naturheilzentrum bottrop: time to open up - are you ready?
news: no time for burnout - 5 tips from the naturopathic practice
"we don’t have time!" it was stefan raab who was able to make his audience laugh and think, like no one else could, with such a simple sentence. while the studio entertainer encouraged the ‘tv total’ audience to run riot and clap continuously, raab (the presenter) displayed his wristwatch several times and repeated the above-mentioned sentence to his guests, seemingly desperate for some peace.
nowadays, many People say "i wish there were 30 hours in one day"
"we don’t have time!" the sentence of his generation, which - despite all technological advances - has always conveyed the feeling that there is never enough time for anything. and yet, even more time can be taken up by what the media increasingly offers. in spite of the apparent lack of time, the clapping and bellowing continues - until the entertainer gives the signal that there should be silence.
externally controlled, time-dependent, insecure - raab has always had a talent for making use of his target group’s contradictions. like a prankster, he holds a mirror up to his own generation and simultaneously takes and gives time. this is the art of stefan raab and the secret of his decades-long success in the fast-paced world of show business.
time is cash, time is money
but it isn’t just this sentence and the distinctive voice of the inventor of the ‘wire-mesh-fence song’ or the ‘lena-meyer-landrut phenomenon’ which come to mind if you think about time. time is money, time is more valuable than gold, time is relative. there is scarcely another term that triggers off so many images in our heads like that little word with four letters does.
This is one reason why zitoun & rüger from naturheilzentrum bottrop have chosen the topic of ‘time’ for one of their well-known youtube videos. and secondly, because the use of time also plays a major role in the art of healing. because time is known to heal all wounds, isn’t it?
no time without People
let's take a closer look at the definition of ‘time’ with the naturopaths, farid zitoun & christian rüger. in addition to the physical laws on time, there are also various philosophical ways of thinking. in the so-called presentational definition of ‘time’, this is a subjective experience. a subject, i.e. a Person, experiences time in various dimensions, such as the past, the present, and the future.
in this definition, ‘time’ is thus defined by the perspective of a Person. according to augustine of hippo (http://www.hoye.de/zeit/zeit3.pdf), an ecclesiastical philosopher of late antiquity, the past exists through memory and the future through expectation.
beyond treatment or not?
in naturopathy, these two levels of time must be brought into harmony with each other. the experience of pain and helplessness awakens certain expectations and hopes for the future in patients. the more precisely the two dimensions are understood by the practitioner, the better he can avoid disappointments caused by false hope. or conversely, he can awaken new hope, and perhaps stimulate the patient's self-healing powers in the process.
that's why a particularly individual and thorough examination, in which all experiences and expectations, wishes, and hopes have been clearly and honestly spelled out, is important for a serious holistic assessment. not simply to influence possible treatment success in a positive way.
come join me!
such openness is not easy for everyone during the first consultation. especially since all the participants do not know each other well at this point in time. cultural differences also play a role. "People from the ruhr or rhineland areas are more inclined toward open and direct communication," says the alternative-medicine practitioner christian rüger. "the beginnings are often easier here."
for the many international visitors to naturheilzentrum, it can mean a great deal of relationship work to break through any experiences that they have had, and to embark on something that is new and perhaps good for them. in the process, the patients and their relatives often go through several waves of emotion in order to ultimately be able to experience positive things.
taking time for honesty
"sometimes it can also be important to find plain language for the well-being of a patient who is experiencing unhealthy treatment for a disease. everyone knows this, e.g. from their circle of friends," adds farid zitoun. "sick People need a lot of empathy and not sympathy."
getting to know each other, trusting each other, relying on one another, and gaining in confidence - all this takes time. that is why nabo (short for naturheilzentrum bottrop) hopes that you will take a lot of time for yourself, your family, and your soul, and looks forward to seeing you. you will never hear the sentence, "we don’t have time" at nabo!
