When a living being is attacked by a disease, he develops a variety of symptoms. To cure the person different medicines are administered. Treatment by these chemicals bring about changes in the human chemistry. These changes appear to have cured the person. In fact, it is not so. It is observed that only the symptoms have disappeared due to the effects of electromagnetic energies of those medicines.
It is believed that operation of living organism follows a particular sequence as under:-
Living being -> attacked by disease -> disease affects body structure -> treated by medicine -> The chemical corrections changes body chemistry -> resulting into electromagnetic energies as a cure (both positive and negative energies)
Dr. William A. Tiller a professor at Stanford in department of Material Science propounded that operation of living organism should be expanded beyond human body. According to him positive energy is the physical body surrounded by negative energy that is the etheric body, followed by other bodies like Mental body, Spiritual body, right up to the Devine body. These different bodies are also called aura which surround our physical body. According to Dr. Tiller, the healing is complete only when all levels have been addressed fully.
Reiki being a holistic treatment, when a person is subjected to Reiki treatment, even as an adjunct to chemical treatment, the body gets fully cured at the all the above mentioned levels
