When we hear natural healing we always think of herbal medicine, but that is not the only type of natural healing one can do to promote over all well being.
The body and mind respond to easy methods that stimulate the body to work better, for instance dry skin brushing helps to open the skin pores and eliminate waste through the skin as well exfoliating the dead skin cells of the surface of the skin, allowing fresh oxygen to be received by the body.
Little methods like the above go along way with healing the body, especially and I mean ESPECIALLY when done with mindfulness. Mindfulness is living in the moment, the here and now, being absolutely aware of yourself from the tips of your fingers to the tops of your toes. Being aware of the movement of the body, the breath and being aware of your emotions. For instance, if you are sitting be aware that you are sitting, hear and feel your heartbeat and observe your breath. All these little observations bring your mind & soul directly into your body and brings peace and joy into your environment.
Below are some natural healing protocols you can safely do at home today!

including Ancient Chinese, Roman and Egyptian civilisations. Hydrotherapy was first
introduced to the West in 1940s to treat pain and minor discomforts with cold and hot water
One brilliant hydrotherapy is cold showers! Cold showers kick starts the immune system and promotes fat burning! Even jumping in the cold sea for a few minutes is considered hydrotherapy.

Man recognised that cleansing fluids could be inserted into the rectum by watching the sacred Ibis in Egypt. It was seen to take up water in its beak, so curved that it could insert it into its anus to clean out decaying material. The word ‘enema’ is said to have come from a Greek word meaning ‘I throw it in’,
Enemas are a fantastic way to help the colon release toxic waste that is held in the colon walls, especially for those that consume meat, cleansing the colon will assist an overall well functioning of the body. But we know that this is rather scary, I mean inserting anything in the rectum is scary!
