just spoke about an evaluation with acknowledgement of health
parameters and then also the integration of bio-neurofeedback to increase brain and heart
plasticity, just to mention a few, and then an understanding also of the new biology in quantum
physics. So I just said the word heres, new biology, but I should probably have developed
another slide on this because another footprint of this new integrative medicine is to look at
genes not as a determinant factor like fatalistic, but through the teaching of new biology with
Bruce Lipton, with the concept of epigenetics, the theory of epigenetics. New biology reveals
that you’re not determined by your genes, but you can create an environment, mental, physical,
lifestyle and so on, that activates some genes and then you can create and be the master of
your destiny. So you’re not anymore now in this alignment with the fatalistic diagnosis,
prognosis, and a biology that determines the way you will end your life. So again, this is totally
another repair and color in this environment of integrative medicine. So positive health, we add
and add even more. So integrative quantum medicine, the quantum doctor healthcare, the
transformation growth and integration of the higher qualities of the client.
So this is very important. This concept of health has evolved so much since I was in practice
from the World Health Organization saying, oh you’re healthy if you don’t have disease. For the
idea of being healthy, we have added the notion of energetically, if you have more energy, but
now we also add quantum medicine, integrative medicine, the idea of integration which is very
important. So positive health is associated with integration, associated with some familiar
concepts and with Maslow. In other words, of actualization, of growth of your personality, or
integration of higher quality or being a better person in some way.
So in other words, health is not just no pain. It’s being happier, more integrated in your
relationships, in your health, in your environment, and you being less ego-centered and more
centered on the higher Self. This is totally new. You didn’t see this, when I studied medicine with
internal medicine textbooks. We never spoke about it, but now, with this new vision of
integrative medicine, this is another very important piece or footprint or theoretical principle that
is associated with this model. This is what we just said, more ego mode to Self mode.
And then there is another last signature, the process of creativity that you will also be exposed
to in the next chapter in the lesson with Dr. Amit. But let’s have a look now at the slide. So this is
what I was saying. If you knew that spontaneous healing can be taught step-by-step, would you
be interested? So hold on. In the next lesson, Dr. Goswami will go very deep in this idea of
spontaneous healing and creativity. So to end the lesson, let’s review again the major
theoretical principles that will lay out the ground for this new environment of integrative
medicine, integrative quantum medicine, this new repair, what I call the footprint of this new
Replace the concept of disease with self-awareness and positive actualization. This is just
what we were saying, resulting in integrative healthcare management that emphasizes optimum
health instead of disease and fatality. This is absolutely typical, this is absolutely characteristic
of this new integrative medicine that I call pro-consciousness medicine. Why? Because we add
the embodiment of consciousness to this reductionist model that then becomes a
multidimensional model, supported by the development and the availability of user-friendly
digital technology. We didn’t see it coming, but that will change the equation, giving more
information to the client. This will democratize healthcare and open the door to personal
Again, this is what we mentioned:
Creativity in the process of healing by empowering the individual to take a greater
role in their healthcare.
Multidimensional view of healing – again, new biology with Bruce Lipton that you are
master of your genes and your destiny, you are master of your genetic destiny, not a
Assessment using digital health parameters, reflecting the movement of subtle
energy in relation with the unified field of biology.
Heart and brain plasticity
So you may have seen this slide before. But let’s come back to the studio. That was something
from my book, Creative Integrative Medicine. So in other words, I was saying that the tree of
medicine has to be transplanted in a new soil. And the roots have to be deepened and
intertwined, and then also bring back other modalities of healing. And this new land or ground in
which the tree is transplanted, it’s the ground of quantum physics and consciousness absolutely.
And doing so, the view of what’s come out will be taught in universities like it is now, and also in
natural medicine schools, and already we have students graduating and implementing this
modality of thinking and these theoretical principles in different fields. But I can see that also in
healthcare where the interpreter could be like a coach, could be like a doctor that specializes in
different modalities. It can be a master, it can be part of this interdisciplinary group implementing
this new, because this is not there now in healthcare.
I understand the doctor will not necessarily have the time to implement this, but he can work in a
team that implements this type of intervention. The need is there. They are looking for these
practitioners now because they know that something has to change, and you all will be this first
generation of integrative medicine pro-consciousness medicine doctors or masters or coaches
that will be revolutionizing healthcare.
So again, these new landmarks, you can find them in the textbook of integrative medicine. We
can review them, again, very briefly, and if we make a close up here, okay, so again, I repeat
this. We have mentioned before the emphasis on relationship-centered care, understanding of
the patient culture and beliefs to help facilitate healing, focused on the unique characteristics of
the individual based on the interaction of mind, body. But this, you see, in some way, integrative
quantum medicine makes this principle alive because it could be just reading this, it could be
just theoretical. And I hope you can see with that class how this can concretely be applied.
Regard the patient as an active partner. Again, you need tools to create that
atmosphere and here the digital synergy will be there and understood in this context.
Prevention, maintenance of health with attention to lifestyle. We will address this in
another class, but lifestyles are changing and you need this science of changing
behavior that we teach with Dr. Joe Dispenza to be able to be efficient in this art.
Encourage the provider to explore their own balance of health. So the grid that
we’re offering to integrative quantum medicine can allow that.
Require provider as educator, role model, and mentor in the patient. So we have
seen how important now the responsibility of the healer to come in a neutral mode, in the
now where you can interface with the client with a positive outcome.
Use natural, less invasive interventions before costly, invasive.
So yes, but still, the way conventional medicine defines and regulates these
interventions with an outdated model of science will not work. So we have to update the
model of science to quantum physics to be able to implement these new
Recognize that we are part of a larger ecosystem that requires more effort in
sustaining its health so we can continue. Again, having this new notion of environment,
the quantum environment of this body of life that I was speaking about also makes that
Use an evidence-based approach from multiple sources of information. So already,
with quantum physics, we have a lot of research and data with neuroscience, with brain
mapping and so on, that can substantiate this approach.
Search and remove barriers that may be blocking the body’s innate healing. Again,
with the grid that we are offering to integrative quantum medicine, with the five pillars,
the five elements, the chakra. We have a grid where we can read the bio-terrain that I
was speaking about.
Compassion as always helpful, even when other therapies are not. Again,
understanding that the entanglement between the healer and the healee. And Dr.
Goswami will speak about the differentiation between compassion and sympathy. You
don’t want to be trapped also in the negative aspect of identifying with the pain of the
Focus on the research and understanding of the process of health and healing. If
you don’t have a grid that refers to the signature of quantum physics, it is very difficult to
guide your research.
Accept that health and healing are unique to the individual and may differ for two
people with the same disease. Again, this is another brand of this medicine, that
medicine is individual. It’s not the same answer for everybody but how can you
Can you use a different protocol if you don’t have a grid of analysis with a multidimensional grid
that helps to individualize the approach for every client? It works collaboratively with the patient
and the team. So to make this happen, we need to train these new practitioners, these new
coaches, these new doctor coaches, the way I like to say that has this type of understanding to
change the equation of the interdisciplinary provider because the players now are totally in your
end of what we are speaking about.
The main thing, healing is always possible, even when curing is not. But there is the source of
the problem through the understanding of connection, mind and body. Yes, we can heal. Agree
that the job of the physician is to cure sometimes, heal often, support always. I don’t know if
Hippocrates said that. He spoke about the armless, no arms, use of natural means, nutrition is
important, but he was not living at the time where pharmaceutics were there and surgery and
other means of medical interventions. So that will be another chapter, but absolutely
Hippocrates can be implemented totally to his health with this new integrative quantum
So let’s come back to the studio in conclusion. So you understand now. We took a lot of time to
define the environment in which healing should happen, to define the new relationship, to define
the new anatomy, to shift from a medicine of disease to a medicine of optimum health and
creativity. These are the theoretical principles, these footprints that again and again you will be
informed, and this should be becoming for you a second nature so that when you get in
practice, you are at another level where spontaneous healing can happen.
There is this opening because I don’t think at this time conventional medicine is using this
knowledge best. It’s like you create an environment of optimal healing, creating an environment
of optimal healing needs this quantum physics understanding of that environment. If you don’t
have it, you just have a fraction of what’s going on.
So thank you for these few hours and then please take your time. Do the lesson with Dr.
Goswami. Listen to the lesson and also read the transcript and reflect with the questions and
essay that you will have to write and as it goes, you will deepen your understanding. Thank you
Video 01 – (Dr. Goswami)
Hi, this is Amit Goswami, and my topic today is Quantum Integrative Medicine, new avenues to
it. We start the discussion with the philosophy of currently what is called modern medicine. We
will call it allopathic medicine, oftentimes, although the term is no longer very popular with
modern medicine practitioners. But the reason for this differentiation is simple. There are
alternative forces of medicine, whether the mainstream of modern medicine practitioners like it
In this whole series, we’ll show that the philosophy of modern medicine is inadequate and
therefore modern medicine itself is inadequate in the allopathic form. So you must extend the
idea of modern medicine to include facets of the human being that we are ignoring, we are
neglecting, and this is, of course, the subject of this whole series and the course. So let’s start
with the worldview.
Modern medicine is based on a worldview that was essentially laid out by Sir Isaac Newton in
the 17th-18th century, and this worldview is about matter. Newton never thought that his
worldview will be adapted to biological living things. To his credit, Darwin, on whose work
modern biology is based, on which modern medicine is based, did not figure it either that his
work will be taken to be the basis of dogma to limit the human being so much as we do today
under scientific materialism.
What is this idea? It says everything is matter and matter moves, bending space and time.
Everything is because of material interactions, and it comes with the baggage that Newton knew
very well, and therefore, Newton already admitted that this is mechanics for non-living objects.
These limitations are: the object’s movements are determined movements, totally calculable.
You know some initial conditions, you know the forces, you can figure out where two objects will
be at every moment of time.
Determinism. Is human behavior determined? Of course, followers of scientific materialism
make it a huge debate. Do we have free will or do we not? Thousands, maybe millions of
articles have been written on it. But after all these years, they forget a simple fact: if human
beings did not have the will to live or will to heal, the medical profession would be going nuts
because their success in healing people would reduce enormously.
The healing intention has an obvious role to play in human healing. So by taking the idea of
determinism seriously and developing a science of determinism to determine what health
professionals should do or not do in helping their clients-patients to heal is downright ludicrous.
Doesn’t it sound like that? Determinism is not a healthy philosophy for human beings.
Determinism is not a practical philosophy for healing.
Take another one of the limitations of the Newtonian worldview. Look at it. Look at it. This
principle is absolutely false. Locality is the idea that all communications are carried through by
local signals. Signals move in space and time, always taking a little time to move a little space.
This is why they’re called local signals. Why is there a speed limit? Well, Einstein proved with
his relativity theory that the maximum speed allowed in space and time is the speed of light. A
huge speed, no doubt, 186,000 miles per second, 300,000 kilometers per second, it’s a huge,
huge speed, but still it’s a finite speed so communication cannot be instantaneous.
This is the point: local communication, taking always some time, moving always through space.
Good. But today, ever since the 1980s, we have experimental data, thousands of thousands of
them, that non-locality is a fact. There is indeed non-local communication, although there is still
controversy. There will always be controversy because people will always nitpick and make
problems with repeated data, replicated data, but don’t be misled by it. Non-locality is an
accepted fact. So in view of non-locality, you might say, “All right, this nonlocality is an accepted
fact, but it is only true for the submicroscopic world and plays no role in healing.
But you know what? Larry Dossey, a physician, wrote a book in 1982 where he suggested that
medicine better look at non-locality because physics, now quantum physics, has been
suggesting that non-locality is a fact of life, and then people followed-up Dossey’s idea in 1988.
A group of doctors did a healing experiment, distance healing. People prayed for healing of
some patients at a distance, hundreds of miles away, and the healing, in a double-blind
experiment, the patients did not know that they were being healed for. The doctors did know
that they were being healed for, yet the prayer actually healed only those people selectively who
were prayed for.
Other people on a big list, the control patients, they were not healed as an effect of the prayer.
Their healing rate was normal, whereas the healing rate for the people who were prayed for
went up drastically, without any question of significance, statistically speaking. Now, these
experiments have been repeated. True, there have been some ambiguous results in some of
the experiments, but most of the experiments, and this is what we decide in this domain of
experimentation, the majority of experiments do show statistically significant results, and
experiments which don’t show it, they are too, there is indeed a rationale for explaining the data.
There is never any negative, anything negative, it’s just ambiguous, those cases, those few
cases where distance healing has been shown not to occur.
So what does that mean? Non-locality and healing? You better believe it. It does matter. So
Newtonian physics in this respect is a little guide to medicine. If we throw out non-locality, we
are throwing out a very powerful way of affecting people’s health. If we throw out free will, again
we are throwing out a very powerful phenomenon to affect people’s health. So what should we
do then? Well, we should throw out the Newtonian worldview because it’s already thrown out in
the world of physics. In the world of physics, nobody believes Newtonian physics, although they
do agree that Newtonian physics holds in the world of most microscopic matter. For inanimate
objects, we completely agree that Newtonian physics is the final word as far as macro-material
objects are concerned.
For micro-material objects, Newtonian physics does not hold. This was discovered in 1925-26.
Mathematical questions were discovered. The effect was discovered actually even before then
that there are quantum effects that cannot be explained by Newtonian physics. This idea is as
old as the year 1900 when Max Planck discovered that energy is quantized, little bits of energy
make up a large amount of energy, and energy cannot be broken down in less than these little
bits, and these little bits are called the quanta of energy. Quanta is the plural of the word
quantum, which actually in Latin means quantity, nothing special, But in physics, it came to be
used to mean a discrete quantity. But the mystery of quantum physics is hardly in that
discreteness of energy.
The mystery of quantum physics comes when we recognize, like Schrodinger did, like
Heisenberg did, like DeBroglie did, that both matter and light, everything is objects of possibility.
In the submicroscopic world, objects are objects of possibility. So this is the physics that has
replaced Newtonian physics. What does it do for you? Notice that the first thing it does for us is
that it makes matter to be less like matter and more like ideas, possibilities, waves of possibility.
It’s an idea. From that idea comes the actual experience of matter.
So what happened with this recognition, what happened with this recognition of quantum
physics is that we realized right away, from the beginning, that quantum objects begin as waves
of potentiality which belong to another domain of reality. We call it the domain of potentiality
today, and the space-time domain happens after we measure these objects of potentiality and
make them into actual experiences. In the process, we play a role, we meaning conscious
observers, and therefore we know now that our choice, subtle as it may be, certainly we don’t
choose in our ordinary state of consciousness, but, nevertheless, it is clear that our choice plays
a role in making actuality the domain of space and time from the domain of potentiality.
So choice is suggested from quantum physics from the get-go. And guess what? These other
ideas that I talked about before, non-locality, you know what? That non-locality is the distinction
between this domain of potentiality and the domain of actuality because for a long time people
held out, giving the final verdict on the quantum worldview as compared to Newtonian, saying
that, “Well, still, the domain of potentiality is just an idea. It has not been verified.” What really
distinguishes between these two domains? If we say the domain of potentiality “is outside of
space and time,” it is very difficult to conceive of “anything outside of space and time.
So, what is it that distinguishes between, what is the distinction between these two domains?
That’s the question that physicists ask. It’s a very, very good question. Einstein, Podolsky, and
Rosen, three physicists, tried to give an answer, but they were antagonists. Their vision was
that, well, it doesn’t sit well with quantum physics because quantum physics predicts that the
domain of potentiality is a domain to which instant interconnection between two objects can take
place, mind you, instant interconnection between two objects may take place, and that seems to
be in violation with the theory of relativity. That’s why Einstein never liked it.
Einstein never accepted the idea of quantum non-locality because the theory of relativity was
very dear to him. But there is another way to understand this, and that way is also being already
proposed by people. What if the domain of potentiality is outside space and time? Then it
becomes a definition of the domain of potentiality without violating, without coming to contradict
the theory of relativity. People still refuse to simply recognize that the idea that Einstein,
Podolsky, and Rosen gave, that idea is the crucial idea of quantum physics, is part and parcel of
There is a way to distinguish the domain of potentiality and domain of actuality, space and time,
and that is what Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen discovered. It’s that instant communication,
non-local communication is possible through that domain. Whereas in the domain of space and
time, it’s always local communication. Locality holds. Here’s the catch: as I said, non-locality is
now an experimental fact, and therefore there is no way, there is no way of going back to the
Newtonian worldview after this coup.
Quantum physics has made it to the world. It’s verified by experimental data. There is a way to
discern between two domains of reality. No longer can scientists say that space-time is the only
reality and any talk of outside of space and time is mysticism or some other derogatory term like
super-nature. No, it’s not supernatural to talk about ourselves, space, and time. Quantum
physics is not supernatural. It is the most natural physics there is because this is the only
physics there is. It agrees with experimental data to such an extent that nobody in their right
mind will ever propose that there will be something supplanting quantum physics, ever.
So therefore the conclusion is that it is time to give up Newtonian physics as the basis for a
worldview. It’s time to give up the idea that space and time and matter moving in space and time
is reality. It is time to give up the idea that material interactions alone determine the behavior of
objects. But then I have already said that for material movement in the microscopic world
Newtonian physics is enough. But it turns out that even in the macro world, Newtonian physics
is not enough for living objects.
This is where biology comes in. So mind you, Newtonian physics, then, is inadequate for the
material world if you consider the micro and macro, both. But for the macro world, Newtonian
physics gets back some credibility because the quantum effects are muted a lot, to such an
extent that we can say that more or less all objects are Newtonian, more or less. But that idea
just does not hold for living objects. So let’s look at biology. Let’s look at that part of biology
which claims that it does.
Molecular biologists claim that life is chemistry. Of course, chemistry is physics. That has been
known for some time. So, molecular biologists are saying that biology ultimately can be
understood by virtue of the laws of physics. But are those laws of physics the Newtonian laws of
physics? Or are those laws of physics quantum laws of physics? It makes a huge difference. It
has to be quantum laws of physics, obviously. To me, it’s obvious because the basic objects
that are making up the biological being, they certainly are not macro objects.
The whole basis of reductionist science is the idea that elementary particles make up atoms,
make up molecules, make up the living cells. But elementary particles, atoms, molecules, these
are all quantum, and therefore when they make up living cells, doesn’t it make sense to make
sure that the argument still holds, that same argument we gave that macro objects, inanimate
objects obey approximately Newtonian laws, that same argument holds for living objects as
well? The truth is lacking. Nobody has proven that. Nobody has demonstrated that. There is no
experiment suggesting that living objects, living macro objects are Newtonian, obey Newtonian
physics, approximately, even approximately. In fact, the whole point is, as the simple statement
will show, which Niels Bohr knew, and therefore Niels Bohr first talked about. Well, maybe for
life we need a different approach. He had some ideas, I’ll share them later, a little bit later, but
let’s stick to this thing that we’re pointing out.
What is the difference between a living object, talking about a living object, and a bundle of
molecules? A bundle of molecules is a bundle of molecules, is a bundle of molecules when it is
an inanimate object. But a living object, fundamentally there’s a difference. A living object
becomes nonliving when it’s a dead object. For dead objects, guess what? It is a molecule. It is
a bundle of molecules, there’s no question. There’s nothing extra. It is a bundle of molecules.
But a living object, you have to come to terms with what is dead. A living object is fundamentally
different from a dead object. For dead objects, nobody objects. It’s a bundle of molecules.
But then what’s the difference? Why is a dead object different from the living object? Obvious,
otherwise why are you calling it dead? But simply by the fact that there is death, are we living
objects? We are saying that, look, there’s got to be something about life that is not being
explained here by assuming that they’re a bundle of molecules alone, that’s it, that’s all there is
to it. No, that cannot be all there is to it, otherwise, the phenomenon of death could not exist.
Some differences must be taking place. What is that difference? This is what the biologists are
Another way of looking at it is the origin of life. If life is indeed made of molecules, then we
should be able to demonstrate that yes it is so, yes it is so. Such a demonstration lacks or we
have not been able to demonstrate that we can start with simple molecules and get anywhere in
making even close to what we can call a living object. Yes, we have made some progress
initially. That is true, but then the projections that were made and the experiments that came
later, they all use what’s called bioengineering, taking little bits of pieces of life itself and then
making what seemed like a progress, but you are starting with living molecules already, and
then if you make progress, is that real progress? What produced that living molecule? In fact,
there’s a fundamental difficulty in doing all this that has been known since the 1950s as soon as
the structure of DNA was discovered.
The living cell has two very important macromolecules. One is the living cell, one is the protein
and the other is the DNA. Proteins carry out the function of the cell. DNA is the hereditary
molecule. That’s good, but here is the catch: DNA has the genetic code. Genes are part of the
DNA and these genes are the code for building proteins. Proteins are such complex molecules
that without this code, we couldn’t possibly construct proteins, so nature has this code, and
proteins are made then by DNA. The code is written on the DNA.
So far, so good. But then what is the origin of life? So we make the DNA through simple adding
up molecules and making it more complex,more complex, and then there is DNA and then it will
make protein? No. It doesn’t work that way. Why? Because it takes proteins to make DNA. We
are stuck Without protein, you cannot make DNA. Without DNA, you cannot make protein. You
see why they will never be able to make a living object in the laboratory because of this
impossibility, circularity in making a macro living object. Circularity kills it, kills the idea. You
cannot do it without having infinite time to do it.
So then where is molecular biology? The basic assumption of molecular biology that biology is
chemistry is physics is wrong, either way of looking at it. Reduction falls apart when you realize
that there is a difference between life and death. Synthesis, that idea falls apart because how
would the original synthesis come about? So it is time to acknowledge that either way we
approach it, we can approach it from the medicine side and point out that look there are roles
that our free will, choice plays in healing that we cannot ignore. We are throwing a large part of
healing that way. There is a role that non-locality plays in our healing. If we accept Newtonian
worldview, we are throwing away a large part of healing once again. If we take, look from the
other way, you can only find that the molecular-biological way of equating biology with physics is
just bound to fail because of the difficulty of ever constructing a way of synthesizing life in the
laboratory or ever distinguishing between what does death mean.
If a living cell and the dead cell has the same chemical composition, same elementary particles,
atoms, molecules, then why should they be any different? Now, there are ideas. The scientists
are never short of ideas, their ideas like emergence and stuff that complicates the issue that
often is used in beautiful arguments of sophistry, but there is no demonstration.
On the other hand, the science that I will take you through, the science that we have built now
which is giving us an integrative medicine, this science is based on solid arguments, theory and
experimental data verifying every bit of these arguments. So in other words, we have only what
may be called a science based on future projection, a promissory science. Karl Popper, the
great philosopher, used to call scientific materialism promissory materialism, things that it
cannot solve with promises for the future. It will be solved someday, but that day never comes.
So either we live with a promissory incomplete science or we live with a concrete science,
agreed that it too has to develop a lot more than it is today and we are proud to say that, it
opens up new research and that’s good.
So which one is the one that will help us more? Science from the beginning had a spirit that it
should be helpful to people. If it doesn’t help, what good is it? Ideology is no good. Right now,
the materialist medicine, which is tantamount to machine medicine, when they’re saying,
“Material medicine, what do we mean?” “We are saying matter behaves like machines. “They
are deterministic. “They are locally bound. “What does it mean? “It means only one thing, that
we are material. “That’s all we are. “There is no specialness to the human being,” and what I’m
saying is that already we know how to define the humanness of human beings and we can take
advantage of this specialness, we know what to do with this specialness and then can use it for
our healing. This is the new science. This is the new medicine.
So which way to go? I don’t think it requires much debate. Obviously we would go with human
science. Obviously we go to human medicine. So in this course, you are going to get the details
of a human medicine. First of all, what distinguishes human mind, human beings, human
consciousness? Well consciousness is the word that is going to be big in our development. It’s
the distinguishing factor. Consciousness can be embodied in living beings. This is the new
science, the basis of new science. Consciousness is the ground of being and it can be
embodied and that embodiment is produced when we have a living being.
Consciousness embodied is life, and then life develops, evolves as Darwin said, but not quite
following Darwinism. It’s too limited. It’s a materialist theory of evolution, and therefore leaves
out the role consciousness must play in evolution, therefore only part of the story. We need to
correct that story. When we do, we find that consciousness plays a huge role and it becomes
clear what consciousness has done to produce this huge evolution from a single cell, to multiple
cells, to invertebrate, to vertebrate, to mammals, to primates, to the human being in order to
produce who we are and in that process producing a human being whose health we are
concerned with in the healing profession, in medicine.
You have to take the human aspects that evolved since that single cell which already is
fundamentally different because in a single cell consciousness is embodied. In the nonmaterial,
there is no embodiment of consciousness that is possible. But in the human being, especially,
the embodiment is much much more sophisticated than that that happens in a single living cell.
In fact, that that can happen for human beings is so special that human beings are even very
different than the closest, closest ancestor, the primates, quite different.
So therefore to limit human medicine to basically mechanical medicine is a huge mistake. To
limit human medicine to even animal medicine would be a mistake because human beings can
process something that animals cannot process, namely, mental. The mental dimension is much
much more sophisticated in the human being than even the primates, although the primates can
from all of the versions that we have done can do a little bit of the mental processing.
This is the point: consciousness, mind, and then closer analysis will show that what biologists
have rejected, what was used to call life, vital energy, then we have another dimension which is
beyond the mind, beyond the vital which we call supramental today, which is based on our
intuitive experiences, and then this whole idea of consciousness as a whole, all these ideas will
enter into the totality of our healing science, and has to, otherwise, we’ll never heal.
So why is Newtonian physics and Darwinian biology and molecular biology insufficient ways for
the healing science, insufficient philosophies for the healing science? Also because for the
wholeness healing, wholeness and healing come from the same etymological word, must never
forget that. For wholeness, we not only need to consider the physical, but need to consider
these nonphysical aspects which scientific materialism throws out simply because it cannot deal
with them, it cannot entertain them. Of course there is sophistry. There’s arguments against
considering such nonphysical dimensions of reality, but guess what? All those arguments have
now fallen apart because of this new phenomenon that quantum physics gives us, non-locality,
and this phenomenon invites consciousness into the affairs of the nonliving and that’s how living
As I said, living is distinguished by the embodiment of consciousness. If consciousness is not
embodied, nonliving, we can deal with it purely by materialist science. There’s no problem. But
as soon as consciousness is embodied, the question changes fundamentally. The old physics,
the old biology just do not apply anymore. Those two just are not adequate to apply a healing
science for the complete human being. This is the point and this is what we need to understand.
This is why we need a new avenue, a new approach, and that approach is Quantum Integrative
Medicine. Thank you.
Video 02 – (Dr. Goswami)
Let’s talk more about the embodiment of consciousness. The point that I made already is that
the distinction of life and death is not within the purview of molecular biology, just cannot be
done within scientific materialism. What we can do with the quantum worldview is to bring
consciousness into the affair and recognize that it is the embodiment of consciousness that
distinguishes between life and death. Once we have done that, then it is easy to see the
direction of the progress that has to be made. And it also easy to see that in Newtonian physics,
this is impossible to do because if you have Newtonian physics, as scientists pointed out a long
time ago in a paper published in 1995, you don’t need to read the paper, I’ll just give you the
summary, which is that within classical physics, Newtonian physics, the only way consciousness
can be put in is dualism, which nobody likes.
Scientific materialism arose from trying to demolish the dualist philosophy that was prevalent
before. So what’s the point of carrying on the idea that Newtonian physics is enough to deal with
biology, to deal with issues of life and death, to deal with human health and healing? It’s just not
possible to introduce consciousness in any other than dualistic way. This is the fundamental
problem for scientific materialism, for Newtonian physics, for molecular biology. And there is
more. There is more. Conscious experiences.
What happens from the amoeba, simple one cell, to the experiences of consciousness, the
experiential self, living objects, living beings as we progress through the ladder of evolution?
These experiences are limited to just sensing for the one-celled creature. But look at what
happens as one cell goes to multiple cells to invertebrate to vertebrate to mammalian with the
brain that can handle emotions, and then eventually the human brain which can handle mind,
thinking in the abstract sense. Even in the higher sense of intuitive mind.
So all these experiences have to come in. And how do we handle them with just matter to guide
us? In the future, we’ll have more discussions of this, but it is a fact that scientists have come
along and shown quite conclusively that, in truth, the idea that matter can process mind, even
that idea cannot be justified. So how is ever a material philosophy based on Newtonian physics,
how is that ever going to handle the various aspects of consciousness which evolves, if you put
it that way? In the Darwinian kind of theory, all this evolves.
In the quantum-based theory, we’ll get it right. The embodiment evolves, not the evolution of
consciousness. The materialists look at consciousness as an emergent phenomenon of matter
and therefore get misled that it’s the various aspects of consciousness that somehow evolves
through Darwinism. Of course, that’s a big question whether it could, whether it even makes
sense to demand of Darwinism such complexity of the biological affairs.
But coming back to the question of can matter even process mind? Can matter even process
intuition or feeling? This is the question that will thwart the scientific materialists the most, once
one looks seriously at what happens with creatures as we evolve from the single-cell creature to
the human being. With the new science, all this is solved because we are looking at
consciousness-based science. Quantum physics does it for us. Once we do that, once we
introduce consciousness, it becomes easy. Because then you can see that it’s the embodiment
of consciousness, and as the embodiment becomes more and more sophisticated, we develop
more and more of conscious processes for the being to experience. Okay, see the problem?
Let’s go into the second concern, once you put consciousness into the equation of all this.
Newtonian physics has a fundamental prejudice called objectivity. Independent, separate
objects make up reality. This objectivity seems like a reasonable idea for developing a science.
Science should be objective in the sense of the data. Otherwise, how the data should be
credible if people have different opinions about the data. Subjective data certainly makes it easy
to do science, which is based on both theory and data. Good. But objectivity, and if you demand
that the objects are Newtonian objects, it’s a huge problem to maintain how reality can be
explained. Because reality is that when we have an experience, it has two poles. That’s the
Reality is that we have an experience, not who experiences the objects of experience. This is
reality. Human beings certainly do that. Nobody can doubt that I am looking at a camera, and
nobody can doubt that you are looking at a picture of me talking on your screen. There is an
experiencer. You are experiencing me. I am talking to the camera. I am experiencing talking to
the camera. No way that one can eliminate the subjective aspect of consciousness, because I
have an individual flavor of how I look at a camera, how I behave. And similarly, you have a
specific quality of consciousness. That’s the traditional name that philosophers have given to
this experience of subjectivity.
You have a specific quality of consciousness through which you look at the screen. That specific
feel of consciousness. How do you get that? That’s subjectivity. Subject has to be explained.
How do you get that starting with Newtonian objects? Think about it. Newtonian objects have
that reductionist model behind them, the elementary particles making atoms, making molecules,
making cells all the way to the brain, if you are talking about human beings. They’re all objects.
If you make a big conglomerate with objects, you get objects. There’s no other way to think
about it. There is no way that a subject will emerge from a conglomerate of objects. No way.
So this is a huge problem for maintaining objectivity, which is a fundamental demand of
Newtonian physics into human affairs, the science of the human. You can maintain that there is
no human, there is only a machine, but it doesn’t, as you have been arguing all through this
hour, that it doesn’t wash. It leaves so many things unexplained. Right? So how to get the
subject, which has been called the hard problem of neurophysiology, how to explain the subject.
It’s a huge problem if you try to do it all with Newtonian and molecular biology worldview. There
is no question that I self-suggest, that even a single living cell had the ability to distinguish
between itself and the e…
