With more than 38% of American adults using alternative therapies as a form of healing it’s no surprise that increasingly people are turning away from traditional medicinal treatments. Our desires for using complementary therapy stems from the need to be treated as people, rather than an illness or issue that more conventional medicine looks at. There are a range of alternative medical systems to take your pick from which includes anything from using colors for our health, eating the right kind of foods or applying the ancient skills of meditation or yoga. But what are the benefits of using alternative therapies for common ailments?
Improve migraines with light therapy
Choosing a therapy that complements the ailment you have is a step in the right direction to taking charge of what happens to your body. Deciding to use green light therapy for combating migraines and headaches can considerably help to eliminate pain from severe headaches and will combat the alternative of having to sit in the dark, waiting for the pain to be lifted. You also don't have to worry about the worries of side effects of conventional medicine and help your body return to its natural balance.
Using salt rock therapy for asthma
Gaining in popularity is the use of salt therapy for helping to relieve inflammation, congestion and breathing issues. It is a non-invasive treatment where a person sits in a salt room and inhale dry salt into their lungs, thereby loosening congestion and drawing out inflammation. Regular salt therapy can ease breathing, coughing and wheezing without having to rely heavily on prescription drugs, or in some cases, helping conventional medicine be more effective. There are more than 400 salt caves in the USA but if you can't afford to travel to a salt cave, you can buy salt inhalers to aid any breathing problems as an alternative.
Naturopathy help for psoriasis
People who use prescription drugs will generally see their health or levels of pain improving but as soon as they stop taking the drugs, the pain returns. Practitioners of alternative medicine on the other hand look at ways to work out the root of the problem, and in doing this, can help give us a better quality of life with little side effects. This is particularly true of using naturopathy to treat psoraisis whereby treatment given is based on each individual's physical, mental and emotional factors and looks to changing diet to keep the digestive system healthy so that we improve thewellness of our mind, body and spirit
When we make a positive choice in our lives we’re also making a choice to changing our lifestyle in order to be a more active participant in how we treat and heal ourselves, and this in turn will provide us with a more rounded, spiritual self.
