Philosophy

Increasing health risks and quality of life concerns of today's modern society e.g., (heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, arthritis, obesity) combined with the depersonalization, skyrocketing costs and uncertainties about the inclusiveness of managed health care are influencing seekers of optimal health and well-being to search for complementary/integrative forms as well as alternative/preventative methods. Per Herbert Benson MD, (founder of The Mind-Body Medical Institute at Harvard) health and well-being can be viewed as a three-legged stool. The first leg is pharmaceuticals, the second surgical procedures and the third self-care. The self-care leg embodies a mindful way of living, which blends the dynamics of exercise, nutrition, supplementation, stress management and a personal belief system.
