True health is honed by sinking into the core
of one's being wherein lies the capacity to act with wisdom, choose with
passion, intend with direction, live with gratitude, discern with clarity
and proceed with love and a willing heart. These are the core elements of
being that provide guidance through a process unique to each and every
person, whereby health is illuminated by our communion with life itself.
The restoration of health is not found in a
prescription; it cannot be bought or given, nor is it found through any one
person or by following a set of rules. It is not a linear paradigm. One
person cannot define it for another. There is no right or wrong choice.
Restoring health requires a conscious
understanding of a functioning organism with interrelated systems which hold
an innate perfection capable of sustaining an unfathomable life force under
the most dire circumstances. We cannot solve the mystery of life but
we can honor that it is so, and proceed with the intention of minimizing the
forces that impede the spark of life while optimizing those that lift the
being to its greatest potential.
We define health as a state of
abundant well-being free of imbalances which impede optimal functioning,
spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Health care is a therapeutic
system which nurtures health and supports healing. Healing is the road to
health. Quality health care is free
of side-effects and respects the whole person, mind and body. By its very nature
quality health care prevents disease. The ultimate responsibility for our good
health and healing lies with us.

quality health care?
