A Paradigm Shift in Five Element Theory

I'd like to start a discussion about the evolving nature of healthCare theory, and need for paradigm shifts to match the evolution of our scientific knowledge of the quantum anatomy, physiology, and the neuroendocrine system, as our methods of observation lead to more and more awareness of how the neuroendocrine system governs everything from inflammation to immunity.

Many current paradigms and systems of modern medical theory have been based on patriarchal influences, cross culturally, over centuries. These systems have limitations based on outdated, limited awareness, and in some cases a foundation of control and oppression. I propose a paradigm shift that includes a re-polarization, and shifting of perspective based on a negentropic cycle of lifting and supporting energies to help process, heal, and transform traumas that have been evolving within our human species, and epigenetically transferring information to create conditions of disease. The current Five Element traditions of Asian medicine are tied to a limited understanding of the human energy (nervous) system, and a patriarchal need for control.

The Tan Cycle, that I will describe in an upcoming publication, can accomplish this by shifting the spirit affiliations in a way that honors the traditional analysis, but allows for an evolution of theory away from a pathway rooted in patriarchal principles of control and genesis, toward a more supportive theory of healing that is aligned with our current understanding of how trauma is documented by the body, and how trauma manifests through cognitive and physiological dysregulation. This shift in perspective will help practitioners in addressing, accepting, lifting, and supporting, the foundational energies that create an environment where the body can begin to transform in a more gentle and efficient way.

The wisdom of the philosophy of treatment outlined in the Tan Cycle rests in the perspective of the observer. The only way to test the potential of this truth is to expand your awareness and use these philosophies in practical application, in clinic; results depend on the individual nature of the energy between the practitioner and the patient. It is my hope that with this new awareness we may go forward with a new perspective, and see if our individual observations shift in anyway; if there is a now a resonance from this different level of understanding that informs the future.
