The Radical Healer Medical Philosophy

The Radical Healer Medical Philosophy

respects personal choice in all matters of health, healing, wholeness and wellness,

sees the patient as a person, not the disease

 

promotes and supports the innate healing capacity of the body/

heart/mind/soul. The whole. The belief that it is YOU, your body,

every bit of you, seen and unseen, that does the healing. Doctors do not,

they and drugs can only facilitate your process – or often, can get in the way

and do more damage than good.

is open to all healing modalities, both conventional and unconventional,

functional, integrative, alternative, complimentary, natural etc working

and in the spirit of cooperation. It is how the body operates. 

There are times when the old paradigm of healing, healing one complaint

at a time, assuming you need separate modalities or specialists for each

pain or problem, has outrun its course . It is how the NHS operates. 

believes what is needed is a new paradigm of wholeness healing, aiming

to heal everything,  because life is entangled that way. The NHS medical

paradigm should mirror how the body actually works – as an integrated whole

with healing taking a team approach involving the patient and doctor and other

health professionals, addressing all aspects of a person's life with practitioners using

a variety of heath care practices using a variety of treatment techniques drawn from across conventional medicine and all the other approaches eg functional medicine, integrative medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Complimentary and Alternative Medicine and helping patients take responsibility for their own well-being to achieve optimal health.

emphasises the broader medical perspective of holism and not the narrow, compartmentalised, specialism, reductionist, closed and outdated system within the UK NHS. People must be treated as whole human beings – not as if they were a machine with bit parts

questions why we keep ploughing extortionate amounts of money into the current British healthcare system which focuses on short-term technical care of the physical body at the expense of the creation of health, including our long-term physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.

believes we have long since forgotten and presently have yet to tap into the enormous healing potential inherent in taking into account the infinite spiritual reality of which we are all a part. The inner energetic, psychic, and spiritual dimensions of human beings are just as important, if not more so, than our external physical bodies and presenting symptoms

promotes the need to personalise each and every healing experience – one size does not fit all. If the NHS believes in being patient centred, it must therefore personalise and be patient centred not just say it is. Each and every health care professional must demonstrate it in their every thought, word, manner, and deed

emphasises the treating and healing of the whole rather than simply masking and suppressing symptoms. This includes the paramount need to identify and treat cause, not just the symptom

seeks practical solutions for real-life health problems not their ignoring or suppression as happens in our current predominant long waiting list, tightly time bound medical system offered by GPs (general practitioners)

is grounded in spiritual awareness and ecological consciousness and in recognising the importance of how our environment affects our health and we affect our environment.

acknowledges that people these days are widely informed about health matters or at least have access to information on which to be empowered and informed and tht the NHS medical paradigm needs to acknowledge and work with this instead of denigrating patients who seek to inform themselves.

abhors the damage done to a patient and their health in the time between reporting a condition, especially a mental health one, and being seen by the relevant specialist

emphasises that unconditional love and support is the most powerful healer and a person is ultimately responsible for his or her own health and well-being.

highlights the inadequacies of the worldview that currently frames medical science, and seeks to have people stand for a very different philosophy that can lead to a new, more comprehensive, integrative, functional, holistic way of practising medicine. This would include:-

  • patient education on lifestyle changes and self-care to promote wellness and create health. This may include diet, exercises, psychotherapy, relationship and spiritual counselling, and more

  • complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic care, homeopathy, massage therapy, naturopathy, and others

  • western medications and surgical procedures
