How many of us feel good? Not just “ok,” but vibrant and energetic? Health and well-being is your birthright, but this gets lost to stress, injury, and poor eating habits. Once you feel ill, in pain, or exhausted, it is hard to know where to turn for help. Some treatments will help in the short term but cause more problems down the line. So how do you know what to do?
Every person has their own unique path for healing, and each person is their own best health advocate. Complementary and alternative therapies are just beginning to be studied in the formal style of Western science. This means there is a vast array of healthcare options that have no backing from the western analytical model. Some complementary care practices are so new that actual studies have yet to be done. Or a healing technique may have been around for years, even millennia, and is only recently being assessed with clinical trials. Often there is disagreement in the scientific community as to the value of a given therapy. For someone seeking to improve their health, this exploration becomes a search for personal understanding. This class will present how to find your path including, which issue to tackle first, how to tell good information from bad, and the importance of a holistic approach.
