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'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.
