Embracing medical intuition as a complimentary holistic care approach

Knowing the pain we experience brings relief to us after being diagnosed by doctors. But what about those whose health issues do not fit a specific category? Or lack comprehensive understanding?

People often turn to alternative options when they feel dissatisfied with conventional treatments. It is when medical intuition explains that their pain has a cause—and it might be something spiritual.

From EEGs to spiritual assessment

Our bodies naturally emit an energy field, mainly through our nervous system sending signals to the brain. A test commonly referred to as electroencephalogram (EEG) is able to measure these electrical charges, suggesting that reading energy fields is close to medical diagnostics.

Medical intuitive, however, claims to sense and interpret these signals coming from another person as a part of their spiritual assessment, allowing them to find the proper holistic care or approach to resolve the problem.

Medical intuition can vary in its definition among different practitioners. Yet, it has a challenging concept to understand, such as energy fields, clairvoyance or other extrasensory abilities. They use “meta-senses” or extrasensory perceptions, which go beyond our traditional five senses.

Professional medical intuitive in the U.S. relies on certain meta-senses such as:

  1. Clairvoyance: This is the ability to see information without relying on physical eyesight. It is to perform remote viewing on clients located in different parts of the world.
  2. Claircognizance: It allows medical intuitive to know information without prior knowledge. It is sometimes referred to as telepathy.
  3. Clairsentience: This meta-sense is to feel other people’s emotional or physical sensations.

The practice represents a unique approach to evaluation, setting it apart from traditional methods. It involves analyzing a client’s energy field to identify imbalances and uncover their root causes. 

Yet, medical intuitive does a different type of assessment compared to doctors. They examine a person’s energy field to find any imbalances and their underlying reasons. 

However, their role usually ends there. If the patient wants to pursue further medical actions, they should consult a doctor.

A complement, not an alternative

There is often confusion between the terms “complementary” and “alternative” medicine. The latter is a replacement for mainstream biomedicine, providing alternative approaches to healthcare. The former, on the other hand, are used alongside conventional medical treatments, working harmoniously with the recommendations of healthcare professionals.

According to Medical Intuitive Reader Patrice Krysztofiak, medical intuition forms a spiritual consultation as the guidance provided is often based on intuitive and spiritual insights. It is worth noting that the term — and practice — are generally more accepted in the U.S., whereas in Europe, it still carries some degree of taboo or skepticism.

At present, there are alternative names for people who possess similar abilities, which can create some confusion regarding their practices. Terms such as “medical empath” or “psychic medical diagnosis” may be encountered to describe these individuals and their work.

Identifying potential energy blockages is a common practice among medical intuitive, often involving the reading of one’s aura. Yet, there is still a lingering stigma associated with medical intuitive readings, which will likely persist for the foreseeable future.

In the field of biomedicine, there is often a strong emphasis on categorizing and measuring specific conditions. However, it is paramount also to recognize and validate the suffering experienced by people on both medical and spiritual levels, empowering them to embark on their personal paths toward healing.
