The Biophysics Basis for Acupuncture and Health

The Biophysics Basis for Acupuncture and Health

Dr. Lo brings together massive scientific evidence from Japan, US, China, UK, Sweden and Germany about meridians and acupuncture. He puts it together with quantum field theory to present a unified molecular biological and quantum physical view. Lo proposes that meridians are made of a polarized media, which is likely to be water clusters. When they fall out of alignment, qi is blocked, and the body is in pain or becomes sick. Acupuncture, moxibustion and qigong can help align these water clusters. And when they do, qi flows and the body heals.
