Organic Food and Complementary Therapies

When thinking about your health and the health of your family organic food is only one aspect to consider. There are many other ways to help you maintain a healthy mind and body. If for example you have had a bad diet in the past and are in need of help there are many different complementary therapies that can give you that little extra boost that you are in need of.

This doesn't just apply to those who have had or have bad diets, even people with brilliant diets may also need extra help. Complementary therapies can also be used to help many different ailments. In our modern society it is not just bout the food that we eat, there are so many other factors we have to consider. For example the pollution in our air and water and the stress of our hectic lives, these factors can cause many problems.

There are many different complementary therapies around and here is a list of just some:

  • Reiki - This therapy is practiced by either laying the hands on different parts of the body, or very close to the body. The Reiki practitioner uses spiritual energy (Chi) and channels this energy to treat each individual. The spiritual energy (Chi) used is our body's own energy channels and also the universal life energy or divine.
  • Crystal Therapy - This therapy uses crystals to aid and promote healing within our body. Usually the crystals will be placed around or on you. There are many different kinds of crystals each has their own properties and energies.
  • Art Therapy - This therapy uses many different kinds of art materials to aid reflection and self-expression. Being good at art is never an issue, the exercise is just about expressing your feelings and thoughts.
  • Shiatsu - This therapy uses the energy lines in your body and finger pressure to correspond with these lines. The aim is to balance the energies within our bodies. Its principles are taken from acupuncture without the use of needles.
  • Iridology - This therapy is used to identify any ailments or illness, using the persons eyes in particular the iris. It is a non-invasive way of examining a persons health.
  • Aromatherapy - This therapy uses essential oils taken from plants, which are known for their theraputic properties. They can be used in a bath, massage, inhaled or for oil burners.

There are many other therapies including Music Therapy, Alexander Technique, Acupuncture, Counselling, Reflexology, Chiropractic, Hypnotherapy and Colour Therapy. The website I know of with all these therapies discussed in detail is well worth a visit. It has all the therapies accreditation boards and councils listed for extra help and knowledge, self help techniques, articles and a directory of therapists listed by county.
