Benefits Of Holistic Healing Approaches

Modern medicine treats people who are sick as though they are machines with which something has gone wrong. The most common used methods are to radiate and cut them open to see what parts have succumbed to illness, and then to treat only those parts of their bodies.

The human mind and spirit are never taken into consideration.

Unlike these methods, holistic approaches take a human being as a whole. Like Native Americans still do, they actually stop and ask questions about the general well-being of an individual. Nowadays many people see the significance and the benefits of such approaches, and there is an increasing number of people who choose to be treated by so-called medicine men.

Things are changing so rapidly that even modern Western medicine has started doubting its methods. There are more and more techniques that are specially developed to rid doctors of the need to heal their patients in the invasive ways that have become customary.

One of the most famous such methods is definitely electrotherapy. I did some research and found some sites, such as, that have reviews of many different devices for electrotherapy that can be used out of the comfort of your own home. So it really seems that things are changing for the better.

The benefits of non-invasive methods that still fall under the category of modern medicine can easily be proven. For instance, you can read about the advantages of above-mentioned electrotherapy here, as well as on countless other sites. When it comes to alternative methods, however, it’s all treated like hearsay.

This is exactly why I believe that people should be more invested in promoting holistic approaches, and that’s why I’m going to take this opportunity to say something about all the benefits of alternative healing methods.

After subjecting yourself to a holistic healing method, you’ll notice that not only does it relieve you of pain, it does that a lot quicker than any modern method could. Apart from healing the part of your body that’s most affected by the illness, it also improves your overall sense of well-being. In the process, it makes you understand some basic things, the most important being the fact that you need to take care of yourself in order to remain healthy. This, of course, excludes drinking, smoking, irregular sleep cycles and bad eating habits.

Healing is conducted only with the use of natural ingredients and positive energy, which means that you won’t get your body poisoned while trying to treat it. Apart from all this, it’s highly likely that you’ll open up a communication channel with Mother Earth, which means that you’ll become someone who cares about the environment as well.

As you can see, there are plenty of advantages, and no disadvantages when it comes to holistic healing methods. By now you should have realized how harmful it is for mankind to stick with modern medicine, when there is such a wonderful alternative to it. I’m not saying that people should stop seeing their doctors; I just believe that we all could do a lot better.

Tackling Tantrums In Kids Effectively

There are times when I feel that I can do the most difficult of jobs easily than manage my kid when he’s throwing up a tantrum. Of late he has been showing more anger and impatience, which has put me in a very sorry state. I decided to consult my pediatrician about him. While at the hospital, the pediatrician referred my son to a clinical psychologist for helping him deal with the anger. The nurse at the clinic was very helpful and handled my son’s queries and anger patiently.

I was amazed at the patience she showed and told her about it too. She said that she uses her awesome nurse shoes for standing all day, so she doesn’t feel tired. She also shared some of her secret tips on dealing with child anger.

It is possible to deal with your child’s anger and make him or her turn it into a positive one. Anger is an expression of the child to show its dissent. Anger is actually a very useful emotion and a perfectly normal one. They convey their feelings of anguish or disturbed thought through the anger.

It is necessary to find the reason behind the angry emotion exhibited by the child. You can help the child to deal with the anger in a healthy way. This will lessen the intensity of the anger episodes and reduce distress to both the kid and the family. Over long term the management of anger will help the child to cope with real issues in their adult life and control their emotions in a productive way.

Acting judgmental is not the right way to deal in such a situation. You need to join hands with your child so the child does not feel alone or make the child understand that the real problem is the anger and not the child. The anger can be given a name and you can make the entire thing creative and fun to deal with.

The way you respond to the anger will also affect the anger emotion in the child. When you try to deal with the anger and help your child, instead of berating him for getting angry you can mitigate the intensity and help calm the child.

The triggers that cause the eruption of anger should be found out first. When you know the triggers, you can act beforehand and diffuse the situation before it gets out of your control. You can also sit down and talk with the child on how to control the anger.

There were many other tips that the nurse helped us with which were quite good and I decided to try out them with my child. She also recommended using the nicer shoes for better comfort and less strain on the back. All in my entire visit to the psychologist turned out to be a big eye-opener.

Some of the herbs they used include:


This herbs was used as a remedy for lung infections that resulted in the production of excess mucus. One way in which it was used was by boiling water and adding a teaspoon of the elecampane herb to the water once it had boiled. The person with the illness would then drink this ‘tea’ up to three times a day. Even today, elecampane is used taken by many when suffering from bronchitis.

This was a very popular plant amongst Native American Indians and in today’s society has held a strong reputation. You can find it in skin care  products as well as in juices and some even grow aloe vera in their homes.

Aloe vera was mostly used to aid in the healing of wounds. Earlier uses, however, included cleansing internal organs, promoting the health of the reproductive system as well as consuming to improve liver health.

Aloe vera can also very easily be grown in ones home with the use of a growing light as its light source. As a succulent, aloe vera, like many others in its group can withstand a wide variety of different conditions.

Caesalpinia bonducella

A common plant in the India’s coastal regions, it is popular amongst herbalists for the controlling of blood sugar levels. It’s also been used to treat malarial fever as well as colitis and dysentery. One of the amazing things about Caesalpinia bonducella is that so much of the plant was and is useful and each has a different medicinal property. When fried, the Caesalpinia bonducella leaves are a great remedy for constipation. While the seeds of the Caesalpinia bonducella stimulate the uterus and ease lower abdominal pain.

Proof in the plant

In the earlier days, Native American Indians were very fond of their herbal remedies. Many people today, are rather hesitant when it comes to believing that without our modern instruments, Native American Indians weren’t truly able to determine the properties of specific herbs. However, proof lies in the fact that many of these herbs are popular even in today’s society and extensive research has concluded that the properties the Native American Indians claimed are the properties the herbs possess.

With the side effects of modern medicine, it isn’t uncommon for people in today’s society to turn to traditional Native American Indian remedies, whether it involves the boiling, ingesting or bathing in a certain herb. Because in many countries, it is hard to get access to a lot of these herbs, people have resorted to growing them in their homes, aiding their growth with a growing light, especially in the colder months.
