Many People Have Turned to Holistic Medicines and Treatments

We are living in an age when people are starting to see the dark side of all the chemicals being used in our products. People are now paying double the price to have something that is organic and free of the pesticides, hormones, fertilizers, and genetic modification that has become so commonplace in foods today. As part of the entire return to natural and healthy living, people are also turning to holistic medicines and treatments instead of seeking out addictive synthetic opioids and becoming dependent on big-pharma products. Some of the healing methods are new while others have been around since ancient times. Having stood the test of time, we know that methods like yoga and acupuncture are never going to go out of style. Let's take a look at some of the new and old holistic healing methods that are so popular today.

1 - Melatonin

Melatonin is a key part of your organic internal chemistry to help you start feeling heaviness in the eyelids and some weight in your limbs when it is very dark outside. This is your body increasing your melatonin levels on its own and preparing you for sleep every night unless light or other reactions interfere with the process. Working night shifts and sleeping during the day can really take a toll on your internal clock. The same is true if you live in a city with glaring lights and blaring noises that make it hard to rest soundly at night. Luckily, melatonin is now available in an oral supplement that will help you replenish your natural supplies. As a result, people across the country are now waking up and feeling more refreshed and comfortable in their own skin.

2 - Probiotics

The Greeks have long known about the health benefits of yogurt and probiotics. Probiotics are microorganisms that are most commonly ingested in yogurt because they are necessary to produce the yogurt cultures. They are a good form of bacteria that help our immune systems and digestive tracts. They help to breakdown the foods so that we can more readily access and benefit from the nutrients. Probiotics are the perfect example of how interconnected everything in nature is at its core. For, there are only a very small number of bacteria that are not beneficial to us as it turns out because the health of the host is important for a solid symbiotic relationship.

3 - Yoga

Yoga originated over 5,000 years ago in ancient India. It provides so many numerous health benefits for young and old alike that it can be hard to sum them up in a brief paragraph. Not only does Yoga force you to hold and tone muscles, but while doing so it also helps you increase your flexibility, coordination, and balance. Yoga can also help rejuvenate cartilage by stimulating the joints that never go through a full range of movement otherwise. On top of this, it will improve your posture and relieve pain as a collateral result to all the stretching and toning.

4 - Acupuncture

Acupuncture is something difficult to research in a lab because it depends more on the professional skill of the acupuncturist than any verifiable data. When a girl had recently come down with a case of hiccups that would not subside, no matter what remedy or medication she tried, an acupuncture treatment proved to be the solution. Acupuncture is a form of healthcare that is hard to nail down because the acupuncturist has to determine how the nervous system of the body is responding to various needles being inserted in selective spots. But, it has long been associated with relaxation and pain reduction in the upper back, neck, and head.

5- Reiki

Reiki is like acupuncture, a holistic therapy that doesn't just work on the body but also works in the mind and spirit. But, rather than using needles to help the body relax and readjust its center of spiritual focus, Reiki involves the use of a Reiki healer using his hands to transmit healing vibrations into the afflicted soul. The process can cause patients to fall asleep because it is so effective in ridding the mind and body of external stressors to promote a focus on healing. There is medical research to demonstrate how stress can change the chemistry of our bodies and make it hard for us to heal.

6 - Essential Oils

Natural oils are also beginning to find favor in the holistic community. Fish oil has long been known to be an excellent source of Omega-3 vitamins which are known to reduce bad cholesterol, improve brain function, and to protect the heart. Coconut oil is one of those unique oils because of the high levels of lauric acid and known antimicrobial properties among other benefits. CBD oils are now becoming so popular that they are being sold at gas stations and convenience markets for people on the go to help them get a good night's sleep, relieve pain, or reduce anxiety. CBD oil reacts with natural receptors in your immune and nervous systems to create a calming effect which promotes healing and reduces inflammation and pain dramatically.
