Mindfulness is a separate faculty of consciousness totally distinct from cognition (thinking), emotion (feelings), intuition or sensory awareness (the 5 senses).
Mindfulness is not about Mystical Religions, awareness or meditation, although many religious and spiritual paths make use of mindfulness techniques. Many therapies and psychotherapies are becoming “mindfulness-based” as it is discovered that all healing methodologies get better results if mindfulness is adjunctively applied. Mindfulness techniques are primarily taught to improve emotional stability, to manage stress, to expand ones intelligence, to become more productive and to lead a more joyful and meaningful life.
People come to us at NIHA when they have concerns about their health of body or mind. Working with the natural laws of health is the goal of the integrative medicine practitioners at NIHA and we are proud to announce the formation of the Integrative Physical Health Initiative. The insights of our various practitioners are adding to the IPH menu of choices available for individual health care programs by recognizing that every physical concern is affected by the person’s conscious participation in improving their health.
