I am Efthymios Foteinos and this is my blog. Welcome on board. I hope you will find it interesting and helpful.
Every post will include information and/or advice in regards to physical, mental and emotional health, based on my studies in Psychotherapy, Chinese Medicine and Massage.
Prevention, the best cure
As the father of medicine, Hippocrates said,
“Preventing is better than treating. ”
So, I hope that some of the tips that will be given in this blog, will help your health.
The Mind and the Body are connected
I couldn't express my beliefs about the connection of the physical body, to our mind and emotions better than Bernie Siegel,
“The mind and body are not separate units, but one integrated system. How we act and what we think, eat, and feel are all related to our health. ”
Everything is connected.
Our body doesn't lie. However, many times we feel pain or discomfort and the medical exams do not show any pathology. Because there isn't any, yet. Often, when we are not "listening"to our emotions, problems that are rooted to our soul are manifesting in our physical body. If we insist not to take care of the real cause of our issues, then the body will become ill.
Pain is a blunt friend.
Nobody enjoys pain. Nevertheless, pain is needed, to draw our attention. As a real friend would not look away when we go astray,pain is there to make us wonder what needs to be changed. What do we need to do differently? What do we need to learn?
Ask for help
The body, the mind and the emotions are connected and it is good to pay attention to them, since prevention is the best cure.
If however, an issue has already manifested and we are suffering, then the best piece of advice I can give you is to book an appointment, so that you receive the treatment/help that you need.
Help is always available when one asks for it and is open to receive it. But after all, help is just help. Nobody will cure you. This is each one's responsibility, to make the changes needed and to commit into loving ourselves in word and deed.
