Full Of Life
When people describe themselves as "sick" or "unwell", they are of course stating a simplification. There is in reality a scale of health, all the way from having no life at all (zero on the above scale) up to being full of life vigor (10).
Have you ever walked down a major street in Hong Kong and looked at the people coming your way closely? If you have, you may observe furrowed brows, worried looks, dark circles under the eyes, blemished skin and pale complexions. It is not often that pass someone who LOOKS really well, whose hair has a natural shine, whose eyes sparkle, who is full of vitality and enjoyment of life.
On the above scale, most people look like they are in the range of 3 to 6. According to modern medicine, they have no identifiable disease, but yet clearly all is not well. How can they perform to their maximum potential in their work or enjoy their leisure when they are so far below their health potential?
What Are You at?
Now have a closer look at the scale above and put YOURSELF on it by circling the number, which is the closest description of your health at present. Now circle a second number, which best describes where you would like to be in 6 to 12 months’ time. It need not necessarily be 10; 8 may satisfy you.
Bridging The Gap
How do you bridge the gap and get to where you want to be on the scale? It won’t happen by accident. Unless tou take positive actions, you are likely to gradually go DOWN it rather than UP it.
Here are some ideas to get you to where you want to be:
1. Contact Reflex Analysis
A diagnostic tool developed by Dr. D.A. Versendaal with a team consisting of a medical doctor, a dentist, a veterinarian, a pharmacist and a nurse over the past 30 years.
Research has proven the human body to be a computer, made up of the BRAIN (electrical generator and memory bank) and hundreds of miles of electrical wires called nerves. These nerves connect every organ, gland and tissue of the body. These nerves also connect with fuses or breaker switches called CONTACT REFLEXES. By contacting these reflexes, using the body’s muscular system as an indicator, we are able to monitor the functions of the body system.
Physician may now discover the prime cause of the problem, apply the appropriate whole food supplements, and render the adjustments which will correct the imbalances of the body system.
2. Nutrition Medicine
The right combination of the whole food supplements, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other natural substances can give your body all the correct raw materials to function to its full potential. We are not referring here to a multivitamin tablet, which may or may not be suitable for you. We are referring to a personally tailored program of supplementation designed for your individual biochemical makeup, a program which is regularly reviewed and altered according to your changing needs.
Founded in the early 1800’s by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, homeopathy uses natural energies extracted from plants, minerals and other substances to stimulate the human immune system to "cure" the illness and disease. After all, drugs won’t move you up the scale of health. It takes ENERGY and VITALITY to move you up the scale and this is exactly what homeopathic remedies are made of.
The British Royal family has used homeopathy for several generation.
4. Herbal Medicine
A wide selection of herbs for general illnesses, as well as specific Chinese herbal formulas to fight serious diseases.
By making skeletal spinal adjustments in your back, your body’s nerves and muscles are able to relax and free up any painful back, neck, shoulder, arm or leg.
When the nerves in the spine are made to relax, they help all of your internal organs to function better and promote a good state of health.
6. Colon Hydrotherapy
Colon cancer is the second largest "cancer killer" of people in Hong Kong.
It has been established that regularly "cleaning" the large intestine with warm, clean, filtered water, patients will improve their overall health, promote smoother skin and improve their bowel movements.
Detoxification through colon cleansing is probably the quickest and fastest way to improve your general health.
7. Constitution Hydrotherapy
Used to invigorate the blood and lymphatic systems, this treatment is administered by placing hot and cold towels across the patient’s chest and back. A small electrical stimulus is applied to improve the lymphatic flow and enhance the healing process. Improved blood flow feeds and oxygenates the cells and removes toxins more efficiently and constitutionally builds the total health of the patient.
Proven methods by naturopathic physicians in North America over the past 60 years are suitable for all ages.
Lumbar and cervical traction, hot-cold packs, short-wave diathermy, ultra-sound, laser, transcutaneous neuromuscular stimulation, interferential currents, low-voltage, micro-currents, etc. are used as adjuvant therapies to assist the body to recover.
9. Foot Reflexology and Massage
Foot reflexology and body massage are ancient techniques used to relax and stimulate the body’s tired, stressful muscles and help the body organs to function better.
10. Color Therapy
Pure color lights (i.e. red, green, blue, etc.) are used to stimulate the hypothalamus which regulates the various function of the body including the autonomic nervous system and the endocrine system.
11. Ozone Therapy
A tool to combat the hypoxemic state of the body’s cells.
Devices that generate various forms of electro-magnetic energy are utilized to regulate the bio-energetic fields of the body, which plays an important role in maintaining the normal function of the body.
13. Bach Flower Remedies
Modern research has clearly demonstrate the connection between our mind, emotion and our physical health. Thirty-eight Bach flower remedies can be used to resolve the underlying emotional and mental turmoils in our lives.
By using essential oils made from flowers, herbs and other natural elements, headaches, tension, stress, colds and flu symptoms are relieved.
15. Computerized Therapeutic
Although an experimental tool, computerized testing are used by many doctors to determine the patient’s overall "health and wellness".
Over 150 tests can be administered to discover various bodily internal "weaknesses" and "inflammations".
There are of course many other possible ways of improving your health. Good eating habits, regular exercises, adequate rest are essential. There are yoga, Reiki or Qi Gong, Cranial osteopathy, Alexander technique, and so forth. The list is a almost endless.
If you plan includes contact reflex analysis, nutritional medicine, homeopathy, herbal medicine, chiropractic, colon hydrotherapy, constitutional hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, foot reflexology and massage, color therapy, ozone therapy, bio-energetic, Bach flower remedies, aromatherapy or computerized therapeutic testing, we may be of assistance in your journey to better health.
