is the skill set and experience of
living a human life.
Modern medicine defines health as the absence of disease. As healthcare reform evolves in the US, we are beginning to understand that health is a social and community responsibility and includes much more than the absence or presence of disease.
Human life has become a state of constant activity, and we have lost how to just be. This has led to a disintegration of body, mind, and spirit rendering many of us in a waxing and waning state of perpetual dis-ease. Recognizing that our state of health is so much more than access to healthcare, many people are struggling to find a path to true health and living for what matters most.
Ancient medical practices defined health in terms of vitality. Recognizing that we are a multidimensional being, these practices served to maintain integration as the foundation of vitality. Employing these age-old traditions with the innovation of modern medicine, healers are now able to help others not only recover from and prevent disease, but promote the vitality well known to our ancestors.
