In Book III, The Spiritual Foundation of Radiant Health, We Find Dr. Ruprecht's Integrated Approach Explained.
Our research has led us to a most amazing conclusion which should be repeated a thousand times. Most of our illness is caused by the way we feel, think, and visualize. In short, our hospital beds are filled with people whose illness is psychosomatic or spiritual in nature. This is backed up by more than 20 years of research at Harvard Medical School and George Washington Institute for Spirituality and Health.
Can we reach this apparent illness of the body which has its origin in our thoughts and emotions, with our mind? Yes, we can begin to heal this body by reaching for a deep energy source which in turn triggers each cell to regenerate. But we should know that:
1) If an illness is of the physical body, such as a vitamin deficiency, the treatment is to the material body.
2) If the real cause of an illness is psychological, then the treatment must be of a psychological nature. All other attempts cannot get to the root cause and therefore will end in failure.
3) If the cause of an illness is of a spiritual nature, consequently only the treatment to the spirit can be of use.
We are a three dimensional being and our development must take this into account. Our solemn duty is to maintain balance especially within these types of dimensions. 1) The spiritual or mental dimension; 2) the soul or astral dimension and 3) the body or the material dimension. The first is to control ones thoughts. The second to purify (edify) the soul by exercising control over our desires and temperaments and the third by harmonizing the body through a common-sense life style.
Without developing these three dimensions evenly in a parallel manner, we will only meet with partial success of realizing our goal of “radiant health”.
