Holistic Healing Goes Way Beyond the Physical Mind-Body

Holistic healing is really a lifestyle approach. Throughout history, cultures have adopted a variety of explanations and philosophies in the continuing quest for health.

Illness has been attributed in turn to evil spirits, divine retribution, and bugs. The holistic approach takes the broadest possible view of illness and disease, identifying multiple causes (both internal and external), and offering multi-dimensional “healing,” as opposed to specific “cures.”

The fundamental premise is that your body knows how to be well, given the proper support. Underlying that premise is the awareness that your thoughts, emotions and attitudes and beliefs all have an impact on you, through the natural activity of vibration.

We have seen this to be true over our past combined 35 years in the holistic self-care arena, and what we love is to be able to teach people some simple principles that they can use to regain and maintain great health and vitality, not just for themselves, but for their whole family. And this vitality can impact not only their physical health, but their emotional, mental and financial health at the same time.

The human immune system plays a crucial role in your body’s health and longevity. Ageing, illness and death are associated with the loss of immune and growth factors in our bodies.

Medical science has shown in hundreds of published reports worldwide that these can be replaced in the human body with naturally occurring substances, and these are now easily available to the public.

Nutritional and herbal ingredients can help enhance our health, strength, youthfulness, and immunity. They are safer, more effective, less expensive and have fewer (if any) side-effects, compared to commonly used drugs.

Nutrition supplies the body with the necessary ingredient to repair, rebuild and regain good cell integrity, immunity and health. Herbs deal with underlying issues, not just symptoms and can prevent health problems from advancing to crisis proportions.

Looking After Your Digestive System

“All disease begins in the gut.” Hippocrates said this more than 2,000 years ago, but we’re only now coming to understand just how right he was. Research over the past two decades has revealed that gut health is critical to overall health, and that an unhealthy gut contributes to a wide range of diseases including diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, autism spectrum disorder, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.

In fact, many researchers believe that supporting intestinal health and restoring the integrity of the gut barrier will be one of the most important goals of medicine in the 21st century. It certainly is a necessary step if you want to improve your digestion.

There are two closely related variables that determine our gut health: the intestinal microbiota, or “gut flora”, and the gut barrier. Let’s discuss each of them in turn, because if you keep the detoxification pathways open and look after your digestive  system, they’ll look after you. Read More

The Real Power of Antioxidants

“Antioxidants are natural compounds found in some foods that help neutralize free radicals in our bodies.”

Antioxidants play an important role in overall health. They are found in many plants throughout the plant kingdom with varying degrees of concentration. The body’s trillion or so cells face formidable threats daily, ranging from lack of food, lack of nutrients, lack of water, environmental or chemical exposure, to infections with a virus, bacteria, fungi, parasites and electrosmog – just to name a few!

In the Victorian government Better Health site, it’s stated that antioxidants benefit your health by cleaning free radicals out of your bloodstream. I wrote about the Antioxidants The Wonder Nutrients a few weeks ago, but have been getting a stream of questions regarding free radicals and why we recommend the specific antioxidants we do.

There are a few very simple reasons: Read More
