Health can be defined as the expansion of consciousness (knowledge) and the intensification
of consciousness (wisdom).
2. Conventional allopathic medicine
is limited it is most effective with acute crisis medicine
while not being very effective for chronic disease, our major problem today.
3. Conventional medicine is based on a disease model. A new model must
include a wellness model the Integral Health Model is the most inclusive
model to date.
4. Underlying both conventional and wellness models
are a basic set of fundamental worldviews (assumptions). Integral Health examines
these assumptions and explores the fundamental meaning of medicine.
5. Integral Health explores ways to help reshape basic assumptions (worldview)
that havent been done before. How you define 'Health' will determine the
model you select.
6. Integral Health delivery will be geared to
anyone on the Internet so it can affect the widest possible number of people in
the shortest amount of time.
7. EM is about our awareness
of the non-local nature of our mind that it is infinite, indestructible and immortal.
This is the essence of Integral Health.
8. Integral Health
encourages approaches that emphasize the responsibility of the individual for
his or her own health through education and self-care rather than treatment and
9. Integral Health recognizes that the
crisis in health care (and other institutions) today is also an opportunity to
bring about profound personal and social transformation.
Integral Health includes an interior (subjective) and exterior (objective) approach
and looks at the individual (I) and the collective (we).
Integral Health is the process through which we humans achieve well-being by the
ordering of consciousness. Anamnesis or remembering is central
to this and includes the integration of our species and individual psycho-historical
12. Integral Health is not a dogma one
accepts on mere faith but because we are conscious beings we can discover and
experience this wholeness (health) for ourselves.
We help create those healing environments necessary to meet the archetypal
health needs of the developing individual by drawing on the best of the scientific,
artistic, and spiritual traditions. Knowledge and experience shift awareness.
14. We believe that the new interactive multimedia
telecomputer and developing information highways will become the major medium
for enabling this shift in awareness.
Our health professionals provide the context and a significant part of the content
for Integral Health. We model a learning organization and will provide
other health professionals and interested clients the Integral Health Model.
16. We are developing an Integral Health Database for as Targowski
has noted, without an enterprise-wide information management system
there is no clear mechanism, from a holistic business perspective, to transform
data into information and knowledge that impact business.
The public has lost the sense of chronology once fundamental to Western Education.
The right approach is more important than all the details. With the death of the
comparative method after Word War II, American universities embarked on a program
of specialization which all but obliterated those patterns which connect.
18. Integral Health believes that select hormones, nutraceuticals,
antioxidants, cosmeceuticals and cell therapy can help you live better longer.
19. We will develop certain strategic alliances with health
care, education, business and Medi-Spas. Only by this mechanism can a significant
model be created that can bring about the change we so urgently need.
20. Integral Health believes that medical research over the
past two decades can provide significant anti-aging effects if properly understood
and implemented by the client.
21. Integral Health
will only be recognized when a significant number of health practitioners embrace
an alternative model that can replace the existing one.
Integral Health puts its values first and economics second.
23. Integral Health provides individuals for the first time
the tools to take control of their own health and well-being.
Integral Health makes possible a new dialogue and can build a new
sense of hope and community.
25. Integral Health believes
that the right approach to health care is more important than all
the specialties and technology.
26. Integral Health
uses the spiral as the symbol of transformation that is, for
the inner process of growth.
27. We are building a
vision of what health care can be in the 21st century.
Integral Health is focused on the demand rather than the supply side of health
29. The Integral Health Model is a description
of the future we want to create. It invites us to rethink and redesign our existing
models, procedures, and systems.
30. Integral Health
recognizes that the new model of health must place consciousness in
the central role.
31. The metaphor of a living
organism replaces the machine model of conventional medicine
in Integral Health.
32. Integral Health recognizes
how ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.
Health sees worldview as being essential for well being.
Integral Health embraces cultural pluralism. (Diversity.)
Integral Health seeks to put death back into society as a normal process of living.
36. Integral Health helps to uncover the individuals authentic
37. Integral Health Guides help individuals
become co-creators of their own health.
health sees health care moving out of hospitals and doctors offices into
Medi-Spas, the work site and home. The consumer is in the drivers seat.
39. Integral Health recognizes that most health care reform
falls short today, because it tends to extend the current system, rather than
create genuine change.
40. We believe that this is
the time to make the future of medicine because everything is in flux.
41. Integral Health believes that self-mastery and leadership
is not exceptional but the natural expression of the fully functional integral
42. Integral Health is based on a learning
model focused on creating culture, i.e., in creating shared
meaning. The greater the meaning, the greater the consciousness.
43. Integral Health strives for a dialogue where
meaning is flowing through and amongst people. Without dialogue, collective
learning will not occur.
44. Integral Health recognizes
that alternative medical techniques have become increasingly accepted
and have become mainstream.
45. Integral Health recognizes
that as more and more people develop the ability to acquire data beyond what our
five senses provide, the distinction between our personal ego, self, and transcendental
Over-Self is becoming more and more recognized.
Integral Health recognizes that our western civilization is dangerously over differentiated
and under integrated.
47. Integral Health recognizes
that all health models are by nature incomplete, i.e., ideas and worldviews must
48. Integral Health recognizes that
matter and mind interpenetrate each other.
Health includes a MetaAnalysis i.e. an in depth evaluation of all four quadrants
(subjective, intersubjective, objective, interobjective).
For business people substituting the word health for growth in reference
to their organization has given them the Ah Ha of the paradigm shift in the new
51. Integral Health recognizes
that learning needs clear and immediate feedback; hence, the importance of rechecking
the Biomarkers on your longevity program.

thoughts that can lead to new, more collective, productive actions.

Health Advisors in the world on its team.

58. Integral Health seeks to
motivate and encourage individuals to engage not only in new thinking but in news
59. Integral Health recognizes that the
imagination is the seat of the emotions the bridge between the conscious
and unconscious. Integral Health seeks metaphors to nourish the imagination
and hence alter beliefs and behavior.
Health recognizes that most people find change difficult. Thus, small incremental
(baby steps) are required to meet your health goals.
Integral Health recognizes that human behavior, and life outcomes change significantly
when worldview changes.
62. To make sense of medicine
in the 21st century, the center of health care must include a theory of consciousness.
Furthermore, an analysis of consciousness has no instrument other than the concrete
consciousness of the analyst. Thus, any health professional, it seems, must engage
in an exploration of his or her own consciousness first in order to be effective.
63. Integral Health is committed to reaching the consciousness
of those men and women who are leaders and change agents in health care.
Integral Health recognizes that a majority of patients seeking physical relief
from a doctor have the physical symptoms as a result of psychological distress.
65. Integral Health recognizes that boosting a persons
sense of control and optimism improves health outcomes and decreases health care
66. Integral Health recognizes that the true
primary care provider is the individual themself.
Integral Health recognizes that you cannot heal the body or mind without healing
the life first health exists in a context, and it is the context (worldview)
that is ailing.
68. Integral Health knows that all
suffering is bearable if it is seen as part of a story.
Integral Health knows that throughout history there have been profound shifts
in worldview and that we are currently in the midst of the emergence of a new
worldview. This has important implications for the new health model.
Integral Health recognizes that health providers have been conspicuously absent
in planning and implementing health change. Confusion and upset abound.
71. Integral Health will focus on the forces that drive the
demand for care -- the attitudes and beliefs (worldviews) of providers and patients.
72. Integral Health is sensitive to the psychological interaction
and communication style between health providers and patients, which can have
important outcomes the language of healing.
Integral Health recognizes that the key to medical care reform will not lie with
providers but primarily be the result of the lifestyle and behavior changes of
74. Integral Health realizes that good
health is completely unrelated to medical care utilization.
Integral Health realizes that disease prevention may not just depend on the elimination
of biomedical risk factors but more on the mind-body interaction of individuals.
76. Integral Health realizes that medical outcomes dont
depend on the physician or health professional but on the actions of individuals.
77. Integral Health believes that business should assume a
leadership role in the new health model for its directly involved in paying
the health bill and has an ongoing intimate relationship with a large portion
of the population.
78. Integral Health embraces many
alternative medical systems, for example Homeopathy in a meta-analysis
of 107 controlled clinical studies using homeopathy, 81 suggest that Rx was effective
79. Integral Health believes that it has
been the lack of a proper learning environment that blocks the revolution
promised by TQM programs. All this changes with the Net.
Integral Health asks, Is the integral human capable of metanormal capacities?
We need places to support the development of these metanormal
capacities. Hence, our interest in Medi-Spas.
Integral Health believes that understanding the Universe Story and then integrating
the various structures of consciousness helps facilitate the integral human by
transforming a persons worldview.
Health recognizes that the Universe Story (psycho-historical context) provides
new meaning for the individual that may (1) alter behavior and lifestyle and (2)
directly affect the persons health.
83. We will
be purveyors of wellness and anti aging information and will synthesize the best
of conventional and alternative medicine. More importantly, we will provide the
context to make sense of this information.
84. We believe
that we have for the first time the tools and technology to match our structures
of consciousness.- Multimedia computer technology is a new art form that
does not narrow the human spirit and will become the primary agent for social
and cultural transformation in the years ahead.
Integral Health recognize that there is just as much fragmentation in alternative
medicine as there is in conventional medicine. Integral Health seeks to unite
the best of conventional and alternative medicine.
Integral Health includes paying attention to the body, emotions, mind and spirit.
87. With Integral Health, learners achieve a deepening awareness
of both the socio-cultural reality which shapes their lives and of their capacity
to transform that reality through action upon it.
Remembering (anamnesis) gradually leads people to wholeness, to meaning, to a
tacit knowledge of the mystery held within their own being.
Up to now, in the modern period, we have been without a comprehensive story of
the universe (cosmology) thus we have at the present time a distorted mode
of human presence (and health) upon the earth.
Integral Health seeks to provide a functional cosmology by among others (1) telling
the Universe Story, (2) dialogue, (3) embracing art as meditation, and (4) exploring
different spiritual traditions.
91. Because we lack
a cosmology an experience of the whole our lives have fractured
and broken as have our hearts. Meaning only emerges from a sense of connectedness.
92. Since most people today lack a cosmology, a sense of the
universe as home, most have no sense of ecology [Eikos (GK) means home]. Integral
Health recognizes that you cannot have well people on a sick planet.
Integral Health is also committed to helping health professionals who are overworking
and under exploring their own inner lives and sense of well-being.
Integral Health recognizes the importance of self-help. The capacity to illicit
the relaxation response resides within all of us. This can only happen
if some quiet time is set aside each day.
Integral Health recognizes the doctor as gardener rather than doctor
96. Integral Health agrees with
Thomas Aquinas treatment for soul diseases. Wonder was the motive that led people
to philosophy. Philosophy is to the cure of the soul what medicine is to the cure
of the body. Wonder is a kind of desire in knowing. It is the cause of delight
because it carries with it the hope of discovery.
Integral Health recognizes that the primary purpose of any company is to serve
as a personal arena for development of those working in the company (goods, services,
and profits are just the by-products).
Health embraces art as a key factor in healing people need inspiration,
vision, story telling, humor, dance, music, and beauty.
Consciousness changes from one generation to the next. As our organs evolve, so
does our consciousness. An example is our recent ability to see the color blue,
perspective and the new understanding of space and time.
Integral Health recognizes that increasing numbers of people are experiencing
the emergent integral structure of consciousness. A chief characteristic of this
is a new sense of wonder and joy.
