Some Information About Health Alternatives:
by Amandha Vollmer
An individual’s well being involves the person in whole. The basis of all disease is a lack of maintaining this wholeness (we can think also of it in terms of an imbalance), with the aim to bring the body and the mind into harmony through attention to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs.
There are many natural methods to health, far superior and beyond our modern day medical system, which primarily aims to suppress symptoms with expensive pharmaceuticals. The conventional system tends to overlook simpler roads to health, such as diet and mental health, opting instead for immediate drug therapy and surgery. Surely any logical being can see the problems with this system.
Natural medicine may seem new to many people, but in actuality, these are the first medicines and pre-dates the allopathic idea of the “magic bullet”. This is the seek and destroy mission of pills, which was born out of erroneous 16th century ideas, stating that disease was merely an increase in toxic material matter, hence blood letting, massive doses of mercury, and other barbaric practices from our historic doctors, a line that can be traced to modern day.
Our current alternatives which, out of necessity have been re-born and unearthed, are listed below with short definitions. This is by far, not complete in many ways, but will give the reader an idea of the vast methods available, so that we as a people can become empowered to find those methods which speak to us.
Vibrational Medicines: There is much we cannot see, but we know exists.
Reiki and Magnified Healing: The laying on of hands; the focus of love energy and higher vibrations from the hands to the chakras/auras of the body; intuitive healing; harnessing earth energy and universe energy; psychic empathy, the practitioner can feel the other persons pain and direct appropriate energy; balancing of the ch’i or the life force; balancing the chakras using intent and help with crystals. Dowsing: using a tool as an aid to psychic awareness of disease state/balance within chakras.
Naturopathic Medicine: Using knowledge of nature to heal the body, we are nature, not separate from it; various methods used: herbs allopathically (meaning: to reduce symptoms, similar to modern day medicine, except gentler), herbs energetically (i.e. Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbs used for synergistic properties, to balance ch’i, using herbs to direct the body to heal itself), acupuncture to generate/move the life force; Homeopathy: treating like with like in small, energetically potent substances, mimics disease state in the body to ‘convince’ the life force to cure patient quickly and efficiently.
Colour, Sound and Aroma Therapies: We only see colour because our eyes are able to translate the vibrational frequency. Using directed colour energy (from a projector; sitting in a specific coloured room; staring at a specific colour plate) to enhance mood, increase vibrations in the body to invoke own healing; sound therapy, chanting, music, affecting the body with certain vibrations to induce a health state in mind and body. Aromatherapy: using the vibrations of smell to invoke mental reaction, using the chemical properties of essential oils to aid the body in its cure
Meditation and Yoga
Silencing the mind to awake the “second attention”; to be aware of self and to self-correct behaviour; our actions have ripple effects, affecting others and returning to us (karma), to cease the mind’s chatter and connect with the subconscious, Transcendental Meditation: a method to produce healing alpha waves in the body (we create alpha waves when we sleep), another method to help tap in to the collective unconscious; Yoga: exercise to balance the body, learn proper breathing techniques, the yogic breath, stretching the body.
Thought Forms: Creating our Own Reality
Affirmations: Practice to create more positive states in the mind, a tool to aid in the creation of our own realities; our beliefs form our internal and external realities; the daily repetition of writing down what we wish to see materialized in the world (as practice)
How we think affects how we act. How we act, in turn, puts out energy which forms how others respond/react to us. Since we do not live in a vacuum, we soon realize that our actions form chains of events, in turn forming our reality as we see it. We therefore create our own realities through our beliefs and hence, actions.
It is then empowering to know that we can change our beliefs through our mind in order to change our current circumstances. We soon realize that we have choice in every action. Therefore we choose our own reality. We have every resource within us to find the answers and create a state of bliss and love within us and radiate this outward to every living thing.
We are more powerful than we give ourselves credit for. The new age, of which we are embarking, is the awareness/awakening of this knowledge, so that we can be responsible for ourselves and live in true spirituality. Spirituality is not religion. Spirituality is the knowledge which every person can access within themselves, to learn that we are all interconnected and divine. It is “know thyself” and through this we can open up areas of knowledge that we attribute to only to genius.
When we unlock/tap into this awareness, we realize that all humans are the same regardless of race, colour, or creed. Hence, there is no need for war, hatred, or jealousy.
Our thought forms can not only create our reality by our physical actions, but also by the power of our mind and the energy we send out. There is more and more scientific evidence, for those who require it, that this is so. This leads us to the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto who provides us with factual evidence, that human vibrational energy, thoughts, words, ideas and music, affect the molecular structure of water.

Water, this marvelous substance comprises over seventy percent of a mature human body and covers the same amount of our planet. Water is the very source of all life on this planet, its quality and integrity are vitally important to all forms of life. The quality of our life is directly connected to the quality of our water.
Let us come gently into our awakening.
