VITAL HEALTH

Vital is a word I have been working with for many years and I believe for some of us requires some contemplation and perhaps some note taking to establish what it actually means to us personally. As is with the concept of health, the term vitality is subjective and can mean a whole lot of things to different people.
For example, some people think of health as going to see their medical doctor while others their selected and preferred health care professional.

Vitalism respects the structure and function of living things while at the same time recognizing that there is an “innate intelligence” that designed and keeps the systems working as they should. Our present system has held that we should entrust our health in other people and now we have lost our trust in other people to a certain extent and we have lost touch with our ‘innate intelligence’ .It is important to understand that there are things which can affect body’s ability to communicate with itself and so bring back or restore balance. We discuss these as the 3 T’s- Toxins, Thought, and Trauma (physical).
The current healthcare model maintains a mechanistic view. The mechanist view holds that the smallest components of the physical body’s structure as building blocks.These blocks are understood to make up the whole. From the smallest component of ourselves we see vibrations, then subatomic particles, then atoms, and molecules which build tissues, which form organelles, organs, and systems. This view, leaves no room for an “innate intelligence”, looking only in fragments as problems in isolation! These parts are part of a whole structure and are not complete but interconnected. The mechanistic approach maintains that the body is powerless to perform self maintenance and healing. This assumption takes places a higher value on the educated mind than on a body that actually made itself. It also encourages a passive participant role.
I am very interested in human potential and as we go through stage development, more and more of us are now wanting  to become more aware so that we can have hope and we can see a drive that is not only helping us individually but collectively. If we can raise our consciousness to a point that we can be the observer and the leader in what we do rather than being so consumed or heavily identified with our life. Repercussions of this view lead to addictive behaviour. We have a primitive desire is to eat, some of us become that desire to eat, all of our other concerns are shoved aside and everything we look at is food. You would become the desire to eat not be the observer of the desire to eat. This is a food addiction.
