In this first video of a three part series, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt explains the first two levels of The Five Levels of Healing.


The Five Levels of Healing are based on a healing model developed some 12,000 years ago. It has been the influence for Tibetan medicine, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), as well as Ayurvedic medicine. At its core, the model simply states that you are not just your physical body. You are also surrounded and penetrated by four other invisible energy bodies.


The first level is your physical body; the basis of your physical structure and your biochemistry. You can perceive this first level with your five senses. However, there‘s more to your physical body than meets the eye, which Dr. Klinghardt explains in fascinating detail in this video.


The second level is your energy body, which surrounds your physical body and where the forces of physics play out. Your energy body helps regulate your physical body.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt is one of my most important mentors in complementary medicine. I interviewed him earlier this year, and this video is just a tiny portion of our full two-hour discussion on this fascinating topic.  

As strange and “new age” as these concepts may sound, it’s valuable to remember that these are not NEW theories. These healing models were developed some 12,000 years ago – LONG before someone had the idea to create drugs out of materials that don’t exist naturally in our environment, and WAY before our current leaders in bioenergetic medicine, such as Dr. Bruce Lipton and Dr. Geerd Hamer, whose research offer scientific credence and validity to concepts like these (for those who need that). 

Healing by Aiming For the Root

In this video, Dr. Klinghardt explains the first two levels, namely that of your physical and your energetic bodies.

I doubt that anyone would seriously argue with the idea that the most effective way to treat disease is by treating foundational cause. If your disease originated from your energy body, for example, addressing that component would make most sense. Taking a pill that influences your physical chemistry will not address the original trauma because it’s treating the wrong “body.”

As another example, if you have a spiritually rooted illness and take a medicine or herb or change your diet, you may not experience any improvement. However, another person with the same outward disease as you, but whose symptoms are rooted in Level 1 -- which is caused by diet and behavior -- may find spiritual healing to be ineffective, whereas dietary changes and exercise can heal them.

Things That Influence Your Health on Level 1 and 2

Level 1 healing in Dr. Klinghardts practice correspond to the main focus of my own practice, and the majority of my recommendations are in fact based on this premise: that by following proper diet and lifestyle, you restore your body’s inherent balance and create optimal health.

Level 2 – your energy body – is unfortunately heavily affected, in a very negative way, by electrosmog such as radio waves from cell phones and WiFi, and Dr. Klinghardt explains in his interview how important it is to eliminate as much of this bio-electrical interference as possible, in order to restore health on this level.

According to this multi-level premise, your energy body affects and in fact helps regulate your physical body, which is yet another way to explain why and how cell phones are such a tremendous health hazard.

You can’t see radio waves, you can’t see your thoughts, and you can’t see your energy body, but they do exist – just like gravity exists as a force of energy – and you ignore the impact of these energies on your health at your own peril…

My Level 1 Recommendations for Optimal Health

In keeping with the spirit of the theme here, my Top 10 guidelines for optimal health are rooted in Level 1, 2, and Level 3 (your mental body, which I’ll review next week in Part 2 of this series).

These are such permanent truths they will never lead you astray, regardless of what marvels modern science comes up with next:

  1. Eat a healthy diet that’s right for your nutritional type (paying very careful attention to keeping your insulin levels down)
  2. Drink plenty of clean water
  3. Manage your stress
  4. Exercise
  5. Get appropriate doses of sunlight
  6. Limit toxin exposure
  7. Consume healthy fat
  8. Eat plenty of raw food
  9. Optimize insulin and leptin levels
  10. Get plenty of sleep

Sunlight, especially, could easily be considered a miracle treatment as it treats both Level 1 and Level 2. Physically, sunlight is vital for adequate vitamin D production, but it also has a wonderful effect on your energy body.

Dr. Klinghardt actually uses various colored lasers to treat the energy body by nurturing the biophotons field with the correct colors, and sunlight can also offer many of the same beneficial effects naturally.

For more information about how sunlight affects you biophoton field and how it impacts your health, please read my article How Wild Cheetahs Dying Can Massively Improve Your Health, which is also in today’s newsletter.

By adhering to these basic tenets of optimal health – the basics of a healthy lifestyle, not just a temporary fix for a particular ailment -- you are building a healthy mind and body, and thereby safeguarding yourself against a multitude of health problems and serious diseases.
