Title: Other People's Therapies

Circulating as I do, I hear and meet with numerous comments on health matters. The orthodox, the complementary, the alternatives. What strikes me is the great variety of therapies available. Affordable and not affordable. Choice appears to be dictated, by financial circumstances, lamentable as this is.

The majority of people do not have the opportunity to even choose the therapy that appeals. Some being victims of their own private nightmare choose the road to self destruction, eg, orthodox instead of economic management of financial resources. Too often they make do with the ANTI depressant, ANTI biotics, ANTI histamine and everything ANTI instead of harmonising. Is this accepting truce rather than peace? Curing rather than healing?

It could be that ignorance plays a fair part in this.

They are often not aware there is an alternative, eg a therapy that does not fight the invasive agent, wrecking the body with ensuing side effects but strengthen the natural defences for self healing, instead of self destruction.

Nature Cure was one and is still is in some way unique in this and very successful indeed, but, as still is the case, only available to those with means.

Now with the passage of time and growing awareness of META - physical at work, a whole new network of alternative / complimentary therapies have spawned.

Here are to mention not a few but the many:

Acupressure, Acupuncture, Alexander Technique, Applied Kinology, Aromatherapy, Autogenic Therapy, Bach Flower remedy, Chiropractic, Colour Healing, Cranial Osteopathy, Homeopathy, Hypnotherapy, Iridology, Polarity therapy, Psychotherapy, Reflexology, Rolfing Shiatzu, the Bowen technique, etc, etc

Last but not least, sharing a glass of wine and intimacies . . .my therapy!

Let us keep the spirit of SELF preservation alive and give voice to our convictions however daunting, and discover our own very effective therapy, unique to our SELF.
