Have you ever wondered why, despite all good intentions, just it can not seem to take control their health and welfare of the way you really want? The answer to this question can be found in the words of Albert Einstein, who reminded us “you can not correct a problem with the same thinking that created it.” In other words, you can not change old behaviors without new information.
The Institute of Medicine recently she published a study that indicates ninety million Americans are “illiterate health”, which means we do not know how to interpret or use health information to control or improve our health and prevent chronic diseases . The data collected previously identified, “lack of information as the main root cause of death.” The realization that there is a cause and effect relationship between what we know and how we behave, we need a model of integration is important to change the behaviors that lead to chronic disease information. According to a 7-year 1996, the study of Harvard Medical School, approximately 70% of all cancers can be prevented through lifestyle changes. Moreover, our diseases and conditions are primarily the result of stress, diet, environment, attitude, emotions or beliefs that keep us in behaviors that lead to disease. Which invites the question, consciously we are choosing to be unhealthy, or simply do not sufficiently understand the relationship between what we think, how we behave, what we put into our bodies and how we keep well or make us sick?
In a world exploding with health information, especially on the Internet, they are caught in the dilemma of having abundant amounts of information without a context through which we can understand and use this information in a way that is appropriate for our own unique personal health needs. There are, however, good news – making their way into the mainstream of health care is an integrated information and health education model that provides a “complete picture of health” perspective, allowing each of us to discern and create our own unique approach to taking care of our health and wellbeing. Health Education jointly developed over the past 28 years, in collaboration with the Boston doctors, nurses and educators, is an approach to understanding the cause and effect of our behavior and decisions have on our health. Demystifying the five major factors that influence how sick or healthy we become, Whole Health Education offers a perspective on human anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, psycho-social, environmental and spiritual aspects that allows a true understanding of what we need to know to solve chronic health problems or to stay healthy. The integration of information based on evidence with the wisdom of various spiritual teachings and a holistic view of the person’s behavior options, Whole Health Education offers each of us a tool for managing personal health by providing health information custom explaining the physical, emotional, nutritional, environmental and spiritual aspects of a health problem.
For example, Mature Onset Diabetes affects approximately 18.2 million Americans and is the main health problem in our culture. Like all chronic diseases are ripe The onset of diabetes is a multi-dimensional disease and the unique perspective of Health Total, can facilitate the recovery of health for people with chronic diseases such as diabetes.
Physical / Structural
What happens in a physical and structural level with Mature Onset Diabetes? Specialized beta cells pancreas, which produce insulin, become unable to produce adequate amounts secretion critically needed. This occurs over a period of years and can start in our bodies, eventually, by consuming large amounts of insulin food for thought. These insulin provocateurs, which are sugars and starches in the form of complex carbohydrates, require the pancreas to produce more insulin so that the sugars can be performed on the cell membranes of all body parts. serious disturbances occur when we do not have enough insulin to transport sugar on cell membranes. hooks insulin in the sugar molecule and acts like a lock and key mechanism to bring that sugar into the cell which is then used in the energy cycle of cell metabolism. The nervous system, brain and lungs can not function without the proper metabolism of sugars.
Emotional / Social
Like diabetes is a lack of food in a chemical / nutritional level, so it is a lack of emotional nourishment on an emotional / mental level. It is related to the “feel good” nutrition component of your body. What do we know about carbohydrates and serotonin? Carbohydrates cause serotonin production. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that produces a feeling of well-being. There is a direct relationship between what our body is doing chemically and how we feel emotionally. When you crave or build our diet around carbohydrates, this can be a form of “self-medicating” our emotional needs by eating carbohydrates to provoke insulin production.
sugar problems can affect us emotionally. Let’s say you have a pancreas is not working properly. What can happen somatic / psychically from the pancreas to the brain? If we are feeling the ups and downs of hypoglycemia, and neurological / biochemical symptoms, it can undermine our sense of security, self-esteem, and produce anxiety and fear.
What is the emotional component of diabetes and pancreas? Often, it can be a poor sense of self-esteem and fear of not being “good enough” or not belonging. These feelings, medicated by food serotonin can lead us to not look far enough into what is causing health problems and allow the cycle of feeling / feeding to continue.
Chemistry / nutrition
On the nutritional side, treatment for people with diabetes mature onset is to decrease the pressure on the pancreas by making changes in your diet – starches and sugars decline and reduce calories. Eat less, eat well. What kind of diet is best for mature onset diabetes prevention? Vegetables and vegetables combined with lean proteins like fish, chicken, water, some fruit and a little fat. In a hypoglycemic situation, it is advisable not to eat grain or sugar, but sprouted grain bread, and other substitutes can be healthy and satisfying.
Because hormones are chemicals, diabetes and hypoglycemia are both hormonal-based problems. What we know about the hormonal system is that it operates as a balanced interdependent system. Diabetes is an endocrine systemic problem. With a systemic problem like diabetes, you have an organ system problem that not only has a condition itself. It is known that the pancreas is related, through the interaction of the hormone, the adrenal glands and adrenal glands are in turn related to the reproductive system. It is known that these glands are related through interactions of the hormone to the pituitary and pituitary is related to the thyroid gland, the thyroid gland is related to the thymus, thymus and is related to the immune system.
Environmental / internal and external
The environment in which we work, live, walk, live near – How the environment has an impact on how we feel and how we feel about ourselves
How do we learn to trust the order of the universe? By behaviors that come from trusting the order inside ourselves. We do this by setting boundaries – codes of conduct of how we behave, eat, exercise work and live. If we do not violate our own limits, which are less likely to let anyone violate our borders. We must start with ourselves. Our experience of victimization can start with our own self-victimization behavior.
Spiritual / World View
A Hindu Vedanta truth is that “the whole world is one family”. It is said that there is only one disease, disease of separation, separating himself from the awareness that we are a living organism. Competition creates isolation. The spiritual challenge presented by hypoglycemia and diabetes appears to be involved with over- or under-valuation of self: judgment of self and then others. Where are we in the process of getting to the truth that we are all equally important? The drama created by a dynamic single up or we can allow ourselves to be part of our experience can lead to psychophysiology and behavioral problems that can contribute to creating and mature onset diabetes of inferiority.
Total Health Education can transform our experience of taking care of ourselves. It can provide an understanding of our concerns and health problems from this multidimensional perspective that makes sense in a way that we can use the information directly and in a meaningful way. Also, having the information in a conscious way, respectful invites each of us to discern what we know about our health and condition, how to choose to solve the problem and what kind of care we choose to have, it allows each we experience the comprehensive health care of the person through health information in general. So we become the center of our process health and healing instead of medical professionals or we go for guidance.
