Herbert Benson, M.D. of the Harvard Medical School claims that maintaining good health is analogous to building a three-legged stool.
The first leg is Self-Care.
The second leg is Surgery & Medical Procedures.
The third leg is Pharmaceuticals.
“Health and well-being, is balanced and optimal
only when all three legs of the stool are in place.”
The NIH claims that more than 1 in 3 Americans now seek mind/body healing therapies to supplement their conventional care. As a physician or other health care provider, you can deepen your understanding of Yoga Science as mind/body medicine and its scientific foundation by attending this stimulating immersion course led by Leonard Perlmutter and a panel of other leading experts.
Health professionals who provide direct patient care or patient education in areas of self-management, lifestyle behaviors, and mind/body medicine are encouraged to attend. This includes, but is not limited to physicians (all fields), psychologists, nurses, social workers, counselors, hospice workers, clergy, coaches, and integrative medicine practitioners.
An Effective plan for YOU and your PATIENTS
In support of the American Meditation Institute’s CME accreditation process (through the Albany Medical College), AMI conducted a retrospective case study of participants who completed Leonard Perlmutter’s Heart and Science of Yoga® course.
The findings included these positive, reproducible, long-term health-promoting changes:
“A problem cannot be solved on the level at which it appears.
It must be solved on a higher level.”Albert Einstein
You became a doctor because you care about people. You work hard and truly want to serve your patients and profession. But as a physician, you are subject to many stressors: over-work, cumbersome regulation, EMR and coding requirements, medical liability, on-call issues, lack of sleep, politics, and frustration with the reimbursement structure.
By practicing Yoga Science as mind/body medicine, you can transform stress into strength — improving your job satisfaction and work/life balance, while reducing burnout symptoms of anger, depression, anxiety and exhaustion.
The Heart and Science of Yoga® presents a comprehensive training in the world’s most effective holistic mind/body medicine and its scientific foundation. The program is designed to encourage active participant interaction by combining engaging lectures, practicums, panel discussion and Q&A. Although recent studies have demonstrated that 75% of health care costs associated with chronic diseases could be prevented or reversed by lifestyle changes, many clinicians do not offer themselves, or their patients, strategies that encourage meaningful change. This 30 hour CME course will provide easy-to-learn practices that work synergistically (within the intricate medium of the stress system) to reduce inflammation and allostatic load while working toward establishing homeostasis.
