Neuro Linguistic Programming
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the art and science of exploring your habituated thinking patterns and the associated feelings and thereby making new conscious choices. These insights will help you to access the generative potency of your mind. This new consciousness can then be applied to:
- Healing – supporting your natural healing systems to regain wellness. The academic study of the mind’s influence in supporting or undermining wellness is called psycho-neuroimmunology (PNI)
- Relationships – helping to reprogram your thinking patterns about yourself and consequently your relationships with others. Our internal ‘self-talk’ is a key element
- Joyful being – creating a powerful and meaningful attitude towards your personal relationship with the world and existence. Re-investigating your basic beliefs about life, sometimes unconscious, enables changing what we focus on – a key step to happiness
Master NLP Practitioner Dr Claudius van Wyk has practiced the discipline within the framework of holism for over twenty years. In respect of NLP applications to wellness he is a member of the Natural Healers Association (SA) as a registered practitioner of Ethno-medicine and holds a Doctorate of Science in Alternative Medicine. He holds two further Masters degrees in Applied Ethics and Organizational Behaviour.
Dr van Wyk is a recognized authority on both holistic and complexity science having published articles in, for example, the Journal of Holistic Science and contributed chapters to books such as ‘Diamonds in the Dust’, ‘Quantum Leap’, and ‘Moving Forward with Complexity: Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Complex Systems Thinking and Real World Applications’
Dr van Wyk has presented papers, facilitated workshops and addressed groups on subjects of complexity and emergence, holistic science and psycho-neuroimmunology in the United States, South America, and Europe and throughout Southern Africa.
Thinkers from the Greek philosopher Plato to the Roman physician Claudius Galen have known that if you treat only the body for disease you’ve only done half the job. They recognized the cardinal role of the mind – our thoughts emotions and attitudes – in healing. For a long time medicine has been puzzled by anomalies such as ‘spontaneous remission’ in which for example cancer tumours disappear without any treatment. And with the ‘placebo effect’ patients who have been given medicinally inactive substances (sugar pills) nevertheless show remarkable improvements in their condition.
Now the science of psycho-neuroimmunology (PNI) has found conclusive links between states of mind and the body’s natural healing capacity – all modulated by the immune system. This is why Holistic Medical Science includes working with mind-states in treating all disease – and there is a growing body of evidence showing the effectiveness of this approach.
Dr Claudius van Wyk, a registered practitioner of Ethno-medicine, is an authority on holistic medical science and has researched PNI deeply. He applies powerful NLP techniques and approaches to mind/body medicine to support patients in recovering not only to physical, but also emotional and spiritual wellness.
