A Revolutionary New Pathway to Health: Heal the Message

Shen Medicine: Changing Messages of Illness to Health as Told by a Neurosurgeon by Peter Hudoba, M.D.
Foreword by Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha (Waterside Productions, Inc., 2019, Paperback, 200 pages, $15.95)

“Proper functioning of everything in the universe depends on having a correct message. If the message is good, then the functions of energy and matter in any given entity are also good. If the message is not correct, then the energy and matter cannot function correctly.”
– Peter Hudoba, M.D.

Shen medicine adds a crucial missing dimension to treating illness. Dr. Peter Hudoba, a neurosurgeon and a Master Teacher trained by world-renowned transformational leader Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha, has brought together his lifelong dedication to healing illness and his passionate interest in ancient wisdom traditions to present this new form of medicine to help patients with a wide variety of illnesses. Despite his successes in using both Western medicine and his knowledge of acupuncture and the wisdom of Chinese traditional medicine, he felt there was a deeper dimension that was also needed to get to the root cause of illness. In the year 2000, he met Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha and discovered the next step in Shen medicine. Shen is the Chinese word for soul that Master Sha developed further to encompass soul, heart, and mind. The key wisdom is the flow of messages from the soul to the heart, mind, and body.

After training with Master Sha and becoming a high-level teacher himself, Dr. Hudoba is now doing research in the extraordinary effectiveness of Shen medicine, when combined with other modalities, for helping to treat chronic health conditions, and for fostering rejuvenation and the maintenance of good health.

In his new book Shen Medicine, he explains clearly how negative messages contribute to the origins of illness and provides readers simple but extremely effective techniques to mobilize soul, heart, and mind to help remove these harmful messages and the blockages that stand in the way of health and well-being.

In a succinct and understandable fashion, Dr. Hudoba presents forty-six recent case studies, including the results of medical tests and patient reports, to show the remarkable role that Shen medicine can play in supporting a path to wellness.

Everyone can benefit by learning and applying this unique and powerful knowledge to help prevent illness, to help improve health, and to create the conditions for a longer, healthier, and happier life.

Q & A with Peter Hudoba, M.D.

What is Shen Medicine?

Shen medicine is the medicine of the soul, heart, mind (consciousness). Shen is an ancient Chinese word that, in Master Zhi Gang Sha’s teachings, encompasses the soul, heart, and mind. Western medicine focuses on the physical matter of the body and Chinese traditional medicine focuses on the energy of the body. Shen medicine complements both Eastern and Western medicine, adding the special Shen component. In my book Shen Medicine, I explain how this works and present forty-six case studies, including scientific evidence and patient reports of improvements in their well-being.

How did you get involved in research about this alternative healing method?

Since I was a child, I have always been connected in some way with healing. The effects of sickness on human life fascinated me, and I always had a great passion and desire to help those who were ill.

To satisfy my deep interest, I studied many healing arts. I went to university to study medicine and became a neurosurgeon and university teacher at a Canadian medical school. I also studied and practiced acupuncture and energy healing and went to China to learn herbal treatments and therapeutic massage. I studied and practiced many different ancient Vedic, Buddhist, and Taoist healing practices.

But I knew there was still something missing. Many illnesses that we treat as doctors have a nasty habit of returning. As I see it, we still do not know how to fundamentally change the illness itself.

It was only after I met Master Sha in 2000 that my understanding of health and the cause of illness became complete. Under the tutelage of Master Sha, I was able to combine my deepest longings — my spiritual quest and my healing path — as one.

What is the fundamental principle of Shen Medicine?

Fundamental to Shen Medicine is the understanding of shen qi jing, and the flow of messages that is the key mechanism underlying all changes in the universe. Shen means message, soul or spirit and includes soul, heart, and mind/consciousness; qi refers to the vital energy or life force, and jing is matter and includes all the tiny particles of our bodies and everything else on planet Earth and in the universe.

The relationships among shen, qi, and jing are the fundamental principle and sacred wisdom and practice of Shen medicine. Master Sha presented this in four sacred phrases in his book Soul Mind Body Science System, co-authored with Dr. Rulin Xiu. These four phrases explain how message or information flows in the universe: soul is the boss and passes along a decision to the heart, heart awareness receives and comprehends the message and passes it on to the mind, mind processes it and passes it on to energy, energy takes action and makes changes on matter. This flow of messages brings shen qi jing into alignment as one. In a healthy body, this flow is uninterrupted. If it is blocked by corrupted or impure messages, there is a misalignment and illness and blockages in any aspect of life can occur. In Shen medicine, there are practical techniques to help restore this flow to support good health, rejuvenation, and prolonging of life.

What are the key concepts of Shen medicine?

In addition to the concept of shen qi jing (soul, heart, mind, energy, and matter), the key concepts of Shen medicine include cell theory, energy theory, field theory, space theory, energy centers and energy pathways, the meridians.

In my book Shen Medicine, I explain that to maintain health the production of energy by cells needs to be at the appropriate level, and the energy released into the spaces between the cells needs to be moved away so there is no stagnation and buildup.

If the messages that regulate the production of energy by the cells and the messages that regulate the flow of energy in the energy circles are pure and without corruption, then all cells can be in a perfect state. This is the fundamental basis for health.

What is the nature of message in illness?

We create corrupted messages by our misguided thinking, behavior, and emotions. Once created, they create new corrupted messages and reinforce the ones we already have.

It is amazing that cultures that most likely could not have direct contact with one another share the same belief. It is identical among the magical Bushmen healers and shamans in the Kalahari Desert in Africa, visitors to the Catholic healing pilgrimage are in Lourdes, France, the Hindu healing temple in Benares, India, the curanderos in the Andes Mountains, Navajo healers in America, and Taoist masters in China. Even the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates, who was a priest working in the healing temple of the Greek god of medicine, Aesclepius, on the Greek island of Kos, healed his patients by a combination of physical treatment and spiritual healing, based on similar principles.

What are some of the practices that support healing the message of illness?

I believe that the best results are achieved when we employ all healing modalities together. Some illnesses may be so advanced or the corrupted messages so strong that a spiritual modality alone is not enough and significant improvement cannot be achieved. We need to work on the origin of the corrupted message, on the original mistake – the spiritual aspect that is the primary cause of the corrupted message.

In Shen Medicine I describe the various practices that can be used to remove negative messages: a practice that involves prayer, visualization of light, and chanting a mantra to bring light to the area that is affected.

Forgiveness practice is a key to self-renewal, but must be done with complete sincerity, humility, and honesty for effectiveness. It may have to be done repeatedly to cleanse the shen (message) area with love, light, and forgiveness.

Routine daily practice creates well-developed foundational energy centers that form the basis for a successful program that will include meditations and chanting.

In Shen Medicine, I take readers step-by-step through Master Sha’s special Four Power Technique. All of these practices, along with the practice of Tao Calligraphy, a special art form created by Master Sha, can help with removing the messages and mistakes from our past to support well-being.

What kinds of illnesses have been treated by Shen medicine with beneficial effects?

Shen medicine has been used along with traditional treatments for treating a wide range of ailments, including:

  • Metabolic, endocrine, and immune illnesses
  • Infections
  • Cardiovascular illnesses
  • Respiratory illnesses
  • Gynecological illnesses
  • Neurological illnesses
  • Psychiatric illnesses
  • Musculoskeletal illnesses
  • Cancer and tumors

In Shen Medicine, I present forty-six case studies which provide the results of medical tests and the personal reports from patients who have experienced improvements and, in some cases, full recovery.

“Shen medicine states the root cause of sickness is impure or blocked messages; to transform and purify these messages is to transform sickness.” – Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha

“If pure message flows, all life flourishes; if impure message blocks the flow, there can be failure in any aspect of life.” — Dr. and Master Zhi Gang Sha

“There is an unseen world everywhere, around us and within us, wherever we are. Our minds and hearts are so preoccupied with the physical world and its trappings that most of us think the visible and tangible world is all there is. Yet, it most certainly is not.” — Peter Hudoba, M.D.

“As far as humanity can remember, there has always been a persistent belief that beyond what we can see, touch, and feel, there is more. Not only is there a spiritual world but, in fact, this spiritual world is superior to and is guiding the physical world.” — Peter Hudoba, M.D.

“Soul or spirit is message or information and it is in every particle of matter, from the smallest to the biggest. Soul carries a message of how a physical entity, the matter, is designed, how it is formed, how it will function, and what will happen to it. Soul carries a message of how energy will affect the matter. Both energy and matter are carriers of message.” — Peter Hudoba, M.D.

“Proper functioning of everything in the universe depends on having a correct message. If the message is good, then the functions of energy and matter in any given entity are also good. If the message is not correct, then the energy and matter cannot function correctly.” — Peter Hudoba, M.D.
