What we Do
MRF pursues its Mission through the following areas of activity to promote a better life for all affected:
- Care & Cure
- Training & Education
With the passage of time and development of technology the emotional gap between people is increasing. People are more connected to each other in the virtual world and less connected in the real world. This uneven change in the living patterns and conditions is creating an overall increase in the Psychological and Psychosomatic problems thus creating a need for something that can help people support themselves from within and create a self-support mechanism. With the help of our initiatives we intend to cover the global population and especially people who need special attention and care to lead a life that they desire and deserve!

Recent advances in medical research have led to a new way of thinking about health and illness. This conceptualization, which has been labelled The Bio-Social Model, views health and illness as the product of a combination of the following factors:
- Biological characteristics (e.g., genetic predisposition)
- Behavioural factors (e.g., lifestyle, stress, health beliefs), and
- Social conditions (e.g., cultural influences, family relationships, social support).
At Athoz our aim is to promote health through behavioural changes and prevent illness in other ways using a combination and analysis of these three factors. The objective is to help people lead a healthy life by facilitating positive changes in their everyday life styles. Practitioners emphasize education and effective communication as a part of illness prevention because many people do not recognize, and address, the risk of illness present in their lives which could lead to early detection and prevention. Moreover, many individuals are often unable to apply their knowledge of health practices owing to everyday pressures and stresses. Athoz aims to bridge that gap by striving to understand how biological, behavioural, and social factors influence health and illness and uses research and knowledge to promote general well-being and understand physical illness.
The experienced team of Thought professionals at Athoz is specially trained to help people deal with the physiological and emotional aspects of health and illness. We work with many different health care professionals to conduct research and provide clinical assessments and treatment services. We focus on prevention research and interventions designed to promote healthier lifestyles and we try to find ways to encourage people to improve their health and also use their skills to try to improve the healthcare system.
We aim at communicating effectively with patients in ways that overcome barriers of understanding, remembering, and implementing effective strategies for reducing exposures to risk factors and making health-enhancing behavior change. Through an astute mix of techniques and technology our team of Thought Managers investigates how disease affects individuals’ emotional well-being and what these stressors can lead them to.
We are focussed at providing therapeutic services for the patients as well as care-givers. We aim to change health behaviours for the dual purpose of helping people stay healthy and helping patients adhere to disease treatment regimens with the help of applied behavior analysis for that purpose.
Core Neuroscience Principals – The Basis of Our Delivery Model
Just as we understand that there are innate capacities of our bodies that can be trained to make us more resilient, flexible and stronger, we now know from neuroscience research that there is universal training we can experience that can cultivate and strengthen our mind’s capacity to deal with all kinds of strain and pressure. The goal of the team at Athoz therefore is to increase societal awareness while helping scientists understand how the developing brain works in order to support cure of psychological and psychosomatic problems.
The key component of Athoz Thought interventions is the concept of neuroplasticity, which is the capacity of neurons and neural networks in the brain to change their connections and behavior in response to new information. Thanks to neuroplasticity, we actually have the ability to strengthen and increase our brainpower, a liberating concept that flies in the face of the older, all-too widely held notion that a person’s mental capacity is innate and unchangeable, like height or eye color. “The more we use neural circuits, the more electricity that flows through them, the greater the neoplastic growth. Like working out physically strengthens muscles, this mental manipulation strengthens the brain’s wiring in the circuits that are exercised. These are the core abiding principals on which the Athoz’s thought interventions are based.
“Building awareness of one’s own awareness is itself a skill”. “Once people have the ability to identify their emotions, they can be taught that they can actually have a choice of what to do and how to take charge of their moods and emotions.”
