1.0 Welcome and Introduction
Welcome to the IBIH Diploma in Bioenergetic Health Coaching. The IBIH Diploma is the first international education programme specifically in bioenergetic and informational healthcare. It provides a unique foundation in the subject for practitioners and would-be practitioners, as well as indispensable guidance on setting up and running a thriving bioenergetic practice.
This course also provides basic information about the most common energy medicine devices and thus you will be basically able to distinguish them from each other and assess their uses and functions.
Dealing professionally with health, well-being, wellness, and so on requires good knowledge of the basics of human anatomy, physiology and pathology, and in addition, Bioenergetics. You will understand the different ways of viewing things from this Bio-Energetic view-point. You will also be able to market your services effectively and run a successful BIH practice.
This course is written and put together by experienced physicians and health care practitioners. IBIH trainers and tutors are all experienced therapists with profound knowledge in theory, practice, didactics and methodology.
1.1 Definition of Bioenergetic and Informational Healthcare
Bioenergetic and informational healthcare (BIH) concerns biology (the study of life) and physics (as in energy, the underlying animating force of life) and how these two disciplines intersect.
Bioenergetics is concerned with how energy flows through the body. Until recently, the focus was solely on energy, but now we recognise that the transfer of information is equally, if not more, important.
Physicists at the cutting edge of science are acknowledging that information is a thing unto itself, as necessary to the functioning of the world - and hence your body - as is energy.
BIH uses these principles to maximise health and healing, recognising that energy and information control health and healing in the physical body because they direct the body’s biofield (or body-field) - an information management system which oversees the vast number of intimately linked processes required of a functioning human being.
From a BIH point of view, the primary cause of disease and loss of well-being, whether physical, emotional or both, are viewed as a disruption or distortion in the body’s information fields. If distorted information is left uncorrected, eventually it can work its way down into deeper levels of your being, until finally it manifests as symptoms in the body. By the time that happens, the distortion is heavily imprinted, and it may take time and repeated messages to correct.
