In some parts of the world doctors get paid for preventing disease and keeping their patients healthy. Wouldn’t that be a great thing to have here in the USA! Unfortunately, our society has become obssessed with taking a pill for whatever ails ya. They’re even creating diseases so that they can sell medicines to take the symptoms away. That’s what most doctors are trained to do, take symptoms away. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could get to the root cause of a disease and really heal that so that the symptoms would go away? And, once that is done really work at preventing it from happening again by having a better diet, changing life-depleting life styles, improving health overall, and the like.
The American Medical Association has really done a terrific job in handling most emergency situations. I would put myself in their hands if I needed emergency treatment. They’ve got that down pat! The AMA has done a wonderful job in many areas, but it’s the chronic disease area that is lacking. We need to get help from people who are willing to see us as more than our bodies. We need the whole being to be taken into account so that healing is happening on all levels. Removing symtpoms works for a while and can make us feel better, but getting to the root cause of the problem and learning why we have the symptoms is the only way to go in order to heal.
German New Medicine and its offshoot, Meta-Medicine, are probably one of the best ways that we can not only heal, but also prevent disease. What would that type of prevention look like? Well, it could have many aspects among which would be meditation and introspection for starters. If we could learn to examine our lives closely to understand and accept what is going on, how it is affecting us and how we feel and think about it, we would be much closer to warding off disease. GNM and MM see the patient/client as a being consisting of body, mind, spirit, and emotions and work with all of those areas to bring about healing on the deepest cellular level possible. MM goes further than GNM, which relies totally on the body to heal itself after resolving a trauma or conflict. MM uses different therapeutic techniques such as EFT, NLP, and other energy processes to promote and assist the entire being in the healing of body, mind, and spirit. Hence, it is a real Holistic Healing model. MM practitioners, or Integrative Health Coaches, work with clients to help them make necessary changes in their diet, attitude, environment, and social circumstances, as well as helping the client not only find the conflict that is causing dis-ease but also resolving it in real-life terms as well as on the cellular level.
When we are aware of what we find unsettling or disturbing we are not in denial. Awareness must come before any other step. Living consciously promotes awareness. Once we are aware we then accept what is happening but that doesn’t mean we do nothing about it. Of course, as the Serenity Prayer says, we do need to accept the things we cannot change, but we also have to have the courage to change the things we can. When we accept we then need to move to action whether that means surrendering it to a Higher Power, ending a relationship, or changing jobs, action needs to be taken and goes along with acceptance. Only then can we remove ourselves from the powerless victim stance. We are then living from the Higher Self or Unlimited Self which is the authentic self, the real self, the powerful self.
Do your best to live in this paradigm: I LOVE WHERE I AM; I LOVE WHO I’M WITH; I LOVE WHAT I’M DOING; I LOVE AND ACCEPT MYSLEF WITH ALL MY GIFTS AND BLESSINGS AND WITH ALL MY FAULTS AND LIMITATIONS!
