Holistic health and wellness has been a growing field that has become more seeked out in recent times. There are people out there who are not feeling well, for whom conventional medicine has not been effective. Doctors are spending a lot of time treating diseases and disorders with pills and prescriptions instead of treating people and getting to know the real sources for their ailments. In history, medicine was created from what mother nature provided; sources such as the food you ate, herbs, oils, and minerals.
In today’s money driven society, the pharmaceutical industry and insurance companies are thriving from people’s ill health. So why holistic medicine? It is a way to complement your health. Your body was created to heal itself and it is fully capable of doing so in optimal circumstances. Our health is affected physically just as much as mentally and spiritually. The goal is to find a way to bring the body back to balance, and through achieving this balance, restore the body to good health and wellness. When you begin to understand the importance of treating the body as a whole, with all of its different systems that intertwine and work together, that depend on each other, you begin to see how to address underlying imbalances in the body system that have resulted in disease.
Implementing holistic tools helps rebalance and tone the body systems. These include medicinal herbs, essential oils, homeopathic remedies, vitamins and minerals, nutrition, and therapeutic lifestyle changes such as stress relief, exercise, and meditation. If we use these basic tools, we can create the perfect environment for our body, mind, and spirit to become and remain disease free.
So what would you rather put in your body? Chemicals and pills that probably don’t even address the cause of the problem, or natural substances that help your body to get back to the way it should be? If you have the same recurring issues, or general symptoms like headaches and fatigue with unknown causes, the reason for your ailment is not being addressed. It's time to hit the reset button because it is not normal to feel this way! Maybe it’s time to get a second opinion!
