The Health Paradigm

LeftAlign1) A model of seeing all manifestations as healthful, whereby being broken is an impossibility.

2) A concept where all feedback is both timely and accurate in its presentation and necessity.

3) A way of viewing symptoms as being perfect in order to ascertain its wisdom and reason for being.

4) A viewpoint of acknowledging that "healthy people die," "dying is natural," and " dying occurs organically at all different ages and stages of maturity.

Diseases of meaning, manifestations of health, and metaphor

With the combination of Multiple Truths, forward-thinking concepts such as The Health Paradigm are NOT threatening. All aspects of holistic health have their place and utility. Equally, so too does the disease care model of healthcare. Therapeutics, bio-medical interventions, etc. all come with a way of viewing things, known as a paradigm.

Years ago I became aware of this paper written by K A Jobst, D Shostak, and P J Whitehouse (a medical doctor). These three people had the foresight to address what Thriveapeutics calls The Health Paradigm, highlighting an important role that disease plays in providing both meaning and metaphor. Game changing indeed. Empowering. Supportive to a very high degree, especially considering the notion of diseases being "manifestations of health." Enjoy.
