"Whole Health = The scientifically validated, vitality-enhancing effects on the body of alignment with the soul in nine aspects of human life—relationships, work/life purpose, creativity, spirituality, sexuality, finances, environment, mental health, and physical health. When your life choices align with the soul’s truth and integrity, your body exits the “fight or flight” state that results from betraying the soul’s truth, and the nervous system reverts to the homeostatic parasympathetic state, or the “relaxation response,” and the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms are optimized, facilitating self-repair."
