(Practiitoners . .. feel free to submit articles for that topic)
Having been in one way or another within this field for the last 30 years, has only strengthened my view, that Natural Therapy modalities are an important and even vital aspect of keeping or getting healthy.
We have come a long way.... a lot of natural therapy advice, which natural practitioners have given or suggested, and which in the past have been "credited" as advice from quacks, are now widely practice, eg; non smoking, watch your diet, regular exercise, healthy mental attitude and more.
I can remember as a child going to a GP, and the good Doctor was sitting behind his desk, smoking a cigar and consulting me and my inflamed throat through a cloud of smoke.
Doctors these days are against smoking, with other words they are acknowledging that one can prevent getting sick by lifestyle changes.
My personal attitude in consulting has always been to be in support of the patient, and not against any medical treatment.
If a patient needs medical treatment more than natural, than this is what should be applied.
However once a patient has been stabilised, the full holistic natural knowledge of how to support this persons health should be considered.
Obviously, a lot of patients don't even need medical treatment, a natural approach is often all what is needed.
I think that the medical system needs to acknowledge that not enough is done in the area of supporting health, and rectifying this with a constructive approach of working together with Natural Therapists.
Let's face it, can you see your GP sitting down with you for a "one hour consultation ", explaining about health improvement, lifestyle, attitudes, diets and nutritional supplements?
The medical systems fights diseases, whereas the natural system supports your health....
... and these days, we see more and more health problems arising from lifestyle and environmental factors;
The air we breath
The nourishments we drink and eat
even the attitudes we hold, esp.in connection with social expectations, TV commercials, marketing strategies, availability of alternative choices...
The quality of air, water and food has a major impact on our systems, and as more contaminated and polluted our living space becomes as more our systems will be compromised.
Health should be our birthright, the guide lines are clear,
- A good diet of unpolluted air, clean water and uncontaminated - unrefined fresh food.
- Enough sleep
- Regular exercise
- A positive outlook on life.
- A peaceful environment to live in....
Interestingly, above guidelines may be relatively easy to practice, but with societies pressures, temptations may get the better of us.... :-)
