If you’re roughly my age or older and maybe younger, the idea of taking an integrative approach to health and healing as a wholistic matter is probably approached with some caution. Honestly, though our health is in our hands and with a little thinking it seems pretty clear that despite a lot of Western medicine wanting to isolate body parts and issues in to different systems, it’s all part of a whole. Isn’t it? At least, I think I’m in agreement with a lot of this. The deeper it’s investigated, the move it seems not only legitimate but something that we need to embrace.
Integrative Imperative by Michael Doyle In these troubled times, it is imperative That we think about things integrative Joining together the body, spirit and mind Empowered toward wellness as we find The body heals the body it's openly said Let that roll around in your head Half the time, placebos appear to function As traditional and alternative come into conjunction Doctors are learning to listen and to integrate As patients have taken greater charge of their fates It has become a thing of proven worthy relationship Learning to turn to nutrition, wellness and even worship It's a truism that disease comes from behavior observed And that only in the right living do we gain life deserved Integrative medicine is not new as is too often told But really it is a return to the wisdom of the old Traditional medicine avoids things like pills What is needed is to look at meditation not cheap thrills Mindfulness is a think of good and decent thought It is, indeed, the path toward our wellness well sought (c) May 29, 2020 Michael Doyle All Rights Reserved
