Psychosomatic Chronic Diseases
Throughout the 21-day intensive program, we help participants with chronic diseases, such as cardiac problems, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, psoriasis, arthritis and digestive disorders. Clients identify and resolve inner conflicts or negative emotions, which contribute to the disease itself. Using yogic practices we teach our patients how to reduce stress and experience their own healing power without changing the environment around them. Join us in this journey of self-growth, healing and self-discovery.
Chronic Solutions was created based on the philosophy of empowering people with yogic tools to connect with their inner healer. Our approach to health and recovery is to first address the psychosomatic causes of the diseases, not only the symptoms. Research shows that most psychosomatic chronic diseases are caused by stress, destructive lifestyle, lack of mind management and unhealthy diet. Most of these can be arrested or even reversed with the right approach and with yogic tools. Ninety percent of the participants are able to improve their health anywhere from 50 to 100%. Join us for the experience of a lifetime.
We help participants recognize the effects of negative thought patterns as well as the tools to manage and change their mindset. Our patients return home with a spark in their eye and a spring in their step, empowered with new beginnings in life.
The program assists patients in preventing or managing chronic diseases and finding the healer within. We work towards teaching patients how to deal effectively with stress without having to change the immediate environment.
The philosophy of yoga sees human beings as existing on many systemic levels: body, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual. Yoga therapy addresses all these levels through many evidence-based tools that we teach. The participants go back with individualized programs, that they can practice every day.
Chronic Solutions Changes Life
I had decided to attend the three week course in October 2014 run by Lee Majewski at Kaivalydham in India South East of Mumbai as I was recovering from some severe arthritis following a period of feeling really unwell after food poisoning in Sri Lanka. Well, that was one demonstrable symptom but perhaps also, just getting older was another, having passed my seventy second birthday and deeply conscious that for the last lap of this race we all run, I needed to pay closer attention to my body and to my mind. I had at that stage not really thought about my heart.
It was Sep 2015 and I was just 35. I had a high paying corporate job, a beautiful 6 year old and a super supportive husband. The only issue was I had extreme pain in my heels, which made it very uncomfortable for me to stand and walk. I went to a few doctors and they recommended vitamins, a few gave steroid shots…Nothing helped… I was required to travel as a part of my job and this agonizing heel pain made it very difficult to work. My ambition didn’t allow me to slow down.
