Changing the Focus in society from the Passive Management of Disease to the Active Creation of Health.
One of the biggest achievements in the field of integrated medicine is the Health Creation Programme, written by Dr. Rosy Daniel. It is the distillation of her 20 years work in this field and can be done by anybody wanting to improve their health, vitality and happiness, and it really works.
Dr Rosy Daniel is an Integrated Medicine Consultant and the author of numerous books on cancer care. Between 1985 and 1999 she was Medical Director of the Bristol Cancer Help Centre. She now teaches all over the world on the holistic treatment and prevention of cancer, including cancer nutrition and the mind-body connection, or ‘psycho-neuro-immunology’ (PNI).
The Health Creation Programme pushes beyond health risk appraisals to the wellness dimension of the illness-wellness continuum. Conventional medical care alone will never bring you too the brink of joyfulness, zest for life, and treating the environment responsibly. This programme puts the health back into health care. It is a refreshing approach after years of "strictly by the numbers" Health Risk Appraisals that tell you how old you ought to be or why you are not already dead. Without a doubt, this work manual is the most valuable and useful resource on wellness ever written. It has often been said that there is, unfortunately, no manual for living - but this well-loved book comes pretty close.
The Health Creation Programme is designed to speed recovery by pro-active holistic health promotion and is also relevant to those with other chronic or lifestyle related illness.
The programme helps you to look at all areas of life – the physical, mental/emotional, spiritual and environmental aspects.
It will help people diagnosed with a life threatening illness and their carer to walk the journey towards health. It will help to make huge differences in the ability of people, not only to cope and get the best treatment, but also to help them to open their own healing potential. It helps you find the best support to get through the shock of diagnosis, make the right treatment decisions and get the best outcome from the treatments. This is ideal if you have just been diagnosed with cancer. It is an interactive workbook.
How can I start to make a change?
Dr. Rosy Daniel:
“All the people I’ve worked with that have had serious cancers have said, without exception, “Why did we have to wait to get a diagnosis of our illness before making healthy lifestyle changes? Why did we have to be frightened to death to become fully alive?” They all wish that they had taken the opportunity to put their lives on an authentic footing 30 years before, when they knew something wasn’t right, when all the signals (body, mind and spirit) were saying “This is wrong, my life balance is all wrong”. So, to anybody who has that feeling in their heart that things aren’t right, get going now – whether you decide to use the service of a Health Creation Coach or any one of the other marvelous, life affirming possibilities out there. Listen to your wisdom and start to make changes. Almost all of the remarkable recoveries from cancer that I’ve witnessed happened when people re-discovered their sense of meaning and purpose in life. So take time to find out what makes you feel fully alive, whatever it might be – belly dancing, opera singing, learning to fly jets, anything that gets your juices flowing – because the mind-body connection means that when we are fully energised, fully committed, and loving our life then surprise, surprise, our bodies work best.”
The Programme will lead you gently through:
- Recovering from the shock and trauma of diagnosis
- Setting up your own support network
- Getting the information you need to make the best treatment decisions
- Making informed treatment decisions which are right for you
- Preparing for your treatment, psychological, physically and practically
- Getting the best treatment outcomes with the complementary support and positive visualisation
- Convalescing properly after treatment
- Having creative self - help to deal effectively with symptoms
- Getting yourself onto the road to recovery
THE CARERS GUIDE
The Carer's Guide provides carers with their own workbook to help them to be the best possible carer whilst also supporting and encouraging them to recognise their own state, identify their needs and form their own coping strategy. The guide helps you to understand and work with your feelings through an emotionally and physically draining time, supporting you to look after your own needs too and thereby enabling you to give the best of yourself in your caring role.
THE PICTURE OF HEALTH
This can now be completed online and in 30-45 minutes your personal Picture of Health will give you real clarity about the current state of your health and lifestyle. You will identify quickly your strengths and vulnerabilities in all areas of mind, body, spirit and environment. With this valuable insight you can plan your Health Creation Goals to achieve optimum health. It can be used to give you a snapshot now of your health and well-being and can also be used as an holistic measurement tool to compare current results with levels achieved after you have made healthy changes or had therapeutic help. In this way you can clearly chart your progress and review your state and needs on a regular basis, fine tuning your Health Creation Goals and Action Plan every month.
Once you log in to perform your first Picture of Health you can keep your results in your own account and return to do the exercise again at regular intervals. You can also complete the exercise in two sittings, as all the work you have done will be stored safely to return to later. This gives you the perfect tool to empower yourself step by step to achieve really positive health, fulfillment and happiness.
