STRIVING FOR STILLNESS: How Hypervigilance for Symptoms and Success is Making Us Sick.
John El-Mokadem was highly driven in all aspects of his life – fitness, career, relationships, etc., and believed his success in all these areas would be directly proportional to the amount of time he thought about, and worked-on, his goals. After a viral infection evolved into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (A.K.A ‘Myalgic Encephalomyelitis’,) John approached his illness with the same vigilant formula he had for success in life. After 7 years of struggling to regain his health, his vitality, his marriage, John followed the breadcrumbs laid by mentors that led him in a different direction – inward; and it was this change in direction that not only led to the recovery of all that he had lost, but also put him in the unlikely position to help countless others recover their own health. In this podcast interview, listeners will discover that the vigilance with which we approach illness, and life in general, is the very thing that can cause us to be sick. In this course you will hear John El-Mokadem talk about his experience and the research that he and partner Karen DiMarco conducted to prove the methodology for their own recoveries and others (published in the APA Journal: Spirituality in Clinical Practice). It offers nurses a whole new way to think about ‘The Foundation of Health;’ how what goes on in our heads has a profound effect on our biology, our immune system, and our body’s innate ability to achieve homeostasis and heal.
