Natural health options abound. There are so many available now, you can be forgiven for feeling rather confused by the different options. Which do you choose?
First, you need to recognise what it is you’re searching for. Is it for a specific problem, or just general improved health? Do you want to be able to use the chosen modality yourself as well as consult with a professional? Is it even possible? Are you looking for a hands-on modality or a hands-off?
For example, massage, reiki, bowen, chiropractic, osteopathy and others are all hands-on body work. Bowen is, in general, much more gentle than chiropractic.
Many of the body work options require you to have regular sessions, such as once or twice a week or month, depending on the nature of your health problem.
And with these modalities, you need professional help each time.
However with homeopathy, a hands-off modality of health care, you can achieve very deep healing both under the guidance of a professional homeopath and by learning to use some of the common homeopathic remedies at home.
Homeopathy is a complete and natural health care system which works by stimulating your immune system to heal you. The remedies are taken orally. They have the potential of quickly and permanently fixing your health problem many other modalities can’t.
As an example, one of my patients has found that by taking the homeopathic remedy Arnica 30c regularly, she has been able to dispense with her weekly chiropractic sessions. Her work is physical and involves a lot of bending and carrying. As a result, her back is often very weary at the end of the day.
Arnica is not only helping her healing, it is also helping to strengthen her back muscles, as she finds she needs less and less, even though her work load is the same
