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.

Shamans have been healing the living and the dead for forty thousand years. Shamanic healing deals with the spiritual aspects of problems and illness. In the shaman’s worldview, there are basically three common causes of illness...

 

Editor's Note from Peter Clark: Soul retrieval is a central pillar of shamanic healing. Everything that a shaman does with regard to healing comes through the spirits, and this makes the process even more mysterious and ethereal than the most cutting edge high tech medical procedure. Many scientists and doctors would say that truly nothing has happened. But in case after case, distinct positive changes occur in the patient's life after soul retrieval.

 

Shamanism


 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: In "The Punishment" storyteller Linda Goodman tell of how her disobedience led to healing her relationship with her mother. Take the time to listen.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


 

With some knowledge of hydroponics, Britta Riley and her friends built a window farm in her New York apartment, but with a social media site and "open source collaboration," thousands of window farm enthusiasts from all over the world joined in building its best possible design...

Researchers from the China Meitan General Hospital have found that acupuncture, the procedure of inserting needles at specific points on the body, can help in the delivery process by speeding it up. The researchers also added that the procedure was safe for mom and the baby...

 

Editor's Note: This is a great article for people who like research studies confirming the effectiveness of acupuncture. The researchers in this study used electroacupuncture at a single acupuncture point to demonstrate that acupuncture can shorten the duration of the active phase of the first labor stage. This is great news for all expectant moms!

 

Acupuncture/TCM


by Glen Dupree, DVM

Consider the typical patient that comes to my practice from a conventional allopathic practice. These patients have usually been run through the gauntlet of reductionist medicine where they have received a separate medicine (or several medicines) for each of many diagnoses.

 

Editor´s Note from Cathy Alinovi: Each patient who comes to my office is his own set of problems and receives individual care/treatment. Not one size fits all medicine. Is this the root of single dose/single medicine - individuals?

There is a brand in the nut called a phyate, this protects the nut in nature from being eaten so that it can germinate. Phyates actually block your ability to absorb nutrients and vitamins that are in the nut because phyates inhibit digestion...

You are in a hurry.

Even when you don’t have to be anywhere, you are trying to get somewhere.

You have been trained to be in a hurry, to move fast, to get a lot done in the least amount of time...

 

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Cathy Cassani Adams reminds parents to get off autopilot and out of the fast lane in order to be with their children in a mindful way. The decision to be present without leading and judging turns any activity into a meditation. This five-minute practice enables you to feel peaceful and connect with your children in meaningful ways.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This is Part 3 of a 4-part video series on what it means to have total fitness and the steps to take to achieve it. Today Catherine talks about the belief that eating sugar is bad. She says it is okay to eat sugar. It’s the overeating of it that gets us into trouble. Listen in to hear her recipe to stop sugar cravings using fenugreek seeds, flaxseeds, and liquid chlorophyll. Also click the following links to listen to Part 1 and Part 2.

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

One of the things that is likely to happen with an intuitive gift marking is either being fully in touch with the gift and trusting your intuition or having shut it down and not trusting it...

 

 Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: This is an excellent article for those of you who are naturally intuitive. Sometimes people fear the fact that they're intuitive and don't know how to handle the intuitive information they're given. This article helps provide clarity for just that. A very informative and important article for intuitives.

 

Intuition & Symbols


by Dr. Ram Mani Bhandari

Ayurveda explains this through the concept of daily dosha cycles: vata, pitta ,and kapha are each at their peak during certain times of the day. Ayurveda divides the 24-hour day into the of following time periods (they are approximate because they depend on the season and geographic location): The Daily Lifestyle Regimens are based on this concept...

 

Editor´s Note from Sonica Krishan: This is an interesting article shared with us by Dr Ram Mani Bhandari, where the author tells us how Ayurveda wisdom of Dosha philosophy helps to make us aware about whether our dosha imbalance relates to the time of day. For example if you find it difficult to say awake in the morning without cups of coffee, it could be because you have been rising late-during the lethargic kapha time.

There he was as we were about to leave the store. A little guy about three years old, cute as could be, coming up to the counter with a Klondike Bar in his hands. Coming up to the counter doesn’t exactly describe it...

 

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Denise Hedges relates a delightful story of a small boy's excitement over buying and eating ice cream to adults becoming jaded and apathetic in pursuit of their dreams. After years of disappointments and having our Klondike Bar taken from us, we stop wanting and expecting more. We go numb to the feelings of excitement and anticipation. Denise leaves us with a valuable life lesson on how to get the joy of the three year old back into our souls and lives.
