Healing Therapies {15} ~ Bibliotherapy

Bibliotherapy (also referred to as book therapy, poetry therapy or therapeutic storytelling) is a creative arts therapies modality that involves storytelling or the reading of specific texts with the purpose of healing. It uses an individual’s relationship to the content of books and poetry and other written words as therapy. Bibliotherapy is often combined with writing therapy. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of depression. A 3 year follow up study has suggested that the results are long-lasting.

Healing Therapies {14} ~ Chiropractic

Chiropractic is a regulated primary healthcare profession. Chiropractors are trained to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent disorders of the musculoskeletal system (bones, joints, and muscles), as well as the effects these disorders can have on the nervous system and general health. They have a specialist interest in neck and back pain, but when they assess patients, they take their entire physical, emotional and social wellbeing into account.

Chiropractors use a range of techniques to reduce pain, improve function and increase mobility, including hands-on manipulation of the spine. As well as manual treatment, chiropractors are able to offer a package of care which includes advice on self-help, therapeutic exercises and lifestyle changes.

Chiropractic treatment mainly involves safe, often gentle, specific spinal manipulation to free joints in the spine or other areas of the body that are not moving properly. Apart from manipulation, chiropractors may use a variety of techniques including ice, heat, ultrasound, exercise and acupuncture as well as advice about posture and lifestyle.

Although chiropractors are best known for treating back and neck pain, which they do very well, patients also consult chiropractors regarding a range of other, related conditions.

Healing Therapies {11} ~ Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy, formerly called hydropathy and also called water cure, is a part of alternative medicine (particularly naturopathy), occupational therapy, and physiotherapy, that involves the use of water for pain relief and treatment. The term encompasses a broad range of approaches and therapeutic methods that take advantage of the physical properties of water, such as temperature and pressure, for therapeutic purposes, to stimulate blood circulation and treat the symptoms of certain diseases.

The therapeutic use of water has been recorded in ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman civilizations. Egyptian royalty bathed with essential oils and flowers, while Romans had communal public baths for their citizens. Hippocrates prescribed bathing in spring water for sickness. Other cultures noted for a long history of hydrotherapy include China and Japan, the latter being centred primarily around Japanese hot springs. Many such histories predate the Roman thermae.

Healing Therapies {10} ~ Iridology

Iridology is the practice of studying the iris of the eye – such as patterns and colours – to determine information about a patient’s health as a whole.

While it has been practiced in various forms for hundreds of years, modern iridology takes advantage of both digital imaging and manual techniques to help determine a patient’s overall health level.

To make these observations, trained professionals called iridologists use iris charts. This divides the iris into zones that represent certain parts of the human body.

Iridology was first popularized in 1881 by Dr. Ignatz Von Peczley in his book Discoveries in the Field of Natural Science and Medicine, where he published the first iridology chart. Subsequently, Dr. Bernard Jensen compiled one of the first modern charts in 1950.

The practice is more commonplace in Europe than in North America, but is growing in its adoption. A study involving 800,000 patients discovered that iridology can be an effective form of diagnosis in as many as 85% of cases.

A trained iridologist can recognize and identify patterns in nerve bundles known as trabeculae which are pervasive in the iris. These nerves display information relayed by the oculomotor nerve from various organs and systems in the body to give an indication of their state of health.

When examining a patient’s eyes, an iridologist will generally look at ~

~Iris colour
~Brightness (i.e. lightness or darkness)
~Placement and shape of the trabecular fibers
~Rings and other discolourations/shadings in the white part of eyes

Healing Therapies {9} ~ Urine Therapy

“The Romans did it, the ancient Chinese cultures did it and it’s one of the most healthy substances you could ever drink. Drinking urine for medicinal purposes can be traced to societies in ancient Egypt, China, Hindu and Aztec histories.

What’s In Urine Anyway?
Urine contains enzymes, vitamins, minerals not to mention it’s completely structured hexagonal liquid. Because it is created by your own body, it helps to re-educate your immune system as what is foreighn and what is domestic. It helps to teach your system and fine tune it to recognize pathogens and invaders. It’s similar to reading a book for the second time or watching a movie for the second time.

You catch so much more and learn so much more by reading a book all over again. It’s the same with drinking your own pee. Besides having so many life giving and essential qualities, it becomes a teacher to every cell in your body.

If you think about it everything in life is a cycle. We’ll compost using old scraps of food, manure and newspapers and feed that to organisms who biologically transmutate that into mineral rich soil. We’ll take that soil and plant plants into it. Then we’ll eat the plants and the cycle continues.

Think of urine therapy as composting for your body.

Why Drink Your Urine?
The reason for drinking urine is pretty simple really. Scientists know that urine is just a byproduct of the filtering of blood. It’s not just excess water. When blood cells, filled with oxygen and nutrients go through the liver, the poisons and toxins get pulled out and are eliminated with a bowel movement. This filtered and cleaned blood go to the kidneys where excess nutrients get taken out of the body. Plasma ultra filtrate (Urea) contains perfect ratios of nutrients, urea, enzymes, hormones, vitamins, antibodies and minerals.

It’s also antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial. The reason it is this way is because it’s a byproduct of the body trying to balance sodium chloride with water. Since urea can kill bacteria and fungus and drastically lower inflammation you’ll find it in many creams and lotions for use on the skin and hair.

Ever wonder why it’s a good idea to pee on your foot if you ever get stung by a sting ray while swimming in the ocean? It’s precisely because it is antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral.

If you’re ever out of water and in a survival situation, drinking your own urine can be great way to survive.

Urine therapy has been used to overcome diseases such as Arthritis, Cancer, Hepatitis, Multiple Sclerosis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Diabetes, Herpes and adrenal failure. It is commonly used to combat venom from snakebites, jellyfish and beestings. Urine is the main ingredient in infertility drugs.

Also the drug Premarin is widely known to contain urea from horses.

Other Uses For Urea
You can even use a drop or two of your pee on your skin (for dry skin, candida, toenail fungus etc) and put a dab of DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide) right on top of it. The DMSO will drive those powerful antiviral and antifungal properties deep into the dermis of the skin and allow the healing to take place.

Urine therapy is powerful medicine and can be used in many creative ways!

It’s widely known in the medical community how great urea is for treating certain diseases. But why have we never heard about it? My opinion is that it’s very taboo in our culture to admit that you drink your own pee.

I think the main reason you haven’t heard about it is because it works and it’s 100% free. If there’s no money in something, the medical industry will avoid it like the plague and then demonize it so you won’t try it.

They have to protect their brand.”

Healing Therapies {2} ~ Oxygen Therapy

Oxygen is vital to sustaining human life. Every cell in the body needs oxygen to complete the metabolic processes that give life. Oxygen provides the fuel needed by the brain to function properly, and it helps the body fight off infection by boosting the immune system.

Mild oxygen therapy provides a highly effective way to increase the volume of oxygen in the blood and thus increase the many beneficial effects that oxygen has on the body.

The pressurized environment of the hyperbaric chamber allows up to a tenfold increase in the oxygen level of the blood plasma. Hyperoxygenated plasma and red blood cells travel to compromised tissues so that cells and tissues receive the oxygen they need to regenerate and heal. Oxygen saturation also greatly increases the ability of blood cells to modify their shape so that they can pass through restricted blood vessels and swollen tissues to deliver healing oxygen inflamed tissue. As a result, healing is faster and more thorough.

Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy also helps the body heal by giving the immune system a needed boost. When the cells responsible for protecting the body against infection encounter a bacterium, they require additional oxygen to fight off and kill the harmful agent. If the immune cells have insufficient oxygen to carry on the battle, bacteria quickly overwhelm the immune system, and infection occurs. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy ensures that the immune system and its infection-fighting cells have all the oxygen necessary to keep the body healthy.

Spiritual Healing {8} ~ Auric Field Tuning

Auric field tuning intends on raising your frequency and bringing your energy into alignment to optimise your health and wellbeing.

Solfeggio tuning forks are used on and around your body to balance and align your auric field. Working at a deep level, the vibrations help with clearing and releasing past patterning on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level, enabling you to step into the future with ease.

Your auric field surrounds your body, expanding around 5 to 6 feet. It holds the messages of your life within this area known as the aura. Working with the tuning forks within the layers the story unfolds. You will feel a definite shift from the very first treatment. Old injuries that have been holding you back for years can disappear. Habits that have seemed unbreakable can be released.

Spiritual Healing {7} ~ Past-Life Regression

~Do you have issues that seem unexplained in this life?
~Have you felt like you have lived somewhere before?
~Are you curious about what past lives you have lived?

Past life regression is a therapeutic technique used under hypnosis which brings you into a place of focus to access your past lives, where you are actively participating and communicating with your healer to guide you on your journey back. Sometimes, metaphors are shown to you rather than a past life.

If you experienced a trauma or grief in a past life it can affect you in this life, this style of therapy can support you to resolve or leave the issues in the past life so that it does not affect you in your present life.

Past life regression can support you with~

~An unexplained attraction to a place or person
~Clearing vivid dreams or nightmares
~Chronic unexplained illness
~Déjà vu experiences
~Feeling stuck or lost in your life
~Unexplained feelings or a sense of knowing
~An unexplained phobia or fear
