There are many people who are interested in alternative health care options, particularly ones that are not based around pharmaceuticals and other expensive options. These people are likely aware of healthy eating, supplementation with vitamins and herbs, but they might be looking for other things that they can use. Luckily, there are a whole array of homeopathic and alternative natural health care options that they can consider. This article will give you a brief outline of three popular ways you can approach health care from a non-traditional angle.
Essential Oil Diffuseser
Aromatherapy is one of the more popular, and oldest, natural health care methods. The concept is based around the idea that there are healing properties to the scents of different oils. You will want to get essential oils as opposed to synthetic oils (sometimes these might be called fragrance oils). Essential oils are made from organic material such as flowers and herbs. Then you will want to diffuse them into the air. You can either do this via a cotton swab, or better yet, get a diffuser. These will mist them into the air lightly and give your entire room a pleasant smell. The scents are great for relaxation, which can reduce stress which is one of the major causes of illness.
Crystal and Stone Energy
Another ancient method of creating a healing atmosphere is to get healing stones and crystals. These might be anything from rose quartz to emerald fuschite spheres. You can either keep them on hand ( the emerald fuchsite spheres are round and polished and really great to use as a relaxation ball in your palm) or you can lay them on window sills so that they reflect the light and make the room bright with positive energy. You can either choose from polished stones that have been professionally cleaned and made to look beautiful, or you can get the crystals and stones in the raw state.
Finally, look into using sounds to make your mood better. A soundtrack of peaceful music, or natural sounds such as birds chirping or whales, can be a great way to reduce stress and make it so that your environment is quiet and peaceful. As mentioned, stress is one of the great problems leading to illness (high blood pressure, for instance) so any way you can effectively reduce the amount of stress in your life, the better.
