Five Dimensional Healing

Five Dimensional

Our unique program offers comprehensive assessment and interventions on five levels of human experience and functioning. We believe that health on these five dimensions promotes integration and well-being of the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of living.

We invite you to explore the Five Dimensions of Healing - from the cell and its associated genes to emotions and the mind - as a pathway to transformation.

Our services benefit:
● People with chronic illnesses
● People who have had diseases in the past
who want to maintain health
● Healthy people who want to learn
comprehensive and holistic approaches
that integrate body, mind, and spirit.

What We Offer

Our comprehensive assessment and ongoing treatment plan covers the following five focus areas of overall health:

1) Physical/Cellular/Genomic

2) Energy/Breath/Molecular reactions
that create energy through nutrition

3) Mental/Conscious mind/Attitudes/
Decision making/Subconscious thoughts

4) Emotional/Autonomic Nervous
System Activity/Inner feelings/Unconscious Mind/Intuition

5) Spiritual/Relational/Collective
Unconscious/Higher Self

Underlying Models of our Program

Underlying Models of our Program

Raja (Royal) Yoga - is known as the integrated path of meditation. Our program focuses on the eight steps of raja yoga, Learn good health habits, yoga postures, breathing exercises, and concentration techniques to help focus the mind.
Chakras - are subtle centers within the body where physical, psychological, and spiritual forces interact and intersect. Our approach teaches meditation on the seven major chakras to activate the centers and to stimulate and regulate the physical and psycho-spiritual qualities associated with each center.
Homeopathy - is a system based on the idea that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person will also cure a sick person with those same symptoms (law of similars). Homeopathic remedies are energized medicinal substances that are highly diluted and activated. A vital healing force moves in the direction of greater overall balance for the whole person, and this healing force is clearly expressed in every mental, emotional, and physical symptom.

Qi Gong - an ancient Chinese practice that we use in our program to promote health, mental clarity, and longevity. Qi Gong combines movement, tai chi, mind focus and breathing exercises to stimulate the flow of energy and cleansing of bodily systems.

Coaching - our job is to help you to take the research we have done, along with your information and skills to: help you make decisions about changes and goals; help you develop a personal “action plan”; assist you in implementing your action plan and make behavioral changes; and help you develop strategies to maintain the changes you have made. We will support, encourage, teach, and help you stay “on track”.

Unique Aspects of Five Dimensional Assessment and Intervention

Unique Aspects of
Five Dimensional Assessment and Intervention

In our unique approach, we target two very important and fascinating health and well-being factors - Nuclear Factor-kappa Beta (NF-kB) and macrophages. These function as molecular and genomic gateways that regulate the body, mind, and emotions. These factors are also affected by all five dimensions of being and they modulate gene expression, inflammation, and immunity.

Our program assessments and interventions also focus on regulating other key genomic, immune, and hormonal factors. We use nutrition, nutraceutical supplementation, homeopathy, medications, breathing techniques, healing visualizations of the cellular and gene environment, and chakra based meditation.

The Benefits

The Benefits

Our integrative medicine approach focuses on both healing and curing models. We offer interventions that encourage self management skills useful for improving your nutritional, emotional, mental and relational/spiritual levels of personal experience (healing model). We also recognize the importance of conventional medicine - drugs, chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation - offered as the standard of care for physical illnesses (curing model).

We work in partnership with you and your primary care provider (if necessary) to understand your responsibilities during the healing process. Understanding and working with your overall health and functioning on the five dimensions/levels of consciousness can transform your life, empowering you to fulfill your greatest potential.

Our Methods and Goals

Our Methods and Goals

An exciting cornerstone of our approach is a series of tests that assess your genome and other immune markers that predispose you to inflammatory conditions such as cancer, heart disease, asthma, colitis, and arthritis.

Genomics is the study of how your genes interact with each other and with the environment to create the complexity of life. By using genomic information we can help you personalize medical care by basing treatments specifically on your genetic makeup.

With this information, our program offers interventions on five levels of personal experience to help modify and minimize genomic and immune malfunctioning. By implementing important preventive and therapeutic health care measures on these five levels, we assist your movement toward optimum health that continues well beyond the training period.
