Multi-dimensional healing

Can you think yourself well?
Fox News
Five years ago, I started working in an integrative medicine practice. My new patients were some of the most health-conscious people I've ever had the privilege to serve.
Dr. Mike Vergara's insight:

It is no secret that the mind, the body, the emotion, and the spirit of an individual all inter-act to define the state of well-being of the person. Because of the inter-connectedness and interdependence of these four dimensions of a human being, one can course through almost any dimension to reach another.

This is most often exhibited on people with chronic physical ailments who oftentimes develop depressive states. Or people who are emotionally stressed acuiring mental disorders. Or spiritually peaceful individals attaining a state of wellness despite the turmoil in their environment.

Can you think yourself well? You betcha!!! =)

Dr. Mike Vergara's insight:

Interesting article of stages of retirment. Key points

 

Today the global silver market represents almost 15 percent of the population in industrialized countries. By the year 2030, it will be about 25 percent and in some of the faster aging countries, they will account for almost 30 percent.

 

Many companies are targeting the global silver market and see it as an opportunity to roll out new products and services for this sector. It is important to keep in mind that the target group aged 50 and above is not homogeneous and, therefore, has different needs and wants depending on their stage of life they are just in.

Dr. Mike Vergara's insight:

It is always a good idea to integrate two working systems - the objective of which is to get the best that both have to offer. Easier said than done, of course. I guess the key in this integration would be the assumption that there is always room for improvement. Imagine the strict, streamlined, no-nonsense approach of the Germans coupled with the loving, respectful, profoundly personal ways of the Filipinos.

 

It seems to me like a brick and mortar affair. Compatible and doable. It has promises of a solid foundation. Let's get this affair going!

 

Watch out, world ... we are coming to get you ... to efficiently feed you, efficiently care for you, and naturally love you! =)
