How David beat Goliath: An overview of Living Systems Medicine
To provide an overview of Living Systems Medicine, let us first consider its essence. The essence of the Living Systems Medicine breakthrough lies in the notion of nonlinearity.
Consider, for a moment, the potent implications of that word. Science takes a linear approach. The nonlinear path, on the other hand, moves beyond that into new territory, applying methods better suited to solving problems in living systems.
In the face of an overwhelming problem, this is the amazing power of nonlinearity: how an apparently small input can lead to a huge effect.
The even more amazing thing is that all living systems – including those with diseases – can be helped using the same strategic principle, for the simple reason that they intelligently self-manage. Living Systems Medicine makes use of this phenomenon to improve health.
To summarise a vast, complex subject briefly: you will be familiar with the story of David and Goliath, and how a small shepherd boy dressed in rags, with no armour or fancy weapons, defeated the strong, heavily armoured, weapon-bearing giant Goliath.
Improved clinical outcomes in even the severest health situations
Just imagine, then, how this one, powerful principle of nonlinearity may therefore be capable of helping the whole system to better health regardless of how severe the health situation is, given the right conditions.
And this is, indeed, what we have found in Living Systems Medicine – which is why we have acquired a reputation for focusing on the whole-system, general wellness treatment even of patients who are in very severe health situations in which both the conventional doctors and other alternative practitioners have already thrown up their hands due to having nothing more to offer.
There is, of course, no promise or guarantee, because every case is individual. These are simply our general observations based on many years of clinical experience using the nonlinear tools of Living Systems Medicine.
What is LSM Resonance Testing and why all the excitement?
Continuing our overview of Living Systems Medicine, let us look next at a key testing procedure performed in LSM consultations: LSM Resonance Testing.
In addition to matter and energy, there is a third domain of physics which has achieved recognition in modern science – the domain of “information fields”.
This is by far the most powerful domain of influence in human health – because it allows us to use a new approach that we call “nonlineopathy”: that is, the application of nonlinear tools, just like David defeating Goliath with a little rock.
Because the human body is an intelligent, self-managing system, information flows are the primary means of internal communication, healing and organization in the human body. This opens a new door for healthcare inputs.
This process of intelligent self-management operates internally through what we call The 5 Key Organ Systems, which is why these form our focus in Living Systems Medicine.
What exactly is done in LSM Resonance Testing?
LSM Resonance Testing works due to the “resonance principle” – which is in essence a method of evaluating the body at the level of information fields. Using a series of test vials and an objective, non-force muscle test at the ankles, we assess the information fields of The 5 Key Organ Systems and any other areas of priority.
And this resonance principle works not only in testing – it is also an effective method of treatment in the domain of information fields, which we call LSM Resonance Remedies.
LSM Nutritional Therapy and Herbs are other core components of LSM, in which nutritional supplements and/or herbs are chosen based on the same process of prioritizing The 5 Key Organ Systems.
Many ideas and terms mentioned above will be new to most readers, but don’t worry because you will find plenty more information and background science about them throughout this website.
Heavy metal toxicity and other pernicious factors addressed in Living Systems Medicine
No overview of Living Systems Medicine would be complete without a discussion of heavy metal detox and other “pernicious factors” that undermine health. This is because we take a “root cause” approach to health.
Let us pause to consider what that means. In Living Systems Medicine we variously refer to key phrases such as “root causes of illness”, “nonlinear entry points”, “leverage points” and “key obstacles”. These are all different ways of assessing a living system in such a way as to distinguish between primary and secondary factors. Applying nonlinearity to all the pernicious factors that affect our health leads us to prioritize. This is all part of the “secret sauce” that makes Living Systems Medicine so effective.
Resonances of common primary factors, or nonlinear entry points, which often take up our focus in Living Systems Medicine are numerous. A few quick examples include:
- Information deficits in The 5 Key Organ Systems
- Heavy metal or radioactive toxicity
- Infections of many types
- Pesticide residues
- Lack of sunlight
- Lack of nutrients such as vitamin D, magnesium, iodine or zinc
- Impaired sleeping area
- Loss of a sense of meaning in life, or in a particular area of life
- Lack of healthy fats for the brain
- Electromagnetic radiation
- Epigenetic impairments
- . . . and many others
Among these, Living Systems Medicine has especially acquired a reputation for being the “go-to” system when it comes to heavy metal toxicity – thanks to its uniquely powerful approach to detox by focusing on The 5 Key Organ Systems. However, Living Systems Medicine equally excels in relation to a wide range of other factors such as those listed above – and, more importantly, at prioritizing from among them.
Living Systems Medicine is the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ approach to clinical practice, centering around health-related detective work – but with systems science tools to guide us.
Witnessing a grand shift in perspective
We are absolutely serious when we say that this is simultaneously the greatest scientific and social breakthrough in over four centuries. Let us take a moment to consider the objective reasons for why we make this observation.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, European civilization underwent a radical shift known as the Copernican Revolution. It all began when a Pole named Copernicus proposed that the Earth wasn’t the centre of the universe after all – and that the Sun didn’t revolve around the Earth – claiming that the reverse was true. Over the next two and a half centuries, following this shift in perspective, the birth of modern science took place.
In parallel to this, a social revolution also took place, which some have referred to as humanism. This too was a radical shift in perspective – towards valuing the individual human life, with the spread of human values including the notion of individual liberation and development. This was allied to the scientific Enlightenment, because through the birth of both science on the one hand, and humanism on the other, the emphasis was on the power of the individual to explore, verify and grow. This was in contrast to previous millennia in which the customary approach was instead to look to a higher authority for direction.
There have been many great scientific and social breakthroughs since that time, yet we have not approached another radical shift in perspective as dramatic and all-encompassing as that one – until now.
Once again, an idea is infiltrating our civilization. It may even move us beyond science – through an evolution of methods that is offering humanity something even more effective and powerful for problem solving in living systems.
We are once again at a crossroads of history, as people once were in the days of Copernicus and, later, throughout the troubled birth of humanism and the scientific Enlightenment. This time, the idea is not about Earth’s place in the universe, or its position relative to the Sun, nor about the position of the individual in relation to knowledge and so-called higher authorities. Instead, it is about anything’s place in relation to anything else – or, in other words, systems science. This science is, better said, a group of sciences, with branches in practically every area of research.
We call this The Living Systems Revolution. The central idea of this revolution is also the essence of Living Systems Medicine: nonlinear inputs used to improve the intelligent self-management of living systems.
We are all living systems, sharing the common properties of living systems. But what does that mean? To put it bluntly: how is it that we grow and heal and maintain our identities? How do plants grow? What is life? How does the impulse of life occur in living systems? We “create” ourselves, from inside, in a process called “autopoiesis”, which literally means “self-creation” – as brilliantly described by author Fritjof Capra in his science masterwork, “The Web of Life”. In other words, living systems intelligently self-manage. They are self-organizing.
Because of this, we can achieve nonlinear outcomes: we can use an apparently small “David and Goliath” type of input to change the whole system.
Also because of this, the domain of information fields is a powerful door in, to improve the intelligent self-management of the system.
As William Shakespeare wrote: “[Horatio:] O day and night, but this is wondrous strange! [Hamlet in reply:] And therefore as a stranger give it welcome. There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
Let this be a wake-up call for all of us.
