Alternative, Holistic, Natural & Spiritual Healing Methods

All Things Healing"All Things Healing" is obviously a comprehensive topic. Though many people immediately think of holistic healing and the various currently popular methods of alternative healing it can also include such diverse topics as planetary healing (ecology, use of Green products etc.), social healing (building communities, conscious use of our financial resources etc.), mental healing (psychological and psychospiritual perspectives, spiritual healing practices ), healthy lifestyles (exercise and fitness, diet, healing recipes etc.) and healing through the arts (use of art, poetry and multi-media for healing).

 

Holistic healing also utilizes alternative healing medicine that complements conventional medicine by helping medicate your body holistically and introducing wellness to your mind and spirit as well. We at All Things Healing (ATH) have gathered information about various types of alternative healing methods for the betterment of your whole being. We have brought together a team of highly-skilled and dedicated people to help you improve your overall wellness and outlook. We also have articles, videos, and more about natural healing practices and alternative healing methods to help ensure the complete well being of all our readers.

 

When some people hear the term holistic healing, they immediately think of faith healing. However, spiritual healing is not faith healing. Faith healing requires a person to have belief in a certain god or deity. Spiritual healing, on the other hand, involves alternative healing methods that guide healing energy to improve a person's body, mind and/or spiritual health. These practices need the help of a healer to help you channel your energies.

 

To Improve Your Body

Our website concerns natural healing and alternative healing methods and is meant to help people recover from illness or injury and to live a generally healthier life. Our highly qualified editors seek out and gather all types of useful information on healing a patient's body and replenishing the energy that has diminished due to sickness or illness. Our holistic healing therapies, along with alternative healing medicine, help a patient recover from sickness faster and maintain overall health. Acupuncture, for example, relieves some of the symptoms of breast cancer and also alleviates some side effects of cancer treatments.

 

Alternative healing, however, is not only for people recovering from sickness. We put a strong emphasis on preventing sickness and disease. The information on our website can help you identify the parts of your body that need to be taken care of and will recommend the holistic healing method and alternative healing medicine that is perfect for you.

For Your Mental Health

We at All Things Healing believe that we must also pay attention to our mental health to ensure complete wellness. In order to have a better outlook and general attitude, we recommend alternative healing methods that can greatly improve a person's disposition. Yoga, for instance, is not only used to improve the quality of our bodies, it can help us relieve our stress by helping us relieve our stress by helping us to focus on our breathing. Other spiritual healing techniques that we recommend, like meditation and music therapy, encourage positive thinking and enable you to handle everyday stress easily. Our website provides information that helps you learn how to focus your mind to release stress and achieve your goals.

 

For Spiritual Growth

Our spirit is what links us to people around us and to the world. Holistic healing and alternative healing methods help people become aware of their feelings and other people's feelings as well. These techniques enable us to be more conscious of the world around us and other people's needs. Spiritual healing is all about achieving oneness with the universe.

 

Spiritual healing is different for each person since we all have different spiritual needs. Our contributors at All Things Healing are highly qualified and deeply passionate about educating our readers concerning the ways to spiritual progress. And, since everybody's healing process is intensely personal, they help guide each person through his or her spiritual development.

 

To Protect Our Planet

We at All Things Healing believe that in order to achieve wholeness, we must also take care of the one thing that sustains all life: earth. The ATH community promotes purchasing of organic products like food, toys, and clothing to minimize and altogether prevent the damage done to the earth.

“There is a moon inside every human being. Learn to be companions with it.” ~ Rumi

In finding mindful and effective solutions for anger and jealousy, it’s important to confront these stark emotions head-on with courage and fortitude...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: Jealousy is an expression of the ego. What we believe that other people ‘have’ is actually an illusion. Anger can be life-saving. When out of balance, it becomes corrosive and destructive. When one works on inner change, both inner and outer worlds change. So when we can resolve our inner world, we find our outer world will change too. Our lives will begin to reflect what we truly desire.

Editor´s Note from Karen Stabley: This is political satire art about the development of Suburbia and conformist middle-class ideals. There are references to "little boxes" of different colors which refer to suburban tract housing. Nancy Reynolds is the artist/songwriter and political activist who wrote this song in the early 1960's when she saw the housing developments around Daly City, California. Her daughter describes the creating of this piece, "My mother and father were driving South from San Francisco through Daly City when my mom got the idea for the song. She asked my dad to take the wheel, and she wrote it on the way to the gathering in La Honda where she was going to sing for the Friends Committee on Legislation. When Time magazine (I think, maybe Newsweek) wanted a photo of her pointing to the very place, she couldn’t find those houses because so many more had been built around them that the hillsides were totally covered.

 

Arts & Art Therapy

We all occasionally have glimpses and experiences of enlightenment, experiences of awe and grandeur in observing a sunset or listening to a symphony, of unconditional love for a partner or newborn baby, of gratitude in surviving an illness or accident, and of pure joy in just being alive. But we rarely recognize these glimpses as reflecting our enlightened nature because our illusory ego, which is what we have been socialized and conditioned to identify with, takes credit for them...

 

Meditation


by Melody Larson

We thought the adventure was over—we set out from the tribe, found ourselves, and returned triumphant, creating a satisfying life for ourselves. But now we discover that there is much more to the journey...

 

 

Editor's Note: To first get an overview of what this journey is all about, read Melody’s introductory article, The 12 Steps of the Spiritual Journey.

 

 Astrology


 

Editor's Note from Sherri Carter: WOW! Just WOW! This is a must see, especially if you have a son. It reminds me of the quote "the way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice" by Peggy O'Mara.

When we hear the word “muscle,” we generally think about the biceps, triceps, glutes and shoulders. But there’s an overlooked area of the body that deserves some much-needed attention: Your feet. Think about it: Your feet are the foundation of your body and your life. Whether you’re an elite athlete or an occasional walker, your feet are responsible for carrying you everywhere you go in life...

 

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Pauline Oliveros

Listening is a multi-dimensional dynamic process. Ways of listening are many fold. These ways of listening are based on experience, habit and training...

 

Editor's Note: Are we really listening to our surroundings? How can we each listen to heal ourselves and to inject some calmness into our busy lives? A most refreshing and poetic entry written by Pauline Oliveros.

 

Music Therapy & Sound Healing


 

Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: I've always been fascinated by the Easter Islands.  In this short video you can see the magnificence of it and how incredible the statues are when a human being stands next to them. Amazing...

Low back pain is a common problem that can be helped with a combination of self-care, soft tissue treatment like medical massage therapy and Breema bodywork...

 

Author's Note: The causes of low back pain are as numerous as there are backs! The good news is, a skilled massage therapist is often able to help relieve or even resolve the issue. Find out how emotions can even be the cause of that nagging discomfort.

 

Massage & Bodywork

I often have people ask me about Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). I find that many individuals get this disorder confused with what is called Bipolar Disorder. The two names sound similar, but these two mental health disorders are very different. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a personality disorder and involves “a pervasive pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, and affects, and marked impulsivity beginning in early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts...”


Editor's Note:
Borderline Personality Disorder and Bipolar Disorder are often confused. For more information please visit http://www.nmha.org.

 

Psychotherapy

Eat less and exercise more.


Is this what you hear often?

 

You’ve worked out on the bike for the last 6 weeks and instead of losing weight you gained 5 lbs. You feel your metabolism fell asleep...

 

Editor´s Note: This article explains the effects of acupuncture on weight loss. I've found in my clinical practice that acupuncture helps a lot with cravings, improves digestion, and decreases stress. As the author explains, acupuncture is a small piece to the bigger puzzle of lifestyle, diet, and exercise changes. It is a great tool for overall health!

 

 Acupuncture/TCM


 

Editor's Note: Milky oats—oats picked in the milky stage—and oatstraw are considered nervines and are specifics for someone who’s exhausted from stress or prolonged illness. Oats are also considered nutritive, and so may be too sweet for some and too damp for those with kapha constitutions. If doing something I know to be inherently stressful (e.g., a long drive or something mentally taxing), I like to make an infusion of milky oats—about 1 tablespoon to 1 cup of hot water. I usually make a quart and drink it throughout the day. Herbalist Susun Weed also suggests oatstraw baths to provide bone support...
