Slow Medicine: Hope and Healing for Chronic Illness
Everything is inter-dependent—muscles and nerves, bodies and minds, people and planet – and each connecting thread has a domino effect on the other. To achieve and sustain optimal health, we therefore need perspective that goes beyond the obvious symptoms. We need to become aware of each area of our lives and explore how to optimize our wellness, not only within each of these areas but also through their harmonious integration. The best “quick fix” for our health, you see, is not a quick fix after all; rather, it is Slow Medicine – a methodical, step-by-step process of asking questions that lead to awareness that turns into action that results in optimal health. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt. Ready to begin?
In our fast-paced world, we often look for quick-fix solutions to our health challenges, not realizing that these “solutions” in fact may contribute to our problems. Most health challenges are the result of an imbalance in our bodies and lives, and most quick-fix solutions actually exacerbate these imbalances. If, instead, we take a Slow Medicine approach – identifying the root cause of our health challenges, then creating a thoughtful, step-by-step, and long-term response to it – we effectively bring ourselves back into balance.
