What Is Vitalism?
Vitalism is found in traditional systems all over the world and bases itself on the healing that nature can bring us. It recognizes the connections between the innate intelligence in our unique organism with that of the natural world. Science actually enriches the practices of vitalism and validates bringing nourishment and balance into the individual in many ways (physical, spiritual, psychological…) and as a consequence brings balance to the whole. Vitalism strives to find the root causes of dis-ease and to find long standing solutions, not just palliating the symptoms. As a vitalist practitioner I understand that life exists in rhythms and honor those as a part of the cycle of life rather then suppressing or ignoring them. We each have a deep reservoir of vital life potential and the practices of vitalism help us listen to what is needed to feed that reservoir for optimum function mind-body-soul.
Vitalist practices elevate mood, energy levels, balance the body in general and cultivate a sense of belonging and meaning to life.
