help their clients with different treatments designed to kick-start the
body's healing process. Clients are also educated on how to continue
the healing process after each session or series of sessions.
Out of a 100% total:
Traditional Western medical care only produces 10% of a patient's total
health outcome according to Janet Torpy, M.D., in a 2002 article of the
Journal of the American Medical Association. That includes check-ups,
lab work, radiation/chemo-therapy, surgery, pharmaceuticals, etc. The
other 90% of a patient's health is made up of factors such as
lifestyle, stress, environment and genetics. This 90% is in the direct
control of the patient—YOU!
health care, called Complementary Alternative Medicine by Western
health care providers, operates within this 90% bracket. These
therapies include massage therapy, reflexology, reiki, chiropractic,
exercise, physical therapy, nutrition consultation, etc. Modification
of a client's environment, stress level and lifestyle can bring about
dramatic change when it comes to improved health and quality of life.
There have even been theories put forth that clients receiving
continuing therapy treatments affect the body at the genetic
level—allowing cells to reproduce and grow normally, even to the point
of removing abnormal cells. Several recent Nobel Prize winners have
been studying the cell and how it works.
Receiving regular holistic health
sessions, education and regular check-ups with your health care
provider will improve your chances of having a 100% total healthy life!
