So what does it mean to be META-Healthy? One definition from MHU founder Johannes R. Fisslinger is that to be META-Healthy means that you are aware of your bodies intelligence, you know what your stress triggers (or buttons!) are and you understand which emotions and beliefs are affecting your symptoms.
Being META-Healthy goes even deeper than this though.
It means taking conscious actions towards self-healing based on this understanding so that health become a person growth issue. The truth is that we can’t really separate our health issues from who we really are. Even though as a practitioner you may be mostly interested in META-Health as a healing paradigm, META-Health can be for everyone, not just those with a ‘condition’ but anyone who wants to evolve consciously and express more of their potential.
The word META comes from the ancient Greek and means ‘beyond’, which is really how we see META-Health – as a system of healthcare and personal development which is a step beyond the current system available. The aim of MHU is to present a model of healthcare which integrates many of the existing modalities currently available, to produce a truly integrated system. One of the major problems with the current system is that it’s fragmented with very little communication between the different options available.
There are amazing Drs, naturopaths, EFT practitioners and energy workers in the world all doing incredible work, but either working alone or in relative isolation. Unfortunately, with healthcare, one size doesn’t fit all, which is why we feel there needs to be a more integrated approach.
META-Health hopes to fill this need for more integration by offering a bridge between different modalities so we can all work together more effectively.
One of the difficulties in cross communication amongst practitioners that currently restricts collaborations is because we all use different language and different models to explain and understand how the body works. This is another limitation META-Health hopes to address by providing a universal language and comprehensive integrated medicine paradigm into which all healthcare modalities can then fit.
That way, if we’re all working from the same model it becomes much easier to communicate across modalities in way that not only makes sense but also makes it easier to identify which therapeutic intervention is most suitable.
