The traditional medical paradigm that emphasizes the use of prescription medicine and medical treatment has not only failed to improve the health of Americans, but also led to the decline in the overall well-being of Americans.
The National Institute of Health in Washington has verified in many of their research reports that meditation, psychoneuroimmunology, hypnosis, pranayam and body oriented therapies help heal and restore immune systems, emotional disorders, nervous system imbalances and circulatory blockages. In my 45 years involved with alternative and complementary medicine. I have helped thousands of people change their lives without medications by dealing with the conscious and unconscious mental, emotional, spiritual blockages and imbalances in their system. I have watched clients overcome their heart disease, spontaneously heal their cancer, reverse their depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD and insomnia becoming medication free for the first time in 25 years. I have helped clients lower their blood pressure and end their needs for daily medications. I have helped many heal colitis, fibromyalgia, immune system weaknesses and infertility. Anger,feelings of failure, inability to maintain healthy relationships or find a meaningful career have all improved greatly when using the knowledge and techniques that alternative and complementary medicine utilizes.
I have had many opportunities to work with people who after many years under the care of physicians become medication free for the first time. I recall one woman who had gone through multiple suicide attempts while on her cocktails of medications (a side effect of these drugs) and believed she was destined to be on them for life. Yet with determination to find another way she convinced her prescribing doctor to supervise her medication withdrawal while she undertook an intensive therapy and training program which I supervised. In less than four months later she has been medication free for over a month, is no loner depressed or overwhelmed, is working full time and embracing life with joy. She knows there lots more personal work to do but she's excited about doing it as she can feel again (not feeling was another side effect of her medications) and see her mind and life in a new way.That was 8 years ago and she has continued to blossome ever since learning and continuing to apply the 7 Keys principles and tools.
In "America's Healthcare System A Leading Cause of DeathinThe Journal of the American Medical Associaton an artice By: Barbara Starfield, M.D. (2000) andsSummary by Kah Ying Choo she shared
This Journal of the American Medical Association article illuminates the failure of the U.S. medical system in providing decent medical care for Americans.
In spite of the rising health care costs that provide the illusion of improving health care, the American people do not enjoy good health, compared with their counterparts in the industrialized nations. Among thirteen countries including Japan, Sweden, France and Canada, the U.S. was ranked 12th, based on the measurement of 16 health indicators such as life expectancy, low-birth-weight averages and infant mortality. In another comparison reported by the World Health Organization that used a different set of health indicators, the U.S. also fared poorly with a ranking of 15 among 25 industrialized nations.
The traditional medical paradigm that emphasizes the use of prescription medicine and medical treatment has not only failed to improve the health of Americans, but also led to the decline in the overall well-being of Americans. Starfield’s (2000) comparison of the medical systems of Japan and the U.S. captures the fundamental differences in the treatment approach. Unlike the U.S., Japan has the healthiest population among the industrialized nations. Instead of relying on sophisticated technology and professional personnel for medical treatment as in the U.S., Japan uses its technology solely for diagnostic purposes. Furthermore, in Japan, family members, rather than hospital staff, are involved in caring for the patients.
The success of the Japanese medical system testifies to the dire need for Americans to alter their philosophical approach towards health and treatment. In the blind reliance on drugs, surgery, technology and medical establishments, the American medical system has inflicted more harm than good on the U.S. population. Starfield’s (2000) article is invaluable in unveiling the catastrophic effects of the medical treatments provided to the American people. In order to improve the medical system, American policymakers and the medical establishment need to adopt a comprehensive approach and critically examine the failure of the richest country in the world to provide decent health care for its people. The reason that they have difficulty doing that is explained on the following page.
Starfield, B. (2000, July 26). Is US health really the best in the world? Journal of the American Medical Association, 284(4), 483-485.
People value something because they consider it important to their well-being and survival. Most often there is nothing you will spare to ensure that their body is healthy and fit. Nobody likes pain or sickness. Whether that means the flu, feeling depressed heart disease or cancer it is the natural inclination of every human being to seek to avoid the pain and suffering that illness brings when it threatens your survival. Most try and do the best that they can to feel the pleasure and strength of being healthy and confident they will survive.
The 7 Keys program is no different; it is about how someone wants to live in this world based on the values they hold for your spiritual, mental, emotional and physical well-being. The FICAM training program takes one beyond personal healing and growth to learning to help others. This is not for the dilettante who dabbles in this pursuit and doesn’t really care if they are spiritually empty, mentally unmotivated, emotionally dissatisfied or physically lethargic. Individuals who are not involved in any wellness path may instead seek worldly pleasures in obtaining greater wealth, fame and endless partying. As many believe the nature of life is suffering they believe they should do anything possible to get a momentary buzz, regardless of the long term health implications.
Then there are those who love to talk the talk and may even become obsessed with working out, doing yoga, Pilates, body building or overly stimulating themselves intellectually by obsessive reading. Some always attend lectures or become workshop groupies and don’t mind being on anti-depressants; ADHD medications or taking sleeping pills to get by. Outwardly they seem to be seeking transformation but inwardly they use their busyness to avoid looking within to tear down the walls which have closed them off from their inner light. Of course, there are many who prefer to spend all their energy finding that one special relationship as their means for obtaining what they feel will bring them happiness and peace.
As the above patterns are considered one may be aware how most humans have made these choices to follow one or more of these paths at one time or another in our lives. This is the human experience, a process of learning. It is not until we realize we are so out of balance and in denial of our Authentic Truth, that we demand another way. And it is to these individuals the 7 Keys appeals to, the ready and willing to demand another way to access their deep unconscious issues and stop using wrongly directly self discipline seeking false goals. Through the 7 Keys students become willing to confront their defense mechanisms which have hidden their deeper issues to now become willing to embrace them and help others embrace them.
As Karl Jung said, “Enlightenment is not about embracing the light it is about embracing our darkness and bringing it to the light”. Wellness is not a path you go on to find the truth you’ve been looking for and become the light of love, truth and peace. True wellness, is really the essence of healing as to heal is to become whole again. Wellness is the act of removing the interference, blockage and ignorance that blocks a person from experiencing the innate healing power of the body-mind buried beneath it, at its’ core essence. The 7 Keys helps students overcome the conditioning of their life as they have forgotten who they are and now face, embrace and replace all the barriers which have been embedded in each level of their mental, emotional, physical and spiritual consciousness to flourish and achieve optimal wellness!
