Holistic Medicine is a system of healthcare that emphasizes the need to look at the whole person, including analysis of physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, spiritual, social, and lifestyle values. It requires a cooperative relationship among all involved, leading towards optimal attainment of the physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of health. Holistic Medicine focuses on education and the responsibility for personal efforts to achieve balance and wellbeing.
Holistic Medicine encompasses a vast array of natural therapies that include nutrition, herbal medicine, emotional healing, bio-feedback therapies, food therapy, acupuncture, meditation, physical exercise, poultices and mudpacks, and other physical therapies, that can bring a person into a balanced state, free of disease. These therapies can be used alone, or even more powerfully, together.
A Few Secrets for Maintaining Good Health…..
Optimize Digestion and Balance pH Levels
As we age, or consume a high amount of cooked or processed foods, our digestion becomes sluggish. Many people are misdiagnosed as having acid reflux and given an acid inhibitor drug to fix the problem. The truth is that belching, indigestion, and acid reflux symptoms are a sign that there is too little acid and too few digestive enzymes in the stomach to properly digest food. When our digestion is poor we are also unable to properly assimilate key nutrients that keep our pH in the optimal alkaline range and repair bone and soft tissue. This is very important for women because if the blood pH levels are too acidic, the body will ‘steal’ minerals from the bones to buffer the acidic blood. Proper supplementation and healthy eating habits can reverse this process. Digestive health and alkaline pH levels are the keys to anti-aging and longevity.
Remove Hidden Infections
Hidden infections, including parasites, can live undetected in the body for years. Symptoms can include fatigue, brain fog, memory problems, tumors, fibroids, auto-immune diseases, and cancer. It is top priority to remove these ‘root causes’ of degenerative disease by removing the infection. Until the infection is removed, the end result of degenerative disease or cancer will continue to return. Through Holistic Medicine and Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA), hidden infections can be found and eliminated with natural herbs and nutrients.
Balance Hormone Levels
A healthy endocrine system supports whole body health as well as optimal mood and energy levels. Supporting the hormone system assures a healthy aging process free of uncomfortable symptoms…for both men and women.
Detoxify the Body
We acquire toxins in our every day lives, no matter how carefully we try to avoid exposure. Toxins from our water, foods, beauty products, and environment can suppress the normal function of the organs and glands. Their functions cannot be restored for the long term without removing the toxins themselves. With Holistic Medicine, removing toxins is easy to do, and can be maintained by understanding what foods and types of water are best for us.
Dietary fats are important for healthy DNA and cell formation. Healthy fats such as Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil, and Organic Grass Fed Butter give the body high quality construction materials to build cell walls that have ‘high fluidity’ and resist the penetration of viruses and bacteria. Inferior oils to be avoided include: Canola, Soybean, Corn and other vegetable oils. Also, never cook at high heat for an extended amount of time with Olive Oil, as it easily oxidizes when exposed to high heat. Consuming any oxidized oil can damage the cells of the body, causing inflammation and disease.
Physical Aspect of Healing:
~ Support the entire body with nutritionally dense food, in its most natural state, and free of chemicals, hormones, additives or synthetic nutrients.
~ Hydrate with water free of chemicals (fluoride / chloride) and additives.
~ Use whole food supplements at therapeutic levels, for a season, to reverse damage at organ and gland level and to nourish and rebuild. Avoid use of synthetic nutrients.
~ Clear any remaining tissue damage from old physical traumas or scars (Cation Mudpack Therapy is very helpful)
Emotional / Mental Aspect of Healing:
~ Heal emotional issues. Unresolved emotional issues often manifest as physical disease. Let go of negative or destructive thoughts and relationships. EVOX Therapy and Emotional Repolarization Technique are excellent healing tools to clear past emotional trauma. Holistic Medicine addresses all aspects of being, including emotional, mental and spiritual healing.
Love yourself!! Real healing happens from the inside out…not the outside in!
~ Create a healthy environment in which to live and work. Maintain good boundaries to honor yourself and others while on this journey called ‘Life’. Live from a place of ‘spirit’ rather than a place of ‘ego’ response.
Fact: The body, mind and spirit can heal themselves. The right environment must be provided for that to happen. It is a matter of choice…..a true gift to cherish.
