Alternative Medicine
Isn’t Crazy

If you were like me, you might have thought “what’s with all this woo-woo stuff? “ I found out something that often gets dismissed as too out-there or even downright crazy: alternative healing. You know, the stuff like acupuncture, herbal remedies, energy healing, and all that weird stuff. But hear me out – it’s not as bonkers as some might think. In fact, it can be pretty darn effective!

Personally, I’ve delved into this world, and not only helped heal myself from a rare disease called Anti-Gad 65, but I also actually became a practitioner! Now, I’m not saying I’m cured, but went from not walking, then walking with a walker, then a cane and now on my own! Well, sometimes I use my cane but not as frequently.

Now, before you click away thinking she’s just lucky, hear me out. Alternative healing practices have been around for centuries, and they’re gaining more recognition and respect in the mainstream medical world. So, let’s dive in and explore why alternative healing isn’t as crazy as some might think.

First off, let’s address the skeptics out there. I get it – the idea of using methods like acupuncture, herbal remedies, or energy healing might sound like something out of a fantasy novel. But as the saying goes, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” And who said that? None other than renowned scientist Stephen Hawking. This quote perfectly sums up the skepticism that often surrounds alternative healing – people dismiss it without truly understanding it.

But here’s the thing – there’s actual scientific evidence to support many alternative healing practices. Take acupuncture, for example. Studies have shown that it can help with chronic pain, nausea, and even depression by stimulating specific points on the body. And herbal remedies? Many pharmaceutical drugs are derived from plants, so it’s not that far-fetched to believe that herbs can have healing properties too.

Another reason why alternative healing isn’t crazy is because it focuses on treating the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms. Traditional medicine often relies on prescribing medications to mask symptoms, but alternative healing looks at the body as a whole and aims to restore balance and harmony.

Plus, let’s not forget about the power of the mind-body connection. Practices like meditation, yoga, and reiki can have profound effects on both our physical and mental well-being. As the famous quote by Hippocrates goes, “The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.” And who can argue with the father of medicine?

Look, I’m not saying you should ditch your doctor and start waving crystals around (although hey, if that’s your thing, more power to you). But what I am saying is that it’s worth keeping an open mind. Who knows? You might just find out like me that the “crazy” stuff isn’t so crazy after all.
