In some cases a patient may require a combination of both natural and conventional treatments. Start by using nontoxic ways to help the body heal itself and only add conventional treaments when needed. Below are some specialists in holistic medicine that can help with chronic ailments for you and your baby, naturally!
Naturopaths-Naturopathic practitioners strive to find the cause of a disease using medicine based on the healing power of nature. They try to understand the patient as a whole through mind, body, and spirit. They may use a variety of therapies such as nutritional supplementation, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture.
Homeopaths- These practitioners use Homeopathy which is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative practices in North America. Homeopathy is a holistic gentle way of healing using diluted natural remedies derived from plants, minerals, and animals. The homeopathic theory for treating is letting “likes cure likes.” It’s taking a very minute dose of something that would create the same symptoms you are experiencing. By doing this, your own immune system is stimulated to cure itself. It is very safe even for pregnant women, children and sensitive patients. There are no side effects or toxicity. These remedies can also be used alongside most conventional medicines.
Chiropractors- Chiropractors focus is on the nervous system using manipulation of the vertebral column. By doing an adjustment, the chiropractor removes any disruption that may interfere with energy flow to the nervous system, which controls other systems like respiratory, digestive, muscular, immune and so forth. It enables it to function more optimally, so that the body can heal itself. Even babies can benefit from a chiropractic visit after a traumatic birth.
Acupuncturists and Acupressurists- Acupuncture and acupressure have been around for thousands of years, it remains to be strange to many but is continually being validated and is once again being used more and more. Acupuncture and acupressure are used to promote healing and to alleviate pain by stimulating areas along an “acupoint” with fine slender needles or pressure points. This stimulation to localized areas helps the body heal itself. The uses extend to backaches, colds, angina, headaches, tinnitus, glaucoma, tonsillitis, asthma, impotence and so on.
