Alternative Health Therapies Can Be an Effective Method of Care For Various Illnesses and Diseases

Alternative Health Therapies are practiced all over the world by various types of health care givers, using naturopathic and preventive methods for curing various diseases, that may be either psychological or physiological. Alternative therapies primarily originated from the Indian Sub-Continent and China around 4000 years ago. From the mid-eighteenth century, during the Popular Health Movement, alternative medicine began to be widely practiced in America. Some of the common methods that were, and still are, used in alternative health therapies are naturopathy, chiropractic, herbalism, traditional Chinese medicine, aurveda, meditation, yoga, biofeedback, hypnosis, homeopathy, acupuncture, and nutritional-based therapies.

Practice of alternative medicine varies in its foundation and in its methodologies. It may be based on traditional techniques, spiritual beliefs, and even folk knowledge. Diseases like Scabies, Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High/Low Blood Pressure etc. may be cured by these alternative therapies. Psychological Disorders and also chronic diseases like cancer can be treated by the long term use of alternative medicine therapies. The major advantage of these alternative therapies is that they don’t possess as many side-effects as those evidence-based methods that use drugs and surgery. Various holistic approaches make alternative health therapies very effective. There are hundreds of universities and research centers that study alternative medicine and therapies. The practitioners of these fields are called Naturopathic Doctors. Also, there are vast numbers of healthcare centers that provide these services for those people seeking alternative health care. As every aspect in every sector of the world leads towards digitization and focusing on information technology, alternative therapies have also reached the homes of people, who may not usually have access to these treatments, through internet based health monitoring system. Numerous tools and gadgets have been invented and used for such specific purposes. Such tools have various sensors and transducers that effectively pick up slight changes in patients’ reflexes and cellular changes during monitoring. Practitioners can then examine the reports and treat accordingly. Not all alternative health practitioners will have access to all these tools and resources Neither will they all have the experience and knowledge to practice using such advanced methods, so if you are interested in remote health care and monitoring it is important to choose your alternative health care practitioner wisely and to vet their experience.

More experienced practitioner of alternative medicine use advance techniques such as Bowen Therapy, Limbic Stress Assessment (LSA) and Voice Remapping to treat their patients.

The important thing to remember about seeking alternative health treatments is that your practitioner will treat both the symptoms and the underlying causes. Alternative health therapies look to bring the body back into its natural balance by healing the mind, spirit and body. Only once this is achieved can the body begin to start healing itself.

Building Your Family’s Health Care Team

We could learn a lesson from ancient Chinese physicians. They were only ever paid if the patient was healthy. When the patient became sick, they weren’t paid again until he was well. An interesting concept, don’t you think?

Our “health care system” really isn’t about health. It’s about sickness. We wait until we’re sick and then go to the doctor to fix whatever is wrong. It’s a “sick care system”. In fact, it’s been noted that if we were to take better care of ourselves on a regular basis, we would have less incidence of colds, flu, allergies, asthma, ADD/ADHD, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, and many more illnesses and diseases. The challenge is that traditional western medicine doesn’t fulfill the need of parents to keep their families healthy – they are too overrun with the emergencies that clog their waiting rooms. As a result, many parents are turning to complimentary or alternative health care.

Parents have shown a much greater interest in integrative health care over the last decade. Creating a “health team” for their families is gaining popularity instead of relying on a single physician for all needs. The role of complimentary or holistic health care is not to focus on a symptom, illness, or disease. More importantly, the goal is to look at the overall health of an individual and assess how best to keep the person well instead of waiting for them to get sick and then treating the disease.

A July 2007 study out of “Pediatrics” followed 114 children in a pediatric out-patient clinic affiliated with a university general hospital in Quebec[1]. It was stated that 54% of these children received complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM), which included chiropractic, naturopathy, homeopathy, massage, acupuncture, Reiki/energy care, hypnosis, osteopathic manipulation, and other hands-on techniques to promote health care. The most popular forms were chiropractic, naturopathy, and homeopathy, with chiropractic used most frequently at 24%.

In 2003, a survey of 2000 parents was conducted by UCLA in association with the American Academy of Pediatrics to discover their views on preventative care for their children[2]. The study showed that while topics such as vaccinations, feeding issues, and sleep patterns were discussed, topics such as child care, reading, vocabulary development and social development were not met with satisfaction. Parents who reported that they did not receive sufficient information noted that would be willing to pay for extra care, a marker of how strongly they valued guidance on the issues.

Creating your family’s integrative health team takes work. Interviewing chiropractors, naturopaths, homeopaths, dentists, physicians, midwives, massage therapists, and other practitioners you would like to work with is a big job. Starting by choosing one and then asking for referrals to others is an easier way to build a team that you trust to take care of the health needs of your family.

Tinnitus Miracle Review – Does it Work?

This article is a Tinnitus Miracle Review and will discuss the program called Tinnitus Miracle. Does it Work? Or is it another scam to make money?

First of all, what is tinnitus? It is a perception of sound in proximity to the head in the absence of an external source. It can be perceived as being within one or both ears, within or around the head, or as an outside distant noise. The sound is often a buzzing, ringing, or hissing, although it can also sound like other noises. According to the American Tinnitus Association, an estimated 50 million people in the United States have chronic ringing, persisting for greater than six months. For 12 million people, this perceived sound is severe enough to interfere with daily activities. These people are effectively disabled by this sound to varying degrees. Furthermore, there is no cure for this noise in the ears. Rather physicians aim at improving the quality of life and lessening the impact of ringing on their patients. Since there is no clear cut treatment for it, many people find themselves spending thousands of their hard earned money in treatments that did not help or did not last.

What is Tinnitus Miracle? It is a 250 page e-book that was written by Thomas Coleman, a nutrition consultant, health specialist, medical analyst and a former victim. He, like many others, suffered years from noise in the ears and spent thousands trying to find a cure to his ringing including prescribed drugs, homeopathic techniques, and even surgery. These treatments only provided him limited relief for only brief periods at a time. His ringing would return and in fact would always come back with a vengeance. He ultimately found a way to heal this holistically. His e-book is based on his 14 years of diligent research work on proven techniques that have worked for thousands of men and women who suffer from noise in the ears. The e-book uses a 3 step multi-dimensional approach focusing not only on the body but the mind as well.

So how will Tinnitus Miracle get rid of constant noise in the ears for you? Basically, the e-book gives a wealth of information including everything you need to know about ringing and recent shocking surveys. I found that the e-book program reveals at least 27 powerful secrets that can benefit any sufferer. Some are as follows:

— Top eight best foods and top ten worst foods you should never eat when you are a sufferer
— The 1st most important element that when eliminated can virtually banish over 85% of all sufferer cases
— The most powerful homeopathic herb that can quickly reverse most sufferer conditions
— The one secret 100% natural vitamin supplement guaranteed to make a dramatic impact on your condition sometimes in a matter of days
— Medication to avoid that can worsen your condition
— Several best-kept supplements that almost nobody knows about
— Surprising personality characteristics common in most sufferers
— The link between sounds in your ears and the emotional brain and what can be done to alleviate this
— How to diagnose your condition using a multi-dimensional approach
— Breathing strategies and techniques proven to significantly help your body to start to heal itself and fight the noise in your ears
— The truth about yoga and homeopathic remedies as treatments
— The crucial link between lack of sleep, stress, anxiety, and noise in your ears and what can be done

Do I recommend Tinnitus Miracle and why? First of all, anyone looking for a quick fix solution to getting rid of the sounds in their ears, anyone looking to be told fairy-tales, and anyone looking for a “magic bullet”, pills, over the counters, ‘cure in 2 weeks’ hyped up programs should not waste his or her time with Tinnitus Miracle.

On the other hand, anyone searching for the truth about noise in their ears and alternative health and who is ready and willing to put in some work and make the lifestyle changes necessary to get rid of sound in their ears fast will find Tinnitus Miracle to be one of the best investments they ever made in their lives.

There is no cure-all medicine and in fact most chronic sufferers will require more than one approach to treating ringing in the ears. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on invasive procedures and medications that will give you side-effects, I think getting all the facts from a person who truly suffered from ringing is a good idea and definitely will not hurt. This e-book uses not only proven-to-work techniques and all natural product recommendations but also gives you a wealth of powerful information that can be used to alleviate and cure your condition. It is no wonder that Tinnitus Miracle has already saved thousands of sufferers from all over world from their annoying ringing in their ears which handicapped their lives for so long.
