- Holistic Diagnosis.
- Understand the importance of good nutrition.
- Understand the role of exercise in staying healthy.
- General health management for clients / friends.
- Understand the link between the spiritual healing and physical and mental health.
- Practise of basic emotional injury alleviation.
- Learn how to self-heal and teach it to others.
- Working with the three bodies – physical, spiritual and soul.

The PASCAS HEALTH MATRIX melds allopathy (western) medicine with complementary (alternative) therapies with continual blending of advanced practices and sciences, all contributing to the objective of treating the cause more so than the symptoms, with the patient / friend being responsible for their own health management programs.
PASCAS continues to draw on teachings, innovations, sciences, protocols and revelations to support health management programs and deal with diseases that are decidedly difficult to manage – all with a focus on the delivery of services in remote and emerging economies at relatively low costs.
The following information is a general introduction into various styles and systems of holistic health management – all practices have something to contribute. It is PASCAS’ agenda to focus on those practices with the highest level of efficacy and appropriateness for desired health management programs.
Through the diagnostic streamer, patients / friends are able to obtain an understanding of the health care programs available and resolve the program to be supported by the management of the streamer and his team.
Integrated health management helps stem rising health costs:
Today, virtually everyone suffers from continually rising health care costs and related medical care concerns -- but each person does so in different ways.
The good news is that developing an integrated health management system is not that difficult, time consuming or costly. Ideally, a champion is identified to lead the process of identifying health-related goals and objectives. This champion oversees the process of conducting a complete inventory of all the services the community requires. The next step is to consider how these various services can be maximized. The firm or community constructs a matrix of the current services and identifies areas of overlap and duplication. To do this the company must ask tough questions. Are members / employees using these services consistently and effectively? Are they even aware these services are available? Is the consumer getting what it needs to pay for?
The final step on the drive toward integrated health management is to set up a structure for collaborative planning and ongoing communication. This will allow all health functions to become fully aware of what each is doing and to determine how they can work together to reduce duplication, complement each other and reduce costs.
To create and implement a true integrated health management approach, an organization must eliminate the silo-based organizational structure and present "one face of health" to the employee or member. Everyone works together to maximize the investments being made to maintain and improve the health of employees and community members. Given the critical importance of a community's human capital in today's complex and costly health care environment, an integrated health management approach is the only way to accomplish this.
Can the results of this integrated approach be measured? Is there any hard data on the results that an integrated health management program can achieve? The answer is a resounding YES. One of the most well-respected names in the health care products industry, Johnson & Johnson, integrated its various health and wellness programs in 1995. As part of this integration, Johnson & Johnson offered every employee a US$500 health benefits credit in exchange for completing an annual health-risk assessment before enrolling in the plan. Ninety-one percent of domestic employees signed up. After the program had been in place for four years, Johnson & Johnson retained an outside health information and research company to evaluate the results.
The study found:
- Medical care costs decreased by US$225 per person per year due to lower administration and medical utilization costs -- a total saving of $8.5 million over the four-year period. The study showed savings grew over time and most savings came in the third and fourth year of the program.
- For high-risk employees who reduced their risks (ceased smoking, lowered cholesterol, etc.) the savings were US$390 per year. Current costs suggest current savings would be triple these levels.
Other major corporations are in the process of measuring the results of their health care integration and risk-assessment programs. The bottom line is that these relatively easy to implement programs pay off both in terms of everyone’s own cost structure and bottom line, and in terms of improved employee health, morale and productivity. They work for small to mid-sized communities and companies as well as large organizations.
