Those who are most successful tend to apply some of the key Holistic Healing
Fundamentals as discussed in articles on this web page and receive direct
treatments from Holistic Medicine practitioners (or perform self-treatment when
possible). While there may be occassional ups and downs (especially when
treating chronic illnesses), a successful outcome is more likely in these
Heal chronic diseases (including serious chronic illnesses)
Treat psychological disorders
Successfully treat childhood illnesses
Treat acute illnesses
Improve overall health and increase energy level
Transform one's outlook upon life
On the other hand, some persons get caught up in looking for a magic supplement
or herb or diet macronutrient proportion as their sole form of Holistic Medicine
treatment. This method tends to lead to limited success often followed
by long periods of little or no progress. The larger danger of using this
method is that the drug, supplement, herb, etc. usually doesn't heal the
condition, but instead temporarily suppresses the symptoms, and often causes
more serious health problems in the long run.
What follows are suggestions for applying the information in the Holistic
Healing Fundamentals articles.
Suggestions for Building an Effective Holistic Healing Plan
to learn more about Holistic Healing techniques.
Begin by printing out and reading through all of the
Holistic Healing Fundamentals articles. Please do not think that the
term "fundamentals" implies that these techniques are only marginally useful.
In fact, some of the most powerful techniques and processes in Holistic
Medicine are discussed in these articles.
While it can be helpful to read through all of the areas, it is important not
to try to make too many changes in a way that would add excessive stress to
your life. Also, please keep in mind that it is not necessary nor is it
advisable to "perfect" one area of the Holistic Healing Fundamentals before
considering ideas in others sections.
If you do not have a Holistic
Healthcare practitioner, it can be extremely helpful to select and
visit such a practitioner. Many diseases can be healed and many people can
transform their lives with several treatments or suggestions from such a
practitioner. There are many types of practitioners, but some of the more
common primary healthcare practitioners include Oriental Medicine
Doctors/Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners, Naturopaths, Ayurvedic
Medicine practitioners, Holistic Medical Doctors, Chiropractors and Holistic
Doctors of Osteopathy. Many practitioners would not be considered "primary"
medical practitioners but can also help a person heal and transform their
lives. Such practitioners include (but are not limited to) Homeopaths, Yoga
Teachers, Reiki Masters, Integrated Awareness practitioners, Bioenergetic
Therapists, Holotropic Breathwork practitioners, Acupuncturists, Herbalists,
etc. If you need help finding a practitioner in your area, please visit the
Directories of Practitioners Web Page.
Take classes when trying to practice new techniques like yoga meditation, qi
gong, etc. so that you learn the proper techniques and, equally important, so
that you meet new friends who are pursuing the same goals. Most people find it
far easier to keep a regular practice of a specific holistic healing technique
by attending regular classes/practice groups. The human contact, compassion,
and the non-judgemental attitude found at many of the classes can often help
"jumpstart" the healing process. Such classes can be welcome change from the
distance and coldness that is sometimes felt in society or on the Internet. You
can go to Conferences, Retreats, and Expos
Finally, please remember that you are most likely pursuing holistic healing
techniques in order to live a healthy and enjoyable life. Please
spend the majority of your time enjoying life to the fullest extent possible
while spending some time pursuing investigating holistic healing techniques.
Don't wait until you're "healed" to enjoy life.
