At Creative Health Institute, we focus on teaching our students how to approach illness and disease from the broadest view possible. Often, Learning this view is met with some resistance due to the contemporary medical model (allopathic) which is built largely on the contagion theory of disease and the suppression of symptoms, with the use of prescription medications.
The holistic curriculum we use in our classes teaches our students that most illness and disease is usually the result of multiple causes (both internal and external), and therefore they must learn to approach illness and disease from a multi-dimensional approach which take into account the body, mind, emotions and spirit.
We know that when we nourish our bodies with a diet high in natural raw living foods, our bodies will respond and naturally detoxify and that the nutritional deficiencies which may have played a part in our illness or disease will be replaced with health and wellness. When we combine this type of natural eating with physical exercise, breathing exercises, prayer/meditation and relaxation, we give our bodies the opportunity to heal and overcome illness and disease. If, at any point, we can not properly assimilate natural raw living food nourishment, we may decide to utilize herbs and supplements to nourish our bodies, so we can bring them back into balance.
