Holistic Health Philosophy Over the years as I have attended many workshops, seminars, classes and conferences on health I have found that many in the medical profession (Medical Doctors, Osteopaths, Nurses, etc.) are very frustrated. Most of them went into medicine with an altruistic spirit of really wanting to help people heal, but gradually began to realize that between the bureaucracy of the system and the limited tools they had to offer their patients which are primarily drugs and surgery they felt stuck in their careers. They told me that very little was taught to them about natural ways of healing in medical school. Interestingly, we were both learning new things for similar reasons.Their hope in learning new and natural forms of healing was so that they could gradually incorporate some of these natural methods into their medical practice in hopes that their patients could experience quicker, better and more long lasting healing. At the same time, they could experience a renewed sense of personal fulfillment and purpose in life that originally brought them into the healing arts.From Quantum Physics we learn the notion that “What is known to the part is known to the whole and what is known to the whole is known to the part.” In essence, everything in life is connected to everything else and there are many things in life that can cause our goal of ‘well-being’ to get off kilter.Our emotional life can affect our physical life and vice-versa. Our physical life can affect our mental life and vice-versa. Our mental life can affect our spiritual life and vice-versa. Everything is connected to everything else. Hence the term “Holistic” and why we have a section coined “Well Being.”Chronic Cases versus Acute CasesMost MDs have told me that somewhere around 7 to 9 cases out of 10 people that they see day in and day out are chronic issues mostly due to dietary, exercise, sleep and other lifestyle choices. Smaller percentages are acute issues such as broken bones, emergency appendectomy, heart attack, etc.Another complaint I heard was about pharmaceutical drugs. With all of the ‘demand-push’ forms of advertising for pharmaceutical drugs on TV, I’ve been told by medical doctors that many patients come in with some kind of ailment and expect the doctor to prescribe them a pill to make their symptoms go away but sometimes are less inclined to change their lifestyle habits that may have contributed to their symptoms.It is not hard to understand why many in the health care industry are frustrated.Over time, realizing both the benefits and limitations of the medical model, the American public has sought out alternative forms of healing besides drugs and surgery that deal with the chronic issues of health while realizing that sometimes drugs and surgery are needed for certain acute situations.Our hope for you in this section is to introduce you to some forms of alternative healing that may help you or your loved ones with either chronic and/or acute health issues.Books to ReadAlong your journey here are some books you may find of interest to read:“Vibrational Medicine” by Richard Gerber, MD“A Practical Guide to Vibrational Medicine” by Richard Gerber, MD“Confessions of an Rx Drug Pusher” by Gwen Olsen“Death by Medicine” by Gary Null, Ph.D., Martin Feldman,MD, Debra Rasio, MD, & Carolyn Dean, MD,ND“The Biology of Belief” by Bruce Lipton, Ph.D.“The Cancer Cure That Worked – 50 Years of Suppression” by Barry Lynes“The Language of God” by Francis S.
