Today we would like to bring your awareness to a topic that is crucial to our existence here at The Lounge. Holistic Healing, formerly known as 'Alternative Medicine.' You may be wondering what exactly, Holistic Healing is all about. I am happy to say that we will be chatting here about what it is, why it's important to us and how it differs from and complements traditional medicinal techniques and treatments. Before we get started I would like to mention that Holistic or Alternative methods have been used for centuries, so it is not something new to us, rather something we must re-learn in order to heal ourselves and the planet. Lets get started, shall we?
You may be familiar with the name Hippocrates - He was the first Greek Physician over 2400 years ago to formulate the deeply rooted concept of "The Healing Power Of Nature." This key statement is the foundation of and central principle to naturalistic medicine. In the present day, we face a divide - between traditional and non-traditional healing practices. How do they differ? How has medicine and the way we look at healing ourselves evolved over 2400 years? In a clinical sense, conventional doctors aim to treat and diagnose ailments using prescribed medications. Whereas Holistic doctors tend to use vitamins and other herbs, or remedies. The difference is subtle and they both have their place in the world.
However, when it comes to healing ourselves - self care and internal alignment often go a long way to get us there. Holistic techniques focus on the body as a whole, traditional medicine tends to spot treat and think in terms of 'what if' preventative measures. Holistic healing often comes after options become minimal from a clinical standpoint. You may be aware of the growing number of antibiotic resistant diseases that are becoming more popular among us. In order to maintain a life of longevity we must ensure that our body is equipped, naturally - to ward off disease. Modern medicine can be very helpful, yet we have to be conscious of error. Holistic healing often creates minimal to no negative side effects, after all, we are nature.
The information on this website perfectly depicts and dissects the contrast between modern and traditional medicine and their techniques, methodology, and focus.
