Effective Alternative Health Care You Can Use at Home

Alternative health is regaining the popularity it once had. And so it should. For the most part it is natural, with no side effects, easy to use and works in accordance with nature’s laws.

Some can even be used at home, with just a little knowledge.

For too long people have believed in the knowledge of specialists, rather than their own inner wisdom. This may be the route cause of all the world’s ills.

No-one else but you knows you as well as you do.

No-one else has been with you 24/7 from the time you were born. No-one else will be with you 24/7 until the day you die.

No-one else can know what is good for you. But you’ve forgotten how to listen. You’ve ignored that inner voice for so long, you’ve forgotten it’s there. So you let other people make choices for you.

It’s easier.

It causes less fuss.

But there’s a tiny inner bit of you rebelling. Why can’t you be allowed to make your own choices in life? After all, it’s your life. Well, there is one modality of alternative health that does allow you to do just that.

Whilst homeopathy is a wonderful and deeply curative modality, it is also a complex modality to use at this level. Definitely this part should be left to those who know it well.

But on a therapeutic level, a level for purely dealing with a pain or a malady, it can be very easy to use.

So easy to use, that anyone can learn how to use it quickly and with practice.

Home prescribing with homeopathy must be one of the most self empowering and satisfying things to do in life. Although highly beneficial, not all alternative health modalities can offer this.

Imagine being in the back-of-beyond, miles from anywhere, and you get bitten by a bee. If you have your homeopathic first aid kit to hand, the likelihood of it becoming a problem is small.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night with a raging temperature. If you are able to read the kit instructions, or someone else can for you, it’s likely that you’ll find a remedy that will bring the fever down in double quick time.

Imagine you take a heavy tumble and are badly shaken and sore afterwards. With your trusty homeopathic first aid kit with you, you’ll probably be able to resolve the pain and shock within a very short period.

These are just some of the things you can resolve or help resolve if you want to practice a bit of homeopathic home prescribing.

The diversity which homeopathy has leaves all other forms of health care standing, including other forms of alternative health, wonderful though they may be.

It’s not uncommon for homeopaths to be able to completely resolve an issue which is only palliated by drugs, or even other forms of alternative health.

Alternative Health Care

With natural health products you can improve your health, immune system, digestion and strengthen your body. A majority of products carried in health stores are made from all natural products and most do not require approval of the food and drug administration. Taken by themselves for their intended purposes will usually not spark any side effects.

Most times when you aren’t feeling completely up to par you can find something to make you feel better at a health store, provided you are open to trying alternative measures for your health. That’s not to say you should shun your physician, but running to the doctor for trivial symptoms like a running nose may be expensive when a trip to the health store could provide similar relief without the similar cost.

However, some natural products may interfere with prescription drugs and prevent them from working properly or possibly negate their purpose. Before you take anything from a health store, check with a pharmacist who will know whether it is safe for you to take.

For example, a person taking beta blockers for high blood pressure are advised to steer clear of grapefruit juice. Your pharmacist will know if all natural tablets containing grapefruit oils will cause issues with your other prescriptions. Most health stores also employ experts who should be able to answer similar questions.

While visiting the health store also check into natural soaps and cleaners, in addition to shampoos and skin conditioners as many are made without harsh perfumes and other chemicals. Keeping your entire body healthy is the reason you found the health store, so take advantage of what it has to offer.

Alternative Health Care: Use the Power of Your Mind to Change the Spin of Your Chakras

Research is demonstrating the amazing power of your mind to influence both your body and the energy centers in your body known as chakras. Through your thoughts you can dramatically alter the chemicals your body manufactures. Recall a wonderful walk on the beach and your body responds as if you were there. The neurotransmitters and hormones for peace and relaxation are formed. The opposite is true. Recall something negative and your chemistry changes so that you can better handle what is interpreted as a dangerous situation.

Change the Spin of Your Chakras with Thought and Intention

Your chakras are sometimes called emotional centers in the Western world. These are not something you can see unless you are what is called clairvoyant. If your hands are sensitive you can feel them if you focus on the palm of your hand when hovering over a chakra. For instance, you may place your hand just above the center of your chest to feel the spin of your heart center.

Just as your thoughts can change what is happening in the chemistry flowing through the brain and blood stream, you can also change the spin of your chakras. When you gain experience and trust you can do this, all you need to do is form the intention to have them rotate in the correct direction. In the Northern hemisphere they rotate clockwise and in the Southern hemisphere they move counter-clockwise. If you’re watching water spin down the drain you’ll notice the same differences depending upon what part of the world you live in.

Playing with the Vortex

When I was a child watching the water go down the drain in the bathtub I used to put my finger in the vortex formed. I was fascinated. You can do the same thing with these emotional vortexes in your various physical locations within you. Place the palm of your hand just a few inches above your solar plexus area. When you experience fear you often experience pain in your stomach or have what some call “butterflies in your stomach.” This is the solar plexus emotional center.

Now imagine a clock sitting on your abdominal area. If you are in the Northern hemisphere move your hand from 12 to 1 to 2 and so on the imaginary clock. If you are in the Southern part of the world, go the opposite direction. While you’re doing this, have the thought in your mind that this emotional vortex within you will move in the same direction. With experience you will notice the difference. Soon you will be able to do this simply with thought.

You feel best when everything is flowing correctly. When your colon is backed up you won’t feel well. The same is true for the unseen energy field around and within you. If it isn’t moving in the correct direction you will experience discomfort and not even know the cause. By having all the chakras moving the correct direction you will physically feel more at ease.
