Homeopathic and holistic approach to curing acid reflux or GERD are both natural cures to get rid of the disease. They are practiced by a lot of GERD sufferers who believe more on the body’s natural strength to heal itself rather than engaging it on medications and prescriptions that can have side effects in the long run.
These two approach to cure acid reflux are two different methods. Homeopathic remedies basically involve using the principle of law of similars wherein the factors (such as plants, animals, mineral substance) causing the symptoms of the disease on the individual are given as the treatments itself under the belief that it increases the effects of the treatment. The patients psychological and physical state are also being evaluated to design the right homeopathic remedy. They are generally considered safe as they use all natural ingredients that they are even prescribed to infants and pregnant women. They can come in the form of pellets, tablets, gels, oils, sprays and soap.
Holistic approach to cure acid reflux, on the other hand, focus on balancing the physical, emotional, psychological and over-all well being in order to achieve a state of balance. It is a form of healing which answers to the body’s demand for attention when its experiencing all sorts of pain and discomfort brought about by a disease. It can be considered a journey to healing one’s body by living better and being healthier in an attempt to achieve wholeness. It can be in the form of maintaining a healthy and balance lifestyle through proper diet and emotional and mental well-being.
Holistic Medicine refers to the system of health care that fosters a cooperative relationship among those involved and leads toward optimal attainment of physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual aspect of health.
The career outlook for a holistic health care provider is good. They make on average $45-$55 thousand a year. Holistic care is a growing field in the green market.
Some other terms associated with Holistic medicine are alternative medicine which is widely used by the public and many health care practitioners, complementary medicine which refers to the non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical techniques by conventional medical practitioners to complement conventional medical treatments like surgery, and natural healing which refers to the use of non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical techniques to help the patient heal.
Alternative medicine is usually applied to the medical techniques that are not considered traditional forms of healing and medicine. This also includes the practice of herbalism, acupuncture, and massage therapy.
Professional and Personal Qualities
Individuals interested in an alternative medicine career should be compassionate and willing to provide the necessary assistance to their patients. Since massage therapist usually work in health clubs, hospitals, corporate setting or in the field of education, a knowledge on basic holistic medical approach must also be considered and studied. Holistic health care providers should be able to look at the whole person, and analyze their physical, nutritional, environmental, emotional, social, and spiritual and lifestyle values.
Educational Requirements and Training Certifications
To be accepted into a program for holistic studies or alternative healing, schools usually require at least a two-year degree or bachelor’s degree. Many other schools offer professional certification and licensing in different areas such as acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal medicine.
Most holistic healers however are self-employed. Their salaries vary depending on the field they have chosen. Holistic healers in the public sector such as hospitals, clinics, and universities make more than those who are self-employed.
Holistic health care providers includes herbalists, acupuncturists, and massage therapists. People interested in the field of herbal medicine may start their education by taking correspondence courses at their local community college. Professional groups provide certification to members who have attained a certain level of training as herbalist. A person interested in acupuncture may find many accredited schools in the US. On the average, an acupuncture program lasts for 2-4 years. There are also master’s degrees available for students and doctoral programs are being considered at many acupuncture schools.

What are Allergies?
Allergies occur when antigens bind to IgE and this combined compound binds to Mast Cells within the body: Mast Cells then release Histamine and Serotonin in response to Antigens to try to defend the body against invading foreign substances.
Allergies are also caused by Eosinophils (specialized Cells of the Immune System) when they release Hydrogen Peroxidase at the site of the Allergy in an attempt to destroy what they “believe” to be Antigens.
Histamine is released during this process and is directly responsible for most of the unpleasant symptoms associated with allergies (such as itching, sneezing etc.).
Allergies can manifest in a variety of ways such as skin eruptions like hives, or nasal symptoms like hay fever, or migraines, or digestive allergies. The symptoms from allergies can sometimes be complex and not easily distinguishable as allergies. So blood testing should be performed to determine if you are allergic or not.
There are two forms of allergy tests, the first tests for immediate allergic reactions and measures IgE in the blood in response to allergens; this can be ordered from any medical laboratory. The second tests for the more insidious allergies and measures IgG in the blood in response to antigens, this usually requires more specialized laboratories to perform this test, such as Alcat. So if you are suffering from allergies it is best to have yourself tested so you know what foods and food additives you need to avoid.
It is interesting to note that Doctors are finally realizing that about 60% of the population has some degree of Celiac disease, or gluten-intolerance. And diabetes is becoming more and more prevalent, especially among children. Now doctors are also diagnosing both diseases in many people, finding a link between Celiac disease and type I Diabetes.
How to treat and deal with your allergies
It is best to directly treat the immune system when dealing with allergies. First and foremost the best is to avoid, if possible, the allergen you are allergic to.
If it is food based allergies you are suffering form, such as gluten intolerance, etc. and can’t find any creative recipes for your allergy diet then I would advise you get Fun with Gluten Free and Low Glycaemic Index Food! – by Debbie Johnson. Johnson is a very creative chef, who was the former owner and executive chef of the restaurant, The Golden Chalice Restaurant. Having read through her cookbook I can definitely say that Johnson knows what she is talking about. I highly recommend it.
Below is a list of nutrients available to help treat the body’s symptoms of allergies. You can try the following:
Quercetin, stabilizes the Cell Membranes of Mast Cells. This strengthening of Cell Membranes of Mast Cells causes the Mast Cells to be less reactive to Antigens (that are involved in Allergies) and decreases the ease with which they release their stored Histamine.
A combination of Ester-C [a particular form of Vitamin C] (2 – 4 g/day) and Quercetin, (1.000 mg – 1.500 mg/day) both are good natural anti-histamine agents and are therefore important in the natural treatment of Allergies. Quercetin acts directly on the intestinal tract to reduce reactions to dietary allergens. It inhibits production of histamine by stabilizing basophils and mast cells. Bioflavonoids (such as Quercitin) may help reduce the body’s release of symptom-producing histamine, explains Elliott Middleton, Jr., M.D., Ph.D. at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
Betaglucan and Resveratrol, ideal for chemical sensitive people: These patients get headaches, disorientation, muscle and joint pain, mood disturbances, short-term memory problems dizziness, difficulty concentrating, shortness of breath and stomach pains. These patients have reactions to pesticides, perfume, deodorant, household, cleaning products, toner, cigarette smoke etc.
With WGP Beta1,3/1,6-glucan, at least 75 % purified quality (1000 mg/day) and Resveratrol (produced by red grapes 20-60 mg/day or transresveratrol by Polygonum cuspidatum 100 mg); patients have little problems with perfume, toner, cigarette smoke, environmental pollutants and other toxins.
Vitamin C increases the oral bioavailability of Beta-D-Glucan
Resveratrol protects the brain from free radical attack and modulation of the activity the phase 1 and phase 2 enzymes also plays an important role in the detoxification effects of Resveratrol.
Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) helps to prevent and treat Allergies. This supplement should not be used by individuals suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity.
Rutin counteracts Allergies (by inhibiting the release of Histamine from Mast Cells).
Redbush Tea with Stevia is an important basis in the treatment of allergies and other intolerances. Redbush Tea (at least 1 litre/day or more) has anti-allergic effects, because it contains Quercetin. Studies have shown that the average 150 ml cup of Redbush Tea contains about 1.4 mg – 1.7 mg Quercetin.
Mangosteen Extract provides the potent antioxidant benefits of xanthone flavonoids from mangosteen fruit. These flavonoids possess antioxidant properties that may help neutralize cell damage by free radicals (I.a. environmental pollutants), allowing for the maintenance of optimal cell function. The xanthone flavonoids also help to support a healthy immune system and inhibit the release of histamine.
Reishi Mushrooms and Maitake Mushrooms prevent and treat Allergies, due to their Beta-D-Glucan content. Reishi mushrooms also reduce high histamine levels.
Ginkgo biloba alleviates Allergies by inhibiting the activity of Eosinophils (due to the Ginkgolide B content of Ginkgo biloba).
The above recommended nutraceuticals and herbs are recommended for general allergies. When trying to treat more specific allergies, such as skin allergies, hay fever, etc. it is best to consult a practitioner for more specific treatment, such as that offered by Homeopathy.
Homeopathic treatment will target your individual specific symptoms and help you to overcome you allergy sensitivities. Homeopathic doctors may also use auto-sanguineous therapy to deal with allergies which has about an 80% success rate in dealing with allergies. It is best to consult a homeopath for this form of treatment. I homeopath may also prescribe herbs that are better suited to your specific allergies.
Many of us suffer from back pain and serious health problems associated with back pain, compounded over many years, while others may only deal with limited back pain, with the occasional flair up or strain. Many people still have prolonged back pain, no matter what they seem to do about it. They buy back pillows, ergonomic chairs, change their posture, get massages, even take up yoga, but they still are confronted with back pain. If you are one of these people, then you are not alone, as the true cure for back pain might be finally within our grasp.
Doctors and chiropractors for years have tried to come up with treatments, and cures for back pain, but have had varied success. It has only been recently, in the latter part of the 20th century, that people started to take more of an interest in holistic medicine to treat their everyday symptoms. This basic premise has led many practitioners to pursue holistic treatment options for patients, especially for back pain, to find a more complete method of treatment. Through these grueling years of study, observation, and trial and error, they have developed a comprehensive treatment for back pain, called Visceral Manipulation Therapy.
Visceral Manipulation Therapy is based on the notion that our organs have inherent movement patterns, basically speaking, that they are not frozen in place. Their theory is, that not only do our organs need the ability to move, but need to be able to glide, slide, rotate or compress, when we are physically moving our bodies or when they’re standing still. When one of our organs becomes either displaced or compressed by one of its neighbors, it can create abnormal scar tissue if it does not function properly, which can result in chronic irritation or pain.
But only in recent years, scientists have proved that organs do have inherent moving patterns, and are connected with ligaments and fascia, which hold our entire bodies together. Visceral Manipulation Therapy allows the restrictions in your body to become free, and with proper treatment in time, it can relieve back pain almost permanently. It will also return the correct mobility patterns to your internal organs, thus enhancing fluid and chemical shifts that may be needed for healing and repair, while improving joint pain as well.
Visceral Manipulation can be a great option of back care if you are seeking an alternative, holistic method of treatment. Remember that traditional medicine only treats the symptoms of the problem, whereas holistic medicine goes after the root of the problem, and takes into account the entire health of the body. By treating conditions holistically, you may have better success, and overall increased health at the same time.
The texture and growth patterns of hair in black men and women is decidedly different. Black hair tends to be thicker and the rate of growth is slower. At the same time, it is usually very voluminous, wavy, and has a natural shine to it. Using the right hair products for black women, you can preserve the natural good qualities of your hair and make it healthier, stronger, and more lustrous.
The number one rule for hair growth, regardless of race, region or weather is to keep it hydrated. The more moisture there is in your hair, the faster you will see it growing. This is true for black women as well. Since their rate of hair growth is lower, most hair products for black women tend to focus on keeping the hair appropriately hydrated and moisturized.
What is a good hydration or miniaturization product, you might ask?
Besides several salon products, which I will list separately, the best thing you can do for your hair right at home is to oil it before going to bed. I personally recommend a mixture of coconut, olive, jojoba, and if you can procure it, jasmine oil. This mixture will work wonders on your hair and scalp health. Apply a generous quantity before going to bed and wash it away in the morning. You will feel a very noticeable difference in the shine and bounce of your hair.
Caveat: if you cover your hair with a cap at night, I recommend using a silk cap rather than a cotton one. Cotton can pull at the scalp and hair roots, leading to breakage over time. Silk does not have these properties and is a much more suitable material.
The next point is to use a high quality moisturizer. I personally prefer Aveda products but I’ve found that they might not be appropriate for black women. A much better alternative would be Karen’s Body Beautiful Deep Hair Conditioner. This works at scalp and roots, leaving you with luxurious, soft and naturally bouncy hair.
Besides a wash away conditioner, you can also opt to use a leave-in conditioner, though this is by no means a necessity. I prefer to use natural, organic products for this and recommend Oyin Handmade as well as Aveda’s leave-in conditioners. These cover your scalp and hair with a protective protein that not only strengthens but also imparts volume and shine.
Another essential hair product for black women is not even a product, it’s your diet itself. Excessively fatty food has your sebaceous glands working overtime, leading to greasy hair and scalp. Further, you need plenty of vitamins and minerals which are largely lacking in the average American diet. Therefore, I recommend using a multivitamin. The differences, not just in the health of your hair, but also in your skin and nails will be palpable.
Finally, make sure that you use a soft comb/brush and use it gently. I’ve seen far too many women plow through their hair leading to breakage. Avoid this unnecessary damage at all costs.

Carrots: Carrots are rich source of Vitamin A, which again is one of the best natural products one can have from the Mother Nature. Carrots being seasonal vegetable are not available at all times, but the benefits of carotene can also be had from nutritional supplements as well.
Flaxseed: Processed flaxseeds are considered very good natural product for women health, especially for the expecting mothers and the developing foetus, as it strengthens the mind and growth of the foetus. Health supplements rich in flaxseeds are also advised for women as it is not so easily available in the pure form. It helps fight the cancers of various types in children and women as well.
Eggs: Eggs protein is very good and is always advised by dietician to women as skin care tips. Eggs are also considered good for hairs, when applied.
Green Leafy Vegetables: Leafy vegetables and green veggies should never be missed out when we are talking about women health care natural products. These should invariably be included in the diet plan of women to ensure beautiful skin in addition to sound health.
