What do we need to know about how to live well?
Where does our knowledge come from?
How do we use this knowledge in our own lives?
The philosophy and programmes of the Lewis Institute for Health and Wellbeing are based on the integration of current medical and scientific knowledge and the accumulated wisdom of many cultures.
We base our work on the integration of current medical and scientific evidence-based knowledge and the accumulated wisdom of many cultures.
Established in 2003, The Lewis Institute for Health and Wellbeing fulfills its vision by providing courses and programmes for patients, the public and health care professionals; individual patient consultations; research in the areas of integrative medicine; and by promotion of the value of integrative healthcare.
To gain access to living well requires an understanding that lifestyle, health and wellbeing are intimately connected.
Our state of health is influenced significantly by our present and past lifestyle choices. We make these choices moment by moment, consciously or unconsciously.
To enhance health it is necessary to be able to make health-enhancing lifestyle choices ongoingly as part of daily living.
The essential aspect of this is mindfullness, the awareness of every part of ourselves and our connection to everything around us.
Being aware of and incorporating the Pathways to Wellbeing into your life provides access to living well. The pathways are not necessarily distinct. Where they merge, their effectiveness is enhanced.
Human knowledge and understanding is rarely original or unique. Each understanding is based on the collective wisdom that has come before.
In particular the Pathways to Wellbeing framework was inspired by our working with Neal and Carla Hoptman as well as many other inspiring individuals over many years.
