A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine
Energy Healing and Spiritual Transformation
by Richard Gerber, M.D.
"In the world of vibrational medicine, illness is thought to be caused by not only germs,
chemical toxins, and physical trauma but also by chronic dysfunctional emotional-energy
patterns and unhealthy ways of relating to ourselves and to other people" writes physician,
metaphysician, scientist and seeker Richard Gerber.
In his insightful and all-new book, A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine , Dr.
Gerber succinctly and effectively explains to the lay person various ways in which humans
are really more than merely biomachines. He describes the integral relationship between
our minds and bodies and how, when the level of balance of our emotional-energy is
disturbed, physical changes and weaknesses that contribute to disease, can occur.
This companion book to Vibrational Medicine, Third Edition, speaks to you and I in
language we can understand. We learn what vibrational medicine is and how it is
becoming recognized by modern medical doctors as a path to health and wellness.
A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine is complete...this reviewer found
discussions about chakras, homeopathy, acupuncture, flower essence and color and light
healing, magnetobiology, radionic and hands-on techniques. Further, this information is
presented by a passionate physician who is also a truth-seeker unbridled by scientific
ethnocentrism.
A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine is a bright light that illuminates the path to
a new (though sometimes ancient) frontier of medicine. Dr. Gerber offers scientific
evidence from case studies that prove the efficacy of combining modern medicine with
alternative medical treatments. In this reviewer's opinion, this book is a valuable tool to
understanding a better and cutting edge means to achieve better health and wellness!

There are books which pretend to be a reference point, and there are those which not only are, but also exceed readers' expectations. These are some of those! Read them twice and heal the universe. A library worth having for every healer.

Richard Gerber continues to update this classic, which is outstanding, comprehensive and comprehensible.

If you are looking for an introduction to the many different novel forms of treatment which have emerging over the last century, this is one of the best places to start. He has also observed some of the profound similarities between healing and spiritual growth. Many of us have seen individuals undergo sudden and sometimes unexpected spiritual awakenings when they have been working wioth some of these techniques.

Highly recommended!

Richard Gerber is both a physican and metaphysician, as well as a best-selling author. Vibrational Medicine, Third Edition combines the best of both worlds and connects them as a bridge spans two islands...the physical self and the spiritual self.
Dr. Gerber writes, "Medicine is at the threshold of discovering a hidden world of unseen energies that will help to diagnose and heal illness as well as allow researchers to gain new insights into the hidden potentials of consciousness". This exploration of energy (vibration) as it relates to modern medicine...the Newtonian viewpoint and the Einsteinian viewpoint, combined with Dr. Gerber's keen writing abilities, offer the reader a deeply esoteric look at the future of medicine.
Further, Vibrational Medicine, Third Edition discusses the efficacy of such ancient treatments as acupuncture, radionics, healing with crystals, Bach flower remedies, chakras, meditation and psychic healing. We learn about the relationship between higher vibrational energies and physical matter to understand the patterns governing the flow of the life-force through the physical body.
The marriage of homeopathy and modern medicine signals the verge of a major paradigm shift in the sciences. "Ideally", writes Dr. Gerber, "each therapeutic option offered by the different schools of thought might be used to complement and augment the effectiveness of the others, as opposed to relying on any single technique. This integrated model is one which may eventually be extended towards treating all forms of disease in a multidisciplinary fashion".
Vibrational Medicine, Third Edition, is a look at the future as it will affect our lives individually as well as globally. Richard Gerber, M.D. has given us an eye-opener that redefines diagnostics and healing...and offers solid evidence of the progression of alternative medicine!

I have enjoyed reading this book. There is a lot of useful information on a variety of remedies that are not given serious consideration by the average person. Homeopathy is used much more in countries like England than it is here in the U.S. Are you to believe the skeptic who says there is nothing to these remedies? Not if you take some time to thoroughly research a subject, than make an informed decision. Don't allow others to do your thinking for you, they don't always have your best interests in mind.

I was pleased to find that Gerber had quite a bit of information about magnet therapy in this book. Unlike many books, he did not neglect to mention the true pioneers of biomagnetics, Albert Roy Davis and Walter C. Rawls. Davis discovered, in 1936, that magnetism consists of two separate and distinct energies, each having a different effect. Too often, he and Rawls aren't given the credit they deserve. When they published their books in the 70's, doctors and scientists from around the world visited their lab. There is no better source for biomagnets, or information about the many other ways we can use magnetic energy, such as magnetizing seeds and water for better plant growth, and cleaning up toxic waste using Biomagnetic Bioremediation.

This book has a substantial amount of information on Flower Essences, Acupuncture, and other under used therapies. It's one book you shouldn't be without.

A practical, succinct description of tomorrow's medicine

At the dawn of the twenty-first century, the old paradigms underlying the sciences are beginning to fall apart. This is nowhere so clearly seen as in medicine and in the physical sciences. Physicists seeming to be less resistant to innovation than physicians, quantum theory has effectively replaced the mechanistic theories of Newton and even the relativistic teachings of Einstein as orthodoxy.

Vibrational healing now occupies a space in relation to conventional biomedicine precisely analogous to that held by what was called the 'New Physics' in the 1940's and 50's.

Dr. Gerber informs us that vibrational medicine philosophically rests on the recognition that the human being is more than a physical body, but also incorporates a "body" of life energy, a "body" of sensitivity and feelings, and a spiritual essence or Self. Vibrational modalities interact with these subtle bodies of the human being, evoking specific qualities in response. We can say that they work in a similar way to inspirational music or art, which carry meaning through the vehicle of sound or light, while the modalities of vibrational medicine work through the medium of the patterns of energy that suffuse, enfold and interpenetrate our physical selves.

Modern physics has known for decades that matter and consciousness are intertwined so finely as to seem to present the two as but aspects of a single phenomenon. Medical science nonetheless continues to utilize a nineteenth century model of the human being as a mechanism, but another machine (albeit an especially complicated one) in a world of machines. Given present trends, we can reasonably expect that in the coming century medical science will develop ways of assessing the impact of consciousness on health, and we will learn more about ourselves and the ways in which vibrational healing modalities work.

Dr. Richard Gerber's work is destined to become a classic: a practical, succinct description of tomorrow's medicine - so clearly written that one might read it and without further ado utilize some of the more straightforward therapeutic modalities described therein which run the gamut from homeopathy to color therapy, from radiesthesia to Reiki.

I unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Richard Gerber's valuable and delightfully-written volume to every healer, professional or lay, with an interest in alternative or complementary medicine or energetic healing.

This book is so intense. It gets into information that some people aren't ready for. One of the concepts was: everything has an energy force, for instance, if you want love in your life, put rubies in a pitcher of filtered water in the early AM sun. Drink that water with infused ruby energy. The ruby energy will fill your prana, chi or vital force. It is not hocus-pocus. The author gets into scientific fact of how and why this happens. It actually lightened my mood. The placebo affect? Perhaps. There is so much information covered in this book. It takes time to absorb the information. Then read some more. But it is fascinating. I think I'll take mine out and read it again.

I haven't completed the book yet, but there is so much information, and I love the way it is connected. I am just breaking into energy healing and love the way that this book combines so many genres. I soon hope to share what I've learned with those who are suffering and help them feel better.

I have owned this book for many years and refer back to it often. When Dr. Gerber calls this a complete guide, he's not kidding! It covers everything from homeopathy to acupuncture, flower essences to healing with color. And there is an excellent section on various types of hands-on healing. It is not written in a mystical manner, but backs up its claims by including experiments that have been done on each subject. I don't know that non-believers will be convinced, but I'm not sure that any book has that capability. For those with an open mind, I highly recommend delving into this book a topic at a time...chances are you'll end up reading the entire thing, and being fascinated as I was.
