The Chopra Center’s Core Principles for Health & Wellbeing

  • Health is not simply the absence of disease, but a state of higher awareness that opens us to greater wellbeing, creativity, and joy. 
  • The role of a doctor is to support people in restoring health and balance in their lives and to educate patients to make healing choices for themselves.
  • The body and mind are inseparably connected. Both negative and positive thoughts, along with our deepest desires, create simultaneous physical reactions in the body.
  • All of the healing traditions offer valuable tools, and the best treatment is one that uses the correct tool for the task at hand, including the practices of both conventional and complementary medicine.

If you are facing a condition that you believe can be influenced by your perceptions, interpretations or lifestyle choices, an integrative medical consultation as developed by Drs. David Simon and Deepak Chopra can help you become an active, empowered partner in your healing process.

"The best use of a physician's knowledge is to teach patients how to heal themselves." - Dr. David Simon
