The Integrative Medical Institute has been in the energy of changing lives for the past 30 plus years. We have been committed to a wholistic mind-body-spirit journey since our inception. We embraced the concept of Integrative Medicine and chose to stand apart from what back then was seen as alternative and complimentary medicine. We chose integrative as a way of describing the best from all worlds, from western and eastern medicine, foundationally embracing evidence-based practice while expanding into the domains of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health. It does not amaze us that there is a consciousness being raised again as to the value of the spiritual or non-tangible worlds, ENERGY.
We have always believed that technology and scientific medicine are trying to catch up with biology and healing. That breakthrough medicine may not be as much of a breakthrough as an awakening to what may work.
Regarding the MIND as a Clinical Psychologist and physician, the mind has always been an essential focus for our healing and wellness. The mind is where we spend a great deal of our time. As time has gone on more technology has arisen to enhance the older methods of practice. Practices like meditation, hypnosis, progressive relaxation, and mindfulness. The awareness that the brain is an organ of frequency, and the frequencies can become so localized that the mind as well as the body are held in sort of a container limiting movement. We embrace the neuroplasticity of the brain and believe this energy can be moved around through the above-mentioned practices and therefore, change the mind and its experiences as the mind is an outcome of the brain patterns.
Technology has not allowed us to see the energy fields, to map them out and to redirect it to create new pathways. Change the brain, change the mind.
How is this possible? The mind is like a flashlight, the light comes out of the body driven by charged batteries and through filaments that fire up, which gives light. If we had numerous filaments in different areas, we would have a scatter of light. When our brain is held into a single container with limited movement the mind has limited experience which may or may not be helpful (stable or stuck?). By redirecting the energy, we have new illuminations and therefore, a different foundational paradigm for the mind, new awareness, new perspectives.
How is this completed. The brain has five well established brain waves: gamma, beta, theta, alpha and delta. The programs now available that we use work with over 10,000 points of energy and takes the brain wave into a 3-dimensional form of imagery and provides us with a color distribution to show level 3-dimensional low intensity. So, we can now see the brain, and its live activity. This is different than an MRI or CT scan, as those form of imagery and non-active. By seeing the brain live we can redirect that energy to a lower level and move to balance the energy of the brain out more evenly, allowing it to harmonize when desired by activating as needed giving the individual a greater sense of fluidity, movement, and health and therefore, changing the mind by changing the brain.
Whether you do those through technology (like brain mapping and neurofeedback) or through other forms of practice, you can change your brain and therefore, change your mind. It takes a committed practice; however, it is very doable.
ALWAYS WITH YOU IN SPIRIT.
