Zaidi Institute Of Holistic Healing – ZIOHH – is a holistic healing center online. Founded by Dr. Sarfraz Zaidi, MD, this online holistic healing center is based on his in-depth medical knowledge, vast clinical experience, and personal enlightenment.
What is Holistic Healing?
Holistic healing takes place when you treat the person as a whole. It has three basic components – mind, body, and spirit. 1
Is Holistic Healing Spiritual?
Yes. But in a non-religious way. Spiritual healing is one the three basic components of holistic healing, mind and body being the other two.
Does Holistic Healing Work?
Yes, but only if it is done right. The holistic healer must understand the principles of healing, not just in his mind, but as a whole – in his mind, body and spirit. In addition, the healer himself must be a living example. Only then it works.
What are ZIOHH Principles of Holistic Healing?
Here are the basic principles of ZIOHH:
- Health consists of spiritual, emotional, and physical well-being.
- For every disorder there is a root cause. You cannot cure a disease until you treat it at the root level.
- Listen to your body every day. It will tell you what is right and wrong with it.
- Chronic diseases occur when you do not pay attention to your mind, body, and soul for a long time.
- Every person is a unique individual. In contrast, modern medicine suffers from extrapolations, assumptions, and concepts. But diseases do not read books, only physicians do.
- Diseases arise due to lifestyle factors in a genetically predisposed individual. Since you cannot change your genetics, you must pay attention to your lifestyle factors
SNEVM – 5-Step Practical Approach to Holistic Healing
Here is an outline of Dr. Zaidi ‘s approach to holistic healing.
- Stress Management
- Vitamins/Herbs/Essential Oils/other natural remedies
- Medications/Surgery/Procedures only when necessary
How SNEVM Works in Real Life
Dr. Sarfraz Zaidi applied the SNEVM – holistic approach on himself and saw its effectiveness. Here is his story. He was diagnosed with C. difficile colitis and ulcerative colitis when he turned fifty. Initially, he faithfully followed the medical advice from his gastroenterologist over a period of two years. But he was still struggling despite being on steroids. At that point, his gastroenterologist wanted to place him on Remicade, a heavy-duty immunosuppressive drug. But Dr. Zaidi did not want to go that route. Instead, he took the matter into his own hands. Zaidi would explore natural ways to heal his colitis. During this process, he transformed into a holistic physician.
Holistic Approach to Diabetes
Dr. Zaidi applied his SNEVM – holistic healing approach in his clinical practice and saw amazing results. For example, diabetics were able to control their blood sugars much better. Many were able to discontinue insulin and also cut down on their oral anti-diabetic medications. After seeing such extraordinary results, Dr. Zaidi, decided to shares them with other doctors as well as diabetic patients. Therefore, he wrote a diabetes book titled, “Reverse Your Type 2 Diabetes Scientifically.” In this book, he includes actual case studies to document that holistic healing does work in the real world. This book is helping diabetic patients worldwide.
Holistic Healing For Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Once on the SNEVM – holistic healing approach, patients with hypothyroidism got their energy back, lost weight and no longer had brain fog. In addition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis resolved in a number of patients. Exited with these results, Dr. Zaidi decided to shares them in his book, “Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis,” which also includes actual cases from his clinical holistic practice. This book is helping patients all around the world.
Holistic Approach to Graves’ Disease
As an endocrinologist, Dr. Zaidi saw a lot of patients with Graves’ Disease. Most endocrinologists use Radioactive Iodine to ablate an overactive thyroid gland, but Dr. Zaidi realized it was a very superficial approach. While radioactive iodine does get rid of an overactive thyroid state, it does not address the underlying autoimmune disorder. Quite often, concurrent autoimmune eye disease gets worse. Additionally, most patients who receive radioactive iodine end up having another disease, hypothyroidism – underactive thyroid for the rest of their life. Then, their physicians put them on Levothyroxine. But patients continue to struggle with weight gain, fatigue, foggy thinking and other manifestations of hypothyroidism.
Using his holistic healing approach, Dr. Zaidi ushered in a completely new treatment of Graves’ Disease. The results have been truly rewarding. All of his Graves’ Disease patients (except one) did not need radioactive iodine. They all have been cured of Graves’ Disease, documented by antibody testing. Dr. Zaidi shares his holistic treatment of Graves’ Disease in his book, ” Graves’ Disease and Hyperthyroidism.” This book has helped thousands of patients all over the world.
Is it possible to practice ZIOHH – Holistic Healing in everyday life?
Dr. Zaidi (and his patients) is living proof that holistic healing principle of ZIOHH can be implemented in everyday life. Zaidi truly enjoys spiritual, emotional, and physical health. See how he practices it:
Freedom from Stress
It all started when Dr. Zaidi turned 50. One day, while pondering over the root cause of stress, he was struck with enlightenment. A deep wisdom sank in. He had discovered the root cause of all emotional sufferings. He calls it Acquired Self. Freedom from the Acquired Self equals freedom from emotional stress. Since that day in the park, an immense wisdom kept coming naturally. And he kept writing it. Later, he published this book with the title “Stress Cure Now.”
Dr. Zaidi lives a life free of emotional stress. He is free of fear, disappointments, frustrations, anger, hate, jealousy, greed, guilt, boredom, paranoia…..
Dr. Zaidi realized he had to cook his own food – and even grow it – to nourish his body in a healthy manner. Now, he usually prepares his own food and uses mostly organic food items, some of which come from his home garden. He loves gardening and grows his vegetables and fruits. Cooking and gardening also helps him to stay in the Now and free of stress.
Exercise, Rest, Sleep, and Sex
Dr. Zaidi listens to his body. He wakes up around 7 am and goes to bed around 10 PM almost every day, even on the weekends. Zaidi uses his computer for a couple of hours in the mid-morning and afternoon. He practices yoga and goes for a walk in the neighborhood once a day. At the age of sixty five, he stays sexually active with his beloved wife.
No medications for Dr. Zaidi. At the age of 65, he is in excellent health. He has no chronic medical diseases. Hence, no long-term medications. Once in a while, Dr. Zaidi does have his share of medical issues. During this time, he may use medications for a brief period only. At the same time, he uses his ZIOHH principles to find the root cause of the illness and cures it from there.
Simplification of Lifestyle
Despite the inner shift, Dr. Zaidi continued to live his outer life – family, friends, medical practice – but in a modified manner. Dr. Zaidi recognized the difference between what is necessary and what is unnecessary. Subsequently, he simplified his life. For example, he decided to cut down his practice to 20 hours a week. As a result, he had more time to spend with his patients and teach them his holistic healing approach – SNEVM.
At home, he became more joyful: occasional skirmishes with his wife came to an end. The need for entertainment activities – TV, newspapers, movies, sports, travel, chitchatting – was not there anymore. When COVID-Pandemic hit in 2020, Dr. Zaidi’s emotional, spiritual and physical health remained stable, thanks to his ZIOHH principles. He was already enjoying a simple lifestyle: free of partying, leisure travelling, and the rat-race of money and fame.
Experiencing the Divine
One day he was having lunch alone at a restaurant, keeping his attention in the Real Now, when he experienced Real God. Afterwards, a floodgate of spirituality opened. He described it in his non-religious spirituality book, “Wake Up While You Can.”
This is ZIOHH, in short
You can enjoy a physical, emotional and spiritual health if you use common sense and modify your lifestyle. When any illness strikes, you can get rid of it through SNEVM – holistic healing approach.
