Conventional Healing vs Holistic Healing
Conventional healing focuses mainly on treating the physical symptoms of illnesses using harmful, expensive, synthetic drugs, invasive surgery, and radiation.
Holistic healing (from the word 'whole') focuses on eliminating the physical, psychological, and emotional root causes of illnesses using safe, inexpensive, non-invasive natural methods like changing the diet and lifestyle. The six principles of holistic health are: do no harm ('Hippocratic Oath'), tap into the healing power of nature, find the cause, treat the whole person, preventative medicine is your best medicine, and your doctor is your teacher.
How To Be Healthy
1. First, we must educate ourselves about natural holistic health.
2. Then, we must implement healthy changes to our diet and lifestyle.
Diet (what we eat, drink, breath, and absorb through our skin) and lifestyle (how and where we live) are the sources of both our nourishment and our stressors. They determine not only our physical health (well-being and vitality), but our mental health (memory, learning, concentration), emotional health (mood, feelings, outlook, attitude), and spiritual health (higher awareness, sense of wholeness, oneness, interconnectedness). Vibrant health and safe permanent relief from any health condition require a healthy diet and lifestyle.
We're all blessed with a self-healing body that loses this innate ability for only two reasons: toxicity (stressor overload) and deficiency (poor nourishment). Anyone can recover from any illness or take their health to a whole new level by eliminating toxicity (by detoxing using alkalizing green juices, detoxifiers, cleansing foods, fasting, etc) and eliminating deficiency (by eating nutrient-dense foods like superfoods and adequate nourishing foods like healthy fats). Toxicity must always be addressed first (through detoxification) because it also leads to poor gut health (and thus nutritional deficiencies), and is therefore often a primary cause of poor health or illness.
With today's poor nutrition, stressful lifestyles, toxic environments, and misinformation, it's challenging to stay well-informed and healthy. But it's also for these reasons that it's so important to have a proactive self-care approach and to take responsibility for our own health.
Even our lifestyle choices are affected by our diet. I believe everything starts there, and once the physical, mental, emotional healing happen as a result, an individual evolution in consciousness (awakening) happens naturally and effortlessly. This inner transformation is the catalyst for urgently needed social change. Yes, we can change the world by changing ourselves. And we change ourselves by changing what we eat, drink, breath, and absorb.
A true healer educates rather than medicates, and with information, each of us can be empowered. And that's the HolisticWay mission!
