Welcome to Peaceful Butterfly Holistic Therapies First Blog.
I thought I'd start my first blog off with how holistic therapies work and how our therapies at Peaceful Butterfly Holistic Therapy in Nottingham can help you.
Holistic therapies work on the principle that the body has a vital force or life energy. It is this force that protects the body from disease and allows it to heal. We often refer to it in a biological context as the "immune system". When the balance of the immune system is disturbed we see the various symptoms of a disease. Holistic therapies aim to help the patient restore the balance, thus allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
Holistic medicine considers the whole person - body, mind, spirit and emotions. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, you can achieve optimal health by gaining proper balance in life and that your whole body is made up of interdependent parts. If one part is not working, all other parts will be affected. In this way, if people have problems (physical, emotional, or spiritual) in their lives it can affect their overall health.
Things like diet, sleep habits, stress, personal problems are all taken into consideration when you pay a visit to a holistic doctor.
