Personally I am not in favor of being diagnosed by someone with the label of an illness.
In our society today, it has become the norm for people to be diagnosed or labelled with the name of an illness. I have found that with many people, this sits like a weight on their shoulders, weighing them down heavily. There are few people that, when diagnosed with a major illness, have the strength of mind, followed by body, to go search out a therapy that can ease their symptoms, sometimes even get rid of their illness altogether.
Many doctors, I could say most doctors, look at the statistics of illnesses and know the usual progression of the disease. This is then placed on the patient's shoulders and installed into their mind. They 'think' there is no solution.
Most doctors do not have the time to research new techniques that are found since their years of studying medicine. They rely majorly on what they learned in medical school and the seminars given by doctors, to update them with medical solutions.
Medical solutions towards disease lean strongly towards drug therapy or surgery.
It is quick and easy for the doctor to write a script and quick and easy for the patient to take the pill. Sometimes this can be a lifesaver for many people and can get them out of a dangerous health crisis. Unfortunately, many drugs have unpleasant side effects.
A Passion for Good Health
It also takes passion for a doctor or a patient to probe and learn to find other methods that can be a good and sometimes better, and have no side effects, than relying on the medicine chest.
A disease diagnosis is a name given to a list of symptoms. There is a list of symptoms for Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetes and autism etc.
The symptoms of these diseases overlap. Many illnesses can have brain fog, anxiety, sore throat, palpitations, difficulty breathing. A label accumulates these symptoms. Once a label is applied to an illness, the person is sent to a doctor dealing in that group of symptoms. It takes a brave doctor to look for a solution outside what is being recommended by his colleagues.
Very, very slowly, people - the patients - are starting to look for other answers as they do not like the outcome that has been given to them eg 'you will not improve anymore' or the side effects of the drugs given to them.
One such modality that has now been recognized by The American Academy of Pediatrics is Neurofeedback. It is a form of brain training. Good results have been documented with ADD, ADHD, epilepsy, anxiety and traumatic brain injuries. They recognize it is as effective as medications for ADD/ADHD and rarely has adverse side effects.
Other modalities that treat many symptoms for varying diseases are
Light Therapy, Sound Therapy, Crystal Therapy, Homeopathy and Flower Essence Therapy.
If you look around you will find many people being treated with different modalities by mainstream doctors and by Complementary therapists. Don't be stuck with a label. Free yourself. Lift that weight by trying different therapies. Find the one that is right for you, one that eases your symptoms.
There is always an answer out there.
Go find it!
My philosophy about health is probably different to that held by many of you. I see the body as energy, not as physical therefore I like to treat it with energy medicines – homeopathy, flower essences, crystal healing, coloured light and aura soma. I have trained in the first four modalities.
Generally speaking I prefer not to use Western medicine as I feel that these drugs only mask what is really wrong with you. Sometimes they are needed and I have used it when needed. I prefer to get better slowly by improving my body and mind rather than take drugs to make me feel better. I feel that if I went along this track I would not learn anything.
When we go to the doctor to ‘make us better’ we are giving our power over to that person. I prefer to keep that power in my own hands.
I also am very aware of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) and try to avoid it as I have been very affected by it over the years.
I have spent countless hours in research and like to share this information with whoever is interested.
With regards to health, I think the most important word in the language is Hope.
When you are searching for a practitioner, the most important skill that person needs to know is Listening.
Marsaru Emoto has studied water for many years. In his laboratory he found that he could see crystals form in frozen water. Moreover, the crystals in water changed under different influences. These influences can be spoken words, pictures or music.
This explains how the energy of flowers, crystals and other objects can have an effect on water. When Dr Bach started making water held essences of flowers and trees he was before the time when science could uphold his ideas. Now we know the truth of the essences and our faith is verified.
The subtle energy of Homeopathy can also be held in water. This energy very quickly absorbs into our body.
This short video will guide you through the journey of the knowledge of water.
This eBook takes a natural approach to improving your health, especially if you have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). CFS is also referred to by different names around the world. It is called ME and Fibromyalgia and CFIDS.
Jacob Teitelbaum MD, a well known world expert on CFS, thinks that there may be many causes of CFS/Fibromyalgia. However the most important thing is for people to start to sleep well, control their pain, to start feeling healthy and be part of a community. Dr Teitlebaum had CFS himself as a young man and has specialised in treatment of the illness using a natural approach.
In my ebook I also use a natural approach to improving health. Medical men seemed to have no answers and I was left to myself to find simple, natural things that worked for me. I share this information in my ebook. I tell the story of my experience with CFS/Fibromyalgia. For a long time it seemed that I would not get better but gradually my health improved.
There are different levels of CFS. Some people feel tired for a few months, some are racked with pain in every nook and cranny, joint and muscle of their body and others suffer from prolonged sore throat, sinusitis and chest infections for months or years on end.
Here are some suggestions of different modalities you can try from crystal healing to flower essences to homeopathy to herbs.
You choose. It's your body, your life.
Fatigue is a symptom of an imbalance in your body or mind, or both. It is not an illness in itself. Fatigue can be temporary or chronic. Temporary means that it is short lived, maybe for hours or a day or two. Chronic means that it is around for a long time and does not go away. This may be for weeks, months or years.
People who are diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have long term fatigue, that is, chronic fatigue. This is an illness that encompasses a group of symptoms. These symptoms may be different for many people, however the over-riding symptom is fatigue.
For some people this fatigue can mean that they cannot work to the same standard that they did previously. For others it may mean that they can only get to work a few hours each day. Others people may have to give up work and can barely manage with general life. And there is the smaller group of people that are so fatigued that they cannot get out of bed for weeks, months or years.
If you are feeling fatigue it is a good idea to visit your medical practitioner to make sure that there is nothing major wrong with you. He/she can detect many things through blood tests these days. If they have no solution for you there are many other avenues that you can follow. But first you need an open mind.
Many people only look to Western medicine to cure all their ills. Many other people in western civilization seek out alternative modalities. Alternative modalities are also called complementary medicine or complementary modalities because they complement, that is, add to general medical treatment. Many people use only these forms of medicine. These modalities encompass the whole body and mind, and do not treat just the one or two symptoms that you might present with to a GP.
Alternative modalities generally prefer preventative treatment and work on strengthening the mind and body and not wait until something goes drastically wrong.
Usually these alternative modalities or treatments do no harm and help people considerably.
What do I Look for in an Alternative Practitioner?
If you decide to look for alternative treatment look for practitioners who have qualifications. Check who has given this qualification. It is also worth noting that there are some modalities where there is nowhere to get qualified. Sometimes you can get great relief from these people also. Use your discernment to decide. Even if the person is not qualified yet you here good reports about them or are getting relief from them, then why not keep seeing them? Why stop just because they do not have a piece of paper to hang on the wall?
Alternative Modalities for YOU to try
Many of these modalities may ease your fatigue. You need to find the right person that you can connect with.

Aura-Soma, healing in a bottle
Aura-soma is a system of healing incorporating colour, herbs and crystals. It has remarkable healing powers.
My granddaughter, then just 3 years old, took a strong liking to my precious book Aura-soma, Healing through color, plant and crystal energy by Irene Dalichow and Mike Booth. She was absolutely crazy for the book and would sit for ages pouring through the few coloured pages of the beautiful bottles. I reluctantly lent the book to her - reluctantly, because I wanted to read it myself. I realised that she needed the colours in it for some reason.
She lived in a draughty old farmhouse with her Mum and Dad where the only heating they had was an open fire. She often helped her Mum clean out the cold ashes from the hearth and then opened the Aura-soma book to pour over it yet again. To this day the book is smeared with ashes and the central colour pages have all come loose from their frequent use. This is the power that these beautiful bottles of colour can have, even on a tiny child.
These beautiful remedies are a system of healing that were made by Vicki Wall. They deal with our total personality aspects - mental, emotional, physical and spiritual.
They come in bottles. Each bottle has two separated colours in it. Just amazing. The colours can be shaken and never mix. If you wish to use these lovely liquids you will need to find a therapist to help you and guide you how to use them. You can be guided by your own sense of colour attraction for the deep healing you need.
What are your favourite colours?
Flower Essences are connected to Physics
The Relationship of Flower Essences to Physics
This is my explanation of how flower essences and physics are related.
Every physical thing in the world vibrates. The cells in all things move or vibrate. These vibrations are so minute that we do not see it happening. The cells in our body are moving and vibrating all the the time. When they cease, we stop being alive.
We cannot see this happening but nevertheless, it happens. Lots of things happen in life that we cannot see or feel or hear, yet they happen. Scientists have now proven that water can hold energy.
Another type of science that is only in its infancy is nanotechnology. This is a science of extremely minute objects, smaller than was ever thought possible until very recent times.
Flower Essences and Homeopathy come into this field of energy. They are such minute forms of energy that scientists are now only slowly beginning to develop the machines to be able to measure this.
Just because we don't know about something does not mean that it is not in existence.
Shake the bottle of Flower Essence Before taking
The energy of flowers is held in the water. On some level in our being we accept this. To stimulate this energy, shake the bottle vigorously a few times or bang it on the palm of your hand before you take the drops. This stimulates the energy and gets it moving again.
The same shaking, stimulating or succussion should also happen before we take Crystal Elixirs or Homepathy. The science behind all these medicines is the same. The substance the energy is in needs stimulation to make it work more effectively.
So try to remember to 'Shake, Rattle and Roll' your essences or elixirs or homeopathy pillules or liquid before you take it and you will get more benefit from it.
Have a great day!
My Heartsong Survival Remedy Essence is a synergy of flower and crystal energy. When these tinctures of blue and orange flowers were mixed together they made an explosion of powerful energy available to us. These were mixed together with flower essences and Crystal elixir to create a power base of healing contained in a bottle. A real genie in a bottle.
This energy is held in water and preserved with alcohol. It comes in a dropper bottle.
How to Use
Shake the bottle. Take 5 drops of the essence ond drop them under the tongue. Preferable used them about 20 minutes away from food or drinks, except water.
This Survival Remedy is wonderful to take in times of stress. It can also help when our stress causes physical symptoms like headaches, exhaustion or sleeplessness.
My Heartsong Survival Remedy Cream is a natural based cream containing Survival Remedy Essence. It is good to apply for skin problems, arthritic and muscular aches and pains, acne and eczema. Rub into areas affected as needed.

Crystal Healing Helps Leg Cramps
For many years, more than I like to remember, I suffered greatly from leg cramps during the night. Sometimes when I had a very bad cramp I was not able to walk properly for up to 3 days afterwards. If you suffer from leg cramps you will know the incredible pain they bring with them.
Then I learned crystal healing. I found such benefit from it that I taught my husband too.
Sharing the Healing
Now I had an ulterior motive to teach him - I wanted him to do the crystal healing on me when I had these cramps because when I had the cramps I was in so much pain that I could not do the healing on myself. I still had the cramps just as badly but after using the crystals for the healing, the next morning I could walk as normal as soon as my feet touched the ground.
Gradually, gradually, my body strengthened and, along with the crystals and many other types of healing and natural remedies, the cramps went away for good.
