The Benefits of Holistic Treatments

Modern medicine has evolved into more discoveries of new drugs and new forms of treatment to cure all types of diseases. These are the conventional methods to give relief and to cure illness that are generally applied to most people. However, another kind of treatment has given rise to a more realistic approach to cure illness – the holistic way which is a kind of treatment that would go back to the basic roots of the cause of the illness and the person’s whole being as an important part of this treatment.

Holistic treatment is defined as more of an approach rather than a treatment; it focuses on the person’s whole being – his physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellness that need to be addressed. The holistic treatment is into more of the lifestyle of the person and identifies the imbalances which may cause some negative effects to the person’s health.

It focuses on the root cause of the disease and the goal is to eliminate the disease by encouraging the person to strive for wholeness and healthy living.

The benefits of holistic treatments are:

• Quicker relief for pain

• Improvement of overall general health

• Understanding the need for a well-balanced lifestyle

• Awareness of keeping environment safe and healthy

The holistic treatment has benefited illnesses like ovarian cancer wherein most women treated thru this way experienced lesser pain, general improvement of health, reduced growth of cysts and totally eliminating the cancer. Another benefit of holistic treatment is the improvement of eye health particularly those suffering from Glaucoma. This treatment focused on natural medicines combined with eye exercises, healthy eating habits, taking natural vitamin supplements and stress relieving exercises like yoga, meditation and self-relaxing exercises. It is believed that by applying the holistic treatment the prevention of eye disease would be more effective.

The holistic treatment has also benefited the drug rehabilitation program by incorporating the holistic approach to do treatment. All the possible causes of the addiction are properly addressed with the help of doctors and others who provide the care for recovering addicts. Included in this treatment are more recreational therapies, proper nutrition with the use of natural herbs, regular stress-relieving exercises and spiritual counseling. The use of synthetic medicines for calming those in the rehab is avoided as much as possible because they need to clear the body of toxins is already enforced by using more natural methods.

8 Ways You Can Survive — And Thrive In — Midlife

Hello!

Today we are sharing a great article from www.npr.org about eight tips for thriving during your midlife. We all go through life changes throughout different stages in our lives. And of course there is the cliche "mid-life crisis" which we often hear too much about. However this article shows some enlightenment into being happy and thriving in midlife with advice compiled over 400 interviews. Take a look!

"After two years of research and more than 400 interviews about midlife, former NPR reporter Barb Bradley Hagerty received dozens of insights about how to live well in the middle years. We've distilled them here, with a little context. And, by the way, these ideas work well for people on both sides of the midlife divide.

1. Aim for long-term meaning rather than short-term happiness, and you will likely find both. Aristotle suggested as much when he talked about eudaemonia, or the good life: striving with a purpose — raising terrific children, training for a marathon — rather than setting your sights on immediate pleasures, such as enjoying a good meal or a day at the beach. It's also the best thing you can do for your mind and your health.

2. Choose what matters most. Clayton Christensen at Harvard Business School describes the eroding effect of short-term decisions — specifically, doing the activity that brings you immediate gratification (such as work) and putting off harder but ultimately more fulfilling activities (such as investing in your marriage and children). I talked with many people who privileged work over family because work brought immediate rewards. These people closed the sale, they shipped the product, they pulled an all-nighter to get the story on the radio, they were promoted and praised for a job well done. "And as a consequence," Christensen says, "people like you and me who plan to have a happy life — because our families truly are the deepest source of happiness — find that although that's what we want, the way we invest our time and energy and talents causes us to implement a strategy that we wouldn't at all plan to pursue."
