Energy and vibrational medicine  
On this edition , DrZ (Eugene Zampieron, ND) interviews co
host The Natural Nurse (Ellen Kamhi PhD,RN, AHN-BC, RH(AHG) about the field of energy medicine and quantum healing. We know energy can be used to diagnose diseases (X-Ray CAT scan MRI), but what about directing energy to heal people? 
Laser and phototherapy is undeniably a part of conventional medicine, but other forms of energetic healing such as  subtle energy, energetic systems of healing such as homeopathy, plant based energy medicine, acupuncture, radionics, non-religious prayer, therapeutic touch, Dr Royal Rife’s  device,  have been rejected by “ Flat Earth medicine”  even though they too have definitive effects on the cells and self.
Dr Kamhi has spent a large part of her career exploring and understanding these energetic systems of medicine, and will share her expertise on the history and philosophy of energy healing, the various types, and even some devices available to assist practitioners.
Hand Exercise- An Important Part of Wellness

Dr. Terry Zachary is a former professional golfer and sports chiropractor from Langley, BC, Canada a suburb of Vancouver. He is the developer of the Handmaster Plus hand exercise system and is the author of the book ‘Great Hands, Great Life!’

Dr. Zachary regularly saw grip repetition injuries that were the result of ‘squeeze-only’ hand exercise or NO exercise in athletes, especially in professional golfers that he travelled with. He found that hand muscles become imbalanced due to the repetitive gripping within both golf and often in their grip training for golf.

Dr. Zachary soon realized that daily repetitive gripping was a root cause in most common finger, thumb, hand, wrist, carpal tunnel, forearm, and elbow imbalance conditions in all grip activities.

Dr. Zachary is now a world leader in grip training and education. He has redefined hand exercise to the general public, as well as to healthcare & fitness professionals, athletes, musicians, and grip-related workers, computer users, sports athletes, and hobbyists around the world.

Dr. Zachary promotes regular, full range of motion exercise to naturally strengthen and balance muscles and to maximize circulation and create healthy, functional joints and tissues.
