Western medicine is making huge strides in the 21st century, but alongside the technology and scientific advances, the realization is that the mind is an integral part of the body. An insight that has existed in Chinese medicine for centuries. In the last year, the combination of approaches in rehabilitation frameworks in mental health has been tried and the results are promising! Recently, an innovative project began in Beit Hanna, an all-inclusive hostel that houses people with mental disabilities and some also with physical illness, which integrates complementary medicine in the context of rehabilitation. Recently, the hostel received permission from the Ministry of Health to manage the budget in a way that allows caregivers from various fields and not only mental health and related professions - nurses, nurses, occupational therapists.
Following the budget approval, she began working on a Chinese medicine therapist who has undergone extensive mental health training in the psychiatry department at Afula Valley Hospital. The idea is the initiative of the department's director, Dr. Alon Reshef and the mental health director at Kinneret, and underpins the understanding that the body and mind are sharp. They are not separable from the mental and vice versa. Alternative medicine treatments are known to help ameliorate and reduce psychiatric symptoms as well as to treat a variety of problems associated with mental health problems - for example, sleep improvement or digestive problems, which are almost always part of the side effects of drugs. These therapies that significantly improve the quality of the importance of life of people who are diagnosed with chronic illnesses for a long time. The connection between mind and body leads to a significant improvement in all aspects and helps people struggling with mental difficulties re stockpile and forces can handle.
