Mind-Based Medicine Provides Missing Link in American Healthcare
Could your health and wellness all be in your mind? It could, according to a California-based company's research into the newly-discovered field of mind-based medicine.
Online, July 22, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Could your health and wellness all be in your mind? It could, according to a California-based company's research into the newly-discovered field of mind-based medicine.
"People across America are desperate for relief from all kinds of ailments, from excessive weight to stress to heart disease," says PorterVision founder Patrick K. Porter, PhD. "The diseases themselves are often related directly to the modern American lifestyle, a lifestyle that is more stressful, more mentally and emotionally demanding, than people have experienced at any other time in history."
At the same time, Americans are starting to realize that "traditional" medicine has little to offer them. Popping the latest medication simply doesn't work; and side effects often seem worse than the diseases. Instead, people are turning in droves to companies like PorterVision that offer mind-based medicine alternatives such as creative visualization and relaxation (CVR). Recent studies at prominent universities and hospitals have helped further propel such mind-based healing methods into the limelight.
"Albert Einstein, arguably the greatest mind of our time, taught us that everything in the universe is made up of energy. That energy influences every aspect of our lives." Porter says.
From that discovery came quantum physics, the relatively new science of universal energy. From a human perspective, the thoughts we think shape our mental and physical health. Those thoughts can be our downfall if left to themselves or used incorrectly. Or, they can be the well from which we draw the energy for wellbeing and success.
"Mind-based medicine views physical and mental health in a multidimensional context, rather than a singular cognitive format," Dr. Patrick Porter says. "With an in-depth knowledge of such subtle energy and quantum communication, we are better equipped to address the issues of our culture's current, over-stressed lifestyles. Mind-based, quantum technology offers a new reality in preventing disease and promoting optimal health for every human being."
When examined from that angle, it becomes obvious that mind-based therapy is the logical key to unlocking infinite possibilities in the healing arts and personal improvement, says Porter. Most notably, CVR guided imagery, or the practice of concentrating on vivid mental pictures, can help people manage pain, lessen stress, boost self-confidence and improve sleep patterns, among other things.
Porter also plays an important role in a related technology that narrows the mind-body wellness gap...biofeedin. According to Porter, advanced biofeedin--or light and sound--technology has the potential to trigger a revolution in medicine and psychology. That's because biofeedin uses finely-tuned light and sound frequencies to synchronize the left and right sides of the brain and produce deeply relaxed brainwave activity. The result is lasting changes in far less time than with traditional medical methods. The power of the technology led Porter to develop ZenFrames, light and sound glasses that can plug into any MP3 player.
"Over the last 20 years, biofeedin devices like ZenFrames have bridged traditional therapy and mind-based integrative practices," Porter says. "Hospitals, doctors, chiropractors and other health professionals throughout the world have already incorporated this new technology into their practices with exceptional results."
Most importantly, the combination of light and sound technology and mind-based medicine like CVR packs a powerful double punch for a variety of issues. The effect is so great, Porter argues, that every man, woman, and child in the United States could benefit from participating in a mind-based program for wellness or achievement.
"Mind-based healing is a preventive solution and a significant technology for reversing imbalances in the body, mind and spirit. Mind-based medicine goes beyond 'natural' medicine," Porter says. "It is also a low-cost, noninvasive approach that reduces stress, enhances health, and trains the brain for optimum performance. That makes mind-based medicine the missing link in our current healthcare system."
