Ultimate Alternative Medicine Secrets - Dr Oz show 9/6/10
Fascinating Alternative Medicine. I took notes and want to share and added my additional notes for more details.
What is Alternative Medicine?
Alternative medicine that is not used in the Western Culture that has been used in other Countries, sometimes for centuries.
Secret #1 Help for Arthritis. Mud Baths made of Clay, peat and Sulfur Water.
Has anti inflammatory benefits.
My Notes: Here's a great site about clay mud baths. http://www.eytonsearth.org/clay-baths.php
Secret #2 Aromatherapy. Can be used on pressure points on the body and inhaled to bypass the cortex and go straight into the sensory area's of the brain. Helps with reducing stress.
My notes: Aromatherapy with Essential Oils
Secret #3 Herbs Such as Sage and Black Cohosh. Good for women going through menopause.

I'd suggest two products by Young Living for women going through menopause called:
Secret #4 Yoga- The breathing done in Yoga can drop blood pressure.
My notes: While there are I'm sure many physical benefits of Yoga, I do not recommend the spiritual aspect of Yoga.
Secret #5 Inferred Sauna two times a week can help prevent colds and flu as viruses don't do well in temperatures 80 degrees and above. It's why viruses love the Winter season. Be sure to drink plenty of water an be well hydrated before going into any Sauna.
Secret #6 Chinese method called "Cupping" It helps the blood to flow to the area that needs healing of joint pain and brings blood flow to that area. Increased blood flow helps the healing process.
Notes: I'm not sure what to think of cupping seeing how this is the first time I've been exposed to the idea. Here is more info: http://www.chinesecupping.net/history_of_chinese_cupping.html
Secret #7 Reiki (Energy Healing) A balancing process. Helps your system become balanced. Here's an audio explaining Reiki: http://www.reiki.org/Movies/Movie1.html
My Notes: Too new age for me.
I'd much rather use the laying on of hands taught in the Bible as a sound principle of healing along with anointing oils (pure).
Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in every area of your life!
