Acupuncture is just one natural medicine therapy in a basket of therapies referred to as 'Natural Medicine Therapy'. Other therapies can include Reiki, Homeopathy, Nutritional Counselling, Lifestyle Management, and Massage. They all seek to 'BALANCE'. Natural Medicine originated hundreds of years ago in Mesopotamia and Egypt. It began with a physician by the name of 'Avicenna' who believed that disease was caused by transgressions or unregulated behaviour.
Natural Medicine seeks to balance mind, body and spirit. An unbalance occurs when a foreign pathogen or toxin enters ones' etheric space or aura. It is similar to a hole in the ozone layer of the atmosphere. It has now entered the spirit or mind. Stress, fatigue, improper nutrition, anxiety, improper sleep patterns, or unregulated behaviour plays an important role in what happens next.
The immune system tries to mount a proper defence against the foreign pathogen whether it be viral or bacterial. It has now entered the body. If one is stressed, over tired, or is following unregulated behaviour such as improper nutrition, the immune system cannot fight the pathogen. At this point, the pathogen enters the cellular layer of the body and begins producing more cells. One becomes sick with a cold, flu, or more serious diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Colitis, or Arthritis.
The job of Natural Medicine Therapy is to bring the body back into balance and naturally and gently excrete the toxin from the body. In other words, close the hole in the ozone layer. Acupuncture is one Natural Medicine Therapy that is used to bring the body back into balance or homeostasis. Acupuncture seeks to balance the energy across the meridians and restore wellness and balance. When the foreign pathogen is released, energy begins to flow in a balanced way throughout the meridians. Inflammation has been reduced. One feels well. Natural Medicine Therapy is focused on releasing imbalances from the mind, body and spirit and restoring wellness and balance to the individual.
Today, Natural Medicine is becoming ever more popular as people seek a non-invasive, gentle way to restore wellness and balance to their individual health. Natural Medicine is being combined with Conventional Medicine to form a new medical model referred to as, 'Integrated Medicine'. Both are working together to bring balance and wellness to the mind, body, and spirit.
