What is Modern Vital?
Welcome to the #modernvital tribe!🙂 We’re a dedicated and passionate group of individuals who have experienced the 🌱 healing power of nature🌱 in our own lives or in the lives of our loved ones. We know there is another way, an ancient yet deeply modern way, a seemingly subtle yet biologically programmed way, of health and healing, another paradigm of healthcare.💚
Modern Vital is a way of health and healing that is aligned with, resonates with, and respects the laws of nature🌲, and celebrates the healing power of nature, or the vital force. About twenty-five hundred years ago, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, coined the expression, the vis medicatrix naturae, which means “the healing power of nature.” Vitalism, while robustly grounded in the sciences and though sharing disparate elements with other traditions of health and healing, is not an alternative or integrative healthcare model, nor a type of diet, but rather a model of healthcare in which traditional naturopathic medicine, a distinct branch on the tree of the healing arts, is most firmly rooted. Though an inclusive model of healthcare, vitalism stands like a great oak whose roots reach back millenia into all ancient healing traditions.
Modern Vital is a tribe of vitalists from all over the world🌎 who celebrate the healing power of nature: healthcare experts who share🙏 their knowledge and insights into health and healing, and people who share their healing journeys so that humanity may benefit. The mission of Modern Vital is to elevate the health and well-being of all humanity.
We have experienced first-hand our own journeys🌋 of healing which have been and are aligned with the laws of nature, whose origins may have been physical, mental, emotional, or even spiritual in nature. The din of our chorus has only grown louder. And we’ve declared that we’re ready for something new and different, something ancient yet modern, in healthcare. Some call it naturopathic or vitalistic medicine, or evolutionary medicine, while others call it ancestral medicine, or even functional medicine or integrative medicine. One thing is clear: It’s NOT allopathic medicine.
Every aspect of the natural and health sciences, every day, from epigenetics to quantum mechanics, is catching up with and validating what the ancient healing traditions have comprised for centuries. Modern medicine, on the other hand, has only been around a couple of centuries, and is just beginning to incorporate modalities such as herbal medicine and acupuncture into its armamentarium. Somewhere at a juncture in our own healing journeys, we realized that if we continue down the same healthcare path as we currently tread, then technology will become but a barrier to rather than a tool of human connection. We at #modernvital use technology to our advantage, as a means of connection, rather than separation. We are united in our purpose, which is to elevate the health and well-being of all humanity, and to share our knowledge and journeys of healing with each other and with the world, so that all may benefit. Modern Vital empowers you to experience a longer, healthier, more rapturous, and vital life.
Use the hashtag #modernvital on social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) so that we can find you and share your stories, your journeys of healing, with the world. Be the change that you want to see!🙏🌍💛
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” – Joseph Campbell, mythologist and inspiration to George Lucas' Star💫 Wars
