Integrative Holistic Medicine

“When a plant's leaves are turning brown, you don’t paint the leaves green: you look at the cause of the problem”.

Ear Acupuncture

Auricular acupuncture is a diagnostic and treatment system based on normalizing the body’s dysfunction through stimulation of definite points on the ear. While the earliest uses of ear acupuncture points dates back to ancient China, modern applications of auriculotherapy are based on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier of Lyon, France. The ear is said to represent the whole anatomical body, but in an upside down orientation. Nogier’s theory contended that the auricle could be compared to an inverted fetus, with the head represented on the lower ear lobe, the feet at the top of the external ear, and the rest of the body in-between.

Bach Flowers

The Bach Flower Remedies combine to make a system of 38 remedies discovered by Dr. Edward Bach in England more than 80 years ago. The Bach Flower Remedies remove negative emotions by flooding them with the positive energies from flowers. Dr. Edward Bach discovered that flowers in nature have the ability to affect our emotions positively. The energies from different flowers can remove our emotional pains and suffering. He made sure that when he died in 1936, his original Bach Flower system would be simple and easy for everyone to understand and use.

Nutritional Therapy

Nutritional Therapy is the application of nutrition science in the promotion of health, peak performance and individual care. Nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease, restore health, and determine people’s response to changes in the environment. Under certain circumstances and in some individuals, diet can be a serious risk factor for a number of diseases. Common dietary chemicals can act on the human genome, either directly or indirectly, to alter gene expression or structure. Dietary intervention based on knowledge of nutritional requirement, nutritional status, and genotype (i.e., “personalised nutrition”) can be used to prevent, mitigate or cure chronic disease.

Supervised Fasting

Fasting is defined as the voluntary abstinence from all food and drink, except water, as long as the nutritional reserves of the body are adequate to sustain normal function. Therapeutic fasting, under medical supervision, accelerates the healing process and allows the body to recover from serious disease in a dramatically short period of time by helping to heal the digestive system, reducing inflammation, increasing the production of growth hormone and using body fat as fuel.
