What is Medical Intuition?
Definition and Role
Medical Intuition is defined as a system of expanded perception gained through the development of the human sense of intuition.*
Medical Intuition is part of the emerging fields of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), and focuses on visualization skills and in-depth intuitive scanning to obtain information from the physical body and energy systems.
A new paradigm in mind-body medicine, Medical Intuition can provide essential support to any allopathic, integrative, functional, CAM, and holistic healthcare practice.
What It Is and Is Not
Although Medical Intuition uses the word "medical," it is not to be construed that the use of Medical Intuition is the practice of medicine, psychotherapy, or any other type of therapy.
Rather, Medical Intuition is designed to assist an individual in addressing imbalances in the physical systems of the body, as well as in the energy systems of the body, or Biofield, which includes the aura and the chakra system.
In addition, Medical Intuition can also assist in addressing the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs and emotions, and how they impact the health and well-being of the individual.

* Intuition itself is widely defined as "the ability to acquire knowledge without proof, evidence, or conscious reasoning, or without understanding how the knowledge was acquired."
Different writers give the word "intuition" a variety of meanings. These range from direct access to unconscious knowledge, unconscious cognition, inner sensing, inner insight to unconscious pattern-recognition, and the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning. There are philosophers who contend that the word "intuition" is often misunderstood or misused to mean instinct, truth, belief, meaning, but rather realms of greater knowledge and other subjects, whereas others contend that faculties such as instinct, belief and intuition are factually related. We all have intuition, and we each use it in our own unique way.
