The book offers a reinterpretation of mind and body processes based upon the concept of an informational continuum acting at the interface of quantum and classical physics. Looking at mind-body medicine and the effect which the natural 'energy forces' within the body have in the maintenance of normal health and well-being, new research at all levels indicates that living processes interact within the energy domains of the quantum world. This quantum biology is the foundation of Energy Medicine and provides a scientific evidence base for the theories proposed.
