Making the Leap to an Alternative Belief

Making the Leap to an Alternative Belief
There are certain times in your life when it is necessary to take a leap of faith. These kinds of times can feel like standing at the edge of a precipice.

Some of us take this leap quite easily, while others are paralyzed at the thought. Making a leap into the unknown is scary for anyone because you just don't know what is on the other side.

Just as it is scary to take a leap of faith into the unknown, for some, it is scary to make that leap of faith into an alternative belief.

Making a leap of faith can be exceedingly difficult for those of us with control issues because the very act of embracing uncertainty requires that we trust and surrender.

One Step at a Time


Rest assured, making a leap to an alternative belief is not as hard as it seems, and as a matter of fact, it just might be easier than you think. What most people may not realize is that you don't have to jump in all at once, as if it were an all or nothing proposition.

The truth is that you can just as easily dip your toes into the water and leave it at that. There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to alternative therapies or beliefs.

You can even combine alternative therapies with traditional therapies. The medical community does not always have the answers, so sometimes it is necessary to seek your own answers.

If you feel like you need to seek something outside of your comfort zone, take one small step. You might be surprised at how amazing you might feel after trying something simple like a chakra clearing.

The age of information has made it much easier for people to try different things, all in the privacy of their own home. You can certainly visit a practitioner, and for alternative therapies, such as massage therapy, it is obviously preferable.

You can purchase hypnosis CDs online and even get a psychic reading over the phone if that is something you have always wanted to try.

The only prerequisite you may want to keep in mind is doing your homework because there are a lot of practitioners out there, and you want to make sure you are going to someone who has some kind of expertise.

Ancient Healing


Most alternative therapies have been around for many years, so chances are there is a lot of information out there in whatever subject you desire.

Many common day medications and treatments are based off of practices that have been around for hundreds of years, so probably you have been exposed to alternative therapies without even realizing it.

The use of herbs in modern times is a common practice, and many of the medications used today have a long history of usage as herbal treatments, including aspirin, opium, digitalis and quinine.

The World Health Organization (WHO) states that about 80 percent of some Asian and African countries currently include herbal treatments as part of the main source of health care.

Treatment modalities like blood chemistry analysis, also referred to as blood nutrition, are innovative approaches based on science. Blood tests have been used for many years to help physicians diagnose patients, so blood chemistry analysis, although quite new, is not such a stretch.

If you don't find the answers you seek within traditional healing modalities, having something like a blood chemistry analysis might help you discover the perfect treatment plan or diagnosis because the goal of the treatment is to offer a clear plan for optimal health.

Some alternative therapies, such as chiropractic care, are becoming more mainstream with chiropractic being the third-largest licensed health care profession.

Meet Dr. Palmer


Dr. David Palmer was the founder of chiropractic more than 100 years ago, and his ideas were based on the big idea that good health can be, and should be, sustained naturally, without surgery or drugs. 

There are thousands of chiropractors that practice throughout the world, and they are based on the fact that one should be able to rely on a natural, drugless, nonsurgical type of care that allows the body to heal itself.

Dr. Palmer, a teacher and healer, did the first recorded spinal adjustment on September 18, 1895. Many people swear by this method even though chiropractic care is based on the mind-body and spirit philosophy, which promotes natural healing, which is considered an alternative belief.

People are drawn to the idea of alternative beliefs because it empowers one to self-heal, which is an appealing concept.

Practices such as naturopathy, which is a system of medicine that is based on the healing power of nature, uses a variety of techniques and therapies, such as behavioral change, nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathic remedies and even sunlight.

Naturopathy is based on the premise that the body has the ability to heal itself and people can be empowered to make lifestyle changes that support better health.

Naturopathy is based more on the idea of prevention and education, rather than reacting to specific ailments, much like many alternative therapies.

You Always Have The Choice


Many alternative therapies are becoming more mainstream with insurance companies even stepping up to the plate and covering alternative treatments.

In the end, you might be surprised at how effective alternative treatments can be, so if you are having trouble making that leap of faith, remember that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
