Healing from within
To heal we need to listen with our whole being. The physician or therapist needs to listen to the patient so that the patient can begin to listen to his or her own truth. While not always comfortable, it is essential that the person suffering truly engages in their process of healing – healing from within. It is empowering to discover and cultivate our ability to connect with our own being and our environment in an authentic and integrated way – even if the process does not lead to restoration of full health or fails to avert imminent death.
Disease easily arises, and healing is easily compromised when we have become separated or even alienated from ourselves. Whether this be the result of a prolonged and subtle process or a sudden traumatic experience, there is indisputable evidence that the lack or loss of self-awareness and body-mind-communication affects our immune system, and thus our power to heal, in numerous and complex ways.
Wounds can be stitched up, bones set, organs replaced, micro-organisms expelled, diets changed, medication for metabolic imbalances corrected, or pain relieved – but true healing can only happen from within.
This is old knowledge often forgotten in modern societies, and sadly ridiculed and condemned as unscientific and dangerous quackery by certain factions of the medical establishment, and those happy to be led into editing skirmishes and battles on the pages of the Free Encyclopedia under the convenient cover of anonymity, thus being absolved from what they ask of others – academic, scientific and medical credibility.
Notwithstanding such unfounded scepticism, scientific research and clinical medicine keeps moving towards a significant paradigm shift. The re-configured field of Bio Medicine for example is finding ever more evidence for the benefits of holistic approaches to healing.
The therapies I offer are holistic in that sense and well placed to help induce, support and guide healing, whatever the issue and whatever the diagnosis or the prognosis.
