The Mind-Body Connection
Our world is evolving, and some aspects of society are not keeping up. We believe the western medical system is proving to be one of the elements that is lagging behind. Yes, our medical system is exceptionally good at some areas of health like acute trauma or infection, but when it comes to chronic illness, western medicine is failing miserably. Over 40% of the population in the US have some type of chronic illness; most have no known cause or cure. This number is only on the rise with no indicators of relief. We at Orb and many others, believe that a large part of this epidemic is caused and exacerbated by the outdated theory that the mind and body are separate and isolated systems. The truth is that the mind and the body are just two aspects of a single interconnected system - one simply cannot exist without the other. To help people attain real and sustainable health, the mind-body connection needs to be acknowledged, accepted and implemented.
One of the greatest misconceptions of mind-body health is that it some how blames the person for their illness. This could not be farther from the truth. When you look at health and wellness through a whole body perspective it encourages you to honor your deepest and truest self, empowering you to see your truth. There is no blame here, only compassion, truth and the belief that you can attain all your hopes and dreams.
Learning about and personally experiencing the mind-body connection has the potential to rewrite a person's narrative about their health while simultaneously alleviating many symptoms of chronic illness. With Orb users will be guided through this process by using the first ever mind-body tracking system and strategically designed daily practices that coax our mind to accept a different paradigm: that our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs play a significant role in our physical health.
Currently, the only resources like this are expensive personalized programs offered through coaching or therapy and functional/alternative medicine doctors. Orb can not only can help those who don't have access to these modalities, but it can be a key tool for these healers to help their clients.
