The National Institute of Health has been quoted as saying that “80% of all medical conditions are caused by stress”,
so by understanding and managing the stressful factors that undermine our health we can begin to take back control. Since we are not given a guide book when we are given a body it is not surprising that we fail to understand the inner workings of the biological system we live in. A simplified version of what we most need to understand would be: When not compromised and side tracked by overwhelming stressors, the body is capable of, and innately programmed toward, self-healing, and will return itself to normalized functioning (where possible). Our job is simply to live as harmoniously with nature as we can in order to allow the body to create the wellness and biological balance we expect of it.
It is our human tendency to mistake the labels and names of various health conditions with the idea that they are understood. This over simplified “reductionism” approach of labeling a disease and then treating it with a single standard protocol fails miserably when applied to any dynamic living system. This system of medicine, although effective in dealing with emergencies, continues to fail us in the areas of degenerative disease rooted in diet, lifestyle and mental, emotional, or physical stress. Furthermore, recent studies have identified this same system of Reductionism as the number one killer in modern society.
The Latin root word for “doctor” is “educator”, which implies that the original intent of a “doctor” was to educate. We all know that this role is no longer assumed and, quite the contrary, you may be in and out of your doctor’s office within minutes, with a prescription in your hand, and none the wiser. This of course is not always the case, but more often than not the role of education is left to the patient. It is also unfortunate that the less educated we are in matters of our health the more likely we are to comply to the attitude that this quick fix, magic bullet, prescriptive form of medicine is the remedy for our health concern. We have been conditioned to think of symptoms and health in terms of “diagnosis and treatment”, which remains, by “self appointment”, the exclusive domain of the “experts”. Sad but true “Our health care system today is calcified by academic arrogance, vested moneyed interests, and a “disease-care” mentality that profits from disease management rather than prevention.”
At the molecular and atomic level all parts of matter work in conjunction with all other parts of the universe. The brain creates an image of reality by combining the already reduced and abstracted information gathered by the nervous system. An image arises out of this combination of new, incoming information and earlier experiences.
Superimposed on all this are the habits formed through education and upbringing on how to view a new stimulus. The brain is programmed to ignore and leave perceptions unnoticed depending on the perceptive habits of the person. When an unexpected conflict shock is experienced the body sets in motion biological programs intendended to help and heal but due to our limited understanding of these gracious programs we instead interfere and sabbotage our body’s natural healing. It is of no surprise our multi-billion dollar medical system is benefiting from this as the population base gets sicker and sicker. Never before has the world experienced such an increase in “disease labels” that are intended to secure “a market” for both pharmaceutical and allopathic interests. There is no apparent interest or understanding of causation.
Within this understanding and spirit I approach all healing. In Biofeedback I am able to interface below conscious perception which addresses the reactivity around stressors; in Bio-Energy Healing I am able to shift energy to area’s needed and in Spiritual Healing I am able to raise an individuals vibration levels to that which will quicken the body’s own healing response and thus resolve.
“Freedom from all that is unresolved” through awareness, understanding and gentle shifts on physical, emotional and spiritual levels evokes the body back into Devine Order and Self-healing. All works towards harmony.
