Our body is very intelligent. It is constantly capable of maintaining balance and harmony in all its systems and on all levels of its expression. However, there are times in our lives when certain challenges create stress which can affect the fine balance that exists within us. It is at these times of disharmony and imbalance that homeopathic medicine can be a great support.
The homeopathic medicine is chosen to stimulate the body’s innate ability for self-healing in order to restore vitality and health. Homeopathy is a safe, gentle and effective complementary medicine. It is suitable for all ages and at any stage of life. Every stage in life brings its gains and its challenges both physically and emotionally. Homeopathic treatment eases the impact of these challenges whether it is given on its own or as an adjuvant to other complementary or conventional treatments.
Flower essences can assist by creating emotional balance and support when addressing specific areas of your personal development. They can also treat emotional and energetic imbalances surrounding physical ailments and mental health symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Essentially they are used to encourage self-awareness, a vital key to unlocking health and wellbeing potential on all levels.
Flower essences are a form of vibrational medicine similar to homeopathy. They are created via the water soluable properties of the flower or plant and are quite different to Essential Oils. The liquid used is a potentised derivitive which contains the signature or personality of the flower which we gain to strengthen and support us when taken as drops under the tongue. The only taste is of diluted brandy which is used to preserve the water.
Because flower essences contain no physical or biochemical active ingredients of the plant or flower they are safe to take alongside perscribed medicine. For this reason they are known as a complimentary medicine. They are also known as a wholistic (holistic) therapy as they treat the whole person on multiple levels, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. They are an ideal accompaniment to other natural therapy treatments and counselling.
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the relationship between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programmes).
NLP can help you programme your ‘vice’ into something you detest (great for food cravings), change negative beliefs, patterns & habits, eliminate phobias, increase motivation, and anchor positive emotional states.
Hypnotherapy is a technique which ties in beautifully with NLP. Hypnosis is a natural relaxed state; we enter in and out of a few times on an average day. For example, if you drove home tonight; do you remember the entire journey? No, because you were in a hypnotic trance. Ever tried to talk to someone glued to the TV, and can’t get through; yes, they were in a hypnotic state.
Hypnotherapy works by inducing a hypnotic state, which allows us to communicate directly with the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind controls our habits. During hypnosis, you are in control at every moment and will not do anything against your will.
NLP Hypnotherapy is great for increasing self confidence, reducing cravings, achieving goals, increasing success, reducing negative thoughts, reducing anxiety, eliminating addictions, quitting cigarettes, and weight loss.
A Naturopath works under the premise that the body has the capacity to heal itself if given the right conditions. Dis-ease is caused by a unique combination of factors (including biochemical, environmental, social, physical, emotional and mental factors) which are different in each person. By taking all these factors into consideration, the Naturopath aims to treat the cause of the problem. They identify and remove obstacles to the body, allowing it to bring itself back into homeostasis.
Part of the process of aiding the body to heal is to recognise areas of weakness in the body and to support and strengthen these systems. For example, if you have a cold, instead of targeting the virus or bacteria and suppressing symptoms, we work with the body by enhancing the immune system and other channels of elimination.
