The difference between what we do in a BEST office and what is done in an allopathic model primarily is that in BEST we are a coach and a teacher and the technique is secondary. BEST is a quantum technique (look for an explanation towards the end of this blog.)
In contrast when we talk about allopathic oriented practices – whether it is a chiropractor who cracks bones, an acupuncturist that does “Surround the dragon” or anybody else where the focus of treatment is alleviation of symptoms.
The purpose of allopathic treatment is not healing but “intervention”. What we mean by intervention is that a person’s life has gotten so unmanageable that it needs intervention. Some common forms of interventions are hospitalization, addiction intervention – clinics or detox center and the ultimate intervention is jail, when a person goes to jail their life has become very unmanageable.
Intervention is needed when a persons life is unmanageable or when they are out of stewardship – that (intervention and symptom management) is not what we do in a BEST practice. A person who needs intervention or management of a symptom complex needs to go to some type of an allopathic practice.
An allopathic practice is passive healing – you do absolutely nothing, you put your body there (in practice) and they do something to it (your body).
The whole focus of an allopathic practice is amelioration of symptoms, we as BEST practitioners recognize that symptoms are there and that symptoms are a wake up call to make some changes in our lives.
BEST is active healing in that we recognize that – yes, we can do a procedure that is a very dynamic procedure, it is the most dynamic procedure on the planet that I know of that can help a person heal; however if the person does not actively participate in their healthcare they will slide back into their old habits, and without taking personal responsibility they will hold someone else responsible. The thinking is that the doctor is responsible, or the government is responsible – and all of this leads to dependence on an external source and a belief that something external is responsible and build a dependency on external source (doctor, medicine, therapy etc.)
In BEST we foster healthy borders and boundaries, healthy stewardship which comes from six managing essentials choices of life in the areas of
Another difference between our (BEST) practice and an allopathic practice is that our practice is oriented towards the evolution or growth and healing of a soul and it is multifaceted. In Allopathic practice the body is looked upon as bunch of parts there is no whole at all, so you go to a specialist for your knee, your brain, your tongue, your ear, or your digestive system etc. In BEST we are holistic and quantum, we are primarily focused on the evolution of the soul and coaching of the soul, and for the soul to take charge of its choices.
Allopathic practice produces a sort of co-dependence in which the practitioner is the enabler and the patient or client is an addict. It is interesting that the word Patient comes from latin and it means “long suffering”.
In our (BEST) practice we are working with clients or practice members – people who are willing to take responsibility for their choices regardless of what was going on in their past or what is going on in their life right now that is external to them. The only way that a person can be healthy, happy and successful in their life and to create a life that they want to create is is to be personally responsible.
Bottom line is that BEST is the fastest way for a person to be coached in taking charge of their choices; and create a life of health, happiness, financial and relationship success by actively participating in making choices that lead to their desired life.
