Healing requires sustained effort and commitment on the part of the person seeking healing. While some people gain to manage their recovery using self-help systems and other tactics prescribed by their health care professionals, most healers prefer a holistic approach that combines psychological, physical, and spiritual exercises with specific educational materials to teach the individual how to expand and deepen their healing process.

Health encompasses the whole person, including physical well-being, mental health, and social or spiritual well-being. A holistic approach emphasizes the interconnection between these aspects. The goal may be to improve one’s overall well-being, fitness, or general quality of life. This show explores some of the ways we can improve our overall health as well as providing some tips and tricks for tracking our progress toward a healthy life.

As a mind/body practitioner here’s some practical tips that helps my patients with their healing process:

  • To improve your psychological health:

Track gratitude and achievement with a journal: Include 3 things you were grateful for and 3 things you were able to accomplish each day.

  • To improve your physical health:

Stay active: Being active will help you avoid unwanted weight gain, stay in good shape, and lower your risk of numerous health issues, including cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

  • To improve your spiritual health:

Meditate: Meditating for as little as five minutes can help reduce stress, depression and anxiety and increase your mindfulness.

The whole purpose of life is to adjust to the limitations that life places on us. Crucially, we learn how to live with less pain and more ease. We come to realize that growth is possible – that the flow of experience is greater than the in-built limitations of our mind or body. The beauty of this approach is that it can be embraced by anyone, at any time. It is the exact opposite of the narrow, self-absorbed approach to life that so many people take part in: modern lifestyles tend to focus on growth in a narrowly self-focused way that protects the most vulnerable parts of our bodies from harm while preventing us from growing spiritually.
