There are many ways to treat a drug addiction, with one of the most effective…
To a Healthy Mind, Body & Soul
Holistic healing – that is, a treatment regimen that incorporates the power of the mind to heal the body – has long been as mysterious as it has been successful. Almost everyone has heard a tale (or several tales) of how someone diagnosed with a serious disease and given a grim prognosis was healed – not through the application of conventional medicine, but through tapping the unique physical, mental, emotional, family, and spiritual resources of the ill person.
While we’ve all heard those success stories, very few of us have understood the process. Even members of the medical community have been at a loss to explain how a very sick person becomes very well – not because of a prescription or a procedure, but because the very resources just noted.
UBHN.org is a leading provider of information on holistic, homeopathic, and alternative medicine. In a recent article there, the author outlined the benefits of taking a holistic approach, not just to heal a specific disease, but to produce good health in general.
In a nutshell, it noted that holistic healing incorporates natural elements that everyone possesses – the physical, the mental, the emotional, the family and the spiritual components that mark every life. In the holistic approach, the body is purified and cleansed through the intake of natural remedies loaded with nutrients which make the body stronger. The mind is made purer by allowing negative thoughts to be released and replaced by positive thoughts. The spirit is purged through prayer or spiritual healing.
The sum, by utilizing all the parts, is a natural healing process that doesn’t simply treat a symptom, but cures the illness and leaves the person who undergoes the treatment healthy for the long haul.
