Inhaltsangabe: A survey of holistic self-healing techniques. Sub-titled "The Alternative to Doctors & Drugs is Within You," this is a well-written book on old and new natural self-healing approaches. It is both practical and inspirational, including accounts of exceptional survivors and pertinant quotes from a wide variety of authoritative sources. Personal practices and simple charts make this a most useful book in the quest for recovery and optimal wellness.
Vom Verlag: A book for those seeking alternatives to drug-based, high-tech and expensive medical treatment. There are sections on stress reduction, eating to heal, therapeutic fasting, as well as an inspiring, first-hand account of a cancer survivor. Good health is no accident. Learn to apply positive energy toward health recovery, wellness, disease prevention, and longevity.
Women feel particularly betrayed by the medical establishment. After centuries of witch-hunt propaganda against midwives and home birth, after tens of thousands of unnecessary cesarian sections and hysterectomies, and the DES and IUD fiascos, ignored or exploited by patriarchal medicine, women now lead the way in the self-care movement. (The first chapter of the classic "Our Bodies, Ourselves," by the Boston Women's Health Book Collective, is "Taking Care of Ourselves.)
Just when the limitations of drug-based biomedicine are becoming woefully apparent, an impressive array of alternative health practices is emerging. Some are ancient, such as yoga and herbology. Some are innovative and technological, like biofeedback and electromagnetic therapy. All work by naturally enhancing the body's own healing capabilities. Known generally as "Holistic health," the new medicine includes organic diet and supplementation, exercise and relaxation, acupuncture, hypnosis, vegetarianism, therapeutic fasting, massage, meditation, as well as emotional counseling, and psycho-spiritual training.
Throughout history, cultures have adopted a variety of explanations and philosophies in the continuing quest for health. Illness has been attributed in turn to evil spirits, divine retribution, and bugs. Our contemporary model is built largely on the contagion theory of disease, and therefore promotes medicines that fight harmful outside agents.
The holistic approach takes a broader view, identifying multiple causes (internal and external), while promoting personal immunity as well. Why does one person "catch" colds more easily than another? What's different about cancer survivors? Can we render ourselves more hardy and disease-resistant before medical intervention is necessary - and more resilient when illness does occur?
The holistic view says yes. For 80% of our health complaints - the lifestyle, stress, and behavior disorders - natural, long-term self-care methods are a viable alternative to drug-dependance, side effects, and costly, hi-tech intervention. The fundamental premise is that your body knows how to be well, given the opportunity and support.
Holistic health promotes organic, systemic "healing" and wellness maintenance, as opposed to periodic, symptomatic "cures." It is prevention-oriented, rather than pain-driven. For a society sick with stress, addiction, overindulgence and pollution, There's hope in the form of a simple, yet powerful whole-person self-care system that works better than drugs, starts at home, doesn't hurt, is cheap, fun, and lasting.
