Our goal of the highest ideal of cure is achievable in most cases.
By understanding the factors causing disease and suffering, and knowing well, holistic treatment modalities, it is possible to see a clear path to optimal wellness. One point I will add here is my philosophical view. That is, human life here is an evolving work in process bringing qualities of peace, harmony, human unity, tolerance, wisdom, beauty, into our daily mundane lives. It is a process of our earthly lives dynamically reflecting something of more divine qualities. Human healthcare is more complex than car mechanics. The phenomena of life and health are multileveled. Holistic healthcare looks at the causes of disease and suffering as being multifaceted.
One constant theme is that holistic treatments are highly individualized to the patient.
In some cases a sequence of natural treatments, delivered with diamond accuracy, is needed. Take for example, an older adult patient suffering from life long insomnia, with constipation, heartburn, fatigue, arthritis in the shoulders, and mental dullness. Furthermore the patient is harboring a lifelong modus operandii of limitations on mental, emotional and physical levels, related to his mother’s genetic body-mind constitutional state coupled with prenatal trauma due to stressful life situations during pregnancy.
Accurate classical constitutional homeopathic treatment will clear away prenatal trauma while lessening genetic constitutional tendencies to limitation. Many symptoms, if not all, will be dissolved, or greatly reduced in intensity as the patient self heals. With this excellent outcome, the patient still has aged internal organs. The aging process has been accelerated by years of living in imbalance. Daoism in Chinese medicine emphasizes physical longevity. Here the inclusion of individualized Chinese herbal medical tonics to rebuild the internal organs comes in as a secondary stage in the treatment. This provides an even higher level of well-being.
At times a synthesis of natural treatment approaches will work best.
For example a patient, according to Chinese internal organ medical diagnosis has a deficiency in an internal organ affecting normal circulation causing nerve pains, neuropathy, in the extremities. The latest generation of laboratory testing provides accurate indications that the same internal organ is not producing a particular amino acid, leading to poor circulation and neuropathy. Therefore the patient may then receive a synthesis of Chinese herbal medicine, Acupuncture and Clinical nutrition. The deficient internal organ is tonified with Chinese herbal medicine, Acupuncture, and the deficient amino acid is provided as a nutritional supplement to lead to a resolution of the condition.
Some treatments need to stand alone in their powerful message to stimulate the patient to self heal. More is not necessarily better. The highest ideal of cure is to do no harm. Even with natural therapies awareness is needed to provide just what the individual patient needs and not more. This approach simplifies, and produces clarity in otherwise chaotic arrays of symptoms and sufferings.
