Lasting Change Through Balancing the 5 Pillars of Healing
This human body is a remarkable “machine”.
Although we have been given this amazing gift, at times we do not quite appreciate the inner workings of this amazing machine. Our ignorance of these matters keeps us from becoming a “greater” version of ourselves. This is something that can be accessed through not only right nutrition and physical activity but by effectively balancing our body’s energies and through transformational mind work.
The harmony between mind, body & spirit.
Mental stress and unresolved trauma can affect the well-being of our physical body just as long-standing physical pain can manifest in mental pain or illness. Limiting mental patterns accumulated through trauma over time, creating an unconscious negative mental talk that has the ability to manifest as disease.
When we live in high-stress states for extended periods, we will end up impacting the heart (leading to arrhythmias or high blood pressure), digestion (causing indigestion, reflux irritable bowel and inflammation) and the immune function (causing colds, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis and even cancers).
Becoming conscious or aware of how our stress related emotions are pushing us into states of disease and throwing our immune system out of balance, allows us to look at how bringing a balance in the 5 pillars of healing can result in optimal health.
Radical Wellness is a holistic approach to wellness where we re-integrate the body and mind, re-programming their negative relationship and transforming it into a positive one, allowing you to experience the optimum health that you desire.
The basis of all disease is an imbalanced immune system
The immune system is key to human health and is defined as “the bodily system that protects the body from foreign substances, cells, and tissues…” When out of balance, the immune system not only fails to protect the body but can even attack it, mistaking “self” cells for invading pathogens, resulting in debilitating diseases such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Even cancers are an immune mediated disease in many situations.
Radical Wellness Program focuses on balancing the immune system by recalibrating the body’s stress response and using tools like Yoga, Meditation and Group Intention, which have been proven to have an effect on Genes and Immune function.

You must have heard the word “Radical” in relation to cancer treatment – Radical mastectomy ( breast removal) or Gastrectomy (stomach removal). Radical is a word that reflects the drastic nature of the disease and perhaps the treatment as well, in its potential to cause destruction and hopefully cure.
Another meaning for the word “Radical” in the Oxford dictionary is “Fundamental and Comprehensive.”
What is Radical Wellness about?
Radical wellness is not a magic pill. Rather, it’s a way of life! Modern-day stress, with the highly digitalised lives and easy access to “processed” foods (I call them foods with no life), set the stage for a health crisis.
At our Radical Wellness classes, we teach the fundamentals that underpin this way of life. The basis of all health and wellness starts by tapping into the inner pharmacy that our amazing body has a storehouse of. We use three tools to achieve this:
Do we have the ability to rewrite our health destiny?
At Radical Wellness we firmly believe any health and wellness reform, starts with taking personal responsibility and changing your inner environment. This inner environment can potentially influence outcomes of modern medical “treatment” – pills and procedures, that you may have been prescribed.
What does Radical Wellness involve?
Radical Wellness Program has been founded by Dr Arun Dhir, a prominent Gastro Intestinal surgeon from Melbourne. Dr Arun is a yoga and a meditation teacher himself and sees a higher purpose in his work as being a bridge between Eastern and Western modalities of healing. He is a health reformist and is a passionate educator. He writes and speaks regularly on these concepts that are reflected in his work “Happy Gut Healthy Weight” (Balboa Press 2018) and “Creating a New You – Health Journal ” (Metagenics 2019).
A typical class has four components:
- Tapping into Body Power: Yoga and breath control – 30 minutes
- Tapping into Mind Power: Guided meditation for health – 30 minutes
- Information to Transformation Session: Planting the seeds – 30 minutes
- Group Intention Healing: Focused group activity – 15 minutes
These classes are group sessions of 90 – 120 minutes duration (7.30 – 9.30 am) on a Sunday morning during school terms. They follow Victorian school term and will run on the Sundays that fall between the following dates:
|Term 1||28 January 2020||27 March 2020|

Is Radical Wellness for me?
Radical Wellness is for everyone. It is our birthright to be healthy. These classes are open to anyone who has the will to learn and apply. We live in a world where access to any sort of information is not an issue any more … however, we need courage, will and skill to put that information into practice.
That’s where I see my role as a medical professional to create a community of like-minded individuals, who create this circle of wellness by inspiring others through one’s actions and results.
We are a family of doers! So come on and join us!

Our intention is to integrate the radical wellness program with any ongoing medical treatment that our patrons may require, under the supervision of their medical practitioners. The program is an integrative approach rather than an exclusive approach, that is based on safe, professional and an evidence based approach to health and wellness. We urged our patrons to not suspend, discontinue or alter any medical treatment without the recommendation of their medical practitioners.
