Homeopathy

Homeopathy looks beyond the labels of disease to cure their causes rather than merely their symptoms and it stimulates the body’s own natural healing powers to bring health, vitality and well-being. It does not treat superficially by just driving away the symptoms but heals the patient from within.

Homeopathy is highly individualised and based upon a holistic assessment. As well as the patient’s actual complaint and conventional diagnosis, the following factors may play an important part in medicine selection, especially in chronic disease:  the patient’s constitution, emotional and mental make-up, the way the patient responds to physical, emotional and mental influences/stress in his/her life, the patient’s personality, temperament, genetic predispositions and any strong family history of particular diseases.

Homeopathy is an effective alternative to antibiotics in infectious diseases, producing no toxic side effects, often bringing about rapid recovery. Viral infections are also very well treated with homeopathy. In addition, homeopathy is effective for a variety of complaints occurring in children, including behavioural problems.

Other medical conditions successfully treated are: skin diseases such as acne, boils, eczema, psoriasis, warts; musculoskeletal pain, arthritis, osteoarthritis, sciatica, bursitis and fibromyalgia; allergies, frequent infections; tension headache and migraine; heartburn, gastritis, constipation, intestinal conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease; frequent colds, sinusitis, tonsillitis, cough, asthma and respiratory infections; emotional conditions such as depression, anxiety, insomnia; menstrual disorders, premenstrual syndrome and many other conditions besides those listed where homeopathy is found to be effective.

Homeopathy is safe. Unlike other medication, homeopathic medicines are non-toxic and harmless and do not have any adverse side effects.

Patients unable to use conventional prescription drugs due to side effects can often safely use homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines are natural, prepared from minute amounts of herbs, minerals and other natural products. Their quality and safety are assured by the national medicine agencies based on European Union legislation and European Pharmacopoeia requirements.

The European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH) represents all medical doctors with an additional qualification in homeopathy, organised in 40 associations in 25 European countries.

Homeopathy is very popular in Germany where much of the research is done. It is actually even more popular in India where over 100 million people depend solely on this form of medical care (2). Further, according to an A.C. Neilsen survey in India, 62 percent of current homeopathy users have never tried conventional medicines and 82 percent of homeopathy users would not switch to conventional treatments (3).

Curcumin -Turmeric

Curcumin, a yellow-pigment substance and component of turmeric (Curcuma longa),  exhibits anti-inflammatory activity. Extensive research performed within the past two decades has shown that the  activity of turmeric is due to curcumin, a diferuloylmethane. This agent has been shown to regulate numerous transcription factors, cytokines, protein kinases, adhesion molecules, redox status and enzymes that have been linked to inflammation.

The process of inflammation has been shown to play a major role in most chronic illnesses, including neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, autoimmune and neoplastic diseases.

The current review on the link below provides evidence for the potential role of curcumin in the prevention and treatment of various pro-inflammatory chronic diseases.

These features, combined with the pharmacological safety and negligible cost, render curcumin an attractive agent to incorporate into your health program.

Raw Sauerkraut

Raw sauerkraut contains lactobacilli bacteria, one of the better-studied types of probiotics.

Sauerkraut and its juices are made from naturally fermented cabbage. In this ancient method of food preservation, dry salt is added to shredded cabbage, which causes the cabbage to release juice containing lactic acid, preserving the cabbage.

Sauerkraut juice, due to the fermentation process, is rich in natural lactic acid, which inhibits the growth of undesired intestinal bacteria and encourages the growth of good bacteria. This makes sauerkraut juice an excellent choice for treating sluggish bowels and poor digestion. Drinking this tart juice not only benefits your body’s digestive process, but it also acts as a laxative, helping to prevent constipation.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that may help improve digestive function, lower your risk for antibiotic-associated diarrhea and possibly help with lactose intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease, according to the University of Florida Extension.

A 1/2-cup serving of sauerkraut has about 20 calories, 1 gram of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates, including 3 grams of fiber, or 13 percent of the daily value. It also provides about 10 percent of the DV for iron and 25 percent of the DV for vitamin C, as well as significant amounts of vitamin K. Fiber helps lower your cholesterol and blood sugar levels and decreases your risk for constipation and other digestive issues. You need iron for forming red blood cells, vitamin C for wound healing and vitamin K for blood clotting.

TRE Series

Anxious. ​ ​Stressed ​ ​out. ​ ​Overwhelmed. ​ ​These ​ ​words ​ ​are ​ ​all ​ ​too ​ ​common ​ ​ways ​ ​to describe ​ ​how ​ ​we ​ ​feel ​ ​on ​ ​a ​ ​daily ​ ​basis. ​ ​Life ​ ​is ​ ​stressful, ​ ​but ​ ​that ​ ​reality ​ ​doesn’t ​ ​have ​ ​to control ​ ​you.

TRE® ​ ​(tension ​ ​and ​ ​trauma ​ ​releasing ​ ​exercises) ​ ​is ​ ​an ​ ​innovative ​ ​approach ​ ​to ​ ​managing and ​ ​mitigating ​ ​the ​ ​effects ​ ​of ​ ​stress ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​body ​ ​and ​ ​in ​ ​your ​ ​life. Whether ​ ​we ​ ​realize ​ ​it ​ ​or not, ​ ​stress ​ ​is ​ ​something ​ ​that ​ ​impacts ​ ​every ​ ​one ​ ​of ​ ​us ​ ​on ​ ​a ​ ​daily ​ ​basis. ​ ​Our ​ ​bodies weren’t ​ ​designed ​ ​to ​ ​live ​ ​with ​ ​the ​ ​chronic ​ ​and ​ ​sometimes ​ ​toxic ​ ​stress ​ ​that ​ ​so ​ ​many ​ ​of ​ ​us carry.

TRE® ​ ​was ​ ​created ​ ​by ​ ​Dr. ​ ​David ​ ​Bercelli, ​ ​and ​ ​uses ​ ​a ​ ​set ​ ​of ​ ​7 ​ ​gentle ​ ​and adaptable exercises ​ ​that ​ ​can ​ ​be ​ ​modified ​ ​to ​ ​support ​ ​every ​ ​body ​ ​type ​ ​and ​ ​ability, ​ ​to ​ ​elicit ​ ​an intentional ​ ​and ​ ​self ​ ​controlled ​ ​muscular ​ ​tremor, ​ ​deep ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​core ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​body. ​ ​Similar ​ ​to the ​ ​way ​ ​animals ​ ​shake ​ ​off ​ ​stress, ​ ​this ​ ​tremor ​ ​reflex ​ ​seeks out ​ ​and ​ ​gently ​ ​vibrates ​ ​open deeply ​ ​held ​ ​patterns ​ ​of ​ ​tension ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​muscle ​ ​tissue ​ ​and ​ ​fascia ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​body, ​ ​while naturally ​ ​quieting ​ ​and ​ ​re-regulating ​ ​the ​ ​nervous system.

The ​ ​tremor ​ ​originates ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​brain-stem, ​ ​the ​ ​part ​ ​of ​ ​the ​ ​brain ​ ​that ​ ​regulates ​ ​autonomic body ​ ​functions, ​ ​and ​ ​does ​ ​not ​ ​involve ​ ​the ​ ​emotional ​ ​or ​ ​thinking ​ ​brain, ​ ​so ​ ​even ​ ​historic patterns ​ ​of ​ ​trauma ​ ​and ​ ​stress ​ ​can ​ ​be ​ ​safely ​ ​and ​ ​gently ​ ​released ​ ​without ​ ​re-triggering painful ​ ​memories. ​ ​Essentially ​ ​TRE® ​ ​allows ​ ​the ​ ​body ​ ​to ​ ​do ​ ​this ​ ​processing ​ ​for ​ ​us.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​accessible ​ ​and ​ ​easy ​ ​to ​ ​learn. ​ ​Most ​ ​people ​ ​find ​ ​it ​ ​easy ​ ​to ​ ​integrate ​ ​TRE® ​ ​into their ​ ​lives, ​ ​and ​ ​more ​ ​importantly, ​ ​derive ​ ​benefit ​ ​from ​ ​it ​ ​almost ​ ​immediately. ​ ​It ​ ​may ​ ​take only ​ ​three ​ ​sessions ​ ​to ​ ​feel ​ ​confident ​ ​in ​ ​the ​ ​ability ​ ​to ​ ​regulate ​ ​the ​ ​practice ​ ​and ​ ​stay feeling ​ ​comfortable. ​ ​After ​ ​that ​ ​people ​ ​are ​ ​free ​ ​to ​ ​practice ​ ​on ​ ​their ​ ​own.TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​meant ​ ​to be ​ ​a ​ ​self ​ ​care ​ ​tool ​ ​that ​ ​you ​ ​can ​ ​access ​ ​for ​ ​the ​ ​rest ​ ​of ​ ​your ​ ​life ​ ​to ​ ​promote ​ ​health ​ ​and wellness ​ ​on ​ ​all ​ ​levels.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​for ​ ​everyone, ​ ​and ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​practice ​ ​of ​ ​empowerment. ​ ​Our ​ ​bodies ​ ​are ​ ​wise ​ ​beyond belief, ​ ​and ​ ​every ​ ​person ​ ​has ​ ​this ​ ​internal ​ ​resource ​ ​waiting ​ ​to ​ ​be ​ ​expressed ​ ​to ​ ​find deeper ​ ​healing ​ ​and ​ ​calmness. ​ ​Quieter ​ ​mind, ​ ​clearer ​ ​outlook ​ ​on ​ ​life, ​ ​greater ​ ​sense ​ ​of emotional ​ ​resilience.

Whether ​ ​you ​ ​are ​ ​suffering ​ ​from ​ ​symptoms ​ ​of ​ ​post ​ ​traumatic ​ ​stress, ​ ​or ​ ​just ​ ​trying ​ ​to ​ ​keep your ​ ​head ​ ​above ​ ​water ​ ​in ​ ​a ​ ​fast ​ ​paced ​ ​and ​ ​chaotic ​ ​world, ​ ​TRE® ​ ​has ​ ​something ​ ​to ​ ​offer you, ​ ​and ​ ​you ​ ​are ​ ​invited ​ ​to ​ ​come ​ ​and ​ ​check ​ ​it ​ ​out.

TRE® ​ ​is ​ ​a ​ ​safe ​ ​and ​ ​effective ​ ​stress ​ ​release ​ ​technique ​ ​for ​ ​most ​ ​people . ​ ​The ​ ​TRE process ​ ​should ​ ​not ​ ​be ​ ​used ​ ​as ​ ​a ​ ​substitute ​ ​for ​ ​trauma ​ ​recovery ​ ​procedures ​ ​of ​ ​a ​ ​medical or ​ ​psychological ​ ​nature.
