What is Holistic Alternative Medicine?
Holistic Alternative Medicine
Holistic Alternative Medicine (commonly referred to as Holistic Medicine, Alternative Medicine or Complementary Medicine) is vastly different from our “traditional” or conventional medical model practiced in westernized countries. Allopathic Medicine (your standard Medical Doctor or Hospital) relies upon the concept of identifying diseases or their associated symptoms, and then prescribing drugs to manage or combat those conditions. It is a system that considers the disease or symptom to be the actual problem, bypassing the underlying causes that produced the disease or symptom in the first place.
It uses a wide variety of precise tests, procedures and equipment to identify diseases and symptoms, and is the actual strength of this system. This model considers bacteria, viruses, fungi, molds, cancers and other foreign invaders to be some of the main causes of our illnesses; therefore, antibiotics and prescription drugs, chemotherapy and radiation are prescribed to kill them, or they are surgically removed.
Allopathic Medicine (Medical Doctors)
Unfortunately, modern medicine and it’s use of prescription chemical drugs frequently harm the body (and sometimes cause death) with what we term side effects. If you look at some of these “side effects” you can see that they’re not side effects at all – They’re Big Effects! When they harm or kill someone, this is referred to as Iatrogenic (physician induced) medicine, and it is actually the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States! Compare that with natural complementary medicine (herbs remedies, etc) and you can see what is really happening. Have you noticed like I have, that most of these doctors are highly unhealthy, and usually sick when you see them! No coincidence there!
If you want to experience peak health, then it is most wise not to take things into your body that will cause you mental, emotional and physical harm and cause you too look like your 80 when you’re 40. Words and names are powerful concepts in our consciousness. The language of modern allopathic medicine is filled with images of war: the war on cancer, for example. Verbs like control, combat, fight and irradiate connote strife. Invaders must be conquered. Yet when it comes to drugs, language is more euphemistic. If we said that the drugs are poisoning us rather than giving us side effects, we might not be so apt to use them on a long-term basis.
Herbal and Homeopathic Medicines
Naturopathic and Holistic medical physicians and practitioners seek to find the source of imbalance in the whole person and recommend changes that bring the person back to a state of optimum health, on all levels. This is accomplished first through a state of being (we are human Beings, not human Doings) finding the source of dis-ease (the absence of a state of ease, our natural state) and coming into alignment with our body’s wisdom. This is where they match what the cause of your disease, illness or condition is, and recommend the best Herbal Remedies or Homeopathic Medicine to restore you to complete health.
As Albert Einstein stated, we must solve the problem (dis-ease) at a higher level than its manifestation. If you just mask the symptoms of illness, and do not change the behavior, environment or underlying condition, it will surely return.
It’s like having your mechanic unplug the warning light and then tell you that the problem is now “fixed.” This may sound ridiculous but that’s exactly the type of treatments we typically encounter at conventional medical facilities. That’s why most cancer’s return after surgery, chemotherapy and dangerous prescription medications because the source of the problem has yet to be investigated.
Holistic vs Medical Approach
Naturopathic or Holistic Alternative Medicine is founded on the unity of mind, body and spirit. It is directly in line with modern quantum physics and mechanics, as well as modern biology. Quantum physics demonstrate clearly that everything has a wave/particle duality that is in essence a vibration. And that everything is in essence connected and not separate at all. Therefore you cannot “kill” or “remove” one part of a physical body without affecting the whole. Visit Mind Body Spirit for more information.
Our body’s natural state is wholeness and balance, and is always seeking balance. Our bodies are the true healers; we only need to listen to what it is telling us through the symptoms and feeling that we experience. Holistic medicine includes ADHD natural remedies, acne home remedies, natural anti-depressants to name a few. Every major and minor dis-ease or dis-turbance has a solution. You can find a natural herbal remedy for a whole lot of dis-eases that need to be brought back into healthy balance in our bodies.
Modern biology has demonstrated that we are not at the mercy of our genetic makeup, but instead control our gene transcription (which chromosomes are turned off or on) through our psychological state, emotional state, and interactions with our environment. How we view and respond to our environment is what controls how our genes express themselves.
Modern science also shows that our hearts, as well as our entire body has inherent intelligence “a non-local brain” that gives off energetic waves that can be measured with electronic equipment. This is called the “Wisdom of our Body.” Ancient cultures knew this and sought to provide our bodies with a balanced approach to wellness. And since our body is mostly water (70-80%) the quality of the water you drink is highly important. Choosing alkaline water or acidic ones (tap, bottled) will help keep your body and brain disease free.

David Wolfe, the founder of The Longevity Now Book is an expert on the subject of sustainable herbs, superfoods and holistic nutrition, and I like using his products because they’re ethically produced and mostly organic. I also personally use only organic foods and supplements, as I don’t want the toxic chemicals (GMO ingredients and pesticides) that are in non-organic food sources.
The foundation of optimum peak health is one based on the holistic health model. This includes keeping your body and mind moving through regular movement, resistance training and exercise, even if it’s just daily walking. Visit the blog: EliteFitness for more tips on how to achieve peak conditioning and health through elite fitness and performance nutrition. It can help you stay healthy, look years younger, feel years younger and perform at your highest level, all without a lot of stress.
I recommend that you take only Organic Vitamins whenever you possibly can, because if you want to be at your best, then you don’t want to introduce pesticides, GMO ingredients, and toxins into your body. Avoid GMO foods like the plague, as they will certainly cause on within your body. There are viruses and pesticides that are released when you eat these foods, and you will almost always end up with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) among other serious health problems.
