You consist of five layers. Yep that’s right, five not just one. You have, of course heard about the body-mind-spirit approach. But what does that mean exactly? It’s a bit of an aloof concept if you ask me. It sounds good, but without breaking it down to what is exactly is it holds little juice.

Knowing these six stages helped me a lot to place where I am at on my healing journey and what measures I needed to take to get me back to perfect health.
