Holistic Health and Healing

Whole and natural remedies to Health and Healing


Holistic health and healing is to look at our entire being; the whole; the physical, emotional and spiritual (see mind, body spirit), then determine the best form of natural cure available using traditional and/or alternative forms of treatment.

Very few doctors or medical practitioners have licenses in all areas of holistic health and healing, mostly this form of healing requires seeing 2 or more specialist in different fields then determining a solution. Modern medicine still does not fully acknowledge the effectiveness of holistic healing, claiming few studies have been made and any success is due to the placebo effect (sugar pill).

Apart from modern medicine the following fields are considered Holistic health and healing approaches to well-being

  • Exercise, yoga, being active, general body work
  • Detoxification and cleansing
  • Dietary supplements such as herbs, natural diets like raw or organic
  • Mega vitamin therapy
  • Prayer (sole or group)
  • Emotional release or letting go classes/exercises
  • Laughter yoga
  • Energy touch therapy
  • Past life regression
  • Meditation &Visualization
  • Relaxation, rest or and vacations
  • Deep breathing and gentle stretching
  • Acupuncture, acupressure, reflexology
  • Homeopathy
  • Historical or cultural traditions (e.g., native or indigenous)
  • Massage, mud baths, sweating
  • Flotation & water therapy
  • Crystal therapy
  • Tai chi/qigong
  • Magnet therapy
  • And an endless list of individual researches with their own methods.

Some other fields, considered more alternative forms of treatment include

  • Chiropractic medicine
  • Osteopathy or other manipulative techniques
  • Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy
  • Psychotherapy
  • Iridology

These days, about 1/3 of people who undergo treatment use Holistic health and healing or alternative forms of treatment to either supplement modern medicine or replace it altogether.

The main issue with Holistic health and healing is finding the right method and practitioner to help. Each one may find something wrong with you, totally unrelated to the root cause; but that’s where you want to start.

Often to get diagnosed by conventional medicine is best, then seek alternative treatment from someone experienced in the field and near your home; word of mouth references work well. Unfortunately, due to its nature many of the so-called self-proclaimed masters (after doing a short-course) or medical personal are only in the industry for business. Some of the courses they have done to become masters are sub-standard. At the same time, some of the methods have genuine seers, who can look at your aura, eye or past life and immediately tell what is wrong. Finding these gems depends on your karma.

Where emotional blockages or releases are needed, beware to choose the right healer. If you are not able to heal yourself through self-help, then check the credentials and references of your helper. Often they don’t heal emotions; they simply replace one concept with another.

Real healing requires getting to the root cause or close to why it is we are suffering. Karma is at the base of all illnesses, second is what lesson we need to learn from it, or what gift has God given us and why. Once we understand these, we are more open to the universe finding the right cure for us.

But if we just want a quick fix without changing or improving our consciousness, then more pain may be around the corner. We have a saying in the spiritual kingdom, what we resist persists.

Regardless of how difficult, embrace your condition, accept it then deal with it. That is the best and surest way to remove it for good.
