We have forgotten about wellness. We really have.
Traditional Western medicine's attitude towards wellness is built on the assumption that the body and the mind are separate. They are not joined, they are not related in any way, but they are separate. Just as importantly, whatever treatments are created for either body or mind, have to be based on biochemical compounds.
This idea of the body and mind being separate has led to doctors treating the symptoms but overlooking the disease.
But it’s impossible to treat the body without addressing the mind and the spirit.
Unfortunately, in the West, the spiritual component of wellness is hardly mentioned at all.
In fact, people get really antsy and uncomfortable the moment the idea of spirit enters any conversation.
It's like it's completely off-limits to “credible” scientific investigation.
The typical diagnosis for physical ailments leaves out the attitude, mindset as well as emotional configuration of the patient.
It's only been recently that general-practice physicians have factored in lifestyle considerations.
Here’s where my advice for you comes in.
