Traditional medicine systems are holistic, believing that mind and body are intricately linked. Unlike the dominant Western Approach to Medicine, they aim to treat the whole body, focussing on mental, as well as physical health. Research is now revealing the wisdom of this approach and the depth of the mind-body connection, with studies showing that even thoughts can influence our physical wellbeing(1), (2). We discuss this profound connection on the Mental Wellbeing page.
The central role of the nervous system and the influences of lifestyle and stressors in the causing of disease, as well as microbiome health, are all to often ignored by conventional Western medicine, which disarticulates systems of the body in an attempt to treat areas separately. The focus is on easing symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs, instead of aiming to cure patients. In other words, mainstream medical establishments focus on symptomatic care and treatment rather than addressing the root causes of ailments. “As doctors, we’re largely taught to ‘cure illnesses’ by just treating symptoms. Our training is not as useful for the current epidemic of chronic lifestyle-related conditions that now flood our surgeries.”(3)
