About This Course

Would you like to learn more about natural health but don't know where to start? If so, then this is the course for you! We'll discuss the various stages of health and illness, and you'll discover that true health means wholeness of the mind, body, and spirit. You'll start a personal health journal to evaluate your current lifestyle and observe how your behaviors can affect your health. We'll also explore naturopathy, which seeks ways for the body to heal itself. You'll find out about proper breathing techniques that enhance health, and you'll learn the value of hydrotherapy, diet, biorhythms, and fasting. We'll also examine using the power of the mind for healing the body--discussing brain function tests, visualization, and relaxation therapies. You'll see the great power of belief. Then we'll delve into vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, free radicals, and the basic requirements that constitute a healthy diet. After our talk, you'll be able to develop menus that improve health. We'll also look at herbal healing, aromatherapy, body therapies, massage techniques, osteopathy, chiropractic, T'ai Chi, reflexology, yoga, Feng Shui, therapeutic touch, natural remedies for common emergencies, and much more. By the end of this course, you'll have begun taking charge of your own health and healing!

Review

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.
