I've always known that having a positive attitude goes along way but I didn't know that it could help your body heal. I learned that being healthy means wholeness, which is a balance and harmony of the body, mind and soul. Your body has the ability to heal itself and that everyone has to work at staying balanced. I learned how important clean water, air and food are and that sleep is nature's number one healer. All these things seem so simple, but most people have forgotten about them.
This class has been great for my personal learning and enrichment. There are a lot of areas I did not know or didn't know as much about. There are numerous things I will take from this with me in life, especially the section on mosquitoes! This is one of those classes where you question why this information isn't more common place or a requirement in school or even integrated somewhat. The ideas, theories and methods are ones that can help anyone and seem so common sense even though they really are not and there is so much garbage you would need to sift through if researching everything that is presented here on the internet. Definitely one of my favorite classes to date! Thank you!
There were many aspects of this course that I found interesting. I enjoyed the information and discussions of how herbs, oils, and nutrition can be used to heal. I am very fascinated by natural remedies and found this information very useful. However, the topics covering breathing, visualization, and maintain balance were the most enlightening and useful topics that I hope to continue to learn about and focus on in the future.
Since talking about the importance of proper breathing in Lesson 2, I have been more aware of my own breathing habits. I am more aware of how my breathing changes and how those changes affect me, my mood and my body. Being pregnant has also pushed me to think about breathing more and how I will control it to help me deliver in a calmer way.
Reading about visualization in Lesson 3 was really powerful for me because it reinforced something that I have been doing for many years.
I believe herbal therapy and aromatherapy go hand in hand in relation to self-healing in every aspect of life. I’ve loved learning more about these subjects and being able to directly apply them to my every day life. I have been infatuated with learning more and more about these subjects in particular.
This course was perfect for giving an overall introduction to whole living. The information was very valuable and the recommended sites and reading made researching easy. The Instructor's presentation of the topics and feedback was excellent. It would be nice to take other courses related to the presented information.
I have learned such a vast amount of information during the past six weeks and enjoyed each lesson. I learned that health is wholeness of mind, body and spirit working in harmony. Also, quality sleep is vital for good health. I will always carry this knowledge with me and use it in making future decisions to my daily routine.
My eyes were open to new ways to help others as Naturopathic Medicine is becoming a more widely used and accepted practice. I also learned that Naturopaths do not treat diseases and that they only try to prevent them. It is exciting to see practitioners incorporating all types (i.e., naturopathic, physical, environmental, oriental, botanical, and anthroposophical) into their practices, as well as providing enzyme therapy, living food therapy, and clinical nutrition to their clients.
I have enjoyed this class! I've learned many things in regards to how to better take care of myself and my family. I'm looking for natural ways in healing.
We started off by discussing how having good health means that our whole self, which includes, body, soul and spirit have to be working properly in order for us to have the wholeness that we want to attain.
I learned that illness has mental and physical aspects. Also, I learned that signs appear before sickness or disease occurs. This one spoke to me, because I have a tendency to continue to go on hoping that the symptoms will go away instead of taking the time to find out what the symptoms are telling me.
