Holistic is What?

Holistic is what? Have we forgotten? Is it really that important?
ho·lis·tic
adjective
PHILOSOPHY
adjective: holistic
  • characterized by comprehension of the parts of something as intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole.
    • MEDICINE
      characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the physical symptoms of a disease.

    *******************************************

    If we look way back….before society became one of an instant gratification need…..we’ll see that the treatment of illness & disease, whether physical, spiritual or mental was treated as a whole. It was understood that one needed to find the root cause and work on that first. In today’s treatment it has all been separated. Now we have physicians for the body, psychiatrists for the mind and spiritual counselors for the spirit. People want a quick fix and they expect it to be done for them. Society as a whole has given up the responsibility of their own well being to others…many (to be fair…not all) of whom are just worried about filling their bank accounts. Is this working? We see more and more disease and more repeated issues…or the treatment of one thing leads to other issues which now need attention. The commercials for all these new medications say a lot when they refer to all the “possible” side effects.

    “The greatest mistake physicians make is that they attempt to cure the body without attempting to cure the mind; yet the mind and the body are one and should not be treated separately!” ~ Plato

    Even so many years ago they understood that if you didn’t heal at the root of the issue then it would not be fully healed and would only resurface. Searching for the root cause and working on healing it is a cooperative & joint effort between the patient & the guide. I refer to the professional treating the patient as a guide because when it comes down to it…they are the one guiding the patient to find their own answers and to guiding them to do the work they need to do. It used to be one person that could work with the person in need of healing….a shaman, medicine woman/man, village elder, etc. They would work with the patient to find the root cause first and it would take time. Then the work on healing would start and the patient played a part in this….it wasn’t easy & it wasn’t instant…but once healed it lasted.

    Temporary healing isn’t the answer. Yes….there are times when immediate help is needed and medications are necessary but we can’t expect the body to completely heal if the mind & spirit isn’t also healed and visa versa. The easiest example to give is the health issues caused by stress. A man has heart disease due to stress and ends up with high blood pressure or worse yet needs heart surgery. The physical issue is taken care of in the moment but if the issue causing the stress isn’t dealt with. If the patient ISN’T taught to deal with the stress in a better way it will continue to be an issue for them and they could be in a worse situation later. If they ARE taught to understand the root cause and how to deal with it on a daily basis….to do the work themselves via meditation or relaxation techniques, etc….they will then treat the root cause and find their physical health improving. Stress is one of the biggest root causes of many illness & disease but there are many other things that could be at the root. Sometimes it could even be childhood issues that were never dealt with and have been held in festering and then developing into physical issues.

    Let’s get back to holistic and look at the whole picture. Long term healing is a much better option than quick fixes needed to be repeated over and over and causing even more issues that then need healing too. Let’s get off the hamster wheel and actual make progress! Take responsibility for your own wellbeing back! We still need the physicians and other professionals but don’t give them sole ownership of your health!

Survivor or Just Surviving?

survivor

As humans, we all have that innate instinct to survive. There is a difference, however, to being a survivor or just surviving…or barely surviving as I hear so many say. 

When we hit bottom, or even just a low point, the survivor instinct will kick in but what you do with that is a choice. The survivor will choose to not only fight but also to see it as a lesson to learn, a way to grow, a challenge, an opportunity for better and they will smile through it. They will have gratitude for what good is still around them and they will find that good as scarce as it may be! They will also know without a shadow of a doubt that this is only temporary.

Those that choose to just survive are the ones that scrape by…barely…and see each day as a burden and they are miserable and stay in the mindset that nothing will change and they are doomed to struggle over and over. They tell themselves constantly “I can’t do this anymore, I can’t make it, I’ll never survive this” and yet they do and nothing changes. They usually fail to see the blessings that are still there around them. 

So you have a choice to be a survivor or to just survive. If just surviving works for you then stick with it….if not then it’s never too late to start becoming a survivor! Life has many battles….learn & grow or be stagnant….

I am a survivor, I am a warrior
