Six Anti-Scientific Strategies for Denying A Highly Effective Therapy (Energy Psychology)

trategy 6: Focus the argument heavily on the underlying energy-oriented theories about the energy-based mechanism of action that have, to date, been difficult to substantiate.There are several problems with this stance. First, it takes the position that since the mechanism of action cannot be pinpointed to energy systems, such as meridians, the approach is invalidated and is even pseudoscientific. This argument is in error on several levels. A quick review of the Physician’s Desk Reference for medication will reveal that, in many circumstances, the mechanism of action of a drug is not clear. This does not stop physicians from prescribing. The fact that a phenomenon cannot be easily measured does not disqualify scientific discourse. It can take decades and billions of dollars for physicists to create the means to test and measure their theories.
