As people across the globe start to research factors which contribute to their health, or lack of, the attributes of alternative medicine is causing its return in a big way.
People are returning to alternative medicine in their droves.
Finally, people are taking an interest in their own health. No longer is it acceptable to give your power to someone else. No-one else but you has the same interest in your health.
A health practitioner may have twenty four PhDs, but you’re the only person with a PhD in you. You’re the only person who knows your sensitivities. You’re the only person who knows how you react.
Thanks largely to the internet, people are now researching possible side effects of the medication they’ve been given. Then they return to their GP with this information, who often, had no idea of it.
That’s a worry in itself.
Now consider the time most alternative medicine practitioners give you. Instead of the six (ten if you’re lucky) minutes you have with your GP, you are given time to express yourself freely, you are listened to. You direct the consultation.
In almost all cases, you come out of the consultation feeling you have been heard, that someone has taken a deep interest in your troubles. That alone can go a long way to your improved health.
In addition, your health is being helped in a time honoured way, assisting your intelligent body to achieve what it knows is best for you.
Instead of suppressing the symptoms, which goes against what your body naturally desires, alternative medicine allows the full expression of these symptoms in a safe and healing environment.
Symptoms are signals that your body is struggling with something. Suppress them at your peril! They have a valuable message that you need to address.
For example, being able to sleep deeply, waking up refreshed, is a sign of good health. If you are unable to sleep without sleeping pills, you are, in effect, sitting on a time bomb. The reason for the insomnia is not being addressed. In fact the cause is becoming more entrenched.
The use of sleeping pills on occasion can be useful. But the daily or regular use is dangerous.
Once you are in control of your health, you feel empowered. Gone is the ease with which you could be manipulated through fear of potential risks. Now you know how to become healthy and to stay that way.
All alternative medicine modalities have their place, but my three favourites are:
- good food, natural diet
- cranio osteopathy
Subscribing to an ezine in natural health can show you options you may not be aware of. There are always many ways of looking at any problem. Don’t limit yourself.
Look over the edges of the rut you may find yourself in. At first glimpse it may look overwhelming, but with each new look, you can start to see a better world for you.
Take control of your health today, so stopping others manipulating you for their own ends.
