Success Factor Modeling for Health, Well Being and Longevity
Living a long and vital life is a goal that most of us share. And while Modern medical science has provided much insight into the physical mechanisms of illness, physical factors are only a part of the total health process. Throughout the history of medical research, psychological factors, such as those underlying psychoneuroimmunology and the placebo effect, have been shown to be as powerful as many drugs in helping cure and control disease, and to promote longevity. Many major health problems such as ulcers, heart disease and even cancer have been linked to the effects of psychological stress. Most health professionals agree that a “positive attitude” in many cases is a major contributing factor in the successful recovery of a patient. Furthermore, when you look beyond curing illness to extending life and health, psychological processes play an increasingly important role.
Our mindset and beliefs are very powerful forces in shaping our behavior. They influence our will to live, our ability to cope with stress created by life-transitions and our ability to establish consistently healthy life-patterns. All of us have beliefs and strategies that serve as resources as well as those that limit us. Using the latest discoveries in Success Factor Modeling, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Psychoneuroimmunology to build a healthy mindset and belief system, and to transform negative inner filters into those that support health and longevity, is the main focus of this program.
SFM and NLP principles and techniques are not symptom specific. Their function is to help people clarify their dreams and desired states, to explore the communication of their symptoms and thus support mentally, behaviorally and emotionally whatever other treatments and resources they are receiving — to add choices. The basic goal of SFM and NLP in health, well-being and longevity is to create and support a positive mindset and belief system towards whatever issues related to health and well-being one is dealing with by bringing the mind in harmony with the body (as opposed to trying to impose the mind over the body).
In this presentation Robert will share some of the key discoveries he has made in modeling health and healing over the past 45 years, emphasizing the important role of beliefs in health, well- being and longevity.
