Despite the new treatments, the development of scientific research and the information given by doctors and the media, people are still looking for alternative ways of healing and improving themselves. Meditation is just one of those ways.

One of the main reasons is the high cost of new drugs and considering the combination of price and drugs’ side effects, it seems logical for the patients to look for alternative therapies. Please note that we are not advising anyone to overlook conventional medicine in any way, we are merely listing some of the lesser known alternatives.

Here are 5 drug free ways of healing ourselves.

1. Bioresonance.

Bioresonance is a painless biophysical diagnostic and therapeutic procedure that could be applied to any age and has no side effects.

It is based on the hypothesis that cells are controlled by electromagnetic fields. Thus, the application of healthy frequencies to rebalance the body would lead the body to cure itself. Bioresonance proved to be effective in the management and treatment of several diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, pain syndromes, allergies and respiratory diseases.

2. Foot Zonology – Foot Zoning.

Foot zonology is an alternative therapy that targets different points in the feet.

According to the theory that supports this therapy, the signal system on the feet are light vessels that are connected to the gene code in the cells of the body and from the DNA-code to our inner blueprint. Using foot zonology, the practioner can evaluate physical and psychological health and conditions such as allergies and toxicity.

After this evaluation, the necessary diet changes are recommended to the patient and combined with some herbs result to the alleviation of the disease. A session of foot zoning typically lasts for 45-60 minutes. Supporters of Foot zonology claim that this therapy contributes on body balance, increased energy levels and it also renews body cells.

3. Sound Therapy

Sound therapy is a method used by the participants to play or listen to sounds and have a positive experience, which they may subjectively report as physical, energetic, spiritual or emotional. Unlike music which is just an organized sound, the Sound therapy deconstructs music into pure sound, harnessing the knowledge that sound can have a powerful effect on our emotions.

Sound therapy can contribute against: dizziness-vertigo, blocked ear, ringing in the ears, communication problems, insomnia, anxiety and depression.

4. Sunlight and Light Therapy.

Sunlight therapy was used as a medicine in periods when infectious diseases were commonplace and the only defense against them was a strong immune system.

Sunlight is the major source of Vitamin D, which regulates the immune system, increases bone density and calcium absorption and prevents diabetes and even obesity. In areas or periods that sunlight is not available, it could be somehow replaced by light therapy.

Light therapy, also known as phototherapy, is exposure to light that is brighter than indoor light but not as bright as direct sunlight. The use of bright light therapy in psychiatry is the treatment of seasonal affective disorder, which is a form of depression.

Other potential uses of sunlight and Light therapy: Against skin irritations like acne, detoxification, hormone regulation and many others.

5. Chi Nei Tsang.

Chi Nei Tsang was developed by ancient Taoists to recycle and transform negative energies that obstruct the internal organs and cause knots in the abdomen.

It is a method of abdominal massage targeting on the efficient work of internal abdominal organs, which potentially results to improved emotional and physical health. The Chi Nei Tsang theory supports that unresolved emotional issues are stored in the digestive system and that poor “emotional digestion” is one of the causes of bad health.

According to the Universal Healing Tao Chi Nei Tsang, this therapy strengthens the immune system. In addition, it is used to treat chronic pain, constipation and bloating. Moreover, it is a therapy of body de-toxification necessary for all ages.

To sum up, drugs are not panacea. There are natural ways to heal ourselves. The application of the right therapy by a specialized practioner might have impressing results. Although natural-alternative treatments are not often supported by solid scientific evidence, they could assist conventional medicine and improve patients’ health.
