Feng Shui Insight: Healing Emotions Among Doctors and Patients During and After Treatments
This post was inspired by my a trip exploring Boston MA and stopping off at the Harvard University Bookstore in town. I made my way over to the medical collection and found a mixture of interesting reads.
There seems to be a tug of war among the up coming generations of doctors. Some thought forms are promoting the "traditional methods" while others are opening up to the understanding the importance to emotional intelligence and Feng Shui (environmental psychology) in the field of medicine and it's benefits.
There is more and more talk about integrative medicine which includes tapping into the Metaphysical components of healing and understanding that everything is interconnected. Scientific research is also understanding this includes the foods we eat, the environment that surrounds us (Feng Shui), our thoughts, spoken words (psychology), actions and habits we embrace daily to help us heal and prevent illness, and even to our genetic make up and DNA. We are stepping into a time that transcends limited thinking and boundaries when it comes to our mind and body capabilities. Yet, it even goes beyond that but for now I stop here.
An interesting book I came across is called, "What Doctors Feel." by Danielle Ofri.
Here is a fast over view:
Physicians are assumed to be objective, rational beings, easily able to detach as they guide patients and families through some of life’s most challenging moments. But doctors’ emotional responses to the life-and-death dramas of everyday practice have a profound impact on medical care. And while much has been written about the minds and methods of the medical professionals who save our lives, precious little has been said about their emotions. In What Doctors Feel, Dr. Danielle Ofri has taken on the task of dissecting the hidden emotional responses of doctors, and how these directly influence patients.
How do the stresses of medical life—from paperwork to grueling hours to lawsuits to facing death—affect the medical care that doctors can offer their patients? Digging deep into the lives of doctors, Ofri examines the daunting range of emotions—shame, anger, empathy, frustration, hope, pride, occasionally despair, and sometimes even love—that permeate the contemporary doctor-patient connection. Drawing on scientific studies, including some surprising research, Dr. Danielle Ofri offers up an unflinching look at the impact of emotions on health care.
