A very important part in the treatment of each patient is a natural holistic process of recovery of the body, together with a mental understanding of the need for maintenance of healthy way of life. Cleaning the body and blood of the effects of drugs, alcohol or smoking is a long process and the proven holistic methods provide a simple painless and natural way of establishing a healthy and psychological state.
The holistic approach to each patient, both individually and collectively, develops an awareness of a healthy lifestyle, leading to the moment when he realises the damage done to himself by taking drugs – and then mentally discards old habits in favour of a new healthy life.
Holistic education is a philosophy of education based on the premise that each person finds identity, meaning, and purpose in life through connections to the community, to the natural world, and to humanitarian values such as compassion and peace. Holistic education aims to call forth from people an intrinsic reverence for life and a passionate love of learning.
Principles of Holistic Medicine by Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine
Holistic medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The practice of holistic medicine integrates conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health. This condition of holistic health is defined as the unlimited and unimpeded free flow of life force energy through body, mind, and spirit.
Holistic medicine encompasses all safe and appropriate modalities of diagnosis and treatment. It includes analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, spiritual and lifestyle elements. Holistic medicine focuses upon patient education and participation in the healing process.
The Principles of Holistic Medical Practice
• Holistic physicians embrace a variety of safe, effective options in diagnosis and treatment, including:
a) education for lifestyle changes and self-care;
b) complementary alternatives;
c) conventional drugs and surgery
• Searching for the underlying causes of disease is preferable to the treatment of symptoms alone.
• Holistic physicians expend as much effort in establishing what kind of patient has a disease as they do in establishing what kind of disease a patient has.
• Prevention is preferable to treatment and is usually more cost-effective. The most cost-effective approach evokes the patient’s own innate healing capabilities.
• Illness is viewed as a manifestation of a dysfunction of the whole person, not as an isolated event.
• A major determinant of healing outcomes is the quality of the relationship established between physician and patient, in which patient autonomy is encouraged.
• The ideal physician-patient relationship considers the needs, desires, awareness and insight of the patient as well as those of the physician.
• Physicians significantly influence patients by their example.
• Illness, pain, and the dying process can be learning opportunities for patients and physicians.
• Holistic physicians encourage patients to evoke the healing power of love, hope, humor and enthusiasm, and to release the toxic consequences of hostility, shame, greed, depression, and prolonged fear, anger, and grief.
• Unconditional love is life’s most powerful medicine. Physicians strive to adopt an attitude of unconditional love for patients, themselves, and other practitioners.
Optimal health is much more than the absence of sickness. It is the conscious pursuit of the highest qualities of the physical, environmental, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of the human experience.
The primary goal of holistic medicine practice by Gaining Proper is “Balance in Life”.
MACROBIOTIC CONSULTATION & THERAPY
A natural holistic approach to recovery and a mental understanding of a healthy life style is a crucial part in every patent’s recovery. Cleaning your body and blood from the effects of drugs, alcohol or cigarettes is a long term process: painless, simple and natural through holistic and tested methods leading to the health of mind and body.
The holistic method aims to raise awareness of every patient, both individually and collectively, about a healthy life style.
Includes discussion regarding healthy diet and lifestyle, and the practice of food selection, preparation, and methods of consumption.
The selection and combination of different foods has a direct impact on our organs, system processes and mental health. Hence, how we choose, prepare and consume foods is directly related to an individual’s health condition.
Besides diet, macrobiotics teaches us how to harmonise our life styles with nature, how to recognise challenges and threats. Macrobiotics does not only help us recognise our mistakes and causes, but also tells us how to overcome them.
It teaches us how to listen to our body and manage it in health and illness.
We discover our inner energy through macrobiotics, natural energy: it tells us how to use it and find it in ourselves.
You make your own blood with every single bite: learn to think what your bite should be like!
It is very important to know that macrobiotics brings about a natural balance in the body metabolism and fosters the immune system. This balance is reached through energy:
• inner and outer positive frequencies (spring water, sun, meditation, positive stimulation, visualisation, chi energy, bio resonance, bioenergy, reidoki, acupuncture, shiatsu, etc.),
• food energy (JIN/JANG or five elements technique in food selection and preparation has a significant influence on the balance).
When the balance is disturbed, macrobiotics may apply many other alternative medicine techniques (homeopathy, ancient Chinese medicine, Ayurveda Indian medicine, quantum medicine, etc.), based on
• a food platform (medical diet, water and oxygen) and/or
• an energy/frequency platform (physics and vibrations producing natural frequencies that exist in nature and inside us).
When talking about an addict’s recovery, macrobiotics aims at cleaning the body fully and completely, regaining vital functions of organs and mentally raising awareness of a healthy life style and nutrition. At the very moment an addict realises how damaging drug taking has been, he/she will mentally reject continuance of old habits and start leading a new and healthy life.
Every patient has his/her own story, hence every therapy is a tailor-made!
Acupuncture promotes the return and maintenance of body energy as well as the removal of energy blockages. Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.
Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India: it involves a system of stretching and positional exercises derived from this discipline to promote good health, fitness, and control of the mind. However, Yoga is more than physical exercise, it has a meditative and spiritual core. Yoga discipline involving controlled breathing, prescribed body positions, and meditation, with the goal of attaining a state of deep spiritual insight and tranquility.
Oriental massage for energy and psychological balance of spirit and body. Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork based on the theoretical framework of traditional Chinese medicine. In the Japanese language, shiatsu means “finger pressure”. Shiatsu techniques include massages with fingers, thumbs, feet and palms; assisted stretching; and joint manipulation and mobilization. To examine a patient, a shiatsu practitioner uses palpation and, sometimes, pulse diagnosis.
Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client’s personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be. Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or internally hidden. Our skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself. You, the client, are the only expert in your entire life who truly knows who you are and what you need. You are the only expert who can recognize what is absolutely best for you. We are simply experts in the coaching process. As your coach, we help you discover what your own personal “best” might be.
Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life.
We help you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your passion for your dreams into action for your life.
We are highly trained as generalists and can coach superbly on any aspect of life. However, we may choose to specialize in one or more of the following areas.
Homeopathy is a natural form of medicine to treat both acute and chronic conditions. The system is based on the idea that the substances that produce symptoms of sickness in healthy people will have a curative effect when given in very dilute quantities to sick people who exhibit those same symptoms. Homeopathic remedies are believed to stimulate the body’s own healing processes. Homeopaths use the term “allopathy,” or “different than disease,” to describe the use of drugs used in conventional medicine to oppose or counteract the symptom being treated.
Homeopathic physicians seek to cure their patients on physical, mental and emotional levels, and each treatment is tailored to a patient’s individual needs. Homeopathy is generally a safe treatment, as it uses medicines in extremely diluted quantities, and there are usually minimal side effects. Its non-toxicity makes it a good choice for the treatment of children.
Homeopathic remedies are effective in treating depression, nervous disorders and migraine headaches. Homeopathy is a good treatment to explore for acute and chronic illnesses, particularly if these are found in the early stages and where there is not severe damage.
Practitioners believe that the electromagnetic energy of the original substance is retained in the dilution, but toxic side effects of the remedy are not. It is this electrochemical “message” that stimulates the body to heal itself.
Homeopathic practitioners believe that illness is specific to an individual. In other words, two people with severe headaches may not receive the same remedy. The practitioner asks the patient questions about lifestyle, dietary habits, and personality traits, as well as specific questions about the nature of the headache and when it occurs. This information gathering is called profiling or case-taking.
It is essential that a patient is taken out of the environment that led to/caused the addiction. Out-of-town or even out-of-country options for drug rehab significantly increases possibilities of recovery. The first thing that comes to an addicted mind, straight after coming home, is how to get money, where to buy a dope and where to use it. An addict is in a state of a constant severe narcotic hunger and he is obstinately searching for the ways to still it.
Moving Toward gives the possibility to change the habits related to their addictions in order to become contributing members of society and to switch his/her mind off drug desire and transfer him/her into a life free from addiction.
Patients learn how to communicate effectively, how to avoid provocative situations and contacts with people who are still on drugs, how to overcome their drug related memories and drug behaviour from the past, how to restore moral, integrity and responsibility, as well as how to rebuild social skills.
During the Moving Toward Treatment, the patient is all the time under Psychological therapy, group therapy and organized family therapy. Family therapy includes discussing the problems of addiction with the patient, as well as with his/her family members to ensure that the former addict has a supportive environment, in which he is going to recover from addiction.
The goal of Moving Toward therapy in terms of psychological treatment of drug addiction is to teach the person to recognize situations in which he/she is most likely to use drugs, to avoid these circumstances if and when possible, and how to cope with other problems and behaviours, which may lead to substance abuse.
Each type of treatment is specifically tailored to individual needs. It depends on what the patient wants level/ degree of motivation for a sober/drug free life, which physical and psychological problems have to be solved. Depression, feelings of anxiety, mood swings, sleep disorders are common signs of psychological drug withdrawal, which this treatment can help with. The patient can also, according to his/her interests take part in various training such as Holistic Education (macrobiotic, yoga..) and Professional Education (architecture, medicine, law, acting, etc..), which helps socialization and setting the focus on a healthy life and a successful long term recovery.
There is no justifiable reason for postponing treatment if opiate addiction of any kind is present. Every day and every dose may be a potential overdose, and the threat and damage to relationships and long-term physical and mental health is continuous as long as addiction is a driving force.
There is no right or wrong time to fight back against a drugs addiction.
