Yes, you can effect change in the world..

September 26, 2014

Dear Holistic Providers,

The world in which we live is rapidly changing and evolving.
As our population grows and expands, the need for healing and love also grows and expands. Traditional medicine is often beyond the economic reach of millions of people worldwide.
Complementary and alternative medicine has much to offer those who suffer. However, they must be made aware of what our individual and collective therapies have to offer. To that end I am proposing that you join us in creating a World Wide
Holistic Health Day.
For this day we ask Providers world wide to sponsor Holistic Fairs at your local schools, centers, churches, synagogues or temples. These Fairs can offer free classes, samples of your work, or sample products. By raising the level of awareness of those who can benefit from our services, we raise the Wellness Quotient of the World and help create a healthier happier world.
Won’t you please join forces with us and be part of this grass roots movement?
“ Be the change you want to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi

Thank you,

Lucrezia Pierro

2010-05-07-coughsyrup.jpgMost of us want a quick fix when we are sick. Who wouldn’t? The problem with this, however, is that a quick fix isn’t always possible — and in many cases, it’s not even the best medicine.

When I was taken to a hospital in Thailand 15 years ago for what appeared to be amoebic dysentery, I had a deep sense that medicine was not the only answer to my illness. I had been away from my American cultural norm for six months, and was opening up to new ideas and perspectives (in particular through the practice of meditation and yoga). While I knew that medicine would probably help subside the painful and life-threatening symptoms of the dysentery, I knew deep inside that medicine was only one piece of the puzzle.

As I lay there in the hospital bed for what seemed like endless hours, I came to realize that whatever was going on with me went much deeper than the symptoms I was experiencing on the surface. It wasn’t just my physical body that needed to be cured, but my mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies were asking to be healed. Thus, my healing work began.

What I am talking about here is the difference between curing vs. healing. While I was brought up under the conventional medicine belief system where prescribed medications were considered the “cure” for my various illnesses as a child and young adult, the experience in Thailand woke me up to some other possibilities for healing. In short, for the first time I discovered my own power to heal.

Enter: holistic medicine.

There is no question that the relationship between holistic medicine and conventional medicine has been a contentious, or maybe more apt — ignored one — for many years. Those who prescribed to holistic medical thinking and action were considered “on the fringe,” New Age “woo-woo” types, or flat out ignorant. Understandably, those who prided themselves on their rational minds and put an emphasis on the physical world (at the expense the “unseen” one) would not want to consider that there might be more to healing than treating the physical body.

Today, however, due to the work of some particular individuals — we’ve moved on a bit from these stereotypes.

2010-05-07-CarolineMyss_blog.jpgOne of these outstanding individuals is Caroline Myss, Ph.D. Caroline, a world-renowned medical intuitive, author, and speaker in the field of health and healing, has been a pioneer in courage in the health care field. In her book, Anatomy of the Spirit, she points out: “Healing begins with the repair of emotional injuries.” She explains, in other words, that instead of illness being considered simply a result of germs and genetics, it is essential to consider the emotional component of illness.

 

 

“Holistic and conventional medicine take two different attitudes toward power: active and passive,” says Caroline. “The chemical treatments of conventional medicine require no conscious participation on the part of the patient … When a person is passive – with an attitude of ‘just do it to me’ – he does not fully heal; he may recover, but he may never deal fully with the source of his illness.”

In contrast, she explains, holistic medicine considers the patient’s willingness to participate fully in his or her own healing as necessary for its success. “Healing is an active and internal process that includes investigating one’s attitudes, memories, and beliefs with the desire to release all negative patterns that prevent one’s full emotional and spiritual recovery,” says Caroline.

To put it simply, when you give your authority over to your doctor to “cure” you, you may be missing out on an important part of your healing process (aka the emotional, psychological, and spiritual stresses that were part of the illness). If conventional medicine cures your symptoms, but not the underlying causes, Caroline and other holistic medical experts say there is a high possibility that your illness will come back.

Rosemary, one of the world’s best herbs.

July 19, 2013

 

Rosemary

2. Rosemary

Pairs well with: Potatoes; citrus; honey; garlic; onions; chile peppers
May help: Enhance mental focus, fight foodborne bacteria.
Recipe to try: Rosemary Flatbread with Yellow Split Pea Spread and More Rosemary Recipes

In ancient Greece, scholars wore rosemary garlands to help them study—and one recent study found that people performed better on memory and alertness tests when mists of aromatic rosemary oil were piped into their study cubicles. Rosemary is often used in marinades for meats and poultry, and there’s scientific wisdom behind that tradition: rosmarinic acid and other antioxidant compounds in the herb fight bacteria and prevent meat from spoiling, and may even make cooked meats healthier. In March, Kansas State University researchers reported that adding rosemary extracts to ground beef helped prevent the formation of heterocyclic amines (HCAs)—cancer-causing compounds produced when meats are grilled, broiled or fried.

SAGE, ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST HERBS.

July 18, 2013

1. Sage  

Pairs well with: Squashes; parsley; rosemary; thyme; walnuts
May help: 
Preserve memory, soothe sore throats.
Recipe to try: 
Sweet Potato & Turnip Mash with Sage Butter and More Sage Recipes

Today’s herbalists recommend sipping sage tea for upset stomachs and sore throats; one study found that spraying sore throats with a sage solution gave effective pain relief. And whoever gave the herb the wisdom-connoting “sage” moniker may have been onto something: preliminary research suggests the herb may improve some symptoms of early Alzheimer’s disease by preventing a key enzyme from destroying acetylcholine, a brain chemical involved in memory and learning. In another study, college students who took sage extracts in capsule form performed significantly better on memory tests, and their moods improved.
