Paths to Recovery
Plato on Holistic Healing
"The cure of the part should not be attempted without treatment of the whole. No attempt should be made to cure the body without the soul.
Let no one persuade you to cure the head until he has first given you his soul to be cured, for this is the great error of our day, that physicians first separate the soul from the body."
Holistic Medicine considers the whole person - body, mind, spirit, and emotions - in the quest for optimal wellness.
In holistic medicine philosophy, we learn that we can regain balance in life.
The whole person is made up of interdependent parts and if one part is not working properly, all the other parts will be affected. In this way, if we have imbalances (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in our lives, it will negatively affect our overall well-being.
1. I am responsible for my own health and well-being.
2. All people have innate healing powers.
3. The patient is a person, not a disease.
4. Treatment is finding and fixing the cause of the condition, not just alleviating the symptoms.
A variety of treatment techniques are available to help us take responsibility for our own well-being.
We can help others, and we can help ourselves. We can decide to start our own journey by eating nutritious food, or by breaking bad habits... or by learning the art of acupressure and balancing our meridians.
It doesn't really matter, where we start... it matters that we start somewhere...
We just need to take that first step, really doing something for the sake of ourselves.
With this one step, more steps naturally follow. Recovery comes when we give ourselves this chance.
We may hope for a miracle to happen... and it may happen... anything is possible...
We can start the process by actively doing something, discover this power we are connected to, everything is connected to... and make a change, make a decision, make an effort.
So what comes with one step? Lots, lots more!
More steps... more energy, more joy and fun. Aging youthfully, without pharmaceutical pills lined up for breakfast... more happiness.
This is something to go for!
This process can start on any level, and will spread to all levels of our lives and our surroundings.
I hope you find some inspiration on this website...
