Questions about Energy Blocks?

  1. Jul 10, 2006 #1
    Hello,

    Many people talk about "Energy blocks". Many alternative therapies are based on it. We can think something about variations in blood flow as a mechanism of "blood flow controls/regulations" which may alter blood flow, cause cogestions, vasodilations and vasoconstrictions etc. There are also some other unstabilities as mucus congestion, acid base and water imbalances etc. As mostly thought, such energy blocks are related to neurological system.


    What can be the patho-physiolgy of these so considered as "energy
    blocks"?


    Can there be some unstabilities in neurological system in signal
    movements which can be interpreted as so called "energy blocks"?


    Best wishes.

    Yes but I want scientific explaination to these.

    You want a scientific explanation of something that is not a verifiable scientifically-valid phenomenon? I'm afraid that's like asking a car dealership to order you a blue car that's actually yellow.

    Ok,

    Can congestions, blood flow variations as a measure of "long term blood flow regulation" or otherwise can be expressed somewhat "energy blocks"?

    Whether neurological variations/damages are reversible?

    Kumar,

    All motion and life are consequences of energy since we are atoms and your question will have an answer that will positive if you consider this fact but that is not true in the context you thought.

    All things aren't reversible. A cell death isn't! A damage may let sequels.
    Of course a blood flow measured in "energetic" terms will give a difference if the flow is high or low.

    "Local blood flow control can be divided into two phases;

    1)Acute - rapid change constriction/dilatation of arteriols, metarteriol et spincters.

    2)Long-term control provides a better control by increasing/decreasing
    the physical size and number of blood vessels supplying the tissues. "

    The above are difinitions of long term local blood flow controls. It tells that vasculature and morphological changes of arteries can be possible which may be related to unstable nutrients, O2 levels etc. It can be reversed (obiously if no permanent and irreversivle damages have happened due to such changes) by reversing the excesses/deffcient nutrients etc. in blood.

    I am just trying to understand if this can be the reason to getting so interpreted as energy blocks and how neurological systems can be related to these energy blocks.

    I am also trying to understand if addictions,dependances and tollerances related to this aspect instead of some neurological reason.

    Autonomic nervous system governs all the vasculature of the body.
    Blood supply is governed by cardio-respiratory system but it is also ruled by ANS and CNS.
    The director remains/is the brain.

    That is ok, but is it by damages in nervous system?

    Here you are discussing blood pressure. There is no such thing as "energy blocks" if you are discussing this.

    Please define what you mean by "energy blocks". If you are talking about the nonsensical "energy blocks" that I linked to, then the answer no. "Energy blocks" is a made up crackpot term with no scientific merit. Maybe you are thinking of something real, but are using the wrong term.

    Kumar,

    if the nervous system is damaged then the vasculature that depends from its innervation will have normally problem.

    In a sciatica, i.e., the blood flow is pertubed in the leg.

    As Evo told you, that has nothing to do with an invisible and immaterial energy thing.

    Does it mean that nervous system is commnly not damaged on getting these reversible changes in blood flow variations?

    I'm not sure to understand clearly your question!

    In my example, when a nerve has a dysfunction, it carries blood flow problem in a limb. These problems may, at their turn, bring some local problems in the faulty nerve. If the upper problem is resolved but the duration has brought damages then you have secondary sequels because blood flow variations created local and irreversible injuries.

    The nervous system is very sensitive to blood flow variation and oxygenation. But the axons may be compressed/stressed for a long time and their recovery may be good. Importance is given to the soma of neurons (cell body).

    Once again, there is nothing to understand here. They are little more than a scam. There is nothing about the nervous system to relate to these things, because they do NOTHING. This has been addressed multiple times in this thread, and it's the only answer in this case.
