In Dynamic Living Magazine Vol. 1 Jan/Feb 2011, readers were treated to the excellent article “BIOENERGETIC MEDICINE – OLD MEDICINE -THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE” by Dr. Donese Worden. The history of bioenergetic medicine was introduced along with an explanation of the vibrational levels of the human body. In this article, I would like to discuss a method of treating the spiritual body to promote good health and to cure dis-ease.

As a rule, surgeons and medical doctors trained in Western medicine are not exposed to alternative methods of healing during medical school, nor do these techniques appear during residency. In the United States, physicians are taught that restoration of health can be accomplished by the selective administration of medications and surgery. Known as allopathic training, the curriculum involves counteractive methods of combating disease. If the body is harmed by infection, we prescribe antibiotics to kill the offending bacteria. But should we stick with the traditional so-called “tried and true” techniques or should we consider getting back to the old time ways?

There is no doubt about it: Humans have healed themselves through time immemorial, using a variety of natural methods. What was learned of herbal remedies was first passed by word of mouth, then later, through the printed word and on to the current digital formats. Many of the most effective medications are derived from natural sources; the bulk of antibiotics on the market are derived from natural products. In addition to drugs, many tools and instruments have been devised to aid the doctors in healing. However, Western Medicine has, for the most part, turned a blind eye to methods of energy healing, such as Reiki, Qi Gong, Spiritism, acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, etc. 

But, this eye is opening slowly. There is a movement afoot to instruct young physicians in the use of additional new tools for their medical bags. Enlightened medical schools are making their students aware of holistic methods of healing: complementary and alternative options to traditional allopathic methods of treating disease. Along with the physical body, the spiritual body is now being cared for. In this article, I am going to discuss Okada Purifying Therapy (OPT), a way that universal energy can be called upon to treat dis-ease. This method of healing is open to all who would like to heal and does not require any special talents or innate abilities.

Named after Mokichi Okada (1882 - 1955), OPT is a method of treating disease which uplifts and purifies the spiritual body by partaking of natural foods, those grown without pesticides or commonly used fertilizers. In addition, the appreciation of art, beauty and flowers, is of vital importance to uplift the spirit and to promote healing. A significant part of treatment is the channeling of a spiritual light energy from the palm of the hand. Just how did OPT come about?
