Healing has many facets, and more often than not, Western medicine, with its one-size-fits-all approach can’t provide all the answers. Through the work of two renowned doctors, we explore the four pillars of holistic and alternative healing.=


In 1997, Dr. Leo Galland published a book called “The Four Pillars Of Healing,” where he identifies triggers to illnesses. Called the mediators, they can occur in biochemical (e.g., stress hormones), physical (e.g., toxins and drugs), and cognitive (e.g., social distress and anxiety levels) levels.

Nearly 20 years later, the neuroscientist and doctor Dr. Joe Dispenza has been sharing with modern society that neuroscience, epigenetics, and quantum physics combine together can offer healing solutions to modern-day illnesses. So let’s explore the pillars of healing according to them.


We Are Influenced By External Environment

How do you respond to your external environment? Things that happen to you beyond your control, such as the weather, how people treat you, the traffic jam? Do you tend to get stressed out easily?

We live in a hectic society that most often than not, we can’t control what’s happening around us. What’s up to us is how we respond to it. The environment we live in has the power to influence the way we feel, think and act. Whether your reaction and emotion towards it are going to be positive or negative is up to you.

Thoughts are powerful, and they can determine the way we feel. But, according to Dr. Joe Dispenza, our thoughts can make us sick. Living under stress can knock the body out of balance. And what Dispenza calls types of stress is what Galland calls the mediators.

Stress hormones like cortisol punch the immune system, which leaves the body vulnerable to create disease. Stress hormones make most adult diseases -95% of the people in the world have a stress-related disorder. Only 5% is genetic.


Taking care of your internal environment means many things, but you can start by becoming aware of what kinds of thoughts, emotions, and reactions you’re more prone to engage in.

Thoughts Directly Affect the Body

Dr. Joe Dispenza is quite emphatic on that. As we discussed on the previous point, you’re what you think, literally. The way we think affects our bodies and life.


In his own words, “Your every thought produces a biochemical reaction in the brain. The brain then releases chemical signals that are transmitted to the body, where they act as the messengers of thought. The thoughts that produce the chemicals in the brain allow your body to feel exactly the way you were just thinking.”

Dr. Leo Galland talks about the importance of a healthy diet and physical activity and how these things play an essential role in our overall health and healing process.


Nonetheless, this could be a no-brainer to many of us. The most interesting distinction Dispenza makes from Galland, in this case, is that you can be the healthiest person in the room- eat organic, follow a WFPBD, exercise- what if you do all those things. and still be a negative, judgmental, anxious, aggressive (insert the emotion here) kind of person? Will organic broccoli make a difference in your energetic field and bring peace of mind? Moreover, will that bring the ultimate healing you’re searching for?

There shouldn’t be a black or white approach to this topic, but one should try and find a balance between them.
