The benefits of Holistic Healing

Holistic healing aims to identify the root cause, or causes, of an imbalance (whether it is physical pain, stress, poor sleep, etc.). As a result, a patient feels completely considered and cared for, a benefit missing from many modern medicine practices. Instead of solely seeking to resolve symptoms, practitioners will ask the patient to both discuss and consider how not only their physical body relates to this imbalance, but also how their psychosocial, spiritual, and mental states contribute. And to help the body shift towards a healthier balance, a practitioner may guide the patient in processes such as emotional recognition and release, dietary modification, spiritual connection, and more. Not only will the patient be making improvements towards their original imbalance, but also in many realms of their life.

What is holistic medicine?

 

Holistic medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – body, mind, and spirit. The practice of holistic medicine integrates conventional and alternative therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health.

What is a holistic consultant?

Holistic health consultants provide information and education to people seeking alternative forms of healing and treatment. Ideally, a holistic health consultant has a broad understanding of a variety of natural health disciplines and may recommend a specific approach of alternative healing to a client.

A holistic health consultant is a professional who has extensive knowledge about natural health, herbs, vitamins, minerals, and nutrition. They may also be familiar with additional areas of practice, such as acupuncture or massage therapy, although the consultant may not holistic health consultants are typically knowledgeable about ethics and legal issues in health care and what natural means of healing may be accepted or rejected by an individual’s traditional practitioners.

Why Sugar is Bad

avoid-sugar

Sugar increases the risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Large-scale studies have shown that the more high glycemic foods (those that quickly affect blood sugar), including foods containing sugar, a person consumes, the higher his risk for becoming obese and for developing diabetes and heart disease.

Just about everything contains sugar. Whether it’s natural or added.

Always read your labels, if you can’t pronounce it chances are it’s bad for you.

Sugars to Avoid.

Barley malt

Corn syrup solids

Beet sugar

Date sugar

Fruit juice concentrate

Invert sugar

Brown sugar

Dextran

Glucose

Buttered syrup

Dextrose

Glucose solids

Malt syrup

Cane-juice crystals

Diastase

Golden sugar

Maltodextrin

Cane sugar

Diastatic malt

Golden syrup

Carob syrup

Fructose

High fructose corn syrup

Molasses

Raw sugar

Refiners sugar

Sorbitol

Sucrose

Turbinado sugar

Alternatives to Sugar

  1. First tip to minimize sugar: Eat fat.No, I’m not kidding. When the body starts feeling hungry, it’s going to crave sugar or something it can easily convert to sugar, like simple carbohydrates, to give it instant fuel. But if you have an even intake of healthy fats, such as coconut oil and butter, coupled with high-quality proteins, like nuts or meats, your body will not crave sugar in the same way, as fat is a long-burning fuel source that leaves the body feeling satiated and without need for an instant fuel fix. Also, remember: The fat you eat is not what becomes the fat that your body stores – those are two different types of fat! Eating fat does not make you fat – SUGAR does.
  2. Find herbal and plant sources to sweeten your day.Add a few lavender blossoms, dried mint, or a cinnamon stick to your tea as you steep it to add sweetness. Use cream in your coffee instead of milk, both because it’s slightly more concentrated in lactose (an okay sugar) and to give a bit of added fat. Use stevia extract in your baking – you can grow stevia on your patio just like any other herb and make the extract yourself, which tastes vastly better than anything in the grocery store, although those extracts are fine too. Drink kombucha with ginger or cinnamon. Make a smoothie of squash and coconut milk – if you add pumpkin pie spices, it tastes just like pumpkin pie. Or if you like to drink soda, try drinking bubbly water with citrus rinds in it for flavor – or stir in pure cranberry juice. It’s tart but refreshing!
  3. Make non-sweet snacks easy to grab.When you’re feeling munchies, usually you want something RIGHT NOW. So, keep snacks such as cheese cubes, nuts, popcorn, and hard-boiled eggs within easy reach.
  4. You can never go wrong with Coconut . Coconut is nearly all glucose and very little fructose, so it’s an okay fruit to use in all its forms. Also, it provides lots of “sweet” flavor even without eating the meat of the fruit itself, such as drinking coconut water. So, sprinkling toast with unsweetened coconut flakes is a super-sweet treat that’s still okay. Add coconut water to smoothies or drink by itself. Use coconut milk in place of other sweeteners. Eat coconut oil in any form, any time!
  5. It goes without saying – avoid processed food.Even in the “healthy” brands, there is often added or hidden sugar in some form, so cooking from scratch is always the best way to go. Even if you’re overwhelmed and feel like you can’t prepare homemade options for every meal, just do it as often as possible.
