Dr. Klinghardt’s Five Levels of Healing
Five Levels of Healing
According to the teachings of Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD, to enjoy complete and lasting wellness, you must tap into all five levels of healing:
To treat your body on only one level – for example, just the physical level – true and lasting healing can’t occur.
On the first level, with your Physical Body, practitioners apply their five senses to a patient’s physical body for diagnosis and treatment.
Mechanics and chemistry in the forms of exercise, drugs, herbs, physical therapy, diet, chiropractic, osteopathy, and surgery lie on this first level.
Meet Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, PhD
Known for his successful treatment of chronic pain and illness, he studied medicine and psychology in Freiburg, West Germany.
Dr. Klinghardt has been blending traditional and alternative medicine and psychology for over 32 years.
Dr. Klinghardt developed Autonomic Response Testing, a comprehensive diagnostic system that has transformed many practices in the U.S. and abroad into healing centers and has helped many practitioners become accomplished healers.
In 2007, Dr. Klinghardt received the prestigious “Physician of the Year” award from the Global Foundation for Integrative Medicine for his work, known worldwide through his teachings.
The second level, your Energy Body examines the electric currents of your body and nervous system, sometimes referred to as your chakras, your acupuncture meridians, your aura, or your biophoton field.
Conventional diagnostic methods such as EKG, HRV, MRI, X-rays, and CAT scans fall into the second Energy Body level.
Alternative diagnostic methods on this level include thermography, Dr. Klinghardt’s Autonomic Response Testing (ART), kinesiology, and Chinese pulses.
Treatments that work on your energy body include acupuncture, Qigong, meditation, breath therapy, bodywork, yoga, microcurrent therapies, and radiation treatments.
The third level of healing, or your Mental Body, is where all of your life experiences are recorded. This includes your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes.
Psychological and homeopathic treatments work to heal on this deep level. Included here are Mental Field Therapy (MFT), homeopathy, Applied Psycho-Neurobiology (APN), and psychotherapy.
The fourth level of healing, your Intuitive Body, is through your connection with others, or your human energy field.
Diagnostic methods and healing techniques include APN, dream analysis, art therapy, color and sound therapies, hypnotherapy, Shamanism, Jungian Psychotherapy, and Systemic Family Constellations.
The fifth level of healing, your Spirit Body, is unique to your relationship with your God, spirit or higher consciousness. This includes personal prayer, self-healing, chanting, and true meditation.
Only as you heal and build upon each level as a foundation can you discover complete healing and lasting wellness.
