"The difference between treating and healing is that in the former, the context remains the same, whereas in the latter, the clinical response is elicited by a change of context so as to bring about an absolute removal of the basis of the condition rather than mere recovery of its symptoms. It is one thing to prescribe an anti-hypertensive medication for high blood pressure, it is quite another to expand the persons context of life to the degree that he stops being angry, hostile and repressive."
- Dr David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D.
A Global Health Crisis
In a 21st century era where science, medicine and technology are growing faster than the public can begin keep up with, it logical to think that the rate of which disease is present ought to have begun to decline.
Rates of disease and health issues like heart disease, sickness, obesity, cancer and psychological disorders seem to continually be on the rise across the population – in fact statistically speaking, an estimated 96% of the worlds population currently live with some form of acute or long term disease.
This is arguably down to many factors, which vary from person to person. However, above all else I believe our biggest issue lies in the approach to treatment which we facilitate to the unwell.
What About Medicine?
Not that many people acknowledge the fact that allopathic medicine isn’t the only approach out there; let alone likely even the best one. It’s simply just the most funded, the most economically efficient and easiest to sell – and therefore profit from.
Allopathic medicine means to approach the issue from a focus on symptoms, not on the healing the disease itself; “by using scientifically-researched treatments such as pharmaceutical medication, surgery and/or psychological therapy to treat or suppress the symptoms of an illness or disease.”
The benefits of this are that it is fast-acting and provides quick relief; allowing patients to return to their lives, to return to work or to a place of improved functionality in their lives. The drawbacks to this are that the on one side, the initial cause of ill-health (the problem) is oftentimes not formally addressed, causing many illnesses and diseases to remain or possibly return at a later date. Furthermore, the long-term effects (or side effects) of proposed treatments are often disregarded and are to be an accepted side-effect.
The approach we take here at The Vitality Guru is that of a holistic approach. A holistic approach is to address issues at their core through direct change on a personal and/or lifestyle levels such as behaviour, nutrition/consumption, mindful practice, movement and personal development to help prevent disease and bring the body into a natural state of well-being once again.
Again, we do not offer quick, short-term fixes. Taking a holistic approach is about finding ways to bring a long-term balance of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being to oneself and to allow yourself to live in a place of happiness, health and well-being; vitality. A place the body is capable of overcoming ailments with ease.
If you want quick, short-term relief then your best bet is to speak to your GP / Doctor.
If you want semi-quick, medium-term results at the expense of your earnings then visit a private doctor within a specified field.
If you want consistent, dedicated co-operation and lasting, life-long results then you come to us.
