I’m giving you a heads-up on this one so you can block your calendars.
From Nov. 21-30, 2013, we can listen to several experts on Integrative Medicine speak about new approaches to healing that combine Western or conventional medicine as we know it these days with other modalities that focus on holistic wellness rather than just treating symptoms of diseases. I plan to make time to listen to as many of these experts as possible because I believe even more than ever now that everything we take into our bodies affect us. Even stress which can come in many forms and is thrown upon us in different situations, wreaks havoc inside the body and produces harmful free radicals that eventually can lead to disease.
Here is an excerpt explaining the concept of Integrative Medicine as taken from the Integrative Medicine Online World Summit website:
“What is Integrative Medicine and META-Health and how can it help me?
Integrative Medicine is an approach to treatment and care that integrates conventional medicine with a broader understanding of illness, healing and wellness and looks at all available methods that may be a value in treating disease and illness.
It takes into account the whole person and all aspects of lifestyle and restores the focus of medicine on health and healing and away from disease symptom management. It’s a practical strategy that puts the patient at the center of care and addresses the full range of mind, body, spirit and environmental influences that affect a person’s health.
Integrative Medicine treats both the patients immediate and long-term needs enhancing the ability of patients to not only get well but more importantly stay well.
META-Health is the Art and Science of Self-healing and a branch within the field of integrative medicine. It is revolutionizing holistic diagnosis and therapy by using your body’s healing intelligence and awareness of specific stress triggers, emotions and beliefs that are affecting your organ symptoms. META-Health is using the Organ-Stress-Emotion-Belief-Social Connection and the major 9 Points and Phases of Healing to remove blockages and allow self-healing to happen.”
30 world-renowned experts in Integrative Medicine will be speaking in this summit. Here is a screenshot I got from the same website of the Integrative Medicine Online World Summit showing some of your possible questions that may be covered.
Looks exciting and informative! I can’t wait. By the way, this entire summit is FREE so there is no reason for you not to sign up now and listen to what they have to say. Whenever something goes wrong in our bodies, we should stop just taking medicines to remove the symptoms. We must learn how to treat it at the source of the problem. As my yoga teacher always told us – The body has an innate ability to heal itself.
