Natural Medicine is a distinct and separate healing art. It does not include the use of drugs or surgery. The Doctor of Natural Medicine (DNM) degree is recognized in 144 countries and also by WHO (World Health Organization). It is not to be confused with Doctorate of Naturopathy (ND) a separate healthcare practice and profession that is recognized in five countries and licensed in a small number of states in the USA, some of which allow a restricted use of drug therapy and minor surgery as part of its practice. 

DNMs are not licensed in various states and prefer not to be licensed since the practice of Natural Medicine is safe and poses no risk to the public. Natural Medicine is based on the Vital Life Force (Spirit) and Natural Doctors do not make a medical diagnosis nor treat medical diseases. DNM's attempt only to restore balance to the Vital Life Force of their client/patients. When the Vital Life Force of the patient or client is in balance, the patient cannot be or become sick according to Natural Medicine.

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

It is separate from:

  • Naturopathy

  • Osteopathy

  • Chiropractic

  • Traditional Chinese Medicine

Recognizing that the human body functions:

  • Chemically

  • Structurally

  • Biologically

  • Bioenergetically

  • ​Spiritually

It  primarily focuses on correcting  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.

​Ojibwe is a Native Indian tribe that uses the term "kina-gebizhi gomih", which translates to "bioenergetic". Native American tribes believe that all of the universe is connected at the most basic level of matter. Bioenergetic Doctors are able to use spiritual and traditional native medicine to help patients to heal themselves.

​Welcome to Institute of BioEnergetic Medicine (IBEM)! We are a natural healing seminary dedicated to the spiritual principles of Native American Medicine (NAM) which includes North and South America, and the empirical experiences of traditional Natural Doctors. Native American medicine strives to restore balance (homeostasis) on every level of life; body, mind, and spirit.  Other indigenous traditional spiritual teachings and principles of natural healing from around the world are also included within the curriculum.

It does not include the use of drugs or surgery. It includes nutrition, herbs, water, light, sound, fasting, and other natural methods of healing including meditation, visualization, trance induction and counseling in the Natural Way.

Our seminary also includes studying similar indigenous cultural systems of Natural Medicine throughout the world such as Taoist practices, ancient Egyptian healing, Vedic healing, Persian healing, and traditional European healing, including the Western Mystery Schools of healing.​

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.​​

"Traditional Native Americans believe that objective reality is the unfolding of the spiritual world on the plane of physical existence. To maintain that healing only takes place through orthodox Western medicine ignores this spiritual dynamic to the detriment of all. Healing that does not involve body, mind, and spirit can never be anything but partial."
