Holistic Healing Centers can

Change your Life

by Kathleen Chester

Holistic health is a popular medical philosophy that treats patients by focusing on the most essential physical aspects—taking emotional, spiritual, and physical health into account. For many years, pharmaceutical medications have dominated the world of western medicine. But synthetic medication always carries the risk of creating dangerous chemical reactions in the body. Holistic healing is a lifelong commitment to personal health and well being on the way to living a better life.

Holistic healing goes beyond the mind-body connection to achieve improved lifestyle and wellness. Your entire personal well-being is accounted for. Physical healing, mental health, wellness, emotional well-being and spiritual values are the areas in which holistic health centers focus. This method of treatment will help you find personal power to establish control over your mind and body.

A person who gets the treatment from a holistic health center also learns the value of having proper relationships, being part of a nurturing caring environment, and the importance of having compassion for all human beings. Piedmont Triad’s holistic healer and author, Janet Nestor is a local resource, providing several services, including energy work sessions.

There are various types of holistic healing therapies that you can receive from a healing center. Some of the most popular and widely used holistic healing therapies are:

Aromatherapy: This is a massage treatment of body, face, and scalp to improve blood circulation through the use of aromatic essential oils made from trees, flowers, and plants. This treatment provides relaxation through the use of accupressure. A local resource provides non-toxic cleaners utilizing essential oils, The Clean G.

Ayurveda medicine: This is an ancient healing system that uses combinations of herbs. It was developed over thousands of years in India.

Counseling: If you are going through a bad phase of life, it is essential that you need to overcome your depression. Expert psychologists will help you to overcome depression by counseling.

Herbal remedies: This is a traditional healing treatment based on the use of plants and plant extracts. Since pharmaceutical medicines are affecting our body badly, it is better to use the natural medicines to cure our diseases. Terry Rader can advise on holistic healing and prevention in the Piedmont Triad Area for pet care, specializing in senior dog care.

Homeopathy: This is a treatment based on a theory that many diseases can be cured by a very small amount of drugs.

Naturopathic medicine: This treatment heals through massage, exercise, acupuncture, and minor surgery.

Chinese medicine: Another type of treatment in holistic healing centers that includes acupuncture, herbal medicine, heat therapy, and nutritional and lifestyle counseling that treat a range of acute and chronic diseases.

February is Heartworm Prevention month –

Holistic pet care for your furry Valentines!

by Terry Rader  

Each February when we celebrate those dearest to our hearts, why not remember our four-legged companions with a gift of perfect health on Valentine’s Day? Include an annual Wellpet Exam each February along with a heartworm test. Here, in the South, where mosquitoes are abundant, protecting our pets from heartworm disease is necessary.

Heartworm prevention requires a strong, healthy immune system – this begins with proper diet. Look for holistic, wholesome pet foods with nutritious ingredients that list the meat as the first ingredient, not “meat-by-products” or “meal”. Dogs and cats are carnivores and their digestive systems do much better with real meat and veggies rather than a lot of grain. It is also a good practice to alternate the meats (chicken, lamb, fish) every few months so that your pets do not develop sensitivities to the same foods.

 

If your present veterinarian is not up on holistic alternatives, you may want to add a holistic veterinarian to your pet’s wellness team. I have worked with allopathic and holistic vets together since 1994. Calling your holistic vet for alternatives can often save your companion from unnecessary vaccinations and medications with side effects. There are also many herbal remedies and supplements to further strengthen your pet’s immunity to disease.

 

 

Victoria Farthing, DVM at Animal Wellness Center at Concord Farm in Virginia says: Interceptor® is safer for many dogs with different ailments including epileptics, a lot more dogs are getting on it, plus it aids in whipworm eradication. Heartguard® only treats roundworms and hookworms. Real natural prevention includes additional protection from mosquitoes using topical treatments of Neem oil and specific essential oils in safe dilutions (some essential oils can burn the skin and should not be used at all).”

 

In summary, your choices for Heartworm Prevention include:

1) Holistic prevention (not yet proven by itself)

2) Interceptor® (give every 6 weeks instead of monthly)

3) Heartgard® (contains Ivermectin, very toxic to Aussies/Collies)

4) Vaccination (I avoid all unnecessary vaccinations, see http://www.charlesloopsdvm.com/vaccinations.html)

 

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: This information is not meant to replace professional veterinary prevention, diagnosis, or treatment. Please consult with a holistic veterinarian before following any new holistic treatment for your beloved pets. Find one in your area at http://www.ahvma.org/
