Episode 23:20 Want To REALLY Get Healthy? Adopt A Vitalistic Approach To Health

Everyone wants to be healthier.

The problem is most people don’t know HOW.

That is, most people don’t know what they need to do in order to live a more vibrant and healthier life.

Part of the problem is that we live in a society where the health care system follows a “mechanistic” approach… an approach that looks at the human body as a “machine” made up of “parts.”

If something goes wrong with one of the “parts” you are told to visit a medical specialist who will treat it.

While this “mechanistic” approach certainly has some value, it leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to helping people overcome chronic health conditions such as headaches, neck and back pain, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, skin diseases and hormonal imbalances.

Those conditions - conditions that account for the overwhelming majority of doctor visits - are better served by a “Vitalistic” approach to health.

What’s a Vitalistic approach to health?

It’s an approach that looks at the body as MORE than just the sum of its parts.

That is, instead of viewing the various organs, glands and systems of the body as isolated parts, a Vitalistic approach views them all as being part of a team.

A symphony.

Unlike a Mechanistic approach, a Vitalistic approach to health believes that what happens to one organ, gland or system will also have an affect on other organs, glands and systems throughout the body.

In addition, a Vitalistic approach to health believes that there is a life-force to the human body… a form of energy that WANTS to help us heal and be healthy.

On this episode we talk about this Vitalistic approach to health and how adopting it for yourself can help you get to the ROOT cause of your health issues.
