What is Bioenergetic Medicine?

Bioenergetic medicine is a system of medicine distinct and separate from all other forms of medicine practiced today. It is separate from:

Natural Medicine,
Traditional Chinese Medicine

Recognizing that the human body functions chemically, structurally, biologically, and bioenergetically; it  primarily focuses on correcting or any bioenergetic imbalance in the body.  It is believed that such an imbalance will lead to functional imbalances that  can also develop into organic imbalances.

IBEM teaches Bioenergetic Medicine as "a natural system of medicine based on the traditional Native American spiritual teaching that the Creator is a Divine Being of Absolute Energy and that all Creatures including humans are beings of life energy or bio-energy that can become imbalanced and must be restored to natural energetic balance".
