Natural Healing – What Is It?

Today I want to talk about natural healing. What does that mean?

Natural healing

Natural healing

What it means for me is that I am using natural methods. It could be what we call “old wives tales” using things that are in your cupboards.

Natural Remedy For Gastric Reflux

For example: bicarbonate soda – about a ¼ – ½ teaspoon of bicarb of soda in a glass of water neutralizes the acid in the stomach.

My mum who was a nurse about 50 years ago said that after every surgical procedure every patient was given a glass of water with ¼ – ½ teaspoon of bicarb of soda and that helped with the whole digestive tract in recovering after being anaesthetised after surgery.

And let me tell you – I have used that myself for oesophagitis, or heartburn, indigestion – when you get that gastric reflux feeling and the burning – it makes you almost beside yourself with pain. Within seconds of drinking that bicarb of soda and water it removes the pain completely.

So that is a natural healing process.

The Healing Foods We Eat

Also coming under natural healing is the food that we eat. Eating organic, non-contaminated food provides the body with the fuel and resources so that it can heal itself naturally.

We need to understand that some foods are contrary to the body healing. Recently, I have heard that the reason why Chinese and Japanese women don’t get the high incidence of breast cancer is because the Chinese and Japanese don’t have dairy products in their diet. Whereas in the western world we eat a lot of dairy products and our incidence are 1:10 or 1:12 women get breast cancer.

The incidence of prostate cancer is also linked to the dairy products. Now … this is new research and you can take it or leave – but I’m really fascinated by this claim of the dairy products affecting the body.

I know, personally, I am very sensitive to some foods and if I eat them, then I don’t feel so well. So, clearly, those foods are affecting my immune system and its ability to do what it needs to do to keep me at optimum health.

A Little Bit Of Sunshine

There are really sensible things to do like getting a little bit of sunshine every day … going for a walk … being out in fresh air. Those things fall under the category of natural healing. We need that balance in our body.

Things that fall into natural healing from a societal point of view are all your natural therapies. Herbal medicine, homeopathy, kinesiology, all the energy techniques that have come out in the forefront of the last 20 years.

Then there are the physical treatments within your remedial massage therapies. Bowen therapy … Alexander Technique – which is absolutely extraordinary for any muscular and structural problems that you find yourself suffering.

Treatment For Back Pain

If you are experiencing back problems … Click Here!. The information here you won’t find anywhere else on the internet … I love it!

I can tell you that I had an epidural when I had my first baby and there were complications. I won’t go into it because you don’t need to hear that story … however, it affected my back for 10 maybe 15 years. I got to the point where I was semi-paralysed and if I didn’t walk in a particular way – I would crumple to the floor with the pain.

I had an MRI scan and I had a bulge between L4 and L5. After I found that it wasn’t cancer, I decided I would fix it myself. I went to an Alexander Technique therapist … she taught me how to stretch my muscles and stretch my ligaments and extend myself.

I also combined that with yoga which I did every day for an hour and within 3 months – I totally cured my back and I haven’t had that problem since.

These are the sorts of things – I would say to you – fall into natural healing.

There are many other natural healing solutions which I will tell you about in another blog post.

Thanks for joining me … I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Warm regards,
Julie
