Holistic therapies encompass a broad spectrum of ways and means by which an individual is healed or helped to alleviate pain and suffering. For example, if someone has a skin rash on their neck and arms, there are various ways to heal this person from the disorder. Or, maybe it is not a disorder. Maybe they are allergic to something. Maybe it is from an emotional upset.
In order to heal or at least control the uncomfortable symptoms, we need to know what caused the rash in the beginning. Cause and effect are a huge part of holistic diagnostic work. No one gets sick just by chance. Many people have pain and suffering that is months or even years old. They’ll say, “I have been everywhere for every test and seen different kinds of doctors, but they still can’t cure me.” Or, “Other medical professionals just say they cannot help me.”
Holistic therapies start with a natural approach…always. You must talk about the problem. Examine the problem from its origination point. If you cannot find one, try to determine a date or age when the symptoms started showing. Next, you should have an energy reading taken (usually) to see if there is any interruption in the energy field or energy points throughout the body. This is like a test. It really shows where to find the problem, or where tissues or organs are failing.
There are many techniques and devices available to determine what kind of therapy the person needs to feel better or to overcome their difficult problem. Most of the time it is a complex set of issues, rather than a single cause.
“Holistic” implies natural ways of handling health. Some holistic therapies commonly used are herbs, natural remedies manufactured by established companies, and a few natural remedies that practitioners have developed through their own research. Energy medicine can be incorporated for many kinds of health situations. Other natural forms of treatment are exercise, diet, Infrared Thermal Imaging®, sound, acupressure, absorber crystals, and other modalities as the situation warrants.
