The word "Somiatry" comes from two Latin words: Soma - pertaining to the entire body of an organism and Iatrics - pertaining to the work of a physician or healer.
The Somiatric Mission is a nondenominational ecumenical movement of all health care professionals coming together in a common movement to heal by any means necessary and the truest means.
The Traditional Medical Mission is to save lives, cure, or at least manage disease. The continuum to the Medical Mission is the Healing Mission first initiated by Homeopathy, then Chiropractic, Naturopathy and more recently Oriental Medicine. In the past 200 plus years, the healing mission had been referred to as quackery but in more recent times has come to be referred to as alternative, complimentary and now integrative. The Somiatric mission mentored by QUANTUM~VERITAS International University Systems (QVIUS) is not to save lives, cure, or manage disease but rather enhancing health and facilitating the growth of a true and natural state of well-being by establishing an environment most conducive to an individual, placing such individual in that conducive environment and then, maintaining an individual in that conducive environment while the natural flow of nature (Physis) grows the individual into a natural state of health and wellness.
The Medical Physician endeavors to install health either chemically or surgically. The Healing Physician (Somiatrist) endeavors to grow health through and utilization of five (5) fundamental Laws of Healing.
- Structure & Function
Bio-Dynamic - Meridians, Chakras, Prayer-Medication
Bio-Chemistry - Good Food
Contraries - Medicine & Surgeries
Similars - Homeopathy
Structure & Function
QVIUS established the degree credential Doctor of Dynamic Integral Medica (D.D.I.M.) and has presented this to a select group of physicians who have taken it upon themselves to acquire such skills required to address this noble challenge and have demonstrated a willingness to function as a Servant to Humanity. This initial group of physicians also serves as a template for those to follow.
Healthcare professionals with the degree credential Doctor of Dynamic Integral Medica (D.D.I.M.) are not Medical Physicians but rather Healing Physicians empowered with the skills needed to appropriately implement the Five (5) fundamental Laws of Healing.
A true Physis Facilitating Physician holds such knowledge and skills, but during the modern industrial age of reductionism, things were reduced to its fundamental functional component and each component was assigned its appropriate place.
This greatly impacted the medical/healing community as each law became its own profession: Bio-dynamic became Oriental Medicine, Biochemistry became Naturopathy (ND), Contraries became Allopathic (MD), Similars became Homeopathy and Structure & Function became Chiropractic (DC). Somiatry represents the reunification of careers in the medical denominations and a return to the calling of the Dynamic Healing Physician (D.D.I.M), capable of competently and appropriately navigating the FIVE Fundamental Laws of Healing. Few physicians today, regardless of their calling, possess such skills.
Surgeons and Practitioners represent the skill performing component of the medical community. Unlike the skilled component of surgeons and practitioner, Physician represent a thinking element of the healing community charged with the fundamental task of assessing the state of health of an individual, determining the threat of that state to the individual, the immediate environment and the community at large.
QUANTUM~VERITAS International University Systems (QVIUS) presents the Degree Credential; Doctor of Dynamic Integral Medica, (D.D.I.M), to those who have demonstrated a competency to handle the task of a thinking dynamic healing physician. These individuals carry the QVIUS endorsement as they embark on their mission to heal humanity with the understanding that the practice of Somiatry is more than a career, it is a calling.
The Traditional Priesthood of Humanity is made up of Four (4) fundamental elements:
- Academia = the scholar called to further our knowledge and understanding.
- Healing = the physician called to oversee out state of health and well-being.
- Justice = those called to assure to all that which is fair and equitable.
- Medicine = the physician called to save lives, cure, or at least manage disease.
- Ministry = those with the calling to offer guidance as we endeavored to gain and/or maintain true fidelity with that which was, is and always shall be.
The Somiatrist as a Healing Physician is a member of the Priesthood of Humanity. Traditionally, when an individual enters a calling, their name is changed:
- Academia = Scholar = Ph.D. = Doctor
- Healing = Physician Servant to Humanity (SER)
- Justice = Attorney, Judge, Justice
- Medicine = Physicians = Doctor (Borrowed from Academia)
- Ministry = Pastor, Rabbi, Imam, Reverend etc.
The Medical Physician borrows the title "Doctor" from the Academic Scholar, The Healing Physician (Somiatrist) as a Servant to Humanity adopted its own separate and distinct title "Ser.", and is formally addressed as Ser. John or Ser. Jane. The Medical Mission is to save lives, cure or at least manage disease and endeavors to install health through chemical or surgical means. Somiatry endeavors to grow health through the appropriate application of the Five Fundamental Laws of Healing.
The mission of the Somiatric Physician presented by QUANTUM~VERITAS International University Systems (QVIUS) is not to treat, cure nor manage disease, but rather enhance health and facilitate the growth of a true and natural state of wellness.
