Natural vs Common
When we consider modern medicine, we can hardly imagine something besides medication and surgical procedures. This is so due to the fact that we have based our healing methods on Western medicine, neglecting natural treatments and/or considering them pointless and futile.
However, in certain corners of the world, there are people who are absolutely healthy and have never visited a doctor in their lives, nor have they used pills for any possible kind of treatment. The only thing these people rely on is nature and the mediations which grow around them.
Natural medicine focuses on using herbs and other natural sources for treating illnesses. Also, it focuses on your body as a whole, considering both your emotional well-being as well as physical one. Moreover, it often gives advice about how to establish your physical and mental balance through meditation and other relaxation techniques.
Think about it – each time you went to church worried about your health, seeking help from your divinity, you have spent time in silence, concentrating on your thoughts and the surrounding sensation of serenity. Thus, you were meditating. Many times, this process was helpful. So, meditation works, all you need to do is concentrate and dedicate you full attention to listening to your body.
More Ways of Treating Stress Problems in a Natural Manner
Even psychologists and psychotherapists use forms of meditation for their treatments. Visualization is a commonly practiced one, where you are to motivate yourself towards progress and overcoming problems through imagining your success in advance.
Basically, all meditation focuses on is concentration on the present moment, analyzing the past and seeking answers for your problems in tranquility and complete relaxation. Therefore, once you decide to try meditation, it would be best to turn off your phone, computer, light and lock the door, allowing you to fully indulge into this regenerating experience.
Also, you can meditate while walking. Walk slowly and be completely relaxed, focusing on your breathing. Alternatively, you might give transcendental, flame or breathing meditation a try.
Transcendental meditation uses mantras which are words or phrases which enable you to enter a state of complete relaxation and control over your thought processes. Repeating your mantras can help you relax and relieve your body of stress.
Flame meditation involves lighting a candle in a dark room and observing the flame for a couple of minutes during which you are supposed to solely direct your thoughts towards the flame itself and nothing else. Then, you blow the candle out and visualize the flame as vividly as possible.
Finally, visualization requires you to reach a state of tranquility through remembering moments of happiness from the past, living them out once again. This provides high levels of relaxation and helps in restoring concentration and skills, as well as self-conficence.
