What does holistic medicine really mean?
When you hear the word holistic, what comes to mind?
Meditation, yoga, herbology, natural or organic food? Body-mind? Body-mind-soul?
What does holistic healing mean to you? In your understanding, what is the result that we hope for in a holistic healing?
Very few people know that it was Jan Christian Smuts who first coined the word “Holism” in 1920 to denote the force behind evolution. He called Holism the evolutionary force that is the source of the creation of new wholes; from the first atom to the most complex living organism. It is Holism that is the energetic force behind all of life and all of existence, so the source of all life and all things is “Holistic.” It is what all of our approaches give us an opportunity to connect with. So, one thing that holistic healing does not do is to restore your life to the way it was.
Holistic healing always involves evolution, a greater “wholeness” in your experience of life, a paradigm shift.
Stepping into a new paradigm
Holistic medicine is not a piecemeal approach to body and mind. It encompasses all the challenges (physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual), by interacting with, and facilitating, the single source of life – the single source of all dimensions. The source of life is not a material phenomenon. Holistic healing is on a subtle, invisible, and immaterial dimension. It is the dimensions of the vital force, the soul, “noumenal”, or organizational principle of the organism: the essence that distinguishes and animates, establishes and maintains the organism as one unique WHOLE
A personal exercise in holistic health
Set aside 5 minutes of quiet time to reflect on your experience or understanding of healing. Recall a time in your life when you experienced a healing of yourself or witnessed it happening to another. It doesn’t have to be a miraculous healing event, but it should be something that clearly illustrated a greater freedom in physical, mental or emotional well being from what was experienced before. Not just change, but an evolution, a growth, a transformation of some kind.
- What new insight or clarity arose in order to allow that healing to happen?
- What is the belief that was seen through or uprooted?
Now, consider what belief or attachment might be holding you back from your next step in your evolution and notice what is happening inside of your body.
What sensations arise and what are your mental or emotional experiences around that attachment?
- What other things, people, or events are evoked with those sensations?
- In which situations do you experience similar sensations?
- Stay with the sensation to allow deeper dimensions to emerge.
Notice that this is not an exercise to ‘change’ your state, or otherwise distract yourself from it, but rather one that allows all the dimensions of your experience to emerge.
This is the basis of the MICH Noumedynamic Method. It enables us to explore what is going on in the body, in the mind, and in the emotions, and allow the complete pattern that runs through the individual’s life, the noumenal soul, to emerge.
The Next Step
Once that unique individualized pattern, permeating all areas and stages of your life is allowed to emerge, it can then be matched to a similar pattern in nature, captured in a homeopathic remedy! The quantum level signal held by the remedy is transmitted to the intelligent, quantum organelles called the mitochondria, found in every cell. This new information allows the mitochondria, responsible for adaptation and evolution, to find ways to break out of the stuck patterns and obstacles preventing you from functioning optimally and healing.
Chronic disease is a struggle with a stuck pattern; a struggle that expresses itself in symptoms. Our method precisely identifies the pattern as well as the specific remedy that will address it. With the struggle over, the symptoms disappear. The result is a “spontaneous healing” that comes from the “inside” of the individual.
