In today’s episode, I’m excited to be speaking with Dr. Catherine Clinton, a naturopathic doctor who has been practicing for over 15 years. She is an expert in quantum healing and quantum biology.
Dr. Clinton’s Extensive Background in Natural Medicine
Dr. Clinton has always taken a holistic, natural approach in her practice. She focuses on helping patients understand how reconnecting with nature can support healing from a wide array of health conditions. These include autoimmunity, mental health issues, gastrointestinal disorders, hormone imbalances, infections, autoimmunity, anxiety, depression, migraines, and more.
Even from a young age, Dr. Clinton was drawn to natural medicine and fascinated by the body’s innate capacity to heal itself. She decided to become a naturopathic doctor because she wanted to get to the root causes of health issues, not just treat superficial symptoms.
Throughout her career, Dr. Clinton has continued learning about new holistic modalities while also studying ancient healing systems like Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. She believes we need to honor the wisdom of indigenous cultures that understood the intimate relationship between humans and nature.
Dr. Clinton’s clinical expertise combined with her passion for bridging ancient wisdom and modern science makes her perfectly suited to explain the emerging field of quantum biology. She has a gift for synthesizing complex concepts into accessible language for patients and students alike.
An Introduction to the Field of Quantum Biology
What is quantum biology? In essence, quantum biology examines biological processes through the lens of quantum physics. It looks at how quantum phenomena like entanglement, tunneling, and coherence affect living systems.
Quantum physics evolved out of remarkable discoveries in the early 20th century that revealed the strange, almost mystical world of subatomic particles. In this quantum realm, regular physics do not apply. Particles can exist in two places at once. They can also remain connected over long distances in ways that defy our normal understanding of space and time.
For a long time, quantum phenomena were only thought to occur under tightly controlled lab conditions at extremely cold temperatures. But quantum biology explores how life hijacks these bizarre quirks of the quantum world to enable its amazing feats.
Some key topics within the field of quantum biology include:
- The role of electron flow in facilitating biochemical reactions. Rather than simple games of chance, evidence suggests finely orchestrated energy exchanges.
- How water inside the body structures itself to support health. Certain molecular configurations of water provide an optimal “terrain” for cells.
- The impact of vibration, frequency, and resonance on biological functioning. Our cells and tissues tune into various frequencies that modulate their activities.
- The interconnected nature of physiological systems. The old mechanistic view of separated bodily systems is giving way to models of intertwined communication and feedback loops.
- The influence of our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs on our biology through mechanisms we are only beginning to grasp.
Researchers are discovering that living organisms exploit quantum effects to enable biological processes. Quantum biology reminds us that we are energy beings embedded in a web of energy. It reveals the constant interplay between our external terrain and internal terrain.
As pioneers in this emerging discipline, we must tread carefully to build on empirical science without veering into pseudoscience. Quantum biology holds great promise to expand the boundaries of health and healing for all of us.
The Critical Importance of Structured Water in the Body
One particular area of focus in quantum biology is structured water inside the body. Dr. Clinton has studied extensively the pioneering work of Dr. Gerald Pollock from the University of Washington. His research shows that next to cells and tissues, our bodies contain a previously unrecognized “fourth phase” of water with very unique properties.
This special structured water consists of hexagonally stacked sheets of molecules that form what looks like a honeycomb lattice. Standard H2O has a more random molecular arrangement. But structured water molecules align in a repeating hexagonal pattern due to their hydrogen bonding. This allows it to function in some rather astonishing ways.
For one, the structured water zone is negatively charged. This negative charge enables the seamless flow of energy within the body that powers our every biochemical reaction. In addition, the voltage created by structured water zones maintains optimal cell membrane potential and mitochondrial function critical for health.
Researchers are still teasing out all the roles of structured water, but its importance cannot be overstated. Structured water provides the ideal molecular terrain for our cellular constituents to carry out their activities. However, certain factors can degrade structured water, potentially contributing to disease.
- Dehydration – Not obtaining sufficient structured water from regular hydration.
- Poor diet – Eating foods that promote cellular inflammation and oxidation.
- Toxins or infections – Which damage tissues and impair metabolic processes.
- Lack of natural light – Our primary source of the infrared frequencies that build structured water.
- Excess stress – Which causes electron loss, lowering cell voltage provided by water layers.
- Physical trauma – Which can alter water structures in the brain and nervous system.
- Overuse of electronics – These emit EMFs shown to degrade structured water.
Fortunately, there are many simple, natural ways we can enhance structured water levels to support optimal health.
- Regular hydration with clean, filtered water.
- Eating an antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory whole foods diet.
- Exposure to gentle infrared energies from sunlight, heat, or near infrared bulbs.
- Grounding to replenish electrons that maintain the water battery.
- Exercise, since movement generates structuring infrared frequencies.
- Reducing EMF exposure by limiting device time and using shielding.
- Stress relief practices like meditation, yoga, time in nature, and social connection.
By better understanding water as a living matrix that communicates information, we can learn to optimize it in our bodies. This provides the ideal terrain for resilience and regeneration.
Additional Ways We Can Benefit from the Science of Quantum Biology
In addition to water research, many other insights from quantum biology can help optimize wellness when applied properly.
Spending time in nature helps us reconnect and restore depleted energy. The natural frequencies permeating the outdoors entrain our systems. Forest bathing research proves time outside literally alters our nervous system state.
Exposing our bodies to variable temperatures promotes adaptability rather than a static climate. Heat and cold cues build mitochondria and antioxidant reserves. Practices like contrast hydrotherapy leverage these effects.
Allowing circadian rhythms to flow naturally by reducing artificial light at night. Our bodies require dark to initiate key phases of detoxification, brain cleanup, and hormone balance.
Grounding the body helps replenish electrons we lose coping with chronic stress. These electrons increase the negative charge of our water battery. Walking barefoot is free grounding.
Identifying and processing stored emotional traumas. Unresolved grief and pain creates blocks in our bioenergetic fields. Energy psychology techniques clear traumas stuck in the body and psyche.
Cultivating healthy relationships is an antidote to an epidemic of disconnection, which manifests as disease. Loving bonds help satisfy our core need for belonging.
Choosing natural, uncomplicated solutions helps us tend to our inner and outer terrain—the foundation of health. Ancient wisdom recognized that supporting the body’s self-healing abilities cures most ills.
Practicing gratitude, compassion and presence may beneficially structure water in our bodies. Positive intentions imprint information fields that surround us.
The more we understand our quantum nature and reciprocal relationship with the unified field of the cosmos, the better we can support wellbeing.
Remembering Our Inherent Interconnectedness is Foundational to Health
At its core, quantum biology reminds us that we are inseparable from the world around us. Air, water, sunlight, earth—we are intimately woven into the fabric of nature. Yet so often we forget just how fundamentally our minds and bodies rely on this interconnectedness.
Many chronic diseases stem from losing touch with our terrain and environment. Yet even small steps to honor our bond with nature, animals, loved ones, and our own bodies and minds can tangible improve our health. We have become experts at manipulating our external world, but often at the expense of internal balance.
Reclaiming health in the modern world requires rediscovering and honoring our bond with nature, each other, and our own deepest selves.
This may mean:
- Making time for grounding activities like gardening, forest bathing, earthing, and contemplative time near water and other natural features.
- Adopting circadian-aligned routines supporting natural biorhythms of activity, waking, eating, and sleeping.
- Developing present moment awareness through mindfulness practices that disentangle us from constant ruminations that generate stress.
- Fostering community and heartfelt human connections that satisfy our inherent needs for belonging and intimacy.
- Slowing down and simplifying some aspects of 21st century life so we can listen to our body’s signals about what it needs.
Quantum healing entails rediscovering our wholeness. When we embrace our interconnection with all of life, balance and wellbeing naturally follow. The transition from feeling separate and overwhelmed to feeling connected and empowered holds the key to quantum healing.
Catalyzing Our Own Healing Journeys
No matter one’s current state of health, small steps to honor our bond with nature, animals, loved ones, and our own bodies and minds can tangibly improve our wellbeing.
With greater knowledge of our quantum biological nature, we can more consciously direct our mind, body and behaviors in alignment with wellness. We may find ourselves naturally adopting habits and practices that optimize the parameters needed for self-healing.
However, knowledge alone is not enough. We must also cultivate self-trust and self-care. When we view even small positive changes through the lens of compassion rather than criticism, it supports consistency. Our nervous systems do not like pressure and timelines. Patience allows slow but steady progress.
What matters most is refocusing each day on our inner alignment with qualities like love, joy, community, presence, and peace. Our outer terrain effortlessly follows where we lead it from the inside out.
