7 Stages to Health and Transformation™ Explained

Developed by Dr. Bruce Hoffman, Medical Director of the Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine in Calgary, Alberta, the 7 Stages process begins with understanding the complex variables affecting every human life at any given time.

This unique and insightful program offers patients an insider’s view of what may be making you sick, what can be done to heal the body, and how our environment, mind and spirit can actually effect levels of health and illness. Attendance at this program is a pre-requisite to receiving health care at the Hoffman Centre for Integrative Medicine (

An Outline of the 7 Stages to Health and Transformation™

Step One – The Extended Body
The efficiency of our bodily functions is dependent on the quality of the environment with which we interact. A toxin-free environment with purified water, clean air, and vibrant, whole foods is essential to the maintenance of our health.

Step Two – The Physical Body

Our physical bodies are comprised of biochemical interactions and structural integrity. Optimization of these two components sustains homeostatic wellness. This level helps to define how our bodies respond to the six other areas of our experience.

Step Three – The Electromagnetic Body

We are electromagnetic beings constantly interfacing with environmental electromagnetic fields. Our central and autonomic nervous systems regulate and maintain this equilibrium. An increased stress response and diminished relaxation response significantly
impact the functioning of our physical body.

Step Four - The Emotional Body

Current research connects the fluctuations of our emotions and resultant neurotransmitter secretions with the efficient operations of our physiology. Unresolved emotional conflict with resultant stress can have devastating effects on our underlying biochemistry.

Step Five - The Intellectual Body

Our belief systems and internal dialogues determine our perception of our interactive world. Recent research has linked optimistic belief systems with positive health outcomes. Negative belief systems and destructive internal dialogues have been shown to
lower life expectancy and increase disease.

Step Six - The Soul Body

Transcendent to our personal experience, there is a family and collective, archetypal identity. Here our individual experience merges
with the family soul and collective unconscious. Common to all personal experiences are underlying universal themes, such as
romantic love, the hero’s journey, hubris, betrayal and the pursuit of wisdom. Identifying with these reoccurring themes and becoming
conscious of family dynamics, frees one from a sense of personal suffering.

Step Seven - The Spiritual Body

Beyond our physical experience, there is a sense of something eternal. Experiencing this state involves shifting our awareness from seeing ourselves as only a physical body with symptoms to a timeless and unbounded reservoir of pure potential. Recent research has confirmed the benefits of committed spiritual practices with improved health outcomes.
