Deepak Chopra, a physician by training wrote an excellent manifesto on the efficacy of holistic health. Quoting statistics from several diverse sources that support what many of us know – we are turning to holistic health even when it means we have to pay for it all out of our own pockets.
Rolfing as one of the first holistic therapies is at the core of this shift Chopra speaks about in his article. For decades, Rolfers have shown that improving you total health is the best investment you can make.
Self-responsibility is the key ingredient to creating a sustainable shift in our healthcare. More people need to see themselves, not a doctor, a health insurance company or the government as the one responsible for their health. Living in a country where it citizens expect a free pill that will immediately cure their current problem with no side effects only perpetuates this dilemma. There will never be such a pill.
