My Holistic Health Views

Share it Please
I've been holding out on this post for a long time, because I thought I might come across as crazy. But the more blogs I look at, the more I realize that how I feel about modern medicine isn't a rarity. Lots of people have some views that I have.

With that said, I have a confession to make. I don't really have SMA syndrome. I didn't really lie. That's what the doctors told me I had when I had a CT scan done. However, the more people I saw who were into holistic healing, the more I realized that this was not the case. Each person I went to agreed that SMA syndrome was not my problem. There was actually a vaccination (DPT) stuck in my liver. Once that problem got sorted out, my small intestine was inflamed. And now my large intestine is causing me problems. My healing process has been like an onion. I keep peeling back layers and with each layer a knew problem shows up. Food allergies, emotions, experiences, the atmosphere, and a lot of other things have been contributing to my illness.

I decided to show you guys what methods of holistic healing I believe in. Actually, I believe in most holistic methods, but these are the ones I've had experience with first hand and know, for certain, that they work.

Acupuncture- This is a Chinese method that has been practiced for over centuries. The idea is to stimulate certain points on the body to cultivate health and well being. Not all acupuncture is done with needles. Just putting pressure on that point or using a special laser will do the same thing.

NAET- NAET (pronounced nay-et) stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Test. For this method, the person who practices NAET will have you touch a variety of objects, such as corn, sugar, grass, pieces of paper with emotions, experiences, etc. on them, to see if  you are sensitive to that particular thing. If you happen to be sensitive to something, say nuts, a vial (sometimes it's a piece of paper or another object) of nuts will be put on you so that it's touching your skin. After a certain period of time, the object is taken away and you must try and avoid nuts for 25 hours. Hopefully, by then, you won't be sensitive to nuts anymore. In severe cases, it takes more than once to clear on certain things. Not only can you be desensitized to food, but also emotions, events, experiences, and even people. Basically, you can be desensitized to anything.

Quantum Laser Therapy- Laser Therapy is almost like acupuncture, except it uses a purple laser (the purple is from the rock Amethyst) to communicate messages to your cells.

Essential Oils- Keep in mind that only Young Living oils actually work, because they are a company very concerned about it's customers. Some companies through together a mixture of chemicals and call it an essential oil. This can be dangerous to your health. Essential oils are pure high-grade oils that have been cultivated to perfection. Oils can help with almost any illness, from the common cold to cancer. This is one of my most favorite holistic methods and I use essential oils at least once a day.

Craniosacral Therapy- Craniosacral therapy is very complicated, so in a nutshell a therapist can sense one's life force, and it is from this force they can, for lack of a better word, "massage" your body to help boost your craniosacral rhythm or life force. This is my second favorite method of holistic healing.

Tens Machine- The tens machine, AKA "rife", sends frequencies into your body to help heal it. Even medical doctors have caught onto this method and it has been shown to help with brain abnormalities. The tens machine really works, but be warned, half the time it makes me feel really crappy afterward.

Trigger Point Therapy- Again, almost the same principle as acupuncture, except the theory behind this is that the knots (trigger points) on your body are causing pain elsewhere. For example, I have a not on my lower right back, but it is causing the left lower side of my stomach to hurt. By working through your knots, supposedly whatever pain you have will go away. It has helped my mom a lot with her vertigo.

Okay, that's it. I think. I try to avoid drugs, over-the-counter medicine, and antibiotics as much as possible. Don't get me wrong, if I have a broken bone I want the doctor to fix it, but I firmly believe that antibiotics are not the way to solve illnesses. Neither are vaccinations or drugs. Those can be cured by more natural means. I won't even have a cough drop, because gargling salt water and/or taking a teaspoon of honey do the same thing.

If you don't agree with my views, that's fine, but I thought I might just open up and share what I really think.

Inquiry of the Day:

Do you believe in modern medicine or holistic healing?

Be honest with me please! I really do care!


  1. I love this post! It's concise & informative. I'm definitely a huge believer in holistic medicine - addressing not only physical issues but mental & emotional health as well. I'd love to try acupuncture someday.

    1. Thank you so much! Your comment means a lot to me! I also believe in mental and physical health (as you can tell from my post) and think that there is definitely more to healing than meets the eye.

  2. This post really resonated with me because, like you, my healing process has very layered, starting with something on the surface (my skin) and going all the way down to various organs. Having worked exclusively with a holistic practitioner for the past 2 years, and finally feeling (and looking) better, I am a huge proponent of holistic healing. I would honestly venture to say that I don't really believe in modern medicine anymore. I believe we're all intricate systems, and we have to treat ourselves as an interconnected net of physical and mental being. When I sought the help of a standard physician, my symptoms were isolated, and there really was no time or thought put into helping me. One doctor just flippantly tried to give me a narcotic when I was experiencing aura, even though I stated I WASN'T getting headaches afterwards.

    I haven't tried the approaches you've mentioned above, but I've done a lot of detox, herbal remedies/supplements, but most importantly using my diet as my main "medicine." I've also learned to appreciate walking as healing movement (I'm a reformed long distance runner). The Chinese believe that walking massages your organs and promotes well-being. I definitely agree!

    This is a long reply, but I appreciated this post and wanted to chime in. Thanks for sharing!

    1. The long reply is great! I enjoy reading what other people have to say about my posts.

      I basically don't believe in modern medicine anymore either. I'm trying to convert my whole family to completely holistic healing methods. It's really hard.

      I wish my health could be mainly controlled my diet, but, unfortunately, that isn't the case. :( Thus the reason for all the holistic methods I've tried.

      Hope your healing process goes has continued success! Thanks for visiting and please stop by again!

  3. Sooo... I have a friend with SMA- is it because it wasn't just one thing that caused it? Or you didn't really have it? Or, ? I just want clarification :-) this friend is being ripped to shreds by the medical field, and I don't believe in "modern medicine" either. But I don't even know where to start with her! I was also curious, what oils do you use? Which herbs I mean?
    Thanks for what you do! I firmly believe our mess is our message if we let it be, so thanks!

    1. I ended up not having SMA but you're friend might. And it could be that she has SMA on top of other problems, which I think is most likely.
      My favorite essential oils, especially for gastrointestinal problems, are peppermint, oregano, thieves, ginger, and DiGize (a blend). I would recommend you try NAET it craniosacral therapy first. I hope you're friend gets better and this helped a little bit!


I love comments so please comment often! Thanks!
