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.

Editor's Note: Dr. Marianne Marchese, Naturopathic Physician and Environmental Medicine Specialist, discusses some chemicals that we are commonly exposed to, why exactly we should be concerned about them, and how they can contribute to endocrine, neurological, and immune dysfuntions. And be sure to take notes on her Hello Kitty bottle... how to best store water (that is, in stainless steel, the Hello Kitty part is optional).

 

 

Naturopathy


by Maureen B. Roberts, PhD

Some of my most powerful soul retrieval and deathwalking work is done in dreams. In connection with my work with schizophrenia sufferers, many of whom are sensitive, brilliant and artistic young men, I recently had a Monty Pythonish dream in which a terrified teenage boy, who had turned 'mad' and run away into a dense tract of forest, was being pursued by a group of white-coated psychiatrists wielding hypodermic needles. They couldn't see him as he hid in the dense thickets, at which point I offered to find him and calm him down through shamanic intervention...

 

Shamanism


by Chakra: Vortex of Light

After you have grounded and centered yourself and are in a comfortable position, close your eyes and picture yourself. You can do this a number of ways. You can remember an actual photograph that has been taken of you and see it in your mind's eye. You can look at yourself in the mirror before beginning this meditation and recall the image of yourself. You can visualize yourself floating up and out of your body and then look down at it.

 

Editor’s note: Chakras are defined as wheels or vortexes of energy. There are seven primary chakras that flow through a human’s energetic system. It is through these seven energy centers that it is believed that vitality pulses energizing many of our physical, emotional and mental states. There is a wide literature on chakra models, philosophy and lore that underpin many philosophical systems and spiritual energy practices, religious observance and personal discipline.


 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: Although we don't get to hear Baba tell a story, this recent video of his trip to Peru reveals some lovely moments of street life and Baba's encounters with young people. Baba has a wonderful way of combining humour, song and wisdom in his performances. Audiences come away with a greater respect for the art of storytelling. For that alone, Baba's work deserves wider recognition. Learn moreabout his work by following the links to more videos by Baba the Storyteller.

 

Therapeutic Storytelling


by Debbie Drinkard-Govum

Symbols are powerful images of our deepest feelings and can provide enormous comfort during challenging times. I have always paid attention to symbols in my life but never more so than when I had breast cancer...

 

Editor's Note from Sandra Miniere: Debbie shares her personal story of courage through breast cancer and explains how three symbols gave her comfort during this challenging time. These symbols were associated with real world events and served as signs that she was not alone. They empowered and inspired her to keep going. She reminds us that we receive signs when we are facing life's challenges. It is our job to notice and work with them.

In a crisis, the dry pellets of the remedy may be dropped directly into the patient’s mouth.

If the situation does not allow for that or if you are not comfortable with a dry dosing method, simply drop 1-3 pellets into a volume of water (the exact amount is not that important). Stir or shake well...

 

Editor's Note from Cathy Alinovi: What are the logistics of giving homeopathic medicines to animals? It's not always as hard, or easy, as it might seem.

Massage & Bodywork


by Robert Field, RSHom (N.A.), CTHom

We hear so much about alternative medicine today, in the news, through friends, in health magazines and recently in the press.  There are many misconceptions about homeopathy. The most common being that homeopathy is an herb or something like a vaccination, but in fact, it is an energy medicine and works along the lines of resonance...

 

 

 

Homeopathy


by Michael B. Ellner

The National Mental Health Association lists several reasons as to why people experience negative stress in the form of depression. Some of the more common reasons are loneliness, or seasonal depression in and around the holidays. These can range from the anxiety of family tensions, work issues, financial stress, or getting over a break up...

 

Editor´s Note from Cynthia Lindner: Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD is more common in parts of the planet that receive reduced amounts of daylight during those shorter winter days. As wintery storm clouds block the sunshine of many climates, some people who are sensitive to the lack of light notice a change in how they feel.Along with the use of light boxes, many people find that using self-hypnosis and other mindful techniques helps to alleviate the "funk" of SAD.

 

Hypnotherapy

ATH Co-Editor of Sacred Living

What is our true nature?

We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves, revealing the flower within. Let peace begin with me.

 

Transformation starts with looking in the mirror at the self. It can be no other way. Simply put, taking responsibility for everything that appears in one's life, is the starting point...

 

Editor's Note from David Arenson: What is our true nature? Zen teaches us acceptance of all that is. In this acceptance, we allow ourselves to be compassionate for all things. When we feel lost,” our soul has not gone off track. It's more likely that we are totally on course and coming closer than ever to personal transformation. We come to experience wholeness by opening ourselves - “As you live deeper in the heart, the mirror gets clearer and cleaner” (Rumi) Our true nature is infinity.
