Holistic Medicine to the Rescue!

Our bodies are amazing vessels that house our souls. It’s up to us to treat them with respect by how we feed them, groom them, and use them. You do have healthcare choices, and they don’t have to do with insurance or the government. Start with loving yourself, detoxing through sweating, ¬†and cleansing your body with healthy fruits and vegetables.

Thank Goodness for old school medicine and common sense. How has it become the norm to get sick, get pills, and get sick again? What are we doing to our bodies with all of these chemicals, both in our food and our medicine? It seems more like we are the lab rats now and a brief warning of the myriad of side effects you might experience on any medication is the pharmaceutical company’s free license to see how the public weathers the chemicals that are pumped into us by the billions, and that’s billions with a big $$$ behind it.

Have you ever wondered how we can improve the healthcare system in this country?

Here are a few ideas:

1) Start with demanding ORGANIC FOODS that are pesticide, hormone and anti-biotic-free. You can do this simply by only purchasing organic foods. It’s not expensive when you put your focus on the value of a healthy body and saving money on medical bills.

2) If you get sick, or your kids do, with an immune system issue, try an elimination diet. Start with gluten and yeast, the most common offenders. If you can afford to go to a holistic doctor, have them do an Immunolabs (http://www.immunolabs.com/patients/) blood test for food intolerances.

3) EXERCISE, EXERCISE, EXERCISE!!! There is NO substitute. Our bodies are designed to move, beautifully, so make that happen. Get sweaty! Sweating is one of your bodies best systems for detoxification. Sweating purifies the blood, the lungs and the organs. Once you get going with a workout routine, you’ll crave it. Start a new habit. Don’t have time? MAKE TIME, it’s your body, get to know it and take care of it :O).

4) If you need a doctor, go to one that is trained in a holistic approach to medicine, sometimes we need the big guns- cancer, for example. But if it isn’t life-threatening, try to figure out WHY YOUR SICK, with a good holistic practitioner to find a natural solution.
