GREEN MEDICINE: Challenging the Assumptions of Conventional Health Care
“It will change the way you think about health care and healing.”
Principles of Green Health and Healing:
- Green Medicine emphasizes the broader medical perspective of holism.
- Green Medicine seeks to personalize each and every healing experience.
- Green Medicine supports the innate healing capacity of the body/heart/mind/soul.
- Green Medicine aims to heal the whole rather than suppress the symptom.
- Green Medicine is grounded in spiritual awareness and ecological consciousness.
- Green Medicine works with all healing modalities in the spirit of cooperation.
Modern medicine, according to Dr. Larry Malerba, has perfected the short-term technical repair of the physical body at the expense of the long-term emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being of the whole person. In Green Medicine, he examines this issue and provides a conceptual foundation and valuable guide for those who seek deeper and more lasting healing. Using layperson’s language, the author draws on a rich range of fields—including physics, philosophy, Jungianism, shamanism, alchemy, dream theory, Eastern thought, Western esotericism, and orthodox medicine—to create a green medical paradigm that represents a powerful synthesis of medical inclusivity.
Dr. Malerba interweaves case histories from his own practice with the latest research in the fields of alternative and traditional Western medicine. He addresses a wealth of timely questions: Do pharmaceutical drugs create more problems than they solve? Is our current vaccination policy effective? How can conventional doctors and spiritual healers begin to work together? How can readers transform corporate medicine by becoming educated participants in their own healthcare? Green Medicine offers a practical and philosophical basis for building a viable green alternative that draws on the inherent unity of body, heart, mind, and soul.
Educated patients are hungering for a medical system that addresses the needs of body, heart, mind, and soul. Green Medicine describes the flaws in orthodox medical thinking that lead to flawed outcomes, explains in clear language the differences between treatment, suppression, and the dynamics of genuine healing, and offers a new hopeful green perspective that includes the best of orthodox medical and holistic healing methods.
Green Medicine is a unique blend of philosophy of healing, ecological consciousness, spirituality, medical case histories, and a critique of conventional medicine. Green Medicine is a critical analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the materialistic and mechanistic nature of modern medicine. It explains the suppressive dangers of most drugs and warns of the consequences of treating the body as if it is not connected to the heart, mind, and soul.
Green Medicine examines these issues and provides a conceptual foundation and practical guide to those who seek to move beyond the limitations of conventional healthcare. Dr. Malerba provides a practical and philosophical foundation upon which to build a new green medical perspective that respects the inherent unity of body, heart, mind, and soul.
