What Is Holistic Healing?
Many alternative medicine practitioners take a holistic approach to healing that recognizes factors often overlooked or ignored by conventional doctors. In this video, Dr. Chopra discusses the main elements of holistic healing.
The way I am looking at it with other people is, the limits of holistic healing, start with everything external. Okay? Career, well-being.
If you hate your job, 36% of people die on Monday morning, at 9 o'clock, because they hate their jobs. Unhappiness with
career is a big cause of illness. So I work with Gallup. I'm a senior scientist with Gallup. We ask people one question, do you
enjoy what you're doing every day? Only 20% can say I do, okay. Are you using your strength everyday? Only 20% can say I do. If
you duly enjoy the person you work with, if your supervisor ignores you, your rate of disengagement goes up by 45%, and you get sick
sooner or later. If he doesn't, or she doesn't ignore you, but actually criticizes you, you get better. It falls to 20%, because you'd rather
be criticized, than ignored. Now you'll exist. Humans have a deep
need for attention. On the other hand, if he notices your strengths, and we have a way of actually figuring out what your strengths
are, putting you in the right seat at the right place in the bus, your disengagement goes up to less than 1%. Your health improves.
And your immune system takes a boost. Social well being. How many people do you engage with, that you
trust everyday? Do you have friends that you can rely on? In fact, if you want to loose weight, if you want to go on a specific diet,
if you want to support somebody else who has breast cancer and you hangout with them, your survival doubles. We are not looking,
in standard medicine. So career well being, social well being, financial well being, community
well being, physical well being, a lot more included. But then we look at physical well being, we look at things like sleep,
which has been ignored, but in fact is the time when the body goes into self repair mechanism, better than any other time. Look
at stress management. Look at phytochemicals, and phytonutrients, which are the healthiest foods on the planet. And look at personal
relationships, and social interactions. In fact, everyday on Twitter,
we have almost 700,000 people. I score my well being. I say, my
well being is 94 today. I do it everyday. There are a few questions you answer. And anything over 70 is thriving. 40 to 70 we say is
struggling. Less than 40 is suffering. And we score individuals,
communities, businesses and even nations. And then we look at the scores then you see, why is Sweden and Denmark up there?
And why is Togo out there? And you look at everything, from hospital admissions, to crime rate, to unrest. We were watching
the well being only in Tunisia, in Egypt, in Libya, and we knew beforehand what was gonna happen, because everything correlates
with well being Whether it's jobs, or satisfaction with the leader, or unrest in society, or hospital admissions, or crime rate, it all
relates to well being. This is holistic wellbeing. If you scored more than 70 in your well being assessment.
is I say, this is my score. Is 94 if I lost 10 pounds it would be 98,okay? So that's the only thing that's missing right now.
And I'm pretty close to it. But then I said to my Twitter followers, which goes up by 1000 everyday. I say, so what's yours? And I send
them to the site. And we're now creating global communities of well-being, through a non-profit
foundation, by just giving then the right information. And then I give them a daily challenge. Did you get your teeth cleaned? When's
the last time you had that done because of the following reasons? Okay? Are you on a good diet? What're you going to do today? And
we engage people. There's nothing like people wanting to be engaged. And now, because of the social networks, I think we're seeing the
extension of our new planetary mind. I think we have it with information is the most useful thing you can give to a person right now. You
can have more information about what you're struggling with, whether it's parkinson's or alzheimer's, or heart disease, or cancer, then
you're a doctor. And you better because it's your life, it's not your doctor's
